Obama And The Race Card

If former President Barack Obama had not consistently played the race card, George Floyd might still be alive. Imagine how many lives might have been saved if he told his followers to comply with the police, rather than turning an ordinary interaction into something deadly.

In this episode, Larry Elder discusses the consequences of playing the race card and urges the former president to share the truth about the so-called systemic racism in America’s law enforcement.

Truth About Asian Hate Crimes

A white man kills eight people in a mass shooting in Atlanta, six of whom were Asian and two were white, but the Biden Administration and the media labeled it a hate crime against Asian Americans. Days later, another mass shooting happened in Boulder, Colo., where a Syrian immigrant killed 10 people, and the media was silent.

They’re also quiet about the dirty little secret in the rise of hate crimes against Asian Americans. What they don’t tell you is that blacks commit a disproportionate number of hate crimes against Asians, about 28 percent. Tune in as Elder exposes the truth behind the attacks and what communities of color really fear.

Trump Not Finished Yet

For those of you who believe President Trump is finished, think again. Four years is an eternity in politics. In this episode, Larry Elder looks back at other politicians the mainstream media and pundits claimed were done after a loss or two. The most celebrated was Richard Nixon, who lost his Presidential bid to John F. Kennedy in 1960, then was soundly defeated by Pat Brown for the governorship of California in 1962, before winning the White House in 1968.

So don’t assume Trump will disappear anytime soon. After all, it won’t be the first time his adversaries underestimated him.

Michelle Still Playing Race Card

Former First Lady Michelle Obama, arguably one of the most admired women on the planet, has returned to her Old Faithful–the race card. It’s a likely fixture for the First Lady and her husband, President Barack Obama, through the years, despite their fairytale lives.

Both oppose school choice, but attended schools outside the neighborhoods they grew up in. And both their daughters attended private schools. The Obamas went on to attend elite schools of higher learning, Michelle to Princeton and Harvard Law School, and President Obama to Occidental College in LA, and onto the Ivy League’s Columbia and Harvard Law School. They later landed cushy jobs at at Sidley Austin LLP, a prestigious law firm in Chicago, served the country in the White House for eight years and, most recently, purchased a $12.7 million dollar house in Martha’s Vineyard, within walking distance to the ocean.

Yet to this day, Michelle is still stoking fears about climate change eroding the coast, the dangers of school choice and racial inequality. Similar paths on the Left has steered 95 percent of the African American vote to the Democrat Party in recent elections. But that may be short-lived, says political commentator and talk show host Larry Elder. The Black community is waking up to the disoriented rhetoric and empty promises of the party. Here’s more with Elder, presented by Epoch Times.

The Anti-Racist Racists

Are  protests pushing Americans to want to do something about racial injustice? That might be a good thing and can start with policies to make society fairer, such as ending the drug war, limiting police unions and cutting big government programs that encourage dependency.

But no, that doesn’t sit well with activists. Radical groups, such as Black Lives Matter, are making things worse, advancing their obsession with race, pushing Marxism and criticizing the nuclear family. Radio show host Larry Elder says blacks would benefit if more of them grew up in nuclear families. “The number one problem facing the black community is absence of fathers and Black Lives Matter actually is encouraging that.” He emphasized that today, blacks can do three simple things to succeed: “Finish high school, don’ have a kid until you get married and get a job. Do those three things and you will not be poor.”

Elder joins political commentator John Stossel and Kmele Foster of Freethink to break down the divisive rhetoric of the ever-changing radical left.

Debunking Black Myths

In his new movie Uncle Tom, radio talk-show host Larry Elder dissects many of the problems plaguing Black America today and debunks some of the greatest myths about the black community. Appearing on The Blaze with host Andrew Wilkow, Elder says blacks, especially conservative blacks, have been heavily targeted by the vitriol of the Democrat Party and mainstream media. But Elder, espousing the values handed down to him and his siblings by his parents, steadfastly maintains that hard work and faith are the keys to a stable life. “Nobody is denying that racism exists, nobody is denying that it always will exist,” he says. “But for the most part, right now in 2020, if you work hard, invest in yourself, don’t have a kid outside of wedlock, you will not be poor.” Here’s more with Wilkow and Elder.

The Ferguson Lie

One of the most significant events of this century happened on Aug. 9, 2014, on the outskirts of St. Louis, in a town called Ferguson, Mo. The event is so imbedded in our psyche that if you just mention Ferguson, everyone knows what you’re talking about–alleged police brutality and racial injustice. Problem is, people think they know what happened in Ferguson, but many are mistaken. During that fateful evening, a young black man, Michael Brown, was shot and killed by a police officer, which fueled nights of riots and gave fuel to a new social movement–Black Lives Matter. Syndicated radio-show host Larry Elder breaks down the details of that night in Ferguson and its historical significance in this episode of PragerU.

The Time I Got My Facts Wrong

Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Andrew Klavan (Author and Podcast Host at Daily Wire) about the fifth chapter of “Don’t Burn This Book”, entitled ‘Check Your Facts Not Your Privilege’. Special guest host Andrew Klavan talks to Dave about the time that Larry Elder destroyed Dave Rubin’s arguments with facts. Dave and Andrew discuss how important it is to know your facts before you form an opinion on an issue. They also discuss how learning the facts associated with a topic can get you to change your position. As Ben Shapiro says “facts don’t care about your feelings.”

Chicago’s Not-So-Magnifcent 7

Everyone’s heard of the Magnificent Seven, the classic 1960 Western that dazzled moviegoers. Then there’s Chicago’s “Not-So-Magnificent Seven,” whom have created a political firestorm in the Windy City with a lasting, negative effect on America still evident to this day. The original classic starred luminaries, such as Steve McQueen, Yul Brynner and James Coburn. Chicago’s Seven features a cast liars, terrorists and racists: President Barack Obama, former Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers and four supposed “holy men”–Rev. Louis Farrakan, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Father Michael Pfleger and Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Despite wielding massive political power, they failed  miserably. Chicago remains the murder capital of the country, with no sign of letting up anytime soon. In this episode of Epoch Times, host Larry Elder takes a closer look at the Chicago Seven and reveals why they are so infamous.

Biden’s Consistency Problem

With the spotlight on Sleepy Joe Biden’s attention-deficit problems and a barrage of faux pas over the past few months, Larry Elder found it apropo to look at the Democrat Party’s presumptive nominee’s struggle with consistency. Elder specifically details Biden’s messaging on two important issues: Saddam Hussein’s alleged WMD (weapons of mass destruction) program and the character of the individual who tragically caused the death of Biden’s wife and daughter in a car accident in 1972. What Elder finds is some major gaps in consistency.
