Black revolutionary socialist organization
Early in 1966, the people of Lowndes County, Alabama formed an all-Black, independent political organization called the Lowndes County Freedom Organization (LCFO). Organized with the support of activists from the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), the LCFO fought the disenfranchisement of Black voters against the palpable threat of white violence. The LCFO was a crucial chapter in the early history of Black Power, providing not only the blueprint for Kwame Ture's theory of Black Power but also the black panther imagery that would inspire Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seale to form the Black Panther Party for Self Defense in Oakland just a few months later. Former SNCC organizers Jennifer Lawson and Courtland Cox join The Marc Steiner Show to offer an oral history of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and the Lowndes County Freedom Organization.Jennifer Lawson joined the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) in 1966 and was elected to its central coordinating committee. She designed the Black Panther symbol and campaign materials for the Lowndes Country Freedom Organization. Lawson continued her civil rights work for several more years before becoming an executive and producer in public television. She currently works with the SNCC Legacy Project to preserve the history of the movement and to encourage young activists to document their stories.Courtland Cox joined SNCC as a student at Howard University in 1960, and appeared as the representative of the organization's central committee at the 1963 March on Washington. He helped organize the 1964 Freedom Summer in Mississippi, and was also one of the organizers of the Lowndes County Freedom Organization. Later in life, he served as Secretary General of the Sixth Pan-African Congress in Tanzania, as well as on the Board of TransAfrica. He was appointed by President Clinton to serve as the Director of the Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) at the U.S. Department of Commerce. He currently serves as board chair of the SNCC Legacy Project.Studio/Post-Production: David HebdenHelp us continue producing The Marc Steiner Show by following us and becoming a monthly sustainer:Donate: https://therealnews.com/donate-pod-mssSign up for our newsletter: https://therealnews.com/nl-pod-stGet The Marc Steiner Show updates: https://therealnews.com/up-pod-stLike us on Facebook: https://facebook.com/therealnewsFollow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/therealnews
A new exhibition on view at Poster House looks at the branding and graphic language of the Black Panther Party, and the historical context that informed how the party went about portraying itself in posters, advertisements, and slogans. Black Power to Black People: Branding the Black Panther Party features 37 works from the years 1932 to 1980, with newspaper clippings, campaign posters, and images of Party leaders. Curator Es-pranza Humphrey tells us more about the history and the exhibition, which is on view until September 10. This segment is guest-hosted by Tiffany Hanssen.
People know about Rosa Parks' civil disobedience and her refusal to sit in the back of the bus, but a new documentary examines her lifelong activism, including her support of organizations like the Black Panther Party. We speak to director Yoruba Richen about "The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks."
Today's episode features a very special guest, Reverend Cheryl Dawson. Sister Dawson is a former member of the Black Panther Party and has since continued to advocate for the liberation of Black people (more specifically Black women) by serving women in prison and women across the globe. During this impromptu story time, she takes us through her life yet focusing mainly on the needs of the women that are entangled in the criminal legal system - her story and theirs beautifully enmeshed into one. As she continues to fight for a brighter future for the women she has been called to minister to, Reverend Dawson needs our help to keep the work alive and get the word out which is what this episode is meant to do. I am in awe of her spirit, fervor and tenacity when it comes to her activism after all these years. And I encourage each of you to get connect with her or at the very least be inspired to take after her example by just reaching out to the next person you come across in need. It can look as simple as a friendly smile to say I see you or sharing what you have with the next person. Speaking of going out and doing for others, that brings me to my call to action. First, make sure to follow Sister Dawson on Instagram. Also, make sure to pickup and share your thoughts with me on the book Comrade Sisters which you can purchase here.

My name is Austin Adams, and thank you so much for listening today. We are going to be touching on some wild wildness going on across the country right now, including 61% of all voters, not just Republican, but all voters believe that the FBI conducted a false flag against its own people on January 6th by using Agent Provocateurs. Crazy. I, I, I did not expect the left to agree with that, but apparently they're starting to come around and, and so we'll go through some evidence of that. We'll talk about the implications of society as a whole, agreeing with that point as, as a, as a majority at this point, and then we'll go into some historical. Historical, uh, coincidences, I guess not coincidence, but parallels, , of other events which kind of look eerily similar to that, including the governor Whitmer situation, if you haven't heard about that one. And then some all the way dating back to the sixties. , we're also going to talk about a new patent, which was filed this week by Ford, which would allow them to basically take over your car, shut down your air conditioning, eliminate your ability to roll down your windows, and actually drive itself to an impound lot if you find yourself behind on your payment. So we'll talk about that, which is pretty crazy in and of itself. We are also going to dive into the recent situation, uh, regarding Spain. Basically legalizing beast. I didn't expect that to be out in today's episode, did you? ? So we will talk about that. The actual law in legislation that was passed as a result, to make that happen. And then last but not least, our final topic of today, and the one that we'll touch on the longest is going to be a revelation that actually was passed to me by my wife regarding Disney now. It's pretty dark. It, it's probably darker than the other situations that we've heard of combined. It's, it's pretty crazy and I don't think it's anything that anybody has touched on at this point. And, uh, we'll talk about all of it. All right now, in the meantime, Go ahead and hit that subscribe button. It would make me feel all fuzzy inside. It would make me feel so good.

You'll get all the clips, articles, links, videos, all of it directly to your email every single week. And, you'll be able to get all the articles that I wrote up surrounding these topics for you. So Austin Adams dot.com, that's all I got. The very first article that we're gonna be talking on today is going to be that 61% of all American voters believe that the FBI conducted a false flag against its own people on January 6th by using Agent Provocateurs. You heard that right? 61% of American voters. Now, that's not 61% of Republican voters. That's 61% of all voters, liberal conservative. Middle of the road, libertarian, uh, what were those, uh, people who, I don't know, green party, whatever the hell you, you believe in whichever of these religious sex you find yourselves in 61%. A majority, a vast majority. It's not 51%. It's an astonishing 10% more than being split down the middle. Believe that the FBI in the American government set up the American people to cause this coup like situation at the Capitol right now. There's some things that we saw originally that led us to believe this. I think if you've been following me for a while, you know, I've done whole sections of this show in, in portions of this on Ray. And maybe I'll talk about him a little bit later, but Ray Eps is at the epicenter of all of this. And then you go all the way back to Ted Cruz questioning the fbi. And I believe it was like the head of the department or one of one of those higher up people. This woman who sat there without answering a single question about this would not give a straight answer at all. But now we have the majority of the country believing that our own government is willing to set us up to cause a violent reaction, just to get, I don't know, some, some pushback or belief surrounding Joe Biden or against President Trump. And this should tell you everything that you need to know about the Trump presidency. You saw all of the mainstream media just going after him, going after him, and now we know, or at least 61% of the American populists believe that our own government, our own government, put people in harm's way and had Ashley Babbitt killed in the Capitol building as a result. of their own Provo Pro Provocation. Is that a word? Provocation? Provocate Provo. Provocation . And you go back to all the clips. They still will not release the video footage. Still will not release the video footage. How many, how many years? January, 2021. January 6th. We are now two years past this event, and they have 80,000 hours of footage and they won't release it. I wonder why. Maybe because it shows police officers letting people in with waving arms, removing barricades, unlocking doors. Maybe because it shows the tragic death of Ashley Babbitt in a way that isn't helpful to the FBI's agenda or Biden's agenda. Maybe. So here's the evidence, or, well, maybe not the evidence, but here's the article. Explosive new polling data has just been released and it has the potential to shake the very foundations of the American democracy. According to the latest Rasmus employee, stunning, 61% of likely voters, including 50 per 57% of Democrats believe that federal agents play a role in inciting the Capitol riot of January 6th and 2021. This means that a majority of Americans believe that their own government may have had a hand in one of the most traumatic events in recent American history, and maybe not traumatic, but dramatic might be the more P likely of terms. The poll respondents, how likely it is it that undercover government agents helped provoke the Capitol riot, and the results are shocking. Of those surveyed, 39% said very likely, 22% said somewhat likely. That means a grand total of 61% of likely voters believe that federal agents played a role. The poll also revealed that 59% of men and 63% of women believed that federal agents had helped provoke the capital riot. This majority of voters who believed the capital riot was not simply a natural occurrence breaks down among political party affiliations as well. 57% of Democrats said it is either very likely 34%, well, 34% total. 57% of Democrats said it is either very likely or somewhat likely, very likely being 34%, somewhat likely being 23%. While Republicans, the numbers are 51% said very likely, 19% said somewhat likely. Wow, that's pretty crazy. Many across the media have already questioned the idea that Trump supporters watching then President Donald Trump had taken it upon themselves with no provocation. Hey, provocation, this award to walk from the ellipse of the capitol and demand entry. Tucker Carlson is one of the many who stated his belief based on photos and eyewitness accounts that federal agents have been encouraging Trump supporters to enter the Capitol building. Going back to Ray Abs, it's, we're going into the Capitol. You remember that video into the Capitol. Tomorrow we're going into the capitol. Him sitting there inciting these people while everybody around him points their finger and mocks him going, fed, fed, fed, fed, fed, pointing at him, calling out in the moment. We didn't need two years to decide this. The people that were there and saw this man saying we're gonna go into the capitol, knew immediately, knew immediately that he was a federal agent, trying to provoke them into some sort of riot. They were priming the public, priming the people that were around there the day before this happened to cause this to happen. And again, we have an American veteran, Ashley Babin, who died as a result of this provocation. Goes on to say that this idea that the government may have initiated the false flag against itself is dangerous to the overall belief in American democracy. History has shown that when the public loses face in their government institutions, it can lead to destabilize, destabilization, and unrest. The Rassmuson Poll also asked likely voters whether they thought that the hours of surveillance footage captured on the day should be released to the public. An overwhelming majority of American likely voters, 80% total believe it's important that the footage be released while majority of both parties weighing in that the public has the right to see the footage. Now, what does that other 20% even mean at this point, if you're a 20% saying that we shouldn't release the videos, you're literally just showing your cards that you are somebody who is on the side of Big Daddy government and big brother wanting to like just completely. Like what is it? Ossify yourself like completely. Uh, like put yourself in this cocoon of like against the general world saying that I don't care what the facts are, I don't care what the reality is. My reality is Trump bad man, everybody else, good man. And everything that he does is bad and everything. And it doesn't matter whether he did it or not. It doesn't matter whether our government set him up or not. I don't care. Right? That's what that 20% shows me. The latest polling data adds to a long list of historic examples where the government has used agent provocateurs to incite events from the 10 of 12 F B I agents. We recall this with Governor Whitmer who were involved in the kidnapping of Governor Whitmer to the infamous. COINTEL Pro program run by the FBI in the 1960s and seventies, which we'll get into in a second. There are plenty of instances where the government has used underhanded tactics to achieve its goals. The American people have a right to know what really happened on January 6th, whether the government was involved in any way. Now, that brings up a big issue, right when, when majority of the country, majority of the country believes that our own government inside today riot into our most, like one of the most protected government institutions in the world, one of the most symbolic buildings we have as an American institution. Our own government could have potentially staged this. At least 61% of people believe that. Now, again, what does that mean for our nation when you no longer believe in election? When you no longer believe that our own government has our best interest in mind, when you believe that they will actively incite political unrest in riots, open doors for you to make it happen, and uncaring murder an American veteran, for the sake of your own agenda, the American people are going to start to not believe in this government institution anymore. And what happens? What do we know that happens when, when places like Afghanistan, places like Iraq, places like Mexico, when we have these, these ideas that the, the system no longer works, right? It's rotten from the core, rotten for the structural foundation of our nation is rotten down to its structure, down to down to the, the studs that are holding up the walls riddled with corruption. If you can no longer have a vote or a say in who goes into office, and now all of a sudden we find yourselves with an, I don't know, what is he, 85 years old, blubbering, dementia ridden man who's embarrassing our country at every single turn. When you no longer believe in the fabric of democracy, when you no longer believe that your vote has a a meaning, and no matter what you do, how many people you talk to, how many people actually vote that it will never go the way that you want it to. It'll go the way that the elites want it to. We will find ourselves in historically very violent, unsettled public discourse, which is absolutely not where I wanna see this nation go. But historically, that's what happens, right? When you can no longer vote to use your voice, that's where it. Right, and that's where this will go. Unfortunately, as we thi see things progress, right? If these things continue this way, and the American people can no longer have any, any belief in the people who are running this country, the people behind the curtain, or at least they, we, they pull back the curtain like they have already. And we see that companies and organizations like BlackRock, like Vanguard are actually running the show. People like the World Economic Forum in Clause Schwab, when we know now for sure that the only people that matter, the only people that have a vote are the ones who have a corporation or a wealth management fund large enough to put candidates in place like George Soros, like Klaus Schwab. Those are the people who have a real vote. Now you have the, the organizations that are being ran by those types of people that are being funded by those types of people that are being put in positions of power or, or at least running and managing those people like the puppeteers of the world. Who are operating these FBIs, these three letter organizations, when we know that that's what's going on. We have things that happen like assassinations of presidents, which we are fairly positive at this point. Otherwise, why wouldn't you release the records that they conducted those types of operations? Why should we believe in their government right now? Let's go into the COINTELPRO program or counterintelligence program, which was a secret and illegal program ran by the Federal Bureau of Investigation from the fifties to the seventies. Its primary aim was to disrupt and dismantle political organizations that the government considered a threat to national security, particularly those associated with civil rights, anti-war in radical leftist movements. The PRO program was launched in 1956 under F FBI director J Igar Hoover, and operated in secrecy for many years. The F B I used a variety of tactics to target groups and individuals, including wiretapping mail fraud. Harassment. The Bureau also used infiltrators and agent provocateurs to create divisions within groups and incite violent confrontations. The Conor Intelligent Program's primary targets were civil rights and anti-war activists, as well as groups that advocated for racial equality in the rights of marginalized communities. The program worked to disrupt and discredit these groups by spreading false information, infiltrating their organizations, and using informants to sow distrust and create divisions. So now we want to think that that was so long ago, right? Oh, it's the sixties and the seventies, right? Oh, they would never do that now, would they? How wild. How wild is it that that's where we found ourselves today is that we, we just think the government has all the sudden changed. Right? And, and we see this with people like, you know, is, is it any coincidence that people like John Lennon, people like Bob Marley, people like Jimmy Hendrix, people like the list goes on and on and on of people who randomly died at a young age. And generally it was people who were speaking out against the government, right? John Lennon, anti-war, Bob Marley, anti-war. Right. Speaking out against the, the, um, you know, accreditation or of, or, or for racial equality. Right. People like, uh, people like Martin Luther King. Hmm. Right. All along the same time. You think all those people just suddenly. From natural causes. Right. You think our government didn't have a hand in assassinating some of the single largest and, and biggest opponents and, and dissidents of the public narrative during a time of war that was for the military industrial complex. Do you think that there's not enough money involved in the military industrial complex that they wouldn't do something like that? One of the most infamous pro examples of this was its targeting of the Black Panther Party. The FBI's efforts to disrupt the Panthers included the use of informants, wiretaps, and smear campaigns. The bureau also used undercover agents to incite violent confrontations between the panthers and other groups, including police. The FBI's actions were illegal and violated the civil rights of countless individuals and groups. The program was eventually exposed in the 1970s, and many of its tactics were officially deemed unconstitutional. However, the damage has already been done and many civil rights and anti-war activists were subjected to harassment. And persecution by the government, not to mention potentially assassinations. It was a dark chapter in the American history that serves as a reminder of the dangers of unchecked government power. The program's tactics were illegal and violated. The civil rights of countless individuals and its legacy still resonates today and the ongoing struggle for social justice and political freedom. This should spark complete outrage from the entire country. All right, so that's to me, the fact that 61% of people all agree. That's one of the only things that we're gonna get a majority agreement on from the country right now. 61% of poli people believe the FBI set up January 6th. All right, now let's move on. Okay, so the next topic that we're gonna touch on is going to be that for. Motor company has now put a patent in to be able to surveil you. Shut down your vehicle, turn off your air conditioning, everything in between. If you get behind on the on the car payment, big Brother is watching you and now he can take your car too. Ford Motor Company has applied for a patent on a new technology. It says that would allow them to remotely repossess your car if you failed to make a payment. Just, just a payment. The proposed system would give owners a warning about a mis payment before disabling certain features such as gps, air conditioning and the radio. But if you continue to neglect your payments, the car can then lock you out of it and drive itself autonomously to an impound. What that is the craziest, do you remember the movie? It was a Disney movie called, uh, what was it, like Smart Home or, uh, gosh, what was it? Pretty sure it was something like Smart Home. It was like this exact scenario. It didn't have to do with payments, but it was like basically the, this ai uh, you know, hologram of a woman was the, uh, was the manifestation of the house's technology and the, the house saw these people doing things that it didn't like. So it locked, it went into lockdown mode and they couldn't even leave their own house. Right. It it. So we'll go into that analogy a little bit further in a minute cause I think that's an interesting one. Um, but Ford's patent application states that the lockdown feature could be lifted momentarily in case of an emergency to allow the vehicle to travel to a medical facility. But it also proposes a possible caveat where delinquent owners working toward clearing their balance would have their car locked only on weekends to allow them to go to work and earning income to make payments toward their vehicles. Could you imagine your daddy, corporate daddy is now going to take your keys on the weekend and not allow you to drive your car, which you purchased it, and own , at least I'll own the loan on. Um, if you miss a payment, this life is getting crazy, this type of surveillance. Base lending, it says, is an infringement on personal privacy and raises serious concerns about the growing trends toward connected vehicles in electric cars. As cars become increasingly digital and reliant on technology, there is a greater risk that our personal information and rights will be compromised. According to Ford, the system is designed to solve the issue of uncooperative owners who attempt to impede the repossession operation and can lead to confrontations. But this type of technology could also be used to target vulnerable individuals who may be struggling to make payments in face losing their cars, which is often a critical lifeline for Americans. The patent application filed in August of 2021 was formally published last week for public review. A company spokesperson said the patent submitted as a normal course of business. They said, but they aren't necessarily an indication of new business or product plans. Yeah, okay. We believe you Ford. Regardless of Ford's intentions, this type of technology is a clear example of how movement towards connected vehicles and electric cars is going to inherently mean more technology that only infringes further on personal rights. We must remain vigilant and advocate for stronger privacy protections to ensure that our personal information and freedom are not compromised by these new technologies. Okay, so think of it like this. Compare it to your house like we talked earlier, right? Imagine coming home after a long day and find that your fridge, TV, and air conditioning have all been disabled. , because you're behind on a house payment, right? Imagine sweating being in 90 degree heat in Arizona, 110 degrees outside, and they're just. Making you lose weight every minute because you can't make your payment. Like is it not enough that you're behind the payment anymore? Is it not enough that you have the shame of, of creditors calling you or getting the potential of your car, getting repossessed or feeling like you, that it is so wild to me that they want to shame you to the point where they will lock your windows, turn, not allow you to listen to the radio and disable your car on weekends because you can't make a payment. Shame on you. So if we apply the same logic to homes, we can see that a future where our appliances, electronics, and even doors could be locked, right? Your ba, let's say you have a patio, they no longer want your patio door to work. So you gotta walk out the front door and walk all the way around to your back patio. right? You can no longer use the second bathroom. You all gotta use the first bathroom. Oh, and by the way, we're gonna lock the other three rooms in your house and just allow you access to one room. You can all sleep on the floor there. We're not letting you in. Right? All the amenities that come with that home that you purchased right now, think of who this is targeting, right? This is targeting low income. This is targeting ar areas of people who are, you know, going to get into these types of loans unknowingly or without the ability to make these payments. This is gonna target a, a majority of, of minority communities, which are historically in these communities where they're having more difficulties financially, right? Statistically and factually. That's true. And so this is going to be targeting them specifically to do things like this, right? It's not just being limited to cars in the future, right? You can limit this to everything. You can limit this to your cell phone, right? Imagine having everything on your phone, disabled, all of the apps, all of your social media, all all of the stuff besides phone calls to Verizon, to, to your, you know, mom and your dad into 9 1 1 because you're behind on, on a payment. I guess Verizon kind of already does that, right? If you miss a payment for long enough, they only allow you to make a phone call, but you can still connect to wifi, right? So you still have access to all those things, right? They're just not gonna pay for you to go do. It's like if they, I don't know, some analogy with gas or like charging, I don't know. Um, but yeah, just, just think of all the applications. Right there. There's so many ways that this smart technologies, this surveillance big brother technology can be utilized in the future and, and that is a future that I don't want to be a part of. I want to get in a car and press down the gas, and I want gas to be siphoned and I want it to do whatever freaking magic that happens in an engine. There's probably some mechanics listening to this that just want to shake me for not knowing exactly how that works. I want a combustion engine bitch, and I want to be able to put gas in it from the earth that was mined in Saudi Arabia or from some foreign land, or from Canada or Alaska. I want to put liquid into it, and I want to drive by a government building with my middle finger up. That's what I wanna do because there's nothing you can do to stop me from moving. To stop me from driving my vehicle from, from freedom of transportation. And that's what you're gonna find. And we did our last episode on smart cities, right? 15 minute cities is what they're called. And this is another piece of that, right? They don't want you to have vehicles. They want you to own nothing and be happy about it, right? They don't want you to have the freedom of transportation. They don't even want you to be able to drive 15 minutes away. Well, 16, right? They don't want you to have that freedom. They don't want you to have any freedom. Not unless daddy government or daddy corporation, which is truly what daddy government is, has a say so in it, right? And, and, and what we're finding now is like all the people that you know, I am, I am absolutely for capitalism. What we are now is not capitalism. What we are now is corporatism, right? Our government, our institutions, our colleges, our voting processes, our candidates, our. education systems are media, corporations. Our news, the, the shows that your children watch are all owned by corporations who have corporate interests, right? And I've talked about this before. When it comes to corporations, a corporation is a living, breathing entity, right? At least once it gets shareholders, when it's a business, once it, once, it's a, a small business and it goes to a PORs, a, a, a position where it's publicly traded, where there's board members and the CEO who only acts out the po the the needs of the board members. And when they don't, they get removed and kicked out and the new CEO comes in. When you get to a point where a business goes away from having a leader who is truly at the helm, where it is ran by board members, it loses its humanity. It no longer has a moral compass. The only compass it has is off of profitability. , right? So when you have a corporation that has to determine whether or not it should, I don't know, release some type of hmm. Virus so that it can make billions in profits, that doesn't seem like a bad business model to the board members who are just trying to make a profit whose CEO has to enact those decisions or fear being removed from their multimillion dollar position, right? That the entity only thrives off of profitability. It doesn't thrive off of helping humanity. It doesn't thrive off of giving, giving to the needy. It doesn't thrive off of educating the public. It doesn't thrive off of any of these things. It, it thrives off of profitability, right? And profitability is off of the, generally, off of the detriment in, in many cases when it comes from a corporation. To society, right? When we look at things like the, the tactics that were used by cigarette companies back in the eighties and seventies and even early nineties, right? Like when we look at the ways that they lobbied physicians to use their name and say that this is the doctor recommended cigarette, try Merl Burrow Red. Recommended by two out three doctors. Little did you know, they surveyed three doctors, two of which they paid $5 million for that advertisement, right? When you have all these black hat little marketing tactics that drive profitability ran by the ceo, who trickles down to the to, to everybody in between, that's all based off profitability that that loses its moral compass, right? There's no longer somebody there to go, I don't like where this is going, and if they feel that way, they can't say it because the second they say it, in an organization where it's ran by board members and not a leader with a moral compass, it loses all of that humanity to it. It has to continue to thrive off of more profitability. Now, the other thing is growth, right? A company has to continually grow no matter what. When you have a company like Pfizer who made billions of dollars off of their vaccine, . You think next year they're gonna have a 30% drop in revenue and their board members and shareholders are gonna be okay with that? No. The bar has been set and now it has to be exceeded every single year. Or it's a loss or else their share, their stock price goes down and they can't have that. So what do they do? Again? Record year record numbers, record profits for everybody involved in the company, you know, except the employees, the people who did the work, and also humanity, who so happens to die when we profit so much money. But you know, let's forget that, you know, not to mention the Project Veritas video, where they actually said that they were actively working on messing with Coronaviruses intentionally to potentially put out vaccines preemptively. Hmm. It doesn't stop at Ford Motor Company folks. Does not stop there. All right. Now the next thing that we're gonna talk about is going to be that Spain. I can't even get this one out. I, this is so bizarre to me. I, it's, it's so bizarre to me that this is a conversation that I'm having to have in the bizarre move. The Spanish Parliament has approved a new animal welfare law that essentially legalizes bestiality in Spain. They pass legislation that legalizes bestiality, but there's a caveat as long as the animal doesn't get hurt too badly. Yeah, yeah, I heard that. Right. It's now perfectly legal to have sex with an animal in Spain. As long as you don't. To bring them to the vet afterwards. , according to a new law, if you're caught in the act of sexually exploiting an animal, they don't req that and they don't require veterinary treatment. You won't face any criminal charges, right? Who needs consent when you got a nice legal loophole to screw your dog? Now, it's not just the fact that bestiality is now technically legal, that's so shocking. In this case, it's the fact that the law was supported by Spain's Minister of Social Rights and 23 Agenda. That's their title, supporter, Spain's Minister of Social Rights, and 2030 Agenda. That's the title of this person. So if that tells you anything about where this is going, and this person's name is Ian Valara Ortega. I don't know if I pronounce that right, but it's probably better than you would've done . Let's be honest. I. Let's, like seriously, what kind of world are we living in? Were our government actively, not our government, but the Spain government, maybe they're a little freakier over there, but actively advocates for animal abuse. Now, of course, like almost every other country, bestiality was previously illegal in Spain with hefty penalties for anybody caught in engaging in this disgusting act. But the new welfare law reforms the penal code and deletes the sexual exploitation of animals language from the code. So imagine that they had a vote on this. They sat down as a group and decided that they wanted to be able to have sex with animals . So they actively removed exploitation. It deleted the sexual exploitation language from the code. Right. In the year 2023, we are actively having to fight for the basic rights of animals, not to be raped by its owners, not even its owners. You could probably, I mean, I wonder if we're gonna see a very large uptake in uptick in Spain, farmers, . Like all of a sudden people are just having a tremendous amount of livestock and donkeys, . Now, um, this a, you know, it, it's so crazy. A animal cannot consent to a sexual act. I don't know why I have to say that. Right? But an animal cannot consent, right? They don't speak English right now. How, how, how soon until we start seeing brothels full of horses and dogs and whatever else is good dolphins aren't dolphins like supposed to be? I'm pretty sure there's like, Some accounts were dolphins were like raping people in, in the ocean where they would like, that's a highly reported thing where like women are in the ocean and, uh, dolphins, like, I'm pretty sure there was a woman who actually like, had a dolphin boyfriend that was like a trainer or something that got fired for having sex with this dolphin so often So maybe there's something to this. Maybe we're gonna find that Spain just is such a happier country. Maybe we'll find that, I don't know hu human rape statistics go down, but that I highly doubt it. Right? We're gonna see a whole market that's surrounding which, which horses? The prettiest. They're gonna start putting lipstick on horses at, at auctions. Right. How, how, how, how weird that we're even having this discussion right now. And here's the better answer to this, is there's absolutely nobody who's going to have something happen to the animal that they did this to, and then actively go seek out a vet to correct the issue. Like, Hey, sorry, I was. Having sex with my cat now it has this weird kink in its neck and it only meow is backwards. Uh, , I don't know. Right? And you're gonna have some weirdo sicko specifically just having a farm in the back of his house so he can have his way with all of these animals in Spain. Now you don't think that that's gonna be a thing, but this somebody somewhere in Spain is gonna, he's gonna be that guy Okay? Now I don't know what else to talk about on that, other than the fact that I am utterly shocked. Utterly, get it. didn't even have that one written down, folks. All right. Now the last and final topic for the day is going to be. probably one of the darker things that we've talked about here, right? This is dark Disney is grooming our children, and the is far worse than you could have ever imagined. We're not talking about Baymax and tampons. We're not talking about like Luna Moon, the superhero and pronouns. We're not talking about the pride family pushing critical race theory. All right. Are you, are you ready to have your childhood ruined? Because this doesn't just encompass the new and up and coming shows. This isn't the new liberal woke Disney. This is a theme that has woven through the fabric of almost every TV show and movie that has come out of Disney since we were kids and even before that. All right, are you ready? Now my wife came to me with this realization on one of our children's shows that they were watching, which they will never watch again. All right. My wife came to me and she said something weird that I didn't realize before is it seems like Disney has an overwhelming amount of TV shows where the child keeps a secret from their parent and confides in their uncle. All right? So I took that information and ran with it. After running a comprehensive analysis of all Disney shows, popular AI Chatbot chat, G P t concluded, concluded that 40. Of TV shows on Disney feature, a storyline where the child keeps a secret from their parents and tells it to their uncle. Let me be clear. This is not just some lame plot theme. This is a sinister grooming tactic that every single parent and human should be outraged about. This is absolutely disgusting. Okay, I have 28 examples of this in front of me, and I will read them all off for you. Okay. I'll read them quickly and then I'll go into the details. Lizzie McGuire, Kim. Possible Austin and Allie. Shake it up. Good luck, Charlie. The sweet life of Zach and Cody. Wizards of Waverly Place, gravity Falls, Finns and Ferb Big City Gardens, the proud family, the Emperor's New School. Lilo and Stitch. The series Tangled. The series, Casey Undercover, stuck in the middle. Sydnee to the Max Bunked, the Sweet Life of Zach and Cody. Girl Meets World. Raven's Home Live in Madie. Jesse, good luck, Charlie, Austin and Allian. Those are just some of the shows that were pointed out by chat, G B T, just some of them. There was almost a hundred TV shows that I got to point this common theme out for, and it equaled, according to this AI technology, 30 to 40% of the TV shows had a theme to it, including this. Now, I'll walk you through this. I'll just give you some really, really brief overviews of these TV shows. Um, It's quite alarming. All right, here's Lizzie McGuire. Lizzie McGuire confides in her uncle David Gordon about her struggles in school and her crush on the classmate Ethan. Instead of her parents, Kim possible keeps her secret life as a teenage spy, a secret from her parents and confides in her uncle, who is also a former spy Austin thee. Allie Dawson confides in her uncle Barry about her stage fright and her dreams of becoming a songwriter. Rocky Blue from Shake It Up Confides in her uncle Louis about her dance career. Good luck Charlie. Um, Teddy Duncan confides in her uncle Mel about her desire to become a writer and a secret video diary project, the Sweet Life of Zach and Cody. Cody Martin confides in his uncle Aristotle about his fear of performing despite being an aspiring magician, wizards of Waverly place. Alex often confides in her uncle, who is a wizard and often own. Erin owns a magic shop. Finns and Ferb keep their invention secret from their parents, but occasionally confide in their Uncle Lawrence. Big city Greens. Cricket green often keeps secrets from his parents and confides in his laid back and adventurous. Uncle Bill, the Proud Family, proud Penny Proud keeps secrets from her parents and confides in her uncle, her uncle Bobby, the Emperor's New School. Cusco keeps his status as an emperor secret from his parents and confides in his cool and adventurous Uncle Pacha. Lilo and Stitch keep their experiment secret from her older sister and confide in their alien Uncle Jamba Rapunzel from Tangled. The series often keeps her secrets from her parents and confides in their adventurers and supportive father-in-law. The captain of the Guards, Casey Undercover Teenage Spy, who keeps her secrets from other parent or from her parents, and confides in her uncle, who of also happens to be her handle. Uh, stuck in the middle, Sidney to the max. All of these are the same story. All of them. They keep something from their parents and they tell their uncle, right? Jesse, Emma Ross keeps a secret from her parents and confides in her uncle Caleb. Good luck. Charlie Teddy Duncan keeps a secret from her parents and confides in her uncle Mel Austin and Allie. Allie Dawson keeps a secret from her parents and confides in her uncle Barry. All of these shows are grooming your child to hold a secret from you and to confide in a male figure in your family. Now, I wish this was a world where this wasn't a problem. I wish this was a world we're statistically speaking that those individuals, that they're grooming your child to confide in, to hold secrets actively from you isn't the individual who's most likely to assault your child sexually. I wish that was not the case. I wish Disney could have shows about confiding in your uncle and holding secrets from your parents. Make it not a bad thing, but I also want to highlight the fact that there is virtually zero shows where the same exact scenario is happening with ant. You cannot 0.1 out, cannot find one. What kind of message does this send young girls? What kind of message does this tell young boys? Right? Does it, it tells them that it's okay to have a secret with your uncle and to keep it from your parents. It tells them that being groomed is a normal part of growing up. Now, this isn't to take away from the agenda of pushing transgenderism onto your children. This isn't to take away from the agenda of sexualizing, hyper sexualizing your children. This isn't going to take away from the agenda where there was a show recently that I haven't heard anybody talk about this one from Disney. Haven't heard this yet. There's a show called like Luna Moon or something like that, some moon TV show where this girl is sitting in front of a chess, uh, chess robot on the floor, like doing this cool scene where she's playing chess with this robot. And the robot goes, my name is something robot, and my pronouns are she, her pronouns like, no bitch, you're a robot. You don't get pronouns, but they're grooming your child to believe that these things are okay. You go back to the, the, the head of Disney in their internal meetings who came out on a Zoom call and said, I am pushing this LGBTQ qia a plus element o p agenda on an every single PO way that I can, right? You see it in Turning Red. You see it in the Baymax series. You see it in like this Luna show. You see it all across the new Disney movies, almost every single one of 'em, stranger Worlds. You see it in all of them and she's gloating about it, gloating about it. Now these are not mistakes, right? This is not a fun little plot twist, right? This is a concerted effort to groom our children concerted effort. This is intentional programming that leads to extremely dangerous positions for your child to find themselves in, to believe that it's normalized, to believe that it's okay to keep a secret from you because they didn't think of that before, until they get programmed by Disney. To think that it's cool to keep a secret from your parents, and it gets even darker when we get into the statistics of this one in nine young girls, one in nine girls experience sexual abuse at the hands of an adult. One in 53 boys experienced sexual abuse at the hands of an adult, more than 10. Of the young girls who watch these Disney shows will have been sexually assaulted in their lifetime, more than 10%. One out of every 10 girls who watches this Disney show where they make it seem okay to keep a secret from your parents and confide in your cool uncle will have been groomed to believe that that's acceptable, groomed to believe that it's acceptable to hide something from your parents and confide in your uncle more than 10%. In more than 40% of the show. 30 to 40% of the shows has a similar theme. The N S V R C reports that 93% of child sexual abuse victims know their abuser. 93% of abuse, abuse children know their abuser. Almost a hundred percent, 34% of the perpetrators being family members and 60% being acquaintances or other trusted individuals. 34% out of the one out of nine girls are assaulted by their family member, and Disney thinks it's cute to groom them to keep secrets from their parents and confide in their uncle. Now, here's my question to you. Do we really want to give these predators a helping hand by normalizing secrets, keeping secrets from your parents, confiding in your uncle, right? This is a global issue. This is not just in the United States, right? And, and, and there's been calls for boycotts and I even, I am guilty. Of keeping Disney Plus for my children, even through Turning Red, even through Baymax, all the shit that I talked about, that even I am guilty of maintaining my Disney plus subscription. Until today, I will never in my house have a Disney plus subscription again. Now that I know that my children were actively being groomed by Disney to hold a secret from me as her dad and to confide in some other random male counterpart as a result, and I ask you to join me, I hope that hashtag boycott Disney goes like wildfire around the internet. Once this is found out, I cannot imagine that it. How else if, if this is not where you draw the line, where do you draw it? If it's not where they groom your child into believing that being assaulted and holding a secret from you is the norm, then what is it? What the fuck is it? If it's not that, what is it? How does that not cause you to cancel your subscription? Right? I don't care. Stream it. I'll give you five websites to do it with. Stream it, but don't give 'em your money. We need to send a clear, clear picture to corporations like Disney that we are absolutely not going to continue to allow you to program our children. For your disgustingly dark purposes. Protect your children. Get them away from these programs that are actively grooming them, right? It is your job as a parent to mitigate risk if nothing else, right? Protect them, house them, feed them. Mitigate risk. If you have children and you decide to maintain a Disney plus subscription after finding this out, you got some soul search and to do, or you're just a complete optimist who, who does not live in a real world where more than 10% of young girls, 10% of girls in their lifetime will be assaulted. And 94% of the time they will know the person that did it. That is a disgusting reality, and again, I wish they could have this theme and I wish they could push this all they want and not have it have a negative outcome and not have it be based in the fact that there's a very high like. that your child will go through something and now think that it is acceptable to maintain that secrecy from you. Right? And that's what you have to understand about programming, right? That's what you have to understand about the, the, the way that you, if it is nothing else, you take a young baby and that baby goes from having a blank slate, right? Just think of it like a, if you think of it from like a programming perspective, I don't know how to program, so maybe I'm talking outta my ass, but, but if you look at it from that perspective, you have to teach that child how to operate in this world, right? You gotta put all of the, all of the zeros and the ones in there so that they know not to touch a hot fire, right? And some of that programming's built in, but some of it can be manipulated. and it's not the ones that are completely built in that they're trying to manipulate. It's the ones that are susceptible to impression. It's the ones that are like, Hey, they're family. Right? They're cool, they're hip. It's your uncle, not your dad or your mom. Right? Tell them your secrets about the boy you like. Tell them the secrets about the, the clothes your parents don't like you to wear. Tell them like, and again, this is not with the aunts, it's not even even playing field, it's not even like this was stumbled upon, and that's how you know that is how you know that this was intentional, is that it's not a consistent theme for men and women. It is specifically uncles, specifically male mentor type figures that are being called out and utilized as a way to groom your children within these TV shows. Right? And I can look at, uh, several of those and know that some of them were something that my daughter was consuming and something that I consumed when I was growing up. right? Something that probably you consumed when you were growing up. And this is not even getting into the movies. Not even getting into the movies, right? And we already have a very long list, right? And when you continue that out, you find more and more and more, right, like chat, G P T said 32, 40% of them. So what are you gonna do with that information? Are you gonna leave here? Forget about it. Allow your child to watch some stupid ass show that's going to program them. Program them to keep secrets from you to believe that pronouns are a real thing. To think that men can have periods as long as they're wearing a trans shirt. Like in Baymax. Is that what you want for your child? Or are you gonna take the, I don't know, three steps right now? To do so. Right? And let's see. Maybe I can do it right here. Let's, let's see if I can do it. Um, I'm going to log into Disney right now. It's gonna take me a sec. Gimme a sec here. Let's get this computer over here. My daughter's gonna be happy about this. Let's log into Disney right now. I'll walk you through the steps. We're gonna go to disney plus.com, all right, Disney plus.com. All you gotta do, may I follow me along here? Disney plus.com if you have children, let's make this fun. Log in. I'm gonna put in my username. Let's see how we do it. How hard do they make it? We're gonna go to, I assume, Go and click on your profile. Go to account, and at the very bottom there is a delete account button. Two steps log into Disney Press account. Third step press delete account. If you wanna delete your Disney Plus account, you must cancel your subscription first, or you will continue to be charged. Deleting your Disney Plus account will delete your email address, first and last name and profile. It will also anonymize all other Disney plus account information so it is no longer associated with your email. You'll also be unsubscribed from all marketing campaigns. Uh, if your Disney Plus subscription is bill by a third party, you proceed through the requested Disney plus account deletion. Then you immediately lose access. Look at this. They sent something to my email. They will give me a three digit. Go log into my email. Let's get that one time code. There it is, 6 0 5 16, and then some other number. Not sure why. I wouldn't care to tell you that. I'm not sure. You're trying to get into my Disney Plus subscription. And even if you are, have fun. Um, 6 0 5, 1 6 and delete. Just like that folks, three steps. Log into your account, click account, press delete. That's it, and you're done. I hope you followed me along there. All right. Now, on that note, do what's right for you. Do what's right for your family and damn it, do what is right for your children because nobody else is going to, in fact, almost everybody who is on the other side of that has your best, the best interest of your child, not in mind. Whether it's a corporation, whether it's the government, whether it's a corporate entity, a, whatever it is, you are the only person who's gonna take that seriously, and your child's gonna either grow from it or suffer from it. So on that note, Whew, man. I gotta take a breath after that one. That pisses me off. Thank you guys for listening. I appreciate it so much. I hope, I hope, hope, hope that you got something from that today.

Black History Month has come to a close, but Black history is important every day of the year, and it continues to be written in real time. In the Bay Area, a region teeming with Black history, stories of diaspora, the exploits, struggles and the successes alike, February was full of events to remind us why it matters. KCBS Radio's Mallory Somera sat down with Fredrika Newton--widow of Huey P. Newton, President of the Dr. Huey P. Newton Foundation and former Black Panther Party member--and Dr. Xavier Buck--Executive Director of the foundation and manager of the Dr. Huey P.

REPARATIONS: Japanese Americans won $1.6 Billion redress, help African Americans fight for Reparations - Michael Imhotep on 'The Culture' with Farajii Muhammad 2-27-23 From California to Washington, D.C., activists are joining revived reparations movements and pushing for formal government compensation for the lasting harm of slavery's legacy on subsequent generations, from access to housing and education to voting rights and employment. Japanese American activists in California are studying the landmark report issued by California's task force — and plan to reach out to college students, churches and other community groups to raise awareness about why Black reparations is needed — and how it intersects with their own struggle. Only 30% of U.S. adults surveyed by the Pew Research Center in 2021 supported reparations for slavery, 77% of whom were Black Americans. Support among Latinos and Asians was 39% and 33%, respectively, and white Americans had the lowest rate of support, at 18%. Some advocates said that the idea of reparations for the World War II incarceration camps was once considered outlandish. But many young, third-generation Japanese Americans were inspired to mobilize from civil rights and ethnic pride movements, including the Black Panther Party and the Brown Berets, who promoted Chicano rights.

The Majority Report with Sam Seder
Emma speaks with Trevor Aaronson, contributing writer at The Intercept, to discuss his recent podcast Alphabet Boys. Then, she's joined by freelance journalist Zachary A. Siegel, to discuss his recent coverage in Bolts Magazine of the Chicago mayoral race. First, Emma runs through updates on decreasing unemployment filings, Trump's visit to East Palestine – beating out both Biden and Buttigieg – Norfolk Southern coming to an agreement with their unions, the ADL study on all of last years extremist killing coming from the Right wing, Israel's bombing of the Gaza strip, early polling for Feinstein's vacated CA Senate seat, and more, before diving into the Democrats' failure to respond (in any capacity) to the disaster in East Palestine and the revelation of child labor abuses at Packers Sanitation Services Inc. Trevor Aaronson then joins as he dives right into the history of the FBI's infiltration of left-wing political and civil rights movements, a tactic foundational to the Bureau's Hooverian ideology, beginning with the Counter-Intelligence Program (COINTELPRO) of the 1950s that ran through the ‘70s, serving to undermine and endanger groups like the Black Panther Party and American Indian Movement and those that served as community leaders, and moving through Senator Frank Church's investigation into and disbandment of this program and its horrendous abuses. Next, Aaronson walks through the post-Church Committee development of the FBI, as they somewhat took on a reserved role until the birth of the War on Terror, and a mass influx of funding for domestic political infiltration coming after the 9/11 terror attacks, and creating a renaissance of the FBI's right to surveil and infiltrate without a criminal predicate. Trevor then looks to the protests of summer 2020 as he takes Emma through the story of Mickey Windecker, a self-proclaimed mercenary recruited by the FBI to infiltrate and inform on left-wing activists groups planning protests in Denver in the wake of the murder of George Floyd, employing violence, intimidation, and intra-community conspiracy to undermine and entrap Black anti-racist activists into illegal acts, resulting of the arrest of one protestor for the FBI-funded purchasing of weapons for the FBI informant, who would then give said weapon back to the FBI. After briefly touching on Jim Jordan and the GOP's “Church Committee 2.0” and why we must push back against the revisionist narrative that the FBI only (or even primarily) targets the right wing, Emma and Trevor wrap up the interview by tackling the likelihood that these tactics were also prevalent outside of Denver, and the future of his reporting with “Alphabet Boys.” And in the Fun Half: Emma is joined by Matt Binder and Brandon Sutton as they discuss Donald Trump's visit to an East Palestine McDonalds, the Democrats' obsession with evacuating from any areas where things go a little wrong for them, and why DeSantis' crime tour won't do much for his fight against Trump. Ben from Texas dives into his experiences in the struggling local news world, the crew covers pro-life Alaska State Rep.

Mark Whitaker - 1966: Black Power: Saying it Loud! The Not Old Better Show, Smithsonian Associates Interview Series Welcome to The Not Old Better Show, Smithsonian Associates Interview Series on radio and podcast. I'm Paul Vogelzang, and as part of our February Black History Month today's show is part of our Smithsonian Associates Black History Month author interview series, and we have an excellent program about Black History, Black Power and the Civil Rights movement. Our guest today is Smithsonian Associate, journalist, and author Mark Whitaker who has written the new book ‘Saying It Loud: 1966—The Year Black Power Challenged the Civil Rights Movement' Thank you so much for listening. We've got a great guest today with author Mark Whitaker, who is a journalist and author, and who, after reading his new book, ‘Saying It Loud: 1966—The Year Black Power Challenged the Civil Rights Movement' I've been looking forward to speaking with him for a while. I'll introduce him in just a moment. But, quickly, if you missed any episodes, last week was our 696th episode, when I spoke to 79-year-old author Rick Bleiweiss, who is the perfect example of the saying “you're never too old to follow your dreams.” Two weeks ago, I spoke with author Susan Shapiro Barash about her Valentine's Day book ‘A Passion for More: Affairs that Make Us or Break Us,' Wonderful subjects for our Not Old Better Show audience…If you missed those shows, along with any others, you can go back and check them out with my entire back catalog of shows, all free for you, there on our website, NotOld-Better.com Join us today as we talk with journalist and author Mark Whitaker for an exploration of the momentous year of 1966, in which a new sense of Black identity expressed in the slogan “Black Power” challenged the nonviolent civil rights philosophy of Martin Luther King, Jr. and John Lewis. Mark Whitaker will be appearing at Smithsonian Associates coming up, so please check out our show notes today for more details about Mark Whitaker at Smithsonian Associates. Mark Whitaker and I will discuss the dramatic events in this seminal year, from Stokely Carmichael's middle-of-the-night ouster of moderate icon John Lewis as chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, known as SNCC to Carmichael's impassioned cry of “Black Power!” during a protest march in rural Mississippi; the founding of the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense by Huey Newton and Bobby Seale to the origins of Kwanzaa, the Black Arts Movement, and the first Black studies programs; and from Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.'s ill-fated campaign to take the civil rights movement north to Chicago to the wrenching ousting of the white members of SNCC. Whitaker offers portraits of the major characters in the yearlong drama and provides new details and insights from key players and journalists who covered the story. He also discusses why the lessons from 1966 still resonate in the era of Black Lives Matter and the fierce contemporary battles over voting rights, identity politics, and the teaching of Black history. Please join me in welcoming to The Not Old Better Show, Smithsonian Associates author interview series during Black History Month Smithsonian Associate Mark Whitaker.

In celebration of the new book Comrade Sisters: Women of the Black Panther Party, three women — Judy Juanita, Madalynn Rucker and Ericka Huggins — discuss their time with the Black Panther Party at a UC Berkeley event in October 2022. "I knew that my big purpose was to learn how to love because I was raised in a community that was not loved," says Ericka Huggins, who co-authored Comrade Sisters with photographer Stephen Shames and was director of Oakland Community School led by the Black Panther Party. "I could see the impact on the future generation's understanding that I came from a generation that didn't have what we were offering. And it worked."Read a transcript and listen to the episode on Berkeley News.Music by Blue Dot Sessions. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

This year (2016) marks the 50th anniversary of the BLACK PANTHER PARTY and MD brings in special guest, LARRY PINKNEY an ORIGINAL BLACK PANTHER to discuss how the PANTHERS are viewed in today's society. Did the BLACK PANTHERS start out as community organization that eventually got away from their principles? How did the PANTHERS feel about MARTIN LUTHER KING'S approach of NON-VIOLENCE? Did the FBI's COINTELPRO infiltrate to bring down the Party or did their own in fighting between HUEY P. NEWTON & ELRIDGE CLEAVER play the biggest role in the demise of the party? At the top of the 2nd Hour, for the MONEY & POWER 15, we ask how did the PANTHERS finance their BREAKFAST PROGRAM and provide 20K meals weekly for the youth, as well as the sickle cell testing for the community?

Happy Black History month! We are back on our regular bull**** y'all! We are drinking a drink that originated with a viral practical joke in 1874 called the Tom Collins. Though this crisp, classic gin cocktail was still popular a hundred years after the fact, the era of STEPHANIE's scandal.
Women of the party. Today, after over a half century, we can speak out in open praise of female members of the Black Panther Party, members who served with heart honor and distinction. Whom did…
In 1968, FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover said the Black Panther Party "without question, represents the greatest threat to the internal security of the country." And with that declaration he used United States federal law enforcement to wage war on the group. But why did Hoover's FBI target the Black Panther Party more severely than any other Black power organization? Historian Donna Murch says the answer lies in the Panthers' political agenda: not their brash, gun-toting public image, but in their capacity to organize across racial and class lines. It was a strategy that challenged the very foundations of American society. And it was working.

We go to Los Angeles to speak with Harold Welton, a member of the Coalition to Free Ruchell Magee. Harold has been fighting for the liberation of Black people and all people for many decades, since being a member of the Southern California chapters of SNCC and then the Black Panther Party. Ruchell Magee is one of the longest held political prisoner in the country. He was first captured in 1963 on trumped-up charges related to a marijuana deal, and later became implicated as the lesser-known co-defendent in the same case that made Angela Davis famous, related to the Marin County Courthouse rebellion led by Jonathan Jackson. Ruchell is now 83 years old, and the coalition is trying to get him free. You can find ways to support the Coalition to Free Ruchell Magee, including petitions and phone numbers for legislators, on their website below.

Dem Vinyl Boyz are back this week we're diving into one of the most prolific debut albums that tackles political issues with undeniable conviction, Rage Against The Machine. These guys created this album with a purpose, displaying a photo of the self-immolation of Thích Quảng Đức, a vietnamese monk, on the album cover. He was protesting President Ngô Đình Diệm's administration for oppressing the Buddhist religion and the international attention this photo gained persuaded U.S. President John F. Kennedy to withdraw support for Diệm's government. The songs on Rage Against the Machine all feature political messages with activists such as Provisional IRA hunger striker Bobby Sands and Black Panther Party founder Huey P. Newton are listed in the "Thanks For Inspiration" section. Through this album's success, it remains an essential call to activism and a necessary lesson on how to withstand the opposition. Aside from the album's obvious political themes, the music itself defies the way "normal" albums would be released and offers a genre-bending experience that makes it difficult to categorize as one specific thing. Throwing mixes of rock, funk, and rap throughout the album, it is recognized as one of the first albums to successfully merge the seemingly contrasting sounds of rap and heavy metal. The album peaked at number 1 on the US Billboard Heatseekers chart and number 45 on the US Billboard 200 and has gone on to achieve triple platinum sales certification in the US.

Joining host Michael Azevedo on this episode is Lise Pearlman, producer of the 2023 Oscar short-listed documentary: American Justice on Trial: People v. Newton which tells the story of the death penalty case that put racism on trial in a U.S. courtroom in the fall of 1968. Huey P. Newton, Black Panther Party co-founder, was accused of killing a white policeman and wounding another after a pre-dawn car stop in Oakland. At his trial, Newton and his maverick defense team led by Charles Garry and his then rare female co-counsel Fay Stender, defended the Panthers as a response to 400 years of racism and accused the policemen of racial profiling, insisting Newton had only acted in self-defense. Their unprecedented challenges to structural racism in the jury selection process were revolutionary and risky. A retired judge, Lise Pearlman wrote three prize-winning books related to the documentary: The Sky's The Limit: People v. Newton; the 2016 companion book for the film that incorporates the perspectives of key film interviewees, American Justice on Trial: People v. Newton; and a 2018 biography of Newton's pioneering woman lawyer, Call Me Phaedra: The Life and Times of Movement Lawyer Fay Stender. LISA is also the President of Arc of Justice Productions, Inc., the nonprofit that initiated this film project. The final list of 2023 Oscar nominated documentaries will be announced on January 24.

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 107 Nothing Woke stays the same. The revolution must be perpetual, and the advances of yesterday are the new right wing of today. This is true even in Social-Emotional Learning (SEL), which has now already developed through several different iterations and implementation styles to arrive at CASEL's "systemic" implementation of "Transformative Social-Emotional Learning," which is explicitly Freirean and Marxist. Even though it only emerged in 2019, by the next year, radicals in education were already writing "radical reports" (a "radport") about how it doesn't go nearly far enough and is "white supremacy with a hug." Instead, they recommended something far, far more explicitly Communist called "Culturally Affirming SEL." In 2021, they had already begun petitioning Biden's Department of Education to incorporate Culturally Affirming SEL and its "SEL demands," adapted explicitly from the Black Panther Party, into US education as soon as possible. As you'll hear, it doesn't even mention academic competency at all! In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay goes through the incredibly well-funded initiative to transform Social-Emotional Learning even further into the Communist by reading through the majority of this "radport" (https://newdiscourses.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/01/Reclaim-Social-Emotional-Learning-Radport-Single-Page.pdf) from the Communities for Just Schools Fund.

Thank you for listening to Will Wright Catholic. This post is public so feel free to share it.IntroductionWith Martin Luther King day approaching, it struck me that a great number of Americans have no idea who Martin Luther King Jr. was or what he did. They are barely familiar with his most famous speech: “I Have a Dream.” And each third Monday of January, most of us take the day off work for the federal holiday, but we do not take time to appreciate the contributions of this great man. So, in a small way, I would like to respond to that vacancy of attention. This short article will look at the life of Dr. King and his role in the Civil Rights Movement. There are many things that I have had to leave out for time's sake. But may this serve as a primer for further study. I believe that we still have more to learn from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.Who was Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.?Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was born Michael King Jr. on January 15, 1929 in Atlanta, GA. He was an American Baptist minister and one of the foremost leaders of the Civil Rights Movement of the late 1950s and the 1960s. As an African American, Dr. King fought for the rights of people of color through nonviolence and civil disobedience. In this regard, he had been inspired both by our Lord Jesus Christ and the example of Mahatma Gandhi. As a Baptist minister, King was steeped in the written word of God. As a young man, he earned a Bachelor of Divinity degree in 1951 from Crozer Theological Seminary in Upland, Pennsylvania. He then went on to pursue doctoral studies in systematic theology at Boston University. He received his Ph.D. degree on June 5, 1955. His dissertation was entitled: A Comparison of the Conceptions of God in the Thinking of Paul Tillich and Henry Nelson Wieman. Before completing his studies, he married Coretta Scott on June 18, 1953 and they became the parents of four children. King was made pastor of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama at the age of 25 in 1954. In December 1959, he moved back to his home city of Atlanta and served as co-pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church alongside his father, until his death. Sadly, Martin Luther King Jr. was shot and killed while staying at a motel in Memphis, Tennessee on April 4, 1968. The Civil Rights MovementThe Civil Rights Movement began in large measure with the Supreme Court Case Brown v Board of Education in 1954. This ruled that racial segregation in public schools was unconstitutional. This overturned the horrendous Plessy v Ferguson (1896) case which allowed Jim Crow laws that mandated separate public facilities for whites and blacks. Beginning with schools, desegregation quickly spread to other public facilities as well. On December 1, 1955, African American Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a public bus to a white passenger. She was arrested and a sustained bus boycott in Montgomery, Alabama began. The protest began on December 5 with the young local preacher, Martin Luther King, Jr. leading - the boycott continued for more than a year. The Supreme Court upheld a lower court's ruling that segregated seating was unconstitutional.In 1957 the Little Rock Nine attempted to attend the central high school whose population had been entirely white. It took an escort of U.S. soldiers to allow these young men to attend school. The Greensboro Four, in 1960, took part in a sit-in at the all-white lunch counter at a F.W. Woolworth department store. The sit-in grew and replacements were brought in to replace those taken off to jail. On November 14, 1960, six-year-old Ruby Bridges was escorted to her first day at the previously all-white William Frantz Elementary school in New Orleans by four armed federal marshals. Many parents marched in to remove their children from the school to protest desegregation. She continued going to school, being escorted, and endured threats. Her teacher, Barbara Henry, continued to teach her (alone in the classroom).Beginning on May 4, 1961, a group of seven African American and six whites boarded two buses bound for New Orleans. Along the way, the riders tested the Supreme Court ruling of Boynton v Virginia (1960) which extended an earlier ruling banning segregated interstate bus travel to include bus terminals and restrooms. In South Carolina, the bus had a tire slashed, it was firebombed, and the Freedom Riders were beaten. A second group of 10 replaced them until they were arrested or beaten, then another group would take their place. On May 29, U.S. Attorney general Robert F. Kennedy ordered the Interstate Commerce Commission to enforce bans on segregation more strictly. This took effect in September 1961.The Birmingham DemonstrationsThe Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) and Martin Luther King, Jr. launched a campaign in Birmingham, AL to undermine the city's system of racial segregation. The campaign included sit-ins, economic boycotts, mass protests, and marches on City Hall. The demonstrations faced challenges: indifferent African Americans, adversarial white and black leaders, and a hostile commissioner of public safety - Eugene “Bull” Connor. Dr. King was arrested on April 12 for violating an anti-protest injunction and he was placed in solitary confinement. The demonstrations continued for a month, then the Children's Crusade was launched. On May 2, 1963, school-aged volunteers skipped school and began to march - the local jails were quickly filled. Bull Connor ordered the police and fire department to set high-pressure water hoses and attack dogs on the youth.The violent tactics on peaceful demonstrators caused outrage locally and gained national media attention.President John F. Kennedy proposed a civil rights bill on June 11. The Birmingham campaign was eventually negotiated to an agreement locally but tensions were high. A bomb on September 15 at 16th Street Baptist Church killed four African American girls and injured others. The country was in the midst of the war in Vietnam while determining at home what sort of nation we might be.The 1963 March on WashingtonOn August 28, the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom took place to protest civil rights abuses and employment discrimination. A crowd of 250,000 people peacefully gathered on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. to listen to speeches, most notably by Martin Luther King, Jr. This is where Dr. King delivered his “I Have a Dream Speech.”The Civil Rights Act of 1964On July 2, 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act into law - a stronger version of legislation that President Kennedy proposed before his assassination. The act authorized the federal government to prevent racial discrimination in employment, voting, and the use of public facilities.1965: Assassination of Malcolm XOn February 21, 1965, Malcolm X was assassinated while lecturing at the Audubon Ballroom in Harlem, NY. He was a brilliant speaker and demanded that the civil rights movement move beyond civil rights to human rights. He thought that the solution to racial problems was in orthodox Islam. His ideas contributed to the development of the black nationalist ideology and the Black Power movement. 1965: Selma-Montgomery MarchOn March 7, 1965, Dr. King organized a march from Selma, AL to Montgomery, AL, to call for a federal voting rights law that provided legal support for disenfranchised African Americans in the South. State troopers sent marchers back with violence and tear gas; television cameras recorded the incident. On March 9, King tried again - more than 2,000 marchers encountered a barricade of state troopers at Pettus Bridge. King had his followers kneel in prayer and then they unexpectedly turned back. President Johnson introduced voting rights legislation on March 15, then on March 21, King once again set out from Selma. This time, Alabama National Guardsmen, federal marshals, and FBI agents assisted and King arrived in Montgomery on March 25. The Voting Rights Act was signed into law on August 6. This law suspended literacy tests, provided for federal approval of proposed changes to voting laws or procedures, and directed the attorney general of the U.S. to challenge the use of poll taxes for state and local elections.1965: Watts RiotsSeries of violent confrontations between the city police and residence of Watts and other black neighborhoods in L.A. - beginning on August 11, 1965. A white police officer arrested an African American man, Marquette Frye, on suspicion of driving while intoxicated - he likely resisted arrest and the police possibly used excessive force. Violence, fires, and looting broke out over the next six days. The result was 34 deaths, 1,000 injuries, and $40 million in property damage. The McCone Commission later investigated the cause of the riots and concluded that they were the result of economic challenges including poor housing, schools, and job prospects.1966: Black Panther Party FoundedAfter Malcom X was assassinated, Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seale founded the Black Panther Party in Oakland, CA to protect black neighborhoods from what they saw as police brutality. The group launched community programs providing tuberculosis testing, legal aid, transportation assistance, and free shoes. They believed that civil rights reforms did not do enough. The Black Panther Party was socialist and, therefore, the target of the F.B.I.'s counterintelligence program - they were accused of being a communist organization and an enemy of the U.S. government. In December 1969, police tried to annihilate the group at their Southern California headquarters and in Illinois. The Party's operations continued, less actively, into the 1970s.1967: Loving v VirginiaOn June 12, 1967, the U.S. Supreme Court declared the Virginia statutes prohibiting interracial marriage unconstitutional. Richard Loving, a white man, and Mildred Jeter, who was mixed black and Native American, left Virginia to be married and then return to the state (this was against the law). Their one year prison sentence was suspended on the condition that they leave Virginia and not return for at least 25 years. They filed their suit in 1963 and it took four years to get to the Supreme Court - their conviction was reversed. Chief Justice Earl Warren wrote for a unanimous court that freedom to marry was a basic civil right. This ruling invalidated laws against interracial marriage in Virginia and 15 other states. 1967: Detroit RiotSeries of violent confrontations between African American neighborhoods and police beginning on July 23, 1967 after a raid at an illegal drinking club - 82 African Americans, and others, were arrested. Nearby residents protested and began to vandalize property, loot businesses, and start fires for five days. Police set up blockades but the violence spread - result was 43 deaths, hundreds of injuries, more than 7,000 arrests, and 1,000 burned buildings. President Johnson appointed the National Advisory Committee on Civil Disorders - they concluded that racism, discrimination, and poverty were some of the causes of the violence.1968: Assassination of Martin Luther King Jr.While standing on the second-floor balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, TN, Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed by a sniper - April 4, 1968. He was staying at the hotel after leading a nonviolent demonstration in support of striking sanitation workers. His murder set off riots in hundreds of cities across the country. Congress passed the Fair Housing act in King's honor on April 11. The Fair Housing Act made it unlawful for sellers, landlords, and financial institutions to refuse to rent, sell, or provide financing based on factors other than an individual's finances. The Civil Rights Movement, after King's death, seemed to be shifting away from the nonviolent tactics and interracial cooperation that had brought about a number of policy changes. Nonetheless, his legacy remains.What is Martin Luther King Jr.'s Legacy?The legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. focuses on his ideas on nonviolence, civil disobedience, and peaceful noncooperation. Dr. King had his faults: plagiarism and adultery were accusations levied against him with considerable evidence. But all of us fall short of the glory of God. What I am concerned about is his impact on the country. What was the legacy of his ideas and actions?Two lines, in particular, of Dr. King's fantastic “I Have a Dream Speech” in Washington, D.C. are more than noteworthy. In a portion of the speech, which seemed to be ad-libbed rather than scripted, Dr. King said, “I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.” This, I think, reveals the heart of the man. Dr. King marched hand in hand with those of any race and religion. Here he is invoking the long past of American slavery which still haunted the nation under the guise of Jim Crow. Where some, like Malcolm X, were threatening or perpetrating violence, Dr. King was speaking of brotherhood and sharing a common meal. Nothing could be more Christian than this. Second, he said the beautiful words that ought to echo down the halls of humanity until we come to our final reward. He says, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” Racism is a scourge from the depths of hell. To judge another based on their skin color is reprehensible. I would be remiss to say that this extends also to those progressives today who insist on advancing identity and race politics. Dr. King would certainly be opposed to such racist nonsense. In his Letter from the Birmingham Jail, written during his incarceration, he begins by outlining the four steps to nonviolent campaign: “1) collection of the facts to determine whether injustices are alive; 2) negotiation; 3) self-purification [note: how often is this forgotten!]; and 4) direct action.” He saw the heinous reality of the treatment of blacks, especially in the South. And he answered with measured, reasonable action. Much of the rest of the letter then builds off of these four steps. However, Dr. King challenges us, even decades later, in his letter. He speaks of those who are a stumbling block to justice. He mentions, of course, the Ku Klux Klan but then lambasts the “white moderate who is more devoted to ‘order' than to justice.” He goes on to say, “Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection.” The words of Dr. King would have certainly ruffled feathers back then, but I am certain that many conservatives today would bristle at hearing this challenge. Yet, what Dr. King is saying what Jesus says to us: “Because you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold, I will spew you from My mouth.” We have to choose a side. There can be no moderation when it comes to toleration of the sin of true racism. This brings us back to his legacy. We must act when there is injustice. But how should we act? Should we act out with rioting and violence? Certainly, Dr. King would bellow a resounding “no!” Instead, we are to gather the facts, negotiate, allow God to purify our own hearts, and then act directly. May we have the strength, in God's grace, to do so whenever we are convicted by justice to do so.Thanks for reading Will Wright Catholic! Subscribe for free to receive new posts and support my work.

The Black Liberation Army was a far-left black nationalist organization formed by former Black Panther Party and Republic of New Afrika members. They were active from 1970-1981 during which they committed several crimes. The most notable being the robbery of a Brinks truck in 1981 that killed a guard and two police officers. Their most famous member, Assata Shakur, is Tupac's god-mother and Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza's main influence for starting the group. Assata is currently living in Cuba under political asylum, and is on the FBI's top ten most wanted terrorist list--the first woman to ever be included on the list.Any questions or comments email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or find us on Twitter @OGMMPodcast
David and Rose talk about the most overlooked demographic within the Black Panther Party. Over 60 percent of Black Panthers were Black women, yet the media only portrays the contributions of men and the police brutality that took place during the time. Why were these women historically overlooked? And how does this continue in current day media?

Today's History Story — A Rallying Cry That Inspired Oppressed People Worldwide It was in Plainfield, NJ, in 1971 where our guest - Ashanti Alston - joined The Black Panther Party, radicalized in the wake of the 1967 Newark Riots and Malcolm X's assassination years earlier. Ashanti would begin his life as an anarchist on that day, and it has guided his every step – through the Panther Party, then the Black Liberation Army, his incarceration, and his work honoring the sacrifice of political prisoners in the name of Black liberation with The Jericho Movement. Ashanti sits with us now with a 21st-century view of the impact of his radical brothers and sisters and the lessons learned from a lifetime of seeking Black liberation. _________________________ Black History Year (BHY) is produced by PushBlack, the nation's largest non-profit Black media company.

The original Bad Boy of Detroit Pistons is opening up and talking everything from his relationship with Magic Johnson to Detroit Pistons changing the game to sharing his side of the infamous Michael Jordan feud. Isiah starts the show saying very simply that he is going to state facts and you can't argue facts and that it's one thing to win a championship in the NBA but it's another to win a championship at every level ever played. Growing up on the West Side of Chicago, Isiah shares how his upbringing was shaped by his mother's guidance and a family first mentality where his mother cared more about the type of man he'd become vs the money and opportunity being offered. His mom's influence was so great, it became her decision where he played college basketball and also who he played for. The West Side of Chicago is home to many activists and organizations such as Fred Hampton, Martin Luther King Jr, and The Black Panther Party. Isiah grew up in this environment and recalls marching alongside his mother with Dr.King. Spearheading change at the national level, Isiah used his local groundwork in Detroit to advocate for Black journalists covering the team, more rights for Black NBA players leaving a greater impact with his legacy not just on the court but in culture. Isiah makes his case known for why so many people overlook Detroit Pistons as transcending the NBA and shares what the team really did for the league and how they were the firsts to do many things back then setting the example of how teams should be and move. Known for his historic rivalry with Michael Jordan, Ryan asks what were his thoughts on the way his character was portrayed by Jordan in The Last Dance. Isiah provides The Pivot with an exclusive inside look to his true relationship with MJ and goes on to say that he always looked out for Michael and that their families were even close. He also speaks about how rules within the NBA were changed to protect Michael Jordan. Isaih doesn't hold back as he shares his thoughts on while he was deemed the a-hole of the NBA when in fact he was the nice guy. Lastly, Isiah lets the guys in on the history of his and Magic's close relationship and what led up to their legendary interview. He gives credit to the current legends playing the game such as Lebron James, Stephen Curry, and Kevin Durant, and says they've transformed the game in a way we may never see again.

Stephen Sackur is in in Oakland, California, to speak to Ericka Huggins, an original member of the 1960s Black Panther Party. She experienced violence, imprisonment and vilification in the controversial campaign for black power. Do the Panthers have lessons for the Black Lives Matter movement?
The following article introduces a new series of articles on the ideology of the Black Panther Party by our Minister of Information, Eldridge Cleaver.. In this episode Shibby reads out this piece in an attempt to better orientate our ideology in a more refined and coherent manner towards a Marxist-Lumpen lens. We listen to the Panthers ideolgy and their reasoning for it, which feature topics like the left (lumpen) & right (workers) wing of the proleteriat, as well as Imperial Marxism being inherently European-orientated and more towards getting everyone on the same page, on the same wavelength, navigating our bouji enviornments towards socaialism via ideology.

Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness
In 1977 more than 100 disabled activists in San Francisco took over a federal building for 25 days. It was the longest non-violent occupation of a federal building in United States history. As they advocated for their rights, they found an ally in the Black Panther Party, which understood that disability rights were connected with their own anti-capitalist, anti-imperialist racial justice work. This week, Professor Sami Schalk joins Jonathan to discuss how Black cultural workers have approached disability as a social and political issue in the U.S. from the 1970s to the present, and what it looks like to honor Black disability politics through language, legislation, and beyond. Sami Schalk is an associate professor of Gender & Women's Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She is the author of Bodyminds Reimagined: (Dis)ability, Race & Gender in Black Women's Speculative Fiction (Duke UP 2018) and Black Disability Politics (Duke UP 2022). Schalk identifies as a fat Black queer disabled femme and a pleasure activist. You can follow Professor Schalk on Twitter @drsamischalk and on Instagram as @fierceblackfemme. Her new book Black Disability Politics is essential reading, and Professor Schalk has made it open access, so make sure to track down a copy—and drop in on one of the hybrid launch events in the coming weeks!
