Glenn: Liberals Are Finally Skeptical of Government – What’s Happening to the Right?

People who are afraid of the Trump administration should remember that big government is always a threat – regardless of who is in power.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has compared Japanese-Americans who were held in internment camps during World War II to people now who are protected by the DREAM Act. Under the Obama administration, people gave their information to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which shields illegal immigrants brought to America under the age of 16.

“Welcome to a new feeling for those of you on the left: skepticism of government. … It’s where we all should be,” Glenn said on radio Wednesday.

Some people who felt safe under President Barack Obama now feel threatened by President Donald Trump, and vice versa. Government with too much control over our lives always threatens to swing to the other extreme, depending on who is in control.

“This is the way it happens where there is a wild swing of power and you swing away from the Constitution, either right or left; it doesn’t matter,” Glenn said.

He added, “There are people on the right who don’t get it either; they are letting government grow under their guy.”

NANCY: The Japanese-American patriots in our country who were interned into camps during World War II. While their family members were fighting for freedom for America and for the world in World War II, they were in camps. And they came for me. And now they're coming for the Dreamers. This is something that -- we owe these dreamers for their patriotism, their courage, their optimism, to come forward.

GLENN: Welcome. Welcome to a new feeling for those of you on the left. Skepticism of government. Welcome. It's where we all should be.

This is the problem with big government. Trump announced that he might rescind DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Since that time, there is a growing fear on the left that the information collected under this program might be used to find DACA recipients and deport them, or worse now, according to Nancy Pelosi.

There are 800,000 illegal immigrants who applied for temporary protection under the DACA program, that gave the government a ton of personal information: where they live, where they work, where they went to school. They gave them their photographs and fingerprints. They gave them everything.

Congratulations. Congratulations on trusting the government when your guy is in. See, this is the problem, and this is the way it happens when there is a wild swing of power and you swing away from the Constitution, either right or left. It doesn't matter. Power changes between the major parties. And that happens on a regular basis. And it's going to continue to happen unless we go into a new system. But for those who have preached that the government should not be entrusted or given access to your personal information, it's easy to say, "I told you so." But my better angels tell me this is an opportunity for all of us to learn. Because there are people on the right who don't get it either. They are allowing the government to grow under their guy.

There is a reason for separate, but equal branches of the government. There is a reason for checks and balances. There is a reason we don't concentrate power. And there is a reason for healthy skepticism of our government. Because all you have to do is say, "Okay. My guy has -- and it feels good, right? It feels good." But what happens when the next guy gets in?

Bill O'Reilly: How corrupt media twisted Joe Biden Ukraine scandal onto Trump

Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.
