Hillary totally hearts FDR’s Four Freedoms — don’t buy into it

Hillary Clinton held her first big presidential rally in New York City over the weekend. Her supporters gathered on Roosevelt Island’s Four Freedoms Park for the event, and the location tied directly into the content of the speech. While Hillary embraced the progressive freedoms that defined FDR’s presidency as an example of government’s power to help the people, Glenn explained the real effect “freedom from want” can have on a people.

"You know, President Roosevelt's four freedoms are a testament to our nation's unmatched aspirations and a reminder of our unfinished work at home and abroad. His legacy lifted up a nation and inspired presidents who followed," Hillary said during the speech.

"No," Glenn corrected. "It's called the Great Depression here in the United States. It's only called the depression worldwide. Because it lasted longer here because of the progressive policies of Franklin Roosevelt."

"The four freedoms take us and reverse the Constitution. It makes it from a charter of negative liberties to a charter of positive liberties. The things the government must do. And that, by the way, is exactly the charter of positive liberties that you would find enshrined in the communist constitution of the former Soviet Union," Glenn said.

"[The Four Freedoms were] FDR's way of completely reversing the Constitution. He said, you have the freedom of speech. The freedom of worship. The freedom from fear. And the freedom from want. The last two don't exist. You cannot have freedom from fear," Glenn said.

"It would be nice if none of us were afraid. But no government couldn't make it so that you're not afraid. Because if they're big enough to make you not afraid of anything, they're big enough to make you afraid of something, usually them," Glenn said.

"Freedom from want. There will always be the poor among us. How do you get rid of the freedom from want? In the nicest utopian society, the Pilgrims tried to do this - it ended in cannibalism. The Pilgrims tried to share. They tried to live the Gospel principles. It cannot be done by man alone. It must be done by God. And the Pilgrims came over and they tried to do it. It didn't work. They gave up. Because what the Pilgrims found out was, there was even in such a morally steadfast group as the Pilgrims, once everybody put their stuff in a pile and took according to their needs, once that happened, they realized there are people in society that it just won't work. So the whole thing fell apart. The same thing was tried down in Virginia. In Jamestown. The Indians actually fenced those guys in and said you're a disease. They were so screwed up. But they started with this idea that we're all going to share. We'll take according to our needs. So they tried the socialist thing. It ended in cannibalism," Glenn continued.

"Freedom from want doesn't work. Freedom from fear will make you afraid of the government. And then freedom of worship. That's not what we have. We have freedom of religion. Not freedom of worship. There is a difference. Beyond that, the last freedom is freedom of speech. We don't have that anymore. Because you can't say what's really on your mind because of political correctness," he concluded.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
