Glenn Beck: Media blown away by Obama




MSNBC's embarrassing convention coverage...

GLENN: From Radio City in Midtown Manhattan, third most listened to show in all of America. Hello, you sick twisted freak. Welcome to the program. We have to I have to play the audio from MSNBC last night. You want to talk about playing to the crowd, listen to Keith Olbermann last night after Barack Obama walks off the stage. Listen to the crowd around the MSNBC booth and listen to his listen to his obnoxious, elitist, "Oh, let me quote some Shakespeare" kind of attitude. It's just nauseating. Here it is.

OLBERMANN: Take pride that this nation can produce men as speakers such as that.

GLENN: Stop just a second. Stu and Dan, Stu and Dan, you guys used to watch him on sports, right?

STU: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: Did you like him? Was he good at sports?

STU: He was okay. He wasn't one of my favorite sports center anchor but he was still good. Very sarcastic.

GLENN: When did he become this, "If you support him or you do not, you must recognize that someone like this can be produced from this great nation of ours.

DAN: This has to be a gradual decline because I remember actually being sort of cool because him and Dan Patrick were like the first two, like, sports center guys that made it fun and did all the cool little witty commentaries in between and I thought it was cool then but I don't know what happened.

GLENN: I mean, all of a sudden he is is he becoming more and more pretentious?

STU: Oh, God, it's an unending cycle. He is a perpetual motion machine as far as that goes.

GLENN: I mean, he is just becoming more and more I expect him to be I expect him to be, within a week, wearing robes and always clutching books. You know what I mean?

STU: Well, he is covering

GLENN: He's like, "Let me look it up in this novel that I was reading last night."

STU: Well, he was covering speeches given at Greek temples. So I mean, he is on his way.

GLENN: So it's there. So okay, go ahead.

OLBERMANN: That this nation can produce men as speakers such as that.

GLENN: Such as that.

OLBERMANN: For 42 minutes, not a sour note and spell binding throughout, in a way usually reserved for the creations of fiction.

GLENN: Oh.

OLBERMANN: An extraordinary political statement, almost a fully realized tough, crisp, insistent speech.

GLENN: Stop, stop! I can't take it! I mean, who, who speaks like this? First of all, who makes sure that every letter is enunciated correctly? Who speaks like this? I mean, I'm you know what? I want old tape on Keith Olbermann. Was he speaking like this when he was like, "And the blue dress got stains all over it." Now all of a sudden he is exact in the English language. Arghhh. Does it make your skin crawl, does anybody is it just me? I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Am I nitpicking? Go ahead, Dan.

OLBERMANN: In the tone and in the sense of cutting through the clutter, akin to the words that were given to the fictional title character in an Aaron sore kin film "The American President," only this "Cut the crap" moment is not fiction. This is the real thing out here.

GLENN: Listen. Listen to the crowd.


[ Cheers and Applause ]

GLENN: And they're pausing for it.

OLBERMANN: I'd love to find something to criticize about it. You got anything?

MATTHEWS: No.

GLENN: No! This is news coverage! This is news coverage! It's not like me, I'm on television, I'll tell you right up front: I'm a conservative; I hate this son of a bitch. I mean, I'll say things like that. This is news coverage! You've got to be kidding me! You've got to be kidding me. Look, just admit it. Just admit it. I will suck the pimple pus out of any pimple that he might have on his cheek. I'll do it. I mean, admit it! Oh. Instead, "I am a journalist, and I will give you the fair analysis of how much I love this man and you should, too. And by the way, for those critics of this show who would say that I would suck the pimple pus out of any pimple that he might have, off of his cheek, I of course would not suck the pimple pus out of his pimples that he might have on his cheek because this man is perfect." Agrhhh! All right. What was Chris Matthews saying?

OLBERMANN: Got anything?

MATTHEWS: No. You know, I've been criticized for saying he inspires me and to hell with my critics.

GLENN: I'd like to suck the pimple pus off his cheek, too, Keith. Jeez. You know what? Can I just say I think it's time for people to be honest. Look, I think Barack Obama is a dangerous, dangerous man. He is not qualified. He is a Marxist. That is my opinion. You don't agree with it, that's fine. But I'm going to tell you that right up front. I'm a conservative. I look at the Constitution differently than this man does. That's fine. Let's just be honest. I'll tell you when I'm on my TV show the same thing, and I'll tell you that I'm a conservative. These clowns on MSNBC, how are they getting away with it? How are they getting away with it? I have to tell you I'm a pariah. I walk around news people, I'm a pariah. I don't do any of that I don't do any of that. I would never do that, never. I think we should just change the advertising for MSNBC. I think we should just change it. I bet Keith Olbermann would call them an advert, I think we should change the adverts maybe to something like this.

VOICE: Tonight on NBC it's a complete recap of the Democratic National Convention. At 7:00 p.m. Chris Matthews fights back tears of joy as he evaluates the Democrats' leg tingling orgasm inducing pitch perfect speeches. Then at 8:00 p.m., liberal blogger Media Matters types words into Keith Olbermann's TelePrompTer that praise the Democrats' speeches. But Keith takes it a step further and tries to make love to the video monitor, replaying Obama's speech. Then at 9:00 p.m., it's MSNBC's newest hire, a liberal radio talk host with a resume chockful of bankrupting radio networks. And don't miss our coverage of the Republican national convention, as we put the bow tie back on Tucker Carlson and send him to Minneapolis in the Oscar Mayer Weiner truck. MSNBC, the home of journalism.

(Barack Obama music).

GLENN: Now, I don't know if you've heard this, but they are actually, Barack Obama, his campaign is confronting WGN radio. You tell me this is a group of people that understand free speech. The Obama campaign has organized its supporters to confront WGN in Chicago for having a critic of Barack Obama on the air. This is according to Obama's campaign. They wrote in an e mail to their supporters, WGN radio is giving right wing hatchet man Stanley Kurtz a forum to air his baseless, fearmongering, terrorist smears. He is currently scheduled to spend two solid hour blocks from 9:00 to 11:00 p.m. pushing lies, distortions and manipulations about Barack and University of Illinois professor William Ayers. Kurtz, a conservative writer recently wrote an article for the National Review that looked at bow automatic a's ties to Ayers, yada, yada, yada, yada. Tell GN that by providing airtime with Kurtz, they are legit might have gone attacks from a smear merchant and lowering the standards of political discourse. It's absolutely unacceptable that WGN would give a slimy character assassination like Kurtz a slimy character assassin like Kurtz time for his divisive, destructive ranting on our public airways. Keyword: Public airwaves. At the very least they should offer sane, honest rebuttal to every one of Kurtz's lies. Amazing to me that they used the word "Public airwaves" because, gang, that is what's coming. This is what the this is what the campaign is doing. I'm making you a promise that if Barack Obama and congress is controlled by the left, voices like mine will be gone. Voices like mine. There is and you know what? I'm not all I'm not convinced that somebody like John McCain wouldn't reach over to the left if he were President and try to do it himself because we ain't doing him any favors, either. And I could see I mean, the man who gave us the McCain/Feingold, the biggest damage to the First Amendment, he's done more damage to free speech than any other single man alive, I believe, John McCain. I don't trust that he's not going to take away your voice and my voice as well, whether that be on radio, public airwaves or on the Internet. You know what, Stu? Do you know anything hang on. Give me the close of the Barack Obama, please.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
