Obama Rewrites History

 

In case you haven’t heard, GM is back on their feet. At least that’s what President Obama told the auto workers in Detroit yesterday.

“They made a huge profit last year. Largest ever,” Pat told Glenn, isn’t buying the claim from the President.

“It’s pretty easy to make a huge profit when the government comes in and pays all my bills. America spent eighty billion—eighty—bailouts. We’re not getting it back gang,” Glenn said.

The only reason that GM is “back on their feet” is because America spent eighty billion dollars. But, that’s not all the President had to say. He went on, “The same folks who said if we went forward with our plan to rescue Detroit you can kiss the American automotive industry good-bye.”

Of course the President didn’t care to give any examples of people saying that. In fact, Stu points out that they were saying the opposite.

“We were making the argument if you didn’t give them any money, and they went through bankruptcy that they would still survive. The complete opposite of what he’s saying,” Stu said.

Glenn jumped in and pointed out that they may have said if the government jumps in, and tries to design automobiles that they wouldn’t succeed. Judging from the Chevy Volt, it’s a safe assumption that was another accurate prediction from Glenn.

“Remember when Obama said that Ford had to have the bailout? All of them had to take it, and Ford said up yours Mr. President. They took zero dollars. Ford is doing well,” Glenn said. (and their cars don’t look like Chevy Volts, I might add…)

“They [Ford] did not take the bailouts… They’re still around magically!” Stu added.

Pat, who doesn’t support the bailouts either, made an interesting point. “While I don’t support the bailouts, I don’t either support him taking credit for something he did not do. Bush did the bailout, and he has rewritten history to take credit for it,” Pat said.

President went on to make it seem like those against the bailouts were against the workers, and that’s who the bailouts were for. That is wasn’t about paying back the unions.

“Explain to me how the unions leapt over the bond holders. That doesn’t happen. That required someone in the government to make that happen,” Glenn said.

This is the President who during is campaign said, “I spent my entire adult life working with SEIU, I didn’t suddenly discover SEIU. Your agenda has been my agenda in the United States Senate. Before debating healthcare I talked to Andy Stern and SEIU members. Before immigration debates took place in Washington I talked with Medina and SEIU members. Before the EFCA I talked to SEIU.” …but he’s not a union guy.

“You know what kills me,” Glenn said, “the number one visitor to the White House is Andy Stern and Richard Trumpka.” Later adding, “ALF-CIO and SEIU, are number one, and you’re not a union guy?”

“It’s amazing,” Stu said, “This is essentially his main argument for re-election—this ridiculous bailout of the auto industry, in which we, the American people, are going to lose twenty-four billion dollars. His priority, this thing he thinks is his best argument, has us losing dozens of billions of dollars. We’re not picking his worth thing and making fun of it. This is what he’s picking as his best thing.”

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
