The Argument Against Idiots: Scare Tactics

How to win the argument de jour with logic and facts



 


The issue:

'Scare Tactics'

What the liberal whiners say:

'You must be very frustrated that none of your scare tactics in this campaign have worked?'

'You mean like nationalizing the banks? You don't have THAT to worry about do you, George Bush has already done it!'

'And you don't have to worry about Barack suspending habeas corpus, George Bush already did that, too!'

'Not to mention wiretapping! Bush is wiretapping Americans and trampling all over the Constitution, taking away our freedoms!'

'Barack Obama will bring back our rights and freedoms as Americans!'

Your winning, logical, reasoned arguments

1. Well, we haven't USED scare tactics, all we've done, is to desperately try to point out the actual concerns we have about Barack Obama. For instance, that Obama wants the government involved in everything we do...that's just not the way America works.

2. And we were absolutely opposed to it. We've been consistently anti-socialism. That doesn't mean I'm OK with Barack Obama making the situation far WORSE.

3. OK, President Bush suspended habeas corpus for ENEMY COMBATANTS! As Abraham LINCOLN did during the Civil War, and as we did again for a short time in WWII with what they called, "unlawful combatant saboteurs". It was suspended only for the terrorists at Gitmo Bay in Cuba. Bush did NOT suspend habeas for U.S. citizens. And by the way, the Supreme Court overturned it this summer anyway, so you don't even have that to whine about anymore.

4. Name one conversation you've had, while the government listened in...name ONE freedom you've been denied under George W. Bush. ONE.

5. Really? Well let's see. Obama has already promised a weird, 250,000 person "civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded" as our military...isn't that a TAD creepy...even Third Reich-ish? He has started "truth squads" to find and prosecute people responsible for negative ads he doesn't like...his campaign has black-listed media outlets who asked questions he didn't like...he sent the secret service to investigate a Lufkin, Texas woman who answered an Obama phone survey in a way he didn't appreciate...he has already PROMISED to crush the 1st Amendment rights of talk radio stations and their hosts...and he even said in a 2001 interview that it was tragic that the Earl Warren Supreme Court didn't "break free from the essential constraints set by the Founding Fathers and the Constitution." And all of this...even BEFORE he's been elected. Isn't any of that just a little frightening to you?

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.

As politicians and the mainstream media continue to insist that America is divided and at each other's throats, Dr. Ben Carson has a different message. He joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to discuss his time in the Trump administration and how we move forward and heal America.
