    SDDP 019 Forced Birth Crank Yankers

    SDDP 019 Forced Birth Crank Yankers

    This week, the Republican Governor of South Dakota, Kristi Noem, and her anti-immigration stance, framed within the broader Republican agenda and alignment with former President Donald Trump's re-election campaign for 2024. Noem's efforts to push immigration as a critical political issue, her support of Trump's policies, and her critique of South Dakota reporters for insufficient coverage of her chosen issues.
    Specific political actions are highlighted, such as the deployment of South Dakota National Guard troops to Texas, Noem's controversial book release, and her handling of national media attention. The narrative expands on broader issues, such as the testing of Mount Rushmore’s water for PFAS contamination, illustrating environmental concerns juxtaposed with political maneuvering.
    Interspersed with these themes are humorous or satirical verses and personal narratives, skewering a broad array of targets from specific policies and political figures to wider societal issues like race, women's rights, election integrity, and legacy media’s role in politics. The deployment of hyperbolic statements, especially towards the end, exaggerates for effect, critiquing former President Trump, political rallies, and even personal disgust towards politicians.

    The episode begins with an anecdotal story that discusses local South Dakota politics, including the Yankton Sioux Tribe's decision to ban Governor Kristi Noem from their reservation, responses to governmental policies, and reflections on Noem’s controversial actions and public image. It then shifts to cover state-wide concerns such as staffing mandates affecting the long-term healthcare industry, Rick Weiland's involvement in ballot measures to influence public policy, and the challenges faced by Native American tribal nations regarding federal funding for law enforcement and education. The podcast also delves into broader political discussions, including critiques of Republican party members for allegedly echoing Russian talking points, proposals for federal marijuana policy change, and the potential for South Dakota to join the passenger rail network. The episode closes on a controversial note, with a fictional or out-of-context statement expressing disdain for puppies, among other things.

    It's just a little deep fake campaign ad from an alternate timeline where Trump wasn't disgusted by Gov Kristi Neom now.
