MSNBC forced to apologize for offensive racially charged tweet

It was just a few weeks ago that MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry came under fire for a segment on her show that poked fun at a picture featuring Mitt Romney’s adopted black grandson Kieran. And the network has made headlines yet again – this time for a tweet that implied ‘right-wingers’ would not like the latest iteration of a Cheerios commercial featuring a biracial family.

“Maybe the rightwing will hate it, but everyone else will go awww: the adorable new #Cheerios ad w/ biracial family,” MSNBC Tweeted Wednesday night, linking to the new ad.

It took no time at all for biracial ‘right wing’ families to take to Twitter using #MyRightWingBiracialFamily to post pictures of their loving, beautiful families. MSNBC ultimately chose to remove the offensive tweet, and the network issued a response asserting that the original message did not reflect MSNBC’s position:

While Glenn was very vocal in defending Harris-Perry earlier this month, the displays of intolerance and racism over at MSNBC are growing too frequent to be passed off as an accident.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

“I have accepted the apologies of MSNBC. We have defended people that we disagree with and said, ‘Look, they don’t mean it that way.’ [But] this is a very big deal because this shows a pattern at MSNBC, and, honestly, Melissa Harris Perry, your apology means a lot less because of this,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “I'm sorry, MSNBC, but you are racist, and we know who you are now… They issued an apology and said, ‘We apologize for this tweet, and it doesn't reflect the network or our values.’ Yes, it does.”

Stu was willing to defend the individual who tweeted the message because that person was really just sharing a message that is inline with the sentiments expressed across the network.

“I got to defend the guy a little bit… If you're at MSNBC and you tweet [that] aren't you in the pocket of what everybody is saying? Every day they're entire line-up is just calling conservatives racist. How could they possibly not think that was appropriate,” Stu asked. “Al Sharpton has a show on your network that's a million times worse than this tweet! They haven't apologized for that yet… Think of what Chris Matthews does every day. The only prism he sees anything through is race.”

While the person who tweeted the message is really just an innocent bystander in this situation, Glenn believes the only way for MSNBC to prove it is truly sorry for this latest example of racism is to fire the person responsible.

“Let he tell you something, MSNBC: There is no excuse for it,” Glenn said. “If that is indeed who you aren't, then you should fire that individual and make sure that everybody knows that you fired him – just like ABC did with the ‘chink in the armor’ [reporter]. ‘Chink in the armor’ is a phrase that everybody uses. And it was a wrong firing. But they so overreacted because of the Mouse.”

“But [MSNBC is] so unafraid of calling people racist… They meant this one,” he concluded. “They meant this. And they think they're going to just get away with it, and they probably will. ‘Oh, we retracted that. We're sorry.’ No, it's who you are.”

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
