SHOCKING NEWS ALERT: Liberal Media Distorts Glenn's Words on Scalia

Someone alert the media because the media have distorted Glenn's words! On second thought, no sense in alerting the already senseless.

In what can only be called the shoddiest of journalism, liberal blogs and the mainstream liberal media have once again twisted and distorted Glenn's words. This time about the passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and what it means for the country.

Here are just a few of the headlines spewed by liberal blogs and later picked up by the mainstream liberal media:

Glenn Beck: God had to kill Antonin Scalia to help put Ted Cruz in the White House

Literal Holy Crap: Glenn Beck Says Scalia’s Death Part of God’s Plan to Elect Ted Cruz

Glenn Beck: God Allowed Scalia to Die to Wake Up Americans to Vote for Cruz

Surely, these reporters fact-checked their source before attributing their outrageous headlines directly to Glenn, right? Wrong, absolutely not. Had they done their homework or cared about reporting with integrity, they would not have written malicious headlines or left out this rather essential quote from Glenn referencing Scalia's passing:

"I don't want to assume that I know His plan." —Glenn Beck, Tuesday on The Glenn Beck Program

But really, what more can we expect from liberal bloggers and a corrupt mainstream media that could care less about the truth? (A special shout out to CNN for using the kooky Right Wing Watch as their source. That's some stellar journalism, CNN.)

Context matters, MSM and other liberal news outlets, so here it is:

Tuesday on The Glenn Beck Program, Pat and Stu filled in for Glenn who was in Boston. Pat wondered on air about God's plan in Justice Scalia passing now at this critical time. (FYI, liberal media, the faithful do believe in divine providence and that God has a plan in our lives . . . crazy talk, we know). Glenn called in and offered his thoughts, answering Pat's question:

“I don't want to assume that I know His plan, but I will tell you this. I thought when this happened . . . 'You're welcome, I just woke the American people up. I took them out of the game show moment and woke enough of them up to say, Look how close your liberty is to being lost. You now have lost your liberty. You replace one guy, and you now have a 5-4 decision in the other direction.' Glenn continued, “The Constitution is hanging by a thread. That thread has just been cut. And the only way that we survive now is if we have a true constitutionalist [as president].”

Glenn did not channel the voice of God (listen to the actual audio below and make up your own mind). Nor did he proclaim the passing of a faithful and honest public servant was the handy work of God in order to elect a specific president. (That really would have been news.) Rather, he followed another common Christian principle that with tragedy comes opportunity, and that opportunity is a gift (translation liberal media: making lemonade out of lemons).

Both Glenn and Stu took to social media (without guidance from God) to respond to these distorted headlines and claims.

As I am driving to the airport to come home I check the news.

Apparently the MSM is reporting that I said "God killed Scalia to help Ted Cruz."

Outrageous.

What I did say is "perhaps God allowed Scalia to die at this time to wake America up to how close we are to the loss of our freedom".

I happen to believe in divine providence. Americans historically have. Maybe you do not. That is your choice and I do not mock you for not. Why mock me for believing in a traditional view of God?

Maybe He did, maybe He didn't. Are we awake to our sorry state? I am not sure. If the freedom that we are about to lose belongs to God for future generations, it would only make sense that He would try to wake us. No?

He gives us free choice. Who He wants as president I do not know. What path He wants America to take to best preserve His rights and roles for us, I do not know.

The event is in the hand of God. No matter how the press wants to twist my words or meaning, I stand by we need to be awakened.

Yet another wonderful story floating around about Glenn Beck:

Here are some of the headlines.

---

Glenn Beck: God had to kill Antonin Scalia to help put Ted Cruz in the White House

Literal Holy Crap: Glenn Beck Says Scalia’s Death Part of God’s Plan to Elect Ted Cruz

Glenn Beck: God Allowed Scalia to Die to Wake Up Americans to Vote for Cruz

----

What's missing from all these headlines?? That's right! Quotes!

You see, Glenn didn't actually say any of the things in these headlines. He didn't say "God had to kill Antonin Scalia" for Ted Cruz. He didn't say Scalia's death was part of "God's plan to elect Ted Cruz." He didn't say God was helping "put Cruz in the White House" by killing Scalia.

In fact, in all of these stories about how Glenn Beck thinks he knows God's plan, guess what phrase was magically left out of each and every one of the transcripts?

BECK: "I don't want to assume that I know his plan"

Surely, that was just a mistake to leave that line out. Right?

Glenn can speak for himself when he comes back on Friday, but what I took from his point was something he has discussed many times.

With tragedy, comes an opportunity to refocus. That opportunity is a gift.

When a family member passes away, perhaps you refocus on connecting with your family. That doesn't mean that God murdered your brother to help the long distance phone company. Only a complete moron would take it that way.

More famously, Glenn started the 9/12 project. With the tragedy of 9/11, came the opportunity of 9/12 - a chance to refocus on what is really important. Faith. Hope. Love. Charity. That doesn't mean God killed 3,000 people so that firemen would have their boots filled with spare change. Only a complete moron would take it that way. See a pattern here?

With Scalia--sure-- we can all mourn a great man passing away. And we should. But, what did that great man care about? What did he stand for?

Glenn's belief that we should try to focus on what is important following a tragedy is something that he has tried to communicate his whole career. In this example, what was important to Scalia is what is important to the country. The constitution.

Whoever you believe would most honor the constitution is the person you should vote for. Obviously, to Glenn, that person is Ted Cruz.

Perhaps, if we all spent a little time trying to figure out who would most closely guard the constitution if elected, we could truly honor the life of Antonin Scalia.

Glenn has chimed in on his facebook page, calling the accusations "outrageous."

Outrageous, indeed. The days of the media being a watchdog for truth have long passed.

 

Listen to Glenn's exact words and the full conversation beginning at mark 15:00:

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."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?
