Porkins Policy Radio episode 114 Nazi Captain America with Ryan Carey

Ryan Carey joins me once again to explore the strange world of comic books. We begin by looking at freelance comic writer Nick Spencer and his Nazi Captain America story-line. Ryan gives us an overview of Spencer’s reboot which has Captain America as a secret Nazi working for the evil “Hydra” since the very beginning, the Nazi’s winning the war, and good old Cap bringing about the Fourth Reich. Ryan and I talk about Marvel’s marketing of this new Captain America with Hyrda logo’s on all sorts of merchandise. We also touch on the alt-right’s embrace of this new Nazi Captain America. We look at neo-nazi’s wearing Hyrda tee shirt’s at the Charlottesville’s protests, and Andrew Anglin’s positive review of Nick Spencer’s Captain America. Ryan and I then move onto the strange and failed political career of Spencer in Cincinnati. We talk about Spencer’s run for city council and his racist political platform which sought to drive out black owned businesses. We touch on his desire for 200 more cops in order to clean up the streets from the “drug dealers, thugs, and prostitutes.” Ryan and I talk about Spencer’s bogus accusations that black owned radio stations and clubs were encouraging shootings through out the city. We also discuss his claims that a cabal of drug dealers and prostitutes were targeting him for assassination.

In the second hour Ryan and I address the insane complaints about Marvel comics being some sort of propaganda arm of social justice warriors. We juxtapose this with people like Nick Spencer. Later Ryan and I talk about the proposed partnership between Marvel and Northrup Grumman. Ryan explains how this all fell apart at NY ComicCon after fan push back. We explore this proposed crossover with the Avengers and N.G.E.N. (Northrup Grumman Elite Nexus) which would have been a free all ages comic. The comic would have even included full page adds and recruitment information for Northrup Grumman. Ryan and also discuss the long relationship between Marvel and Pentagon. We finish off by musing about the boring and predictable nature off the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and where it may be headed.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 106 Post Charlottesville with Chuck Ochelli

Chuck Ochelli joins me to discuss the aftermath of the violence in Charlottesville and the rise of right wing racist groups. We begin by breaking down the initial protest over the taking down of a statue Robert E Lee. Chuck and I offer up our thoughts not only on America’s new found love of statues from the 1950’s but the make up of this crowd of alt-right protesters. Next Chuck and I explore the racist and racialist history of America and its deep roots in our society. Chuck explains the difference and how racialism has infected most of the population. We talk about the casual racism that persists in America and how it has morphed into the extreme forms that we are seeing at the moment.

In the second hour we discuss self proclaimed white nationalist Chris Cantwell and his bizarre saga which ended with him crying on YouTube. I talk about his strange trajectory from sweaty, unfunny libertarian “stand-up”, to neo-nazi skinhead “activist”. Chuck and I explore how a man as insignificant as Cantwell gravitates to a racist ideology. We then touch on how the alt-media has slowly been infiltrated and co-opted by these right-wing fascist groups. We also look back historically to the 1990’s when the FBI and other groups began infiltrating and radicalizing the Patriot and Militia movements. Chuck and I debate whether the government may be preparing us for another major act of right-wing domestic terrorism by looking at the bizarre case of Jerry Drake Varnell in Oklahoma City. I also touch on Johnny Bangerter, his history as a spokesperson for the White Power Movement, and the efforts by the government to involve him in the OKC Bombing. Chuck and I try to end on a positive note by offering up our own thoughts on how to combat this problem and grow as a nation.
