The Argument Against Idiots: John McCain

How to win the argument de jour with logic and facts



 


The issue:

'John McCain'

What the liberal whiners say:

'I am so sick and tired of hearing about John McCain and his war record...enough already!'

'Besides, he was an admiral's son, he probably didn't leave because they gave him special treatment'

'Well let's join the 21st Century, shall we? The guy is so out of touch, he doesn't even know how many homes he owns, and he said the middle class was anyone making under FIVE MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR'

'Yeah well, he said he doesn't mind being in Iraq for 100 years...the guy's a typical right wing war-monger!'

'And how about that Barbie doll trophy wife of his, who wants HER as a first lady'

Your winning, logical, reasoned arguments

1. I know! So the guy spent five and a half years in a North Vietnamese prison, when they offered to send him home after the first two and he refused so that he could stay with his men...get over it! I mean, Barack Obama quit a big corporate law firm to become a "community organizer" for a little while...that's much more impressive, isn't it?

2. They sure did. He broke both arms and one of this legs ejecting from his fighter jet, and was even more badly injured when he landed in a lake in the middle of Hanoi. A crowd of North Vietnamese citizens found him, pulled him out of the water, and administered a very special beating to him as a tribute to his status. The Vietnamese guards continued to torture and beat him, as well as starve him and not allow him proper medical care during the next several years to prolong the wonderful celebration...to the point where his arm and leg have never fully recovered from the injuries he received. It truly was very special for him...I'm sure he enjoyed his time there immensely.

3. No he didn't. That was a flat out Obama lie from his convention speech last week. He was asked to define what "rich" was. He jokingly said, 'well, if you make $5 million a year...and then laughed about it. He never defined anything under that as middle class.

4. There's another democrat distortion of the truth. What McCain has actually said...over and over is...he plans to WIN the war quickly, and if the combat is over, it wouldn't be big deal to have troops there for a long time...like we have had in Germany and Japan for over 60 years, and South Korea for over 50. I never hear any liberals complain about our troops there?

5. Yeah, a "Barbie doll" wife who's tried to relieve hunger and suffering on visits to Rwanda, Vietnam, Indonesia, spent 5 WEEKS camped out with out troops in Kuwait during the first Gulf War, and when she went to Bangladesh, she brought back home a baby to the U.S. to receive cleft palate surgery, fell in love with the baby, and she and John adopted her. Where has Michelle Obama been? What has she done? Other than whine about her college loans to attend Columbia and Harvard, I mean?

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.
