"He's encouraging you to feel your way through this debate, not think": Will Cain slams Democrats for using Children as political props

by Sara J.

Here's a pro-tip from President Obama:

When your political argument is guaranteed to fail under an ounce of scrutiny, be sure to bring out the kids. Lots and lots of cute, smiling, innocent little children.

Why would anyone do something so distasteful as to use one of the most violent acts in our history as a tool to pass legislation that merely ties the hands of law abiding citizens? As we saw with Obamacare, and the new gun regulations that were passed yesterday, because not only does it work, it silences your opposition.

As usual, the president's fan club (aka the mainstream media) has failed to see how repulsive his tactics are in abridging the Second Amendment rights of law abiding Americans while surrounding himself with innocent children. The shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary could easily be described as one of the most traumatic and disturbing violent acts to take place in America since 9/11. And yesterday, the president used that emotion to silence his detractors and inflame that emotion while presenting 23 new gun restrictions yesterday to the American people.

"Normally, the only time you see politicians showcasing children is during the campaign," Carol Costello said when opening a segment on this issues yesterday on CNN.

Think about that. The only time you normally see children "showcased" is during campaigns. Why is that? Because they're used as a tool to get votes, make politicians more friendly and appealing, or avoid conflict.

After 9/11, President George W. Bush was lambasted my the media for simply releasing a photo of himself on Air Force One speaking the phone not long after the attacks took place. Where's the media outrage over surrounding yourself with innocent kids behind the podium follow the Sandy Hook massacre?

The left finds it outrageous that Rush Limbaugh, Rick Perry, our own Glenn Beck have spoken out against the president's decision to use this tragic incident to pass pre-existing legislation, yet they all seem to have an opinion on the N.R.A.'s latest ad highlighting the hypocrisy of the president. The new add highlights the security of the president's children compared to the average American. The president and the White House responded to that ad by calling it "repugnant and cowardly," but they seem to have no problem with using the imagery of America's children to pass their own agenda.

TheBlaze's Will Cain, joined by Democratic strategist Maria Cardona, discussed the controversy with Costello on CNN yesterday.

Will Cain correctly pointed out that President Obama is using these children to shield himself from debate and inject emotion on specific incidences into a discussion that should be centered on the Constitution and the rights of Americans. Well, Cardona did nothing short of prove Will's point by delivering one of the most emotional, red-faced, overreactions since Chris Matthews's near temper-tantrum following President Obama's first debate against Romney.

Watch:

The far Left has intensified its push toward Marxism for months now, but it's more than clever catchphrases or slogans. Their radical rhetoric and policies have violent consequences.

Calls to defund the police have led to officers being ambushed and killed. Crime is spiking in record amounts all over the country. Critical race theory has the government, corporations, and now schools brainwashing Americans to believe the entire system is systemically racist. And it's paved the way for actual violence in the streets from groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa.

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck exposes their endgame: tearing the entire system down. Marxists did this in the Soviet Union and China, among other places. Millions died, and the first to feel the brunt were always the landowners and farmers. The most recent example of this is happening in South Africa, where Glenn reveals terrifying on-the-ground interviews.

As American farmers now also face unprecedented racial discrimination by our federal government, award-winning South African journalist Lara Logan warns of what could happen if the seeds of Marxism aren't uprooted now.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."
