The Argument Against Idiots: The Border: Part Deux...or is it Troi?

How to win the argument de jour with logic and facts


The issue:

'The Border: Part Deux...or is it Troi?'

What the liberal whiners say:

'Well it's nice to see that you right-wing racists have been silenced on the border finally! Even your own party knows the border is not a problem.'

'Thanks to the Democrat led Congress who got the "Merida Initiative" passed, we're sending $1.4 billion to Mexico to help them with their battle against the drug cartels. The first $500 million has already been sent'

'All of that violence is happening on the Mexican side of the border, we don't have those problems on the U.S. side'

'You right wing kooks are always talking about these scary "Zetas"...ooh! Some little group of what, 70 trained commandos, big deal!'

Your winning, logical, reasoned arguments

1. Yeah, I guess we got carried away just because there's been between 70-100 U.S. citizens kidnapped in Laredo alone...more than in all of Iraq. According to Laredo Sheriff Rick Flores, who is a DEMOCRAT...not ONE of those Americans has been returned or recovered.

2. Yes, that's right. The fabulous "Merida Initiative." The initiative Mexican President, Philipe Calderon spoke of so eloquently, when he told Congress..."I cannot accept any submission or subordination…Give it to me. And give it to me without conditions!" Merida has been GREAT so far. Two weeks ago, they found ELEVEN beheaded bodies in MERIDA, the very city where they signed the agreement, and a 12th beheaded body was found about 50 miles away. All 12 beheadings were attributed to the drug cartels. I wonder how many they would've found if we hadn't sent that initial half billion dollars?

3. I think the families of the kidnap victims, and the U.S. citizens who've been murdered by the cartels in Texas, Arizona and California would argue with that. You might want to watch the "History Channel" special Rusty Fleming just made (he's the same person who made the movie "Drug Wars"). In this upcoming History Channel special, Rusty interviews an 18 year old American citizen who's in prison for multiple murders. He was recruited by the Mexican drug cartel commandos, the Zetas, while he was at Laredo Junior High. Laredo Junior High is, of course, in Texas...which is in the United States of America. He was 13 when they recruited him. He admits to over 40 murders...the first, when he was just 13 years old. Many of his victims were on OUR side of the border. The Zetas are recruiting more and more American kids, tempting them with huge sums of money, because they speak English and can get past the border check points.

4. Unfortunately, the original 70 have now become THOUSANDS. Here's what the FBI said about them: "Los Zetas are not only holding off the Mexican army, federal and state police, but are now seen as "an emerging threat to the United States". They are heavily armed with military fire-power, have their own helicopters for air evacuation, their own private jets, their own hospitals, doctors and clinics. They have taken over the Gulf Cartel, infiltrated the Mexican military, the Mexican police, and have set up operations in at least 6 U.S. states...Texas, California, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Georgia and Florida. But I guess we shouldn't be worried, right?

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.
