Glenn Beck: What's Complicated About Tea Party Movement?




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

Why is it that no one in the fringe media can get the tea parties right?

Is it really that tough to figure out why so many people are willing to take precious time out of their busy lives to make their voices heard?

Is it really that complex?

Is it really so difficult to comprehend that people become concerned when their president sets out a mission to "fundamentally transform" the country?

And is it hard to believe so many citizens would recoil at the president's use of the high-pressure tactic of "Act Now!" and respond by saying: "Wait, wait, wait — can you slow down and explain that one a little bit more please?"

Do the people in the media not see their children's future and say, "I don't know how there is a country left for my children, because of all the spending?" Do they not look at the numbers in their own news reports and say, "Wait, that doesn't add up"?

Is it impossible for the media to believe that even those who voted for Obama and want some of the things he talked about, have realized maybe we can't afford all of this right now?

Is there no one that can understand that?

Is there no one in the media who reported on the cries of "Halliburton!" over and over again, that sees ACORN and SEIU and the Apollo Alliance and how president is using them?

THEN-ILLINOIS STATE SENATOR BARACK OBAMA: The Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth… the tragedies of the civil rights movement was, um, because the civil rights movement became so court focused I think there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to pull together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change.

Do they not see that:

— On the "czars:" It's not a political witch hunt. Americans are just not comfortable with radicals having unchecked authority.

— On health care: If Americans are promised an open and honest debate before overhauling the system — when that promise isn't kept, they ask questions.

— On bailouts and government spending: Americans want to see the government live and play by the same rules they do. Bad investment? Live with the consequences. If you don't have the money, don't spend it.

Can they not see that point of view?

I believe they can see it and they do get it, but they are part of the problem. I'm trying to bring you the truth and I'm trying to understand the world we live in.

And here is some of the reality we face:

— When a major health care company informs its customers of its concerns about health care legislation, they are investigated and threatened with legal action and told by the government to be quiet.

— When regular people oppose government run health care and let their voices be heard at town halls and tea parties, they are labeled "angry mobs" and "teabaggers" and domestic terrorists and gun-toting radicals. And as more people stand up, they will only continue to paint you into the bad guy.

Here's I think the most disturbing thing yet: While they are doing that, they've used the National Endowment for the Arts to make propaganda — we have the audio of the call coming from the White House.

And on top of that, they are now indoctrinating our children. We showed you a video this week — "The Story of Stuff":

NARRATOR: Well, let's start with the government. Now my friends tell me I should use a tank to symbolize the government and that's true in many countries and increasingly in our own — after all more than 50 percent of our federal tax money is now going to the military. But I'm using a person to symbolize the government because I hold true to the vision and values that governments should be of the people, by the people, for the people.

Telling our children that America is a bad place? That movie's paid for by the Tides Foundation and comes out of Berkeley, California, and it's all over our schools.

And then we also have school kids singing a song about Barack Hussein Obama:

CHILDREN SINGING: Mm, mmm, mm!


Barack Hussein Obama

He said that all must lend a hand


To make this country strong again


Mmm, mmm, mm!


Barack Hussein Obama

He said we must be fair today


Equal work means equal pay


Mmm, mmm, mm!


Barack Hussein Obama

He said that we must take a stand


To make sure everyone gets a chance


Mmm, mmm, mm!


Barack Hussein Obama

He said red, yellow, black or white


All are equal in his sight


Mmm, mmm, mm!


Barack Hussein Obama

(END VIDEO CLIP)

We're all equal in his sight — as in Barack Obama's sight! And they wonder why people are in the streets?

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

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:
