Media ignores new threats of violence from NBPs & shooting at FRC

Wednesday morning, TheBlaze reported that a a security guard was shot and wounded at the conservative Family Research Council headquarters in downtown Washington, D.C.

It was reported that the gunman walked into the building’s lobby around 10:45AM and was confronted by the security guard asking him where he was going. D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier told the Washington Post that the gunman then pulled out a firearm and opened fire on the guard before being wrestled to the ground, disarmed, and later taken into FBI custody.

The man was later identified as Floyd Corkins, a 28-year-old from Virginia. The shooter reported posed as an intern and was carrying a Chick-fil-A bag during the attack, and, after being disarmed, told the guard, “Don’t shoot me, it was not about you, it was what this place stands for.” Corkins had been volunteering at a LGBT community center.

This morning on radio, Glenn reacted to the shooting and the media coverage (or lack thereof) that it has been given.

Glenn pointed out that this was a “terrorist shooting," making sure to differentiating it from a workplace shooting.

“Let’s be very clear, an LGBT supporter and volunteer goes in and shoots someone because of their viewpoint,” Glenn said.

Glenn explained that, of course, the responsibility of an act like this falls on the shooter, but those that are excusing it also hold a responsibility to tell the truth and expose these acts of violence and why they occur.

“The media, our government, no one is paying attention to these things and it will only compound,” he said transitioning to how the Justice Department is dropping the case against the New Black Panthers despite the increasing number of threats they’re making.

It’s not simply that the media ignores things like this shooting or the racist, violent threats that come from the New Black Panthers, while magnifying groups like the KKK, trying to pin violent acts on the Tea Party that they are completely unassociated with, and their continued attempts to paint the right in a violent, racist light. It’s that they’re ignoring these threats, or worse, mocking those who expose them – it’s dangerous.

“We told you for the last few months about the Black Panthers, you can dismiss the Black Panthers all you want. I hope we can all laugh at them, but I don't hear the same attitude on the KKK. I don't think the KKK is funny. I don't think they're just a silly group of people. I think the KKK is a dangerous group of haters. I think the KKK should be watched. I want to know who the members of the KKK are, if they live around me, and I don't want them hiding in the darkness. I want to know who they are because I think they're dangerous,” Glenn said.

Glenn shared an article from the Business Insider, written by Jeffrey Ingersoll. The article basically mocked, Glenn, Breitbart.com, and other conservative organizations for reporting the threats from the New Black Panthers.

“The Black Panthers, a militant black power group from the 1960's, are regrouping and they claim they want to murder as many Caucasian Americans as possible, according to a video on Breitbart.”

“Yeah, a video on Breitbart with their voices on it and them saying it,” Stu sniped backed. “It’s not someone accusing them.”

Here is the latest audio from the NBPs that the BI article is referring to:

 

Glenn went on to read more of what Ingersoll wrote about their coverage of the NBPs and this viscous audio:

“A handful of popular political pundits, like Michelle Malkin, the Breitbart.com gang, and Glenn Beck's crew at The Blaze, are attempting to stoke the flames of fear over the enthusiastic YouTube musings of a few individuals who've forgotten it's no longer the '60s. The pundits also took a turn toward race as they quickly, and predictably, accused Obama of 'looking the other way.'

These are the same people who fiercely advocate for bombing Muslim countries willy nilly and say "10 percent of Muslims are terrorists," but then get mad when a guy with a few screws loose is a bit more hawkish than them”."

Stu quickly pointed out that, “They say 10% of Muslims are terrorists. No. Actually polling shows that. We actually have all the backup documented on the website. Polling from actually left leaning organizations and opinion makers show that between – I think it's 4 and 57% of Muslim countries, depending on which one you're talking about, is – supports the actions of Osama Bin Laden.”

Glenn continued reading the piece:

“The host of Right-Wing blogs exploded recently following the epic rants by New Black Party elements calling for a militarization of their little club. Granted, his language was colorful”.”

Now, after reading that piece poking at prominent conservative figures for their coverage of the New Black Panthers, it would be hard to believe that the Southern Poverty Law Center designated them a ‘right wing hate group.’

Keeping in mind that the mainstream media will spend weeks obsessing over motives of terrorists and criminals, Glenn points out that it’s the job of the media to pay attention to these things, not mock them. Glenn shed light on the words and warnings of Osama bin Laden in 1999. He explained that, “You do that so you warn people, so they pay attention, but nobody paid attention then. Nobody's paying attention now and the press is doing worse than not paying attention.”

The same people that mock conservatives for trying to expose threats against Americans are accusing conservatives and the Tea Party of being terrorists, claiming their anti-big government rants will lead to terrorism.

“Here you have a group of people saying, “Let's go kill babies”. Here you have a group of people that say “let's go drag people out in the streets and beat them to death,” and we have no problem with that?” Glenn questioned.

What makes the words of the New Black Panther’s laughable and those of someone else more dangerous? Especially after such a violent past couple of weeks where there has been a shooting in a movie theater and another in a Temple. It only takes one crazy person, and here we have a group of people discussing brutal violence out in the open.

“We live in a crazy world and the people who are currently in their ivory towers will be out in the parking lot one day kicking rocks, asking themselves what the hell happened. They're putting themselves out of business,” Glenn said. “They're putting themselves into disrepute. They're destroying themselves.”

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
