The War on Moms

While the left continues to accuse the right of waging a “war on women,” the Obama Administration is implementing their own “war on women” by, as Glenn put it, “treating them like morons.”

Yesterday, Democratic talking head Hilary Rosen went on CNN and basically said that because Ann Romney was a stay at home mom, “she’s never worked a day in her life,” and therefore doesn’t have any credibility regarding economic issues.

Here is her statement from CNN last night:

“With respect to economic issues, I think, actually, Mitt Romney is right, that ultimately women care more about the economic well-being of their family, and the like. But he doesn't connect on that issue either. What you have is Mitt Romney running around the country saying my wife tells me what women really care about are economic issues. When I listen to my wife that's what I'm hearing. Guess what, his wife has actually never worked a day in her life. She's never really dealt with the economic issues that -- a majority of issues that women are facing in terms of how do we feed our kids, how do we send to them to school, and how we worry about their future."

Glenn couldn’t help but point out that Ann Romney has not only raised five children, those children were all boys – not exactly an easy task.

Stu took note of how little attention has been paid to the second part of Rosen’s offensive comment. “She has never put thought into the economic future of her children.”

“That’s a shot at being rich,” Pat said, also questioning how anyone could not be aware that most everyone is concerned with the future of their children, regardless of their economic situation.

“I bet wealthy conservatives are more concerned about their children's economic future than liberals are,” Glenn said. “Because conservatives are more likely to say, pull yourself up by your bootstraps this is my money I made it. You go make it on your own. I'll help you, but you go make it on your own. You're not going to live off daddy. The Kennedys live off daddy, and granddaddy, and gran-gran-grandaddy. Limousine liberals, that's what it is. They pass it from generation to generation, and they just become these really dependent people.

This always seems to be how the left exposes who they really are. They point their finger at the right, and accuse them of exactly what they themselves are guilty of. “This is who Hilary Rosen, and people like her are,” said Pat.

For those that are thinking that this isn’t really relevant to the Obama campaign, he can’t control every talking head out supporting him on the campaign trail, they may want to consider Hilary Rosen’s connections to this administration, like the fact that she’s made multiple visits to the White House.

“She’s been to the White House numerous times,” Stu said. “In fact the White House logs, according to National Review, say that Hilary Rosen has visit the White House thirty-five times.”

Thirty-five White House visits may not seem like a lot for a President who has been in office for over three years, but compare that with General Petraeus, who is in charge of a war operation in Afghanistan that has been going on for about a decade, and you may notice a problem.

General Petraeus has been to the White House nine times.

“So Hilary Rosen has been to the White House 35 times, and General Petraeus has been there nine times,” Stu said. “Here's the guy who's bailed out this President [General Petraeus] when he was in a really tough spot. He came in and took one for the team, stepped up for his country and didn't care about politics – and bailed out this President in these wars. He gets nine visits, and Hilary Rosen, the “hey, the stay at moms don't work” lady gets 35.”

“Hey ladies, how are you feeling about ‘stay at home moms have never worked a day in their life?” Glenn asked.

Rosen’s comments fit the pattern of the left. Glenn pointed out that unless you see the world their way, you’re going to be demonized. The left will find something wrong with your lifestyle or ideology to make what you’re doing seem worthless - notice the deafening silence of groups like the National Organization for Women.

Ann Romney doesn't seem to need the defense of any organization. She quickly came out and defended herself yesterday by joining Twitter (@AnnDRomney) and releasing a statement saying, "I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work." This started a firestorm on twitter, and had the left backpedaling so fast they couldn't help but trip all over each other.

“I think I like Ann more than I like Mitt,” Glenn said. “She’s a pretty strong woman.”

Glenn noted that she suffers from Multiple Sclerosis, something the liberal media would have quickly pointed out if a conservative had attack a mother of five for staying home and raising her children. Ann is also a breast cancer survivor.

“Will the press even do anything about it?” Glenn asked.

“Of course not,” Pat said.

“This is a bad one though,” Stu said. “As you're trying to pitch your sell to women across the United States, you're this insulting? This is the attitude they've carried throughout the campaign. They always demean the stay-at-home mom. It’s always a secondary choice and something they don’t like. And here it is, in it's most overt stance. And immediately the administration comes out and says, well this is just an advisor. We don't agree with these comments.’ Really?”

Stu pointed out the hypocrisy of this White House that didn’t seem to have any problem coming out and exploiting Romney’s advisor who made the ‘etch-a-sketch’ comment. However, when it is one of the Obama Administration’s advisors, the media backs off quietly.

This wasn’t a comment about one person running for President, this was a comment that belittled women all across this country doing the best they can to raise their kids and take care of their families.

“You want to talk about a war on women? Not only did they say this to Ann Romney. But they took everybody that works at home, and everybody who is home schooling,” Glenn said. “Every woman who is strong and stays at home, they're now adding on top of it the real war on women, which is the subtle war of the demeaning and the degrading of those women and their choices.”

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
