Bernie Sanders Rambles on About How Uncompassionate Americans Are

Bernie Sanders recently complained about America's uncompassionate policy of not guaranteeing health care to all people as a right. Glenn shared his reaction on his radio program Monday.

"Our rights come from our creator. Now, how do we get a right of health care from our creator? Huh. We don't," Glenn said. "I'm trying to think of any way you can interpret anything in nature to tell you that you have a right to health care."

Listen to the clip above or read the transcript below.

GLENN: All right. Now, this might not sound like we're compassionate to those who want jade eggs and to eat crickets. (But that's only if you listen to Bernie Sanders.) Here's Bernie Sanders talking about how "not compassionate" Americans are.

BERNIE: The United States of America is the only major country on earth that does not guarantee health care to all people as a right.

PAT: Dang proud of that.

BERNIE: Canada does it. Every major country in Europe does it.

STU: And, no, they don't.

PAT: First of all, Canada is not a major country. Can we get that straight?

STU: Oh, wow. Wait.

GLENN: Alternate fact. Stu is --

STU: I'm very upset about that.

JEFFY: Now you're hurting Stu's feelings.

STU: You have to remember -- notice the words he uses: Guarantees health care. No, they don't. They absolutely don't guarantee health care. They guarantee you to believe they have insurance. Whether you can get care or not is a completely different issue.

PAT: Yeah. Yeah.

GLENN: If health care around the world -- like the ancient Chinese secret, if it was so good, capitalism would embrace it.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: The market would run towards it. If it was so great, we would all run towards it. It's not good.

Here's what it's good for: It's good for the very lowest of poverty levels because they get something. Well, we already -- they already got something. They already can go to the hospital. Now, that's breaking the hospital system.

But let's fix that problem. Okay?

So it's good for the very bottom --

STU: We also have Medicaid, by the way, which is a giant government system specifically designed to help those people to get insurance.

GLENN: Right. So there you go.

You already have the bottom ladder. The top of the ladder, they don't care. They'll get health care -- they'll just pay for it. They'll just go out -- I need to go see a doctor. Okay. I'll write a check.

So the top of the health care, they don't care. Who does it hurt? Everyone in between. That's what socialized medicine does. Hurts everyone in between. It's bad.

All right. Anyway...

BERNIE: Believe that health care is a right of all Americans whether they're rich or they're poor.

GLENN: Stop. This is why it is important to understand that we are based on the Declaration of Independence.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Our rights come from our creator.

Now, how do we get a right of health care from our creator?

Huh. We don't. Huh. There's no way -- I'm trying to think of any way you can interpret anything in nature to tell you that you have a right to health care.

PAT: May I also ask how it's compassionate for any country forced to provide health care for anyone else, how is that compassion? It's not.

GLENN: No.

PAT: I've been forced. I didn't volunteer that money. That's not a compassionate act.

GLENN: And it makes you less compassionate.

PAT: It's ridiculous.

GLENN: Our nurses -- our nurses and doctors here in America I believe are the most compassionate, some of them in the world.

PAT: Oh, they're great.

JEFFY: Absolutely.

PAT: They're really great.

GLENN: They're great. And why? Because they have a desire to do it.

PAT: And the things they do are incredible.

GLENN: Remarkable. Remarkable.

PAT: And at least in our recent experience, they all did it with such professionalism and compassion.

GLENN: Now, you could go over to the Netherlands and say, "Well, the Netherlands, they had better health care." Well, in some ways they might. In some ways, they might. But can we just look at the Netherlands here for a second. If you look at Sweden, up until recently, it was the most homogenized group of people of all time.

Let's see. They're all white. Blond hair, blue-eyed with the same background in culture. It's not hard to move one group of people, who are all exactly alike, and fit them into this little package. Now that they have to serve two cultures, it's completely falling apart.

America is the entire world coming together. It doesn't work. It's harder to do things in America. There is no one who is as diverse as this country is, in thought and in lifestyle. And that's good.

Why should I celebrate diversity in everything, except when it really counts?

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Celebrate answers in math with Common Core. No. No.

PAT: There's more.

BERNIE: Should people, because they're Americans, be able to go to the doctor when they need to, be able to go into a hospital because they're Americans?

VOICE: We're a compassionate society.

BERNIE: No, we're not a compassionate society. In terms of our relationship to poor and working people, our record is worse than virtually any other country on earth.

PAT: That is unbelievable. That's unbelievable.

STU: Should they be able to go to the doctors when they want to? That's the exact thing socialized medicine can't accomplish. There's long-term waiting.

GLENN: You die. If you want socialized medicine, we have it. Are we compassionate to our veterans?

PAT: No.

GLENN: That's socialized medicine. There it is. That's what -- when they finally kill the free market and we only have a single-payer health care system, that's what it is. That is the least compassionate.

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.

​Facebook BOYCOTT: Major corporations demand MORE social media censorship

A Facebook anti-hate campaign called "Stop Hate for Profit" is gaining momentum, leading large companies like Patagonia, North Face, REI, and Ben & Jerry's to pull advertising revenue if Facebook doesn't do more to "stop the spread of hateful lies and dangerous propaganda on its platform."

But, what is considered "hateful"? It's anything that goes against the mob, and they won't stop with Facebook. Any voices that speak out against the progressive narrative will soon be censored and silenced. The more this campaign grows, the more our freedom of speech diminishes.

Do you recognize your country anymore?

Me neither.

Not only is history being made, it's being rewritten and our history is being lost to Marxist revolutionaries as statues are toppled and Merriam-Webster changes our language. Does this passage from George Orwell's 1984 seem eerily similar to our day?:

"Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right." 1984, George Orwell

In the digital age, book burning is unnecessary. "Inappropriate" material just evaporates into the ether with a simple keystroke. The days I've been warning about for years are finally upon us and we need to be able to call on the wisdom of our Founding Fathers and other brilliant patriots and if you are relying on digital copies, you could find yourself out of luck.

Knowledge truly is power and we are now in the time where we need all the resources we can get, so I put together this list of the books you HAVE to have in your personal libraries. Along with these selections, I earnestly advise that you keep a journal. Your personal history is powerful and being able to preserve your thoughts and feelings for your posterity to learn from is an invaluable addition to any library.

I'd also suggest you look into Mercury One's "Leadership Training Program," the tools learned will be invaluable as you are able to inspect and learn from original sources as well as being taught by passionate historians. Stay tuned on this front, we have some exciting announcements coming soon.

You ARE the audience that will save the Republic and you have been prepared over the years for the role you need to play. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the people that Alexis de Tocqueville wrote about. America is good because it's people are good.

Keep up the good fight and God bless!
