Glenn Beck: Dumb people on television




Glenn Beck is seen here on the Insider Extreme broadcast, an exclusive feature available only to Glenn Beck Insider Extreme members. More...

GLENN: So then we have Velshi, Ali Velshi from CNN and he gives this point on CNN: "Timothy McVeigh was raised a Catholic. Suppose our government leaders in New York, our state leaders step in. I mean, should we, should we go into the Catholics as well? Because Timothy McVeigh was a Catholic. Do we entertain petitions of moving Catholic churches away from the Oklahoma City bombing site? I'm sure you are thinking that sounds ridiculous." Yes, that's he's a mind reader. Yes, that's exactly what I was thinking. "But ask yourself, is it ridiculous because Catholicism is familiar to you?" Let me think. No. "Or is it your argument is that what he did was different?" No. He did it exactly the same. He did exactly the same thing. Timothy McVeigh killed innocent people. Except there's more to the story. "Or is your argument that Timothy McVeigh didn't kill in the name of Allah?" No, Timothy McVeigh killed in the name of insanity. He killed in the name of oppressive government.

PAT: Had nothing to do with religion whatsoever, nothing.

GLENN: Zero.

PAT: Nothing.

GLENN: Would I have a militia that does not stand up against Timothy McVeigh and say that Timothy McVeigh is a bad guy and what he did was a horror show and won't dismiss taking money for from, you know, from the Unabomber? Would I have them build 500 feet away from Oklahoma City, would I allow them to build a giant structure? No. No, that would be insane. That would be insane. Unfortunately for Velshi, he should watch his own network because on his very own network, the morning after McVeigh's execution, was this. Quote: Timothy McVeigh was baptized in the Catholic church as a boy but had stopped practicing and recently described himself as an agnostic." So it had nothing to do with the church. "Moreover as the terrorist himself admitted, he bombed Oklahoma City federal building as, quote, a retaliatory strike, a counterattack for the cumulative raids that federal agents had participated over in the preceding years including but not limited to Waco. He did not do it in the name of the Catholic church. He did not do it in the name of a Christian god. In fact, that was Al Qaeda that did things like that. They issued a fatwa in 1998 declaring that killing Americans and their allies is the individual duty for every Muslim and they can do it in every country in which it is possible to do it in accordance to the words of almighty God." That's the fatwa. That's not Timothy McVeigh. And there's one more comment. The Rick Sanchez who I honestly don't know how the man ties his own shoes. I'm sure he has slip ones. Rick Sanchez, quite possibly the dumbest man on television, and that's saying something because there's some dumb people in television. But Rick Sanchez I think has to be the dumbest man in television. A guy who doesn't understand that a volcano can happen in a cold place like Iceland.

SANCHEZ: I was just asking Chad, how can you get a volcano in Iceland? Isn't it too when you think of a volcano, you think of, like, Hawaii and long words like that. You don't think of Iceland. You think it's too cold to have a volcano there.

GLENN: Long words like Hawaii.

SANCHEZ: It's too cold to have a volcano there.

GLENN: Too cold to have a volcano there. And besides, when you think of volcanoes, you think of long words like Hawaii.

STU: Which are shorter than Iceland.

GLENN: What a dope. This guy's the dumbest man ever on television.

PAT: I don't know how you can say that.

GLENN: You don't know?

PAT: I don't. I don't know how you

GLENN: That's the only example I have.

PAT: Well, there might be others, but

VOICE: 3:00. Thanks so much, Wolf, appreciate it. Look forward to seeing you. Good job on the Situation Room today, as I'm sure you will do.

Up next, ad lib, a tease, that's what it says right here.

GLENN: What a dope.

PAT: But I mean, you couldn't find anything else.

GLENN: No.

VOICE: Down here we had this big drop. This is about a 9 meter drop.

VOICE: Nine meter drop?

VOICE: Nine meters.

VOICE: What does that mean?

VOICE: Well, it means that the ocean waves are doing something, that we're seeing some changes. It's been going down and

VOICE: By the way, nine meters in English is?

PAT: Still nine meters, Rick, it's still nine meters.

GLENN: Still nine meters. And meters is English.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: What a dope.

PAT: I love it.

GLENN: Anyway, so here's his here's his latest. "If you start going into who's giving money, you gotta go to Rome and start asking where's the money going into Rome." What? And you have to go to the Mormons and ask, what are they doing with their money?" No, I don't know if you get this, Rick. The Catholic church and no renegade part of the Catholic church is flying planes into building.

PAT: Yeah, but remember that group, that band of marauding Mormons? Remember them?

GLENN: They were really

PAT: Remember them?

GLENN: Holy cow, yeah.

PAT: Remember they continued to scream that they would do it again, too?

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Remember that?

GLENN: And they were like, yi, yi, yi, yi, yi, no coffee! Oh, that was great!

PAT: Threaten Starbucks? Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: Well, they threatened never to walk into a Starbucks because there was really nothing well, the hot cocoa is pretty good. So this Mormon goes in there. But anyway, that's a whole different story. You are onto something, Rick. You are onto something. And when I think of Catholics and Mormons, I normally think of really... bigger words like decent.

PAT: Or Jew.

GLENN: (Laughing). Long words like that.

STU: (Laughing).

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
