2361 - Twilight of the Cop Consensus & Voter Suppression in GA w/ Benjamin Dixon & David Roth

Sam hosts Benjamin Dixon (@BenjaminPDixon) of The Benjamin Dixon Show and David Roth (@david_j_roth) of the New Republic to discuss this week's top stories and the continued protests against police brutality. On today's show: Harris Faulker asks Trump why he referenced "looting and shooting" from 1968, brings up its racist origins. Benjamin Dixon (@BenjaminPDixon) of The Benjamin Dixon Show joins Sam to discuss the week's top stories. Voter suppression in GA as dry run for the general election. The escalation of police violence against protesters and Democratic mayors' complicity. What we have gained from this wave of uprisings. The need to get Pelosi & co out of power and bring in a new generation of leaders. The symbolism of the Tulsa massacre. Arizona top public health official says "can't stop, won't stop" (the spread of Covid, living). David Roth (@david_j_roth) of the New Republic joins Sam to discuss his recent article, "Twilight of the Cop Consensus." How calls to defund or even abolish the police went from a longtime activist demand to a widespread, common sense idea. The advances made in the recent wave of protests. The ideas carried forward from Occupy. How a looming wave of evictions could re-start the struggle. On the fun half: Cop apologizes to his colleagues for taking a knee with protesters. General Milley apologizes for his part in Trump bible photo op. Trump rally RSVP has registrants sign Covid waiver. Fox & Friends wonder if Trump understands the significance of Juneteenth. ‘Cowards’: Congressman (and former Black Panther) Bobby Rush slams Chicago police caught lounging in his office amid looting. Ainsley says the Juneteenth rally in Tulsa is "a great opportunity" to help race relations. Trump says the cops are "dominating the streets with compassion." Tom Cotton warns of the slippery slope of renaming bases, Washington monument will be renamed "obelisk of wokeness." Matt Walsh says systemic racism isn't real, look at Ilhan Omar, AOC, and Obama.
