A progressive religious organization, American Values Network, has a new ad out attacking conservative leaders like Rush Limbaugh and Paul Ryan by criticizing their appreciation for Ayn Rand’s philosophical views.
The video, courtesy of The Blaze, is below:
“The American Values Network, when you go to their website, it's a guide to the scriptures and the budget,” Glenn described.
“Capitalism is only what you make of it. But it is the combination of freedom and capitalism and the self choice of being good to one another,” Glenn said in response to the video. “Capitalism goes so far to cover ground that no other system has ever covered. It brings people out of poverty and misery like no other system ever created by man.”
Stu pointed out that on the American Values Network, the site says their media and commercials are paid for by “Faithful America”- an organization founded by Jim Wallis. Oddly enough, another ad they are running defends Jim Wallis while attacking Glenn, but fails to note the connection between the organization and its leader.
And, of course, the group has tied to George Soros.
Stu pointed out that they received at least $800,000 from Soros.org, his website for the Open Society Institute.
“They also met with President Ahmadinejad face to face and called for more face to face meetings with him, with the government,” Stu said.
Stu said, “They received a $250,000 grant designed to help mainstream faith leaders become, quote, much better equipped with talking points, policy papers, intellectual support, prepared testimony, draft op eds, sermons, study guides and church bulletins and more able to unite around shared policy agenda.”
“We have the bake sale and then you have the shared policy initiatives. Those are the two things that the church always does,” Stu joked.
