Glenn Beck: Inauguration low lights

GLENN: I didn't think Barack Obama's speech was all that. I mean, it was nice and it was great and I was a little shocked that there wasn't some more -- it was just, it was fingerprintless, and it wasn't stirring. I mean, this guy has given stirring speeches of, "I have... to go... to the bathroom," and it's inspiring. Yesterday I didn't really -- were you inspired by that? I didn't really -- I mean, it was nice, don't get me wrong, but there wasn't -- there was not a single catch phrase in it, well, except for the end. I liked the end. Oh, what did the old preacher say? He said, when brown can stick around, when yella can be mella and white will do what's right. Oh, man. There's nothing better than on the day when we inaugurate an African-American that whity is called racist. I love that. It's the kind of "Bring is all together" that only Jeremiah Wright or apparently this preacher that Barack Obama knows. And USA Today described President Obama as smiling and nodding his head during that.

I was actually watching Fox and Friends. I was pissed that I wasn't on with them this morning because I'm driving in and I'm listening to them and they say, they said, "I just thought that was funny." Funny? He's praying to God, in a prayer he's praying to God for the day when brown can stick around. I don't know. Brown can be in the White House now, running the free world for four years. Maybe he means he's praying for the day when we can give him just eight. When brown can stick around, when yella can get mella. I don't know about you but those Asians are all hopped up on something. When yella can be mella. And when white can do what's right. Amazing, just amazing.

But then there was the balls that happened, and the green ball was going on and Al Gore went, of course, to the green ball, which is weird because he left in an SUV. You know, I just must have been one of those things, couldn't get a green car. Oh, if the government would just mandate that he would have driven a green hybrid, it would have been so much better. But there's no mandates there. So what was he supposed to do? And then Helen Thomas. Helen Thomas made quite a statement. Do you have it? Here it is.

THOMAS: If JFK was the most inspired president she knew, who is the least inspired? She says in her opinion...

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop! Who do you think it was? Who do you think that was? What a question. Probing minds want to know. Well, it is Helen Thomas. So maybe it was Franklin Pierce. Could have been. I think it was a couple of presidents before Abraham Lincoln. So might have been Franklin Pierce that she worked under, so to speak. I feel like the opposite of Homer Simpson. You know how he is like... mmm, doughnuts. You think that about Helen Thomas. You're like....

Fun Fact: Did you know vomir is the French translation for the English phrase to vomit.

Okay. Although, Helen Thomas naked with doughnuts? Never thought I could make a dream of a doughnut bad, did you? I did it. That's my job. Stretch the horizon, you know? Push the edges.

So she went on to answer this question and so much more. Listen up.

VOICE: President George W. Bush. You're quoted as saying he's the worst president in history.

THOMAS: That's because he came in with the whole idea of war. He misses most unkind. Not only that but his conservative views on everything. I'm a liberal. I was born a liberal.

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop, stop! Stop! She's a liberal? Wait a minute. She thinks that George Bush is the worst and she's a liberal? "That's because I'm a liberal. I was born a liberal." You were born a liberal? Hmmm. Well, that just goes to prove that you don't have to actually read anything, learn anything, study anything out, ask any tough questions, have any kind of introspection because "I was born a liberal." Oh, that's weird, I wasn't born with my views. I was born with rights. Liberals generally try to take them away. But I wasn't born with my views. But it's good to see that liberals can be.

THOMAS: I'll be one until I die. What else should the reporting be, when you see so much and when we have such great privilege and access to the truth.

VOICE: Well, you know, it's interesting because I'm sure somebody from the right would --

GLENN: Wait, did you -- hang on, I've got to hear this. Somebody from the right is sitting here. Go ahead.

VOICE: If you ask the question, what else should a reporter be and they would go, oh, I don't know, how about objective?

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop! Can we go back? Could we go back? Listen to this! Listen to this! Play it back. Tell me what sticks out. Go back to, "I'm a liberal. That's the only thing you should be."

VOICE: You know, it's interesting because I'm sure that if somebody from the right was sitting here, they would say if you asked the question, what else should a reporter be, they would say, "Oh, I don't know, how about objective?"

GLENN: Stop. Stu, before I hear her answer from a liberal that was born and going to die liberal, what sticks out in that question?

More Helen for the fellas...

STU: If someone from the right was there maybe?

GLENN: If?

STU: If. So there isn't one.

GLENN: No.

STU: That neither one of them.

GLENN: If someone from the right were here, they should say maybe objective, as opposed to, "Well, a lot of people, normal people, common sense people would say maybe a journalist should be balanced, objective. That's a right point of view." That's crazy people on the right, they just want you to be objective.

STU: Well, at least, you know, I would think if anyone, more than anyone would say that, even more than someone from the right, it would be in theory a journalist who is in theory has gone to school for decades to train themselves to be objective to cover stories without a liberal bias.

GLENN: That question doesn't say everything, it shows -- well, first of all, they are doing a story. Who is interested in Helen Thomas and asking her the question, "Who's the worst president," on inaugural day, "Who's the worst president." If I were sitting around in a meeting and I said, "Hey, guys, I'm going to ask Helen Thomas who she thinks the worst president is," don't you think everybody in the room would go, "George Bush"? Of course that's the answer. So where's the news there? And if it doesn't show the bias of the media on just "Let's trash George Bush" and the bias of the media, "Well, someone from the right should say you're objective." Not someone from the right saying, "Well, you should have the right, you should be conservative." Someone from the right saying you should be objective! Unbelievable. How does she respond? My head's starting to hurt.

THOMAS: You're not asking people not to think, not to care, are you?

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop! Not asking people to think? "You are not asking them to stop thinking, do you?" You didn't think! You were born this way! It doesn't require any thinking! You just know!

STU: Wow, she just equated being objective with not thinking.

GLENN: Or caring.

STU: Or caring. If that is not journalism in Washington.

GLENN: This, this has to be -- is this just audio or is this a --

STU: I think there's video, too.

DAN: Thankfully, thankfully there is video, Glenn, of this.

GLENN: What network did this? Can you ad the porn music? That is so hot. We've got the sexy video of Helen Thomas being objective. Mmm. This has to be on TV. Send this over to Fox. This is unbelievable.

DAN: Her answer continues, Glenn. I don't know if you --

GLENN: Oh, dear god. I don't know if I can take it. All right, go ahead.

THOMAS: You are asking them to give a fair reporting, both sides and so forth, and I did it. For 57 years I was never, never accused of bias in my copy.

GLENN: From everybody, except from everybody that wasn't liberal! Oh, jeez. Send that over to TV. Got to have that. Oh, America's got to see that. By the way, the people who are preaching to us, we all have to come together, yesterday in Houston defaced a George H. W. Bush statue that said "No more bush" and I think they've blurted out but it looks to be the shape of a Nazi symbol on it, a swastika. That's the first thing I think of when I think of the Bushes. Of course, not the Kennedys. I don't think that about the Kennedys even though Gerald P. Kennedy was the one who said we have nothing to worry about with Hitler and that Jewish problem that he's dealing with, none of our business. I definitely don't think, you know, swastika with the Kennedys. I immediately think of that with the Bushes.

 

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."
