The Washington Post issued a massive correction on a story from two months ago that, not surprisingly, cast President Donald Trump in a very negative light. The reason for the retraction – it was all a complete lie. John, Carol, and Steve convene the Steel Round Table today to cover the many lies, obfuscations, and false narratives from the mainstream media. In addition to the Post story, they discuss Tucker Carlson's women in the military comments, and Russia's attempts at misleading us. The media wanted us to focus on the phrase 'find the fraud:' it looks like we have.
There is so much flipping and flopping on issues today, it's enough to make a person dizzy. In this week's boralogue, John looks at postmodernist history and why they don't seem to mind changing course on an issue. To them, reality is based on feelings and perceptions, which means words and laws and rules don't have concrete meaning. There are no moral standards, but sooner or later reality becomes real and people will need to think clearly. Today's youth haven't been taught how to do that, so many are lashing out, causing chaos around the country and inconsistently asserting their opinion on important issues.
There are rules for thee, but not for me. Seems to be the woke battle cry today. In this week’s premium boralogue, John looks at the outrage against people and companies for thoughts and policies that were completely reasonable five minutes ago. Your words and deeds will be targeted, but eventually, even your silence will be labeled racism. John breaks down several logical fallacies wrapped up in progressive narratives. When words are weaponized in pursuit of those narratives, truth becomes a casualty.
Businesses and especially college campuses have transitioned into centers of political correctness. On this week's boralogue, John looks at social justice warriors with their name it and shame it games, outrage campaigns, and even violent mobs. For far too long social justice warriors have been successful, but now many are catching on to these modern Brownshirt tactics and are pushing back. We must always choose freedom over those who would try to keep it from us.
We've heard stories of students or adults having MAGA hats ripped off their heads by suddenly enraged progressives. Karen Hurvitz (www.educationwithoutindoctrination.org), Legal Counsel to the group Education Without Indoctrination, joins us to discuss how her client's life went from bad to worse after his MAGA hat was stolen by his teacher who then waged an all-out legal and outrage campaign against him.
After analyzing the coronavirus's impact on the economy, John welcomes Anne Schlafly Cori (www.eagleforum.org), Chairman of the Eagle Forum, who explains why the Equal Rights Amendment, long thought extinct, has made a comeback recently and why, with its manipulative language, it's a bad idea.
John's quote of the week:
"To the relativists who engage in postmodern thought, any affront that challenges their belief is not just something that needs to be debated. It is a threat to the entire system that they believe in. The only thing that keeps this relative, compartmentalized, self-contradicting series of propositions together is each of them telling each other that it really works and anyone that doesn't agree with them is obviously a --- fill in the blank (and there's a long list)."
On this week's extra segment, we dip back a couple of years to February 2018 with John commenting on several audio clips concerning globalism and the long running agenda to obliterate sovereignty.
