Glenn Beck: Arguing with Idiots - White House Edition


Arguing with Idiots: How to Stop Small Minds and Big Government


by Glenn Beck

GLENN: That's right, Arguing With Idiots. This is a book where it shows you how to win all of the it is the best book of facts to win the argument of the free market system. You know, that whole freedom thing is a good thing, at least with those of us here on the program. Today a special White House edition of Arguing With Idiots.

PAT: Yeah, I heard your clip of Anita Dunn, the White House official who said Mao was one of her favorite political philosophers.

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: But what you missed, Mr. Fatty Fat Fatso was that she got that from Republican Lee Atwater. Aha! I got you on that one.

GLENN: Yeah. We can't find that. We can't find any record of any Lee Atwater saying anything like that, you know. And I can't say that I'm a Lee Atwater expert here, but I've heard nothing that indicates that Mao was Lee Atwater's favorite political philosopher. You know what I mean? Or one that what did Anita say? One that she turns to most often. I haven't seen anyone produce the evidence that she actually got this from him, but here's the thing. If Chairman Mao was Lee Atwater's favorite political philosopher, then Lee Atwater sucked as well. I don't care about the parties. That's your game, not mine.

PAT: Well, John McCain even quoted Mao in his speech. I didn't hear you complaining about John McCain!

GLENN: Right, right, I've never been on the record complaining about John McCain. But here's the thing and the White House should understand this no one on the planet thinks that quoting someone is the same as naming them as their favorite political philosopher or someone they turn to most often. No one. If the White House believed any of their voters had more than four brain cells, they wouldn't even attempt to try this defense. For example, do you know who does a lot of quoting of Adolf Hitler?

PAT: Who?

GLENN: Holocaust museum. Yeah. But nowhere at the Holocaust museum do they say Adolf Hitler was one of their favorite political philosophers. I think that would be newsworthy if they did.

PAT: Yeah, you won't talk about the comparisons you've made in the past I noticed.

GLENN: The problem here is not making comparisons. You know, your line of attack is totally bizarre and so is the White House. Why would comparing things be controversial? You could fairly describe a good portion of my job as comparing conservatism to liberalism. I think it's quite clear that there's one of them I like and one of them that I don't.

PAT: Well, don't try to change the subject here. You brought Adolf Hitler up and you won't talk about, what you don't talk about ever is the fact that you compared Adolf Hitler to Jesus! You don't even mention that, I noticed.

GLENN: Who's got a blog organization reading my old books? You do. Well, it was as much of a comparison as my last point about Hitler and the Holocaust museum. One use Hitler quotes for good; the other for evil. The point that I illustrated with Hitler and Jesus was that they both stood up and said, "Follow me, I have answers." One used that approach for good: Love one another; the other used it for evil: Kill all the Jews. But the larger point here is we've come to a time where the White House is comfortable citing Mao, a man responsible for the deaths of 70 million people as their favorite philosopher and the person they turn to most often, while we're supposed to feel bad about citing Jesus for any reason whatsoever. Well, guess what.

PAT: What?

GLENN: Jesus is one of my favorite philosophers. The guy I turn to most often. In fact, in the countdown, he comes in all the way at number one. And I don't apologize for it. I don't need a communications department to make excuses for it, either.

PAT: I knew it! This is all about your religious zealotry. Guess what? You forgot one thing about the Bible.

GLENN: Yeah? What's that?

PAT: Gluttony is one of the seven deadly sins! That's what!

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."

The World Economic Forum isn't trying to hide its plans for the Great Reset. Details to "reset" the global economy have been published on its own website. Despite that and all the warning signs, many are still quick to refute this master plan as a "conspiracy theory" or as something that will never actually take hold. But as Glenn Beck explained on the radio program Monday, the Great Reset is happening right now in Europe. A huge new development for the Great Reset that could affect not only European businesses, but American ones as well. Businesses — and citizens — may be forced to comply sooner than you think.

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself and he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded in physicality and stop taking so much for granted.

Hanson joined Glenn on the latest "Glenn Beck Podcast" to point out that this needs to happen soon because, as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting pretty bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

In the clip below, Hanson shares a crucial lesson that woke America has forgotten — but surprisingly enough, President Donald Trump never did. Watch the video clip below or find the full podcast here or wherever you listen to podcasts:
