Canadian Bacon: The wonders of socialized medicine

Were you happy with your medical two years ago? Did you feel like you had sufficient access to healthcare? Well, Nancy Pelosi said that even if everyone were happy and covered, the government still would have had to take it over.

Pelosi said, “If everyone in America was very, very pleased with his or her health insurance and had no complaints and had access to quality affordable healthcare in our country, it still would have been necessary for us to pass the healthcare reform bill because we could not sustain the system.”

Great, right? It works great in Canada. Michael Moore even made that one movie about it.

In some of the “best audio ever,” a Canadian caller to Rosie O’Donnell’s radio show talked about how wonderful universal healthcare was in her country because the only had to wait seven years to get elective surgery. She said, “In Canada we have universal healthcare, which is wonderful, but I have been on a waiting list for seven years.”

Ok, so maybe universal coverage means you may have to wait a little longer to see a doctor, but at least it saves the country money. Nancy Pelosi even said, “So, to say we're going to repeal it is, just as has been said by my colleagues, is to do very serious violence to the national debt and deficit.”

Again, not so much. As Stu pointed out, “Quick stat to point out here. I must do it. Canada pays a higher percentage of their healthcare costs out-of-pocket than you do in the United States. The percentage is higher in Canada than it is here.”

The happy ending to the story? Glenn said she might only have to wait another two years to see the surgeon.

Glenn said, “And the idea here, the choice that America has is individual choice, individual freedom, your right to pursue happiness as you see fit or will there be somebody telling you what to do and make the decisions for you? Nancy Pelosi has said that even if you are happy with it, they must make the choice and you see what the choice is. It's seven years in, you know, in Canada to wait for surgery. Well, that's fantastic.”

He added, “It's individual choice or government control. Government control will not win. Government control, it may win temporarily. It may be taken over. You may lose your freedoms, but in the end it doesn't work. It doesn't work.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.
