John and Producer Steve take over the microphones today, discussing a number of issues. John pushes back on an email he received that claimed he often toots his own horn, while Steve channels his inner old guy in discussing the media's focus on unimportant stories while potentially paradigm changing news is glossed over. They also look at motive versus method when discussing ideology with younger folks and the need to look ahead a few steps with slippery slope issues like the Texas abortion bill and civil asset forfeiture. It's a fun podcast today – John actually gargles water after admitting that a progressive was right about something!
Thomas Jefferson started in the 1790s what was called then the Democrat Party. So why are democrats angry with him now and removing his statue in New York City? Back with us to answer this question is author and historian Daniel Mallock (danielmallock.com). Jefferson was brilliant but he had his faults. Many people say that those in Revolutionary times should have known better and rejected slavery, but it's because of what has happened in our history that resulted in our overcoming slavery. The far left are either ignorant of history due to a failing education system, or they do know history but fundamentally hate this country. Daniel and John look at ways to reach out to these people.
