Show Description – MONDAY, DECEMBER 12th – On today’s program, Vince talks about love, the holidays, anti-Russian propaganda, Standing Rock, the unfortunate state of leftwing activism in the U.S., and why we should occasionally disconnect from social media and various other forms of manufactured digital realities.
Meditations and Molotovs “Live From Standing Rock” features Vincent’s reflections on his recent trip to the encampments and why he thinks the tribal leadership squandered a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
On today’s program, Vince speaks to one of the best organizers in Chicago, who also happens to be one of Vince’s best friends – Roberto Jesus, otherwise known as “Joliet Jake,” will be joining us for the hour. The conversation covers the anti-globalization movements of the 1990s, WTO protests, antiwar activism under Bush, Wisconsin, Occupy, Obama, and community organizing. This podcast is an excellent educational tool for organizing, especially for those who are just starting their political journey.
Today’s program will cover a broad range of issues: local organizing, NDPL, Trump’s appointments and why I think the vast majority of progressive political organizations and movements are not prepared – mentally, emotionally, physically, organizationally, politically – for Trump’s reign as Il Duce.
On today’s program, Vince interviews his friend, activist and writer, Ramon Mejia (the baddest hombre this side of the Mississippi).
On today’s program, Vince reflects on 18 months of electoral madness and what people should expect over the next four to eight years under a potential Clinton Presidency.
On today’s program, Vince interviews author and activist, Dr. Dahlia Wasfi.
Hillary Clinton will be the next President of the U.S. and Donald Trump will be in the media even more than he is today (recent reports have him starting his own cable channel – we’ll see). His supporters, emboldened but disorganized, will remain.
But where does that leave the rest of us? What should we expect from a Clinton presidency? And how will activists, particularly the millions who were mobilized for Sanders, respond?
