GLENN: Steny Hoyer has now called Michele Bachmann an ‘n-word denier‘. I can’t get my arms around this country anymore. It is like fiction books make more sense.
PAT: Is that like being a holocaust denier.
GLENN: It’s the N word we never landed on the moon. The holocaust never happened.
PAT: And John Lewis wasn’t called the N word.
GLENN: Yeah. There’s $100,000 reward being offered right now from Andrew Breitbart. $100,000 reward if anybody can produce the audio of John Lewis — are you kidding me? In the sea of tea party-ers.
PAT: It was supposedly yelled 15 times.
GLENN: 15 times. With all of those cameras, all of the media, all of the video cameras, all of the personal things, quite honestly I find it hard to believe that somebody in that group didn’t have a tape recorder on them themselves. Because, remember, they’re walking into the most dangerous group of people since the 1960s.
PAT: Who were those people in the 1960s.
GLENN: Oh, yeah, William Ayers and a lot of those people that are now in Congress. So there’s no audiotape of it. We have now shown that the story was damn near impossible to write. Have we done the time line?
PAT: Yeah. It was 90 minutes from the time it occurred to the time it appeared online.
GLENN: Now, here’s the thing. Think of this. Nancy Pelosi decides to walk to the Capitol for the vote. In a 90-minute period, she leaves, she walks across. They claim that the N word has been spoken 15 times. In that 90-minute period, while the House was voting, they interviewed five different people and got them on the phone. Got the Congressmen that are voting on this historic bill, got them on the phone, got the story, followed up on the story. Wrote the story. Edited the story, passed it through to the online department and posted the story in 90 minutes. That is either the most reckless journalism you’ve ever seen, or that story was written before it happened and all they did was fill in the blanks. There’s nobody that’s writing a detailed story with interviews in 90 minutes, turning it around, having it edited and posted in 90 minutes. It’s not possible. It’s not possible. As a complete surprise, somebody gets — 90 minutes. Start the clock. 90 minutes. How long did it take them to walk across? Ten minutes. 15 minutes? How long did it take them to leave one office and get to another office and be able to say, my gosh, that was incredible? We should let somebody know. Somebody get the Washington Post on the phone. Get the Washington Post. How far are we now? Half an hour? Get the Washington Post on the phone. Miss Pelosi, it’s time for the vote. She and the other members are now on the floor voting and doing interviews with the Washington Post that’s incredible.
PAT: They’re multi-taskers. This group of Congress people — they can vote and talk to the Washington Post and probably do a load of laundry all at the same time.
GLENN: I’m telling you, I find it — the world is upside down. Now, I’m not saying that nobody said the N word, because there are a lot of stupid people in this country. And there’s also a lot of angry people. And when you get angry you say things you don’t mean. I hope that that didn’t happen. Could it have happened? Yes. But there’s no evidence that it happened.
PAT: I think it’s reasonable to doubt.
GLENN: I do too.
PAT: Here’s what Hoyer said. "I think it undermines the credibility of somebody who is a denier. People denied a lot of things happen, bad things that happened." Sounds like he’s alluding to the Holocaust there. "So I don’t think there’s any doubt that what John Lewis said happened happened, and what others saw and heard did in fact happen."
GLENN: Hang on a second. So John Lewis has more credibility than anybody else, anybody else?
GLENN: I mean, I don’t have anything wrong with John Lewis. I don’t have anything against him. He seems like a nice fellow and God bless him. But show me the evidence, John. That’s quite a charge you’re making. And then Steny Hoyer has more credibility than Michele Bachmann?
STU: And the significant thing about denying the holocaust you’re denying it in the face of so much evidence. That’s why it’s significant. There’s no evidence here.
GLENN: You’re looking at the ovens.
STU: Right. And you’re seeing the pictures. And the families are speaking about the incidents that happened to them that they survived.
PAT: The mass graves.
GLENN: Can I tell you something? If somebody could come and we were at war and somebody would come and say we have — you know we have evidence they’re putting people in ovens, and it was one person, unless it’s Jesus, I don’t think I would buy it. I mean — let me ask you this: If we just had one person saying we should go into Iraq for weapons of mass destruction, just one, and it was John Lewis, should we have gone in.
STU: And everyone that didn’t agree with it would be a denier?
GLENN: Weapons of mass destruction denier. We have plenty of evidence. As it turned out there weren’t any bombs. We had evidence. We had lots of people saying, no, he’s making them, no, he’s making them, no, they’re hidden here. We had tons of evidence what he was doing and how it was working.
STU: And lots of witnesses.
GLENN: On the ground.
STU: That’s where we got a lot of that intelligence from.
PAT: All the way to the Russians.
GLENN: And it turned out to be wrong. Huh? Are they weapons of mass destruction deniers? Anyone who disagrees, anyone who disagrees is a denier, a racist, a hatemonger. This doesn’t end well. It doesn’t end well. First Amendment. Michael, is this you?
VOICE: This is crazy. Remember when things made sense in the world, when I had sleep overs with the 12-year-old boy children that’s when things made sense. What kind of freak would talk about N word deniers? Remember the days of Pat Llamas, that’s when the world made sense. I had a hundred-foot ferris wheel in my backyard. That’s when things made sense. I had a pet monkey that I fed bananas, and I slept in a hyperbaric chamber. That’s when things made sense. Things are crazy now. Don’t you wish we could go back to that time of sleeping with the 12-year-old boy children? And feeding them Jesus juice. (Laughter)
GLENN: You know what’s really sad, while I don’t necessarily like your case of what we’d be going back to, the world did make more sense when Michael Jackson was sleeping with children. It made — it’s like, oh, geez, remember the good old days when we just had Michael Jackson?
VOICE: Things are too crazy now. What kind of freaks are these? I have to go now.
