Romney 2012: Not a communist, doesn't appoint radical Islamists

Glenn may have found one more tool you can use to get excited to vote for Mitt Romney. Not only is Mitt Romney not a communist, he’s also (most likely) not going to appoint any members of the Muslim Brotherhood!

Now, before you get cenacle because there are only two big reasons so far to excite the base behind Mitt Romney, remember, these are two REALLY big platforms.

1. Not a communist

2. Doesn’t appoint people associated with terrorist organizations

Those are pretty key standards, right?

Okay, maybe the bar is a little low, but when your opponent is actually appointing members of the Muslim Brotherhood, it’s pretty important to have a candidate that is strong on this. Pat and Glenn played an audio clip of Mitt Romney in 2007 on the radio show this morning that showed, not only is Romney strong on this issue, he may even be ahead of the curve.

This is what Romney had to say:

“Of course we get Osama Bin Laden and track him wherever he has to go and make sure he pays for the outrage he exacted on America. We'll move everything to get him. But I don't want to buy into the democratic pitch that this is all about one person: Osama Bin Laden. Because after we get him, there's going to be another and another. This is about Shia and Sunni. This is about Hezbollah and Hamas and Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood.

This is a worldwide jihadist effort to try and cause the collapse of all moderate Islamic governments and replace them with a Caliphate. They ultimately want to bring down the United States of America. This is a global effort we're going to have to lead to overcome this jihadist effort. It's more than Osama Bin Laden.”

“I think I’m in love with him,” Glenn joked after hearing the audio.

“I’m having a moment of pride,” Stu added. “I'm having Romney pride.”

“That was a seriously good moment for him,” said Pat.

Glenn did point out that the audio was five years old, but it was still a good moment.

“In a way I think that’s tougher,” Stu said. “Isn’t it tougher? It’s trendy now to talk about the Muslim Brotherhood.”

Glenn pointed out that it may not exactly be “trendy” to talk about the Muslim Brotherhood, but it does put him ahead of the curve. A large majority of Americans had probably never heard of the Muslim Brotherhood back in 2007. “He knows what's going on,” Glenn added.

Glenn told listeners that he was asked the question, “What do you think Romney will do about Iran?”

“I don't know, but I know he won't throw Israel under the bus,” he said. “And I know he's not going to appoint Muslim Brotherhood to the Department of Homeland Security.”

“In fairness on Iran, what will anybody do?” Pat asked.

Pat explained that he and Glenn recently spoke with a military guy who basically told them there wasn’t much that anyone could do.

While it may be concerning that there really doesn’t seem to be much we can do at this point about Iran, there is at some comfort in knowing that, if Romney wins, he at least won’t be appointing their allies to positions that are responsible for our national defense.

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.
