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.

Following the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, a transgender activist called for a "Supreme Court Assassination Challenge" on Twitter, according to screenshots captured of the now-deleted tweet.

Activist Eli Erlick, a founding member of Trans Student Educational Resources (TSER) and creator of the controversial "gender identity" teaching tool for children called the "Gender Unicorn," tweeted and later deleted the disturbing remark on Friday, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) also caught a screenshot of the tweet before it was deleted.

"The unhinged radical left is calling for the assassination of our Supreme Court Justices. That's not the way to disagree with a decision in America. It is unacceptable, and Biden’s DOJ must immediately act," Blackburn responded on Twitter.

Erlich then tried to play off her call to assassinate Supreme Court justices as a hilarious joke only Gen Z and Millennials would understand, apparently not understanding the seriousness of the attempted assassination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh just three weeks ago.

Erlick isn't the only Left-winger to make incendiary calls since the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision. Here are just a few examples:

  • Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) called on people to “defy" the Supreme Court.
  • Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) called for people to get “into the streets” alongside radical communist leader who wants to 'overthrow' the American system.
  • Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) yelled "F*** Clarence Thomas" on a public stage for all to see and hear.
  • House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) suggested that Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh lied to Congress.
  • And of course, "TheView" host Whoopi Goldberg issued a disgusting racist threat toward Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program, BlazeTV hosts Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere took a look at these and other stunning examples of leftist lunacy over the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Many members of the far-left already are calling for a ‘Night of Rage’ after the Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and the White House has been discussing plans to defy the ruling too. In fact, one idea floated by Biden Administration officials, according to the New York Times, includes providing abortions on military bases. So, will America experience another summer of riots? Are YOUR taxpayer dollars at risk? And what does this mean for deep-blue states? Josh Hammer, legal expert and opinion editor for Newsweek, joins Glenn to discuss what may come next...

Transcript

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Josh Hammer, he's the opinion editor of Newsweek. He's the host of the Josh Hammer show. He is really quite brilliant. One of the leading minds in the conservative movement, I think. Josh Hammer joins us now.

To tell us, what did you find in this decision?

JOSH: Glenn, great to be back with you, on such a momentous, and really such an emotional day, honestly. So, you know, look, as you said, this dropped recently. Funny enough, I was in the middle of getting a guest lecture from an organization on the advisory board as to when it drops. So I barely had any time to kind of skim through, let alone guess the concerning dissenting opinions. But it looks like this looks very similar, to the draft opinion that was leaked, by the Politico story, a month and a half ago, in early May. And I think those of us who were praying that the five justices from this leaked draft opinion, would have the fortitude to stiffen their spines against this unprecedented assault. Now knows that our prayers were answered, Glenn. That's really my takeaway right now.

This looks a lot like the leaked opinion. Justice Thomas and Justice Kavanaugh have some reconcurring opinions.

But unbelievable. And really just holding aside the constitutional law stuff for a second hear. Just speaking as pro-lifers, on a day like today, I think we really just need to pause. And I tweeted this out earlier. We need to just be grateful for our half century of pro-life activist forbearers. You know, this -- Glenn, this issue could have gone away after 1973. That was a long time ago. 1973. I mean, this issue could have just gone away. We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to the pro-life moral activist. Political activist. And, of course, yes. Legal activist. Who fought day in and day out, that makes sure this great injustice stayed front and center of our national, political conscience. And in many days, the culmination of a half century of fighting for truth and justice. But in many ways, it's also a new beginning for the pro-life fight as well, interestingly.

STU: How do you mean a new beginning for the fight? I just it's going to turn, I think we're going to see abortion turn even darker in those states that allow it. Is that -- is that what you're meaning by this?

JOSH: Well, look, for a half century now, Roe vs. Wade, and its project any, specifically, the Planned Parenthood versus Casey case of 1992.

They took away from the states obviously. They arrogated authority away from the states, the ability to attempt to nationally codify one view of the morality of abortion.

It happened to be a profoundly immoral view. So these -- the fight now shifts to the states. And the pro-life activists. And all the 50 states. Especially, obviously in red states. Purple states. I mean, admittedly some blue states like New York and California, probably won't be able to touch them there.

But we have to make sure that our side is well positioned in the state Capitols for every red, purplish, probably even light blue state, to make sure we fight for successful, cogent, and morally consistent pro-life legislation. The state of Oklahoma, actually, just north of Texas. Right where you are now, Glenn. They have been leading on this actually. Governor Kevin Stitt signed into law, a fantastic pro-life bill there in Oklahoma. A few weeks ago. Maybe a month ago or so at this point, that basically just bans abortion straightforward from conception. And there are some -- you know, obviously, likable the mother. So forth. But we really need to start thinking about trying to craft legislation now, at the state level. But to your point, I do fear that the blue states will only double down in their radicalism. Unfortunately within that will only lead to an ever greater divide, in our country, that we have today. But obviously, at the end of the day. We're going to save at the end of the day, millions and millions of unborn children. We are going to save human beings who can grow up to cure cancer, who can win Nobel prices.

I mean, this is just a tremendous win for the human species. I don't know how to say it other than that.

GLENN: I will tell you, I saw the stat, that I think it was last year or the year before. 20 percent of all pregnancies ended in abortion. 20 percent.

JOSH: Wow.

GLENN: That is -- that is a shocking number. And we do have our -- our work cut out for us. Because I -- I think that these states are going to double down. But I think, you know -- God doesn't waste anything. You know, there is no waste with God. Even the -- even the worst things that could possibly happen, turn out to be something good. You know what I mean? You're like, holy cow, how did that just happen.

And I think that evil is going to fully come unmasked. I'm telling you, Josh. I don't know how you feel about this. I think this could be the day of America's Kristallnacht. I can see these pro-life centers being burned to the ground today. They're calling for a night of rage around the country. I think evil is going to show itself. And that will scare the American people, hopefully.

JOSH: You know, I've been thinking about this a lot this week, actually. Because I've been bracing for a new kind of George Floyd summer of love, happening this summer. Coming to a city or suburb near you. Unfortunately, myself. Look, I live in Florida. I know, Glenn, you live in Texas. It is in moments like this, where I do think that where you live matters. And who your mayor is. Who your governor is, matters.

Because law and order and rioting and anarchy is not really a federal issue. It is to a limited extent. June 2020, Tom Cotton wrote this op-ed that was pretty controversial at the time.

I happen to agree with it. Where he said, quote, unquote, send in the troops. And there is some federal legislation from the reconstruction era that would justify that.

But most kind of quelling and quashing of anarchy does happen. Constitutionally speaking, at the state and local level. So at a moment like this, where I fear that you're probably not wrong. I take some solace. That Governor DeSantis is my governor. I think Texans should take some solace, that they are represented by -- by a Republican governor. The legislature there as well. So I -- I fear that you are right. I pray obviously, that no one -- it's hard.

I fear that it's something -- that something bad is happening. At the end of the day, of course. It does not mean that justices cannot do what they are supposed to do. So thank God they did that.

GLENN: So, Josh, have you looked into what the White House has been saying? The White House yesterday. In fact, do we have a clip of -- of this?

What the White House said yesterday, about the guns. And then they were turned to the -- the Scott us ruling, for Roe vs. Wade. Do we have that, please?

JOSH: Will the president accept this decision, even if he disagrees with it?

VOICE: I think it's going to come from the Supreme Court. So it's a decision we certainly are going to respond to. I'll leave it at that. Just like any other Supreme Court decision. Just like the one they did today on guns.

GLENN: So the White House won't say that they're going to accept it.

Which I don't think they will. They're talking now about taking doctors and moving them into places like Oklahoma or Texas, where abortions will be outlawed. And putting doctors on our military bases to perform abortions.

I mean, where does this go, when you have a government, that is in defiance of -- of one branch of the government?

JOSH: So there's a lot to unpack here. So we should start from first principles. The idea of judicial supremacy, and this is a peculiar thing, to say on a day like today, where such a pro-life victory has happened in Italy. But if we're going to be consistent here, the idea of judicial supremacy. The idea that the justices, have the sole and exclusive ability to interpret the Constitution for themselves. And no other Constitutional actor, in article one or article two, let alone the state. Has the ability to tentatively interpret it. That is erroneous. In fact, actually it was really Abraham Lincoln actually, who in the Dred Scott case, famously opposed judicial supremacy and flouted the Dred Scott ruling, at least as it pertains to everybody other than Dred Scott himself. I have actually argued, a former legal scholarship, in a law review article actually, that the Laconian view of how each branch of government should interpret the Constitution for itself, is correct.

Having said that. Having said that, there is a thing called prudence. And there is a thing called comedy. And in a moment like today, when it really does look like -- and I agree with you, that we are now bracing for riots through the streets. When the political rhetoric is at DEFCON one. When people are trying to assassinate Supreme Court justices. I think it would be -- at its bare minimum, a profoundly imprudent act. For the Biden administration, to try to undermine this ruling.

Now, what they might do, is they might try to kind of issue some kind of executive orders, or issue some regulations, that might try to kind of undermine it, at the edges here. But at the end of the day, the idea that this returns to the state. There's not really a whole lot they can do about that. Basically, at this point, throughout the country. Kentucky within West Virginia. Kansas. Whatever. If they want to go ahead and ban abortion, what can the Biden administration literally do about that? I mean, short of sending in the National Guard, to protect Planned Parenthood, if the state legislature of Kentucky goes ahead and bans it. There's not a whole lot they can do. And it's very difficult to envision a world, in which the Biden administration literally sends in troops to red states, to protect Planned Parenthood, if that state legislature goes ahead and bans it. So for practically speaking. This is a lot of tough talk and rhetoric. Obviously the campaign here in 2022. There's not really a whole lot that practically speaking, they can do to actually prevent red and purple states from enacting pro-life legislation.

GLENN: I'm glad to -- I'm glad to hear that. I know that they have been working on things. I mean, he has said, you know, there's executive orders, that I can employ. There are things that I can do. He's talked about a national public health emergency. Which I think is just -- is crazy. But I would hope, that the president would come out and say, we strongly disagree with this. And you're right. The court is not the end all. But the court did not end abortion. It just said, the people should decide. I think that's the best kind of court ruling, on any of it. The people should decide what this is. And send it back to the states. Josh, I thank you very much. Appreciate your time. Was there -- there was another ruling, that came out today. Was it important?

JOSH: Oh, no. In comparison to this. A total nothing burger. A 5-4 decision on Medicare reimbursement related. So nothing, honestly.

GLENN: Great. Thank you very much. Appreciate it, Josh. Josh Hammer, opinion editor for Newsweek. And the host of the Josh Hammer show.

GLENN: There are two things trending on twitter right now.

Number one is praise God.

Number two trend is Night of Rage.

Good verses evil.

Build up or tear down.

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

Photo by Yasin Ozturk/Anadolu Agency via Getty Images

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.

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.

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?

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.
