As a guest on Glenn’s radio program Thursday, author Nick Adams shared his feelings on the epidemic of political correctness sweeping America and the rest of the world.
“The politically correct position on America, if you are not an American and increasingly even if you are, is to hate America,” Adams said. “That’s what the teachers in high schools tell their students.”
“And it’s an absolute crock,” he added.
Glenn teased Adams for putting an extra “r” at the end of “America,” but praised him for boldly voicing his stance, unpopular as it is.
“You can’t be real popular being as rah-rah American as you are over in Australia,” Glenn said.
Adams went on to explain the importance of taking a stand against political correctness.
“If we don’t stand up, we’re going to lose the things that we would much prefer to be doing. Because there won’t be families to worry about. There won’t be neighborhoods to worry about. There won’t be a country to worry about,” he said. “This is a dire situation.”
While at the studios, Adams went on camera from Glenn’s office to introduce his new book, Retaking America: Crushing Political Correctness and share a few additional fiery tidbits with Glenn’s audience.
“Why is it that as a white, Christian heterosexual male, I’m not entitled to an opinion?” Adams asked. “If I was a naked, gay, Ecuadorian wind turbine engineer who got on his mat and prayed to Mecca five times a day and had a credit line at the bank of jihad, I’d have the world at my feet. This is exactly what political correctness does.”
What else does political correctness lead to?
“Political correctness has made us sissies. Political correctness has made us embrace mediocrity. Political correctness has made us ripe for the taking,” he said.
He concluded by explaining what he admires most about Glenn—someone who typifies the exact opposite of political correctness.
“He’s bold, he’s brash, he’s honest, he’s direct, he’s forthright and he loves America,” Adams said. “He’s different! There’s only one Glenn Beck. There should be only one America too.”
