Glenn Beck: Media 71% positive on Reid's 'negro' comment



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


by Glenn Beck

GLENN: You should see the attacks on me from last night's television program. Last night's television program was the second installment of Time To Be Heard, African-Americans that don't exist to the rest of the world and the rest of the media, and that is, conservatives. And I've got to tell you, I would vote for half the audience. These guys get it and why do they get it? Because they've had to struggle, they've been challenged every step of the way, because they are conservative. They've been called Uncle Tom, they've been called Clarence Thomas, which is an honor, by the way. They've been called every name, a sell-out to their race. And so because they've been challenged, they know what they believe. One of them brought up a great point last night. They already have 95 percent of the African-American vote. Why do they need that last 5 percent? Why do they work so hard on that last 5 percent? Because they must have you in lockstep, because once this thing starts to unravel, one people begin to see the lie, it's over. Well, the lie is being unraveled and Harry Reid is a great example of it. Everyone knows that there is a double standard. The Harry Reid -- what did he say? -- Negro dialect?

Pat: Uh-huh

Glenn: The Negro dialect, 71 percent of the coverage on network was positive.

Pat: How does that happen with a controversial statement like that? I mean, and that's all -- I mean, Day 1, when the story broke, that's all it was called by CBS anchor Jeff Glor, a controversial remark that's shaking the political world. On Sunday, George Stephanopoulos sounded like he was Harry Reid's press agent. He said, This was a private conversation. His choice of words obviously was fortunate. The senator knows that. Then he said, This is the Mormon from Search Light, Nevada, with an ear of tin and a heart of gold.

Glenn: Let me just -- let me just go over that again. This, by the way, was a line from the White House, as well. This came from Judy Woodruff and Stephanopoulos. This is the Mormon from Search Light, Nevada, with an ear of tin and a heart of gold. I'm not sure if it's the Mormon part that gives him the tin ear or the heart of gold to that, but I've never heard anyone in the press give a Mormon the benefit of the doubt because they're a Mormon, ever. I mean, this is from ABC. I worked at ABC while this was going on with Mitt Romney. Believe me, there's no fans of Mormons at ABC. There is not a single fan of Mormons in the media. I take that back. One. One. Wolf Blitzer. Wolf Blitzer was the only man, the only man who stood his ground when this Mitt Romney was going on. Wolf Blitzer pulled me off the air one day and he said, Glenn, I'm Jewish. My background, I can see religious bigotry from a mile away and this is religious bigotry. You'll find none of it on my show.

Pat: Wow. Good for him. That's great.

Glenn: Wolf Blitzer, I'm more impressed with -- and I know -- he competes against me and I love him. He is a good, decent, honorable man and one of the reasons is because of that. While everyone else was making hay, he didn't, but believe me, everyone, everyone in the media will take down -- all they're going to do is take down the weakest religions one by one and that's the weakest one. When, when have you heard anyone, especially with a racist comment, when have you ever heard anybody, go, yeah, but he's a Mormon who's got a heart of gold.

Pat: It was Mitt Romney, you know they wouldn't have said that. If it was you --

Glenn: They would have killed me.

Pat: Crucified you.

Glenn: Absolutely.

Pat: Absolutely. But all the support for Harry Reid -- NBC's Andrea Mitchell was probably the dumbest on Monday morning. She called Reid's remark demeaning of Obama, but as so many in your audience pointed out last night, it wasn't just Obama he was demeaning with the light skin thing. He made it -- he made it seem like only a light skinned black person can run for office. Everybody else, you're --

Glenn: Gwen Ifill, Gwen Ifill said, I don't understand what's demeaning in this, Gwen Ifill.

Pat: Unbelievable.

Glenn: Excuse me. I just had -- I just had a show last night with a roomful of African-Americans and they all said it's not only demeaning to Obama, because what they're saying if you weren't light skin -- if he had darker skin, he wouldn't be able to win, but it's also demeaning to all African-Americans and all Americans. I asked them last night, do you believe that America is a racist nation or a nation that has some racists in it. They all said, I think except for one, we're a nation of good people and we have some racists. That's the truth, but the progressives want you to believe it's the other way around and, you know, when you talk about the Negro dialect, we had this conversation. If you TIVOed the show last night, you've got to watch it. We had this great conversation about, quote, unquote, the Negro dialect. If you're talking about ebonics, which would be the non-great-grandfather way of expressing it, Harry Reid, if you're talking about ebonics, you're right, a guy couldn't be elected speaking ebonics, but as I pointed out on last night's show, neither a guy, who is, like, Hey, do you know what we're going to do? Buford and I are going to get in the back of the truck and then we're going to -- we're going to mix us up some health care. That wouldn't -- you wouldn't be elected President with that, either. I mean --

Pat: Some would say we did, you know, George Bush.

Stu: I might vote for Buford. After that impression, I want that guy running.

Pat: Wouldn't it be great?

Stu: Could you give us a little more of that guy? This guy is fantastic.

Glenn: I've got my pretty little woman in the kitchen. She's fixing us some for for anybody who doesn't have anything to eat, you know.

Stu: Buford.

Glenn: That's what we're doing, yeah.

Stu: Buford for President.

Glenn: Yeah, you, with the stupid little tie and the pointy shoes.

Stu: What is Buford's position on, like, global warming?

Glenn: Global warming? I've got your global warming right here.

Stu: I love this guy. I told you.

Glenn: He might actually win. Global warming? Hell, I've got your global warming right here. All right.

Stu: Buford 2012.

Glenn: I'm just saying. That's all I'm saying.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
