Did you pay attention to the international news from Europe this weekend? Just in case you missed it - Socialists have taken the presidency in France, Nazi’s just got 20% of parliament in Greece, and all signs point to the impeding collapse of the Euro, if not the entire European Union. But it’s just Europe! No need to worry. You’d have to be crazy to predict something like that having an impact on America....
"This is amazing to me. 20% of the vote in Greece went Nazi communist," Glenn said. "Remember Hitler got in on 30%."
Meanwhile, France elected it's first Socialist President in decades as they ousted center right incumbent Sarkozy.
The elections are largely seen as a response to austerity measures in the European countries facing increasing economic turmoil.
"They're talking today all about austerity, that the austerity measures are over. Well, what is austerity? Austerity isn't just budget cuts. Austerity is budget cuts coupled with crippling taxes. If you did budget cuts, serious budget cuts and tax cuts at the same time, that's the Tea Party method. It is reduce the size of government and reduce the burden on people. They don't want that option to be heard. They don't want that option to be known. And you see it over in Greece, you see it in France. You're about to see it over in England. You're seeing it everywhere. You're seeing it in Spain. The only option: High taxes, low spending. Well, that's not working."
Glenn noted that the scariest element out of the weekend was the election and legitimizing of the Nazi party in Greece. Glenn played audio of the Nazi victors meeting with the press and demanding that they rise and recognize them with the same respect they would other elected officials. The press complied.
"I can't believe that we're actually talking about ‑‑ remember that was a crazy conspiracy," Glenn said.
