The real violent rhetoric

The past week has sparked a lot of discussion about violent rhetoric in the media. Some have even suggested a return to the Fairness Doctrine, which would spell the end of talk radio, and now American citizens are being investigated for simply asking their congressmen questions.

Glenn read the news, “Clay Bowler has become active in politics.  Starting last year he didn't support Billy Long, the Democrat running for congress in his Missouri district.  So he started a website.  He began attending campaign events.  He even started asking the candidate tough questions.  But when Long eventually won, Bowler and his website ‘Long is Wrong’ went away.  So when the FBI showed up at his door recently saying he was perceived to be making threats to the congressman, he was shocked.  Bowler said, ‘I'm not a threat to Billy Long.  I find whole thought funny because I'm such an advocate for constitutional rights, I would never do anything that would put in jeopardy those constitutional rights like the Second Amendment.’  Bowler admitted he confronted Long in the past but never threatened him.  He said ‘I never, ever, ever threatened him’.  Bowler showed KSRP the worst of his confrontations, a YouTube video showing him walking with Long asking him questions, more of a journalistic inquiry than a threatening tirade.”

Glenn then told the story of the Fairness Doctrine, which started and then forties and went away in the late eighties.  “So the late Forties, I know at least we had Truman shot, or at least shot at and almost killed.  It was just by the grace of God that Truman wasn't assassinated.  We had JFK, Malcolm X, MLK, RFK, George Wallace, Gerald Ford, Vernon Jordan, John Lennon, Ronald Reagan and then the Fairness Doctrine went away.  Since the Fairness Doctrine ended, literally the only one we can find is Gabrielle Giffords.”

Glenn told the story of the violent rhetoric being aimed at Sarah Palin. “Have you seen the drawings and the posters of Sarah Palin?  They're in San Francisco.  There is a group SFist that is putting out posters of Sarah Palin, and it's Sarah Palin with her mouth open and flames all around her.  And I'm trying to remember the exact slogan.  We'll share it with you later on in the broadcast.  But it basically says, engulf her in rage until she understands her violence.  Excuse me?  Engulf her in rage?  And nobody's saying anything.”

The media also has no interest in covering Francis Fox Piven and her calls for violence either. Glenn’s solution? Offense.

“I want Martin Luther King Day on The Blaze, I would like that to be focused on those calling for violence, really, truly I want an expose, I want a packet on Frances Fox Piven.  I want everybody to know exactly who she is.  I want all of her articles but then I need summaries so people can consume it, so people know who she is and trying it together with The Coming Insurrection.  When she says we need to be like Greece and we need to be like England, video packages that show what that means, what she's calling -- what she's calling for.  When she says this after they're trying to beat Prince Charles and Camilla to death and screaming "Off with their heads."  No, we don't need to be like England.  No, we don't need to be like the student riots.  They were trying to set London on fire.  That doesn't help solve anything.”

Look for Glenn, The Blaze, and glennbeck.com to expose the people who are truly calling for violence on Monday.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
