I’ve never listened to CTH, but I read that interview, and it was fucking awful, every line of it.

If nobody at the podcast wants to apologize for it, or even acknowledge it, fine. They can do that. But they don’t get the benefits of an apology too. I feel like you’re asking, “What else do you want from them?” And we’re replying, “What do you mean, ‘else’?”

Also, I get that everyone has their own priorities and that mine won’t necessarily align with yours, but most people can still, to some degree, attend to all of the causes in our portfolio of them. Some of the accusations of racism relate to the whole “class before race” approach to activism. It’s not racist, but it’s adjacent enough to make my skin crawl.

Nobody says “class before the environment.”

Nobody says “class before foreign policy.”

But whenever a cop murders an unarmed black person, and people protest, some nimrod or another will pop up to complain that we should be focusing on overthrowing capitalism first.

All the people defending them have the same obnoxious, detached sense of humor as them.

Well, it has to be detached because it's all about saying inflammatory things for no reason or dunking on easy targets.

It's a shame because some of them can do really solid analysis.

They make over 130K per month (not year, month) on Patreon. Their success is directly attributable to all the outside advice and criticism that they 100% listen to, so they will be nuking their account any day now.

Plenty of people make way more money than they do. Does that mean criticism of them is even *less* warranted? This argument wouldn’t be convincing if you applied it to Howard Stern or Don Imus.

Maybe I'm missing something, but don't the suspected racists have their own podcast? Why should Chapo get canceled by association?

I think CTH still does more good than harm in terms of contributing to and popularizing the emergence of a "new left" in the U.S. And I'm glad that many of their listeners have moved to the left of them and don't buy into Amber's dumb Red Scare takes.

When Amber's BFF Angela Nagle came out w her crappy, poorly researched borders piece and went on Tucker, Amber was running around the internet defending Nagle, while Virgil Texas tweeted "angela nagle IS the left case against open borders." So it's not like they're all on the same page about everything.

I think he was joking about former FM connor exercising the nuclear option here (I do like the guy but he's got similar opinions about how having social justice considerations is always at the expense of class consciousness)

I see Angela Nagle went back on Tucker Carlson to help him skewer the DSA and the entire American left. She closes by saying no "normal person" could ever stomach attending a DSA Convention.

There is absolutely no way I am going to watch that clip but none of this sounds the least bit surprising. Just curious, did you post that here because it seems the most relevant place or has there been a recent CTH-Nagle thing?

Didn't know where to post it. Nothing new re: CTH and Nagle that I know of, no. She's been a topic in the feminism c/nc and the left podcast thread, too. Just posted here bc it's the most recent thread to mention her.

Nagle implies that the DSA was much better before all the new people joined. What great work she's done w her 15 minutes of fame.

She probably means the wrong kind of people are joining but the DSA growth being a bad thing is a galaxy-brained take.
