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.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."
