Anti-Glenn Beck Haiku day



Auction: Signed copy of "We The People" mosaic from the Glenn Beck Studio

GLENN: I am so excited that I have been inspired by Jim Wallis who is an advocate of social justice which in the way that Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama or Jim Wallis mean it, it is Marxism and redistribution of wealth. I've been telling you earlier that the that Jim Wallis, a spiritual and political advisor to the president of the United States, has mounted a campaign, an ad campaign against me, and I think this one is his isn't an ad campaign, right? This is just a "Get the churches against Glenn Beck" campaign, "I think all Christians should boycott Glenn Beck." I haven't followed it that much, Jim. You are really not worth that much time.

Then Van Jones, his organization that he co founded, they started an advertiser boycott where I've lost 56,000 advertisers at this point at yet somehow or another I'm still on the air. It's weird.

Then the third one is now SEIU. They have now mounted a campaign against my advertisers and I'm thinking, wow, I don't think this I think this is history. I think yet again we will be in the history books that won't be written because, well, progressives write history books. But this is historic. I don't believe it has ever happened before where the president has three advisors target someone to try to put them out of business. I've never even heard of that. Well, I think Woodrow Wilson did that and then he put people in jail, too. But gee, Glenn, that's crazy talk. That's not where we're headed, is it?

So today this Jewish Funds For Justice, according to the Washington Post, is tweeting about me.

PAT: What kind of haikus do we have so far? I'm looking forward to some good

GLENN: Haikus?

PAT: haikus today because as it says in the Bible, I'm glad to see a religious group getting together to mock you all day because I think that's what religious groups should be about.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. I am dumbfounded here's a haiku. Haiku against Glenn Beck is their

PAT: Wonder why they shows haikus.

GLENN: You've got to be kidding me, haiku. I am dumbfounded we still are talking about Beck, an ill informed speck. Oh, that's

STU: I thought haikus specifically were not supposed to rhyme.

PAT: They are not. I don't think they are.

GLENN: Whatever you do to the least of my brothers you do unto me.

STU: You know what's a really terrible format is a haiku. That's awful.

GLENN: Nazis and commies were not exactly big church people anyway. Wow.

STU: Awful.

PAT: This is working well.

GLENN: Nazi/commie church, bet they have real sharp outfits, mitre and jackboots.

STU: Wow.

GLENN: If Beck had his way, all the churches would go away, God lonely Sunday.

STU: God lonely Sunday.

GLENN: This is helping your cause? Oh, my goodness.

STU: Which Keith Olbermann writer wrote that? That's fantastic. God

GLENN: No, that one was from George Soros.

STU: God forgive you.

GLENN: But anyway, what they are trying to do is trying to take me down because now, I mean, think of this. Think of this. What we have what we have been saying is we have radical revolutionaries, Marxists, and anticapitalists. Right? Andy Stern, SEIU, workers of the world unite, it's time for businesses to understand that it's time now to share the wealth. Those are the words of Andy Stern. Bare minimum anticapitalist.

Marxist, Jim Jones, redistribution of wealth. That is absolutely what the gospel is all about. He tells a story, do we have the audio of him telling the story?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: About when he went to meet, I don't know, Dorothy

PAT: Dorothy Day.

GLENN: Dorothy Day. And she was a radical and anyway, so listen to the story.

VOICE: When my story happened in Chicago, she was just leaving as we were coming on the scene. So we were living in Chicago. I went to Trinity Seminary, we were living in uptown, I get a call one day from a priest. And Dorothy Day opened a Catholic border house on Kenmore up on the north side. She wants to meet you; do you have time. Do I have time? We had one community car, was always broken, and so I ran, you know, 20 blocks. And I'm in the parlor of the Catholic worker and in walks the great lady. Dorothy wrote a book about her life called Love is the Measure, but she wasn't ever soft. Very tough. So you're a radical student like me, right? You are a Marxist like me, right? Yeah. And now you're a Catholic. I said, well, I'm a Christian.

PAT: I love that of the three he will not cop to Catholicism.

GLENN: I'm not a Catholic! I'm a radical Marxist!

PAT: Yes, I'm a Marxist but, no, no, I'm not a Catholic, no. No, I'm a Christian.

GLENN: Okay.

PAT: I love that!

GLENN: All right. So there you go. And then the third one that is mounting the attack is a communist! A radical communist who has in the past called for, you know, a revolution in the country. I mean, you've got to be kidding me! You've got to be kidding me!

PAT: The great capitalism, that whole thing that we're moving away from great capitalism, eco capitalism.

GLENN: And white people, whites and companies are poisoning minority neighborhoods. I mean, it's

PAT: On purpose.

GLENN: It's incredible, it's incredible. Redistribute the wealth, give them the wealth, give them the wealth. I mean, so it's incredible that nobody in the media will report on this, but you know the truth.

Now, while they're doing that, I would like to show, I would like to show what real charity is like. So help me make this example, will you? I told you a couple of days ago that we were selling a set piece from the show for the 8/28 Restoring Honor program I'm going to be doing on August 28th at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. I invite you and your family to be there. This thing is going to cost probably, it's estimated between $1 1/2 and $2 million to pull off. So I've asked for your help making donations to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation and this event. Because when I think of honor, I think of George Washington and I think about special operations, I think about our military. They are the only people that I believe in anymore really. And so we were going to raise awareness for them and hopefully we'll have some money to donate to them as well. Special Operations Warrior Foundation, specialops.org if you'd like to donate, okay? If you don't, that's fine. I've been starting an auction. The first auction is up on Upillar and we're auctioning off the 8 or the 9/12 project poster that was on my set forever. This is the original piece that we made to convince you that you weren't alone. The auction ends on Friday. It is currently at $20,000. It's 8 feet by 8 feet. I mean, I don't know where you're going to put this thing. I mean, probably a restaurant or a business or something. But it's 8 feet by 8 feet, and it is a piece of American history now. It was on the set of this show, like it or hate it, this show played a role in the last year of America. Okay.

I was going to announce on Monday but I'm going to announce today because I just think this is so great that this haiku war is going on. You keep doing your haiku war. That's good. Here's what I'm going to do. On Monday and I'll give you all the details. If you're watching the television show, you've seen it in the background, I unveiled it recently. If you are watching on the Insider Extreme and Dom, if you can, get shots of the three, faith, hope and charity. These are and so are on the television show, these are copies of paintings that I and Paula Hawkins have done. This is an idea that I had, I don't even know when, maybe around Thanksgiving and I started with the George Washington Hope. And then we did Faith with Samuel Adams and Charity with Ben Franklin. And I'll tell you why some other time why I picked these three people but it's pretty obvious. This is the original painting. Now, these are currently hanging in my office. This is the original painting of the Charity, and there are three of them. And Stu, if you can go in and shoot these in my office later today and put them up for Insider Extreme or have somebody make a package of this, but this is the original painting and these are I mean, I think the posters are nice, but I think the paintings are stunning, don't you? I mean, the texture on the painting and everything else, these are really stunning paintings and they're, what is that, about three feet by two feet? These you can hang and I mean, I'd hang them in my house. They're beautiful, beautiful paintings. Here's what I'm going to do. On Monday I am auctioning off the original set, and I'm going to reserve the right to sell them as individuals or as a cluster because they may get more money as individuals and so I'm going to you can bid on them two ways, as individuals or a cluster. And here's what I'm going to do. Hope is George Washington. Hope comes from truth. It comes from honor. If you have honor and integrity and you tell the truth. There will be hope. So to restore honor, all of the proceeds from the George Washington painting will go to Restoring Honor, 8/28, the event that we're going to do in front of the Lincoln Memorial in August.

Imagine sometime next year, getting called before HUWAC – the House Un-Woke Activities Committee.

"Are you or have you ever been a member of the un-woke?"

Something like that is not as far-fetched as you might think.

Last week, Robert Reich, the former Secretary of Labor during the Clinton administration, now a UC Berkeley professor, tweeted this:

Since the 1970s, there have been dozens of "Truth Commissions" around the world like the kind Robert Reich wants in America. Most of these have been set up in Africa and Latin America. Usually it happens in countries after a civil war, or where there's been a regime change – a dictator is finally overthrown, and a commission is set up to address atrocities that happened under the dictator. Or, as in the commissions in East Germany and Czechoslovakia, atrocities under communism. Or, in the most famous example, South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation commission addressed the decades of apartheid that ravaged that nation.

These commissions usually conclude with an official final report. These commissions and reports have served as a means of governments trying to close a dark chapter of their country's history, or provide emotional catharsis, as a way to generally move on. Sometimes it kind of works for people, most of the time it leaves people clamoring for more justice.

Here's how one professor described truth commissions in an article in The Conversation last year. He wrote:

The goal of a truth commission… is to hold public hearings to establish the scale and impact of a past injustice, typically involving wide-scale human rights abuses, and make it part of the permanent, unassailable public record. Truth commissions also officially recognize victims and perpetrators in an effort to move beyond the painful past… Some have been used cynically as tools for governments to legitimize themselves by pretending they have dealt with painful history when they have only kicked the can down the road.

See, this is the problem with a lot of "Truth" commissions – they are inherently political. Even if you trust your government and give them all the benefit of the doubt in the world that their Truth commission is trying to do the right thing, it is ALWAYS going to be political. Because these truth commissions are never set up by those who have LOST power in government. They're always established by those who have WON power.

The Deputy Executive Director of the International Center for Transitional Justice says one of the main points in these Truth commissions is that "the victims become protagonists."

A Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility.

So, who are the victims in Robert Reich's America? People like him, members of the far-Left who had to endure the atrocities of four years of a president with different political ideas. What an injustice. I mean, the left's suffering during the Trump administration is almost on the level of apartheid or genocide – so we totally need a Truth commission.

There have been lots of calls for the U.S. to have its own Truth and Reconciliation commission, especially around racial injustice.

This past June, Democratic Congresswoman Barbara Lee of California introduced legislation to establish the " United States Commission on Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation."

Ibram X. Kendi – the high priest of anti-racism, and author of Target's current favorite book " Antiracist Baby" – proposes a Constitutional anti-racism amendment. This amendment would:

establish and permanently fund the Department of Anti-racism (DOA) comprised of formally trained experts on racism and no political appointees. The DOA would be responsible for pre-clearing all local, state and federal public policies to ensure they won't yield racial inequity, monitor those policies, investigate private racist policies when racial inequity surfaces, and monitor public officials for expressions of racist ideas. The DOA would be empowered with disciplinary tools to wield over and against policymakers and public officials who do not voluntarily change their racist policy and ideas.

If you think that is far-fetched, you haven't been paying attention to the Left's growing radicalism. In a Joe Biden-Kamala Harris administration, a Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility. And of course, such a DOA would never stop at policing government.

We're in a dangerous, precarious moment in our history. Given the events of 2020, should Democrats gain the White House, the Senate, and the House, how many commissions will be in our future? They will suddenly have plenty of political capital to drag the nation through years of commission hearings.

And the Left's form of justice is never satisfied. You think it will stop at a T&R commission on race? MSNBC's Chris Hayes tweeted this month about the need for a commission to deal with Americans who are skeptical about wearing masks:

Or what about a Truth commission on religion? I mean, look at those reckless churches spreading Covid this year. Or this would be a big one – a T&R commission on climate change deniers.

The Left is highly selective when it comes to truth. That's why they are the very last group you want in charge of anything with "Truth and Reconciliation" in the title.

This is one of the most incredibly frustrating things about the Left in America today. The Left insists there is no such thing as absolute truth, while simultaneously insisting there are certain approved truths that are undeniable.

So, you can't question "Science" – even though that's pretty much what every great scientist in history did.

You can't question racism as the explanation for all of existence – because, well, just because.

You can't question third-party "Fact-checkers" – because the powers that be, mainly Big Tech right now, have decided they are the Truth referees and you have to trust what they say because they're using certified external fact-checkers. They just forgot to tell you that they actually fund these third-party fact-checkers. It's like if McDonald's told you to trust third-party health inspectors that they were paying for.

The Left thinks it has a monopoly on Truth. They're the enlightened ones, because they've had the correct instruction, they're privy to the actual facts. It's psychotic arrogance. If you don't buy what they're selling, even if you're just skeptical of it, it's because you either don't have the facts, you willingly deny the facts, or you're simply incapable of grasping the truth because you're blinded by your raging racism problem. It's most likely the racism problem.

The Left never learns from its own preaching. For the past 60-plus years they've decried the House Un-American Activities Committee for trying to root out communists, getting people canceled, ruining Hollywood careers, etcetera. But a HUAC-type committee is precisely what Robert Reich is describing and many on the Left want. It's not enough for Trump to be voted out of office. Americans who helped put him there must be punished. They don't want reconciliation, they want retribution. Because the Left doesn't simply loathe Donald Trump, the Left loathes YOU.

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?

This is a moment "Cynical Theories" author James Lindsay probably hoped would never come. The liberal mathematician and host of the "New Discourses Podcast" recently came out as "unhappily" voting Republican, including for President Donald Trump, because the Democratic Party is now being controlled by a far-left movement that seeks to destroy our country and the U.S. Constitution.

He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain why this election isn't "Trump versus Biden." It's Trump versus a "movement that wants to tear apart American society at its very foundation." Lindsay warned that if it isn't stopped, the left can toss out our rights by rewriting the Constitution — or abolishing it altogether.

"A lot of people don't understand what's happening with the election we have right now," he said. "They think it's a choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. And at the surface level, of course, it is. We're voting for each candidate to be duly put into the office of president. But that's not what we really have going on. We have, in Donald Trump, a man who's going to govern as we've all seen — the way he feels like he's going to govern. And we have in Joe Biden, a man captured by a movement that wants to tear apart the American society at its very foundation."

Lindsay noted the popular leftist narratives that call to "abolish anything they don't like," which now includes the U.S. Constitution. He added that "this is the movement that is controlling the Democratic Party."

"It is my belief, that there has been a largely effective kind of silent coup of the Democratic Party, that's turned it completely under the control of this movement. And that's what we're going to be electing with Joe Biden. So I can't do it," he said.

Watch the video below for more details:

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn Beck goes straight to the source of the biggest story in the country with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who takes us directly into Hunter Biden's alleged laptop.

Despite Big Tech's attempts to squash this story, there should be a mad scramble in the media to get to the bottom of major corruption allegations, but they're willfully ignoring it. However, this is not just a story about Hunter Biden. This is all about Joe Biden. It's a story Glenn has been investigating for over a year that traces back to Ukraine and China. It goes directly to the root of corruption within our political system: How politicians use their family members to enrich the entire clan and sell out their country. While the media looks the other way, Glenn asks Mayor Giuliani to show us the evidence. Giuliani details the chain of possession of the laptop and reveals news that he only had possession of the laptop days before the New York Post story broke. He says, "I reported this the day after I saw it."

He also drops a major bombshell on the show and says Big Tech doesn't want you to see evidence that "establishes with texts, documents, contracts" that "Joe Biden was a 10% partner with a Chinese communist … and there are witnesses that will come forward and testify to it."
