The Last Episode: Taking on the Racists of the New Anti-Racism
On this 65th and final episode (with assurances to all that VDH will be offering his wisdom on other podcast venues in the very near future), Victor discusses bureaucrats and their mask permutations, the GOP’s likely impossible search for another Shane, the racist benchmarks of the BLM-Woke Axis, and the limits of how much 'ruin' America can sustain before it’s . . . ruined. This episode is sponsored by Shraga Kawior and the Bradley Foundation’s speak series, 'We the People.'
Our First Woke President
Victor discusses the Joe Biden who never was, the political uses of the death of Officer Sicknick, Biden’s determination to upset the peace Trump handed him, Maxine Waters’s riot-mongering, the declining role of religion in America, the stale immigration dreams of George W. Bush, and the highs and lows of General Douglas MacArthur.
Victor discusses the rationale behind the elites’ wokeness, the cannibalism of revolutions, how race trumps all, the MSM’s preference for the noble lie, and the value of the American iconoclast. This episode is sponsored by Shraga Kawior.
MLB Failing MLK
Victor takes on Joe Biden, golden-goose-strangler; the radical new rules imposed on post-America; COVID realities in the face of expert lockdown-love; Delta, Major League Baseball, and other big business virtue-signalers accommodating the Woke Police (while deal-making with Red China’s oppressors); and Young Victor meets Martin Luther King Jr. in 1965.
The Masking Marauder
Victor takes on the latest Fauci winging-it, flip-floppery; whether America is committing suicide; the trouble of our military’s progressive “recalibration”; the bizarre morality of anti-racism racism; and reflections on pal Conrad Black’s argument that the Trump-Hate coalition is crumbling.
In a Feeble Position
Victor discusses America’s new class warfare, the foreign-policy consequences of our feeble POTUS, the Biden administration’s getting out-manipulated by Red China and Russia, how the “party of science” loves superstition and prefers ideology, and a media starting to weakly admit that Scranton Joe owns the border crisis.
Simply the Best
If you want to be informed and learn from a person who is unafraid to speak his mind and offer his opinions, I could not recommend a show more highly. I have followed VDH for years and find him brilliant.
There is no better communicator of conservative thinking than VDH. He is very articulate and level-headed and speaks to you in such an understandable and low-key approach.
This podcast became my most favorite hour of the week. I will really miss it.
Thank you for the 65 episodes. I enjoyed every one of them.
I cannot wait for your return.
uggghh... dont go
I listen as much as i can... so deep in knowledge and perspective. VDH your an amazing person . Thank you.
Say it ain’t so!
I listened to all 65 episodes and wish VDH and NR did them twice a week. But now I see that this is the last episode and it is such a shame. This is/was the best podcast that I had the pleasure to listen too. I hope the Classist podcast will have a more in depth format like this. Sorry to see it go.
