Losing: left reveals desperation

A surefire way to know when someone is badly losing a debate is when the rhetoric is reduced to cliched, tired, contradictory name calling. The latest protests against Glenn Beck are all of those things and more - even their chanted slogans are horrific. You'd think the artists on the left would be able to come up with a catchier protest slogan. Glenn had the audio of leftists grasping at straws, hoping against hope that one of these pathetic attacks will stick.

The latest protest? "1, 2, 3, 4, Glenn Beck no more. 5, 6, 7, 8, Israel doesn't need your hate. Glenn Beck go back. Glenn Beck go back."

Wow. Lame.

"Can I tell you something? These people have all of the talent. They have the poets, the songwriters, the movie stars. They got all of the talent, and this is what they come up with?"

The full transcript of the segment is below, including comments from David Barton

Now, want to play some ‑‑ David Barton is here with us, and David, you're speaking on Sunday with me, right?

BARTON: That's right.

GLENN: Okay. We're going to be at the High Point Church in Arlington, Texas. The first session is at 9:00. The second is at 11:00. It's 90 minutes and ‑‑

PAT: And you guys are going to be preaching hate on Sunday like you were in Israel every day?

GLENN: No, I don't think that's ‑‑

PAT: Oh, my gosh. People are onto you. There was a whole group of people from Peace Now who are ‑‑

GLENN: Peace Now?

PAT: ‑‑ on both you guys. Did you hear him? Listen.

VOICE: 1, 2, 3, 4, Glenn Beck no more. 5, 6, 7, 8, Israel doesn't need your hate.

PAT: Israel doesn't need your hate.

GLENN: It doesn't.

PAT: They don't. They don't need your hate.

GLENN: See, I didn't know that.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Because nobody said 5, 6, 7, 8.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: Israel doesn't need your hate.

PAT: Israel doesn't need your hate.

GLENN: Now that you've come up with something so very clever.

PAT: So catchy, now it's ‑‑ it's resonating.

GLENN: Yeah. Now it's penetrated.

PAT: We could have stayed home.

GLENN: I never even thought of it.

PAT: And just left the hate there. But no, now it's too late. We've already shared the hate with Israel.

GLENN: Oh, shoot.

PAT: That sucks. That's too bad.

VOICE: 3, 4, Glenn Beck no more. 5, 6, 7, 8, Israel doesn't need your hate. 1, 2, 3, 4, Glenn Beck no more. 5, 6, 7, 8, Israel doesn't need your hate. Glenn Beck go back. Glenn Beck go back.

GLENN: Wow.

PAT: They didn't think of anything that might wind with back.

GLENN: Can I tell you something? These people have all of the talent. They have the poets, the songwriters, the movie stars. They got all of the talent, and this is what they come up with?

PAT: Yes. This is brilliant. Although they couldn't think of, "I have a sack. Glenn Beck go back." They couldn't come up with that.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: They couldn't do.

VOICE: Glenn Beck go back.

GLENN: Hang on, hang on.

PAT: Now here comes a spokesman.

GLENN: Hang on, I got it: 1, 2, 3, 4, you guys really suck.

PAT: See, now, that doesn't ‑‑

GLENN: That's not it?

PAT: That doesn't ‑‑ no, that didn't work.

GLENN: I think it works better than that.

VOICE: Annoying, meddling, interferences by an extreme out‑of‑the‑stratosphere rightwing marginal evangelical fundamentalist Christian crazy people who even ‑‑

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Hold on, hold on. I think this is the guy I did the interview with today. That is almost ‑‑ David, that's almost exactly what he said to me today.

BARTON: They are reading off the same page, got the same press release.

GLENN: If that's Peace Now, I'll bet you he got half of his questions from those people.

PAT: That's possible.

GLENN: Seriously.

PAT: That's possible.

GLENN: Because that's almost what he said for me word for word.

VOICE: In America are considered to be far away from the political spectrum. These people come here and they take advantage of the political dispute here in a democracy and they utilize their narrow‑minded bigotry to cause trouble in this country. These people are rightwing, white supremacists, fascists, anti‑Semites. Behind the lot of Israel there is an anti‑Semitic message.

PAT: Anti‑Semite?

GLENN: Anti‑Semite. I am.

PAT: I don't like anti‑Semites.

GLENN: Have you ever had one with a Vegemite sandwich?

PAT: I haven't.

GLENN: Oh, have an anti‑Semite ‑‑

PAT: I've heard that Vegemite sandwiches aren't good.

GLENN: You've never had it with a little bit of anti‑Semite. You spread it on the side? But only on the right side of the sandwich.

PAT: Well, duh. Duh.

VOICE: Don't be deceived by this Glenn Beck. The person is an extremist. One of the most dangerous things about this person is his alliances with white supremacist movements, rightwing Nazi groups in America. This pseudohistorian David Barton is not a historian at all.

GLENN: David!

VOICE: And he's been associated with Nazi groups.

PAT: You've been associated with Nazi groups now?

GLENN: David, first of all, you're not a historian.

BARTON: I'll put that on every biography. I thought everybody knew that. I put that on every press release.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. So you have the largest collection of American documents outside of the Library of Congress prior to 1815, so you have the largest collection of their writings. I didn't know that you also were ‑‑

PAT: Associating with Nazis.

GLENN: Associated with Nazis. I didn't know that.

BARTON: I make up all my history. I've written all those documents by hand.

GLENN: Notice when he said ‑‑

BARTON: I copied everything George Washington said. It's a forgery. It's all a forgery.

GLENN: Notice when he said that, he was holding up his hand?

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: He was holding it ‑‑ he was like, hey, just like the Nazis did.

BARTON: Here's the one to hold up, yeah, exactly.

GLENN: Wow. What is ‑‑ where are they getting that?

BARTON: I don't think they have to get it anywhere. They just make it up as they go.

GLENN: They don't just say those things. Where are they getting that?

BARTON: That's right. I forgot. I forgot. I have a long record of this.

GLENN: Come on.

BARTON: And it finally came out.

GLENN: Seriously where are they getting it? Do you have a uniform? Do you have a membership card?

BARTON: You're revealing too much. Back off!

GLENN: All right.

PAT: You can't talk to him about it.

GLENN: Put the Nazi uniform back under the KKK sheet, okay?

PAT: Wow. I mean, that is ‑‑

GLENN: That's amazing.

PAT: Staggering.

GLENN: That's amazing.

PAT: Staggering.

GLENN: That's amazing. Have you noticed, I mean, that's the most, that's the guy ‑‑ is that not the interview?

BARTON: That's the guy you interviewed this morning.

GLENN: That's the guy that interviewed me.

BARTON: Same talking points right down it, yep.

GLENN: Same talking points. That's the way that interview went today.

BARTON: Yep.

GLENN: Same talking points. You'll notice when he said that, he listed everything.

PAT: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: The only thing he didn't say was, you know, and he kicks small puppy dogs, too. But you give that guy enough time ‑‑

PAT: He would.

GLENN: He will call me a child molester, an animal abuser. This is what they do. They use every single ‑‑ and what's amazing is they're using them all up. They are using them all up. They have to use absolutely everything. It's no longer a target. It's no longer a surgical strike. They are using every weapon in their arsenal. That's how afraid they are. That is amazing.

PAT: That's good news.

GLENN: It is good news.

PAT: That is a good sign.

GLENN: It is a great sign.

BARTON: That is desperation. That's great news.

GLENN: Hey, Hugo Chavez, Hugo Chavez, you and me, huh?

PAT: Do it in a way he can understand. 1, 2, 3, 4, you're gonna see Glenn Beck some more.

GLENN: (Laughing). That's way too good. Here, here: 1, 2, 3, 4, we're coming anyway. (Laughing).

Okay. Our sponsor this half hour ‑‑ David, seriously I didn't know about the Hitler stuff.

BARTON: Does that mean we can't be friends anymore?

GLENN: Oh, no, no. No, we're better friends.

BARTON: I forget we're both alike. That's right, that's right.

GLENN: You kept it a secret for so long! We have so much to talk about now!

BARTON: We've attended all those secret meetings together and now it's out.

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
