Trump Pimps 9/11 as 'New York Values'

We all know what Ted Cruz really meant when he said Donald Trump "embodies New York values" on the Howie Carr Show---and it had nothing to do with 9/11. That didn't stop Donald Trump from using 9/11 in a cheap way during last night's GOP debate in South Carolina.

"For Donald Trump to play that card was a despicable slap in the face to 9/11," Glenn said Friday on The Glenn Beck Program.

Instead of challenging Cruz's intent---that Donald Trump represents progressive liberal views---the real estate mogul went to the hallowed ground of 9/11.

"The people in New York fought and fought and fought, and we saw more death and even the smell of death, nobody understood it, and it was with us for months---the smell, the air---and we rebuilt downtown Manhattan," said Trump. "And everybody in the world watched and everybody in the world loved New York and New Yorkers. And I have to tell you that was a very insulting statement that Ted made."

During the debate, Cruz put into context the true intent behind his words.

"There are many, many wonderful, wonderful working men and women in the state of New York," said Cruz. "But everyone understands that the values in New York City are socially liberal, are pro-abortion, are pro-gay marriage, [and] focus around money and the media."

Sensible people know the tragedy of 9/11 has absolutely nothing to do with New York values. However, the mainstream media---who jumped on Rudi Guiliani during the 2008 campaign for using 9/11---have rallied around Trump, crucifying Ted Cruz in the process.

 

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:

GLENN: Welcome back to the program. Glad you're here. Let me go to Taylor. Hi, Taylor, you're on the Glenn Beck Program. Welcome.

CALLER: Hey, there. I thought Ted Cruz did a marvelous last night. But I want to call out Fox News and people like Andrea Tantaros that tweet out these pictures of the New York firefighters and the flagpole. We all know what Ted Cruz meant. He wasn't bashing first responders with New York values. Everyone knows and knew exactly what he meant. It's just too bad that Fox News has to play into this hand. They know what he meant. I'm on board with you now. I'm dumping Fox News. Total insult at Ted. It was a huge disappointment to see that.

STU: There's a lot of, well, I like New York and Donald likes New York, therefore, as the media I'm going to praise him for that.

PAT: It's so ridiculous. New York elected a communist mayor, that's what he's saying.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: A guy who went and visited and donated to the Sandinistas when we were at war with them in the '80s! Come on. He's a communist.

GLENN: He's a communist. The guy they elected as mayor of New York is a communist, and everybody knows it. And for Donald Trump to play that card was a despicable slap in the face to 9/11.

PAT: Jeez. Are you kidding me? What does 9/11 have to do with the values of -- nothing. Zero.

STU: They're obviously good people in New York. Was Ted Cruz saying there's not good people in New York?

PAT: No.

STU: I'm critical of the way they mourned that tragedy. That's not what Ted Cruz was saying. What he was saying is they're really, really liberal. And it's his way I think of saying that Donald Trump is also really, really liberal without saying it.

GLENN: Everybody knows it. And the fact that the media is all standing behind and saying -- and, Taylor, you're exactly right. That the media is coming out and saying, "Donald Trump is exactly right on it."

PAT: No, he wasn't.

GLENN: They're all praising him. It's because they're all liberal.

STU: In New York.

GLENN: They all think like that in New York. They all think that way in New York. It's really amazing. I don't know who won that one. Because to me, I thought it was shameful. It was -- I can't believe that George Bush would use a picture of him in Air Force One on 9/11. Using that as a -- that's exactly what that was.

PAT: Oh, it's worse.

GLENN: Oh, yeah.

PAT: He's talking about the smell of death. 9/11 because Ted Cruz brought up the New York attitude. Because he's talking about the people who elect communists. Come on. Oh, man.

GLENN: I would like to see the dial test on that. Because I don't think there's a conservative out there that was on the fence that thought Donald Trump won that.

STU: The media really says he won.

GLENN: The media really loves him on that.

STU: Not only did they attack him and say don't use 9/11, it's absolutely wrong. But they also did it to Rudy Giuliani. Why is the media picking Donald Trump as the one guy who can use 9/11?

GLENN: They hate Ted Cruz.

STU: Exactly.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan told Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday that a network of radical extremist terrorist organizations, which includes Antifa, are coordinating and escalating many of the violent riots in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Lara, who has done extensive reporting on Antifa, said it's "extraordinary" that so many Americans in the media and politics are defending the "very violent terrorist organization."

"[The media is] pretending that they care about journalism. They don't. They care about silencing, intimidating, destroying, annihilating, and getting us all to self-sensor so we don't cover any of the subjects they don't want us talking about," she said.

"For those of us who've followed [Antifa] for a while, and know what they're doing and what their agenda is, what has always been troubling is the way so many people in the media and in the political establishment have given them cover to operate," Laura added. "These are extremists. And you see a lot of parallels between extremists on the left and the right ... they pretty much operate the same way, exactly. And there's no difference between what Antifa is doing and the 'Brown Shirts' of Nazi Germany. Or the 'Black Shirts' of Mussolini."

She read the 10 points of action listed by an extremist group called the "Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement", which culminates with "Liberation begins where America dies."

Glenn recalled a prediction he made approximately 15 years ago, that "socialist, communists, radicals, anarchists, [and] Islamists would all work together ... they would all see the opportunity and work toward the same goal. And that's destruction of capitalism, and destruction of the Western world."

"A few years ago, I probably would not have agreed with you on that," Laura responded. "But I now see that you're absolutely correct."

The Trump-deranged media is calling the president a "coward" because he was moved to an underground bunker as riots erupted outside the White House over the weekend.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to set the record straight. He told Glenn that under Title 18, US Code 3056, the Secret Service has the authority to protect the president however they deem necessary, with or without his consent.

Dan explained that the severity of the White House riots, which resulted in at least 50 Secret Service agents being injured, would very likely have warranted overriding the president's preference on whether or not to take shelter.

"Shame on the media ... for painting this as some kind of situation where Trump ran like a coward," Dan said. "Which is totally false and made-up. [...] They're morons. These are imbeciles with double digit IQs who are only in this to aggravate an already-bad situation. And it's a shame, because they're really incentivizing this kind of stuff to happen."

He also made it clear that the so-called protests over the death of George Floyd were actually "very strategic" riots organized by "Antifa terrorists."

"It was not even a protest. It should have been, and could have been ... but that's not what it was. It was an insurrection. It was a riot," Dan stated.

"I can tell you, from sources of mine that were there, [who are] more than credible and unimpeachable, that the attack at the White House -- and that's what it was over a period of days -- was very organized. It was done using very strategic tactics," he added. "I want to be crystal clear, this was organized by Antifa terrorists. It's not a joke. It's not hyperbole. These were people that were committed to an insurrection that was thankfully put down."

The media has been trying to discredit BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer after he recorded a disturbing video of a man being brutally beaten and stoned almost to death by rioters Saturday evening in Dallas.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to set the record straight.

"The very dishonest far-left media is working tirelessly at the moment to completely, not only discredit myself, but they always say, 'Elijah Schaffer who works for Glenn Beck's BlazeTV.' As if that's an insult. So I'm going to clear the air right now," he told Glenn.

"There was a group of about, I would say 150 rioters. They were not protesters. They were breaking windows. They broke into a bank. They broke into a bar. They were looting alcohol and partying on the streets while breaking glass. These were not people who were grieving over black lives," he added. "The police had lost control of the city."

Elijah went on to describe the violent scene, detailing the events leading up to the brutal beating of a man who was apparently trying to defend a local bar. Elijah posted a video of the incident on Twitter Saturday night.

*Warning: graphic content*

"Rioters with rocks and bricks and bats and weapons, 150 or more, were accosting him as he stood in front of the bar," Elijah said. "Then they started stoning him, Glenn! Medieval! Throwing rocks and bricks.... We're in America. This is 2020. We do not stone people in the United States of America!"

A new Pew Research Center report shows the death toll in the United States from COVID-19 is "heavily concentrated" in Democratic congressional districts.

According to the analysis, more than half of all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. occurred in just 44 (approximately 10 percent of) congressional districts, and 41 of those 44 hardest-hit districts are represented by Democrats, while only three are represented by Republicans.

"A new Pew Research Center analysis of data on official reports of COVID-19 deaths, collected by the John Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering, finds that, as of last week, nearly a quarter of all the deaths in the United States attributed to the coronavirus have been in just 12 congressional districts – all located in New York City and represented by Democrats in Congress. Of the more than 92,000 Americans who had died of COVID-19 as of May 20 (the date that the data in this analysis was collected), nearly 75,000 were in Democratic congressional districts," Pew reported.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere argued that, while the coronavirus should never have been made into a partisan issue, the study certainly makes a strong statement in favor of GOP leadership.
