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.”

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
