We’re honored to be joined by political activist and actress Rose McGowan for this week’s episode, discussing the hypocrisy of the Democratic Party, the culture of fear and violence in Hollywood, and the solidarity of the ruling class — from the CIA to the media.
For Rose, the story of the Democratic Party is the story of a cult: Google the definition, she suggests, and it’s all too obvious. The demand of unconditional loyalty sits at the center of this comparison. Leftist organizers know that lobbying the Democrats for universal healthcare, a jobs guarantee, or reduced police budgets results in personal attacks, accusations of supporting the far-right, empty gestures — in essence, anything but the basic human right we’re asking for. The Democratic establishment depends upon partisan polarization — the eternal, anti-materialist struggle between Team Red and Team Blue — to insist that any political activism outside this binary is toxic, dangerous, “asking too much.” Rose’s critiques of this controlling political cult, which asks for everything and gives nothing in return, remind us how essential it is that we not only ask for more, but demand it. We hope you enjoy this thought-provoking episode of Krystal Kyle & Friends — and we hope you come back for more next week.
Audio of this episode of Krystal Kyle & Friends will be available on Substack, Pandora, Stitcher, Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and more tomorrow evening.
