Ep. 138 The War on Dissidents, Which Krugman Pretends Not to See

13 May 2018     |     Tom Woods     |     16

Krugman makes fun of the idea that conservatives and libertarians are treated particularly unfairly. Why, people criticize Krugman, too, and that’s all right by him! Well, we have more fun in this episode than in any episode in recent memory. Not to mention: Tom says something fairly outrageous and decides to edit it out — then let himself be talked into keeping it in the episode. You’ll know it when you hear it….

    Bari Weiss piece was interesting. Contra Krugman – Woods was incoherent. Also not sure what the point was of dragging Greenwald into the discussion.

      Bob puts this episode in his top five, so I guess there’s just a disconnect on this one.

    John McCain is evil. Like the thief on the cross, hopefully he’ll repent before he dies. But the fact that he’s dying of brain cancer? So what? The man is evil and is on a list that both he and Hillary are near the top of – a list of the sooner the better.

    Obviously once he dies, the State Media will ramp up their lionization of him not just as a politician, but as a statesman, when, in fact, he’s nothing but an evil creep. He will repeatedly, as he is now, be called a war hero, when he’s really a war criminal, who, as someone at Lew Rockwell (maybe Lew himself) once said, should have been turned over to the North Vietnamese to be prosecuted as such.

    His bombing of innocent men, women and children will be ignored – in a war that was none of our business, and, pretty much as usual, was built on a lie (Gulf of Tonkin.)

    His stabbing in the back of POWs and their families will be ignored. (Hey, what about the 400 we left in Korea?)

    His incessant support for all war all the time will be ignored.

    The Keating Five scandal will be ignored.

    His alleged torture in Vietnam, his collaboration with the enemy, and pro-Communist propaganda broadcasts will never be looked into.

    The covered-up Forrestal incident where 134 sailors died and 161 were seriously injured will be ignored.

    And on and on and on. John McCain is a creep that will not be missed.

    (Plenty of truth about McCain on the internet, but here’s an article from today’s lewrockwell.com that is enlightening.

      Well… John McCain ought to be able to take it as much as he can dish it out. People are acting like his illness gives him carte blanche to say idiotic things. McCain himself is the one seeking the attention, you can’t just say whatever you want and then say, “he’s terminally ill which makes him immune from criticism.” That was Tom’s point.

    It’s almost funny how such deeply unserious people like Krugman are considered the adults in the room. This is the great thing about Trump, he helped many people realize what a sham the media really are.

  • David Kawaz Shalita

    you were talking about how liberals dont know the conservative policies and some research, can you provide the link?

  • travis690

    Sen. McCain exhibits the same level of statesmanship as Attila the Hun. Sadly, there are at least 90 other members of the same club that occupy the harrowing halls of the United States Senate.

    Glad I just found this podcast. I don’t know who this Krugman is, but if
    he’s got an entire podcast dedicated to refuting him, it must be good. This was probably a good “intro” episode for me.
