Many questions surround woke ideology but perhaps one of the simplest – what is whiteness? – is never really addressed. Joining us today is Jason Hill (jasondamianhill.com), Professor of Philosophy at DePaul University in Chicago. He not only answers that question, but he goes on to show that its really Western civilization that the woke leftists want to destroy. Most people don't agree with this totalitarianism, but they also don't stand up to it out of fear of being canceled or worse. If we're going to change our national identity away from wokeness and back to Judeo-Christian ideals, then there needs to be a large-scale campaign to stand up.
Critical race theory has taken hold in education, but now that it has been roundly rejected by a majority of the people, teachers unions and educrats are running away from it. First up on the show this week is Lindsey Curnutte (heritageaction.com), Press Secretary for Heritage Action for America. She looks at how the NEA seems to be washing their hands of CRT, erasing it completely from their website. She also promotes Heritage's new e-book on how to combat critical race theory, which you can find at crtbook.com.
Because of CRT and the many other Marxist theories that have been taught to children for decades, many of today's youth don't want to debate and don't seem capable of understanding history as it actually was. Anne-Christine Hoff (jarvis.edu), Professor of English at Jarvis Christian College in Texas, joins us. She discusses how ideological youth make claims they can't back up or defend and then call you a racist if you disagree with them. That is classic Marxism. She also looks at how many Christian universities haven't stepped up to address these issues.
This toxic ideology has spilled out of universities onto the street as our next guest can attest. Back with us is longtime friend of the show Dexter Van Zile (camera.org), Christian Media Analyst for CAMERA. He describes the horrible treatment he endured during a Students for Palestine rally at a university campus in Boston. There's a degradation of civility in the U.S. and a significant part of that is aimed at Jews and supporters of Israel. That campaign is in part a result of untrue narratives being perpetuated throughout the education system.
We wrap up today's show with Tara Ross (saveourstates.com), Advisor at the group Save Our States. She examines the checks and balances that keep absolute power from any one branch of government, focusing on the For the People Act, which has been shot down for now but will not go away. She also looks at 2020 election-related procedures that did not go through proper channels and egregious overreach by governors during the pandemic.
The word psyops is most often used in describing crazy conspiracy theories, but there's actually psychological warfare being conducted on U.S. soil right now – and it's not a theory. Joining us today is Dexter Van Zile (camera.org), Christian Media Analyst for CAMERA, and he describes what happened to him during a Students for Palestine rally at the University of Massachusetts campus in Boston. A few days later, a rabbi in Boston was stabbed 8 times. There's a degradation of civility in the U.S. and a significant part of that is aimed at Jews and supporters of Israel. This psychological, and at times physically violent, warfare is a result of untrue narratives being perpetuated throughout the media and in the education system.
Extended conversation this week as John and Carol sit down with father and son economic experts Donald and David McAlvany (mcalvanyica.com). The foursome team up to tackle a variety of topics, including current financial trends, burgeoning inflation, the upcoming economic reset, and the rapid onset of in-your-face socialism. They also take a look at the theological and philosophical side of things, as well as the importance of strategic thinking and long-term planning, and the need for little people to do big things each and every day.
We finish up this week with Tammi Rossman-Benjamin (amchainitiative.org), Co-Founder and Director of the AMCHA Initiative. She describes her efforts to combat a bill in California that would force critical race theory into high school curricula. She focuses on the toxic antisemitic nature of CRT and how it doesn’t attempt to eradicate racism and hate – it perpetuates them.
We're leading off the week with a two-guest episode. First up today is Tammi Rossman-Benjamin, Co-Founder and Director of the AMCHA Initiative (amchainitiative.org). She describes her efforts to combat a bill in California that would incorporate critical race theory into high school curricula. CRT has an element of antisemitism within it, perpetuating racism and hate rather than trying to fight it.
We then transfer to our second guest, Joe Collins (joecollinsforcongress.com), a Republican running for the U.S. House of Representatives in California's 43rd Congressional District (the one currently held by Maxine Waters). He looks at his district as it has been run by Ms. Waters, why he would be a much better fit in Congress, and why minorities always seem to vote for the very people that keep them down.
Recent comments by Marc Lamont-Hill seemed to suggest that Black Lives Matter and anti-semitism go hand in hand. Here today to talk about this is AJ Swinson (newjourneypac.org), Chief of Staff at New Journey Political Action Committee. She explains how black movements wanting a better way of life have been co-opted by Marxist groups like Black Lives Matter who don't simply want to try and change things for the better – they want to overthrow the whole system. They tag Israel with the oppressor status, calling for them to wiped away as well. Change does need to happen, but through reform, not a fundamental transformation of society.
A question often asked: why does the black community continue to vote for the same people who seem to do them the most harm? Author, columnist, and lecturer Vince Ellison (www.irontrianglebook.com) joins us to discuss his experience in dealing with the Democrat Party, who, he submits, are getting exactly what they want – 90% of the black vote – so why would they change anything?
Mr. Ellison shows that not all white people are racists, just like not all black conservatives are Uncle Toms. Moral values, honesty, and faith are the most important things, regardless of your skin color. He also gives a scathing indictment of the Democrat Party throughout history.
A common question asked today: why are things happening the way they're happening? There just doesn't seem to be any reason or logic in any of this. In this week's boralogue, John looks at the stages postmodernists and Marxists go through to destroy the country, all of which explains exactly what's happening today. In order to take us down, they have to knock out our foundations and destabilize society. It is a war to fundamentally transform our country. And it's getting to a point where we can no longer hunker down and hope it passes us by. We need to stand up for what is right before it's too late.
We play the full discussion John had recently with Lee Lancaster at a local North Idaho radio station, KYMS.
Wake up, America! Radical Progressives are organizing for a transformation of Western society on all levels. This Marxist infiltration won't stop at the doors of your homes and churches. John and Lee discuss how these revolutions have always oppressed anyone who gets in their way, even their own 'true believers'. What are the costs required to stand up to this onslaught and is there any hope in sight?
How did we go from the single issue of police brutality to the insanity we see today? In this week's boralogue, John lays out the steps Marxists take that transition from legitimate protests to pulling down statues and defying authority. They create the narrative of oppressors and oppressed and once established, more violent behavior is justified. But if it morphs completely out of control, Marxists will no longer need to justify their revolution to destroy America.
There's an old claim reemerging that Israeli police have trained American law enforcement to mistreat minorities. Is there any truth to this? We speak with the training program's architect, Steven Pomerantz (www.jinsa.org), retired FBI Agent and current Director at JINSA, who says this assertion is false. After 9/11, the U.S. needed to upgrade its national security and counter-terrorism plans, so we learned from the world's foremost expert in those areas.
John, Carol and Producer Steve join forces in a studio roundtable this week discussing the attempted Marxist takeover of America. The fundamental transformation of society is underway, through violence as well as education and media propaganda, and it will not stop at your door or the doors of the Church. What can be done to combat it?
John finishes up with a fireside chat of sorts, covering topics such as cell phone apps that track Covid patients; biometric identifier – is it the mark of the beast?; and using prayer to convey an anti-Christian message.
