Glenn Beck: Meltdown on MSNBC



Lawrence O'Donnell's meltdown

GLENN:. So, the left is just melting down. Here is Lawrence O'Donnell. Lawrence O'Donnell, is he a news man over at NBC or is he just a talking head?

STU: He's an actor. He was on, like, West Wing or something.

PAT: Really?

PAT: I think so. I think that's his background, his expertise.

STU: Lawrence O'Donnell was a --

GLENN: He was a news man?

STU: No. I think he played one on TV.

GLENN: You've got to be kidding me. Wow. No. He's a lead guy.

STU: Acting, played Lee Hatcher, the family attorney on Big Love. And also --

GLENN: What?

PAT: Oh, man.

STU: And also was a producer on -- he played President Bartlett's father.

PAT: He played -- no.

GLENN: What?

STU: He appeared in a role --

GLENN: No. You're --

PAT: He played Martin Sheen's father?

STU: It must have been obviously in a flashback.

GLENN: Is it the same guy? Is there a picture of him?

STU: Yeah. It's the guy. It's the guy.

PAT: That's weird. Well, he's --

GLENN: He had a meltdown. Listen to this meltdown on NBC.

SPEAKER: This program is why we did not have --

PAT: First of all, there's, like, a former Bush pundit on here.

GLENN: What are they talking about?

PAT: They're talking about the anti-terrorist methods of the Bush administration, as compared to the Obama administration.

GLENN: Which, by the way -- I love the fact that now the people in the Obama administration, their defense is: We did it exactly the way Bush did.

PAT: Exactly.

GLENN: We're doing exactly the same thing. Wasn't that the problem?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Wasn't that what the left was saying was, Bush he's insane. He can't do all these things. He's out of control. We're doing exactly what the Bush administration did. That is not a good defense for you.

PAT: So, this is on the morning show thing they do. So, the Bush pundit is speaking and then Lawrence comes in.

SPEAKER: -- after the attack.

SPEAKER: Lawrence O'Donnell.

O'DONNELL: Well, you're lying about the West Coast thing. That's been covered very clearly, but you as a former speech writer in the White House, you took an oath of office when you took that job that you might or might not remember. You actually published a book that says that the President of the United States on its entitle, the President is inviting the next attack. Isn't it true that the President you work for invited the first attack by having no idea --

SPEAKER: All right. All right.

SPEAKER: That's ridiculous.

O'DONNELL: You just admitted that when you were hit on 9-11, you said we didn't know who hit us.

SPEAKER: Lawrence, Lawrence --

O'DONNELL: You said We didn't know who hit us. You were told who was going to before we were hit on 9-11 and your administration invited the first attack --

SPEAKER: Lawrence, Lawrence --

O'DONNELL: -- for which you should --

GLENN: Lar --

SPEAKER: Listen. Here's the record. When the Obama administration first approach was working, the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, the bombing being of the U.S.S. Cole, the bombing of --

O'DONNELL: Talk about the President from the day he was sworn in until 9-11 --

SPEAKER: Hold on. Can I get a word in?

SPEAKER: Let's stop, let's stop.

GLENN: Stop, stop. Listen to Lawrence O'Donnell. They have tried to cut his microphone off because --

PAT: He's screaming in the background. Yeah.

GLENN: He's screaming in the background. You're only hearing him through ambient noise, room noise, from Joe Scarborough's microphone. I mean, as a guy who's done audio my whole life, I know what it sounds like. NBC tried to shut Lawrence O'Donnell's microphone off.

PAT: And he kept yelling from across the room.

GLENN: So, why is NBC now trying to silence the left? I mean, they are falling apart.

PAT: And it was so bad Scarborough had to actually pick you want his lapel and speak into his collar where the microphone was so that they would know --

GLENN: Listen for the -- listen for the room noise. It sounds like Lawrence O'Donnell is way off mike because he is. Listen.

SPEAKER: We're going to a break right now and I'm going to be interviewing Marc by myself. We'll be right back.

GLENN: Okay.

PAT: So, he had to say -- from this discussion because he's out of control. You talk about -- you talk about hate and anger.

GLENN: I just wish they would stop with all this rage. I mean --

PAT: Geez. It's scaring me.

GLENN: I remember --

PAT: Have you seen this before?

GLENN: I've seen it before.

PAT: Where have you seen it?

GLENN: I don't know. Back in the Sixties or Seventies.

PAT: You mean the Democratic National Convention of 1968?

GLENN: Let me go back to -- play cut 650. Let me play one more cut from NBC news. This is how they're now describing -- this is how they're now describing the tea party movement.

SPEAKER: The tea party has a bit of an integrity problem, as everybody from birthers to open racists to out-right Nazis are actually on the team and no one involved, including its leadership, seems to mind that fact.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. I'm glad he brings this up. What were they? Birthers.

PAT: Birthers.

GLENN: That was started by the Hillary Clinton people.

PAT: Open racists.

GLENN: Open racists like Jeremiah Wright.

PAT: And -- let's see. The actual Nazis.

STU: Actual Nazis.

GLENN: I don't believe we have found any actual Nazis, but we have found 9-11 truthers in Van Jones or communists, Maoists, Marxists. He sounded to me like he was describing Obama administration because he was, like, and nobody seems to care. Nobody in a reared leadership role seems to care. It sounds like the Obama administration.

PAT: And which is worse? I don't know. The tea party movement -- the executive office or the tea party movement?

GLENN: One of them we should be a little more careful. Do you know what I mean?

STU: And, of course, they immediately after this went into how when you were talking to someone who was supposedly in the tea party running in Texas and mentioned they were a truth err, you immediately said you would not vote for them. So, when you said -- when they said, so, no one in the leadership doesn't have any idea or doesn't seem to care, it does seem that when you found out about one, you did seem to care.

GLENN: They always try to make me, which I'm not, try to make me the leader of the Tea Parties or whatever, but that doesn't really work for you. Oh. And the birther thing, too. I've been exposing the birther thing, too. It's just amazing. So, please, don't even -- it's just amazing. Listen. If you're in the tea party movement, you have to be very, very careful because -- I warned you about this actually in Common Sense. There are enemies within and without in our country and there are two things that you need to worry about, extremists, most Americans are not extremists. So, just make sure you know, you know, in your little local group, who you're dealing with. Most people are not extremists. And most people don't -- the answers don't need to be extreme. They need to be found in the Constitution and, you know, I know a lot of people that are entrenched in power will find that extreme and that's where you're extremism needs to be. It's just extreme Constitutionalists. That's good. The rest of it, just be very careful and the other thing you need to look out for is the infiltration of politicians. The politicians are going to look at it and go, yeah, I just -- boy, I'm like you so much. I'm like you. No, you're not. You're a weasely politician. I haven't seen your come to Jesus moment yet, GOP. You got one? I would like to hear it. Otherwise, you're going to -- you're going to witness a rerun of 1934, because Obama knows something that you don't want to admit. Two thirds of the stimulus money's about to be spent right before the election. You better have a real platform.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
