Glenn Beck: Are You Part of the Right-Wing Extremist Mob?




Watch Glenn Beckweekdays at 5p & 2a ET on FOX News Channel

Are you one of the tens of thousands of people who don't want government-run health care and showed up at a town hall or a rally to let it be known?

Here's The One Thing: If that's you then you are part of the right-wing, extremist, angry mob and your anger is fake. It's not organic. It's not grassroots. There's not a chance in hell you've experienced waiting in line at a post office or the DMV and don't want that same wait when you need a liver.

Nope.

You are just a GOP robot who's been activated — at least, that's what the holy trinity of the media, the White House and the DNC are saying.

(BEGIN DNC VIDEO CLIP)

NARRATOR: The right-wing extremist Republican base is back.

UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: He's not an American citizen.

NARRATOR: They lost the election. They lost on the recovery act, the budget and children's health care.

They've lost the confidence of the American people after eight years of failed policies that ruined our economy and cost millions of jobs.

Now, desperate Republicans and their well funded allies are organizing angry mobs -- just like they did during the election.

Their goal? Destroy President Obama and stop the change Americans voted for overwhelmingly in November.

SEN. JIM DEMINT, R-S.C.: It will break him.

RUSH LIMBAUGH: I hope he fails.

NARRATOR: This mob activity is straight from the playbook of high-level Republican political operatives. They have no plan for moving our country forward, so they've called out the mob.

UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: I want to know, why are you people ignoring his birth certificate?

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Out of the thousands of protestors, the "birther" idiot is the only one the media continues to show — over and over again. She is the only individual highlighted in this ad from the DNC and then the ad dives into some sort of third grade "you lost the election, boo hoo" argument, while claiming the GOP has just released their fake angry mobsters to go protest.

I don't know about you, but I don't have much time in my day to answer a call from the GOP, get up off my couch, leave my family for a day, to stand outside in the summer heat and rain pretending to be angry.

I really am angry!

Conservatives aren't natural-born protesters like granola-eating hippies. But when their country is being transformed into some wannabe European socialist craphole, we're forced to get up off the couch.

But that's not how Democrats see it:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

SEN. DICK DURBIN, D-ILL.: I hope my colleagues won’t fall for a sucker-punch like this. These health insurance companies and people like them are trying to load these town halls for visual impact on television. They want to show thousands of people screaming "socialism" and try to overcome the public sentiment which now favors health care reform.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

The forget the facts, Sen. Durbin, you know, like:

• Gallop poll: 63 percent say Obama's plan will worsen or "not change" medical care for them personally

• NPR poll: 47 percent oppose Obama's plan vs. 42 percent supporting it

• Pew Research: 44 percent oppose vs. 38 percent supporting it

• The New York Times: "77 percent say costs will increase" under government plan

Where are you getting your numbers from, Sen. Durbin?

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs still doesn't understand the protests. He referred to them as another "Brooks Brothers brigade" and "Astroturf grassroots" with "manufactured anger." That's rich coming from the same people who stick up for the "spontaneous protests" of ACORN.

I thought Obama would heal divisions and unite us? I swear I've heard that before somewhere:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

FORMER PRESIDENT BUSH: I get protested all the time. The great thing about the country is it's a free -- it's a place that's so free that people can protest. They can protest the president and did.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

How is ridiculing those who disagree with you in any way, shape or form uniting? Perhaps the only outlet more shameful than the White House is the media.

First, the run-up to the Tax Day tea parties was all but ignored. Then, on Tax Day the media — who couldn't resist a good Cindy Sheehan anti-war gathering of six people — weren't impressed by the outpouring. No, they mocked it:

(BEGIN MSNBC VIDEO CLIP)

JANEANE GAROFALO, ACTRESS: Let's be very honest about what this is about. It's not about bashing Democrats, it's not about taxes, they have no idea what the Boston tea party was about, they don't know their history at all. This is about hating a black man in the White House. This is racism straight up. That is nothing but a bunch of tea-bagging rednecks.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

(BEGIN CNN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MAN: Lincoln's primary thing was, he believed people had the right to liberty and had the right...

CNN CORRESPONDENT SUSAN ROESGEN: Sir, what does this have to do with taxes? What does this have to do with your taxes?

(CROSSTALK)

UNIDENTIFIED MAN: Let me finish my point.

ROESGEN: Do you realize that you're eligible for a $400 credit?

UNIDENTIFIED MAN: Lincoln believed that people had the right to share in the fruits of their own labor and that government should not take it. And we've clearly gotten to that point.

ROESGEN: But did you know that the state of Lincoln gets $50 billion out of the stimulus -- that's $50 billion for this state, sir.

I think you get the general tenor of this. It's anti-government, anti-CNN since this is highly promoted by the right-wing, conservative network FOX.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: When you see, you know, those of you who are watching certain news channels on which I am not very popular, and you see folks waving tea bags around, let me just remind them that I am happy to have a serious conversation.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Now, without the low-hanging fruit of a really crappy sex joke, the media just completely ignores the health care opponents, like a gathering in Columbus over the weekend -- 8,000 to 10,000 people completely ignored by the media.

Paula Abdul leaving "American Idol" is more interesting, I guess? And Michael Jackson is still dead.

Oh, I almost forgot, they'd cover this if it were real anger — but it's fake. They just "want a discussion," not pretend angry right-wing mobs.

You mean a discussion like the one you want on global warming, the stimulus or health care?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

FORMER VICE PRESIDENT AL GORE: If you look at the peer-reviewed scientific literature, the debate is over.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

WHITE HOUSE CHIEF OF STAFF RAHM EMANUEL: You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: Unless we act and act now, none of this will change.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

REP. JOHN CONYERS, JR., D-MICH.: I love these members, they get up and say, "read the bill." What good is reading the bill if it's 1,000 pages and you don't have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you've read the bill?

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Discussions, like the ones community organizers such as ACORN and unions like the SEIU have?

They don't want a discussion. They are using a Saul Alinsky tactic: Isolate a target and ridicule them. But these protesters aren't nut jobs. They are reasoned, regular people who know government health is a bad idea and the more people who know this fact, the less chance it has of passing.

Which is exactly why you'll see less of the regular, reasoned people like this:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: What I see is a bureaucratic nightmare, Senator. Medicaid is broke. Medicare is broke. Social Security is broke. And you want us to believe that a government that can't even run a "cash for clunkers" program is gonna run 1/7th of our U.S. economy. No, sir.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

And you'll keep seeing more people like this:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: I want to know, why are you people ignoring his birth certificate?

'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long': BlazeTV hosts react to historic Roe v. Wade decision

The Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe V. Wade, and the debate over abortion rights has been given back to the states. On this historic day, BlazeTV hosts celebrate the Supreme Court's incredible decision and take a look at some of the insane reactions as the left comes completely undone.

Jason Whitlock: Today will forever stand as a pivotal moment in our nation’s history

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. The decision and the reaction to it have already revealed a lot about our people and politics. Pro-life groups celebrate, pro-choice groups call for “a night of rage,” and Nancy Pelosi just seems completely confused by the United States Constitution.

Glenn Beck reacts LIVE to Roe v. Wade ruling: 'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long'

I never thought that in my lifetime, I would see Roe v. Wade be overturned. But today, that day has come. The Supreme Court has voted 6 to 3 to return decisions about abortion to the states. But this fight isn't over. We are about to see good versus evil side by side. Many states will stand with the unborn. But others will become abortion mills. It's your turn to choose now, America!

Allie Beth Stuckey: 'Praise God, Roe v. Wade is overturned!'

I don't know about you, but I just had the most euphoric feelings. It almost seems too good to be true. I didn't think there was any way that this would actually happen, especially with all the backlash, intimidation, and violence toward the Supreme Court justices. And yet, here we are. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This is an amazing day!

Dave Rubin: Big disagreement on what happens next now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

Dave Rubin, Libby Emmons, Jeffrey A. Tucker, and David Reaboi debate what will happen in the wake of the Supreme Court’s breaking decision on Roe v. Wade. Now that abortion rights have been pushed back to the states, will there be a summer of massive riots or not? Will the Roe v. Wade ruling make America’s political polarization significantly worse?

Stu Burguiere: Here are the reasons SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade

I never thought this would happen. I never thought I would see this day. I just never ever ever ever never ever believed that Roe v. Wade would actually be overturned. I really didn't. But let's take a look at the reasons this day has finally come ...

The Rick & Bubba Show: 'This is history! Unfortunately we're 60 million lives too late'

We were live on the air when news broke of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States overturned its controversial 1973 Roe v. Wadeopinion, concluding that there is no constitutional right to an abortion.

"The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives," the syllabus of the decision reads.

As expected, the leftist outrage erupted instantaneously, fueled largely by the misinformed idea that overturning Roe v. Wade means abortion will be banned nationwide. But, as stated in the above-mentioned Supreme Court syllabus, the authority has actually been returned to individual states and their duly elected lawmakers.

One such misinformed leftist, Parkland shooting survivor Cameron Kasky, was infuriated that those awful Supreme Court justices "just voted to kill women." So he took to Twitter to urge people to go to the homes of said Supreme Court justices to "let them know how you feel."

"Go to the home of every Supreme Court justice who just voted to kill women. Let them know how you feel," Kasky tweeted.

The backlash was immediate:

Kasky decided to delete his original tweet because he is apparently "sick of republicans talking to [him]." But, unfortunately for Kasky, the internet is indeed forever:

Speaking from the White House, President Joe Biden dutifully helped spread the misinformation about the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and took the opportunity to prompt voters to elect more Democrats in November so that Congress can write abortion protections into law. Did the president just let slip the real reason Congress hasn't made any effort to start writing such laws in the nearly two months since Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion was "leaked" in early May?

CNN reporter tries to 'ambush' GOP candidate Kari Lake, IMMEDIATELY regrets it

Image source: (left) Video screenshot/ (Right) Mario Tama/Getty Images

CNN senior national reporter Kyung Lah thought she'd caught Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake off guard when she asked for an impromptu interview outside an event, but ended up sorely regretting her decision.

Lake, a former Fox news anchor, shook hands with Lah as she approached and immediately pointed out that the CNN reporter wasn't wearing a mask any more, a barbed reference to a contentious interview in October 2021, in which Lah smeared the GOP candidate as a “rising star of the right-wing and proud spreader of lies." Lah asked if Lake had “a minute to chat.”

“I’ll do an interview," Lake answered, "as long as it airs on CNN+. Does that still exist? I didn’t think so, because the people don’t like what you guys are peddling, which is propaganda. Thank you.”

Lake then walked into the event, leaving Lah utterly speechless.

It looks like Lake gained quite a few fans on Twitter:

Kari Lake has been a longtime friend to "The Glenn Beck Program." She joined Glenn last August to tell Glenn why she left the corrupt world of media, what prompted her to enter "the even more corrupt world of politics," and how she plans to make a big difference in her battleground state of Arizona.

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Photo by Demetrius Freeman/The Washington Post via Getty Images

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."
