PARTIAL TRANSCRIPT

(Autogenerated, may contain transcription errors. Timestamps approximate.)

Tony Katz (1:28) …. And right now, William Jacobson joins us from legal insurrection.com Cornell law professor. And he is one of these people. Christopher Rufo pointing out that there’s a group, a critical race theory activist organization, which has created a strategic plan to mobilize teachers and left-wing media. And they’ve got a list of frontline people who they want to go after. And one of them, Sir, is you, you’re a frontline spokesperson for discussing against critical race theory. Congratulations. I don’t know if I’ve got an award for you, but what does it feel like to know that you’re pictured prominently as somebody who is the problem?

William Jacobson (02:08):

Well, I’m the solution. I’m not the problem. They are the problem. Meaning it’s really surprising. I guess it’s not surprising that the people who control academia, who control the media, who control now corporations. still feel the need to try to single out and isolate and attack individuals like myself and several others. Many of whom on their literature are non-white. In fact, most of them on the page you’re talking about are nonwhite people, professors, authors, activists who are against the racialization of education. And so I I’m honored to be on that list, but it also just shows how pathetic these people are that despite all the money they have, all the power they’ve accumulated, their message still isn’t resonating

Katz (03:00):

As Christopher Rufo goes through this, the language withintheir handouts discusses, disinformation, McCarthyism, January 6th, big lie, alt right, Steve Bannon and the Koch brothers make the list. Fringe element, extremist voter suppression, and right-wing attacks. Christopher Rufo’s point, Christopher Rufo from City Journal, that this isn’t a sign of confidence. As you see the pushback against parents speaking out against what they’re seeing in the schools, which is not about being opposed to discussions of race, but rather indoctrination of students and teaching them that they’re guilty based on the color of their skin or they’re oppressed based on the color of their skin. What do you get when you see a guide filled with this kind of language?

Jacobson (03:48):

Well, it’s not the first time that I’ve seen it. The people pushing the CRT are highly organized, highly well-funded, and I’ve seen other messaging guides. They like to produce guides and talking points for their supporters and their activists as if they are incapable of coming up with it on their own. So I’ve seen these sort of guides. There’s a group called Future of Learning. That’s a coalition of over 300 pro CRT educational groups funded by major foundations, and also seems to be under the thumb of the National Education Association, which is one of its funders. They have a messaging guide, they have talking points. They have things that are literally called talking points and they hire strategic consultants.

And they create these red herrings, these false arguments that, oh, you know, people opposed to the racialization of education, they just don’t want us to talk about history. But I don’t know anybody who says you shouldn’t teach history. But why don’t we teach history in history class? Why do we have to inject this racial element into math class and into physics class? And why must every single aspect of a child’s life and education now be forced to revolve around the color of skin? That’s what people are objecting to. Nobody serious is objecting to teaching about slavery or teaching about Jim Crow. Those things are already taught in school. It’s really the fact that they make skin color the singular focus of a child’s life,

Katz (05:20):

… Now people have yelled. People have gotten angry…. And the next thing you know, no other parents are allowed to speak as if somehow that was the only reason they would have prevented parents from speaking out. You see parents pushing back all day, they’re reaching out to you, they’re talking to you. How do you suggest they go about engaging these conversations? Or is it just full on keep the pressure on until they learn that the parents are in charge?

Jacobson (06:44):

I think you have to keep the pressure on. The people running the school boards, not every school board, but certain school boards, are activists. They view their role to be activists. They want to indoctrinate your children in an ideology that most Americans of all colors and all ethnicities do not agree with. And I think the pressure needs to be kept on, but people need to do it peacefully. They need to do it lawfully and they need to be extremely careful because there is a lot of money and a lot of power behind these groups. And it just takes one person to create a news distraction.

Tony, you probably remember the Tea Party movement. We followed it very carefully. You could have 4,000 people at a rally with 1500 signs and they would find the one person in the crowd with the sign that was offensive. And that would now become the entire media focus. And there were documented instances where they actually planted people in crowds to say nasty things and to carry rude signs so that they could publicize it. So you need to keep the pressure on, but it needs to be done lawfully.

You have a constitutional right to express your opinions to public officials and you have the constitutional right to do it in a tone of voice that is above a hush. Okay? You don’t need to speak in soft tones. The constitution doesn’t say free speech only for people who do not talk above a hush.

Katz (08:15):

But we hear that at school boards right here in central Indiana, where, uh, you, you, you’re not allowed to make a threatening tone or you’re not allowed to raise your voice. They’re putting limits that limits on speech. That’s not the way it’s supposed to work.

Jacobson (08:28):

When have you ever heard that limit placed on left-wing protesters? When did you ever hear a public officials say, oh, well, the Black Lives Matter protest can’t happen in our city because you know what, they’re shouting. No, that doesn’t happen. That only happens to parents who were objecting to the indoctrination of their children, to parents who are asserting their parental rights.

So don’t go for this, keep the pressure on, but again, do it lawfully and do it in a very smart way because there are, the media is not your friend. The mainstream media is not your friend. Any slip up. Any single incident will be portrayed as indicative of the entire movement. And we know that it’s not

Katz (09:09):

Before I let you go, sir, is the Department of Justice from the school boards association request, basically labeling parents as domestic terrorists…. Are you hearing anything about the DOJ making moves to make it harder for parents to be able to speak out about their child’s education and advocate for their kids?

Jacobson (09:37):

DOJ already made its move. That memo was intended to intimidate people. That memo was intended to give school boards and left-wing activists the ability to accuse people who are not violent of being potentially violent or being potential domestic terrorists. So the DOJ already made its move. And I think it’s going to backfire. From what I’m seeing, there is enormous energy in reaction to that and enormous defiance.

The fact that they had to go to DOJ, and this is all appearing to be a setup that this is, they needed an excuse for the DOJ to go after people or to at least demonize them. And that school board letter was phony as anything, that was a set up.

And I’m hearing from people that they are energized like never before. And the fact that they have to go to DOJ and they have to try to criminalize political disagreement, shows you they don’t have confidence in their argument.

It is going from a simmer to a boil…

The incidents and cover ups in Virginia are clearly fueling a reaction by patriotic Americans who view America as being a great country that has made enormous strides politically and view the federal government as imposing radically v based dictates of all kinds on their lives without their consent

Good interview in which you really lay bare the machinations of this despicable group of people, Bill.

Merrick Garland is fast earning a name for himself as the 21st century’s Major John Andre.

    Subotai Bahadur in reply to henrybowman. | October 14, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    Major Andre was actually better and more honorable than Garland. He was an open enemy, an officer of the enemy’s army fighting for his sovereign who he had sworn allegiance to. Garland swore, probably on a number of occasions, an oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United State. Granting that the Nomenklatura violates that Oath as a matter of course several times before breakfast, but that difference needs to be remembered.

    He was actually captured in my hometown of Tarrytown, NY. The very first military decoration of the US Army, the Fidelity Medallion, was awarded to the three men (and only them) who captured Andre. Those men were the rock stars of the Revolutionary period.

    Andre’s captors were just as upset as the British when he was hanged in Tappan, NY. He was an honorable man, unlike Garland who is a weasel.

It would seem that the Democrat/Progressives are preparing for civil war.

As a friend said, “I’m living in what I imagined Soviet Russia was like.”

Merrick Beria.

They are exposing themselves for who they really are. It’s out in the open. It’s about time.

2smartforlibs | October 15, 2021 at 6:58 am

We have a government limiting Constitution for a reason.

    daniel_ream in reply to 2smartforlibs. | October 15, 2021 at 11:10 am

    Yes, because the people have failed to hold their government to their oaths, with armed force if necessary.

    Oh, wait. You mean a government-limiting Constitution, not a government limiting Constitution.

    henrybowman in reply to 2smartforlibs. | October 15, 2021 at 3:30 pm

    We have a government-limiting constitution, daily interpreted away into irrelevance by the very government it was meant to limit. Even I can see that was a stupid design indeed.

Another sign that we are winning and will win if we don’t back off. They are flailing in desperation and have resorted to the usual Marxist tactics. They haven’t been open to debate from square one so they are not about to start now. They are now gaslighting the country to be prepared for state-sponsored violence. This is probably when the thin blue line draws the line to protect citizens instead of the Marxist machine. The red pilling is accelerating and we need to roll with it..

They are running out of time so they are very likely to do stupid things out of their desperation. We have to be ready for our own Tiananmen Square event. We can’t lose for not being willing to stand our ground together when the opportunities present themselves.

    they are doing that w/o resistance other than some mean yelling, and you feel that is a deterence?

    daniel_ream in reply to Pasadena Phil. | October 15, 2021 at 11:12 am

    This is probably when the thin blue line draws the line to protect citizens instead of the Marxist machine

    If you think that’s going to happen you haven’t been paying attention. The police are part of the Marxist machine.

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to Pasadena Phil. | October 15, 2021 at 12:02 pm

    The police are like dogs: they obey whoever puts food in their bowl. The local government does the feeding.

      The cops reflect the communities they emerge from. Here in LA, they are resisting openly. LA County Sheriff Villanueva was the first to flat out tell Garland that he will not enforce nor cooperate. He has been consistent with his resistance to these people.

      Also, police all over the country are resisting the jab to the point of defying their unions and daring the authorities to fire them.

      Maybe the Texas police are different.

        henrybowman in reply to Pasadena Phil. | October 15, 2021 at 3:42 pm

        “Police all over the country are resisting the jab.” That’s not “protecting citizens,” that’s protecting themselves. Yeah, cops are great at doing that. But that means nothing to me.

        If you tried to enter a “no unvaxed allowed” zone, do you think they’d arrest you? You can bet your ass they will, in a moment.

          Police are NOT enforcing the unvaxxed and mask mandates here in LA. And I’ll bet it’s true where you are. If you really believe that “the police” is this homogeneous single-minded national organization staffed by zombies, I feel sorry for you. You need to meet these people and learn for yourself what is really going on.

          And citing a few examples most of which are irrelevant to what is happening today doesn’t make a very convincing point. You are choosing to be blind to major announcements by various police organizations that prove you are wrong. I know from personal experience that you are wrong. Maybe not where you live.

          You are making a big mistake if you refuse to support your local police when they are on your side. They live there too, send their kids to the same schools and attend the same churches. If needed, many or most of them will retire early or quit and then they will be just like you concerned about the same things.

          henrybowman in reply to henrybowman. | October 16, 2021 at 8:46 am

          No, I don’t believe that police are a “homogeneous single-minded national organization staffed by zombies.” I believe they are “local organizations staffed by paid thugs following the orders of whatever warlord rules the territory.” I don’t have a problem with mine, because my territory isn’t run by Blue Meanies. What I hear, not only from evidence in the MSM, but from friends and family spread out across the country, is that in any territory run by Blue Meanies, the police act as their enforcement arm, and not to “protect the citizens.”

          Grizz said it best above: “The police are like dogs: they obey whoever puts food in their bowl. The local government does the feeding.” That’s precisely right. If I knew his real name, I’d give him an entry in my file of freedom quotes.

E Howard Hunt | October 15, 2021 at 7:57 am

Garland looks like an enervated, malevolent, elfin puppet.

The increasing resistance of parents to neo-Nazi CRT beings to mind this quote from Winston Churchill:

If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.

There won’t be any easy victory in this war, since the generals we sided with (the GOP) has mostly been fighting for the other side. So are we in a fight with little chance of survival, or is there no hope of victory?

IMO, this was a foolish attempt at a ‘brush back pitch’ intended solely to intimidate by affixing a label. The problem is these labels have lost all meaning and impact. Those of us on the more populist side of r politics/thought have become immune to this process. These false charges that we are ‘racist, ableist, nationalist and after Jan 6, are terrorists in thoughts’ have long ago lost their sting.

“That memo was intended to give school boards and left-wing activists the ability to accuse people who are not violent of being potentially violent or being potential domestic terrorists.”

Now everyone knows what it was like being in the Tea Party movement. Terrorists disguised as mother pushing strollers, other terrorists in business suits eating lunch, terrorists picking up trash….

If the Democrats lose the statehouse in Virginia in 2 and 1/2 weeks, the winner should thank Merrick Garland for all his help.

People are waking up. Things are looking up. I’m still going to sleep with one eye open, but maybe someday I’ll know America has my back.
