I Don't Speak German

May 9, 2022

Jack continues to tell an increasingly (and understandably) resentful Daniel all about insidious YouTube ‘comedian’ and political commentator Jimmy Dore, detailing his ‘leftist’ or ‘progressive’ version of reactionary politics via accounts of his slimy transphobic coverage of the Lia Thomas story (leading to a bizarre open challenge to all trans man basketball players), his frothingly misogynistic coverage of Taylor Lorenz’ interview about the harassment she faces, and his insane conversation with deeply silly and unpleasant Stalinist Caleb Maupin, in which they free associate (based on a ridiculous Grayzone article) about ‘Breadtube’ being run by the CIA. Along the way, it becomes very clear to see that their version of socialism is the national kind. Also features a discussion about Libs of Tik Tok.
