Prisoners of Language: Charlottesville Protest Aftermath

August 28, 2017

I will not bore you with the details of what happened in the Charlottesville Unite The Right Protest; that is relegated to others who covered this event wall to wall. In this episode we’ll have a discussion of how language is used to manipulate you and to a certain extent imprison your mind. White Supremacists, Nazis, Fascists, and racists what do they really mean? Do the people using these terms really understand what they’re talking about??? How are these words inflicted and used as weapons to shape and herd people into groups.
