The Argument Against Idiots: Right-Wing Religious Nuts

How to win the argument de jour with logic and facts



 


The issue:

'Right-Wing Religious Nuts'

What the liberal whiners say:

'Like Charlie Gibson pointed out, Sarah Palin is a nutjob that believes we are sending U.S. soldiers to Iraq on a "task from God"...we don't need ANOTHER religious zealot just one heartbeat from the presidency, who thinks this is a Middle Ages Crusade!'

'We don't know ANYTHING about this wackjob! Like Matt Damon, I want to know if she believes dinosaurs roamed the earth 4000 years ago, she'll have the NUCLEAR CODES!'

'It's just more of the same from the religious nutbag kooks! Babbling about God and the Bible all the time...that has NO PLACE in our government...what about separation of church and state!'

Your winning, logical, reasoned arguments

1. Sarah Palin explained all that. She doesn't believe this is a holy war....This is what Charlie Gibson said, our national leaders are sending U.S. leaders on a task that's from God. Are we fighting a holy war? She said, 'you know, I don't know if that's my exact quote. Gibson said, 'exact words'. Well, unfortunately not the exact words. Her exact words actually were, "Pray that our leaders are sending our soldiers out on a task that is from God." Pray that that is the case, that we're not just higgledy piggledy sending them out for oil or whatever. Pray for that. And then he even took her completely not only out of context but then he changed what she said. Gibson said, 'there is a plan and it is God's plan'. That's not what she said. Palin said, "Pray that there is a plan and that it is God's plan." He had to change the words to be able to give her that exact quote.

2. No one believes dinosaurs roamed the earth just 4000 years ago. Maybe you and Matt Damon should check your Biblical timelines. But if she does believe in Creationism, as 100's of millions of Americans do...what does that have to do with access nuclear codes? Are you saying that all people of faith should be disqualified from office?

3. FIrst of all, there is NOTHING in the Constitution about separating church and state, look it up. Second, if you're so concerned about candidates not talking about the Bible, why aren't you disturbed by Barack Obama, who brings it up a LOT? On June 28, he said: "Which passages of Scripture should guide our public policy? Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is ok and that eating shellfish is abomination? How about Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith? Or should we just stick to the Sermon on the Mount - a passage that is so radical that it's doubtful that our own Defense Department would survive its application? Let's read our bibles. Folks haven't been reading their bibles." Isn't that troubling to you?

As the left tries to erase America's history and disparage nearly everything about our nation's founding, Glenn Beck set the record straight about the Declaration of Independence, what it really says, and why he believes it is the "greatest mission statement of all time."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn read something you've probably never heard before: a section of the earliest known draft of the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson in July 1776 and lost for more than a century and a half.

"This wasn't found until 1947; the original draft of the Declaration was found in a bunch of Thomas Jefferson's writings, in a box in the Library of Congress," Glenn said. "This takes everything that you have learned about Thomas Jefferson and turns it upside down. It also explains why we didn't eliminate slavery. It also explains that our Founders felt passionately about slavery, that they tried to end slavery. I want to read just this paragraph to you. This changes absolutely everything."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.
