1554 - Chris Lehmann: Andrew Sullivan's Anti-Intersectionality Idiocy & Padraig O'Malley: Remembering Martin McGuinness and the Irish Struggle
Chris Lehmann: editor, columnist, and author on how the current anti-PC fixation is an echo from the 1990's PC hysteria. Where Andrew Sullivan's problems with intersectionality came from. Sullivan's borderline crazy belief intersectionality is a "religion," contrasted with his softening of Charles Murray's "race science." Jonathan Chait, Andrew Sullivan, etc and their preoccupation and phobia of criticism from the left. Why are colleges allowing the American Enterprise Institute colonize their institutions?
Padraig O'Malley: Remembering Martin McGuinness - The story of Martin McGuinness and his struggle against violent oppression. McGuinness joining the IRA after Bloody Sunday. How conflicts evolve to higher level of violence. The history of the IRA and the Irish struggle. McGuinness' alleged role in the times of rising violence, and his belief there is "no peace without forgiveness."
On the fun half - Jeffrey Lord on Trump's "Americanese," Misogyny and anti-PC in the 'rational skeptic' communities, Al Franken hits Neil Gorsuch on his "Frozen Trucker" case, Amanda Carpenter slams Ivanka's nepotism, Whitehouse back into slamming Gorsuch, GOP Rep Massie gets 275 calls against Ryancare and 4 for it, and Wayne (Rex Tillerson) Tracker didn't want to be Secretary of State.
