John is speaking this weekend in Missouri so we will forego the boralogue and jump right into the show with Dr. Allen Guelzo (www.gettysburg.edu), Professor of Civil War Studies at Gettysburg College. He details the slavery debate during the Constitutional Convention, refutes the common three-fifths of a person myth, and asserts that upholding the First Amendment is more than just preserving a document; it’s about preserving humanity.
The woke movement is in full swing among far left progressives, but what is this movement? Author and speaker Dr. Michael Rectenwald (www.michaelrectenwald.com) is back with us to describe the origins of the woke movement and its eerie similarities to the Chinese Cultural Revolution under Mao and shows how socialism is infiltrating our society through social media.
John’s quote of the week:
“These issues, whether it’s Alinsky or the Frankfurt School or the Woke Movement, the whole purpose is designed to destroy the existing structure. President Obama said ‘radical transformation,’ so then you have to ask ‘what are we transforming to?‘”
In this week’s Extras segment, we play an interview John gave on Q90FM in Wisconsin with Mike LeMay on the program Stand Up For The Truth. They discuss liberal institutions, inconsistencies with far left progressive thinking, and how the definitions of words and phrases have been changed to fit specific narratives.
