John Stonestreet and Warren Cole Smith discuss the New York Times “1619 Project,” which marks the 400th anniversary of the arrival of slavery to the American colonies. While the 1619 Project reminds us of this important and tragic anniversary, its express purpose is to “reframe the country’s history.”

John and Warren also discuss the targeting of people with disabilities by the transgender movement, Netflix’s sensationalist portrayal of Doug Coe and the Fellowship in  its series “The Family,” and Alyssa Milano’s false representation of abortion as a positive good for women.
