2366 - Con. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez & Gerald Horne: Juneteenth & What's Up With The Progressive Caucus

Sam hosts NY-14 Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) to discuss her June 23rd primary and what to expect from the progressive caucus before the next round of Covid-19 relief. Historian Gerald Horne joins Sam to discuss the history of Juneteenth in the age of Trump. On today's show: AOC's closing campaign ad pitch for reelection: "A better world is possible." NY-14 congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) joins Sam to discuss her June 23rd primary and what to expect from the progressive caucus before the next round of Covid-19 relief. Why the finance industry is donating to AOC's opponent, Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, the former CNBC anchor who lived in Trump tower before she carpet-bagged her way to Queens. The balance between local and national politics and the importance of mutual aid. The reasoning behind AOC's votes on the CARES and HEROES acts. Why the progressive caucus isn't always so progressive. Historian Gerald Horne joins Sam to discuss the history of Juneteenth in the age of Trump. The various steps that led to Texas finally abolishing slavery on June 19, 1865. The messy process of actually getting rid of unpaid labor. How revisionists have changed this history to fit a liberal narrative. How Juneteenth could be adopted as a national holiday and what it might look like. Check out Horne's newest book, "The Dawning of the Apocalypse: The Roots of Slavery, White Supremacy, Settler Colonialism, and Capitalism in the Long Sixteenth Century." On the fun half: Chuck Todd says GOP Senators are the people happiest about DACA ruling. Josh from Chicago plugs the DSA slate running in NYC; check out socialists.nyc to learn about the candidates. Trump scrolls through phone during small-business roundtable. Donald Trump Jr. tries to get father's approval in special Father's Day interview. Don Jr. begs for father's approval of his quarantine beard, Trump says he doesn't like it. Dinesh D'Souza says Antifa is the product of leftist academics, says the left hates Lincoln because he unmasked Democrats during Civil War era (taxes = slavery). Tucker says Democrats are using BLM protests to replace current system w/ new system that ends "equality" (suggesting that white people will be punished for being white). MAY 2020: Dave Rubin says leftist minds go into "protection mode" when their friends leave the left. Daily Wire hosts say it's time for Cold War round two, need to stop the growing leftist movement in USA. Raygun weighs in on the DACA ruling. Plus, your calls and IMs!
