Hour 1: Cenk and Iadarola hosting. Part of the Oregon militia situation has come to a head when LaVoy Finicum was shot and killed by authorities last night after fleeing in his truck. Cliven Bundy spoke out about the situation, claiming that the Feds are out of line to kill innocent people trying to simply educate everyone about the Constitution. Video of some of the other militia members reacting to Finicum dying, with extreme anger, fear, and a call to arms. Cenk goes Cenko Unchained at the unbelievable level of White Privilege surrounding this entire situation. A Nevada lawmaker immediately tweeted that Finicum was shot with his hands up, and is now a martyr. Audio of the 18 year old girl that was in the car with Finicum, giving her account of how he was killed. A militia member that was in the other car pulled over gave his account of how Lavoy was killed, describing him as charging the cops.
Hour 2: Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Denmark is implementing a rule that would seize incoming refugees’ belongings that are worth more than $1500. They say that it is being done to pay for accommodating them. Washington DC has ticketed many cars since the snowstorm, totalling in over $1million in fees for residents. They have also towed tons of cars that are parked on snow emergency areas that need to be plowed. A couple of ex-Disney employees are suing the company for replacing them with immigrant employees that they had to train before being fired in favor of the cheaper labor.
