  1. If the Democrat’s continue not joining the fight, then that encourages the other side to take the fight to you.

    • I agree. When you have routed your enemy, you do not let them regroup or they will counter attack. It’s a fundamental concept of warfare and the Republicans declared war on America long ago.

    • @Mainely Yes, if there are no consequences for the INSURRECTIONISTS the ransacking of the US Capitol was only practice!

    He does argue for something worth trying to accomplish

    • @TDBOMBA Typical diversion from a Putin sympathizer.
      Russia has over 4,300 nuclear warheads. China is nowhere near that number.
      Wake up!

    • @TDBOMBA Can you not make any comment without it being a LIE?
      Analysis of millions of social media posts shows that conservatives rule online!
      That is, Right-wing social media influencers, conservative media outlets and other GOP supporters dominate online discussions.
      WTF, you folks brag about Fox News being the most popular source for political information and then try to claim that the left wing are the biggest influencers.
      Not everyone is as stupid as the Trump DEPLORABLES!

    • @Borvo bro your lying because these news networks have been caught on multiple occasions lying why do think there approval rate is lower then 30% that’s means know body believes these ASSEWHOLES who sell out 😂😂 make sense when you talk to me and stay out your emotions or you will get grilled every time

    • @TDBOMBA WOW ! That was some neck snapping WHATABOUTISM!
      > One comment is that the left wing dominates the media
      the next comment that the left wing media’s
      > approval rate is lower then 30%
      Try holding off making anymore comments until after you have two brain cells to rub together.

    • @Borvo bro I’m sorry if you didn’t understand, there approval rate is below 30% but there influences dominates conservatives as they silence more way more conservatives then liberals or the”left” such as celebrity’s prompting them sports promoting there talking points and way more lets not get into the educational system because we know people got kicked out class and fired for supporting trump do you understand that I have some examples I can’t even play this childish stating the obvious game with u I can lead you to the water but I’m not gonna force you to drink it

  3. I’ve never actually heard of Anand and I’m not familiar with his work but that dude gets it. He’s 100% spot-on

    • Him and Robert Wright you need to look at both of their websites there on spot

    • Anand has been on it for a while.

    • He is great, really great.

    • Yeah, I love to hear him speak. I wish it was some way we could make the majority leader. He would be our pit bull for sure!

    • I believe Anand Giridharadas is correct. Thomas Jefferson said regarding free speech, “we are not afraid to follow truth wherever it may lead, nor to tolerate any error so long as reason is left free to combat it.” And we MUST combat the LIES that the Republicans and right wing propagandists spew forth day-in and day-out!

  4. The mind set of entitlement manifested by 45, who has no regards for the rule of law, leads to the ugly insurrection that we all witnessed.

    Americans: brag about trying to have a peaceful multicultural society
    Canadians: it’s not that hard. Just don’t elect @-holes.

    • Kaye Castleman | January 21, 2021 at 5:20 PM | Reply

      @Aaron Watch Canadian immigrants and people of colour tend to congregate in pockets. Montreal (my home town) was always divided into sections. We have our middle eastern quarter, East Indian quarter, etc. Blacks tend to integrate more. My high school was integrated, and the only issues that divided our community were French/English, which has been its own battle. It is true that the business capital of Canada, Toronto, was and continues to be overwhelmingly white, but that is changing as money arrives with wealthy immigrants and entrepreneurs from every racial group. The prairies have recently been settled by many refugees who arrive with nothing, and our west coast has an enormous Asian population, which has brought resentments from long-time Canadians who used to be able to afford to live there. I believe the major advantage Canada has over the US is that the melanin-rich populations of the world simply find Canada too cold to live here, and our vast area means people can find their own space to thrive in, without the neighbours feeling ‘threatened’. Of course, our track record with the native populations of Turtle Island has always been abysmal, and remains a disgrace to this day.

    • Also Canadaians “China’s bullying ussss o my gooodd”

    • @Vickie Shoemaker dominion got the win

    • No offence, but the state of California alone has more people than all of Canada.

    • Michael Provost | January 22, 2021 at 2:34 AM | Reply

      @Aaron Watch “Super white” anywhere you go in Montreal you will meet people from vastly different heritages

  6. Change is never easy for the un-enlightened.
    Just look at the maga cult who still fly the Confederate flag. 😂🤣

  7. wake up Democrats! You are fighting with muskets and the traitors are using automatic weapons (an anaology). this guy gets it, and these old democrats are living in the pre Trump era.

  8. I was 12 when JFK promised to take us into the future with a trip to the moon. Now 60 years later our trip into the futures involves cleaning up our planet and giving everyone a shot at prosperity. This will be far more difficult than a trip to the moon, but far more rewarding.

  9. I am ready to fight for Democracy, equal rights and justice for ALL.

    • DEMS can not get all mushy and soft. If we do the rats will continue and comeback worst. Unity is good, but don’t be stupid. DEMS. Trump is still planning against us.

    • @Remey Momma agreed

    • The greedy Republicans fight steal take Fox News host Judge Jeanine lobbied Trump during his last few hours in office to pardon her ex-husband. It worked.

  10. After 4 years of being in an abusive relationship, we are free at last to move toward hope. Welcome back, America. 💙❤️💙

    • @TDBOMBA Odd that the reasons for the cases being kicked out included a complete lack of evidence from Trump’s lawyers. Kicked out by judges some of whom were Republican appointees INCLUDING Trump’s choices.

      Oh and let’s not forget that toward the end of the entire farce legitimate law firms refused to handle any more cases because of the damage it was doing to their reputations. How bad must it be for a lawyer to refuse money?

      I’d pull the rest of your comments apart but you’re clearly losing the plot and just mashing the keyboard, can’t make head nor tail of half of what you’ve written.

      In short. Biden won, Trump lost. You can cry in the corner over there.

    • @Aaron Fahr yo why lie to me bro when watching left middle right point of views on top of watching ALL HEARINGS so now your spreading misinformation thinking it’s cool because Biden when he can censor anyone saying election fraud cut it out and watch ALL the hearing and PAY ATTENTION to all details e en the smallest ones the was an attack on America the constitutional republic & democracy as you people love to say 😂

    • @Aaron Fahr and even you can watch the Wisconsin hearing and they never called in any witnesses first hand people at the polling station you don’t have to keep up there narrative you didn’t make I just want you to think freely and PAY MORE ATTENTION

    • @Ph@tMantv Yes, we MUST hold the Trump supporters (including US Representatives and Senators) accountable. If there are no consequences to ransacking the US Capitol it was only practice!

    • William Appleby | January 21, 2021 at 5:55 PM | Reply

      I agree with you Eileen✌️❤️🇺🇲

  11. Canada has already shown the way to a working multicultural society.

  12. It takes no effort for dust to collect, it does take effort to clear it away.

  13. Richard Taylor | January 21, 2021 at 3:18 PM | Reply

    Indeed. It has been a revolt against the future.

  14. Richard Taylor | January 21, 2021 at 3:21 PM | Reply

    Not sure who this guest is, but its the second time this month I’ve seen him explaining things in the most concise and truthful way. Its profound

  15. If democracy was easy, everyone would do it. It is too bad the GOP took a turn that earned the party the new name of banana Republicans since they decided to try a coupe instead of accepting the democratic will of the people.

  16. This man needs to be in Congress. Can Biden appoint him to a position? He’s more qualified than Pete b.

    • incipidsigninsetup | January 21, 2021 at 4:34 PM | Reply

      Pete earned his spot. Yes he’s no wholly qualified and I honestly don’t like him much but him going onto Fox and speaking for Joe Biden and forcing raw bitter truth down the throats of the Fox hosts and their viewership was greatly needed. He’s a smart, gifted politician and his stalwart performance needs to be rewarded.

      That being if this guy wanted to run for office, I’d be all for it.

    • Pete B. not qualified? Did you just see who was in charge of our Mid-East policy? He’s not a denizen of any swamp, he’s smart, intelligent, brave, and honest. Give that man a chance before you judge him… please.

  17. It is necessary ‘to fight’ and in the way the great late John Lewis did and intended. This is “the good fight”!

  18. Jerry Shepherd | January 21, 2021 at 4:39 PM | Reply

    This all started with Newt Gingrich when he came out with his so called “Contract for America” and the underlying message he was giving was not to cooperate with the Democrats; no bipartisanship. The retrumpian party must, must change. The retrumpian party was calling for unity and overlooking accountability a week ago right after the insurrection and now the spokesman of hate are right back at it one day after the call for unity at the Inauguration.

  19. This is exactly right. Democrats need to grow a spine, especially when they’re ahead. Have a sense of fight for progress and truth, don’t keep compromising. Republicans won’t, so why do dems?

  20. Alaska Pirates | January 21, 2021 at 5:22 PM | Reply

    Yea, he poured water all over the fact that there are seditionists in congress.
