The end of the world is near: Chris Matthews defends… the Tea Party?

Resident Obama lapdog Chris Matthews offered a curious defense of Virginia congressional candidate Dave Brat and the Tea Party in general during an appearance on MSNBC’s Ronan Farrow Daily on Wednesday.

“I guess there's one word for Chris Matthews, and that would be ‘schizophrenic.’ I mean he's flaming liberal… continually referring to conservatives as racists with absolutely no evidence,” Pat said on radio this morning. “However, every once in a while… he will sound like a right wing kook on a late night Fox News show.”

After defeating House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), Brat, an economics professor at Randolph-Macon College, will now face off against Democratic challenger and fellow Randolph-Macon professor Jack Trammell. Host Ronan Farrow pointed to each man’s rating on the popular website RateMyProfessors.com to show that Trammell is more popular among students. Matthews was not pleased with Farrow’s characterization.

“Is it rare to see that kind of brazen intellectualism, particularly in populist candidates like this,” Farrow asked after mentioning the ratings.

“Well, first of all, I don’t think you can assume that the liberals are smarter than the conservative professors,” Matthews shot back. “I think that’s crazy talk like that and it’s exactly the kind of attitude conservatives can’t stand. I don’t know which professor is more popular, but that doesn’t mean it’s a better professor, first of all.”

Matthews went on to commend Brat’s poise and eloquence.

“Secondly, I was listening to Brat last night, I listened to him today, I think he’s very sophisticated for a politician,” he continued. “He’s certainly up to the ranks in most politicians I’ve ever dealt with. He speaks in a speculative manner, in an intellectual manner, he can handle any debate on this program or my program.”

“So this looking down our noses at Tea Party people has got to stop,” Mathews added. “They have a message, they are as American as any liberal is, and they are really angry at the failure of the system.”

Matthews passionately argues that the media’s elitist attitude toward conservatives and Tea Party members must stop, but he has built much of his audience and reputation over the last several years by deriding ‘right wing extremists’ who criticize the Obama Administration.

“Of course, if you look at the lead-in question, which was incredibly stupid by Ronan Farrow, [it is] much less idiotic, much less offensive to me than the things Chris Matthews has said in the past,” Stu concluded. “For example, identifying the face of the Tea Party as a bunch of placards with Hitler mustaches and black face. That is way more offensive and not even remotely close to true. Ronan Farrow, stupid point. But to get upset about that after the stuff Chris Matthews has said is really weird.”

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
