Richard in Seattle turned out to be neither a big-thinker, nor, I suspect, a "liberal."
He only listened to the defense for the same reason he only watches Fox News it validates what he already believes. I like how he was trying to set up his liberal bonafides “I’m a thinking liberal on my way back to liberal Seattle”
When he said, " If you would just let me finish my thought..." You KNOW he's a fake Liberal. Conservatives are generally not used to being faced mid sentence. And bringing up Defunding the police? Please.
I knew this Richard clown was total BS when he said that he was trying this Stephen Crowder-like "convince me otherwise" nonsense.
All I can say Michelangelo is "Thank God he was not on that jury!" It would have only taken one person like him to cause a mistrial. I know that in our criminal justice system a person is considered innocent until proven guilty. I will admit that when the trial started I was already convinced that Chauvin was guilty (which is why I could have never been a juror on that case). After opening statements I told myself I would be open and listen to both sides, but felt that the Defense would have to work very hard to convince me beyond a reasonable doubt that Chauvin was not guilty. I followed the whole trial (unlike your caller) and in my opinion the prosecution shot down every argument the Defense put out there. No, George Floyd did not die from an overdose, heart attack or CO poisoning. No, he did not follow his training. An there is no way Chauvin was intimidated by the bystanders (which included teenage girls) especially with 3 other officers there. No, in the end I was not convinced and neither was the jury.
"I ain't got time for that!!" Was exactly the right thing to say. The nerve of people. The mediocrity staggers me. I wish you had said, "read a book, bitch." sorry but, sometimes I wish I was Ralph Kramden, and circle my fist in the air and say "To the MOOOOOON"
Buon Giorno Commendatore!
Of course, Richard from [See-addled] is just another “Tucker Sucker Cuckold” sycophant suffering from the usual overdose of “small FOX”....hmm? I wonder if there's a shot for that…..50 caliber maybe. /s?
It’s time we do something to hold the MSM responsible for all of this lying nonsense! The people have been held hostage by the ‘Doublespeak’ coming out of TV Land for far too long.
Ever since William Paley demanded that the News departments had to begin generating profits to sustain their viable existence along side the “entertainment” juggernaut that creates their wealth is what began the inexorable decline of truth and cognitive reasoning that the Murrow’s, Cronkite's, Rather’s et al. of the world built into the Public Trust; now all but a fleeting memory for those of us now too old to care or too young to understand the transition therein!
I watched “Nasty Bullosi” thank George Floyd for dying, so We the People can have justice???
Really??? As I said, too old and white to care anymore.
An overabundance of conjecture, conspiracy theory, misinformation, disinformation and outright lies are causing our schism from reality, plunging us instead into the abyss of absolute nonsense!
I watched a video of a black man being MURDERED IN THE FIRST DEGREE for 91/2 minutes! Yet, I was told innumerable times by the defense and several suspect news corp.se to ignore what I saw! Fellini + 1 meets Rudy in 91/2 .
Ghouliani once quipped, “truth is not truth”???.....and he’s a lawyer, ex mayor and a rabid Rump backer.
My point is, nothing will change until our sources of information that are force fed by every source medium are thoroughly vetted, fact checked and run through the “truth sifter” before reaching our virgin ears.
Thankfully, we have you, SXM 127, FSTV and all of the other True Patriot Commandos that really do love “America” telling it like it is, without having to “Make” it “Great Again” and fight every day like the manic mercenaries that you all are and for that, I thank you and the sane half of America thanks you!
And the Oscar goes to……MSM [Michelangelo Signorile’s Media].
Right on point Michelangelo as we have come to expect from you. This guy tried (he thought) to pretend he was a "big thinking" liberal, but then he disregarded the facts of the case and got angry when you tried to school him. One thing that he mentioned really got me, that there was an altercation with Mr. Floyd prior to the pinning to the ground and the subsequent death. If he had listened to the trial he would have known that Mr. Floyd (a big man) was reticent to get in the back seat of the police cruiser due to claustrophobia. As someone who has suffered with this for my whole life, I felt sympathy with Mr. Floyd.
Once again, my mind is blown by another unbelievable ignorant phony calling in to your show claiming to be a 'big thinking liberal'. Give me a f-ing break! Did this big thinker Proud Boy even see the video of George Floyd, thrown to the ground, handcuffed behind his back, with the crushing weight of Derek Chauvin compressing his neck mercilessly for almost ten minutes, murdering him before our very eyes while people were pleading for him to stop!? Michelangelo your restraint was amazing. I was outraged and angry hearing him!
He says “convince me”. LOL, and he was serious too. There has to be a clown convention somewhere that he should focus on getting ready for.
Doing your show for as many years as you have certainly has you ready to suss out a phony every time. Had he been a "big-thinker" he'd have been "yeah - butting" the defense's argument the entire time like the rest of us. Once again, you handled the guy brilliantly.
