Guest: Joe Lombardo, co-coordinator for the United National Antiwar Coalition, talks about freedom of speech and its antithesis, the promotion of racial and ethnic hatreds to expand the empire.
This is the second time Joe forgot to call in during the show. I had his cell, and called him, but he said he was boarding a plane in Ecuador and couldn't call us back. With his scheduling problems, I hope that the plane headed off in the right direction.
Joe and the United National Antiwar Coalition do great work, and I was very disappointed not to get him on the program. However, it is inexcusable if a person says he will call in, and then just doesn't. Maybe his calendar is just crumpled up notes in his back pocket that go through the laundry a few times before he tries to read them. But his system, whatever it is, will never make even a dent in the empire.
