Re: March LC Thread

The context is completely and utterly fabricated here by you.

Re: March LC Thread

The context is it's Trump - who has 3 white supremacists working for him in the WH. You know the kind of guys whose fanboys are always saying "Why can't we have White History Month"?

Thank you for proving my exact point that context matters and that you have no idea how to apply it.

So am I getting anything out of this month or what? My mother's very Irish sounding maiden name is right on my birth certificate and everything. Even the long-form version.

Maybe you should watch his show, which is on youtube, before calling him a puppet.

Perhaps I'm being presumptive. Have you seen the show? I get the impression you haven't.


Here's his statement regarding why he is doing the show on RT.

Quote:
“The absence of dissident voices from the airwaves, including on public broadcasting that was originally designed to allow those not beholden to the power elites to be heard, has turned the media landscape in the United States into an echo chamber for the powerful and the wealthy,” Hedges said.
...

As Hedges puts it, his show “will examine the effects of the endless wars, mounting inequality and the steady erosion of our civil liberties, and will give voice to those who offer radical solutions, including those proposed by anti-capitalists, and who have been shut out of the national debate by a corporatized press.”

“The constriction of acceptable opinion and debate has eroded the integrity of the press and contributed to the decay of our democracy,” Hedges said. ”This program will be a program where dissident voices will not only be amplified, but celebrated.”
...

"The media landscape in the United States has narrowed the acceptable range of opinion, or been trivialized, to make it little more than a platform for the elites or part of the vast system of entertainment," Hedges said.

"There are few places ‒ RT is one ‒ where critics of corporate capitalism and the American empire can find a voice," he continued. "These voices are vital if we are to find our way back to a democracy. It is for this reason I am doing On Contact with RT."

Re: March LC Thread

AllCows,

I'm not saying he's a puppet, but I'm not buying that really. He could find a spot on Pacifica or something, but they are very poor and I think they barely pay on-air personalities. He should leave RT like the decent lefties all disavowed Stalin back in the day.

Re: March LC Thread

I'm not familiar with Pacifica, so I can't comment on that. I think there's legitimate criticism to be made of him being on RT, and I was critical of his decision myself. But there are pros, just like there are cons, to him being on there, and him leaving would introduce another set of pros and cons.

Wouldn't an actual distraction come from some actual legislation? How have these clowns not rammed a massive throbbing tax cut down our collective throats?
