Liberal Dan Radio 07/29/2020: Season Finale: American’s Frontline Scam Artists

On the July 29, 2020 episode of Liberal Dan Radio

The Trump family got in trouble with social media for sharing false information on videos, which includes false information from a group called “America’s Frontline Doctors”. We will be going into who this group is, why the people in it shouldn’t be trusted, and why the right only has false information left to use. 

Also, Donald Trump signed executive orders about prescription drug prices that some of the people I know who support him are raving about. However, what do we really know about the orders and who they effect. We will go into them in more detail. 

Finally, I will be premiering the new Liberal Dan Radio commercial which is a parody of a song from Hamilton and taking your calls as well. I will even be announcing a fundraiser idea pertaining to it as well. 

All those issues and more on Liberal Dan Radio, Talk From the Left, That’s Right. Wednesdays at 8pm central on BlogTalkRadio. 

If you are listening after the live broadcast you can leave comments on the show thread at liberaldan.com, on the Liberal Dan Facebook page, and @liberaldanradio on Twitter.

Liberal Dan Radio 7/22/2020: Trump wishes Ghislaine well.

On the July 22, 2020 episode of Liberal Dan Radio

Trump wished Ghislaine Maxwell good wishes. I wonder why that could be. Hmm? 

Covid19 is still going on. New Orleans is going to require distance learing for August. The Florida chapter of the National Association of Pediatrics is telling Florida that they should reconsider opening. We will discuss Covid19 with schools and beyond as well. (Since Trump is holding his virus updates again). 

Nick Cannon is getting backlash from people for apologizing now. For me, actions will speak louder than words. But his speaking with Rabbis about why he was promoting anti-semitism is a good start. Let’s see if he follows through. 

All those issues and more on Liberal Dan Radio, Talk From the Left, That’s Right. Wednesdays at 8pm central on BlogTalkRadio.

Liberal Dan Radio 07/15/2020: Cannon Fired

On the July 15, 2020 episode of Liberal Dan Radio

Nick Cannon got fired. Now, some people are mad at him about his comments about “white people”. That don’t bother me. What bothers me is the anti-semitism. I will get into that, this history of Jews and Black People standing together against white supremacy, how HBCU stood with Jews, and why we should be the last people who should be fighting. We should always speak truth to power. His comments were not truth. 

The Trump administration has moved hospital reporting from the CDC to HHS. This is highly problematic. 

Taking your calls on these issues and more tonight on Liberal Dan Radio, Talk From The Left, That’s Right.

Liberal Dan Radio 07/08/2020: School’s out forever?

On the July 8, 2020 episode of Liberal Dan Radio

President Trump touted Sweden as a reason that we should go back to schools. What is he drinking? 

The Supreme Court had several rulings this week, two with some very odd rulings that I will go into. Should your employer be able to control the contraception coverage on your health insurance plan? I say no and explain why. Also, does age discrimination count if you’re working for a faith based school? Apparenty you can do it all you want. 

The Trump Administration is also telling students on a foreign visa that if their schools are digital next semester that they can’t stay. I will go into why that is horrible. 

Those topics and  more, tonight on Liberal Dan Radio, Talk From The Left, That’s Right! 

You are of course welcome to call in if you are listening live (or you can join the chat). If you are listening after the live broadcast you can leave comments on the show thread at liberaldan.com, on the Liberal Dan Facebook page, and @liberaldanradio on Twitter.

Liberal Dan Radio 07/01/2020: I was right on Roberts, “Save America”, and more…

On the July 1, 2020 episode of Liberal Dan Radio

We are halfway through a year that feels like it’s lasted a decade. 

I would do a “mid-year review” but the year has been pretty much dominated by Covid-19 and racism. (And I’ve been talking about that all year). 

The Supreme Court did rule against the Louisiana abortion ban. I will go into why that’s importand and how I called my shot. 

Two local radio show hosts are planning a July 4th rally. It is looking to be a hate fuelled bugaloo bash in Baton Rouge. 

And, of course, there is more Covid-19 data coming out, so we will continue to discuss that. 

All those issues and more on Liberal Dan Radio, talk from the left, that’s right, wednesdays at 8pm central on BlogTalkaRadio.com/liberaldan.

Liberal Dan Radio 06/24/2020: Gaetz-Gate

On the June 24th episode of Liberal Dan Radio

After his argument with Louisiana Congressman Cedric Richmond, Republican Matt Gaetz revealed that he had a son. Or did he? Who is this person? Why was he such a secret? I am not the only person who believes this to be weird.

Donald Trump went to Tulsa and proved that he is an idiot. Until November, I have an open invitation for anyone who still supports Donald Trump to call in and explain how you can justify that action. What about him is Presidential? How can you support him still? It boggles the mind. 

And, of course, we will continue to discuss the Covid19 pandemic and Police Brutality. Taking your calls as well. 

You are of course welcome to call in if you are listening live (or you can join the chat). If you are listening after the live broadcast you can leave comments on the show thread at liberaldan.com, on the Liberal Dan Facebook page, and @liberaldanradio on Twitter.

Liberal Dan Radio 06/17/2020: Open Lines! Call in.

On the June 17, 2020 episode of Liberal Dan Radio

John McDonough Statue

John McDonough represents one of the many connections between New Orleans and Baltimore. He created an endowment that funded many New Orleans Public Schools. That same endowment funded what would become a private school in Maryland.

He was born in Baltimore. He participated in shipping. A second trip to New Orleans convinced him to buy property here as well. He was a slaveowner in Louisiana. Oddly enough, he did teach some of his slaves to read and write (against Louisiana Law). He also freed (some?) slaves after 15 years of work and helped them move to Africa as freed people. Some didn’t go after being freed.

Today, a group of protesters toon down a statue to him, drug it to a truck, and dumped it in the river.

Not all heroes wear capes…

Liberal Dan Radio 06/10/2020: @BarackObama was wrong, there are Two Americas.

On the June 10th, 2020 episode of Liberal Dan Radio

I will be discussing what I had promised a couple weeks ago. Barack Obama famously said that we don’t have two Americas. That we have “one America, the United States of America”. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. The corona virus pandemic helps prove this and I will be discussing several ways this is true. 

Another way it is true is the whole #DefundThePolice movement. I will be discussing some of the issues pertaining to misconceptions of people who hear buzzords and insist they must mean what they dont. 

I will also be reading an anonymous letter submitted to the show, and taking your calls. 

You are of course welcome to call in if you are listening live (or you can join the chat). If you are listening after the live broadcast you can leave comments on the show thread at liberaldan.com, on the Liberal Dan Facebook page, and @liberaldanradio on Twitter.

An Armed Society…

Earlier I called into The John Mason Show after a caller suggested that “if you defund the police, you will end up with everyone armed and it will be like the ‘wild west'”.

This was amazing to me. Normally, Conservatives are the people who will cite Robert Heinlein by saying “an armed society is a polite society” and encouraging everyone to own guns. They will fight for not only the right to own guns, but to carry them wherever one may go.

But all of a sudden, when they believe no police will be around*, the politeness stops and we now become the Wild West? How can this be? Have we exposed yet another hypocrisy of the right? Or is this just the same old hypocrisy coming forward in a new form?

The NRA, which is really all about gun sales and not gun ownership, didn’t stop Reagan from passing gun control legislation in California. We hardly ever see the NRA fighting for black people to own guns. Many Conservatives were silent on “stop and frisk” laws that disproportionately targeted black and latino men in the streets. What happened to their right to bear arms?

The answer is that Conservatives don’t believe that most black people should have guns. They are scared of black skin by itself, do you think they want someone with black skin holding a gun? This video is comical, but is based in this truth.

So basically, white Conservatives want to be able to own guns and carry guns, in case the police are not there. However, if the police will never be there, they are terrified of black people with guns. The “polite society” becomes the “wild west” depending on who is carrying. It’s sheer hypocrisy.

*The idea that no police will be around is clearly not a valid understanding of the movement to defund or disband the police. I will be discussing this more on the podcast this week, but you can also watch the following video (start at about minute 25 if you want to get right to that subject).
