    Remember this date 01-03-18 and the AA show # 067. I am guessing that it will not be repeated or download-able. Ron Bennington (Avowed Liberal) Vs Colin Flaherty?(Avowed Rightest) almost coming to blows. The show ended early @ 5:30 pm!

    It looks like they split the show into 2 parts and that they will cut out the confrontation in part 1 and continues the show in part 2

    Ho-lee-shit, yes!

    Just when I started liking Ron, he goes nuts. I'm about to re-watch the point, but from what I remember, Ron was trying to do Artie style quips - interuptting Colin - and Colin was not having it. Basically saing, if you don't care, you don't know what you're talking about: shut it. Ron was not going to be told to shut up.

    Then Ant gets scared and kisses rons ass the rest of the show.

    Please correct me.

    Will be watching Twitter closely.

    So Part One @ 1:02:26 is what you need to watch. I just rewatched it...



    So, Colins whole thing is about race, and how media/politicians deny any issues. that-is-why-he-is-on.

    While Colin is trying to contribute, Ron keeps saying "I don't really care" "yeah, i don't know" ... calls Colin a 'constitionalist" in which Colin is like "huh? im just a guy"'

    Colin is about to make a point about black movies, Ron goes "you get back to the black thing right away... yeah, you're right there.."

    It seems Colin had enough and chalked it up to the very denial of any issues his book is about... and says, pretty aggressively:

    Colin:"This is like case A of denial, deceit, and delusion. I'm sitting next to ya, that's you. Cause you don't know what you're talking about. But that doesn't stop you from talking? :shaking head no: I'm not one of those guys who sits there and listens to bullshit."
    Ron:"Well first of all, Don't fucking come on here like we're on the same fucking level with this. I was asked to be on this fucking show. I wouldn't be talking about race if it was up to me."
    Colin: "Cuase you don't know what your talking about"
    Ron: objecting "The fuck would I..."
    Colin: "But you're talking... If you don't know what you're talking about - why say it?"
    Ron: "I fucking made a joke, that's why anthony fucking has me here"
    Colin: "Guess I forgot to laugh"
    Ron: "Whats that?"
    Colin: Guess I forgot to laugh"
    Ron: "I dont give a fuck dude, I'm not here to be angry all the time, I"m telling Ant to go back the way he used to be
    Colin: What way was that Anthony?
    Ron: "He was one of the funniest fuckers in the country"
    Ant: "I'm still hilarious"
    :LONG Radio Silence: with Ron and Colin staring at each other.

    I am wondering what happened after that when they split the show into part 1 and part 2. My signals on my phone and my Roku dropped the show and I couldn't get back on.

    Truth be told, I am not a fan of Ron Bennington and I know Artie, Artie is a Friend of mine and Ronnie is no Artie!

    Yeah, I was very pissed off when the stream started buffering for me, then completely stopped, then once I got it started again the Audio cut in-and-out.... The producers 'in the bubble' confirmed it was happening to everyone. Surge in traffic for the fight? But they did say the wouldn't cut anything out of it... I don't think I could bring myself to watch part 2,, jeez Anthony was shook up. took the wrong side IMO

    Wow, sucks that I missed it. I like Ant and I like Ronnie B. Both of them are ridiculously fast wits and both have strong opinions and know how to entertain. Regardless of anyone’s opinions of his politics, I truly believe Ronnie’s one of the best interviewers on any media platform and usually better prepared than any other interviewer around. I’m gonna have to find this show somewhere to listen to.

    It reminded me of Artie Vs Chris Hansen. But Hansen just sat there taking hit after hit

    He wasn’t the best part, but was a unique part. Ronnie is a phenomenal interviewer with lightning fast wit. Sure he sounds like he has phlegm about ready to launch from his throat at any given moment, but that dude is an uncommon radio host.

    I stopped listening after fez left.:down:

    I don't get the "he's a phenomenal interviewer" bit, people said that shit about howard too. How fucking challenging is to interview a person who's there primarily to promote something?

    My least favorite parts of both the stern and r&f show were celebrity interviews.

    Well, I agree about Howard not being a good interviewer - he does get some celebrities to offer personal info, but for the most part Howard is unprepared and makes every interview about himself. Ronnie, on the other hand, is usually well prepared, moves the conversation along and is fast on his feet.

    My hangup with Ronnie b is, he's always gotta be the coolest cat in the room, even when he's doing an interview
