CNN: Dorner ‘had a point’; rampage was ‘exciting’

Common sense would seem to dictate that the police pursuit that ended in the death of cop-killer Chris Dorner would be met with praise. But not if you watched CNN! They sympathized with Dorner, concluding that he ‘had a point’ with his grievance. One CNN commentator even called the pursuit ‘exciting’ because Dorner was a ‘real life super hero’ to many people. Glenn reacted to the news on radio this morning.

During an appearance on CNN, HuffPost Live host Marc Lamont Hill said, “This has been an important conversation that we’ve had about police brutality, about police corruption, about state violence."

“As far as Dorner himself goes, he’s been like a real life superhero to many people,” Hill continued.

Hill also said that "when you read his manifesto, when you read the message that he left, he wasn’t entirely crazy."

“It’s almost like watching ‘Django Unchained’ in real life,” he explained. “It’s kind of exciting.”

Hill did pay lip service to the idea that the killing of innocent people was wrong, but his comments indicated that overall he was entertained by the whole tragedy.

"If this were happening and this guy, this cop, were not a leftist, you know what the coverage would have been last night?" Glenn asked. "The coverage last night would have been they finally got this guy and here's what he said in his manifesto. Listen to this crazy talk. Listen to what he said in his manifesto,"

"His manifesto is anti‑cop, anti‑government. His manifesto is the rantings of a madman. Now, who else is he connected to? Was he ever watching Fox? Was he ever listening to Rush Limbaugh? Because how many more of these guys are out there? And then they would have run all of the stories that they could possibly find about the violence from the right. They would have covered everything," Glenn said.

"But instead they are quoting a crazy killer's manifesto and saying he's making some ‑‑ he's making some good points," Glenn continued.

"The biggest, the number one problem in America is the indoctrination in America. All the way from Hollywood to the news. And you know what? When you're alone, when you're just a blogger, when you have just a few websites that are just mocked all the time, those few websites can't create enough momentum to keep a story alive. They can't. Because they're constantly being mocked and ridiculed. And the silence is deafening. And people, because they don't trust the news anymore, don't watch it. Instead they get it from Jon Stewart."

"At TheBlaze we've been ‑‑ we're working tirelessly to get it right, and sometimes we screw it up. But the things that we're working on that we're planning, we'll eventually shut these guys down. And they will run to the government, and they will try to limit people like me, places like TheBlaze, they will use the FCC and they will use new regulation, they will use scare tactics, bullying tactics. They will bully not only us as a business but they will bully any sponsors or anybody else."

Glenn predicted that as mainstream media outlets lose viewers and readers to online citizen journalists, they will eventually run to the federal government for a bailout and claim that it's important to keep these outdated news institutions alive.

"And believe me, the United States government will bail the journalists out. They will bail out the New York Times because it's the paper of record, you know. And they will bail them out and they will become even more Pravda‑like."

"They lose as long as we have the Internet. They lose as long as the Internet remains free. The bullies on the right and the bullies on the left lose, as long as you are free to speak your mind and tell the truth. It's going to get harder and harder to do that," Glenn said.

Glenn said despite the struggle ahead in the fight for freedom, the challenges will ultimately mold people who seek truth into something strong.

"How lucky we are to be able to be pushed and prodded. And to find what we really, truly mean, to find what we truly believe, to find what's worth fighting for," Glenn explained. "Soft times made us lazy, but hard times will make us who we really are."

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.
