The Argument Against Idiots: We Have To Do SOMETHING

How to win the argument de jour with logic and facts



 


The issue:

'We Have To Do SOMETHING'

What the liberal whiners say:

'I hope you're happy now! You whined and cried until the whole rescue deal fell apart! Now what, Mr. Oreo Cookies Double Stuff?'

'We don't have TIME! It was supposed to be done by Rosh Hashanah, or we would face economic apocalypse!'

'Bush and his cronies have already lined the pockets of their WAR-MONGERING sidekicks, saw to it that their Big Oil buddies received $100 billion in just the last two years, and now...he won't be happy until he's looted every last penny out of the U.S. Treasury to reward Wall Street, while bankrupting MAIN STREET!'

'Oh PLEASE! I read on Michael Moore's blog yesterday, on the REAL reason for this mess! And it's NOT the subprime mortgage crisis at all! It's HEALTH INSURANCE! That's right! If we had universal health insurance, people would have money to pay their mortgages, and they wouldn't default on their loans!

Your winning, logical, reasoned arguments

1. Well, now maybe we can come up with a plan that doesn't burden GENERATIONS of Americans with an unpayable debt, OR, fundamentally change America?

2. I know, but today is Rosh Hashanah, the sun came up, the earth is still spinning, locusts haven't descended, and now Congress is working on something that might not be UnConstitutional. There were 165 world renown economists, from Universities like M.I.T, Columbia, Stanford and Johns Hopkins that signed a letter BEGGING Congress not to pass that horrendous bill.

3. I certainly have my issues with President Bush, and even though he tried many times to reign in the big financial institutions most responsible for this latest crisis, it was the Clinton Administration, the Democrats-,especially Barney Frank and Chris Dodd and Barack Obama's own economic advisor, Frank Raines who are most responsible for this mess. Check out the New York Times article from September 30th, 1999, and it will fill you in on when the stage was set for this disaster.

4. Wow, it's hard to argue with a genius like Michael Moore. But that's one of the dumbest conclusions ever reached by a SUPPOSEDLY sentient being.

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
