Right-Wing Cancel-Culture Is Coming For PBS: Seseme Street

CPAC leader Matt Schlapp is doubling down on his position that PBS should stop receiving federal funding after the network announced that a new Asian-American muppet would be joining the cast of Sesame Street. Cenk Uygur, Jayar Jackson, and Jackson White discuss on The Young Turks. Watch LIVE weekdays 6-8 pm ET. http://youtube.com/theyoungturks/live Read more HERE: https://www.mediaite.com/tv/matt-schl… “Matt Schlapp doubled down Thursday on his call to defund PBS because Sesame Street introduced a new Asian-American character. Schlapp joined Fox News’ Todd Piro Thursday morning for a segment that suggested there is something controversial about the long-running children’s television series bringing the muppet Ji-Young into the cast. He reacted to the news earlier this week by tweeting, “What race is Ernie is Bert? You are insane PBS and we should stop funding you.”

We should be compiling links of sources claiming WSB is for silver Discussion

We’re not. Plain and simple. Anyone who frequents WSB knows this.

This means whatever media source is indicating this to be the case is a sellout and their credibility should be in serious question since they either

1) don’t do their due diligence, or

2) are okay with getting their strings pulled to be used as tools by the wealthy to manipulate masses.

If there was any doubt of these hedge fund’s influence and manipulate, this whole “WSB going silver” just put that conspiracy theory to rest and only does more to confirm that the game has always been rigged against the average person.

Edit: You know what would be AMAZING?? This was an idea already thrown out there, but if the mods could use twitter (and by pinning a statement on this subreddit) to invalidate the silver BS… That would be SUCH a great fucking move. Maybe a message like “There is no sentiment among WSB members to buy SLV stock and the little that exists is under scrutiny of WSB members”. That would just slam the door on any sources propagating that false information and call them out on their BS (because it’s just so obviously untrue). It would also make it clear for those checking the credibility of this fake news that the silver hype is a fabrication by variables outside of WSB and inform them of how convenient it is for hedge funds if people pulled from GME, and supported a stock they own massive shares of.

This goes without saying that I’m holding GME till the very end. Given how the media and some brokerages have gotten involved (and in a not so subtle way that benefits the hedge funds), it’s not even about the money anymore. And that’s coming from someone with student loans who stands to profit by exiting right now. Money comes and goes, but getting to witness firsthand just how rigged the system is and knowing who’s involved in keeping people in line is just something you can’t put a price tag on.

Krystal and Rachel: Nancy Pelosi’s Inequality Commission Is A Joke

00:00
[Music]
00:00
speaker pelosi with a big announcement
00:02
about her major commitment to fighting
00:04
inequality because that’s something she
00:05
definitely really really cares about
00:07
rachel
00:08
um here’s the announcement she’s
00:10
creating a committee
00:11
a select committee in fact on economic
00:14
inequality
00:15
you see there her official press release
00:17
on the website and this was actually
00:18
something that really jumped down as you
00:20
at you as like part of a normal
00:24
system that is employed here in
00:25
washington to make people
00:27
feel like things are happening and make
00:29
activists feel like they’re really
00:31
engaged in the process but really it’s a
00:33
way of sort of stiff-arming their
00:34
demands and concerns
00:36
yeah it’s all theater here in washington
00:38
but this one in particular is something
00:40
i call the hamster wheel
00:42
right it’s designed to put her most
00:44
activist members the members most likely
00:46
to cause her problems on this issue
00:49
she’s gonna put them on this commission
00:50
they are going to run on this hamster
00:52
wheel and feel like they’re doing
00:53
something really important
00:54
when in reality they’re just being kept
00:56
uh busy away from the house floor the
00:59
only place that actually matters for
01:01
actual change on anything
01:02
they’re gonna be running on the hamster
01:04
wheel of this commission which will
01:05
eventually put out a report that no one
01:07
will read and it will accomplish nothing
01:09
avoid these things like the plague if
01:11
you are someone who cares about change
01:12
and i say this to conservative activists
01:14
i say it out let me say here to
01:15
progressive activists
01:16
don’t do this yeah well i mean it
01:19
reminds me very much
01:20
of the biden sanders task forces
01:24
that you know was the only thing
01:27
that bernie managed to extract from joe
01:29
biden before exiting the race that you
01:31
knew from the jump like
01:33
it didn’t matter who you put on those
01:34
committees it didn’t matter how good the
01:36
recommendations were that were coming
01:38
out of them
01:38
like here we are days away from the
01:41
biden administration and i’m not hearing
01:43
anything about the recommendations that
01:45
came out of the task forces
01:47
whatsoever what pelosi says in this
01:49
press release she says we’re creating
01:51
the select committee
01:52
to be a resource to the congress to make
01:54
policy related
01:55
to economic fairness access to education
01:57
workforce development
01:59
working with the committees of
02:00
jurisdiction the select committee will
02:01
study and recommend
02:02
proposals to make our economy work for
02:04
everyone powering american economic
02:06
growth
02:07
while ensuring that no one is left out
02:09
or left behind in the 21st century
02:11
economy
02:11
all fancy way of saying like like you
02:14
said
02:15
they’re gonna study it they’re gonna put
02:17
on a report and that’ll be the end of
02:19
that so basically your point is here
02:21
when you see these committees purporting
02:23
to be about
02:25
fighting inequality or fighting into
02:27
whatever it is left or right
02:28
what they’re really doing is putting up
02:30
a roadblock putting up like
02:33
a sort of obstacle course to jump
02:35
through rather than actually taking
02:37
issue on that issue
02:39
this commission has two goals the first
02:41
is to make pelosi look like she’s doing
02:43
something and the second
02:44
is to distract you know the act the
02:46
members who actually want to do
02:47
something
02:48
from taking any meaningful action and
02:50
this goes back to something we talked
02:52
about earlier in the week which is
02:53
look the only thing that matters in the
02:55
house is action on the house floor
02:58
progressive activists can learn a lot
03:00
from the freedom caucus who presented
03:01
themselves as a political power block
03:04
by really only focusing on action on the
03:06
house floor they could deliver a block
03:08
of votes or they could withhold them
03:09
and that is where their power came from
03:11
was hanging together on these issues
03:13
they didn’t get distracted
03:14
by commissions they didn’t get
03:15
distracted by other promises because
03:17
this is just one
03:18
tool political leaderships have to
03:20
distract you know their problem members
03:23
my favorite one is the and we’ll vote on
03:25
that at some point or hey
03:26
this bureaucrat will call you or hey can
03:28
we just talk about it on the house floor
03:30
the only thing that matters at the end
03:32
of the day is voting
03:34
and the more you can pressure and push
03:36
action on that front
03:37
the more effective you’re going to be
03:39
because as we’ve learned from this whole
03:40
2000 check
03:41
2 000 check debacle the thing that they
03:45
hate most is going on the record for
03:46
anything because it’s a very
03:47
very powerful tool and can be used
03:49
against them or for them
03:51
uh in any number of ways and your point
03:53
is so well taken
03:54
that progressives really fall prey to
03:56
these types of tactics like they really
03:58
feel like when they get put on the task
04:00
force they
04:00
because there’s this like idealism there
04:02
of like they’re really listening to my
04:03
concerns and they really mean it and
04:05
these are my friends how many times we
04:06
hear bernie sanders they’re like joe my
04:08
friend joe biden you’re like
04:09
ugh um so it reminds me of
04:13
you know the forced to vote debate
04:15
that’s have it happening on the left
04:16
right now because on the one hand you
04:18
have a faction of people who are saying
04:19
we need a vote on this key issue that is
04:22
important to us that’s important to the
04:23
country in the middle of pandemic
04:25
medicare for all like let’s take a vote
04:27
and put everybody on their record
04:29
and what you’re hearing from at least
04:31
some in the progressive wing of the
04:32
party here in dc is like
04:35
let’s not do the voting that voting
04:37
doesn’t really matter that much any
04:38
we’re working behind the scenes to get
04:40
on key
04:40
leadership posts and committees etc etc
04:44
and all of that is ultimately just a way
04:47
to sort of
04:47
make them feel like they’re being heard
04:49
make them feel like they have some
04:51
sway and influence and power within the
04:53
system but ultimately to
04:55
crush them and keep them quiet and keep
04:57
them from causing trouble
04:59
everyone wants to feel like they’re a
05:00
cool kid right that’s how this town runs
05:03
and these positions you know these
05:05
acceptance on these commissions
05:07
everything always feels like oh i’m
05:08
getting invited to the table
05:10
you have to be comfortable not being
05:13
invited to the table because it’s the
05:14
only way you’re actually going to be
05:16
able to force
05:17
you know that kind of political action
05:18
on the floor which is the
05:20
again i’m going to be a broken record on
05:22
this but the only thing that matters at
05:23
the end of the day
05:24
is what you do on the floor it’s voting
05:26
so so true rachel
05:27
