    John Cardillo

    Conservative talker and former NYPD officer John Cardillo may not have much in common politically with Joe Walsh these days, but the two have always had a mutual respect and fondness for one another. In a warm and wide-ranging conversation, they discuss how they see each other's political journeys, whether there could be common ground on topics like Black Lives Matter, the highly politicized US Congress, how social media is not real, and much more.

    "We've made progress. We got a hell of a lot further to go."

    "We've made progress. We got a hell of a lot further to go."

    Joe comes from the world of right-wing media, so he knows better than most how willing those with influence over the Republican base are to peddle the narrative that the fight for racial justice is "nothing to see hear." And he also knows a thing or two about how the well-intentioned rhetoric on the left plays right into those peddlers' hands.

Loves his broadcasts

I have become a fan of Joe. I may not agree with everything he does, but I respect his beliefs because they come from a true part of himself and what he wants for his country.. I always identified with the left.. but I can honestly say, it is people like Joe who have brought me more to the middle.. I may even be becoming a conservative centrist..
I truly appreciate your podcast.. keep up the fight.. and your good work..

One of my favourite people to follow

I am almost polar opposite to Joe’s beliefs.
But I have an incredible amount of respect for him for what he sacrificed. I followed him on Twitter when I disliked him and it has felt like I watched him grow. And what he is, is an inspiration. It is very obvious he is intelligent and some of the views he had were directly related to peer influence. And even on my side of politics, we have blinders on. The social media age has us all living in an echo chamber. Joe is fighting to the bitter end to attempt to knock down the walls between left and right and to ultimately fight for democracy or fascism. We will never agree on certain aspects, Joe… but you will always have my support.

Free speech

Joe,

I never heard of you and learned of you when you chose a failed campaign vs Trump. I know you continue to self flagellate but seriously man. Free speech is uniquely American. This is where Americans show their ignorance and arrogance which is shrouded in American Exceptionalism.

Proud to be an American sure. Exceptional is the very essence of a self serving individual, egotistical, arrogant rhetoric and mind set.

Marketing is a very powerful tool. You’re now feeling that success because you are marketing yourself by trying to save lost souls. I know these people they are my peeps, I talk to them every day. And if I change just one mind I’m happy. You say I was them, Iwas blind, I didn’t know, I don’t think that way any more, I see the light. And your profiting off of your self flagellation, evangelical soul saving rhetoric, so people feel sorry and empathetic to support your new found vision, the shining light, if you will, before the Great American experiment with Democracy of profit over people, mass incarcerations, senseless school shooting, irresponsible gun owners, racism, greedy politicians, genocide, superiority over one another, and huge quality of life per capita disparities, is lost.

America is a unreasonably good country. I’m exercising my free speech. And I’m, you guessed it, not an American. I know your answer perpetual struggles make you stronger and wiser. Amen.

Regards,
