Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Andy Worthington December 30, 2021

Welcome to Gorilla Radio’s first 2022 broadcast, recorded December 30th, 2021.

Honestly, we know the United States was never just. It’s a human rights horror show now and always has been. Yes, “America” the propaganda construct is a triumph – we often have to remind ourselves of its genocides, slavery, and wars of plunder – but to any with even superficial familiarity, expecting justice from America is beyond naive. That’s why some in Britain where surprised when their appellate court served journalist, publisher and political prisoner Julian Assange into the maw of America’s industrial-prison complex. But then, justice is a stranger these days in England too.

Andy Worthington is an English journalist, activist, author, photo-historian, filmmaker, musician, song-writer and principle of The Four Fathers band. He is too co-founder of both the ongoing Close Guantánamo campaign and successfully completed We Stand With Shaker campaign. Worthington’s book titles include: ‘The Guantánamo Files: The Stories of the 774 Detainees in America’s Illegal Prison’, ‘Stonehenge: Celebration and Subversion’, and ‘The Battle of the Beanfield’. Andy’s articles appear at his website, AndyWorthington.co.uk, where he’s inviting participants to take part in 2022’s Close Guantanamo effort.

One thought on “Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Andy Worthington December 30, 2021”

  1. Hey Chris, I just listened to the latest podcast and want to extend my thanks for having Kim Goldberg on to discuss the mass psychosis that is occurring within the Covid paradigm. This is about the only thing that makes sense to me as to why my fellow comrades on the left have been supporting the mandates, passports, lockdowns, and jabs – without question. I tend to question everything and follow the money, and as a result broke free from the public health narrative after doing a ton of research on my own. I am all for supporting the greater good, the collective wellness of society, but I need to know that what is being pushed upon society is indeed what is best for the collective. It has disheartened me to a huge degree that what I have often thought of as the ‘intellectual left’ has been either onboard, or basically mute, on a matter of extreme importance to our collective wellness. I appreciated the Hanna Arendt quote you gave, it hits the nail on the head perfectly!

    One of my most disheartened moments was when I heard Noam Chomsky give his opinion of those not supporting the public health mandates. Like Wow, I have admired Noam for decades, it was so upsetting to see him be swallowed up in the manufacturing of consent, since he wrote the book on the topic. I have to wonder if his position has not also caused others on the left to dig in?

    Anyways, just wanted to say thank you for allowing space for this discussion, it is really hard to find left media that will. I hope you will feature more guests who want to speak out on the left, we really need that right now. Much gratitude.
