PRESIDENT OBAMA: Right now all around this country.
PRESIDENT OBAMA: There are groups with harmless sounding names like Americans For Prosperity who are running millions of dollars of ads against Democratic candidates, all across the country. And they don't have to say who exactly the Americans For Prosperity are.
PRESIDENT OBAMA: You don't know if it's a foreign controlled.
PRESIDENT OBAMA: You don't know if it's a big oil company.
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Or a big bank.
PAT: I mean, they could be anybody. How does this guy, how does he think he could get away with this when he's got so many there are so many leftist organizations from, you know
GLENN: Because he has the press. When you have organizations like the Tides Foundation and Media Matters and moveon.org and the Apollo Alliance and I mean
GLENN: We can name a hundred of them. SEIU, AFL CIO, you've got these organizations that are pumping it out, Media Matters, moveon.org, pumping it out to the press, then pumping it out to active college students. There's the key, active college students are using all of the new media.
STU: As specifically underscored in that Weather Underground manifesto we talked about. That's exactly what they talked about.
GLENN: Right. Then you have, then you have the unions which are pumping it through the body of, what is that, 10% of the American population are union members? I mean, I can't even go buy a firehouse now. Because the unions have been turned against me on, you know, the firemen's unions
STU: The firemen's unions have been turned against you?
Glenn Beck is seen here on the Insider Extreme broadcast, an exclusive feature available only to Glenn Beck Insider Extreme members. Learn more...
GLENN: Oh, yeah, big time. Big time.
STU: Because I mean, every union member that I speak with isn't influenced by their leadership.
GLENN: I hope that's true.
STU: And I think that regular people
GLENN: I don't have a problem with the regular people. I don't have a problem with the union members. I have a problem with the union leaders, the nation, too.
STU: It's a problem with the leaders. But again this is one of many groups that have one specific goal with you right now which is fill the space. There's a decent amount of people still in America that haven't made up their mind on you, you know, for or against.
GLENN: I find that hard to believe.
STU: It is hard to believe, but it's true and, you know, a lot of people don't pay attention and they have to get this pumped out all the time. There's a race of the undecideds, and they sit there and they peck away all the time in a quantity sort of way, not quality. They don't go for quality attacks. It's just quantity.
GLENN: Oh, my gosh. Have you noticed? For instance, like Media Matters, that's not even reflected I mean, it's always been sketchy. But now it's almost like, Glenn Beck is a Martian.
STU: Yeah, they don't even make an effort anymore.
GLENN: And there will be like four of them that come out.
STU: They have a quota every day to come out with 20 stories about you. I mean, it doesn't matter. They just pick up a sentence and say "Baselessly" next to it. Glenn Beck baselessly says something that we don't need to describe because you you're not going to read the context anyway. That's essentially every headline from these people at this point, and that's their goal is to fill, you know, the space around you with as much negativity as possible so it hopefully influences people who don't matter.
GLENN: You get 10% of the undecideds in the country who just don't pay attention, they don't know who Media Matters is, they don't know that it's all George Soros, they don't know all of this stuff. And so they say, oh, yeah, he's a racist.
STU: Perfect example. The group that started running negative ads about your religion, remember a couple of weeks ago, we were on the road, they were talking about how you equal Hitler, you say Jesus equals Hitler and all this other stuff.
GLENN: Do you have it, Pat? This is Soros, this is Soros money.
STU: Well, but the name of the group is fantastic. It's exactly what Obama's talking about. Faith in Public Life. Well, that sounds fantastic. Everybody loves faith.
GLENN: And you don't know where the money's coming from.
STU: Yeah, where's that money coming from, exactly.
PAT: Wasn't it George Soros money? Wasn't he running the ads?
GLENN: Well, it was George Soros for the parent company, I think, or the parent group. See, this is what they do.
PAT: Launder money.
GLENN: They launder everything. They launder people and money. And they will make one group and then if you figure out that that group's bad, that group just spins off into another group and another group and another group. This is why it sounds like a conspiracy theory when you talk about like the Tides Foundation because it's intentionally set up so complex. Remember when we first found Tides and I had a guy who was an organizational expert --what he does is he goes into companies like IBM and he says, how does the power flow. And, they will say, well, it goes from me to Bob to Ben, and then he studies it. And he's like, no, that's not the power flow. Here's why your company's all screwed up because your power is you don't know what's even going on in your own company. We had him study Tides for about two months and he kept coming back and I mean, the blood was drained out of his face. And he was like, look, I grew up in the Sixties, you know. He said, I'm part of this with this SDS stuff. He said, I remember all these guys. He said, I always thought they were a joke. He said, my gosh, look at this. He said, and it is so complex that no one will ever be able to explain it. It's intentional. It's intentional.
So I guess what you would have to do if you are a listener and a fan is you need to fill
PAT: With positivity. With the truth really.
PAT: I mean, just fill it with the truth.
GLENN: See, we're in a race against time. We really are. And it's not enough just to know it and tell your friends, because of the new media that is out. You've got to if you're youth, you've got to make the best use of the new media. You've got to get onto Facebook and Twitter and you've got to push out the truth on the other side. Forget about them. Don't make it about them. Make it about the truth about what is really going on. There's no need to tear them down.
STU: Yeah, and I know you are speaking about the issues here but if I could, I think it's also specifically about you, about Glenn Beck. Because the bottom line is people are spreading lies about you all the time and it's up to, our listeners and the people who know your character and have listened to you for a hundred million hours over the past ten years that they can come out there and say the truth about you, that you are speaking the truth, that these things are taken out of context. I think that's important as well.
GLENN: One of the things I like the most is I've seen on the Internet people just, you know, they get into bash sessions. And don't bash. Don't bash. If they are going to get into a bash session, just walk away from it. There's no good except contention. There's no good that comes out of contention. So get out just get away from it. The best thing I like when people are doing is just saying specifically, give me specifics. Give me specifics. Because they never can. Because that 10 to 30% is just being filled up with people who are just like, he's a racist, he's a bigot, he hates homosexuals, he hates he hates nonhomosexuals. He hates the sun.
STU: The sun? Who's anti sun?
PAT: I haven't seen that ad.
GLENN: You will. Right now -- let me say this: I hate the sun. Now media, Media Matters will come out with a deal, "Glenn Beck baselessly said he hates the sun."
PAT: Why does Glenn Beck hate the sun ?
GLENN: And you will hear people now say, "The guy hates the sun! He's crazy!"
