CNN’S SALLY KOHN THE OPPOSITE OF HATE

Written by Halli Casser-Jayne on . Posted in HC-J Blog

hate

Hate has consumed America, and it’s time we took a good hard look at hate and bigotry and all its ugly incarnations. One of the leading progressive voices in America today, Sally Kohn sits down with Halli on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show to talk about her new book THE OPPOSITE OF HATE: A FIELD GUIDE TO REPAIRING OUR HUMANITY. To fight against bigotry and hatred Kohn asserts, we must first understand its roots. In her new book, she sets out to do just that.

Writer Sally Kohn is a long-time activist, a CNN political commentator and the host of the “State of Resistance” podcast. In researching her powerful book, she spoke with leading scientists and researchers and investigated the evolutionary and cultural roots of hate in its most subtle and obvious forms, from implicit bias and racism to violence and full-blown genocide.

She traveled across the country and worldwide, interviewing fascinating people who have left extraordinary lives of hate behind, including a former neo-Nazi who began to change his life when a cashier at McDonald’s, upon seeing his swastika tattoo, told him, “You’re a better person than that. I know that’s not who you are.” He’s now a Buddhist. And she spoke with a former Palestinian terrorist who, after a prison sentence and even after his daughter was killed by the Israeli military, now works with Israelis to forge understanding and peace. And with survivors of the Rwandan genocide, including an unbelievable story of a man who fell in love with and married the daughter of the man who had slaughtered his entire family. She even spoke with some of her most vicious Twitter trolls, some of whom expressed regret or opened up about their personal hardships and demonstrated their own humanity to Kohn.

hateThe stories abound and are fascinating as well as enlightening.

According to Deem, politics and family dynamics are intertwined. Mapping out a blueprint for change, Deen challenges both the Left and the Right to jointly construct a new and clear moral objective to rebuild a national character that inspires and leads to an American culture that is smart, strong, compassionate, empathetic, and plays by rules that shed the paternalistic authoritarian, religiosity of the past that has divided our dysfunctional nation.

ROMNEY DECLARES WAR

Written by Halli Casser-Jayne on . Posted in HC-J Blog

Paul Ryan

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This morning Republican Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney will announce Paul Ryan as his running mate and in doing so appears to be declaring war against everything that the Democratic Party stands for. With the choice of Paul Ryan, Romney will not only be exacerbating the culture wars, but he appears to have set his sights on two of the great presidents of the Twentieth Century: FDR (The New Deal) and LBJ (The Great Society), indeed, the great shift of the Twentieth Century back to the people. This will be a battle — and perhaps a dangerous one — pitting Conservatives against Liberals, rich against poor, the religious Right against the rest, corporate culture against the unions, The Great Society against the elite. This battle has been a longtime coming, and maybe it is past time to engage. Maybe it will propel this nation forward, when it has been mired in inanity. Maybe it will further divide an already divided nation. Perhaps it will purge us of our differences — what wars often do — that have led to the inability of our leaders to move our country forward in a most necessary way. What Romney’s choice has done, no question, is to take the tired old description of our presidential races that this is the most important election of our lifetime, and make it true.
