ACORN CEO: Tea Parties a 'Bowel Movement,' Future Will Be Worse Than Segregation

GLENN: Okay. So let me play the audio now of Bertha Lewis from ACORN. Here's two things that we said would happen, and we said this would happen, oh, I don't even know, beginning of last summer, that ACORN would fold and go undercover with a different name. That is exactly what has happened with ACORN. They are now dismantling ACORN piece by piece, city by city, and they are reopening them under different names.

The second thing we said would happen, I said and this one hasn't come true yet, but you are now beginning to see the beginning of it. I said, learn from the Monica Lewinsky story. Don't have the argument that he's a socialist, they are socialists. "Yes, they are." "No, they're not." "Yes, they are." "No, they're not." Does it matter, does it matter that they're socialists because I said they are going to come out and say, "Yes, of course we're socialists, but this system doesn't work and, look, we've already got all these social programs working, and it's not so bad." And many people will say, "You know what, yeah, I'm kind of with them." So is socialism bad? You must get people on the record right now. Get to Twitter. Get to Facebook. You tell people. I just ask this question: Is socialism the answer for America? Does Karl Marx hold the answer for America? Is any form of Marxism good for America? Get them on the record now. Because it's coming and here is the first sign from Bertha Lewis. Listen.

LEWIS: First of all, let me just say any group that says I'm young, I'm Democratic, and I'm a socialist is all right with me. (Applause).

GLENN: Stop. Any of these groups that say I'm young, I'm Democratic, and I'm socialist is all right with me. Got it? Young, Democratic and socialist is all right with me. And the crowd applauds.

Next.

LEWIS: You know, that's no large thing to do, to actually said I'm a socialist. As you guys know, right now we are living in a time which is going to dwarf the McCarthy era.

GLENN: Stop, stop. "As you guys know," she says, "It's no small thing to say that I'm a socialist." Why? News week said we're all socialists now. Boy, does it all come together? Do you see why they're exciting, why they have fought and tried to discredit? Because they know that Americans, at this point at least, do not look fondly on socialists. That's why you've got to fight what socialism is and Marxism. You've got to fight that battle because they are know they are about to be exposed. It's only a matter of time. So she says, I know it's not easy to say those things because especially at this time, we are at a time that will dwarf the McCarthy era. We're at a time, according to Bertha Lewis, that will dwarf the McCarthy era. All right?

LEWIS: It is going to dwarf the internment during World War II.

GLENN: Stop. It will dwarf the internment of World War II. Let's just get our arms around that.

PAT: Who is she afraid of? Who are these who is this entity that's going to come and take these people away? Nobody's in power. Nobody has the power to do that except the government. And the government are the ones who were doing all the socialist policies.

GLENN: Now, now, wait a minute. Now, now, wait a minute here. If you truly understand progressivism, it is exactly what I said you on the left better be careful of. I am afraid of a swing too far with a progressive right or a progressive left. Let's dismantle progressivism. Let's dismantle this giant government. Let's go back to the Constitution because the Constitution would bar people from being rounded up like in the internment camps by the beloved FDR, a Democrat progressive. Hmmm. Gosh, that kind of hurts, doesn't it? It's going to dwarf the atrocities done to the Japanese and German Americans in World War II, it's going to dwarf the atrocities of the internment that was done by the progressive Democratic FDR. Progressivism allows one to build a camp and intern people.

Now, I don't know if Bertha Lewis is talking about FEMA camps, but she should watch my show because I've debunked the FEMA camps. But while debunking them, I said the structure does exist if you get a government that declares an emergency and says we need to round people up. They're not planning it. They're not doing it. But the structure does exist because we have a progressive government. So she sounds to me like it's going to dwarf the internment of World War II. So she must have some information. Can a member of the press please ask Bertha Lewis at ACORN today if she's a conspiracy theorist? Could somebody in the mainstream media ask Bertha Lewis to explain these comments? Is she talking about FEMA camps? I'm just, I'm not sure. I'm not sure what she's referring to. I'm not sure also if she's referring, is she gosh, she sounds like a conspiracy theorist and a fear monger. Well, so far at least she's not preaching hate. That's good that she's not saying, you know, anything hateful about anybody.

LEWIS: We are currently in a period that is going to dwarf the era of Jim Crow and segregation.

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait, wait. Did she just say that we're currently in a period that is going to dwarf Jim Crow and segregation. Wow. That's quite a where is that coming from? So are you saying that Barack Obama is going to put policies into place that will be like Jim Crow? Because I man, I find that hard to believe. Who would be because it wouldn't be me because I don't have any power. Wouldn't be the tea parties because we don't have any power. See, they don't even listen to us. This is how much power the tea parties have. We wanted to stop healthcare and they did it anyway. We wanted to stop the stimulus package and they did it anyway. We wanted to stop TARP and they did it anyway. So I don't know how we can build these internment camps, round people up, because I think the FBI would probably look for us if we started putting them in our basement, if we started putting up razor wire in our neighborhood. But then did she also say segregation? Because you know what's really weird? You know that we didn't have a segregated army? You know who segregated our army, resegregated? It's so the progressive Woodrow Wilson was the one that did that, the progressive, the progressive Woodrow Wilson. That's so you got the internment camps from FDR and segregation from Woodrow Wilson. I got it. Progressives.

(OUT 9:30)

GLENN: 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK. So let me just finish up with Bertha Lewis because there's something about you, the tea partier, that Bertha Lewis wants you to know. First of all, she's okay with anyone saying you are a socialist and she knows it's hard, and you are probably going to be I'm using her words probably going to be rounded up in an internment camp. Wow! What a FEMA conspiracy theorist.

PAT: And who is going to round them up? The Boy Scouts?

GLENN: Not the Boy Scouts.

PAT: Brownies?

GLENN: Don't know, don't know. Maybe tea partiers in the FEMA camps that the tea partiers have. I don't know. I've debunked the FEMA camps, but she is obviously thinking that there is some sort of internment camp that is being built right now.

PAT: Is there a tea party law enforcement

GLENN: I don't know.

PAT: group?

GLENN: I don't know. I don't want to speculate.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: But somebody in the media should ask her this because that's quite a statement from the head of ACORN. The head of ACORN. That's quite that's quite a statement.

PAT: Bold.

GLENN: All right. So anyway, so this is what she said. But she also wants you to know that, you know, people who have differing opinions, they matter. They matter. Remember, a good portion of the country, you know, sides with the tea parties. A good portion of the tea party movement is paying taxes. Those taxes are going to ACORN. So how does she feel? A woman who's getting tax dollars from the American people, many of whom are tea party members? How does she feel about the tea party? Here she is.

LEWIS: And they are coming after you and they are going to be brutal and impressive. They have already shown it to you. Get out into the street. You really have got to circle the wagons. This is not rhetoric or hyperbole.

GLENN: Stop. So they are coming after you. They are coming after you. They are vicious and they've already shown you that they're vicious. I know, man. When grandma brings out the lawn chair and she sits there.

PAT: Oh, man.

GLENN: It is vicious. It is vicious. So that's who they are. They're so vicious. They are coming after you. Wow, this just sounds like a paranoid, crazy, insane, should be locked in an asylum possible evaluated.

PAT: Treated. She definitely needs treatment.

GLENN: Definitely needs treatment. FEMA camp, fear mongering.

PAT: Hateful rhetoric?

GLENN: Dangerous.

PAT: Isn't it dangerous?

GLENN: Hateful rhetoric. My gosh.

PAT: Wow, I hate to see it.

GLENN: I know the media's going to be all over this. So they are coming after you and they're vicious. So you better organize. Organize? For what? Well, at least she, at least she's not going to name call.

LEWIS: This is real. This rise of this tea party so called movement, bowel movement in my opinion.

GLENN: So hang on just a second. Boy, that was okay, she did name call. She called tea party members a bowel movement. But at least she's classy.

PAT: (Laughing).

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.
