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.

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn explained why he wouldn't be surprised to see our supply chain collapse and empty shelves in America in the near future. Shortages are already wrecking our economy, China (where many of our goods are still made) is facing an energy shortage, and the Biden administration sure seems to be doing everything it can to make things worse.

Glenn noted a serious warning from American CEO Mike Beckham: "There's a major storm brewing in the supply chain," Beckham wrote on Twitter.

Thanks to China's centrally planned system, electricity shortages are causing huge delays in product manufacturing. In fact, some items are facing a 33 percent cut in production. "It could dramatically impact every [American's] life next year. But almost no one knows about it yet," Beckham warned.

Glenn went on to explain exactly what this means for you — and what you can do to prepare.

Every decision made by President Joe Biden has ended in "disaster," Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck.

O'Reilly joined the radio program to explain why he thinks there's only one "mechanism" Americans can use stop the Biden administration's mess.

"Give me one thing that [Biden] has done, just one, that's improved this nation. Everything that he has been involved with is a disaster. Everything from the COVID mandates, to the energy policies, to the economic policies, to the inflation, to Afghanistan, to the collapsing southern border, to the social woke business, to the denial of due process. Right across-the-board, there isn't anything this man has done, or stood for, that's improved America," O'Reilly said.

"But there is no mechanism to do anything about it until a year from this November: the midterm elections. That's the only mechanism that we have, under the Constitution. We elected this guy and he's there for four years. You neutralize him next November [2022], with the Republicans taking back the House and Senate, then he's done. [He] can't do anymore damage because you've got him in a hole. And he's not going to be proactive with executive orders. He's just going to stay there in his jammies for two more years. OK? So that's the only mechanism."

O'Reilly also tore into the corporate media for using its power to defend Gen. Mark Milley after news of his China calls broke. Is there any deterrence in American society anymore to keep our leaders and media in check?

"What does this say to the United States of America when you have two of the most powerful information agencies in the world — NBC, Comcast, and AT&T, CNN — actively deceiving you?" O'Reilly said. "They know what they're doing. And yet there is absolutely no way for anyone to hold them accountable other than not watching them, which has, of course, happened. You know they have no audience. But just the corruption level of the information flow to the American people is at an all-time high. We have never had a worse media in the history of this republic."
