Glenn responds to advocates of aborting Down syndrome babies: ‘No better than Nazi Germans’

In an opinion editorial for The Washington Post, columnist Ruth Marcus wrote that all women should have the right to abort a baby with Down syndrome or any “child whose intellectual capacity will be impaired, whose life choices will be limited, whose health may be compromised … this means limited capacity for independent living and financial security; Down syndrome is life-altering for the entire family.”

A mother of two,  Marcus argued that if she had found out during either one of her pregnancies that her unborn child had Down syndrome, she would have terminated the pregnancy, “without hesitation … tragic as it would have felt and ghastly as a second-trimester abortion would have been … I’m going to be blunt here: That was not the child I wanted. That was not the choice I would have made. You can call me selfish, or worse, but I am in good company.”

On today’s show, Glenn compared Marcus’ argument that a “genetic anomaly or defect justifies an abortion,” to Hitler’s kinder-euthanasia campaign in Nazi Germany.

“When we look at the Nazi regime, we like to comfort ourselves with the idea that it couldn’t happen here,” said Glenn. “But it’s happening here right now, and the op-ed by Ruth Marcus in the Washington Post is a reminder that we are not better than the Germans, but we better get there quickly.”

Glenn wasn’t the only one with an impassioned response:

What was the Kinder-Euthanasia or T-4 Program?

In 1939, Nazi Germany launched a massive campaign to eliminate what they termed, “life unworthy of life.” Hitler began an euthanasia program called T-4, which systematically rid the country of anyone who was mentally or physically ‘imperfect.’

The campaign first targeted “undesirable” babies, namely those with Down syndrome, mental disabilities, or physical deformities. But the list of undesirables quickly grew to include orphans, the elderly, adults in mental institutions, the deaf, epileptics, and eventually all children under 16.

When the people of Nazi Germany discovered what was being done to these children, there was a public outcry for the killing to stop. As a result, Hitler publicly ordered an end to the T-4 program but Nazi leaders continued in secret until the end of the war.

A pre-Inauguration Day plea: You wield MUCH more power than you know

Glenn has spent years teaching YOU — his audience — about the power of Martin Luther King, Jr. After nearly a year of witnessing chaos and turmoil both in the streets and now at our Capitol, we're all frustrated. We're angry. And we want to fight back. But Glenn says now, more than ever, we must refuse to engage with the darkness. We must be a light in the world, instead. MLK is one of the most powerful leaders America has ever seen, and he led some of the most profound changes too. He did it all nonviolently. As we approach Inauguration Day, and as the left HOPES you engage in chaos, never forget that like MLK — you wield MUCH more power than you know.

In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one. Dan details what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

YOU will be RESPONSIBLE for loss of rights if you riot

A new poster is circulating social media, calling for a record-breaking armed protest to take place across America on Inauguration Day. Here's Glenn's advice for those considering attendance: DON'T GO. No matter who is responsible for the poster or for any possible future chaos that may take place, the far left and the media WILL blame Trump supporters regardless of the facts. And because of that, if you attend and partake in rioting, you WILL be responsible for the loss of our rights that will come as a result. Don't go. But, listen to this clip to find out what Glenn thinks you SHOULD do on Inauguration Day instead…

Parler exec speaks out against ‘unfair’ Big Tech throttle

She joins Glenn to discuss the recent moves made against Parler and how the company is fighting to move forward: "We're doing everything we can to save civil discourse on the Internet. I promise: We're on it."
