Episode 101: If My Child Identified As A Train

We as a society cannot be expected to bend reality in order to accommodate those who lack the ability to accept reality. We also must acknowledge that truth, no matter whether it offends me, you, or anyone else, is still the truth and by inhibiting one’s ability to speak the truth, it does not make it any less true. This simply creates an environment filled with more division and hate among those who disagree.

While it is often considered taboo to discuss, and often a “cancelable” offense, I think it’s important that we continue as a society to discuss controversial topics such as transgender athletes competing in events against opponents that are not of their biological sex. Some (big tech & big media) would have you believe that if you are on the opposing side of this topic, for whatever reason, you are committing “hate speech”, and you should be silenced. Like most things, I believe if we choose to silence those with whom we disagree, we drive a larger wedge of hate between us. Maybe that is by design, but it’s a design I refuse to accept.

Episode 76: An Eye on Education, Cameras in the Classroom? …with Dr. Elana Fishbein

What are your thoughts on the K-12 public education system as it exists today in our country? In recent weeks and months we’ve seen several instances where fed up parents and community members have stood up to school boards all over the country, due to any number or reasons, be it CRT, LGBTQ curriculum, mask mandates, etc…Β 

Dr. Elana Fishbein of No Left Turn in Education is no stranger to the Derate The Hate podcast. We first spoke back in Episode 45 when No Left Turn was just a couple months in to their battle against the indoctrination that so many are becoming fed up with in our K-12 education system.Β  A lot has been happening with Dr. Fishbein and the No Left Turn organization since we last spoke, including some legal battles and working on proposed legislation to get cameras in to classrooms for full transparency of what our children are being taught.
