Megyn Kelly Wants to EXPOSE Alex Jones, Not Legitimize Him

Megyn Kelly's upcoming interview with Infowars host Alex Jones has caused a firestorm this week, complete with sponsors pulling ads, the media crying foul and now Kelly being disinvited to host a charity event. Kelly was scheduled to emcee Sandy Hook Promise’s annual Promise Champions Gala on June 14.

When did journalists doing their actual job become controversial?

"As far as I know, Megyn Kelly has been the only one that has really pushed him on this. Everybody else has done profiles, but they have not pushed him on this. She pushed him on this," Glenn said on radio Tuesday.

Kelly issued a statement following the news she'd been disinvited from the gala:

I understand and respect the decision of the event organizers but I’m of course disappointed that I won’t be there to support them on Wednesday night. I find Alex Jones’s suggestion that Sandy Hook was ‘a hoax’ as personally revolting as every other rational person does.

President Trump, by praising and citing him, appearing on his show, and giving him White House press credentials, has helped elevate Jones, to the alarm of many. Our goal in sitting down with him was to shine a light --- as journalists are supposed to do --- on this influential figure, and yes, to discuss the considerable falsehoods he has promoted with near impunity.

"I don't have White House press credentials. He does. He does. Shouldn't that guy be examined?" Glenn asked.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Bill O'Reilly is going to be joining us at the top of the hour. We also have some commentary on -- on this Megyn Kelly stuff with Alex Jones. She has just been disinvited to be the host of a Sandy Hook charity gala.

JEFFY: What!

GLENN: That's supposed to happen next Wednesday because she was exposing -- now, listen to the logic of this. Because she's exposing the guy -- just like the New York Times has, just like New York magazine has, just like we have, exposing Alex Jones to be the lunatic that he is, that says he's -- he's, by the way, asking for this, not to play on NBC, because he said he was taken out of context on Sandy Hook. I want to play the context of what he said on Sandy Hook. Here it is.

ALEX: They have staged events before. But then you learn the school had been closed and reopened. And you got video of the kids going in circles, in and out of the building. And they don't call the rescue choppers for two hours. Then they tear the building down and seal it. And they get caught using blue screens. And an email by Bloomberg comes out in the lawsuit, where he's telling people get ready in the next 24 hours to capitalize on a shooting. Yeah, so Sandy Hook is a synthetic, completely fake, with actors --

GLENN: I haven't seen that.

Okay. Stop. As far as I know, Megyn Kelly has been the only one that has really pushed him on this. Everybody else has done profiles. But they have not pushed him on this. She pushed him on this. So far, a sponsor has asked to be moved off the show. For what? For TIME Magazine putting Adolf Hitler on the cover and saying he was the man of the year in 1938 -- yes, he was the man of the year in 1938.

To be able to have a logical, rational discussion with the irrational is important. Not when he's a nobody. But when the president of the United States has given him press credentials and made him into a legitimate guy.

I don't have White House press credentials. He does. He does. Shouldn't that guy be examined?

STU: I mean, this exact show with this exact host, two weeks ago, interviewed Vladimir Putin. I can't stand Alex Jones. Other than the fact that he's hilarious, I never want to hear a word from him. But he's certainly not as bad as Vladimir Putin.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Why on earth would you want to move your advertising out of this, when clearly -- and in her statement, she's --

GLENN: This is her statement, from being disinvited. We're going to get to the Russia stuff here in a second. Listen to this.

STU: I understand and respect the decision of the event organizers, but, of course, I'm disappointed that I won't be there to support them on Wednesday night. I find Alex Jones' suggestion that Sandy Hooks was a hoax as personally revolting as every other rational person does.

GLENN: She has done a lot for Sandy Hook.

STU: Yeah. It left me and many other Americans asking the very question that prompted this interview -- which is a completely reasonable question -- how does Jones, who traffics in these outrageous conspiracy theories -- have the respect of the president of the United States and a growing audience of millions? President Trump by praising and citing him, appearing on his show, and giving him White House press credentials has helped elevate Jones to the alarm of many. Our goal, in sitting down with him, was to shine a light, as journalists are supposed to do, on this influential figure and, yes, to discuss the considerable falsehoods he has promoted with near impunity.

How could you possibly pull out of an interview with a person who is taking that approach to Alex Jones? I mean, unless you're an Alex Jones fan -- I mean, is JPMorgan Chase -- are they just huge fans of Alex Jones, and they're just like, well, I don't like that they're attacking his Sandy Hook conspiracy, that we really believe. Because that's the only reason you would want to pull out of that interview.

GLENN: No, the only reason -- that's the logical reason. The emotional reason is, the families are against this interview. And nobody wants to stand against the families.

But the families -- it's the reason why we have a jury of our peers and the reason why we have a judge give the sentencing to the -- to the criminal and not the victim. In other countries, the victim gets to sentence. That's all emotional.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: There has to be a line of separation.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
