Tim Pool, Joe Rogan and Stuart Varney Whine About Socialism and my Market Urbanism Discussion with Scott Beyer
I break down videos from Noam Chomsky and PragerU then give my thoughts and analysis on the Coronavirus, the incompetence of the Trump administration and the weakness of supposedly "progressive" and "socialist" politicians in America and around the world.
I break down two Fox News videos and analyze articles about Cenk Uygur, India's increasing problem of Hindu nationalist violence sanctioned by the Modi regime, the return of far-right politics in Germany and Bernie Sanders' comments about Cuba and the Castro regime.
I break down video clips from Ben Shapiro and The Five and analyze articles concerning the recent Irish elections, the reality of America's current economy, the rank anti-Medicare For All propaganda and the Trump administration's crackdown on voting stocks.
I breakdown two cringeworthy elitist videos and articles on the Iranian Uprising, the further abandonment of American steelworkers, the destruction of labor movements in the UK and the evangelical Trump base's utter hypocrisy and moral depravity.
My friend Dane Posner owns a smug "libertarian" girl, Dinesh D'Souza fails to defend capitalist exploitation of workers, the Working Families Party Endorses Elizabeth Warren, the UAW strokes continue and Trump wants to pull troops from Syria and leave the Kurds to be slaughtered.
I break down a discussion between Congressman Dan Crenshaw and Laura Ingraham and an interview clip of Noam Chomsky on conservatism. I also break down news stories such as the Sri Lankan university employee strikes, transportation worker strikes in Spain, the Hong Kong Protests and the history of the American labor movement, which essentially started in Philadelphia in 1786 and led to a notable 1835 which resulted in some wins for the working class!
I break down two Ted Cruz videos on internet censorship, an article in Jacobin on Bernie Sanders, two articles from WSWS on strikes and protests in India and France and the recent halfhearted "condemnations" of the Israeli occupation of Palestine by Democratic presidential candidates Pete Buttigieg and Joe Biden.
I break down a videos from Russell Brand (featuring religious scholar Reza Aslan) and Tucker Carlson. I also examine articles covering South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg's atrocious record on police brutality issues, ex-Brazilian president Lula's politically-motivated imprisonment, the impact of US sanctions on the Iranian working class, and I also examine a summary of recent/current workers' strikes from around the world. Enjoy!
I break down videos by Charlie Kirk and Ben Shapiro and go over the South Korean shipbuilders strike, the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, the wildcat strikes in Salinas, California, and the mistrial of Arizona border humanitarian Scott Warren.
I break down a hilarious video featuring Laura Ingraham and Candace Owens trying to debate Cornel West! I also break down a video of a Thomas Sowell interview discussing his disagreements with Noam Chomsky. I also break down articles covering topics such as the recent Honduran labor strikes, the Trump Administration's rollback of protections for the LGBTQ+ community, ridiculously overpriced lifesaving drugs and the rise and fall of social democratic and conservative parties in Europe.
I break down a December 2018 Russell Brand podcast featuring Candace Owens and a May 2019 BBC interview with Ben Shapiro. I also cover recent unrest in Sri Lanka, Joe Biden's efforts to sell out to the Republicans, the US military's escalation with Iran and recent Australian elections and right-wing populism.
I break down 2 Fox videos and discuss the myth of rising anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party, the UAW scandal, Beto O'Rourke, the New Zealand mosque terrorist attack and Ilhan Omar's justified criticisms of the US invasion of Iraq on this day in 2003.
I explain the link between spirituality and advocacy of communal societies based on charity, voluntary association, and distribution of resources according to need. I also instruct listeners about how to perform Mokuso, a Japanese form of meditation typically practiced before and after martial arts training sessions.
Part II of my 1/17/19 podcast wherein I cover Jeremy Corbin's false "friend of the working man" persona, the French government's assault on the free speech rights of Yellow Vest protesters, Donald Trump's new, less-anti-marijuana attorney general, and a Republican-led charge to hold cellphone carriers accountable for selling customer information to third parties.
In this episode, I break down two videos, one from liberal Kyle Kulinski and one from conservative Sean Hannity. Both of these pundits have commented about socialism, but both of them seem to have very little idea about what socialism actually is.
Special episode! No news, just my usual Double Video Breakdown featuring a video from Freedomtoons DEFENDING Trump's tax bill, and another video from my ideological hero, Noam Chomsky. Freedomtoons is a YouTube channel by an ancap libertarian named Seamus. Noam Chomsky is a world-renowned scholar and public intellectual who is also possibly the most well-known living libertarian socialist. As always, enjoy!
I break down Trump's Oval Office address on the border wall and government shutdown, in addition to breaking down the Democrats' response to said address. I also analyze a condescending Slate article defending corporate Democrats. Other articles are on Trump's "promise" to pay workers after the shutdown ends, worker protests in India, and Mike Pompeo's ridiculous speech in Cairo. The last few minutes got cut off, but you can get a pretty good idea of where I was going. Enjoy!
I break down recent videos from Fox News and The Daily Wire and discuss the impact the current government shutdown is having on working people. I also explain why people need to be careful about trusting Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Finally, I explain why Marco Rubio's new anti-BDS bill is an attack on the First Amendment of the US Constitution.
I break down stories about the yellow vest protests in France, Nancy Pelosi's crippling of the progressive agenda, the US and Israel pulling out of UNESCO, and the New Democrats' dangerously increasing influence over Dems in the House and Senate.
The first part of the podcast. I dropped my microphone and it stopped the entire recording so this part only contains my breakdown of Jordan Peterson's PragerU video and the audio of Elizabeth Warren's 2020 campaign video.
Latest episode of The Left Side of Liberty! I discuss the recent government shutdown, our complicated relations with Russia, the impact of climate change on immigration and even debunk a couple of right-wing videos!
