Please stop using the term "birthing person" until you cite me a case where a man gave birth.
One of the most disingenuous political podcasts out in leftist media
fuck the new York times
"I would never think of enlisting in the Army. I would rather live, not die." what an arrogant, ignorant, and snobbish think to say. I have served in the Army for almost 20 years and I too would rather live than die. That is not what differentiates those who choose to serve from those that do not. I listen to The Weeds podcasts to hear intelligent conversations about major issues but that was some sophomoric bullshit.
One of my favorite episodes so far
if black kids are not taking advance courses who's fault is that? not all kids black & white can take advance courses that being said education starts day one. if a kid is failing in school who needs to take charge? the parents.
I don't know any school.that doesn't teach slavery. or teaches whites are better than black people. disagree? show me. we have class privilege over white privilage. why doesn't one black leader come out, write exactly what CRT is, put it on paper & send out press releases? take questions & be open when people disagree with you? people fear change. people do not want to be blamed for someone else failures when they 1. they are having a hard time themselves 2. none of their relatives owned slaves or were slaves. 3. black people want us to listen to them but they refuse to listen to whites, it's ok to call whites names & reduce them to a label you. not vise versa
The most racist people I know voted for Obama. They had hope for change & didn't see a black man. They saw that guy they worked with who was a work friend. Then Fox news went into overdrive.
read this title having not checked the news in two hours and it nearly gave me a heart attack. jeeze.
I'm really confused. how is the argument that we should put aside or differences to take down the powerful, wealthy elites not a class argument?
This podcast contained the best argument I've actually heard thus far to actually vote for Biden, rather than simply against Trump, as a leftist. If Biden is actually non-ideological (rather than ideologically neoliberal which idk), and is forced (and also able) to remove the filibuster, the left wing of the party will be in a position to bargain in congress with the dems for real change. there's a number of assumptions there, but none are too, too crazy. it's at least worth thinking about. certainly more than "we can push him left after he gets into office". the outcome looks the same, but this has an actual mechanism by which it could work. so thank you and good job. you've given me more to think about.
it would be great to get reference to some of the statics and Data discussed
it is broken
man I'm so glad they did this pod. just had this conversation with someone yesterday about the supposed epidemic of child sex trafficking. crazy how people believe this stuff
I like this guy
If Biden picked Warren it would mean a republican governor in Charlie Baker would appoint her successor though right?
FANTASTIC interview and guest. A very illuminating and explanatory discussion about qualified immunity.
Damn, the Biden advertisements at the end were boring AF.
What I don't like about this podcast is that sometimes you guys don't really seem to be having a conversation, rather you seem to be blurting out information and opinions, and not really listening to each other. "Let's see who says the most interesting thing". It gets somewhat abnoxious.
