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.”

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
