(Not) Shocking: Obama picks socialist as Medal of Freedom honoree

Dolores Huerta is not shy about her socialist beliefs. She’s heaped public praise on the work Hugo Chavez is doing by socializing Venezuela and wonders why America isn’t following the same path (wait…we aren’t?) Huerta has said that "Republicans hate Latinos" and has no problem with illegal immigration. So, of course, she's a great pick for the Presidential Medal of Freedom ...if your President happens to be a socialist.

That's right, Dolores Huerta can now add one more bullet to her resume. Thanks to President Obama she has been awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

It would be a HUGE understatement to say Glenn wasn’t exactly thrilled about this, as he told listeners about the President’s honoree. Glenn has been lambasted by the mainstream media for daring to describe President Obama as a socialist.

When given the facts, Glenn would argue that the mainstream media should be lambasted for calling the President anything but a socialist, and for completely ignoring and/or avoiding his radical ties. His latest slogan, “Forward,” has been used throughout history in socialist and communist regimes, he’s appointed multiple known socialists and communists along with those that praise them to his cabinet – Carole Browner, Van Jones, and Anita Dunn just to name a few – and now, he’s honored an honoree chair of the Democratic Socialists of America with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

“So you have some idea of who has received this in the past, it has been Billy Graham, Pope John Paul, Gordon B. Hinckley, Mother Teresa, Neal Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, Jackie Robinson, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Friedrich Hyack, Bill Cosby, Ansel Adams, Frank Sinatra, B.B. King, John Wayne, Walt Disney, Charlton Heston, Bob Hope, Jimmy Stewart, Norman Rockwell, and Dolores Huerta – the honoree chair of the Democratic Socialists of America,” Glenn said, “A woman who has bashed the United States as a nation that stole Mexican land, whose allegiance lies not with this country but with Mexico.”

After playing an audio clip of Huerta saying that "Republicans hate Latinos," Glenn reminded listeners that President Obama was supposed to be ‘the great uniter’, “so he starts by giving the Presidential Medal of Freedom to a woman who says that Republicans hate Latinos?” Glenn asked.

But there’s more. Here are just a few samples of the audio clips Glenn played on radio this morning:

Huerta (speaking to Mexicans/Mexican Americans): “As we like to say, we didn’t cross the border, the border crossed us”

Huerta: “And we have a campaign that we rolled out – and we rolled it out here in the state of Texas deliberately, because we wanted the message to come home to the neighborhood, to the barrio, to the community. And it’s a program that we’re calling ‘We Can Help.’

Huerta (speaking in a commercial): “I’m Delores Huerta and I have a message for every hardworking farmworker: You deserve to get paid every dollar you earn, and have safe housing and transportation. This is the law. The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division can help if there’s a problem. Whether your documented or not, the call is free and confidential.”

Huerta also had a lot of surprisingly great things to say about Hugo Chavez and what he’s doing down in Venezuela. She praised the cooperative farms, free medical and dental care, the free housing for the people (that Venezuela’s military commands their representative to provide). “We are the richest country in the world, right? So why can’t we do that in the United States? Republicans hate Latinos. Republicans hate Latinos,” Huerta said.

Glenn emphasized again that yes, Dolores Huerta, who praises socialist dictators like Hugo Chavez, is the Presidential Medal of Freedom Honoree.

“So you know who Hugo Chavez is.  Why can't we do this in America? There's many people in this administration who ask that very question. Why can't we do it!? In fact, one of them is the Marxist and diversity Czar at the FCC Mark Lloyd,” Glenn said. “A guy who says a very important revolution happened, but only when he got control of the media.”

Glenn decided to take a better look at the wonderful Venezuela and Hugo Chavez that everyone in this administration seems to adore so much.

Here are just a few of the facts on Chavez and Venezuela that Glenn shared with listeners this morning:

Hugo Chavez has rationed water and light. Small towns in Venezuela now go weeks without water and hours without electric lights.

He’s trying to control what students can and cannot do.  Chavez has his own University where Chaveznistas can attend – none of them get hired.  Why? Their educational system is so "efficient" that students can become a doctor in a three years and an engineer in two.

Chavez is a friendly contact to the gorillas from Columbia, and also had a good relationship with the Saddam Hussein.

Chavez has fostered a relationship with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and there are now Iranian missiles pointed towards the U.S. from Venezuela.

Venezuala has nationalized oil, gas, and banking industries.

Chavez has threatened the lives of politicians that dares to run against him and their families. He has also taken part in kidnappings of other politician and other politician families.

“This is who Dolores Huerta admires.  This is what she's out preaching we should be more like.  This is the woman that the President just honored yesterday with the Medal of Freedom,” Glenn said.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
