What is the difference between a Social Democrat and a Progressive?

In advance of the Tuesday night Democratic debate, CNN invited Glenn and other recognizable figures to submit a question for the whole group of candidates.

On radio Tuesday morning, Glenn shared with listeners the question he chose to submit and why.

"Can you tell me the difference between a Progressive and a Social Democrat? And tell me the difference between those two and a Constitutionalist," Glenn said.

Watch the clip below to find out what Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders said, which prompted this question.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors.

GLENN: Hillary Clinton says she's an early 20th century progressive. Bernie Sanders says he's a social Democrat. Can you tell me the difference between a progressive and a social Democrat, and tell me the difference between those two and a constitutional. Maybe I should rewrite that question for them to kind of dummy it up a little bit for them.

But, I mean, she has said she is an early 20th century progressive. He's just come out recently and said, "I'm a social Democrat." I don't know if the average person knows what those two mean. And I can't tell you what the difference is between a social Democrat and a progressive, and I've studied progressives. What's the difference between the two? And what's the difference between a social Democrat and a regular Democrat?

PAT: Yeah. It's worse than social Democrat, it's Democratic socialist.

GLENN: Ah, you're right. You're right.

PAT: Which is right?

STU: Another question I would like -- asked. This is the type of things they would do to Republicans, but on the other side. Do you think it should be legal to abort a baby one minute before birth? And if not, when is the line? I would like to know --

GLENN: They'll never ask that.

PAT: No, they won't.

STU: But that's the exact type of thing they do with rape and incest. Here's the biggest outlier, the smallest percentage of abortions, can you defend that position? You know, the worst possible crime, would you still say no to abortion.

GLENN: Yeah. John Wayne Gacy walks in. And he's -- he needs to buy a gun. But you don't know it's John Wayne Gacy.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: Do you sell him the gun?

PAT: Right.

GLENN: What? No. Well, of course, it's John Wayne Gacy. So, but you don't know that. Okay. So I don't have a problem. So you're fine with him going and molesting and murdering children?

STU: Right. That's what they do. And I want to see Hillary Clinton come out and say, yes, one minute before birth, you can abort that baby.

PAT: She would never say that. She would turn it around on Republican positions.

GLENN: The only one I'm interested in hearing is Bernie Sanders.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I'm really interested in hearing Bernie Sanders. Do you have any of the audio? I didn't hear it yesterday.

STU: You want his album?

PAT: Oh, his songs are good.

GLENN: I got it. I don't want that. No.

PAT: Are you sure?

GLENN: Yes, I'm positive. What I'm looking for is where he's talking about being a social Democrat.

PAT: Yeah, Chuck Todd asked him about it the other day.

CHUCK: You joked about the idea when people call you a socialist, you say, yes, I'm going to make everybody wear the same color pajamas.

BERNIE: Especially you.

CHUCK: Especially me.

BERNIE: I have a pair of pajamas just for you.

CHUCK: I hear you. And then the other day, I noticed you said, you know what, don't use the word "socialist." I'm going to say I'm a progressive. Are you pushing back on that? Are you embracing, I'm a European socialist?

BERNIE: No. Look, when one of your Republican colleagues gets on the show, he'll say, are you a capitalist? Have you ever referred to them as a capitalist?

CHUCK: Yeah, are you a capitalist?

BERNIE: No. I'm a Democratic socialist.

PAT: Jeez. Isn't that amazing?

BERNIE: But what I mean, I've been elected as an independent throughout my political career. I am running now in the Democratic nomination process and will support -- I hope to win. I expect to win.

CHUCK: But you'll support the Democratic nominee?

BERNIE: I will.

GLENN: No. We can't have a president that sounds like you, Bernie. Your policies could be horrible; they could be wonderful. Most Americans will not get that far.

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests? 

Would you feel safe if your child attended a University that allowed pro-Hamas protests?

Is pro-Hamas rhetoric protected by the First Amendment?

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
