Media Matters embarrasses themselves yet again

Not to long ago, Glenn talked about the emerging political pundit training camp that Media Matters has been running in order to train some empty-headed progressive puppets how to effectively communicate their message. You can find graduates of these programs all over MSNBC, and one or two even landed their own show (don’t worry, no one else has seen The Ed Show either). The head of this program has even gone on record recently discussing why such an astroturf movement is necessary. Glenn gave his reaction on radio this morning.

For the comments from Eric Burns, courtesy of The Blaze, watch below:

Burns said, “[The right] seems to have a very good star generating system. You know, they find their stars of the moment and they pump them up and so they become, you know -- Glenn Beck was working out of a little nickel and dime shop somewhere in the southwest and suddenly he's everywhere.”

Not quite.

“That's Ed Schultz,” Glenn said. “Ed Schultz was working literally in Fargo, North Dakota. Now all of the sudden he's on television and that's what they do.”

Glenn, on the other hand, was working out of a number one station when he was sixteen., so it wasn’t exactly a nickel and dime place.

“ Then all of the sudden, in 30 years, you're starting to see him places. Who does that, other than everyone who's ever been famous? That's so weird!” Pat joked.

“You went from a small radio station to a lot of radio stations in 30 years! What is the right doing?! How do they plan so well?” Stu added.

“Can I tell you something? We've been working on a new plan and in 40 years from now, they are toast!” Glenn said.

“The right, what, we all graduated from some right think tank? Who? Who went to any think tank that spawned all these talk show hosts? Anybody? Rush Limbaugh started in Kansas City with the Chiefs, went to Sacramento, did local radio, became successful there. They put him on nationally. I mean, that's how everyone of us has come up through the ranks.”

Both Glenn and Stu felt like the Media Matters strategy is indicative of the entire progressive mindset. It must be a huge conspiracy when someone achieves a level of success, so they must be backed by the evil Koch Brothers or some other shadowy organization, right? Not so much.

On the other hand, a George Soros funded organization has said – with no intention of hiding it – that they are manufacturing people to compete with successful broadcasters on the right.

Sadly, The Ed Show shows how much of an epic failure their program has been so far.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?
