GLENN: Look, you know what's amazing, what's amazing to me is and this is the point, America. The media is going to do what the media does, and I am I got to this place over the holiday when I was when I was on vacation last week, when I was headed out to the boat and somebody said, umm, Glenn, the ambassador to Pakistan would like you to come out against the burning of the Koran.
PAT: Had that same problem over the weekend, didn't you, Stu, with the ambassador of Botswana.
STU: I believe he's the am bass tore to Belize was yeah, all of them.
GLENN: I just turned around and I said, the what? Huh?
STU: That was bizarre.
PAT: That is weird.
GLENN: It is totally bizarre, totally bizarre.
PAT: Have you ever seen, I can't remember I was thinking of that over the weekend. I don't think I've ever seen an ambassador from another nation call on a television or radio host to denounce anything.
GLENN: Never, never.
PAT: We really need Glenn Beck to
GLENN: You know what that says. You know what that says. A couple of things. One, that's how much trouble America is in on leadership, okay?
GLENN: That's the real message you should get here. But the other is, the rest of the world is looking at America, and they are seeing lack of leadership. So who has the ear of the American people? Who has any influence with the American people? Well, the Pakistanis apparently believe I do.
Here's the best news. When I heard that about the Pakistani thing, first of all, I did, I wrote
STU: Yeah, he should subscribe to the e mail newsletter because you
GLENN: Yeah, I wrote something, what, two days before, the day before.
PAT: On vacation?
STU: Did you get paid for that? Did you get paid for that? I want that donated to Pakistani charities.
GLENN: (Laughing). So anyway, what I realized was, over vacation because I had time to get away from everything. It's almost sad to watch the once great lion of the republic, the press, just implode. And he just don't they're flailing. They don't know what to do. They just don't know what to do. They don't know how to explain it, they don't know what's going on. Time magazine wrote something gosh, I saw it on Saturday going up to Alaska. What was it, in oh, it was on 8/28. It said Glenn Beck, he gathers all these people here, but he didn't even know what to do with them. He left them all confused and going home. No, no. The only ones that were confused were the reporters. You are so out of step and out of touch with the American people that you don't it's sad. So the message that we need to be focusing on on the media is, they are so far behind in your rearview mirror, it doesn't matter. You have already won. You've already won. Now it's just making sure that you're consistently doing the things that you say that are important to do. I believe faith, hope and charity. I believe these are the things that are going to turn and transform the country. And it doesn't, it doesn't matter. Just don't you be ashamed of what you believe. Don't do it anymore. Don't be a mouse, don't be like, well, I really don't want no. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Say it with love in your heart. But remember Jesus turned over a few tables himself. You don't go there's no reason to burn a Koran. Those who want to burn books will destroy themselves. And those who want to chop people's heads off because they're homosexuals and the Koran says that that's well, they will destroy themselves as well. As long as you do one thing: Know what you believe and take a stand.
