Glenn Beck: Tom Hanks racism flow chart



Glenn Beck is seen here on the Insider Extreme broadcast. Learn more...

GLENN: All right. So, Pat wants to wreck Tom Hanks even more and --

PAT: He's doing it himself.

GLENN: Here it is.

VOICE: -- to connect that today, do you support President Obama's decision to escalate the war in Afghanistan, to take down Al Qaeda and the fact that he has not ended a war in Iraq yet?

PAT: Remember, his initial statement on MSNBC was that World War II was racist and terrorist and that sounds just like what's going on today. Right? Do you remember that?

HANKS: I'm not so sure that -- I'm not -- even though we do have people that are trying to kill each other and shooting guns at each other, the connection there is not as clear-cut and I think it would be foolish to assume that it is. What's going on in Iraq is completely singular to Iraq, and what is going on in Afghanistan is completely singular to Afghanistan. I've made other --

GLENN: Hold on. So -- just a second. So, the American people who are stupid and racist understand the difference between an Afghani and an Iraqi race-wise?

PAT: When there is a progressive in the office of the President, yes. Yes, but only --

GLENN: Okay. This is a very -- could we get a flowchart on this one?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I think I need a Tom Hanks racism flowchart. When you are attacked by the empire of Japan --

PAT: Right.

GLENN: -- you go right next -- the next box is racist war. When you are attacked by people in Afghanistan, not the country but the people of Afghanistan and not all of the people, people who are being protected by the government of Afghanistan, you can go directly to -- yes. That's a singular event?

STU: Singular event. We've got to do that.

GLENN: But only if there is a side box. It's a "yes" or "no" box. Is it a progressive President? I shouldn't say that. Is there a -- is it a -- is it a nonprogressive President, a progressive President, or a really progressive?

PAT: It's a really progressive President. So then --

GLENN: Then it's okay.

PAT: So, then it's okay.

GLENN: It's okay. All right. And then if you have a guy who's threatening -- has already been proven to threaten his neighbors, says he has biological weapons, blah, blah, blah, is doing that, it's so good that he is -- nobody knows if it's even true or not, even in his own country --

PAT: Then the guy who attacked him is an evil racist --

GLENN: Racist.

PAT: -- hatemonger, warmonger.

GLENN: Got it.

PAT: But the guy who follows up on that war and continues it, that's a single event.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Stu.

STU: I've got to give props to a caller who just called in -- I don't know how they remembered this, but going back to The Real America, your first bestseller.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

STU: It's sad because it's like crossing a line that we hoped we would never cross which was this is -- you actually have a subsection in the book called Tom Hanks and Jimmy Stewart, The Good Celebrities.

PAT: Oh, no.

STU: Tom Hanks is the ultimate celebrity in the real America.

PAT: You are screwing Tom? Tom, what are you doing? You say.

STU: "Tom, I don't know what you think about politics. I don't know who you voted for. I don't know what your stance is on the War on Terror, and I'm happy about that." And that's what it goes into here is Tom Hanks, how he never blabs his mouth and runs it like an idiot.

PAT: Tom, don't you know me? We're working this for you. We're -- they're in their pitching for you, Tom.

STU: You've got to ask if he's working for pot.

PAT: Are you working for pot or not? You say.

STU: Isn't that sad, though?

Glenn: Wow.

PAT: He's really -- I mean, this is bad for him because, yeah, everybody loves Tom Hanks and it has -- you know, in part it's -- he's obviously got great roles and we like his personality and he shows up on all these talk shows and he seems like a normal guy and then he opens his mouth and starts this stuff and it's like, Oh, geez. And the other day, when he was on MSNBC, he was all about politics. They asked him about Obama and what kind of job he's doing and he's, Oh, he's doing a fantastic job and he's up against a Congress -- a do-nothing Congress and I don't know how he's doing so much. And then, when he's pressed on being political now, completely back tracks.

HANKS: -- movie about Afghanistan that is now an almost "Gone With the Wind," Charlie Wilson's War in which the Soviets were there and the Pakistanis and the Afghanis were funding a completely different sort of thing. To ask me, I'm an actor. Do I support what's going on? I'm not a politician and I'm not a statistician and I'm not a legislator. I'm a guy who looks at what's going on and understands that there is nothing but struggle and inside that struggle are the proclivities of human kind.

PAT: Proclivities.

HANKS: Like Ernie Pyle himself said, Anybody who likes going to war is a damn fool.

GLENN: Did he say Gomer Pyle?

PAT: Ernie.

GLENN: Oh, okay. I thought it was Gomer Pyle.

HANKS: Anybody who wants to walk away from a war unfinished is a damn fool.

GLENN: Stop for a second. So, I don't understand what you're saying because we're in -- what is that?

STU: He's saying -- I think he's saying it was bad when Bush was in but now we've got --

PAT: We've got to finish the job.

GLENN: Let me just say this. I think Gomer Pyle said, Tom Hanks, you're a damn fool. I just --

PAT: I just love how when he's pressed about Obama's war, oh, boy, does he backtrack. Oh, I can't say anything bad about the chosen one, my progressive overlord, Barack Obama. No, no, no, no, no. That's a separate thing. I'm just an actor. I don't -- even though I just pontificated on all kinds of lefty politics two days ago on MSNBC and I compared World War II to today and how racist it was and what I'm saying makes absolutely zero sense now, but I can't say a negative word about my progressive overlord, Barack Obama, Barack Obama.

GLENN: You better not -- (Laughter.)

Voice: That's right. That's right, Tom.

GLENN: We should put this on the microphone now of every speech that Barack Obama gives and just say, Ladies and gentlemen, the President of the United States. (Music playing.) I'm just here to help heal people with healthcare, and I know you mere mortals can't get the job done. That's why I'll use my power to get it done. (Music playing.) What I've said in the past, I've been clear. Read it in Genesis. I think I was very, very clear.

PAT: And that was you?

Glenn: That was me.

PAT: That was you?

Glenn: That was me. It was Barack Obama, yeah. Didn't you read the part about the jawbone up the ass? That was just a -- so, we have that and, you know, the healthcare thing happened in Genesis. Deuteronomy, I was talking about cap and trade.

PAT: Really? I didn't know that.

GLENN: Yeah. And the reconciliation I think was in Jeremiah or somewhere in that area. I can't remember for sure.

STU: Card check, is that in --

GLENN: Card check? Yeah. That's in Paul.

STU: Wow. Card check is in Paul.

PAT: Yeah. Where he says blessed are the unions? Is that where --

GLENN: Well, translation, you know, I said a lot of things and they translated it, you know, in other ways and I'm just -- I've got to run. I've got another planet to heal. So, thank you and God bless -- well, I bless America.

PAT: Wait a minute. There are other planets with other life on it?

GLENN: I don't know. I'm not Barack Obama.

PAT: Did we just find a -- we've got a big story here.

GLENN: Well, if the overlord says, we will all watch TV and say, Yes, President Obama. I understand now. Thank you, oh blessed one. I'm wondering if, you know -- I was on the air with somebody today and they're, you know, like, So, you're not a truther? No, no, I'm not.

PAT: Oh, geez.

GLENN: You don't know there's a lot of stuff in his life early on where he -- I said, yeah. No. I'm concentrating on the things that are taking away our rights right now. But then I've been thinking about it now that the overlord did stop by, we should check because he may have been born someplace and carried in on the wings of -- what are those birds that carried Kim Jong-Il in after his birth?

PAT: Yeah. He might have been born in Bethlehem.

GLENN: Yeah. I don't know.

STU: I don't think Kim Jong-Il was born in Bethlehem.

PAT: No, but Barack may have been. And if he was born in Bethlehem, that's fine.

GLENN: May I say the occupied territories around --

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: -- Bethlehem.

STU: That's right. Yeah.

GLENN: So -- and, you know, and his father, all he wanted to do was just live there in peace away from all them damn Jews.

Oops. Did I say too much? Oops. I didn't -- wait a minute. No. Just think about me as the baby Jesus and I love the Jews, too. I do. Look.

PAT: I mean, geez.

GLENN: I'm sorry. I just read -- you know, I haven't been -- I haven't been paying attention to all of the news and I just read today what is going on in Israel and I just can't believe how we are selling Israel out.

PAT: Especially over Jerusalem. I mean, this is a very --

GLENN: This is a happy day.

PAT: The capital city?

GLENN: This is a happy day for Jeremiah Wright. Jeremiah Wright is like, Yeah, I've been telling him. He's finally taking on his Zionist masters and telling them now it is. There's a lot of people saying that today, I'll bet, a lot of people. A lot of them friends of Jeremiah Wright, I'm guessing, but don't worry about that. He's just a -- oh, he's just a crazy old man.

PAT: Like an uncle, really.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

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

An official at the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations' health agency, has issued a warning, calling the coronavirus "the worst enemy you can imagine" and more of a threat than "any terrorist attack," during a media briefing on Tuesday.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO's director general, said that a vaccine for the coronavirus will likely take 18 months to develop. The virus has reportedly killed hundreds and infected tens of thousands of people, primarily in China.

"To be honest, a virus is more powerful in creating political, social and economic upheaval than any terrorist attack. It's the worst enemy you can imagine," added Ghebreyesus.

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck noted that the same agency in charge of developing this life-saving vaccine, has taken the time to officially change the disease's name to COVID-19, citing the concern of "stigmatizing" any specific geographical location, individual, or group of people.
