We also discuss the recent racially-motived terrorist attack in South Carolina and link the language used by the shooter to the racist Reclaim Australia movement in Australia. We also take on Reclaim Australia’s hijacking of progressive causes and their fake “concern” for feminism, animal rights and queer rights – you can share our meme on this (below) on Facebook and Twitter.
Other stuff covered on the episode is: call in culture versus call out culture, who is to blame for animal exploitation?, and we read out a tweet (embedded below) which debunks the idea of being socially progressive but economically conservative.
We also promote our very first Progressive Podcast Australia meet up. This will be on Wednesday 8th of July at 6.30pm at the vegan restaurant Smith & Daughters – 175 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy, Melbourne. RSVP by the 3rd of July through the Facebook event page or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
