Arguing with Idiots: How to Stop Small Minds and Big Government
by Glenn Beck
GLENN: So there are apparently, apparently there is and I’m just going to there’s always games being played behind the scenes at a talk radio show and on television and everything else. It is really, it’s very, I don’t know, it’s disappointing. Rush has called them on the games in radio behind the scenes, Rush has always called them seminar callers. But instead of being coy with the seminar callers or with you, I’m just going to expose the game that is going on. Today there is a concerted effort on all radio stations to get Birthers on the air. I have to tell you, are you working for the Barack Obama administration? I mean, that’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. First of all let me just let’s just play these out. If you are a Birther, you believe that the president of the United States was born in, they think Kenya, right? So he was
STU: Anywhere outside of here, I guess, but yeah.
GLENN: Anywhere outside of the U.S. So he was born in Kenya.
PAT: I think it was Managua, Nicaragua.
GLENN: So you believe that he was born outside of the United States of America. And then somehow or another he became and I saw this movie with Frank Sinatra oh, yeah, it’s called the Manchurian Candidate. So somehow or another maybe he was indoctrinated or whatever and then he came over here and he ran and became president.
STU: Well, he also, you’ve got to remember that he preemptively planted his birth announcements in the Hawaii newspapers back when he was actually born.
PAT: Knowing, I mean, his parents knew at the time that someday this man would become president of the United States.
GLENN: That’s what they want you to think.
GLENN: So he preemptively put those birth announcements there.
PAT: Then hypnotized somehow Hillary Clinton to not find out any of this.
GLENN: Well, not only hypnotized but also
PAT: She’s pretty
GLENN: I believe is somehow or another in league with the people that have you know, did you see men in black?
GLENN: Did you see the little flasher thing? Got all of the investigators, and anyone will tell you when the Clintons run for office, you can’t get a PI in New York. Can’t get one.
STU: You can’t, no, no way.
GLENN: Seriously because they’re using all of them.
GLENN: The Clintons can. You can’t.
GLENN: Because they use all of them. Somehow or another the Clinton machine couldn’t get their hands on this Birther thing or they did and then for some reason didn’t want to release it.
STU: You know why? Maybe Hillary didn’t want to be president. Maybe she wanted to be Secretary of State really bad.
STU: If the Clintons were known for ambition, maybe you’d have something there.
GLENN: If the Clintons, if the charges were from the right that the Clintons kill people for the presidency.
GLENN: I have a hard time getting my arms around how they’re not
PAT: She’s secretly more powerful in the position she’s in now.
STU: That must be it.
PAT: If she’s so low profile, highly unlikely
GLENN: It is the case that global warming, the world is so hot that it’s now cold. You are right. Thank you for that, Pat.
PAT: She is so low profile, she is high profile.
GLENN: So you have that on one side. The other side is he didn’t pre emptively plant a story as a newborn. That maybe he was born in the United States of America.
STU: And just to clarify, that would be two separate stories in two separate newspapers that he planted as an infant. It’s ridiculous to plant one.
PAT: If you are going to do it, do it right. When babies do things, they do it extremely well.
GLENN: Extremely well, okay. Well, it could have been his KGB control.
PAT: Yes. He has controllers who
GLENN: Yes. Don’t know, don’t know.
PAT: Have taken control of him from birth.
GLENN: Don’t know when the Soviet Union started to recruit.
STU: Right. But some
GLENN: Could be at birth in Kenya.
STU: It could be. That’s how you start.
PAT: If you are going for a future president of the United States, naturally you go to Kenya.
GLENN: Of course you do. Of course you do.
PAT: You find a Kenyan.
STU: Especially in the Sixties. You are thinking African Americans.
PAT: In the Sixties.
STU: You are thinking this is the guy.
GLENN: Yes, you are. Well, they’ve got a roadmap.
STU: They thought all of these complaints and have already defeated them.
PAT: Don’t call it KGB for nothing, they are cagey… B.
GLENN: The other idea is that he was born here in America.
STU: Oh, come on.
GLENN: Wait, wait.
STU: Who would think that?
GLENN: Hold on. I know it’s way out on a limb here. But as the guy who the media says is the king of conspiracy theories, all I do are forward conspiracy theories, let me forward this conspiracy. He was born here because it seems a little unlikely that somebody planted the birth records, okay, a little unlikely, in the newspapers. Now you would say, well, then why doesn’t he just produce? Good question. That one kept me up for minutes at a time, minutes.
PAT: That long?
PAT: So you tossed and turned for literally minutes?
STU: Not whole minutes.
GLENN: Not whole minutes. Parts of minutes.
PAT: Parts of minutes on different nights?
GLENN: May I go out onto this conspiratorial limb, please. If I’m Barack Obama which I want you to know I’m not, but if I yes, you haven’t seen us at parties together, I know. But let’s say I were Barack Obama and I had somebody who was forwarding a conspiracy like this.
PAT: And looking stupid doing it?
GLENN: Yeah. And then my advisors would come in and go, let’s just make this go away. Here’s an idea: Just call the doctor, just get the nurse. Just, here, let’s just have, you know, three really credible people examine the birth certificate because really let’s just make this go away so we can get on the work with the American people. If I were Barack Obama, I would say, no, now, wait a minute; why do that when these people are so discrediting themselves because if I can get them to discredit themselves and they’ll use the argument, "Well, you think it’s nonsense to have him answer that question when it’s in the Constitution? He would be the first unconstitutional president!" Yes. But I believe he already is, seeing that healthcare is against the Constitution. The fundamental transformation of the country is a little unconstitutional.
STU: Right. When you’ve lost 40 points off your approval rating, the only thing you have left is the people who are coming out and yelling about your birth certificate. The only positive this guy has left.
GLENN: Yeah. So why would you discredit yourself? Why would let’s say it’s true. Let’s just say it’s true that he’s not. Do you really think that is the fastest way to get him out? Do you really think that’s the fastest way to stop him from what I believe is the fundamental transformation of this country? Do you think that’s going to stop healthcare?
GLENN: If you could, if, if you could hold his feet to the fire and say, "Produce the doctors and the nurses and the birth certificate" and somehow or another he couldn’t do it, how long would it take you to get to that point? And in that point, in that time how much of the fundamental trans do you still have control of the court system in that time?
PAT: You should be able to get that to the Supreme Court by about 2015 1/2. I’d say by late October 2015.
PAT: You get that right to the Supreme Court, yeah.
STU: There’s a helpful conversion chart for Birthers which is Birthers are to Barack Obama as Megan Fox is to every 14 year old boy. A lovely, beautiful dream come true.
GLENN: Dream come true. Dream come true.
STU: There is nothing he could possibly want more than Birthers talking about birthing.
PAT: And look how often the MSNBCs of the world bring it up.
GLENN: Oh, yeah.
PAT: Even if the story has nothing to do with Birthers, they bring them into the story just to throw in another discredited movement.
STU: That’s what they do with healthcare. They find the one Birther sign at a healthcare rally and make the healthcare rally about the Birthers. That’s what they do. They’re using you.
PAT: They love it. They love it.
GLENN: It is the same as, it’s the same as carrying signs that show Hitler on it. Nobody is saying that Barack Obama is Hitler. Nobody is saying that. What they are saying is that the Nazi regime started in very much the same way. I mean, it started with an economic trouble, it started with a guy who said one thing but meant, well, meant what he said, actually meant something. You go back and you read Mein Kampf. He laid it all out. But the people wouldn’t believe it.
STU: Right. And that does not mean that Barack Obama’s going to start the Holocaust.
GLENN: He is not going to start the Holocaust and he’s not going to turn us into a Nazi regime.
STU: Right. But the bottom line is believing people who are what they say. He promised changing the economy. He promised energy prices skyrocketing because of his policy.
STU: He promised a lot of things leading up to this. We should probably listen to them.
GLENN: Now, is it going to be Nazi like? No. Because the Nazis are Nazis. Is it going to be Mao like? Well, there’s one that they really do like. They think power comes from the power, the end of the gun. That’s according to Ron Bloom. Anita Dunn believes that. Is it going to be Marxist like? Is it going to be like reverend Jeremiah Wright believes America should be? I don’t know what it’s going to be. I just think we need to start listening to the man. But every time you put a Nazi sign up, that is yet Megan Fox coming in and making out with, who? Give me another hot chick?
STU: Ooh, let’s go. This is a better show than what I thought it was going to be.
GLENN: That’s what it is. That’s what it is. It’s Barack Obama looks at the Birthers as Megan Fox and the Nazi signs as
STU: The sweetness in there, let’s get a little Carrie Underwood in there, get a sweet
GLENN: Carrie Underwood. And he’s like, look and make out; that is fantastic.
STU: And it’s really hard to think about healthcare right now.
GLENN: Really hard.
STU: Really hard.
GLENN: Why don’t we concentrate on healthcare? Because once healthcare passes, I told you before, it doesn’t matter. As they have demonstrated, it doesn’t matter what’s in the bill! They take it in, put it in, take it out. Doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter who’s for it, who’s against it. They will bribe their way to it. Why? Why? Do you have the audio of one of the senators explaining why that it’s the starter house. Do you remember, was it you, Pat? You and I were listening to that?
PAT: We were. We were listening to that.
GLENN: Who was it that said that?
PAT: Chris Dodd.
GLENN: It was Chris Dodd.
PAT: Chris Dodd, uh huh.
GLENN: I am tired of the people on the left saying they didn’t have all the things and what they have to understand is this is a starter home! You have to lay the foundation! We can add other wings to it! We can add additions later!
STU: It was our entire case leading up to this.
GLENN: Sure was.
PAT: Exactly. It was everything we’ve said it was going to be, spilling right out of Chris Dodd’s mouth.
GLENN: So why don’t we concentrate on those things. Because they’re provable. They’re actionable. And they and once these in, once these things are in, you ain’t gonna have a courtroom to be able to go back on him. You give this kind of movement, if they continue this kind of movement over the next four years, I don’t know what the hell you have left in the end. So why don’t we go after the things that are provable, after the things that actually you need to stop right now. And if you want to argue, you want to argue, then let’s argue based in fact, based on things that are provable and true. And what do you say? Do you want to argue the Constitution? Good. Let’s show the number of people in congress and in the Senate that don’t even read the Constitution. Can’t tell you right now if healthcare is even in the Constitution. Let’s talk to the scholars. Let’s talk to the average Joe that understands this isn’t in the Constitution. Let’s argue the Constitution on the laws and the systems that they are building today. Instead of arguing the Constitution and whether or not he was born in America, why don’t we argue the constitutionality of a little known thing called czars. And the power that these people have. Back in a minute.
