2PP009 – 17 June 2009

2pp_album_art_110x1101.jpgJason’s special days are just fun ones today—nothing too serious, which is good, because we start today with a real nutcase and I follow that with something from another. This leads to a discussion of extremists, both on the left and the right. How does extremism relate to terrorism? One of the extremist groups we talk about is in trouble in Australia. We also talk about the influence of the right wing media. There’s also some New Zealand political news this week!

After the discussion, we have comments on our previous episode. That raises topics we discuss. Finally, Arthur provides an update on swine flu in New Zealand.

Join the discussion! Please leave a comment, or you can send an email to arthur[at)2political.com or jason{at]2political.com, or you can ring the US-based 2Political Comment line on 206-426-0527.

Back in 2 weeks!

    I was interested to read about Joan Walsh appearing on Bill O’Reilly re the Tiller murder. I’d NEVER appear on O’Reilly – would you guys?
