Glenn Beck: Why I Didn't Rush to Condemn Shirley Sherrod




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

How many times have you read something like this on The Huffington Post or George Soros' Media Matters and Think Progress and the Center of American Progress:

"Glenn Beck and 'Fixed News' launch another smear campaign!"

"Glenn Beck takes Fred Noogleburger out of context!"

"Glenn Beck baselessly distorts. Glenn Beck jumps to conclusions!"

If these blogs and media outlets paid as much attention to the administration and government as they have been in trying to attack me and "Faux News," the republic would probably be much safer.

But after seeing news like we did from The Daily Caller and the JournoList, it's easy to see why no one in the media bothers asking the administration any questions.

Instead, these outlets say I'm the one jumping to conclusions and smearing and lying. There's even an attack on me going around the Internet that claims "Glenn Beck says 'you can catch diseases from blacks.'"

Yes, I said it — guilty as charged. You got me. Play the tape. I deserve to be shamed:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

BECK: Woodrow Wilson was the president who brought Jim Crow to Washington. He not only segregated the Army, but Woodrow Wilson is the guy who segregated bathrooms, cafeterias, work areas. He justified this and he said, you know, the white government workers, we got to segregate because, you know, you can catch diseases from blacks. That's Woodrow Wilson.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

And I would have gotten away with it to if it weren't for those pesky bloggers! Those were Woodrow Wilson's words. I was talking about him and quoting him.

I happen to believe that context matters.

Robert Gibbs said today that we can all learn a lesson:

WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY ROBERT GIBBS: I think the lesson — one of the great lessons you take away from this is — is to ask all the questions first and to come to that full understanding.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

We have a pattern here on this show of putting things in context. Am I perfect? Nope, but we work our butts off every day to make sure that we've checked into the full context of whatever it is we are showing.

Do you know how many clips of Van Jones we could have played if we didn't care about context? But we didn't have the full speech, so we couldn't say for sure if what the short clip really meant. So we buried it.

How many people wanted to convict and lock up the Times Square Bomber? I wanted to arrange his meeting with Allah as quickly as possible, just like others did, but I seemed like the only mature adult in the room standing in the corner raising my hand, going umm, remember the Miranda rights thing?

Shirley Sherrod, is the next example. We didn't rush to condemn her. This is another seemingly "redistribution of wealth" woman — who I would bet that I vehemently disagree with on probably everything. But she asked for the rest of the tape to be heard, the farmers in the story backed her up. It was a turning point story. We defended her and said her side of the story demanded to be heard — because context matters.

That's how we do things. But not how the administration does them. Instead of taking her at her word and waiting for the rest of the video, she was chewed up and spit out, all because:

SHIRLEY SHERROD, FORMER USDA OFFICIAL: They want you to pull over to the side of the road and do it because you're going to be on Glenn Beck tonight.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Wow. Really? The most powerful group of people on the planet are afraid of me?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

JOE SCARBOROUGH, MSNBC: Give me a break. Seriously? Is that their big — if that's their biggest concern, they're screwed. They are screwed.

(CROSSTALK)

The guy with the chalkboard? I mean, seriously they’re afraid of the guy with the chalkboard? Who cries?

If they're scared of him, can we please get somebody else to help us out with Iran, 'cause we're screwed.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

By the way, I'm not just one man with a chalkboard. I'm one man with four chalkboards.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.

Faced with an oppressive government that literally burned people at the stake for printing Bibles, America's original freedom fighters risked it all for the same rights our government is starting to trample now. That's not the Pilgrim story our woke schools and corporate media will tell you. It's the truth, and it sounds a lot more like today's heroes in Afghanistan than the 1619 Project's twisted portrait of America.

This Thanksgiving season, Glenn Beck and WallBuilders president Tim Barton tell the full story of who the Pilgrims really were and what we must learn from them, complete with a sneak peek at the largest privately owned collection of Pilgrim artifacts.

Saule Omarova, President Joe Biden's nominee for comptroller of the currency, admitted she wants to fight climate change by bankrupting coal, oil, and gas companies. Alarmingly, Biden's U.S. special climate envoy, John Kerry, seemed to agree with Omarova when he said "by 2030 in the United States, we won't have coal" at the COP26 conference in Glasgow, Scotland, earlier this month. But that could end in massive electrical blackouts and brownouts across the nation, BlazeTV host Glenn Beck warned.

Carol Roth, author of "The War On Small Business," joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain what experts say you can do now to prepare your family for potential coming power outages.

"It's interesting. Usually when I go out and talk to experts in areas that are not 100% core to my area of expertise and I say, 'I would like to give you credit.' Usually I get, 'OK, here's how you credit me.' But everyone is like, 'No, no. Let me tell you what happened, just don't use my name.' And this is across the country," Roth said. "This isn't just a California issue, which obviously [California] is leading the nation. But even experts out of Texas, people who are monitoring the electric grid are incredibly concerned about brownouts or blackouts now, already. So forget about 2030."

"You want to have a backup source of power," she continued. "Either a propane, diesel, or combo generator is something that you're going to want to have. Because in a state, for example like Texas, I'm told that once the state loses power, it will take a minimum of two weeks to restore plants back to operations and customers able to use grid power again. So, this isn't something that we've got nine years or whatever to be thinking about. We should be planning and preparing now."
