The Argument Against Idiots: Republican Attack Machine

How to win the argument de jour with logic and facts



 


The issue:

'Republican Attack Machine'

What the liberal whiners say:

'I am so sick and tired of this vicious Republican attack machine, engaged once again, in dirty politics rather than the issues'

'Oh and what about all of McCain's surrogates, like YOU and all the rest of the haters in talk radio! Constantly yapping about Barack Obama, viscously calling him "Barry" or a "Marxist".

'The Republicans only have the same old failed policies of the past 30 years, that's why they can't talk about the REAL issues...instead, they're talking about Obama's birth certificate!'

'Oh, it's OK to attack Barack and Michelle Obama's patriotism every day, but we can't bring up whether McCain supports American car companies?'

'You just have to keep avoiding the real issues with McCain, don't you? He's completely out of touch with the American people. Not only is he so rich he can't relate to the disappearing middle class, but he's so OLD, he doesn't even access the Internet!'

Your winning, logical, reasoned arguments

1. Actually, according to a new study our from the TNS Media Intelligence Campaign Media Analysis Group and the University of Wisconsin Advertising Project, 77% of Barack Obama's ads have been negative, compared to 56% of McCain's.

2. First, I don't think I've ever called him "Barry". But as far as calling him "Marxist", that's all about his ideology and what he's proposed for America. That's not an attack...that's a fact...and a real issue. If you want to talk about "viscous" attacks by surrogates, how about Saturday Night Live asserting that Sarah Palin's husband is having an incestuous relationship with his daughters? Or Charlie Rangel calling Sarah Palin "disabled"?

3. No legitimate conservatives are talking his birth certificate. Meanwhile, democrats are still talking about how many homes John McCain owns, as if success is evil. Now, they're even attacking him for owning 13 CARS! And are making a big deal out of some of them being foreign cars.

4.We've already talked about all the reasons the Obama's have raised concerns over their patriotism. John McCain has made HIS patriotism crystal clear fighting for this country, and giving up over 5 years of his life in a Vietnamese prison.

5. Which brings us to yet ANOTHER ugly democrat attack on McCain. Because of the injuries he received in Vietnam, he can't raise his arms over his head; AND...it's too painful for him to use a computer keyboard. That's why he has his staff send emails for him. Would you like to make fun of his war wounds some more?

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

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.
