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.”

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld joined Glenn on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to talk about his new book, "The Plus: Self-Help for People Who Hate Self-Help."

Greg admits he is probably the last person who should write a self-help book. Nevertheless, he offers his offbeat advice on how to save America during what has become one of the most tumultuous times in history, as well as drinking while tweeting (spoiler: don't do it).

He also shares his "evolution" on President Donald Trump, his prediction for the election, and what it means to be an agnostic-atheist.

In this clip, Greg shares what he calls his "first great epiphany" on how dangerous cancel culture has become.

"I believe that cancel culture is the first successful work-around of the First Amendment," he said. "Because freedom of speech doesn't protect me from my career being ruined, my livelihood being destroyed, or me getting so depressed I commit suicide. Cancel culture is the first successful work-around of freedom of speech. It can oppress your speech with the scepter of destruction. We don't have freedom of speech anymore."

Dr. Simone Gold joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to set the record straight about hydroxychloroquine -- what it is, how it works, and the real reason for all the current controversy surrounding a centuries-old medication.

Dr. Gold is a board certified emergency physician. She graduated from Chicago Medical School before attending Stanford University Law School. She completed her residency in emergency medicine at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York, and worked in Washington D.C. for the Surgeon General, as well for the chairman of the Committee on Labor and Human Resources. She works as an emergency physician on the front lines, whether or not there is a pandemic, and her clinical work serves all Americans from urban inner city to suburban and the Native American population. Her legal practice focuses on policy issues relating to law and medicine.

She is also the founder of America's frontline doctors, a group of doctors who have been under attack this week for speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during a news conference held outside the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

On the program, Dr. Gold emphasized that the controversy over hydroxychloroquine is a "complete myth."

"Hydroxychloroquine is an analogue or a derivative of quinine, which is found in tree bark. It's the most noncontroversial of medications that there is," she explained.

"It's been around for centuries and it's been FDA-approved in the modern version, called hydroxychloroquine, for 65 years. In all of that time, [doctors] used it for breast-feeding women, pregnant women, elderly, children, and immune compromised. The typical use is for years or even decades because we give it mostly to RA, rheumatoid arthritis patients and lupus patients who need to be on it, essentially, all of their life. So, we have extensive experience with it ... it's one of the most commonly used medications throughout the world."

Dr. Gold told Glenn she was surprised when the media suddenly "vomited all over hydroxychloroquine", but initially chalked it up to the left's predictable hatred for anything President Donald Trump endorses. However, when the media gave the drug Remdesivir glowing reviews, despite disappointing clinical trial results, she decided to do some research.

"[Remdesivir] certainly wasn't a fabulous drug, but the media coverage was all about how fabulous it was. At that moment, I thought that was really weird. Because it's one thing to hate hydroxychloroquine because the president [endorsed] it. But it's another thing to give a free pass to another medicine that doesn't seem that great. I thought that was really weird, so I started looking into it. And let me tell you, what I discovered was absolutely shocking," she said.

According to the mainstream media's COVID-19 narrative, the president is "ignoring" the crisis.

On tonight's "Glenn TV" special, Glenn Beck exposes the media's last four months of political theater that has helped shape America's confusion and fear over coronavirus. And now, with a new school year looming on the horizon, the ongoing hysteria has enormous ramifications for our children, but the media is working overtime to paint the Trump administration as anti-science Neanderthals who want to send children and teachers off to die by reopening schools.

Glenn fights back with the facts and interviews the medical doctor Big Tech fears the most. Dr. Simone Gold, founder of America's Frontline Doctors, stands up to the media's smear campaign and explains why she could no longer stay silent in her fight against coronavirus fear.

It's high time to leave the partisan politics behind and focus on the facts about face masks and whether or not they really work against COVID-19.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck spoke with Drs. Scott Jensen and George Rutherford about the scientific evidence that proves or disproves the effectiveness of mask wearing to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Then, Dr. Karyln Borysenko joined to break down where the massive political divide over masks came from in the first place.

"I think if we were to talk about this a couple months ago, I might have said, 'Well, there's the science of masks, and there's the emotions of masks.' But, unfortunately, there's something in between," Jensen said. "I would have thought that the science of masks would have to do with the physics of masks, so I did a video a couple months ago where I talked about the pore side of a cotton mask or a surgical mask."

He explained that properly worn masks can help reduce the spread of virus particles, but cautioned against a false-sense of security when wearing a mask because they are far from providing complete protection.

"If you have a triple-ply mask, the pore size will end up being effectively five microns. And five microns, to a COVID-19 virus particle, is 50 times larger. That's approximately the same differential between the two-inch separation between the wires of a chain-link fence, and a gnat," Jensen explained.

"But now what we're seeing is if we have some collision of COVID-19 viral particles with the latticework of any mask ... if you're breathing out or breathing in and the viral particles collide with the actual latticework of a mask, I think intuitively, yes, we can reduce the amount of virus particles that are going back and forth."

Dr. Rutherford said masks are essential tools for fighting COVID-19, as long as you wear them correctly. He laid out the three main reasons he believes we should all be wearing masks.

"So, we're trying to do three things," he said. "First of all, we're trying to protect the people around you, in case you are one of the 60% of people who have asymptomatic infection and don't know it. The second thing we're trying to do is to protect you. The third thing we're trying to do is, if you get infected, you'll get infected at a lower dose, and then you're less likely to develop symptoms. That's the threefer."
