Tony Katz Tonight Radio – 5/28/14 The Weak Obama Doctrine and Boycotting MSNBC is Meaningless

President Obama’s speech to graduating West Point cadets was not only uninspired, but it showed the dangerous implications of his world view versus the real world. Tony discusses where the President’s anti-leadership doctrine constantly misses the mark, and why it matters.

Plus, groups want to actively boycott MSNBC over remarks The Cycle host Toure made regarding Holocaust survivors. As Tony discusses, Toure is an awful person, but you can’t boycott something that no one watches anyway.

Tony Katz Tonight Radio – 5/22/14 – Anti-Gun Is Anti-Protection

The group Moms Demand Action, headed up by Shannon Watts, is thrilled that Chipotle has told its customers not to bring guns into their stores. Moms Demand says they are about common sense gun reforms. But, as Tony explains, with this new development, it’s clear that Moms Demand is not only anti-gun, but anti-protection.

Also, Tony has a great plan for bringing Illinois refugees into Indiana. But first, they must promise not to bring any of their old ways with them. That includes Bears paraphernalia and deep-dish pizza.

Tony Katz Tonight Radio – 5/21/14 – Obama’s VA “Outrage” and a Second Look at CNN

Plus, Tony takes a look at CNN. Is this the network primed for a comeback?

Tony Katz Tonight Radio – 5/20/14 – Failing The Students and Healthy Indiana

Schools have now taken to ending programs and events that highlight the achievement of some of their students for fear it might make the others students feel bad. As Tony discusses, this is just another example of how modern day education is failing students, and America.

Plus, Ben Domenech of The Transom and Heartland Institute talks about Healthy Indiana 2.0. Is this just Medicaid expansion, or is Gov. Pence just in a hard spot?

Macklemore: anti-Semite or Schmuck?

At a concert in Seattle, one-time kitsch rapper and now full-throated social consciousness rapper Macklemore wore a costume to make himself look like a bad comic’s stereotypical Jewish man, including a curly hair wig, gold chains and a nose prosthetic.

No one really knows why he wore the get-up at a surprise performance at the Experience Music Project Museum on Friday night (thought, one reason could be that none of the Jews he was mocking would be there on a Friday night… it being Friday night, and all.) And no one is sure if the intent of the costume was to be antisemitic.

Intent and reality are often two different things. I’m sure President Obama didn’t intend for people to lose their doctors or their plans under Obamacare. It just, you know, happened.

The folks at The Daily Dot say that Macklemore is Jewish, even though he personally denies it:

Macklemore’s relationship with Judaism is an enduringly odd one: While some self-appointed experts claim he’s one of god’s Chosen people, the man himself denies such ancestry.

He announced his appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2013 by blowing the Shofar, used to announce the beginning of the Jewish High Holidays.

When Lady Gaga put out her latest release, ArtPop, it was supposed to signify that that she was going to bring together art and pop culture; as she, in her head, was the only person capable of such a phenomena. ArtPop, instead, has been a disaster for the label, costing it $25 million dollars. The music was reviewed unfavorably, to be kind.

Why did it flop? Because when the artist thinks their existence is more important than their art, they usually end up creating art that no one wants. Right, Kanye?

Macklemore has, quite clearly, reached that moment. Who knows what he was trying to pull with the antisemite get-up (maybe he was, as some reported, trying not to be mobbed by fans upon his arrival and just wore the get-up on stage.) But this, mixed with his wedding hysteria at the Grammy’s, puts him on the Gaga Train to Laughingstock.

And there’s always room for one more on board.

Tony Katz Tonight Radio – 5/16/14 – Zero Tolerance Policies and VA Scandal
