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?

Dollar Decimation: How Biden’s Spending Spree Will End Our Currency

If it feels like the U.S. government is spending money like it's going out of style, it's because it is.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the TRUE state of our economy that the Biden administration doesn't want you to see. Obama kicked off a spending spree that was continued under the Trump administration, and now President Joe Biden will finally push us over the ledge with the $2.3 TRILLION "infrastructure" deal.

All signs point to a major economic disaster. And the perfect storm is brewing to convert the greenback into a new digital currency. Think Bitcoin, but with CENTRAL bank control, where we could see the end of private savings and private spending and your finances are tracked. Every time our money gets converted, your wallet will take the losses.

WATCH: Glenn on Tucker: After Chauvin Verdict we CAN come together

Emotions are high and regardless of how you interpret what happened that day between Derek Chauvin and George Floyd, the wounds are deep. Politics swooped in and took an event that horrified everyone and turned it into a team sport, only deepening the divide.

Glenn joined Tucker Carlson on Tuesday night to discuss a less political way forward.

Lawyer: I’d vote NOT GUILTY for Derek Chauvin in George Floyd trial & here’s why

Former police officer Derek Chauvin is facing several charges for his treatment of George Floyd. But attorney Andrew Branca explains WHAT must be proven in order for those charges to stand. Did Chauvin act reasonably, in the context of the entire situation? Were his actions directly responsible for Floyd's passing, or could it be blamed on factors beyond Chauvin's control? Branca also explains how the prosecutor committed misconduct serious enough for a potential appeal, how political tension makes it 'impossible' for a fair trial, why he would vote not guilty, and what sentence Chauvin is facing if the actual jury disagrees...

Dangerous Tech Oligarchs Who Answer to No One | Glenn Greenwald | Ep 104

Have you noticed how the people who call everyone a conspiracy theorist are the biggest conspiracy theorists of all? Like the Russia Collusion conspiracy theory that the Washington elite used to discredit Trump and force him out of Washington, D.C. Or how the CIA is the real power center of American politics. Glenn Greenwald, Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist and author of the new book, "Securing Democracy: My Fight for Press Freedom and Justice in Bolsonaro's Brazil," is an outsider in the media because he calls out these abuses of power. For one, he agrees that the Deep State is real.

Greenwald is a rare breed these days: He does actual journalism. He explains things very well, like his description of Trump's appeal and Obama's mystique. He and Glenn cover so many topics: Woke corporations, Julian Assange, the #MeToo movement, Putin, Snowden, The Constitution, Big Tech censorship. Why does the Left call Greenwald right-wing but the Right calls him left-wing? For a journalist, that used to be a badge of honor. But as Greenwald points out, the journalism industry has become a Woke priesthood. So, if you want to learn about actual journalism, listen to this episode. It's totally worth getting through a couple of technical difficulties.
