DNC: The Night of a Thousand Victims

Covering night one of the 2016 Democratic National Convention (DNC), Glenn gave not one, but two perspectives.

"I watched this last night as me, a guy who knows what progressives are, knows what is going on in the news, knows all of the stuff about the emails, knows everything that's happening on the streets outside," Glenn said.

And the other persona that showed up?

"I also tried to watch it as just someone who is the average American . . . worried about their job, worried about terrorism. You know, watching Donald Trump, seeing a little bit of that last week, maybe watching his speech, but not really following things," Glenn said.

Overall, Glenn thought it one of the best convention nights Democrats have ever held --- the stage, the production, the politics.

"Watching it as me, the author of the new book Liars: How Progressives Exploit Our Fear for Power and Control, last night was a full-fledged exhibit on how it works. Truly remarkable," Glenn said.

Here's what Glenn's two personas had to say:

The Real Glenn Beck Review

It was the night of a thousand victims, everybody who had a problem with anything. Take Cory Booker for instance, the Democratic senator from New Jersey.

"If I had to hear him talk about the Founders for one more second, I think my head would explode. How, you know, blacks were only a percentage of a person. Obviously, Cory, you need to read Frederick Douglass. Are you more oppressed than Frederick Douglass was?" Glenn asked rhetorically.

Frederick Douglass once felt the same way Cory Booker does now, that the Founders were racist and the Constitution is a racist, flawed document. But then Douglass educated himself, reading the Constitution to find out what the Founders meant by the three-fifths clause and how it was a step toward ending slavery. Douglass became a huge supporter of the Constitution. In fact, his debate on the Constitution, if read, would change Cory Booker forever.

"Do you think you're more of a victim than Booker T. Washington? Have you read Up From Slavery? And if you haven't, you should. And if you have, maybe you should read it again," Glenn said.

So it was a night of a thousand victims, with Elizabeth Warren talking about how everyone is a victim of the disunity coming from the Republican Party, which is separating us into groups.

"Whites and blacks don't get along because the Republicans are separating the whites from the blacks and telling us to make sure you notice the differences," Glenn said.

In reality, it's not Republicans doing the separating and pointing out perceived differences. It's Democrats and particularly the Democrat-in-Chief, President Barack Obama, who should take credit for pitting "groups" against each other.

Yes, the progressive machine was on full throttle night one of the DNC, and it was absolutely brilliant.

"It was a spectacle. It was beautiful. It looked successful," Glenn said. "They had all the stars there. All the big singers were there. It was produced really well. J.J. Abrams made some of the films in between. It was done really well."

The videos between speakers emotionally connected with the audience, bringing some to tears.

"It wasn't the speeches that were effective and important last night. It was the things they put between the speeches because it was a night of a thousand victims of Donald Trump. And they were extraordinarily effective, to the point to where if I were somebody who wasn't following politics, there is no way I would not only not vote for Donald Trump; there is no way I would ever even consider voting for a Republican, ever."

The Average Joe Glenn Beck Review

One of the first videos featured was an 11-year-old illegal alien, sitting in a crowd with Hillary Clinton at a school. When the girl started to cry, she said, "I'm just afraid my mom and dad will be taken away from me in the middle of the night." Hillary responded, "Come here," held her and said, "I don't want you to worry about that anymore. I'm going to worry about that for you. You don't worry about that. Your mom and dad are great, and I'm going to work hard to make sure that nobody ever comes for you or your family."

"Honestly, everyone in the video and the crowd, crying. You know how I feel about Hillary Clinton, but it made me look at her and go, 'Wow, she's kind of a nice person.' No, she's not. No, she's not. I just talked to a big Democrat yesterday who said, 'I have been in the room with her many times, and she is the hardest woman I have ever met,'" Glenn said.

So Hillary was made a very sympathetic figure last night.

What Would 20-year-old Hillary Clinton Say to 68-year-old Hillary Clinton?

"I disagree with everything that just happened on stage, but my heart is moved. That's how progressives do it, when they do it well. Progressives on the right appeal to your head and your anger, your fear and your anger. Progressives on the left play into your fear with compassion," Glenn said.

The featured videos did a very effective job of connecting emotionally. So did Michelle Obama.

"I think it was Michelle Obama that said, "We're role models, and our kids are watching television. Who do you want to be the person on television for the next four years telling your children how to behave, giving the example of how your children should behave?" Extraordinarily effective. If you're watching it as a mom, if you're watching it with either somebody who agrees with the progressive nonsense or just doesn't understand what the truth is or what's going on," Glenn said.

Another moving moment featured a young, intelligent woman in a wheelchair, speaking as if Donald Trump had mocked her. Without playing the victim she eloquently and beautifully said how sorry she is for Donald Trump, that she can't imagine anyone living with that much hatred in their heart.

"Now, I'm a father of a daughter with cerebral palsy, who has done remarkable things, so I'm maybe a little more sensitive to this, but I don't think so. If I watched this as a typical mom, and, again, especially a typical mom who doesn't understand the progressive history of eugenics and also what Obamacare is doing to people who have disabilities, I wouldn't have voted for anybody else," Glenn said.

In fact, the moment was more about Republicans than Donald Trump.

"It wouldn't have been about Donald Trump at that point; it would have been about every single Republican: 'You people are disgusting. You're standing with that. You're cheering for that. You're fighting for that.' Devastating and deadly," Glenn said.

Where the progressive left has mastered connecting emotionally, the progressive right --- or Republicans in general, for that matter --- have failed.

"We say we don't need Hollywood. We don't need movies. We don't need television. We don't need art. Yes, we do. Yes, we do. And this is why. Because you must capture the heart," Glenn said.

The featured video segments made such an emotional impact, they lessened the divisive comments made by speakers.

"You listen to the speeches from the politicians, and they were like divide, divide, divide. He's rich. He's white. He's this. He's that. It was all division. The politicians were dividing, but you're not hearing their words because your heart has been moved so much," Glenn said. "It's deadly. It's a deadly combination."

Shortly after appearing on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" last Thursday, Los Angeles-based emergency medicine specialist Dr. Simone Gold got a call saying she was fired for speaking out about the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in a now-banned viral video.

Dr. Gold returned to the radio program Monday to detail exactly what happened, the reason the hospitals gave for her firing, and how they threatened to fire her colleagues as well if she "didn't go quietly."

"Most emergency physicians work at more than one [hospital], as I do, and I've actually been fired from both," she told Glenn. "They told me that I appeared in an embarrassing video, and therefore, I would no longer be welcome to work there ... then they said, if I didn't go quietly and I made a fuss, they would have all the doctors in the group, you know, they'd have to go and they'll get a whole new doctor group."

Dr. Gold said she does not regret speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during the controversial "White Coat Summit" news conference held in Washington, D.C., last week. A video of the news conference quickly went viral on social media before being removed by Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and others for allegedly making false claims related to COVID-19.

"Bring it on," she said. "I want to continue to live in America. I want my children to continue to live in America. I don't want them to grow up in a place like China. When you get to a point where, not only can I not speak as a scientist, as a doctor, for what I know to be absolutely true, but you then want to cancel me and my colleagues, this is not okay. I would much rather fight than not fight ... and I want everybody to know that there are literally millions and millions of Americans who are on our side. Millions. I believe it's the majority."

Glenn then asked Dr. Gold to weigh in on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's new guidelines encouraging schools to reopen in the fall and the left's relentless drive to keep them closed.

"There's no actual scientific debate whatsoever if schools should open. None. There's no scientific debate. There's no serious person who thinks schools shouldn't open. Now, [through] some governors and policy makers, there's pressure being brought to bear on school districts, but there's no actual scientific debate. So it's going to come down to parents pressuring their local school districts to act in a responsible fashion."

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld joined Glenn on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to talk about his new book, "The Plus: Self-Help for People Who Hate Self-Help."

Greg admits he is probably the last person who should write a self-help book. Nevertheless, he offers his offbeat advice on how to save America during what has become one of the most tumultuous times in history, as well as drinking while tweeting (spoiler: don't do it).

He also shares his "evolution" on President Donald Trump, his prediction for the election, and what it means to be an agnostic-atheist.

In this clip, Greg shares what he calls his "first great epiphany" on how dangerous cancel culture has become.

"I believe that cancel culture is the first successful work-around of the First Amendment," he said. "Because freedom of speech doesn't protect me from my career being ruined, my livelihood being destroyed, or me getting so depressed I commit suicide. Cancel culture is the first successful work-around of freedom of speech. It can oppress your speech with the scepter of destruction. We don't have freedom of speech anymore."

Dr. Simone Gold joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to set the record straight about hydroxychloroquine -- what it is, how it works, and the real reason for all the current controversy surrounding a centuries-old medication.

Dr. Gold is a board certified emergency physician. She graduated from Chicago Medical School before attending Stanford University Law School. She completed her residency in emergency medicine at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York, and worked in Washington D.C. for the Surgeon General, as well for the chairman of the Committee on Labor and Human Resources. She works as an emergency physician on the front lines, whether or not there is a pandemic, and her clinical work serves all Americans from urban inner city to suburban and the Native American population. Her legal practice focuses on policy issues relating to law and medicine.

She is also the founder of America's frontline doctors, a group of doctors who have been under attack this week for speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during a news conference held outside the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

On the program, Dr. Gold emphasized that the controversy over hydroxychloroquine is a "complete myth."

"Hydroxychloroquine is an analogue or a derivative of quinine, which is found in tree bark. It's the most noncontroversial of medications that there is," she explained.

"It's been around for centuries and it's been FDA-approved in the modern version, called hydroxychloroquine, for 65 years. In all of that time, [doctors] used it for breast-feeding women, pregnant women, elderly, children, and immune compromised. The typical use is for years or even decades because we give it mostly to RA, rheumatoid arthritis patients and lupus patients who need to be on it, essentially, all of their life. So, we have extensive experience with it ... it's one of the most commonly used medications throughout the world."

Dr. Gold told Glenn she was surprised when the media suddenly "vomited all over hydroxychloroquine", but initially chalked it up to the left's predictable hatred for anything President Donald Trump endorses. However, when the media gave the drug Remdesivir glowing reviews, despite disappointing clinical trial results, she decided to do some research.

"[Remdesivir] certainly wasn't a fabulous drug, but the media coverage was all about how fabulous it was. At that moment, I thought that was really weird. Because it's one thing to hate hydroxychloroquine because the president [endorsed] it. But it's another thing to give a free pass to another medicine that doesn't seem that great. I thought that was really weird, so I started looking into it. And let me tell you, what I discovered was absolutely shocking," she said.

According to the mainstream media's COVID-19 narrative, the president is "ignoring" the crisis.

On tonight's "Glenn TV" special, Glenn Beck exposes the media's last four months of political theater that has helped shape America's confusion and fear over coronavirus. And now, with a new school year looming on the horizon, the ongoing hysteria has enormous ramifications for our children, but the media is working overtime to paint the Trump administration as anti-science Neanderthals who want to send children and teachers off to die by reopening schools.

Glenn fights back with the facts and interviews the medical doctor Big Tech fears the most. Dr. Simone Gold, founder of America's Frontline Doctors, stands up to the media's smear campaign and explains why she could no longer stay silent in her fight against coronavirus fear.
