Progressive MSNBC host doubles down, admits they’re against individual liberty

Well, Melissa Harris-Perry decided to double down on her comments claiming that American's needed to break away from the idea that kids belong to the family and need to embrace a collective attitude towards children. Glenn played the latest audio on radio this morning along with another cable news host who is showing the true colors of the progressives.

Harris-Perry said, "I can see that some people are generally upset about what I actually said, especially this phrase: We have to break through our private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families. So let me just say that this, I stand by that statement.  Families have first and primary responsibility for their children.  The private sphere of our homes and families deserves a great deference in policy and in practice only in the most extreme circumstances of violence or deprivation should institutions remove children from families.  But I believe our children are not our private property.  They are not just extensions of ourselves.  They are independent individual beings.  Allow me to quote the poet Khalil Gibran: 'Our children are not your children.  They are the sons and daughters of life's longing for itself.  They come through you but not from you.  And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.'"

She continued, "Listen, this is an existential argument. People can disagree and one which has been more influential in poetry than in policy. And honestly remote philosophical debate rarely drives relentless news cycles. Unless, unless it is the core philosophical issue of our entire history, the balance between individual rights and collective responsibilities. And that is my bet about what is happening. This isn't about me wanting to take your kids. And this isn't even about whether children are property. This is about whether we as a society expressing our collective will through our public institutions, including our government, have a right to impinge on individual freedoms in order to advance a common good."

Glenn told audiences not to dismiss this as a clever apology, but to recognize that she is doubling down on her radical comments.

"Don't dismiss this as a clever way to apologize.  Don't dismiss this as a clever way to get out of what she said.  She is telling you exactly what she believes.  'I believe that the family belongs to the collective.'"

He explained that Harris-Perry only claimed that in "extreme" cases would government interfere, yet for months conservative values and view points have been portrayed as extreme.

"Remember, you're a TEA Party member, you're an extremist; you believe in the Second Amendment, you're an extremist; you believe in the Bible, you're an extremist; you're a Christian, you're extremist.  Unless you redefine the word "extremist," which they already are doing.  And then it's only in the cases of extremism that we would ever want to break up those families.  As long as you teach them exactly what's good for the collective, as long as you teach them everything that those of us who have power in the collective, we're not going to break you up.  Why?  You're doing our job for us.  You're teaching them that they ‑‑ this is the collective, that they don't have really any rights, that they don't have anything given from God, that they have all of these things given to them by the government.  Why should we break that little system up?  Only in the case if they're with some extremists."

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
