HuffPost's article uses lies and manipulation to normalize socialism for 'Boomers'

Communism. Socialism. Marxism. For anyone who's studied history, those ideologies are toxic, bloody, and fatal. There's a crop of young romantics who love wearing Che Guevara t-shirts to Starbucks, with tattoos of his grizzled, murderous face donned with a halo like some Spanish-speaking John Lennon. They swoon at the mention of Marxism—which is largely a consequence of the fanciful rhetoric they've been fed by beret-clutching professors who, in reality, preach about the merits of Marxism while enjoying the benefits of capitalism, having never experienced the depravity of Marxism.

As Stephen Hicks writes in Explaining Postmodernism:

Socialism is the historic loser, and if socialists know that, they will hate that fact, they will hate the winners for having won, and they will hate themselves for having picked the losing side. Hate as a chronic condition leads to the urge to destroy.

Part of the postmodernist's fight against that reality is rhetoric. Essentially, lies. They'll lie to find a way to enforce their system. HuffPost's recent article "Relax, Boomers: Socialism Is Good Now" uses strategic lying as a way to coax people into believing the nauseatingly false idea that socialism is somehow good. That's right, not just possible, but good. Of course, the article is not posted in the opinion sections—in other words, they consider it to be factual.

Check out this gem, which will likely end up in the writing manuals of your local journalism school as an example of good writing:

The Baby Boomers are the worst American generation since Reconstruction, but they had many reasons to turn out this way. The Boomers were raised in a political culture dominated by madmen, their minds warped at an early age. For decades, Boomers saw the term "socialism" deployed not to denote a set of economic policies, but to conjure a vague, foreign horror. Accustomed to this nomenclature, Boomers have reacted with fright or at least confusion to the terminology of today's American left, which has embraced the "socialist" label more widely than any domestic political movement in living memory. But the Boomers need to relax. Socialism is good now.

What follows is a puzzling, nearly unintelligible rant about the merits of socialism. Part of me wants to sit down with the author over dinner and chat about all of it till we come to some kind of understanding, but mostly I want to buy him a one-way ticket to Venezuela.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.
