Please explain: Tea Partiers hate progressive policies of Obama but love progressive policies of Trump?

People don't like that I cannot figure Trump supporters out.

Amazing how much the Tea Party people love debate and demand to be heard UNLESS, you disagree and believe a celebrity big government progressive is confusing at best and wrong for the country.

Then shut your mouth or else. Certainly that doesn't sound like what supporters of Obama did in 08/12!

While talking to a guy on air today who was a Obama supporter in '08, Lawrence from the Dana Show, who went to the Trump rally last night in Dallas and said friends and family members who voted for Obama in '08 were there as well, he wondered if anyone has learned anything over the last 8 years.

Well, lots of calls from the Trump zombies wanting me to retract what I said when I thought out loud and questioned: what explains your hatred for the progressive policies of Obama and yet your love for the progressive policies of Trump?

Is it possible that you except it from Trump and not from Obama because one is on your side? One is Republican and one is not? Is it possible that it really was all about race?

Maybe, because I can't think of any other reason that excuses such a huge flip-flop. This is not just some of the same things. This is almost all of the same things.

Tea Party people said they were for small government and the Constitution. An IRS that was under control. The fact that Obama really felt universal healthcare was viable we thought was nuts. We said no NSA spying, no executive orders, no flip-flopping, no arrogance and maybe some humility?

How about your disdain for voters that just refused to care about his past, his record and lack of specifics?

"Trump loves America and Obama doesn't." Funny.

While I think that may be accurate, it isn't what we marched for or anything that was a central issue. If it was just that, maybe we could have survived. But it was his policies, not his motivation.

In fact, when people said the Tea Partiers felt it was only that he was black, we all made a very strong case that it was the policies that mattered.

So is it race, Tea Partiers?

Let's get to specifics.

He is Obama except:

He is not a socialist - except he supports many socialist policies.

He is not a professor and community organizer.

He is rich although so is Obama now. He is white. Old?

Here is one comment from a listener that you should ponder.

Read this and think about it!

Glenn Beck is spot on! You hated Barack Obama’s cult-like followers, with their mindless stares of adoration, their impervious barrier between emotion and reason and their instant fury when confronted with the facts about his record, his history or his philosophy.

But you love it from Trump.

You hated Obama’s shallow, facile rhetoric, with its hollow promises and loose, lowest-common-denominator word-vomit disconnected from any real policy.

But you love it from Trump.

You hated how Obama was gleefully lying to credulous, low-information voters, filling them with empty promises of economic prosperity that would never come, based on plans that could never be achieved.

But you love it from Trump.

You hated how Obama lied about his positions on single-payer healthcare, gay marriage, gun control and abortion to get elected, knowing that if he ever revealed the truth about what he believed that he’d be unelectable.

But you love it from Trump.

You hated how Obama rode the wave of constant attention from the mainstream media into office, and how they played along with his game, draining the life out of every other candidate by describing him as an inevitable juggernaut, an unstoppable political force and a game-changer who was tapping into something deep and powerful in American political life.

But you love it from Trump.

You hated how Obama’s naive ignorance of the real and brutal world of international affairs was papered over by his hollow promises to make the world respect the United States again.

But you love it from Trump.

You hated Obama’s casual disdain for people who weren’t from a major city where, you know, all the rich, smart, educated, liberal people like him live.

But you love it from Trump.

You hated Obama’s elite credentialism, and how he yielded his Harvard and Columbia degrees to browbeat his aspiring-class opponents from outside the meritocracy, and how he used them to cow an already docile press.

But you love it from Trump.

You hated that smug, arrogant, sneering affect that took hold the moment he thought the cameras weren’t looking.

But you love it from Trump.

You hated Obama’s cadre of sleazy, weird, creepy advisers, with their combination of over-the-edge ideological fervor and their stench of petty corruption.

But you love it from Trump.

You hated Obama’s support for bail-outs, too-big-to-fail and big, taxpayer-funded government intervention in dying industries.

But you love it from Trump.

You hated his comfy alliance with Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and the odious Clinton crime family.

But you love it from Trump.

You hated his cavalier disdain for private property rights.

But you love it from Trump.

Everything that set your teeth on edge, and raised your hackles and made you loathe Barack Obama is there in Donald Trump. Every aspect of the con game Obama played on America in 2008 – the obsessive focus on one base issue (for Obama, the war in Iraq; for Trump, Mexicans), the cult-like obsession, the instant attacks on apostates, the willful ignorance of his history and his beliefs – is present in Trump.

Everything you despised in Obama is there.

But you love it from Trump.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

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.
