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.

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."
