Even Jon Stewart is shocked by the people at the DNC

The Democratic party truly is the big tent party! That is unless you are: white male, own a gun, religious, a Tea Party member, believe in small government, pro-choice, high school educated, believe in Creationism, anti-union, live outside of New York, live outside of California. You know, maybe they aren't really as big of a tent as they pretend to be. In fact, their hypocritical intolerance of anyone who disagrees with their beliefs was so bad that even Jon Stewart and the team at The Daily Show had to mock it!


Some highlights:

VOICE: Basically we're Latinos, Hispanics, we're blacks, we're the LGBT community, we're women, we're par.

JONES: Everyone's welcome.

VOICE: Everyone's welcome.

JONES: Except?

VOICE: Except unless you own a corporation or if you're a hunter, a gun owner, white males.

And then there was this one:

VOICE: They're a bunch of gun‑toting hillbilly Tea Partiers. That's all I have to say. Bang, bang, bang, bang, bang.

And this one:

VOICE: Pot‑bellied.

VOICE: Church‑going.

VOICE: Small‑minded.

VOICE: Anti‑science.

VOICE: A bunch of Yosemite Sam hillbillies.

VOICE: Whack job evangelicals, gun nuts.

VOICE: They don't want to hear a message of difference and of hope.

"What kills me is they don't see any of it.  They just don't see any of it.  They don't see how they're being wildly bigoted.  'We're inclusive, except for those people over there.'  Oh, my gosh.  We don't ‑‑ we certainly don't want any of those gun people," Glenn said.

"Here's how open‑minded I am.  I have friends who are atheists, I have friends who are Democrats, I have friends who are darn near communists, socialists, and I think they're good people.  I will tell them that I think they're wrong.  And we have an open and honest debate.  But what we have in common is more important.  They're decent people.  They don't hate freedom.  They don't hate America.  And they're also willing to have an honest conversation with me and if I make a good point, they'll say, "Wait a minute, wait a minute, holy crap, that makes sense."  And they'll come back to me two, three months later and say, "I've really been thinking about that."  And I've done the same with them.  My Communist friend George Lange who's not actually a Communist but I like to call him that because he's always like, 'I'm not a Communist.'  'Yeah, you are, George.'"

"He has changed my course. He really has. He's probably, next to God, next in line of being responsible for Restoring Love. Because he opened my mind on language. He said to me on the mall, he said, 'Glenn, I haven't heard you talk about love.' I said, 'George, you communists are all alike. This whole thing is about love.' And he said, 'Language matters, Glenn. Half of the country never heard you say the word love. And we've had a two‑year conversation about this.' And he taught me how his side sees things, and I've taught him how our side sees things and that really we're the ones that are seeing it the same way. And when he said to me at Restoring Love, "Glenn, my side talks about utopia, but your guy ‑‑ you guys are actually building it. You're doing it. This is it! This is what my side always says we should be like and you're doing it!" Victory. Victory. That's how ‑‑ that's where you are open‑minded. You say to your principles. But you're open‑minded enough to be able to bring other people in and have a real true exchange of ideas with respect. You win," he said.

Christians are conflicted when it comes to President Donald Trump. Some proudly support him and his policies, while others just can't accept the man behind the boorish language.

Ruth Graham, daughter of the late evangelist Billy Graham, joined Glenn Beck on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to make a case for the president from a Christian's point-of-view.

On Thursday's radio program ,Glenn interviewed Dr. Karlyn Borysenko, who described what it was like attending a President Trump rally as a Democrat. She told Glenn Beck that crossing party lines is nearly forbidden in liberal circles but she branched out anyway — and learned quite a bit about the other side.

Ryan: Bernie at the airport Holiday Inn

(Part One) . (Part Two). (Part Three).

Some poor guy booked a hotel at the Holiday Inn Airport Conference Center in Des Moines on February 3, 2020, assuming it would be a harmless Monday night. Only to find himself in the middle of an overflowing Bernie rally on the night of the caucuses.

For the record, the man was not a Bernie Sanders supporter. Far from it. He popped his head backward when I told him where I work, smiling. Well, grinning, to be precise.


After her speech, Klobuchar wandered into the crowd, immediately submerged. Selfies. Everybody wanted them. A minute later, the other candidates began to appear on screen, giving speeches.

"Bernie," asked Justin Robert Young, host of Politics Politics Politics.

"Bernie," I said, and we paced to the car and lurked out onto the depopulated streets and the trenchant cold. But we were both bright with excitement, a couple of detectives. The valet attendants in their satin outfits saw two oddities, and they were right.

Justin Young and I had just left the Des Moines Marriott Downtown for Amy Klobuchar's "Amy for America caucus night party." She gave her speech, in a brilliant maneuver. I skated the Nissan down empty streets, quietly listening to Bernie's speech on the Iowa Public Radio station.

"I love this, what we're about to do," I said, gripping the wheel, words hurried, leaning forward, tapping my left boot. "We're going to hear Bernie talking, then we'll park, then walk through some doors and we will stroll into that very room as Bernie is giving the speech that's being broadcast to millions of people."

It was like how in the game Mario Bros., Mario can jump into giant green storm drains, occasionally. Like leaping into the television and joining the cast.

"There's nobody out on the roads," one of us said. "Holiday Inn, right up there." As broad-winged commercial airplanes floated overhead. We scoured for a parking spot and each second felt wasted. Urgent. We needed to be inside that hotel. But there was nowhere to park. Even the illegal spots were taken. Cars had creviced every inch of parking lot and curb and all that, had even jammed into dark pyramids of sludge.


Rita Dove wrote, "I prefer to explore the most intimate moments, the smaller, crystallized details we all hinge our lives on."


There were so many more journalists press at Bernie's event that the only media spots left were in the overflow room, which itself seemed at capacity. Dank, too. With a heavy vibe, like a sinister library.

The entire hotel exuded gloom. A quietness you hear in locker rooms after a game that should have ended differently.

Bernie supporters, dazed, stomped out into the snow, or to the bathrooms, or just in need of a bit of stomping.


Back to Beechwood Lounge, where we watched the Super Bowl a day earlier. Although it felt like a week had passed since then.

Approaching midnight, by that point.

Because Justin consumes politics with an all-encompassing urgency. As if it's a duty. He's clearly studied history and politics for years. Part historian, part political scientist, but also part reporter and part comedian. On one hand, he's guided by the old school approach to journalism. Objectivity. Solemnity. Accuracy.

An American has the right to tell nobody who they voted for. Or maybe it's a cultural thing.

Snow everywhere you look, piles of it full of gas and oil, and rubbish as well. That day was unseasonably warm. The next would plummet us into literal freezing. The kind of day that slows everyone down. With all that ice, you have to be cautious about every step.

Shame is for the uninitiated.

In 1990 Michael Bloomberg's employees created a short book full of crude, sexist, and shocking quotes he allegedly said at work, including one story that has him telling a female employee to "kill it" after she announced she was pregnant. Sadly, that story has him fitting right in with the Democratic party in 2020.

The booklet, titled, 'Wit & Wisdom of Michael Bloomberg,' has resurfaced to haunt the Democratic presidential candidate after "The Washington Post" published the full text on Saturday.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Monday, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere (filling in for Glenn) shared some of the less colorful (many were too lewd to be repeated on radio,) but no less disgusting quotes.
