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.
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!
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.
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.
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?"
