Trump adviser and alt-right guru Steve Bannon greets corporate supporters at the White House.
Trump’s White House in-house Joseph Goebbels, Steve Bannon, issued a directive to the press yesterday.
This is straight out of the Goebbels playbook.
Some want to argue whether the Trumpists fit somebody’s definition of fascists or not.
But I say if it walks like a Nazi duck don’t be surprised that somebody punches the duck in the face.
Quick quiz: Who said the following? Goebbels or Bannon?
“Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play.”
I’ll leave you guessing or Googling.
Part of building a dynamic movement of resistance is paying attention, closely following what they say, even including keeping up with reading Trump’s tweets.
“I just can’t read that stuff anymore,” a friend said to me the other day. “It’s too depressing.”
No. We have to pay attention as we build our movement of resistance.
The good folks at Chicago’s community non-profit radio station WLPN, 105.5FM and streaming live at http://www.lumpenradio.com have agreed to let me and my brother, Mike Klonsky have an hour slot on their station at 11AM on Friday, February 3rd.
Right now it is an idea and this is a one-time pilot. If it works, if they like it, you like it and we like it it will turn into a regular deal.
Our in-studio guest will be Troy LaRaviere, notorious and appreciated for his very public critiques of Rahm’s education policies, former principal at Blaine Elementary and now President of the Chicago Association of Principals and Administrators.
It will mainly be talk, with a tiny little bit of music thrown in. We have been working on some format ideas.
But mostly it will look like what happens when my brother and I get together over coffee to discuss, sometimes argue – often laugh – about what’s going on in the world and here at home.
And this is no time to shut up.
