Resist the Blackpill | The Roundtable Ep. 32

Amid the riots, the lockdowns, and the ceaseless media deceit, it’s tempting to just give up and wait for the end of America. But that’s exactly what the Democrats want. There is another path, however. You can dig your feet in the sand, cough up that black pill, and resist. Now is the time to go all-in, with cheer in your heart and a glint of joy in your eye. There’s nowhere else to go if we fail.

Kenosha Riots | The Roundtable Ep. 32 Segment 1

As the violent Left is set alight by another police shooting and subsequent Democratic agitation, they turn and set American cities alight. This time, two rioters met their end at the hands of a private citizen. It didn’t have to be this way. Our editors discuss how to avoid giving in to despair. Timestamp: 1:02

Secession is on the Table | The Roundtable Ep. 32 Segment 2

With a meager sixty-seven days until the general election in November, Democrats have moved from talking about secession as a last-ditch effort in a war game, to floating it as a serious strategy. Fueled by pure rage and moral self-righteousness, identitarians in liberal clothing are making their final gambit to stage an all-out coup. Can the American republic survive another wicked blow?

Make Your Stand | The Roundtable Ep. 32 Segment 3

The media tells you a misleading narrative first, and the facts only if convenient. Various government entities actively encourage or refuse to stop savagery and destruction in the streets. Our fellow citizens are torching businesses and ruthlessly beating people for trying to protect their livelihoods. Our institutions have failed us. You have to stand up for your country while there is still time to reverse course. If you don’t, no one else will. Timestamp: 41:24
