    NYGBC: Author Intro Alex Jones

    This Week we begin our review of “The Great Reset” by Alex Jones with our review of the man himself. This time around, because we covered the basics of Alex in our Lunatic Fringe episode on him, we spend more time looking at him in his own words, listening to clips of Alex throughout the years to try to understand the man who has done possibly more than anyone else to drag the republican party towards its current conspiracy focused state.
     


    I have to give a huge amount of credit to the Knowledge Fight podcast, expert on all things Alex Jones, and my personal source for the vast majority of my information about the man himself. You can find them wherever you get podcasts, or at https://knowledgefight.com/.

    NYGBC: The Kids are Not Alright: Conservative Youth Culture on Campus

    NYGBC: The Kids are Not Alright: Conservative Youth Culture on Campus

    This week we continue the lunatic fringe series about how the far right became the moderate center of conservatism with an episode about the toxic sludge that is conservative youth culture. We explore this vapid pool of nuclear waste through the lens of three different groups, the traditional college republicans of Ben Shapiro, the hype-beasts over at TPUSA, and the openly white supremacist College Republicans United. All three of these groups have contributed to the scariest lurch rightward in conservatism of the last decade, and fostered the rebirth of fascism in America in their own ways.

    NYGBC: American Marxism Final Chapter

    NYGBC: American Marxism Final Chapter

    This week! At long last we finally come to the end of our review of Markl Levin’s book “American Marxism” in which we have—I am sad to say—Not been convinced of Mark’s premise that Biden and Nancy Pelosi are in fact Marxist infiltrators bent on destroying capitalism and turning your child trans. This final chapter is the first really in which Mark writes in his own words rather than gigantic out of context block quotes, and the end of the book leaves us thinking really that if Mark had written the entire book in this way it really could have been one of the most entertaining works of fascist propaganda we’ve read yet. Sadly, we got this crap instead.

    NYGBC: They Rise for the Purpose of Falling: Perennial Candidates and the Election Grift

    NYGBC: They Rise for the Purpose of Falling: Perennial Candidates and the Election Grift

    This week, we take an official detour from the lunatic Fringe series to journey into the wild woods of grifter political candidates who make a living and a following off of hopeless campaigns for office to “take America back.” Those we are talking about today include Deanna Lorraine, a California based failure to launch who took on Nancy Pelosi, and still appears to be working on getting that redpilled dating coach business off the ground. Omar Navarro, Deanna’s ex-boyfriend who spent 2020 primary season in jail for harassing Deanna, and the crème de la crème Laura Loomer, who not only once shackled herself to Twitter HQ, she also shackled herself to a losing proposition.

    These colorful figures of the right continually give it their all, but wouldn’t you know it, they just don’t have enough to give.

    NYGBC: Prager RoUlette Where in the World is Benedict Edition

    NYGBC: Prager RoUlette Where in the World is Benedict Edition

    This week, with Benedict on vacation once again we pull out the old low effort clip show format to fill some time and entertain your earballs. Of course given the time frame in which we are currently existing the right wing media-sphere is so completely controlled by one issue and one issue alone, the FBI search warrant on the home of a white supremacist compound in Florida. Despite that I tried to create a bit of variety for all of you and pulled in a few other videos with different topics.

    We’ll be back next week with the next episode in the Lunatic Fringe series.

    NYGBC: American Marxism Chapter 7 Part 1

    NYGBC: American Marxism Chapter 7 Part 1

    This week, in our penultimate episode on this book we begin the long horrible wind-down of Mark Levin’s fiction masterpiece “American Marxism” with the first half of the final chapter “We Choose Liberty,” in which Mark Levin tells his readers that they ,must ban together in “citizens committees” for the purpose of restricting the liberty of public school children to learn any unapproved information, and to attack teachers, principals, school administrators and all the other Marxists who might think schools should teach about why we needed the civil rights act or that its ok to not be straight and cisgender.

    In a true tour de force, reminiscent of such triumphant finishes as those of Dinesh D’Souza and Julius Evola, in not as many words Mark concludes like so many of his forebears that the solution to all of the Marxist infiltration of America today, both the virtually nonexistent real, and the imagined which makes up the majority, is of course, fascism. SO come join us and enjoy as we laugh over the persistent right wing slide into open support of fascism that we’ve been seeing for the last 20 years with the final chapter of Mark Levin’s book.

    As a reminder Benedict will be on vacation next week so we are pre-recording next week’s episode which will be a round of Prager RoUlette.

Basically God Awful Bookclub

I was turned on to this from the quote on scathing atheist! I’ve been looking for a show like this, cause I can’t get enough of these horrible books. Very well researched and entertaining

AOT is LAME

After listening for almost a year, I was finally driven to write this review in response to the recent recommendation of Attack on Titan, which is lame. Attack on Titan is so lame that this review will almost completely neglect to mention the thoughtful and funny political commentary provided by the hosts throughout the year. Seriously, with the prophecies of Akira, the techniques of Motoko, and the agencies of Chaldea Security Organization, even Marjorie Taylor Greene can appreciate the significance of the Malevolent Grain Trichotomy. The laughing man laughed.
