Right Winger called the radio station to complain about my leftist message HERE'S MY CALL TO HER!
I got a message from my KPFT 90.1 FM Station manager. A listener complained about my suggestion that we nationalize oil. Here is what happened when I called her back.
Watch Politics Done Right T.V. here.
Like most Americans, I am upset about inflation and gasoline price extortion. I have done many radio shows explaining why both are farces. From elementary school to graduate school to business school, our education system brainwashed us to believe in an ordained economic system. They made our thinking, in many areas, anathema to both math and reality. Worse, it prevented us accept the word of those with ulterior economic interests on faith.
I provided a complete segment detailing why the price of gasoline is a farce. At the end of the radio segment, I said we should nationalize specific industries like energy and healthcare delivery to stabilize our economy. Many jump on that statement as being Marxist. Ironically, those in business who echo that sentiment are the same ones that say companies want predictability and stability.
If it were up to the corporate sector, they would privatize everything. Ironically, that is a recipe for economic collapse because of the permutations that expand the degrees of failure. But that is for another more expansive blog post.
The listener called the radio station to tell them that she would stop donating to the radio station because of my “Marxist” ideas. Interestingly, the support for the message I am putting out brings us more new station supporters than losses because I justify my positions unabashedly.
It was clear talking to this lovely lady that so much misinformation and factless information surrounded her that specific keywords triggered her. When I asked specific questions, she could not help but agree. But that muscle memory of the nonsensical information continuously pulled her. But ultimately, it was clear that she went from a person uninterested in discourse to one that would allow her mind to open.
Many continue to give me hell from engaging these folks. All of these videos that I do will have zero effects on those with liberated minds, progressive minds, or those prone to independent thinking. But it will plant seeds in many who quietly listen. I point out a lot of this in my book “It's Worth It: How to Talk To Your Right-Wing Relatives, Friends, and Neighbors.“
I know many want us to concentrate on the Progressive base. We must do both. The Right is relatively successful with a corrosive and destructive ideology because they invest in talking to people in every corner that will allow them to enter. We cede rural America and the red states to the Right because we are often unwilling to meet people where they are. Some don’t have the patience. I, along with many others, do. We must invest in both methods, especially now, where misinformation is in vogue and ubiquitous.
My books support (1) communication techniques & (2) our ability to continue delivering the progressive message: How to make America Utopia: Take away the economy from those who rigged it,” “It's Worth It: How to Talk To Your Right-Wing Relatives, Friends, and Neighbors” & “As I See It: Class Warfare: The Only Resort To Right Wing Doom.”
