NYT blames Glenn Beck for shootings




Glenn Beck's Common Sense


The Case Against an Out-of-Control Government, Inspired by Thomas Paine

GLENN: This is absolutely amazing. I have to just go all over this Paul Krugman editorial because I read the whole thing now. It is absolutely amazing. In the New York Times today the big hate, backs in April there was a huge fuss by the Department of Homeland Security warning of conditions resembling those in the 1990s, a time marked by an upsurge of rightwing extremism that culminated in the Oklahoma City bombing.

STU: May I just mention one thing real quick before you go on?

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: The idea that this report is just, somehow this murder justifies that report, does anyone in the their right mind believe that what the Department of Homeland Security had in mind were World War II veterans who fought to free and end the Holocaust going to murder people at the Holocaust museum. I would like to know if there's any evidence that has anything even

GLENN: Veterans, they said veterans. They said veterans!

STU: It's so bad. Like they were talking about 90 year olds. I was listening to a show the other day, there was that thing, the footage of the cop who tasered the 72 year old woman they were running on the other day and it was like everyone was making fun of them. Like, oh, a 72 year old woman who's getting tased, all right, cop, calm down. Here's a 90 year old guy. There's no way the Department of Homeland Security was taking into account.

GLENN: They said veterans.

STU: That anyone with World War I might be involved.

GLENN: Conservatives were outraged. The chairman of the RNC denounced the report as an attempt to segment out conservatives in the country who have a different philosophy, different view, blah, blah blah. But with the murder of George Tiller, an antiabortion fanatic closely followed by a shooting of a white supremacist, you know, it begins to make the Homeland Security look great. There is however one important thing that the DHS report didn't say. Today as in the early years of the Clinton administration but to an even greater extent rightwing extremism is being systematically fed by the conservative media and political establishment. Wow. Now, I mean, they don't even see the beam in their own eye. Now for the most part the likes of Fox News and the RNC haven't directly incited violence. For the most part. For the most part we haven't directly incited violence. Got that? In any part. Has anyone at any time in the RNC or on Fox News incited violence? I'd like to see one.

STU: Directly.

GLENN: Direct, is there anyone, for the most part.

STU: Meaning

GLENN: We haven't directly incited violence.

STU: Meaning there was a part where you did which is again a blatant lie.

GLENN: Yes. Despite Bill O'Reilly's declarations that some call Dr. Tiller, Tiller the baby killer and that he had blood on his hands and that he was a guy operating a death mill all of those are true. All of those are true. But they have gone out of their way to provide a platform for conspiracy theories and apocalyptic rhetoric just as they did the last time the Democrat held a White House.

I want you to know the last time a Democrat held the White House was under Bill Clinton. I wasn't a fan of Bill Clinton, but I wasn't apocalyptic ranting on Bill Clinton. I've never said the thing, I've never said the things I believe that are happening right now that I'm saying right now. I've never believed these things, never before have I believed them. And I don't believe them because it's a Democrat in the White House. I was starting to say these things under George W. Bush four years ago. At this point whatever dividing line there is between mainstream conservativism and black helicopter crowd seems to have been virtually erased. Exhibit A for the mainstreaming of rightwing extremism is Fox News' new star Glenn Beck. Here we have a network where, like it or not, millions of Americans get their news. Like it or not. It gives daily airtime to a commentator who among other things warned viewers that the FEMA agency might be building concentration camps of the Obama administers's totalitarian agenda. Never, ever have I said that, never. I go ahead, Stu.

STU: You did just say it when you were reading Paul Krugman saying it.

GLENN: I with an exception of that time and the last time I read this review, I have never, ever said that. The reason why we did this, if you listen to this program, I had a caller call me on the air and I said can we I snapped one day and said, can we stop with the FEMA camp! Stu, I want somebody correct me if I'm wrong, Stu. Stu, I want somebody to prove it or disprove it. That's all I want. I want it over. It's either true or it's not. I've never believed in the FEMA camp.

STU: No.

GLENN: Never. Never.

STU: Yeah. And, you know, luckily it happened in a national radio show, so anyone could find out about it. But the other thing is, you know, when you did the debunking of this with Popular Mechanics is when I learned it started back in the Clinton administration. To me it was always a Bush administration conspiracy theory.

GLENN: Yep.

STU: Had nothing to do with Obama. Had been in office for like a month. He's not that fast. I mean, he's pretty fast as we've seen.

GLENN: And then he says, although I eventually conceded that nothing of the kind happened.

STU: You can't eventually no.

GLENN: It's no more of a lie than "For the most part I haven't directly incited violence."

STU: Right, it's no more of a lie than that. The same amount of lie.

GLENN: But let's not neglect the print news media. In the Bush years the Washington Times became an important media player because it was widely regarded as a Bush administration's house organ. Oh, kind of like the New York Times and MSNBC. Earlier this week the newspaper sought fit to run an opinion piece declaring that Obama not only identifies with Muslims but may actually still be one himself and that any case he has aligned himself with the radical Muslim brotherhood.

Find out who said that in the opinion because now we're going after opinions. There's a chill wind blowing in this country. I believe it was Tim Robbins that said that. Now we're going after opinions. And then there is Rush Limbaugh. His rants today aren't very different from his rants in 1993. Yes, they are. But he occupies a different position on the scheme of things. Remember during the Bush years Mr. Limbaugh became a very much political insider. According to the recent Gallup survey, 10% of Republicans now consider him the main person who speaks for the Republican Party. 10%. Just to put this in perspective, 10% believe that we haven't walked on the moon. 12% believe we blew up the World Trade Center. What is the percentage who believe that bush and Cheney blew up the levees in New Orleans? 10%? And that makes him, yeah, that's worth printing. So when Mr. Limbaugh peddles conspiracy theories suggesting, for example, that the fears over swine flu are being hyped to get people to respond to government orders, that's a case of conservative media establishment joining hands with the lunatic fringe. Is it? See, this is the kind of stuff that they said when I said they're going to nationalize our banks. I said that under George W. Bush. This isn't Republican solemn Democrat. Do not fall for this bogus game. They need us to be fighting Republican and Democrat. It's both of them. I said to you two years ago they are going to nationalize our banks. They have. Why was I such a fear monger two years ago? Or am I responsible for the nationalizing of the banks? Oh, my gosh, it's my fault! It's not surprising politicians are doing the same thing. The RNC says the Democratic Party is dedicated to restructuring American society along socialist ideals.

That is true. Maybe the first sentence that you printed, Paul Krugman, that is true.

When Jon Voight the actor told an audience at a Republican fundraiser this week the president is a false prophet, true. And that we alone are in the right frame of mind to free this nation from this Obama oppression. Untrue. Mitch McConnell, the Senate minority leader, thanked him for saying that he really enjoyed his remarks. Credit where credit is due. Some figures in the conservative media have refused to go along with the big hate. Oh, jeez.

STU: Don't tell me David Frum and David Brooks.

GLENN: No, shepherd Smith.

STU: Oh, Shep. Shep is a news man. He is not part of the conservative media. He is a news person.

GLENN: Yep.

They debunked the attacks on Homeland Security report two months ago but this doesn't change the broad picture which is that supposedly respectable news organizations and political figures are giving aid and comfort to dangerous extremism. This from the paper that this from the paper that has been giving aid and comfort to our foreign enemies. What will the consequences be? No one knows, of course. Though the analysts at Homeland Security fretted that things may turn out even worse than in the 1990s. Thanks in part to the election of an African American president. Remember you are an extremist, you are a hate monger. You want to destroy the country. You want to kill all abortion doctors and you hate black people. The threat posed by lone wolves and small terrorist cells is more pronounced than in past years. That is a threat to take seriously.

Really? Paul Krugman, we should take a terror threat seriously? Why the fear mongering from the New York Times?

Yes, the worst attack in our history was perpetrated by a foreign conspiracy. Are you a conspiracy theorist? Why all of these conspiracies in the New York Times? Trying to wrap yourself around more fear? But the second worst, Oklahoma City bombing was perpetrated by an all American lunatic. Politicians and media organizations wind up such people at their and our peril. You are exactly right. Just like you've wound up ELF. You wound up the guy who thinks that American soldiers are baby killers and that's why he went down to Alabama and shot our troops. You know that guy who rolled the grenade underneath the tent? Remember at the beginning of the why? Paul Krugman, New York Times.

STU: Personally responsible, Glenn. I don't see how you can see it any other way, if you're Paul Krugman.

GLENN: I just want to say I would just, I would just like to point out the fact that remember, the guy who I'm now responsible for, for the shooting at the Holocaust museum, these are his views that we know. He wants to dissolve Israel. I don't. He hates Jews. I don't. He believes George W. Bush is behind 9/11. I don't. He hates Bill O'Reilly. I don't. He has threatened to bomb the weekly standard. Well, I read the weekly standard. He hates neocons. We may join here slightly. He hates the Fed. Me, too. Targeted Fox News. Well, I'm going to let you in on a little secret. My plan was to go over to Fox News as a CNN plant and destroy their ratings. Oops, it didn't work out that well, but my intention was to target Fox News. And he hates blacks. I don't.

Now, let's just look. Is he a rightwing extremist or a leftwing extremist? Let's just go through them. Dissolve Israel and hates Jews. No, that's pretty much leftwing, not right. George W. Bush behind 9/11, pretty sure that's leftwing. Hates Bill O'Reilly, that's all wings.

STU: That's leftwing, though.

GLENN: Yeah, it is, clear.

STU: That's the Keith Olbermann program. The entire thing is designed for it.

GLENN: Exactly right. Bombs the Weekly Standard, that would be leftwing. Hates neocons, that would be leftwing. In fact, if I hear Paul Krugman mention neocons one more time! Hates the Fed, that's everybody outside of politics. Targeted Fox News, that would be the leftwing. And hates blacks. Well, let me just give the rightwing one point here. I have to give it to the left as well, but let me give it to the right here just because I feel bad because they have been shut out! This is a rightwing extremist, this guy, this is a rightwing extremist to Paul Krugman. Now, do you think with these views with an exception of Hates the Fed," this guy could stomach two minutes of my show? Do you think he could stomach two minutes? I can guarantee you if this guy would have ever saw my show, he was calling me a Jew lover the whole time.

STU: Would that be in our hour long interview with Benjamin Netanyahu?

GLENN: Might be where I said you are being set up, you are going to be left alone?

STU: You didn't believe in the last one I thought. I thought you were denying the last one. Why would you say another Holocaust might be coming from Iran?

GLENN: Well, because that's what rightwing people do. Now

STU: Listen to this. Glenn, real quick. Look at all, look at how far we've come. In real life you start here and you say, did we'll call you Person B. Did Person B kill anybody? No. Did Person B go with Person A to kill somebody?

GLENN: No.

STU: Did person A tell Person B to do it?

GLENN: No.

STU: Did Person A listen to Person B?

GLENN: Don't think so.

STU: As far as we don't know. We're already past all of this. Did Person A share the same views as Person B?

GLENN: No.

STU: And this is what we get to with Paul Krugman. Will people check on it.

GLENN: No.

STU: If it will clear that level, they will print it. If people just will not check on questions 1 through 5 and just skip to question 6 and say, "All right, well, you know what, they probably won't you know what, they think this guy had a gun. He's probably rightwing." This is how low the standard is to blame conservatives for these things. There's not even evidence that any of these people even listen to you in any other way of saying, "I hate that guy because he doesn't like hate Jews as much as I do."

GLENN: Wasn't that the guy, the guy who shot the cops in Pittsburgh, where they also blamed that one on me. You notice that one went away. Do you know why? Because we exposed that they were saying, he listened to Glenn Beck, he posted something about Glenn Beck on this rightwing extremist, you know, website. Remember, they were saying that? Oh, some white power website. He was posting about Glenn Beck. That was their evidence that he was a fan and that I got him to go shoot cops. Do you know what he posted? AntiGlenn Beck stuff!

STU: Because you wouldn't go with him to his crazy conspiracy theories.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Specifically the FEMA camp thing, which is specifically what Paul Krugman cites as your evidence. That's how weak this is. It is so insulting to your intelligence if you actually think about it.

GLENN: If you think about it.

STU: If you think about it, which they don't, do they? Do they? Do you, Paul? You don't. You've never thought in your life.

GLENN: He's more angry than I am.

STU: No, I just hate this, it is so weak.

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.
