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."

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.
