Sevan Matossian (00:00):
There’s a bunch of topics, bam. Word, live.
Lewis Brackpool (00:04):
Sevan Matossian (00:05):
I want to, if you don’t, so there’s a bunch of topics I wanna ask you about. Mm. Um, this morning, uh, I wanna ask you about, we wanna talk about W h o I wanna talk about your, uh, piece that you talked about, about the titan as a distraction. Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>, because people always say that, um, this, this news piece was a distraction for this one. And it’s starting to become even in my own head, like, Hey, people are always saying that. What, what does that mean? I wanna talk about kids schools. I wanna talk about the riots in France. I wanna talk about Jack Dorsey.
Lewis Brackpool (00:34):
Sevan Matossian (00:36):
But before we start, there’s something I want to show you. Um, do you, are you on a computer screen?
Lewis Brackpool (00:44):
I am, yes. Okay,
Sevan Matossian (00:45):
Cool. Our connection is great this morning.
Lewis Brackpool (00:48):
Oh, that’s good. <laugh> always helps.
Sevan Matossian (00:51):
Uh, for anyone who doesn’t know, uh, um, you’re gonna have to do your own investigating. But, uh, Louis Brackpool, I found him through, uh, rebel News. Are you with Grit News now?
Lewis Brackpool (01:00):
Yes. That’s my own company now. Oh. Which is great. Which is cool.
Sevan Matossian (01:04):
Awesome. Okay. That’s right. And we talked about that last time. You’ll soon find out that my memory is horrible.
Lewis Brackpool (01:09):
Sevan Matossian (01:10):
Okay. The, the pe the the, um, the grit news piece on W H O is, uh, fantastic, by the way. Thank you. Thank you. W the reason why I got kicked off of YouTube for some weird reason, YouTube follows w h o guidelines when it comes to talking about covid.
Lewis Brackpool (01:27):
No way. And because,
Sevan Matossian (01:28):
Because I said that you could use exercise and nutrition as the best way to prevent yourself from getting, um, uh, gonorrhea, uh, <laugh>. I was kicked off of YouTube for a week, which is nuts
Lewis Brackpool (01:44):
For, was it gonorrhea? That’s not a
Sevan Matossian (01:45):
Joke. No, no, it wasn’t gonorrhea, it was the
Lewis Brackpool (01:48):
Other thing. Right. Okay. <laugh>,
Sevan Matossian (01:49):
The thing that, it’s actually, actually, uh, I, I would argue that exercise and, um, good nutrition will actually increase your chances of getting gonorrhea, believe it or not really? Well, you’re more likely to get fucked by someone. Someone someone’s gonna want to, uh, <laugh>. Someone’s gonna wanna see you naked and sleep with
Lewis Brackpool (02:06):
You. I swear it’s, I swear it’s so early where you are, dude. <laugh>.
Sevan Matossian (02:11):
Uh, but anyway, uh, so, you know, the other thing, so, um, I thought Trump got rid of W H O, he needs to, yeah. Anyway, we’ll get to that in a second. I wanna show you something just Absolutely. I, I think this is a museum quality specimen of what’s going on with the insanity in the world right now. Hmm. So, someone sent me this. The, the person who sent me this hates my guts. Right. They fucking hate me. Right. And they said, Hey, look at, these are your people. And if you look at this, look, this post has 22,280 likes and Right. Um, and this, um, this account has 12,000 followers. And I’ll go back and show you this account. This is some Irish guy that just, um, who’s a, a communist fascist, totalitarian who, who thinks he’s a peace-loving hippie. Right. I’ll show you his account in a second.
But that’s a, that’s the typical confusion, right? There’s these people that are like, um, peace and love, but mm-hmm. <affirmative> until, like, you say something like, Hey, we shouldn’t use race as a determinant for people to get into college, then they want to kill you. Right? Right. It’s bizarre, right? Mm-hmm. <affirmative>, or if you say, Hey, um, I think we should keep pornography outta school. They, they claim you’re a book banner, and you’re like, no, no, I love pornography. Let’s just keep it over in the seven 11 in the liquor store, the kids and ass, and the, and the anal, anal eating, whatever that stuff’s called, a t m, it’s called Asto Mouth <laugh>. That, that in the liquor store behind the, uh, Indian guy, the Abu, can you get me the Asto mouth issue of, uh, hustler? Thank you. Not, uh, Mrs. Jensen. Um, uh, I’m seven years old.
What is, what does that mean? A t m It’s, it’s like, just, we just so bad. Okay. So they hate us. They think that we’re, they, they think we hate to party or that we’re book banners, but we just, we just think every, anyway, so this is at some sort of, uh, Republican convention thing. And, and I want you to, I’m gonna play this for you a couple times, and, and it’s so interesting how I took it versus how all of these people took it who are saying, who wait till you wait till you see this. This is just absolutely insane. Okay, here we go.
Speaker 3 (04:32):
Discovering as parents and conservatives is, wait a second, education really is evangelism. So if you don’t control education, you cannot control the future. And, and, and Stalin knew that. Mal knew that. Right. Hitler knew that. We have to get that back.
Sevan Matossian (04:49):
Okay. So this guy, so what I bring to this, when I watch this is I know that 87% of all teachers are liberals. And I know that the liberal ideology is to, uh, ban free speech to allow the government to interfere with free speech with the media. That’s mm-hmm. That is a cornerstone for fascism, totalitarianism, and communism. Right. They have to control the media. Mm-hmm. It’s like mm-hmm. It’s, it’s part and parcel with that mindset. And, and you have to control the education that was Hitler’s whole thing. Separate the kids from the, from the parents. Right. And so what he’s saying is he’s giving three examples. When I hear this of horrific people who’ve done that in the past, and he’s comparing it to what the liberals are doing now. Yeah. They’re basically telling kids it’s okay to masturbate at six years old. It’s okay to, um, uh, play the victim to get attention even, or play the oppressed, even if it means like the oppressed being the opposite sex. And, and, and he’s using the, the liberals as the example. But, and lemme play a little bit more
Speaker 3 (05:53):
For conservative values, you know, what we’re discovering as parents, and,
Sevan Matossian (05:57):
Okay. So the person who sent this to me is claiming that this guy is, is saying out loud that Republicans, which I’m not a Republican, but he, what he’s saying is, is that Republicans want to be like Mao and Hitler and Stalin. That’s, and, and thousands of people are reading it like that. So I went back to the original piece just to make sure I’m, I’m hearing it right.
Lewis Brackpool (06:23):
Yeah. Play that again. Do you mind if we play that again?
Sevan Matossian (06:26):
No, no. I’ll play it again. Yeah. It’s, I’m glad I got your attention. This is, and this, the reason why this is museum quality specimen is this is where the problem is. Those people, they’re riding with the Hitler Posse, but they’re pointing at the other’s team saying they’re the Hitler Posse. They don’t realize, no, it’s your team that used the F B I to hide the Bunter, uh, bunter, the Hunter laptop Biden story. It’s your team that took, made it so the largest amount of businesses closed during the Covid pandemic. Mm-hmm. And you wouldn’t let Americans work. It’s your business. It’s your team that covered kids’ mouths. It’s your team that forces kids to take drugs made by pharma mm-hmm. To go to school. Mm-hmm. And yet it’s, it’s fucking mind boggling to me. Okay. Here we go.
Speaker 3 (07:12):
Does wait a second. Education really is evangelism. So if you don’t control education, you cannot control the future. And, and, and Stalin knew that. Mal knew that. Right. Hitler knew that. We have to get that back for conservative value.
Sevan Matossian (07:28):
So what those people are hearing is, is that that guy is saying that he wants to be like Mao. Yeah.
Lewis Brackpool (07:33):
They’ve taken it and
Sevan Matossian (07:34):
Lewis Brackpool (07:35):
Yeah. They’ve taken that completely out of context. Completely. They’re saying we need to get, we need to get it back to normal, is what he’s saying. Yes. We need to, we need to reclaim it back from the maoists he’s saying right now.
Sevan Matossian (07:48):
Yeah. He’s saying right now it is like that. Yeah. And that the Democrats know that, and that the Republicans are, because the Republicans are trying to talk logic. They’re fucking, yeah. And the liberals are talking emotion, and emotion is trumping logic.
Lewis Brackpool (08:00):
Mm-hmm. Yeah. That I took that as, as the educational system has, has slipped so far to one side and has gone to the point of evangelism, um, whether it be through critical race theory, whether it be through lots of different ideologies. And he’s saying that, that because it’s under this, uh, political ide ideolog ideological control, that they need to take that back. They need to say, they need to separate it again. They need to say, no, hang on a minute. It’s more of the parents’. Right. As opposed to the state. That that’s what I took from that. Uh, I don’t see him saying, we need to get back more like Hitler, or we need to get back more like Maui Mao or, or Stalin. I didn’t, I didn’t hear that at all. So this gives a But
Sevan Matossian (08:45):
Brother, that’s how, that’s how, look at, I, I cannot believe, um, everyone here is taking, it’s called, uh, these
Lewis Brackpool (08:54):
People, this is collective thinking now. ’cause you say one thing and you, and you frame it in one way without listening to the context. Like, really what I wanna do is I wanna hear the full interview. Um, and then you’ll get a, then you’ll get a very, very good idea. Um,
Sevan Matossian (09:11):
Let, let me, let me read this comment to you. This is from Linda Seko sighting Stalin and Hitler’s models of leadership on the necessity of controlling the education system. Is no mistake. He’s stating unequivocally that the g o P is now pro authoritarian. He said the exact opposite of
Lewis Brackpool (09:30):
What she saying. Yeah. Said the opposite. Yeah. <laugh>.
Sevan Matossian (09:33):
And that has 3000 likes.
Lewis Brackpool (09:36):
Yeah. People, ’cause when he said, we need to get this back, he, they, they took that as, oh, we need to get this back to the Stalin days or the Hitler days, when really he was saying, we need to get this back to normal <laugh>. We need to revert, we need to reclaim it. That’s <laugh>.
Sevan Matossian (09:54):
And then listen to this.
Lewis Brackpool (09:55):
Sevan Matossian (09:55):
Did you all get that? They’re admitting the evangelicals want control of the people. This must stop. Uh, that’s authoritarianism. It’s like, no, really, we’re already in authoritarianism. Yeah.
Lewis Brackpool (10:06):
<laugh>, we’re merging the corporations with the big state. So that is the definition of fascism. If you want to go through the, the history book. So I’ve not seen them. I see them Liberals talk about <laugh>, the, the chaos that’s insuring with that. That’s,
Sevan Matossian (10:24):
We, we, a law just passed in California that it’s child abuse. If you don’t, um, uh, uh, accept your, your, if you don’t follow along and listen to your child about their gender affirming needs.
Lewis Brackpool (10:34):
Yes. I saw that nuts. Uh,
Sevan Matossian (10:37):
Excuse me. That’s, that’s about as crazy as it gets Yeah. That the, the state can take your child away because you won’t let your boy turn into a girl. A stalling Ma Hitler conservative value says it all. Look how he read it. Oh my. Another one
Lewis Brackpool (10:50):
That’s so bad. It’s the power of context. The power of context and social media and someone wanting to frame something in a certain way for political gain is, it’s, it’s incredible how, um, how many people you can convince.
Sevan Matossian (11:04):
But Lewis, what’s even crazier than it’s taken outta context and that it’s being misunderstood, is that they, these people don’t realize it’s them <laugh>. Do you know what I
Lewis Brackpool (11:16):
Mean? It’s a reflection of them. <laugh>.
Sevan Matossian (11:18):
They’re the ones who want my kids to take the 72 injections required to make it to the sixth grade at the local school here by law, or else my kids can’t attend. Yeah. That which they don’t attend. But,
Lewis Brackpool (11:34):
Oh, dude, I I know. It’s like I said,
Sevan Matossian (11:36):
We’re not even talking power. We’re not even talking. Yeah.
Lewis Brackpool (11:39):
Yeah. This is polarization. This is,
Sevan Matossian (11:43):
And what’s crazy is we can see them and we can see ourselves, but they can’t see. They can’t, they, they only see, they only see, they don’t see anything. They don’t see themselves or us. Where are they? They’re trapped. I always call that trapped in your head. They’re trapped between their ears. Where are they? A
Lewis Brackpool (12:02):
Hundred percent. 91,000 likes. That’s, that’s pretty insane.
Sevan Matossian (12:08):
This guy is insane. Dude. This Irish dude has, uh, he has, he, he, him, he him.
Lewis Brackpool (12:15):
Sevan Matossian (12:18):
Um, okay. He, he’s quoting the, the Buddha. This too shall pass. Okay. He’s a mental health advocate. I mean that right away. And, and he’s, uh, he’s a, he’s just made his whole, um, Instagram account hating on the Right.
Lewis Brackpool (12:32):
Right. Interesting. They’re extreme right wing nuts is what I see from that. And it’s just DeSantis.
Sevan Matossian (12:41):
Well, they’re extreme left wing nuts.
Lewis Brackpool (12:42):
Interesting. Yeah. This is the, do you know what? It’s just the classic polarization of the internet. Um, embed yourself into one, uh, tribe and just never, ever consolidate with the other side, quote unquote. Um, you know, I wonder, I wonder if this person would act like that in like, in like a bar or something. You go, actually, you know, I quite like Trump. Trump’s Trump’s actually. All right. Blah, blah, blah. Do you think he just gets up and just
Sevan Matossian (13:12):
<laugh> stop? Yeah. Yeah. He, yeah. He, he, um,
Lewis Brackpool (13:18):
Sevan Matossian (13:19):
I was at a coffee shop here in, um, in Santa Cruz during the last election, and a man at the table next to me, uh, it’s, it’s a coffee shop where I was the youngest person there. It’s all old people. I call it the geriatric cafe. Like 40 old people on the patio. And, uh, and, and, uh, someone mentioned Trump. These three men were talking and they mentioned Trump. And a tract of older woman, probably like seven year old, beautiful, thick, gray-haired woman, looked right, perfectly sane to me. Jumps up and comes over and yells at the men. You will not mention Trump. I mean, and, and I live in, like, I live in the hive, in the liberal hive. And, uh, I live like in one of the virtue capital, capital, uh, virtue signaling capitals of the world. And she jumps up and starts yelling at him. And the guy’s, like, we weren’t even saying anything nice about him. She’s like, I don’t care. And then the owner had to come out and make this declaration. Listen, this is United States America. No politics on the patio people. I’m like, holy shit.
Lewis Brackpool (14:13):
I’m like, that’s so bad. Surely it’s United States of America. You’re allowed to say what you like as long as there’s no incitement. Like surely that’s the correct answer.
Sevan Matossian (14:25):
The word Trump triggers people.
Lewis Brackpool (14:27):
I don’t, I don’t understand why. I mean, I get it. Pe some people like find him very divisive over the past, like how many, however many years. Some people say he is brash. I understand. Um, but, you know, 2016 when I was watching his, uh, triumph into the elections, you know, the polls came out and said, no, he’s got no chance. He’s got absolutely no chance. Same with Brexit. Oh, it’s got no chance of passing. And then when it happened, it was, it was this big shock and people didn’t know what to do. People just like sort of scrambling around and it was like, okay, well these next four years, or these next three and a half years, it’s gonna be really interesting.
Sevan Matossian (15:08):
B Brexit was awesome. Brexit was awesome. <laugh>
Lewis Brackpool (15:12):
I’ll tell you what, um, the problem is with Brexit, I found because I voted leave, um, I found that when you have people who in Westminster who love the European Union and voted remain, but then are tasked with, right. You have to leave, you have to leave the European Union, they sort of dangle one foot in and dangle one foot out. And that’s the mess that they’ve created now because of b Brexit. Oh. Oh. So it’s not been properly done. And, uh, there’s even talks about when the next government will come in. ’cause they’ll come in labor with this, uh, ki starer bloke when they come in. Uh, there’s, there’s talk about them potentially rejoining or campaigning to rejoin, which is gonna make even more of a mess. Right. So, you know, it is, it is a continuous cycle of bullshit, really. But, uh, yeah. I’ll voted leave. I’ll do it again. <laugh>.
Sevan Matossian (16:07):
It’s, it’s funny, back then I didn’t even, I didn’t even realize the impact of it being just more one world order shit.
Lewis Brackpool (16:13):
Sevan Matossian (16:14):
The European Union for sure.
Lewis Brackpool (16:15):
Yeah. I mean, the idea of a, of unelected bureaucrats dictating the laws of a sovereign nation, supposed sovereign nation is just, is crazy to me. Um,
Sevan Matossian (16:27):
Explain what you mean by that, because, um, what are you talking about? Like, the W h O is unelected and yet they want to control, or what do you mean? That’s also part of the European Union, that type of unelected people make the rules.
Lewis Brackpool (16:38):
Yeah. They’re all in bed with each other. I mean, the European Union, a lot of the, the people at the top, they’re all unelected. It’s all just sort of rubbing shoulders, get to the top. That’s it. Um, so, so they’re not, they’ve not been on a ballot paper as such where the, the people vote them in. Um, so you only have the meps that sort of represent that party that, that gets the vote in. Um, but the people at the top know, so then you’ve got these people who nobody have even heard of in England or, or Britain dictating laws. So there was this guy, right, this, this, um, jihadist from England Right. Committed these awful crimes. And they were like, okay, we wanna <crosstalk> this. The
Sevan Matossian (17:21):
Guy who was cutting people’s heads off in public,
Lewis Brackpool (17:23):
Uh, I think his name is Abu Hamza, his, his name is, uh, he had a, he had a claw as well. He had like a hook for a hand. So a proper bad guy. Um,
Sevan Matossian (17:33):
Hamza Abu Hamza Almari.
Lewis Brackpool (17:36):
I think that’s it. Yeah. I think that’s how you say it. Um, and so we wanted to, to deport him. And, uh, we said, look, this guy’s awful. Like, you know, we can’t have him here. And you have to go through a process with, with deportation. Uh, yeah. That’s the guy. That’s the
Sevan Matossian (17:54):
Guy. His nickname was Captain Hook, <laugh>,
Lewis Brackpool (17:58):
Proper bad guy. And, um, we were like, right, well, we need to, we need to get rid of him. And, um, the EU blocked it. And that was a big wake up call for a lot of people. And it was like, hang on a minute. How, how do you get to dictate what we are to do as a sovereign nation? And that sort of woke a lot of people up. Woke me out. I
Sevan Matossian (18:18):
Wanna kick someone outta my house. Yeah. And the mayor comes and says, no, you can’t kick him outta your house.
Lewis Brackpool (18:23):
Can’t do that. And take your locks off as well whilst you’re at it. Oh, fucking keep your door open, <laugh>.
Sevan Matossian (18:29):
Lewis Brackpool (18:30):
Yeah. So that was a big sort of wake up call. And we were like, that’s not right. <laugh>. Something needs to be done about that. So, um, it was mostly about law. It was mostly about borders. But as we know, that’s not really done much. Um, but, uh, yeah, the, the EU basically had their, had their final say and they blocked it. They said, no, you can’t do that. It’s against human rights.
Sevan Matossian (18:56):
Where’s the, where’s EU located? Louis? Where’s, where’s their headquarters?
Lewis Brackpool (19:00):
Brussels. Sorry, I say that. I was there the other day. So Brussels <laugh>.
Sevan Matossian (19:05):
And it’s, and it’s shitloads of, um, uh, it’s just more layers of bureaucracy. Yeah. More of just tax dollars, money going to just employing people for doing nothing. They’re the, yeah. When I think of politicians, I just think of ’em as part of the welfare system. It’s a popularity contest to see who can get a check.
Lewis Brackpool (19:21):
A hundred percent. And I’ll tell you what, man, when I went there the other day, it was the first time going there. It is a weird place. Like you can tell it’s a bubble within a bubble. Like, they just have, they’re just in their own. They’re in their own world. And even the architecture inside and the artwork that’s surrounding the building, like, it’s all abstract and weird. And obviously the Ukraine flag is just plastered everywhere.
Sevan Matossian (19:45):
Lewis Brackpool (19:46):
Really? Yeah. So it’s all that. And you’ve got outside, there’s like, um, uh, oh, I’m seeing if I can see it in the, uh, in this, but there’s like, it’s like a dome part, like outside and around. It is like all this sort of mask propaganda. And it’s like kids with masks on. Oh. Saying health is first still. Yeah. Still still. And I’m looking at it and I’m going, these guys are in their own fucking world. Like, this is nuts. And, um,
Sevan Matossian (20:15):
Being European is kind of weird, isn’t it? Is is being European weird <laugh>?
Lewis Brackpool (20:21):
Um, I, I dunno how to answer that. ’cause I don’t know anything else. So, <laugh>,
Sevan Matossian (20:26):
Have you been over here to the States?
Lewis Brackpool (20:28):
I have few times. Yeah. Does it? I love
Sevan Matossian (20:30):
It there. Does it? You do. Where did you go?
Lewis Brackpool (20:33):
I’ve been, I’ve been to the roughest and the nicest. I’ve been to Oakland, I’ve been to New York. Uh, I’ve been to Las Vegas. Um, I’ve been to Florida. Um, I’ve been to Tampa. I’ve been to, gosh, really testing me now.
Sevan Matossian (20:50):
Um, have you been to the middle anywhere, Louis?
Lewis Brackpool (20:53):
No, I’d love to go. My, my ultimate place to go in the United States is Texas. That’s my ultimate.
Sevan Matossian (21:00):
The East Coast is kind of weird. Like, Europe is weird. There’s just, it doesn’t feel free like the west Coast or like the center of the country. ’cause it, it, at least when I was a kid, when I would go there, all their roads are like toll roads. Right. So even as a, even for the last 30 or 40 years, when you move around, you’re always being, you’re always having to stop and pay mm-hmm. <affirmative>. And there is a, a sort of this, um, uh, I don’t know what it, it just feels like you’re working inside of an infrastructure. Like how you Yeah. Like how I picture like these little tiny European countries, like when I hear people or, or even New Zealand, when I hear people talk who live in New Zealand, I’m like, oh, you don’t really know what freedom is <laugh> you, you’re stuck on this little island and you kind of, you don’t, you’re not, you don’t experience the vastness of, uh,
Lewis Brackpool (21:48):
That’s, that’s the strange thing that I find when I go to America or Canada especially. Yeah. There’s so much space. There’s so much open field, and I, I get it. Like, we’ve got fields here, but it’s a little bit different. Um, there’s spacing within the country is just so vastly different. And then you, like, I went away for like a week to, to Canada, and there was so much space, and it’s the same in the us. I came home and I felt cramped. It was really weird. Like everything’s all sort of built together, really close together. Mm-hmm. <affirmative> like, where I live in this, in this kind of village slash town, like it’s just houses next to each, like literally attached to each other. Um, and it’s, you find how weird that is. Once you’ve been to America or Canada and all the houses are completely separate and they’ve got like, like a lot of space in between each house. And even if you’re driving down like the highway or whatever, like you just see this vast open space and you’re like, wow. Like we don’t really, we have that somewhere in, in England, but it’s not, it’s not in, like, it’s not in everyday life. So you feel almost cramped. Um, I guess that’s why a lot of us like hiking over here. <laugh>.
Sevan Matossian (22:59):
Yeah. Let me, let me let, uh, some of these, uh, um, people, the EU are unelected and yet can make decisions about UK law. It’s completely undemocratic.
Lewis Brackpool (23:09):
Yeah. Correct. Yeah.
Sevan Matossian (23:11):
Uh, and that’s basically the w h o’s trying to do that also, right? Mm-hmm. <affirmative>, worldwide. Uhhuh. Um, being from California is weird.
Lewis Brackpool (23:19):
Sevan Matossian (23:20):
All right. Uh, I’m enjoying Kentucky more and more these days.
Lewis Brackpool (23:24):
Oh, I’d like to go there too. I’d like to go there too
Sevan Matossian (23:27):
Wide open. Right? Just why, uh, why? So there’s places in this country where you could just go and build a home. Uhhuh <affirmative>. And then there’s places like where I live, even though I’m in the country, I’m in California. If I built a shack in my backyard, there’s a chance someone would report me.
Lewis Brackpool (23:43):
Really? Yeah. Okay. So a lot of red tape.
Sevan Matossian (23:46):
Yeah. Yeah. So it’s just levels of, of red tape. Uh, free state of Florida. Someone like, whoa, whoa, whoas. Uh, Florida’s as free as it gets. All right. Settle down. <laugh>. Everyone’s settled.
Lewis Brackpool (23:58):
Jumping on you there. <laugh> settled down.
Sevan Matossian (24:01):
Um, UK Parliament are loaned rights every four years by the British people in an election. They should return those rights back to the uk. People undiminished instead, they gave our rights away to the eu. What, what did Yeah. Explain that to me. I’m not following that.
Lewis Brackpool (24:17):
Yeah. So it said, like it says on the tin, um, our Parliament Westminster has sold us out completely and sold us out to the eu, um, for globalist interests. Um, and that’s what we’ve been seeing for years. And, and a lot of people couldn’t see that for, for many years. But even ever since leaving the European Union, quote unquote, ’cause we technically haven’t, um, ’cause we’re still part of the E C H R and, and which is the European Court of Human Rights, um, which can still block things like deportations from criminals, things like that. Um,
Sevan Matossian (24:54):
Lewis Brackpool (24:54):
Were you back? The problem
Sevan Matossian (24:55):
Is deport that guy to, by the way, back to Egypt.
Lewis Brackpool (24:58):
I think so. I think that’s where it was. It was a long time ago. I was, yeah. Um, so it, yeah, it, it, it’s very strange. And what you’ll find in Westminster is, is
I wanna say like 98% of them just don’t represent the people’s interest. It’s their own agenda. Even though the people suppo like quote unquote elected them to that position of power. Um, and they just don’t fulfill like, the people’s needs. And that, that just goes across the board. When you have two parties, what do you do in a country that’s supposedly democratic, where you have two of the main parties, labor and conservative, quote unquote conservative, um, with both the same interests, whether it be net zero, whether it be, uh, staying with the, the W H O, whether it be, oh,
Sevan Matossian (25:50):
Climate change is real there. That’s, that’s it’s real. Yeah. So the government,
Lewis Brackpool (25:54):
Oh yeah. Net zero they love Net zero over here. Yeah. That’s like a big sort of thing. Boris Johnson, when he was in power, um, he’s put forward a thing to say that by 2030, um, petro and new petro and diesel cars are to be banned. So you cannot buy a new petro and diesel car by 2030
Sevan Matossian (26:14):
For anyone who’s getting, like, I I, I know that’s a triggering topic for people, but for anyone who, who, who is like sitting on the fence about climate change or whatnot, there’s some really simple things. You can Google, um, Google, uh, the dirtiest, um, ships in the world, and you’ll see that there are ships out on our sea that do the equivalent of, uh, of polluting that, uh, 50 million cars do in a year. So one ship does the same amount of pollution as 50 million cars in a year, and then there’s only 950 million, um, cars on planet Earth. And there’s more than 15 of these ships on our ocean. So just start, like, you can start contextualizing or putting things into a relative situation that them attacking our cars, uh, I’ll, I’ll use a different word that that’s a bias word. Attacking those. Using our cars to mitigate damage to the environment is completely absurd.
Lewis Brackpool (27:04):
Oh, it is absurd. You should look up,
Sevan Matossian (27:06):
It’s completely, it’s like, it’s like wanting to get rid of all the hair on your body and starting to use tweezers, <laugh>. It’s like, come on, come on. Like, you
Lewis Brackpool (27:14):
Should, um, you should look at, uh, I dunno if you’ve seen it, the wind turbines and the blades, they can’t, ’cause they’re made of fiberglass, I believe they can’t be recycled. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>. And they last wind turbines last like 15 to 20 years. So you can’t e they’re not, they say it’s renewable. It’s not. ’cause you can’t even, they, they have to bury them. I think there’s like graveyards and graveyards of wind turbine like blades
Sevan Matossian (27:37):
Lewis Brackpool (27:37):
Because they can’t be,
Sevan Matossian (27:39):
I drove through a part of China one time, Western China in the desert there, and I saw the biggest windmill fields that any human being’s ever fucking seen. And, but there was a graveyard for, uh, windmill parts that I saw that went on for 40 minutes. You’re right. Blades like is long. Like, as long as football fields.
Lewis Brackpool (28:00):
Yeah. It’s nuts. Just
Sevan Matossian (28:01):
As far as the eye can see dumped.
Lewis Brackpool (28:03):
Yeah, exactly. And how is as well? You look at like,
Sevan Matossian (28:07):
China’s crazy dude, China,
Lewis Brackpool (28:08):
I can imagine. I’ve never been. Do you know, I, I’d go just for like a week. Yeah. Just to like, as a journalist, just to, you know, scope the place out. Obviously I probably wouldn’t be let in, but, um, that would be great fun.
Sevan Matossian (28:22):
Uh, it’s a great cultural experiment. They’re running over there. It’s worth going and seeing. It’s very clean. The Asians are very clean. Well, I shouldn’t say all Asian, but China and Japan are clean as shit. Have you been to Japan?
Lewis Brackpool (28:32):
No. It’s, it’s my bucket list. That’s my ultimate place to go is to,
Sevan Matossian (28:36):
Their homeless camp is cleaner. Wow. Than most of our cities here. Wow. Like the homeless tents are all set up perfectly. The guys hang their shirts. It’s a trip. It’s a trip. Wow. Japanese people. Yeah. Even the crazy ones are are, yeah. It’s crazy <laugh>.
Lewis Brackpool (28:53):
Yeah. Yeah. I’ve gotta, I’ve gotta go. It’s my, it’s my ultimate, um, sort of place to go. Um, that’s on my list.
Sevan Matossian (29:00):
You think that you would be banned from China?
Lewis Brackpool (29:03):
Um, well, the reason why I’d want to go to China is just to scope out things like, uh, WeChat and, um, just their social credit score system. And do, like, I’d love to do like a documentary or like a report on, um, on that, on like the social credit system over there and just try and uncover it. Because, you know, you hear chatter online, you see like videos online. But I wanna see it. I wanna see it for myself. Yeah. You know, I’m kind of that sort of dude like where a lot of people say things and you go, okay, yeah, yeah, that’s, oh, and you hear rumors and things, but then you sort of, there’s something in me that goes, well, I wanna go there and see it. I wanna actually document it myself. So obviously I’ve just admitted this on a podcast. So <laugh>, whether, whether, um, the Chinese government, I don’t,
Sevan Matossian (29:53):
I don’t feel like that they were hiding any of that stuff.
Lewis Brackpool (29:57):
They’re not. They’re not. But to, to.
