Luke Rudkowski asks Chevy Chase about his thoughts on Barack Obama’s broken promise of closing Guantanamo Bay. Chase then justifies his support for Obama regardless of this by stating that even though he doesn’t agree with torture, a lot of other countries do it too.

Luke Rudkowski is an independent journalist, activist, live streamer and founder of WeAreChange.org.

Luke began his activism at the age of 17 when he was wrongfully accosted and assaulted by the NYPD. In 2006, at the age of 20, Luke founded the independent and grassroots media organization, WeAreChange. Through this organization and the use of social media, he has aimed to inspire those who no longer feel they can trust the mainstream media to become the media themselves. As support for WeAreChange grew, many followers became active themselves and WeAreChange has grown into a global organization with 160 independent chapters around the world.

Through Luke’s activism and journalism he has been able effect legislation and also influence dialog on a national level on important issues such as extrajudicial assassinations. Along with being featured in multiple documentaries, his work has been highlighted in numerous major news publications including CNN, MSNBC, BBC, The London Guardian, FOX, Huffington Post, Rolling Stone, RT, Al Jazeera, among many more.

Luke’s work with WeAreChange has covered a broad spectrum from police brutality, human rights and protests to in depth interviews with many prominent political and influential figures. He is well known for his guerrilla style journalism and confronting prominent governing figures with questions that the public would not hear about through mainstream media. A small representation of his confrontations include Henry Kissinger, Ben Bernanke, Joe Biden, Mitt Romney, Lord Jacob Rothschild, Mayor Bloomberg, Larry Silverstein, and the Rockefeller Family

Luke has traveled around the world covering events, conducting interviews and live streaming protests. On Luke’s work the Village Voice stated, “Luke Rudkowski, whose live stream is one of the most reliable and engaging records of Occupy Wall Street actions.” As some politicians have deemed Luke’s journalism a threat, he has been banned from entering Canada and has been falsely arrested numerous times for questioning people such as Mayor Bloomberg. His reporting has often caused him to face the blunt of police brutality and Luke has been interrogated and harassed by police on many occasions. Police have gone as far as attempting to set up a fake bomb threat in order to refrain him from carrying out his activism.

Celebrity supporters of Luke and WeAreChange include: Rosario Dawson, Roseanne Barr, Rosie O’Donnell, Prodigy, KRS-1, Immortal Technique and Dylan Ratigan.

    You could sell Democrats and Republicans anal sex with a rooter.

    Is wearechange.org some sort of TMZ-like political site? All I see is random celebrities talking about Obama.

    That’s an extremely respectable position to be honest about. The guy is an entertainer. He’s an actor. It’s not his fucking job to decide when and where systematic abuse makes any sense or not.

    Admitting that we put certain people in positions of power and we basically have to live with the decisions they make is absolutely the constant state of a representative republic. The only power the citizenry has is to vote, and having strong opinions about this or that doesn’t matter unless you’re trying to convince people to vote a certain way.

    Strangely enough, I never found his comedy all that great either. Totally blows the lid off the myth that bland upper middle class white people are dynamic, exciting and insightful.

    • Hadrian999

      His word association skit with richard pryor was quite daring for it’s time

      • Liam_McGonagle

        It never really did much for me, but I concede its place in entertainment history.

        This is my own bias, but I feel that too many of Pryor’s white straightmen got too much credit for their participation; Chase and Gene Wilder. Those guys could have been cardboard cutouts and the skits would have worked almost as well.

        • Hadrian999

          just doing that skit on network tv took guts at that time, was never much of a wilder fan

    Chevy Chase is more of an idiotic ass in real life than he ever was in the movies.

  • Jeb Morningside

    What an absolute moron.

  • Matt Staggs

    As I understand it, Chevy Chase is a legendary asshole in real life. I’m hardly surprised by this.
