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.”

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."
