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




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays 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?

For weeks now, our political leaders and the media have been repeating the World Health Organization's claim that non-medical-grade face masks don't work when it comes to preventing the spread of COVID-19. So, why are infectious disease experts now reconsidering their guidelines?

According to the New York Times, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Robert Redfield, said the guidance on wearing non-medical masks is "being critically re-reviewed, to see if there's potential additional value for individuals that are infected or individuals that may be asymptomatically infected."

In actuality, they didn't trust the American people to do the right thing and prioritize healthcare workers to receive masks first, opined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday. But they do work, and "if we're going to open the country up, we are going to all have to wear face masks," he said.

William "Bill" Kelly is 95-year-old World War II veteran from Oregon. He lived through the Great Depression.
He served in the South Pacific during World War II. And now he has just fought the coronavirus -- and won.

Bill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to share his experience and a hopeful message about why the younger generations can overcome this crisis.

"I want to tell the people, it wasn't pleasant, but on the other hand, you know, if you do what you're supposed to do, and you have some loved ones around you, and do a lot of praying, why, you'll come through okay. We [American's] have been through a lot. We've been through Pearl Harbor. We've been through the Great Depression, and who knows what else. We're tough. We'll get through it. Hang in there," Bill said.

"You know, it's just -- it's in our American blood," he added. "We're that type of people. We take care of each other, and we are not going to break down. We're going to make it through, every time. Every time."

"There are people that don't think we are those people anymore. That it was the greatest generation -- your generation -- that did it, but now we're not the same people. Do you agree with that? Glenn asked.

"No," asserted Bill. "And the reason I say that is because I remember when I was a young kid, you know, and people, the older people, said 'all those young kids are soft' ... but when we were attacked at Pearl Harbor -- sneak attack, you know -- it's surprising how those so-called goofy kids turned into mighty fine fighting people. And they're very loyal. I have lots of faith in them ... no, I don't have any problems with this new generation. They'll take care of us. We're Americans."

COVID-19 Now Killing Victims Who Don't Have COVID-19 https://nypost.com/2020/04/02/coronavirus-nyc-emts-stop-taking-cardiac-arrest-patients-to-hospitals/
  • EMTs in New York have been given a directive not to transport heart-attack victims to hospitals if they cannot be revived at the scene.
  • Prior cardiac arrest victims would have been transported to hospitals for further life-saving procedures, but with hospitals being overwhelmed with COVID-19 patients, heart attack victims are solely in the hands of local EMTs. If EMTs cannot restore a pulse at the scene, victims are to be left there to die.
  • "Artificial ventilation and/or compressions must not be delayed," the memo states, adding that chest "compressions must begin as soon as it is determined the patient does not have a pulse."
  • But the guidelines change if the patient cannot be revived before arriving at a hospital.
  • "In the event a resuscitation is terminated, and the body is in public view, the body can be left in the custody of the NYPD."
China Lied, People Died Trending on Social Media https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-04-01/china-concealed-extent-of-virus-outbreak-u-s-intelligence-says
  • US Intelligence Services has concluded what the Internet has known since January: The Chinese Communist Party lied about total infected and total deaths due to Coronavirus.
  • Citing a report provided to the White House last week, officials confirmed that US Intelligence concludes 'gross' underreporting of total cases and total deaths, especially from Hubei Province.
  • Many have speculated that numbers coming out of China, Iran, North Korea, Russia and other totalitarian countries have been dramatically underreported, by as much as a factor of 10 according to official British Intelligence reports.
  • The early misrepresentation of data by the CCP may have lead some Western Politicians and epidemiologists to underestimate the seriousness of COVID-19 and delayed response in Italy, Spain, the UK and the US.
  • Though why anybody would have believed anything the Chinese Communist Party had to say remains an open question...
Italy's Death Toll Far Higher Than Reported https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/italys-coronavirus-death-toll-is-far-higher-than-reported/ar-BB122vvc
  • In the town of Coccaglio, an hour's drive east of here, the local nursing home lost over a third of its residents in March. None of the 24 people who died there were tested for the new coronavirus. Nor were the 38 people who died in another nursing home in the nearby town of Lodi.
  • These aren't isolated incidents. Italy's official death toll from the virus stands at 13,155, the most of any country in the world. But that number tells only part of the story because many people who die from the virus don't make it to the hospital and are never tested, therefore they aren't included in official numbers.
  • "They were all sick, they all had flu-like symptoms and difficulty breathing," stated a nurse from one of the nursing homes. "We had no ambulance to get them to Milan."
  • In the areas worst hit by the pandemic, Italy is undercounting thousands of deaths caused by the virus, a Wall Street Journal analysis shows, indicating that the pandemic's human toll may end up being much greater, and infections far more widespread, than official data indicate.
  • As stretched and sometimes overwhelmed hospitals fight to save their patients, many other people die unseen and uncounted, including elderly people in out-of-the-way locations.
  • In addition, the health-care crisis can lead to a surge of deaths from other causes that would normally be treatable.
  • "There are many more dead from the virus than are officially declared... People died and they were never tested because time and resources are limited," Eugenio Fossati, deputy mayor of Coccaglio, says of deaths caused by the virus.
More Numbers Hard to Trust as Bodies Left On The Streets in Ecuador https://www.scmp.com/news/world/americas/article/3078077/coronavirus-bodies-are-being-left-streets-ecuador
  • Coronavirus: bodies are being left on the streets in Ecuador.
  • 'They fall in front of hospitals or in back street alleys, or in small villages…no one wants to recover them,' says the mayor of Ecuador's largest city.
  • The army is placing unclaimed bodies in refrigerated cargo containers at the port while authorities pursue plans for a new cemetery.
  • The corpses have been overwhelming Guayaquil, a port city of 2.8 million at the epicenter of the coronavirus crisis in Ecuador.
  • Over the last few days, several were wrapped in plastic and left on the streets. Others have lain unclaimed in hospitals and clinics that have been overwhelmed by infections. The city morgue is full.
  • The majority of the dead are believed to be victims of the virus, but nobody can say for sure how many. There has been little testing.
  • The country has confirmed 2,700 infections and 93 deaths - 60 of them in Guayaquil and its immediate surroundings. But municipal officials there said they have recovered at least 400 bodies in the last 3 days.
  • Mayor Cynthia Viteri, who announced that she has also tested positive for the virus, said the national government should be responsible for collecting the corpses.
  • "They're leaving them in the villages, they are stacked in front of hospitals," she said in a Twitter video message to residents late last week.
  • Many local villages in Ecuador are simply burying the dead in unmarked graves, which will make official counting of COVID-19 victims impossible in the weeks ahead.
50% of Viral Spread Comes from People With No Symptoms https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/01/health/us-coronavirus-updates-wednesday/index.html
  • Researchers in Iceland have confirmed earlier reports from Hong Kong that a significant amount of viral spread is caused by carriers who have no symptoms.
  • In the US, Doctors at the CDC have confirmed asymptomatic spread, but estimate a number of about 25%.
  • If true, then the case for all persons to wear masks, even those who don't have symptoms, becomes much stronger.
  • To prevent further spread, the top infectious disease expert in the US says health officials are reconsidering guidance on face masks.
  • Dr. Anthony Fauci said he would "lean towards" recommending that the general public wear face masks "if we do not have the problem of taking away masks from the health care workers who need them. The public can stay home to avoid infection, but health care workers cannot," he said.
  • "We're not there yet, but I think we're close to coming to some determination," Fauci said.
Ship vs Train... Ship Wins https://abc7.com/usns-mercy-coronavirus-train-crash-derailment/6069395/
  • A Locomotive Engineer in Los Angeles has been charged with 1 Count of "Train Wrecking", a Class A Felony under Federal Law, after purposely derailing his freight train while attempting to sink the US Hospital ship Mercy.
  • Eduardo Moreno, 44, intended to hit the ship, saying he thought it was "suspicious" and did not believe "the ship is what they say it's for.'"
  • Moreno admitted to crashing the train intentionally but said he did not plan it out in advance. It is believed that he acted alone.
  • He allegedly made statements to a CHP officer that included "You only get this chance once. The whole world is watching. I had to. People don't know what's going on here. Now they will."
  • Officials say video from inside the train's cab shows Moreno holding a lighted flare during the incident.
Biggest Issue With COVID-19 in Malaysia: Nagging Wives https://www.npr.org/2020/04/01/825051317/dont-nag-your-husband-during-lock-down-malaysias-government-advises-women
  • Malaysia has the largest number of COVID-19 cases in Southeast Asia with more than 2,900 and counting.
  • This week, Malaysia's government also had a serious public relations issue after an ill-conceived plan went online.
  • Malaysia's Ministry for Women, Family and Community Development issued a series of online posters on Facebook and Instagram with the hashtag #WomenPreventCOVID19. It advised the nation's women to help with the country's partial lockdown by not nagging their husbands.
  • The ministry also advised women to refrain from being "sarcastic" if they asked for help with household chores.
  • Additionally, the Ministry urged women working from home to dress up and wear makeup.
  • After some negative response on social media, the public service messages have been removed from the Ministry's Facebook page.

MyPillow inventor and CEO Mike Lindell was lambasted by the left and mainstream media after he announced at a White House press briefing on Monday that his company will start making tens of thousands of masks to fight against the spread of coronavirus. Lindell also thanked God for President Donald Trump and encouraged Americans to turn back to God in this time of crisis.

Read the details here.

Whether it was his support for President Trump or strong religious beliefs, no one has lit up the media quite like Mike Lindell. He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to talk about the president, the 'horrible, crazy media' and how he's not afraid to keep speaking out about his faith.

"I think people are going to quit being brainwashed by this horrible, crazy media -- they know who they are -- and the public is going to see the amazing job that our president is doing," Lindell said. "I've done interview after interview today. I'm taking all the bad ones on -- I think I'm going on 'The View' tomorrow I love it. I want to go right into the hurricane. Finally, I get to speak out for Jesus like I want to."
