The truth

In a world so dominated by corporate influence...this is one of the few outlets for an alternate view. Too many Americans are so disengaged that they cannot see the truth about American Imperialism today.

Excellent work

Ah snap! I didn’t know Abby had a brother. I’m glad I found this show. I think because I listened to Eyes Left. I think I tunes tries making these shows hard to find. I specifically typed “Abby Martin” in the podcast search a couple months ago and only empire files showed up. This is real leftist stuff. Not that fake David pakman, Kyle kulinski crap. By the way, and this may irritate some comrades, but not all leftists hate guns. Some of us see the reality on the ground with right wing violence, white hate groups, and collaboration between police and alt right groups. Some of us are going to the range and practicing responsible gun ownership because we don’t want our claws and fangs removed if we ever have to DEFEND ourselves from Christian fundamentalists, alt right violence, and white terrorists. It’s ok to support Medicare for all, good wages, unions, housing, free college and own scary semi automatic black rifles capable of holding magazines that can hold more than ten rounds. David pakman calms me a gun fetishist and thinks I have below average IQ for this stance. Go interview Alex Jones Ex wife again David pakman while the rest of us do the important work.

Gaslighting on MAGA Gaslighting

I’ve been a fan of Abby for 3-4 years, but had to stop listening after the January 27, 2019 episode, Trump’s Venezuela Coup, Democrats Running in 2020, MAGA Gaslighting.

IT’S IRONIC THAT THEY TALK ABOUT THE ALT-RIGHT HIJACKING THE MEDIA NARRATIVE TO GASLIGHT PEOPLE INTO THINKING THE KIDS AREN’T THE PROVOCATEURS(which is clearly true if you watch the full, unedited video), WHILE THEY GASLIGHT THEIR LISTENERS AND SAY THE COVINGTON HIGH SCHOOL KIDS WERE THE PROVOCATEURS.

This was even after they claim to have watched the full, unedited video. They seem to be afflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome and aren’t perceiving reality clearly. They claim the black Israelite group was “heckling” each other, despite clearly harassing the kids. They claim the drummer didn’t walk directly into the center of the crowd of kids, which he clearly did.

Maybe they’ve walked back these statements on subsequent episodes or social media, but if they did, I’m not aware of it. You lost a fan.
