KC Star sets itself up for humiliation

You can read our original story here

If you watched the show or checked the site yesterday, you probably saw Glenn’s coverage of an assassination attempt on the Governor of Missouri, which was largely ignored by the national media. Glenn made a big deal about the lack of coverage, which upset The Kansas City Star, and one of their reporters wrote a whole article about Glenn’s coverage despite not tuning into the show or tracking down the audio. However, if the Kansas City Star had listened to the show they would have known Glenn did acknowledge the paper.

“[We] specifically mention the Kansas City Star and their coverage of it as one of the very few who did,” Stu said.

The Kansas City Star article seemed to be offended with the way Glenn covered the story, so Stu and Pat decided to tackle some of the articles main points.

From the Kansas City Star (Stu and Pat’s responses will be in parentheses.)

1. “The story was big local news, occupying the lead position on the Sept. 15 and 16 Star front pages, both times with the color mugshot of the suspect. Every other major news source in town also played it very prominently.” (“Again, though, we weren't talking about whether the incident was reported on.  We were talking about why Che Guevara and all the leftwing rhetoric this guy was doing it for seemed to be completely eliminated from the coverage” – Stu. “And why nobody else picked it up, I mean, you would think that would be a national story, not just a local Kansas City one.” – Pat)

2. “Brezik had years earlier been diagnosed with the serious mental illness of paranoid schizophrenia -- something that I believe most reasonable people would agree obviates drawing any conclusions about how his supposed political beliefs may have informed his actions.” ( “You mean like what our entire argument was about Tucson, the point that the fact that he's probably crazy ‑‑ it has nothing to do with politics?” - Stu)

3. “It's nonsense to declare it wasn't reported elsewhere. A cursory check of the Nexis news database shows that it most certainly did play in the media outside this area, in sources as far-flung as The Virginian-Pilot in Norfolk, Va., The Bismarck Tribune in North Dakota, and the National Journal's Hotline. Multiple stories went out on the Associated Press wire, and they surely ran in papers and on websites around the world.” (“The reason he uses as far‑flung instead of naming a bunch of them is because that was about it.” – Stu).

Stu pointed out that, while the story should have been more prominently covered on the national level, the show’s main issue was the fact that the assassins leftist interests were neglected in all the coverage.

“I think we came up with seven examples or eight examples of people who picked up the story of the assassination, not the part about how he loved Che Guevara and was doing violent riots that some people, some pie‑baking professors are calling for, by the way, that he was involved in those sorts of things and we seem to be the only one talking about that and a few states like Red State and American Thinker who pointed it out yesterday.  That's the part of the story that we're saying is unfairly uncovered.  Although it wasn't a big enough story in the national conversation.  When you have a governor who's almost killed, it's kind of a big deal,” Stu concluded.

The long-awaited New York Attorney General's report on the sexual harassment allegations against Gov. Andrew Cuomo is out — and it is bad for Cuomo. The Democratic AG concluded that the Governor did sexually harass multiple women during his time in office.

On Tuesday's radio program, Glenn Beck questioned is the AG's report would be enough for Democrats to condemn him and call for his resignation? This is what the #MeToo movement was started for, Glenn noted, if Gov. Cuomo doesn't resign quickly, that says a whole lot about today's Democratic Party.

Critical race theory: The education trap

The fall semester isn't far away. If you aren't prepared for that, someone else is. Predatory behavior. The most important takeaway from this piece is, whatever is happening on campuses right now is what is going to play out through the rest of society in about 30 years. We're seeing it right now with Critical Race Theory.

It started on the campus. It started in the classroom. And our children are set to be the next victims in the cultural warfare for a nightmare that seems like it will never end.

Colleges are manipulating the system.

It's a little ironic that colleges are overflowing with Marxist professors who preach the Gospel of Karl Marx in their classrooms, because academia in America is the perfect example of capitalist achievement. If anything, colleges are manipulating the system in a way that should make Marxists furious. And they hurt the people that Marxism is supposed to rescue.

Colleges are an enterprise. They are Big Business. It means nothing to them to send thousands of students into debt—not if it means the campus will get a new fountain or another office for the Diversity and Inclusion department.

They'll never admit it, but a big part of their problem is that they have put so much into the myth of progress. They can't even admit that it's a myth. Because it's useful to them.

Roger Scruton once said:

Hence the invocations of "progress", of "growth", of constant "advance" towards the goal which, however, must remain always somewhere in the future.

In reality, they don't give a damn about actual progress.

That's how they have turned academia into instruments of social engineering. They use college to change society.

Their purpose is no longer educational. It's social. They're using the classrooms to cause social change.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere were joined by Pat Gray to discuss "woke" Olympic athletes.

In this clip, the guys discussed how "bravely" some athletes are for threatening to protest the national anthem, for twerking on stage, and for showing off how woke they are.

Glenn reminded America of actual bravery at the Olympics when Jesse Owens won the gold medal at the Berlin Olympics. "He [Owens] was oppressed," Glenn said.

Political commentator Bill O'Reilly joined the Glenn Beck radio program on Friday made an important prediction about President Joe Biden's chance of reelection in 2024.

O'Reilly told Glenn that former President Donald Trump was brought down because of COVID. "if COVID had not appeared, O'Reilly stated, "he [Trump] would have won reelection."

O'Reilly went on to predict that like Trump, President Joe Biden would lose reelection because of COVID. People saw a president who could not put out an intelligent fact-based message about COVID and people will remember that," he explained.

O'Reilly later added that "Trump and Biden are one-termers because of COVID."
