Glenn Beck Video: Comrade Update

Comrades, good news from the Western Front!

Our glorious revolution is starting to take hold on a global scale. Just listen as Comrade Brown pounded our propaganda into the minds of the clueless capitalists:


BRITISH PRIME MINISTER GORDON BROWN: I say we should seize the moment — because never before have I seen a world willing to come together so much. Never before has that been more needed. And never before have the benefits of cooperation been so far-reaching.


Oh, how right he is. Even a child knows that a collective is stronger than the individual. That's why you'll be so pleased by the good work of the agents we've planted inside our great worker organization, the AFL-CIO.

These workers have united at their winter gathering in Florida to improve life for you, the average worker, by touting our "card check system." And, believe it or not, the Americans are actually buying it!

Their fearless leader, Comrade Obama, has even promised these noble workers that he supports our bill.

Yes, comrades, the greatest Trojan horse we've ever conceived of might still work after all.

But we must stay vigilant!

Some capitalists are trying to save their failed state by thwarting the fearless leader's efforts. They say that secret ballots must be protected. You must not listen to their foolish propaganda: They only fear our united front.

Comrades, our time is now. We have them spending trillions to save their precious banks; we nearly have their census in the hands of the Great Leader; we have convinced them that those who cheat on their taxes are more important than the average person, so it should be ignored, and our very own agents in their Congress.

We are very close to our ruling party.

The destruction of the West is happening just as we've always hoped: not with violence, but with fear.

And the best part is that it's happening without fear of their true enemy: What they would call the red slavery of socialism.

The only thing worse to them than losing millions of lives is losing trillions of dollars. We have them where we want them and in their panic they will succumb.

The Moment of Trump's Conversion: Dr Anthony Fauci Takes Full Responsibility
  • Dr Anthony Fauci, the Chief Medical Advisor to the coronavirus task force, explained on CNN that Trump listened and "got it right away" after being shown new data projecting as many as 3 Million deaths in the US if COVID-19 mitigation policies were lifted.
  • Fauci also said Trump's "first goal is to prevent suffering and death" and this was part of the reason why he knew the COVID-19 guidelines should be extended.
  • "You know, interestingly, we showed him the data, he looked at the data and he got it right away, it was a pretty clear picture," according to Fauci.
  • "Dr. Debbie Birx and I went in together and leaned over his desk and said 'Here is the data, take a look.'
  • Trump reportedly looked at them, understood the implications and he shook his head and said 'I guess we got to do it.'
  • "Medically, this is the right decision, and I stand behind it 100%," Fauci said.
  • "From a public health standpoint, we felt strongly that it would have been the wrong decision to pull back," Fauci said. "I mean, we are scientists, physicians, public health officials. We're not economists. We're sensitive to the idea that the economy could suffer, but weigh that against tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of American lives."
  • " was patently obvious looking at the data that at the end of the day if we try to push back prematurely, not only would we lose lives, but it probably would hurt the economy as well. So you would lose on double accounts. So, to us, there was no question what the right choice was."
