GIVING TUESDAY–SUPPORT KNSJ INDEPENDENT PUBLIC COMMUNITY RADIO

Friends,

As we approach the end of another year in America, one thing is clear. We’re grappling with a lot. Democracy is in peril. Gun violence, antisemitism, racially-motivated hate crimes, and the wealth-gap are all on the rise. The rampant spread of misinformation throughout our increasingly corporatized digital media platforms means that now more than ever, independent media is critical to the democratic discussion. This is why KNSJ matters. In our nine years on the air, KNSJ has featured live debates between candidates for City Council and the Mayor’s office, live productions from rallies for climate action, labor rights, civil rights, the PRIDE parade, and the Women’s March. We have more science and environment-based programs than all the other stations in San Diego County combined. The service we provide to our listeners doesn’t stop at our Public Affairs programming. KNSJ is continuing to develop the best independent music programming schedule you’ll find in the entire county. Night in and night out, listeners who tune to 89.1 FM or stream online at knsj.org will hear an incredibly eclectic array of music that will not be found on any of the corporately-monopolized stations that dominate the airwaves. In 2023, KNSJ hopes to relocate to a bigger and better studio, strengthen our terrestrial signal, continue to expand our locally-produced programming schedule, and strengthen our ties to the community through live-music events and youth-based radio-production opportunities. This Giving Tuesday, we hope that you will consider contributing to the cause of Social Justice community radio in San Diego County by becoming a member of KNSJ. Your donation will not only help KNSJ accomplish our goals, but will also help to counteract the dangerous spread of misinformation throughout the digital landscape with the type of truth-telling that only independent media can provide. Thank you for your support and donations. Donate Today (for as little as $24/year you can become a member!) knsj.org #knsj

YOU MIGHT BE A JAN SIXER (Opinion)

(with apologies to Jeff Foxworthy)

You don’t necessarily need to have attacked the Capitol last January 6th to be a Jan Sixer.  The legion of sympathizers and wannabes has only grown since then. 

You might be a Jan Sixer, if…:

  • You like the fact that Donald Trump is a complete a…hole.
  • You’re not willing to overlook that Trump is an incompetent, corrupt, racist.  You actually like that about him.
  • You think Trump would make a great stand-up comic.
  • You think that all 26 of the women who have accused Trump of sexual misconduct should be locked up.
  • You think that the only people more qualified to be elected than right wing talk show hosts are reality TV stars.
  • Your favorite reality TV star is Tucker Carlson.
  • You think that there might be three or four Mexican immigrants that are good people.
  • You have a confederate statue in your front yard.
  • You think that woke is what you did this morning.
  • You took out a second mortgage so you could buy more guns.
  • You like global warming because where you live is too cold.  And you live in Texas.
  • Your kid’s godmother is Marjorie Taylor Greene.
  • You’re on a first name basis with Hugo Chavez’s ghost.
  • You believe that Tom Hanks is a baby-eating child molester.
  • You believe you’re a very stable genius.

You might be a Jan Sixer, if…:

  • One reason you want Trump to be President is you need a pardon.
  • Your attorney is Rudy Guiliani.
  • You want to make voting Democrat a capital offense.
  • You don’t believe that Joe Biden was born in the U.S.
  • You think chanting USA USA is a substitute for genuine patriotism.
  • You wish that Mike Pence was more like Vladimir Putin.
  • You know how to tie a noose.
  • You always have zip ties handy.
  • Your horns match your body armor.
  • You can think of more than one use for a flag pole.
  • You think that everyone should be able to own an assault weapon, unless they are a Capitol policeman.
  • Your idea of supporting police is wedging one in a door.
  • You want to have January 6th made a national holiday.
  • You won’t go snorkeling because you’d have to wear a mask.
  • You think Trump cares about you.
