A House Divided | The Roundtable Ep. 22
The Lincoln Project puts out shamelessly deceitful (and laughably uninspired) propaganda insinuating President Trump is a racist. Google tries to demonetize the Federalist. Plus: Black Lives Matter rallies people to raise money for Black lives but instead funnels it to the Democrat Party and other activist groups. Our editors discuss the demonstrations of political power in the streets and the erasure of western history before our very eyes.
The Great Leap of Faith | Segment 1
Our editors discuss woke religion and its unfalsifiable claim that nebulous racism permeates our country–as compared to the real racism brought about by the administrative state and the elites who run it. Meanwhile, party lines are getting blurred, revealing which movements have the real power of the people behind them. Finally: same story, different victim—Google tries to demonetize the Federalist based on its comments section, then backs down.
The Multiculturalism Scam | Segment 2
Behind and beyond the Democrat and Republican party, there are two coalitions mobilizing Americans: the BLM-Antifa coalition and the MAGA coalition. The traditional parties must bow down to these new populist fronts in order to harness their power. Unfortunately for the sincerest among the woke, the money BLM raises is not going where anyone thinks it is. It’s the scam of multiculturalism writ large: Americans are sorted into groups so they can be better managed by the elites.
The West vs. the Woke | Segment 3
The attempts at eradicating any trace of Western history continue this week, but who would have thought that the one to exhibit the most spine in the West would be Emmanuel Macron? Our editors give credit where it is due, discussing French nationalism and the struggles that are giving way to our full-blown regime crisis. Finally: the leftists come for poor John Sutter, and our editors aren’t having it.
