You Were An Actress Yes You Were
doing the Hollywood thing Yeah I was living in Hollywood for about 10 years and I worked as a child doctor started professionally when I was about seven years old. Really did the whole thing. Yeah started in theater worked in New York doing broadway things and then moved out to Los Angeles into a Tv and film and so you did that for a while yes out there for a while now you’re in Nashville you’re doing daily wire commentary Yeah it’s a different world. I would imagine completely it’s a very different world, but at the same time. I think what I love about it and the through line that I found is that it’s still storytelling, especially because I do mostly cultural commentary.
I Am Using Entertainment As A Way To
share my values and to you know communicate the goings-on of the world and especially in a comedic fashion. The entire world revolves around storytelling. We are very much a narrative driven species um and so even though I’m not you know playing a specific character or doing a movie. I am still using you know that form of communication to reach people so let me ask you this dude did either of the two Communist manifestos hit your head They were thrown at your head one one did at a party. Yes, I had a couple of friends expose me for my beliefs basically with other people.
At The Party A Guy Grabbed
it. He had it on his coffee table, which already he’s like as you do where else are they gonna put it grabs it and says hey you. Read this chucks it at me hits me in the head and falls down the other one was thrown at me on bruinwalk which at UCla is our big it’s where everybody tables it’s like buy a donut for you know Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority that kind of thing and I think it was like the socialist society or whatever and they were like throwing communist manifestos out I was like again really are you kidding me. I mean it’s a sign it is I think and you’ve been able to address that so tell me about your experience in southern California. You’re in college as a conservative like that that doesn’t fit at all was it oil and water what was it like absolutely I for my first couple of years I was able to you know skate through.
I Didnt Talk Much About Politics
not intentionally it was. just never really something that I felt like I needed to dive into I was doing you know general ed classes didn’t really come up when I got to my higher level. I was an English major. So my higher level liberal arts classes that’s when I really started feeling the pressure from you know very leftist peers very leftist professors um, but even so I was able to come out still being a conservative. I think I credit that to my family the fact that I was homeschooled.
So I Came With A Very Very
strong value, base pretty unwavering but even through all of that. I still which is controversial in conservative circles. I still believe in higher education really yeah I’m very academic and I think for if you are academic if you are an intellectual if you aspire to you know of course be a doctor. Be a lawyer? It’s necessary but I think that there’s a big push in the conservative world to say you don’t need to go and obviously you don’t but people shouldn’t go and I’m still an advocate for we need conservatives and intellectual spheres. We need yes bad idea to just give all that turf to completely walk away from it Exactly.
Im Generally Of The Brian Kaplan Mindset Of
like you know, I there’s a lot the cost benefit analysis for a lot of people. I don’t think is always there yeah, but like I was watching this this back and forth about um one of there’s some sort of story that came out about the gender studies issue. It was um Oh. It was this Usa today story that came out a few weeks ago and was talking about how you know some crazy you know left-wing nonsense. Gender and so it was about when Katanji Brown Jackson was asked if she was a woman and they went and they asked all these experts well.
What Is A Woman As If
we don’t know yeah and they went to gender expert after gender expert and they all backed up sort of the crazy left-wing view which was you know look we can’t really know and it’s it means so many different things to so many different people yeah and as i was reading it I realized they didn’t have a conservative gender expert to go to now even if they wanted to attempt journalism which they did not, but even if they did who would they talk to exactly right and I think there is that that idea that the conservatives just leave this battlefield and then when journalists who might even be looking for honest answers. To ask the experts in this field? None of us are there exactly it’s kind of like with the culture War like Conservatives have sat in the back seat for so long and we’ve allowed the left to take over Hollywood to completely dominate social media to dominate basically every large institution and i’m worried that I mean we already have lost academia Academia has been you know left-wing for my entire life. My mom was a textbook publisher she experienced it wow um but it is another vitally important institution that if we completely walk away from I mean it’s gone. I think that you know culture is downstream from academia because it starts there in the colleges. It starts with these philosophers that can you know talk in circles and make any 18-year-old believe any of their nonsense they take that out they spew it on.
Tock And Suddenly Its You Know Immersed In
everything that we do I think you you you hit on a good um a point here when you’re talking about the universities that has been the focus of conservatives for a long time and that like they will say they’ll complain about nutty professors and all this crazy stuff that’s going on and I think we’ve just abandoned that until very recently the K through 12 situation yes you mentioned being homeschooled. I mean that is I think the type of thing that gives you that foundation that you don’t get rolled over by every professor when you’re 18. yeah like how can how can we change that side of it. You see a lot of people going in talking in front of these school boards Now that’s a big thing. But this is a this is a big problem.
Think for conservatism the most important thing in my mind is school choice and funding yeah systems are funding the students instead of the systems and giving parents the opportunity that if they want to take their tax dollars and homeschool, their children put them in a private school. Put them in a Christian private school Put them in a you know Jewish school whatever they want they deserve the right. It is the parental right to decide how their children are educated whatever they see fit If you want to put your kids in a public school and have them be indoctrinated by you know nutty second grade teachers. You are more than welcome to that is your right, but it is immoral to force people to pay for programs that they are you know not using that they do not want their kids involved in so I think.
That Is The First Step But
I’m a huge advocate for homeschooling. I talk about it a lot. I got a comment on one of my videos. The other day it was actually while I was on Tim Pool and somebody sent in a super chat and said I’ve watched Red Cooper for a while now and she was the one who convinced me to homeschool my kids and that was like I did it now you can retire exactly that’s all you have to do yeah If I can convince even a couple of parents who you know had it in their mind were nervous about it didn’t know where to start I mean it it completely changed everything about my life like I would not be who I am if I had not had that incredibly strong foundation incredibly strong moral family academic foundation yeah I think that’s. great, I think I feel like there was this We dropped the ball a little bit as conservatives, particularly through Kovid and that so much of the conversation was about hey open these public schools back up.
You Know Come On.
This is ridiculous and yeah sure it was but like what are we arguing for here. We’re arguing to open up the doors to these institutions that are ruining our children. Yeah we we should have taken that opportunity to turn it more towards school choice. I know corey d’angelos you mentioned he’s great and talking about that idea of funding.
The Student Is So Important And
it’s the type of thing. We have a lot of unpopular views like you know I mean like as conservatives we’re never the popular one maybe you were. I don’t know I never was a popular one no one wants to talk. to me at parties Yeah, but like here’s a view where like 80 of the population’s like yeah, We should be able of course to send our school kids to whatever school they want and we just sit on the sidelines. I feel like we don’t we’re not we’re not going on offense enough yep exactly and I think I’ve always said that the one positive thing that came out of Kovit.
I Think There Might Be Two Yeah
was that parents were forced to see what was going on inside of their children’s classrooms. I mean I feel like these educational issues are the most important issues on the ballot in the coming election season. I mean we saw it in Virginia that parents are suddenly you know raging and getting involved and how dare you put me on like an FBi watch list because I’m you know speaking. at school board meetings, but it forced them to sit and watch on zoom as their students were indoctrinated or watched teachers say don’t be in the room while we’re doing zoom because you’re not allowed to see what we’re doing you know BS like you are the parent.
You Are Allowed To Be Seeing What Your
children are learning. So I think that was one of the positive things is it forced parents to have to see exactly what their children were learning in these schools that they’re you know trusting yeah you had the school education thing and alcohol delivery at home. Those are the two positive things.
