Why do they call it “public broadcasting” when it promotes actions against the public interest? What do we pay our tax dollars for “public radio” that advocates theft in the midst of rioting? On Thursday, NPR’s blog “Code Switch,” with the slogan “Race In Your Face,” posted an interview promoting a new book titled In Defense of Looting. This tweet says it all for us:
Publishers Weekly‘s review sells the book on Amazon: “Osterweil debuts with a provocative, Marxist-informed defense of looting as a radical and effective protest tactic…a bracing rethink of the goals and methods of protest.”
NPR’s Natalie Escobar summarized author Vicki Osterweil’s current take:
Now, as protests and riots continue to grip cities, she argues that looting is a powerful tool to bring about real, lasting change in society. The rioters who smash windows and take items from stores, she says, are engaging in a powerful tactic that questions the justice of “law and order,” and the distribution of property and wealth in an unequal society.
Escobar blandly asks the author to paint a “Marxist-informed” picture of why radicals loot:
It gets people what they need for free immediately…
It also attacks the very way in which food and things are distributed. It attacks the idea of property, and it attacks the idea that in order for someone to have a roof over their head or have a meal ticket, they have to work for a boss, in order to buy things that people just like them somewhere else in the world had to make under the same conditions. It points to the way in which that’s unjust. And the reason that the world is organized that way, obviously, is for the profit of the people who own the stores and the factories. So you get to the heart of that property relation, and demonstrate that without police and without state oppression, we can have things for free.
What kind of madness is this? If people just steal everything to “have things for free,” how does society function? Escobar asks about small businesses being devastated by looting. Escobar asked about neighborhoods losing essential businesses. There are apparently NO essential businesses.
Why are taxpayers forced to pay to promote that it is OK to loot them and steal from them? NPR needs to be disposed of.
Ronny tried 8 straight years to “defund” it! A liberal named Bob Dole was against Ronny.
I did not vote for the liberal in 1996
Author Vicki Osterweil is not even sure of it’s own sexuality.
How can it redefine what this or that other thing is?
It doesn’t know what it is!
‘In Defense of Looting’ Author Says the Value of Small Businesses Is a ‘Right-Wing Myth’
This is who Vicky osterweil actually is. It’s name is willie but now it is vicki….
Indeed, in an interview with Escobar, Osterweil claimed that looting — which it defined as “the mass expropriation of property, mass shoplifting during a moment of upheaval or riot” — is a tool for justice that doesn’t really harm anyone
According to Osterweil, looting “attacks the very way in which food and things are distributed. It attacks the idea of property. It claimed that property itself is unjust because it means that “in order for someone to have a roof over their head or have a meal ticket, they have to work for a boss, in order to buy things that people just like them somewhere else in the world had to make under the same conditions.”
More lunacy at the link below. These social retards are batshit crazy.
This bullshit is promoted by NPR(National Panhandler Radio)
Why should tax dollars promote theft and violence. NPR, like planned butcherhood should be defunded.
Biden Signals He Wouldn’t Use National Guard to End Riots as President
sleepy joe biden supports this lawlessness as does his slut vp pick….
The leftist democrats are lunatics….
I can hardly wait for the imbecile greg to wake up, 8 times zones away, to defend and support this….
@July 4th American: So, where does Osterwell live? I’m sure she would have no problem with people coming into her home and taking whatever they “need”… since there is no private property.
How quickly do you think that concept would fall apart if it was applied to those that espouse it… directed at others?
Yea, this piece of work would be the first to scream foul. Then he/she/it would call the poe-lice except there would be no poe-lice.
>b>Cultural Marxism, Are We Supposed to Ignore What All the San Francisco Looters Have in Common?
Cultural Marxism Running Amok – San Francisco Media Say Term “Looters” is Off Limits
t first I thought this was a parody of news media outlooks. However, once I saw the article [ABC News] I realized it was not a spoof; it’s very real.
The San Francisco news desk of ABC7 actually has a position called “race and social justice reporter” who claims the term “looting” is a politically and culturally incorrect way to describe the looting that has been taking place over the past several days. However, I’m not exactly sure of the journalist’s qualifications for reporting, because he also claims not to be able to see the race of the people doing the actual looting. WATCH:
… In order for the ideological leftists to continue advancing their insane ideology, they have to pretend not to know things. Race and social justice reporter Julian Glover is certainly proving that point by pretending not to see who is doing the robberies.

Why Crime Is Out Of Control in San Francisco
without police and without state oppression, we can have things for free.
Does the author stop to think? Who the hell will make things that are given out for free? The materials for those free products must just appear in the factories where the volunteer workforce cobbles away happily then the products are wished into the stores.
Any other scenerio might be slaves of the state unpaid that will after work line up for food and the selection of the products will be state decisions, like the model T would you like it in black or dark charcoal?
Lets get this author to build a free pencil with all components
from scratch, for the next novel. All materials must be renewable and done only in a totally green economy. No fossil fuels at all.
Here we see delivery of free products coming to port on a sign up for a free cruise ship.
Notice how all these geniuses offering all the advice on how to make live all utopic don’t have business, don’t have employees and don’t have any economic responsibilities? We’ve also seen that when the money comes out of their pockets, even socialist Bernie won’t pay his people minimum wage.
