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."

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:
