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:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

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?

Shortly after appearing on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" last Thursday, Los Angeles-based emergency medicine specialist Dr. Simone Gold got a call saying she was fired for speaking out about the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in a now-banned viral video.

Dr. Gold returned to the radio program Monday to detail exactly what happened, the reason the hospitals gave for her firing, and how they threatened to fire her colleagues as well if she "didn't go quietly."

"Most emergency physicians work at more than one [hospital], as I do, and I've actually been fired from both," she told Glenn. "They told me that I appeared in an embarrassing video, and therefore, I would no longer be welcome to work there ... then they said, if I didn't go quietly and I made a fuss, they would have all the doctors in the group, you know, they'd have to go and they'll get a whole new doctor group."

Dr. Gold said she does not regret speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during the controversial "White Coat Summit" news conference held in Washington, D.C., last week. A video of the news conference quickly went viral on social media before being removed by Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and others for allegedly making false claims related to COVID-19.

"Bring it on," she said. "I want to continue to live in America. I want my children to continue to live in America. I don't want them to grow up in a place like China. When you get to a point where, not only can I not speak as a scientist, as a doctor, for what I know to be absolutely true, but you then want to cancel me and my colleagues, this is not okay. I would much rather fight than not fight ... and I want everybody to know that there are literally millions and millions of Americans who are on our side. Millions. I believe it's the majority."

Glenn then asked Dr. Gold to weigh in on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's new guidelines encouraging schools to reopen in the fall and the left's relentless drive to keep them closed.

"There's no actual scientific debate whatsoever if schools should open. None. There's no scientific debate. There's no serious person who thinks schools shouldn't open. Now, [through] some governors and policy makers, there's pressure being brought to bear on school districts, but there's no actual scientific debate. So it's going to come down to parents pressuring their local school districts to act in a responsible fashion."

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld joined Glenn on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to talk about his new book, "The Plus: Self-Help for People Who Hate Self-Help."

Greg admits he is probably the last person who should write a self-help book. Nevertheless, he offers his offbeat advice on how to save America during what has become one of the most tumultuous times in history, as well as drinking while tweeting (spoiler: don't do it).

He also shares his "evolution" on President Donald Trump, his prediction for the election, and what it means to be an agnostic-atheist.

In this clip, Greg shares what he calls his "first great epiphany" on how dangerous cancel culture has become.

"I believe that cancel culture is the first successful work-around of the First Amendment," he said. "Because freedom of speech doesn't protect me from my career being ruined, my livelihood being destroyed, or me getting so depressed I commit suicide. Cancel culture is the first successful work-around of freedom of speech. It can oppress your speech with the scepter of destruction. We don't have freedom of speech anymore."

Dr. Simone Gold joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to set the record straight about hydroxychloroquine -- what it is, how it works, and the real reason for all the current controversy surrounding a centuries-old medication.

Dr. Gold is a board certified emergency physician. She graduated from Chicago Medical School before attending Stanford University Law School. She completed her residency in emergency medicine at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York, and worked in Washington D.C. for the Surgeon General, as well for the chairman of the Committee on Labor and Human Resources. She works as an emergency physician on the front lines, whether or not there is a pandemic, and her clinical work serves all Americans from urban inner city to suburban and the Native American population. Her legal practice focuses on policy issues relating to law and medicine.

She is also the founder of America's frontline doctors, a group of doctors who have been under attack this week for speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during a news conference held outside the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

On the program, Dr. Gold emphasized that the controversy over hydroxychloroquine is a "complete myth."

"Hydroxychloroquine is an analogue or a derivative of quinine, which is found in tree bark. It's the most noncontroversial of medications that there is," she explained.

"It's been around for centuries and it's been FDA-approved in the modern version, called hydroxychloroquine, for 65 years. In all of that time, [doctors] used it for breast-feeding women, pregnant women, elderly, children, and immune compromised. The typical use is for years or even decades because we give it mostly to RA, rheumatoid arthritis patients and lupus patients who need to be on it, essentially, all of their life. So, we have extensive experience with it ... it's one of the most commonly used medications throughout the world."

Dr. Gold told Glenn she was surprised when the media suddenly "vomited all over hydroxychloroquine", but initially chalked it up to the left's predictable hatred for anything President Donald Trump endorses. However, when the media gave the drug Remdesivir glowing reviews, despite disappointing clinical trial results, she decided to do some research.

"[Remdesivir] certainly wasn't a fabulous drug, but the media coverage was all about how fabulous it was. At that moment, I thought that was really weird. Because it's one thing to hate hydroxychloroquine because the president [endorsed] it. But it's another thing to give a free pass to another medicine that doesn't seem that great. I thought that was really weird, so I started looking into it. And let me tell you, what I discovered was absolutely shocking," she said.

According to the mainstream media's COVID-19 narrative, the president is "ignoring" the crisis.

On tonight's "Glenn TV" special, Glenn Beck exposes the media's last four months of political theater that has helped shape America's confusion and fear over coronavirus. And now, with a new school year looming on the horizon, the ongoing hysteria has enormous ramifications for our children, but the media is working overtime to paint the Trump administration as anti-science Neanderthals who want to send children and teachers off to die by reopening schools.

Glenn fights back with the facts and interviews the medical doctor Big Tech fears the most. Dr. Simone Gold, founder of America's Frontline Doctors, stands up to the media's smear campaign and explains why she could no longer stay silent in her fight against coronavirus fear.
