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?

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:

Imagine sometime next year, getting called before HUWAC – the House Un-Woke Activities Committee.

"Are you or have you ever been a member of the un-woke?"

Something like that is not as far-fetched as you might think.

Last week, Robert Reich, the former Secretary of Labor during the Clinton administration, now a UC Berkeley professor, tweeted this:

Since the 1970s, there have been dozens of "Truth Commissions" around the world like the kind Robert Reich wants in America. Most of these have been set up in Africa and Latin America. Usually it happens in countries after a civil war, or where there's been a regime change – a dictator is finally overthrown, and a commission is set up to address atrocities that happened under the dictator. Or, as in the commissions in East Germany and Czechoslovakia, atrocities under communism. Or, in the most famous example, South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation commission addressed the decades of apartheid that ravaged that nation.

These commissions usually conclude with an official final report. These commissions and reports have served as a means of governments trying to close a dark chapter of their country's history, or provide emotional catharsis, as a way to generally move on. Sometimes it kind of works for people, most of the time it leaves people clamoring for more justice.

Here's how one professor described truth commissions in an article in The Conversation last year. He wrote:

The goal of a truth commission… is to hold public hearings to establish the scale and impact of a past injustice, typically involving wide-scale human rights abuses, and make it part of the permanent, unassailable public record. Truth commissions also officially recognize victims and perpetrators in an effort to move beyond the painful past… Some have been used cynically as tools for governments to legitimize themselves by pretending they have dealt with painful history when they have only kicked the can down the road.

See, this is the problem with a lot of "Truth" commissions – they are inherently political. Even if you trust your government and give them all the benefit of the doubt in the world that their Truth commission is trying to do the right thing, it is ALWAYS going to be political. Because these truth commissions are never set up by those who have LOST power in government. They're always established by those who have WON power.

The Deputy Executive Director of the International Center for Transitional Justice says one of the main points in these Truth commissions is that "the victims become protagonists."

A Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility.

So, who are the victims in Robert Reich's America? People like him, members of the far-Left who had to endure the atrocities of four years of a president with different political ideas. What an injustice. I mean, the left's suffering during the Trump administration is almost on the level of apartheid or genocide – so we totally need a Truth commission.

There have been lots of calls for the U.S. to have its own Truth and Reconciliation commission, especially around racial injustice.

This past June, Democratic Congresswoman Barbara Lee of California introduced legislation to establish the " United States Commission on Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation."

Ibram X. Kendi – the high priest of anti-racism, and author of Target's current favorite book " Antiracist Baby" – proposes a Constitutional anti-racism amendment. This amendment would:

establish and permanently fund the Department of Anti-racism (DOA) comprised of formally trained experts on racism and no political appointees. The DOA would be responsible for pre-clearing all local, state and federal public policies to ensure they won't yield racial inequity, monitor those policies, investigate private racist policies when racial inequity surfaces, and monitor public officials for expressions of racist ideas. The DOA would be empowered with disciplinary tools to wield over and against policymakers and public officials who do not voluntarily change their racist policy and ideas.

If you think that is far-fetched, you haven't been paying attention to the Left's growing radicalism. In a Joe Biden-Kamala Harris administration, a Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility. And of course, such a DOA would never stop at policing government.

We're in a dangerous, precarious moment in our history. Given the events of 2020, should Democrats gain the White House, the Senate, and the House, how many commissions will be in our future? They will suddenly have plenty of political capital to drag the nation through years of commission hearings.

And the Left's form of justice is never satisfied. You think it will stop at a T&R commission on race? MSNBC's Chris Hayes tweeted this month about the need for a commission to deal with Americans who are skeptical about wearing masks:

Or what about a Truth commission on religion? I mean, look at those reckless churches spreading Covid this year. Or this would be a big one – a T&R commission on climate change deniers.

The Left is highly selective when it comes to truth. That's why they are the very last group you want in charge of anything with "Truth and Reconciliation" in the title.

This is one of the most incredibly frustrating things about the Left in America today. The Left insists there is no such thing as absolute truth, while simultaneously insisting there are certain approved truths that are undeniable.

So, you can't question "Science" – even though that's pretty much what every great scientist in history did.

You can't question racism as the explanation for all of existence – because, well, just because.

You can't question third-party "Fact-checkers" – because the powers that be, mainly Big Tech right now, have decided they are the Truth referees and you have to trust what they say because they're using certified external fact-checkers. They just forgot to tell you that they actually fund these third-party fact-checkers. It's like if McDonald's told you to trust third-party health inspectors that they were paying for.

The Left thinks it has a monopoly on Truth. They're the enlightened ones, because they've had the correct instruction, they're privy to the actual facts. It's psychotic arrogance. If you don't buy what they're selling, even if you're just skeptical of it, it's because you either don't have the facts, you willingly deny the facts, or you're simply incapable of grasping the truth because you're blinded by your raging racism problem. It's most likely the racism problem.

The Left never learns from its own preaching. For the past 60-plus years they've decried the House Un-American Activities Committee for trying to root out communists, getting people canceled, ruining Hollywood careers, etcetera. But a HUAC-type committee is precisely what Robert Reich is describing and many on the Left want. It's not enough for Trump to be voted out of office. Americans who helped put him there must be punished. They don't want reconciliation, they want retribution. Because the Left doesn't simply loathe Donald Trump, the Left loathes YOU.

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?
