GLENN: Let me give you the story for the 9/12 tea party from the New York Times. A sea of protestors filled the west lawn of the Capitol and spilled into the National Mall on Saturday in the largest rally against President Obama since he took office. A culmination of summer‑long season of protests that began with opposition to healthcare overhaul and grew into a broader dissatisfaction with government. He went on to label the crowd angry and profane.
PAT: Evil. They're evil.
GLENN: Angry and profane, the tea parties. But the G‑20, fine.
PAT: I like the fact that they mentioned it was allowed, it was peaceful and ‑‑
PAT: Permitted, that's what that was.
GLENN: Peaceful and permitted.
GLENN: But no, no we were spilling into the streets.
STU: Well, the violence, though, isn't permitted. I mean, like, yes, the gathering might be permitted. But the whole point of this, you know, look at any of the footage. I mean, you can see that there is actual violence going on and vandalism constantly.
GLENN: How about blowing up of radio station towers? Last Friday? Did anyone see that in the national news? The only reason why I know it is because I was there! Did Glenn Beck just say he did violence? Weren't radio station towers blown up in Los Angeles like three weeks ago?
PAT: Somewhere in California, yeah.
GLENN: Can you check on that I believe ELF or ALF blew up radio station towers within the last month in Los Angeles as well. Now, why is it that an actual terrorist organization, an actual terrorist organization, ELF and ALF, that have done actual damage, have blown up buildings, set things on fire, blown up radio station towers, how is it that that gets absolutely no coverage, none whatsoever? Especially when our governmental leaders are the ones saying, "And if we stop now, the Earth will die." Who's causing fear that causes people to act?
PAT: Speaker of the House just broke down and wept. What was that, last week, week before?
GLENN: Well, she had seen violence before.
PAT: Oh, she had seen violence.
PELOSI: I have concerns about some of the language that is being used because I saw ‑‑
PAT: The language.
PELOSI: I saw this myself in the late Seventies in San Francisco.
GLENN: Yes, she did.
PELOSI: This kind of rhetoric was very frightening and it gave a climate in which violence took place.
PAT: Nevermind, okay, the language. Nevermind the actual explosive.
GLENN: It's absolutely incredible.
GLENN: Now, I was in Seattle. I was at Safeco Field. There was one person that was quoted in the newspaper the next day when I got the key to the city to Mount Vernon, which is my hometown of 30,000. By the way, the left gathered signatures of 16,000 people in a town of 31,000. Isn't that incredible?
PAT: Over half of them signed?
GLENN: Over half of them ‑‑ well, they didn't actually sign. You could go online and you could just sign. You could sign ‑‑
PAT: But it was limited only to Mount Vernon?
GLENN: No, no, you could sign from anywhere, anywhere, yeah. But there were protestors there, I believe about 60% of them were pro‑Glenn protestors. They were protesting the people who were protesting. God love you. But I read a story where it said one lady ‑‑ and they didn't find any irony in this in the Seattle Times. One lady said, you know what, Glenn Beck and mayor Bud Norris doesn't speak for me. That mayor Bud Norris, he sure doesn't speak tore me. I had to be here. That's why she drove from her home in Oregon. Yes, the mayor of Mount Vernon, Washington doesn't speak for you. You are right. You are right on that one.
STU: It would be really weird if he did.
GLENN: Jeez, for the love of Pete.
STU: We want this pothole fixed in Oregon!
GLENN: There were 40 protestors in front of Safeco Field. They got top billing. 40 protestors. Top billing.
STU: I saw pictures of ‑‑
PAT: Did you have 15 inside ‑‑
STU: I saw the photos from inside. There were thousands.
PAT: 20, 25 people?
GLENN: We had over half that. We had over half.
PAT: You had over half?
GLENN: Yeah, we had seven... thousand people, we had 7,000 people in Safeco Field that came to hear me speak and talk about the Evergreen Freedom Foundation, which is an absolutely fantastic organization. And yet, I knew it when I saw her. Who did the news talk to and interview? A woman in a red, white and blue finger hat. Okay? The Seattle, the Seattle P‑I or the ‑‑ I can't remember if the Seattle Times or P‑I, one of them, they had the big huge picture on the front page of... a lady who came dressed as the Statue of Liberty.
PAT: Oh, that's so wrong.
GLENN: There were actual business people there. There were actual, you know, regular people who came in regular clothing. In fact, about 6,997 of them were dressed normally, and they wonder, they wonder why their subscriptions are going down and no one's paying attention to them.
