This is a coming turning point in American history that will make us culturally richer, stronger, and better prepared for the global era. It's very good news. https://t.co/g6o6V7cp3k— David Rothkopf (@djrothkopf) March 15, 2018
Trump is peak white male privilege. That's why so many white males (and really primarily white males) defend him. He reveals what is wrong and despicable about this historical perversion that has corrupted our society.— David Rothkopf (@djrothkopf) October 23, 2019
it is white, male dominated, corrupt, anti-science, anti-history, anti-fact, anti-Constitution, anti-rule of law, anti-international system, pro-Russian, pro-dictator and pro-authoritarian, anti-environment, anti-human rights, anti-everything good that America has stood for.— David Rothkopf (@djrothkopf) July 14, 2019
Just finished another really good episode of @DeepStateRadio–this one featuring @AVindman @IvoHDaalder & @KavitaPMD. In which we ask the question “What more can and should we do to help Ukraine?” Should post v. soon. Don’t miss it wherever fine podcasts are given away free.— David Rothkopf (@djrothkopf) March 10, 2022
Note to journos: When GOP defeats legislation created to preserve American's fundamental right to vote the story is not "Biden loses"–it is "America is in peril" or "GOP seeks white minority rule." It is part of a bigger story about the systematic GOP attack on our democracy.— David Rothkopf (@djrothkopf) January 19, 2022
Made a joking reference yesterday that given that a majority of white men still support Trump maybe we should give them a time out from politics. Judging from the response, I would say that the area of overlap in a Venn diagram showing Trumpers and Incels would be very high.— David Rothkopf (@djrothkopf) March 19, 2019
Tweeted this 2018 article out yesterday but it's worth resending. Our gun problem is our race problem. The 3% of Americans who own 50% of our guns–arguably the most heavily armed segment of any society on earth–are largely white men w/"racial fears." https://t.co/vPCSzuQ6C4— David Rothkopf (@djrothkopf) August 6, 2019
How much of the damage we see in the world is the result of the over-weening and insatiable egos of aging white men?— David Rothkopf (@djrothkopf) January 15, 2020
One thing we have learned in the past 3 years is that stupid white men are the most loyal base in American politics.— David Rothkopf (@djrothkopf) September 25, 2019
The GOP is waging a relentless war against women, people of color, immigrants & the LGBT community. Yet another reason why I don’t think a white male should be the Dem 2020 nominee. And all the polls show a diverse group can win and our best candidates come from that group.— David Rothkopf (@djrothkopf) May 15, 2019
It's not like we need another example of white privilege. But the fact that we had an attempted coup by a white supremacist mob a month ago & not a single one of its organizers or inciters has been arrested is way up there in the annals of justice system inequities (& failures.)— David Rothkopf (@djrothkopf) February 6, 2021
Putin is the last gasp of the old Soviet dream in the same way that Trump, McConnell & much of the GOP are the last gasp of the old white supremacist world of Jim Crow/the Confederacy. They're doomed. But they will make the last days of their dangerous delusions agony for us all.— David Rothkopf (@djrothkopf) February 12, 2022
I don’t think David Rothkopf, the host of Deep State Radio, cares about your interests.
“As we enter the “energy war” phase of the global crisis triggered by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Americans will be asked to make greater sacrifices and the government will be required to do more to maintain the political will needed to defeat Vladimir Putin and support Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
President Joe Biden took important steps toward that goal Tuesday when he announced the United States would, like a number of allies, stop buying Russian energy products.
He described why he was taking the step and the measures his administration would take to reduce the harm done to American consumers. He also resonantly noted that when people are asked to pay more at the pump, they should see it as dealing with “Putin’s price hike.” …
But Biden and his team, who have handled this crisis so masterfully so far, must reach out to reasonable voices from the other party and seek the kind of support and spirit of common interests that have served us so well in moments like this in the past. …
Now is a moment to step up, to make the modest sacrifices being asked of us, to be prepared to make them for as long as it takes to turn back the monster in the Kremlin, restore security to Europe and bring justice to the brave people of Ukraine.”
It is more like … now is the moment to step up our attacks on the foreign policy establishment and use the energy crisis that they have caused as a stick to bludgeon our enemies.
