Norway tragedy: media blames U.S. conservatives

Glenn responded to the tragic events from Friday’s bombing and shooting in Norway on Monday’s radio show, and reflected on an old TV monologue that warns of what could happen in the wake of the weekends tragedy.

“I want to make this very, very clear. This is the act of a madman. This is the act of somebody who needs to be in prison for the rest of their life. This is not anything that anyone should ever engage in. There is no difference between him and the 9/11 bombers. Nothing. No difference. He is just as bad as Osama Bin Laden, period,” Glenn said.

While some in the media are rushing to place the blame on U.S. conservatives, Glenn  referred to a monologue he did on his old FOX News show that explained the difference between the European left/right wings and the American left/right wings. Glenn recalled the monologue, explaining, “The left and right in Europe - because once they got rid of the kings, they didn't replace it with "we the people.” They had to replace it with another strong government. And that's where fascism and communism came from. That's your left and right. Fascism on the right –Nazis - and communists on the left. And there are variations of both of those theories but it's fascism and communism,” Glenn explained.

“This guy who's the shooter is from the rightwing –different than our rightwing. It is still big government. He is coming out and he is doing the work of a madman. He is doing the work of what all people that want big government always do and that commit terrorist acts. They want to destroy a government so they can put another one in that they like,” Glenn said. The terrorist who committed these horrible actions has extensively written fringe and extremist government ideas.

After the break, Glenn returned to the topic and focused on how monstrous the shooter was. “This guy walked onto this island with a firearm. No one else had one. No one could stop him,” Glenn said.

“These kids were swimming across the lake trying to get help. Neighbors were coming and getting in their boats and going and rowing across the water to be able to grab these kids out. This guy was an absolute and total monster. A monster.”

Stu warned that people in America would use this tragedy to paint the right in America as terrorists and extremists, and indeed that has already started to happen. But Stu countered, “I don't remember the last time I was at a Tea Party and I heard them talking about free masonry. That's not the typical focus. Or you know how much the tea parties just absolutely love isolationism and, you know, this guy was arguing very much for isolationism against free trade.”

“It was his marketing plan for this manifesto. As we know unfortunately this works. When you go out and do this, people do look at your crazy rantings and, you know, berate them and use them for their own political points, unfortunately,” Stu added.

Stu also pointed out that in the past when left-wing extremists have committed violent acts that they have been quick to point those madmen out as monsters who in no way reflect the people who make up the left, the liberals, or the Democrats.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
