168 - Busting More Right-Wing Lies About The Arizona Immigration Statute / The Struggle Continues For Economic Justice

Today, more on the Arizona immigration law and efforts to fight this latest right-wing outrage. Plus, progressive efforts to achieve economic justice in New York and elsewhere. Right-wing racism rears its ugly head throughout. And you'll hear a clip of Glenn Beck you won't believe. Actually, you probably will, if you know him.

(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!!)

Scheduling note: episodes of Blast The Right will be posted every three weeks.

Decided to give Jack Clark a try today when I happened across him on iTunes. Jack did a great job of demonstrating the greed and oppression of the Right Wing. It was easy to see that the Right Wing is the cold, immoral demographic in the US. Jacks listeners are right to enjoy his use of fact to back up his statements.
Oops. Turns out "The Facts" point out something odd. Red states, or Right Wingers, give a significantly higher percentage of their income to charitable organizations. Sorry, forgot to give you the facts. http://blog.fortiusone.com/2009/01/07/dataset-of-the-day-who-is-more-generous-republicans-or-democrats/
Hypocrites exist on both sides. Liberals are only generous with other peoples money. Jack would rather give a man a fish, not teach a man to fish.
Greedy Right Wingers?! Ha! Take a closer look at your cherished statistics, Jack. Stay away from statistics where liberals spend our money, take a look at how generous liberals are with their own hard earned money.
Willing to bet the blog author will not have the guts to post this on his/her "objective" blog.

What Jeffrey does not understand the vital information from the previous podcasts from Blast the Right on the issue of no trickle down affect from wealth to Middle-class. Furthermore, Jeffrey does not address concern for the serious tax avoidance from the wealthy. So what if a few gives millions to so called charitable organization. What about the billions they stock pile and millions they could pay for providing decent work with a living wage to the Americans as they should?
What Blast the Right points out is the wealthy only have one agenda, to protect their own asses and screw everyone else. They want to kill off the Middle-Class Americans and rule the world.

"A recent study found that African-Americans are still routinely excluded from southern juries, thus denying black defendants a jury of their peers."

The only way this is helpful is to compare the rate at which blacks, whites and other hispanics are excluded from juries. The law allows for exclusion. Is it being applied disproportionately to minorities? I don't doubt it is, but the statistical proof would be in a comparison, not in the statement above.

Thanks for tackling the issues.

There are few people who tackle so many topics of concern in this white washed era of "Right" driven media.

When it comes to Arizona styled Immigration ideology... I think there is a larger issue at stake. The Right loves to create an - us verses them mentality. One that seems to always prove that America does no wrong.

There are many US wars going on today. I believe that the Immigration issue is the beginning of a US central and south American war. One that is started with the name of War on Drugs but will soon be turned into Anglos verses Latins.

I don't know how many people know, that the US is currently building as many as 7 military bases in Colombia. Why would a country build military bases if it weren't going to initial some kind of military action.

If Latinos are considered druggies and bad for the US - much like the muslims.. then it will be easy for Fox and Republican types to make the co-relation that we need to exterminate them before they do the US harm.

Very poor logic but it has worked for 911.
The US is still in Afganistan/Iraq even after it was proven that it was Saudi nationals that were implicated as part of the group that attacked the Trade Towers.

In this era of USA kill before you think - before you check your values - before you understand human rights, US people of conscience need to gather and correct the view of all nationalities. No nationality is better than another. We need to stop creating an us and them. We are on this world together. Don't drop legislative bombs nor real ones. Give and you will receive. The US needs to stop creating enemies.

There are no boogie men. (unless they are us)

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!
