Anita Rufus Show - May 9, 2020, Hour 2

When did public health become partisan? Anita explores how we got to where the idea that "we are all in this together" became a replay of the "culture wars," with protesters claiming they have the right to die rather than have to follow guidelines to protect others. If, as the President says, we are all "warriors," then should we feel we are being patriotic in sacrificing ourselves to revive the economy so the President can be re-elected?

About the Podcast

Anita Rufus Show
The Lovable Liberal on Current Events... because you won't know if you don't listen!
On radio and online since the early-1990s as the Lovable Liberal, Anita Rufus is an award-winning talk show host who separates policy from politics. She leads a provocative dialogue about the issues making headlines with a viewpoint rarely presented in traditional talk radio every Sunday. Politics is the art of getting things done through people over whom you have no direct control. Anita believes that when we can all understand what an issue is about, and can separate the policy from the politics, we can then have at least the possibility of a reasonable outcome.

Raised in Southern California, Rufus is a J.D. legal scholar, M.A. educator, and has been involved for over 50 years in civil rights, women’s rights, and all public issues relating to equal treatment and protection of constitutional rights. Her past experience includes being corporate executive, non-profit leader, political activist, columnist, Congressional candidate, and mother/sister/daughter/wife.
