Rules for thee but not for me. That's the mantra underlying America's new woke belief system. Joining us today is freelance writer and author Larry Eubank (larryeubank.com) to discuss his new article Wokeism: The New American Orthodoxy. He looks at how the laws and rules when applied to radical leftists are ignored, because for them, the woke orthodoxy trumps everything – including the rule of law. But conservatives are expected to live up to those same laws. For every double standard on the surface, there's an undeclared single standard underneath. And that's the orthodoxy.
Misinformation, fake news, possible civil wars, conspiracies – they are all swirling out there. How can you make sense of it all? John and Producer Steve sit down today for a round table discussion. There is a civil war occurring in both political parties between the establishment types and those that want change. There are conspiracy theories surrounding not only the January 6 incident at the Capitol, but also with vaccines. And of course, climate change is creating controversy whenever it's mentioned. John and Steve look at all of this and more on today's podcast.
Sometimes, when your whole world changes and it becomes hard to recognize, it helps to step back and review how we got here. Opening up this week, John looks at the long progressive march through America's institutions for the past century, as well as the change liberalism underwent from classic liberalism to Neo-Marxism. There have been push-backs along the way as non-liberal administrations took the reins. But, as we have seen with the flurry of executive orders from the new Biden administration, policies keep zig-zagging back and forth and nothing ever gets accomplished. John shows us the best way to move forward.
Big Tech, media, and politicians on the Left are colluding to destroy any person or company who dissents from the woke leftist point of view. Joining us is Adam Weiss (amworldgroup.com), founder and CEO of AMW Group, a New York-based PR firm. He looks at how cancel culture is ramping up now that President Trump's tenure has ended. The 'new normal' for Big Tech consists of censorship and de-platforming anyone who doesn't conform to what they deem to be the acceptable narrative.
Many people are fleeing blue areas due to corrupt politicians and horrible policies. Wrapping up the program this week is Mark Pulliam (misruleoflaw.com), owner of the blog site Misrule of Law and resident of a bright red county in Tennessee. He relates his experience of moving from a blue area to a red one, but things are changing even there. People in red areas have gotten inattentive and complacent, allowing leftists to make inroads in an attempt to flip the area blue. Mark offers solutions on how to resist the incoming progressive tide.
Many people are fleeing blue areas due to corrupt politicians and horrible policies. Joining us today is Mark Pulliam (misruleoflaw.com), owner of the blog site Misrule of Law and resident of a bright red county in Tennessee. He relates his experience of living in California and then moving to "the least woke place I could think of." But things are changing even there. People in red areas aren't used to the culture war. As a result, they get inattentive and complacent, allowing leftists to make inroads, whether on county boards or at your local library, in an attempt to flip the area blue. Mark offers solutions on how to resist the incoming progressive tide.
First up this week Peter Hammond (www.frontlinemissionsa.org), Founder and Director of Frontline Fellowship, joins us from South Africa to examine the inner workings of Marxist revolutions and how once the leaders get in power, there is no need to keep around the folks who got them there. He also looks at the psychological warfare that Marxists use to manipulate the masses.
Then we chat with Stanley Kurtz (www.eppc.org), Senior Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, who discusses the history of multiculturalism, the rise in speech codes, and the odd, contradictory concept of strategic essentialism.
John then looks at two streams of toxic thought in the boralogue – that of Marxism and postmodernism. He shows how we came from a solid foundation in America to a near Marxist takeover and contrasts the toxicity of today's popular narratives with that of our Judeo-Christian roots.
We wrap out the show this week with a clip from John's appearance on KYMS radio recently where he and host, Lee Lancaster, discuss a variety of topics including what happens when Marxism comes to your church and the philosophies of mob rule. The full interview will post Sunday for Premium Members.
In 1987 at Stanford University, there were calls for Western Civilization to be done away with. Stanley Kurtz (www.eppc.org), Senior Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, joins us to discuss the history of multiculturalism, the incorporation of Marxism into that narrative, and the increase of speech codes and assertions that everyone is a racist.
Peter Hammond (www.frontlinemissionsa.org), Founder and Director of Frontline Fellowship, joins us from southern Africa on our inaugural daily podcast of Steel of Steel where he examines the inner workings of Marxist revolutions and how once the leaders get in power, there is no need to keep around those folks who got them there.
Peter and John discuss the psychological warfare that Marxists use to convince the masses they should be in power and, once there, brainwash them in order to keep it.
