With Egypt on the brink of chaos, the world has closely followed America’s reaction to the crisis. And what are our leaders saying? President Obama’s recent remarks have Glenn worried as he played the disturbing audio on radio this morning.
“I want you to know that what is happening on the streets and verified by the New York Times, this isn't just us now. This is the New York Times as well. What is happening on the streets is a very well organized movement. It is organized by the left, by the labor unions, by the communists, by the Islamic radicals, the Muslim Brotherhood. It is organized. And it is the youth,” Glenn said as he introduced the audio.
The President said, “I just want to say that we are following today's events in Egypt very closely and we'll have more to say as this plays out. But what is absolutely clear is that we are witnessing history unfold. It's a moment of transformation that's taking place because the people of Egypt are calling for change. They've turned out in extraordinary numbers representing all ages and all walks of life, but it's young people who have been at the forefront. A new generation. Your generation who want their voices to be heard. And so going forward we want those young people and we want all Egyptians to know America will continue to do everything that we can to support an orderly and genuine transition to democracy in Egypt. Now, as we watch what's taking place, we're also reminded that we live in an interconnected world.”
“It is a moment of transformation. Fundamental transformation, Mr. President? Would you call this fundamental transformation? It's a moment of transformation. You need to open up your mind and listen and read between the lines with this guy. It is a moment of transformation,” Glenn said.
“I don't care what anybody says. That is the president of the United States inspiring the youth and ‑‑ of the world and saying, ‘Look what you can do. Look what you can do. You keep going. Revolution. Fundamental transformation.’ He is targeting specifically in his speech the youth of Egypt.”
“ I am looking at this man as a community organizer and realize that we are talking about the fundamental transformation of America and the rest of the world. And I'm looking at a man who has experience as a community organizer and listening to what he says and looking at it from his point of view.”
“You can call me a conspiracy theorist and you say whatever you want about me. I don't care,” Glenn said.
“Democracy is a code word. We don't have a democracy. American democracy, there is no American democracy! Democracy fails. If you read the words of our founders, they all knew this. Democracy fails,” Glenn explained.
In America, we have a Republic, which is different than a strict Democracy.
“You know, you said democracies don't work. The reason why, the founders talked about democracy being mob rule and everything. They were talking about a republic. That's why we are a republic,” Stu explained.
“And I know you've hit that point before but so many people just look at those words interchangeably, which is why the left uses them like that,” Stu said.
“It was a progressive use and a communist use of the word ‘Democracy.’ We weren't using ‑‑ we never called ourselves democracy until I think around Teddy Roosevelt. And, you know, socialist progressives and all of that stuff started, that's when they started talking about democracy and they slowly but surely changed us. We're not a democracy. We are a republic. We have one man, one vote. But then it goes into a system that prevents mob rule,” Glenn said.
