Suzy Shelor returns to Plutopia News Network’s livestream with an exploration of the current state of American politics. Never one to shy away from controversy, Suzy came prepared to offend those who deserve offending, and to support those who don’t. We discuss the January 6th Hearings, the 2022 Texas governor’s race, the Texas GOP party platform, the 1619 Project, Steve Bannon, and much more.
Recorded from our weekly livestream on July 14, 2022.

But it’s definitely shadow stuff — you know, you look in, and you say, “Wow, I’m just as capable as everybody else of having these horrible thoughts.” And if this human is capable of breaking down and having a Karen moment, then I am, too, and I have to go through and confront that person.
