Ep 810: Seeing The Republican Fascist Matrix
The Professional Left Podcast with Driftglass and Blue Gal
by Driftglass and Blue Gal
2w ago
There are a small number of people who are Agents of American fascism.  These are the Steve Bannons, Tim Pools and Stephen MIllerses.  Stone-cold nazis with a clear agenda.  Then there is a much larger group – the reprogrammable meatbags of the Republican base.  They think they've taken the "red pill" when they clearly just like the steak Fox and Newsmax are feeding them.   Then there is a group who have learned to actually see the Republican fascist and their both-sides media enablers Matrix as it is operating in the real world in real-time.  Guess who.  ..read more

Rake-stepping with the worst witness in the legal "defense" of Donald Trump... The not-at-all-shocking reports that Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito raised multiple (red?  of course!) flags (ahem) supporting the events of January 6th's  Capitol attack... ...and Nikki Haley's not-at-all surprising endorsement of Trump for the 2024 Republican nomination because of course she did.  Keep the faith and deep breath!  More at proleftpod.com.

There are ventriloquist dummies, and then there are dummies like Senator Tommy Tuberville. What did Blue Gal think was the most revealing moment of the Michael Cohen testimony?   Driftglass says he is willing to try to be "more polarizing" than David French.  All this and a news round-up with our home state winning a special designation!  More at proleftpod.com.  Our podcast YouTube Channel:  https://www.youtube.com/@ProfessionalLeft Support the show: PayPal |  https://paypal.me/proleftpodcast Patreon | https://patreon.com/proleftpod Grave Injustice The makeup o ..read more

Ep 803: God's Will Or Somebody Else's Fault
The Professional Left Podcast with Driftglass and Blue Gal
by Driftglass and Blue Gal
1M ago
We kick things off with a whimsical tangent about "sacred chickens" - those unquestioned assumptions and mythologies that societies cling to, even in the face of contradictory evidence. This leads to a deeper discussion about the concept of "phenomenology" and how subjective experience of reality can be manipulated (see Fox News). From there, we dive deep into one of America's most pernicious "sacred chickens" - the racist "birther" conspiracy theory that falsely claimed former President Barack Obama was not born in the United States. And we examine how it gained traction, in large part due to ..read more
