"Linsanity" exposes silly liberal PC standards

While Glenn was out of the country last week and through the weekend, America was wrapped up in “Linsanity”. It was pretty “Lincredible” how much people were focused on New York Knicks player Jeremy Lin. But fascination turned to outrage when ESPN printed an overnight headline of “A Chink In the Armor”. Was it racist or an honest mistake? And were the drastic steps that ESPN took appropriate? Glenn weighs in, but warning – he doesn’t know a lot about sports (but he does get the Constitution).

A Stu explained, Knicks superstar Jeremy Lin had a bad game, and someone in their headline department wrote “A Chink in the Armor” as a headline.

“So, they're saying that they believe this headline writer wrote it because he's racist and was saying "chink" in the derogatory Chinese way rather than just the phrase that everyone uses all the time,” Stu said.

Stu explained that the guy who wrote the headline had been fired, and someone who said it on air was suspended for 30 days.

Oddly enough, the sportscaster has revealed in a tweet: ““Wanted 2 apologize 2 all those I have upset. Not done with any racial reference. Despite intention, phrase was inappropriate in this context.”

“My wife is Asian, would never intentionally say anything to disrespect her and that community,” he added.

On radio, Glenn played the audio of the sportscaster saying the offensive phrase, but noted he did not sound like he meant it ina derogatory fashion.

“Absolutely no sense of irony there. He wasn't saying it like that,” Pat said.

“This guy who wrote the headline, you know, an unknown guy who was he's a young man who was building his career and now has lost his job over this says he's written chink in the armor in headlines and stories a hundred times and he had no he was not at all talking about trying to make a pun or anything about this,” Stu explained.

“This is what the left's standards have created this, situation where guys who are married to Asians talking about chink in the armor, a phrase that people use all the time, get applied to them this racism that's not there, lose their job, get suspensions for no reason.

“ESPN and ABC should be ashamed of themselves for firing this guy. He’s 28 years old. He said he's used the phrase at least 100 times in headlines and thought nothing about when he used it on the Lin story. Frederico, his last name is Frederico, called Lin one of his heroes, not just because he's a big Knicks fan but because he feels a kinship with fellow outspoken Christian. My faith is my life. I love to tell Jeremy what happened and explain that this was an honest mistake. It was Frederico's last headline of the night before heading home at 2:30 a.m. It might be the last he ever writes. ‘I had a career I was proud of. I'm devastated I caused a fire storm.’ And they fired this guy,” Stu said.

“What a bunch of spineless worms,” Stu added.

“He is not making a racist comment,” Glenn added.

“And ABC, you think you're going to get the news straight? Do you really think you're going to get the truth from an organization that on the sports side will fire somebody for that? Do you think any, any news person worth their salt is going to step out of line and give any other view than the accepted view? Anybody going to take a chance? No way. No way,” Glenn said.

“Try to get them to say something actually important. Try to get them to say something actually risky. You think they're going to do it?! Look at how they have corrupted this system,” he said.

With cops under fire, businesses destroyed, and innocent civilians beaten and killed, where is the justice that well-meaning protesters were seeking for George Floyd?

On Wednesday night's special, Glenn Beck goes one on one with Blexit founder and "Blackout" author Candace Owens about what's really driving the riots, white privilege in America, and why it sickens her that Floyd has become a martyr for Black America.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan told Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday that a network of radical extremist terrorist organizations, which includes Antifa, are coordinating and escalating many of the violent riots in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Lara, who has done extensive reporting on Antifa, said it's "extraordinary" that so many Americans in the media and politics are defending the "very violent terrorist organization."

"[The media is] pretending that they care about journalism. They don't. They care about silencing, intimidating, destroying, annihilating, and getting us all to self-sensor so we don't cover any of the subjects they don't want us talking about," she said.

"For those of us who've followed [Antifa] for a while, and know what they're doing and what their agenda is, what has always been troubling is the way so many people in the media and in the political establishment have given them cover to operate," Laura added. "These are extremists. And you see a lot of parallels between extremists on the left and the right ... they pretty much operate the same way, exactly. And there's no difference between what Antifa is doing and the 'Brown Shirts' of Nazi Germany. Or the 'Black Shirts' of Mussolini."

She read the 10 points of action listed by an extremist group called the "Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement", which culminates with "Liberation begins where America dies."

Glenn recalled a prediction he made approximately 15 years ago, that "socialist, communists, radicals, anarchists, [and] Islamists would all work together ... they would all see the opportunity and work toward the same goal. And that's destruction of capitalism, and destruction of the Western world."

"A few years ago, I probably would not have agreed with you on that," Laura responded. "But I now see that you're absolutely correct."

The Trump-deranged media is calling the president a "coward" because he was moved to an underground bunker as riots erupted outside the White House over the weekend.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to set the record straight. He told Glenn that under Title 18, US Code 3056, the Secret Service has the authority to protect the president however they deem necessary, with or without his consent.

Dan explained that the severity of the White House riots, which resulted in at least 50 Secret Service agents being injured, would very likely have warranted overriding the president's preference on whether or not to take shelter.

"Shame on the media ... for painting this as some kind of situation where Trump ran like a coward," Dan said. "Which is totally false and made-up. [...] They're morons. These are imbeciles with double digit IQs who are only in this to aggravate an already-bad situation. And it's a shame, because they're really incentivizing this kind of stuff to happen."

He also made it clear that the so-called protests over the death of George Floyd were actually "very strategic" riots organized by "Antifa terrorists."

"It was not even a protest. It should have been, and could have been ... but that's not what it was. It was an insurrection. It was a riot," Dan stated.

"I can tell you, from sources of mine that were there, [who are] more than credible and unimpeachable, that the attack at the White House -- and that's what it was over a period of days -- was very organized. It was done using very strategic tactics," he added. "I want to be crystal clear, this was organized by Antifa terrorists. It's not a joke. It's not hyperbole. These were people that were committed to an insurrection that was thankfully put down."

The media has been trying to discredit BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer after he recorded a disturbing video of a man being brutally beaten and stoned almost to death by rioters Saturday evening in Dallas.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to set the record straight.

"The very dishonest far-left media is working tirelessly at the moment to completely, not only discredit myself, but they always say, 'Elijah Schaffer who works for Glenn Beck's BlazeTV.' As if that's an insult. So I'm going to clear the air right now," he told Glenn.

"There was a group of about, I would say 150 rioters. They were not protesters. They were breaking windows. They broke into a bank. They broke into a bar. They were looting alcohol and partying on the streets while breaking glass. These were not people who were grieving over black lives," he added. "The police had lost control of the city."

Elijah went on to describe the violent scene, detailing the events leading up to the brutal beating of a man who was apparently trying to defend a local bar. Elijah posted a video of the incident on Twitter Saturday night.

*Warning: graphic content*

"Rioters with rocks and bricks and bats and weapons, 150 or more, were accosting him as he stood in front of the bar," Elijah said. "Then they started stoning him, Glenn! Medieval! Throwing rocks and bricks.... We're in America. This is 2020. We do not stone people in the United States of America!"
