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?

Marxist Methods: Debunking the Left's LIES About Critical Race Theory

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

'They believe their job is to REMAKE your child': WSJ writer warns public schools may be LOST to woke trans activism

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

Is California ‘PURPOSEFULLY’ destroying this small business?

It seems like some politicians are purposefully trying to destroy the lives and dreams of certain Americans, specifically small business owners. Dave Foldes spoke to Glenn over six months ago after THIS audience raised thousands of dollars for his restaurant that refused to close: Cronies Sports Grill. Now, despite making progress in his administrative battle against LA, the city of Agoura Hills, California is coming for Cronies instead. And the reasoning is INSANE. But Foldes isn't giving up, and neither are his supporters. It's the ultimate David vs. Goliath showdown.

Trans Activism Will End Your Parental Rights | Abigail Shrier | Ep 110

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it is incredibly dangerous. Just ask Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier. Her book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — just like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, Shrier argues it could end your parental rights for good. She is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy number one to the activists. Recently, the American Booksellers Association even called sending her book to others "a serious, violent incident." Abigail joins Glenn to lay out just how slippery this slope has proven to be and what we — conservatives and liberals — must do to protect our children.
