John Kerry wants media to ignore the Tea Party

Former presidential hopeful and Massachusetts Senator John Kerry has come out with some disturbing commentary, which Glenn played on radio this morning.

Speaking about the media and its coverage of the Tea Party, Kerry said the following:

“And I have to tell you, I say this to you politely. The media in America has a bigger responsibility than it's exercising today. The media's got to begin to not give equal time or equal balance to an absolutely absurd notion just because somebody asserts it or simply because somebody says something which everybody knows is not factual. It doesn't deserve the same credit as a legitimate idea about what you do. And the problem is everything's put into this tit for tat equal battle and America's losing any sense of what's real, of who's accountable, of who is not accountable, of who's real, who isn't.”

These bone-chilling statements that ultimately tell the media that it is their responsibility to ignore the Tea Party caused quite a stir among Glenn, Pat, and Stu.

PAT: And I'll tell you another thing. I, John Kerry, will be the arbiter of what's real and what isn't. I will tell you whose ideas are factual and whose are totally false. My ideas are factual, and John Boehner's are false. They're nonsense.

STU: It would be so much easier if we just had someone like John Kerry to just tell us.

PAT: Just tell us.

STU: When we should know what side of an argument to have. Why have, waste all the time with having both sides of an argument presented.

PAT: Right, right.

STU: It's just such, it's so arduous.

PAT: This president, this president still will just decide whose opinion you can put on your media shows.

Communist-like calls for censorship are nothing new. As Glenn recalled, the White House already overstepped its boundaries when it attempted to chase him off Fox News by calling for boycott of his program.

GLENN: When the White House went and tried to force Fox to fire me, they had a meeting and they did everything they could to get Fox to fire me. They stood fast. They then had five different presidential advisors intimidate all of my sponsors.

PAT: Boycotts.

GLENN: Boycotts. Never before in American history has that been done. No one in the media reported it. Now we have ‑‑ now we have ‑‑ he's saying this politely. He's saying this politely.

This is just another case of the liberal government exercising its control over the liberal media in attempts to feed the American people the information they want them to know and nothing else. But in America, isn't the media’s job to be a voice for the people, not a mouthpiece for the government?

As Glenn said, when times are tough and the liberal message is unfavorable it becomes easier to “take away a right” than reconsider its unfavorable policies. And that is exactly what John Kerry is seeking to do.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
