Hour 1: Ana Kasparian joins Cenk. Updates on the Brussels terrorist attack. The two suicide bombers that killed themselves were brothers, while the 3rd is still on the loose. Ted Cruz has been advocating for police monitoring of Muslim communities in the wake of the Brussels terror attack. Video of Cruz on his radical plan. Videos of President Obama denouncing Ted Cruz’ plans to monitor Muslims, calling it un american and counterproductive. A German politician and huge anti-refugee advocate crashed into a tree, and was rescued by a couple of Syrian refugees. They administered CPR and saved him. When asked his opinion about the situation, he refused to give a conclusion, claiming he wasn’t in his right wits at the time.
Hour 2: A Christian mother and rapper released a song and video called “Gender Bender.” Video of her lamenting the discussion about allowing transgender people into the bathrooms they choose. A bill in Kansas would allow college groups to exclude potential members that they feel dont have the same belief system the group does. Oklahoma state legislation has passed a law that would allow high schools to implement abstinence only education that would teach life begins at conception. The one problem is that the state doesn’t have the money to pay to implement the curriculum. Alabama police posted a Wanted poster online for a man that had a record, but no violent criminal record. The wanted man responded to the post with outrage, pointing out that he avoided a traffic stop and hasn’t done enough to warrant a wanted poster.
