Stop the Presses! Alex Jones Issues a Retraction - Sort Of

Conspiracy theorist and unofficial Trump adviser Alex Jones did what no one thought he could --- he issued a retraction. It was actually more of a non-retraction retraction, only apologizing for naming the owner of the #PizzaGate restaurant as part of the Hillary Clinton pedophilia cabal. Monday on radio, Glenn pointed out how the conspiracy lives on in the parsing of language by Mr. Jones, while his co-hosts took a walk down the Alex Jones memory lane.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Well, there's -- there was quite a big announcement on Friday that had nothing to do with Obamacare, had a little something to do with Hillary Clinton's campaign. And that is that Pizzagate has finally been cleared up for all of those people that believed in Pizzagate, and we --

PAT: It, of course, was where Hillary Clinton was running this -- essentially a whorehouse out of a pizza house in Washington --

STU: Child whorehouse.

PAT: Yes. And then there was a series of incredibly complex tunneling underneath where they would come and go. You would see them go in, but never come out, because they went out through the tunnels.

GLENN: Yeah, of course. And, of course, if you ordered like a Hawaiian with extra cheese --

PAT: That meant --

GLENN: I don't know what it meant.

PAT: That you wanted a little Polynesian child.

GLENN: With a little extra chunk to them or something. I don't know.

PAT: I don't know.

STU: Legitimately, they had each --

GLENN: Yeah, they had the whole list. And there's a big announcement from the guy who is, you know, one of the -- one of the lead flag wavers for this.

STU: Oh, no.

ALEX: In issuing this statement, we are not admitting that Mr. Alefantis or his restaurants have any legal claim. We do not believe they do, but we are issuing this statement because we believe it's the right thing to do.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: It will be no surprise to you that we will fight for children across America.

PAT: That's no surprise at all.

ALEX: But the Pizzagate narrative, at least as concerned Mr. Alefantis at Comet Ping Pong --

PAT: At least as far as concerning him. I mean, the whole thing may be true, outside of this one guy, who is about to sue us into oblivion. But he has nothing to do with this particular thing.

STU: Right.

PAT: Everything else is true.

STU: And this is obviously Alex Jones, the ridiculous conspiracy theorist. But obviously, having a severe threat of a lawsuit, as you can tell, he's reading this hostage statement.

PAT: And this was -- this was one of the dumbest conspiracy theories ever devised.

GLENN: Well, he's never met a conspiracy that he doesn't like.

PAT: No, he sure hasn't. Everything is a conspiracy to him. He doesn't even believe in Muslim terror. That's all perpetrated by the government.

GLENN: What?

PAT: Yeah, he doesn't buy into Muslim terrorists at all.

STU: Oh, 9/11 was an inside job.

PAT: Right.

STU: That's where it all stems from.

PAT: False flags. We're blaming things on Muslims, so we can go to war with them. That's not a real thing.

GLENN: Okay. All right.

ALEX: We have subsequently determined was based upon what we now believe was an incorrect narrative.

PAT: No.

ALEX: Despite the fact that we were far from the genesis of this story, it is never easy to admit when your commentaries are based on inaccurate information.

GLENN: Okay. So wait a minute. So the guy who showed up with a gun at the pizza parlor, I'm hoping he's heard this now too.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Alex has said, oops. I guess we were listening to the wrong person.

STU: And to be clear, the guy with the gun figured it out before Alex. Because he left there, realizing there was nothing to it.

GLENN: Yeah, he went there to kill them. And then he realized, I don't think there's a tunnel system underneath --

PAT: Oh, it's just a pizza parlor. Okay.

GLENN: Yeah.

ALEX: We feel like we owe it to you the listeners, viewers and supporters, to make that statement, and to give an apology and Mr. Alefantis, when we do. We encourage you to hold us accountable because we improve when you do.

GLENN: That's really good.

STU: And this --

GLENN: Here's how -- now, I don't know how seriously he took it. Because he was wearing his shirt when he read that.


JEFFY: Yes, he was.

GLENN: And you know --

PAT: Do we have that confirmed?

GLENN: We have that confirmed. He was wearing his shirt.

JEFFY: He was prepared to take it off.

GLENN: Usually when he really means something, he rips his shirt off.

PAT: He must not have had his steak the night before and wasn't feeling the testosterone.

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah. Was it steak that makes him feel like that?

PAT: It's steak and jalapeño peppers.

STU: Also, wait a minute. What about his supplements? His supplements --

GLENN: It could be that. Or it could just be bipolar roid rage. You know, it could be --

STU: It's possible that they sold so much male vitality formula that they had none left for him. Because, I mean, that could be the problem here. This is a monumentous occasion here. The fact that he -- this is a man who said Sandy Hook didn't happen. It was obviously fake with fake actors.

GLENN: And the children were all fake.

PAT: And he denied saying that, but he's on record saying it.

GLENN: When you say record, you mean YouTube.

PAT: Yes.

STU: But, I mean, that's his record. The point is, he doesn't back down from these things. And you might say, well, hey, it's a good thing. He's finally admitting one of these things is fake. I think it's the exact opposite. The reason he said anything is because he never had any consequences to it. He's now been so mainstreamed by certain members of -- of --

GLENN: Donald Trump.

STU: Donald Trump. That he now is in the position where people care enough about what he says to get lawsuits that he has to apologize for. This is him being mainstreamed and the result of it, which is really a terrible development for our country.

GLENN: This is so -- I mean, you want to talk about conspiracy theories, this -- this pizza thing is just outrageous. And, by the way, his people say that I know about Pizzagate, and I've either been bought off or I'm a part of it.

PAT: So I wonder if they'll maybe back off that claim now.


PAT: I mean, doesn't that illegitimatize everything he said surrounding this Pizzagate nonsense?

GLENN: No, no, because he said --

PAT: At least as it applies to Mr. Cowanakis -- or whatever his name was. Whereas it applies to you, it's still enforced.

GLENN: Oh, I'm sure.

What he's saying here is, I still believe in Pizzagate, just not going through this pizza parlor. There is another one with secret tunnels.

PAT: That is unbelievable.


Americans do not want Marxist critical race theory taught in their kids' schools, a new poll has found. The poll, conducted by Competitive Edge Research and released by Parents Defending Education, found that an overwhelming 74% of respondents were "somewhat or strongly opposed" to teaching kids the CRT concept that people are automatically either oppressors or oppressed based solely on skin color. Only 6% said they support teaching those lessons in schools.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck discussed the new poll and what the results say about the majority of people in this country.

"This poll shows it's not just white Republicans," Glenn said of those who oppose critical race theory in schools.

"Only 6% of the population is for this [CRT]. Six. So, if you feel overwhelmed, and you feel you're alone, know only 6% are for this. The rest are too afraid to say anything. [...] You are not alone. You are in the majority. What are you afraid of? All that is required is for you to group together and speak out. Go and run for your school board. Get on to your city council. Do whatever you have to do to protect what's being taught in our schools," he urged.

"This is re-education. This is indoctrination of our children. And it is so destructive, the only way I can truly describe it is evil," Glenn added. "Tell me the good that comes out of teaching our children that the only way to stop discrimination is to discriminate, or the only way to stop racism is to be a racist. [...] There is a narrow sliver of the farthest left voters that view woke-education favorably. A small, 6% sliver ... however, that sliver is in charge of a lot of stuff."

The far Left has intensified its push toward Marxism for months now, but it's more than clever catchphrases or slogans. Their radical rhetoric and policies have violent consequences.

Calls to defund the police have led to officers being ambushed and killed. Crime is spiking in record amounts all over the country. Critical race theory has the government, corporations, and now schools brainwashing Americans to believe the entire system is systemically racist. And it's paved the way for actual violence in the streets from groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa.

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck exposes their endgame: tearing the entire system down. Marxists did this in the Soviet Union and China, among other places. Millions died, and the first to feel the brunt were always the landowners and farmers. The most recent example of this is happening in South Africa, where Glenn reveals terrifying on-the-ground interviews.

As American farmers now also face unprecedented racial discrimination by our federal government, award-winning South African journalist Lara Logan warns of what could happen if the seeds of Marxism aren't uprooted now.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."
