Episode #42: Why Aren’t Americans Going Back to Work?

Download this episode

For this episode, Jacob and Eric discuss the latest surprising example of Cancel Culture actually working for the Right: The National School Boards Association (NSBA) apologizing over its letter to the Biden Administration demanding that anti-Critical Race Theory parents be labeled as “domestic terrorists.” Eric analyzes a Newsweek op-ed which speculates that the GOP could seize the opportunity to become the party of American workers by supporting ongoing strikes, walkouts, and other protests by working-class Americans against vaccine mandates by their employers, like the Southwest Airlines fiasco. Jacob reacts to Merrick Garland’s congressional testimony, during which he claimed to be completely ignorant of the two cases of rape in Loudoun County schools, perpetrated by the same “transgender” student. For the main topic, they address the true cause of the ongoing labor shortage across America, and the subsequent supply chain issues: Mass immigration forcing Americans out of work due to the influx of low-skilled labor.
