Chris Matthews May Need a Mojito for the GOP Debate in Iowa

The Context

Following the news that Donald Trump dropped out of the GOP debate in Iowa --- that mean ol' Megyn Kelly asks tough questions --- Chris Matthews of MSNBC's Hardball said this: "Who is going to watch a debate between two Cubans?"

Liberals Love Labels

Nice work, Chris Matthews. Archie Bunker would be proud. Why is it that conservatives are labeled racists and bigots, but liberals are the ones who put everyone into a category? Who sees people through the filter of color? Liberals do, that's who.

Déjà Vu

Remember when Chris Matthews forgot Barack Obama was black? That was so big of him, wasn't it? It was the 2010 State of the Union, and Matthews got so caught up in the president's speech he became color blind.

"'All of a sudden, I'm listening to him and I'm like, he's so smart. He's like white.' That is what he's saying," Glenn mimicked Wednesday on The Glenn Beck Program. "'I forgot he's so much like me, he could be white. I almost said, he should join our country club. And then I realized he's black. And then I'm like, hey, dude, you can't come in. You can park my car, but you can't come in.'"

You're Only an Ethnic Group If It Fits the Liberal Agenda

On Saturday Glenn endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz for President of the United States. He used very specific words because the liberal media won't use them --- they just don't fit the agenda.

"You know why everyone played my endorsement --- and I said it this way so they had to admit that he was Hispanic --- I said, 'That's why I'm endorsing Ted Cruz to be the first Hispanic-American president.' Because nobody says that."

Common Sense Bottom Line

Chris Matthews' statement was a true racist statement. Ted Cruz would be the first Hispanic-American president. But don't hold your breath for the media to report either.

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

GLENN: Did you see that Chris Matthews said, "Who is going to watch a debate between two Cubans?"

STU: Wow.

GLENN: Is that -- I mean, is there any way to read other than as a real true racist statement.

PAT: Racist. I don't think so.

GLENN: That is a true racist statement.

STU: Yeah. Because he's a guy too, we've always questioned, "Why are you seeing this 4 percent tax cut as a racial issue?"

GLENN: Because he sees everything as a racist -- which usually means you're self-diagnosing.

STU: Everything. Yeah.

PAT: Did anybody else think of the remaining guys as two Cubans? First of all, there's a lot of white guys there.

GLENN: No, they never say that. Nobody ever refers to them --

PAT: Never.

GLENN: You know why everyone played my endorsement -- and I said it this way so they had to admit that he was Hispanic. I said, "That's why I'm endorsing Ted Cruz to be the first Hispanic-American president." Because nobody says that.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And I wanted to make sure that we just slipped that in there.

STU: Yeah, that's smart.

GLENN: Let's just slip that in there.

STU: I did see it in multiple news reports too. That's interesting.

GLENN: And they cut everything else off. Because I said three different things about after that. But I put "Hispanic president" first because just a little salt in the wound at the left just a little. Oh, we can play that game too all day long.

STU: It worked too. That's funny.

GLENN: Yeah, you know, it's truly amazing that none of them will talk about that, but the minute you actually have to -- now that Trump is out. That vacuum of Trump. Now you see them reveal their true colors. Who wants to listen to a couple of -- who wants to listen to a couple of Cubans?

PAT: That's crazy.

GLENN: That is crazy. Crazy racist. Crazy racist.

STU: Do you think there's anything to that other theory?

GLENN: What other theory?

STU: I guess where people have been talking about, the theory is that he had some incident in his past, which he potentially maybe like ran over a minority and is now spending the rest of his life playing penance HEP for this because he made a promise as he was driving away? If I can just get through this --

PAT: I'll make everything a racial issue.

STU: Everything. I don't know.

GLENN: What kind of --

JEFFY: Well, that theory was put forth on one of the shows on this network.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: The Pat & Stu Show?

(chuckling)

STU: The bottom line is I got a call in my office by someone who said that was true. I don't know. It's out there. He needs to answer it.

GLENN: Okay. I got it. I got it.

PAT: Well, we should have known when he said this.

CHRIS: You know, I forgot he was black tonight for an hour.

STU: I mean, seriously.

PAT: So the rest of the time you think about that the whole time. This guy is black.

STU: He's black. He's still black. Black.

PAT: It's a black guy.

GLENN: But all of a sudden, I'm listening to him and I'm like, "He's so smart. He's like white."

STU: Right. That's kind of what he said.

GLENN: That is what he's saying. I forgot he's so much like me, he could be white. I almost -- I almost said, he should join our country club. And then I realized he's black. And then I'm like, hey, dude, you can't come in. You can park my car, but you can't come in.

STU: This is what it sounds like.

JEFFY: Yes, it does.

STU: I don't know if he just overthinks this stuff, but he's constantly putting every issue into those racial terms, so it is a little revealing yet again on that one.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
