We are skipping the boralogue on this Labor Day weekend and diving right into the show with our first guest. Dan Gainor (www.mrc.org), Vice President of Business and Culture at Media Research Center, compares the Left’s attempts today at revising our history with Mao’s Cultural Revolution in the 1960s.
Continuing our series on free speech, Edmund Kozak (www.lifezette.com), political reporter with Lifezette, joins us to discuss censorship against conservatives by Facebook and Twitter and whether Google’s immense size qualifies it as a public utility.
Can Islam integrate into Western culture? Award-winning journalist and television producer Christine Douglass-Williams (www.jihadwatch.org) looks at Islam’s struggle between modernizing and retaining sharia law, and the West’s inability to discuss the issue due to political correctness.
Journalistic credibility, already at an historic low, took another hit this week. Curtis Houck (www.newsbusters.org), Managing Editor of NewsBusters, reports that after a Wall Street Journal editor asked his reporters to write fair, opinion-free stories, the New York Times and other leftists expressed outrage. Of course they did.
John’s quote of the week:
“There was an article in the New York Times and the author noted that hate speech was the same as physical violence and therefore we need to treat it that way. Do you realize that if we had had that same litmus test in this country, we never would have had an American revolution? We never would have had a country.”
Our Section 6 intelligence brief is taking Labor Day off, but John will be back next week with more analysis on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.
