North Polarizing

The President of the United States tweets The Conservatarians’ Photoshop, finally ensconcing this fine podcast in the National Archives. And why do Democrats call the late David Koch “polarizing” — was it his support for same-sex marriage, criminal justice reform, or legalized weed?

The intro/outro song and Jon’s song of the week is “Change With the Sun” by Soviet Soviet. Stephen’s song of the week is “Stained Glass Slipper” by WHY? To listen to all the music featured on The Conservatarians, subscribe to our Spotify playlist!

    45 minutes and 59 seconds! That rounds up to an hour, or even 90 minutes!

    If @exjon, of all people, in the formerly deep red state of Arizona, can have a woke daughter, then Public Education has indeed doomed our polity beyond all reclamation.

    Jon’s spoken in the past about his daughter and her friends “making fun” of the SJW pieties they are force-fed at school, but I knew then (as I know now) that those kids aren’t genuinely suspicious of those pieties. They have bought into them — hook, line and sinker.

    And how could they not? They have been steeped in them — marinating in them — from the age of 4 onward. And what they are taught in school is only reinforced by the TV they watch, the movies they see, the news they receive, etc. It’s literally all around them. It’s like asking a kid who hears nothing but Japanese all his life to grow up speaking French. It’s just not gonna happen.

    Even if they don’t believe them, they’ll act like they do, in order to fit in and be accepted.

    Why wouldn’t they believe them, though? These kids have no frame of reference. Please see my foreign language analogy up above ^.

    You have to understand that “woke” ideas are literally all these kids are exposed to from kindergarten on.

    I was really referring just to Jon’s kids. Even if they really see the BS, they’ll act like they don’t, so as not to be ostracized.
