Episode 306 – Ferguson

The Tim Corrimal Show
Episode 306 – August 17, 2014

Show Art - Art Display - Inspiring Hope, Raising Voices, Taking Action to End Gun Violence

On episode 306 of The Tim Corrimal Show, I am joined at the round table by Joe (@Marnus3 on Twitter) from “The Poorly Written Political Blog” and Justice Putnam (@justiceputnam on Twitter) from NetrootsRadio.com and http://www.dailykos.com/user/justiceputnam.

On the show this week we start out with introductions and the “All A Tweetie” segment. Then after Joe gives us another hilarious clown car update, we discuss the indictment of Rick Perry featuring another hilarious parody from Rocky Mountain Mike (@RockyMntnMike on Twitter).  Then we discuss the situation in Ferguson, MO after the shooting of Michael Brown by a police officer and the peaceful demonstrations following featuring a discussion about FOX News selectively editing President Obama’s statement on the situation and the discussion afterwards to make it sound like he was inciting racial tensions.  And after another fabulous commercial from our great friends over at BubbleGenius.com, we listen to what President Obama actually said about the situation in Ferguson, MO and have a discussion about the underlying racism surrounding the events of the past week. Then we discuss clips from Rev. John Hagee preaching from the Gospel of the GOP blaming “nasty welfare recipients, pedophile immigrants” and others for what he claims are the unraveling of America.  And we close out the show discussing the Florida church that cancelled the funeral of a gay man and a Pennsylvania bridal shop that refused to sell wedding gowns to a lesbian couple for their marriage ceremony.
