Progressives: Pro-choice on abortion, anti-choice on EVERYTHING else

The 'official' Democratic Party platform now states that they "strongly and unequivocally support Roe v. Wade and a woman's right to make decisions regarding her pregnancy, including a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay."

So, just how "pro-choice" are the Democrats?

In an effort to learn more about the party's platform, Reason TV wanted to investigate what the Democrats mean exactly when they say "choice." Glenn played the amazing audio of Reason asking the delegates to explain their stance on "choice" this morning on radio.

Given their strong statements on choice, their stance on food choice, school choice, even light-bulb choice, may surprise you:

When asked about whether or not they were pro-choice, the initial response of all of those shown in the video is "yes."

Here are a a few examples of the initial responses:

"I am absolutely pro-choice."

"Yes, it's a woman's right to choose what she wants to do with her body."

"Yes, a woman should have a right to choose based on her doctor and her family."

But, as Reason tried to interject a little common sense into the conversation, the delegates stances seemed to shift.

For example, when one delegate is questioned about their stance on choice in regards to transfats, one delegate said this:

"I think a lot of people make harmful decisions, there's alcohol, there's cigarette smoking, and so I understand the government trying to intervene because the American taxpayer pays a lot of money for fat people."

So this delegate finds Coca-Cola to be a threat to your body, but abortion is a healthy decision?

Glenn pointed out that it is well documented that massive psychological damage can occur to patients receiving abortions - but the left doesn't want to talk about that.

"People should only be allowed to make good choices," another delegated responded in Reason video.

Of course, they fail to consider who gets to decide what is a "good choice" and a "bad choice."

When asked if consumers should have the right to choose what kind of lightbulbs they want to purchase, the delegates quickly became anti-choice again:

"No, they shouldn't because if they're polluting the Earth, it's going to last longer than their lifetime."

Another noted that even if you "prefer the warm glow" or "are that particular about lighting" (which Glenn very much is) it shouldn't "come before the safety and future of our planet."

Sorry, Glenn.

How about right to work states? Surely if the delegates are pro-choice and, like we keep hearing, "fighting for the middle-class," they are all for an individual getting to choose whether or not they want to join a union, right?

When asked if being in a union should be the choice of the worker, one woman actually did respond, "It should be a choice not to be in a union."

Unfortunately, once she heard the phrase "Right to Work," which the left leaning media and Democrat politicians hammered during the Wisconsin drama she quickly changed her tune.

"No, I ‑‑ well, a choice not to be in a union, but I think unions do good.  So I would choose ‑‑ uh…I guess not.  I'm not in favor of 'Right to Work'."

Not surprisingly, the delegates weren't in favor of school choice either.

When asked again at the end of the video, a few of the delegates had a bit of a different response:

"I'm definitely pro choice when it comes to people's bodies."

"I'm pro choice on everything about everything about everything - on an informed choice, and government has a role in that."

"I'm pro-intervention."

"That is amazing," Glenn responded to the unbelievable audio - later adding, "That should be sent to all of our college age students."

It turns out the Democrats are small government - but only on one issue.

"They actually appeal to people's small government sensibilities in the abortion argument," Stu pointed out.

It shows the superiority of the argument conservatives make on almost every topic, because that's what the left turns to when they need it.

Telling the government to 'get out of your business,' or in this case your bedroom, connects with Americans.

From food and job shortages to the prices of building materials "skyrocketing," the world is currently moving into what could be the "perfect storm" for politicians to push for a universal basic income, explained Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"We really need to look at the economy and be prepared for what is coming," Glenn said. "I feel like my job is to warn you of the things that are coming and, when I can, give you ways to navigate around. But at least so you can hear the warning and decide yourself what you're going to do with that."

Glenn explained that now, for the first time, there is a shortage of starter homes and building supplies just as increasing numbers of millennials are in the market. Also, analysts are predicting that shortages of food items and products such as pork, polystyrene, and chlorine could send prices soaring. Then there's the matter of unemployment, kicked off by the COVID-19 pandemic and likely to worsen because of the technological revolution, there are going to be fewer and fewer jobs for people to do.

"We are creating this perfect storm, right now, where universal basic income is going to be embraced by people," Glenn warned. "It's just this nasty cycle that we're beginning, and we're watching it unfold right in front of us."

More than 100 business leaders and CEOs from some of the world's largest corporations recently met during a Zoom meeting to discuss how they can band together to fight "election integrity laws," like the voting law recently passed in Georgia.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck explained how this government-corporation partnership is not only proof of fascism, but it is also demonstrative of how our lives will be under The Great Reset: government and large corporations will work together to set the rules, and the freedoms of the individual American will be squashed.

"I want you to understand ... everything that they have ever said about, 'oh, it's a conspiracy theory' about The Great Reset, you can throw that in the garbage now," Glenn began. "Something happened this weekend that is absolutely unprecedented. I have done this job, for ... I don't even know how many years, almost 50 years, and I've never seen anything like this.

"People that were on the [Zoom] call, they talked about potential ways to show how they opposed the legislation, including ... delaying investments in states. That's blackmail," Glenn continued.

"So these corporations, they're going to act as a — what? A secondary government? ... I don't know. I didn't elect the CEO of Merck. Did you?" he said.

"Corporations [are] openly meeting and coordinating efforts to change laws," Glenn added. "This is fascism, guys! Fascism is when government and corporations work hand in hand. That is fascism."

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."
