5/17 Buffalo: Brought To You By Top Republican Conservative Purveyors of Replacement Theory

May 17, 2022

Sam and Emma break down the biggest headlines of the day, and debrief the Big Lie-ve Show in Boston last Sunday! And in the evening, the MR Crew will be breaking down the incoming primary news out of Pennsylvania, Kentucky, and more! They quickly run through Finland’s announcement of joining NATO, Sweden’s request to do the same, and how Putin’s actions are driving even more of his neighbors to the coalition. They also discuss Mariupol’s surrender, Biden’s deployment of troops to Somalia, and the how US’ horrendous infrastructure has produced a baby formula shortage. After running through the news, Emma and Sam dive right into the horrors of this weekend’s white supremacist mass shootings, looking to the great replacement theorists that drove the ideology of this 18-year-old terrorist in Buffalo, and the devastated reaction from the Black community that was targeted. Of course, this leads them to Tucker Carlson as they parse through his arguments that the TRUE racial animosity comes from discussing racial terror, not from the racial terror itself, why any racial politics is racist, and explores his supposed utopia of a colorblind meritocracy, all while he yells and screams about POC replacing “legacy Americans” (note, not the indigenous ones). Continuing with a discussion on these theorists, Emma and Sam look at Elise Stefanik’s Twitter rant on the inaction of the “pedo grifters” around the baby formula shortage, and her double back to claim she meant people grifting FOR babies, but not in the way where they get them baby formula (which obviously she has a plan for… centered on calling Democrats pedos). They wrap up the first half by expanding on the baby formula crisis and running through some of tonight’s primaries.

And in the Fun Half: Emma and Sam are joined by Nomiki Konst as they cover Melania Trump’s NFTs for kids (talk about pedo grifting!), and dive deep into the baby formula crisis, from the Abbott monopoly that broke the system, to the lack of oversight for companies already in the industry, despite the incredible standards for coming in, and the role that Abbott’s WIC monopoly plays in ensuring, like more US infrastructure failures, social welfare recipients are hit the hardest. Nomiki, Emma, and Sam then look to NYS’ redistricting, the weird competition it sets up between ranking Democratic members, and what the changes to the map look like. They also touch on Tim Pool’s continued absurdity, calling out Sam’s perspicacity in his debate with Matt Binder, despite Tim’s own unwillingness to confront Sam’s perspectives, and wrap up the show with a talk on Joe Rogan and algorithmic love for obvious misinformation, plus, your IMs!
