By The Right Scoop


Bill Whittle spoke the other day at the Beverly Hills Tea Party and I must say it was excellent. When he began he said that his job was to scare us to death and then explain why he has so much hope for us overcoming the big problems we face. I’m not sure he succeeded on the former, but definitely the latter.

He broke the speech up into seven categories that he believes most Tea Party members would agree on and then elaborated on them, some at great length. The seven categories are limited government and free enterprise, distrust of elitism, wealth creation, natural law, legal immigration, gun rights, and American exceptionalism.

It’s about 28 minutes long but you have to watch to the end to hear his analogy of where he thinks we are as a country at this point. It was awesome:

    I love Bill Whittle. This was a great speech. I agree with everything he said and I do not say that often. Thanks for this great post. I loved the Patton analogy.

    Whittle is a genius and a very good orator. He has an amazing ability to put complicated philosophy into simple words, words so simple that even dimwits like Obama-voters can understand.
    This vid needs to go viral.
    He needs to speak in bigger fora , like CPAC and Repub Conventions.
    Oh how I wish Whittle would take down that resident idiot of FNC , Beckel :O
    on live TV .
    Thnx a hugzillion for posting it TRS

    Outstanding. I love Bill Whittle. I’m going to forward this to my daughter at college who just informed me today that she is the only non-liberal in her sociology class and she is going crazy trying to present the alternative viewpoint. She emailed me for some ammunition, and I think I just found it. Thanks RS!

    Wow!

    This is the biggest Wow of anything Scoop has had.

    A must see.

    • Anonymous

      Heck… I’ll even go further…

      If Whittle were to title his delivery, he should call it:

      “How God Set UP The World: And how to succeed in it, even if you are a non-believer”

      Natural Law says it all.

    Bill Whittle is the BEST. I love the close, “do you think Bill Marr is going to put his life on the line on some foreign battlefield for what he believes in?” Of course not, never.

      Bill Marr cannot comprehend such a thought.

    I watched all of it. Very good speech. Bill has a way with words. The seven things everyone can agree with was a nice way to outline what he wanted to get across.

  • Anonymous

    Whittle’s speeches and videos are always goosebump inducing. He just needs to reach more people. Maybe we should forward some of his videos to our eventual candidate.

    Amazing speech! It’s like standing in front of a rhetoric machine gun.

      a useful “rhetoric machine gun,” I might add.

    I don’t have time to watch the speech, but I think the core tea party issues are different. Immigration is too controversial – not all agree. Not all are gun owners (though all support the constitution in its entirety, including the 2nd am).

    It’s true that the tea party are suspect of elites, but that is not a defining characteristic.

    The core issues are support for:
    a) limited (less intrusive, smaller) federal gov’t
    b) less federal gov’t spending/low taxes
    c) free markets
    d) fidelity to the Constitution
    e) self-reliance (as opposed to the nanny state).

      I suggest you might consider making time. This man is brilliant.

      Take the time… everything you said are implicit in Whittle’s speech.

    I love Bill Whittle. He is incredible. He needs to be a speech writer for whoever gets the Republican nomination or better still a consultant. With him at their side they couldn’t go wrong. I too love his show on PJTV.

    yeah, what HE said!! it’s folks like Whittle that make me realize (even when the headlines have me discouraged on any given day) that THIS is why I can’t give up, I won’t give in…that’s the AMERICA I want! not some ball & chain on my leg…

    I don’t know if I’d use the iPhone as an example of American exceptionalism. After all, the aforementioned Chinese slaves actually manufacture the iPhone. When Henry Ford invented the Model T he didn’t send the designs straight to China to have them manufacture it, he hired Americans to do it and gave them an unparalleled standard of living out of his profits. Of course, thanks to big labor and big govt Apple can’t cost-effectively produce the iPhone in the U.S. like they should. How the iPhone is made is big example of what the problem is.

    • Anonymous

      Yeah, just think if Apple could produce the iPhone here and people could work for any decent living wage (not union Cadillac wages — oh, I am so funny!) How much unemployment would we have then, if our entrepreneurs did not have to send out for reasonable labor to produce their goods??

    I could listen to this every day, Bill Whittle should speak at every school and legislature in the country. He speaks truths that NEED to be heard and could be a real tonic to reinstill patriotism in all of us.

    Fabulous speech. Finally found time to listen.

    I have felt alone in saying IT DOES NOT HAVE TO HAPPEN HERE, and now none other than Bill Whittle says Just because all those other civilizations fell does not mean we have to. We ARE different…so let’s go. We’ve got work to do!!

  • Anonymous

    Listening again, just for fun. I love that he says we are NOT like those other civilizations that fell, that even though we are following the same historical curve of previous civilizations who have gone by the wayside, we are FUNDAMENTALLY DIFFERENT and goes on to enumerate exactly how and why. Bravo!!!
