Dana Milbank blatantly lies to blame Glenn for shootings

There’s nothing sadder than some completely irrelevant media figure trying to make a career out of bashing Glenn. Take Dana Milbank, a political reporter (in the loosest sense of the word) for the Washington Post and a failed author, who tried to blame Glenn and Sarah Palin for the actions of the Arizona shooter during a recent appearance on CNN.

During a segment on CNN’s Reliable Sources, Milbank was forced to defend a column where he called for Glenn and Sarah Palin to be criticized for their rhetoric, despite the fact that there has been no evidence to suggest any link between the shooter and the duo.

Mediaite has the full story here.

Glenn played the audio on radio.

“You said there's no evidence, no evidence that they inspired the Tucson gunman and then you said, and I'm quoting here, both are being held to account for recklessly playing with violent images in a way that is bound to incite the unstable.  Bound to incite the unstable.  You are connecting the dots between their rhetoric and violence,” said host Howard Kurtz.

“Well, between violence but not the -- not in this case, the Loughner case.  In a sense it's rough justice.  I think it is very important that people are held to account for this nasty rhetoric.  That is causing, in Glenn Beck's case I've documented a few cases of which it's led a crazy person to snap in the opinion of –“ Milbank responded before being cut off.

But as Pat pointed out, the case that Milbank has cited of Glenn inspiring violence has been disproved. Pat said, “He was interviewed in jail.  And the guy said specifically that you did not inspire that.  And in fact, the opposite.  He said he felt forced to act out in violence because you and others were not fighting hard enough.  So it's a directing lie.”

Stu added, “And again it's absurd standard, by any account to hold a commentator responsible for 300 million people.  It's ridiculous.” (Dana Milbank may have problems understanding this point as he has influenced approximately two people in his lifetime).

Glenn pointed out that Milbank’s language parallels that of the critics of Martin Lither King, Jr. on the days leading up to his March on Washington. “This is exactly the kind of thing that they said about Martin Luther King.  When we saw the headlines of Martin Luther King before the march on Washington, when we looked at those headlines, we went back in history, they all said the same thing.  He's going to cause a riot, he just wants violence, this is going to be -- it's going to be -- avoid Washington at all costs, and it wasn't Martin Luther King.  It wasn't the people that were on the bus.”

Glenn also mentioned how at any given time, he has fifteen operating threats on his life, and its not likely they are coming from the Tea Party. Glenn said, “ Let me ask Dana Milbank, how many operating threats does he have on him?  I have 15 at any given time.  How many of those have been caused by those on the left?  Is it the right that is coming after me and threatening my life?”

But as Stu and Pat joked, Dana Milbank doesn’t have enough influence over anyone to be responsible for the legitimate threats on Glenn’s life. Pat said, “But you need to choose somebody who actually has some influence.”

Stu jokingly added that for Dana Milbank to be responsible for the fifteen threats, he would have had to sell fifteen books.

Glenn retracted his statement, saying, “I retract that Dana Milbank could have any influence on anyone including himself.  He even reads the tripe that he writes and goes, this is tripe.”

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn explained why he wouldn't be surprised to see our supply chain collapse and empty shelves in America in the near future. Shortages are already wrecking our economy, China (where many of our goods are still made) is facing an energy shortage, and the Biden administration sure seems to be doing everything it can to make things worse.

Glenn noted a serious warning from American CEO Mike Beckham: "There's a major storm brewing in the supply chain," Beckham wrote on Twitter.

Thanks to China's centrally planned system, electricity shortages are causing huge delays in product manufacturing. In fact, some items are facing a 33 percent cut in production. "It could dramatically impact every [American's] life next year. But almost no one knows about it yet," Beckham warned.

Glenn went on to explain exactly what this means for you — and what you can do to prepare.
