Ever feel like both Republicans and Democrats are just puppets on a stage of distraction? Glenn Beck has been explaining why to millions of captivated Americans. It's the Progressive movement and it attacks the Constitution from BOTH parties. If you haven't been watching his show, you need to.
Glenn explains how Progressivism has been with us since the turn of the century. It isn't discussed in textbooks because President Woodrow Wilson and Walter Litman were part of the "Council of Foreign Relations" whose goal it was to change history as we knew it through education and the media. The movement (alive and well today) is out to replace our beloved Constitution with a philosophy that the elite should rule. Woodrow Wilson said, "Justly revered as our great Constitution is, it could be stripped off and thrown aside like a garment and the nation will still stand forth..." He said the preamble of the Constitution should never be read and the Declaration of Independence has zero relevance to any other age other than 1776.
I never heard that in school...
Academic elites hold George Bernard Shaw dearly in their hearts. Are they aware he was a Progressive that said, "I think it would be a good thing to make everybody come before a properly-appointed board, just as they might come before the income tax commissioner, and say every five years, or every seven years, just put them there, and say, "Sir, or madam, now will you be kind enough to justify your existence? If you're not producing as much as you consume or perhaps a little more, then, clearly, we cannot use the big organizations of our society for the purpose of keeping you alive, because your life does not benefit us and it can't be of very much use to yourself."
These are Progressives with EVIL philosophies, admiring mass murderers like Che, Castro, Stalin and Mao. So who do we know that's a Progressive today? Beck plays the clips:
HILLARY CLINTON: "I prefer the word Progressive which has a real American meaning going back to the Progressive era at the beginning of the 20th Century. I consider myself a modern Progressive.
BARACK OBAMA: "You will carry on the best Progressive forward looking values of this proud commonwealth...," "Change has always come from places like Wisconsin, the State where the Progressive movement was born." He refers to Democrats as Progressives.
Before becoming President, Obama said the Warren court failed to "break free from the essential constraints" in the U.S. Constitution and launch a major redistribution of wealth. But Obama said the legislative branch of government, rather than the courts, probably was the ideal avenue for accomplishing that goal. Then he stood there in his State of the Union Address and chastised the US Supreme Court for their decision to uphold the Constitution.
MICHELLE OBAMA on the campaign trail: "...and Barack knows that we are gonna have to make sacrifices, we are gonna have to change our conversation, we are gonna have to change our traditions, our history, we are gonna have to move into a different place."
ANITA DUNN, former White House Communications Director: "Mao Tse Tung and Mother Teresa; not often coupled with each other, but the two people that I turn to most."
Mao was responsible for the deaths of 70 million people!
RON BLOOM, Manufacturing 'Czar': "We know that the free market is nonsense.... We know that this is largely about power, that it's an adults only, no-limit game. We kind of agree with Mao that political power comes largely from the barrel of a gun."
There are 82 members of the Progressive Caucus of the Democratic Party. In fact, 11 out of 20 standing committees are chaired by members of the Progressive Caucus.
Glenn has also noted that John McCain is a Progressive who's hero is Teddy Roosevelt, also a Progressive. This causes concern as to why Sarah Palin will be stumping for John McCain on his campaign trail? I love Sarah Palin, but we need to start scrutinizing our potential candidates carefully. Very carefully.
Meanwhile, as you can imagine, Beck is taking much heat for all his hard work. Articles are being published in the Mein Kampf media attempting to belittle Beck. Yet top historians don't seem to come up with a single inaccuracy.
Arianna Huffington said on Keith Olbermann of Beck, "We cannot just dismiss him because the truth of the matter is that there is a good reason why we have an exemption to the free speech protected by the First Amendment when we say you cannot shout "fire" in a crowded theater, and he's doing that every night, he's basically using images of violence to bring together with all that he's accusing the Obama administration of..."
So free speech should be protected when it agrees with Arianna Huffington and the Progressives. Arianna, your Chavez is showing.
Roger Ailes, CEO of Fox News, has taken some of the heat as well, to which I say hats off to both Ailes and Beck! Ronald Reagan said, "When government expands, liberty contracts." Many Americans are contracting right along with our liberties. Thank God for men who stand up and shout FIRE when there is one!
Beck entertains as he exposes political motives by restoring history through film clips. If you don't have cable or Fox News, now is a good time to get it. For the sake of the country, watch Glenn Beck. Because if we don't protect America as she was meant to be, it will be taken from us. As Glenn says, America, remember who you are.
