Glenn Beck: Another crazy cartoon


Stu Blog: Outrage at New Yorker Cover

GLENN: In a story I haven't talked about, but this occurred to me when the story first broke but I'm like, this isn't really a story. Now it is. Now it is. You know the Muslim cartoon thing with Barack Obama on the cover of the New Yorker dressed as a Muslim and his wife as a militant? Okay. It's a political cartoon. I don't think this is a story. It's a stupid political cartoon. If anybody wants to be pissed off about it, it should be the conservatives. Who's saying that he's a Muslim? Who's saying that? Okay, stupid bloggers. If you're so dumb that you're getting all of your news from the e-mails, you're the same people who are buying your Viagra over the Internet as well. I mean, oh, and quick, make sure you fund those Nigerians. What's wrong with you? So I haven't even brought it up, until I heard Obama's response. "This cartoon is an insult to all Muslims." Is it just me? Because that kind of reminds me of something else I heard this man say before -- I've heard this phrase from somebody else before. I'm trying to remember. Hey, Stu, can you remember anybody saying "This political cartoon is an insult to all Muslims?"

STU: Political cartoon?

GLENN: Political cartoon is an insult -- I heard it from somewhere. I didn't expect to hear it from the guy who's possibly going to be the next President of the United States but I know I heard it some place.

STU: See, I think you might be misremembering because what, what person is going to get that fired up about a political cartoon.

GLENN: Right. And be insulted.

STU: To inflame a race or an entire religion?

GLENN: Religion, yeah.

STU: I mean, that's not --

GLENN: That's crazy talk. That's got to be something I just made up in my -- ahh. Is nobody noticing the next possible President of the United States said a political cartoon is an insult to all Muslims.

STU: You don't think they'll react? You don't think there's a possibility --

GLENN: I don't know. I just, some days I just want to take the sleeping pills and just go sleepy sleep. You know, some days don't you just go, I can't believe it.

STU: What could possibly happen, though, if a political cartoon inflames all Muslims in the Middle East?

GLENN: Nothing.

STU: There's nothing that could --


STU: What's the worst --

GLENN: What's the worst.

STU: -- that could happen other than what we've seen happen last time it happened?

GLENN: I don't know.

STU: What could possibly go on?

GLENN: That's crazy. You have to laugh. You have to laugh or you turn into me and you go insane.

STU: What happened? Aren't all the good comedians from the left? What happened to these people's sense of humor. It's an insult to the right. That is a cartoon that is insulting us evil conservatives because as you know, Glenn, we're constantly calling Barack Obama a terrorist.

GLENN: He's a Muslim terrorist, you know.

STU: But it's like, why can't you relax and just -- it's a stupid cartoon in a magazine. Did you even know it existed anywhere?

GLENN: I'm not having this conversation anymore about a political cartoon. I was screaming at Fox News this morning driving in, screaming at Fox News. I'm listening to it and I'm like, you're on Day 3 of this story? It's not a story! It's an ad campaign for the New Yorker! Since when did anyone put any stock into cartoons from the New Yorker! Isn't it the New Yorker that we've all been looking at for years and years and going, I don't get it; I don't even know what that means. Isn't that the magazine?

STU: Yeah, it's actually so cliched that their cartoons are boring and not understandable that it's actually the joke.

GLENN: It's the joke. It is the reason why in Fusion magazine we have quarter -- charter quarterly. It's the political cartoon that we do in Fusion magazine and it's for the -- it's the cartoon for the wealthiest 1%. I don't even understand that cartoon. You're not supposed to understand that cartoon. It's a parody of the cartoons in the New Yorker! I mean, we have the next possible President of the United States: "That cartoon, that political cartoon is an insult to all Muslims." Oh, my gosh.

And then, and then his wife was talking about the stimulus package. I love this. She's talking about the stimulus package and she's talking to some women's group. She says, let's just be honest. I mean, they sent us all the check for $600. No, they didn't. They didn't send us all a check for $600. I didn't -- did they send you one, Michelle? They better not have sent you one because you don't qualify. You actually pay taxes. I think to qualify to get the check, you have to not pay taxes. You're -- if you don't pay taxes, you're guaranteed to get a rebate, which I don't understand because maybe you didn't put anything, so how can you get a rebate. But that's a different story. If you are making six figures, you better not have gotten a check for $600. And so she's saying let's be honest, let's be honest. I mean, $600. So what, you go out and buy a pair of earrings? What? So you go out and buy a pair of earrings?

Stu, does your wife own a pair of $600 earrings?

STU: Nope.

GLENN: My wife does not own a pair of $600 -- my wife would say, $600 earrings, what, are you crazy? $600 earrings? I'll buy the fake ones; nobody will know. $600 -- who's spending -- and they wonder, why am I an elitist? Why do people say I'm an elitist?

STU: I was thinking about that over arugula the other night. Every woman I've ever known, though, has always said earrings. I'm not going to spend that much on earrings. Like I -- you know, everyone likes to have a -- they have that luxury item that they target.

GLENN: Whatever it is. It could be like women -- you could be more relatable if you said a purse to a woman.

STU: It would be relatable to me if you said that.

GLENN: Yeah, but I don't think -- my wife, are you kidding me? Anything nice that my wife has in a purse or something like that, I'll buy for her because she'll go and she'll go, that's really nice but, oh, my gosh, that's crazy for a purse. And so I'll go on her birthday or something and I'll go buy that then because she won't buy it. Who buys $600 earrings? No, I'm saying, look, if you want to get your wife something for your anniversary or for her birthday, I can see you going out and buying $600 earrings. You know, you buy her some nice stuff. But who takes their stimulus check and goes, I don't know what I want to waste this on, maybe $600 earrings? Why do they think -- Barack, put down your smoking jacket for a second. "Why is it they think we're elitists? I don't understand it. I don't know, I'm too pissed off about this editorial cartoon and my favorite magazine, the New Yorker." My gosh, who are these people? Just... okay.

Let's debunk a couple of other things and cut through the bullcrap. I don't speak political talk, but I do speak enough bullcrap. I was raised speaking bullcrap and until my 30s it was the only language that I spoke. So I think I may be able to cut through some of the political speak because really political speak is just a dialect of bullcrap. So let's go into the oil thing.

Barack Obama would like a $300 stimulus check to help people on oil. I don't know, what are you going to do? Only buy one earring? No. Were you crazy? Sure, we gave $600 stimulus checks out for people who wanted to just buy earrings, but are you implying that you don't care about those Americans with only one ear? How about the one-eared Americans that lost their ear in... some... the Great Ear War?

STU: The Great Lobe War of 1814?

GLENN: That was bad.

STU: Or the War over the Inner Ear Canal.

GLENN: It's open and we gave it to China now. I don't know that but, whew.

STU: Tough battle.

GLENN: You don't really care about those people that only have one ear? What about those people who were just born with one ear, that can only listen to AM radio? Sucks to be them. They deserve an earring.

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."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."
