Media Matters misses the point on Talkers speech

Yesterday, Glenn spoke out about the importance of protecting free speech during the Talkers NYC 2013 conference. Glenn was honored with the Freedom of Speech award, and took the time to talk about why it's important to protect all speech, especially speech that some might find offensive. Media Matters, the disgraced and discredited boycott-leading blog, once again managed to miss the point.

"I gave a speech yesterday. I won the Freedom of Speech award yesterday here in New York City, and I gave a speech, and Media Matters was standing right there. They were practically on the stage. I'm not kidding you, practically on the stage and they were videotaping the whole thing. And it's a freedom of speech award and so I used and exercised my freedom of speech," Glenn said.

During the speech, Glenn spoke about the importance of protecting the right of freedom of speech, but also emphasized that people should be responsible in how they exercise that right. He specifically pointed out that while cartoonists could draw mocking images of the Prophet Muhammad, it doesn't mean that they should.

“But should you have the right to do it? Yes. But this society focuses on rights and not responsibilities," Glenn said.

He added, “Any role that I have played in dividing, I wish I could take it back — I don’t wish I could take back the truth that was spoken, but [many] times I could’ve said it differently."

So that whole “protect the rights of those we vehemently disagree with” message really didn’t resonate with the disgraced and discredited Media Matters blog, best known for attempting to lead ineffective boycotts against anyone they disagree with. The “dopes” from MMFA provided their (un)insightful analysis of Glenn’s speech to the press which boiled down to: “Uh, we don’t believe it.”

"Brand repair doesn't happen immediately," the MMFA representative said. "It's a process. Beck knows that. This soft contrition seemed like an attempt to advance that slow process. I'm not sure this will be effective, though, given that his approach hasn't really changed."

Please, tell us more before you retreat further into irrelevancy...

Why would the AP, and by extension other media outlets, decide to include such uninsightful commentary from a disgraced blogger whose whole career is based around attacking the First Amendment rights of those he disagrees with?

"Well, it's not a new Glenn Beck, you dope," Glenn said. "It's the same Glenn Beck that has been here that everyone has heard that doesn't have an agenda."

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
