Hour 1: Multiple state governors have declared that they will not accept refugees fleeing violence in their home countries in wake of the Paris attacks, despite Obama’s decision to keep accepting refugees. Ted Cruz wants to only admit Christian refugees, leaving Muslims behind. Video of President Obama criticizing this line of thinking as Un-American; to have a religious test for allowing refugees in. Cenk reminds these Republicans that the Statue of Liberty is engraved with words that espouse opposing views to theirs. The results and perceived winner of the Democratic debate seem to be straightforward. Video of Hillary Clinton curiously connecting her buddy relationship with Wall St to 9/11. Video of Bernie Sanders focusing on the fact that campaign contributions mean the big donors want a return on their investment. Democratic insiders called the win for Hillary. Sarah Palin spoke with CBS about the latest in her life. Video of Palin being asked about Bristol’s 2nd pregnancy out of wedlock despite their preaching and judging against others doing it. Palin responded to criticism by saying God gives them 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or 5th chances, so it’s ok. Video of Palin being asked about the loss in ‘08; that she was to blame.
Hour 2: Ana joins Cenk for SCS. A new Muslim based movement has been revived, where peaceful Muslims exclaim that the actions of terrorists don’t represent them. Video of the #NotInMyName movement. Ana thinks it’s important to do campaigns like this to counteract the knee jerk reaction to blame all Muslims for these attacks.
