Arguing with Idiots: How to Stop Small Minds and Big Government
by Glenn Beck
GLENN: Well, after Van Jones was outed as a communist Truther, he obviously was immediately disowned by the mainstream media, right? I mean, left, right? Of course, of course he he left the administration. He ended up at the hard corps communist Truther think tank, right?
STU: Definitely, yes, yes.
GLENN: He was able to pick up some office space at the Center For American Progress think tank run by former chief of staff of Bill Clinton, John Podesta and funded by George Soros. That is so weird because it's also the exact same place where the official who gave us the Air Force one Statue of Liberty fly by wound up after he was forced out. So today's czar is not Van Jones who is... no longer a czar. Yes?
STU: Is it Van Jones?
GLENN: No, I just okay. I don't think you guys understand this game. Today's czar loves nature. Don't you. I mean, don't you like to go to the park and lay on a blanket under a tree?
PAT: Yogi Berra.
GLENN: No, I'm not just because it's the word picnic...
STU: Boo Boo?
GLENN: No, it's not Boo Boo. This czar loves nature so much, he apparently wanted to turn the whole country into a giant park free from all those annoying stores and houses and roads and malls and gyms and doctors' offices, gas stations, irritating preschools and, you know, Build a Bears, all of those things. Quoting the czar of the day, quote: The most critical change of all must be a change in goals. All people, rich and poor alike, must come to recognize that being a citizen of a giant smoggy freeway strangled industrial state is not necessary to being happy, healthy and a fulfilled human being. He said, still quoting, a massive campaign must be launched to restore a high quality environment in North America and dedevelop the states. Dedevelop? I don't know about you but I don't know if I want to go a guy who wants to perform the equivalent of breast reduction surgery on the economy in the White House. I mean, maybe it's just me but we've kind of been cozying up to that teat, you know what I mean? Trying to get our food off that capitalism thing. But certainly this guy loves nature so much, and he has no other motivations at all, right? Quote: The need for development presents our economists with a major challenge. What did I say, Stu?
STU: You said the need for development.
GLENN: I'm sorry, the need for dedevelopment presents our economists with a major challenge. They must design a stable, low consumption economy in which there is much more equitable distribution of wealth than in the present one. Redistribution of wealth, both within and among nations is absolutely essential if a decent human life is to be provided to every human being.
STU: I love that, within and among.
STU: Among nations.
GLENN: Among nations. Boy, there's no does anybody completely unrelated. Isn't it weird that Barack Obama is going to be the first U.S. president to chair the security council? Isn't that weird? Oh, and isn't it weird that we're also, you know, going to do that big green thing with the United Nations? Oh, and isn't it completely unrelated. Isn't it weird to have the first president go overseas and give a campaign speech in Europe?
STU: These questions feel rhetorical to me. So I'm not going to answer them.
GLENN: Do you know your czars!
STU: Is it the love child of Al Gore and Al Gore?
GLENN: No, sorry, sorry.
PAT: Is it the love child of Al Gore, Al Gore and Ed Bagley, Jr.?
GLENN: No. Sorry. It is science and technology czar John Holdren.
PAT: Didn't see that coming.
GLENN: Yes, the guy in charge of technology and scientific development supported dedevelopment of our country in a textbook, a textbook written in the Seventies. But don't worry because he sort of kind of disavowed some of his unrelated beliefs on forced abortions and governmental population control. And those are the only ones that anybody wants to ask him about. So we can assume that he's done with the dedevelopment and redistribution of wealth thing, right?
