Fox News President Roger Ailes appearing on ABC Sunday…
GLENN: Could we play the Arianna Huffington thing here real quick? Here’s Arianna Huffington. She was on Roger Ailes was on this week with Barbara Walters, and Roger Ailes and the president and I think CEO of Fox News. He rarely is on television. He was on with Arianna Huffington. Here, play this.
HUFFINGTON: And aren’t you concerned about the language that Glenn Beck is using?
PAT: Would you not think that that’s Zsa Zsa Gabor?
STU: You are right, it does sound exactly like her.
HUFFINGTON: Is inciting the American people.
GLENN: I’d like an example of incitement. Show it to me.
STU: How about what you’re inciting. If you are inciting something, what is it that has been incited?
PAT: It’s obviously inciting the in what way is it obvious and what has been incited?
STU: I love how she says it like it’s this foregone conclusion.
HUFFINGTON: There’s a lot of suffering out there and when he talks about people
PAT: What is this, suffering?
STU: What’s suffering?
HUFFINGTON: About who is going to be the next
AILES: Well, he’s talking about Hitler and Stalin slaughtering people. So I think he was probably accurate. Also, I don’t
HUFFINGTON: No, no, he was talking about this administration.
PAT: Did you get that? No, no, he is talking about this administration.
STU: Right. They are showing a documentary about what we did showing
GLENN: I don’t know if that’s what she meant.
STU: She said slaughtering people.
GLENN: I don’t know that I’ve ever used the word "Slaughtered" and if I used the word "Slaughtered," if it wasn’t in a context of Mao, Stalin or Hitler, it was in the idea that the truth is being slaughtered by this administration. Not saying that the administration is going to slaughter anyone.
PAT: Never, never.
GLENN: I have said that progressives, progressives, this ideology has led to the slaughtering of millions. It has. It has. In particular eugenics. That is a wonderful progressive idea of breed the stupidity out of people and they are just too stupid. So if they can’t be bred out, then we’re just going to have to liquidate them. Yeah, I’ve said that but I don’t think Obama was there in the eugenics, you know, programs in the early 20th century. Did I
PAT: I don’t think you’ve ever said, 125 years old, I don’t think you’ve ever
STU: I think there’s conspiracy theories that he was born in a different place but never that he was 125 years old. I missed that one.
GLENN: So she goes on. She goes on to say that I’m inciting people, which is completely ridiculous.
PAT: Some great stuff from Roger Ailes at the end of this.
GLENN: Can we play it real quick?
PAT: You want to come back to it or do you want to do it now?
GLENN: I have some news. I asked some friends of mine who have friends in the CIA to give me some analysis on something else that has happened. China has been removed as a top priority from our spy list. Now, how many times have we heard that China is conducting war games, cyber warfare against us in the last two years? All the time.
PAT: I only heard every day.
GLENN: Yeah, every day.
PAT: That’s the last thing I heard was that literally
GLENN: Every day.
PAT: Every day.
GLENN: Obama has just removed them from our top spy list.
STU: That’s great. So that must be over. Today must be the first day.
GLENN: Can I tell you something? You couldn’t be more right. It is over. How is that even possible? I’m going to read the responses without the names attached of the people that I reached out to today who are in the intelligence community and I said, what do you make of this? Because this doesn’t make any sense. I’ll read them at the top of the hour. You don’t want to miss it. Because their explanations do make sense and it will tell you how much trouble we’re really in.
All right, real quick I want to come back with what Roger Ailes responded that you said that
PAT: Yeah, it was good stuff.
GLENN: To Arianna Huffington? Explain.
PAT: Okay, he is, Roger Ailes is being asked about you and aren’t you inciting violence and he said, no, he is not inciting violence, he is just and she mentioned slaughtering, that you are saying this administration is going to slaughter people. And he said, no, you were talking about Stalin and Hitler and those people. And
GLENN: And my favorite line, I believe Mr. Beck speaks English and so I don’t have a hard time translating him.
PAT: I think that’s coming you the right now.
AILES: I think he speaks English. I don’t know. I mean, I don’t misinterpret any of his words. I don’t think it’s I think if we start going around as the word police in this business, it will be
HUFFINGTON: It’s not about the word police. It’s about something deeper. It’s about the fact that there is a tradition as the historian Richard Hofstetter said, in American politics, of the paranoid style. And the paranoid style is dangerous when there is real pain out there.
AILES: I agree with you. I read something on your blog that said I look like J. Edgar Hoover, I had a face like a fist and I was essentially a malignant tumor
GLENN: Stop, stop, stop. Let me just say this.
PAT: That’s great, that’s great.
GLENN: Arianna Huffington, I would like you to explain this. The last time and the only time that I’ve ever seen you or spoken to you, you asked me to write for the Huffington Post and tried to convince me that it would be good because you are so open minded and everything else. Now, were you trying to incite people when you asked me to write for the Huffington Post? Or are you going to deny that? It was I can tell you when it was. It was at the Time Most Influential 100 dinner last year when I was an absolute nobody. But I was on Fox News and I was saying the same stuff. What?
STU: So Person A asks Person B to write for them, then Person B blows them off. Then Person A goes on national television and says they are inciting violence.
GLENN: That’s weird.
GLENN: That’s weird.
GLENN: Arianna, darling, get up on the telephone pole and call me, will you?
PAT: It’s not about that, darling. It’s about honor the pig, honor on green acres, that’s what it’s really about, darling.
GLENN: Don’t, don’t, you are inciting pigs to go over to her house.
PAT: Honor the pig.
