Gasp! Romney calls doughnut a 'chocolate goody'

Stop the presses… Mitt Romney is so out of touch he doesn’t know what a doughnut is. Romney just sealed his fate – he cannot be president of the United States.

The left must be more than a little desperate because they are having a field day over some comments Romney made at an event in which he referred to a chocolate doughnut as a ‘chocolate goody.’ Perish the thought.

“All right. So, here's Mitt Romney, and they're making fun of him for not being ‘one of the people’ and not knowing what a doughnut is,” Glenn said.

Glenn played some of Romney’s comment on radio this morning, and it is truly offensive.

ROMNEY: Thank you. Garrett, would you see that one of those chocolate… chocolate goodies finds its way into our lives?

As the son of a baker, Glenn has every right to be terribly offended by Romney’s earth shattering gaffe. “Does he like doughnuts? Let's say the worst thing we find out – and this is just the tip of the iceberg, this is his Jeremiah Wright moment – he has a pattern of being around people that don't like doughnuts. Okay.”

“If a guy turns out to hate doughnuts, I would rather have the doughnut – as a son of a baker for generations – rather have a guy who hated doughnuts in office than hated America,” Glenn decided.

As usual, the left has managed to turn this into a wealth issue. Obviously Romney doesn’t know what a doughnut is because he is rich, and, as a result, he is woefully out of touch with the American people. That makes sense.

“I'm pretty sure he's had a doughnut,” Glenn said. And if he hasn’t, it is safe to say it’s not because he is wealthy.

“Is there any doubt that I'm not a poor man,” Glenn asked. “I've had a doughnut in the last 10 days. Doughnuts exist in the rich world.”

“Yes, they do,” Pat agreed. “The only difference between Mitt and poor people is he can buy more doughnuts than they can.”

If this moment proves anything, it’s that Romney is probably not the coolest guy in the world. But we have dealt with a ‘cool’ president for three and a half years, and we all know how well that has turned out.

“I would rather have a guy who's nerdy enough to not know what a doughnut is because he's been looking at, you know, financial reports and studying the economy than a guy who's living the life of Leonardo DiCaprio, which is what we currently have,” Glenn said. “How is that working out?”

And if we are on the topic of being out of touch – isn’t President Obama the one running commercials with Anna Wintour, the ‘devil’ in the Devil Wears Prada?

Or what about when the Obama’s talked about their favorite meal being steak and arugula. Arugula… really?

“My wife and I were having some arugula just the other night,” Glenn joked. “It's really – it’s really amazing, just amazing.”

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
