Glenn Beck: Hatchet job by ABC's GMA

Learn more about the Restoring Honor Rally, 8/28 in Washington DC...

GLENN: If you can play a little bit of ABC this morning, I was I was actually doing stage blocking today for the event to kind of show everybody, you know, and work with the directors on exactly how, you know, I wanted things to go. And I'm there early, early this morning and then I see a camera and all the lights and everything out in the mall and they were taking pictures, and I'm like, huh, I wonder who that is, must be a local. I didn't know that it was ABC Good Morning America. And it was Claire Shipman. And Claire Shipman

PAT: She's good.

GLENN: You guys should be ashamed of yourself. You should be ashamed of yourself.

PAT: It's nothing but a leftwing hatchet job.

GLENN: I mean, it's amazing.

STU: There are some good examples there if you want to really understand in a nutshell how these people do these reports.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: It's very specific. This is how they do it. A great example here.

GLENN: Let's go.

PAT: Go through it.

GLENN: This is case study of hatchet jobs. Here it is.

VOICE: There's a lot of emotions swirling over this issue. Remember it wasn't so long ago that Glenn Beck called President Obama a racist. So his choice of timing to hold his rally here tomorrow, a surprise to say the least.

PAT: For whom? First of all, it was almost a year ago.

STU: It was more than a year ago.

GLENN: More than a year ago.

PAT: More than a year ago. So it was quite a while ago, Hon, and it's been covered over and over.

GLENN: Huh?

PAT: A Hon or a Puddin'.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: It's been over a year, Puddin'. Seriously.

STU: Seriously.

PAT: Get over it.

GLENN: No, wait. We've already talked about it. We've addressed it.

PAT: We've addressed it a million times. Thousands of reasons.

GLENN: A million times.

STU: Thousands of hours of broadcast since that comment.

PAT: We've gone over the reasons for saying it then, you've changed your position a little bit now because you said

GLENN: Well, no, no.

PAT: You've learned more about him.

GLENN: I've learned more about him.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: And it's not it's just not out of the hand race. That's not what he does. He sees America as an oppressor. It is his liberation theology that leads him to make the decision.

PAT: Where do you get that he's a liberation theologist?

GLENN: Definitely not from the Christian Science Monitor but from his own churches.

PAT: Like what? What evidence do you have that he's ever even heard liberation theology?

GLENN: The words that he said, the fact that he said in several speeches, the fact that he sat there for 20 years, that all of the preachers around him

PAT: His liberation theology church.

GLENN: Yeah. All the preachers that are around him and that have advised him are liberation theology guys. But other than that

PAT: Pfleger, Jeremiah Wright, we suspect Jim Wallis has some of that going on.

GLENN: Well, he's a Marxist.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: He's a Marxist. And by the way, Marxism and God don't usually go together. In fact, ever.

PAT: No.

GLENN: Anyway

PAT: So that's just the beginning.

GLENN: Okay.

PAT: But it's a surprise, to say the least.

KING: I have a dream.

VOICE: Immortal words of unity. But the 47th anniversary of Dr. King's speech is producing just the opposite.

GLENN: Blacks don't own this is amazing Martin Luther King.

VOICE: Glenn Beck is no Martin Luther King.

GLENN: Stop, stop. This is amazing.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Because there is no comma in that sentence.

STU: No.

GLENN: There's no period there. There's no comma. The sentence is do you have it?

STU: I have it right here.

GLENN: Okay.

STU: Remember this is what ABC's audience thinks you said now. They say you said blacks don't own Martin Luther King, period, and this is a controversial comment. Here's the full context: Whites don't own Abraham Lincoln. Blacks don't own Martin Luther King. Those are American icons, American ideas. And we should just talk about character and that's what this event is about. It's about honoring character.

PAT: That's are the same people

GLENN: That is unbelievable.

PAT: Unreal.

GLENN: I mean, that is you know what? I'm going to get a lot of heat for this, but stand in line. That's what Goebbels did. That's what Goebbels did. The truth didn't matter.

STU: No. Well

GLENN: Now, the only thing they haven't done and Soros' people have done, the only thing they haven't done is put signs calling me a racist and tight edit them in there so it's almost subliminal which Soros' people and I think it was moveon or Media Matters did. They are doing that. You know, and the only thing left is to just, quick, edit vermin, rats, every time you talk about me.

STU: There's no other explanation for this other than propaganda. I mean, that

GLENN: That is unbelievable propaganda.

PAT: These are the same people who had such a conniption fit, and they should, over Shirley Sherrod being Shirley Sherroded. These are the same people who are so indignant and angry over the fact that Shirley Sherrod was taken out of context which we did not do to her, by the way. We supported her from the beginning. And these are the same people doing it to you now. What hypocrites!

STU: What decision what's the decision making process?

PAT: Unbelievable.

STU: When you are sitting in an edit room and you see that the previous sentence is whites don't own Abraham Lincoln, the next one is blacks don't own Martin Luther King, those are American icons, that is a unifying statement. You are saying that these people were not about color. They're just great people.

GLENN: No, no, no, no.

PAT: And they use it for the opposite.

GLENN: No, no, you have to.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Because the premise of the story is

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: "I have a dream."

STU: And you're ruining it.

GLENN: Unifying words. But what's happening this weekend is anything but.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Excuse me? Only if you edit my sentence.

STU: Yeah. What's the decision? Who's making a call like that? Who's sitting in the edit room and saying

GLENN: Progressives.

STU: Yeah, exactly. Only people that want to smear you. There's no way you would leave the rest of that comment out if you actually cared about the truth. It is blatant propaganda. Horrible job by ABC and Claire Shipman.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
