88 - Listen To A Progressive Third World Leader Tell Us In His Own Words The Truth Our Mass Media Ignores

Today we're going to hear a progressive Third World leader in his own voice.

Throughout Latin America, the impoverished masses, who sometimes constitute on outright majority of their nations' populations, are rising up and electing progressive leaders. These progressive leaders promise to rule in the interests of the majority, not a small elite super-wealthy group at the top.

And that's just what these progressive leaders are doing, much to the consternation -- and public whining, ranting and raving -- of both local and US right-wingers.

One such progressive leader is Evo Morales of Bolivia. He was elected in a landslide in December 2005. Since then, he has delighted the poor majority in Bolivia, with his pro-social justice measures.

In this podcast you'll hear excerpts from an interview of Morales conducted by Amy Goodman on her wonderful Democracy Now program.

Morales laments past US violence against his nation, and explains his administration's current efforts to end centuries of exploitation by the West.

In addition to the theme of the Third World poor taking power and achieving economic justice, we'll note some sub-themes.

They are: as in the past, so in the present. As in one Third World country, so in another. And as abroad, so at home here in the US.

In other words, right-wingers are the same, throughout history, and all over the world.

I'll also give you details of the next Blast The Right Live Call-in show.

(PS: Right-wingers, if you want to write in to me, fine, but at least do me the courtesy of listening to the podcast first. Please don't respond just on the basis of the brief preview above. Thanks!!)

Wonderful program. Congratulations Jack. It sounds that finally South America is moving towards its freedom from the opressive interference of corporate interests. Morales has enormous obstacles on front of him but hopefully reason will prevail over money power which has been detroying a great continent for centuries. How can the forces of the right not understand what they are doing? It is really a crime.

Jack, Jack, Jack...
Amazing show! My, my, if a person isn't moved by this show, they are so hard and cold that I fear for their soul!

Thank you for your hard work!

I like your podcast on Evo Morales. I think it open the eyes of a lot of people that don't see what US has been doing in third world countries for centuries. It's not only Bolivia, is every country that is not in the same page as the US. They don't want the left or as they like to call them, the comunists, to take care of their people.
If they have resources that the US wants (oil), we'll breew some conflict and put in power the goverment that will sell their resources more cheaper to the US.
Keep up the good word of telling things as they are.

Great podcast - a must listen to
Jack Clark documents the right's wars on the poor, civil liberties, the right of workers to organize at work and obtain a decent working wage and work conditions, and against other countries who refuse to accept American domination. Jack provides all the sources so that you can see for yourself how the right is out to enrich itself at the expense of everyone else. Great job, Jack!

awesome show
Clark always backs up his statements against the right wing with fact and data, which gives him all the more credibility. As conglomerate media controlled by politics clouds the mainstream news media, Jack Clark, along with NPR and Democracy Now! have become my primary news source. Awesome podcast!

In-Depth, Meaty, Hardcore Knowledge
This podcast is not just entertainment, humor, chimp-bashing, or gee-whiz recap of the weeks events. Instead, it hits hard and in-depth on the world economic situation and how right-wing policies impact the poor and less advantaged all over the world. He examines Americas support of the World Bank, IMF,multinational corporations, etc., and connects the dots. This is a podcast for grown-ups. He gives good reasons why the right wing is NOT living up to its precious Bible, without putting down the Bible. As a Jesus-loving Christian and moderate Democrat, I respect this podcast for its subject matter. The grown-up manner of the speaker is just icing on the cake. He IS funny, but hes not trying to be, he just has a deadpan delivery but doesnt have to make jokes to make it interesting. The facts make it interesting and devastating.

A Breath of Fresh Air
Jack Clarks Blast the Right podcast is truly a breath of fresh air when it comes to political commentary. Jack is not like some commentators who simply climb on their soap box and state their own opinions as fact. Instead, Jack welcomes competent challenges to his way of thinking, and with logical analysis and sound research, debunks the lies, distortions, and self-deceptions of the right wing. I strongly recommend Blast the Right for people who seek the truth and care more about the long term health and well-being of the whole citizenry than the short term personal gain advocated by modern conservatives. Listen as Jack carefully shows how the high-sounding "God and country" rhetoric of the right wing is really just a smokescreen for policies that ultimately lead only to the increased misery, suffering, and death of the less fortunate for the particular benefit of the wealthy and the well-connected. And, if you find yourself in agreement, return to Podcast Alley to place your vote! Thanks!
