Media's dishonest motives in Trayvon Martin case could end in riots

Since the news of Trayvon Martin's death hit the news cycle, the mainstream media has portrayed the teenager as a sweet young-man, drinking fruit punch and eating skittles, when, out of know where, George Zimmerman attacked him. Forget innocent until proven guilty, George Zimmer was guilty of Second Degree Murder, without a shadow of a doubt in the eyes of the mainstream media.

Why?

Race…obviously! (…forget the fact that George Zimmerman is a multi-racial Hispanic American, that doesn't matter to the MSM.)

"From the beginning, they were trying to make every element of it [the Trayvon Martin case] about race," Stu said.

Well, after nearly a year of the media doing nothing but paint Martin as a strapping young man and Zimmerman has a racist killer, this Florida community is now being told that Zimmerman will walk. Whether you like him or not, the facts are revealing that his plea of self-defense could quite easily be a legitimate one. But sadly, that doesn't matter to the public. They're not going to react well to this.

"You get a year of this, then you get one week of a little bit of evidence that completely contradicts every element of that story.  And then you expect people to not react and get upset?  Of course.  I mean, the media has been inciting.  It has nothing to do with a particular community.  I think any community that was targeted by the media, given a bill of goods like this, would be a risk to riot," Stu continued.

Stu continued, "I mean, the media has told us for a year that there is a huge injustice if this man walks free.  Without any evidence, without anything to back it.  And now that we find out that the evidence is on the other side, it's a much smaller focus, it's in a much smaller period of time.  It's more technical evidence and everything else.  It's not the emotion of this black man was killed by this white man.  You know, it has to be, it has to run through your head.  I mean, just ‑‑ it just, of all logic would run through your head.  I think on any group of people that was sold a bill of goods like this.  And the media is responsible for it.  They are responsible."

"There's no doubt about that," Pat agreed.  "And they're still, they're still beating that drum now."

Well, they're trying anyway. Only now that evidence has been laid out, it's not quite as easy.

Cable news hosts like MSNBC's Al Sharpton are saying things like, 'There's little hope Zimmerman will be convicted.'

"Why are you hoping for conviction when there's no evidence to convict him on?" Pat rhetorically asked. "It's really bizarre."

"Think about the fact that Al Sharpton has a television show in this country," Stu began (now THAT is bizarre). "This man who's been discredited for false accusations over and over and over again, has intentionally ruined the lives of public servants for no reason. And the man is rewarded with a television show every night where he's now spouting the exact same things he said about, you know, Tawana Brawley and Duke Lacrosse. Now it's George Zimmerman."

"The guy who's yelling on the megaphone on the steps back in the eighties," Stu continued, "he's now the authority on television every night for a major corporation!  I mean, we've come a long freaking way.  So to say that there's no chance of this happening as far as rioting or, you know, looting or who knows what else I think is absolute — you're in denial if you don't consider the possibility."

Luckily for Zimmerman, Sharpton's ratings are abysmal. Unfortunately, Al Sharpton's not the only one who painted him in this light.

Here are just a few examples of the mainstream media's "reporting" on the case...

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.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.
