Y you think it resonated so viral. Yeah i mean. I think with a lot of journalists. You know. I don't know if i'd consider by salvage journalists but a lot of times. You had just have a confluence of information. That kind of happens at once. You're so reading the tea leaves. You're looking at what's going on. You're asking the right questions right time and in my case i noticed that. Ao see in interviews. Would you know she was. She obviously. Didn't know what she was talking about. She had no idea anything about politics and yet occasionally she would come out with some historical racial injustice. Like redlining. something. I hadn't heard of before she brought it up and so she'd go and talk about these minute details and like throw out names of people historically that. I never heard the names of that. Were in her mind civil rights heroes or something like that. And i'm thinking and how the hell does she know these minute. Details about american history and yet when asked about her opinion on something like the israeli palestine conflict. What the hell. She's talking about so obviously she's being coached right. Obviously there's people who know what they're talking about and saying you know say they say they say this an interview and presumably also telling her how to vote and you know how to you know giving her legislation to get past that and so i started looking into it.

Lindsey Graham Defends Horseback Border Patrol Agents, Calls for 'Incompetent' Mayorkas to Resign

"You know they put. They put fences around capital but the borders wide open to the tune of two million criminal immigrants to this invasion thus far and as democrats report from the border but twenty five percent of them have the wuhan and they're not tested and they're just laughing at you knuckleheads putting on your man. Who put your mask ron. I'm going to the supermarket really a. Why don't you pretend the supermarkets the emmys or barack hussein's party or the border senator. Lindsey graham was talking with show favourite martha mccallum yesterday about the disasters of this administration. Play that clip. Give me real quick quick. So all i can say is what biden has done is he surrendered the border to drug cartels cody's and human smugglers. He surrendered afghanistan to terrace. The taliban and al qaeda in a major terrorist attack is gonna come our way because between the combination of allowing afghanistan to fall back into terrorist hands and have a completely open and broken border here in the united states is just a matter of time that the terrorists come through that border to kill a bunch of us. And here's what. I want to say to the american people. The man on horseback is there to protect your family. The people rushing our border have put us all under siege. And i think the most inhumane things going on right now in america is that the men and women of the border patrol of been completely abandoned. Them god's scapegoat and treated like dirt by elected officials in the democratic party and this administration. So i'm not unhappy. I am pissed secretary. Marcus needs to resign. He's completely incompetent. The border is not closed. It has been surrendered. A man senator. Lindsey graham and bali needs if if if the democrats have the lord and the constitution and the love of america may orcas would be out. He's not incompetent. He's doing what he's being ordered to do.

Author Sabrina Strings on the Racial Origins of Fat Phobia

"To the podcast. Sabrina thank you on so excited to have you so tell us about how you started to explore issues of body image and wait specifically for women of color while this is actually almost like a family legacy for me. My grandmother was born in rural georgia during the late nineteen thirties and so she was growing up the jim crow era and lived in a racially segregated community as part of the great migration in nineteen sixty. She traveled west and at that time for the first time in her life she lived and worked around white women and she was amazed by the number of white women diets. Seems like what is this. You know sort of like a typical black grandmother fashioned. By the time. I came of age in the one thousand nine hundred ninety s. When i was in high school she was still troubling over. This question like what is going on here. She would even ask me like why women dying to be thin. And i was like sixteen years old but it wasn't until about ten years later when i was working in a predominantly black community in san francisco baby hunters points. I met women of color who were hiv positive. And we're attaining an hiv medication adherence clinic where i was a researcher who refuse to take their medications for fear of gaining weight. And i thought oh. Wow you know this. What was clearly a phenomenon that was mostly about middle class white women in the nineteen sixties arguably even through the ninety s. Clearly by the early dots was something. That was impacting women of color as well so i wanted to be able to dig further into this question of why is it so important for women of all racial ethnic backgrounds at this point to feel like they need to discipline themselves and maintain a particular.

"strang" Discussed on The Current

"Kind of act. Sure protests voice your opinion but do it in a respectful way in a place that is kind and respectful to others can ask you just a bit the broader system We're here in nova scotia and we're heading to muscovite harbor to talk to people about the impossibility in many ways of finding a family physician finding primary care at the beginning of that healthcare system and this is put huge strain on the larger system. Not going to draw you into politics. But the government flipped in many people's eyes because of the concerns that people had around the state of health care in this province. How large are the cracks in the system here. I like nova scotia like other provinces. Our healthcare system is under very much under stress where we're at full capacity in her hospital even without cova we do have difficulties around access To care but they're complex problems. We need understanding. you know. there's no simple solution and people who are looking for a simple answer. It's not there and i'm public health guy. I always say well we need to do a better job of keeping healthy people healthy in the first place. If all we do is try to meet the demand for care we will never ever get out in front of that. We have to invest in. And it's things like affordable housing Help early early years experience for for children addressing race racism and all the impacts of that those are fundamental to actually creating a healthier society which then allows us to actually have created an affordable public health care system. It's not just about how get care tomorrow. Yes i get that we need to deal with that but we need to think longer term and bigger picture on the solutions. So no matter who i mean. This time. Next week fingers crossed. There will be a government if all the votes are counted and that could be a long process as well but no matter who forms that go government. What do you think they're priority needs to be in terms of thinking about preserving enhancing fixing strengthening the public healthcare system that so many people in this country hold dear that there's going to be a lot of pressure about the the level of federal investments. But i think that and you get into the debate about you know constantly what's healthcare. I think there's a space for the federal government to articulate. What i talked about that all the things that. What's the federal government's role in in in dealing with an inequities Dealing with trying to solve the affordable housing crisis so they can lead in kind of many social policy areas which have very direct and and impacts on on on the health and communities which then allows us to healthier people. Healthy communities gives us the space to say. How do we then create a healthcare system. That is publicly. funded and affordable. It's been a busy eighteen months. What's one thing that you have learned over. The course of this pandemic i've learnt The and dedication of my colleagues in healthcare. I've experienced unheard of so many stories about kindness and compassion. Which is i use. The those are my three cs about carrying community and common sense. But i've really pushed at. How people have responded in so many ways positive ways about looking out for each other as we get through the difficult time in the pandemic and that that will stay with me. We'll let you get back to fighting the pandemic. I really appreciate you taking some time to talk to us this morning. Thank you thank you very much. It's a pleasure trip to musket gas. It's going to be on the eastern shore. September nova scotia. September into the middle of october is like the is the best time. It's usually like this but it's not super high.

What It Means to Understand Your Power

"To recap last week. I talked about the first step in having resilience. Which is this ability to bounce back from hardship to stand back up and go again. What does it mean to be resilient and to be strong and to keep going last week. I talked about the idea that for me. I think the first step is making peace with what is and the way that we make. Peace is through our mindset and the way that we look at things so that's what last week's episode was about. Go dig in and start there but assuming you've already consumed that one this week. I wanna talk about power. I wanna to talk about your personal power from a few different perspectives. Because resilient really is about string and nobody comes into this world resilient you come into this world completely dependent on other people to keep you alive in fact my friend. Tom and i were just talking about this. And it was in tuesday's episodes if you didn't listen to my interview with tom bill. You go check this out. He talks about this idea that humans are the only animal that come into the world with just zero skills and ability to keep themselves alive. Think about a horse horse comes into the world and twenty minutes later. It's walking we come into the world and we can't do anything and if you're designed in such a way we have to presuppose that there's a reason for that yes. We are much more complex than we can think and we can speak and we can do things that animals can't do and so it's easy to think that it takes longer to evolve and become functioning human beings because we have more things to evolve but you could also look at it another way and ask if there's something more at play than just the facts that your wiring more complex maybe what's at play is the reminder that we always have the ability to grow and evolve.

The First Appearance of the Comic Strip "Blondie"

"Day was monday. September eighth nineteen thirty. A new comic strip appeared in american newspapers introducing readers to blondie buca duke better known today as blondie bump stead or just plain. Blondie although personally. I would never give up a maiden name as good as boop boop bum. Stead is such a downgrade the strips creator m b. chick young had dreamed of being a cartoonist since childhood his nineteen nineteen high school yearbook contained. Some of his earliest drawings which were signed with his nickname chicken from which he would later derive his pen name. Before the blondie strip debuted in nineteen thirty young had tried to launch several female driven comics with little success. One reason for the failure of such titles as beautiful babb and dumb. Dora was young's penchant for portraying his female leads as insipid and flighty. He initially followed the same chauvinist pattern for blondie perpetuating the tire dumb blonde stereotype. In the early strips gradually young was able to rein. In this impulse and blonde. He began to appear just as smart as the string of boyfriends vying for her affections one. Such suitor was the playboy. Dag would bump stead. Despite the strips title. Many readers are probably more familiar with blonde. Dis future husband. Who's bumbling antics tend to provide much of the comics humor but in the early days dag would was a far cry from his current incarnation as a sandwich loving working man instead he was originally portrayed as the son of a wealthy railroad tycoon. The comic strip struggled initially but once young decided to have dag would and blondie fall in love. His readership began to climb.

Steps to Avoid Injury When You Aren't Training for an Event

"So i to quote just love to run and not training for anything and we have similar mileage. Although my weekday runs about six miles in weekday want weekend ones or eight to ten. So the three things that i credit to keeping my injuries at bay is foam. Roll nearly every morning. I do dynamic drills post. Run that i kind of probably talk about far too much on this show and i strength train them two hours a week. I string train Twice a week for an hour so Yeah those are. That's what i do with that kind of mainframe of running to keep me. you know. Not limping down the stairs and away from any. Pt's so what are what are your thoughts. Do i mean. I think that's really smart right. I think foam rolling is awesome. Staying strong is the second stool second leg on that stool and and the third one is. You know making sure that you're properly warmed up and cooled down at the beginning of a run. So i think you've got it there. Sarah i mean i don't know if she has niggles like i would say that might just be her body just talking to her a little bit and i mean that doesn't necessarily mean that she needs to go faster. I mean we can talk about that in a second. But i mean other things that she can do to switch it up. That might that without going faster. Are things like maybe going on a trail. Run every once in a while. That would change up the muscles that you use and you know slightly call in more your stabilizing muscles which might actually just put those nichols away. She can cross train a little bit. I mean i know she likes to run a lot and i understand that but making sure that she you know she does get something that feels like. She shouldn't push maybe get on a bike or get in the pool or the elliptical. Something like that for a little break. Yeah i do have to say that the years all blend together. But they're definitely time where. I was running six days a week just because i liked it so much. Yeah yeah and that was when i would kind of limp. When i walked downstairs sometimes people who would see me. You know like walk up to them so that they can kind of see me coming. They'd be like oh something wrong. Why are you limping.

Violin or Fiddle, Whats the Difference?

"And I wanted to show a little bit of a difference between the fiddle playing and classical violin playing. A lot of people ask what's the difference? There's actually no difference in the instrument itself. It's the same instrument. It's more how you play it. So if you're playing a more traditional classical piece, you'll have this kind of more rounded sound with a lot of vibrato, which is where you kind of move your hand. See how I'm really kind of using a lot of movement here. Now when Marie takes the stage and she plays fiddle, it's gonna be a lot more of kind of this open string sound where I don't use as many fingers. You still have to use fingers, but you kind of have this more open sound. Also, there's a lot of this kind of long short short short long, short short pattern that really creates this more fiddle, folksy vibe. Okay. About that. Anyway, it's really fun. And for those of you who haven't tried it, and maybe have been more classically trained, yet give a little bit of a chance to do that long short term rhythm and maybe on two open strings. And that can go a long ways when you're playing whether with the band or playing solo. Hopefully you guys are learning a little bit about different genres here. And then if you are a fiddler originally and you're trying to learn classical, you're going to use less of those open strings instead of import more user fourth figure. And see how that gets a more covered sound in a certain sense. And just kind of a more rounded sound. So there's your little mini lesson today on the difference between classical playing and fiddle

"I have a lot of this products. And buy more. If i can figure out who i could give them to his gifts i. I wanted to support him as much as i can. But there's other ways that they cancel. It's economically this book and cancelled culture. It has to do with credit card processing. This is something that those of us who aren't in the banking or credit card industry don't know anything about but when you submit your credit card for payment they accepted or rejected it and then it goes into this way that the banks transfer money and they finally put it on your bill and you pay it but there. There are some of these places that have canceled conservative and christian organizations because they don't like the fact that they go against the woke feeling. That lgbt is okay. They stand for biblical values. They're not necessarily hateful. They're not pointing their guns at anyone. They are just saying what they believe and they're credit cards won't be processed is becoming a real problem and if people can control you like this. They're controlling your ability to buy and sell and for those of us who study any kind of bible prophecy at all. It sounds a lot like the beginning of the mark. the beast the anti christ. You know this is stuff. I never thought. I would see in my lifetime but you gotta believe that is building up towards something one world government. I mean i'm not a conspiracy theorist and maybe it'll happen generations from now but it sure looks like is building up to something and cancer. Culture is part of it. I hate the fact that i agree with that. I hate it. It's sickening to me but unfortunately if you're paying attention that's exactly what it looks like If you really are paying attention there are a lot of people who either. They're not paying attention or they can't bear the thought so they have to. They have to you know. Brush it off as conspiracy theory or exaggeration. I wish it were. But i have to be honest and say that One of the reasons. I wanted to talk to you about this book is because i feel like this is front and center in our lives. Here's the issue. Your book says gotten cancel. Culture stands strong before. It's too late if we don't stand strong now if we don't push-back now if we don't fight now we will go down this path that you and i have been talking about and so the question is will we stand up. Will we fight there. Many people listening right now. They're not fighting. They're not doing anything. Well hopefully my go caused him to wake up and people are speaking up. I think there is hope. I try to end the book with hope. We haven't lost yet but it's like leaning back in a chair you can lead back lean back and you can write it you know. Put it back on four legs if you want to but at some point you leave back too far you get a tipping point where it's impossible to put it down. You just fall backwards. That's the term tipping point came from. And we're getting pretty close to that tipping point. I'm afraid but we can't speak up. We can be strong and even Programs like this and everything you do. The as you said. Mike lindell was a hero. I think you're a hero to for all that you've done and you have really been attacked lightly and so bravo for standing strong yourself. Thank you i. we've just got about a minute left. But i i just want to say that i have my parents to thank because my parents. They really made me see. They grew up in in some cases. Living hell no food they. They saw the evil and so they made me understand. This is real. Because i haven't seen it in my lifetime. That's because i'm ridiculously blessed living in america but around the world most people know there is evil. There's a potential of for terrible terrible things. The question is will the people with the power with the freedom in this country. Will they wake up and fight now and again. That's the title of your book. gun cancel. Cultures stands strong before it's too late. We've got forty seconds. Do you think people will push back. I believe they're starting to and you're right. This is a wonderful country. Why do you think people are pouring over our southern borders if this is such a terrible racist country or whatever else the left says we are. It's a wonderful place. We're still the land of the free and the home of the brave. Well that's a beautiful way to end it. Folks book has gotten cancelled culture. Forward by mike lindell But the book is by stephen strang. Stephen it's just a joy to know You're in the fight with us. And i hope your book and this interview wakes people up. They need to wake up today. steven.

The forward has written by mike lindell who has become the most cancelled man alive. He still standing. He's a hero And i wanna ask you. You talked about. Kohl's canceling him bed bath and beyond canceling him. They said we don't like your politics. We don't like you speaking up. We don't care if you're right or wrong we don't like you. We disagree. Were shutting you down. That's where we are in america that that big tech and big stores corporations are going along with this. It really does feel like what happened in germany in the early thirties. They said if you don't play along you're out. That's what cancelled. Culture is the subtitle of your book garden. Cancel culture stand strong before it's too late talk about that. Stand strong before it's too late. Well christians as a group a rather passive generally. They're nice people go. Go along to get along. You know they hope it won't affect them. Some of us like me live in kind of a bubble. Most of the people in my life are christians. I recognize that a lot of this nonsense doesn't affect me but we cannot ignore it any longer. They're gonna come and get all of us sooner or later and you're right. Mike lindell is a hero. I don't know these been cancelled as much as donald trump has but the right up there together and he's like donald trump and that he doesn't seem to care you know he just seems to thrive on it and there's a very important and serious thing. When it comes to economics we talked about communism it you know at the final At the end of the day it's economics and his eight years them and they're starting to when people were cancelled they lose their job or they lose.

"Folks. I'm talking to the author of god and cancel culture. Stephen strang stephen We were talking earlier about vaccines and all these things. And it's it's a weird moment in america where you know i just always say i wanna be rational right. So there's some people who think the vaccine is a good idea. I think it's a horrible idea but we we can disagree but the point is we have people like lemmings saying we can't disagree shut up. Don't talk about that stuff. Those people are crazy Just get the vaccine. The vaccine for the and i think okay. Wait a second If i get the vaccine is there any downside potentially three years from now five years from now we don't really know probably not and i say okay so probably not. But you're not really sure. So i'm not gonna get it okay and people like no no you gotta get it. You can't eat at restaurants you can't go to college. You can't go to biolo- anything. Wow happened to americans thinking for themselves making their own decisions. Some people are trying to enforce a certain kind of thinking. Even if they're right they have no right to enforce thinking. That's basically what cancel culture is isn't it. It's it's use the culture in peer pressure to bully a group. You wanna go to restaurant. You want to walk around without a mask. You better do this. That's it's fundamentally un-american i mean for forget unchristian it's fundamentally un-american. I agree with you hundred percent. That's the point. I try to make it the book now. I live down in florida where things are relatively normal. And i don't personally face that kind of thing but and in the book i re i research everything. There's footnotes. I'm very careful what i'm going to tell you now is anecdotal a couple weeks ago. My wife and i went to a wedding or about sixty people. They only invited people who had had the vaccine. They made a couple of exceptions for my wife. And i had the antibodies since then twenty people of the sixty have come down with cove it at one table and he said say that again won t twenty people out of sixty now at our table. There were there was a couple. They were friends of ours. We talked about the fact they'd had the vaccine. They got covert my wife and high who have not been back if it had the antibodies on supposed to keep you from getting the design. What seen does that's right but you know someone said and again you don't know who to believe but someone said it should not be called a vaccine. It should be called a shot. It's not a back. See no no no. It is not a vaccine. So they're calling it a vaccine but it's not a vaccine. It is a shot. It's experimental ornate therapy. Here's here's the point. The people who got the vaccine then get the disease. But that's not the worst part. The worst part is now they can spread the disease so they're walking around vaccinated.

I'd like to Tell your listeners. About your story. I'm not sure how much you've talked about it. But you know how your mother came from east germany. Your father came from greece which came very very close to being communist. Dick your mother took you over there. When you're little kid you saw with your own eyes. What was you came home.

I think somebody wrote a book kind of lot with imagery i'm guilty. I wrote a book called fish out of water. All the stuff you're talking about of course in my book fish out of water but you're right. It's what woke me up to the horror of communism. My mom and dad live this and so growing up with them. I just heard their stories over and over and over again and so you realize. Wow that is bad. That is why you've written this book. God and cancel culture because cancelled culture. Leads us slowly and sometimes not so slowly toward big state socialist communist marxist thinking. That's exactly what it is. Anybody who lived through the chinese cultural revolution much worse than anything. My parents saw that was the cancel culture on proverbial steroids. It was a nightmare. If you defied the the marxist thinking during the cultural revolution they humiliated you. They did things to those people. Anybody's lived through. This stuff knows we don't even to go near that. Cancel culture is is going near that. Well it's still really bad in in com- communist china north korea. There's lots of examples. If you don't agree with the government they cancel you including putting you in prison. In some instances killing you which is the ultimate cancellation and this talk.

I honestly believe that biden is terrified of the of the of the squad. I don't know that. Afc and anna presley and rashida to leave or calling the shots but understand they represent a coalition of today's democratic party that is this radical crazed burned down cities you know black lives matter. Radical upend social norms. Everything that we've seen is represented by eight allowed bunch of bullies. Who called themselves democrats. And i and. I believe that biden is afraid of them. He's afraid of their wrath. He's afraid of their anger. He's afraid of their their rage and he's he's trying to accommodate them.

"For food for the poor. Why because we all know that we've got to give back. We all know that there's something we can do. but what. where do we give so food for. The poor is one of number of organizations that we partner with because they've been vetted we have a history with them. We know how they work and we know how far they can stretch your dollar so if you give thirty seven dollars to food for the poor. One kid can be fed for six months for thirty seven dollars. Folks that's astonishing. I hope you're astonished But anyway what. I wanted to say that we have and said this because this is tough stuff. It says that children under five years old in honduras. That's one of the places where we're giving to right now. It says that chronic malnourishment causes over twenty five percent of these kids under five years to be stunted in their early growth so we are talking about serious effects serious effects. Can you imagine that in our hemisphere not many miles from america. We have this going on. So this is food for the poor is tackling early childhood hunger. That's what we're asking you to give to. Thirty seven dollars feeds kid for six months. Obviously hundred. eleven dollars blesses three kids. This is a real tragedy. But it's something we can do and it's up to us actually to do it. I'll give you the phone number in just a minute. But i want to say that Market fresh is a project manager. Food for the poor. He had a clip. I wanted to play that so we can hear from him. Let's play that these families are in need. We've heard how people who had never found themselves in a position of begging are now asking for assistance in if that is happening for the middle class in these countries you can only imagine the impact that's happening for the poorest. It's it's amazing. I mean people like marcus fresh and others. They they see these kids. And if you if you go to places like this and you see these kids and then it hits you that thirty seven dollars could feed that kit for six months. Wow so i'm just hoping that. Your heart's heartstrings. Are being tugged on a little bit because frankly this is real this is happening and we on this program have made a commitment to food for the poor to reach out to you on their behalf or on behalf of these kids. There's a phone number. I'll give you the phone number Eight four four eight six three. Hope if you prefer the phone.

"I have a lot of this products. And buy more. If i can figure out who i could give them to as gifts i. I wanted to support him as much as i can. But there's other ways that they cancel economically. I go into this in the book. God and cancelled culture. It has to do with credit card processing. This is something that those of us who aren't in the banking or credit card industry don't know anything about but when you submit your credit card for payment accepted or rejected and then it goes into this way that the banks transfer money and they finally put on your bill and you pay it but there. There are some of these places that have canceled conservative and christian organizations because they don't like the fact that they go against the woke feeling. That lgbt is okay. They stand for biblical values. They're not necessarily hateful. They're not pointing their guns at anyone. They are just saying what they believe and they're credit cards won't be processed is becoming a real problem and if people can control you like this. They're controlling your ability to buy sell and for those of us who study any kind of bible prophecy at all. It sounds a lot like the beginning of the mark of the beast. The anti christ. You know this is stuff. I never thought. I would see in my lifetime but you gotta believe that is building up towards something one world government i mean i'm not a conspiracy theorist and maybe it'll happen generations from now but it sure looks like it's building up to something and cancer culture is part of it. I i just hate the fact. That i agree with that i hate it. It's sickening to me but unfortunately if you're paying attention that's exactly what it looks like If you really are paying attention there are a lot of people who either. They're not paying attention or they can't bear the thought so they have to. They have to you know. Brush it off as conspiracy theory or exaggeration. I wish it were. But i have to be honest and say that one of the reasons I wanted to talk to you about. This book is because i feel like this is front and center in our lives. Here's the issue. Your book says gutting cancel culture. Stand strong before. It's too late if we don't stand strong now if we don't push back now if we don't now we will go down this path that you and i have been talking about and so the question is will we stand up. Well we fight there many people listening right now. They're not fighting. They're not doing anything. Well hopefully my booker caused them to wake up and people are speaking up. I think there is hope. I try to end the book with hope. We haven't lost yet but it's like leaning back at a chair you can leave back. Lean back and you can write it. Put it back on four legs if you want to. But at some point you lean back too far you get to a tipping point where it's impossible to put it down. You just fall backwards. That's where the term tipping point came from and we're getting pretty close to that tipping point. I'm afraid but we can't speak up. We can be strong and even programs like this and everything you do. The you said. Mike lindell was a hero. I think you're a hero to for all that you've done and you have really been attacked lately and So bravo for standing strong yourself. Well thank you. We've just got about a minute left. But i just want to say that. I have my parents to thank because my parents. They really made me see. They grew up in in some cases. Living hell no food. They they saw the evil and so they made me understand. This is real. Because i haven't seen it in my lifetime. That's because i'm ridiculously blessed living in america but around the world most people know there is evil. There's a potential for terrible terrible things. The question is will the people with the power with the freedom in this country. Will they wake up and fight now and again. that's the title of your book gun cancelled. Culture stands strong before it's too late. We've got forty seconds. Do you think people will push back. I believe they're starting to and you're right. This is a wonderful country. Why do you think people are pouring over our southern borders if this is such a terrible racist country or whatever else the left says we are. It's a wonderful place. We're still the land of the free and the home of the brave. Well that's a beautiful way to end it folks. The book is god and cancel culture. Forward by mike lindell But the book is by stephen strang. Stephen it's just a joy to know You're in the fight with us. I hope your book and this interview wakes people up. They need to wake up today. Steven thank you. Thank you eric law. A try to make it.

"I'm talking to stephen strang. My friend who's written a book called god and cancel culture. The subtitle is stand strong before it's too late The forward is written by mike lindell who has become the most cancelled man alive. He still standing. He's a hero And i wanna ask you You talked about. Kohl's canceling him bed bath and beyond canceling him. They said we don't like your politics. We don't like you speaking up. We don't care if you're right or wrong we don't like you. We disagree. Were shutting you down. That's where we are in america that the big tech and big stores corporations are going along with this. It really does feel like what happened in germany in the early thirties. They said if you don't play along you're out. That's what cancelled. Culture is the subtitle of your book. God and cancel culture. Stand strong before it's too late. Talk about that stand strong before it's too late. Well christians as a group a rather passive generally. They're nice people go along to get along. You know they hope it won't affect them. Some of us like me live in kind of a bubble. Most the people in my life are christians. I recognize that a lot of this nonsense doesn't affect me but we cannot ignore it any longer. They're gonna come and get all of us sooner or later and you're right. Mike lindell is a hero. I don't know that he's been canceled as much as donald trump has but the right up there together and he's like donald trump in that he doesn't seem to care you know he just seems to thrive on it. And you know there's a very important serious thing. When it comes to economics we talked about communism it at the final At the end of the day it's economics and his atheism and they're starting to when people were cancelled they lose their job or they lose. Whatever they're losing the right to make an income with mike lindell. Why does that one of the retailers say. Hey you can't buy at these other retailers. Come over here..

"Using health to try to push regulations on us that before they would not have gotten away with. This is not the blue bonnet plague when it first happened. We didn't know but within a week or two we could tell it was bad but it didn't even come close to be that bad. In fact as it goes through the population the death rate is really very very small and and the people who die probably would've died. A lot of them are very old they would have died within a matter of months of something else anyway but the thing is that even to say that is being cancelled. Some of the doctors that are saying. Listen we can give you hydroxy. Clark win or ivermectin which i take myself as a prophylactic. If you say that you're terrible you can't you can't say that on facebook we're going to cancel you. We're going to say that you're a quack when it's not a quack. Hydroxy chloroquine is. I'm told is a safest tylenol and not much more expensive yet. They treat it. Like i mean if there was even a possibility it would help if it was just fifty fifty. You try it. There's nothing is not to kill you like the vaccine is but yet there's a. There's a group think we call a political correctness. It's been around for a long time is just got much much worse. And it's time for christians and other conservatives to stand up and say that's enough we'll be right back talking to the author of god and cancel culture. Stephen strang dan. You're talking to the author of god and cancel culture. Stephen strang stephen We were talking earlier about vaccines and all these things. And it's a. It's a weird moment in america where you know. I always say look. I want to be rational right. So there's some people who think the vaccine is a good idea. I think it's a horrible idea but we disagree but the point is we have people like lemmings saying we can't disagree shut up. Don't talk about that stuff. Those people crazy Just get the vaccine. The vaccine and i think it was okay. Wait a second If i get the vaccine is there any downside potentially three years from now five years from now we don't really know probably not and i say okay so probably not but you're not really sure so i'm not going to get it okay. And people like no no no you you gotta get. You can't eat at restaurants you can't go to college. You can't go to biolo- anything. Wow what happened to americans thinking for themselves making their own decisions. Some people are trying to enforce a certain kind of thinking and even if they're right they have no right to enforce thinking that's basically what cancelled culture is students to use the culture and peer pressure to bully a group. You wanna go to restaurant. You wanna walk around without a mask. You better do this. That's it's fundamentally un-american. I mean forget forget unchristian. It's fundamentally un-american i agree with you percent and that's the point i tried to make the now. I live down in florida where things are relatively normal. And i don't personally face that kind of thing but and in the book i re i research everything. There's footnotes i'm very careful what i'm gonna tell you now is anecdotal a couple of weeks ago. My wife and i went to a wedding there about sixty people. They only invited people who had had the vaccine. They made a couple of exceptions for my wife. And i had the antibodies since then twenty people of the sixty have come down with cova at table and he said last say that again wine t twenty people out of sixty now at our table there were there was a couple. They were friends of ours. We talked about the fact they'd had the vaccine cove it. My wife and high who have not been back had the antibodies on. Didn't scenes supposed to keep you from getting the scene. Does that's right but you know someone said and again you don't wanna believe but someone said it should not be called a vaccine. It should be called a shot. It's not it's not. It's not a real on no vaccine. So they're calling it a vaccine but it's not a vaccine. It is a shot. It's experimental a therapy. Here's here's the point. The people who got the vaccine then get the disease. But that's not the worst part. The worst part is now they can spread the disease. So they're walking around saying i'm vaccinated. They can spread the disease. So you've got an experimental shot and not only. Do you get the disease. But you can spread the disease to people. We're living in crazier. You spread the flu. The common flew right. When i had kobe did. It was a very mild cases. I said i have been much sicker but the common flu and the common cold in years past for me. It wasn't that bad. I realize some people die. But i had a friend recently my age who died of the flu.

God and cancel culture stephen strang. Welcome thank you eric. I always enjoy being with you. I enjoy being with you. And you've written a this is an important thing. Because i think there are plenty of people who don't they very sloppily Push political suffer cultural stuff away from theological stuff. They don't seem to understand that. God wants to be in every single conversation. We're having in the culture wherever so how our god for those people who aren't yet sold on this hauer god and cancelled culture related. You know you touched on. A guide is central to everything. Whether or not atheist rag nas ticks just nominal christian say so or not and cancel. Culture has been going on for longtime one of the best examples is the romans tried to cancel christianity in the first century and they failed and there are people trying to cancel god today in fact i make the argument into book. Didn't cancel culture. That the real end result of all this cancelation which has been going on for years. But it's gotten worse. Lately is to try to cancel christianity and try to cancel the influence of god out of our culture and the end result. I believe is some kind of socialism. Communism and at its base is eight theistic and they have to get god. They have to get judeo-christian values out of the culture and everything and i cover the waterfront. I mean there are many aspects to this from kobe to twitter and two my pillow i covered all but i think it comes back to the fact that people are trying to cancel. God now i have to be honest with my audience and say that i'm in this book god and cancelled culture. You wanted to interview me for the book. I completely forgot about that. To be honest. I mean that was some time ago and But you you talk about me in the book. I know you wrote an op ed for the book. In which you. You talk about me. And i'll put that out there for my audience but this has this has certainly come for me. Cancelled culture and i think there are two issues with how cancelled closures related to god. Number one is explicitly that canceled culture seems to want to push christian influence out of the public sphere. So we're talking really about cultural marxism but the other way is that canceled. Culture is anti grace if it's anti-god anti-biblical if it's pro marxist it's anti grace and so to cancel somebody's the opposite of saying that one sin you have that's covered by grace and we're going to look at the good you've done. This is exactly the opposite. I don't know if you go into that but it strikes me that it's important us to say that. Just the idea of cancelling somebody. He's graceless. I agree with you entirely. In fact one thing about the left and the cancer culture crowd or woke nece. I mean there's different ways to say is that there's no redemption if you sin according to what they say there's no redemption that's the opposite of christianity and one of the arguments that i make is right out of the bible story about where the shepherd left in ninety nine and went after the one sheet. That's what christianity is. All about is actually the opposite of what a communism or atheism is where the ninety nine are important in sacrifice the one law sheep and these things are twine a lot of christian notice or at least they should know it and as far as you being in the book. You're a big part of the book. I have all chapter called. It's not cancelled culture. It's communism and i tell your story. You know which you told me. I i already knew it. That's why i reached out to you and the story of your own parents and and how that is just set you on fire in terms of speaking up. In spite of the fact that they have painted a big bull's eye on your back aiming and shooting at you. You know it's funny stephen. I realized that when you go through trials. It's a good thing because it wakes you up to. What do i really believe. Do i really believe. Jesus destroy death on the cross. Did he actually destroyed that because if he did. I shouldn't be afraid of death. I should be emboldened to live genuinely freely. Because i fear nothing except god and i kind of think that when you go through the turmoil that a lot of us have been going through as a result of this bizarre cancelled culture. You just think wait a minute. What kind of life was i. Living was living in half-measures. Am i willing to really believe what i say i believe. I mean think how many people go to churches with crosses in that church. I mean there are people all of this country even mainline protestants Greek orthodox catholics whatever. So the question is. Do you believe that jesus defeated death on the cross. If you did you will push back against chemical. You won't be afraid but there are a lot of people living in fear that they will get cancelled. A lot of christians i mean. Did you talk to christians who aren't clear on this issue or did the folks you reached out to do they get this well. I mostly reached out to people who could help us know what's going on. But you know luke warmness. Is you know how the book of revelation talk about the church and leo and so it's been around a long time and we know a lot of churches have been going liberal. This has been happening for the last several centuries since the reformation and one of the things. That's good about this. And as christians we believe the scripture and one of the scriptures is all things work together for good to those who love the lord. And i believe that one of the good things that's happening out of all the terrible things and there are a lot of terrible things is that people are doing exactly what you're saying eric. They're waking up. This is Separating the sheep from the goats so to speak. There are so many passive christians. I interview some pastors. Who just stayed out of the political thing. Hey i don't want to offend anybody in my congregation. I i may be a conservative and i believe in biblical values but i don't want to speak up somebody shoot at me. Some of these people. Like rob mccoy in california or che on in pasadena or greg farrington by sacramento and. They're just a few of many who have gotten spines of steel standing. Up to gavin newsom. And all of the you know there's lots of examples but gavin newsom seems to be the poster boy for how bad it could get where he was actually persecuting. The church were losing our religious freedoms even though we have the first amendment. Well i have been amazed. I don't know when we hear this interview. It'll be a few weeks when we're talking right now. But i learned this weekend that there are christian colleges requiring vaccine proof to attend and i thought to myself. This is christian. Overtly christian colleges by ola was mentioned. I thought what world have we entered when the basic ideas of freedom have been thrown out the window. There is so much fear. I mean again. I didn't mean to talk about covert but it's almost funny to me. People act as though it's the bubonic plague it's polio. It's something i i know. So many people who've had it and recovered quickly and yet we have christian colleges kind of participating in this because their idea of freedom doesn't seem to it just doesn't seem to reach into these things and i think that's part of the cancel cultures that people don't really have the they don't have the The american values Deepen them where they understand. We can't do this. We can't do that but it has entered the churches. I could give other examples where people are wishy washy. They don't really know what they believe. They go along to get along. I'm absolutely against vaccines. I mean i read recently. And you don't know what to believe and i haven't had a chance to research at the twelve. Thousand people have died from the vaccine. I had very very mild case of covert that a guide on on an airplane. Some when i got absolutely exhausted and ran down my immune system. But i was better in two days so now i have the immunity. You know for me. I say people can make a decision. They should have control over their own body. They ought to be able to decide. I'm concerned that the government is just imposing everything..

"The eric metaxas. Show with your host eric taxes. Folks today. I hardly know where to begin except to say that We are in the midst of a and international tragedy. What's happening in afghanistan on a number of levels. A lot of friends of mine have different points of view on it except everybody Agrees that it's a fiasco that What is happening. There will be called the biden caliphate That's that's kind of where we are. I wanted to bring on an old friend. Dr jeff myers. He's the president of summit ministries to talk about this. Jeff myers welcome. Thank you eric. Good to be with you. Since you're an old friend. I can call you. Jeff is jeff okay or you want jeff. Three missing maya's listen so you're in in colorado springs or someplace near there are in manitou springs. Yeah it's a little hippie town right at the foot of pike's peak right next to colorado springs okay and and well let me just ask you. Though a lot of people don't know what summit ministries is so we're talking about afghanistan and biden in a divided nation. And you have some original polling which we've not done on this program before i don't think but tell my audience how you come into the subject. I mean What summit is how you come into the subject of afghanistan and divided nation. Eric is you know. Summit ministries is equipping and supporting a rising generation to embrace. god's true to champion a biblical worldview so our programs are two weeks long students come here as their headed off to the university and we've started to really be intent on figuring out what kind of world are students are going into. What is it really like on the university campus. What is it really alike in society. And of course george barna. The pollster helps us with that. He surveys our students but we started to do a lot of national polling to figure out. What is this divided. America that we're hearing about. How can we help our students prepare for it and what we found is pretty interesting. That americans mostly blamed politicians. Fifty eight percent say politicians are to blame for divided america. Fifty four percent are to blame Of news media are to blame and then forty four. Percents say. Social media are to blame. So what's essentially happening is the elites have put in a position where they are dividing us and it's sadly it takes something like the situation in afghanistan for people to come back together and realize hey we aren't divided. We only know byron's jerk. Isn't it beautiful. We can come together and we can agree. Left and right biden is an incompetent fool and i say that in love as a christian. So let me ask you. Dr jeff myers president of summit ministries What is happening right now. With regard to what is this. Poll that you're talking about well. The poll is something we did with mclaughlin. So it's a national polling company and the question really was our americans really talking about important issues in how they talk about them so it was kind of some of the things we discovered are that americans are having tough conversations that more than half of americans say within the last week or the last month they have had a difficult conversation on a topic with someone with whom they strongly disagree conversation. I guess i wanna be a little bit. Skeptical in that I don't see that in other words. I see people on the left and right divided in such a way that they may have an argument but an actual conversation. What what gives you evidence that these are conversations because well. I'm just i would like to think people are having conversations. Well i think a lot of people are. We tend to look at social media to see whether they are or they aren't but that's not the right place to look. You want us to be with people in their workplace that you want to be with people you know on the subway or when they're at a family reunion or something like that to see if they're having these conversations that's the kind of context that they're thinking about now. Most people are saying. Hey one top conversations come up. I basically i just listened respectfully sixty. Some percent of americans say that's their default impulse. Twenty so percent say they engage in conversation conservatives. Not surprising are a lot better at this than liberals conservatives are twice as likely to take polite stance rather than a rude stance. Y jeff myers. Look you're mr christian worldview I have an answer for this. But let me tee it up for you. Why is it because this is interesting. This is really interesting. You're saying polling data reveals that conservatives are more civil gracious in an conversation in which they're talking to somebody they disagree with what what is that. What are those numbers again. Well liberals were twice as likely to say that when they're talking with someone they disagree with. They're likely to ignore them. Cut them out of their lives or become angry. Conservatives impulse was to say that they're likely to listen respectfully and engage in conversation. I think it comes back to the whole battle over truth. Conservatives basically believed that there is such a thing as truth on that we can discover it whereas people who are on the left. Progressives say believed that truth is completely up to the individual. So so i'm speaking my truth so have you disagree with me. It's not just that you're disagree. With my opinion it's that you're attacking me as a person and i will fight back. I think that's how people on the left tend to see and this polling data reveals that that's true by the way. Eric millennials are the worst. Twentysomethings are the worst. They are three times as likely as any other age group to say that their response to conflict is to cut somebody out of their life or get angry. This is interesting. unfortunately. I wish it weren't so interesting. it strikes me jeff that we are in some kind of a civil war. It's a cultural civil war. it's an informational civil war. Because coming down here on the taxi this morning The taxi driver has npr. Or something loud. And i'm able to listen to it. And i thought to myself the people talking. He's talking to new york restaurant owners or something or people who dine in new york restaurants. They're actually afraid of catching ovid. Like they have bought into this idea. That it's like the bubonic plague and they. They don't feel this way about the flu. They don't feel this way about you know Std's evidently they don't feel this way about anything but they're living in this incredible fear and it's real and it leads them to want to shun in a kind of old fashioned puritanical. Nasty way anybody who's not vaccinated or not wearing a mask. But i thought they really do believe this. We have to understand. They're not being mean just to be mean they believe this. But it's because they're listening to information and news sources that. Give them this point of view exclusively. So that's kind of the weird situation. How can we be united as a nation when our sources of information are radically different. Well this is especially plaguing the young adults that we work with i. I will answer the question. But i should point out the mental health association when they screen young adults for depression. They're now saying that. Up to ninety percent of young adults are screening positive for moderate to severe depression. They they watch the news media. They don't have the ability to filter out. So yeah there probably exaggerating because they wanna keep people tuned in so they're advertisers can give the money that's not what's occurring to a young adult. They're just thinking. Oh my goodness this is what's actually happening. The answer that seems to be the thing bullying americans together as actually biblical values. You might find the surprising we asked What do you believe that the values found in the bible are essential to a healthy american society. Seventy seventy two percent of americans said yes. Eighty two percent of african americans said yes which indicates to me that african americans are not buying into the critical race theory. America is evil kind of narrative that we are being given and what ties all of this together. People basically believe according to this survey that everybody bears god's image. Everybody deserves dignity. If we forget that point will fall apart as a society. If we remember it we can heal. Where can people find you and summit ministries. because i know they're young people all around the country Who would be interested in summit. Yes and and anyone who reaches young people as well summit dot org is our website if you want a free e book about this kind of issue and how to engage using questions and listening. It's just summit dot org slash cancel..

"And wherever you get your podcasts you add some excellent reporting this week. John on the Tiger Woods Phil Mickelson Gulf Xfi Richard. This is why I like to come on this podcast. Build up my stories like that. I pretty much I think any media person reporter came on. I'd probably say the same thing even if I didn't think it was great reporting just trying to butter him up. No but in this case it was really interesting Because I have not seen this anywhere except you. You reported that Tiger Woods and Phil. Mickelson are under contract to participate in one more golf exhibition with Turner Sports. So the sort of the initial deal would have been three exhibitions and it has to take the third exhibition sort of has to take place within the next twelve to eighteen months. You report that Turner in the golfers each reserve the right to pull out of the deal. so here's where I want to get to with you. The debris demanding thing was obviously a mega success magazine. Success on viewership mega-success on critical praise was great and fun to watch What what do you think again understanding that some of the viewership numbers amped up for sure because it was not competing against anything. But what do you think the success of this means John for this kind of enterprise? This is Tiger Woods Phil Mickelson and then add whoever? You want to make an interesting. What does it mean heading forward? Got If there's one truism about television it's every network sees what what works in its successful and tries to copycat it and it happened in entertainment. Television happens with sitcoms. How many sort of friends series did Did every other network Sir try to Try to launch after the success of friends back in the nineties. All on all the way through so You can bet that every network is looking at these numbers and and looking at the sort of really the critical success. Did anybody have anything bad to say about the match on Memorial Day weekend? It was I it was just really well produced. It was a lot of fun One on maybe a little bit long. I think it was more than four hours To to watch but it was You know I. It was pretty. It was good television to watch. So you know on on one hand You Can. I'm certain that Turner and other sports Networks are GonNa GonNa try to do something similar to this The one thing though and you you alluded to this. The the numbers were amped up. But but I there is a sense that Turner especially just the caught lightning in a bottle. They had Charles. Barkley giving grief to Tom Brady and he turns around and makes like a shot from one hundred yards out. You know for for Birdie you know and it was just like you can't script that I mean that was the that was. That was a pretty amazing piece of television. You had a monsoon basically come in. And they're playing in the rain you had everybody with The covid sort of sheltered at home with no other sports there was nothing on I guess there was a NASCAR race for for part of it but there was really competition For it and so that that number was like five point. Six or five point seven million viewers which which you know the biggest Viewership in the history of Cable Television for for golf in that viewership is It's it would be really hard to replicate that but that's not gonNA stop other networks from doing it. Yeah I agree I think I think this is very much related to the. I'm talking about abuse from very much related to the penick. It's Day at home orders. It's not to say that they can't do an entertaining event whether you use other golfers. Whatever rory mcilroy line Dustin Johnson? But I don't think we're going to see this replicated even with woods and Mickelson doing it next year but for Turner listen great publicity also the the the the care. The charitable component of it is a-. That's something else. You can't replicate I mean twenty Twenty million to a a covert fund. It You know when one else can you do that so everything conspired to make this successful as a great yeah. They're not again. It's not a bad thing. It's not going to happen but that's okay. I think they will do this for sure. One more time and I think people will be interested in. They may get a little bit of a pop from this year's This year's event and people sort of wanting to check it out again probably going to have to figure out a way to. I think. Find Two other very famous people whether that's famous athletes You know I mean this isn't going to happen but like if you had a tiger woods and Lebron James for Steph Curry and Phil Mickelson. I think people would tune it. There'd be fascinating but I I don't know if that's going to happen again. So we'll We'll see how that goes but yeah I don't. I don't know if you can find like two other people that had the chemistry of Brady and Manning and and and Nicholson Tiger didn't talk a ton but like you know those three chemistry going. That was like just really cool. And that's all that's another part. That's going to be really difficult to replicate. Yeah I don't I was thinking the other day like could like. Is there a singer or is there an actor or politician? Is there sports? Figure I I don't know I I don't know there's no one who you sort of just can name off the top of your head.
