With the Republican National Convention in full swing, this episode of Talking Left featured four great guests to help us sort through the lies and propaganda.
First, we heard from Wyoming's democratic candidate for Congress, Chris Henrichsen, about his thoughts on the R.N.C. and the lack of Democratic Party support for grass-roots campaigns throughout the country. Please visit Chris's ActBlue page, donate if you can, and share it with all your friends and family.
Next, Nancy L. Cohen, author of Delirium: The Politics of Sex in America, about the on-going war on women by the Republican Party and the fact that they have endorsed that attack in the recently announced Republican Party Platform.
After that, we got a live update from the R.N.C. from Tina Dupuy, the editor-in-chief of The Contributor. She reported that the over-all mood at the convention was far from exciting and that her multi-curltural team had experienced an extreme amount of racism since getting there.
Last, but far from least, we spoke with Ray Mederios, of USA Progressive. Ray is definitely Talking Left's favorite economic expert and he helped us break apart the Republican theory of tax-cutting their way into job creation.
As always, thanks for listening!
