HuffPo stoops to new lows in Beck attack

The Huffington Post has stooped to an new low in their latest attack on Glenn Beck. An article they posted today that has started to make the rounds in the media declares Glenn Beck: Term 'Colored' Is 'Not A Bad Thing,' 'African American' Is 'Ridiculously Stupid'. They might as well have said “Listen to that racist Glenn Beck wonder why it's bad to call African Americans 'colored' people.” What’s the truth? What’s the Huffington Post’s agenda? Glenn discussed on radio today.

Glenn took the article by Katherine Fung apart during the second hour today. It should be noted that the only sources used were –Shocker! – from those sad, sad, sad people at Media Matters!

Fung wrote, “Glenn Beck blasted the use of the term "African American" in favor of "black" and "colored" on his radio show on Tuesday.”

“Never did I say that. Never,” Glenn responded.

“I don't remember that segment. That's interesting. I don't remember you advocating that at all,” Stu added.

One trick that Stu and Glenn went after was the way Fung wrote ' 'African American' Is 'Ridiculously Stupid' in the headline, with the implication being that Glenn thinks the term is stupid in general. But is that what he really said?

Yesterday, Glenn actually said: “Pat, correct me if I'm wrong. Didn't you feel ridiculously stupid everywhere in Africa, in Europe, in South America, in Jerusalem, when you would say the term African-American?”

“Your point was that someone who lives in Jerusalem who happens to be black should not be referred to as an African-American,” Stu explained.

Stu and Glenn also discussed the fact that when Glenn was discussing the terms “black” and “colored”, he was only talking about the cultural distinctions and customs of South Africa as explained by a studio technician.

Listen to the technician below:

“You're expressing their cultural distinctions, not advocating them,” Stu said.

“I'm not standing up for South Africa and Apartheid by any stretch of the imagination, which I know they're going to try to do. I'm not standing up for it. I stand against it. It was evil,” Glenn explained.

And, of course, Huffington Post completely ignored comments made by Glenn and Stu which made it clear that they felt that the only thing they found insulting about the term “African American” was that it acts as a qualifier that signals out black people as “other”.

Stu said that the term creates a “distinction that they're different from us.”

“They are Americans. They are 100% American. They deserve every right. They have every responsibility that everyone else has,” Stu argued.

Clearly, the only thing Glenn did was 1) point out the cultural habits of people in South Africa and 2) discuss the PC problem that exists in our own country and how terms like “African American” don’t make any sense when travelling abroad. As someone beginning a global movement, as Glenn has stated he wants to do, these issues are on his mind.

Of course, Huffington Post decided to take this discussion out of context to drive traffic to their site and make Glenn look like a racist. Good job! You can see the actual clip below:

But why would HuffPo allow such a blatantly twisted and factually challenged article to run? Again, its only source was Media Matters!

“Why did Katherine Fung and the Huffington Post write this and allow to run? Why? The only reason is to smear and discredit,” Glenn said.

“I have to tell you I was in South Africa and I was surprised anybody even knew my name. You would not believe the amount of hate that people had towards me. Why? They couldn't even tell you,” Glenn said. “It's almost like somebody who has billions of dollars is running a smear campaign and everybody on the left who wants their little socialist utopia is running a smear campaign.”

“I don't care. Put me out of business. I don't care. I'll stand on the street corner. I'll wear a sandwich sign. If you throw me in jail, I'll continue to speak there over and over and over again. Let me tell you, I will not sit down. I won't be intimidated. I won't be bullied and neither will the American people,” Glenn said.

Glenn then attacked the media, and HuffPo in particular, for not reporting stories that don’t fit their lens. “Why are you not running the story of the people who are now plotting to stand in the streets and shut our country down?”

“Why are you not telling that story now? Which one has an agenda, because I've got news for you - I see somebody who's a racist, I see somebody who's trying to take our country apart from the inside and destroy it, destroy our Constitution, I don't care if they're members of the Tea Party, I don't care if they're communists. It doesn't matter. I'll expose them. Why won't you?”

“You're so arrogant and so lost, you don't even know your time is coming to an end and there's not going to need to be a revolution. People will just tune you out. I may not be around to see it, but it's coming.”

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.

Modern eugenics: Will Christians fight this deadly movement?

Last month, without much fanfare, a new research paper disclosed that 94 percent of Belgian physicians support the killing of new-born babies after birth if they are diagnosed with a disability.

A shocking revelation indeed that did not receive the attention it demanded. Consider this along with parents who believe that if their unborn babies are pre-diagnosed with a disability, they would choose to abort their child. Upwards of 70 percent of mothers whose children are given a prenatal disability diagnosis, such as Down Syndrome, abort to avoid the possibility of being burdened with caring for a disabled child.

This disdain for the disabled hits close to home for me. In 1997, my family received a letter from Michael Schiavo, the husband of my sister, Terri Schiavo, informing us that he intended to petition a court to withdraw Terri's feeding tube.

For those who do not remember, in 1990, at the age of 26, Terri experienced a still-unexplained collapse while at home with Michael, who subsequently became her legal guardian. Terri required only love and care, food and water via feeding tube since she had difficulty swallowing as a result of her brain injury. Nonetheless, Michael's petition was successful, and Terri's life was intentionally ended in 2005 by depriving her of food and water, causing her to die from dehydration and starvation. It took almost two excruciating weeks.

Prior to my sister's predicament, the biases that existed towards persons with disabilities had been invisible to me. Since then, I have come to learn the dark history of deadly discrimination towards persons with disabilities.

Indeed, some 20 years prior to Germany's T4 eugenics movement, where upwards of 200,000 German citizens were targeted and killed because of their physical or mental disability, the United States was experiencing its own eugenics movement.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas documented some of this history in his concurring opinion in Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, Inc., Justice Thomas describes how eugenics became part of the academic curriculum being taught in upwards of 400 American universities and colleges.

It was not solely race that was the target of the U.S. eugenics movement. Eugenicists also targeted the institutionalized due to incurable illness, the physically and cognitively disabled, the elderly, and those with medical dependency.

In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down Roe v. Wade, which wiped out pro-life laws in nearly every state and opened the floodgates to abortion throughout the entirety of pregnancy. Since then, 60 million children have been killed. Abortion as we know it today has become a vehicle for a modern-day eugenics program.

Since the Catholic Church was established, the Truth of Christ was the greatest shield against these types of attacks on the human person and the best weapon in the fight for equality and justice. Tragically, however, for several decades, the Church has been infiltrated by modernist clergy, creating disorder and confusion among the laity, perverting the teachings of the Church and pushing a reckless supposed “social justice" agenda.

My family witnessed this firsthand during Terri's case. Church teaching is clear: it is our moral obligation to provide care for the cognitively disabled like Terri. However, Bishop Robert Lynch, who was the bishop of the Diocese of St. Petersburg, Florida, during Terri's case, offered no support and was derelict in his duties during the fight for Terri's life.

Bishop Lynch had an obligation to use his position to protect Terri from the people trying to kill her and to uphold Church teaching. Indeed, it was not only the silence of Bishop Lynch but that of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), which also remained silent despite my family's pleas for help, that contributed to Terri being needlessly starved and dehydrated to death.

My family's experience, sadly, has turned out to be more of the rule than the exception. Consider what happened to Michael Hickson. Hickson was a 36-year-old, brain-injured person admitted to a Texas hospital after contracting COVID-19. Incredibly—and against the wishes of Michael's wife—the hospital decided not to treat Michael because they arbitrarily decided that his “quality of life" was “unacceptably low" due to his pre-existing disability. Michael died within a week once the decision not to treat him was imposed upon him despite the efforts of his wife to obtain basic care for her husband.

During my sister's case and our advocacy work with patients and their families, it would have been helpful to have a unified voice coming from our clergy consistently supporting the lives of our medically vulnerable. We desperately need to see faithful Catholic pastoral witness that confounds the expectations of the elite by pointing to Jesus Christ and the moral law.

A Church that appears more concerned with baptizing the latest social and political movements is a Church that may appear to be “relevant," but one that may also find itself swallowed up by the preoccupations of our time.

As Catholics, we know all too well the reluctance of priests to preach on issues of abortion, euthanasia, assisted suicide, and other pro-life issues. We have heard that the Church cannot risk becoming too political.

At the same time, some within the Church are now openly supporting Black Lives Matter, an organization that openly declares itself hostile to the family, to moral norms as taught by the Church, and whose founders embrace the deadly ideology of Marxism.

For example, Bishop Mark J. Seitz of El Paso, Texas, knelt in prayer with a cardboard sign asserting his support for this ideology.

Recently, during an online liturgy of the mass, Fr. Kenneth Boller at The Church of St. Francis Xavier in New York, led the congregation with what appears to sound like questions affirming the BLM agenda. Moreover, while reading these questions, pictures of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, assumed victims of racial injustice, were placed on the altar of St. Francis Xavier Church, a place typically reserved for Saints of the Catholic Church.

Contrast these two stories with what happened in the Diocese of Lafayette, Indiana, where Rev. Theodore Rothrock of St. Elizabeth Seton Church fell victim to the ire of Bishop Timothy Doherty. Fr. Rothrock used strong language in his weekly church bulletin criticizing the Black Lives Matter movement and its organizers. Consequently, Bishop Doherty suspended Fr. Rothrock from public ministry.

In 1972, Pope Pius VI said, “The smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God." It seems that too many of our clergy today are enjoying the smell.

I encourage all who are concerned about the human right to life and about Christ-centered reforms in our culture and our Church to raise your voices for pastoral leadership in every area of our shared lives as Christian people.
