LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:
Kody Fairfield, the Libertarian Republic’s Editor-in-Chief, recently sat down with TV and radio host Jesse Lee Peterson to discuss race relations, as well as Peterson’s upcoming appearance at Politicon, July 29-30th in Pasadena, California.
WHO IS JESSE LEE PETERSON?
Peterson has been called the most courageous, outspoken critic of the “civil rights” establishment in America today. Peterson was raised without his father, on a plantation near Tuskegee, Alabama during the Jim Crow era, and has lived during a dark part of American history, which few have experienced. After his spiritual transformation, Peterson founded BOND, a nationally recognized nonprofit organization dedicated to “Rebuilding the Family by Rebuilding the Man.” He’s a radio and TV talk show host, speaker, and the author of SCAM: How the Black Leadership Exploits Black America, and From Rage to Responsibility. His latest book is “The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame, and Victimhood.” Peterson writes a weekly column for WND.com and appears as a media commentator on Fox News Channel, CNN, and other national TV and radio networks.

Peterson can be seen at Politicon, in Pasadena, CA on July 29-30th, 2017. He will be appearing on the three panels listed below.
