Caught on tape: Philadelphia Eagle drops the N-word at a concert

Philadelphia Eagle wide receiver Riley Cooper is in some serious hot water after being caught on camera using the N-word during an angry outburst at a recent Kenny Chesney concert. Cooper has since apologized and accepted a fine from the NFL, but this is not the end of the issue as some people are calling for his days in the NFL to be over.

“He's a Philadelphia Eagles player, he went to a Kenny Chesney concert, apparently got in a fight out in the parking lot a little bit potentially, went inside, had an altercation with a black security guard and was angry and on a camera phone used the N word in his anger,” Stu explained on radio this morning. “Obviously horrible and nobody's happy about it, including seemingly him who has, you know, been very apologetic about it.”

Considering Cooper has apologized and taken full responsibility for his actions, you would think this story would be over and done with– but political correctness has once again run amuck with many calling for Cooper’s head.

Stu, however, was able to share a remarkably refreshing piece of audio from the NFL Network. While flipping channels last night, he was treated to this commentary on “race relations” from Dr. Harry Edwards, a sociology professor at the University of California.

NFL NETWORK: If you had a chance to talk to Riley Cooper right now, a chance to advise him, what would you say?

EDWARDS: Well, I would wish him well. I would be more interested in talking to the Eagles team because it is they who will determine the outcome of this thing more than anybody else. They have a choice now between becoming frayed and divided and confused and falling apart as opposed to choosing not to be offended any longer by this situation. This is something that African Americans do quite frequently. They choose not to be offended when the N bomb comes up in a personal conversation between blacks. They choose not to be offended when they hear it on rap records. They choose not to be offended when black comedians use it in some of the most vicious and degrading types of scenarios. We simply choose not to be offended. And I think that that's the choice that this team is confronted with, the team leaders. African American team leaders have to step up and accept that apology which seems to be heartfelt, which seemed to be sincere and we have to move on.

“Thank you. This guy is in Berkeley,” Glenn asked. “How did he get in? He's going to lose his job. I hope he has tenure.”

“You want to talk about taking power back from that word,” Stu said. “That is how you do it. You sit there and you are not offended by it. You let it go. You don't let it change your life and make you angry.”

 

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.
