Glenn Beck: Who's the extremist?


Arguing with Idiots: How to Stop Small Minds and Big Government


by Glenn Beck

GLENN: It is good to be back, where we can talk some sanity. I'm curious. Granted, I've been down for a couple of days, but has anybody heard anybody over at the White House label Nidal Malik Hasan the terrorist who killed 13 and wounded 30 more at Fort Hood an extremist? Have you heard that label come from anyone, anyone, at the White House, an extremist? I heard him referred as a shooter, a gunman. I know he's been called troubled, harassed. I know that he had a bumper sticker scraped off of his car. Oh, no, not a bumper sticker. Where is my gun? I know he didn't want to be deployed. His cousin called him a good America a good American. I'm hate to think of the good Americans that are on that list of shooting 13 people and still, you know, falling on the list of good there's one. I have yet to hear him be called by anybody, either by the White House or the king of the extremist label, Frank Rich of the New York Times, an extremist. Have you heard it?

It's interesting, isn't it? I mean, because if there was anyone lately who could be labeled an extremist, you would think that it might be somebody who spoke of Islamic jihad to his fellow soldiers and then acted on those feelings by picking up a weapon and killing his fellow soldiers with it. I mean, it seems pretty clear cut in the extremist realm. But, instead, it is you, it is the tea party goer, it is you that quote Thomas Jefferson, you that say, where is the honor of George Washington, you that can quote Ben Franklin saying, you want to get people out of poverty? Make them uncomfortable in their poverty. You, you are the one labeled as an extremist. And that's because you clearly, I mean, you spoke fondly of small government and picked up a sign much that's pretty scary stuff. You and your kids with little, you know, sprinkles made the signs. I mean, you're indoctrinating your children. Of course a you're an extremist. Sarah Palin is extremist. She fought for this overhaul, ran for Vice President, espousing principles. She didn't follow the conventional wisdom of what she should do, according to what they say she should do. She's an extremist. She's out of control. I'm an extremist. I dare expose what no one else will, that there are anti free market officials now, Marxists, socialist, self proclaimed communists in and around the White House. I think I'm an extremist because I think that is probably not a good idea, but Nidal Malik Hasan, oh, he just he was picked upon, he was misunderstood, he was quiet, he was a good American. He just snapped. That's my favorite from the President. He just snapped. Murdered 13 Americans in his snapping. He talked openly about his feelings before acting on them. Did he hear Nancy Pelosi's speech? She said we should watch the language because people might get shot. She's seen it before, you know, of course, not from anyone like Nidal Malik Hasan. No, no, no. The tea party people. You should watch their language. There's consequences to language unless you're a Nidal Malik Hasan. Then, then there's no consequence. No, you just snapped. Why did he snap? I don't know. I don't care, really. He murdered Americans in cold blood. What do you say we don't care about how he snapped or why. It was an act of bald face extreme terrorism. He's an extremist. He's a terrorist. He should be tried, tried fairly, quickly, and if he is found guilty, executed. Done. I'm sorry. Is that too extreme? Good heavens, America. Look what they're doing to us. Look how far the discussion has shifted.

You're seeing it, hearing it everywhere now. Anyone and everyone who effectively stands in the way of the progressive agenda is a fudged mentalist, an extremist, anybody who is against the fundamental transformation of America, well, you're a danger. We don't call Nidal Malik Hasan a Muslim extremist, a terrorist. No, we call him a gunman, a gunman, a man with a gun because the gun was the bad part. Frank Rich and the rest of the Obama mentions of the New York Times, which, by the way, we should start taking bets on how soon they go out of business or no. I'm sorry how soon before they are taken over by the United States government because they are too big to fail. They will gladly too the bidding of this administration because they're too big to fail. They will act as a propaganda arm of the White House. They will act as the propaganda arm of this nation's enemies abroad, rich and the rest of continue to oblige in print and the patrols at MSNBC will eagerly spew the company line on television, you're extreme, he's extreme, they're dangerous, they're hate. Outrageous, frightening. Did you see that sign? Meanwhile, the truly hateful, frightening dangers go unobstructed, along their merry way, because they're just being picked on. He had a bumper sticker scraped off his bumper, you know. George Washington used to call this the battle field of ideas. When did words and ideas replace fists and bullets as tools of violence? No one at the White House or the New York Times has referred to the beat downs issued by SEIU members recently as violent or extreme. We just had another one over the weekend. If I had another appendix, it might burst, too, from the lack of coverage. The SEIU thugs thought on videotape beating down an African American tea party goer. That guy in St. Louis hasn't even been charged. Is it extreme? Is it an extremist to beat someone down because they disagree with you on health care? No, no, apparently not, huh uh. No, no. Standing up against this health care reform, that's extreme and dangerous and on the wrong side of history. The terrorist murderer who shot the Army recruiter dead in Arkansas last wasn't even discussed in the media, let alone called an extremist, but you, me, well so, as long as that's our new reality, I'd like to make a list of demands with you, my fellow extremists. If we are a danger to this country, well, then let's be a danger to this country. Let's go ahead and make a list of our extremist demands because, oh, my, they are extreme. I'm going to start with the toughest one. This is going to put me in the kook territory. Oh, look out. I demand that this government stop spending money that they don't have. Yes, I know. I'm an extremist. I'm a crazy. I'm a radical. I'm a danger to this country by saying, what do you say you don't spend the money that you don't have? Stop spending my grandchildren's money and I'm going to be so I'm going to show you that I've been rooted in extremism for so long, I've been saying that for 10 years. Yeah. Here's another extremist thought. This is crazy. This is crazy. Look out. Somebody call the Department of Homeland Security well, don't bother them now because they found out from Janet Napolitano that working to, quote they're working on several programs now to make sure that there's no anti Muslim violence perpetrated as a result of this shooting. So, Department of Homeland Security is really quite busy working on that anti Muslim violence that we see so much of every day. I mean, Nidal had a bumper sticker scratched off his car. Did you know that? Somebody just write this down and when the Department of Homeland Security gets around to extremists like me, you just remind them that here's another one of my demands. Tell us how you're going to pay for a trillion dollar health care plan. In fact, since we have to pay for it three years before it even starts, what do you say you kick in the savings three years before it starts, before we sign on, you show me for three years you can save the money that you're promising us you're going to save and find. Meanwhile, I'll sit over and eat me Lucky Charms.

Here's another extremist demand. You listen to the people. After all, you work for the people. This used to be a country of laws and not of men. Now we see it's a country of companies, special interests, idea logs. Laws? Excuse me? How about you listen to the people? 35 percent of the American people want this. Would you ever go to war with a 35 percent approval rating? Would you ever do it? Here's another extremist demand. Get rid of the corruption before you spend another dime. Why, why would I why would I, as an extremist, find it reasonable to people who are so riddled with corruption, the guy who writes the tax code can't even figure out how to pay his own taxes? Then says, oh, well, that was just over oversight. So, he amends his taxes. Oh. And, gosh, after he turns that in and it's found that he missed another what was it? Million and a half dollars? Well, that's just another oversight. How many oversights before we start emptying out the prisoners the prisons in our country, making room for all the people in Washington that belong behind bars? I know that's extreme. It's extreme. It is. Return to the principles embedded by our radical extremist founding fathers and you know another thing about this extremist thing? I can't understand it. We're either extremists or we're just involved in the politics of the past. The old, tired politics, the ones that have been tried and tried and tried and continue to fail. Well, you can't be extremist if you don't want to make any changes. How could you possibly be extremist? I mean, I'm sorry, I'm going to go for radical, a radical change in my treatment? Yes, yes. He's advocating radical changes for his treatment. We're going to treat him exactly the same as we've been treating him the whole time. Woe! So, I'm either part of the politics of the past or I'm a radical, but if you want to say that I'm a radical, you better check out the radicals that I subscribe to, the radicals that I read, not Saul Alinsky, not Stalin, not Mao. I look to the radicals of the 1700's, from the period of, currently referred to as the period of enlightenment. You know, those radicals, the radicals of the enlightenment, the radicals that brought us out of the dark ages, those radicals. How could those radicals, 225 years old, how could those radicals possibly, possibly be radicals today? They're 230 years old, these ideas. Unless they haven't been employed for about 100 years. See, these ideas that our founders have, I write it in the first paragraph, I believe, of Common Sense, the fastest way to be deemed a radical in today's society is to quote our founding fathers. How is that possible, if those are just the politics of the past? They're only radical because you haven't heard them for awhile. This country hasn't been living by those words or those ideas. Oh, they're extreme. Let me quote one of those extreme tests, if you want to help the poor, help them feel uncomfortable in their poverty. Well, that extremist was Ben Franklin, from the age of enlightenment. Why did he hate the poor so? Our extremist radical founders all knew that government programs were not the answer to poverty. They led to poverty. Making people comfortable in their poverty is not the answer to get them out of poverty. It is the answer for government officials who gain power by making sure that poverty stricken become permanently dependent upon them. Hello, Detroit! I'm sorry. Is that too extreme for you? It used to be called common sense. It used to be called the truth.

Here's the problem: No matter how much we expose the anti free market, big government takeover that's happening right now, they just keep going because there's not enough Americans aware yet. There was some sort of measurement done by I don't know who recently on the impact of this program. They measured somehow I don't know how all this works, but they somebody measured the footprint of TV and radio and books and everything else. They did some sort of estimate on the Glenn Beck footprint. It is around 30 million people a month supportedly supposedly 30 million people check out the radio, TV shows, at least in whole or in part every single month. Again, I have no idea how this was done. But why understand anything anymore? It's all magic, pixie fairy dust that makes things happen, but let's just say that that's accurate, for the sake of argument. That would still only be 10 percent of this nation, 10 percent. Is hearing this message. I don't know where the tipping point is, but I'm going as hard and as fast as I possibly can. Unfortunately, so is America's adversaries. I know that websites like the Huffington Post put things, you know, on the Internet. Well, you know what? My friend, it is time that you do the same. It is time for you to mobilize. It is time for you to realize that you are an extremist. Um. You're Ben Franklin. You know, he was printing extremist material on a printing press. Oh, yeah. Samuel Adams did the same thing. They used a little something called the newspaper, when the newspapers were against the government, because they knew the government was full of corrupt officials. At the White House the New York Times and the rest of the media, they'll paint you as a kook, as an extremist. I don't care. I'll stand with those revolutionaries, Thomas Paine, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson. It's time we moved past the nonsense. I'm trying, but for the most part, I feel pretty alone in the media and I need your help to get the message out. You don't have to credit me. You can watch or not listen or not subscribe or not steal my material. I don't really care. Repackage it. Find the ways to get this message out. Find the ways. We're doing the work for you. We're giving you the material. We're making sure it's accurate. Repackage it. Find the way to reach out to your friends. Some copyrights do apply. Void where prohibited. Not valid in Hawaii. See dealer for details. Spread the message. Again, I don't know how the survey was done back then, but I've read that the American revolution turned on 20 percent of the citizens back then, 20 percent. Gang, just with this show, we're halfway there. Fortify, know what's real, spread the word, surround yourself with like minded people. Call a terrorist a terrorist. I personally wouldn't tear a bumper sticker off somebody's car, but I also don't think if somebody did, it doesn't mean you pick up a gun and shoot 13 people.

Glenn gives the latest coronavirus numbers, updating YOU on everything needed to know as Americans and officials monitor China's new COVID-19 virus:

Brother, Can You Spare $2 Trillion? https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/25/coronavirus-stimulus-bill-updates-whats-in-the-2-trillion-relief-plan.html
  • US Senate Passes the largest economic stimulus bill in world history.
  • The Senate passes a roughly $2 trillion economic relief plan in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
  • It includes direct payments to Americans, strengthened unemployment insurance, loans to businesses small and large and increased health care resources for hospitals, states and municipalities.
  • Loans to small businesses are technically 'grants' covering payroll and rent payments. Grants do not have to be repaid.
  • It is unclear when the House will pass the legislation, though it aims to do so Friday.
Every American Will Get $1,200 in 2-3 Weeks, $2,400 plus up to 4 months Unemployment Benefits https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8152139/Every-American-four-months-unemployment-checks-earning-95-000.htm
  • Workers will get four months of unemployment pay plus additional $600 each.
  • Direct checks to Americans include 1,200 per adult making up to $75,000 a year before phasing out and ending altogether for those earning more than $99,000
  • That would result in $2,400 to a married couple making up to $150,000, with an additional $500 per child for each household.
  • 'Our expectation is within three weeks we will have direct payments out,' Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said.
Cuomo Confirms What Introverts Have Long Known: Social Distancing Works https://www.scmp.com/news/china/article/3077011/coronavirus-new-york-governor-andrew-cuomo-says-early-signs-show-social
  • Stringent density control measures may be working to contain the coronavirus in New York state, the epicenter of COVID-19 outbreak in the US, as the rate of hospitalization shows early signs of abating, Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Wednesday.
  • New York, which has 19 million residents and nearly 31,000 infections, now accounts for 56 per cent of the confirmed cases in the country and more than 7 percent of the world's total.
  • Cuomo had ordered all but essential businesses to shutter by Sunday evening and residents to limit their outdoor activities and practice social distancing, effectively putting the state on pause.
  • On Tuesday, the number of hospitalized patients had doubled every 4.7 days, slowing from the rate of every 3.4 days on Monday and every two days on Sunday, Cuomo said at his daily coronavirus briefing.
  • "This is a very positive sign," he said. "The arrows are heading into the right direction."
Were the Beads Worth It? Mardi Gras Gets Blame for Big Easy Outbreak https://news.trust.org/item/20200325200808-oc1ie
  • "Mardi Gras was the perfect storm, it provided the perfect conditions for the spread of this virus," said Dr. Rebekah Gee, who heads up Louisiana State University's health care services division.
  • She noted that Fat Tuesday fell on Feb. 25, when the virus was already in the United States but before the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and national leaders had raised the alarm with the American public.
  • "New Orleans had its normal level of celebration, which involved people congregating in large crowds and some 1.4 million tourists," Gee said. "We shared drink cups. We shared each other's space in the crowds. People were in close contact with catching beads. It is now clear that people also caught coronavirus."
  • New Orleans is on track to become the next coronavirus epicenter in the United States, dimming hopes that less densely populated and warmer-climate cities would escape the worst of the pandemic, and that summer month could see it wane.
  • Authorities have warned the number of cases in New Orleans could overwhelm its hospitals by April 4.
  • New Orleans is the biggest city in Louisiana, the state with the third-highest caseload of coronavirus in the United States on a per capita basis.
  • The growth rate in Louisiana tops all others, according to a University of Louisiana at Lafayette analysis of global data, with the number of cases rising by 30% in the 24 hours before noon on Wednesday.
  • On Tuesday, U.S. President Donald Trump issued a major federal disaster declaration for the state, freeing federal funds and resources.
US Military Officially On No-Travel Lockdown https://news.trust.org/item/20200325203242-zgoc4
  • Defense Secretary Mark Esper has issued a "stop all movement" order to the U.S. military halting travel and movement abroad for up to 60 days in an effort to limit the spread of the coronavirus through the ranks.
  • The measure is by far the Defense Department's most sweeping to date and will affect forces around the world.
  • Esper said in an interview that the order applied to all U.S. troops, civilian personnel and families, but noted that there would be some exceptions.
  • "The purpose is to make sure that we're not bringing the virus back home, infecting others, that we're not spreading it around the military," Esper said.
  • The order does include personnel who were to have been scheduled to be formally discharged from the Military in April or May.
  • Esper said one exception to the order would be the drawdown underway in Afghanistan, which will continue.
For The Best Darn Facemask In The Whole Wide World... https://www.foxnews.com/us/mypillow-other-us-companies-making-face-masks-to-meet-coronavirus-shortages
  • In Minnesota, the MyPillow company is refocusing 75 percent of its production to face masks for health care workers.
  • "We have the capacity to make a lot of things at big rates and we're going to be going hopefully from 10,000 units a day to 50,000 units a day in a very short period of time," CEO Mike Lindell told FOX 9 of Minneapolis-St. Paul.
  • The masks will go to hospitals in Minnesota as well as other states, he said. "Whatever it takes."
  • MyPillow worked with the Trump administration to get the proper design, Lindell told local Fox News 9.
  • Lindell joins literally hundreds of other companies in the US who have heeded the call of the Trump Administration to covert production to respirators, masks, ventilators, gowns and other needed medical equipment.
Further Evidence that COVID-19 Is Seasonal and May Spread Less in Summer Months https://news.yahoo.com/coronavirus-could-become-seasonal-top-us-scientist-001146451.html
  • There is a strong chance the new coronavirus could return in seasonal cycles, a senior US scientist said Wednesday, underscoring the urgent need to find a vaccine and effective treatments.
  • Anthony Fauci, who leads research into infectious diseases at the National Institutes of Health, told a briefing the virus was beginning to take root in the southern hemisphere, where winter is on its way.
  • "What we're starting to see now... in southern Africa and in the southern hemisphere countries, is that we're having cases that are appearing as they go into their winter season," he said.
  • "And if, in fact, they have a substantial outbreak, it will be inevitable that we need to be prepared that we'll get a cycle around the second time," Fauci said, referring to a 2nd cycle in the US late next fall in November or December.
  • "It totally emphasizes the need to do what we're doing in developing a vaccine, testing it quickly and trying to get it ready so that we'll have a vaccine available for that next cycle."
  • Fauci's comments suggesting the virus does better in colder weather than it does in hot and humid conditions follows a recent Chinese research paper -- still preliminary and awaiting peer-review -- that reached the same conclusion.

America Loses 500,000 Millionaires to COVID-19 - Bernie Sanders Elated https://www.msn.com/en-us/finance/markets/america-e2-80-99s-millionaire-ranks-shrink-by-500000-in-record-time/ar-BB11DrqN
  • At the close of 2019, there were an unprecedented 11 million American millionaires, a reflection of the longest bull market in history thanks to ultra-low interest rates and tax cuts.
  • Fast forward just a few months and it's a starkly different picture. The number of households in the U.S. above that threshold has dropped by at least 500,000 as of Friday, according to research firm Spectrem Group.
  • The tandem financial and health crises wrought by COVID-19 have disproportionately eroded the fortunes of the wealthy, who are more likely to own equities than the overall population.
  • At the end of 2019, the top 1% of households owned 53.5% of equities and mutual fund shares, according to Federal Reserve statistics.
  • The losses affected the rich at every level, from the mass affluent to those worth more than $25 million, according to the report. The wealth destruction at the very top has been especially steep, with the top 1% of households losing over $7.9 Trillion in wealth so far in 2020.
50% of Americans Living Under Shelter In Place or Home Quarantine Orders https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/more-than-half-of-us-population-will-be-under-orders-to-stay-home-by-midweek
  • The majority of the public will be ordered to stay home in the coming days as the coronavirus pandemic sweeps the nation.
  • A total of 13 states and at least 16 municipalities have enacted measures to keep residents inside their homes to prevent the spread of the virus, according to CNN.
  • That number, which amounts to 148,577,262 people, or 45% of the population, is expected to grow this week as five more states and nine more municipalities institute additional measures.
  • After the new orders go into effect, a total of 176,385,537 people, or 54% of the population, will be asked to stay home.
  • Many states and cities have not named a specific date, although some, such as LA County and the State of New York, have identified April 19th as the target 'end' of the at-home quarantine orders.
Uniformed Military Personnel Set Up Make-shift Morgue Outside NYC Hospital https://nypost.com/2020/03/24/makeshift-morgue-for-coronavirus-victims-set-up-outside-nyc-hospital/
  • In a scene reminiscent of Hollywood disaster movies (and more recently China, Italy and Spain), US Military personnel have set up a tent-based morgue outside of Bellvue Hospital in NYC.
  • Two refrigerated trailers were trucked to the site at 30th Street and the FDR Drive, along with a customized RV with a printed sign labeled: "MOBILE COMMAND CENTER — MEDICAL EXAMINER."
  • A team of men wearing camouflage fatigues and face masks set up a series of white tents that form a tunnel to a larger, white tent.
  • Other men wearing jackets that identified them as members of the NYPD and the city's Office of the Chief Medical Examiner were also at the scene.
  • A source familiar with the operation said that additional refrigerated trailers would be brought to the site and that similar set-ups would be built up outside other hospitals.
  • "The plan is for them to be there and throughout the city," the source said, with as many as 6 temporary morgue locations near hospitals in New York City.
UV Rays Proven to Destroy SARS-Cov-2 Virus https://www.accuweather.com/en/health-wellness/what-infection-rates-in-iceland-and-australia-may-reveal-about-how-covid-19-could-spread-in-the-us/707057
  • The infection rate for COVID-19 is 22 times higher in Iceland as compared to Australia.
  • The research comes as scientists in Hong Kong demonstrate that SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19, is easily destroyed with UV light, just like all other known Coronaviruses.
  • "Direct exposure to UV light breaks down the membrane that houses the RNA of the virus," Dr Lon Kiang, lead researcher of the study said. Without the membrane, the virus cannot attach itself to healthy cells in the human body.
  • "This was expected, but is still certainly good news," he said.
  • Researchers said the findings may indicate that the virus will have a harder time spreading during warmer summer months, when more UV light strikes surfaces, including clothing and human skin, which may contain viral particles.
  • Scientists warned against directly and intentionally exposing skin to UV lights, which can cause burns and carries other risks, such as Cancer.

The mainstream media and the left are eager to report anything negative about President Donald Trump, even if it turns out to be Chinese Communist Party propaganda and disinformation.

On "GlennTV," Glenn uncovered some of the lies China's Communist Party is peddling to its own people and the rest of the world.

Diagnosed with pneumonia and coronavirus, Rio Giardinieri, 52, was admitted to the ICU at Joe DiMaggio hospital in South Florida. After more than a week without showing any improvement, doctors told him there was nothing more they could do. Desperately ill, Giardinieri started saying his "goodbyes" to family and friends.

That's when a friend told him there was a potential "cure" for coronavirus, an anti-malaria drug called hydroxycloroquine. Though doctors at the hospital said they couldn't prescribe hydroxycloroquine, they put Giardinieri in touch with an infectious disease doctor who authorized the use. The next morning, he says he woke up feeling "absolutely perfect."

Giardinieri joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to share his remarkable story and to weigh in on why he thinks information about this promising treatment for COVID-19 isn't being made more readily available.

"I'm not a scientist. I'm not a doctor. I can just tell you how I feel. And I know that I was not doing well. In my mind, I didn't believe I was going to be here by the morning," Giardinieri said. "I don't know what else to attribute [for recovery] but that medicine ... and it's not just me that it's worked for. There're many people this has worked for. So, you know, I certainly understand the hospital's position. They may not be too happy me telling the story. But the facts are the facts."
