What We Can Learn About Christian Citizenship With John Zmirak
"There are many Americans that are looking to us. I talked to them on planes. I know that they are, they're worried about the times in which we live. And I know that God has allowed us the privilege of encouraging them and speaking the truth. You well, people listening to the program know that an hour or one I talked to Larry about the column, the article that he wrote in the spectator about this issue, he uses David French. It's not simply the single out David French, but it's an issue about how some Christians think and how it's not only faulty, but it's become very, very damaging. It's very harmful. And we need to correct it. And by God's grace, folks like David French and others will see this error by God's grace, I hope. But you yourself have written an article dealing with Larry's article and with this issue. So you write at stream stream dot org, the stream. Let's talk about that first and then we'll do something really fun, but we don't want to give it away. Go ahead. All right, I'm talking not just about David French, but some of the other writers who resemble whose arguments resemble his names like Russell Moore, rod prayer and stetzer Michael gerson people who were spectacularly and publicly anti Trump. At the time of a very close election. And when it was coming up to a very close election, where the balance was between electing this, the secret committee formally known as Joe Biden. This monstrosity that's happening around us that Joe Biden is the sock puppet for. Or voting for an imperfect candidate who made mean tweets, but tried to save babies. Donald Trump, I have my criticisms, Eric, you have yours, there are all things we wish he'd done differently. They were all things we would win sad or criticized. You know, because he's a human

Why McConnell Helped Schumer Increase Debt Limit
"Jake. It's here. i was about to slander. You betcha they wrote punchbowl news last night and took the day off. 'cause the feds rob welcome back by now no i. My phone was on silence. I apologize not problem. Date chairman of punchbowl. Get your punchbowl news at punchbowl news dot com check last hour. I played chuck schumer speech. You wrote your assessment of the binding legislative agenda. Did you take into account the impact of the shimmer speech which brosseau told maria barham yesterday has deeply soured the republican caucus. I mean to the point. They don't want to talk to the guy. yeah. I actually don't. They didn't talk much to anyway. I don't find that big. I don't find it to be this positive. I've been through a lot of michael's where speeches what we're supposed to ruin relationships. The fact is the reality is. There's not much cooperation that we anticipate anyway. I think the conventional wisdom is wrong on the democratic side. I think that because mcconnell blinked and this lasts debt limit fight he makes it less likely appoint again And i think that i just i. I don't think the speeches what did it. I mean it's not like we were in a golden era for cooperation. What did you make joe mansion face in his hands and then leaving. We reported at the time that he He used next live instead. It was. I read batting. Yeah i can't remember exactly what it was I think listen. I think i am the cynic here is you know hugh i think. Being against schumer is beneficial for him. But i do think. Joe manchin owns chuck schumer in a way In the sense that he can't get anything done. Schumer can't without joe mansion so You know what mansion said In in many respects was right that if you want to have more progressive agenda you don't have to worry about joe manchin so like progressives to the senate you know and i think that's the reality of it now. Can i explain to you. My theory of what happened last week. I think mitch mcconnell one. Even though people think he lost. I think he intended people think he lost so that he could win. In december he could not allow the debt crisis right now so he waited and waited and waited extended it till december and he will allow it in december. Couldn't allow it now. It might have the reconciliation going to a higher number now. The democrats have to work out their reconciliation and if they do they're going to have passed trillions of dollars in spending and they're gonna have to borrow for it to reconciliation to get your take ship sherman. I don't think that yeah i mean. Listen i i think that he. I don't think that he won or lost. I think this was kind of a stupid fight with an. It's now it was a stupid deal. That really screws over everyone involved. I mean i agree with you. He couldn't have a he could not afford to have a default And he did. In the only the i guess i would say. He won. Because schumer's main argument against reconciliation and lifting with reconciliation was that he didn't have time that was schumer's made argument yao He can't make that argument. So i i and i hear that I do hear that. There's a lot of anger in the republican conference. Though i mean. We can't underestimate that On what mcconnell. There's no movement to get rid of them that silliness that is coming from whatever wherever trump. We're getting that from. Oh you mean getting rid of mcconnell not not a not a chance

"michael" Discussed on The Michael Knowles Show
"So that was the worst thing is just law it's a complete fallacy if you read the book at essay my book The minimum jekyll john house. Who's georgetown law professor. He talks about how this concept of just law is really nonsensical. And i'll give you one example that you that you will agree with. It's in the book as well. There's an old lady and she basically signed a contract with some samba instructor for ten thousand dollars right. What's the just approach. One say the point of law is so people. Don't get exploited. We have to break the contract. The other person can say the contract is the basis of law. It's not the courts job to be an activist judge. We have to honor the contract. Both of those are perfectly reasonable perfectly objective and demonstrate that no matter who the judge is. They're going to bring their preconceptions to the court system. But i had a decentralized both sides if you had a decentralized system where you can choose what kind of rules you follow. It will have much more just and efficient and cheaper outcomes but it. Isn't that only a problem. If you believe that the free consent of individuals maximizing individual. Autonomy is the end of government. You know if if you really believe that. This woman has some right to solve. The samba instructor has a right to sign a ten thousand dollar contract. Whereas if you think that's hogwash. And you believe the justice is the end of government. And you believe that you don't actually have the right to do wrong and you don't have the right to just pursue whatever whims your your will tells you then. Couldn't you appeal to a higher authority. Couldn't you say it's immoral. It's exploitative it's Violates some aspect of the natural law rather the so you're in favor of judicial activism when it suits your purposes. I'm favor of the natural law. And i'm in favor. Favorite justice if the basis of government is justice wise it so darned bad delivering it. Well if i if. I'm gonna go to a restaurant and they're serving sushi and the fish keeps getting cooked at a certain point. This is not a sushi restaurant. Sure but but you know this is a fallen world. I i suppose this would be one of my divergences from some anarchists or some sort of proto anna arguing that the words ball. I don't think this is a utopia topi as possible. I agree with you that there's a lot of depravity in any country that is inevitable so so therefore any system of justice is going to be imperfect. There's no question about that sure so so granted all of that you know. Some systems of justice are better than others. Sure i'm more interested in peace and justice and liberty. You know if you and i base maybe you you invited me out to dinner and then basically you stick me with the bill. Justice would be like a pitch a fit but at the same night could be like okay. That's michael being michael. It applied both michelson. Either of us be the jerk and situation and corolla is enough pursue justice so as cherish and sure and i lost short. I've always relied on the kindness of strangers. But i'm also biting my tongue right because you did meet. Do me an injustice and you didn't pay for the bill that you promised right. We all have to have these little compromises day-to-day lives. So i think justice as a term is overrated. Let's talk about criminals. I perfectly have no problem with someone. Who's an assailant on children or a violent criminal They void their right to life. Right i have no with that at the same time. My biggest concern isn't retribution. My biggest concern is how do i make sure this person is never in a position to harm people again. That to me is a far bigger priority. That seeing justice be had necessarily but but i recognize that temptation i think it's widespread now to make rehabilitation or deterrence instrumentation. I just said the goal of pre by prison is important in in many cases isn't justice but like gotta get this guy off the streets because if he's on the streets he's going to be killing people but if that is the primary purpose of the prison then don't you open yourself up to all sorts of of moral quandaries for instance if as i believe it is. The purpose of prison is retribution for people who've primarily retribution although deterrence rehabilitation are secondary matters. Then a guy commits a crime. You bring them up on trial you throw them in the can if the primary purpose of prison is to get bad people off the streets then. Couldn't you throw someone in prison before. They've committed a crime right because they're very likely to because some social scientific data set has suggested that they're likely to commit one well that is the progressive mindset. Right follow the science. And i don't think at all. I think you if someone has to have demonstrably actually done something before. They're likely to do something. I i don't think that you obviously don't think i don't either. But i think that if if you come to the conclusion that you and i have then you you must also conclude that the primary purpose the sort of pregnant for criminal. Justice is retribution rather than some secondary goal. I i don't think it's retribution. If the person hasn't done anything richard richard. If that's what i mean. I don't think you should go to prison if you haven't done anything. But i think that therefore the primary purpose of prisons for instance is retribution. That is to say it is justice rather than some secondary aspect of impressive i. I wouldn't agree. That retribution injustice are anywhere near synonymous and i think a lot of times again. I and my goal versatile. The prison systems a whole other conversation. Which i'm sure you and i can have because there's lots of people who are in prison and a thing you as a christian certainly would agree is Things like the death penalty and innocent people being killed although you might argue that the that's overblown when that individual is innocent..

"Only play defense. You're not going to win. You need to Point your guns Toward the universities. Because that's where these ideas are. I promulgated where they train young people to be. The shock troops there for the progressive militia with enron hollywood who work in newspapers and they're the ones who shape the ideas of The country especially for young people. A lot of people frequently invoked nineteen eighty-four george orwell with this heart authoritarianism the book i would recommend. People read his aldous huxley world. a totally reverse. The persuasion is not with the stick. The persuasion his go work at this crappy job. Go home and watch stupid television we will provide for. You will give you food will put a roof over your head. Don't think and don't question us. And i think that model the realization that the corporate press has not just recently been a mechanism to sell narratives as opposed to information and to guide public opinion. But that this has been going on for a very long time limited one example. Which i think everyone can appreciate were all taught back in the. Dave william randolph. I the spanish american war you know a yellow journalism and that basically that led us into war during the mckinley administration. And then there's a record scratch and the corporate press is supposed to be objective and decent. That never happened. That's just one of the big lies That the media likes to tell about itself. Yeah yeah. I certainly agree with that. And you know this this sense of You know the the objective media just grew out of this liberal establishment that you know i guess sort of thrived in the middle of the twentieth century and increasingly is is collapsing. I i totally agree. You know orwell was huxley student. I think actually was his french teacher. And huxley wrote around seventy nine. I'd like your book by which you're missing here is the subtlety. You're missing how the regime is going. To use drugs. Promiscuous sex is gonna use pleasure to enslave people. Yeah and it's not. It's at that point becomes kind of like the greek myth of the lotus eaters. You're one the terms that you know. I've popularized which has become kind of loosened. Definition is the concept of the red pill. But if you go back the matrix the people who are in the matrix are having a pretty nice life. They have food they have a job they have a family they have to think about anything and therefore they don't have to worry about anything at. It's very useful. If i would like to be an elite to have a population which basically like an farm. Who aren't going to question my choices and just do what i like. The problem is at some point people. Wake up both on the right and the let's say this isn't working for me and then it's the media's job tell the rest of the population how to analyze this in how to receive it so one of the things why i'm hopeful and positive you'll agree with me on this after the twenty twenty election for the first time in my lifetime and you and i both fairly young the republicans and the right. Broadly speaking didn't turn their sights on joe biden. Nee turned it on media outlets are they realized. That biden is a symptom of a larger issue than biden. Himself is nowhere near as malevolent as many of these other entities and to realize. Okay these are the people who made something like a biden happen or or the lockdowns happen that i think that healthy analysis of who is against you is a much stronger position. I just make one more point. If you look at nancy pelosi and joe biden and if you look at. Let's oppose the harvard law faculty of the new york times editorial board which one of these groups of really has more contempt for you and your lifestyle and i think this is a very easy question to answer. Yeah yeah. I think you're certainly right. The the ruling elite involves a lot more than just a couple of politicians in washington dc. Frankly they're not even the most important people in in that equation right. You've got higher education lower education big tech hollywood the media all of these super national international organizations. And then you've got doddering joe biden. Who doesn't know which end is up. Absolutely now your answer to this is a very naughty word and freedom freedom three. Yes that's what. I just said freedom so i think what we've agreed basically on everything thus far. Now i think we're gonna disagree what What made you come to identifies an anarchist. What would how would you define. Anarchism is notoriously difficult to define people have lots of different definitions for it. And what does it mean practically if we said okay. Enough of our political system were going all in france. Baby sure so. Anarchism can be defined in one sentence. You do not speak for me. Everything else is simply. Application of the concept is the idea that political authority is inherently illegitimate. And just because laws passed is not give you any moral impetus to respect of follow it. In any respect it also means that when you look at the republicans democrats. You're looking at literally two different gangs. Who are fighting for turf war. Neither which have your interest at so. The black flag is the traditional symbol of anarchism. And i have the expression to black flag comes in many colors so the reason i wrote this anarchist handbook is different. Anarchist thinkers from the last two hundred years explaining what anarchism means to them and how it applies in terms of what that would mean right now it would mean things like An increase skepticism. The police because they are the ones who are forcing you and your home. They're the ones who are enforcing gun control laws. And every other eating that gretchen. Whitmer mario and gavin newsom flint to place it is having an increased skepticism of concentrations of power. Whether would be jeff bezos. The ivy leagues or the or the federal government as well as state governments An understanding that this idea of well. You and i disagree. But i'm going to respect your opinion when the person disagreeing with you is a politician and have the ability to enforce their views upon your family. You are under no obligation to take them seriously for one second and you should instead regard them with an enormous amount of concerns. Let's take a gun control issue for a second. You know politicians sits forward and says you know. I'm going to make it harder for you to get a gun to protect your home in your.

"Finally after years and years of anticipation we're bringing onto the show. One of the most interesting guys in the political media space right now. Michael malice who. I've been following for a long time. Follow on twitter and everything and i said michael. I can't believe that you're you're just coming on the show now and he reminded me that he deemed me like two years ago. And i missed it. Like i miss every dm. Like i miss every text. But i'm so pleased. The michael could be here today. Michael thanks for coming on the show. You know michael interesting is always a euphemism. You have dinner. This guy see like he was interesting. He was interesting. Yes that's true right now. You know one thing. Michael that i so i i should mention. You need no introduction. But you're the author of one of the two best titled books in human history. Dear reader the unauthorized autobiography of kim jong il That the only other Book of an equally. Great title is When harry became sally by ryan anderson. I the author of the new right journey of the fringe of american politics The author of the anarchist handbook. And and this is especially what. I want to talk about the author of an upcoming book about the white pill a cause for hope in our absolute decayed collapsing ruins of politics. What is the cause for hope. Michael will you just said it. It's a collapsing ruined. Politics is a disaster. There's no possibility for freedom through a political venue so to watch you know the elites basically cannibalized themselves. It's very hard for me Whether you're republican democrat independent whatever so look at joe biden literally voiding battles behind the resolute desk and think to yourself. This is a symbol of an empire at its strength. This is someone who really has is on top of things as opposed to you. Know we can bernie situation which we should be looking at with a great comedic applause and then also follows president trump. Donald trump was basically a third party candidate. He had no routes within the republican party at all Historically he endorsed romney but barely says anything and he managed to beat every single republican candidate in the primary. So this just speaks to in many ways. The complete decaying weakness of both of our major political parties which from my perspective is a very healthy thing for a free country. Now most people would say the collapse in support for not just political parties but for basically every public institution is terrible. It shows you that. The country's falling apart i myself a little worried about it although for some institutions i think bye-bye don't let the door on the way out. But but you're saying from your perspective the collapse of of trust these institutions is a wonderful thing. Yeah i don't think things like the ivy league and the state are redeemable The new york times elements like that. I think what conservatives failed to appreciate is that these institutions have been this way for a very long time There's an argument in conservative. circles that hollywood's been taken over by the liberals but the same time conservative. Do appreciate that. Ronald reagan was president a screen actors guild and as president screen actors guild and previously. He was very concerned by the depths of literal communism not just communism stalinism Within hollywood so at what point wasn't hollywood of venue of the very hard left in the twenties when they had they didn't have talkies. Well yes i guess. If you can't talk you can't spread leftist ideas. But i mean woodrow wilson. Another great example. He was a college professor. The first college professor became president he was president in nineteen twelve and he was advocating things. Far the left of what even bernie sanders with advocate for today so i think conservatives by and large are supposed to learn the lessons from history but unfortunately that seems to not be the case very often and this is why. It's a big reason for optimism. The future woodrow. Wilson is a far more to various fo far more talented individual farmer. Charismatic than what amc. I mean there's just no comparison opinion but there was this sense among the old right. You know. I mean these terms old writing new right. They change every twenty years because you people and older but but you know of of what we would call the old and the fifties. They really were concerned with getting rid of the new deal. They were fighting against fdr. They were fighting against wilson them and then that just kind of went away over the ensuing decades the conservatives just gave up they kind of made their peace with the new deal in some ways they adopted. We'll sonian view at least a foreign policy and so You know that that to me speaks to the absolute entrenchment of of these sort of leftist progressive policies. You think though maybe they're not so entrenched maybe we can. We cannot end them. Oh they are insurance but let let's talk exactly what. Talk nineteen fifties. You have the the nomination was between dwight. Eisenhower who no one knew what his political resume was at all both the democrats and republicans tried to recruit us a great war hero and the republicans had mr republican robert. Taft to was a conservative republican tap. Got his ass added to him. Marley because of liberal republicans like new york state governor. Thomas dewey Who ran against fdr twice. Was romney republican before the term existed. They later called rockefeller republicans. So i think this idea that The republican party is has historically been venue for a shrinking state is really kind of an historical fairytale along the lines of the sixty ninety and project. When push comes to shove they've never really cut budgets at all The other other example to that was nineteen sixty. Four with barry goldwater force. Who's a great conservative hero. And he got his hands to him in that election. Which of course percents The reagan election in nineteen eighty but the relationship between conserved ideas or a limited government ideas and the republican parties is far more nuanced than i think. A lot of people appreciate true and actually going back all the way to the founding of the republican party. Let's abraham lincoln ran on tariffs. I mean the the party was anti-slavery pro protectionism. So that's not exactly a a small government a policy and you know even even after i don't think anyone would call abraham lincoln small government sort of president the guy's suspended habeas corpus. You know rightly. I think but still he. He did it and so yes. The republican party has not always had the small government ideology and very rarely has expressed it even in the twentieth century. So then where do we go from here. If the if the twentieth century conservatism was basically flop with a few nice moments during the reagan and trump administration trump. I guess being the twenty first century. What's the future look like because you you have hope whereas i'm a little Little skeptical you know. I think conservatives are basically diabetics who are trying to choose between coke and pepsi and wondering why their fee get to keep getting cut off at a certain you have to realize that if you can't vote yourself free and mitch. Mcconnell will always be a lot closer to hillary clinton he will be to you and your values so to stop looking toward washington for answers and also to start looking to wear. The toxicity starts if you're fighting in washington by that point is the fourth quarter..

"You see that Prayer in public schools now absolutely not permitted you see the bible in public schools absolutely not permitted and the arguments that were made at the time. We're all about the first amendment there you can't. There has to be a firm separation between church and state. first of all. I encourage you. I beg you plead with you. Find me that phrase in the constitution won't be able to do it. No such as exists acting as you know my i have to interject. Because it's it's one of the great moments in american history that gets so perverted. It's from jefferson's letter to the church. At danbury and the separation was the church was the state from the church not the church from the state. I know you know that it drives me. Nuts that has been so twisted and contorted it. Of course it's so important to remember the context there. It's also important to remember that. At the time that the establishment clause was was ratified and there were many not many but there were a number of states in the country that had established churches. So yes you're protecting the church from the state you're also protecting the individual states from the federal government but that that has become completely misinterpreted in in the way the history is taught in the country. so yes obviously. There's going to be some religious basis for the country now. I'm not saying that we're going to have the pope. Land that at ellis island and take over the country. But i am saying all political regimes have some ideas that go along with them. For instance our country says we hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That is a religious idea and that religious idea undergirds the country and and what what the left did and the radical atheist did in the twentieth century is. They went in and they said no. You can't you can't have that but it only cuts one way. Look at the free speech movement in berkeley. You had radicals in the nineteen sixties. Say in the name of free speech. We need to get rid of all. Traditional standards of speech and behavior now is berkeley the free speech campus in the country. Not even close. It actually has has some of the greatest censorship in the entire country. So i think it was always an excuse. I think this argument of religious freedom or freedom of speech. I think that was a slogan that was promoted by the left. I don't think they actually gave a damn about the free speech or religious tradition in america. And i think they just wanted to knock down the traditional the traditional standards and unfortunately so many people on the right of fallen for it and very often we pair at their rhetoric. I've just over a minute. Michael knowles is. The author of the book is speechless controlling words controlling minds. What do you hope not the politicians and elected officials. What do you hope. The reader who buys reads in embraces. This takes away from this in. Does i hope that the reader understands the history of political correctness up until now. I don't think there was a real popular history explaining what this thing actually is. And i hope it gives readers the confidence and the courage to recognize that. There's nothing un-american about having standards there's there's actually nothing new about cancelled culture you know in the nineteen fifties you get cancelled for being a communist. Today you get cancelled for not being on. The fact of being canceled hasn't change..

"We do not possess a moral conscience and what that means is we do. Not because that's the capacity for self government. We actually need to be able to say things are good. Some things are bad. some things true. Some things are false. Something's or write. Some things are wrong and conservatives have really been afraid to do that. They haven't had the courage to do that. Over the past fifteen twenty years. We've made a lot procedural arguments a lot of abstract arguments about free speech but the plain fact is that free speech in the abstract does not mean anything to people who have nothing to say well and we've grown very comfortable discerning between we don't have to have consistency to the point that it self-defeating we can say you can't drink if you're under twenty one but at twenty one. You can have that decision. You can't these activities. If you're under an age you make the point in more legalistic. Since the first amendment does not require a value neutral public square our conservative former conservative leaders thinkers writers have seemingly given up. And i think that's the point you're making is that they're saying well if if the kids have to be exposed to a grown man's penis in the school in order for us not to have our our churches shut down. Then we're for it well. No we don't have to go that far. That's not intellectually consistent and it's not good and by the way i don't think it's value neutral either. You know the premise of these arguments. Is that somehow. Secular liberalism is totally neutral. It's an even playing field for the left and the right. There's nothing neutral about it. We have to make a distinction. If bruce jenner is a man then he's not allowed into the ladies room. If bruce jenner is a woman then he is allowed into the ladies room. We have to decide and whatever we decide. That's going to exclude other options. Even when you think about the way the schools are run. There's one book. There was one book that you are not allowed to teach in schools. it's not even candy. You can teach him. It's not robin de ngelo. You can teach her. It's it's not mine. come for goodness sakes. it's the bible. You're not allowed to teach the bible in schools. Why because the supreme court decided in the twentieth century that it was unconstitutional to teach the bible in schools where they discovered that constitutional prohibition no one has any idea probably written in invisible ink beneath the emanations. And the number is in the fictional right to abortion. But think about how crazy that is the single. Even if you're an atheist or agnostic the single most important book in the history of our civilization. you can't even understand the other works of literature and history without understanding this book. You are not permitted to teach that in schools doesn't sound very neutral to me folks. It seems like we were at a distinct disadvantage. I think we need to assert political power to to take some some of that ground back. You talk in the book about the first amendment and what it does and doesn't require in how we've seen this contortions to get to the conclusions One of the things you talk about is how the atheist got the warren court to rule their way. How did that happen well. This happened around around this time..

"In marx's lifetime it turns out the oppressed masses in didn't care about all of those wonderful ideas that karl so the later intellectual heirs of mark's people like antonio graham sheet people like the funk for at school critical theorists people hurt mike urban makusa and down the line. They recognized that in order for a revolution to succeed. You need to grab the common sense. You need to attain hegemony to wage a war of position rather than a war of maneuver where you take Positions of influence within the society. And then you gradually infiltrate the institutions. And then you wield that power. And i think we're now at the stage where they're wielding the power. I think really in order to come back this scourge which which threatens the very hard of our civilization. i think we need to take these leftist theorists seriously. I i think we need to recognize. They actually probably know more about free speech and censorship than we on the right. Do no matter how much we flatter ourselves. And that's why they've been so effective wielding speech to attain political power. And maybe we can learn a thing or true and try to do that ourselves. Michael let me hold you there. The book is speechless. Controlling words controlling minds. he's michael knowles. We will continue our conversation. He doesn't just point out the problems as many people do. He has strategies for how we solve. This how we win coming up. Michael knowles is our guest. The new book is a bestseller already. It's just hit the stores or online wherever you buy your books. Speechless controlling words controlling minds. You do more than just pointing out. How the use of words political correctness is allowing the left to win. You offer strategies for what we can do differently because republicans are in many cases. Getting it all wrong. What are some of those strategies. I think what republicans need to do what conservatives need to do is articulate a standard a an actual substantive political vision. I saw this most notably during a debate that cropped up on the right some months ago where there was a prominent might say former conservative. I think now he's he's pretty solidly liberal. They still call themselves. Certain you gotta commentator who defended drag queens story our who said that drag queen story our quote. This is actually this. is david french. I was trying to be nice and not nathan you know. He said though. I'll have to. I'll give him is toward french. That another vendor good grief anyway sorry. Yeah drag queen store. He lots nec said that That it was quote one of the blessings of liberty. And that that sound you hear by the way michael that is that is the sound of james madison rolling in his grave at that very thought so so some conservatives responded to this and said if that's blessing of liberty than than i ain't for it i'm against it and of course you know this would have been completely foreign to our founding fathers understanding of liberty but but to be charitable to david's argument. What he's what. He's basically saying that if we tell perverts that they can't work for little kids at the public library why then the left might tell us. We can go to church on sunday. To which i would respond by the way. They're already telling us that they've already for the past year or more told us in many parts of the country that you can't go to church so practically i think that's off the table but then but then even more broadly if if you are really telling me that we cannot discern between perverts generally for kids and a pastor preaching the gospel. If you're if you're telling you we can't tell the difference then that means that we do not possess faculties where he's it means..

"But i don't think it's just the left's fault i think we have in many ways. Let them do that. And this is largely. Because we've misunderstood what political correctness is we tend to think political correctness goes back about thirty years or so to the eighties or the nineties. I think it actually goes back about one hundred years as i argue speechless but we also tend to think that political correctness. Is this battle between free speech on the one hand and censorship on the other. And i don't really think that's what it is. I think it's more. I competing battle of standards. And you've got the traditional standards that we conservatives would depend and you've got the anti standard of the left and so it leaves this track that we've continued to fall for and it's why the harder we push back against political correctness. The more ground we lose the trap is that i'd away that conservatives react to political correctness actually ends up advancing pc so you you've obviously got the squish is they. Just give give into the new jargon the new standards that use whatever. The new crazy words are and so that obviously advances pc but then even more stalwart conservatives who say i'm never giving into your new wo- crazy standard very often. They will ground their their argument on. Say free speech absolutism. They'll grounded on the idea that we shouldn't have standards at all. You should be able to say whatever you want. Do whatever you want. And ironically that advances political correctness too because all political correctness sets out to do is to destroy traditional standards. So i think that we need a third option. I think we need a new strategy. Because whatever we've been doing for thirty years manifestly has not been working well and would you trace that because you say one hundred years that lines up nicely with with wilson. Just after roosevelt and progressivism. Is that where you see this coming from. Well you certainly see it. With wilson wilson. I think rights probably the best description of progressivism that i'd ever read in his essay. What is progress. He says the constitution's outdated. That was that was developed. During the age of isaac newton when we thought we had six laws and the permanent nature to the universe but now we live in the age of darwin and because we're in the age of darwin. Everything's involving nothing's fixed nothing stable and so we need to basically take away all the constitutional protections. Give all the political power to a bunch of egghead elites and not let the people have any say over their government that was a major transformation and it was accompanied by a transformation in the way that the radicals approached politics. You know karl marx in a letter to arnold ruge called for the ruthless criticism of all that exists and from from this we get things like critical theory now. Critical race theory is very much in the news. But the the marsin revolution did not did not happen..

"He does a radio show. He's at the daily wire he's basically a man about town Modern day women buckley. If you will. He's written a number one national bestseller entitled speechless controlling words controlling minds and it came out just a little over a week ago. Well first of all we see critical race theory in the good work chris. Rufo's doing there and lots of parents across the country. Michael speaking out at at At school board meetings. We see tucker carlson revealing that. He's been spied on. Where do you even begin to to to start the conversation on controlling words and controlling minds. Why write this book. It seems to me that the issue of free speech is the most important issue facing our country right now. I think it's more important than immigration. I think it's more important than foreign trade or taxes or wars or anything like that. If you can control speech you will control politics because as good old uncle aristotle tells us speeches politics and politics is speech. Especially especially in a self-governing republic such as ours where we use words to persuade one another deliberate and set our our national policy at least in theory. And you've hit on it. There are two kinds of speech. Control that that are going on right now. There is the overt censorship. You mentioned tucker the nsa spying on tucker carlson. You've got government entities you've got corporate entities censoring even the duly elected sitting president of the united states on january seventh and january as a people who can get in trouble lose their jobs if they stay basic facts about nature men or not women that sort of thing but then there's also a pre censorship and i think this is even more insidious this is the way the left manipulates language to win debates before they ever even have to have the debates. I think this is why the left is so focused on the pronouns. Right now. I think that you can be compelled to refer to bruce jenner as she and her if the left can force you to deny the plane. Reality is right before your very eyes. They can get you to say anything..

Controlling words controlling minds by michael knowles is available for preorder. Also i got my tim foyle. Guerrillas moles book speechless that's beautiful. What does that make you feel inside. That is a really really beautiful thing. Because i'm glad that everyone is in on this. The real motivation to write this book. Some people said it's because i want to change the way that the conservative movement talks about free speech. Some have said it's because i want to win back the culture in the country. Yes sure you're really. It's about the absolute vindictiveness. The pure vitriol. I have four the new york times. Just really wanna hit that list. I want to stick it right in there.

Collectibles dot com backslash speechless and for just one small payment. You can help feed a little italian boy with end and feed his ego in helping to tarnish the new york times list. You can put that anywhere by the way. That's totally your name so reading some more questions here. We've got one this one right here from raymond and cussing south carolina. Raymond asks what is one thing that americans are not doing that. They should be doing to stop this takeover of words in speech. God bless mr knowles. What do you think of raymond you. Now we were speaking of presidents earlier. I hope that president trump lives a good long life. I hope that he has many more years on this earth. He's got good genes. you know. He's very well preserved by diet coke and delicious american food however when the time eventually comes as it must come for all of us. I hope that he donates his body to science and his spine to the gop because conservatives don't have courage on this issue. I mean even at the at the moments when conservatives have some moral clarity they say you know actually drag story. Our is not so great. Maybe having perverts to work for toddlers at like second grade classrooms maybe not the best thing in the world. but then they'll say expose. But i could never impose my views on my crazy view that it's not good for perverts to jiggle around for for two year olds. We need to be able to do that. All regimes of speech all self governments need to make moral decisions about how we're gonna live how we're gonna get along together. Every society has taboos every society has standards. And what we need to be able to do is articulate a real standard substantive vision of politics. We need to put that out there. We need to be willing to embrace it and enforce it in the nineteen fifty s. You could get cancelled for being a communist today. You cancelled for not being a communist. I think we need to go back to the more stable and serious standard. I see a new hat here. It says make cancelling communists great again. Yes i can't get behind that for sure all right so the next question here. Sarah and alfred georgia asks. Michael wrote a first book about reasonable for democrats with zero words. How different was it writing a book. That actually had words. Will you know that first book. No one gave me credit. I had been researching that book for about twenty seven years at that point and you know everyone says that there were no words in the book. There were words in that book. There was an extensive billion agree at the back of reasons to vote for democrats. It was the only words in the entire book here. I had to do a lot of research. But then i had to do the second step which was to write and i will tell you it was it was a little bit of a tricky process. Because i wanted to write a real book. I'm not getting on my high horse. Okay i'm not trying to say that this is You know the greatest work of political philosophy in the last several decades would never say that the greatest work of. I'm not saying that. What i'm saying is i wanted to write a serious substantive work that was offering different perspective. Because i never want to do this again. It's very very tiring to write a book. So i want to get it all out here now and then we're done. That actually is perfect because colton from minneapolis asked what was the hardest thing of writing this book. This gives you a chance to talk about the hardship. You had to go through. I wrote this. I had a lot of mrs for colton new. Go thank you very much. The the hardest thing about writing this book. I don't even know where to sign up there. We go the hardest thing about writing. This book was actually after it was written. I enjoyed enjoyed the research. It was cool. I kind of changed my mind on some things when i did it. I enjoyed right. I do enjoy writing. I go slowly. But i enjoyed the work of it. But the edit and the edit and the fight and the battle and i. I'm so miserable to work with if you are in editor. I'm just being. I'm so miserable to work with. Because i at labor i mean you know this you are an editor might here. At the daily wire. I labor over every comma every little dash in the book. Oh it's so. I would throw me out of a window if i go to so we did that. We had some debates over everything the cover art every inch of this book has been argued over and thought over and hopefully will totally persuade conservatives to Get along with my way of thinking. I will point out to your formidable foe when it comes to the final editing process. You might ask. Hey mike what about suggestion this sentence here. Yeah man stances grounds says. Here's my argument for why that sentences should not be changed. You know what i actually. This is telling tales out of school. But i really lovely editor at really talented editor at at and she sent me back thoughtful edits. And we're talking. You know we're talking comments here talking about really expensive stuff. I wrote about three hundred words per page in the comments section of why i wouldn't change the this book and it is a whole new book that actually there was this moment of crisis when i was turning in my edit i had an old version of of the word processor most of it got deleted but i felt it was actually good. I think i think she would have probably come to my house and strangled me. I sent in the original returns on it. I would have gone to your husband. Alan strangled you and editing process. If i knew where you live or smart to not do that next question here actually comes from lianca in huron spain. Wow hey here we go. Mr knowles is known for two things. A great talk show about politics and a blink book he authored. How has the experience been changing from the talking format to the written format. This one is for lianca. Will you know.

And how i kind of wanted to label myself. Yeah i'm one hundred percent. Gay one hundred percent fab i want i so remember. Questioning yourself thinking oh. I'm not quite siamese everyone else in my class. Oh yeah. I think i obviously growing up in maine and growing up in sport. I've spent half my time wearing trump's around post sides. And i think from a young age probably about batting voting. I knew i was different. And i knew that. I did have phelan's tools guys but that very early age because of being around poolside. All the time. I didn't want to be seen different. I didn't want to be that anomaly. In because obviously there's not really many will if any gays or out smit's instrument at the minute. That still sermon spoke saints a bit of last frontier in terms of coming out. Doesn't it really not one hundred percent. Because you've got to be macho man you've got to compete against so you don't want to be seen as weak sesame. I really suppressed so many feelings for so long. Just because i didn't want to talk about it. I didn't want to address. It just wanted my whole acres to be on in so let's establish where you were air. This was whereabouts. We growing up ken. Yeah grew up in just outside of london and in the club while i change echinacea in club which is really nice club quite successful incident and there was lots of people that i could look up to in which was great. But yeah none as you be tade no was straight very heterosexual mindset. I must there any bullying use of homophobic language. Anything schooled at school it away but yeah it wasn't really to do with my sexuality all near the kind of scam game. I think it was just because i was very different very bubbly person or very outgoing person than i think just by very different it all kinds shapes and phones kids always pick up on the other somehow i one hundred percent but the billion did stock never changed over it quiet and reserved thing after the berlin. But you know definitely got my mojo back and just on now. Only who i am which is amazing. <hes> so guess. You grew up in a really strict environment in the sense that you've got be so disciplined to be a swimmer at your level. Having you say you didn't probably have time for leads. Parties or smoking behind. The bike sheds or stuff that most teenagers do one hundred percent. I think swimming is dedicated to nine times a week. You know anything kaos just kind of gets pushed aside so i think because everything was pushed away knowing everybody got time to explore mistakes reality or find out why men you know any failures had never explode them. It will really suppressed the down his knee. So did you suppress it enough. That you went through the motions have girlfriends or did he just sort of block out that part of your life into site. It's may end. The poll not sets. Yeah i never had girlfriends never really spoke about that part of my life. I think you know. When you're in samantha. Me one hundred percent commit to me and that was kind of my release like everything but i had a woman because they didn't have time for anything else which you know in reality. I think i did.

About seven months ago, a new string platform debuted called qube or qb or something like that movie and we talked about it when it first came out al.. It's great concept because there is something there for short form media like short form videos there's something there. They just didn't execute it properly. They don't need to take a full episode of something and chopping in the ten minutes or at the right time because it was perfect for like people on the go known was on the Gopher Right. They put this thing out like a week before the whole world shut down. So if there was nothing that was must see on this platform except for Reno Nine, one one which I just signed up.

That thing called the pause button? Yeah. This Dick Qube have that. No they did not have the posit. Here's what any me I wouldn't know. I'm sure they added on Reno nine one one, it was cool because of like they're watching somebody's cell phone footage what you're watching them watching the cell phone footage, the phone would vibe the op-ed vibrate would tell you the change your orientation. And you would and you could see the cellphone video they're watching but then it makes it weird because like am I missing what they're doing watching the video okay.

Go some fascinating articles to share with you some insights how it's being misunderstood misrepresented. And some scary. France event was actually happening with some people in this movement, but also I wanNA share with you a new report that has been put together and redistributed around government. You can guarantee and bet your bottom dollar has been seen by FBI CIA all the other.

Okay with that said. Let's start off by talking about how wikipedia rival places actually define the Goo Balu, Balu of Sam. Switching this rams to try and get wider range, because as you'll find out flight book, itself is actually made changes. In June. That's though this month twenty, twenty, two, how they're gonNA portray, and what they're going to cut back on on their network and anybody that mentions the term Goo Balu. Will be punished came so I'm hence the reason that I'm disquieting that in some fashion, perhaps and hopefully so according to wikipedia the Google movement quote endurance to which often referred to as Gu blue boys will do Balu be is is a loosely organized American. Far right extremist movement now this seems to be the common theme wherever you see this mentioned in mainstream media. This is a group of far-right extremists. They are basically neo Nazis and they. They're the worst thing in the world. Basically terrorists that seems to be how it's being portrayed. Not why I've experienced I would claim myself to be a not what I've seen from. Talking about this, and from the many many videos and images and live streams, I've seen, but apparently that said that's how it's being portrayed, so remember some things tyrants dues they divide and conquer, they try and get infighting amongst ourselves, and they try and disseminate information. This is basically a war against the rulers and this move people the many K.. We all the many bay are the. The few that dig whatever they can do to keep his down to surveillance to instigate brutality against us to steal our money through taxation. None of this is disputable. None of this is an extremist view. It's just fact K now. They're going to put it in a different spin in the opposite going to do. They can't alienate those individuals to paint individuals in a certain lie. and put out in mainstream media so that people at all. No I don't want to be associated with Ou- I've seen those guys where those Hawaiian shirts that the bad guys. That's what they won't. Now according to the verge. FACEBOOK!

Balu the terminology what they call the militias fear. And we're going to look at their understanding of it, and it's way way off. Okay, what they're not realizing is that people are pissed off K. large swathes of the population right now. There are obviously worried. You'll see that moment when we get into this.

It's noise, a group of people that have had enough. You've pushed his enough. You've pushed into a corner.

"A huge impediment and a huge detriment to our society there beginning I think to see the effects of that as the entirety of Hollywood has been taken down over me too. As the as the personalization and nastiness of politics. I is open. There is that they are not immune to it. But if we don't recover it. We're not going to have a liberal society left. All right. This is the final question. Okay. We've made it to the end of Michael Moses conversation guys. Thank you so much for hanging in there with us. And thank you to our subscribers who helped put cook co Fe, and our cups. That's what all these great questions. Jeffrey wants to know, why do you think a majority of Holly? He would is on the left because it'll work because they're never working. That's why tell as a former working actor even working actors aren't working most of the time and as actor as a period, I mean, they're loafing around. And yes, I've a lot of friends in the arts in New York and L A a lot of actors writers and directors and they access unemployment they go on the dole, and they refer to welfare as the federal arts subsidy on ironically, I kid you not it. I don't blame them. I have so much respect for actors. I love the craft of acting and is a hard tough awful life. You are constantly going out into auditioning. Your yob is to audition your job is to prepare material. And you're being rejected ninety percent of the time. If you're good, I mean, if you were a really good actor, you're only being rejected ninety percent of the time. Most people are being rejected ninety eight percent of the time, and that's very hard. But what it means is that through most of your day. You're just kind of going around you're working on a script. You're working on your monologue. Your. Driving? You're sitting in an audition room. You're you're even when you're on set, even when you book a movie or a TV show, you're just sitting around doing nothing. And I so on the one hand this gives people very fanciful ideas, and very bizarre sense of our society and economy works, but also it it is a fantasy. You're living in a fantasy the work at self is a fantasy and the process of getting to the work as a fantasy and leftism is a fantasy to it is a fantasy economically politically and spiritually, and so it's very difficult to resist at there are a handful of conservatives in Hollywood, I know every single one of them we all know each other because they're so under siege. And I do find broadly speaking, the conservative people in show business or the smartest or at least the best informed. The most rational, the most balanced, the most even keeled when I was in a very a spell won't say his name, but a very well-known acting studio legendary acting teacher and when he asked when? In addition to me to come in. He said, do you think you're too smart to be an actor? This was a very nice compliment. You know, go onto would school, but he meant it seriously because actress have to be gullible fools and leftists due to. That's a wrap. That was the final question. Good final question. And thank you again to our amazing subscribers. Thanks for joining us, everyone and don't forget that. If you wanna be a part of next month conversation, it's going to be taking place on Tuesday, December eighteenth at five thirty pm eastern, two thirty PM Pacific, featuring our very own Ben Shapiro and only subscribers can ask the questions.

"Even now, president still pay lip service to Christianity, even though we've had many post now, I think to post restraint presidents Barack Obama of didn't seem to be terribly Christian. I think he said he was Christian. But he also drew on the face of all religions, he criticized Christians for the crew Salines their gun image and clinging to guns and religion. Brooke Obama strikes me as the spiritual, but not religious type, you know, very interested in himself, but not too concerned about the nature of metaphysics and the divine, and obviously Donald Trump is a thrice-married lapsed Presbyterian. But he does at least that one. He's excellent four Christians and for pushing of the things that Christians want, and he does pay lip service to it as well. We may be in a post Christian period, we may have the the fast religious groups in the United States or the nuns, the religiously unaffiliated, the spiritual but not religious. So we may get to a point where we're electing practical atheists or practical acne. Sticks. But if we were at the point and some person might call himself Muslim who really is a practical atheist. We ought to the point the America where we had a serious practicing Muslim elected president. I just suspect that the culture of the country would be so so different. We wouldn't recognize it when it could potentially be. I mean, you see studies. How so many millennials are unchurched? Yes. No. I think I mean, I think perhaps it's it's just as likely we get a Muslim president as a practicing Christian presence in the future. I'm not. I'm really not discouraging Muslims. I'm just saying it seems that the culture is trending in an atheistic direction and were probably going to see that reflected in our politicians. All right. Sam has a very important question. He wants to know Michael white has been hate you. What have you done to incur the most terrible wrath of our future? President. I think I received the applause of our current president. I think that was part of it the the real issue, and I say this as a as a bestselling off, Ben. And I you know, he, and I are bestselling authors and. Then you have how many books I will. I how many books have I sold as the real question. Yeah. I of Ben made this point when I became a bestselling one that he was little upset because he has written a dozen books or something ally. And and but I sold more copies of not a book. Then he sold of all of his books with words, and this is very difficult. You know, obviously among us bestselling authors. There is always a little bit professionally where you go back and forth, you bounce ideas off one another. But I've tried to teach Ben my secrets which is to stop doing all that research. Okay. For for one stop putting all those hours in. I mean, the guy works like a dog. He's got two kids. He's running multiple shows stop doing and his wife's a doctor. 'cause I heard his wife's a doctor in our. That's gotta be trying and to stop putting all those words in the book's. He hasn't taken my advice. Once he takes my advice. He's gonna be so happy. He's not going to be angry at anybody the world. But I think he's gonna keep putting words in them. He should right. A comprehensive guide to writing by Michael known. That's what it'd be more book for Michael Knowles and his by Ben Shapiro. But this point confide that's going to be might. It's like Strunk and white.

Wore off a I'm sorry better off or worse off with never Nancy as the speaker of the house for Democrats or would Republicans be better if they found someone else to be the democratic leader, this is a confusing? What you phrased it? Because when I think of never Nancy, I think of Alexandria, Casio quartet, I sixteen congressman that were against her of others ANSI being the speaker. We are way better off with Nancy Pelosi is the speaker. She is superb speaker for Republicans, we have spent zillions of dollars vilifying this woman. Not that we really needed to. She's done a good job of it herself. She's a she's a week adversary. I mean, she's a she's a good adversary. But she's a weakened leader as she doesn't have a ton of support within her own party..

Out with a steel pipe was the only time he's ever knocked out and breaking every vertebra in his neck and his huge threshold for pain inside of you is brought to you by policy genius.
