Glenn Beck: March to Socialism - Hummer tax?




The government approved SUV of the future?

VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents more truth behind America's march to socialism.

GLENN: Well, you know that a socialist idea is unpopular when just a couple of days after his transportation secretary proposed the idea, the president is coming out now and saying he is not even considering it. The idea was the federal gas mileage tax. That setback is not shopping the socialist ideas from running wild, however, on the state level. Massachusetts governor did very well, Patrick said he is looking at the Hummer tax, adding that higher registration fees for gas-guzzling cars and offering discounts for those who do less harm to the environment, it would be the first such fee in the nation on the state level. Oh, I love, it's change we can hope for or we can count on or -- it's change. I love it. Environmentalists applauded the registration proposal saying it would encourage people to buy smaller and more fuel efficient cars which are increasingly seen as key to curbing global warming. No, actually if you agree in all that garbage, what's key is going vegan. How many of these environmentalists are vegan. It's almost when you read the story, it's almost like they want you to focus on the environmental part of this proposal in the hopes that you don't realize this is, you know, for the environment, yet it does nothing to actually stop global warming. If you are buying a Hummer, it's going to cost you, what, about $800 a month? So if you can afford the $800 a month car, it's highly unlikely that the increased registration cost is going to make you reconsider the purchase, you know? So what are you left with? Just another tax that takes money from the rich and gives it to the poor. And after that money is changed hands, you know, then what? Hummers are still gas guzzling at the same rate that they were before. Quote, the social costs of larger vehicles -- the social costs -- of larger vehicles include not only the additional pollution but also higher crash risks to other vehicles. This is a Democrat who is cosponsoring the bill in the legislature that would penalize expensive and heavy cars with higher taxes or fees. I'm sorry. Crash risks? Who's the one that's making it unsafe for drivers? The giant SUV built with lots of armor? Or the tiny hybrid made out of tinfoil? Don't blame the big evil SUV for your poor crash safety results. I mean, what are we going to do? You know, if we could just get all those semi trucks off the road. "Oh, gee, Glenn, if all the cars on the road were tiny tinfoil hybrids, less people would die in car crashes. Yes, but more people would die from suicide because we would all want to kill ourselves because we would be forced to drive a Prius. "Oh, Priuses are nice." Shut up. Seriously, SUVs are the safer car. It's the Smart cars that aren't so smart and safe. Governor Patrick also said that he was continuing to look at raising the state's gas tax but didn't commit to it. When asked about the gas tax during the chamber event, he threw the question back at the audience, asking by a show of hands whether the crowd favored a gas tax increase or a toll hike. The crowd chose a gas tax, which has generally been more popular proposal than the business community. Oh, oh, so they chose the gas tax increase. It's generally more popular. Oh. So like electrocution? Or a firing squad? They chose the firing squad. Jeez, I wonder what the audience would have said if you would have said, "Higher gas or higher tolls or we cut spending." I wonder what that hand count would have been? Which would have been more popular? But Patrick cautioned that even if lawmakers raise the gas tax rate, the state would probably collect less money in the future as drivers buy more fuel-efficient cars and need less gas. Because of that he's also considering a replacement that would charge drivers a fee for every mile they drive. Oh, boy, so it's for pollution, yet it's not. There's that gas mileage tax thing. These guys are full of ideas. Another then they support the Hummer tax, if the gas tax is eventually fazed out, a new fee would keep the pressure on consumers to buy more f uel-efficient cars. Well, thank goodness. We wouldn't want that fee to go away without a brand-new fee ready to go.

VOICE: That was even more overwhelming evidence that we are destined to be a bunch of socialist pigs very, very soon on the Glenn Beck program.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."
