Lee Camp challenges progressives with his distinctive brand of political humor. He’s a cross between Lenny Bruce and Lewis Black — and toss in a dash of George Carlin. What makes Camp distinctive, however, is that he is an unapologetic advocate for the common good.
Whereas many comics boast that they are into making people laugh, not social change, Camp is all about shaking up the institutional foundations in society and helping to spark grassroots activity.
Just click here to get your copy of Camp’s rollicking frontal rants (now in book form). “Moment of Clarity: The Rantings of A Stark Raving Sane Man” is yours free with a minimum contribution of $25 to what Camp calls “the best media outlet around”: Truthout. You will be supporting fiercely independent journalism and irreverent comedy at the same time.
Not everyone can pay for the news. But if you can, we need your support.
Truthout is widely read among people with lower incomes and among young people who are mired in debt. Our site is read at public libraries, among people without internet access of their own. People print out our articles and send them to family members in prison — we receive letters from behind bars regularly thanking us for our coverage. Our stories are emailed and shared around communities, sparking grassroots mobilization.
We’re committed to keeping all Truthout articles free and available to the public. But in order to do that, we need those who can afford to contribute to our work to do so — especially now, because we only have hours left to raise over $9,000 in critical funds.
We’ll never require you to give, but we can ask you from the bottom of our hearts: Will you donate what you can, so we can continue providing journalism in the service of justice and truth?
