Emil Amok’s Takeout: Proof that Trump wants to be King; Plus, Dolores Velasco, Pete Hamill, Race, Harvard, Affirmative Action, Global Warming, Covid Crisis, Schools Opening, and my pal Ted the philosopher

Another engaging podcast for your long ride to nowhere.
on Trump, Dolores Velasco, Pete Hamill, Race, Harvard, Affirmative Action, Global Warning, and a philosopher named Ted.

Don’t forget to read Emil’s columns, especially at the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund.

Emil Amok’s Takeout: Emil talks Covid with a philosopher, Part 2; Propping up Small Business; and the Virtual Harvard Graduation and my Covid Commencement speech.

Hi Everyone!
This edition features my talk with Philosopher Theodore Schatzki about whether the U.S. is too big to fail, meaning the government should just go ahead and prop up all individuals and small businesses–just as it catered to big business since day one of the Trump administration. Also,  virtual graduation week is coming to Harvard. Here come more briefs in the big legal battle over Asian admissions.  But for you Classes of 2020 everywhere, my thoughts. No one invited me to speak like they did more than 40 years ago. That’s all right. Read it here.   And then listen to the podcast. Some reports say it will take $10 trillion to save everybody economically. But that’s better than letting a large fraction die, don’t you think?

Stay amok.

On Lady Gaga, Rush Limbaugh, and bullying as “racism without color”

The Rush Limbaugh Internet Sex tape story, also known as the failed Sandra Fluke/Attack on women satire, is getting to be all that El Rushbo can handle.  He’s apologized for his statements,  but it’s not good enough.

Limbaugh’s in Limbo. And his story trumps Super Tuesday and the Obama presser.

It’s become  the GOP’s War on Women.

I see it more as people realizing that Limbaugh is just a bully and doing something about it.

It’s about time.

Limbaugh used up his “Get-out-of -jail-free” card when he dodged his OxyContin charges. Now it seems the world is realizing it doesn’t have to take Limbaugh’s crap anymore.

Got a bully story?  Check out my bully story at the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund blog where I coin the phrase “Bullying is just racism without color.”

Conversely, racism is bullying in color.
