GLENN: You know, I think a case could be made for that, especially when you, you know, when you see things like what happened this weekend on ABC this week with Arianna Huffington. I have to just, I want to show you this because it is remarkable. It shows you how desperate they are to stop you. They are just clawing their way, you know, to hold onto anything. So Arianna Huffington, do we have the original audio of Arianna Huffington and what she said this weekend on this week about me on this show with Roger Ailes? She talked about, you know, right out of the chute. Now, this is ABC television. Right out of the chute she starts talking about, she interrupts Roger Ailes about, don't you think that Glenn Beck is dangerous?
HUFFINGTON: And aren't you concerned about the language that Glenn Beck is using which is, after all, inciting the American people? There's a lot of suffering out there, as you know, and when he talks about people being slaughtered, about who is going to be the next in the
AILES: Well, he was talking about Hitler and Stalin slaughtering people. So
GLENN: All right, stop. So she goes on to say, no, no, no, he was talking about the administration. On yesterday's broadcast I said I never used the word "Slaughter" on the air, I never used it on the air. Because I'm pretty sure that I would remember saying the administration was slaughtering people or was going to slaughter people. That's a pretty hefty charge.
STU: You'd think someone else would have pointed it out at some point, it would be a big news story or something if you were to say such a thing.
GLENN: Be a huge story. So I got on the air and I said no. Now, last night on the network that no, I mean nobody watches, I don't even think the cameramen are watching now, what's his face got on with Arianna Huffington and he says, "We've got to correct the record here. We've got to make sure that everybody knows that there are standards!"
STU: Coming from that idiot, standards.
PAT: The most irresponsible broadcaster maybe of all time.
GLENN: No, no, wait, wait. From one of the most irresponsible broadcast networks of all time.
PAT: Yeah, yeah.
GLENN: Didn't the other clown who said last week that he forgot that Barack Obama was black for about an hour during
PAT: Yeah. And then yesterday it was the Khmer Rouge. It was, he was comparing well, here's this time.
VOICE: What's going on out there in the Republican Party is a kind of frightening almost Cambodia reeducation camp going on in that party where they are going around, people sort of switching their minds around saying if you are not far right, you are not right enough.
STU: That's it.
GLENN: The Khmer Rouge, Khmer Rouge. Now, I am blasted for running a special to correct the history on Hitler, Stalin and Mao and Che to show you they're killers. They're killers. I get hammered for that? He's calling the help cans the Khmer Rouge. All right, got it, got it.
So now Arianna Huffington goes on this network and is talking to the host to correct everything and she actually goes in again on the slaughter thing and she says, well, I have to tell you something: Glenn Beck said on his radio show today and we had the evidence within an hour.
PAT: He lied, darling, and Roger Ailes lied, too.
STU: Is that Michael Jackson or
PAT: That's Arianna, darling. It's so adorable if you don't compare it to Michael Jackson, it's so great.
GLENN: Hang on just a second. We join already in progress a conversation between Arianna Huffington and Michael Jackson.
PAT: No, we don't. No, we don't.
STU: We have to now. We have to. You said it. It's on the radio. We'll be accused of lying!
GLENN: Okay. So she says, we have the evidence of him using the word "Slaughtered." I get up this morning and I see this in my e mail box and I'm like, I really said that Obama was going to slaughter people? I can't wait to see this video. So if I may, her new nickname: Media Matters After a Few Drinks, Arianna Huffington after we denied that we said the president is going to slaughter people, she accuses us of lying. Because of this piece of audio. Now, I want you to know I was talking about Andy Stern in this particular piece of audio, and if she wants to really stand on this one, I mean, if she wants to claim which I'm not if she wants to claim that I think Andy Stern is going to slaughter people, I mean, the guy who said he was going to use the persuasion of power, and we've got their names. We know how they voted and we know where they live, that guy? I mean, we could probably jump there. Sure, if that's the case you want to make. But then that means Arianna has to make the case that Andy Stern is part of this administration because that's her accusation, that I said this administration is slaughtering people. So if you want to go there, Arianna, that Andy Stern is part of this administration and you want to look at his words, okay, we'll do that. Bring it on, girlfriend. But this is her serious point. This is it. This is not a joke. This is her legitimate attempt at coherency. Here it is. Go ahead.
Find the exit. There's one here, here, and here.
PAT: Not you?
GLENN: No. Sarah's doing it.
I told you yesterday buckle up your seatbelt, America.
Okay, stop. I told you yesterday buckle up your seat belt. This is the audio she's using. I want to explain it line by line because it gets confusing if we put it all together.
I should point out at this line that we're not actually talking about buckling a literal seat belt. What we're saying is get prepared because we're in for a bumpy road on the economy.
Find the exit. There's one here, here and here.
Okay. I should point out here that we're not talking about literally exiting the country. We're talking about exiting the economic path we're on.
Find the exit closest to you and prepare for a crash landing.
Okay, I want to point out on this line that we're not actually talking about a plane crashing here. We're talking about a proverbial plane, a down turn in the economy.
Because this plane is coming down because the pilot is intentionally steering it into the trees!
Okay, let me point out here we're not actually talking about Barack Obama literally becoming a pilot, loading Americans onto a plane and then intentionally crashing that literal plane with him as a pilot into the trees. We're talking about the president intentionally implementing policies that put us on an unsustainable economic path, again talking about... the economy.
Most likely it will happen sometime after Christmas. You are going to see this economy come up. We're already seeing it. And now it's going to start coming back down again.
Okay, I should point out. Economies don't actually literally go up and down. They are not objects affected by gravity, in case you're confused. Up and down are terms describing the typical economic measures expanding and contracting. Now, just to review the topics that we've covered so far, it was the economy. Then I changed it to the economy. And then the economy, I threw in a little bit about the economy and now the economy again.
And when you see the effects of what they're doing to the economy, remember these words.
Okay, I want to speak this slowly. This sentence signifies that the words that are to follow are referring to... the economy.
We will survive.
I should point out here that we're not talking about heart function, no, I'm not talking about that.
STU: No, no.
GLENN: We're not talking about all of us collectively continuing to breathe. No, no, no. I am still talking about... the economy.
We'll do better than survive. We will thrive, as long as these people are not in control. They are taking you to a place to be slaughtered.
Oh, my goodness. There it is.
PAT: There it is. The lie.
GLENN: That's the gotcha moment.
PAT: That's what they said, darling, he lies.
GLENN: Michael, is that you again?
PAT: It's me, Arianna, darling.
GLENN: Now, some might say that after making a few points about the economy and the economy and then switching to the economy and then going right into the economy and then introducing this sentence by saying, "When you see the effects of the economy, remember these words," that this sentence about slaughtering might, might also be me speaking about the economy as well. But no.
GLENN: No. With 30 plus years of broadcast experience and records of me saying just really stupid things on the radio and television, with 30 years to pick from, Arianna Huffington makes this her main point when going on ABC television. And in her follow-up defense, she uses this audio. She's claiming that this is a reference to a literal slaughter being carried out or soon to be carried out by the president of the United States. Well, when I saw this, I originally thought, whew, dodged a bullet there. Wait a minute. Was I thinking a literal bullet? Who was shooting the gun? And then in the very next sentence, I realized, wait a minute. It wasn't about the economy, uh uh. Because I didn't hear the next sentence on the tape. She cut it off there. That's probably where the evidence was. We were talking about literal murder, right? She stopped the transcript there. Let's check. What's the next line?
Americans are not the people that do this: Why are you here? "To get some money." What kind of money? "Obama money." Where's it coming from? "Obama." Where did Obama get it? "I don't know. It's cash. I don't know. I don't know where he got it from, but he's giving it to us, to help us. We love him. That's why we voted for him!"
Did we cut it off before the gunfire?
GLENN: Or the machetes being pulled out?
STU: No, there was no machetes, no machetes there.
GLENN: Hmmm. Another economic point about government economics and handouts. That's weird.
So let me just see if I have this right. Arianna's point in a nutshell is that we made an economic point, another economic point, another economic point, another economic point, then followed that one with an economic point and then introduced one more economic point and then seamlessly moved into a warning of literal genocide by our president without any transition whatsoever and then seamlessly weaved back into another economic point with no transition. Wow, we are so clever, aren't we?
GLENN: It's almost like Oliver Stone's movie JFK, or at least the Keith Hernandez episode of Seinfeld, I'm not sure which. Then Mr. Beck's point paused, in midair mind you, and made a left turn to genocide. And then turned around and came back to the left. Back and to the left. Back and to the left. Finally landing on the economy. That is one magic loogie. Or in this case Arianna Huffington, one magic Looney.
STU: But that, luckily that's her fifth or sixth point. That's not the lead point that she made a gigantic case about on national television.
PAT: No, that was my whole point.
STU: Michael, I don't understand the that was very much say the children in Arianna's voice.
PAT: The children. This has nothing like that.
GLENN: I want to tell you our sponsor this half hour is Food Insurance. Food Insurance, in case you are being slaughtered by this, by this administration. They just, they take out giant machetes and just cut your arms off.
STU: That's what's happening all around America right now. That's what's happening.
GLENN: That's what's happening.
PAT: See? I knew it!
GLENN: How desperate they must be.
