Today we bring you the conclusion of our 2-part conversation with Evan Sayet (evansayet.com), author and former Hollywood liberal and insider. He continues his thoughts from yesterday, showing that because of the tactics of the woke crowd, many on the left are waking up and leaving. He shares some strategies on how best to talk to these folks. He also points out that the means of bringing the revolution to the world is different with each ideology, including the woke crowd. Finally, he explains why the virulent leftists have to ascribe the monikers of racist and Nazi to those with whom they disagree.
Does history really repeat itself and can we learn from it? David Satter (davidsatter.com), Editorial Author at the Wall Street Journal, joins us to report on his experiences as a journalist in 1970s and '80s Soviet Russia and how it compares to America today. In both eras, media engaged in pushing an ideology instead of reporting the facts. In totalitarian societies, media and others in power threaten to disrupt your future, through cancel culture or other means, forcing people to self-censor. It happened in the Soviet Union. It's beginning to happen here.
Tuesday saw Georgia fall to the democrats and Wednesday saw chaos in our nation's capital. Is there hope for America's future? John, Carol, and Steve sit down for a studio roundtable to look at where we've been and where we could be headed. Just like in the 1770s, the people today are not being represented by their government officials. Is there anything we can do? Will it take a revolution or can we solve things peacefully? It's tough to see but there is hope for the future.
How do globalists go about furthering their agenda? They have a long rolling plan that's easy to spot if you know what to look for. John finishes out the show this week looking at the EU's plan to erode national sovereignty, doing it slowly until their objective is met. And he explains how change agents work and what to look for when they come to your town. Whether it be the EU or Marxists working in this country, gradual pressure is put on us until the pain of leaving their oppressive regime is greater than the pain of caving to their agenda.
Does history really repeat itself? Can we learn from it? David Satter (davidsatter.com), Editorial Author at the Wall Street Journal, joins us to report on his experiences as a journalist in Soviet Russia in the 1970s and 1980s – and compare it to America today. In the Soviet Union, media perpetuated the government narrative so much so that the people knew that news stories weren't true. Today in the U.S., we read or hear a story and immediately think, based on the media outlet, that an ideology is being pushed instead of facts. Also, in totalitarian societies, there is such a threat to disrupt your future, through cancel culture or force, that people self-censor and fall in line. It happened in the Soviet Union. We're seeing it begin to happen here. Can we learn from this in time to stop it?
There are very few if any media outlets and fact-checking websites that aren't beholden to a narrative. It makes reporting all the facts surrounding an issue impossible. On today's podcast, John and Steve look at how both right and left media outlets spin the news to prop up a point of view that only gives you part of the story. So-called "bad" ideas are dismissed as propaganda so that the media's agenda can be furthered. But no one is getting the whole story. The media are now social activists instead of journalists. And when that happens, the truth is always brushed aside.
