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."

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.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
