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.

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.

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.
