Sometimes, when things change and a paradigm shift is upon you, it helps to review how we got to this point. On today's podcast, 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 were right-leaning push-backs with the Republican revolution in 1994 and the Tea Party in 2008. The woke crowd woke up and you began to see "racist!" and "white supremacist" and other epithets emerge, only to grow stronger by the time Donald Trump came on the scene. John offers suggestions on how to overcome the current crisis. It involves understanding what the crisis is and being able to talk to people on the other side and let them know you care. And of course, it always helps to pray for them.
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? Jeff Schoep (www.beyondbarriersusa.org), Founder of Beyond Barriers, joins us today to describe 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 organizations. He discusses how people align themselves with extremist groups to begin with, what his group believed during his tenure, and how he helps rescue people from the cycle of hatred.
