Interview with former Neo-Nazi Frank Meeink

Image
CLICK HERE FOR INTERVIEW! At 17, Meeink was arrested after he had nearly killed a man and had kidnapped another. Meeink used a gun in the kidnapping, which led to him being tried as an adult; he had recorded the attack on videotape.   Meeink had also been arrested prior for smaller crimes, but for these crimes, however, he was sentenced to three years in prison. Meeink served his prison term near Springfield, Illinois. Prison changed his life. He met people of many different ethnicities. Due to a shared interest in sports, Meeink became friends with many African American prisoners. In games like football and basketball, Meeink earned the respect of fellow African American inmates. Moreover, Meeink felt that the black inmates supported him more than the skinheads while in prison. After getting released from prison, Frank tried to return to his past life, but realized that during his time in prison he had learned that he did not have the same prejudices he had prior to prison. He also

In Response To Nathan Robinson's Guardian Article on Jordan Peterson

Image
My eye was caught earlier today by an article in the Guardian recently offered to us by  Nathan Robinson . For full context, please find link to that article  here .  First point I want to make clear is that Mr. Robinson's article (ridiculously called " Publishers are not obliged to give bigots like Jordan Peterson a platform") is an Op-Ed and clearly listed as such. That's quite a bit better than most of the media which are opinions masquerading as objectivity. I suspect many of you can think of your own favorite example of this. Second point is this isn't an attack on Mr. Robinson himself, but on his article. I'm sure he's a genial man who is kind to animals. Hopefully that won't make it less entertaining. That is where my charity ends. Robinson's article regarding Dr. Jordan Peterson's new book is a proverbial grab bag of half-truth, mistruth, and downright untruth. Mr. Robinson is showcasing either his intellectual laziness or his intellec

How My Interview with Dave Rubin Fell Through

Image
From the outset, I want to make a few quick statements as to a) why I'm writing this piece and b) what my emotional response is to the whole mess. 1) I bear very little ill will to either Dave Rubin , the publishers, or Dave's assistant Helen (who was a pleasure to have an interchange with) for how everything went down. The only issue I have is the thunderous silence that characterized the "responses" to my subsequent emails and how the situation was handled. 2) This article isn't an attempt to make anyone look bad necessarily, it's primarily my own attempt at ventilating my own angst and irritation. My thoughts and opinions are my own and no one else's. 3) I also wanted to write this article as an answer to everyone that has inquired as to how this interview fell through. 4) In spite of it all, I do still admire Dave, Peterson, Harris and the rest of the IDW crew. It would be a pleasure to interview any one of them. With those pro visos in place, enjoy -
