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?

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.
