John Loeffler: Truth Becomes a Casualty

There are rules for thee, but not for me. Seems to be the woke battle cry today. In this week’s premium boralogue, John looks at the outrage against people and companies for thoughts and policies that were completely reasonable five minutes ago. Your words and deeds will be targeted, but eventually, even your silence will be labeled racism. John breaks down several logical fallacies wrapped up in progressive narratives. When words are weaponized in pursuit of those narratives, truth becomes a casualty.

Hijacking the Narrative

Login to access this full program.

If you are feeling angst this week amidst all the chaos, you’re not alone. In this week’s boralogue, John lays out the different levels surrounding the riots and protests. There are those who are fomenting division to further their narrative; power brokers who are funding the riots; and politicians who are taking advantage of it. We’re dealing with complex questions, but there’s a vested interest behind the scenes to quash the truth and hijack the narrative.

Victor Davis HansonWhile chaos and anarchy abounds, important information gets drowned out by media reports rife with falsehoods. Back by popular demand is Victor Davis Hanson (www.victorhanson.com), Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution. He discusses the roles of African-Americans as well as Antifa following the death of George Floyd, and looks at how the media is stoking the fires by its anti-Trump stories and false narratives.

Phil MagnessWe pivot to another hijacked narrative: school choice and how it’s supposedly tied to segregation. Phillip Magness (www.aier.org), Senior Research Fellow at the American Institute for Economic Research, debunks that narrative, recalling the true history of school choice and how modern day educrats are the ones trying to eliminate it.

Charles NegyFinally, we look at the base of operations for many hijacked narratives: the college campus. Charles Negy (www.ucf.edu), Professor of Psychology at the University of Central Florida joins us to discuss his new book on white shaming and show how fairness and equality of standards should be applied to everyone, not just the politically correct.

What is the post-truth era? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the so-called post-truth age and how it’s strange that we could have gone from an era where progressives told us there was no such thing as truth to one where we move past it. They are trying to determine for us who is telling the truth and who is not. It’s a battle for free speech and one that we must win.

Politically correct ideologies are starting to rack up casualties on campuses, including professors. Michael Rectenwald (www.michaelrectenwald.com), Liberal Studies Professor at NYU, recounts his battle against social justice warriors whose tactics, they say, encourage tolerance but are in fact themselves intolerant.

Senator Mark Warner recently wrote a memo indicating that the government should intervene and regulate online press. Elizabeth Nolan Brown (www.reason.com), Associate Editor at Reason Magazine discusses how government control of the internet and regulation of social media giants could play out in the future.

On July 19, President Trump called the fake news media the real enemy of the people. Writer and photographer Henry Scanlon (www.henryscanlon.com) joins us to look at how the press purposefully misleads the public to further their many narratives and how it’s possible to be against the fake news media and still be for a free press.

John’s quote of the week:
This generation never learned how to think. And as a result, the only way that is left to enforce their ideas is brute force. We’re seeing the brute force in physical assaults but what is really troubling is the fact that they will not debate, they will not meet, and if any of their people cross the line to try to establish a bridge, they too will be attacked.

In this week’s Section 6, John and Producer Steve discuss several examples of media double standards involving stories on Islamic topics such as terror attacks and court proceedings.

What an Outrage!

What is the outrage du jour? With so many protests popping up and fading away, it’s hard to keep track of what people are mad about. In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the importance of watching what is not said and done as an indicator of an ourager’s motivations. Outrage only spreads outrage – it has no solutions or plans other than intense indignation. So what is the true purpose? Obstruction to the current administration – nothing more.

Outrage is everywhere, mostly against Trump supporters and members of his Cabinet. Why is it happening and is there another motive behind it? Author and Townhall.com columnist Derek Hunter (www.townhall.com) joins us to discuss what’s really behind the outrage, how dangerous it’s likely to become, and what, if anything, can be done about it.

John and Producer Steve go through recent Supreme Court decisions regarding President Trump’s travel ban, pregnancy centers and abortions, and internet sales taxes, as well as touch on the reactions from those who disagree with these decisions.

Outrage stems in large part from political correctness. Where did the concept of PC originate? Richard Hawkins (www.thetruthproject.org), Leader of Focus on the Family’s Truth Project, examines the Frankfurt School and the efforts to undermine the family, indoctrinate children, and revise the history of Western civilization.

John’s quote of the week:
Remember that the fight now is not just over truth. It is also over whether or not the Constitution – in the Union so conceived, as Abraham Lincoln said, which was founded in the Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776 – is going to long endure. The fight is over the Constitution and a level playing field.

In this week’s Section 6, John and Producer Steve discuss the SCOTUS decision on labor unions, lawsuits against the SPLC, and carbon pricing in Canada. They go on to examine the overall implications of the outrage and vitriol we see in today’s political arena.

Why are many Americans in a rush to pull down the freedoms our forefathers fought so hard to gain? In this week’s boralogue, John looks at the decline in freedoms in the United States, pointing out the hypocrisy from politically correct elites who preach against intolerance and microagressions – all in an intolerant and aggressive manner. It’s time to stand up against the nonsense and exercise our freedoms; or we may just lose them.

Can peace exist between Israel and Palestine when one side doesn’t want peace? Author and historian Dr. Robert Wolfe (www.robert-wolfe.com) joins us to discuss the prospects of both one- and two-state solutions and how donated money does not find its way to Palestinians that need it.

Bitcoin has emerged on the world scene as an oft-used electronic currency. David Ackerman (www.soundincomestrategies.com), Attorney and CCO at Sound Investment Strategies, reviews Bitcoin’s background and analyzes its value and whether it should be regulated.

The Constitution of the United States of America – is it really a living and breathing document? Michael Lee (www.unbiasedamerica.com), Columnist for Unbiased America, looks at how the document’s text has been tortured by activist judges to say things the founders never intended it to say. If you want to change the Constitution, there is an amendment process.

Finally, we circle back to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with Denis MacEoin (www.gatestoneinstitute.org), Senior Fellow at the Gatestone Institute, who examines the history of Islam in Jerusalem and the negative influence on the United Nations from Muslim countries and groups.

John’s quote of the week:
“The ideas of freedom and freedom of speech and freedom of conscience and freedom of religion are late arrivals in the history of the world. They are always under pressure and they haven’t even been expanded to the entire world yet. And they are under duress now in the one area where it came to birth.”
