The driver had his phone hooked up through the stereo and was pumping out an episode through the car speakers — loudly, as if looking to convert a captive audience. “Do you like Kyle Kulinski?” The driver, Ahmed, was a recent immigrant and apparently a die-hard fan of Secular Talk, the political talk show that Kulinski broadcasts on YouTube. I told him, yes, in fact. I do like Kulinski, had come across his show several years ago, and, all things considered, he seemed pretty good. “He understands what we’re up against,” Ahmed said. “Like Bernie.” But I was surprised to hear Kulinski’s name mentioned in the same breath as Bernie Sanders, particularly with such adoration. Because what I did remember about Kulinski’s show struck me as mostly capital-P “progressive” takes on the news — the left wing of the Netroots crowd more than the democratic socialism Sanders has popularized. It’s an impression that wasn’t entirely incorrect. “I have no time for philosophical, airy bullshit,” Kulinski tells me from his home in Westchester, New York. “I don’t want to hear about Lenin. I don’t want to hear about Marx. I just want a super plainspoken, straightforward agenda with a straightforward way of selling it.” With over 800,000 subscribers and nearly 670 million total views on YouTube, selling a progressive agenda is clearly something Kulinski knows how to do — even Democracy Now, the long-standing flagship of progressive media, cannot match his reach on the platform. Chapo Trap House can certainly boast a wildly devoted fan base (and a not insignificant degree of media influence), but their audience is roughly half the size of Kulinski’s. While Secular Talk might be more likely to be looped in with the progressive networks around Air America and Pacifica alums like Sam Seder than the more resolutely socialist world, Kulinski’s fiery rhetoric, razor-sharp class instincts, and knack for withering takedowns sets him apart from his peers. Judging by his rhetoric alone, he’s closer to a Eugene Debs than a Chris Hayes. But unlike Hayes, Amy Goodman, or his friend Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks — who began airing Secular Talk on his web network seven years ago — the thirty-two-year-old Kulinski is virtually invisible in the mainstream media. Despite his enormous fan base, his show has never once been mentioned in the obligatory trend pieces on “the Millennial Left” pumped out by the prestige media. Nor has Kulinski’s name ever popped up at all in the New York Times, Vox, the New Yorker, New York Magazine, or the Washington Post, despite his leading role in cofounding Justice Democrats, the organization widely credited with sweeping Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the rest of “the Squad” to power. Just last week, his Wikipedia page was deleted. The reason? “There is very simply no [reliable source] coverage of this person,” according to one moderator. In new media, he’s king — the Sean Hannity of the Berniecrat left. In old media, he’s nobody. I suspect there are a few reasons for that. There is nothing “cool” about Kulinski’s show. (As a friend put it, “‘Welcome to Secular Talk’ sounds like something you’d hear on Egyptian radio.”) His no-nonsense social-democratic politics won’t get him much cred with the Full Communism crowd. He records his show not in Brooklyn or Los Angeles, but in a studio he built himself in his modest Westchester home. His hair is too groomed and his taste in clothes too preppy to qualify as “Dirtbag Left.” Nor has he ever attended an n+1 release party. “Not only have I not attended one,” he says, “I have no idea what that means.” And yet he’s astonishingly plugged-in for a young man in the suburbs. Wondering how Sanders ended up on the Joe Rogan Experience? Kulinski, a frequent guest on Rogan’s wildly popular show, introduced them. “You make the most sense to me,” Rogan told Kulinski on a recent episode. “You’re a normal person.” Much like Sanders himself, Kulinski’s show has a massive audience that just doesn’t compute with our media’s understanding of “what the kids want” or even “what the left-wing kids want.” It’s probably for the best — the very woke and very WASP-ish decorum haunting much of the media world is nowhere to be found in Secular Talk. “Corporate Democrats over-focus on identity as a trick to divert you from the issues that unite us all — class issues,” he said on a recent episode.

The view is right racism is obvious.. KYLE who was the last popular vice president ? I bet it wasn't anyone black.
Get rid of Kaballah Harris
Sunny Hostin is anti-White. The View’s goal, like Kyle, is to make sure people vote and stay on the Democrat Party plantation.
I don't watch the veiw as it invokes hatred.
Lol shes unpopular be cause she can't do the job she was placed in .
I know black folks that are not crazy about Kamala. Aside from her acting like the happy drunk (which she mistakes for charm), I have never seen her passionate about any policy position. She blows with every wind. That demographic of folks that don’t like black folks/woman - they are out there). But I don’t think that is the strongest argument when it comes to her. She has that who bi-racial component working for her (where both sides accept bi-racial folks).
She's totally underwhelming as a politician. Totally nondescript.
Literally no one ever talked about any other vice presidents or cared what they did until now.
Its true that racists dont like Kamala harris
Its also true that normal people dont like Kamala harris
Can’t criticize Dianne Feinstein or you’re a misogynist. Can’t criticize Kamala Harris or you’re racist. Love these bullet proof politicians you’re not allowed to legitimately criticize or you’re some kind of -ist.
I don't know what's worse the fact the panel agreed or that the fucking audience clapped for that bullshit
Sunny's delusions here make it difficult to legitimately address systemic racism in America. In order to bolster credibility, we have to be able to point out when it's not racist. Kamala's demerits are almost entirely performative.
Yet somehow Barack Obama was considerably more popular than her.
And Joe Biden.
They're trying to galvanize the liberal white guilt vote
Kyle, I think she meant repeating the subject "car" 3 times, not a 3-word sentence.
LMFAO goddam people reach so goddam hard to be fucking victims. The world doesn’t owe anyone a fucking thing grow up and look in the mirror and stop professional victimhood.
She's unpopular because of the innocent people on death row
Joe Biden is a big advocate for black Supremacy
Sunny Hostin and Whoopi Goldberg are committed and extreme black supremacist and the open willingness and support they give this black Supremacy is utterly reprehensible the biggest threat to this country is black Supremacy and we need to nip black Supremacy in all aspects of our culture
