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.

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?"

FBI whistleblower Steve Friend exposed the FBI for its handling of the investigation into the January 6 riot — and paid the price. Friend joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to describe the series of events that eventually led him not only to leave the FBI, but to speak out against potential abuses within the department as well. The crux of his story began with cases concerning the January 6, 2021, riot and one arrest warrant that he refused to take part in.


Friend also joined Glenn on his "Targets of Tyranny" special to explain why he believed the January 6 cases were run by Washington, D.C., and how the agency's handling of the "J6" investigations has been so "unusual" that he says he's "never" seen anything even close to this before.
