Hour 1: Cenk and Iadarola hosting. In the wake of the latest Chicago police murder to gain national attention, protests have formed to force Rahm Emanuel out at mayor. Video of Emanuel speaking to a crowded room, apologizing and calling for change. Although his words seemed sincere and thoughtful, Cenk isn’t buying his sincerity due to his history as a politician. Video of Emanuel getting emotional at the story of a Black kid asking him if the cops treat him the way they treat Black citizens. Fox and Friends had Krav Maga trainers on the show to teach people and their kids how to fight gunmen in an active shooter situation. Video of the demonstration. Discussion about how horrible of an idea this is to attack an active shooter, especially as kids.
Hour 2: Ana joins Cenk for SCS. The terrorist that attacked a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs had his day in court where he exclaimed he did it as a warrior for the babies. A California woman was angered by a group of Muslim people praying and attacked one of them. Video of her fight and anger. An experiment was conducted by Greenpeace that exposed 2 prominent climate change skeptics/scientists that were paid off to write scathing articles on the subject.
