High Noon for Senator Murphy
Episode 223: Rumble w/ Michael Moore
On the day of the school shooting at Oxford High School last week, Senator Chris Murphy delivered a passionate speech on the Senate floor tying together the dishonest “sanctity of life” rhetoric from conservatives and the culture of guns, violence and death that is plaguing America. Senator Murphy has been a leading voice when it comes to gun violence in America ever since the Sandy Hook massacre on December 14, 2012 in Newtown, Connecticut.
So I asked him to join me on this week’s episode of Rumble with Michael Moore. We discussed how America’s founding violence against slaves made the disregard for human life part of our national ethos and how America’s modern day wars overseas continues to legitimize and promote violence both abroad and at home. Senator Murphy wrote a book last year on these subjects titled, “The Violence Inside Us: A Brief History of an Ongoing American Tragedy.” We also discussed the possibility and the limits of gun legislation, the power of visceral, uncensored images to change history, and the potential compromise on filibuster reform.
I hope you’ll give this a listen and share with friends and family.
