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?

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.
