Glenn: Chris Matthews is a religious bigot

Isn't it great when the leftist media decides to shed their image as "loving left" to show off their true colors? Chris Matthews decided to go on Ed Schultz's show (ratings power combo!!!!) and not only ridicule Mitt Romney, but he also disparaged his entire religion in the process and said the GOP was ready to "outsource" the presidency to a Mormon. He then called it a cult, and threw some other insults in there for good manner. How long until all those media watchdog groups come out and start demanding advertisers leave MSNBC? Come on, we're waiting...

The Blaze reports:

When asked by host Ed Schultz whether he thought the region was “going to be rough terrain” for Romney, Matthews argued that Americans are “willing to outsource it [the election] to a Mormon.”

He added:

It seems to me if they can win– it’s almost like calling up India or somewhere in the third world to get your computer fixed, you don’t care whose fixing it, just fix the damn computer. They want to get rid of Obama, so they’re willing to vote for a guy they don’t like and probably wouldn’t trust his religion.

He also made a reference to the “three cultists” — who, for Matthews, are those running — two Catholics and a Mormon.

"America, religious bigotry on display. This guy is a bigot. A total and complete bigot," Glenn said when he first heard the audio.

Editor's Tangent: Now, you might be wondering why this isn't a bigger story. After all, the left is still wrapped up in whatever Rush Limbaugh said over a week ago. Could it be because the MSNBC power line-up of Matthews, Schultz, and Sharpton who all appear in the MSNBC clip couldn't attract a single viewer? If Chris Matthews bashes an entire religion on MSNBC but no one is there to hear it, did he make a sound....

Despite Chris Matthews's total lack of cultural and political relevance, Glenn decided to take apart his argument as it isn't right for such hatred to just be left unchallenged, even if no one was watching MSNBC.

"Listen how he's taking content of character. 'I don't care. I don't care who's doing it just fix this. Isn't that a good thing in American politics.' Everything he's saying is wrong," Glenn said.

"We're saying we want somebody we believe in that stand by our values. He'll try to make this they went for Santorum so they didn't want to outsource. They went to the Catholic, and in the third place was the Catholic," Glenn said. "You have an amazing story in the south of people being decent, and looking for values, and if they find them in the Mormon. If they find them in the two Catholics. If they find them in the Methodist they'll vote for him. This is a remarkable story."

"It goes against everything that the left say we are. They say they're open‑minded. They say they're inclusive. Not at all. Not at all," Pat added.

"I don't give a flying crap if he was purple. I don't care. I care about his character, and I care about his policies. That's what the south just proved," Glenn added.

Glenn concluded the segment saying, "I have no problem defending my faith with reasonable people who aren't using lies and smears against me. I have no problem. I'm not trying to convert you. You want to do your church. You want to be atheist whatever I don't care. I don't care. This is America. We all stand together, and we defend each other's right to worship God the way you worship God unless you're blowing people up. We're all cool. Just be cool with each other. But the lies that are coming out are absolutely outrageous, and I say this with real indignation."

The initial reaction to the audio is below:

On "Glenn TV" this week, Megyn Kelly, host of the "Megyn Kelly Show," told Glenn Beck she believes the Democrats' talk of unity is "all nonsense" and forecasted the "death of journalism" under a Biden administration.

Megyn cited President Joe Biden's unwillingness to make concessions that would help unify Democrats and Republicans as an example of how much he actually cares about unity, and added that, while she's all for lowering the political temperature in America, she also believes there are some personal freedoms that are worth fighting for.

"What's happening substantively is worth fighting for and it's not going to go away just because [Biden] gave a nice speech," Megyn said.

"I will object. I will protect my family and what I think is right over Joe Biden's need for unity, which is false anyway. 'Unify behind my agenda' is not a real call for unity," she added.

Megyn said she believes the Left has reached too far and "awakened a sleeping giant" in reference to the silent majority who should speak up, speak out, and refuse to be silenced any longer.

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

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.
