Forget the Alamo

Forget the Alamo

Episode 82 highlights dangerousness of RNC Trumpers like Colorado's own Randy Corporon squelching Cheney dissent from the Big Lie and Trump Insurrection. Now, Pence takes on Trump for first time. We ponder how that will that work out.

Chris Tomlinson is a renowned AP foreign correspondent, and now a business columnist at the Houston Chronicle. He authored Forget the Alamo, The Rise and Fall of an American Myth. This true history of Texas (and Colorado) may rock your world. If you want to know the truth, that is.

William Travis, James Bowie, and Davy Crockett were not good people. A myth was fed to Americans to demonize non-whites and justify manifest destiny. On 1/29/22, Donald Trump told an adoring Texas crowd that he loves the Alamo. No wonder. Those men fought for the cause of slavery.

Chris Tomlinson reported from foreign war scenes riven by ethnic conflict. Learn the involvement of Walt Disney, John Wayne, and Phil Collins with distorting facts about the Alamo. Understand motivations some have for distorting history. Fun fact, Chris is optimistic about America righting her ship, and explains why.

Troubadour Dave Gunders is always looking for the silver lining on any situation. That means the sun is involved as it is in most of his superb songs. New Last Chance is perfect for contemplating the fate of those poor soldiers as Santa Ana rode into San Antonio to destroy the slavers at the Alamo.
