Gurdon argued that several institutions, including the Democratic Party, mainstream media and universities, are all working together to advance the “agenda of race, class and … gender”.
“Right now we have an extraordinary situation in this country,” he said.

“You also have Corporate America, which is behind them.” “And it’s not the world’s biggest companies. It’s the world’s largest companies that control … who are allowed to hear their voices.”
