Just when you thought it was safe to ignore public health orders and send your children back to school, Doug looks at a new scary concept coming for your children. It is falsely labeled Critical Race Theory and it is sending white racist soccer moms screeching into school board meetings across the country so their children won’t have to talk about racism.

After the catastrophic disenfranchisement of voters in Georgia recently and the hundreds of copy cat bills across the country, Doug makes the case why elections need to be federalized.

In this episode Doug talks to Nick Little, Legal Director of the Center for Inquiry, about several recent federal court decisions that ignore science and logic to allow churches to ignore public health orders during this pandemic.

Nick explains how this all started with the Hobby Lobby contraceptive case and we will be living with it for some time to come.
