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?

Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss the Left's current efforts to rid the U.S. military of "extremism," Democrats' push to separate President Joe Biden from the nuclear codes, and how conservatives can use government to battle the far-left, their policies, and their efforts to control Americans.

Crenshaw called the military's efforts to rid their ranks of extremism, "so obviously and clearly politically motivated," as the entire premise is based on reports that some active service members and veterans participated in the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol.

"Mathematically, that's not a good indication of where active duty military stand or where veterans stand more broadly," Crenshaw said of the generalization that military personnel are extremists. "And I thought we were against that kind of profiling. Right? I thought that was against the liberal values that supposedly the Left stands for."

"But, Glenn, you know very well the Left is not liberal," he added. "The Left is very anti-liberal. And I think as conservatives, we have to say that more often. They have become genuinely authoritarian. Progressivism is not in sync with liberalism. All right? There's a big difference between an Alan Dershowitz liberal and a Democrat Party progressive. They're totally different."

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
