Glenn Beck: Olbermann gushes over Michelle




MSNBC "Anchor" Keith Olbermann gushes over Michelle Obama's speech...

GLENN: Here's the number, 888 727 BECK. Let's Christina, why don't you screen the phone calls. Let's get a bunch of people up and see what people said about Michelle Obama and then I'm going to play some clips for you. I'm going to tell you exactly how I feel about it. We've got some more on this insanity that is the green, the greenest convention ever. Really? The most sustainable convention ever. Why would I want to sustain this convention? Just keep it going? I don't think so. Have you noticed that they are not really talking about that? They made this big deal out of it? I wonder why. Do you think maybe it's because, oh, crap, this will remind people that we're really not for lower gas prices. Do you think they went through all of this and now they just have to do it? Have you noticed that they are not really talking about it? They are just kind of keeping it, "Shhh, that's between us."

STU: Well, I mean, they're going the funny thing about this is it's just a commercial. You know like when cable news, we do this sometimes, we'll be talking about a commercial and we'll play the commercial in its entirety and essentially it amounts to free advertising. They want these commercials to be played and we're playing them to pick them apart. But that's all this is. This is a four day prime time commercial that they just throw out there and everybody picks it up and just airs it and sometimes without questioning and sometimes by blatantly praising what's happening.

GLENN: Did you watch MSNBC last night?

STU: Hold on. I need to get into your head here. Why would you bring up, right when I say blatantly praising, you brought up MSNBC. That was weird.

GLENN: I have no idea. Play Cut 6 for me, will you? This is Michelle Obama from last night. Here's Cut 6. It's the close.

MICHELLE OBAMA: Barack Obama, President of the United States of America. Thank you. God bless you and God bless America.

GLENN: She's fantastic. She's got a I can't imagine what the reporters might say after something like that. I just can't imagine what they you know what, you say a speech, you know, God bless America and then, you know, what does a reporter do. Couldn't say anything ridiculous. Imagine, this is "Case closed." Stop for a second. Can you imagine, Michelle Obama pitched perfect. Can you imagine somebody going off and just spiraling into, just sickophantic, just nonsense, wonderful, terrific, you know, and just gush about it. I mean, you actually start feeling bad for somebody if they were doing that, wouldn't you? Wouldn't you just feel bad? You'd be like, that guy's not even a journalist.

VOICE: Case, I think, closed.

GLENN: Ooh, whoops.

VOICE: If that speech was to be more about tone than content, pitch perfect. Supposed to be more about content than tone, pitch perfect.

GLENN: Pitch perfect!

VOICE: If that was supposed to be about friendliness and accessibility, couldn't have done it better.

GLENN: Couldn't have done it better.

VOICE: Look at these kids. I think that's part of the story. They have not exploited those kids at all but it's nice to see them all together once

GLENN: Stop, stop! You know, they haven't exploited these kids at all. They really, they really get a tight shot on them, will you here? Remember when they were on Access Hollywood and they were doing this thing at Access Hollywood. They were exploited on Access Hollywood and what happens? "We are not going to exploit our kids." Boy, did we learn our lesson. So the last thing we're going to do is go on Access Hollywood because there's like 500,000 viewers a night on Access Hollywood. Let's put them on okay, all right, we'll put them on national television, you know, but just on a night when every single network is covering it. And then I'll give the microphone to the cute little one. That's what I but not exploit. Do not exploit the children. Come on, Chris Matthews. You know, they really haven't exploited these children except for the time they admitted they exploited the children and then, of course, tone.

VOICE: A daughter, 10 and 7 years old. That was the oldest that she described, her husband driving her home from the hospital

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait. And the story she told about driving the little one there, that's the story she told about, but they are not exploiting the children at all.

VOICE: The terms of this speech.

GLENN: Yes.

VOICE: To try to erase doubts that now seem difficult to voice aloud because they seem almost foolish. What's also been

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. Stop. "The purpose of this speech were to erase doubts, you know, these doubts that are just so ridiculous, they're just so I mean, they're so infantile if you have any doubts." It was one speech. How could you possibly have any doubts? Seem like a fool. Who could possibly express any doubts? I could! In fact, I love working next to Rockefeller Plaza, 30 Rock. I love it. I'm right across the street from NBC. Hey, Keith Olbermann (yelling)! Jeez. Who could possibly I mean, it just seems ridiculous. This is foolish.

VOICE: Subtly.

GLENN: Subtly.

VOICE: There was a reference to they love this country, meaning the troops. There was another one

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop. Subtly. Subtly she said, "I love this country." What does that mean? Subtly she said, "I don't want people to think I really do. I just want to be subtle. I just want to work that in." Subtly she said I love this country? Did you hear what she said about the troops? She talked about Dan, you've got to find the clip on the troops. She nope, nope, nope, I'm starting to give myself away. I'm sorry.

STU: Be a journalist, Glenn.

GLENN: I'm sorry. Lady, just go ahead and finish. Just finish the Keith Olbermann.

VOICE: References to country, but he went back and listened to that speech again and waited for the moment in which she supposedly selling herself and redeeming herself, you wouldn't have noticed it. It was just a speech by there's the video.

GLENN: Just stop, stop. It was just, it was just a speech by a goddess hang on, hang on, here's some

VOICE: And that was and it was not a modeling speech.

GLENN: It wasn't a modeling speech.

VOICE: It was not a salesmanship speech.

GLENN: Not a salesmanship.

VOICE: I know I'm beginning to sound borderline sickophantic of this. So I'll stop, you start.

GLENN: What? Borderline sickophantic? Your whole career is built on that, Keith Olbermann. Oh! I can't take it. I swear to you.

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.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

"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."
