Maddow: "Don't tell me the reasons"

Rachel Maddow was on Meet The Press over the weekend claiming that Mitt Romney wants to talk about “women and the economy,” to which Glenn pointed out, no, Maddow wants to talk about women and Romney wants to talk about the economy.

Maddow made the claim on Meet The Press that women only make seventy-seven cents on the dollar compared to men. After making the claim another commentator pointed out that there are many reasons for that which actually make that claim untrue when you break down the numbers. Of course, Rachel didn’t want to have anything to do with the pesky facts of this matter.

“No, wait. Don’t tell me the reasons. Do women make less?” Rachel responded when confronted with the facts.

Stu pointed out how ridiculous it is for anyone whose job it is to analyze the news to say ‘don’t tell me the reasons.’ Why confuse her with the facts when that will ruin her talking points?

“See, that's the problem. If you don't want to get into the reasons for it, well, then you can make it unreasonable,” Glenn said when comparing Maddow’s comments on salaries to the prices of cars. “Yeah, those damn Rolls Royce people, they're gouging the Kia people. Wait a minute. There's a difference here. There's a reason. One's handmade.”

“The reasons are fascinating when you get into it, because this whole thing falls apart. This war on women and the unequal income, it all falls apart,” Glenn later added.

The other panelist on Meet The Press with Maddow pointed out that, on average, men work about forty-four hours per week – women about forty-one hours. He later added that professions men are drawn towards, like engineering, science and math, tend to earn more.

“Right off the bat you're talking about almost 10% more an hour, which would already immediately eliminate half the difference between men and women,” Stu said.

Maddow’s response – “This is not a math is hard conversation.”

Unfortunately for her, it is, and our resident statistics point man, Stu, has that math.

Here’s what Stu had to say:

In fact, there's a great book written called Why Men Earn More and it's written by a guy who started off as a women's rights activist who was all about this, all about this argument like, "Oh, you know, they're only getting paid," at that time it was like 69 or 59 cents on the dollar and this is an outrage, went through and really dived through the numbers and found out this is true. Men and I think this is a compliment to women, by the way. Men prioritize their careers a lot higher. Women, when they get jobs and they're in the working community, decide to prioritize stuff like family time more and they start to prioritize not staying for all the overtime and they prioritize keeping themselves safe and not going to, you know, on dangerous jobs for six months at a time. All those jobs go to men. And so those jobs that do get a premium because they're dangerous or they have ridiculous work hours go to men a lot more often because they're the ones requesting them. I mean, and you look through the numbers, there's a new study out that went over 2,000 communities and went through, analyzed all the numbers on women who had just come out of college, who hadn't you know, come out of college, have the same degrees as men, went through the same industries as men and found out that with the same age, everything controlled the same, women earn 8% more than men. Apples to apples.

This particular study was about women in their 20s right out of college. So I mean, I think it's the most pure example of whether there would be bias because there's no long work history, there's nothing you there's nothing that can screw up the data. These are people that are leaving college and going into the workforce.

Yeah, and like even hateful cities in the South like Atlanta and Memphis, they're paying women 20% more than men, 20% in Atlanta and Memphis for the same work with the same experience and everything else. Those hateful, evil Southern cities.”

Glenn’s take on the situation was a little less in depth, “She's so much smarter than almost everybody else on the planet, and she's, of course, the one who will kindly nudge you into that conclusion. I don't believe she actually this ignorant. I don't believe she's this stupid. I don't believe that she can't do the math herself, that she can't look at stats and figure them out. She's disingenuous at best, lying most likely.”

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety." Children have been brainwashed with racist critical race theory. And yet, Democrats want to use California as the test model for the entire country. Your state and your town are next. They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

Dave Rubin, host of BlazeTV's "The Rubin Report," moved to Los Angeles about a decade ago. In that time, he's watched it descend into absolute chaos. While most of his news and comedy friends have fled, Dave tells Glenn Beck why he's riding it out and how the rest of the country must save itself from progressive policies and "evil" governors like Gavin Newsom — or else the great American experiment will be over.
