This video clip of Bonnie Faulkner speaking is from the August 18, 2018 “Town Hall Meeting” the community elected KPFA Local Station Board “Public Comments” session in Berkeley, CA. Bonnie Faulkner is speaking against the censorship of her Guns & Butter Radio show, which she has hosted for about 17 years.

Guns and Butter has been a popular program on KPFA for about 17 years. It has reached a new and wider international audience on internet radio via NoLiesRadio. Concern is widespread about this “deep politics” show being censored by KPFA in the midst of a wave of censorship and loss of civility in these post 9/11 crime times.

To understand the current context of the censorship of Guns & Butter Radio, check out the blog linked below. Posted on August 16, 2018 at the Guns and Butter Blog. http://www.gunsandbutter.org/blog/201…

Excerpt: I received on Wednesday, August 8th, before Guns and Butter would have aired on KPFA, the following email from the General Manager”: Bonnie, KPFA will cease broadcasting “Guns and Butter” effective immediately. We’ve received an avalanche of negative calls and emails from listeners about your uncritically airing of views by a holocaust denier, climate denial and casting the Parkland mass shooting survivors as crisis actors. As steward of our airways, we can’t defend this content to our listeners. Sincerely, Quincy McCoy, General Manager KPFA; Kevin Cartwright, Program Director KPFA This was followed by the removal of the entire KPFA broadcast archives of Guns and Butter, down the memory hole. KPFA defines itself as “Free Speech Radio” and this reaction is a form of censorship. There was no discussion of these claims, nor any provision for due process or community involvement before these actions were taken. If you are as taken aback as we are, as many of our listeners have already expressed to us by email, you can have your voice heard in this matter. You can make in-person comments at the next KPFA Local Station Board Meeting this Saturday, Aug 18 at 1 pm. Bonnie Faulkner We urge everyone to go to www.gunsandbutter.org to get on the email list. If you can afford to donate or subscribe, please do that too! We very much appreciate you sharing links to these 6 short video reports on the censorship of Guns and Butter Radio, a pioneering radio show that needs your stalwart support too.

    My original message did not post. Tricia is not a former Director of Project Censored, she was a Coordinator.

    the problem is listeners that dont want to hear anything they dont already believe

    holocaust/climate deniers etc dont fit the belief system therefore have no value

    i personally want to hear views and ideas that challange all my views

    shame on kpfa

    i literally now consider kpfa to be mainstream propaganda media

    To this former 50-year resident of the Bay Area, for whom KPFA became my preferred source of news, this is a sad denouement. If noliesradio is a Pacifica affiliate, do I have to be concerned about G&B being removed from this channel as well?

    What going on now be it a public or private companies is not legal, it is a violation of the first amendment.

    Malcolm X:

    ‘The white liberal is the worst enemy to America, and the worst enemy to the black man. Let me explain what I mean by the white liberal. In America there is no such thing as Democrat or Republican anymore. In America you have liberals and conservatives. The only people living in the past who think in terms of I’m a Democrat or Republican, is the American Negro. He’s the one that runs around bragging about party affiliation. He’s the one that sticks to the Democrat or sticks to the Republican. But white people are divided into two groups, liberals and conservative. The Democrats who are conservative, vote with the Republicans who are conservative. The Democrats who are liberal vote with the Republicans that are liberal. The white liberal aren’t white people who are for independence, who are moral and ethical in their thinking. They are just a faction of white people that are jockeying for power. The same as the white conservative is a faction of white people that are jockeying for power. They are fighting each other for power and prestige, and the one that is the football in the game is the Negro, 20 million black people. A political football, a political pawn, an economic football, and economic pawn. A social football, a social pawn. The liberal elements of whites are those who have perfected the art of selling themselves to the Negro as a friend of the Negro. Getting sympathy of the Negro, getting the allegiance of the Negro, and getting the mind of the Negro. Then the Negro sides with the white liberal, and the white liberal use the Negro against the white conservative. So that anything that the Negro does is never for his own good, never for his own advancement, never for his own progress, he’s only a pawn in the hands of the white liberal. The worst enemy that the Negro have is this white man that runs around here drooling at the mouth professing to love Negros, and calling himself a liberal, and it is following these white liberals that has perpetuated problems that Negros have. If the Negro wasn’t taken, tricked, or deceived by the white liberal then Negros would get together and solve our own problems. I only cite these things to show you that in America the history of the white liberal has been nothing but a series of trickery designed to make Negros think that the white liberal was going to solve our problems. Our problems will never be solved by the white man. The only way that our problem will be solved is when the black man wakes up, clean himself up, stand on his own feet and stop begging the white man, and take immediate steps to do for ourselves the things that we have been waiting on the white man to do for us. Once we do for self then we will be able to solve our own problems’ “The white conservatives aren’t friends of the Negro either, but they at least don’t try to hide it. They are like wolves; they show their teeth in a snarl that keeps the Negro always aware of where he stands with them. But the white liberals are foxes, who also show their teeth to the Negro but pretend that they are smiling. The white liberals are more dangerous than the conservatives; they lure the Negro, and as the Negro runs from the growling wolf, he flees into the open jaws of the “smiling” fox. One is the wolf, the other is a fox. No matter what, they’ll both eat you.”
