All the reasons Buck Sexton is happy he's not a liberal

Below is a transcript of this segment:

There’s a fascinating phenomenon that happens every time an election approaches. Real issues get pushed aside, and fake issues suddenly appear out of nowhere and hog all the airtime. There’s something of a scientific name for this. It’s a special phenomenon. I think we’ll call it “don’t look too closely at our craptastic policies effect,” or something like that. It’s classic misdirection.

We saw this in 2012. Actual wars were raging around the globe, but the war on women appeared out of thin air and took precedence. Benghazi schmenghazi, there’s binders full of women to save. The left loves to talk about fake issues rather than real ones. I can’t blame them. I mean, imagine what it’s like being a liberal and trying to defend your policies.

Your message to the public basically boils down to hey, you’re incompetent. You can’t build a business without government. You can’t earn a pay raise without government. You need government to set your thermostat, to choose your car, to pay for your health insurance. You can’t be trusted with firearms, no. You don’t know what the right foods are to eat—kale, or actually not kale anymore apparently. You’re a petulant little child, more or less, incapable of sound decision-making. That’s what the left, that’s what the liberals offer you, so they want to decide for you. That’s inspiring stuff.

And then the irony, literally the only time the left veers from control is when it comes to killing babies. They’re totally cool on just leaving that one up to whomever. Hey, you’re too dumb to get off minimum wage, but we’ll leave the whole baby living or dying thing up to you, up to individual discretion. So yeah, I’m so glad I’m not a liberal. It would get really tiring defending all of this stuff. That’s why they deflect.

Take abortion and the conversation about it that we’re having right now. There’s no defense to cutting up an unborn baby on a pie plate while discussing how much money you can charge for each body part like Planned Parenthood does. By the way, there’s another horrific video out today. It shows them literally cutting up a baby into pieces and casually chatting about how much money they’ll get out of it. So, abortion is itself indefensible; however, they repeat over and over again the mantra, a woman has a right to her own body, over and over. It takes the focus off the actual policy, and it shifts it to a fake one.

Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss the Left's current efforts to rid the U.S. military of "extremism," Democrats' push to separate President Joe Biden from the nuclear codes, and how conservatives can use government to battle the far-left, their policies, and their efforts to control Americans.

Crenshaw called the military's efforts to rid their ranks of extremism, "so obviously and clearly politically motivated," as the entire premise is based on reports that some active service members and veterans participated in the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol.

"Mathematically, that's not a good indication of where active duty military stand or where veterans stand more broadly," Crenshaw said of the generalization that military personnel are extremists. "And I thought we were against that kind of profiling. Right? I thought that was against the liberal values that supposedly the Left stands for."

"But, Glenn, you know very well the Left is not liberal," he added. "The Left is very anti-liberal. And I think as conservatives, we have to say that more often. They have become genuinely authoritarian. Progressivism is not in sync with liberalism. All right? There's a big difference between an Alan Dershowitz liberal and a Democrat Party progressive. They're totally different."

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
