Glenn Beck: Drunken negro face cookies

GLENN: Here is a report from, what is this, from local news? This is from like, you know, New York television. Listen to this report on how this bakery in Greenwich Village decided to celebrate in honor President Barack Obama on inauguration day.

VOICE: I make cookies that look like drunken Negro faces.

VOICE: He said to me, would you like some drunken Negro heads to go with your coffee.

REPORTER: This woman was appalled by what Kefalinos said when she went into the bakery on Greenwich Street.

VOICE: I didn't know what to say and he continued to say in honor of our new president and as he walked away, he then continued on to say he's followed in the same path as Abraham Lincoln; he will get his.

REPORTER: She told her friend who then --

GLENN: Stop. Stop. Okay. Who is this Cretan? Who is this Cretan? I don't care how much you don't like President Barack Obama or President George Bush, you don't even joke about something like that. You don't even joke about. You know, I have been so concerned. When I heard about the Somali people from Minneapolis, which, who's surprised this is on radar. Stu, didn't we talk about the Somali Sharia law in Minnesota? How long ago? Two years ago?

STU: Two years ago, yeah.

GLENN: Who would have seen that one coming? So anyway, there's like 20 of them that have just disappeared. They think they went over to Somalia for training. They think they may back here in the United States, they think they may have been some of the players that were involved in the attempt or the desire to disrupt or do something in the National Mall during inauguration day.

When we were having meetings about inauguration day, all of us were thinking the same thing: Dear God, dear God, what would happen. Dear God, this -- none of us actually said those words. I mean, I didn't -- what did I just say? That's a prime example. I can't even bring myself to utter those words.

STU: Right.

GLENN: Dear God, what would happen. I've been saying to you now for weeks, please -- and I mean this sincerely, please pray for our Secret Service. These guys are up to their eyes in alligators. Please, Lord, give them vision to see what they need to see and stop what they need to stop. You don't even -- I'm not even comfortable in a news setting having anybody in the room even utter words like that and this guy, a baker who's making the, what is it, the drunken Negro heads?

STU: Yes, but I will say he does have a defense to this.

GLENN: Oh, he does?

STU: And it's pretty, pretty compelling.

GLENN: The drunken Negro heads?

STU: Well, that, of course, he has a defense to but also the Abraham Lincoln comment that comes later in the piece.

GLENN: Okay, go ahead.

REPORTER: And then he says the baker used even more objectionable language.

VOICE: He's calling them drunken N word cookies which I don't even want to say.

REPORTER: You are sure he used the N word when he described those cookies?

VOICE: That's what he said to me. He said, these cookies are in honor of our new president who will get what's coming to him just like Lincoln.

REPORTER: In Style magazine mentioned Lafayette bakery as a celebrity favorite. Its cakes have been --

GLENN: Stop. Stop!

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: This makes me so happy, just that line makes me so happy. It's a celebrity favorite. Of course it is. Go ahead.

REPORTER: Used on Sex in the City and in a Spike Lee film. As for his inaugural cookies, the baker says...

VOICE: I call them drunken Negro heads. What's the problem with that?

REPORTER: And on Tuesday he says he temporarily changed the name.

GLENN: Stop. What's the problem with that? If we have to explain to you what the problem is, there's really no explanation that will work. You know what I mean? There's nothing you can say. Somebody says, at this point in our life as a country somebody says, "What's the problem with drunken Negro heads," you just have to say, "Nothing" and just move on with your life because they ain't ever gonna get it.

By the way, is there a reason they're drunken?

STU: There's never an explanation, he's making -- if you see them, there's actually pictures, and we put this in the newsletter today. If you go to GlennBeck.com you can sign up. But they actually show video of the cookies and I mean, it's caricature city. It's like, I think maybe the eyes seem to be like a red jelly sort of like, you know, candy. So maybe their eyes are red, like I don't know. But I mean, it's very -- I mean, it's all chocolate and it's like chocolate, the features are exaggerated as you might expect someone who thinks there's nothing wrong with drunken Negro heads would draw a drunken Negro head. I mean, it's very exaggerated.

GLENN: You know what, see, here's the problem I have. With an exception of the, you know, saying about the president and, you know, he'll get his, there's nothing but shame that should come to this guy.

STU: Right.

GLENN: That's it, nothing but shame. What was it? And he was using other kind of offensive language. I'm so tired of offensive language. I'm so tired of people saying, "Oh, that's offensive." You know what? If you're so pathetic that you can't handle a guy who's making drunken Negro head cookies, you're not going to be able to withstand anything. This guy's obviously an idiot.

STU: Yeah. And obviously this is one of those situations where capitalism will cure it.

GLENN: It sure will.

STU: If you are in Greenwich Village, one of the most liberal areas in America, I mean, any -- that's a stupid thing to even point out really because any area in America is going to cut this guy's business. It's just a matter of what percentage.

GLENN: There would be no, absolutely no way that -- I mean, I live in a very conservative area.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: There are little bakeries, yeah, that are right there in my hometown and there's absolutely no way. I mean, I would say --

STU: Out of business.

GLENN: "How dare you make that, what are you thinking. What are you thinking." If he was like... I would go, all right, jack. And I'd just walk out and I'd just never go back.

STU: Right. That's how you -- you don't have to -- what would happen here will probably be 14 councilmen will --

GLENN: Oh, yeah, they will make him into a --

STU: New laws about drunken Negro heads.

GLENN: No, no, there will be restrictions on cookies. There will be restrictions on cookies. Here's the good news. We need to call little Adolf Hitler in Pennsylvania and say, "We found a baker that will make your birthday cake. We found him. Here's the guy. He would have said, are you kidding me? Adolf Hitler's birthday? Here, have some drunken Negro cookies. I mean, jeez, for the love of Pete. All right. Roll it.

VOICE: I call them drunken Negro heads. What's the rob with that?

REPORTER: And on Tuesday he says he temporarily changed the name.

VOICE: See, inauguration. So I called to say Obama heads, I just change it for the day.

REPORTER: He denies using the N word or wishing for President Obama the same fate as Lincoln. He says the two women were twisting his words.

VOICE: Lincoln I think was from Illinois, right? Okay. So there you go, he's following the footsteps to Lincoln.

REPORTER: As for the cookies themselves, the objectionable name, "Don't you think it's like promoting racism? To say drunken Negro? I mean, isn't that an unflattering portrait?

VOICE: Drunken Negro face cookie.

REPORTER: It just seems like you are singling out black people making a cookie that has an unflattering face on it with an unflattering name.

VOICE: It's not unflattering, no, it's not.

GLENN: Stop for a second. Stop for a second. Would there be an outcry -- and look, I'm not defending this guy by any stretch of the imagination, but would there be an outcry if they would have done, on inauguration day, drunken white president head?

STU: Or drunken cracker head.

GLENN: Yeah, drunken cracker head?

STU: You think if it was made of crackers, it could be really tasty.

GLENN: Would there be an outcry? I mean, if they would have done drunken George W. Bush cookies. So there would not be. This is why I go back to, it's not a double standard. Everybody always says, well, there's a double standard. It's not that there's a double standard. That's the wrong argument. The argument is, are you that pathetic that a guy this stupid making stupid cookies is really going to hurt you? Isn't it promoting racism? Is there anybody who walks into that store and goes, "Oh, I think that's offensive. No, here, have one. Mmm, racism tastes pretty good." Is there anybody who's going to have their mind changed with the drunken Negro head? Yeah, that's what it's called, right? The drunken Negro head? Is there anybody who's going to be like, "I don't know, I thought I was wrong at first, but have you had one?"

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."
