Joel Gilbert and Eric Discuss One of the Democrats' Biggest Lies

"You actually care about the black underclass in the inner cities in America, you would never ever, ever vote for a Democrat. This is the irony is that the Democrats have somehow been successful in selling the lie that they care about these people when the reality is. And this is the history of the Democratic Party going back to when they were, they were the pro slavery party in the 19th century. Obviously Lincoln rose up first Republican to stand against them. All through their history, they really have been the actual racists, but they have because of principally because of Lyndon Johnson in 65. They've been able to sell themselves as the party that cares for the poor people that cares for the people of color in the inner cities. And you're telling me, again, that we have tons of evidence that the opposite is the case. It's kind of amazing. I'm sorry that most Americans don't know this, but we need to know this. Yeah, well, what they've developed really since the 80s is the very racist idea that if they put as a frontman, someone who looks like them, another black person that black people will assume that the black person on the Democrat party ticket would have their interests and have their back. It's always proving the opposite. Barack Obama did nothing for minorities. Black people. He had to invoke race and drum up the Trayvon Martin thing in 2012 because blacks were even then not on board to vote for Obama again. So this is the concept that they pushed is let's get someone who's a frontman and that's what Michelle Obama did for the University of Chicago medical center. They hired her to keep blacks out of the emergency room because some of them didn't have insurance.

Brittney Griner Hates America, yet She Needs America

"A moment ago, I spoke about the WNBA star her name is Brittany griner. Who was arrested at an airport in Russia. This is the same Britney Reiner, who said, about the national anthem, I'm not going to be out there for the national anthem. She said two years ago, if the league referring to the WNBA, continues to want to play at that fine, it'll be all season long, I'll not be out there. I feel like more are probably going to do the same thing. I can only speak for myself. And she said earlier, yeah, we're here to play basketball, but basketball doesn't mean anything in a world where you just can't live. We can't wake up and do whatever we want to do. Go for a run, go to the store and buy some candy. I presume she referring to Trayvon Martin. Drive your car without fear of being wrongfully pulled over. I just want to challenge everybody to do more. Write the story that might be tough. Take a chance, ask a question that's tough. Don't let it be silent. We don't get asked enough what's going on in our communities, and I think that's a shame.

Critical Race Theory: What Is It?

"Is critical Race theory? Yes. So critical Race theory began around the 19 seventies with the law professor Derrick Bell and a couple of other legal scholars trying to understand the ways. That race and American law intersected how history of slavery and segregation was sort of codified and continue to influence American law Today. Adam Harris is a staff writer at the Atlantic. His most recent article was titled The GOP S Critical Race Theory Obsession, Harris says. One of the first instances we started to see critical race theory being used as a political bludgeon was in the early 19 nineties, President Bill Clinton nominated Atlantic near to the Justice Department. She was a legal scholar who done a lot of work and voting rights and conservatives effectively used her previous work in voting rights to sort of tag her as someone who was arguing for racial quotas in voting for the amount of seats that people should hold on city councils. They also tagged her as championing a radical school of thought. Called Critical Race Theory. Amid mounting pressure from conservatives, President Clinton has withdrawn his nomination of Lani Guinier to head up the Justice Department's civil rights division, claiming veneers writings lent themselves to views that he could not embrace the president cut her loose rather than fight a divisive battle on Capitol Hill. From there you have A kind of dormant period. It's not really until after George Zimmerman was acquitted in the murder of Trayvon Martin, the Jesse Jackson like race profiteer race grievance industry says everything's about race. America's a racist nation. You see a mention of critical race theory after a video surfaces of President Barack Obama hugging Derek Bell in 1990, you know When he was a law student at Harvard Law. The president is actually kind of aligning himself here with a well known campus radical. There is a conservative back last thing that he believes in this radical critical race theory. And then they're a kind of a couple of mentions up until 2020 shortly after George Floyd is murdered, You start to see a

It's a principal so glaringly simple at its radical. Burn is an admittedly weird ambassador for the idea of connection. He isn't what you'd call a naturally warm presence at least not in Earth terms even at age sixty eight, he's still like an. Learning. The rules of the planet his awkwardness is his brand but his desire to connect is robust and had vitalize is everything that happens onstage during American Utopia. no-one initial has one job.

Smith was watching membership numbers rise after the death of George Floyd may but black people have been using guns for hunting and protection for a long time historian say that Harriet Tubman carried firearms so did the Black Panthers in the nineteen sixties these days according to a Gallup poll released last year nineteen percent of black people own guns. Smith says his members are not monolithic. Some women join because they've been sexually assaulted some women join because they wanNA teach you some men join because they want to just get really good at self defense people are joining now for different. Reasons some want to support the National African American Gun Association Financially Smith says for others it's more spiritual I. Think people were looking for a home a place where you can kind of event you can belong where you felt your mind having a relief of some sort Bruce Tomlin a truck driver who lives in New Mexico describes his decision to buy a gun response to stress. I'll just say amounting society He felt that way after watching cellphone video showing the death of Ahmad arbitrary a black man who was shot while jogging through neighborhood in Georgia earlier this year don't. Go around arm the rest of my life. That's because he's been feeling under attack for years after the two thousand, twelve killings of Trayvon Martin, for example, and after the mass shooting at a black church in Charleston in two thousand, fifteen by a white supremacist goes like I can just be mine them all business. And if somebody who's a racist, just decide to roll up on me gun meet down. As is decided that like if I go out I'M GONNA go out shooting back. But now that he's an actual gun owner, it's not so straightforward day to day of feel like I can defend myself better defend my loved ones. But I usually get comfortable having it sometime he does not want to kill or injure anyone open carry makes them nervous I would never take my gone to the grocery store and carry around inside or anything like that. But on the other hand I could be in a situation where needed still out in the car or whatever I just like knowing that I have it gun ownership is complicated for Tomlin especially because he's black if he was stopped by police says, he probably wouldn't tell them that he had a gun. And catch trailer says the same thing giving the example of philander casteel he was shot during a traffic stop for years ago in Minnesota after telling an officer that he had a firearm, his car casteel did have a permit to carry it. Cat Trailer believes that gun cost him his life we're not given a fair shake when these conversations are happening automatically worsen tensions are assumed just because we're black, we're gun owners for both of these new black gun owners.

Freedom Summer: Datra Dee Dee Jackson

"Many. Of the faces that we have seen over the past few weeks leading the black lives matter movement have been those of young black women theatric DVD. Jackson is one of those dynamic women speaking truth to power as a leader, a black youth project one hundred while attending Florida International University. She became active at the height of the murder of Trayvon. Martin was led to founding the local chapter, a dream defenders at her university. Today, we chat with Yatra, how young people are seizing and owning their political power at this moment. I'm really excited to talk to you today I've been such a big fan of B. y. p.. One hundred in really excited that you were able to join us. So thank you. So I I want to talk about the fact that at such a young age you have done so much for the black community and the Black Youth Community you've done organizing as a CO founder or of the Durham Chapter of the Black Youth Project hundred supporting black mamas bail out, which is one of the favourite causes that I donate to and just so much more especially during the racial pandemic that we've been in these past few weeks. What brought you to this work? What made you wake up one day and say, okay as a young person, I have to get involved as a black young person I have to get involved. So I am from Philly or and throughout my years I was in public schools I grew single mom. Single mom household of three girls and. So grew up in inundated southwest philly end of there's many things of my experience that really informs where end today but that's not quite where I was politicized. I was in Grad School. Down in Miami Around Twenty, twelve, twenty thirteen and so I, was living in Florida. At the same time as the murder of Trayvon Martin and all of the marches in the energy that was being built up in that time and I was pretty apolitical leading up to that point and was going to a black sitting union meeting because our school where I know black people. So the black student union because that's where we were and this organization out to folks from dream, defenders averages a state based organization down in Florida Cain ended presentation on the work that they were doing and police brutality and immigration. Reform. School to prison pipeline. We're talking about these different issues in was really activated started to pay attention. To. That as an opportunity to be partners to the apartment organizations actually doing the work that was really where I started really a moment that similar to where now I love your path that you just talked about and I feel it's so important because A lot of young people you know when I talk to them, they just feel that can I just show up? Can I do it in? That's really what you did, and that's what a lot of the people involved with the. One hundred have done and I would love for you to talk a little bit more about the work that you're doing. In particular I'm a fan of the safe. We save campaign, which is something that I also think is a very timely conversation that we need to have in this country. Yes. So she said we save is one hundred national campaign It's our transformative moving campaign to end gender-based violence against like women. Like girls in black gender, non conforming people especially comes. In there is more origin even how we got to deciding orange she sees as national as I national campaign we had this huge visibility of black boys and black men that were being murdered brutalized by the police It was carrying this very long history erasure, black women, black girls, an our stories in the way that we have been brutalized by the police, and so we wiping one hundred among many other organizations really uplifted. Hashtag say her name. As a demand to also remember the stories of black women and black girls be harmed on a regular basis by the police and really pushing a bit of an intervention into the visibility of who stories are being told. And so we help these different events honoring black women and black girls who stories were not being pushed to the front and also talked about the a specific nature of black women in the way that the system harms us that doesn't that doesn't necessarily apply to black men in black police in. So we've been pushing. On, lifting up story of Ricky Boyd Renisha McBride. Happens Melissa Alexander. In just a number of Ions Stanley Jones might hall that list goes on online. Envy making sure that that this was also part of this time. The stories of black women grows they're are always forgotten

Wendy Osefo on the Black Lives Matter protests, and the 2020 election

"I'm Jim Taylor skinner, and this is the electorate. On this episode. A have a conversation with Wendy Osafo when he is a political commentator and a professor of education at Johns. Hopkins. University, she also served on the Obama Administration's anti-poverty initiative when he joins me to talk about everything from the current political climate to the recent black lives matter protests. We also discussed recent polling of the twenty twenty presidential election, and of course, many many failings of the trump administration. So without further ADO, here's my conversation with Wendy Assefa. Welcome to the broadcast. Thank you for having me. I really wanted to talk to you about this moment in history because I saw a tweet, the other day that really got my attention I think it was from Congresswoman Anna Presley and she said that the civil rights movement didn't in it didn't end and that we're living right now it's ongoing and I think that that's pretty you know accurate what's happening in the streets with black lives matter protests you know what do you think this moment actually means I think this moment right now is a defining moment in our country. And our nation I think that what we have to realize is that without cameras, this has been the backdrop of the lives of black people for years is just so happens that the death of George Floyd was videotaped but this has happened so many times in enough is enough I was told people you know I'm so happy that black lives matter has become a battle cry that people more aware about now in twenty twenty but I remember marching when black lives matters started before was even Hashtag with the death of Trayvon Martin it was the death and killing trayvon Martin that. Ignited the hash black lives matter and so I say all that to say, you know the civil rights movement was a time that we look to as a historic time society and we came through that as a nation but it hasn't ended because just evolved in different ways, and that's what people have to understand and I'm just so excited to see different faces, different races, different backgrounds really fighting now because it's going to take our nation to come together as one in order for us to end systemic racism. Now you're absolutely right it has evolved right? That's the perfect word. For it and when I think about you know what you just said marching when Trayvon Martin was murdered a movement was kind of in its infancy. But what I think is really interesting now is the reaction from conservatives now that people are marching around the world for black lives matter they their reactions were really extreme Ryan, I mean it's like splashed holy water on them like what do you think that they think black lives matter actually means what does it mean to them? You hear people saying like not in my town you're not gonNA bring black lives matter into Maya. Town. Yeah I think is really interesting in the way I. Answer. This question may actually be controversial I think that they are very clear what black lives matter means I think they are very clear but black lives matter stands for, but they don't want to accept what black lives matters means because if they do that means that they are accepting that this country's inherently racist and that's the truth and as uncomfortable truth we are saying black lives matter because black lives are the ones that are under attack were saying black lives matter because the statistics show that black and Brown children in schools are treated differently. That's why we're seeing black. Lives matter but you see it's not just black lives. Matter is black lives matter because black lives have been treated as less than for so many years in this country. So I think that conservatives are fully aware of what this means I think that is willful ignorance for them to say, no black lives with not only to accept that is not the Hashtag that the issue is the premise of the Hashtag doesn't issue and I think that when we're having these conversations with people, these are people who are elected Congress people they're pretty smart. You know they're pretty erudite nature, and so you know these are the same. Individuals who say because they're conservatives that a baby's life matters at the beginning of Jess station. You don't have to come out of the womb for your life to matter but soon as your created your life matters and therefore they're against abortion. So if they're able to understand that a baby's life matters at the beginning of creation than I'm pretty sure that they're competent enough to understand that black lives matter because black lives are the ones under

Raising Anti-Racist Children - A Holistic Approach (with Kristen Coggins)

"As a black woman. You know you, we. We see so much of this closer up fries, you know. And so when it all started to kind of happen, if bell very much like here we go, it's the same cycle. It's been happening. You know for us. I think the first one I remember was Trayvon Martin. You kind of get used to seeing these traumatizing enriches morning with the family improvising so hard, and then seeing the person gets off Ford ever happened, and that's like a crush again, so it's like it happens over and over and over so you begin to lose hope. You know you're like here. It goes you know and so I kind of gotten to a point where I. Just it was too much I. had shut it out I can, I cannot deal with. This is just going to happen all over again. This time. It feels different. Especially Lists Young Equal Day are speaking up in a way that is so power phone so direct in so hopeful in. It's like get it. They are getting it in their speaking up to their their parents, you know. People that joint tic TAC over the quarantine so I'll scroll and grow in. Exposing these conversations actual conversations that they're having appearance in. It's like wow, it's on them. Getting kicked out their houses. It's kind of you know. The, writing black lives matter on the chunk of their driveway. Mean they are like they are living the revolution at home in that is so hard for at in and so many of them have actually said they're getting through to their parents gives me chills ungrateful I. Am Hopeful We may evolve me, too, so yeah, we have this wonderful generation Z. of heard them. Them called. I Gen. My children are in that generation, and now we have the next generation that you and a lot of the people that listen to this podcast or reading. How do we honor this work with them? How do we ensure that we're raising anti-racist children? What can we do? I really mostly just WANNA. Listen to what you have to say about this. You know civilization. It seems like it's being presented with. This divine opportunity to evolve in it's so painful yet hopeful you know for it systematically for centuries what have been oppressed in this country whether the from implicit bias over covert racism being traumatize, and it's like we've reached a point where it seems like people are ready to say enough is enough and are collectively pushing each other to be on the right side of this journey. And with that, it's like folks WanNa know what what can we do and so I have two answers that I have prepared for today. One is see yourself. The second is seared charter. There's a Colt by Rene. Brown, it says we cannot give our show dron what we do not have. We cannot give our children. What we do not have in an to know what you have. You have to see yourself and that requires being mindful. People instantly get defensive if they're raises because it doesn't feel good to be labeled, and especially not that all it's like no, that's not me. I don't accept that you know I'm nice to people. Treat them how I want to be treated. I give him a shirt off my back, but it's like would if you took the time to look at it from a mindfulness approach. There is this great Buddhist tool for minds s? It's an acronym called rain recognize. Allow investigate with kindness in in night into the Keisha. You know you might find yourself in situations where a decision you may or something you said as you being caught out or being respected for being racist, or maybe there is no call out. Maybe you're just something you did or experience, so which you do as first you're to recognize what is happening in my body right now. Does my stomach haven't Iki him? How about my face? My chest? Am I having desire to distract or remove myself from the situation? Just recognizing everything that you're feeling can be very our. Next year to allow those feelings to just be. It can be hard to sit with discomfort. We want to push it out of our bodies, but don't fight them. And maybe even picture is comfort looks like.

"Trayvon Martin was beating up up at the time he was shot now that to me maybe that was justified maybe it wasn't but that's not the same as George Floyd who was murdered and tortured by police off by pulled by the police officer and you know all the all the circumstances are different me Michael brown because his own death by his behavior you can't say that about laquan McDonald in Chicago or George Floyd now George Floyd had a shall we say a record but none the less so what he was killed and tortured to death wrongfully and that should not happen irrespective of the fact that it was under arrest he should not be killed for that the end yet and what's going on with Mike Michael Gregory and Travis what I'm out Aubrey to me that doesn't look like a good shooting at all what a jury's going to decide what is right what is wrong in that case but all these are not the same I and somehow the me media is in the business of separating the races in order to make sure that their philosophy stays in charge when it comes to Washington and that this is more about getting getting a trump out of office then anything else they've tried so many other things they think this is the one to get him out of office and let's face it the president tweets in a way that often I don't find acceptable but its policies work and if there's some institutional racism in Minneapolis who's who's in charge of that those are the Democrats and there's institutional racism races racism in Chicago or Philadelphia or Austin or Dallas or Atlanta or Washington DC those are all calls by Democrats but the media doesn't see it that way do they no Sir they don't they kill that retired black jeep we had a great career a great light Chevy G. years old they murdered him with at your store nobody talks about him nobody cares that he got killed was murdered I get the other guy was murdered but so was this black sheep who was a good man hi I believe his murder why we assume the murder was arrested about four five hours ago there was also that in uniform a security guard at the Rodham Dellums federal courthouse in Oakland on or ten days ago he was simply on duty in uniform somebody walked up and shot him in the back of the head now I I don't know is who knows his name he's lost because he can't his death cannot be used to advance a political agenda and so therefore his death means nothing to the mainstream media it means a lot to me means a lot to you means nothing to them but we'll take a break break call thank you let's continue with more bill Cunningham with you every Sunday night.

"Children centric and could Torah went to protest together as a family separatist twenty two the tourist seventeen you're brought them both to a Trayvon Martin rally in twenty twelve again the question why does this moment feel different I think it has a lot to do with timing I think that since we had an opportunity to be home they were all you know a lot down we don't have the distractions is a we're all paying attention is what's going on now I'm not only that we have the empathy bonus and with the ball that's gone on that we've been feeling compute well you know being sick and dying and all that kind of stuff I think right now we're really polarized it gave us an opportunity to really sit and look and paint I'm here with people how do you feel about this particular time in history do you see a changing I think that they can change more because now we have the you come in and and we also have social media on our side so I think we're seeing a lot of the truth now social media is a he is YouTube channels that videos and music of all black artists and that goes towards like the fine so you can find ways to donate without having money could finally talk about have you go to a protest is always somewhere you can get your Allen let people know how important this is driving to New York City this week with storefronts boarded up and roads blocked for curfews was a little bit scary but when I hit times square and saw several police cars I felt safer and then a friend asked me how would you feel if you were black Cedric said he has the exact opposite reaction every time he sees a police car yeah it it sounds like a lot of soccer body almost makes you like I think you have to make sure everything's on point you have to make sure everything stays on point you have to make sure you don't make any by the quick move yes seven moves like you have to just make sure that everything is good for the officer basically how do you train how do you teach that to your to your child the only thing you can say you know just just be armed with knowledge no you're right and that's what we you know try to teach them is understand what your rights are even though sometimes you know all your residential violated but you have to be armed with the information and the knowledge and it's a shame you have to maintain a certain what was your composure right in the corner where it's inspired a flight that's a natural response so when you're under a perceived threat you're you're automatically your adrenaline is on but as a young black male you're expected to you know do something that goes against your natural instinct to fight or take flight so I don't remember when I just got pulled over and I felt safe after finally this is a pandemic there's a virus out there that is hitting the black and brown community with the deadly fierceness so why let your children go protest with all kinds of other people around some wearing masks to some not yes every bone in my mind body was was nervous but I felt like I had to do it out I can't you know the young adults you know they they they're part of this world the experience these things and others at the trust that they would make the proper decisions use the proper precautions when out there and just use common sense but to me some of that had to be done not sure Jones with her children Cedric and could Torah the not the only ones having uncomfortable conversations these days how else are these events affecting the cornerstone of American society the family while the parents are having trouble discussing these things with their kids ABC's Amy Robach and A. B. C.'s chief medical correspondent Dr Jennifer Ashton discussed it with psychiatrist Dr Janet Taylor how do you explain to your kids about the current atmosphere what they're seeing what they're hearing the protests and racism well you can save your kids listen you know how you feel when you ask me to do something and I say no and you say why and I say because I said so all these protesters fan that's not good enough because I say so it's not good enough so you taking to the streets they take and use their mouths and in a thoughtful and for the most part very orderly way saying that we disagree and that that is a natural part of life and we can teach our kids to think and to how to disrupt when they're feeling something that they don't agree with so it's a really opportune teaching moment about how to be creative creative thinker and how to stand up for when you disagree with something and Janet you always say that obviously these tough conversations have to be age appropriate but how do you recommend that we talk to our children about the police in general what we don't want our children to be afraid of the police and we just say you know how sometimes there are people who may have the right intention but they do bad things most of the police are good people you can go to them for help and most of us still do but there are some police officers who made bad choices but we want our kids to see the police as a safe entity as a safe structure because they do help us Jan just mentioned the age appropriateness so I ask what's the youngest age you should start talking with your child about these difficult topics well as important as it is to talk about difficult topics like racism which we know has existed for a long time you know when kids are three or four as a child of color they will experience incidents whether it's at a classmate that says something a teacher so whether we know or not as parents it's happening so what we can do is expose our children of all colors to books that have characters that are black listen to their conversations and when your child says that something has happened to them because of the color of their skin or because of their hair texture we need to listen and we need to show them that we are doing something about it doesn't mean being angry but showing them in a calm thoughtful way about how to handle an insult or slight makes specially to other adults to make sure it doesn't happen again we can no longer ignore the pain that racism causes to our children and is there ever a situation where you would recommend actually shielding their child from racism as a topic I would never recommend that you shield your child from racism is a topic because as important as it is the conversation about racism it's about anti racism and what does that mean that means that we teach our kids not that we're all alike but the we can have the same values and our differences can suggest beauty our differences can be something that we learned so when there is an incident that is unfair with there's an incident where somebody tries to use our power in a way that's destructive we need to address it as a teachable moment and in terms of those teachable moments how can parents explain in the best way to their children about their race and about other races one way is to stop using the word race which we know is a social construct it's a meaningless term talk about people in terms of their ancestry their history their culture how they see themselves in terms of their ethnic origin and Janet I mean mental health professionals like yourself are are in short supply as it is what resources would you recommend to help us start this conversation about race well I just came across the great organization its embrace race dot org that has wonderful points for parents to talk with their kids and also buying books that have different characters you know all of the snow a snowy day as were Keith was written in nineteen sixty two it's the number one book taken out of the New York Public Library and what does it show a young black kid Peter who's going out to the white snow use books like that and just see how your kids react but show them haven't experienced different cultures and different races and books are a great way to do that ABC's Amy Robach and Dr Jen Ashton with psychiatrist Dr Janet Taylor coming up taking a knee and taking the Bible how both of taking on new symbolism this.

"The other ninety nine point eight percent or okay I don't want anybody to be killed for any reason but every object of study has indicated that big city police departments come in contact with large numbers of assailants as described by their victims as African American and therefore one might say that a police appear to grossly kill white Americans at much higher number than blacks I don't want anybody killed for any reason but the Washington post has kept this going since twenty fifteen since Trayvon Martin the more must prove the obvious that obviously everyone knows that black black defendants are treated more harshly by big city police departments because of the color of their skin everybody knows that but it's not true but don't make a difference everybody knows that and so the news media all the coverage that way which is let's do a deep dive and the persons that big city police departments come in contact with the color of those persons are well known because they keep records on these things is not like whites are six times the population of blacks there for six time more white should be killed now it depends you come in contact with and every day the seven hundred thousand police officers officers have millions of incidents every day of contact with African Americans every day over the course of three years that's a billion contacts you can always point out one two three four but there's millions of contacts daily without incident and the great majority of individuals that big city police departments come in contact with our African American as identified by the victims of crime and so it's obvious that the blanket media coverage gives the wrongful impression that big city police departments controlled by Democrats are racist and that is simply repeated as the big lie often enough that most people now of course believe it because they that's all they hear the reality is different completely different if San.

The eerie similarities between the killings of Ahmaud Arbery and Trayvon Martin

"I'm Jonathan Cape Part and this is Cape Up Benjamin crump. In attorney for the family of Ahmad arbitrary is perfectly clear on his view of what happened to the twenty five year old Black Man jogging near his Georgia home. On February twenty third chased him let community until they caught up with and then they executed him like a modern day. Mitch if crump's name sounds familiar. It's because he was the lawyer for the family of Trayvon Martin. The seventeen year old shot and killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer in Florida on February. Twenty Sixth Twenty twelve listen to crump talk about the eerie similarities between the February. Twenty twenty killing of the MoD arbitrary and the February twenty twelve killings of Trayvon Martin. Right Down Attorney Benjamin crump thank you very much for coming on the PODCAST. Thank you fabric down at their decades covering. They're for the story. So you and I got to know each other eight years ago because of the the killing of trayvon Martin and the similarities between the killing of Trayvon Martin and the killing of a Marbury are really. It's kind of Irie. Could you bring us up to up to speed on on the facts of the case as as we talk right? Now I'll tell you have ever similar those fat X. Between tricky behind and Ahmad Aubrey navigate tragically Ahmad. Aubrey was changed by a murderous duo of FOB. Said to a Gregory and Travis met Michaels and another man then William Brian who has yet to be arrested ads on this day. He is alleged to beat the individuals driving other a ambushed Ahmad and was taken the video recording of this execution ago. By saying a I have a teacher Johnson and Jive was on and he was a person who with are routinely. He liked to stay in shape as many people. A heat with said show as for whatever reasons we believe. We know why they did it but they suspected him of a burglary and a jumped into their pickup truck shotgun. Jonathan and a three fifty seven magnum and they chased him that community into they caught up with him and then they execute it him like a modern day mentioned. And we see on that. Video is so tragic Washing see that video. You can't see and that's what happens. We watched the execution of his young on all black man killed. We believe because he was racially profile. And the police show up and they take the words of the killer's apparently because the killers are allowed to go home and sleep in their bed. Bites while on. Albury is taken to the more you know There are so many things here In the The facts of the case that you just spelled out and I just want it there. Is the police report as it was filed in the moments after after the shooting after the killing where it says the witnesses said that arbitrary looked like a suspect who had been Breaking into that particular house and that They saw him quote unquote hauling ass down the street and when you look at the video I WanNa talk about how we got this video to begin with but when you look at the video. He's not hauling. Ass Johnson. He's doing what most people in America he is. Simply interest is and you know you put in contact. They come up with some a believable reasons. The killers down. It's you'd think about a walking while driving while black Both in general it is apartment literal while blatch Trae Bob more walking home while blatch may is submitted things Attia Jefferson sitting in her house living while black and now we come to Amman Albury and he's just Jonathan Wa black. They suspected him for that. All right let's talk about the McMichael's Chavis Michael Is the person who had the shotgun And fired the shots. That killed Ahmed Arbitrary and George. Mcmichael is the father who is standing in the back of the pickup truck with a three fifty seven magnum. A talk about why Gregory McMichael in particular is problematic in this case. Certainly we believe that the police did not arrest these murderous fob and said do also the cost Gregory met. Michael was a former police officer and had a thirty year. Employment will as a detected as a DA with the local district attorney. Glenn cowards so we believe they did not want to arrest their friends their colleagues and so that is what reason. We suspect Jonathan that they didn't arrest him. The other reason is even more heinous. We believe because Aubrey was a young for American that the police simply took the word of his white careless that he was up to no good that he was committing a burglary without doing any of appropriate investigation. Apparently because you know if he was A. Where's the burglar's mask? Where's the Burgers toes whereas the burger bags you know whereas the incident allegations of burglaries in this neighborhood? In the past says they suspended he had committed burglaries before. Or is it simply? They know that he wasn't a burger but it didn't matter because they had made a decision that they were not going to rest their France. Who happened to me? The killing this young black man

Rebecca Solnit: Recollections of My Nonexistence

"Of my nonexistence. It's a profound book. It moved me deeply and let me say furthermore that this is the first time we're doing a show under these corona virus situations. I'm in my home. Rebecca's in her home and we're going to talk to one another without being able to see one another a real I for bookworm. Hi Rebecca Hello Michael. What do you mean by my nonexistence? I had the title before I wrote the Book and the book in some ways a reflection on it. It's most of all about all the forms of violence against women. The literal violence that leaves some women. Did some woman silent. Some woman pushed out of full participation in different social arenas but I also wrote about other social groups game in native people etc who face other kinds of erasure and I also wrote about reading as a positive form of non existence where you withdraw from your own life and your own physical being to enter another world and kind of float disembodied in somebody else's imaginings in somebody else's language. Wow let me say that as I was reading the book although I regard myself as I hope sensitive gay man I was made aware of how frightening it is used say at a certain point partially ironically that in your childhood your hobby was not getting raped. To what extent is that true. I-in it's completely true and I was really writing about my adolescence and early adulthood. We've had a really valuable and significant conversation. Last several years thanks to black lives matter and the response to the killing of Trayvon Martin about black parents giving talk to their sons about the dangers. They faced because of their race and gender. Most girls get different forms of the talk. Telling them often in roundabout evasive ways that they can't wear this. They can't do that. They can't aspire to this. They can't move freely. They can't go out at this hour. They shouldn't go to the party. They shouldn't have a drink and that it's entirely on them to prevent men from harming them and that society has no interest in taking responsibility for that but Democrat violence against women. So as young woman I had to constantly think about safety and strategy as I move through the world and every situation walking out in the world public transit meetings classes social situations parties Cetera and it was constant and it took a toll. I remember when I was first in college. This is around. Nineteen seventy the first feminist movements. Were starting in it in phone stickers. That said this exploits women but it wasn't yet clear that we were in a culture that exploits women altogether and that when I started to join gay men's liberation groups. We discovered how much we had grown up being teased being heard being disregarded in the language of the Normative Patriarchal Heterosexual Culture held one. Live in such a culture. You know I think if you add up those who are not male those who are not white. Those are not straight those who are not conventionally able bodied et CETERA. You end up with the majority of facing these forms of non existence. I think that you know it is a burden that people shouldn't have to carry That a lot of kinds of people carry these burdens and I wrote this book partly to try and home in on some of the nuances and complexities around gender. That I didn't feel we're talking about enough but I also wrote this book very much as a first person account of my formative years in San Francisco and gay men were a joy and support and inspiration in those years You know I lived about a neighborhood away. You know a fifteen minute walk from the Castro to see these men who had said we're going to refuse our assignment. We're going to refuse our role because we've decided it's worth paying the price rather than the price of avoiding who. We are and conforming. But I also WanNa talk about another form of non existence that really had an impact. And I think has an impact on young queer people even now on people of color the non-existence of being given reading material stories histories in which people like you don't matter don't exist aren't the protagonists. I grew up reading. Very male centered white centred literary Canon and I should say Christian centered and I feel like there was a non existence that to imagine myself as the protagonist of the great stories. I had to D- imagine myself as a woman and it always felt like I was wavering. Between who I was in my bodily identity and who I was if I wanted to be like Odysseus Sir Lord Jim more so many of the adventurous people in the books that I love when I was growing up the used to as a regular thing on once book reports ask. Who Do you identify with in this book? And since there were no queer characters and no Jewish characters except extremely negative. One says in the case of the sun also rises. I mean hemingway was particular corporate for giving us no one that we could know who would be like us. We would want to grow up into and my parents intern. They were the children of immigrants or immigrants themselves and they were given Ivanhoe to read when they got to school and suddenly they were saying words like pretty young maiden where did that come from. They weren't learning American English in their English classes. That will earning Sir Walter Scott so when I was reading your book. Rebecca this idea of non existence and the ways in which it's pressed upon us move me so deeply that I'll tell you the truth I was breaking into tears every ten or fifteen pages. Wow thank you I will say if I'm not mistaken. Ivanhoe has a beautiful Jewish named Rebecca in it but it is a very anachronistic archaic book. Rebecca Soni is an explorer of the American West and when she became involved with her younger brother in anti-nuclear demonstrations. She was there at the test sites in Nevada. Exploring what it was lied to beyond Shoshoni lands. Yes yes and actually that was such a formative place for me. I like to say the Nevada test site taught me to write because the place was so extraordinarily it demanded. I learned to integrate the different modes. In which is writing journalism criticism and kind of lyrical personal essays but also was a place in which the protagonists were Western. Schone elders Mormon down winters atomic survivors from Japan Lesbian Pagans and anarchists and just really remarkable coming together of a lot of people who already weren't part of the central narrative to exert real power make real alliances about the future of the world against the dominant narrative being told by Cold War America and then nuclear physicists and politicians who were mostly white men and it was an extraordinary movement with many

"I have no doubt they're going to bring her out to the two thousand twenty convention to try to inflame with her narrative. She's still saying today. People hate us so much because of your color of your skin they want to shoot. You shoot says that even though this case had nothing to do with that are so you know. We mentioned that the media you've talked to some people in the press release afraid to touch this so such a hot divisive issue. They're afraid you know for their careers. But I'm sure you're getting emails or some people are contacting you regular people who have seen this and I know I'm sure so you've got some hate mail but are people saying. Hey you know what. Thank you for opening my eyes because I actually believe the false narrative and I watched this film and now my mind and has been changed. Are you getting you well. First of all if you go to the livestream link from the website the Trayvon hoax dot com. Lots of comments. There you can also see on Amazon. I'm you know over one hundred comments on and reviews Just regular folks that see it and those mirror the type of emails. I get where people say. I kind of knew something was wrong. With this case I didn't know what it was but I did end up believing the main part of it and now I realize it was all a lie and thanking me. I've gotten very little hater angry. Mail the only couple of angry things are from white liberals. I don't like it. They don't like it very much that the story story. They've been pushing to black America that they better vote for Democrats because of all these hate. They don't like it when that story is the bit. And it's very few complaints if there's any bad reviews they're not even from people who saw the film because you can't give that film battery view if you've actually seen it so I'm sure there are people who are I'm just going there and are just saying oh it's terrible it's a bunch of nonsense because they're biased and they weren't even then it's very little and I can tell you just like you said you saw the film twice i. I have never heard from anybody that didn't watch it at least twice because it was so much information. It's actually very entertaining. Even though it's such a serious up yeah you don't WanNa Miss Anything but you know that brings up the point. I want to ask you about the you. Were going to screen this around in Florida somewhere and you had the theater basically had so much political local pressure they. They wouldn't even let you show it. They canceled your contract right. We had a contract with coral gables. Art Cinema signed rental agreement. Totally normal normal I had. I've done this one hundred times and I was at the National Press Club of all places just two months prior very similar. You simply rent the room. They have no responsibility. They don't sell tickets. It was is a private event for press. Only they have nothing to do with it and it's very very common. That's what they do all the time. Most theaters do that and I went to Florida. GOT THE PRESS US release out. I had responses from CNN Fox News Channel NBC. They'RE ALL COMING MIAMI HERALD ORLANDO SENTINEL EVERYBODY'S COMING RSVP. And I'm just it driving over to the theater. I've been in Florida for a couple of days with my blu ray disc. They said we'll blend your boulay. We'll just WANNA test it on the system. Is it okay. So this is less than twenty four hours and before the event they call me they say we cancelled. I said why he said while the city of Coral Gables mayors calling the city council and the city lawyer is here in the lobby lobby of the theater and they want us to cancel. I said why why well they don't like the name of the movie or something I said. Well you can't do that. I have a contract contract. I'll call you right back. She called me back and wouldn't even talk to me anymore. She said well. You can send me an email so subsequently I had to cancel. That event cost a lot of money. And I'm probably going to sue them for breach of contract. Censorship violation of First Amendment Rights. This is a typical thing where they didn't see the movie they didn't ask for. They even admitted. There's no requirement to screen or approved content. Y- you know they. That's what happened there. Look I'm sure they'll settle for some amount Alpaca. I can see from their perspective. They were probably afraid that they were GonNa get protests and people were going to boycott and people were going to vandalize. The I don't know you can't you. You can't be fear of fear of the mob means we don't have free speech. I showed at the National Press Club. But this is this is a private company. That didn't WANNA take that risk risk but that shows you how powerful this film is because if your film was a bunch of BS sure put it out there so people could show how it's nonsense nonsense but the fact that you can't refute anything in this film that's why it's so scary. That's why people don't want it aired. But they shouldn't you can't censor censor movies that you haven't even seen and you haven't you don't have any requirement in your contract for breach of contract. It's not really because it's not government government. This is a private company that doesn't want to take the risk to their reputation. But if they should've asked you that you did what you are required to do. And they protect themselves yourselves. They breached the contract. They should be required to cover your damages. I weigh in that. But it's thank. Fortunately we could see this. This thing is on on the Internet you can get you actually can get the DVD or BLU ray or is it all just download. Yeah well you can livestream from the link on the TRAYVON HOAX DOT COM You can also get the DVD or on Amazon you can get the book the book or the DVD as well. You have a book. And he book Doc Book and E-p-o-c-h. I mean I think if you watch the movie or vice versa. You're going to get the book by Versa because the movie so visual and interesting and fun and then the book okay. There's a lot more background in depth and additional things that you couldn't fit in the film so I think you should. You should read and and watch the movie as well. Yeah and you know the stories not over yet because we have to see what happens with this lawsuit. We have to see if the media will gradually open their eyes or somebody will have courage with a major network or somebody will actually report on. What's really relevant here? Not The fact that there's a lawsuit but that there was a fraud perpetrated that there was was a fake witness that it was that it was an attempt to frame an innocent man that the media ran with a phony narrative despite all the evidence overwhelming all Ming witness and factual evidence at the narrowly was wrong. And now even after the fact when it's confirmed that the witness wasn't even real and they're still clinging to this is false narratives so it's GonNa be interesting to see the Pandora's Box that you've opened up with this well. I was on the today. Show when I was in Florida believe leave it or not Kerry Sanders interviewed me for a full hour a full hour and I was saying well. How much of this is going to make it onto the today show? He said Oh a couple of minutes I said okay okay so for an hour. He kept asking me provocative questions like eight times he said. Is this just a conspiracy like that. And then I I would explain why it's not while it actually is a conspiracy but it's not a conspiracy theory. There was more than one person that was involved in this conspiracy. I said but it's proven so eight times. He tried to kind of find something to make fun of me in some way and in the end only twelve seconds of the full hour interview got onto the today's Today's show and I actually answered his question is why didn't you. Why didn't you ask Diamond Eugene when you saw her in the movie About this and I said I was in the middle of the investigation. You don't tell the person you're investigating. Hey you and so. It was a perfect undercover recover operation. Because she wasn't defensive for guard was down because the real diamond Eugene. She's a bright girl. I mean she's smart. She's not like Rachel Shantelle Intel. She's got a lot on the ball she's got and so she would have. She wouldn't have got anywhere near you and it was funny. She was a little suspicious. You know when she sees writing those names down. I was laughing laughing about the names that you came up with. And she's but she's she didn't piece that together because you did such a good job of pretending to be her customer. Well I was the customer. I bought a lot of her fashion reasons. Loathing it was a good deal I would recommend her close to girls aware that kind of clothing But yeah it was was very nerve wracking. I mean I had a camera set up right there in plain sight and she kind of looked at it and she must have just thought well that I don't know what she thought But it was nerve wracking. I was trying to get her to to sign names on these Christmas cards that coincided with the same words in the letter that she gave to Trayvon's mother so you had like the man. Dan was getting closer. So I made up a name Teresa closer men so I thought these are really funky. She doesn't realize what's up. Yeah and so. By the way they took an hour of footage for the today show and they this is like I don't know how long we've been talking. If feels like an hour all of it is going to be online. We're not going to any any of this down. So you're going to get a full airing so there's anything that any questions that I kind of forgot to ask you and there's anything that's on your mind that you want to get Out there why don't you just finish up by just saying that we look. I think it's the most important film of the year of not the decade of the most raced based trial since OJ. That really changed. The country turns out it was a hoax. It was a total fraud Black lives matter. Should probably think about hanging it up. Colin Kaepernick can go back and play for the forty niners now all this race based nonsense that divided us for no reason. You look at this film and you realize it was just a lot of BS S. and we need to get back to who we are which is a brotherhood. Americans are brothers black and white we live under a nation of liberty and justice for all. And there's no need to have this race based narrative in our faces from the left or the media and this movie just exposes it and by the way Trayvon Martin I get to know him the the last eight months of his life and I probably got to know more than his friends and family and I show that he wasn't a thug. He was not a rocket scientist either that they made him out to be He was an average case that went into a downhill spiral. And you can learn about them the film so if you go to the Trayvon hoax dot com start with a trailer livestream and share it as much as possible because I think the story can help heal what went wrong. And this is the real story about a young kid who probably had a promising future. He had some problems and he did spiraled down and where his parents where was his father in all this. And how did those those that institution that our school and fail him because he put himself in circumstances that led to his death. It's unfortunate that he died even if veep attack George and he's getting into fights. Look a lot of young kids do stupid things when they're sixteen seventeen years old sleep but the fact that he's dead. It's not Zimmerman's fault that I like. Yeah let me come look at. It was a tragedy. It's a big country. That's three hundred twenty million people. There are tragic circumstances. That kinda come together and things happen Some people do stupid things and making terrible mistakes. Some people are on drugs and do do things they shouldn't have done and unfortunately sometimes at least someone's death but for those individual incidences to then be exploited by the media. The left to make a political narrative in a political agenda is wrong and This case different from some other ones where individuals acted it's stupidly or mistakenly and someone was was killed and that's tragedy not just death of seventeen year old but the death of freedom and justice and and the way people are exploiting a tragedy like that to create an even bigger tragedy. Ajeti were even more. People probably died as a result of the race baiting. And all everything that's happened in the aftermath of this and you know I'm sure sure that the the academy you're not gonNA nominate you for an Academy Award for best documentary. Although they should nominate it'd be point out. I am up for a Pulitzer Prize as I paid seventy five dollars and I entered the book the book to the Polish Surprise Committee for two thousand Nineteen at Columbia University. So if they're watching please take a serious look. Look at the book because I believe I am an official entrant not a nominee. But I'm an entrance for the Pulitzer Prize for the book. I would say given that. This is a seminal event and Nikon. ICK thing that happened in in our history for you to be able to definitively prove that the entire thing was a fraud and not just a lot of people thought it didn't make makes sense right. Oh this how can that be..

"trayvon martin" Discussed on The Peter Schiff Show Podcast

"And you'll see all the coverage There's actually a couple of brilliant professors. These African American professors one out of Colombian being one out of Brown University. Glenn Lurie and John mcwhorter. They read the book and saw the movie. And they did a very insightful. I happen to watch their part one and partout in their entirety. And Yeah. I very much enjoyed watching it because you can tell because these are these are Liberal Democrats if these guys you know admit that they were fully on board with the false narrative because they just wanted to believe it like everybody else but their minds. I mean their rational thought fought is just now contradicting with that. Because it won't let them accept it anymore and you can see it pains them to have to admit this because they understand the implications and because you have these people now that have been paraded around the parents and there. They basically committed a crime and the lawyer. I mean. This is a a huge crime when you basically knowingly put forward a fake witness who is not only committing perjury because you coach them but they're canoed posture. They're not even personally claim to be and if Trayvon's parents and his lawyers if they're willing to lie about something like this if they're are willing to commit a crime that they should actually be jailed for they should be charged and convicted. They shouldn't be going to jail for what they tried to do. And framing innocent may on. I mean you know what if what if they actually convicted George Zimmerman although he's been convicted in the court of public opinion and his wife have been ruined by and so they understand the implications of this and so it's tearing them up inside and they're being honest but I think the media understands it. Which is why they WANNA clamp down? They don't even want to admit. Oh you know what we made a mistake. We rushed to judgment. We believe a bunch of liars. who had their own agenda? They made a bunch of money off this. The lawyer made career and a fortune to parents at a lawsuit and they're all politically motivated and they don't want to go back and say hey wait a minute we. This was a rush to judgment. They don't even want to reflect reflect on that so they're burying this story well but for them it's far beyond that because don't forget Less than a year later their next this the slogan Iran with was skittles and iced tea. So Ben crump then went with Al Sharpton to Burgas in Missouri to push the next Trayvon hoax. Call it hands up. Don't shoot. That's another one. The media pushed pushed so they've been pushing this stuff on us for the last six years. It really changed the country. Jussie smollet thing that never happened. They just they just repeated it without question Russian when I was in. DC At the National Press Club promoting Releasing the movie there. They were putting out a story. That a black girl in Virginia Virginia said some white kids cut off her dreadlocks. They were reporting that. No questions asked the next day. They said Mike Pence's wife works at the school school. They were so excited the third day they said oops. The mother said it was a hoax. She lied she cut off her own dreadlock so the media malfeasance the medium instead of just run with this stuff And I think I think a lot of people are realizing that if you just accept the media narrative you're gonNA get fooled and if al Sharpton is in on it or Ben crump is in on it. You really need to ask some questions but at least cutting off a young girls dreadlocks. I I can see that happening. That's possible but I mean the Jussie smollet. That was crazy. I mean the minute I heard that I. There's no way this actually happened and immediate is already not willing to accept it because Jussie is black and he's gays automatically if you're a victim and he's a double victim. Well you must be believed no matter. How preposterous Chris? It is that you're asking people to believe and this should should open up people's eyes I mean. Did you get on the phone with some of these reporters and and actually discuss your findings to get their reaction or did not even get that far. Well he did. I mean I talked to a lot of them. Many of them were quite honest. They said straight up they said look. This is incredible. What you uncovered? But I'm afraid to be the first one to push out there. If I'm the first one looking into this I'm going to get attacked on social media. They're gonNA call for me to be fired. Only once it's out in the media then I'll cover it and most of them actually have all of them. Were afraid they don't WanNA SCOOP US go. They want to be a follow on. They'll follow the mob but they don't WanNa be a target of any information that contradicts the main narrative that they push. Yeah that is the initial pressure. Because I remember you know I felt that a little bit but I'm not a very politically correct guy. But what happens is if you don't immediately support whatever's being alleged by these victims will then you're a racist yourself right you're not believing them and that just shows how racist you are and then because we all want to show that we're not racist which most most of us are not but in order to show that then we just have to believe them and it's our willingness to believe what's obviously alive that's supposedly proves that we're not racist. I think it's the other way around now. I think if you're willing to give people if they're black or whatever their their minority status is if you're willing to lower the bar and just give them a pass and say look that's okay. Say If what they're saying is ally just going to believe it anyway. That's what's racist. You got to treat everybody the same. You have to have a healthy degree of skepticism. When somebody says something that doesn't make any sense? I have found from my interactions with people that have seen the film. It supports what I believe is that no one has suffered more from this trayvon hoax as they call it than the Black Youth of America and the Trayvon Oaks is two things. It's both the substitution of a legitimate phone witness which was Brittany Diamond Eugene. She went with Dr Save on by her Middle Name. Diamond Eugene for a false fake witness Rachel Jen Tell to get Zimmerman arrested and and try to get convicted. The trayvon hoax is also the name. I give to that narrative that the media plays on Black Americans every day that America is racist and you better seek shelter on the left to protect yourself from all this hatred and this is the story they push and I can tell you that beginning at the The National Press Club we had students from Howard University starkly Black College College and my security guard with these big tough guys and they all came up to me afterwards and said things like thank you. They wanted my autograph that wanted copies. They said thank you. Thank thank you. We knew something was wrong with this. I had a girl black girl emailed me and said I have a black sun and I was afraid for him to grow up in America and now I realize we got played eight. We got played. She said thank you thank you. So it's the black kids. They knew all along. Rachel wasn't the girlfriend. You don't have to tell them and you had any kind of they suffered for from this story. Because I want to point out that that whole Ferguson effect thing. We're police no longer do proactive policing they just drive by when they see crimes We've had the thirty three percent rise in homicides in urban America so it's been a crime disaster for black neighborhoods all because of this this ridiculous story. They put forth based on this case that America somehow became racist. I grew up in Tennessee in the seventies and eighties. I never heard the N.. Word in my life a black and white kids. We're all friends altogether If there were black kids were friends of mine because I like their character if there are white kids that weren't friends. It's because we didn't get along whoever I heard of this nonsense. And they want to tell us forty years later. America became racist and that's the narrative that they use to drive their political agenda. I think to the fact acted. Obviously you have a bias just like all the people that were pushing the false narrative have a biased. People can't see behind because he's a conservative or libertarian. Then obviously obviously this is all a bunch of nonsense. He's trying to push his narrative. But I think you hit the nail on the head with the election of Barack Obama. I think that scared the left in the race baiters because this was a sign that America was less racist than hey white people voted for a black man for president that shows that we're not as racist assist as everybody wants to claim so I think they needed something to divide us again. They needed something to convince people that even though we voted for a black man for present. We're actually racist. So I think this Trayvon Martin incident. I mean this was perfect and the only thing. That wasn't perfect that the guy that killed them was Hispanic so they had redefine him as a white Hispanic initially. Nobody saw photographs of him. So it was Zimmerman George Zimmerman German name. He's obviously a white guy and so I just assumed he was was white Arina jumping around four five seventy six. I mean first of all. I don't think I'm biased in any way This is a very straightforward investigation. No no literally you have. I'm not politically Abihu. This has nothing to do with politics. Economics for laws film. This film this film at my work and I don't think I'm biased in any way this film is investigation. Investigation of the facts of the case of the conclusions are actually of that. We need unity that we need healing that Americans are all brothers. This case is divided us for no reason black and white. We're all brothers under a constitution under a nation of liberty and that people divided us for no reason so my message is not controversial. It's a brotherhood. I grew up in Tennessee. All brothers black and white had Asian friends anything that wants to divide US along our most superficial qualities which skin tone is ridiculous and but this is the playbook of socialism because They they socialist policies. Don't work everything was getting worse in Black America. Unemployment fifty sixty seventy percent and they used the the tools of state of I talk about this more in the book that the Department of Justice actually sent down representatives claiming they were going to investigate when the police said there was no probable cause for arrest and they actually organized protests. The Department of Justice came down and organize protests against Zimmerman for his arrest. US With no evidence and no probable cause at that same time. I'll remind you the Obama Administration was using the irs to break up the conservative tea party movement that had SHELLAC lack them in the two thousand ten elections so socialists use the tools of state and division as we saw last week the report they were using the f. b. i. d. the OJ to maintain a hold on power because their policies don't work and when you look back at this case you can see how Obama was using thing the tools of state to maintain power and in my prior film called There's no place like Utopia. I actually interviewed a former KGB agent defector named Constantine PREPA Jansky and he said the communist always viewed black Americans as the raw material for revolution. Meaning they could just use them for their goal and I think with the revelations in this case black Americans are really realizing they've got played by these white liberals with their agendas to bring them into a socialist agenda that doesn't have anything to do with their interests. Definitely something if you look at the black lives matter. Website go to their goals transgenderism globalism things that have have nothing to do with helping black Americans. It's all the white liberal socialist agenda that they use trayvon Martin and they use them to try to bring black voters isn't there and they do the same thing with environmentalism. It's really a cover for socialism they're trying to get these socialists policies in through various doors. But you know when I said biased asked. I didn't mean that you were biased. In your filmmaking was very objective you clearly were just looking to find the truth and reporters can report the news even if they have a political perspective active. They could still be unbiased in what they're doing. My point is that since you are a conservative or libertarian and you have a philosophy then then what the critics are saying is there see he must be biased because they can attack. What you've done because it's bulletproof so they have to attack you right it's Ad Hominem attacks on you because they can deal with your research or your conclusions so all they can do is say well the Messenger is bad. Forget about the message endure scientist. I understand it's what I've experienced with coming out with this film. Certainly Tells US The story once. Again of how illegitimate the media is is in how they will refuse to do journalism and only want to promote an agenda. Yeah now have have you heard from any of the other principals that were in the film particularly okay. Have you spoken to diamond at all. Things come out and she knows that you're not just a customer buying dresses lamb her best customer or Well no because I tried to give away the close to goodwill and they wouldn't take they said they're like too provocative But no I haven't tried to contact any of the principles of because for example. Even when I met diamond I wanted to get her on. Film wanted to talk to or get handwriting. Samples was the main goal and and I hadn't really gotten through all her social media and her friends social media yet. So it wasn't the kind of Gotcha journalism where I say. Look at this. You know what are you doing in Trayvon. Everyone cellphone records. I DIDN'T WANNA. I didn't think she would admit to it either. So No there's been no attempt to go and she hasn't hasn't reached out to you at all. No no not at all and look. Obviously she was involved in something she was only sixteen. She's involved in something that has some criminal element to it so the fact that there was a fake witness who pretended to be her so I doubt she's going to be calling me or following up on any clothing sale and I don't blame her. I mean yes. She was sixteen. She was a minor. She was under incredible pressure from everybody to lie and to her credit..

"Happen several minutes will be Joe double talking about the Trayvon Martin hotel gave rise to what's happening today and what's happening to police departments when Hillary Clinton pays a foreign agent to dig up dirt on drop it's called opposition research one trouble legibly allegedly does a similar thing on Biden it's called a constitutional crisis why does this policies are working can't deal with his policy is working and the democratic policies that have failed everywhere they've been dried thanks wasn't Forbes's some other magazine put out the worst ten cities in America to live all controlled by the Democrats the state's losing population California Eleanor New Jersey state in New York controlled by the Democrats the policies of failed rockers saying Obama said that fatherless homes is the major scourge in the black community citing statistics eight times more likely to commit crime ten times more likely not to graduate from high school but then he had to not SO lucid moment when after the shootings in Dallas of police officers he told a large group quote that the black parents are right to fear their child could be killed by a police officer whenever he walks out the door who's on our own so the light continues to be told despite the fact there is no epidemic of racist police shootings as determined by the Washington post the National Academy of service sciences and Michigan State University this is a test things are different in the fax but why report the facts and the failure democratic policies that have destroyed inner cities when you can blame trump one trump pointed out that Baltimore is a hell hole because of the policies of Democrats control the city for nine years ninety years especially larger Cummings the media attack trump for criticizing a black leader who had failed and is essential duty to make Baltimore be a better city one it clearly isn't instead of saying wait a minute is what trump saying correct is there a lack of educational opportunity in Baltimore is there a lot of crime in Baltimore is there no job creation Baltimore departure Baltimore look like bank bombed out pay route of course it does in fact the mayor of Baltimore in a walking tour use the same language the trump use but she's black and she was descriptive troubles descriptive buddies called a racist in Charlottesville one trump said there's good people on both sides referring to those who want the monuments down and those who want the monuments up the media had a juxtaposition his words to communicate a racist thought that he didn't have the ball away those monuments in the south Earl for Democrats the Democrats are the confederacy the Democrats complex plan the Democrats putting Planned Parenthood in the black community the Democrats lynching the Democrats marching in Washington under the tutelage of Woodrow Wilson the Ku Klux Klan the Democrats Franklin Delano Roosevelt separated the races in the military the Democrats make sure that a poorly educated black kid in major urban areas can't receiver certificate to go to a good private school Democrats prohibit that the democratic policies continue to fail the black family as they've done for the last hundred fifty years they blame wrong all drums fault there is an epidemic of racist police shootings according to black lives matter incentive incentivized by Obama the foreman make a lot of money how do you invite that group to the White House to celebrate their achievements when the rhetoric encouraged a black nationalist to kill five Dallas police officers Dallas police officers inspired assassin in July twenty sixteen that's one truck that that's one oh bombers said black parents were right to fear their child could be killed by a police officer then then Joe Biden said quoting his criminal justice plan what will no longer allow black moms and dads the fear their kids walking the streets of America killed by cops and he and Obama were in charge of the country for eight years what did they do to fix the problem well there is not a problem of police shootings there is a problem of black on black crime calls by democratic policies not race so you know I'm looking at the drudge report tonight it says second whistle blower comes forward well represented by democratic activists attorney closely connected to John Podesta George Stephanopoulos who broke the story and and and others on the left who want to bring down the president that's not reported because it doesn't fit the narrative and how can there be a whistle blower on a telephone call when trump is released the entire transcript can you tell me that how's that a bombshell revelation putting at risk the trump agenda see that they can't go against trump's policies that have succeeded they can't assume that the democratic policies have worked like in Detroit Cleveland the homeless crisis in Los Angeles you can't do any of that so let's smear the guy and make it look as if every report that we do is a bomb shell demanding his his impeachment and then McConnell Mitch McConnell said a couple days going mobile songs on the president of the Senate he's not going to be removed from office so the Democrats concerned about voter suppression want to make sure that you know the right to vote for trump and twenty twenty because they can't run against his policies they want to run against him everything is failed so far is this.
