Hey everybody! My name is Emily Rinaldi, I am 19 years old, and a college sophomore at The College of New Jersey. I am the host of the podcast “In, Not Of” and the newest contributor to The American Pigeon where I hope to explore politics and theology from a young, conservative perspective.
I’ve always loved politics but it wasn’t until I got to high school and saw the impact that far left policies had not only on societies at large but also individuals, that I became truly invested. I saw resentment, entitlement and poor mental health infiltrating my generation rapidly around the same time that far left ideas were introduced into the education system and mainstream social media. I began to do my own research and saw the undeniable correlations between the “progressive” ideas surfacing in society and the flaws that were plaguing my generation. I also saw every misconception that the media perpetuated about conservativism being completely debunked with just a little bit of research. Since then, I have been conservative!
Over the past few years the political contention in the United States has only increased and now I see the importance of everyone speaking about their opinions, even if they aren’t always widely accepted. The goal of my podcast, “In, Not Of” or any content that I put out through American Pigeon is to spark conversation and elevate any marginalized voices that want to be heard.
