Glenn Beck: Chairman Anita




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p and 2a ET on the Fox News Channel...

GLENN: The other pressure that he is receiving is from our side. Now, I want to play the audio of Anita Dunn. This is what we released yesterday. Anita Dunn is the woman who was put in charge by Rahm ‑‑ by someone in the White House to watch Fox News and destroy. That was her job: Seek and destroy, smear, take him out. It came out into the Washington Post yesterday in the style section, and I believe this was a, this was a ‑‑ who does a news story in the style section on Anita Dunn, the woman who is set to take out Fox News?

STU: Well, if you've seen the video of her, she's very stylish.

GLENN: She is very stylish.

STU: When I think style ‑‑

GLENN: I got it, I got it. So who puts that in the style section? That is someone in the White House, that's Rahm ‑‑ that's somebody in the White House calling the Washington Post and saying, "I need to, I need to have this story in. They are not going to put it in the regular news section because that way the White House can't massage it. Because even bad journalists at the Washington Post have some standards. So they put it in there, and this was, I think, a shot saying, "Okay, okay, this was a bad idea." "Okay, okay, stop with the red phone. All right, that was a bad idea." Because what they said in that is she's a genius, she's a genius. But she's going away very soon. We're just going to ‑‑ she's going away. She was expendable. In the article it also says that she was the only one that could afford the blows. They said that in the same sentence where they were talking about she's going away soon. So in other words, we're going to go try to slug Fox and take them out but it doesn't matter anyway because she's going away. So if it doesn't work, she's going away. That w as a message from the White House in the Washington Post, I think, that says, don't worry, okay, okay, okay, stop with the red phone, we're okay, okay.

So I don't really care what the message is from the White House, I mean, unless it's ‑‑ you know what? Hang on. Hang on. We're going to stop and read the Constitution. That's what we're going to do. That message I'd like to hear. A message that says, "Hey, okay, okay, okay, we're going to stop hiring Marxist revolutionaries." That message I'd like to hear. Other than that I don't really give a flying crap. I'm about the truth. Watchdogs who I believe at their own self‑peril reached out and gave us videotape of Anita Dunn giving a talk in, was it, Washington? I can't remember where it was.

PAT: Yeah, it was Bethesda, Maryland.

GLENN: At a Catholic high school giving a talk for graduating seniors. So this is a high school. Now, I want to preface this with, this was given to me at this time so I could expose it on the air. The media has not responded to this. The White House has. I'll play that response for you. But the response to Jake Tapper from ABC, he asked Anita Dunn, what about this Marxist Mao stuff that you did? Her answer was, oh, I was just kidding.

PAT: Oh, boy.

GLENN: Listen to it, and you tell me if this sounds like she was kidding.

DUNN: But the two people that I turn to most to basically deliver a simple point, which is, you're going to make choices. You're going to challenge. You're going to say, "Why not?" You're going to figure out how to do things that have never been done before. But here's the deal: These are your choices. They are no one else's.

In 1947, when Mao Zedong was being challenged within his own party on his plan to basically take China over, Chiang Kai‑shek and the Nationalist Chinese held the cities, they had the army, they had the air force, they had everything on their side. And people said, "How can you win? How can you do this? How can you do this against all of the odds against you?" And Mao Zedong said, you know, "You fight your war, and I'll fight mine." And think about that for a second.

GLENN: I am.

DUNN: You know, you don't have to accept the definition of how to do things, and you don't have to follow other people's choices and paths, OK? It is about your choices and your path. You fight your own war.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: Oh, oh! Now that I've got it in context that she was kidding, you are right, it is so funny. (Laughing).

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait, wait, I think I ‑‑ she says, what I learned from Mao, the guy I think of most often, one of my political, my favorite political philosophers ‑‑

PAT: One of two.

GLENN: I think you don't have to follow your own path. If you want to shoot somebody in the head or thousands of people in the head to gain power, you could go ahead and do that! (Laughing).

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: All right, seriously, seriously, kids, I'm here all week. I'm here all week with the waiters and waitresses because they're people, too.

STU: I totally get it. I totally get it.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: That was a joke? All right, Pat, I ‑‑

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: See, he killed, he killed as many as 70 million people.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: Hang on, hang on, hang on.

PAT: That's rich.

GLENN: Hang on. And he set up gulags!

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait, wait.

PAT: I can't take it anymore!

GLENN: He said, this is Mao, this is Mao ‑‑ Anita's, one of her two favorite political philosophers that she thinks about all the time, okay? Mao said, we're willing to sacrifice 300 million Chinese.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: He said ‑‑ wait, wait, wait. Wait, wait. Wait. But then he looks at the people and he says, hey, if somebody's trying to commit suicide to get out of here, you go ahead. You don't stop them because, hey, with this kind of population, it's not like we can't spare a few!

PAT: (Laughing).

PAT: I've always loved the comedy stylings of Mao Zedong. Oh, I saw him one time. This had to be back in, I don't know, the early Fifties at laugh stop in Beijing. And he slayed like 3800 people! (Laughing).

GLENN: Oh, man, did he ever ‑‑

PAT: I mean literally slayed them!

GLENN: Oh, man. Make sure you join Mao Zedong in the cat skills this ‑‑

STU: Is he going to have milk out your nose?

GLENN: Yeah, milk out your nose.

PAT: So ridiculous.

GLENN: Wow. She was kidding. That's her defense. She was kidding.

PAT: Clearly not, clearly not.

GLENN: Now, at least she has one. I'd like to ask what the defense of the media is for not covering this. We had it yesterday. Besides Jake Tapper who tweeted about it, who tweeted about it.

STU: We really should come up with a sounder that says besides Jake Tapper because we always have to say that, the media didn't cover it besides Jake Tapper because he actually is one out there asking real questions.

PAT: He is.

GLENN: Well, Jake Tapper is doing it on tweeter, you know, on Twitter.

STU: Well, yes.

GLENN: So he tweeted about it.

STU: And obviously ‑‑

GLENN: And I don't think that's necessarily ‑‑ I mean, God bless him. I'm saying the media overlords over at ABC.

STU: Right.

GLENN: Jake Tapper is at least asking and he's at least tweeting about it. Where is the ABC apparatus there? When is somebody just going to say, when is somebody going to stand up and say, I walk? When is somebody going to stand up and say in the administration, you know, I'd love to see the people who love George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson. I keep finding them that love Mao, that love Marx, that love Chavez, that love Cuba. Is there anybody there that, you know, will take John Adams over Castro? I'd like to see them. And I ‑‑ you know, they will come out now. I'm sure Rahm ‑‑ I'm sure somebody in the White House will dig up somebody that is going to say, "Oh, I... oh, I love John Adams." Really? I'm going to quiz you on them. You tell me why you love them. I'd like to see the passion for the founding fathers, off prompter. They can't do it. Barack Obama studied them, but he's also studied Marxism and Saul Alinsky. I mean, I'll save it for next week.

Here is the interesting thing. So yesterday we do this show and we play that, and do you have the D block by any chance where I say I'm tired? I don't know if you can find it. But I said, if you watch the show ‑‑ in fact, we had somebody call and say, Glenn, you've got to stop crying. And I know. But in that block I said, look, I'm tired, you're tired, we're all tired. We're busy with our jobs and we come home and we're ‑‑ what's happening in school with our kids? And then the indoctrination videos. And then you watch the TV shows and you're like, you've got to be kidding me; what the hell's going on? Your bank account is dwindling around ‑‑ dwindling away. I'm tired; you're tired. But we're going to make it. So this is what I said. After I exposed yet another Marxist and said you can't let any of these things pass, you've got to stop these people dead in their tracks because they're building framework. Marxist, Maoist framework. And I'm tired. And you're tired. But we've got to do it.

Now, you tell me ‑‑ do you have the two cuts? Do you have the mop and the other?

PAT: I've not found the audio of the mop, just the printed word, but I have the other one.

GLENN: Give me the printed word first. This is the printed word first, and we'll get the audio soon of the first part of this. And I can tell you this was off prompter. I'll bet you this was off prompter. Go ahead. What is the printed?

PAT: He said ‑‑ let's see. We need a mop with cleaning up ‑‑ When I’m busy, and Nancy’s busy, with a mop cleaning up somebody else’s mess, we don’t want somebody sitting back saying, ‘you’re not holding the mop the right way’ … ‘you’re not mopping fast enough’ … ‘that’s a socialist mop. Grab a mop; we need help.

GLENN: Okay. So that's the first thing was, that's a socialist ‑‑ we don't need people sitting around saying, that's a socialist mop, first. Now, the night I say I'm tired and I take down the person who has paid with your tax dollars to monitor my show, monitor Fox and take us apart, on the same day that I say I'm tired but we'll make it, the same day that he sends a message to the left, you tell me if this just is ‑‑ this is, you know, meaningless.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Let me tell you, those folks who are trying to stand in the way of progress, they're all ‑‑ let me tell you: I'm just getting started. I don't quit. I'm not tired. I'm just getting started.

GLENN: I'm telling you.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: No, but I think it is important for those folks to understand I'm just ready to go. I am ‑‑ we're just going to keep on going.

GLENN: I'm telling you, I'm telling you. Look, I don't think ‑‑ and I wouldn't have believed this a year ago because I wouldn't have, I wouldn't have thought twice about an Anita Dunn story in the Washington Post in the Style section. I didn't know how the media worked. I didn't know how the White House worked. I didn't know all of this stuff. You know, five years ago, no idea. A year ago? Figuring it out. Now, I got it.

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."
