Have you noticed how nutty it’s gotten out there? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the idiocy cranked out by the media and by others who are trying so hard to adhere to politically correct mantras that they completely ignore logic. From campuses offering segregated housing to a backup quarterback speaking out against oppression while wearing a Castro t-shirt, things are definitely tilting at the absurd. It’s up to us to point out when they are being self-contradictory and hypocritical.
Nationalization of local police forces has been a hot button issues for years, but the federal government has now found a path to making it a reality. Richard Manning (www.getliberty.org), President of Americans for Limited Government, joins us to discuss a sue-and-settle scheme from the Justice Department that will lock in a city’s law enforcement to federal review.
Steel on Steel has always been an alternative to journalist activists in the mainstream media, who try to shape your opinion rather than give you the news. Steve Turley (www.turleytalks.com), Teacher at Tall Oaks Classical School in Delaware, joins John this week to examine media bias and the assault on free speech. The solid foundation of facts will always be at odds with the shifting sand of relativistic values.
The very same biased media have ignored a crucial fact in the EpiPen pricing controversy: why it’s happening. Dan Gainor (www.mrc.org), Vice President at the Media Research Center, shows that the government engineered a monopoly on EpiPens, which led to the price increase. He also looks at the attack on free speech from a biased media and politically correct liberals.
John’s quote of the week:
“Am I missing something here? Or is stupidity masquerading as a virtue? Has the whole equality goal of Martin Luther King where no one is judged by their skin but rather by their character and accomplishment been totally trashed? It’s an ocean of growing lunacy.”
