Glenn Beck’s Common Sense

Available in book stores nationwide…

GLENN: Ho, ho, ho, green jobs czar. But you look into Van Jones. This guy is evil. This guy is ‑‑ he is the community organizer. He’ll say and do anything, and all he is is Mr. Intimidation. That’s it. Mr. Intimidation.

STU: He’s built his career on ‑‑

GLENN: On intimidating.

STU: ‑‑ branding and intimidating and vilifying.

GLENN: That’s all he does.

STU: That’s his gig.

GLENN: You’ve got to cry race, you’ve got to cry foul of some sort. I mean, this is a bad dude. And President Obama said, you know, we played this yesterday before the show. How do I know about your policies? How do we judge your policies? How do I know? Do you remember? Everybody was saying, you know, what is change? Change to what? You’ve been very nonspecific on everything. So how do we ‑‑ while he was distancing himself from Jeremiah Wright, while he was distancing himself from, you know, Saul Alinsky and ‑‑

PAT: Rasheed Khalidi.

GLENN: Rasheed Khalidi and William Ayers and all these people, "No, no, no, I’m just friends with them," he actually said on the campaign trail these things.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: If I’m interested in figuring out my foreign policy, I associate myself with my running mate Joe Biden or with Dick Lugar, the Republican ranking member on the Senate foreign relations committee or General Jim Jones, the former supreme allied commander of NATO. Those are the people, Democrats and Republicans, who have shaped my ideas and who will be surrounding me.

GLENN: Okay. So he’s basically saying look to the people I surround myself with.

PAT: Yep. Who’s in my administration.

GLENN: Who are they? Well, they’re ‑‑ we know one.

VOICE: Ho, ho, ho, green jobs czar.

GLENN: The green jobs czar, who is a communist! A self‑proclaimed communist. Okay, so he’s shaping the views of the president of the United States. We’ve got a guy who says you can forcibly take children away from unwed mothers. We have a guy who says the planet is unsustainable with the population that we have. You should be able to put sterilants in drinking water. The man has never retracted that statement. He’s clarified: Well, I don’t think we should do it, but I think we should look into that technology. Why! Why? I think we shall be able to ‑‑ "You know what, I think we should be able to pull the eyeballs out of little children." Do you think you should just ‑‑ "No, no, I don’t really think that we should pull the eyeballs, but we should look into the technology that should allow us to pull the eyeballs out of little children." Why! No one’s willing to ask the tough questions, and I’m telling you there are many things that I believe that I shall never say, but I shall never say the things that I do not believe. Please listen. There is a tremendous amount of ill will from people in power. You must find your voice. You must take the things that we have said on this program. Ask yourself who in the mainstream media is telling you the things that we are telling you. I got a note from somebody today that will remain anonymous that is in a very powerful position that said thank God, Glenn, I know that this doesn’t mean anything to you but I stopped what I was doing to watch your show yesterday and nobody is saying that, and I appreciate it and I want you to know it doesn’t mean anything but I’m with you. I immediately wrote back and said you have no idea how much it means that you’re with me. Even if you are behind the scenes and nobody ever knows, it means a great deal because this staff feels very alone. We are trying to bring you the truth as we understand it and nobody ‑‑ you know, it’s Jack Nicholson: You don’t want the truth; you can’t handle the truth. I believe you can handle the truth. But there are billions of dollars at stake. These people are going to destroy ‑‑ I just want you to understand. I’m not suicidal, I’m not thinking about just disappearing to ‑‑ what was Olivia Newton John’s husband, found in Mexico? I’m not thinking about just disappearing. I love my family. I want my family around me forever. I wouldn’t just disappear. You know, there’s ‑‑ I’m just telling you there are people that we are effecting billions of dollars, hundreds of billions of dollars. And if you look into organizations like the Tides Foundation, the Tides Foundation, they started laying the groundwork on this back during the Reagan administration. They have been assembling an army that we have laughed at and have dismissed as a bunch of community organizers. "ACORN, what is that?" It is only the tip of the iceberg. What you see on the surface, what you are being shown every day is an iceberg. 70, 80% of this iceberg is submerged and no one is even looking for it. And those who do see it are afraid to say anything. Don’t be afraid. Ask bold questions. Root yourself and hold onto the truth. And then speak without fear. You may lose voices and you may lose them overnight. But do not ever be discouraged. Those things will be done to discourage you, to make an example out of those people. Oh, yeah? You’re next. These people are bullies. These people are thugs. If voices disappear, if voices are discredited, if voices are made to look whatever way, if voices are blamed for anything, you remember these words. They are happening for a reason. They are happening because you’re getting too close to the truth and they want to send an example to you: Don’t you dare lose your place; we’re in control. I want you to know that’s a lie. This is your country. We play by the rules in this country.

The great thing is you know that almost everybody in Washington has no spine. Find yours because I know you have one. Find yours. And when you go to these town hall meetings, you make sure you bring a video recorder. You make sure you bring a Flip video. I don’t care if it’s a gigantic 1990s Handycam, whatever it is, but you record everything. You send it to me; I’ll put it up. You watch for thugs around these rooms. You watch for anybody who happens to be saying, "Hey, so what’s your name?" You speak out. You say, then somebody comes up, wants to know your name and just pretends to be very, very nice. This is happening. "Hey, what’s your name?" Glenn Beck. Who are you? "Hey, I’m just ‑‑ you know, I’m just with one of the organizations. I just wanted to know your name. Have a good day." That’s happening. You get it on tape. I’ll show it. Don’t be intimidated. That’s what they do. And don’t you dare swing back because that’s what they want you to do. That’s what they need you to do. That I believe is what we’re being set up for. They are already planting the seeds on it’s the crazy tea partiers that just want to destroy the country and set it on fire. No, it’s not. Don’t play into it.
