MSNBC politicizes Romney’s efforts to help people

It really takes an extra special effort to spin handing out emergency supplies and donating to the Red Cross into an attack, but MSNBC is of course up to the challenge. When Mitt Romney decided not to stump and instead turned it into a relief effort, MSNBC was so not down with the choice.

"I can't take it. I can't take it," Glenn said. "If you don't do what FEMA said, if you don't do what the Red Cross said, forget about it. I have news for you. We've already loaded up trucks. Mercury One has trucks ready to go. As soon as the roads are clear ‑‑ and it may be going out today. As soon as the roads are clear, we have trucks that were already loaded. What are you talking to me about? And we're doing it on our own. We don't need the Red Cross and we don't need FEMA. That is the way Americans have always done it. But look, if you don't play a game exactly the way that you're supposed to play in this big federal system, you're crazy ‑‑ you're crazy. You're a dangerous ‑‑ you're a dangerous individual."

"I swear to you if MSNBC, if the ‑‑ if Jesus were running against Obama ‑‑ and I know that's tough because then there would be two Messiahs running. But if Jesus were running against Obama, NBC's report would be, 'And in Columbus, Ohio today, Jesus of Galilee, while on the campaign trail, calmed a nasty weather system that was threatening the residents of the area. Even though the Red Cross has specifically never asked for the seas to be calm. All the Red Cross wants is cash donations. They don't need people changing the weather patterns. After calming the weather in Columbus, Jesus was approached by a blind man and healed him. Is this just a coincidence that this all happened in Ohio? I don't think so. Jesus is clearly politicizing the healthcare debate and taking a swipe at ObamaCare at the same time here. You'll remember it wasn't long ago that Jesus was kicked out of his own country for performing similar stunts. Plus many on the campaign trail are reminding us today that Jesus was actually born in Bethlehem. And as you know, that makes him not a natural born citizen and thus ineligible to be president. But there's something else. Bethlehem is also located in Palestinian territory, and electing a man from that area would send a very clear message to our closest ally in the region, Israel, that they no longer have our support from this so‑called Jesus character.'"

Watch some of the manufactured outrage below. First, Andrea Mitchell:

She said, "And then you've got the image of Mitt Romney doing what they say is not a campaign event in the same space they were going to hold a campaign event. They say they are making collections for hurricane and storm relief. Chris Cillizza, first you. We checked with the Red Cross. The Red Cross said, well, they are always grateful for donations but this is not what they need or want. That they always tell people please donate money because we have packagers, wholesalers, they have their own distribution system and to now get these canned goods from the Romney event in Ohio and have to first package it. Used clothes they have to clean. They can't go directly to victims. So what they need is donations of blood and donations of money. It does seem like a thinly veiled. Why Ohio? Why choose Ohio for storm relief?"

"Why in Ohio? Why not in Pennsylvania? Why not in New Jersey? Why in Ohio? Well, he happens to be in Ohio, A, he has the ‑‑ he has everything already set up in Ohio, B, and you can put it on a truck and ship it out. I mean, are you really kidding me?" Glenn said.

And then Martin Bashir:

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?
