Coulter responds to controversial tweet, debate performances on radio

Ann Coulter is getting a lot of attention for a controversial tweet she sent out after last night's debate.

Glenn joked with Ann, saying, "I don't know why you would call Bob Schieffer a retard."

"Well, I think a lot of people wanted the more 'Newt Gingrich, in your face' approach," Ann responded, adding, "I think a lot of us were surprised that Romney didn't go after Obama on Libya. That he said he approved of Mubarak being deposed. He did not coming back and really hit Obama hard with some of the completely insane things he said."

"I realized at the end of the debate only one man on that stage looked presidential," Ann added noting many of the tacky, snarky comments President Obama made were beneath the office of the President of the United States.

"I think if you were watching the two of them, and you had no idea, and you would say this one is President and this one is some street fighter," Glenn responded.

"Instead of rising up [to the office of the presidency], he lowered everything around him," Glenn added.

Ann found President Obama's performance to feel desperate and flailing. And surprisingly, found it smart of Romney not to hit hard on the cover up in Libya, because: 1. It's what Obama was expecting and 2. After last week's debate, the media had been covering the incident quite well.

She pointed out that whenever Obama was off the topic of Libya, he was discussing school teachers, killing Osama bin Laden, pandering to women, and Russia — who he has already made deals to work with after the election.

"There was a lot of embarrassing pander to women," Ann told Glenn.

"What is the approach here?" Stu asked. "Is there some sort of Obama internal research that shows that 93% of voters are teachers who want free contraception?" What's the approach here? They constantly bring it back to the same topics."

Ann believes they're trying to rally the base, which at this point in the game means his campaign is in trouble. At this point both candidates should be trying to win over the last few undecided voters who will ultimately determine the results of this election, which is exactly what Mitt Romney appeared to be trying to do last night.

"If you're in those swing states and you're just beginning to pay attention, and you're getting your facts about who Mitt Romney is from the President, he looked kind and gentle. He does not look like George W. Bush. He looked in control of himself. And he didn't look snarky," Glenn said. "I think if you're a woman in a swing state you don't want to go to war — nobody wants to go to war, especially women — you don't want to go to war. He now has people saying, 'I kind of like that guy. He was okay. He seemed to have the facts and he doesn't want to go to a war, and the President he'll never say this out loud.' Again, the President gave me the facts on Mitt Romney, and he was wrong there."

"That's right," Ann agreed. "Women, curiously since 9/11, foreign policy has been a much bigger issue for women than for men. It is an important issue. Women don't want to go to war, and Romney could not have been clearer."

"I definitely think that Romney is going to win. The only reason I shy away from a landslide is like Yogi Berra said it's hard predicting especially the future," she told Glenn.

"Apparently immediately after the debate Obama's chances in Ohio went down substantially on Intrade," she added.

Coulter also took issues with Obama's lie that Romney would have let G.M. collapse without government support.

"Of course Romney with his background, his father being the head of an auto company, did not say that the government should not provide support. It would have been a way to more honestly wind down a company, and eliminate some debts and honor other debts, and not just honoring the ones of your union buddies," she said.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
