(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.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
