WWE creates controversial Tea Party wrestler

In one of the more bizarre slams on the Tea Party to date, the WWE decided to create a villain who just happens to be a racist Tea Partier. It’s an especially bizarre move because the WWE audience is mainly middle America and thus likely largely made up of conservatives.

"The WWE now has put a new character out that is demonizing the TEA Party. You know Linda McMahon, I'm sorry you didn't win. We should have seen how your true colors early on, and I think we did," Glenn said. "She's just one of these progressive Republicans that we worry about."

The character, Zeb Colter, is a Vietnam veteran who criticizes people who don't speak English and have "faces I don't even recognize". He talks about deporting immigrants (no distinction between legal and illegal).

Oh, and he is using "Truth" and "We the People" as a villainous catchphrase. Awesome.

"So may I ask: Did George Soros buy the WWE? Is this a Cass Sunstein presentation? And maybe it's just us. Maybe ‑‑ you know what? Maybe we're wrong. Maybe that's the way WWE people view the TEA Party. And maybe they love to hate the TEA Party. But I have to tell you, I expect that from Hollywood, but I don't expect ‑‑ if I'm getting my entertainment from somebody that I think is on my side ‑‑ and I'm sorry. I just don't see a bunch of progressives going and buying their tickets to the WWE. Do you? I mean, and maybe there are. I tend to notice that the progressives are not as popular in the South unless they've moved from the North. So I'm just trying to figure out exactly who they're trying to appeal here, who they're appealing to."

Stu argued, "Wouldn't the argument be, I mean at least one of the arguments would be, okay, they're trying to create villains. They do this all the time. They are trying to create a villain. Like when I was a kid, I remember, like, the Iron Sheik. And the Iron Sheik was from I think Iran and he was always saying terrible things about America. Now, that didn't mean the WWF at the time didn't like America. They were trying to make a villain out of the Iron Sheik, right? But this is different. It seems that the villain, the guy you're supposed to hate, is this stereotype of a conservative that I've never met."

Glenn was surprised that the WWE would make the villain a Tea Party member, especially since their audience likely leans conservative. Glenn thought it was foolish of them to embrace the media stereotype of the Tea Party for ratings.

"You're making a villain out of what? Probably 80% of your audience who's tired as it is of being miscast? They're tired of this," Glenn said.

"I'm sick and tired of being miscast. I am sick and tired of it. It is lazy at best. And I certainly am not going to give any more time or my money to any organization that is miscasting, is making it harder for me and my family to stand up for what I believe in. You're mocking me for standing up for the Constitution of the United States of America? You're mocking me for standing up for law and order? Equal justice under the law? Equal justice. I've been that my whole life. You're mocking me for standing up for the same principles and values that Martin Luther King stood up for? I don't think so. In my own camp? No, I don't think so. Get the hell out."

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
