Glenn Beck: Sherrod mess gets messier

GLENN: This Sherrod story is, as I pointed out last night on TV, I love this story because the way that the way the English say this is a charade, I won't play this charade anymore, they pronounce it Sherrod and it is becoming a Sherrod, is it not?

This is if this wasn't a setup, I have to tell you, it is, it is certainly Rahm Emanuel's don't let a good crisis go to waste. This is truly, truly becoming fascinating to see how this whole thing is coming together. We're looking at the timeline. Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity now are being blamed, they were dooped by FOX News. They were dooped by that evil FOX News. Those shows hadn't aired. Let me say it again. They hadn't aired when the President fired Sherrod.

Now, so, how is he did the President have, like, time tunnel? Did he, like, beam into the future and he's, like, I just got back from the future. Is that what happened? Did he get into a DeLorean, go to the future, see how what they were going to say, then come back, 88.6 miles an hour, and then come out and say, I've got to fire her? But, Doc, but, Doc, I don't think we should fire her!

How exactly did was he dooped and influenced by FOX News when those shows hadn't aired? I'm trying to figure that one out and I can't do it. Now she is she's practically set up a tent at CNN. Now, here is a whom who sued the Federal Government and won $13 million and then found herself working for the Federal Government. Now she's got, I believe, the largest lawsuit known to mankind, not against not against me or FOX or anybody. She's got the biggest lawsuit known to mankind against the Federal Government, calling Cloward and Piven, calling Cloward and Piven, come in, Cloward and Piven.

PAT: Can you say President Sherrod?

GLENN: Uh huh, sure.

PAT: I think you could. She threw herself right into the presidency. Own the country, run the country. She's all set. She's all set.

GLENN: No, she's not. What's weird is Robert Gates yesterday said or Gibbs, yeah. Robert Gibbs said yesterday that he had called and they had apologized.

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: Right?

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: Do you have the audio?

PAT: Yeah.

GIBBS: I think this is one I think this is a fair way to put it. Members of this administration, members of the media, members of different political factions on both sides of this have all made determinations and judgments without a full set of facts. I think that is, that is wholly and completely accurate. I think, without a doubt, Ms. Sherrod is owed an apology. I would do so, certainly, on behalf of this administration. I think if we learn if we look back and decide what we want to learn out of this, I think it is, as I said, everybody involved

GLENN: Edit.

GIBBS: made determinations without knowing all the facts.

PAT: Everybody involved acted without knowing all of the facts.

GLENN: My gosh. It's a it's really quite amazing, isn't it?

PAT: I'm thinking not everyone acted without knowing the facts. For instance, we didn't we didn't mention it on Monday on radio nor did you mention it on Monday night on television.

GLENN: No, yeah. Not Monday.

PAT: Not Monday night. Yeah, Tuesday.

GLENN: Tuesday.

PAT: And when you did, you took her side.

GLENN: On Tuesday morning I still was unaware of the story, the complete story, hadn't seen the video. I think we played the audio here and to me it was just another example of what we're seeing over and over again.

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: But I don't even know if the NAACP had come out had they come out with a statement condemning her yet?

PAT: I think toward the end of the show on Tuesday, yeah, they had and then there's starting to be some question, very quickly after that about

GLENN: I remember

PAT: about this story being 24 years ago.

GLENN: I remember she came out about 11:30 on Tuesday, she came out and said she was asked to resign because she was going to be on Glenn Beck and we talked about that and so we haven't even we hadn't even talked about it on TV. We hadn't even talked about it. And by the time, then, noon came around and I remember I came back in there at 12:15 because I was in the news room and I came in and I said, Okay, I'm looking at the story now. There's something wrong here. There's something really, really wrong here, but do you know what? If anybody wants to say, well, how come you know, how come Sean Hannity was doing this at night, at 9:00 o'clock at fight? He took it out of context. Why would you? Why would you do any work on this story? As a journalist, why would you do any work on this? I mean, if we're doing the job journalists are doing now, why do any work? The President had already decided that she was a racist. He fired her. The administration fired her. This administration doesn't fire anybody for being a communist or a racist. They don't do any of that stuff. So, the President if the President decides that an African American come is a racist, that's news in and of itself. So, how can anyone blame anyone for saying, well, they were sloppy. Look what they did. They tore her apart? The President, by the time those shows aired, the President had already deemed her a racist. I mean, oh, okay. So, you're having a problem that Sean Hannity dog piled on the pile that the President put out and the NAACP. Oh, okay. I can't figure that one out. Well, you can't just follow the President. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm going blind and I think it's because of statements like that. I think it is. I think I've been praying, Lord, I can't look at it anymore. I think he's answering a prayer because I can't take it.

I mean, you've got to be kidding me. This is where you're going? You can't just follow the President. You've got to look at it yourself. What?

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
