The 2020 election is about loving or loathing America

Conolan/Pixabay

In President Trump's recent 60 Minutes interview – more of a cross-examination than an interview – Lesley Stahl asked him if he could characterize his supporters. He replied that they are, "People that love our country more than anything else. And they like to see our country thrive."

It is surprising that Democrats no longer seem to recognize there is still a large market for patriotism. Every day now, Democrats cater more and more to the market for contempt toward America. That does not mean all Joe Biden supporters loathe America. There are certainly Democrats who love their nation. But a far greater proportion of voters on the Left clearly loathe America. You don't roam the streets looting and burning when you love your community and nation. When you love your community and nation, you don't call police officers pigs, and riot to abolish law enforcement. Those actions are clearly driven by loathing.

In a speech earlier this week, Joe Biden condemned the latest violence and looting in Philadelphia, but then said, "Much of it [the violence] is a cry for justice." If Joe Biden is correct in that assessment, it is a tragic commentary on just how far out of love the Left has fallen with their nation. Because in America's past, looting stores and setting fire to buildings with people inside is not how serious citizens worked to achieve any kind of justice. It also demonstrates how sadly deficient their history education is that they do not see how radically different, and far more effective, the nonviolent Civil Rights movement of the 1960s was under Martin Luther King Jr.'s leadership. How are you achieving any justice when every act of burning and looting just creates more victims of injustice?

"Death to America" used to be the go-to cliché ringing out from the streets of Tehran. But this year it has been heard in Portland and Kenosha. It is the pathetic culmination of a half-century of neo-Marxist indoctrination of generations of Americans through our institutions of "higher learning." The 1960s Marxist rebels did not achieve their desired revolution in the U.S., so they became college professors instead. For decades, they methodically fed their anti-American poison to gullible captive audiences of students, brain-washing a new and larger subversive army than they were able to muster in the Sixties. Now that poison has seeped into every corner of our educational system, so that anti-American sentiment is more the rule than the exception.

It is a frightening, anti-American sentiment we've not seen on this level before.

The combination of COVID-19, economic meltdown, and the George Floyd tragedy created the neo-Marxists' ideal concoction – the opportunity to pin everything on the false narrative that America's only real sin is white supremacy. Just like original Marxism which reduced all of human history to a struggle between the working class and the evil capitalist overlords, and just like Nazism which blamed all German problems on Jews, Anti-racism is a quasi-religion that pins America's problems on the white man. It is an absurd, bigoted, ignorant conclusion, but it sells in the large segment of America that is riddled with cancer from ingesting the 1960s-neo-Marxist poison.

America has had plenty of contentious presidential elections before. Sometimes your preferred candidate wins, sometimes they lose, but we agree to disagree and move on. Ultimately, we get back to our lives after an election, trusting the Constitutional design of our system will balance things out so that no presidential administration can lead the nation too far off the deep end. But this time there is something much more sinister emanating from the Left – this idea that after President Biden ascends to his rightful throne, Americans who dared vote for Trump must be taken to the woodshed and taught a lesson, so they never utter a political opinion again. It is a frightening, anti-American sentiment we've not seen on this level before. Again, this sentiment represents an unprecedented loathing of America and of the classical liberal tradition of our political debate.

Over the past 244 years, most Americans have seen their share of garbage on our shores – greed, injustice, corruption, disastrous foreign entanglements, racism, and on and on the list goes. Most Americans have experienced this garbage in one form or another yet still said, "So you're saying there's a chance." In spite of the obstacles, most Americans choose to believe there is still a chance with America, a chance of doing better personally, and as a nation. That prospect has always fueled the American people. But it doesn't mean it always will. Ultimately, it is a choice – to love or to loathe our country. And only one of those choices provides the catalyst to continue improving the American experiment, while protecting the key principles that made it exceptional in the first place.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
