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.”

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
