Media sets their sights on Rick Perry

Is the media out to take down Rick Perry? Chris Matthews has devoted quite a bit of attention to the Texas Governor and claimed that the media needs to devote every nickel they have to an investigation. Even Robert Gibbs, ex-White House Press Secretary and all around buffoon, has attacked Perry in recent days. Is the left shaking in their boots at the possibility of a Perry Presidential run?

“Chris Matthews said the media needs to spend every nickel to investigate Perry. That's amazing. That's amazing. And believe me, they will. They will spend every nickel, they will turn everything upside down,” Glenn warned.

“If you want to be in the public eye and you want to have an opinion that is different than these thugs, well, you better be clean. You better be clean. And nobody's perfect. So admit your mistakes right off the bat. Don't be beholden to anybody. Do not cower in fear of your past. Everybody's past has a few things in it that suck. Move on,” Glenn said.

What is Matthews saying about Perry? “He dresses very fancy. There's something about the way he puts himself together that doesn't look authentic. He looks like, I don't know, a wax figure pretending to be a governor or something."

“Can you tell me how this is intellectually stimulating at all?” Glenn asked. “Have we really gotten down to this in American politics where Chris Matthews, who is supposedly a genius and a very respected, in some circles -- and that circle is getting smaller and smaller, respected pundit, he's down now to the way he dresses.”

“So he should conform and be like everybody else. He should just be a politician. There's something wrong with him. He's trying to be different. He wears clothing that people don't understand in other parts of the country,” Glenn said mocking the liberal media who subscribes to this kind of ridiculous and insular thinking.

And what about Robert Gibbs?

In a recent interview, Perry was asked if he thought Obama loved America. Perry simply said that they should be asking Obama.

“The substance and the appropriateness of what he said. One, when asked if the president loved America he refused to answer and said go ask the president,” Gibbs said.

“There is no correct answer to that question, there is none. How many times do people ask Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton if George W. Bush loved the country? How many times? Zero. Come on,” Pat said.

“I don't believe he hates America. I believe he sees America differently. He sees America's past -- I think he hates America's past. That's why he went on the apology tour. He hates America's past. He thinks that it is a past that was built on oppression. A lot of people believe that. Okay? But he believes in the American potential, just not the individual, but the potential of this group of people fundamentally transforming this nation into something that is about the collective,” Glenn suggested.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Left's latest move — canceling six Dr. Seuss books due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity. And now, school districts are jumping on board after President Joe Biden seems to have dropped Dr. Seuss from the White House's annual "Read Across America Day" proclamation.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn argued that deleting books is the perfect example of fascism, and asked when we as a country will finally realize it.

"They are banning Dr. Seuss books. How much more do you need to see before all of America wakes up? ... This is fascism!" Glenn said. "We don't destroy books. What is wrong with us, America?"
