The left "celebrates" 40 years of Roe vs. Wade

The 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade is this week and groups on both sides of the issue have been doing different things to bring attention to the abortion debate. Earlier this week, Glenn spoke to pro-life activist Lila Rose about the great work she is doing at Live Action and the March for Life. Today, Glenn highlighted a more disturbing side of the anniversary.

Abortion advocates seem to be "celebrating" the anniversary in rather creepy ways…Here's one example:

So…apparently abortion is a middle aged male?

Irony alert.

Aren't pro-life conservatives constantly being accused of a "war on women" and abortion is a women's rights issue? Conservative men are constantly maligned for even taking a stance on an issue that couldn't possibly understand? So who better to be the representative figure of abortion…than a creepy man who appears to be hitting on all women?

"It is so disturbing," Glenn said after hearing the ad. "He is talking about Roe versus Wade and the way they're ‑‑ I mean, they've made it a sexual commercial."

Not only have that sexualized the sensitive issue — remember, the debate is over whether or not abortion is murder — they've turned it into a joke. This video was designed to make you laugh.

"I particularly enjoyed the use of the word "baby" so many times," Stu pointed out. "'Hey, baby, we killed you.'"

"I just, I find it amazing that they thought that was appropriate to take a guy and make him sound like, "Yeah, baby.  We're going to get some lovin' now," when this is the argument against it is that you don't kill children for birth control.  And that's what ‑‑ this whole thing just felt that way," Glenn said. 

But that's just one of the less disturbing pieces of media to come out of the activists on the left side of the issue.

A new documentary is being released on the four doctors left in the United States still perform late [3rd] term abortions.

"Who in their right mind would do that?" Glenn asked.

"I'm surprised they are doing it," Stu answered. "They are doing it like, we're the fantastic four.  Like, they're like profiling them like they're heroes essentially of course."

One would think that doctors involved in any documentary focused on such a controversial issue would be very clinically based and well spoken — not the case. Stu played audio from an NPR show called Shades of Grey that displayed the complete disconnect from reality.

If these individuals in this audio and the documentary are in favor of making late term abortions legal, it seems like they would make sure the issue was discussed in a light where is leaves you asking questions or less polarized.That's not really what's going on.

"I don't think you'll feel that way when you hear these clips," Pat commented.

Remember, this is from NPR and brought to you by your tax dollars:

VOICE:  Of course there is another aspect to this and, umm, you know, I always do kind of in a way have a moment's thought of thinking of the end of this fetus and that I think of this as a life necessarily but it's a loss. 

As Glenn, Pat and Stu point out, what exactly is one losing if not a life? Tissue? Cysts? Cells? Do they not make life?

And on that note, they don't "necessarily" think of it as a human life…okay…would this doctor liked to be described as not "necessarily" a murderer? In order to perform a procedure like this, there should probably be a very definitive line, right? If your doctor tells you that you don't "necessarily" have cancer, you're probably going to want to confirm that before taking any actions moving forward.

"What's it going to grow into?" Pat asked rhetorically. "It's not ‑‑ you don't think of it as life necessarily.  What is it?"

In a different clip a nurse discusses her experience with partial birth abortion:

NURSE:  We have a sonogram in the room and one person is in charge of manning the sonogram.  So the transducer is on the mom's belly.  So you can see calcified structures.  So skull, ribcage, arms and legs and that kind of thing. 

 

Interviewer:  Doctors learn to look at very gruesome things.  It is the nature particularly of being a surgeon. 

 

NURSE:  You break the bag of water and the umbilical cord gets kinked and the infant dies pretty quickly so that the procedure's being done on, you know, a dead ‑‑ a dead fetus.  I reached in with the forceps and the sonogram was on one of the limbs, I believe it was the arm and so I pulled and I pulled and put it in a dish.  And he moved the sonogram over and the heart was still beating. 

"Imagine if I came over and I put something around you or your child at any age or your grandfather who has Alzheimer's and doesn't really understand and I put a chain or a clamp around his arm and I pull it off his body," Glenn said after hearing the audio. "What do you think grandpa, with no quality of life, doesn't really know what's going on, has Alzheimer's.  Do you think Grandpa feels any pain?  That doesn't ‑‑ that doesn't seem to bother her."

And remember, many of these people on the far left are the same people that will organize a protest to protect a tree or won't let you transport lobster because of the "comfort level".

"And they don't care what the baby experiences," Pat said. "They don't care."

Remember, this is also what groups like Draw The Line and The Center for Reproductive Rights consider to be "women's rights" and "reproductive rights". These groups are endorsed by individuals like Meryl Streep, Kevin Bacon, and others who are paid millions to star in our favorite movies.

Stu noted that the woman in that clip was clearly disturbed by the experience and was very uncomfortable with it.

"But she at the end came — she's still doing it.  She's still doing abortions after that experience," he said.

Here's another clip where a woman discusses having seven abortions:

VOICE: Where you are now I've been.  It took me years to get to where I'm at now.  I've had seven abortions; I have three kids.  Take the time.  Think about your decision.  Weigh out your pros and cons.  Having a child is not an easy chore. 

"That's why you have seven abortions because babies, they're not easy chores," Stu said disgusted. "That's the way to look at a newborn life?  It's a chore, and it's not an easy one."

The lack of value for life in these audio clips, to put it lightly, is wildly disturbing. Glenn recalled a line from Les Miserables that puts, not just the late term abortion debate, but the entire abortion debate into a powerful perspective. At the end of the movie, when Jean Valjean is about to die, he and his adopted child, who he has sacrificed everything for, have a moving exchange.

"He knows he's going to die, and he says ‑‑ such a simple line.  "You're the best of my life."  That gets me every time," Glenn said. Because when you stop and think of it, all of the trouble that you might be having with your kids, all the trouble that you might have had with the kids or all the trouble that you are going to have with your kids, when you stop, you will look and say, "You're the best of my life."  And when somebody can look at a child and say, "You're not an easy chore," wow.  I don't even begin to relate."

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?
