Glenn shares letter he wrote to MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry following her apology to the Romney family

MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry came under fire last week for comments made on her show about the Romney family. During a “caption this photo” segment, the panel of comedians had a laugh over former Gov. Mitt Romney’s adopted black grandson, Kieran Romney, who appeared with the rest of the Romney grandchildren in a photo.

The panel’s remarks, which included a ‘joke’ about the photo is somehow symbolic of the Republican Party’s “diversity” issues, were immediately scrutinized by the left and right. Harris-Perry took to Twitter immediately after the incident to apologize and followed it up with a tearful on-air mea culpa yesterday.

Watch the original segment and apology in the clip below:

During an appearance on Fox News Sunday, Gov. Romney accepted Harris-Perry’s apology and suggested it was time for everyone to move on. On radio this morning, Glenn explained that he actually wrote Harris-Perry a letter expressing why he believes she has been treated wrongly in this particular situation.

“Here's what happened. There's blood in the water at MSNBC because they have made so many bad hires and [done] so many bad things,” Glenn explained. “I don't know Melissa Harris-Perry, but I don't believe that she's a bad person. I disagree with her on everything. But… I've never gotten the impression that she's a bad human being… And I don't think she said anything bad.”

Since he did not have a way to get in contact with her directly, Glenn wrote the following note to his P.R. person:

I know the Romneys. They are good, loving people. Racism is a human problem. It does not discriminate on color or political party. I'm not sure that Melissa Harris-Perry or any of the people at NBC see the heart of Christians and conservatives in our country. It's easy to lump all of us in with cartoon versions of people and even easier to dismiss us as unthinking, unfeeling cavemen who hate everything that looks or sounds new or different. It saddens me that no one ever takes the time to even try to see the American people for who they really are.

I've been up in the mountains for two weeks as you know. But when I got home and saw the apology for what she said about Romney, I thought I was going to lose my mind. She apologizes, for what? It was a break with comedians. Yes, it wasn't nice. Yes, it was hurtful and divisive, if that was the intent. But it clearly was not. There are many dishonest, destructive, and arrogant people on MSNBC, but I don't think this, by any means, was an example of a person like that.

When I saw her apologize on air, I knew it was real. And I have been there. I don’t apologize for my opinion or political views, no one should be forced to. Calling me a conservative or calling somebody else a Marxist is not an insult. It is a political label, and it is fair game. Going after children, as she said, is not fair game. But that wasn’t her intent. I truly believe that our side now is refusing to see her – who she is – and we are engaging now in the worst kind of political destruction. Both sides do it. Both sides will lose in the end if they continue to be the cause of the death of a once great and united people.

Could you please pass a note from me to her? I have no idea how to get it to her, but I want her to know that while we may and should meet on the battlefield of ideas, the politics of destruction has got to stop. I fear this time our side sees blood in the water and is going after her and MSNBC. It’s more wrong than anything she said here, especially since their intent is to hurt and to destroy and hers was not. I'll be making this point on the air on Monday. She needs to know there are people that don't hate her and do have a reason. We do not have a right as people to not be offended. We do have a right to speak our mind. We do have the right to tell a joke. But as citizens of a free society we must also recognize that because we share those rights with a very diverse society, we are going to hear many bad jokes, many crazy opinions, and many wrong theories. We need to celebrate the fact and recognize that those theories, those crazy opinions, and those stumbles will make us stronger as individuals.

Please let her know she's in my family's prayers tonight. She's wrong on many things, but I don't believe she's a bad person. And even the best of us screw up. In the grand scheme of things, if this is her big screw up, she's way ahead of me as a human being.

“I think that what's happening here is a collective moment for our side to say: Let's not become those things we despise. Let's not become that,” Glenn concluded. “My side is the truth. My side is humanity.”

With cops under fire, businesses destroyed, and innocent civilians beaten and killed, where is the justice that well-meaning protesters were seeking for George Floyd?

On Wednesday night's special, Glenn Beck goes one on one with Blexit founder and "Blackout" author Candace Owens about what's really driving the riots, white privilege in America, and why it sickens her that Floyd has become a martyr for Black America.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan told Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday that a network of radical extremist terrorist organizations, which includes Antifa, are coordinating and escalating many of the violent riots in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Lara, who has done extensive reporting on Antifa, said it's "extraordinary" that so many Americans in the media and politics are defending the "very violent terrorist organization."

"[The media is] pretending that they care about journalism. They don't. They care about silencing, intimidating, destroying, annihilating, and getting us all to self-sensor so we don't cover any of the subjects they don't want us talking about," she said.

"For those of us who've followed [Antifa] for a while, and know what they're doing and what their agenda is, what has always been troubling is the way so many people in the media and in the political establishment have given them cover to operate," Laura added. "These are extremists. And you see a lot of parallels between extremists on the left and the right ... they pretty much operate the same way, exactly. And there's no difference between what Antifa is doing and the 'Brown Shirts' of Nazi Germany. Or the 'Black Shirts' of Mussolini."

She read the 10 points of action listed by an extremist group called the "Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement", which culminates with "Liberation begins where America dies."

Glenn recalled a prediction he made approximately 15 years ago, that "socialist, communists, radicals, anarchists, [and] Islamists would all work together ... they would all see the opportunity and work toward the same goal. And that's destruction of capitalism, and destruction of the Western world."

"A few years ago, I probably would not have agreed with you on that," Laura responded. "But I now see that you're absolutely correct."

The Trump-deranged media is calling the president a "coward" because he was moved to an underground bunker as riots erupted outside the White House over the weekend.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to set the record straight. He told Glenn that under Title 18, US Code 3056, the Secret Service has the authority to protect the president however they deem necessary, with or without his consent.

Dan explained that the severity of the White House riots, which resulted in at least 50 Secret Service agents being injured, would very likely have warranted overriding the president's preference on whether or not to take shelter.

"Shame on the media ... for painting this as some kind of situation where Trump ran like a coward," Dan said. "Which is totally false and made-up. [...] They're morons. These are imbeciles with double digit IQs who are only in this to aggravate an already-bad situation. And it's a shame, because they're really incentivizing this kind of stuff to happen."

He also made it clear that the so-called protests over the death of George Floyd were actually "very strategic" riots organized by "Antifa terrorists."

"It was not even a protest. It should have been, and could have been ... but that's not what it was. It was an insurrection. It was a riot," Dan stated.

"I can tell you, from sources of mine that were there, [who are] more than credible and unimpeachable, that the attack at the White House -- and that's what it was over a period of days -- was very organized. It was done using very strategic tactics," he added. "I want to be crystal clear, this was organized by Antifa terrorists. It's not a joke. It's not hyperbole. These were people that were committed to an insurrection that was thankfully put down."

The media has been trying to discredit BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer after he recorded a disturbing video of a man being brutally beaten and stoned almost to death by rioters Saturday evening in Dallas.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to set the record straight.

"The very dishonest far-left media is working tirelessly at the moment to completely, not only discredit myself, but they always say, 'Elijah Schaffer who works for Glenn Beck's BlazeTV.' As if that's an insult. So I'm going to clear the air right now," he told Glenn.

"There was a group of about, I would say 150 rioters. They were not protesters. They were breaking windows. They broke into a bank. They broke into a bar. They were looting alcohol and partying on the streets while breaking glass. These were not people who were grieving over black lives," he added. "The police had lost control of the city."

Elijah went on to describe the violent scene, detailing the events leading up to the brutal beating of a man who was apparently trying to defend a local bar. Elijah posted a video of the incident on Twitter Saturday night.

*Warning: graphic content*

"Rioters with rocks and bricks and bats and weapons, 150 or more, were accosting him as he stood in front of the bar," Elijah said. "Then they started stoning him, Glenn! Medieval! Throwing rocks and bricks.... We're in America. This is 2020. We do not stone people in the United States of America!"
