Glenn Beck: Drunken negro face cookies

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/v/SBLR6XYJlsc&hl=en&fs=1 expand=1]

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?"

On the morning of Aug. 15, Asma was a free woman in Kabul. She wore Western clothes. Traveled safely alone. Attended college in a neighboring country with the money her parents had saved. By that evening, her entire world had changed.

For the first time in her life, Asma was confronted with the reality of the Taliban. The horror stories she heard growing up were no longer the nightmare of her parents' generation. They were hers, too. Faced with the impossible decision to stay with her family and risk imminent torture or death, she chose to live, and take on the Taliban face-to-face.

Asma's bravery also led to the rescue of over 150 Afghan college women. She tells Glenn she was willing to die before she let the Taliban take her or the other women. But she didn't do it alone. Her sister Azada, helplessly watching the horror unfold from the U.S., quickly turned to her father's contact list. What follows is a miracle evacuation story that ends with a sisters' reunion and hope for a new future. These brave Afghan sisters have a message for those in their home country still trapped, for the leaders of this country, and for the men and women in uniform (and their families) who may believe the American sacrifices for Afghanistan were in vain.

Finally, a note about the other heroes in the rescue story. The movement of the seven buses of college women into the Kabul airport was a chain with about 8-10 links. Had any one of those links not been present or broken, the young women would not have made it into the airport for evacuation, and three young women taken by the Taliban would not have been recovered.

Glenn and his team would like to give a special thanks to Francisco from Arcis International, Wade and Jim from Commercial Task Force, Blaine from E3 Ranch Foundation, Michael and his crew from Kam Air, No One Left Behind, Samaritan's Purse, and Charmaine, Chris, Geno, John, Lori, Rob, Rudy & the Ground Team from The Nazarene Fund.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.
