Glenn and The Grammys: What did he think of Muse?

What has been the shocker of the morning? Glenn started off the show with coverage of the Grammys! One of Glenn’s favorite bands, Muse, performed and he talked about the performance and put it into the context of the current political atmosphere.

“I want to start some place unusual.  I want to start with the Grammys last night and the video and the audio of Muse.  Muse, I don't know, did they win anything last night?” Glenn asked, obviously carrying less about the bands awards than the messages of their music.

“ I didn't watch the Grammys.  Don't really care,” he added.

Muse won Best Rock Album.

“They are unbelievable, in the unbelievable group, and this is a song that we played on this program about a year ago and I said, listen to the lyrics of this.  Now, go ahead and roll the tape of Muse last night on the Grammys.  Now, it starts with the video screens in the back with the Gadsden flag, the snake saying don't tread on me,” Glenn said.

They then played Muse’s “Uprising”.

“The lyrics of this song are so unbelievably powerful and they are ‑‑ they are not going to degrade us anymore, they're not going to ‑‑ they're not going to shape us or anything else.  It's us,” Glenn said of the song’s lyrics.

“We have the power.  In the lyrics here, they're talking about how paranoia is everywhere, they are trying to push drugs and everything else to keep us all dumbed down”

“They will not force us.  They'll stop degrading us.  They will not control us.  We'll be victorious.”

Glenn explained that the song provided the inspiration for the 2010 theme of his radio show.

During Muse’s performance, the Gadsden flag was shown at the beginning. Why was this significant?

“The Gadsden flag at the beginning of this has been, you know, represents in many ways the Tea Party spirit,” he explained. “At the end of this it shows Camilla and Prince Charles in the back of their Rolls Royce where they are trying to beat them and kill them in the streets.  And it shows flames coming up in the video screens, et cetera, et cetera.  So you have basically a call for revolution by this group.”

“Now, you have to remember these are Europeans and they have been degraded for a very long time.  Really since the beginning of time.  They have had very few glimpses of real freedom.  Even when England won the second world war, they didn't go into freedom.  That's where the Road to Serfdom came from because Winston Churchill and many others all said, wait, what are you doing?  We're going the wrong direction.  And it didn't go to freedom.  It went to the Road to Serfdom.”

“There are those that are calling for revolution and they are everywhere, and they are the Muslim extremists, they are the communist revolutionaries, they are the anarchists, and then you have the Tea Party movement.  The Tea Party movement is not calling for revolution.  The Tea Party movement is calling for a restoration.”

“If the Tea Party movement has anarchists or revolutionaries in it, it is trouble because revolution doesn't help anyone, as I believe we will see in Egypt in the end.  Everyone is celebrating this Egyptian revolution.  I don't think it ends well.”

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
