Another amazing "coincidence"

Well, it seems that Barack Obama forgot to look backwards before looking at “forward” as his new campaign slogan. According to the Washington Times, somehow President Obama missed the rich association the term “forward” has with European Marxism throughout history.

“What a bizarre coincidence,” Glenn said sarcastically. “Apparently many communist and radical publications and entities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name forward. The word ‘forward’ carries a special meaning in the socialist political terminology. It had been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other left wing newspapers and publications. The slogan forward reflected the conviction of European Marxists and radicals – that their movements reflected the march of history which would move forward past capitalism into socialism and communism.”

Pat sarcastically joked about the odds that the Obama campaign would find itself using a Marxist or communist buzzword as its campaign slogan. He noted that this is just like the video he did called ‘The Road We’ve Traveled,’ which was just like The Road We’re Traveling.

Glenn pointed out that The Road We’re Traveling was written by the guy who named The New Deal. He described ‘political system x,’ which he said some call communism or fascism, as a utopian form of government the road we are on now is leading us towards.

The Washington Time didn’t even look backwards far enough, Glenn explained. “They missed Mao’s forward.”

“The Great Leap Forward?” Stu questioned jokingly.

The Great Leap Forward was the period between 1958 and 1962, also known as the Five Year Plan, where around 40 to 45 million Chinese people were killed under Mao’s rule. Rural and farming communities during this “Great Leap Forward” were seen as mere digits, and crimes like stealing something as small as a potato, even by a child, often resulted in being tied and up and tossed into a pond.

“Are you saying this administration would tie up children and throw them in a pond?” Glenn jokingly asked Stu.

“No,” he answered. “This is just a hapless mistake.”

“Look, you do have Ezekiel Emanuel saying that if you have a child with terminal cancer that you can euthanize them, but he never said you could just tie them up and toss them in a pond,” Glenn mocked.

“Vladimir Lenin, founded the publication Vpered, which is the Russian word for Forward,” Pat noted.

“Yeah, well, Marx and Engels also published a magazine in Germany called Forward,” Glenn added.

Stu pointed out one of the most unlucky coincidences of them all. A news organization that has met with this administration multiple times, and has been accused of basically being a branch of the White House, was pitching a new slogan all last year called “Lean Forward.”

This new campaign ad would probably be really effective if it wasn't pitching a term used by communist and marxists responsible for the deaths of millions of people around the world …oops.

Just another amazing coincidence brought to you by the Obama Administration.

On Friday, Mercury One hosted the 2022 ProFamily Legislators Conference at The American Journey Experience. Glenn Beck shared this wisdom with legislators from all across our nation. We must be on God’s side.

Winston Marshall assumed that he would be playing banjo with Mumford & Sons well into his 60s, but one tweet — simply recommending Andy Ngo's book — was all it took for the woke mob to attack. At first, Winston apologized, saying he "was certainly open to not understanding the full picture." But after doing some research, not to mention a whole lot of soul-searching, his conscience "really started to bother" him.

On the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Winston opened up about the entire scandal, what he discovered in the wake of his cancellation, and why he's decided to put truth over career.

"I looked deeper and deeper into the topic, and I realized I hadn't been wrong [when] I'd called the author brave," Winston said of Ngo. "Not only was he brave, he'd been attacked by Antifa mobs in Oregon, and he was then attacked again ... he's unquestionably brave. And so my conscience really started to bother me ... I felt like I was in some way excusing the behavior of Antifa by apologizing for criticizing it. Which then made me feel, well, then I'm as bad as the problem because I'm sort of agreeing that it doesn't exist," he added.

"Another point, by the way, that I found it very frustrating, was that that left-wing media in this country and in my country don't even talk about [Antifa]. We can all see this footage. We see it online," Winston continued. "But they don't talk about it, and that's part of my, I think, interest initially in tweeting about Andy's book. Because I think people need to see what's going on, and it's a blind spot there. ... CNN and MSNBC, they don't cover it. Biden in his presidential election said it was just 'an idea' that didn't exist. I mean, did he not see the courthouse in Oregon being burnt down?"
