Freak Jury: Should Stu & Pat read the book that made Glenn cry for months?

This morning on radio Glenn updated listeners to some disturbing news from the elections in Greece, which showed a rising vote in the Nazi and Communist parties. This ultimately led to Glenn urging listeners to read In The Garden of Beasts, a book that explains the role the media played in the Holocaust.

It’s also the book that had him crying through most of last summer …not to mention the author of the book became suicidal while writing it.

Given that reputation, who can blame Stu or Pat for not wanting to read this book? Glenn has told them all about the book, so why should they have to read it? Glenn says he needs a “different perspective” on the book.

So, should Stu and Pat have to read In The Garden of Beasts? Glenn called a ‘Freak Jury’ to let 12 random callers from the audience decide.

Pat warned the audience as they began to call in that voting ‘yes’ ran the risk of squeezing all entertainment value right out of the program.

First Glenn polled the Feed (the real time chat room on GBTV for listeners/watchers of the radio show). Votes on the Feed didn’t go well for Stu and Pat. “It was 92 to 8 according to the feed,” Pat reported.

Stu again tried to remind listeners, “Don’t think about what it does to us, because I know you want to torture us with awful reading.”

“Think about what it does to you,” Pat added.

Calls quickly started pouring in. First from Scott in Florida who said, “yeah, I definitely think they should have to read it.”

One down, plus the feed – things were not looking good for Stu and Pat, Dwayne in Arizona provided some hope with his vote. He said they should absolutely not be forced to read the book.

Here is how the votes came in:

Scott – Yes

Dwayne – No

Keith – Yes

Ian – Yes

Jeff – No

Carla – Yes

Debbie – Yes

Ron – Yes

James – No

Jim (FL) – Yes

Jim (MA) – No

Randy – Yes

Things didn’t go well for Pat and Stu, 8 said yes, they should read the book, and only 4 said no, they should not have to read it.

“It’s over,” Stu said. “The winner here of the poll is yes, I support genocide of entertainment value. They want us to kill the show. Maybe we need to put it out of its misery. It’s been around for a long time – let’s just kill it off.”

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
