Joe Scarborough’s jealousy gets ugly

Before S.E. Cupp arrived on the scene, MSNBC's lone "conservative" voice belonged to the not so conservative Joe Scarborough.

Scarborough works for MSNBC, a network that, with the exception of S.E. Cupp, has a lineup of hosts who have thrills up their legs every time the president gives a speech. They have "news" hosts that just recently met with President Obama at the White House for council with him on how to handle PR. MSNBC is a network that threatened to fight Mitt Romney's son. The station that openly pines for Obama.

Well, MSNBC's Joe Scarborough is apparently so concerned about the "conservative movement" that he made this on-air statement about some of the most powerful voices in conservatism:

"What do you do to a school yard bully? You punch him in the face. You think any of these people in talk radio, if their punched in the face by a Republican nominee, do you think they would push back? No! They're cowards. They're bullies. Punch them in the face and they back off. Bullies do that. Mitt Romney, and we said it nonstop, for two years he would never stand up to these bullies, and so they framed his campaign and he got his tail whipped.

[...]

And we started saying this in 2010, when Glenn Beck said the president was a racist who hates all white people."

Glenn obviously had a few comments to make after listening to the audio of failed talk radio host Joe Scarborough.

"First of all, Joe, you might want to read up on Marxism, so maybe you can recognize Marxist policies when you see and hear them from your friends and co-workers: class-warfare, redistribution of wealth — it may sound familiar. You may also recognize somebody getting punched in the face, and not sitting down.  Still standing up to the bully on the street.  I know because I've stood up for a very long time to the bullies, mainly people like you and the people of MSNBC, because I think you just tried to punch me in the face again.  I don't really care," Glenn said.

"But secondly," he added, "if you're worried that Mitt wouldn't stand up to me.  If by not standing up, Joe, you mean by never appearing on my show, once, ever during the campaign, not ever during the campaign, not on the radio, not on the television, not on the website.  Nowhere, zero contact with Mitt Romney.  Zero.  If by not standing up to me you mean by not taking our advice on anything, ever, you have that exactly right.  You have that exactly right.

And I realize you're a tough guy Joe that wants to punch somebody in face.  It seems that you're in a very hostile work environment.  A lot of the people in the MSNBC wants to punch people in the face. But I'm a lover, Joe, not a fighter. My friend however, Pat, has made the offer that you can punch him in the face, anytime — anytime you'd like — and just see what happens."

"Anytime, yeah," Pat quipped. "See what happens. I'd love that."

"So let's get this straight," Glenn continued, "Joe Scarborough is on MSNBC for a reason, and here it is:  He's not a conservative.  I don't know what he is — and I don't care.  I really don't care.  But I'm really sick of these Republicans.  You know what, I think that's what he is.  He's a Republican. And I'm really sick of these Republicans who're just progressive Republicans who try to talk down to everybody and tell us how smart they are, and how everybody else is just so stupid.  That's great.  You can have your silly opinion there Joe.  I don't speak for the Republicans.  I don't want to speak for the Republicans.  I speak for me.  I tell you how I feel.  I don't want to speak for the Republican.  I wish that the Republicans would stop speaking quite honestly.  But tough guy Joe, he talks about bullies, and talk radio.  I'd like to know who these bullies are.  Who? How are we being bullies?  We had no contact with Mitt Romney.  Here's how much contact I had Mitt Romney.  The week before he was elected I flew to see his rally.  He was about 25 feet away from me.  His people knew we were on the tarmac.  I didn't even get a wave.  Nothing.

There were two planes on the tarmac.  His and mine — three — and the press plane.  He landed, then about an hour later we landed.  We parked our plane next to him so when he's coming down the stairs you're hearing the sounds of the plane so we're pretty hard to miss.  Not even "hey!" Nothing.  Here's how close we are: I gave Mitt Romney my George Washington farewell address, and I would like to read the note I got from him after giving him my original copy."

"The whole thing?" Pat asked. "Are you going to read the whole note?"

"Oh wait, I didn't get one. He didn't send one.  That's how tight we are," Glenn said sarcastically. "That's just how how tight we are. 

So please, Joe, give it a rest.  Joe considered talk radio show bullies, because when he got into talk radio he got his teeth kicked in.  This is actually a hard job.  But he got his teeth kicked in and he got bullied out of the media, and wound up in progressive TV land. 

People in talk radio they can see through frauds that fast.  That's why you either succeed or you fail in talk radio so fast, because this is -- look I do every medium.  The only thing I don't do I don't do horse whispering and smoke signals.  But -- I also don't do Morse code — but I believe we are in every possible medium available.  This is the hardest one because you're without a net.  You've got nothing but rope and you can hang yourself every single day, and Joe Scarborough did a very nice job.  He makes the nooses himself, every single day.  He's kind of like the Dunkin' Donuts guy, "Time to make the nooses". 

You shouldn't make nooses, you keep hanging yourself.

He gets his teeth kicked in and he winds up selling his soul and cavorting with the enemy, then he becomes the enemy. 

Joe, good for you. You made your bed and you're lying in it, and it's wonderful.  And I know you feel the same way about me: 'Beck you made your bed and you're lying in it.' 

Yes, I am.  Yes, I am.  And I'm thrilled with the bed I am in. I'm thrilled with it.  But you keep "leaning forward" or whatever Marxist themes that your propagandists have worked out with the president. Keep "moving forward". 

We'll keep standing straight as Americans that believe in the constitution and your right to have a different opinion without getting punched in the face."

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
