Arguing with Idiots: How to Stop Small Minds and Big Government
by Glenn Beck
GLENN: The NEA has just fired Yosi Sergant yet again. They have put the wrong head on the wall. The NEA, Deutsche any of the audio in your audio vault here, Pat, of the NEA? Dan, do you?
PAT: I think Dan has it.
GLENN: The audio from the NEA, when we first brought it up. Stu, see if you can do a search for NEA and me. I don't even know when it was, two months ago maybe, a month and a half ago when I was bringing up the NEA. It wasn't even that long ago. Four, five weeks ago? I don't even have a concept of time anymore. It was about, it was I think the same week that we did the Rockefeller Plaza stuff where they then claimed that I wanted people to blow up Rockefeller Plaza. I work in Rockefeller Plaza! I have always wanted to work at Rockefeller Plaza. I don't hate the art in Rockefeller Plaza. Come to my office and see the art in my office. I love the art of Rockefeller Plaza. These pinheads just cannot ‑‑ I mean, we're the dumb ones? Really? I guess concepts are just too big for them to get their arms around. Blow up art! That's all they hear.
The NEA, the NEA was having a conference call orchestrated by Yosi Sergant. On the conference call ‑‑ and we know this because somebody was on that conference call, taped it and tipped off bigHollywood.com. They tipped us off. And so what happens? In the conference call they are saying look, you know, we've got to be really careful with our language here, we're trying to figure out legally how we can do all of this stuff. But listen. You know, just maybe you want to do some art that, you know, makes the president look good and the administration and, you know, push healthcare and cap and trade. Can you work on some of that art? Sixteen out of the twenty people that were on that phone call have received grants from the NEA. That's your money. When I first brought it up, oh, he's on a Hitler hunt again; oh, look at Beck; oh, we're doing propaganda now. But now, last week Yosi Sergant steps aside. Keep the pressure on, keep the pressure on. What is it, the ‑‑ this is from the ‑‑ is this the Washington Post or what is this one? No, this is Politics Daily. Politics Daily, Washington in 60 seconds. In the news, Glenn Beck can put another head on his wall. Yosi Sergant, the former communications director for the National Endowment For the Arts resigned his job yesterday. The AP reports that Beck called out Sergant for suggesting to artists on an NEA conference call various ways they can help the Obama administration's goals including healthcare reform.
Okay. First of all, I think we need to start collecting heads. Do you notice that people are saying I'm collecting scalps, I'm collecting heads? I'm doing none of them. I'm not calling for the firing of any of these people. I'm calling for an investigation. I'm calling for answers from the White House. I don't want the people at the bottom end of the spectrum of ACORN fired. I want to look at the people at the top. Let's start looking at the people at the top of the pyramid. They're the ones controlling it all. Yosi Sergant? Yosi Sergant isn't the one who did this. Do you think Yosi Sergant is a guy who was just like, yep, well, I did the whole poster and, you know, I thought maybe I could do some more with the NEA. That's not what happened. We have ties and audio evidence of the tie directly to Barack Obama's best friend, Valerie Jarrett. She, everything including Van Jones, passed through her hands. Where is anybody talking about Valerie Jarrett? And by the way, I don't think Yosi Sergant is black, is he? Did I mistakenly go after a white guy? I thought he was black. I thought I was only targeting black people. How did that happen? You know what, I ‑‑
PAT: You want to take everything back?
GLENN: I want to take everything back. It is about the system. It's about the system.
