Its amazing that the more "woke" you become, the narrower and radical your mind becomes

maybe I'm just not woke enough to understand

Absolutely agree on all points.

Let’s face it...the radical left has long ago infiltrated, among other things, education, media and government in America. Their messages have indeed been infused into the the very fabric of our nation.

Ok, fair enough. But, we need no longer pretend that the Statist’s indoctrination does not exist.

It seems to me to be fair (to borrow a portion of the left’s rally cry) to push back BY ALL CONSTITUTIONAL MEANS NECESSARY. Especially via the First Amendment and of course cherishing Due Process for all Americans.

Oh, and by the way Eric Swalwell has recently spouted off on the Second Amendment - if his policies are adopted I predict that it will not go well for the nation.

“Mr. Swalwell has decided to run for president on an anti-Second Amendment platform (while exhibiting a clear lack of understanding about guns), and has reiterated his desire to imprison Americans who don't hand over banned weapons.”

These people are dangerous.

By means "necessary to the security of a free state" should all other Constitutional means fail.

It is not (by a long-shot) too early to be having that hard look in the mirror, think about the Constitutional means at hand, and examine in your own heart & mind - with hard candor - how those have worked out.

I suspect Murray is all for being 'combative' right up until someone with a differing opinion chooses to be 'combative' against her.

$85,000/yr Tuition to help pay this AA pseudo "Doctor" spout her views on her social/political views. Instead of giving her talk/presentation on the Nova Campus she should be performing at Temple University's McGonigal Hall. Location is everything.

Today is a good day to remember that on 19 April 1775 the British "Regulars/Redcoats" marched from Boston to Lexington and Concord to seize the cannons and munitions of the local Minutemen.
It didn't go well for them that day.

The democrats/socialist would do well to read OUR history.

HISTORY! They don’t have time to read our history, they (the freshman Democrats) are too busy laying out plans for the future and all’s we have to do is borrow and spend $72-Trillion and we can erase the past ills and travesties of our pitiful past. Hell, they can’t tear down the statues fast enough to suggest we did something wrong.

Give them a little more time and they will in fact be burning books in front of the library. Especially if they were written by a white person or were based on facts.

The statue of Kate Smith (God Bless America) was covered by a black cloth because some ASS HAT Temple University "Professor" said some of the songs she recorded in the 1930's were racist. This statue was placed at The Wells Fargo Sports Complex where the Flyers Hockey Team & The 76'ers Basketball Team perform. The 2nd Civil War will be over when the Ultra Liberal Left "Progressives" are NEUTRALIZED.

Just for a little perspective on how fast the cancer of communism can spread in a civil war...some brief lowlights below with approximate dates. When the host develops communism it metastases rapidly. Funny, China went through a phase of erasing history.

1921-1949

Chinese Communist party formed 1921 - eventually communists take over all of mainland China by 1949

1945-1949 civil war - Commies seize power and control mainland China

1966-1976 Cultural Revolution - purge - millions killed, imprisoned, tortured or otherwise humiliated, loss of all private property.

The Cultural Revolution attacked the “4 Olds”
old customs,
old culture,
old habits,
old ideas.

The youthful revolutionaries swept the mainland destroying books, shrines, monuments and lives.

America is not magically immune - the old guys seem to understand this.

The only things I would add to the above:

1)Struggle Sessions: public humiliation and abuse during the Cultural Revolution, often in front of large stadium crowds if the victim was well known.

Sounds a lot like anyone today with a large social media following who steps off of the narrow line of political correctness, is publicly outed and compelled to beg for forgiveness from the self appointed social media accusers.

2)30 year Anniversary of Tiananmen Square Protests(3 days ago) and not a peep.

I wonder if it gets much press before the 30th anniversary of the late May, early June 1989 slaughter?

But I’m sure we will hear endlessly about the 49th and 50th of Kent State.

This. Happens every day to those conditioned to it, regardless of veracity of the previous remarks. Socially-conscious employers, especially akademia, are all-in on expecting repentance & self-flagellation.

It's a bit left leaning IMO, but interesting none the less. His description of Patriot Prayer, Proud Boys, Cliven Bundy and LaVoy Finicum, and fear of Alex Jones is typical of many city dwellers and soy boys. The hosts referencing of Roger Stone as the 'recently indicted asshole' shows clear bias.

I have not finished listening, but thus far, the Host has offered scant mention or detail on groups like AntiFA, OWS, BLM, etc.

Interested in your thoughts on the podcast which you posted after you have a chance to listen.

Happy Easter.
