Glenn explains why if the progressives are able to flip Texas, we are done

This Sunday, a bevy of celebrities will descend upon the Largo at the Coronet in Los Angeles for an “emergency benefit to help Texas women” affected by the abortion restrictions passed in the state over the summer – despite State Senator Wendy Davis’ best efforts to thwart the legislation. According to the Daily Caller, comedians Sarah Silverman, Zach Galifianakis and others are scheduled to appear for an evening of comedy and music called (excuse the language) “A Night of A Thousand Vaginas!

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Rather then mock the Hollywood culture that has these celebrities raising “emergency funds” for the poor women in Texas who have had their abortion rights restricted, Glenn chose to look at the bigger picture. This particular event is just one in a series of small steps being taken to ensure progressivism one day overtakes Texas.

“What this is really about is changing the culture in Texas. They are doing everything they can – the progressives – to center in on Texas. If they get Texas, we are done. If they flip
Texas, we are done,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “What do you think immigration reform is for? Why do you think they wanted to make sure that everybody can vote without any kind of ID whatsoever? It is because if you can flip Texas, you are finished. Why do you think we have been saying, ‘Move to Texas’?”

Last night, Glenn attended an event with Texas business owners and executives, and he was asked why he decided to move to Texas. The answer was simple: Texas is one of the last beacons of freedom.

“To build one radio studio in New York – that was already digital – it took us almost a year to finish that studio. It was already a studio! [But it] took a year. We signed the lease on [the Texas] studio in December, maybe late November, and we were on the air with a full digital studio… by January. That’s why we moved to Texas,” Glenn explained. “I looked at these guys and said, ‘You know why you moved to Texas. I know why. But do your employees know why you moved to Texas?’ You moved the Texas because you could no longer do business any place else.”

Pat pointed out that Dallas City Council members are now hoping to have a single-use plastic bag ban in place by March. And while such a restriction would seem like just another day at the office for a city like, say, New York, there are larger implications to such a ban in Texas.

“You have to understand that you have got to stand up for little things like the plastic bag thing. You have to stand up against that. That’s insanity. That’s fascism. If I want to use a plastic bag, I will use a plastic bag,” Glenn concluded. “If companies want to decide, that’s where you do it… If we are an ecofriendly company, and we don’t use plastic bags, that’s the way you do that. If you believe it, you convince people. Fascists ban things… What are we doing?”

    If you ask them they will come. I believe I remember Glenn telling people to come to beautiful Texas. You may have thought they wouldn’t bring their socialist baggage with them, but they always do. If you live in a good area, keep your mouth shut. I have a few options in the U.S. and a few outside of the U.S. and No I will not tell you where they are.

    Texas, like every other state, will fall to the powers of evil. There will be pyrhric victories, but the outcome of the war is not in doubt. Once the “takers” break 50% (and they are very close now) of the population, it’s over. The “end of days” are not supposed to be good times.

    I want to know why you liberals say you’re pro choice because you are not? It is more like your pro death. Because if you guys where really pro choice you would let Churches believe in traditional marriage and not try to force them to do anything or try to call them hate groups. If you were pro choice you would not be dictating me to buy healthcare. If you were pro choice would not be trying to take my right to choose to own a gun away. I am sorry you liberals are so far from pro choice that it is inronic in a sad way. No you liberals pro control and death.

    Its up to Texans to take hold of their education system mainly to keep out the libs. The Republican party needs to be proactive with all its citizens and make them aware of why Texas is doing so welk and many of the other states are not. If the stay stagnant like the Republicans in Minnesota well then alk you have to do is take alook at their city/zoos to see what happens. The conservative independent need to be boisterous as well just like this Demolibs and stop being the strong silent type. Lets be the pro active type instead and let those dirty libs have it.
    I have faith in Texans.

    Abortion is the only “choice” where you get a second choice. Choice #1: Let’s have fun and make a baby! Choice #2: Oopsie, changed my mind, can’t be “punished with a baby”, (obama quote). If you don’t think you are trying to make a baby when fornicating, then you haven’t made the connection between the “act” and a birth 9 months later. I’ll grant that most liberals ARE that stupid!

    Right now progressives are winning because they offer people ways to get out of their troubles. No matter if that is abortion, jobs, Gay or lesbian marriage or any other issue they face. People don’t want to adhere to any teachings or moral values. If their values are not what they believe just elect a progressive and make them correct. Its much easier to take a pill and get rid of a unwanted baby potentially then practice safe sex. No doubt that a lot of American’s like the progressive model of no morals and no regrets.

    Just watch how productivity drops in Colorado. Pot heads all going to work stoned. Well at least we know where they are. Let’s hope they don’t build cars out there. I believe this will run its course out there in Colorado and the negatives will finally hurt the pot business. Wait until one pot head kills a prominent family in a accident and law suits make selling pot a expensive business. Don’t get that when stuff is sold on the street. Nobody has any liability insurance as a dope dealer. Texas is full of have not’s, and the conservatives never pay attention to them. Progressives will promise the have not’s what they want.

    I thought Dennis Miller said it best when he said that he used to think liberals were the right people to be with, because they said “Stay out of my bedroom.” Now he realizes they want to control every other room in your house besides your bedroom!

    I’m not sure exactly what strategy the progressives are using to gain support, but one thing I noticed before my city imposed a fee on grocery bags (both plastic and paper) was that a local health food store was giving *free* showings of a documentary talking about the evils of plastic. The seating area was rather small, but as I recall they did this for a couple weeks. I imagine similar activities were going on in other places. In addition, one of the local PBS channels would sometimes show documentaries on this subject. Granted, these are small examples. Not that many people are going to watch these things, but one thing I learned years ago was there are people in every community who political operatives called “influencers.” They’re people who live in a community and happen to be political thought leaders in it. They know a lot of people who vote, and these “influencers” spread the word about how they think people should vote, and people tend to be swayed by what they say. I have a sense that some movies in the documentary format have a huge influence over how people vote. What’s reported in the news has an influence. Celebrity endorsement of issues also have that influence. As Breitbart said, “Politics is downstream from culture.” If conservatives are not in the cultural influence business, they’re dead, pretty much.

    I do wonder whether the pretext for it all, though, is how people work. If there are less people who are rewarded for putting in a good day’s work, then what use do they have for policies that promote individual merit, initiative, and original ideas?

    The sense I get is the people who support imposing these controls Glenn is talking about are the people who’ve already made it. They don’t have a sense that they have to struggle, use whatever resources they can, to get where they want to go. I remember when Sean Hannity called up a lady at a call center that was supposed to dispense information about Obamacare. It was great. He asked her what she thought of the law. She was very frank about it. She thought it was screwed up. He asked her, “Do you vote?” She said no. He asked her if she kept up with the news. She said, “I’m so busy with work, I don’t have time to keep up with the news.” That got me wondering whether this is a lot more widespread than we think, that people who are still trying to make it in this economy don’t have the energy to be informed, and to vote. This has been a common phenomenon in the past, and it’s the reason that seniors have tended to dominate in elections. They’re retired, and so they have the time to be informed, to meet with candidates one on one, and to vote. Recently this has changed, though, with younger demographics voting in large numbers as well. In the last election, as I recall, Obama actually lost among seniors, but won among those 55 and younger, which still gave him the margin of victory. I’d be interested to know what characterizes these younger voters.

    I fail to see the reasons for decrying abortion. Who gets abortions? I believe its poor women who can’t afford a baby for the most part. Wouldn’t having another welfare baby just increase the deficit and stress on our economy? They certainly aren’t going to grow up as conservatives. The odds are that an abortion prevents sheeple and progressives. Seems like a win-win to allow abortions.

    Understand, we are outnumbered plain and simple. Suckers outnumber pumpers, inmates outnumber the guards, whatever you want to call it, by shear numbers they win but when the time comes and the gloves hit the floor it wll be down to who wants this country more and they will lose.

    If its being followed, you really have no idea what is in the constitution. You should read reread it, and read the federalist papers, as it delivers a clear intent on what the constitution was suppose to be. It does not matter what they envisioned, it is as written, equally relevant now as it was then. If you do not like it, their is a way to change it. Do that instead of ignoring it, or using judicial fiat to change it, like it has been done for the last century.

    I have read and re-read the US Constitution AND all its Amendments numerous times. I have read the Federalist Papers but do not have them committed to memory. The fact still remains. We do have a Constitution that is valid. We have 3 branches of federal government: Congress, Executive and the Judiciary, with each branch having specific powers. The federal Courts are in fact tasked with determining if a law is Constitutional or not. The Constitution does not specifically address each an every circumstance in modern day life. Accordingly, it is the responsibility of the Courts to make that determination. That is the way the framers of the Constitution set up the system. In my opinion it is indeed working. It’s time to get over the fact that it doesn’t work like it did in the 1800′s.

  • John

    yes, we have a constitution and it is being followed somewhat – when enforced. But you’re wrong about the founders not imaging the world today. Sure, science and technology have made great leaps forward. But man, not so much. Power still corrupts. The political problems the founders fought are still the same. But, the founders did envision that the constitution would need to amended and they also envisioned a time, like today, when the federal government would need to be reined in via an Article V convention of states. The states have always been and continue to be the ultimate controller of the federal government. To learn more: http://www.ConventionOfStates.com.

    The real problem is that liberals are like locusts. They destroy one place, say Detroit, then they migrate to greener pastures where the jobs are, say Texas, only to destroy it over time.

    actually no. Article 1 section 8 specifically states what the government is suppose to do. If it is not in Art1sec8, then it falls to the states via the 10th amendment, and is NOT within the powers of the federal government. If you do not like it see article 5.

    Let me simplify this for you: Federal Courts answer federal questions and federal issues of law. State Courts answer state questions and state issues of law. It’s really fairly straight forward. Occasionally there are mixed issues. After working in the legal profession for 40 years I’ve seen enough curbside Constitutionalists beating the drum about the way things were in years gone by. Get over it. It’s a new day. Things will never be the way they were 200 years ago. Just look at the technological change that has occurred. Do you really think we can go back to the horse and buggy and telegraph era? I doubt it. Let’s embrace the future and embrace the governmental structure we have. It is a good one. The main thing that’s wrong with our political system isn’t the basic foundation, but it’s our political parties. I personally believe they should be abolished and we should start over. None of them are effective. Accordingly, I am registered non-partisan as I can’t stomach any of them, especially the Tea Party!

    I grew and lived in Texas my whole life until 2010. If I decide to go back it will be when I go in retirement. Texas is a money scam thats all there is to it. Being on SSI, having a degree, or retired you have window options.

    When Governor Perry goes to California and New York to convince people to come to Texas for jobs, what ideology do you think they will bring with them? You have vast migration from Mexico and states with failed liberal policies and poor employment, so what are you going to do about this? Make a plan or the writing is on the wall. You are right. The liberals destroy and then look for greener pastures to plunder, and they brag about their plan to turn Texas pro democrat. But why are you asking them to come on down?

    The original system is best. What it has morphed to is horrible. The government structure is horrible. Their are more ABC agencies then their are ABCs. The beast eats more than 3 trillion dollars from people who produce. It should not be stolen like that. Government does not even follow its own rules anymore, and does as it wants. NSA is a prime example. ACA if further proof that the system is beyond broken. The 80000 pages of regulations from unelected bureaucrats who have no right to stifle the people with their “We know best, even though we know nothing” attitude. I do think we can go back, because freedom works no matter the era. As a member of the TEA PARTY, I will continue to fight for what I want, and you can do the same.

    As a moderate conservative Texan I think that people like you, with only a black and white view of the world, are just as much a poison to this nation as the liberals are. The Church has every right to believe in traditional marriage. The government, however, is not a church. And as such should recognize any civil union between two citizens, be they heterosexual or homosexual, equally under the law. The government has no place to tell anyone what they can and can’t do with their own body and they can’t tell us what we can and can’t do with our minds. We where gifted by the founders with the bill of rights that says the government cannot force us to follow a state religion or block us from speaking our minds. No one has that right. You have a right to control yourself. As a intelligent American I know the world is made up of many shades of grey and that being pro-freedom means being in favor of letting people choose what they want to do with their lives with no interference. The Nazis that have stolen control of the republican party are just as bad as the liberals. Glen realized this and left FOX News. The current republican party wants to control your life just as much as the liberals do. Don’t let them. Be pro-freedom and realize that only God has the right to judge the us. He gave us free will so we could decide for ourselves what we want to do. So let people make their own choices as God gave them the power to.

    Why did they outlaw smoking in all bars why not let the owners decide who they want to serve and then from there you have the freedom to not go there if you don’t smoke and the owner can run his business as he chooses

  • Texan4Freedom

    That’s the ironic thing. If conservatives wanted to start taking back the nation they would make abortions legal. The vast majority of people who get abortions are impoverished and only vote liberal. The kids that they are forced to have because republicans hate abortion so much grow up to be liberals because they like handouts. Then they have more kids and the cycle continues. It swells the ranks of the Democratic Party with poor people and the Republicans continue to die off because the party is increasingly getting older. Want to turn things around? Stop thumping your Bibles and legalize abortion. Let God do his own punishing for their sins. And then maybe things will get better.

    One of those celebrities is Sarah Silverman, a woman who has said that she will not marry until same sex couples can. She’ll probably most likely will not see her wedding day, like,….never. And there’s Zach Galifianakis. Based on the material that I have seen and heard by these two, they are not as funny as they seem to think. Honestly, they are not really funny at all. So, they’ve decided to throw a comedy at Texas called, “A Night of A Thousand Vaginas”. That is exactly what Silverman, Galifianakis and every other celebrity out there at Upyourswood exactly are. I would’ve called it Hollywood but all of them out there are growing hollys out there ass, they don’t even make sense out of anything they say and do anymore. Hollywoodians don’t have a thing to make of when they are around us, real world folk. Whether we are Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Georgia, Kansas, Tennessee, Mississippi, or wherever here in the south or Midwest or wherever, they don’t have a damn thing against us to turn or flip us over like we’re some kind of leaf that just fell off of a tree branch. They can still step foot in our state, they can still have a friendly conversation with us, but they do not have power over us. Besides, with the sound of Texas being spoken out there where they live, I bet you a gold monkey’s butt that they cringe at the sound of any southern state and act like, “anywhere but there, please? Those people are just so damn conservative and constitutional, you can’t even talk to them about getting them into Obamacare, or getting them to legalize pot or marijuana, you can’t even talk them into legalizing immigration, you can’t talk them into legalizing gay marriage, you can’t talk them out of their religion. You can’t talk them out of their guns, they are so hard headed and hard in heart that you can’t get a word in edgewise to get through them. Why can’t they just let go of all that and join the world as it is to us? Why can’t they see things our way?” You wanna know why we don’t see things your way, Hollywood? Its because we don’t live in a dream world like you ingrates do. We actually work our asses off way more than anyone else. And yes, you can’t talk us out of our guns because you can’t. You can’t talk us out of our beliefs of why we are against all same sex marriage because we actually read and never forget what’s right and what’s wrong and it has nothing to do with our southern ways. We are southern because that’s where we live and how we live. And you are so right on the nose when you say that we don’t favor legalizing pot or marijuana because why do it when all it does is leave room open for addiction? The reason you numbskulls out there want it is because your damaged enough than you already are and you go and pull this unhealthy crap on yourself and you are actually dumb enough to do it? Did the news of Heath Ledger and River Phoenix not teach you a damn thing? Drugs and addiction lead to death and you want the rest of the world to follow in your footsteps? We have a saying down here in the south: HELL,NO!
    And you call us hard headed and hard at heart? It’s better than being a dumbass liberal that all of you became out of ruthless ambition. Your not actors or actresses anymore. You’ve become very dangerous people with nothing to do but this god awful foreplay that you and this government do with one another. You know what, Hollywood is a town that never should’ve happened. You know why? Because you started sharing and going to bed with government. Hollywood should’ve been called Washington D.C. Jr. You act like you give a damn but you really don’t, you act like that you care but you don’t. STOP THE DAMN ACTING! NOBODY IS FALLING FOR IT ANYMORE! We are wise to your every act now and don’t think that we are hard headed or hard at heart even once because we may look like lowlifes to you but we are people who really and actually give a damn and we don’t even act it. We show it! That’s what we do. We show it! Unlike all of you out there in Dumbwood,…..we have a heart and it does not bleed blue like yours does. So let us, southerners, take the time and pleasure to give you, Hollywood, the middle finger. On behalf of all Texans, they would really appreciate it that you don’t get or show up anywhere within a thousand yards of the state’s border or roads, period. In fact, get back in that fancy expensive car of yours and take your ass back to Washington Jr. You should’ve kept your first job you had before you traded it in for a film career. I’ll say it again: Hollywood is a town that never should’ve happened.
    Stay out of Texas and keep it that way!

    I wish I was so optimistic, but here we are in 2013, nearly a century after the world’s first Communist state was proclaimed, and two decades after it collapsed, with all the wreckage and lost lives on full display, and yet it is trending well in America, the country that brought about its demise, especially among youth. The pro-regressives (I refuse to award them an undeservedly positive label) are on the march, indoctrinated by supposedly educated academics who claim to seek truth but with blindfolds on to the bits they cannot accept.

    The trouble with socialism, and the reason it wont go away is because it is a lie as old as time: that one can have without effort that which requires it. A lie peddled by vain, ambitious, evil men. It will from time to time be forced to change its name, like the Devil, bur it will never actually go away. And we must resist it aggressively, and always.

    For those who think it can’t happen or would be hard to flip Texas, recall that about twenty years ago Colorado was a pretty solidly conservative state, with only the big university town (Boulder) and the state capital (Denver) being hard left.

    It’s now harder left than California, with deficit spending, plastic bag bans galore, and of course pot “legally” available even in many rural areas.

    Compare to say Texas, where your big college town and capital is hard left as well, with liberalism spreading as people in the big cities realize they too can get freebies paid for by the productive.

    I foresee oil development bans may soon start passing in Texas, too.

    Generally I agree. By what right does government have to be involved in marriage at all? That’s why the really smart homosexuals eschew government involvement in their unions. Once you let government in, you’ll never get rid of it. As far as your own body, your rights stop at the boundaries of another’s body. Whatever you do with your body does not give you the right to murder another human being. God has already judged the murderer and said, “You shall not murder.” In the case of abortion, freedom is the poison.

    The Democrats enslaved the blacks. Now blacks are vilified if they don’t vote Democrat—political slavery. Now these socialists want a new slave class, which is exactly what will be the result of Obama’s and the liberal’s amnesty. There aren’t enough jobs for citizens. What will 20 or 30 million illegal aliens do for work, and how many more Americans will become unemployed? The Democrats want a permanent welfare/slave economy that will be completely dependent on the government. They may get the voters they need, but the burden will break the back of the American economy, which is already in a steep dive—thanks to the Muslim Marxist in the White House and the socialist Congress.

    I BORN in another country, live in Texas for 17 years, I love this state, because Texas have my attitude… maybe in the future Texas will be take over, but I doubt it, because what many forgot, is that Texas is the ONLY State in the Nation, that force it’s children to learn Texas history, if they not, they will not past high school, we move from CA, live there for 7 years, my daughter obviously as a teen don’t know Texas history, when we got here, she learn real quick that to past, she need it to know Texas history…and so I love it.
    One other thing, a TRUE TEXAN… it’s a difference, you can ask any Texan, will fight to dead for their State, many if not most of them, are more proud to be Texans than to be Americans, if the SHTF will start most lately in Texas, while it’s people are southerners and with their colorful costumes, they are also hard people, use to the weather ( those that has not live here, don’t know what I’m talking about ) their hard life, Texas is more rural than a city type place, while we have very liberal Houston, Austin, Dallas, Arlington, those of the National movement are also in those areas, putting things in balance, and they are getting allot bigger since the first time I encounter them…not just from city people, but most especially rural.
    Them you have bikers and truckers, red necks to the core… mmmm it’s allot to fight in Texas to force blue, illegals or not… those will be in line too.

    By the way, I’m not in illegal, in fact I’m more than angry with this Amnesty talking, and I’m thinking about suing the gov. for retributions, if I can find more legal immigrants that can unite with me, if they decide to past amnesty, I want to know how they are going to make it, if we suit them, for time consuming and money taken from us, plus documentation and other things, just to have ” the possibility ” to enter, nothing promise, and now this illegals that actually are INVADERS not, IMMIGRANTS, are to get everything for being criminals as trespassing and go against the law of this Nation?

    Ask any legal immigrant we’re more angry than citizens… and I will fight to my last breath for Texas, as someone who have live dictatorship, Texas for me, is more than just the right to be here, it’s the very depth of my soul, FREEDOM.

    I’m sad to say it, but I’ve been watching Tx moving in the wrong direction for a while now, and it makes me very angry. Austin has always been a bed of Socialist hiding in the shadows, San Antono has been moving that same direction for a while now. but under Mayor Castro they are full blown moving towards Socialism. Houston, wow what can I say, they have drank so much Kool aid Sheila Jackson Lee is their poster child for good government. I thought Dallas would be a stronghold for conservitism but a good portion of it’s districts are quickly falling into the Democratic camp, and I’m sad to say it appears as the African American community is expanding in Dallas, they are falling right in line with the Socialist Agenda. I say Socialist Agenda because I know they call themselves Democrates, but when you look at the policies they are pushing, they are straight out of the Socialists handbook. The small towns of Texas I guess are the only true Texans left.

    We need to understand that the nation’s moral fiber has already been undone. With the influx of Californians, New Yorkers, Chicagoans, etc., who escaped their sick cities to come to Texas by the truck load, they bring with them the paradox of their existence. While escaping their garbage states, they bring with them all their liberal, left wing, socialistic mind set. They, much like many progressive “conservatives,” believe it’s all about the economy NOT about the deterioration of our moral, ethical, social fiber and the destruction of our Constitution and legal system. To wit! Yes. Texas will, sooner rather than later, join the rest of our “lost civilization” and ultimately sucumb and be destroyed as well. Hopefully however, we might last just a little longer.

    What’s all this talk about “paper virus plastic”. I’m not that old but I do remember back in the sixties all you got a the grocery store was paper, and as time went on folks started saying “paper bags my God man look at all the trees we’re cutting down just to bring home our food. So then the plastic movement started slowly you had the choice between the two and most preferred paper, at least my mom did. A grocery store size paper bag was perfect for lining you kitchen trash can, (dual purpose), plastic can be used for the same thing but at a much smaller scale.
    Now all you get is plastic (except if you buy the cloth ones) and once the gallon of milk you bought falls through the bottom along with the eggs and other stuff you start saying “NO” when asked if you would like to bag your milk and eggs.
    So it comes to this, if paper virus plastic is what’s got you tightly whites in a bunch give me a call I can come up with at least 10,000 other thing you can worry about. Now I love Glenn Beck, and I take all most all he says to the bank especially when he talks about the debt, waste and the segment he did last week on REHYPOTHECATION that was very scary stuff, look it up.
    But I think I’ve got a solution on what to do with plastic grocery bags. We here in Texas have have a toll road that goes from San Antonio to Georgetown (just north of Austin), people are complaining about wild hogs crossing the road and getting in the way of people driving 80+ MPH. So here my plan scatter all the plastic bags up and down the road, the hogs will eat them block their intestinal track and die, dual purpose plastic bags.
    Now I know P.E.T.A. and all the other KOOKS (Rush Limbaugh) out there will be down on me for this but, “hay”, plus this will create jobs………somebody has to go pick up all the dead hogs. Also look at the fact of feeding the hungry, get to the road kill soon enough and you can cut it up and have pork chops and sausage.
    No need for applause just send money thank you.

    Due to said bars losing some of their regular clientele, they lose money due to those ordinances. Each business has a different situation depending on where and how people around it live. Some favor smokers and some favor more non-smokers. You are correct, the business should be the decision-maker on how they allow what into their establishments. It might be the beginning of further regulating bars. For another example, look at the Truck Driving industry over the last decade. It is getting harder and harder to run a freight company these days, let alone a truck(s) for a small business. It all starts small then grows its vines all around, tying it up and growing its thorns into your budget/well being/your personal business. The way to stop those vines its to cut it down, it the source, and regularly. And that is some of what we, as Texans have been neglecting to do. It has to be done regularly and often to maintain our great state.
