PRODUCERS NOTE: Some rather important notes about today’s show. First, there is a bit of adult (sailor) language in it. If that offends you, don’t bother listening.
Second, I once had a Program Director who wanted me to always be angry on the air. I hated that, because almost always when passion becomes anger I forget to make my main point, for which I prepared and studied and built around. This show is a great example of that. The title doesn’t match what I end up saying because passion turned to anger and I never got around to it. for that, I apologize because it was – at least in my mind – a pretty good point to have been made. Perhaps I can get back to it later, but there isn’t enough time to redo this one.
There is nothing here that I “walk back” or somehow or another disavow. I do not apologize for it. It just isn’t where I wanted to end up.
I talked a few weeks back about a silly game we used to play in the Navy that has – apparently – been “taken over” by white nationalist groups and consequently today if you play that game, even with no racist intent, you are automatically labeled a racist and guilty of racism and hatred and bigotry. You actually aren’t guilty of anything – except for playing a silly little game – but that no longer matters in today’s “J’accuse” world of one-up gotcha virtue signaling.
Now we get word that Nike, the venerable show company that makes its shoes in Communist China so as to avoid paying US wages and benefits, decided to do something incredibly stupid and frankly, horribly offensive.
A USAF Veteran who served in Kuwait, is arrested after she intervenes in a Valdosta State protest in which students were walking upon a US Flag. Her actions have drawn praise from Veterans and flag supporters. But there is one really big question that has to be asked…
Europe is facing a wave of illegal immigration that has gone barely noticed in the United States. So far 2015 has been a deadly year for illegal immigrants, with more than 1500 peope losing their lives since January attempting to enter Europe. This past week, two incidents have brought renewed attention to the problem. A ship capsized and sank, killing 700, while on a smaller boat, members of the PLRI threw Christians overboard.
A University of California Berkeley Scientist is now saying that science supports what many of us have believed for a long time – that California is actually a desert that had a really wet 150 years.
The Director of the FBI made a verbal slip when he stated that Poland had helped Nazi Germany commit the Holocaust. The American Ambassador in Warsaw was summoned to discuss the Directors Comments. And while the Director was wrong about Poland and Hungary, the rest of his remarks were very relevant. On this day in 1945, the Children of Neuengamme were taken to Bullenhauser Damm, and there they became some of the last victims of the “Final Solution.”
