Linh Dinh: Ordinary folks everywhere just want to have lunch!

Listen HERE Linh Dinh, America’s greatest gonzo-journalist-in-exile, argues that “people just want to be left alone, so they can just eat simple food, drink cheap beer, and have conversations. But unfortunately life isn’t that unmolested. That’s been a constant theme in my writing and in my thinking.” I’m not so sure about the cheap beer—my life and conversations have been much better since I gave that stuff up—but other than that, Linh may be on to something. Linh says “I’ve always advocated boycotting the American elections. Americans need to make a stand, they have to declare to history that they’re…

Jonathan Revusky, Linh Dinh, and Yours Truly on Internet Censorship

Listen HERE FFWN recently reported on: “NYT devotes top of front page to propagandizing for YouTube censorship” First half hour: Jonathan Revusky takes a nuanced and ambivalent view. He suggests that defamatory big lies reported by various racist/nationalist types (like the supposed “Muslim rape army,” the alleged Cologne mass sexual assaults, “no-go zones,” and so on) are so bad that maybe we shouldn’t be too outraged if the purveyors get deplatformed. Second half hour: Linh Dinh generally agrees with yours truly that anything that remotely qualifies as non-criminal political speech is protected by the First Amendment, that internet platforms are today’s…

Linh’s brilliant new essay “America as Religion” begins: “I just got off Skype with Kevin Barrett. Interviewed, I sat in the dusty office of our dustier plastic recycling plant. Truck horns and roosters crowing provided background noises. Though we covered many topics, I want to expand on just one, that of America as a religion…” We also “talk about some of the issues that this place raises, such as cultural hegemony, and the Vietnamese taking over…

Linh Dinh on “Endless Culture War”

Listen HERE Linh Dinh is one of America’s best writers. He is now living in Dak Lak, Vietnam, working as a foreman in his brother-in-law’s plastics recycling plant. Read about life in Dak Lak, among other things, in Linh’s new article “Endless Culture War.” How did Linh get unofficially expelled from the American literary scene? “It happened step by step. I didn’t support Obama live everybody else. I’m not a Democrat, not a Republican—I’m neither. So it started there. And then I’d talk about 9/11. And I wrote articles about the Bin Laden assassination. I thought it was nonsense. There…

Broadcasts live Friday 8 to 10 pm Eastern on Revolution.Radio (click on Studio A). Archived HERE. Today’s two guests were purged from mainstream literature and journalism, respectively, for the crime of questioning our culture’s hegemonic narratives…that is, for doing their jobs.
