Marxism has fully infiltrated the American education system. Is there anything that can be done to stop it? David Schmus (ceai.org), Executive Director of Christian Educators Association International, joins us today. He lists the many leftist programs in school systems such as the transgender agenda and critical race theory. But he says there are many ways to push back. He describes his organization's initiative to bring God into the schools through prayer and a non-offended heart. There is an alternative to teachers' unions and the way things are in schools. We can fight against Marxism in schools – especially if we have God on our side.
Following the incident at the Capitol in January, we began hearing a lot about reeducation camps and deprogramming centers for Trump supporters because they suffered from a supposed psychosis. Sounds an awful lot like what the Soviet Union used to do – and what Communist China does today. Joining us today is Larry Ong (sinoinsider.com), Senior Analyst at Sino Insider, who goes over China's social credit score system, and the CCP's practice of cancelling citizens that don't agree with the party's narrative. Playing a big part in the indoctrination is the media, who, like the communist party, distort the facts to tell their own narrative. Media in the U.S. seem to be mirroring this brainwashing technique.
For years we've been subjected to story after story about collusion. Today, however, the media, Big Tech, and politicians on the Left are colluding to wipe away any person or company who dissents from the woke leftist point of view. Joining us today is Adam Weiss (amworldgroup.com), Founder and CEO of AMW Group, a New York-based PR firm. He looks at how cancel culture is rearing its ugly head far more than it has in the past now that the election is over and President Trump is leaving the White House. He relates his experiences in the public relations arena as well as the collusion behind Parler's removal from the public sphere. The Left is hoping to get back to their version of normal post-Trump and for them, ‘normal' consists of censorship and de-platforming of anyone who dissents from the current woke narrative.
Recently, John was a guest on an Australian show called 'Discernible with Matt Wong' and on today's extended podcast, we play that interview. John covers a variety of topics including speech in a race-focused society, the history of Marxism, the hijacking of racial issues that has led to cancel culture, the detailed steps involved in creating a socialist society and why it has never worked, and the persecution of Christians. John also answers the question of why, when things look so bleak, he continues to fight the good fight against those who would destroy our freedoms.
As he does once a month, John travels to the studios of KYMS radio for an interview with Lee Lancaster. For our Sunday bonus podcast, we play John's appearance from this Friday where he and Lee discuss a variety of topics, including the attacks in France, the tenets of cancel culture, the history of how the media has become so corrupted, the need to stand up for the truth – even if it's unpopular, and of course, an update on the martyred church.
We have seen anti-Semitic attitudes, groups, and ideologies throughout the world, but what goes into the thinking behind it? Dr. Charles Jacobs (peaceandtolerance.org), President of Americans for Peace and Tolerance, joins us to examine why people oppose Israel so virulently but are OK with other countries' atrocities. He also looks at why Jews in the West vote for anti-Semitic politicians, and why the UN and many Western governments seem to have it out for the state of Israel.
Next, we've heard a lot about court packing in the past few weeks since Amy Cony Barrett's nomination and now acceptance to the Supreme Court bench. Mike Berry (firstliberty.org), General Counsel at First Liberty Institute is here to explain what court packing is, why democrats are so up in arms about this right now, and how activist judges torture legal language. It's constitutional warfare – who will come out on top?
John and Producer Steve then sit down to discuss how some far left policies are beginning to or could soon spiral out of control. They look at the far left's attempt to fundamentally transform the country through court packing and eliminating the Electoral College, one-party rule in some states that have literally led to disaster, and woke corporations' critical race theory sessions.
John finishes up the show this week with a sobering and sometimes graphic update on religious persecution, in the countries of China, Pakistan, Egypt, Russia, Nigeria, and Kenya.
How did we ever get to a point where we have such rampant cancel culture in Western civilization? Opening the show this week, John looks at the change in education over the past three decades from logical thinking to consensus thinking. As a result, people have built safe spaces when they are faced with facts antithetical to their worldview. Shaming us isn't working anymore so they have moved on the next step – cancel culture.
What are the consequences of unfettered immigration and the reluctance to identify problems due to political correctness? Christine Douglass-Williams (www.frontpagemag.com), Associate Editor at FrontPage Magazine, joins us to discuss open immigration in her home country of Canada, how certain organizations are able to take advantage of leftist policies, and the possibility of terrorists entering the U.S. along the border with Canada.
John finishes up this week examining two important topics. First, he tackles the economic reality facing the U.S. and the world along with the traps and pitfalls that mark the leadup to a socialist takeover of an economy. Finally, he covers how the climate change narrative is failing after emissions were lowered this year, but at the cost of lives and the economy. It doesn't stop die-hard climate alarmists, though, from doing anything they can to keep the narrative alive.
How did we ever get to a point where we have such rampant cancel culture in Western civilization? On today's podcast, John looks at the change in education over the past three decades from thinking based on logic and fact to thinking based on consensus group think. As a result, some people have built safe spaces to retreat to when they are faced with facts antithetical to their worldview. They tried to shame us by calling us all kinds of names but that isn't working anymore so they have moved on the next step – cancel culture. John gives advice and warnings when dealing with people who have constructed these safe spaces.
When you go against the norms of the far left, there is a chance that you will fall victim to cancel culture. First up this week is Dr. Jeff Myers (www.summit.org), President of Summit Ministries, who reveals his organization's methods to counteract Marxist thought in the classroom. If they're willing to talk, it's possible to find a solution. But in other instances when your grade or your job is on the line, a different strategy may be needed, such as taking an accuser to court. Sometimes though, people get to the point that no matter the circumstance, they just have to say, “I will not sit down. I will not shut up.”
Certainly not one to shut up, John looks at the history of revolutions, the events that led up to them and the reason why they succeed or fail. Logic and reason play a big part. If logic and reason move forward decoupled from God, revolutions always fail. America's revolution coupled logic and reason with morality and we are still here. Basing a government on morals allows more controls on government and more freedoms to the people. That's why cancel culture will ultimately never work.
The terms 'racist' and 'white supremacist' are thrown around constantly in today's public discourse, but does anyone know the true meaning of the words? Rounding out the program this week is Jeff Schoep (www.beyondbarriersusa.org), Founder of Beyond Barriers, who describes his journey from leader of the country's largest neo-Nazi organization for 25 years to an outspoken opponent of hate and shepherd to those wishing to leave extremist groups.
When you go against the norms of the far left, there is a chance that you can discuss the differences with them, but most likely you will fall victim to cancel culture. Dr. Jeff Myers (www.summit.org), President of Summit Ministries is with us today to discuss his organization's methods to counteract Marxist thought in the classroom. Apologizing in the hopes that they will forgive you will still get you canceled.
Dr. Myers asserts that it's best when responding to cancelers not to name call and try to destroy like they do. If they're willing to talk, it's possible to find a solution. But in other instances when your grade or your job is on the line, a different strategy may be needed, such as taking an accuser to court. Sometimes though, people get to the point that no matter the circumstance, they just have to say, "I will not sit down. I will not shut up."
