SORT BY Relevancy
As the world evolves and more efforts are made to understand and embrace different cultures, religions, and lifestyles, is society resorting to political correctness which sets it on a path to social Marxism as some have claimed?
When is it acceptable to hold individuals and corporations (and its executives) accountable for their prejudicial beliefs or the organisations they support?
Can we go too far in pursuit of a story, justice, or what we perceive as righteous and open-minded behaviour?
Is there a point when the offended becomes the offender, or is all fair in the pursuit of a tolerant society?
Join us in what is certain to be a spirited discussion about tolerance, acceptance, and striking a balance between this and the right to believe and live as we choose.
As very dangerous people take advantage of political correctness, our country seems to be falling for it more now than ever. Being offended seems to win the day and the enemy knows that. Are you guilty?
Changing minds every day of the week!

All This in 30 Minutes!!
Where does all this stuff that you’ve heard about this morning – the victim feminism, the gay rights movement, the invented statistics, the rewritten history, the lies, the demands, all the rest of it – where does it come from? For the first time in our history, Americans have to be fearful of what they say, of what they write, and of what they think. They have to be afraid of using the wrong word, a word denounced as offensive or insensitive, or racist, sexist, or homophobic.
We have seen other countries, particularly in this century, where this has been the case. And we have always regarded them with a mixture of pity, and to be truthful, some amusement, because it has struck us as so strange that people would allow a situation to develop where they would be afraid of what words they used. But we now have this situation in this country. We have it primarily on college campuses, but it is spreading throughout the whole society. Were does it come from? What is it?
What is political correctness and how has it been affecting society?
We discuss Colin Flaherty's book - White Girl Bleed a Lot - as well as Taleeb Starkes' book. Plus, we'll talk about what at least one black progressive revolutionary thinks of Starkes and Flaherty.
Join Fred DeRuvo in this new series that will be highlighting the reality of the dangers of political correctness throughout America and the world.
Future shows will be 30 minutes in length. Stay tuned to this page for more information and check out our blog at:
What does it mean when religious people describe atheists as angry or militant? Why do non-believers often describe the religious as stupid, ignorant and batsh*t crazy? Do we have to respect others' beliefs? What is the difference, if any, between respecting the person and respecting their beliefs?

Join us as we talk about the growing climate of political correctness in this country. First up, the complex & hidden story behind the Washington Redskins trademark decision. Given the team's owner's appeals, should this decision stand? Does this open the floodgates for other teams to be judged?
Next, we'll be talking about the controversy behind LA Clippers basketball team owner, Donald Sterling's racist recording and the consequences; is everything we say, no matter to whom, open to public scrutiny? Should Sterling have been forced to sell the Clippers?
Lastly, "22 Jump Street" & "The Wolf of Wall Street" actor, Jonah Hill was recently caught using homophobic slurs towards a member of the paparazzi, was his public apology enough? Do we excuse certain behavior and language because its still socially acceptable?

Some eerie developments are taking place, but they're hard to see if you continue to wear politically correct blinders. What often passes for normalcy today would have been labeled totalitarian just few years ago. We'll share some examples.
Meanwhile, there's something missing in one high profile candidate's ads in her bid to be elected U.S. Senator in Georgia. Hint: It starts with a "D."
Also of note: Tensions between Europe and Russian continue to escalate. Moves by the west allegedly intended to keep Putin in check may actually encourge him to expand his ambitions. We'll explain on Friday's show.
Well, here I am back from my self imposed brief hiatus. I'll talk about that and then with this being a show in which there was very little time to research or do show prep, I'll just have commentary on a few stories of the day. There are a number of people in other countries who claim to be the "reincarnation" of Jesus Christ, and yes they have some followers or believers. Joel Osteen is in the news again for the wrong reasons, and I'll talk about that. There's a government report that reveals that use, Obamacare does fund abortions that I will talk about. And I hope to discuss a couple of stories involving Christianity or religion and schools. A lot of stories all over the country with prayer in school still being a hot topic. But it's great to be back and hopefully starting next week, back on schedule as well. 4:30 Eastern time, archived afterward.
