GLENN BECK PROGRAM
|Stu's video from the protests outside the UN on Tuesday.|
GLENN: All right. So you were at these protests. We send you up first, and I apologize. My apologies to you, Stu.
STU: Aren't I supposed to get a Frosty today?
GLENN: Frosty today, Frosty Wednesday. But I sent you up to Columbia to join that protest and you were in that pack of zombies.
STU: Those people who are more on our side of the argument, when we were at Columbia, people were upset that President Tom was in town. Yesterday's protest, not the same story.
GLENN: May I just say to you that I sent you to Columbia University?
STU: Yes, thank you.
GLENN: Then yesterday at the United Nations. Stu, tell me about the protests where there were 25,000 people.
STU: Well, there -- well...
GLENN: Yeah? How many were at Columbia?
STU: Well, Columbia there was a few hundreds.
GLENN: A few hundreds protestors.
STU: There were flyers around and the flyers were pointing people to another protest, a separate protest happening at the United Nations at what time?
GLENN: See, I didn't see that one. It's weird. It's almost as if all of the cameras were at Columbia University and not at the United Nations where there were 25,000 protestors protesting Ahmadinejad. 25,000 protestors. All the cameras were at Columbia.
STU: Yeah, and think about it. Think about your local news, national news. How many times have you seen protests of 300 people, 200 people, you know, 500 people about some stupid issue, 20 people standing on a corner: Honk if you hate this war. How many times have you seen that footage? And then there's 25,000 people standing up against this tyrant and you don't see anything. No coverage.
GLENN: So my question is, Ahmadinejad, just brilliant? This protest had been scheduled for a while. So is he brilliant? Did he make sure to say that's the only time I can do it to Columbia University? Was Columbia University, did they offer the time? Who was it that came up with a time that it happened to coincide with the 25,000 people, you know, 70 blocks away? Did it -- who was the time keeper here?
STU: My personal guess has to be they knew this was coming and they decided to --
STU: And they decided to distract, a political move that worked wonders, shockingly enough.
GLENN: Tell me again how Columbia wasn't used for propaganda. Tell me again?
STU: I didn't -- I don't look at that at all.
GLENN: Yeah, it's very interesting how no, no, no, they weren't used as pawns. Yes.
