6/19 Casual Friday: Cliff Schecter & Andy Kindler

June 19, 2015

Cliff Schecter explains the overwhelming evidence that gun control works. Racism and the creation of the conservative movement. From the Civil War to the modern NRA and how the Right uses racism to advance its cause. Why the Republicans won’t call the Charelston terrorist attacks racist. Jeb Bush’s insane comments on the attack. Lindsey Graham claims on The View that the killings could have been motivated by a desire to kill Christians. Chris Hayes asks Mark Sanford why the Confederate Flag is still flying in South Carolina and how racism infests all of Republican politics.

Andy Kindler explains why his Website never changes. What to make of Marc Maron landing Barack Obama on WTF. Comparing Dennis Miller impressions. How delusional Jerry Seinfeld is. Who decides what is and isn’t funny. Political Correctness is not killing careers and Donald Trump’s deranged anti Mexican racism.

On The Fun Half: Sam talks about his eleven year anniversary. What having the Confederate Flag flying in South Carolina means. Also your calls and IMs.
