Airbnb cancels and blocks inauguration week reservations

"Says it will cancel all reservations in the Washington D. C area during the week of President elect Joe Biden's inauguration and reimburse host what they would have made. Airbnb expense. This is an attempt to further prevent prevent further attacks at the Capitol one week after pro Trump supporters stormed the capital building, which resulted in five Yes. Joining us now. Chris Lahane, senior vice president for global policy and communications at Airbnb, So, Chris, you know not only are you canceling reservations. You're doing it at hope, Airbnb his expense and reimbursing them what they would have made if these days had happened, so this is a pretty dramatic move on your part. Who did you consult about this? And how did you come to this decision? Yeah, And I think thanks for having us, you know, a million years. I didn't think we'd be having this type of a conversation. You know, really? We've been consulting with local officials, Mayor's office, federal officials, members of Congress. Obviously, yesterday you had the two governors, governor of Maryland governor of Virginia. Also the mayor of Washington, D. C. All make really clear that they just did not want people traveling to Washington, D. C. We have a decision making framework that we call our stakeholder framework. We just really considered all the issues impacting our stakeholders. And one of those stakeholders are the communities that we're in. It just became really clear to us that the right thing to do here was to the block people traveling from to Washington, given all the guidance, given everything that's going on, given, frankly, the interest of our republic We certainly didn't want to make sure that our hosts who are going to be economically impacted are made whole and that is part of our stakeholder framework. But ultimately, this was pretty simple decision to prioritize. The public health and safety of particularly given the guidance that we were being given yesterday from those various leaders. Since then, the president has been impeached for the second time the first president ever to be impeached twice. You are also canceling reservations on hotel tonight. Haven't heard other hotels saying that they're gonna be canceling reservations. Do you think that they should be doing that? Great question. I'm pretty comfortable speaking about our decision making. Obviously, we'll let others make their decisions. Do believe that all of us? I tried thinking of Thomas Jefferson's first inaugural where, To paraphrase he talked about the fact we're all Democrats, for all Republicans mean that we're all Americans, and I do think we're all of the moment right now, where that really should be Our North star and got his start and that context really prioritizing trusted safety. I do think I'm like, you know something that you and I have talked about historically. This concept of stakeholder capitalism on making decisions that consider all those stakeholders and I do think maybe after some time passes, people will look back on this moment. And after I did some good has really come of it. But It's been interesting to see a number of other businesses on business leaders really standing up and making decisions that are prioritizing interest of the country. I do wonder if this will be one of those moments where People actually saw stakeholder capitalism in action and people actually playing action. Two words. We made the decision based on our application of that stakeholder framework and what we thought was in the best interest of the community. Now how much of the Virginia and Maryland suburbs do your cancelations include? And can you give us any idea how much this will cost Airbnb and whether you're you're potentially gonna make some a similar decisions. Another state capitals. Across the country, given the warnings from the FBI, great great questions. Let me try and take them individually. In terms of the geographic parameters. Horoscope. I'm sure you'll appreciate this. Uh, we are not looking to be able to give this specific. So anyone out there who is Looking to try to evade the systems that we have in place that the block calendars and block travel could take advantage of that. We're certain certainly applying this approach to the Greater D C area that metro area but have been pretty careful about not giving the details. Specifics really in an effort to make sure that people can't evade the The systems that we have in place. It's gonna impact, you know, roughly approximately 5500 reservations and in that area, but we also have signals allow us to be able to change his parameters pretty quickly if we feel like we need need to expand. You know, from a financial perspective, really? That never even came into the conversation. We've been removing violent extremists and you Nazis really dating back. Before Charlottesville in 2017. It's something that we've been doing on an UN going basis, and those conversations just never involved. How much is this gonna cost what the financial impact is going to be even in the case like that? Really was. What's the right thing to do? And I know that may sound trite, but it really was. I remember every conversation with Bryan or strike, Francesca. See, you know what it was? It asked. Let's make sure we're doing everything possible on Dever raised at all. You know what? Let's look at the financial impact was just do the right thing. And then as it regards out their capitals 100% right. Obviously, governments have issued warnings and The other day we announced they seven point plan that sort of helped address how we keep these specific types of folks off the platform. We have flexibility, adaptability toe. Move that around. We're certainly in contact with the different states and the different governments on

Sex and the City Is Coming Back

"Sex and the city is coming back. You guys parker cynthia. Nixon and kristin davis confirmed it with this teaser. They're bringing the show back to life on. Hbo maxima. here's a twist for one thing. The show has a new name. It's called and just like that. The other big changes. That kim cottrell will not be back. As samantha. super surprise about that part of it. But you guys here for this look. I think everybody has been waiting for this to happen for a very long time. Where that you like. The series are not whether you like the movies are not you know a character. You still know which character that you are. This show holds a place. And everybody's heart. I don't care who you are man ads. but also what if your character doesn't come back. Like i'm a combination of carrying samantha. So half of me is no longer in this series. And i think you know what i mean like me. That really upsets me. I i found out about this late yesterday was like what's going on. I didn't fully understand what was going on. I'm here for it. But the fact that they're trying to use a different title and try to differentiate from sex in the city as much as possible. I just feel like is the juice worth the squeeze like you have such an iconic franchise you did the show for however many seasons. You have two movies the second movie we let pass because whatever we're super fans and we didn't care as much as we should now to revamp it in like a smaller scale with only three of the women when it's really about the four of them and then also to know that whatever feud has gone on behind the scenes is so bad that somebody will not return sort of just jolts. I don't know the the magic of it all a little bit. Like do people want no samantha. In this show one time samantha. But i i. I love the other girls enough that i told him away without her own. No the problem is the show is called. Sex city remarried broadband. We know nobody's having sex in that city. Okay so give me somebody. I need you to cast somebody. Who's going to be that young sexy siren that's going to actually explore the city as a single woman and have these women go ahead and kind of guide her through now over the years i will say sex in the city has gotten a little bit of pushback because of their lack of diversity this is. Hbo's chance and sexy cities chance to show that they can cast somebody in that role at all. I want is a quarterly simmons or isa raid in that role. We had you know. I love the. I also think it's one of those things. Where if you're not gonna bring samantha back and i know i read a little bit about the show this morning. And it says it's about the women navigating friendships in their fifties. Then i think that you need to also include losing friends. People throughout their life people who have been friends for twenty years. If you're no longer going to have samantha around. I don't wanna hear that samantha's in la or central pay or dating. Some man tell us that samantha went awol. And y'all are not cool anymore. Like i love that. And pretend she's gone and it's all fine also. Don't you think that some are Critic his character is going to be like the one divorce because she's so least likely to be divorced. They've gotta have a good twist. They're already been divorced. she's dead. She converted also watch your language. Watch your language because you keep on saying if you're not gonna have some antibac- if you're not going to invite her in samantha. Was the one kristen her name. I'm i can into the one who said she would never do. Another sex in the city again never wanted to play that character again. It was not her. She wanted to move on. So we can't because a lot of people are pointing fingers at sarah jessica parker a nephew of why shouldn't come back but she said she wasn't going to come. Was it on like kim yet. Her but there was. She couldn't get the last. I think we're done with samantha. They hate each other and the fact that they hate each other to the extent that they hate each other and we still don't really know why is fascinating to me couple. Let's get a couple like major things about the story. What do you think so you think you guys both in kristen's karat. Why can blink charlotte. You think charlottesville. What about big and kerry together or broken up together can carry gonna be together. I don't think it's going to be. I think the new adventures are gonna come with the new woman. I think we're going to get the fashion. I think we're going to get the city. And i also think we're going to get a diverse for the character that we have always need it in this series or something like twenty twenty one like i think it's i think it's just give me comoro. You like let me get my life. Yeah i'm excited about this. I am excited to see what it's gonna be and how they're gonna do it. I'm sure it's going to be good no matter what the way. Let's be honest if kim control really wanted to come back on this show. They would have done it. She worked the last two seasons not liking. Sarah jessica parker joy behar and go back and rosie o'donnell crossing each other at a table for three years. These two can be on together at young to be kuenz. Has no interest was over sad. Can

Relationship to Food

"Debbie first question. We're talking about relationships with food. But what does it mean to have a relationship to food. We aren't asking people to go out and marry a stock of celery or something. Right certainly not respond that way. It might drew. If you don't keep it in water you know. I would actually say that. We have varying relationships plural with food so when we attach a motion to eating certain items when we use food as a tool to punish or reward ourselves instead of when we eat for neuro survival and also win we assign strong positive or negative outcomes to eating food. All those things are not normally present. If you look at animals that there they eat. they're hungry the very simple right right so Is it something we're like. How does that begin. Is it something where we should start thinking more about how and why we instead of what we're eating. Oh you are so right it certainly takes both how why and what we eat to make helpful choices especially if you're considering the energy balanced manner but for many of us we need to take a moment and consider why we chose food no before you put it in your mouth and by by thinking. Why did i reach for that. You might be led to change even that choice or how much of it to consume so that leads us to the next question in terms of how do you stop that sort of negative talk. You have going on your head or the guilt that leads to from maybe eating that type of food i. I don't think that are self talk regarding eating or food lives in isolation all right if you look at your entire body environment life everything and we're being very holistic here. It's not an isolation. So i'll reference psychology today. They mentioned an organization that indicated eighty percent of one's thoughts on a daily basis are negative. So your thought about a meeting your thought about. Are you gonna make it home on time. Whatever were negative and then. I talked to a colleague kate bruno. She's a dietitian specializing in eating disorders. Out of charlottesville. Virginia and she said the way we treat ourselves is often an expression of underlying pain emotion. Self esteem self worth. And that's not just about eating the way you treat yourself in how you dress in the people relationships you choose so i think one has to really talk. Readjust the conversation that you have with yourself. In general about how productive you are how your projects are size about your appearance. There are many suggestions offered by psychology professionals and therapists and counselors to improve this dialogue. That we have with ourselves so one way is by rephrasing statements. You make about yourself. These internal conversations you have so for example instead of saying. I didn't eat well this week. You need to point out the successes. Well i managed to get in several good balanced meals instead of condemning yourself. While i just blew it with that night out you could say. I'm glad i was able to relax for a while and avoid those restrictions so debbie. I was wondering if you could touch on something i was thinking about. What are some of the negative signs that you would look for in somebody. That is really struggling with their diet. In this way. that's great One is certainly. If you're you know overhearing verbal comments out loud all these internal thoughts that are supposed to be internal right. That are actually out loud. A lot of times someone will be saying not to you directly but in your vicinity like. I shouldn't eat this this brownies. Bad for me. You know kind of language. But what i look for which oftentimes family members our loved. Ones won't know about so this would be more about you than than someone else but a red flag that we tend to look for if someone is eating in private or secret or or sneaking food than you know. There's a lot of shame and blame and That kind of negativity associated with it if they can't be honest with themselves to have it at the table and i think maybe maybe looking for some therapy or addressing that is is worth doing. I think sometimes dealing with issues especially for people who are on the younger side. It's very emotional and embarrassing topic to discuss especially among friends and family. I think what would be your best advice in terms of going forward with some uc's uc struggling with that. What would be your best way of finding them helper seeking out help for them. I i would definitely i know the term eating disorders sounds strong to anyone that oil. That's only anorexia and bulimia that's all clinically diagnosed blah blah blah. But it's not. I worked with a college athlete. That had gone away to another state and her coach basically put on temporary leave from the team because she was so overly this restrictive this. It's was on how helpful the foods were and so she wouldn't eat anything no didn't fit in her her paradigm. It didn't have necessarily to do with the calories or her weight. It was just oh i can't eat anything. That has an advocate. I can't eat anything that has colored. I can't eat anything and it. Just so her narrow became so small

And i'm just looking forward to waking up every morning and not having to worry about what foolishness is donald trump going to do today. I'm just so excited. So i wearing my stacey. Abrams shirt today because she is the. Mvp and georgia everything that she has done. And i do wanna talk about the voters but first we gotta talk about how the fifty three percent as now fifty. Five percent the karens really care and in a extended their care majority like fifty five percent of white women voted for donald trump. This is not surprise. The not surprise at all that this is where we are so would love to hear from you when you saw the fifty five percent or you shot. What's going through your mind. I'm so sad that i expected this and i spent a lot of time. Kind of feeling level of guilt around expecting this and becoming numb to that level of betrayal that we as loan of color no expect and have experience again and again and just understanding that patriarchy is drug and white supremacy as a drug and so it's been rough to really think about how complicit the majority of white women are and their accomplices to this kind of terror their accomplices to having a lack of empathy for other marginalized people and not really seeing themselves in the reality of being marginalized people even despite what's happening on the supreme court even despite having multiple sexual predators on the supreme court and one in the white house so for me. It's it's really hard. I wrote a piece in twenty seventeen and the headline for it was. It's complicated. White women white men and white supremacy. And i have thought about it a lot and thought about this history from the plantations to now of the covenant Around how white supremacist. Patriarchy really needs. White women to continue to have it fueled. And that's the thing that i think. I have a lot of grief about that There despite them enduring all of the same kinds of misogynistic a reality Face around the world obviously with their privilege as a part of got They're still the idea that rejecting white supremacy is going to push them away from the privileges and power that they do have and it's easier to accept that to maintain what positioning they have over us. Who are not covered by. That are not protected by that. And so it's a little bit me. When i think about people who've defied bisque over fifty percent of people like heather hair or viola liu so those women were made martyrs that they dared to defy the white patriarchy in paid the price with their lives. So it's something. I think about quite a bit because i I have a sense of understanding. About how conditioning led to that and that by no means means that. I'm keeping for anyone but to say that they also really need to recognize that. That white supremacy patriarchy depends on them to go forth. And even richard spencer and the charlottesville the the language that they used around the invitation to charlottesville had language in it calling on white women. They recognized that. We need you to continue to serve your role for us to prosper. And for me as a black woman i think black men in a different power dynamic of a world where to do that i was stopped that right there because i'd be subordinate in it. But the fact that women are saying. I'll take those crumbs an order to still be over these other people. That's the part. That's still sits really painfully with me.

Debra Messing; AJCs Groundbreaking State of Antisemitism in America Report

"Messing is probably best known for her role as Grace Adler on the long running Sitcom will and grace. She has starred in movies and even been the voice behind cartoons. But for the past several months, she has been one of the voices behind a podcast called the dissenters since May Deborah and her co host Donna Damiani have interviewed men and women who have made their. Mark Challenging the status quo but the penultimate episode that aired this month was particularly powerful Deborah and her co host invited Dr Edith Eba eager a ninety three year old Holocaust survivor to share her memories of the past and thoughts on present day politics and the future Deborah is here now to talk about that episode and her own experiences with anti-semitism Deborah. Welcome. Thank you so much. So tell us about this podcast, the dissenters what you're trying to accomplish with each episode and how your conversation with Dr Eager Fit that theme. The dissenters created as a response to the suffering that we saw around our country over the last few years, and also in response to the activists that have stepped forward and taken it upon themselves to try and make things better. My friend Montana Diani, she is the CO host. She was a religious refugee came to the country at six years old she and I have both been very active in activism reading these pieces about these extraordinary people from around the world doing extraordinary things, and we would send them to each other in order to sort of buoy each other when we. Would start to feel overwhelmed and it always sort of kept us moving forward and one day we just realized that as much as was uplifting us it would most likely uplift other people to hear about the works of these what we call accidental activists we wanted to ultimately inspire and empower people to recognize that you don't have to have a certain education. You don't have to have a certain following and social media in order to be an activist all you have to do is just recognize something feels wrong and take one step towards doing something touted doctor eager fit into this lineup. She is a ninety three year old Holocaust survivor. Who came face to face with Dr Mangala when she was a teenager at the camps, she lost her mom and dad and went through horrible torture and trauma, and came to America and created a family and. Got A PhD and has used her experience and trauma in order to help people coming home from war to heal from their trauma. She has written two books and she decided to become a healer. And we just felt like she did not have any idea what her life would be. Once she got out of the concentration camp. Yeah and she was able to look towards the future to have hope and ultimately choose to do something that would help others. How did you first discover Dr Eager Montana and I are just really really curious people. So we are constantly reading. We are watching Ted talks. It was a Ted talk of her that we saw and ultimately we felt given the fact that there is this surge of anti-semitism and racial strife in our country that it felt particularly timely and important to highlight her and her journey because in our research, we discovered that three quarters of millennials who are people who are in their mid thirties do not know what Auschwitz is such a stunning statistic and kind of unimaginable that we felt like, okay. This it's incumbent on us to have someone who was there and lived it to assert that it really did happen and to celebrate her as well. You mentioned the lack of knowledge about concentration camps AJC. Of course, just released its first report on the state of anti-semitism in. America. And found that more than half of Americans don't know the meaning of the word anti-semitism. Some haven't even heard the word before. With Charlottesville and. Is seemingly explosion of white nationalism and Antisemitism Nazis everywhere in juxtaposition to the second wave of civil rights protesting it's very interesting that people don't protest against anti-semitism people flood the streets, for racism. And when you look at Charlottesville, the Nazis were screaming about two groups about black people and Jews. And we really are the most natural allies in the world and it really was just something that I just sat with for a while about like why is it that people don't protest four us? You're Jewish grew up in a predominantly non Jewish environment. Did you experience anti-semitism growing up I? Did? Can you speak to that a little bit? Sure. I remember I was in second grade and we were lining up. To go to Jim and I got in line and a little boy me and said, get to the back of the line Kaik And I didn't know what the word meant the teacher overheard and immediately grabbed the boy and sent him down to the principal's office I. Remember everyone looking at me like I had done something wrong. And as much as I didn't understand what was happening I understood that it would have been better if I just stayed silent and I just wanted the board to come back and everybody to just be normal and stop looking at me and a couple of years later it was Halloween and my grandfather was visiting and we woke up and a swastika was painted on his car. In our driveway. And I recall my mother just standing at the front door looking at it and I felt her fear I felt endanger and I, remember no one said a word. Just, you know my mom said get in the house. And somehow the car disappeared. And we didn't talk about it. and. So it became very clear to me from a very young age that I was an other. That I was different from everybody the community and that difference wasn't good. And Somehow I had taken on a sense of shame about the fact that I was Jewish and I actually recall in highschool. My father was president of the Temple President of the Jewish Federation. My mother was Vice President of the Jewish Federation very, very, very active in the community. And we would stay home obviously for the High Holidays and I remember coming back in after the High Holidays and someone saying, why were you out and I said, oh, it was yom. Kippur and. He got really mad they were like. How come you get that off and you get Christmas off? Why don't we get off and after that encounter anytime I would stay home because of a Jewish holiday I would lie and say that I had been sick. Wow. I WANNA, go back to your conversation with Dr Eager and I'd like for you to share what your biggest takeaways were. It's so powerful because she speaks about will lasting that her mother said to her in the cattle car. That essentially reality is whatever you have in your mind and in your heart. And bad things pass trauma passes and her first night there. Joseph Mangla went into the barracks and made her dance and she loved opera and she said that she got through it because she imagined that she was on a stage and they were playing Makovsky Romeo and Juliet. And she said and I danced beautifully and I loved it. That's how I survived. For me what was really remarkable was hearing everything that she went through and the fact that she landed. was that she was grateful for all of the terror and trauma and pain that she had experienced. She felt that she literally calls them a gift. That is something that is so amped medical to the way at least. I think about someone who has survived the Holocaust it really was a full paradigm shift for me to hear how she got there and ultimately how she healed herself. Yeah. Well, certainly, the testimonies of the survivors are a gift to all of us in terms of preserving the memory and the lessons that we can take from their experiences. So thank you for giving Dr, eager another platform to share that story with another audience that needs to learn and learn the lessons of her experience. I will tell you one of the most moving parts for me was the separation from her mother when they got to Auschwitz and how the experience of children being separated from their parents at the border was a trigger for her honestly I can't do it justice. Let's listen to a clip. Van. Is Show children being separated that their border? I had terrible night mash. Remember him and my mother was. Towed to go this way, I followed my mother. And this guy told me that I'm GONNA see my mother very soon. She just GonNa take a shower and promptly I was on the other side which meant life. So you see mandating trigger today for the me The time and everything was taken from me. Why was it important to include that in the podcast? I. Think when we witnessed that kind of wrongdoing that is really a crime against humanity, it reminds us how fragile we are. That we don't learn from the past potentially and we have to be vigilant every day in making sure that what we are putting out into the world is modeling compassionate. Inclusion.

Joe Biden Says He Would Repeal The Trump Tax Cuts

"Degrade Steve Cortes a man I am pleased to call a friend one of the strongest advocates for conservatism out there Steve Cortes welcome to the show my friend. Dan You're a great. American thanks for having me. Let's together with the audience. Make America great again, a listen man fingers across toes across legs or everything that can be crossed is cross. The alternative is disastrous. Love you on television Cable News and radio I really believe you are one of the strongest advocates for the President is growth agenda out there. It's why I wanted to have you on for our election special here. Let me get right to it. Listen obviously the media sucks I mean we can just get past that. Now we need to you know they're terrible but what are the things that really bothers me about them as they haven't nailed down yet Joe Biden on his cataclysmic middle-class tax bomb coming. He said Steve Repeatedly he's going to repeal the trump tax cuts. Now, anyone can go to the Internet and look up the trump tax cuts. It's not hard and you could see that the middle class got a huge tax cut. So if Biden's go to repeal them, doesn't that mean by default that Joe Biden is going to high taxes on the middle class. Right where you don't have to be a mathematician to follow that logic a lot right eighty, two percent of American people got a tax cut got tax. Because of the momentous 2017 tax cuts, and by the way, let's talk about just how effective those tax cuts have been twenty thousand nineteen. So those tax cuts were in two thousand seventeen didn't really start to take effect until twenty eighteen and really kicked in by twenty thousand nine, which was also the last full year that thank goodness we were free of China virus before we were invaded with this terrible virus and in Twenty nineteen what happened? Well, it was the best year in American history for workers literally now, my opinion, that's what the numbers tell us six point eight percent wage growth an all time record by a mile even. Better than that Dan for the deplorables for blue collar people, nine percent wage growth minorities did better than the average everyone did well, okay. Look we. We don't WanNa put people in the silos and only view that way by identity politics. Everyone did well the wealthy to the most modest earners but the point is this strivers the economic underdogs, the people who had languished so badly lagged behind during the slow growth years that Biden was in the White House those are the people of who leaked to the front because of those tax cuts and I don't want just brag about the past it's happening again right now for example to. Bore your audience with my data but I spent twenty five years on Wall Street. So I spent a lot of time watching the numbers and these numbers lately they are defying Wall Street expectations by the way to define all of the Scottish who thought that we could never get this much ground back this quickly, we know we still have work to do. There are still too many people who are out of work right now because of what the Chinese Communist Party did to the world, but we can also rightly celebrate the amazing economic progress right now in this country and it's particularly due to the open states, i. Call them the Liberty States places like Florida which has opened aggressively, and smartly an economy economy is absolutely humming. So because of this, for example, manufacturing wages just in September, most recent report, hit a new all-time high there up eleven percent so far average hourly earnings for production people not the managers production people in manufacturing that rate, and that's including the pandemic eleven percent so far in the trump presidency and and that rate is fifty percent better than the last four years of Obama Biden and I I say the last four years because I'm trying to be fair here and not Cherry picking penalize them for the Nine recession so. They won't be fair to you I that's very nice. You a noble man I, give them nothing I screw them tired of them but that's very generous. You're a more noble guy than me in that respect but Steve doesn't it infuriated listen my listeners here this every day on my show on my daily show this. The media drives me nuts but this one thing drives me crazy because it's such a simple question that you know I'll be fair from it at Biden could clear up right away. Biden could say, Hey, I'm not gonNA repeal the trump tax cuts because they are tax cuts for the middle class and I'm just GONNA high taxes on the rich with a new bill. You know why he won't say that because they'll have to acknowledge that the media that trump cut taxes for. The middle class that's why he won't answer Becua- that's what I want to pull my hair just ask them the damn question. So you're not going to repeal the taxes just say it right and the media look unfortunately they are all too willing to be complicit in Joe Biden's lies. Let's face it Joe. Biden. Started his entire campaign on a lie on the I think the most malicious lie in American public life, which is the fine people hopes the lie of Charlottesville the. That president trump praised violent bigots in Charlottesville when in fact he said the exact opposite he condemned them totally an explicit terms. So he has been spreading that lie with the media's assistance since the very beginning of his campaign. So unfortunately, if they're willing to spread that live that toxic lie is so divisive and untrue just totally proven untrue. Then of course, they're willing to also help him spa spread lies that probably aren't quite as bad regarding taxes. It's very clear unfortunately that we don't really have. A journalism very much in this country certainly, not in the legacy outlets we do in in platforms like yours but not in the legacy outlets, they're completely corrupted. They're completely on the tank for Joe Biden, and we see it nowhere of more exemplified unfortunately than their intent to completely ignore the biggest story of this entire campaign, which is, of course, the revelations about the Biden cartel selling us out to communist

"If you're American, you probably think of free speech as the default. Just the way things are. And I. Don't know where it enters the stuff. I don't know if it's in the water or if it's in the kindergarten curriculum Evelyn. Is Not American, but it's only something that I have encountered faith in years is just like first amendment fundamentalism she's an Australian who lives in Massachusetts and she's one of most dynamic and nuanced thinkers. Online speech. She lectures at Harvard Law School. You came here to study kind of First Amendment Law to look at this stuff. As an outsider, what was your impression of the US fundamental adherence to free speech? I feel a little bit like gas lit as a foreigner when you come to America. As I did for years ago to Study Comparative Constitutional, Law, and free speech One of the most striking things about American free speech doctrine is this like this example of there were Nazis that wanted to march in skokie. I know jumping straight to Nazis his kind of leaping into the free speech depend. But Evelyn's describing one of the most famous first amendment cases when that really tests American values, the story goes like this. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, a group of neo-nazis wanted to march in the Chicago suburb of skokie Illinois largely because a lot of Holocaust survivors lived there seven thousand concentration camp survivors living in the predominantly Jewish Chicago suburb of skokie not surprisingly, there was a huge legal fight cokie officials a block Nazi demonstrations with court injunctions when the Nazis appealed to the State Supreme Court a judge has refused to hear the case. But what might surprise you if you don't know the story is that the American Civil Liberties Union indeed a lawyer with the ACLU defended the Nazis right to March under the First Amendment saying the right to free expression with integral to who we are as a country. It's just such an iconic story of the literal Nazis were going to be allowed to marching the street and as a foreigner you come here, new learn that and normally deland that it's it's not like these inconvenient embarrassment about Assessment Amendment Law. It's this like really proud one of the truly great victories for the First Amendment was that it will protect the speech that we hate because it is you know Betta to have it out in the urban it's better to meet it with county speech and we just can't trust the government to suppress as an Australian very striking. I don't even have a right to free speech. We don't have a bill of rights and our Constitution it's it's like a completely foreign idea this fight over unfettered free speech and in fact, where it collides with Anti Semitism and Holocaust denial broke into the news cycle again, this week, there's a split screen like the Supreme Court confirmation hearings going on on one side, and then on the other side facebook releases a blog post the company which has always said it values free expression above everything else announced that it would ban any content that denies or distorts the Holocaust. Two days later, twitter did the same thing. It might seem like banning Holocaust denial is a pretty easy call, but it was only a few years ago that facebook said, it wouldn't prohibit Holocaust to nihilism on its platform. which is part of why and says, this is a really big deal I. think this is like a really iconic moment in the history of the company and its thinking and its evolution around its rules. There is no more emblematic rule that facebook had about. To First Amendment Principles. Today on the show.

Good Monday dot com today. I, WanNa talk about how seismic shift this is if we think back to just two years ago. Mark Zuckerberg gave a very now well known interview to Cara Swisher. And said, she didn't believe that posts that deny the Holocaust should be taken down. I believe that our platform should take down because I think that there are things different people get wrong. either. I don't think that they're intentionally getting a wrong but I think that they. They might be but go home. It's hard to pune intent. Boy. It is a big journey from. People get things wrong even though I might find it personally offensive. To. My own thinking has evolved. The big thing that they always have hung onto was we don't WanNa be arbiters of truth, and we will not take content down purely on the basis that it's false. We might take it on the down on the basis that its nudity or that it's hate speech or that it has other sort of effects but we weren't take content down just because it's wrong and that's sort of what's reflected in that quote from Makoto Takhar Swisher is you know some people get things wrong sometimes and the the pandemic literally changed that decision overnight in the context of a global public health emergency they abandoned that they said we will take down. False information about the pandemic because it poses a public health risk, and now we're playing ball like now companies are taking content down on the basis that it's false and we're now seeing it in other areas. We saw it in the context of the wildfires in West my country was on file for months. In December and January, and there were lots of false rumors about the cause of the fires and facebook didn't take anything down and then Oregon was on fire A. Couple of months ago, and suddenly they were taking down misinformation about the cause of their as far as think a stock contrast as you can draw. It's still interesting to hear you peg this to the pandemic because I think about all the data points that came before that this is. After the two thousand, sixteen election, it is after the Charlottesville unite the right rally, which took place in two thousand seventeen. Do you think the coronavirus pandemic is it sort of launching us into a new I guess area of thinking about content and speech on its own or or easy it kind of a I guess a catalyst for something that was going to happen anyway. Yeah. You're absolutely right that it's only sort of it's part of the broader trend. It was a particularly visible and sort of obvious example of the trend in the same way that the pandemic has made many sort of fundamental. Assumptions structures in society more visible, and we've sort of seen progressively moving more and more along that line of sort of okay. We copies all speech all the time. Let's balancing trysts and draw the line and I think that the pandemic was just sort of another step along that road. If you think about it that way these announcements from facebook and twitter about banning Holocaust denial or in line with other content moderation decisions we've seen this year like the outright ban on Cunanan content. But in other ways several and says the decision. Holocaust. Denial marks a deeper and more fundamental shift in how speeches police online Holocaust denial is one of these iconic things about the first amendment and I believe that one of the reasons why facebook sort of stuck to that principle for so long of allowing on services was because it's still considered itself a fundamentally American company attached to these first. Amendment ideals is robust marketplace of ideas. Which is bizarre when you think about it these these are clearly global companies now and most of they US bases outside all over America but there was still something that it couldn't let go of and so I think it's really when Audience First Amendment land anymore like vc's we are now in this unknown landscape of trying to work out what norms we can attach ourselves to.

"What is up with US white people? I've been thinking about that a lot the last few years and I know I have company. Look I get it. People of Color have been asking that question for centuries. But I think a growing number of white folks are to. Given what's been going on out there In our country. And notice I said what's up with US white people. Does right now, I'm not talking about those white people. The ones with the swastikas in the hoods and the tiki torches. They are a problem, a threat, the perpetrate most of the terrorism in our country as you all in Charlottesville better than most. But I'm talking about something bigger more pervasive. Talking about all of us. White folks writ. Large. And maybe especially people sorta like me. self-described progressive. Don't WANNA be. Racist. Goodway people. Any good white people in the room? I was raised to be that sort of person. I was a little kid in the sixties and seventies, and to give you some sense of my parents actual public opinion polls at the time showed that only a small minority about twenty percent of white Americans approved supported. Martin Luther King and his work with the civil rights. Movement. Wild. Dr King was still alive. I'm proud to say my parents were in that group. Race got talked about in our house. And when the show's about the dealt was raised with come on the television, they would sit us kids down made sure we watched the Sidney Poitier movies roots. The message was loud and clear and I got it. Racism is wrong. Racists are bad people. At the same time we lived in a very white place in Minnesota. And I'll just speak for myself I. think that me to believe. that. Those white racists on the TV screen were being beamed in from some other place. Wasn't about US really. Did Not feel implicated. Now I would say I'm still in recovery from that early impression. I. Got into journalism in part because I cared about things like equality. Justice. For a long time racism was just such a puzzle to me. Why is it still with us when it's so clearly wrong. Why such a persistent force. Maybe. I was puzzled because I wasn't yet in the right place or asking the right questions. Have, you noticed that when? People in our mostly white. Media Report on what they consider to be racial issues what we consider to be racial issues what that usually means that we're pointing our cameras and our microphones are gaze at people of Color. Asking questions like. How are black folks or native Americans Latino or Asian Americans how are they doing? In a given community or with respect to some issue, the economy education. I've done. My share of that kind of journalism over many years. But then George Zimmerman killed. Trayvon Martin. Followed by this unending string of high-profile police shootings of armed black people and the rise of the black lives matter movement. dylann roof in the Charleston. Massacre. Oscarssowhite. All the. Incidents from the day to day of American Life. These overtly racist incidents that we now get to see because they're captured on smartphones sent across the Internet. And beneath those visible events the stubborn data studies showing. Systemic racism. Every institution we have. Housing Segregation. Job Discrimination. The deeply racialist inequities in our schools and criminal justice system. And what really did it for me? I know I'm not alone in this either. The RISE OF DONALD TRUMP. And the discovery that a solid majority of white. Americans. would embrace or at least accept. Such a raw bitter kind of white identity politics. This is all disturbing to me as a human being. As a journalist I found myself. Turning the Lens around. thinking. White folks so the story. Whiteness is a story. And also thinking. Can I do that? What would a podcast series about whiteness sound like?

"There are few people have been around longer in Democratic Party politics. Senate better insights into how to win and lose elections than Terry McAuliffe breath. He was for years. One of the top fundraisers for his good friends bill and Hillary Clinton and then later served as chair of the Democratic National Committee. He was elected Governor Virginia and was widely talked about as a possible twenty twenty presidential candidate last April after looking. Hard at a run McCall of took himself out of the race and now seems to have his sights on another run as governor but there are wildcards down the road including the growing prospect that the battle for the Democratic Arctic nomination may not be settled by the time the primaries are over and for the first time in modern memory there could be a brokered convention. Might there yet be McAuliffe. Boom went for president will discuss that and much more with McAuliffe himself on this episode of skulduggery because people have gotta know whether or not their president's across. I'm not a crop.

"And I do think that there are a lot of people in this country that like kind of like Trump's anti-establishment stuff, but it shows up in polls like I don't like the tweets. Well, the tweets are a big deal. Yeah. The win. The tweets are inspiring radical frightening violent people, then that should really rise to the top of your how your voting we've seen this happen before to his lowest approval ratings came after Charlottesville after the Helsinki press conference with Putin. Putin just moments where he has totally dropped the ball in the worst way in his role as leader as national unifier as president. I mean like. People in the country do want someone who's going to console them during times of tragedy who's going to try to bring the country together who's going to try to rise above parson politics. He can't do any of those things. He's a part time president we know this because we read all the stories like the guy has like literally three hours in the middle of the day routinely where he just does nothing but watch TV in tweet. Right. So we know that he's not doing the job. Generally, there's part. There's parts of us are like, oh, that's probably good that he's not more effective. But you know, you can't hide when you've completely abdicated your role as a moral leader or a sort of a healer for the country and do think Democrats in this last week should think about including in their message when they're on the stump. Like, it is it is Democrats job in a way because there's such a vacuum of leadership on the Republican side to show people what real leaders sound like and look like, and what real leaders, do, you know, like I keep thinking of Andrew gillum, you know, closing statement in his. Debate with Rhonda Santa's when he said, you know in Trump's America, we've been led to believe that we've got a step on our neighbor's shoulder and they're back in their face in order to get ahead. While I reject that. And I do think we got to give people a reminder of what you know, America can be when it has relievers were willing to rise above all this bullshit. You know, and you saw I mean, you saw some of this in the wake of Pittsburgh CBS reported that de Masella Berrios and his family drove to Pittsburgh from New York City as an African American family who were also first responders too the Emanuel AME shooting in Charleston, and he said, you know, all faith communities. No matter nationality or race need to stick together. And support each other in times like these there was the leader of an Islamic center in Pittsburgh announces that the Muslim community has raised more than seventy thousand dollars synagogue attack victims, and of course, think about the Jewish center itself in that in the Jewish organization that was helping refugees were Muslims of that. We're targets the attack. Like, there's there's good in this country. And I think Democrats have to remind. People of what that isn't as final week. Just a real quick point on the refugees. I mean, Trump has demagogued the the concept of helping out refugees he isn't made that somehow an evil or bad thing. Right. Because he claims they're all ISIS. I mean, when you think like the history of the Jewish people were stateless, you know, who've had to flee the most horrific thing could ever imagined in the holocaust..

"Yeah. During the campaign, he tweeted a picture of Hillary Clinton superimposed on a star of David over dollar bills after Julia published a profile of Milania, which the White House didn't like she was del used with antisemitic threats. Trump was asked to condemn those attacks on Yawkey from his supporters, and he said, quote, I don't have a message for them. And of course, as you pointed out, the worst example, Charlottesville people marching in Charlottesville. Chanting Jews will not replace us. And Donald Trump saying there were fine people on both sides. I want a reporter. This is very simple to ask Donald Trump asked Sarah Huckabee Sanders, ask anyone at the White House today does the president still believe. That the people in Charlottesville who were chanting Jews will not our place us. We're fine people that there were fine people among those margin. I want someone to ask them that question. Because if they really say he's not anti-semitic that he condemns kind of attacks that he condemns the kind of hate that leads to these tax than than they will answer the president. That's know what I don't believe. They were find people. I'm sorry. I shouldn't have said that. But he won't because he hasn't because nothing has changed since Charlottesville. The only thing that's changed is somehow like the news move so fast. Our collective memory doesn't really remember the fact that in Charlottesville, he issued these horrible horrible statements and has not apologized for them. I mean, there was an article last year where I think the independent of the UK Trump suggested that Jews might be secretly committing antisemitic hate crimes on themselves. So that he looks at I forgot about that. I mean, Adam Serwer who writes for the Atlantic wrote? I think as crystal clear a piece about how the spark for the worst antisemitic massacre in America. History was a racist hoax. That was kind of came through the weird Twitter ecosystem through Lou Dobbs. Then got on FOX and friends and then got to the president. And he decided that he was going to demagogue a caravan desperate people because he thought it was going to be an election issue that inspired this individual to do what he did. Yeah. Period. You know, I keep thinking like the Republican line is well, no one can control what their supporters do on either side. And there's there's rhetoric on both sides that's gotten out of hand. Right. But what would we be saying right now, if these perpetrators of these crimes are this hate, and this violence that we've seen over the last week or Muslim exactly what would we be doing? If there was a connection ties, wouldn't we say that that ISIS propaganda inspired some of these people who said, I'm doing this in the name of ISIS, which we've seen all the time, of course. And we'd be calling on every single Muslim on the planet to denounce this act into do better somehow into somehow fix. The problem. I mean, the these these people are these right wingers are incapable of looking within their party within themselves and seeing the harm that's being created here..

"Of excluded communities nationwide. Well, after Charlottesville, I want people to focus on the statues of policies that are just as permanent or impermanent. As many of the confederate statues, we still have criminal Justice laws in this country that need to be taken down. There's no question about it. We still have underfunded schools and school funding formulas that need to be taken down. You know, we still have school districts district lines that keep funding from getting to educating white folks to stop being racist. These things need to be taken down. And so after Charlottesville, I hope that we learned that these are statues, but there are policies that are more damaging on the everyday lives of black Brown people in this country. And finally, community said again, who ties together various strands of this conversation, the system of racial violence and stratification then enters apart from Charlottesville the way we acknowledge fail to our history and what kinds of public policy solutions are needed to move forward in this country. What I think has been lacking in the conversation around Charlottesville and post Charlottesville is really, as I mentioned earlier, an acknowledgement about the brutality of racially stratified, economic and social system. And if Americans had ten minutes to spend to reflect on Charlottesville, I do think though thing that they should do is spend some time looking online at the national memorial for peace and Justice, which opened in April of twenty eight teen, and which depicts our history of lynching and other brutality, and then in terms of how do we move forward? Well, you know, I do think that as we're thinking about race relations in the US, there are couple of different things that I think are important first thing is, and a lot of my work is really focused on this is that I just don't think they're enough efforts to try to reach across the communities that you're not part of. And to the extent that Americans on their own. You can do that through community organizations or volunteering or whatever. I think that that's really important from a political perspective. However, in a policy perspective, I do think it's going to be very important for us to think through particularly on the local regional and state levels. How do we address the fact that we have very isolated and segregated residential communities which are now not only segregated residential, but they're segregated in terms of experience segregated in terms of social networks are segregated in terms of kind of media that they consume. So I think we step back and think about policy solutions. We need to be intentional about Halsey solutions that try to break those kinds of silos. And I think that's best achieved at something other than the national level because people live in communities and they live in neighborhoods..

"There are communities like Charlottesville newly aware of the implications of the memorials they have placed in their public spaces, and it is a great debate how to handle his memorials because their existence is actually also part of our history. We need not wipe out. The fact that we, for many years proclaims the grandeur of generals who fought a war to defend the ownership of human beings. So we don't wanna wipe out that history because it's important to recall that is how we saw our own history. There's a real role for historians in this time to talk about how we can fact check the public history while at the same time we're calling the ways in which we have told ourselves myths that were in fact very corrosive to the public good. And I think that those conversations are ongoing. So how do communities if they want to change the way that commemorate their own history without a some fear erasing it. Here's Andre Perry after Charlottesville. There's an interesting phenomenon university of. Jinya dedicated a building in the name of one of their first graduates. Vivian pin Dr. Vivian pin has a tremendous record in the medical community. She use a director and I h served as the head of many academic departments. She's a legend in the medical field. They named a building after, and I think it's not enough to just take confederate statues down what are we going to put up? What are we going to represent in their place? And so communities really do need to come together and think about what represents our democracy. Because clearly a confederate monument did not represent the moxie, but there are people and symbols that do and if time passes and we determined that those folks really did not then take them down, but clearly we can do better than confederate monuments. And also nessa Williams. So I was recently visiting the National Cathedral here in Washington DC, which is a cordial monument that brings together both Christian imagery but also imagery of American history. There are monuments to Lincoln, and there are monuments to Washington, and for a long time, there have been two stained glass windows that celebrated Robert Lee and stonewall Jackson. Well, after the events in Charlottesville the church voted to remove those windows and replace them. And if you visit the National Cathedral today, there are rows of utilise stained glass windows and two pieces of plywood. And so this is still a debate, right? What's going to go in that place? And I think both contextualising frankly, in some cases, simply removing monuments to the great gallantry of white supremacist army is a good idea, but that's not a task that's complete yet. Right? There's actually another monument even within the National Cathedral to Robert Lee. There's an embroidered nealer which you kneel on when you're in a pew, celebrates him alongside the Naylor's. Celebrate every president. The United States ever had alongside nealer for Harriet Tubman. So there's this interesting period of transition that we live in, and I think we both need to revise the way in which we call the confederacy in particular. But also we need to bring back in it enormous history that we have lost. If you visit Germany in train stations on public streets apartment buildings, there are plaques that recall the.

"Vanessa, Williamson focused on the contemporary role of the black lives matter movement and bringing to the fore the ways black and other non white Americans are living today with racial violence and also how the election of the nation's first black President. Barack Obama though only did not mean racial issues were silenced in America, but in fact, shifted racial attitudes in a more extreme direction. I think black lives matter has played a really critical role in connecting the dots between what we see in policing and mass incarceration today and the long history of state violence against black people. I think there's been. Awakening, particularly among white Americans, to the extent of that history to the extent to which that history is still with us. And so the other way in which black lives matter and Charlottesville sort of interrelated. In addition to this, creating of new visibility of the, it's into it, racial violence still pervades this country. We're in a period of racial reaction. Now, it's very clear that for a set of white conservative people, the election black president was very frightening. Proxima said he was bringing change from any people that was message of hope for some people, it was not. They did recognize the change. They just weren't very happy about it. And since that time there has been sort of in ongoing reaction. I think that certainly the Trump presidency makes a part of and some of that, I think dates not just the election of a black president, but to the visibility of black political movement. That was focused very specifically on the ways in which state act. Ters have oppressed ethnic minorities in this country, right. I think the reaction that we've seen on the far right has been both to the electoral success of a black president, the proof that a multi-racial coalition could elect a president in this country now, but also and I think there's some evidence to suggest that twenty fourteen twenty fifteen is when you start to see some of that shift to sort of kind of racial conservatism as a real motivator, people's political attitudes. It's also part of this response to a powerful black political movement. A New York Times. CBS news poll in twenty nine just after President. Obama assumed office showed that about two thirds of Americans deemed race relations to be generally good in two thousand sixteen as President. Obama ended his second term that same poll found nearly seventy percent of Americans thought race relations were mostly bad. Entre Perry also spoke to the seeming contradiction between the election of a black president and the fact that this event didn't resolve issues. Racism. In fact, Perry says that many white people don't want to admit that many of the mundane things. They do still have a negative impact on black people's lives. After the election of President Obama, there was this wanting particularly among white folk and particularly around middle-class folk to say that the problems that exist social problems that exist in America are those of class and not race that we've overcome racism in America that the election of an African American president is a sign that anything is possible. Well, if you're black, you live in Baltimore. We know that that's not true that people prejudge and do not provide opportunities to those who are black and the folks who are burdened with that reality are clear that racism is still alive and well. And so yes, more white folk than most are those that want to believe that racism is over because they can benefit from that ignorance doesn't do. Black folk any good to believe that racism doesn't exist. Because again, we feel it every day in a pocket books. You can look at wage differentials. You can look at homeownership. You can look at the cabinet of the United States of America. You can look at different agencies. You see it every day. The wild black hashtag is really a reflection of what we've known. All along people will call the police like its customer service that you could sleep in a dorm. You could sit in Starbucks, you can drive, you can shop and people will soom the worst of you in what's worse in a lot of my research in this area, the same stereotypes we ascribe to people, we place upon entire cities. I'm from a small black borough inside of Pittsburgh Wilkins Berg. And there's a lot of beliefs about the potential of Wilkins Berg or the lack thereof and those cities..

"You had a group on one side that was bad, and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent and nobody wants to say that, but I'll say right now, you had a group. You had a group on the other side that came charging in without a permit, and they were very, very violent that was President Donald Trump at a press conference to discuss it infrastructure policy in Trump Tower on August fifteenth. He also said that there was blame on both sides as well as very fine people on both sides these remarks followed the president's initial prepared remarks deliver August twelve. And when she said, quote, we condemn in the strongest possible terms, this agreed display of hatred, bigotry in violence on many sides, many sides unquote. Where they're very fine people on the side of the alt-right, some of even called the actions of white supremacists a form of domestic terrorism. The scholars I spoke with agreed here's community again who said she has no hesitations about characterizing Charlottesville violence as domestic terrorism. I think we have here in the US pretty healthy, homegrown domestic terrorist culture in some corners of the u. s. and I do think that it's actually a culture that has a long historical legacy is obviously a domestic terrorist group. And even when people weren't organized that way, the fact that you could have lynchings of people without due process is clearly assign that we have a history of terrorism here. And so I feel like the white supremacists who were engaging in these actions in Charlottesville where part of one of the histories of the US in that respect on repair Christmas agreed. I think white supremacy is a form of terrorism, and I think how we label terrorism is a form of white supremacy. The fact of the matter is we don't call the tax on black people. Terrorism is rife with problems. Black folk are terrorized every day in this country. Now we have the cell phone evidence to prove it. And so we try our best to hide the harsh realities that are imposed upon black people every day. And we excuse this terrorism away because white folk are doing it. I mean, but it's terrorism is trying to use intimidation to put certain people in their place or to move them out of existence or into another place. And that's happening all across the country. Once escalates to violence. I have a hard time seeing how it's not domestic terrorism in terms of if we're going to define terrorism as violence against civilians in the name of a political cause or ideology. I think within the legal framework that the United States has terrorism is really only something that can be applied to foreign terrorist groups for the most part. So it can be very difficult to prosecute domestic terrorism by groups that are not say affiliated with Al Qaeda or the Islamic state. But in terms of the spirit of what terrorism actually is, I don't know how you look at some of these groups and the violence that they're carrying out and not conclude that it was politically motivated in some fashion. So I do think that it's an appropriate label for the kind of violence that we're seeing. I asked Chris to consider whether we can apply lessons from programs designed to prevent.

"I do not think that tros will wasn't one on. I think it's one in a long, long history of very dangerous, racial relations. And it's just the the most recent manifestation of that. And I think at its crocs what the Charlottesville protests symbolized was the fact that we, as a nation have done, absolutely nothing to aknowledge the brutality, the torture, the kind of terrorism that assistant based on a racially stratified society has led to. We have failed to really acknowledge that as a society. And as a result of that, you still have these episodes that. That pop up every so often that seem so surprising. This is the Brookings cafeteria podcast. I'm Fred dues, August, eleven, twelve, twenty seventeen white nationalists Neo confederates in Neo Nazis marched Charlottesville Virginia. With the stated intention of opposing the removal of a statue confederate general Robert early in the city's emancipation park. During those two days we witnessed these members of the so-called alt-right carrying torches chanting, Nazi slogans like blood and soil in clashing with counter protesters. Many people who turned out to oppose them are injured and a woman named Heather higher. It was there to stand up for diversity was killed by a man linked to white supremacist groups. After he rammed his car into the crowd. In the special edition of the Brookings cafeteria, four Brookings experts share their views on the events of that weekend.
