Protestor Interrupts Spector Town Hall Meeting
GLENN: 888 727 BECK. Earlier today Arlen Specter had a healthcare event and it was wonderful. Stu I'm trying to do Pat's Arlen Specter.
GLENN: Yeah, do your little, that there was a little confrontation there, Pat.
PAT: Well, there was a little confrontation (mumbling).
GLENN: How long did it take you to get Arlen Specter down like that?
PAT: About 15 seconds, Glenn. (Mumbling). Just put your tongue way back in your mouth.
GLENN: Hang on a second.
PAT: Then you kind of make your mouth big and fat.
GLENN: It really doesn't sound like doesn't sound like it. It doesn't work.
PAT: Then you need a little bit of rasp in your voice. And you know that he's... (mumbling).
GLENN: Here we go. Here's a little bit from the town hall.
STU: Yeah, we should explain. There's a town hall meeting. There is a guy that rises up. He is against Obamacare and he's getting pretty fired up here and as you'll hear, there's a little bit of a confrontation with another person who apparently is for Obamacare, tries to stop him from speaking and then a confrontation ensues from there.
GLENN: Okay. Here we go.
SPECTER: You want to be let out of here, you're welcome to go. Now wait a minute, now wait a minute. Now wait a minute. Now wait a minute. Wait, wait a minute. Wait a minute.
VOICE: I have right to
SPECTER: Wait a minute. Wait a minute. He has a right to leave. He is right. Wait a minute, wait a minute.
GLENN: I mean, so far Arlen Specter has made a very good point so far. He has really... "Wait a minute, wait a minute."
PAT: Wait a minute action wait a minute.
GLENN: I don't understand. Is he saying he has a constitutional right to leave? So in other words he is saying I'm not holding you hostage? Is that what he's saying?
STU: Yeah. And he's saying if there's a minute, you should wait through it.
GLENN: All right. Go ahead.
SPECTER: Wait a minute. You want to leave? Leave.

VOICE: I am going to speak my mind before I leave because your people told me I could. I called your office and I was told I could have the mic to speak. And then I was lied to because I came prepared to speak and instead you wouldn't let anybody speak. You handed out, what, 30 cards? Well, I got news for you. You and your cronies in the government do this kind of stuff all the time. Well... (applause)... I don't care, I don't care how much, I'm not a lobbyist with all kind of money to stuff it in your pocket so that you can cheat the citizens of this country. So I'll leave. And you can do whatever the hell you please to do. One day God's going to stand before you and he's going to judge you.
PAT: It should be the other way around.
VOICE: Your cronies up on the hill.
GLENN: Hold on a second. There's a little controversy brewing in the studio. Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. There's a controversy.
STU: What's the
GLENN: There's a controversy here.
STU: People can call in now.
GLENN: What's the controversy?
PAT: I'm thinking that the guy is going to stand that Specter will stand before God, not the other way around.
GLENN: I'm sorry. Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute, wait, just wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. I believe you don't understand who Arlen Specter is.
STU: Well, I just want to say that
GLENN: Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. Barack Obama may only have planet like powers like his own gravitational field, but Arlen Specter, when he gets up, the Lord will say, "Oh, Arlen, it's not, I didn't realize oh, you're back. I here, I think this is your seat. I've just been keeping it warm." Now, can we not at least come together on things like that, that the government, the servants, if you will, are truly the master?
STU: Sure, I think so.
STU: If you don't mind, I'm just going to leave here and go to the bathroom.
GLENN: No, wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute.
STU: I have to go.
GLENN: He has a constitutional right to go to the bathroom.
STU: I know, I'm just going to tinkle and I just would like to
GLENN: Wait a minute. You have a constitutional right to tinkle.
STU: Okay, I appreciate you
GLENN: Now, is there something you want to say before you go tinkle or you are just being
STU: Well, I was told that I was able to speak on this program.
GLENN: Who told you these things?
STU: Well, your people, they told me that on a piece of paper.
GLENN: I don't have people. I don't have people. Why are you abusing the elderly like this? Why you and your angry mob come into my studio and then want to pee all over my studio, your words, not mine, and then
STU: I didn't say that.
GLENN: And then call us liars? Why the hatred?
STU: But I'm a somewhat elderly gentleman with a piece of paper and I don't think that
GLENN: See, this is the thing they don't understand. They just don't understand in Washington. You could hear it in that man's voice. He has been so disenfranchised. "You go do whatever it is you're going to do." That was the key. This was the turning point. Remember I told you I think it was about a year or so ago. I said study the Weimar Republic. Study the Weimar Republic. What I learned in my study of the Weimar Republic is, well, two things well, three things, a lot of things, you know, like Germans, boy, they screw things up an awful lot. That's kind of a big umbrella. But also, you know, "Hey, let's not print our own money." But the most important thing I learned well, I can't say it's the most important thing. "Germans screw things up a lot" maybe the most important thing. That, and never get the Germans and the Italians together. Bad.
One of the things I learned was once the people feel like they don't make a difference and that they whatever they do won't affect their own life, that's when you get into real trouble. That's when you get into real danger. Don't you believe it. Don't you let anybody around you believe it. I'm telling you there is great hope for this country. I am telling you that there is great the Constitution will survive. Those who come against the Constitution, it will not last. The Constitution will survive. Americans will not only survive but they will thrive and they will be free. When America wakes up to God, when America wakes up and says, "Oh, I remember the order here; oh, I know we can't have everything for free; oh, there is such a thing called personal responsibility," that's when we'll say to somebody who says, wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute, we'll say, now we're done waiting; get the hell out.
STU: That's a very interesting point, Glenn.
GLENN: I don't know why the
STU: It's because we have a hard break here. We have a hard break. We should probably
GLENN: Is that what it is?
PAT: Maybe you should talk a little bit longer, Glenn.
GLENN: That was such a good place to end it.
PAT: I agree. It would have been nice to end about 10 minutes ago before you started babbling. But you do have the right to continue to speak until the break is here.
STU: Well, I think the truth is, Glenn, you wanted to leave but then we needed to tell you wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute.
PAT: Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. You and your paid political advisors sending me down here with all kinds of cash in your pocket to start hassling me, subverting the Democratic process. I won't have it. I won't stand for it.
GLENN: Can I ask you something? If we start not shaving our armpits, women, and everybody start passing out flowers, can we start being called the mob? Is that what it takes?
