Glenn Beck: Joe Klein destroyed by Bill O'Reilly




Joe Klein destroyed by Bill O'Reilly

GLENN: I want to play from Bill O'Reilly last night Joe Klein from Time magazine.

KLEIN: But I think that your pal Glenn Beck is peddling a lot of hateful crap.

O'REILLY: But he is doing it in a funny way. What's hateful about it?

KLEIN: I thought the part where he describe the president as intentionally steering the airplane of state into the ground.

PAT: At least, but at least he got the analogy that it wasn't an actual airplane and he wasn't trying to actually kill people.

STU: Right. He didn't realize it wasn't the, what was it, the of state? It was about the economy.

PAT: Right, it was.

GLENN: Isn't it interesting, isn't it interesting that Arianna Huffington and Joe Klein in the same weekend.

PAT: Both.

GLENN: Used the same analogy.

PAT: So weird.

GLENN: That's been out that piece has been out for, what, months?

PAT: Long time.

GLENN: Months.

PAT: May I also point out that's not hate!

GLENN: That's opinion.

PAT: It's an opinion!

GLENN: Right.

PAT: There's nothing hateful about it!

GLENN: Right.

STU: That's a good point. They just put hate next to anything that anyone on the right size, yeah.

PAT: If you disagree with him, you hate him.

STU: It's a hate of opinion.

PAT: Stupid!

GLENN: Let me tell you something one of my favorite websites is Mediaite and there are times they take me down hard, they don't like me at all.

PAT: They have, yeah.

GLENN: They have taken me down hard. But there are other times that they defend and it's not because they are fans or not fans. It's because that's the way they see it and they are not just ideologues. Listen to this: Bill O'Reilly debates Joe Klein on the Glenn Beck phenomenon. Bill O'Reilly started this week not only by taking on Republican critics to President Obama but also factoring in some liberal guests into the fold. One of those, Joe Klein from Time magazine, has recently had a back and forth with Glenn Beck and O'Reilly took the chance to offer a defense of sorts to his colleague. Klein wrote an column recently criticizing Fox News and really stupid Americans. That got a 15 minute epic takedown from Beck last week.

I love the article they wrote last week on the epic takedown. They said, you want to know why Beck is successful? Watch this, the best 15 minutes you've ever seen.

After discussing several issues with Klein, O'Reilly brought out Klein's FNC criticism going back to last year as well. You don't like Fox News much, says O'Reilly. Klein says he respects Major Garrett and even O'Reilly, those are good guys, I think you are a good guy. We come from the same neck of the woods, said Klein but surprise, surprise, your pal Glenn Beck is peddling a lot of hateful crap. Klein said sarcastically the stuff about Obama not being an American citizen, that was hysterical.

Now listen to this. Go ahead and play what else Klein said.

KLEIN: It's hilarious and the stuff about Obama not being a

O'REILLY: He's got a phone to the White House. Look, he is every man sitting on a barstool. Why shouldn't he have a show?

KLEIN: No, no, no, he is Father Coughlin.

[ OVERLAPPING SPEAKERS ]

PAT: Father Coughlin.

GLENN: Father Coughlin

PAT: The socialist.

STU: What is it? Coughlin or Conklin? Conklin or something? It's not Coughlin, is it? That's how it's written but that's not how it's pronounced.

GLENN: I don't care how it's pronounced. The only ones that know this reference are the people at MSNBC and the Huffington Post and Media Matters. They are the only ones, and they get it wrong every time. The guy was a socialist. The guy was I mean, look him up on SSI.gov. If you look at Social Security, he's there.

PAT: He started out a huge fan of FDR.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: And the reason that he turned on FDR and became so vehemently opposed to him

GLENN: Because he didn't go close enough! That's me.

PAT: Oh, that's a perfect comparison to you.

GLENN: That's me.

PAT: Perfect.

GLENN: The reason why he says he's Father Coughlin is twofold. One, Father Coughlin was a populist. I'm not a populist.

STU: I don't think so. People have leveled that claim against you for a long time.

GLENN: Not a populist. What I happen to say is popular now. I happen to believe in the little man, but that's not a populist stance that I need the big government. Populist stance combines the big government with it. I don't want the big government protecting.

STU: Right. And you've been criticized for

GLENN: Leave me alone.

STU: Right. You've been criticized for being a big friend to the evil elite rich people forever and then all of a sudden now you are a populist. I don't know how that happens.

GLENN: All right. So and that's what's happening is now the progressives are going to take this. Which is what they are really in many ways, they are Father Coughlin. That's who they are. They are a bunch of Marxists that want redistribution of wealth. They don't think Obama has even gone far enough. And also, by the way, the reason why they compare me to Father Coughlin is because in the end he was supporting the Germans against the Jews.

STU: Right.

GLENN: So

STU: Blah blah Nazi, blah blah.

GLENN: And I just want to point out I'm so much alike that Benjamin Netanyahu told me that I will be remembered as a friend to humanity for what I have done and said about Israel and Iran.

PAT: Okay, dusty Rhodes!

STU: Your reference!

GLENN: So here's what Joe Klein, you know, he continues on and Bill O'Reilly, you know, just leaves it as the joke that it is. But let me read what Mediaite says: First of all, Beck is so far from a Birther, it's absurd for Klein to even cite in his argument. It proves he doesn't even actually watch or listen to Glenn Beck.

STU: Great.

GLENN: See article, Glenn Beck thinks Birthers are dumb. Glenn Beck is a lot of things. He thinks a large portion of the Obama administration are Mao loving progressive radicals intent on forcing the social is regime change.

PAT: Only because they said so.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Other than that.

GLENN: But he's not that. Also on O'Reilly's defense that Beck is every mayonnaise is disingenuous as well, Glenn Beck, his appeal is that he's doing things that no one else can do. Maybe the every man can identify with what Beck is saying but Beck is the guy leading the charge quite literally in some cases. There's a hyperlink to that. I've got to see what that is. And that makes him uniquely loved and hated. Besides, Klein, who led the show as guest number one, San Francisco Gavin Newsom made his Factor debut last night, blah, blah blah, blah blah.

PAT: So Klein started out the show by accusing Fox News of lying. Then in his dissertation on you, comes up

STU: And he only came up with two things, one of which was a complete lie, the other was saying an analogy that was incorrect. I mean, he didn't come up with one accurate thing. How did he come up with what?

GLENN: But he only had a week to respond to the epic takedown of Time magazine. Remember when Time magazine used to have credibility? I know, I know, it was

PAT: When was that?

GLENN: It was before they put me on the cover.

'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long': BlazeTV hosts react to historic Roe v. Wade decision

The Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe V. Wade, and the debate over abortion rights has been given back to the states. On this historic day, BlazeTV hosts celebrate the Supreme Court's incredible decision and take a look at some of the insane reactions as the left comes completely undone.

Glenn Beck reacts LIVE to Roe v. Wade ruling: 'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long'

I never thought that in my lifetime, I would see Roe v. Wade be overturned. But today, that day has come. The Supreme Court has voted 6 to 3 to return decisions about abortion to the states. But this fight isn't over. We are about to see good versus evil side by side. Many states will stand with the unborn. But others will become abortion mills. It's your turn to choose now, America!

Allie Beth Stuckey: 'Praise God, Roe v. Wade is overturned!'

I don't know about you, but I just had the most euphoric feelings. It almost seems too good to be true. I didn't think there was any way that this would actually happen, especially with all the backlash, intimidation, and violence toward the Supreme Court justices. And yet, here we are. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This is an amazing day!

Dave Rubin: Big disagreement on what happens next now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

Dave Rubin, Libby Emmons, Jeffrey A. Tucker, and David Reaboi debate what will happen in the wake of the Supreme Court’s breaking decision on Roe v. Wade. Now that abortion rights have been pushed back to the states, will there be a summer of massive riots or not? Will the Roe v. Wade ruling make America’s political polarization significantly worse?

Jason Whitlock: Today will forever stand as a pivotal moment in our nation’s history

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. The decision and the reaction to it have already revealed a lot about our people and politics. Pro-life groups celebrate, pro-choice groups call for “a night of rage,” and Nancy Pelosi just seems completely confused by the United States Constitution.

Stu Burguiere: Here are the reasons SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade

I never thought this would happen. I never thought I would see this day. I just never ever ever ever never ever believed that Roe v. Wade would actually be overturned. I really didn't. But let's take a look at the reasons this day has finally come ...

The Rick & Bubba Show: 'This is history! Unfortunately we're 60 million lives too late'

We were live on the air when news broke of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States overturned its controversial 1973 Roe v. Wadeopinion, concluding that there is no constitutional right to an abortion.

"The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives," the syllabus of the decision reads.

As expected, the leftist outrage erupted instantaneously, fueled largely by the misinformed idea that overturning Roe v. Wade means abortion will be banned nationwide. But, as stated in the above-mentioned Supreme Court syllabus, the authority has actually been returned to individual states and their duly elected lawmakers.

One such misinformed leftist, Parkland shooting survivor Cameron Kasky, was infuriated that those awful Supreme Court justices "just voted to kill women." So he took to Twitter to urge people to go to the homes of said Supreme Court justices to "let them know how you feel."

"Go to the home of every Supreme Court justice who just voted to kill women. Let them know how you feel," Kasky tweeted.

The backlash was immediate:

Kasky decided to delete his original tweet because he is apparently "sick of republicans talking to [him]." But, unfortunately for Kasky, the internet is indeed forever:

Speaking from the White House, President Joe Biden dutifully helped spread the misinformation about the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and took the opportunity to prompt voters to elect more Democrats in November so that Congress can write abortion protections into law. Did the president just let slip the real reason Congress hasn't made any effort to start writing such laws in the nearly two months since Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion was "leaked" in early May?

CNN reporter tries to 'ambush' GOP candidate Kari Lake, IMMEDIATELY regrets it

CNN senior national reporter Kyung Lah thought she'd caught Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake off guard when she asked for an impromptu interview outside an event, but ended up sorely regretting her decision.

Lake, a former Fox news anchor, shook hands with Lah as she approached and immediately pointed out that the CNN reporter wasn't wearing a mask any more, a barbed reference to a contentious interview in October 2021, in which Lah smeared the GOP candidate as a “rising star of the right-wing and proud spreader of lies." Lah asked if Lake had “a minute to chat.”

“I’ll do an interview," Lake answered, "as long as it airs on CNN+. Does that still exist? I didn’t think so, because the people don’t like what you guys are peddling, which is propaganda. Thank you.”

Lake then walked into the event, leaving Lah utterly speechless.

It looks like Lake gained quite a few fans on Twitter:

Kari Lake has been a longtime friend to "The Glenn Beck Program." She joined Glenn last August to tell Glenn why she left the corrupt world of media, what prompted her to enter "the even more corrupt world of politics," and how she plans to make a big difference in her battleground state of Arizona.

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."
