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.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
