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."

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:
