Decision 2012: Former Member of 'The Choom Gang' vs. Alleged Hair Cutter

This morning on radio Glenn took an in-depth look at the main attacks the Obama campaign has used so far against Mitt Romney. It’s a pretty sad lineup of negatives - either false or not even bad in the first place. The problem with negative personal politics is it doesn’t work against a truly decent human being.

“Look at the sheer desperation of Obama and the Democrats. They have been reduced to just doing nothing but repeating lies over and over and over again,” Glenn said this morning.

Whether or not you agree with Mitt Romney’s policies, there is one thing all honest Americans must admit: his record shows him to be a man of good character. Unlike the actions of the current White House resident, Romney’s past actions and policies match his words. He isn’t saying one thing, and secretly (or seemingly secretly in Obama’s case) sending messages to Vladimir Putin, Glenn pointed out.

“So, let's see here. In his late teens Mitt Romney gave a kid a haircut against his will which they now say didn't happen, while Barack Obama was being mentored by a heart core, American hating communist and smoking dope, doing drugs to the extent that they named their drug gang The Choom Gang and that's all verifiable. We have photos of that,” Glenn said. “Then in the early 80s, when Romney took his trip in the car with the dog safely secured to the roof, what was Barack Obama doing?

In Barack Obama’s own book, this is how he describes his lifestyle in the early 80s:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Our Marxist professors and structural feminists and punk rock performance poets. We smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets. At night in the dorms, we discussed neocolonialism, Franz Fanon, Eurocentrism, and patriarchy. When we ground out our cigarettes in the hallway carpet or set our stereos so loud that the walls began to shake, we were resisting bourgeois society's stifling conventions.

So while the Obama campaign and the mainstream media hyperventilate over Mitt Romney’s dog being securely fastened to the roof on a family vacation and the alleged haircut he gave a classmate, President Obama was hanging out with Marxist professors, destroy property with his cigarette butts (so much for the ‘green’ movement), disturbing the peace with his music, and resisting the bourgeois.

“This is so unAmerican and, yet, at the same time, kind of sad and pathetic and laughable,” Glenn said.

Glenn pointed to the next lie Obama tried to spread about Romney.

“Then they try to tell the American people the amazing lie that Mitt Romney pays less in income tax than the average American,” he said.

Here is the accusation that Gene Spurling made about Romney’s taxes:

“They are actually paying less taxes or a lower tax right than hard working families who are out there working as nurses, as police officers, as construction workers. This is a basic issue of trust and fairness.”

Which not only isn’t true, Glenn pointed out, but shows complete ignorance on behave of the Obama administration on taxes. That, or they are treating the American people like idiots.

“Here's the guy who is on the economic council and he's trying to explain tax rates where he clearly doesn't understand any of it. As we've pointed out and I'll speak slowly for Gene, you can't compare income tax to capital gains tax,” Glenn said.

Glenn corrected the error and noted that the average hard working American is paying around 12.8% in income taxes, while Romney pays around 15%, before moving on to the next lie. This one from Joe Biden:

“We see a future where those rights are expanded, not diminished, where racial profiling is a thing of the past. Where access to the ballot is expanded and unencumbered. Did you think we would be fighting these battles again?”

“No,” Glenn commented upon hearing the audio, “and we’re not.”

The only people that seem to be worried about this “battle” is the Obama administration, who, as Glenn described it, is ‘shadow boxing.’

“They are so desperate for ammunition that they resort to flat out proven lies,” Glenn said.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
