#733 – Zeek Arkham | Cop With Attitude

Listen now

Caleb Beaver (00:00):

Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (00:01):

Oh, bam. We’re live. I forgot to take the trash out last night cuz I was, uh, reorganizing the studio. I got a computer back here and the couch set up and some new camera angles we’re working. I’ll show you, I’ll show you. Uh, we got, we’re gonna go, we got this, we got this camera angle working right?

Caleb Beaver (00:21):

Ooh.

Sevan Matossian (00:22):

Over there.

Caleb Beaver (00:27):

That’s nice. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I like it. Eagle

Sevan Matossian (00:31):

Out. Uh, but had to move the microphone, move some monitors, and then forgot to take the trash out. So at 5 37, my wife’s like, Hey, did you take the trash out? And y you know, we’re, we’re both in bed. And I’m like, no. So that’s 23 minutes earlier than I normally wake up and it’s like vital. Right? That 23 minutes,

Caleb Beaver (00:55):

All that sleep,

Sevan Matossian (00:56):

You don’t understand. You don’t understand. You’re living the cush life over there. You don’t understand the importance of sleep. Do you ever sleep through the night?

Caleb Beaver (01:06):

No.

Sevan Matossian (01:07):

Yeah. Those days are over. Hey, you know, you can forget how to sleep. When I had kids, I, I, I forgot how to sleep.

Caleb Beaver (01:16):

Really? What do you mean by that?

Sevan Matossian (01:19):

You, uh, God, I don’t know what I, I don’t know what I mean by that. That’s just why are you asking the hard

Caleb Beaver (01:25):

Question? Like, it’s hard for you to fall asleep. Like, you couldn’t just like, get yourself to sleep,

Sevan Matossian (01:30):

Not fall asleep, I guess. Uh, but I’ve, I you have this habit to be just on like super alert.

Caleb Beaver (01:38):

Oh, I get you.

Sevan Matossian (01:39):

Like, I don’t like, like I don’t like to have the, like if the heater goes on in the middle of the night, I wake up.

Caleb Beaver (01:44):

Yeah. Anything, like, anything changes in the sounds that are going on in the room, you’re awake. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (01:51):

Yeah. And so I wonder if when you get back home if you’ll have to like, and it was just because we had babies, cuz you’re always like on alert. I wonder if you’re gonna get back home and you, you will have forgotten.

Caleb Beaver (02:02):

I feel like I definitely will not sleep as much as I used to <laugh>

Sevan Matossian (02:06):

Before

Caleb Beaver (02:07):

I left. Yeah. I think before I left I was sleeping like eight, nine hours a night. Now I’m like, lucky if I get six.

Sevan Matossian (02:15):

Yeah, exactly. Interrupted.

(02:18):

I, I for, I force myself to, uh, nap. I just force myself. I’m like, like if I start to get tired and I start, what I’ll do is I’ll start eating when I’m tired in the middle of the day. Mm-hmm. <affirmative> like, like, like nuts and stuff. Snacking. Yeah. I started eating just shitloads of nuts until I don’t feel good. So I’ve, I’ve been telling myself, I mean, this has been going on for years now, but then I’ll tell myself, Hey, just go lie down. And if when you get up, you still want to eat, you can eat.

Caleb Beaver (02:43):

Yeah. Like a 20 minute nap and quickly.

Sevan Matossian (02:45):

Yeah, exactly. And I set my alarm for 21 minutes to force myself to like my, for some reason that puts some pressure on me. That force I fall asleep faster. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>, if I don’t set that alarm, I’ll lie there and I’ll, and I’ll just like entertain thoughts. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>. But if I know I only have a 21 minute window and I give myself that one minute, that’s like, to lie down, take my socks off, organize the pillows, I push, smash a pillow on each side of my head so it plugs my ears and then I put an eye pillow on that. It’s incredible. If you put a pillow on either side of your head, how much sound it muffs? Incredible.

Caleb Beaver (03:18):

I always have the issue that, like, it starts making my, like, I can hear my heartbeat

Sevan Matossian (03:23):

And then Yeah. Yeah. I, yep.

Caleb Beaver (03:25):

And I can’t, that won’t let me fall asleep.

Sevan Matossian (03:28):

Yeah. I hear. And, uh, feel my heartbeat. It it lulls me. It lulls me to sleep because I just listened to my heartbeat. Excuse me. Zeke. Good morning.

Zeek Arkham (03:39):

Hey, good morning. How you doing? Can you hear

Sevan Matossian (03:41):

Me? Yeah. Awesome. Great to meet you brother. Thanks for doing this.

Zeek Arkham (03:44):

No, no problem. Thanks for having me on.

Sevan Matossian (03:46):

I’m, uh, I’m also, um, I, I can’t tell if I, I can’t tell if I’m, if I should clean my ears or not. Do you use Q-tip Zeke?

Zeek Arkham (03:56):

I do <laugh>. Yeah. I’m actually addicting to

Sevan Matossian (03:59):

Them. Yeah, they’re addicting, right?

Zeek Arkham (04:01):

Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (04:02):

I’m trying to break the habit cuz it doesn’t make sense to me that like, I’m like, am I pushing the shit in or am I getting, taking stuff out? And I love it when I love it. When I get wax on ’em, I look at ’em <laugh>, I’m like, yeah. <laugh>. Yeah.

Zeek Arkham (04:19):

I think there’s actually like a bonafide Q-tip addiction.

Sevan Matossian (04:22):

Yeah. It’s a nice feeling, right?

Zeek Arkham (04:25):

Oh yeah. <laugh>.

Sevan Matossian (04:26):

Yeah. It’s affection. It’s affection for your ears.

Zeek Arkham (04:30):

Like half the time you don’t even care if you get waxed from the end of ’em. You’re just like, this is wonderful

Sevan Matossian (04:35):

<laugh>. Right. Um, do you do both at the same time or one at a time?

Zeek Arkham (04:39):

No, you gotta savor one year at a time.

Sevan Matossian (04:42):

Okay, good. I’m glad to hear you say that because a friend of mine told me I wasn’t being efficient by doing one at a time. So I started doing both and recently I switched to just doing one for that same reason. Like, yo dude, chill.

Zeek Arkham (04:53):

Yeah. It’s, it’s, it’s Q-tips. You don’t have to be efficient

Sevan Matossian (04:57):

<laugh>. It’s an indulgence.

Zeek Arkham (05:00):

Absolutely.

Sevan Matossian (05:01):

<laugh>. It’s an, it’s an indulgence. Chill. <laugh> your wife wasn’t, doesn’t want you to be quick. Why would your ears want you to be quick

Zeek Arkham (05:08):

<laugh>? Absolutely. That’s, that’s actually a great point. Right. That’s actually a great point.

Sevan Matossian (05:14):

Similar, similar, uh, event. Uh, Caleb, uh, is deployed overseas in an undisclosed location and Zeke is in the city of

Zeek Arkham (05:26):

New York.

Sevan Matossian (05:27):

New York City. Wow. You’re in a trippy spot to have your mindset, right?

Zeek Arkham (05:32):

Oh, absolutely. Yeah. I’m, I’m a, uh, I’m a red.in a blue city

Sevan Matossian (05:39):

And, and you are a police officer,

Zeek Arkham (05:41):

Right? But I, I’m actually all through the state. I just happen to be based in, uh, in, around the city area.

Sevan Matossian (05:47):

And, and, and what does that mean? Like, in California we have something called California Highway Patrol, or I guess maybe we have sheriff and are you a Marshall?

Zeek Arkham (05:56):

No, I, I, I, I, well, for just to protect myself, I can’t really name my, uh, my organization, but, uh, yeah, we work all through the city. Yeah. All for the city and all through the state.

Sevan Matossian (06:08):

And you, you, when you say police officer, for those of us who are ignorant to it, meaning you went to a police academy, you can write tickets, you have a gun, you have a car with the lights on top,

Zeek Arkham (06:18):

Absolutely. Writing anymore.

Sevan Matossian (06:22):

Uh, say say that last thing again. You broke up.

Zeek Arkham (06:24):

I don’t do much ticket writing anymore. Okay. That’s just, uh, not, not, I’ve never been fond of that. And, uh, I’m thankfully in a place where I don’t have to do it anymore. So I’m, I’m happy for that.

Sevan Matossian (06:35):

Uh, you wear a bulletproof vest?

Zeek Arkham (06:37):

I

Sevan Matossian (06:38):

Do. You apprehend bad guys?

Zeek Arkham (06:40):

Yes.

Sevan Matossian (06:40):

Okay. I had to come up with a couple other things. Since you, uh, weren’t wearing giving tickets, I needed to give you a few more, uh, tests.

Zeek Arkham (06:48):

<laugh>,

Sevan Matossian (06:49):

Um, Zeke, where were you, where were you born? By the way, I wanna say this to by the way, I I found you because I interviewed, uh, Xavier Darosa on my podcast, who I know you’re very fond of. Yes. And he works, he works out at a CrossFit gym about 90 miles north of me, where the executive producer of this show also works out, owns that gym. And, uh, when I was researching him, I came across you and I’m like, oh, I gotta get Zeke Aam on.

Zeek Arkham (07:13):

Yes. Avery’s actually a great guy. We, we saw just read into each other by mistake. And I interviewed him on my podcast, which you see right there. And he’s, he’s got a lot to say. He’s got a lot of information and he and I hit it off pretty quickly. So, uh, yeah, I’m actually pretty fond of Xavier and, uh, I wish him all the best.

Sevan Matossian (07:33):

Yeah. Um, I, I, I love hearing the journey and I, and I can’t wait to hear your journey of how you got to, um, the, that rock between, uh, your ears, how you got your rock and my rock, how they, how they’ve come to think the same way. And if you were always, um, like that, uh, especially living in New York, and I’m in California and we’re in, and I’m in Santa Cruz, California, so we’re in two places where, um, it, it, it it’s not the popular way to perceive the world.

Zeek Arkham (08:04):

Oh, no, not, no. Um, well, actually, I was born in Queens, New York. Uh, I was born right around where, uh, if you’ve ever seen the movie Coming to America. Yeah, I was, I was born right in that area.

Sevan Matossian (08:16):

Okay.

Zeek Arkham (08:16):

And, you know, I I didn’t come from conservative people, you know, my, my mother, uh, was a strict Democrat.

Sevan Matossian (08:24):

Me too.

Zeek Arkham (08:25):

My, my father was actually a, uh, a, uh, what do you call him? A, a black Israelite.

Sevan Matossian (08:31):

Okay. Well, I don’t know. What is that? He’s a Jew.

Zeek Arkham (08:35):

Uh, well, if, if you ever,

Sevan Matossian (08:37):

If my wife’s one of those, I got three little Jewish boys. I’m Armenian, but I got three little Jewish boys. I got

Zeek Arkham (08:43):

No, my father, uh, uh, he was very militant, you could say. Sort of like, uh, uh, yeah, black Hebrew Israelites, they’re, uh, they, they’re very militant. They’re actually very racist. They don’t like anyone who, who isn’t one of them. So I grew up hearing all kinds of lectures about how, you know, I, I’m, I’m African and how I, uh, I’m descended from kings and I’m descending, descended from, uh, royalty and things like that. So I grew up with the exact opposite of my mindset. Now, I actually didn’t achieve this mindset until I started doing more research into what was right and what was wrong. You know, uh, I, I grew up thinking that cops killed black men just for sport, just killed randomly killed them. And I started doing research into what the actual numbers were, and I was shocked. I thought the research was incorrect.

(09:42):

I said, it can’t be that they only, you know, only 20 unarmed black people have killed this year, or, or, you know, 17 and numbers are going down. I, I looked for research to uphold my end of what I thought my end of the opinion. And I was wrong each and every single time. So I started thinking, if I’m wrong about this, what else am I wrong about? Mm-hmm. And, uh, like, like Xavier, I red pilled myself. You know, the more I started looking into research, and the more I started reading, and the more I started looking at different authors like Thomas Soul mm-hmm. I, I, I found myself being corrected over and over and over again. And then I, I joined up, uh, the police force and I started hanging out with other guys who, who were conservatives. And they said, well, why don’t you look into this? Why don’t you look into these facts? And they were right each and every single time, you know, I originally joined the police force because I wanted to bring it down. You know, I wanted to expose all the racism and corruption from the inside. And I wound up, you know, just becoming more of a, uh, of a cop supporter and a cop activist, even though I hate that word, more of a cop activist. And that’s how I got to where I am now.

Sevan Matossian (10:51):

So you, you had that, um, uh, and, and you still have it in, in some respects. Um, you, you weren’t you, your dad, one thing that your dad did impart to you is that you’re not afraid of confrontation. And I don’t know if militant’s the right word, but you went in as basically a double agent. You were so committed to that way that, Hey, I’m gonna go in here and, uh, and, and, and wreak havoc. And instead, and instead you said you looked around and you’re like, wow, none of that shit that they told me that was gonna be here. Well, I shouldn’t say none of it. It’s not the way they said it was gonna be in here.

Zeek Arkham (11:22):

No, not at all. I, I was expecting to see corruption, uh, you know, widespread corruption. You know, the, the main thing that the b l m crowd always says is, why aren’t the good cops turning in the bad cops? Excuse me. And I expected to see all kinds of corruption going on, you know, bad cops plotting their nefarious schemes, you know, while the good cops just kind of coed in the corner and said, you know, we can’t say anything. And, and it, it’s not like that at all. Matter of fact, when cops find out about corruption, it’s usually through the same means as everyone else. The news. It could be someone that we’re working with, and we’ll find, we’ll read the news article and we’ll, we’ll all come in the next day like, Hey, did you hear what happened to this guy? You know, did you, wow.

(12:02):

I had no idea. You know, so, so there’s a lot going on behind the scenes that the public doesn’t know about, but because of sensationalism, like, you know, you watch Law and Order, or you watch, you know, this cop show, it makes it seem like the bad cops are just openly planning and plotting their schemes. You know, it’s, it’s not like that at all. So the more I started doing research, the more I started just, you know, looking into law enforcement and hanging out with law enforcement and seeing what they’re doing, and seeing what actually happens behind the scenes. You know, not, not the drama, not not the stories that you hear, but just what actually happens. I, like I said, I, I, I got red pilled just from the truth.

Sevan Matossian (12:42):

Um, was it scary as you started to get, uh, red Pilled? Um, did, did you have moments where you like, like you felt like the ground was coming out from underneath you? Like, uhoh, what’s going on here?

Zeek Arkham (12:54):

It, it, it wasn’t so much scary. It just made me more sad, I guess, because there’s so much disinformation, you know, going on in, in black communities and just in communities in general. You know, you’ve got all these activists, you know, b l m defund, the police, who they don’t live in these neighborhoods, or if they do, they directly benefit from something like d from the police. They directly benefit from an anti-cop mentality. And there’s so much disinformation going on. You know, like I said, my, my father was a, a black Hebrew Israelite, so he hated the cops. You know, I, I grew up thinking that cops, uh, uh, just wanted to kill me just cause of the color of my skin. You know, my, my, my grandmother wasn’t educated, my father’s mother, so she had a whole lot of dis disinformation that she just spread out ly. Uh, you know, my mother was a, a democrat voted because she thought that’s how she had to vote. Uh, my grandfather was a little bit more conservative. My grandfather was actually in law enforcement, so it was my uncle. So,

Sevan Matossian (13:54):

Wow. Your dad’s dad was in law enforcement?

Zeek Arkham (13:57):

My, no, my, my mother’s father Oh, okay. Was in law enforcement. And my uncle, my mother’s brother was in law enforcement. So they were a little bit more conservative as far as being able to see what happened. But, you know, and what’s the truth of what’s going on out there? But, but I grew up with this mentality because my father, who wasn’t really around, but he, when he was there, he, he made sure he preached to us. Um, but I grew up with this mentality that law enforcement was against us. And it was, it is the exact opposite. You know, there’s a story I always tell where I went out to a family meeting, and my great-grandfather who grew up in 1920s, North Carolina, who actually, and, you know, experienced the clan and experienced, you know, lynchings and things like that. He, he had very much more of a conservative attitude, what would be today be considered conservative.

(14:53):

And I remember I met this family reunion, and I’m, I’m thinking, I’m schooling him. You know, I’m, I’m fresh outta college. I’m, I think I’m dropping all kinds of facts and truth bombs on him. And, uh, he, he stopped me and he said, uh, always be the last person in the room to call something racist so that when you do it means more. He said, because the more you use that word, the more you cheapen it. And he had, he had to be about 90 years old at this time, and he just stopped me right there. And then he went back to talking about whatever he was talking about. And I was, I was so angry and pissed off about that, you know, I went home and I’m thinking, who is he to tell me, you know, I’m, I’m college educated. I just, I just graduated. And then the voice in the back of my mind went, Hey, dummy. He experienced bonafide racism. He experienced the Klan on horseback. He experienced seeing his friends being lynched, and you think you are gonna school him on racism. So I guess maybe that was the, uh, the start of my more conservative journey, because I, I stopped calling everything racist immediately after that. But, um, yeah, that was, that’s kind of just my family background and history and, and I guess how I got to where I am today,

Sevan Matossian (16:08):

And it has been completely cheapened the term. E e every, every e everything. I mean, I mean, I saw you yesterday working out, um, uh, doing white supremacist, uh, shit, <laugh>. I saw you doing, I saw you doing bar dips. You know, that same newspaper, the New York Times also posted a couple days ago, uh, in their op-ed that, um, you should mate with shorter guys to help the environment because, uh, your kids will then consume less resources. Did you see that?

Zeek Arkham (16:38):

I didn’t, but I did read the article about, uh, the white supremacist roots Yeah. Of, of working out in fitness and exercise, and everything was speculation. There were no real facts in there. Everything was, of course, you know, everything was, of course, all you’re doing is oppressing this and oppressing that completely woke article. I, I think I got about three quarters through it before I just, I couldn’t take it anymore. And I was like, this is so dumb. And I feel my brain cells dying just reading this article.

Sevan Matossian (17:07):

We, so two, two things I’d like to add to there. Who cares if, uh, Hitler invented working out? Who cares? And of course, people who are work out are gonna be more conservative, because one of the tenets of being more conservative is personal accountability and personal responsibility, which in which in the end, helps everyone around you because you can help more people and you’re less reliant on other people. The most helpful people in the world are the healthy fit people. I’ve never seen an obese, um, uh, person help someone across the street. I’ve never seen an obese person walk up and help some lady put, uh, old lady put groceries into her, uh, the back of her, uh, car. I’ve never seen an ob obese person save a, a baby from a burning building. It, it is, it is complete insanity. I, I had a guest on, uh, Zeke, uh, um, named Sam Apple.

(17:56):

He was the author of a book, um, um, I, I forget the name of it, but it was about Otto Warburg. And Otto Warburg was a homosexual Jew living in Nazi Germany in the forties. He won two Nobel prizes. He was the father of photosynthesis, and he was on the cusp of curing cancer. And Hitler was terrified of getting cancer. One of his goals was when he took over Ukraine. Oh, uh, ravenous. Yes. The reason why they called the poke ravenous is he’s the one who discovered that cancer cells consume sugar at a ravenous rate. And still to this day, we inject sugar into people’s blood. And if we see a part of their body that’s consumed, the cells are consuming a lot of sugar. That’s where we know the cancer is. Well, are, are we gonna, are we gonna throw out all of this man’s research because it was funded by Hitler? I mean, it’s just fucking, everyone knows Hitler was a despicable man, but we, we, who cares? I, I, by the way, obviously fitness is, doesn’t have its roots in white supremacy, but even if it did, who gave a fuck? Like, that’s not the, uh, it it’s totally misleading. It, it,

Zeek Arkham (18:59):

It’s, well, well, I mean, Volkswagen is still a car company, a very popular car company,

Sevan Matossian (19:05):

And we know their roots.

Zeek Arkham (19:06):

Yeah. People aren’t apologizing for buying Volkswagens. So

Sevan Matossian (19:10):

<laugh>, ibm, ibm, uh, was the company used to, uh, you know, collect and categorize the Jews before you could, before you whack them? Yeah, absolutely.

Zeek Arkham (19:18):

Yeah. So, I mean, you know, using, using, uh, Godwin’s law to try to demonize fitness. Now I’m also seeing how, how, you know, more obese people are saying that obesity and racism are, are paired together. I saw an article about that the other day. You know, you can’t call someone of

Sevan Matossian (19:37):

Obesity. Lots of articles now on that.

Zeek Arkham (19:39):

Yeah. And it, and it’s like, why, why is there this movement now to accept fat people? Why is there this movement now where you have to love fat people? You know, if you look at, uh, this chick Lizzo, and you are, and you are not, you know, falling in love with her beauty, you are, you are somehow a bigot now, you know, you don’t have a, a personal preference now anymore. You have to say, fat people are beautiful. I disagree. You know, there, there’s, there’s, there’s so many health complications with being fat. Oh, yeah. There she goes, <laugh>, there’s so many health complications with being fat. Why aren’t we addressing this? Why

Sevan Matossian (20:17):

Aren’t we addressing, you know, she’s on medication, by the way. I, I, there are some fat girls that, um, uh, are very appealing, but, uh, in, in my opinion. But that being said, they’re, they’re absolutely unhealthy to, to the tea. Yeah. I mean, she’s clearly on medication. I guarantee you she takes pills every morning.

Zeek Arkham (20:37):

Oh, probably. But again, if, if you’re not declaring her beauty and saying how wonderful she is, and even saying that she’s healthy, you’re a bigot. Like, how do we get, get here?

Sevan Matossian (20:48):

Um, there was this, when, when that term systemic racism was going around, there was a lot of people pushing back saying, there’s no such thing as systemic racism. There’s no such thing as systemic racism. And I wanna show you, uh, what I think is systemic racism. This is c n n reporting. Healthy teenager took precautions, died suddenly of Covid 19. This boy is so fat that his ears are pushed back into his head. He’s probably a, uh, 200 pounds overweight. And I think this is, I think this is systemic racism because it’s signaling people with melanated skin that being obese is okay. And, and, and it’s fu the irony is there is, is the systemic racism, is the, is is coming from the people who say they’re systemic racism, just to say they’re systemic racism. That, and, and it’s the paradox of what I’m saying is making systemic racism real. Did you kind of feel where I’m going? It’s, it’s a, it’s a bit of a brain twister. Healthy teenager who took precautions, died suddenly of covid 19. There’s nothing healthy about him. Not one thing. He was gonna die next week of, uh, a heart attack. Anyway.

Zeek Arkham (21:59):

Well, I, I, I’ve, I’ve always said, uh, if, if, if I ever wanna experience true racism, I’ll simply tell a white liberal that I’m a black conservative, and they will be way more racist to me than, than anything, you know, just even though on my Twitter page, uh, and, and Xavier said the exact same thing, I get dms daily of someone calling me the N word or calling me a coon, or calling me an Uncle Tom, just because of my, my view. Right. Daily, daily. E either, either mi either IDMs, or they’ll, they’ll put it in the comments somewhere. But, you know, and I’ve, and I’ve always said, you know, you’ve got people like Joe Biden who says something racist al almost on a weekly basis.

Sevan Matossian (22:45):

Yes. Uh, yes, <laugh>. Yes, he does. How come they don’t see that?

Zeek Arkham (22:51):

Well, that was that. I was gonna say that. Like, you know, they excuse his racism and they excuse, you know, all the stuff he says, and, but, but, and then you’ve got me calling it out. Yeah. But, but I’m the coon, I’m the uncle Tom. You know, I, I’m the one that Harriet Tubman with is shot. Meanwhile, I’m saying, listen, this is racist. He, he’s saying this, he’s saying the quiet parts out loud. Like I said, in this post, he’s not, he’s not even hiding it anymore. None of ’em are, you know, when you, when you’ve got, you know, white liberals that go around going, oh, you know, black people, they can’t get id, you know, they can’t, you know, like Joe, or like Joe Biden said, they’re not smart enough to be able to, to use the computer the right way. I’m calling this out <laugh>, you know, but, but it’s excused by quote unquote black leaders just because they think he’s gonna do something for them.

(23:44):

You know, know, we’re, we’re, we’re approaching a hundred billion that we’ve given, excuse me, that he’s given Ukraine now. He hasn’t done a thing for any black community. B l m hasn’t done a thing for any black community yet. You’ve got these quote unquote black leaders who continue to support both of these. They support Biden, they support B l m. Why? But that’s, you know, that’s why I’m saying it makes me kind of sad because there’s so much disinformation and people want to keep themselves asleep. You know, everybody wants to say, oh, I’m woke. No, you’re not woke. You are asleep. You’re putting your head down, and you are willfully ignorant. And that’s the biggest tragedy of it all.

Sevan Matossian (24:24):

Um, I, I was raised in the Bay Area, and the, the thing is, what the Democrats here tell themselves is, is that they’re being nice. So, and they, and they couch it, and that they’re being nice and that they’re being helpful. Oh, these poor, uh, Latinos, they need our help. Um, we need to, in, in these poor melanated people, they need our help, and we need affirmative action. So more of them can get into college. Now, let’s say that were true. Don’t call it the, the mistake is that they call it affirmative action. Be like, Hey, we’re gonna be racist. We’re gonna take some seats away from the white people, and we’re gonna save them for people with darker skin. Like, at, at least it would be honest, and we could all make a fair opinion, but instead they couch it all and they’re being nice.

(25:12):

The same thing is true with the gender affirmation. Oh, this seven year old wants to cut off his penis. Let, let’s do the, let’s give them what they want. There’s no contextualizing, there’s no risk assessment. Nothing, nothing is being put in, in, in place to, uh, to be honest about what’s going on. I, I, I don’t know that I really do think that’s what the Democrats think be being that I was raised with those people, they think that they’re being nice, and the second you call them out on their being nice is being racist, um, they become militant. They just go on the attack.

Zeek Arkham (25:47):

Well, I’ve, I’ve said that, you know, listen, I, I grew up in a one bedroom apartment in the middle of a crime-ridden neighborhood.

Sevan Matossian (25:55):

Siblings.

Zeek Arkham (25:56):

Yeah. I had two younger brothers. And, um, you know, it was basically my mom doing everything because my father decided that, uh, fatherhood was a, was a part-time job at best. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>. So my mom, uh, uh, had to work, you know, while she was still trying to take care of us and go to school and hold down a, uh, a full-time job, still came home and took care of us and, and tried to as best she could to try to move us outta that neighborhood. Um, I went from that to owning my own home, having my own family. Uh, you know, my, my daughter goes to a school where she’s, she’s learning how to read better than I ever did growing up. So there’s progress. There’s a lot of forward progress going on. I don’t need anyone’s help. I don’t need anyone to treat me like I’m their pet.

(26:45):

I don’t need anyone to look at me and feel sorry for me or my circumstances, or what I went through, or how I grew up. I’m taking care of it on my own. Uh, you know, Frederick Douglass was one of the first people to say, let black folks stand on their own. You don’t have to help them out. You don’t have to treat them like pets. And if they, and if black folk fall, let them fall, but let them get back up. Also, if Frederick Douglass was saying this back in the 18 hundreds, why do we have woke liberals now saying, oh, I have to help them. We have to help them. We have to use our white privilege to help them. No. Leave black folk alone. Let black folks stand on their own. You know, my, I have a seven year old daughter. She

Sevan Matossian (27:30):

Has congratulations.

Zeek Arkham (27:31):

Thank you. <laugh>. She’s seven going on 12. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>. But, uh, she, she doesn’t even really know what a penis is yet. All she knows is she plays with her friends. You know, they, they run around and, and they have fun with each other. They’re not thinking sexually, it’s all adults putting us on children.

Sevan Matossian (27:50):

Hundred percent.

Zeek Arkham (27:51):

It’s, it’s all adults dragging them. So dragging them, no pun intended to drag shows. Yep. And, and having drag drag queens gyrate in front of children. You know, when, when did we come to a point where now drag queens are, are forcing themselves on children. They’re saying, you have to accept this. Why do we have a drag show story hour, you know, directly targeted towards small children. They’re not doing this for teenagers, they’re doing this for small children. The indoctrination and the grooming, cause I say it grooming, the grooming is happening. And unless we fight back against this as parents, as adults, as conservatives, it’s going to get much worse.

Sevan Matossian (28:35):

It’s, it’s, and it’s a misnomer. Uh, two things. Going back to what you were saying at first, the problem isn’t so much that people are trying to help, uh, black people. It’s that they’re not helping them. You’re hurting them. It’s a, it’s a, it’s a misnomer. You’re giving, uh, you know, uh, San Francisco has universal basic income for single islander women, uh, uh, single black women and transgender people, meaning they just get a paycheck no matter what. Wow. They’re, they’re part of a new program. Yeah. They’re not, you’re not helping anyone do that with anything. By giving them, uh, a steady income from the government. All you’ve done is, is make them reliant on the government and not have ambition on their own.

Zeek Arkham (29:14):

Well, uh, bill de Blassio, the, the absolute genius that he is Sorry

Sevan Matossian (29:20):

For what? A horrible manm. What a horrible man. Horrible

Zeek Arkham (29:23):

Man. Horrible man. I, I could go on and on about him.

Sevan Matossian (29:26):

The burger fries thing was insane, by the way, <laugh>,

Zeek Arkham (29:29):

That

Sevan Matossian (29:29):

Was so burger fries thing was insane.

Zeek Arkham (29:32):

That was so cringey. And, and I don’t know who talked him into that, but they, they need to be fired and banned from ever having any kind of consulting job ever again. But, uh, he instituted something. We have a school here in New York, uh, Stuyvesant High School, which is a, which is a very elite school. It, it’s city owned, but it is one of the most elite schools. It’s probably the most elite school in the city. And he instituted a program because high.
