Shameless: NBC smears … George Washington?

It’s no secret that progressives hate the founding fathers. They view the constitution created by them as a ‘charter of negative liberties’ that we need to progress from. So it should come as no surprise that they’ll stop at nothing to do any damage they can to the once stellar reputation of the founders. What did NBC Universal do?

Glenn read from the Deadline report:

With United States’ 16th President Abraham Lincoln back in the cultural zeitgeist with Steven Spielberg’s feature biopic, NBC hopes to do the same on the TV side with the nation’s first president. The network has put in development George Washington (working title), a drama series from Oscar-winning writer David Seidler (The King’s Speech), Barry Levinson, Tom Fontana and NBCU International Prods’ Carnival Films & Television, the company behind phenom Downton Abbey.

After taking on Britain’s King George VI in King’s Speech, U.K. writer Seidler will now tackle the American commander who led the country’s war for independence from the British Kingdom. He will write the script based on the best-selling and Pulitzer Prize-winning biography by Ron Chernow, Washington: A Life. Levinson intends to direct the pilot.

George Washington is described as an intimate look at the enigmatic leader who became the father of a nation on one side of the Atlantic and a terrorist on the other, a man to be eliminated at all costs by the British Crown. As episodes move back and forth through the war hero and President’s life and tell the little-known and unlikely story of his survival and triumph, his true character is revealed for the first time. And he is not the man who chopped down the cherry tree.

“There’s George Washington the national icon, gazing out from the dollar bill with his  mouthful of supposedly wooden teeth, and then there’s the George Washington who had an adulterous affair with his best friend’s wife,” Seidler said. “The George Washington obsessed with social status, finely-tailored clothes, his image. Not an icon, a very human human-being, who learned how to lead. That’s the man I want to understand.”

"There is no enigma to George Washington.  He is very simple to understand.  Where is the enigma?" Glenn said. "Thomas Jefferson is an enigma.  He's a code that you have to break.  George Washington is very simple. "

"And isn't that interesting how they also mix in some truth there, not the tale of the man who chopped down the cherry tree, which was not true.  But his true character has already been revealed, but they mix in that little truth that, okay, he didn't chop down the cherry tree.  Now you're supposed to buy into all the rest of this garbage that's about to come," Pat said.

"You know what this is?  This is the relationship of a friend, his best friend was Fairfax, and Fairfax was Sally fax, wasn't it? Sally Fairfax he was in love with.  From a kid he was in love with her.  He went to work for his father, Fairfax, Virginia.  Ever heard of it?  The father.  The father said, "Will you survey my land?"  He's 16 years old and he's a surveyor.  And he goes out and he surveys Virginia for Fairfax.  He loves her.  If I'm not mistaken, she gets married.  She gets married; he marries Martha Washington.  He's friends with her.  There's not one shred of evidence that anything untoward happened."

"And everything else that this man has done in his life shows you that he is dedicated to God, dedicated to virtue and honor, and now they're going to smear in a series that will show him as an adulterer," Glenn said.

"You know I have books on George Washington because I collect books on George Washington.  And please, if you ever find an old George Washington book, if you ever find anything on George Washington that is old, preferably before 1900, and you don't know what to do with it, you send it to me, please.  Please.  I will preserve it, I will restore it, I will make sure that it is preserved for future generations.  But in the 1920s they started changing him.  They were books that were out on his character and his virtue, and one chapter was just on his ‑‑ just on his Christian belief.  That's been removed from the new editions of the book.  They were written by the people, they were contemporaries of him.  They were the ones who knew him, one on one, and they each testified to a different virtue and character.  And they're erasing all of it.  They think they know better than the people who lived and knew the man."

"Now let me tell you a story I have not told you before. When we wrote Being George Washington, we went to a couple of filmmakers who are friends of ours who I believe we have an announcement coming out next week, and they're filmmakers who are very, very accomplished and they are ‑‑ they're patriots. They read Being George Washington and I was talking to them and I said, 'I think this makes a great series or a miniseries. I think this could be John Adams.' And they said, 'Are you kidding me? This is a Blockbuster film. This is fantastic.'"

"They brought it to Hollywood; no interest. And I wrote it off as, 'Okay, well, there's no interest in me. Don't attach me. We'll help you. Don't attach me at all.''No, Glenn. There's no interest.' Quote: 'George Washington won't sell'. And I said, "Did you tell them about John Adams? Remember the series on HBO? How much did that sell? That set the world on fire in America. That was a great series.' 'I know. They don't want to hear it. There is zero interest in George Washington.'"

"Now let me add this: Tom Hanks, Tom Hanks wanted to do a movie on George Washington," Glenn said. "He may have been Washington.  And there's another filmmaker that was involved.  My guys, my guys know this story firsthand.  No interest."

"Historically accurate George Washington, zero interest in Hollywood."

"Now NBC Universal decides to make a series where it shows him as an adulterer? Shows him as a deeply troubled and flawed individual and all of a sudden Universal is wildly interested and NBC can't wait to put that on?"

"Unbelievable"

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
