This week, David Vance and your columnist talk to Anne Wilson Smith, author of “Charlottesville Untold: Inside Unite the Right.” This is BIG, folks—a Big Soviet Lie à la America.

Not that you’d know this from the malfunctioning media, but the 2017 rally in Virginia to protest the removal of the statue of Robert E. Lee was sabotaged from up-high. The tinpot authorities (city, state, and police at both levels) sabotaged the constitutional rights of those with a permit (Unite the Right) to assemble and speak unharmed, while letting the feral, predatory forces of Antifa and BLM—the military arm of the Democrat Party—go a wilding. Commissioned by the city, a report by a distinguished, Virginia law firm confirms the “failures.”

David and I also delve controversially—naturally—into the assault on speech by Jewish organizations (e.g., Anti-Defamation League) and activists, who seem intent on stymieing styles of speech, such as the use of hyperbole, and the deployment of the reductio ad absurdum argument to drive home a point.

  1. Another podcast. Great. No can do. Just don’t have the time, wish I did, I’m sure the content is good. I can’t be the only one.

  2. Unite the Right should be filing lawsuits. This wasn’t just criminal negligence on the State’s part, it was willful criminal negligence. The State is responsible for the accident that killed Heyer.

    Finally, the woman at least addresses the elephant.

    The fact is that jews run roughshod over the leftists and rightists. The leftists are going full throat for the white throats. The rightists are still trying to use the whites.

    Basically Chabad vs Marxist vying for ultimate control.

    Either way, the real whites (as opposed to these cryptos) lose.

  4. At least Mengele gave his child subjects candy.

    Reductio ad Hitlerum is exclusively a tool of the Left. The Right should know better than to fight fire with fire.

    Transcripts would be nice–who has the time to listen to all these good pcasts?

    Speaking of filing lawsuits, why stop at Unite the Right? Impeachment papers against the President should be filed by Mitch mumbles McConnell. But he is so sold out and obviously hates the Republican base, that that idea is another pipe dream. What is he doing, or better put, what does he do for the Republican base. NOTHING. nothing at all. He hates the base and not just the MAGA types. He just partnered up with Schumer again, to help the democrats ruin the nation.

  7. The America of today is not the America of yesterday.

    After the Attack on Pearl Harbor 80 years ago, a lone Japanese navy submariner was captured in Hawaii. Despite the shock and outrage felt by Americans after that day of infamy, he was not unspeakably tortured like the prisoners in Gitmo, or the January 6th political prisoners abused and stripped of their dignity and legal rights.

    Kazuo Sakimaki was released in 1946 after less than five years as an American prisoner, and died in 1999 at age 81 after a long career with Toyota.

    Some of the prisoners at Gitmo have been there 20 years with no end in sight, and the J6 prisoners have now been incarcerated equal to a quarter of the time Sakimaki spent as a WW2 POW. Some are facing sentences longer than WW2 prisoners endured.

    America has changed into a mean spirited, unjust, lawless, occupied tyranny.

  8. @Dr. Charles Fhandrich

    If we had an actual second political party, they would’ve already impeached #FraudsidentDiaper TWICE, for botching the crapghanistan withdrawal and encouraging a border invasion by the third world. A third impeachment for sabotaging our oil production would also be reasonable.

  9. What would you people do if some little fact, some little position, some little explanation proved by some extraordinary means to be absolutely incontrovertibly true? And it was something liberals say? Would you die? Would you lie? Would you spin? Or would you accept the truth because it is the truth, as people ought to.

    Now, before you start calling names–I would like to ask the exact question of liberals, only changing the word, “liberals,” to the word, “conservatives.”

    Because I promise you, no matter how true anything, anything at all is, you will never ever ever accept it unless it somehow fits into your little political straitjacket mindset.

    No, to be fair, Kevin Barrett explained to me awhile back, transcripts are complicated and not a little expensive. This morning I found a podcast with Kevin and Ron (the less Kevin and the more Ron the better, Ron is most eloquent) and it was very good-George Noory good. But 99%of podcasts lead off with two minutes of headbanging metal rock which feathers off to 3 minutes of pleasantries, unfortunately a part of Noory and Coast2Coast, which then becomes excellent talk radio, so you live with it. And I just can’t get through that crap in conventional podcasting. I guess that’s just me, but the proof it’s not only me is the low comment counts on nearly all the podcasts. I know podcasts have good stuff, but the speed with which we read is probably 20:1 over the tempo of most podcasts because not everyone is Ron Unz(not to blow sunshine up Ron’s bloomers, just that he’s very good where he’s given his head of steam). Nature of the beast.

    The GOP should have a list of ten articles of impeachment drawn up for the moment they get back control of Congress.

    Enemy lists should be prepared for every judge who supported no-bail incarceration for J6. Every little POS who was involved in the 2020 election steal or Trump impeachment should be named and sought out for retribution.

    Any disloyal brass in the military should be identified. There’s no honor in pulling punches against those who deserve it.

  13. @beavertales

    I could not agree more. Then, we might finally clean up this supposed two party gang of hoods. They represent the American citizens, about as much as a rattlesnake does. Force them into revealing that they are one and the same. When Trump was president, McConnell went behind his back every fricking chance he got. What does he do for the folks in Kentucky anyway, but support the democrats who hate Kentuckians

  14. @Dr. Charles Fhandrich

    I’d agree, but it is the House that impeaches, and the Senate that tries for removal, so pseudocon McCarthy is your go-to guy to kick off the process.

    Well informed moms are the future of our children.

    The more obvious stables that need a Herculean cleaning are the federal bureaucracy include Alphabet City.

  17. @The Alarmist

    Absolutely. I had meant McCarthy but think the reason for my mistake is all of the Irish names. LOL

    transcripts are complicated and not a little expensive

    Host the interview via modern methods of communication [text, DM, email, what have you] and the transcripts write themselves. This also gives respondents some time to craft more cogent and considered replies.

    You can’t beat totalitarians by playing by the rules, if you start to win they’ll just change those rules. Of course you won’t be allowed in the arena in the first place.
