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.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.
