Glenn Beck: Leftist host leaves Dems live on air


WGAN Morning News with Ken & Mike

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. So Ken actually, his daughter, Amy, works for me in New York. She's at CNN, and she is absolutely fantastic. I just absolutely love her to death. She is a keeper. I think she was a pivot point quite honestly on the television program, but I just love her to death. You know, she's a Clinton supporter. She has explained your position in life as a socialist, Ken.

ALTSHULER: She compliments me too much.

GLENN: I know. But you and I were having an interesting conversation today because I couldn't believe this. You are a guy who, you really are, you know, you believe in the socialized world and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. You are not for Barack Obama, and we actually agree on why. Will you explain it?

ALTSHULER: I will. Not only am I not for him, I will not vote for him. And I won't vote for him and I won't support him because number one, I don't know who he is. He is absolutely

GLENN: What do you mean by that?

ALTSHULER: He is an unknown quantity. He has done very little votes, he has stood for very little positions. He talks in platitudes. He talked in hope and change without substance. So we don't know who he is. In addition to that, we do know some things about who he surrounds himself with. There's a reverend named Reverend Wright who is a racist. This is his spiritual advisor. He has a wife who by my point of view is militant, is angry. And I believe the people running his campaign who will run the government if he's elected have a hidden agenda. I'm not sure what it is but I don't think I like it.

GLENN: Okay, hang on just a second. Why do you say his because when you said that, my mouth was on the floor today. We're on the air together today and you say that and I thought, my gosh, Ken, you've got to check yourself into a hospital right away because we agree. I think his wife is frightening. She is really, truly a militant in my point of view. Why do you say that?

ALTSHULER: Well, let's look at what we know about her. She started out talking about such things as this is the first time I'm proud to be an American. That is classic frankly militant African American jargon for saying finally we are getting our day in court, we're getting our day in the spotlight.

GLENN: So wait a minute. Hang on just a second. I just assumed that because you were a liberal, you weren't a racist, but now I understand you're a racist.

ALTSHULER: Oh, that's right. I'm not supposed to criticize any African American. I apologize. How could I be see, and that is the classic. The minute you criticize this man, you are a racist. There's no valid criticism and that's why I am going to tell you if it be President Barack Obama come November 4th.

GLENN: You do believe he is going to win?

ALTSHULER: I believe that John McCain doesn't have a chance because wait, now sit down for this one, Mr. Beck. The liberal media bias will coast him into office because

GLENN: Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on. Just hang on. Will somebody please check for pods. Ken is missing. Wait a minute. You, you know, Sam the socialist is telling me it's the liberal media bias that is going to get Barack Obama elected?

ALTSHULER: The media decided the minute he ran that he was the next President, and they have actively campaigned for him since day one. They absolutely destroyed any chance Hillary Clinton had. She helped herself a little bit. They destroyed the campaign, they will do the same thing with John McCain and you can have all the Karl Roves you want, but you can't touch that man.

GLENN: So Ken, how do you how do you put this together in your head? How do you look at this because your world, this is the world that I expected, the liberal media bias, I expected this. I expected the political correctness. I expected radicals. I mean, I've been saying this for years. Democrats, you've got to wake up because you have absolute radicals in your ranks. When you're dealing with people like Michael Moore and you are putting them in a presidential box at the convention with the other radical Jimmy Carter. When you are putting these two people together, the enemy is with inside the gates and they have destroyed the Democratic party. So I expected this. Did you?

ALTSHULER: I did not and I must say there were hints of it as early as George McGovern in 1972. I actually thought that the Democratic party at some point could become a cohesive unit. Mr. Beck, I am prepared on the show to withdraw from the Democratic party and become an independent because I cannot belong to a party that can't think independently and choose somebody who can lead our country instead of going with this hope and change without any substance.

GLENN: Okay. Go ahead. Let's go ahead. Because in Maine, in Portland, Ken withdrawing from the Democratic party? Go ahead, go ahead.

ALTSHULER: Remember, most good Democrats, and there are some out there, we are willows, Mr. Beck. We can bend. We are flexible. We go issue by issue, and there are some issues I agree with, the mainstream

GLENN: This doesn't sound like you are officially withdrawing from the Democratic party.

ALTSHULER: I am officially withdrawing because this party no longer represents me. They have drank the Kool Aid, they are going with what the media tells them will make them feel comfortable. They are feeling they are drinking the Kool Aid of white guilt, which is what's propelling Barack Obama into the presidency. I can't drink that Kool Aid.

GLENN: Now, how much of this is just you're pissed off because your candidate didn't win?

ALTSHULER: You know, Hillary

GLENN: Oh, wow, listen to that.

ALTSHULER: Hillary, Hillary lost the election for a number of reasons. Number one, it was the worst run campaign in the history of American politics. Nobody accounted for the fact that all of a sudden the people were going to hate Bill Clinton. Also, the strategy of going to the big state, ignoring the caucuses, having no campaign strategy, this was a failed strategy. She deserves to lose. However, that being said I could still get behind a candidate who is an independent thinker, who will decide issue by issue and then look at a comprehensive picture of American politics. Barack Obama, I must tell you, may be that man. I just don't know that. He needs to have a proven track record.

GLENN: Is there anything that he could say before the election that would that would make you go, you know what, I'm going to go for Barack Obama?

ALTSHULER: Yes. He could say I've decided I'm not experienced enough; I'm going to stay in the Senate for six more years and then I'll run again and then you'll know who I am and then you can vote for me.

ALTSHULER: All right. That's not going to happen.

ALTSHULER: I know it's not going to happen.

GLENN: It's just like a liberal to come up with some plan like that. By the way, you're in usual company here. Katie Couric said, "However you feel about Hillary Clinton's politics, I feel that Senator Clinton received some of the most unfair, hostile coverage I've ever seen."

ALTSHULER: There's no doubt that that's true and I don't know if it's because she's Hillary Clinton and I must tell you I think there was some gender bias involved as well, but I think Hillary, Hillary self destructed and I think there's nobody to blame but herself.

GLENN: Ken, look. This came as a surprise to you guys. Can you talk to somebody here? As a guy who this didn't come as a surprise to that the media is like this, may I explain it to you?

ALTSHULER: Please.

GLENN: Here's what happened. There's no gender bias here. The people in the media are so uber left, they pick their candidate and then it doesn't matter what the truth is. It doesn't matter who the person is running. It doesn't matter. They will throw anybody under the bus. They will do whatever they have to do to get their guy elected. That's the way it is. So it doesn't matter that it was Hillary Clinton. Doesn't matter. Could have been a guy.

Look what they did to Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney, all of a sudden his religion was such a big deal. Why was it such a big deal? How come Mike Huckabee's religion wasn't a big deal? How come the religion of Barack Obama is not such a big deal? They did it because they knew that Mitt Romney had to be taken out. They wanted John McCain.

ALTSHULER: Glenn, I can't believe this. For the second time today you are 100% correct.

GLENN: This is you know what? Prepare yourself for the end of the world. It is coming.

ALTSHULER: Now, the other thing you haven't asked me is since I'm not going to vote for Barack Obama, who am I going to vote for?

GLENN: I don't know if I

ALTSHULER: I am considering, I am considering of writing in the name of Mr. Unelectable Glenn Beck.

GLENN: Yeah, well, there you go, see? There you go. You know what? I think you'll actually like tonight's show.

ALTSHULER: I'm going to love tonight's show. I must tell you I have heard the ravest reviews. I hear it's the funniest show on Earth. I can't wait to watch it.

GLENN: Your brother, where did your brother go to see the show?

ALTSHULER: Oklahoma City. He was in the front row. Now, I must tell you he is a little on the conservative side. So I excuse that part of him. But he said your show was outstanding. But I expect nothing less of you.

GLENN: What?

ALTSHULER: I expect nothing less of Mr. Glenn Beck.

GLENN: Well, I don't know how your daughter became right thinking, but

ALTSHULER: I taught her well.

GLENN: I mean, she is not right thinking but she's at least normal.

ALTSHULER: She's left thinking.

GLENN: She's left thinking but she's not like you. Yeah, and what I'm trying to do, honestly I'm just deprogramming liberals one at a time. So as soon as I get her over to the bright side and away from the dark side, then she can move on to another and I'll bring in another liberal and we'll deprogram them, too.

ALTSHULER: Glenn, whatever you say, I offset.

GLENN: Thanks a lot, Ken. That's Ken from the morning show. Mike and Ken here on WGAN.

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.
