2553 - Georgia Suppresses Votes Again & Is Sam a Socialist? w/ Alex Pareene & Carl Beijer

Sam and Emma host Alex Pareene, staff writer at The New Republic and co-host of “The Politics of Everything” podcast, to discuss the passage of voter suppression legislation in Georgia, Joe Manchin’s role in the filibuster negotiations, and Kyrsten Sinema’s political strategy in Arizona. Alex assesses the Biden presidency thus far and critiques Biden’s failure to play a leading role in spreading vaccines to the Global South and requiring vaccine companies to share their patents. Then, through the lens of Biden’s first press briefing, Alex discusses the issues with journalism and mainstream media.   Afterwards, Carl Beijer tunes in to go through a series of questions about socialism ideology and in practice. Sam challenges Carl’s ideas on private property vs personal property, government management of the economy, exploitation of labor, manifesting the will of the people in a consolidated government, and more.   And in the Fun Half: Jimmy Dole says “journalist” Dave Rubin should be allowed enable as many white supremacists on his show as he wants, Dan Crenshaw is impressed with Biden’s vaccine roll-out, Congressional candidate Dan ‘Big Dan’ Rodimer needs a better director for his campaign ads, Tucker Carlson says liberals are forcing Republicans to vote for fascists, plus your calls and IMs!
