The Dumbest Politician EVER

Stu filled in for Glenn on TV last night and hosted an impromptu award show, recognizing the Dumbest Politician Ever along with a lifetime achievement award in the category. You won’t believe the “gaffe” this politician made that secured the award...

Below is a transcript of this segment:

Okay, very exciting day today. Months of preparation have led to this moment. We’ve spent countless hours and sleepless nights scouring the archives. I’m happy to announce we finally finished reading and analyzing every piece of content ever created in human history, and now we can finally with authority crown the dumbest politician ever.

There were so many to consider, luminary imbeciles like Joe Biden, Jimmy Carter, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi. Oh, yes, they’re all strong contenders, but there can be only one. The vote was extremely close, up until the weekend, that is, when our winner uttered the dumbest thing any politician has ever said. What a moron! You’ll understand right away why our unanimous choice for the dumbest politician resides right under this carefully illustrated coffee filter.

The dumbest politician ever is Martin O’Malley. Get a load of this dupey dupe dupe. Martin O’Malley? More like Martin o’meatball. If dumb were dirt, he’d own about 100 acres—not playing with a full deck. I bet you’re dying to know what this knucklehead said that sealed his victory. It is dumb, really dumb. It makes Joe Biden telling a wheelchair-bound man to stand up look like the theory of relativity. If you haven’t heard what this guy said, sit down, brace yourself. Here comes the dumb.

VIDEO

Martin O’Malley: Every life matters, and that is why this issue is so important. Black lives matter. White lives matter. All lives matter. Black lives matter. White lives matter. All lives matter.

He repeated it. That’s right, every life matters. What a maroon. What a nincompoop. Can you believe it? Everybody knows only some lives matter. Let’s watch that blunder again in slo-mo. Watch. That’s right, what an idiot. It looks like somebody’s mommy played fumble the baby one too many times. So, so dumb, and boy, the Internet let him have it. “O’Malley just said all lives matter which means he just doesn’t get it.” I mean, how obvious is that?

O’Malley tried to undo the damage because he’s an idiot, and he tried to apologize anyway. He said he did his best to let everyone know he doesn’t really believe all lives matter because that’s crazy. Watch.

VIDEO

Martin O’Malley: That was a mistake on my part, and I meant no disrespect. I did not mean to be insensitive in any way or to communicate that I did not understand the tremendous passion, commitment, and feeling and depth of feeling that all of us should be attaching to this issue.

Too late, o’meatball, damage done. You can’t say that you think all humans matter and expect to get away with that. Okay, now stop the music. We one more award, the lifetime achievement award. O’Malley’s epic gaffe wouldn’t be possible if others didn’t pave the way before him.

Our lifetime award goes to the idiot racist who said this: “In a sense we have come to our nation’s capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men would be guaranteed be in alienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” black men as well as white men. Good thing the Internet didn’t exist when that gem of doltishness was barfed out. Our lifetime achievement award goes to Martin Luther King Jr. Wow, congrats to another racist from history who, like my O’Malley, doesn’t get the idea that only black lives matter.

Seriously, did you ever think you would live in a world where you would see something like that? The man said people’s lives matter and was booed. Is the left even listening to what they’re saying anymore? You really have to sit in wonder at the modern left. You can’t say all lives matter without being branded a racist.

The audience at the Netroots Nation event actually booed O’Malley. First they denied God three times at the convention; now they’re booing all lives matter. And the guy apologizes for it. He didn’t say one group mattered more. He said everyone mattered. It’s the most acceptable thing anyone could ever say. It’s like saying we shouldn’t torture hamsters for sport. No one is supposed to be on the other side of this one, and the media somehow didn’t seem to find this pro-hamster torture stance particularly notable. That’s of course because they’re too busy trying to destroy Republicans. They don’t have time to mock Democrats, of course.

They’re going all in on Donald freaking Trump, who I believe should get the real dumbest politician award maybe for what he said about John McCain. Watch.

VIDEO

Donald Trump: John McCain goes, oh boy, Trump makes my life difficult, he had 15,000 crazies show up, crazies. He called them all crazies. I said they weren’t crazy, they were great Americans. These people, if you would’ve seen these people, I know what a crazy is. I know all about crazies. These weren’t crazy.

So, he insulted me, and he insulted everybody in that room. I said somebody should run against John McCain, who has been, in my opinion, not so hot. I supported him for president. I raised $1 million for him. That’s a lot of money. I supported him. He lost. He let us down. He lost. I never liked him as much after that because I don’t like losers.

Frank, let me get to it. He’s not a war hero. He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured, okay? I hate to tell you. He’s a war hero because he was captured. Okay? I believe perhaps he’s a war hero, but right now he said some very bad things about a lot of people.

He said a lot of very bad things. Look, I am not a John McCain defender by any means. I honestly can’t stand John McCain. He’s been a horrific senator. He is not a good guy. One of the lowest moments in my entire life was the day I cast a vote for him. Since leaving war, he has been a net negative for this country, but that being said, Trump’s comment was one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard. You’re not a hero if you’re captured? Is that how it works, Donald, really?

Marcus Luttrell was held in captivity and tortured. Dietrich Bonhoeffer was held in captivity and tortured. Jesus of Nazareth was held in captivity and tortured. I don’t know if Trump knows those stories despite all the Bibles he receives. He should read them.

Okay, so are all those people not heroes, really? Here’s the thing, Don, anyone with the balls to put on a uniform and charge into a battlefield screaming with gunfire, explosions, chaos, they’re all heroes in my book. Sure, some go above and beyond, but they’re all heroes. You think it would be easy to be tortured for six years and not give the enemy propaganda? Do you think it was easy to give six years of life to a freaking torture camp? Can you imagine Trump in a torture camp? He wouldn’t last six minutes, let alone six years.

In the meantime, he should at least watch Vietnam in HD or something on Netflix. Anyone who had to step foot in the hell on earth that was the Vietnam War, they’re heroes, Don. Perhaps if you get that, I don’t know, maybe if you hadn’t been the beneficiary of a generous medical deferment in 1968 for bone spurs on your heels, bone spurs. Trump was a collegiate athlete. Bone spurs? That usually keeps you out one game.

I guess there’s a word. Some people have used a word for people like that who avoided military service. They called them cowards. Believe me, I am a coward. I would know. You’re not a hero if you’re captured, seriously? This is one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard from a politician on either side of the aisle.

Despite how you feel about John McCain, can you imagine how you would’ve reacted if a current Democrat senator said something like that? You’d be looking for their scalp, and for good reason, which reminds me, is Al Franken still a senator? Because while the media is excoriating Donald Trump, rightfully so in my opinion, I mean, everyone seems to be, I don’t know, avoiding the issues. McCain’s military service is one thing, but everyone seems to be giving Al Franken a pass. Here’s what he said: “I have tremendous respect for McCain but I don’t buy the war hero thing. Anybody can be captured. I thought the idea was to capture them. As far as I’m concerned he sat out the war.”

Has Franken apologized for that? I’m curious because maybe I’m being a little too hard on him. I don’t know, he’s only had 15 years. He’s probably working up to the apology. Saying sorry it’s so hard.

While Trump insulted the troops, the issue with Trump is not his stance on the troops. There’s a bigger problem, namely he’s just a terrible human being. Whenever he thinks he’s being wronged or has an opponent, he just starts hurling idiotic insults. When he finds someone he thinks slighted him, he attacks personally, whether it’s justified or not, without regard to how personal or ridiculous. When you can’t calm your anger dealing with Rosie O’Donnell, the LPGA, and Cher, maybe you should not be anywhere near the button, especially when we’re living in a society that thinks all lives matter is a controversial statement.

Soros is trying to elect MORE TEXAS RINOs. Here's how YOU can stop him.

Texas is under threat of a George Soros-backed takeover.

Soros-funded RINO judges have been elected in some of the highest courts in Texas. These judges implemented restrictions that have blocked nearly a thousand cases of voter fraud from being investigated or prosecuted from across the state. These new restrictions are similar to ones in place in states like George, Arizona, and Wisconsin, leaving Texas more susceptible to election corruption than ever. If Texas falls to corruption, America will lose its largest bastion of conservative electoral power in the nation. Without Texas, Republicans WILL NOT be able to win national elections and liberal corruption will go unchecked across the country.

Fortunately, there is a way to stop this: YOU.

If you live in Texas you have a chance to stand up against corruption and to fight back! Starting Tuesday, February 20th, early voting for the primaries begins, where three of these judges are up for election. Go out and vote. If the right people are voted in, there's a good chance the restrictions will be lifted and election fraud can once again be prosecuted.

But remember, you can't just go in and vote for anyone who has an "R" next to their name. Sorors knows that a registered Democrat would never stand a chance in Texas, so his lackeys register as Republicans and ride the little "R" right into office. So who do you vote for?

Fortunately, Glenn had Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on his show today and Ken gave us his list of judges that he vouches for. His list is as follows:

  • Gina Parker
  • Lee Finley
  • David Schenck
The Primary Election runs from February 20th to March 5th. This is your chance to get out there and make a difference. It might be the most important election you ever participate in. If you need to know where your nearest polling location is, or any other information regarding the election, you can go to votetexas.gov to find out more.
It's time to stand up.

Hypocrisy EXPOSED: The 'Amazon Files' and what WE are doing about it

Who is really banning books?

For years now, Conservatives have been taking flak from the left for supposed "book bans." The left likes to compare these "bans" to Nazi book burnings, accusing the right of sweeping authoritarian decrees designed to suppress information. In reality, this is a movement largely motivated by parents, who want to remove inappropriate books from children's libraries.

But if you want to discuss authoritarian book bans, look no further than the White House. As Glenn recently covered, the Biden administration has been pressuring the world's largest bookseller, Amazon, into suppressing books they disagree with.

On February 5th, 2024, Ohio Representative Jim Jordan released a slew of subpoenaed documents that exposed pressure placed on Amazon by the Biden Administration. The documents, which Jordan dubbed "The Amazon Files" after Elon Musk's "The Twitter Files," revealed an email conversation between Andrew Slavitt, a former White House senior adviser, and Amazon employees. In these emails, Slavitt complained that the top search results for books on "vaccines" were "concerning" and then requested that Amazon intervene. Amazon initially refused, not out of some altruistic concern for the free exchange of information. They thought any action taken would be "too visible" and would further exasperate the “Harry/Sally narrative,” referring to the outrage that followed Amazon's removal of Ryan T. Anderson’s book When Harry Became Sally.

Despite this initial refusal, Amazon agreed to meet with the White House a few days later. The number one item on their agenda was removing books from the website. An Amazon employee even admitted that the reason they even took this meeting was due to the pressure being placed on them by the Biden Administration.

What was the result of this meeting? Amazon caved. They began to implement ways of limiting the outreach of books that challenged the mainstream vaccine narrative and other books the White House might not like.

The White House was caught red-handed pressuring the world's largest bookseller to restrict the sale of books they consider in opposition to their narrative, and they have the gall to accuse conservatives of information suppression. This is just ONE of many actions committed by the Biden Administration that are more characteristic of a dictator than a president.

What can you do about it? Fortunately, you are not dependent on Amazon and its corrupted algorithm to help you find books. Every week right here on GlennBeck.com, we highlight books that Glenn is reading or talking about in our "Glenn's Bookshelf" series.

10 times Biden has acted like a DICTATOR

The left-wing media's most recent tirade is accusing Trump of being a dictator. But, as Glenn said, "Everything they're accusing us of, they're doing."

Since day one, the Biden administration has overstepped the bounds placed on the executive branch set by the Constitution. In Glenn's most recent TV Special, he examined ten times Biden acted like a dictator, NOT a president. Here are 10 of Biden's Dictator Moves, and click HERE to get ALL of the research that went into this week's Glenn TV special:

5 ways to protect your First Amendment rights. Number 4 will surprise you.

Buyenlarge / Contributor | Getty Images

Every day it seems Glenn covers another story revealing how people across the world at all levels of power DESPISE the fact that YOU have rights, and they are actively trying to curtail them. Recently, there has been a string of attacks against the rights outlined in the First Amendment: the freedom of religion, the freedom of speech, the freedom of press, the freedom of assembly, and the freedom to petition.

As a refresher, the First Amendment reads as follows:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

This is powerful stuff, there is a good reason the Founding Fathers made it the FIRST Amendment. It's also the reason why power-hungry elites are attacking it. These attacks are designed to control the way you think, speak, and believe, vote, what you read, and who holds your representatives responsible. The First Amendment is our strongest weapon against tyrants, and they know it.

So what can you do about it? Hope that some wig in Washinton will eventually do something? We know how well that works. The best thing to do is to stay active, engage in the issues you care about, and exercise your rights.

So where to start? Here are a few things YOU can do to protect your First Amendment rights:

Religion

The best way to flex your Freedom of Religion is to—you guessed it—practice your faith. Become an active member in your place of worship, go to scripture studies, invite your friends to that late afternoon event, and walk the life. This can impact the way you spend money as well. Shop the businesses and brands that share your values, and don't shop at the ones that scorn them. Keeping the community alive and healthy is the best way to ensure that generations to come will be able to experience the freedom you enjoy.

Speech

Much like religion, the best way to protect your freedom of speech is... to speak. Engage your friends and family in polite, civil conversation. Stand up for what you believe in, and make your case to your peers. Just remember to keep it friendly. No one ever won an argument by shouting down their opponent. The civil exchange of ideas is the cornerstone of our republic, and a dialogue where the participants are well-informed, considerate, compassionate, and open-minded can have permanent impacts on all involved.

Press

Freedom of the Press seems a little tricky at first. Unless you work for the media, what are you supposed to do? Quit your job and go work for the local newspaper? The good news is that exercising this right is not nearly that difficult. In fact, you are currently doing it. The best thing you can do is to read from outlets that produce informative content.

Assembly

Freedom of assembly is one of the more impactful yet underutilized freedoms in the First Amendment. Peaceably assembling and protesting with like-minded individuals can hugely influence politicians and policies while simultaneously creating community and fellowship between attendees. It's understandable why more people don't turn out. We're all busy people with busy schedules, and flying out to D.C. for the weekend seems like a daunting task to many. Thankfully, you don't have to go out all the way to D.C. to make a difference. Gather some like-minded people in your town and bring awareness to issues that impact your community. Big change starts locally, and exercising your freedom to assemble can be the catalyst to lasting impact.

Petition

If you've been a long-time listener of Glenn, then you will have heard a few of his calls to action where he asks his audience to contact their representatives about a particular piece of policy. There is a good reason Glenn keeps on doing those: they work. Whether it's your local mayor or your senator, a call and an email go a long way. If you really want to make a change, convince your friends and family to reach out as well.
