"vietnam veteran" Discussed on The Thinking Atheist
"I can already hear some people wondering out loud why they hail is seth talking to Vietnam veteran about the Vietnam War. Now. I've seen platoon. Watched the documentaries we've read the books we know our history why rehash it now but I submit to you that the conversation you're about to hear has never been more relevant than it is right now because it has a lot to do with patriotism and protest. John Musk. Grave paid a terrible price. I saw his story in the Ken. Burns Lynn Novick documentary. It's still on Netflix the Vietnam War it's like ten chapters ten parts. It's so good I watched it twice and John Musk gray was featured in the documentary and of all the compelling stories I saw it was John that left off the screen at me. It was so compelling I reached out to him via his website like look you don't know me from Adam. But would you ever consider being on the show and talking to me? And he was kind enough to respond and say, sure let's chat. So we're GONNA do that. Now John's not an atheist I don't think. So he comes from A. Protestant background. So if you hear any references to his faith or religion or whatever that's totally cool I mean that's not why John and I are talking today don't get hung up on any of that. The larger story is one about fighting injustice and because when something unjust and immoral is happening immoral good people have to stand up and protest against it. I. Mean Talk about relevant right we see a lot of that in the headlines Right now. Now, the challenge that we've got is that there are whole generations probably a couple of generations who know that we fought in Vietnam who know that we got our asses kicked in Vietnam? But they don't really understand why we were there. Why was the United States traveling ten thousand miles to fight in the jungles of Vietnam something to do with communism? I. Think. Well I'm GonNa give you a resource in just a second for those who wanna, go deeper. But if I to sum it up, it went something like this. The United States, the pinnacle of freedom. One Nation under God. In immoral fight against godless communism and we linked communism to evil and there was this fear that this spreading communism in Southeast Asia would eventually in fact, the rest of the world including us is called the domino theory might have Vietnam falls to communism then Holy Shit all the other dominoes are GonNa fall and Communism is that our doorstep tomorrow and so you got the country Vietnam divided into north and south that communist North with. Ho, Chee Men, the south anticommunist we decided to support the south we start by sending them weapons, training their soldiers. But of course, it's not long before we are shipping soldiers, our soldiers en masse to die by the tens of thousands in the jungles of Vietnam, the United States acted pretty much on its own because we couldn't get the support of our allies. They thought it was shitty idea. They thought we had no business being there. And after how many years at the end of the day we pull out of Vietnam. Almost nothing had been accomplished fifty-five thousand plus Americans had been killed substantially more north and South Vietnamese were dead and the Vietnam War became one of the darkest chapters of the twenty th century. There's actually a whole lecture about the Vietnam War. It gets into this so much better than I do it's at the great courses plus it is part of series called a history of the united. States. I mean it's a deep dive into the forces that kind of forged this country but there's a specific chapter on Vietnam that is really compelling. You know it gets into French occupation and the pitching of the non-communist Southern Forces Against Ho Chi Minh. Then America's intervention. Some would say invasion the Vietnam it's part of the. Series..
Interview With Barbara Kopple
"I, know I'm not alone this. I'm on record as naming Harlan, county USA, one of the best documentaries ever. Made I taught it and American dream once in a class on cinema verite. So Barbara Cop bullets genuinely thrilled to have you on film spotting. Thanks for coming on That's nice to hear. Thank you very much. Of course I was four when the events of desert one played out. So I guess I'll use that as my excuse but I, have to confess I really had no idea. Story was going to unfold when I started watching and the story I did get surprised me. So was that partly what drew you to this story that it's a mission that a lot of Americans may not be aware of or have forgotten about chosen to forget about Exactly, the history channel is GonNa do hundred feature found based on history that people really wouldn't know that much about And so does it one was one of them they ended up on these doing for five and so. We're rocky that we got to do this. and. I just love death because I just felt that desert one really is a story that needed to be if you know for me. Story of heroism, a reminder of the horrors of war and it also. It's so rennaissance today because it looks the roots of the conflict between the US and the Iranian government. And plus I just really wanted to do. Because the guys are so incredible, their their diet who'd never really got do and they went because they wanted to rescue fifty two hostages who had been you know taken by the Iranian students. So not knowing the story, I'll also confess I, assumed it was going to be a story of American triumph and in some ways it is you mentioned it is a tale of heroism. It's definitely a tale of great courage but it is a failed mission and the failed missions aren't the ones history typically remembers or wants to revisit. It sounds like that was also an angle that appealed to you. Yeah. from people have this motto had the guts to try. And From this. Ham. A lot of really incredible things like it's organization called the Special Operations, Warrior Foundation and also was really the first time that special forces wherever put together you know marine and navy and everybody in now special forces are together you know on different missions that they go and so it was the start of that. Thinking about desert one in relation to some of the other documentaries you've made the to mention. For example, you give a voice there to people who are often voiceless overlooked. I'm thinking of course of the of the miners and the meatpackers, and it's not the soldiers whose missions are unsuccessful as we touched on whose stories are typically told, but that's what you've done and so I'm curious if that was a conscious choice on your part or are you just naturally drawn to telling those kinds of stories and giving voice to those people? Yeah. That's what I love doing more than anything is. Really getting to know people that you narrowly. No are you have stereotypical feelings about and let them tell their story and let them think D- I've done two other films about the military one was. Found with the collective of people called winter soldier, which was about Vietnam veterans, telling stories about what happened in Vietnam, and then another one in two thousand and fifteen called shelter, which was about homeless veterans and a really wonderful friend of Mine Day of Marist. News did a lot of the singing and Harlan County USA was a homeless that and he was sorted the center of the film as we went to different places where they were homeless and he saying he told stories than it was quite

G. N. right now great
Spike Lee: a new black wave of cinema
"We've spent past two weeks in a collective state of horror and anger over George Floyd's killing at the hands of Minneapolis police, officer Dirk, Shaaban, just one thousand unjustly killed by police. It's hard to look at what happened. Floyd, and not think of Radio Raheem Bill. Nuns character from do the right thing. Or countries fucked up needs to change. No American filmmaker has had the foresight or insight about that need for change quite like spike has. Some directors interpret the past some capture the present spike does both and he sees the future. Spent some time in the past few weeks. Returning to some spikes movies in anticipation of his new film to five bloods, it's a staggering body of work as wide as it as deep as warm and inviting as provocative and laden with traps ever. Spike isn't the totality of the black filmmaking experience and I don't want to suggest that, but for forty years he's told stories about that experience that have been seen more widely and discussed more feverishly than anyone and they still haven't been seen enough. Of the conversations you've been having with loved ones this month about the problems that people are forced to look at more closely police brutality, systemic racism locally sanctioned violence gentrification, tribal loyalty, the failures of government, personal sacrifice versus public good hiring practices, power, art and money spike was ahead of most Americans for decades on these issues, but while the stories he tells are frequently polemical. His movies are quite nuanced. They rarely tell you exactly what to think. Instead foisting contradictions and crises, interviewers, laps and making them decide. He crafts extraordinary dilemma movies inspired by the new Orrin Westerns and social dramas that he studied at Nyu and even though he doesn't force a conclusion is movies are frequently an intelligence test over the years, critics and audiences have repeatedly shown their ass immediately upon exiting a spike movie. For person like me seeing his work at a young age me up, helped me see beyond my keyhole-size view of the world, but it's not like spike wasn't relatable. He was the Avatar of new. York Knicks FANDOM! He was a regular presence on TV and Jordan commercials. He was directing music videos and frequently according controversy in the movie world he consistently challenged fans and detractors to reexamine their beliefs, and he always destabilized our comfort at sixty three. He is still very much a vital filmmaker. Twenty eight teams Black Klansman was among his most honored films and marked his First Competitive Oscar win for best adapted screenplay. Spike is a hall of Famer on this show and his work accounts for some of my favorite movies ever made. This episode is dedicated to those movies and will include conversations with a couple of his key collaborators as well as a part of a conversation that was more than I had on the watchable last summer. About Lee's nineteen eighty-nine masterpiece. Do the right thing. That movie redefines the term remarkable. In it! You can see and hear the pain and conflict. We're talking about right now. Watch it again. If you haven't really later in the show, we'll have a conversation with jazz. Musician and film composer Terence Blanchard a longtime contributor of spikes. They've teamed up on fifteen films including two five bloods, and he is truly one of the great writers of music for movies. I also wanted to share a conversation I had with the film editor Barry Alexander Brown in February. Two Thousand Nineteen, after he received an Oscar nomination for his work on Black Klansman they've been together since spikes first movie. She's gotTa, have it? Like so many great filmmakers spike works with the same crew over and over again, not just Aronson Berry, but production designer when Thomas Costume. Designer Ruth Carter casting director Robby Reed, and that incredible troop you've seen over and over again in his movies Denzel Washington, of course, Johnsboro on Davis Samuel Jackson Roger One of Your Smith Arthur Nas. Kerala Delroy Lindo is Ahah whitlock junior Alleluia Debbie Masar Ruby Dee, the list goes on. Later this week will be back with a review of spikes, the five bloods, which will be available to watch on Netflix on Friday, it's the story of four black Vietnam veterans who return to the jungle for some unsettled business, its reunion of sorts of some of those actors, and for it's a kind of mission statement about missions. Lastly. We'd like to top five on this show. Spike is made more than thirty feature length films, many of which are indisputable classics to cover every style and format under the Sun. Drama Comedy Crime Films Romances Documentary Sports Movies farce satire musical. He's really done at all. I would recommend virtually every movie he's ever made, but before I share my five year a few places, you can watch his movies just in case you're trying to bone up on some of the ones you've missed. Overlook along the way.

Everyone is still wrong about the Covington kids
"Classes over at Covington high school because of death threats because of bomb threats. No, I am not kidding. They've now had to cancel school today, and they had to cancel their basketball game which was scheduled for the next couple of days because of all the violent threats that are being made over a completely falsified video that the media pushed forward so the media over the weekend push for this videos. You'll recall from yesterday show, they push forward a video suggesting that Covington high school students surrounded an elderly native American Vietnam. Veteran and then began berating him yelling at him obstructing him. And all the rest turns out that was all ally. It was not true. The further video shows what happened is that. There were a bunch of black Hebrew Israelites cult members who were yelling, racial, sexual orientation slurs at the students, the students did not respond except by chanting their school chance at which point Nathan Phillips, this elderly native, American gentlemen, he decided to saunter into the middle of the high school students with some of his buddies pounding a drum and getting in the faces of some of the students the students did not react to that. And for this. The students were castigated they're now receiving death threats. There is eating bomb threats. They have been doc st-. I mean, I've spoken to a bunch of the students at this point. These are from my impression. Good solid kids. I see no evidence that they are racist. I see no evidence that they did anything egregious or wrong. And you're seeing commentary from folks on the left suggesting that one kid in particular, Nick Sandman, who's the one who you see in the video standing face to face with the native American guy that he was doing something wrong by smiling. So now a white guy smiling is race. Cest? That's how far we have come. So Martin Luther King day yesterday. People were talking about how a white kid smiling was racist. Because he happened to be wearing a maga- hat. You think maybe we've gone too far in this country in terms of polarizing people by way of race. It's pretty astonishing. We'll President Trump did the right thing yesterday. He tweeted out about Covington Catholic, he was he was watching Tucker Carlson show. Tucker did a great job of covering this issue last night on Fox News. And Trump tweeted out looking like, Nick Sanmen and Covington Catholic students were treated unfairly with early judgments proving out to be false smeared by media, not good but making big comeback new footage shows that media was wrong about teens encounter with native American at Tucker Carlson. That's great. I mean, I had recommended to the White House that President Trump actually tweet at Nic Sandman. Nice hat Nick wanna come to the White House. You remember Barack Obama did that with

"vietnam veteran" Discussed on The Sporting Life with Jeremy Schaap
"The United States naval academy two-time Super Bowl champion, a member of the pro football hall of fame, captain America himself, Roger Staubach, Roger thank you for joining us. Well, good to be with Jeremy win the calender rolls around November eleventh each year where your thoughts. Well, I've I've got I've got a lot of lot of lot of good buddies. That are that we went to naval academy together in the service together. And we just had a reunion at the at at navy here for sixty three team. And of course, we we lost some some some of our teammates, Vietnam, they've some some were pilots. And so I you know, I've really have relationships. I I was in the service for four years going the naval academy. And, but you know, my my love for those that committed a lot longer than me that were in the service a lot longer than retired is is military. It's it's it's time to to show our probation and thank them in so veterans as a big deal. It's you know with with USA. Also, we we've involved the sleuth a service and in this year, we. Got the the honor through through action, which is you know, honoring honoring veterans. And you can draw little V on your hand and take a picture of it and put on social media. That's the way that pick out a veteran to say, hey, I'm I'm gonna so. And so so we got different ways to do that. But the the world is still a wacky world. And our veterans are out there. You know, I'm I'm looking at our kids and grandkids. And and even great grandkids that that that that, you know, it's it's important to have these great veterans. Protecting us. We're speaking with the nineteen sixty three Heisman Trophy winner and more relevant to our conversation right now. Vietnam, veteran Rogers Stabak, and Roger you know, the way we appreciate veterans now in the public support for veterans causes obviously very different from so much of what was experienced by your fellow Vietnam veterans during immediately after the war. How do you reflect upon the way America demonstrates depreciation now for its veterans as as opposed to what it was like forty fifty years ago? Yeah, I don't know what what got into us during that the Vietnam period. I mean, it was a war that was definitely kinda virtual, and, but it was, you know, fifty eight thousand over fifty eight thousand veterans died in Vietnam, and they were going over there because our country asked to do it. And maybe you should get mad at the politicians or those that made decisions about the, but the veterans still should've been been honored in and cared for. And you know, I was I was a support officer. So I was into nagging to lie and logistic supply and supporting them, rain course. So I don't wanna make myself. I wasn't out there getting shot at. But we were we were still in your harm's way. Well, we yeah. So we were we we're taking care of the reins. At that time because I that that they were that the I corps area of South Vietnam, where we were and rains were occupying that area at the time. I was there in sixty six sixty seven and and so all the things that that that they did and one through and some teammates that I lost over there. And then then to come back and not not not being love and care for like like, I think we're doing today and in in a in a in a really good way, it makes a big difference to the feelings of our veterans. So Vietnam was was a difficult time and for veterans in in. Now, I think we're we're understanding that they're they're asked to go out to protect us in our country. And I think people really understand that that the veteran and the politicians are like, you know, to a different part of the the the the program, but the veterans are asked to do what they do. And and. Protect our country. And and and they they they there's no question how how good they feel when people come up to them and say, thanks for your service. So what it's just makes a big difference in Roger. To being at nap bliss at that period in time from eighteen sixty one and nineteen sixty five just as the US was getting involved really in Vietnam in building up its presence in Vietnam before before the largest infusion of of personnel..
