Glenn Beck: Chris Wallace destroys Howard Dean

GLENN: Let's play that Howard Dean audio one more time.

VOICE: Go ahead, sir.

DEAN: Let's just be blunt about this. I don't think Newt Gingrich is a racist and you are certainly not a racist but I think Fox News did something that was absolutely racist. They took a they had an obligation to find out what was really in the clip. They have been pushing a theme of black racism with this phony Black Panther crap and this business and Sotomayor and all this other stuff. I think you've got to be very I think, look, the tea party called out their racist fringe and I think the Republican Party's got to stop appealing to its racist fringe, and Fox News is what did that. You put that on

VOICE: Wait, wait, wait.

DEAN: Yes, I think the Obama people

VOICE: Governor, I know facts I know facts are inconvenient things but let's try to deal with the facts. The fact is that the Obama administration fired or forced Shirley Sherrod to quit before her name had ever been mentioned on Fox News Channel. Did you know that, sir?

PAT: I get a kick out of these people who say, know what you're talking about.

GLENN: Know the facts. Read the timeline.

PAT: Know about the story. Why would you know? That might take a couple of days to understand.

GLENN: You read the story, you find out the facts, it will hurt your argument.

DEAN: What I do know is that video came out

VOICE: Did you know that, that her name did you know that her that she was fired before her name was ever mentioned on the Fox News Channel?

DEAN: What about the video?

PAT: Stop.

GLENN: What about the video? I love this. Yes, Fox News ran the video without identifying some unknown black woman is speaking some place now.

PAT: (Laughing). Let's go to it immediately!

GLENN: What a ridiculous statement that is. What about the video? Yes, yes.

PAT: The video.

GLENN: Here she is; we think she may be the black avenger, we're not sure. What is that?

STU: (Laughing). Great point.

GLENN: What a ridiculous statement that is.

DEAN: What about the incomplete video from a rightwing

VOICE: The video had never played on the Fox News Channel before the White House fired her. It was on Andrew Breitbart, BigGovernment.Com. We're not responsible for them. I agree with you, it was out of context but it wasn't on Fox News. So maybe you shouldn't be using racist phrase, either.

DEAN: And it was about to go and it was about to go on Glenn Beck, which is what the administration was afraid of.

PAT: Wow.

DEAN: Look, I think that he's right. I don't think she should have been fired summarily and I think we ought to stop being afraid of Glenn Beck and the racist fringe of the Republican Party. But Fox News was not blameless during this.

GLENN: Stop. She was fired before we had anything to do with it! We didn't say anything! I don't understand that.

STU: And it wasn't

GLENN: NAACP, it's my understanding the NAACP had the full videotape.

STU: It was their event, wasn't it?

GLENN: Yes.

STU: They had it.

GLENN: How did they take it out of context? What is that? It's weird. I smell like a hot setup coming out of the oven.

PAT: I's Howard Dean laying in a milky substance.

GLENN: Is that what it is?

PAT: With electrodes attached to his head. And he knew.

GLENN: He knew.

PAT: He knew that video was coming up on your show. He knew.

STU: Right, he knew it.

GLENN: Well, he didn't know that I took her side and said she should not be fired, isn't it?

STU: Well, when you do know the plan, they have another attack and this is David Obey from Wisconsin. Quote: Well, there are a lot of people who screwed up, but the only folks who were eager to peddle that story was Fox News.

GLENN: Oh.

STU: And they showed themselves to be piggish character assassins that you'd come to expect.

GLENN: Piggish character assassins?

STU: They are not the only ones who screwed up but they are the ones who did it with the most pleasure. That's not an argument.

GLENN: Yes, it is. Yes, it is. It is the argument that they always make: Robert Byrd's not racist because we know his heart.

STU: We know his intent.

GLENN: We know your heart, even though you've never said anything like that. You've never had a hood on, you don't want to be around people with hoods, you speak out against people with hoods. You, however, we can read your heart and you are a racist. That's the way it works.

STU: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: That's the way it works, and it has since the beginning of time. And the good news is it's not working anymore. It's not working anymore. It will work for the zombies, but go ahead. Go ahead. You have all your zombies. Go ahead. The thinking people will stand over here.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
