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.

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:

Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg has surged in the polls in the past month.

With former Vice President Joe Biden dropping below far-left presidential candidates such as the unapologetically socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), and the almost equally extremist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass), Democratic voters seeking a more moderate alternative are setting their sights on Mayor Pete.

But are Buttigieg's policies actually moderate? Not even close, Glenn Beck said Thursday on the radio program.

"[Pete Buttigieg] wants people to see him as a moderate. The mayor of a Midwest city in a red state ... and he's going for the middle, even though he is not a moderate candidate in any way," said Glenn.

Here are just a few example of where Buttigieg stands on the issues:

  • Supports late-term, partial-birth abortion
  • Eliminate the Electoral College
  • Buyback program for assault weapons
  • Raise the federal minimum wage to $15/hour
  • Expand Medicare
  • Decriminalize illegal immigration
  • Pay for infrastructure through changing taxes on corporations, the wealthy
  • Study reparations
  • Legalize marijuana
  • Increase existing taxes on upper-income Americans
  • Cancel some student debt
  • Don't use tariffs to pressure countries
