More leftist hypocrisy

What’s with all the hypocrisy from the left? The media hammers talk radio for causing the Arizona shooter to snap, but should they also be blaming Hollywood or video games?

The topic came off as the radio guys played some audio from Al Sharpton. You can see the whole video from The Blaze here.

“We've had shootings in urban America and even in rural America in black communities and there are no gun manufacturing plants in these communities.  These guns are brought in.  Kids have become in my opinion seduced with this whole gangster/thug kind of culture that we've got to confront.  They are no longer looking to role models as a Dr. King or a Malcolm X. But they are looking to people like Scarface.  We've got to confront it, we've got to deal with it directly because it's killing people in our communities.  And on Dr. King Day, there's no more important lessons who himself was killed with gunfire.”

When asked by Danny Deutsch if Arizona, which was one of the last states to recognize Martin Luther King Day, should secede from the Union, Sharpton said, “Well, I think on today ‑‑ they have seceded.  I mean, this is a federal holiday, this is something that the country can celebrate the progress we've made, and I think we have.  I think when you look at what Dr. King and others fought for in the Fifties and the Sixties, we made a lot of progress.  But now we've got to confront the reality of today.  There's still a lot of institutional inequality we've got to deal with.”

Strangely, neither Sharpton nor Danny Deutsch seemed to know that Arizona does in fact recognize “Martin Luther King/Civil Rights Day”.

The radio crew examined Sharpton’s statements.

Pat said, “First of all, didn't he mention that the kids today that are using guns are looking to Scarface?  Wait a minute.  Doesn't that indict Hollywood?  Isn't that where Scarface came from? “

The guys joked that if Sharpton is referring to the 1980s Al Pacino film, he may be a little behind on his pop culture references.

Stu pointed out he could be talking about the rapper Scarface and violence in rap music, but by that point the conversation had degenerated into a joke fest involving Sharpton, Don Imus, and Hollywood.

But then Glenn pointed out that the left should also attack video games as you could argue they desensitize kids to violence. Glenn said, “When you are shooting, when you are shooting someone and it's as real as you can and you can, you know, run over people on the sidewalk, et cetera, et cetera, I think it desensitizes you.”

Pat added, “But the great thing is, if you bring that up, the left goes apoplectic in their defense for video games:  ‘How dare you, that has nothing to do with it!’” He added, “But just talking about politics in a heated way is responsible.”

Stu pointed out that even if video games desensitize people to violence, you shouldn’t blame them for people committing violence. This is the same logic that the left should apply to movies, music, and talk radio. But of course they won’t, because talk radio doesn’t fit their agenda.

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.

Every decision made by President Joe Biden has ended in "disaster," Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck.

O'Reilly joined the radio program to explain why he thinks there's only one "mechanism" Americans can use stop the Biden administration's mess.

"Give me one thing that [Biden] has done, just one, that's improved this nation. Everything that he has been involved with is a disaster. Everything from the COVID mandates, to the energy policies, to the economic policies, to the inflation, to Afghanistan, to the collapsing southern border, to the social woke business, to the denial of due process. Right across-the-board, there isn't anything this man has done, or stood for, that's improved America," O'Reilly said.

"But there is no mechanism to do anything about it until a year from this November: the midterm elections. That's the only mechanism that we have, under the Constitution. We elected this guy and he's there for four years. You neutralize him next November [2022], with the Republicans taking back the House and Senate, then he's done. [He] can't do anymore damage because you've got him in a hole. And he's not going to be proactive with executive orders. He's just going to stay there in his jammies for two more years. OK? So that's the only mechanism."

O'Reilly also tore into the corporate media for using its power to defend Gen. Mark Milley after news of his China calls broke. Is there any deterrence in American society anymore to keep our leaders and media in check?

"What does this say to the United States of America when you have two of the most powerful information agencies in the world — NBC, Comcast, and AT&T, CNN — actively deceiving you?" O'Reilly said. "They know what they're doing. And yet there is absolutely no way for anyone to hold them accountable other than not watching them, which has, of course, happened. You know they have no audience. But just the corruption level of the information flow to the American people is at an all-time high. We have never had a worse media in the history of this republic."
