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.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
