Romney unintimidated by boos during NAACP speech

Yesterday Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney went into the lion’s den yesterday and addressed the NAACP. While Romney wasn’t particularly popular among those at the NAACP, Glenn believed going there anyway and saying his piece works to his advantage.

“I think this was actually a brave thing to do – he didn’t flinch,” Glenn said.

The crowed turned on Romney when he addressed Obamacare – watch below:

“He stops and lets them boo, and then he just moves on,” Pat commented.

“And he doesn’t back off from it, he just moves on,” Glenn added. “Now, if I were president, here is what I would say: Oh, you don’t like that? You know what? I’m going to do a lot of different things. I’m going to be the president of all the people – not special interest groups. And, quite honestly, I’m going to do some things that you like. And I'm going to do some things that you hate. I'm going to do the things that the people are sending me there for. And 68% of Americans do not want Obamacare. You might want it, but the American people do not. That’s what I’m going to do. And I’m sorry if you don’t like it. It's going to suck to be you on that one, but we’ll find places where we can unite elsewhere.”

Pat pointed out that later in the speech Romney wasn’t afraid to point out that it’s never been worse for African Americans in this country. But the NAACP is a special interest group, so it doesn’t matter how many facts and stats Romney has to back his statements up – they’re going to vote for Barack Obama anyway.

“He went to a progressive leftist group that is not about principles, but about politics,” Glenn said. Adding, “I think this makes Mitt Romney stronger.”

He went on joking about Rush’s reaction to Romney’s speech, and how he didn’t change who he was or what he stands for in the speech. He didn’t start using a southern twang like Barack Obama, and he definitely didn’t go the route of Hillary Clinton, who, if you don’t remember, stood in front of the NAACP, started speaking with a southern draw, and started quoting the words of James Cleveland.

Here’s that hilarious clip:

“That is the worst stuff I ever heard,” Glenn said mockingly.

Glenn went on to say that, just like the National Organization of Women, the NAACP, is a joke. They lost any credibility they might have had because of special interests – much like the mainstream media news organizations.

“You guys are making such a huge hole in the market that GBTV and TheBlaze, we’re going to come in with semi-trucks, one after another, driving through that hole,” he said.

“You're making yourself a joke,” Glenn added, addressing the media and other partisan organizations. “The National Organization of Women, you have no credibility; Democrats, no credibility; Republicans, no credibility; politicians, no credibility.”

Glenn told his audience that credibility is going to become on of the hottest commodities there is.

“You cannot put a price on credibility,” he told listeners.

“The American people will own that rare mineral of credibility. You just stay credible yourself and you win. This game is over. I'm telling you this game is over. You just have to go out now and finish the game. And we may be down at halftime, but I'm telling you, the game is over. Just get back on the field, and finish it.”

Glenn went on to congratulate Mitt Romney for actually having a spine, going into enemy territory, and just saying what he believed.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
