Chalkboard Lesson: What’s the Difference Between a ‘Social Democracy’ and ‘Democratic Socialism’?

In this clip from the show’s fourth episode on socialism, Glenn takes to the chalkboard to shed some light on the ways in which Socialist leaders, both past and present (ahem…Bernie Sanders,) have used propaganda and wordplay to sway public opinion.

After the rise of the Soviet Union, terms like “social democracy” were labeled as heresy. Contrarily, European socialist leaders began to embrace such “favorable words,” seeing them as a means to an end.

“By sticking more favorable words, ‘democracy,’ after the word ‘social,’ the movement now had a new PR scheme to make people forget about what was going on in places like Russia and China — the killing of all kinds of people,” said Glenn.

So you say you want a revolution

After the deadly revolutions that occurred in countries such as Russia and China, the word ‘revolution’ had lost any former appeal. Socialist leaders who sought to influence public opinion knew they must choose their words carefully. “They knew now they couldn’t say it — revolution was no longer the right word,” said Glenn, adding, “In fact, if you just adjust it … Revolution actually becomes ‘infiltration.’ We’re now living in an era when this infiltration is being played out right in front of our eyes, within our own government, here in America … and they’re not even trying to hide it. In 2016, the Democratic primary debate, Bernie Sanders explained and defended a term that is quickly becoming the most popular idea in American politics: democratic socialism.”

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.

The Fed, banks printing money to 'prevent' trouble: Recession WILL come soon

Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.
