Don’t Believe The Lies, Believe Your Life… Episode 118 with Brian Echevarria

“Don’t Believe The Lies, Believe Your Life”… it wasn’t but a few months ago when I first heard of Brian Echevarria. Nationally, he was little known with respect to politics but then a video of him speaking in front of his local school board went viral. This episode is not about politics, but about Brian’s story. Family is his story…

Who is Brian Echevarria?
On February 14, 2022, Brian Echevarria was to be the 25th speaker at his local school board meeting in Cabarrus County, NC. Brian is passionate with regard to the controversial issues facing our children in the public school system today. Taboo issues like CRT and transgender athletes can quickly derail school board meetings, but Brian’s impassioned & sensible speech got the country talking. The video quickly went viral and he became known as CRT Dad. Brian is much more than the name would imply.  Brian is a Republican candidate for NC House District 73 – Christian, Conservative, Husband, Father, Small Business Owner, and Community Leader.

I am incredibly grateful to welcome my new friend Brian Echevarria as this week’s guest on the Derate The Hate podcast!

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.
