P.J. O’Rourke: ‘Something bad is afoot in society’
From Stansberry Investor Hour:
In a week where Alex Jones of Infowars gets banished from Facebook and YouTube, while a strongman survives an assassination attempt under suspiciously lucky circumstances, nationally syndicated radio host and former CIA officer Buck Sexton has plenty to unpack for listeners.
Joining him is American Consequences editor and best-selling author P.J. O’Rourke. Together they make sense of the latest shot in the PC wars, from the debate over male cheerleaders to the T-shirt that got banned at Washington’s “Newseum.”
Later they’re joined by Andy Ferguson, national correspondent of the Weekly Standard and author of books such as Fool’s Names, Fool’s Faces. Andy gets right to the politician of “Oops!” fame who’s now heading the Department he vowed to eliminate, probably as a sly, sick joke on President Trump’s part.
After you hear the inside story of how Governor Rick Perry – once the Republican Party’s great white hope in 2012 – became seduced by the very office he promised to destroy, you’ll have new insight into how bureaucracies take root.
