Missing episode1

Where is ep 1?

Just stop

BLM, Antifa, et al are rioting, burning down cities, causing chaos and untold harm. So sick of the liberal lies trying to cover up their crimes and recreate reality as if it’s a white supremacy problem.

And I knew it was bad…

If you don’t think there is hate and fascism knocking at the door, listen to this podcast and the investigative reporting here will verify and then validate your darkest notions of how far down the rabbit hole groups of mostly young, white men have fallen. The historical review in episode 6 was stunning. Thank you for taking risky chances so we all could get a firmer grip on this new abnormal 2.0
