Javier Milei — an anarcho-capitalist libertarian — has just shocked the world by winning the presidency in socialist Argentina.
Glenn Beck is shocked along with the rest of the world.
“He is the exact opposite of really anything, any kind of politician, that we have seen here that is even close to being president of the United States — even Donald Trump,” he says.
While Milei has been exhaustively compared to Donald Trump by the media, Beck and Stu Burguiere don’t believe they’re that alike at all.
Stu notes that Milei’s closest similarity to Trump is that “he’s super outspoken” but also describes himself as an anarcho-capitalist, “which is not how Donald Trump would describe himself at all.”
The new president’s plan apparently includes completely uprooting the current state of the Argentinian government and shutting down different government agencies.
“Is he going to do those things?” Stu asks, adding, “I hope so.”
Argentinian President Javier Milei isn’t the only freedom-loving winner as of late.
On November 22, Geert Wilders’ Party for Freedom won 37 seats out of 150 in the Dutch government. Like Milei, Wilders is painted by the opposition as a far-right extremist.
“There’s two people now that the press say, ‘Out of control, worse than Hitler,’” Glenn says, noting that while the press isn’t fond of them — the world seems to be moving more toward a freedom mindset.
“Here’s what you should take away from all of this movement politically, cause it’s happening in Europe, and it’s happening in South America. It is moving away — hard — from the left and going right,” Glenn explains.
“These guys, if they work,” he continues, “this is going to be a huge move for the world, back to more freedom and common sense.”
