Glenn Beck: Lawrence O'Donnell is a coward

GLENN: We have the new theme from the Lawrence O'Donnell show.

(Music playing)

GLENN: He was basically calling GOP GOP's Michael Steele a minstrel that was

just dancing for his master. So I think this should actually be the new theme.

Can we we should just, we should start it here for the for NBC. You know,

Lawrence, why don't you just send Michael Steele a pair of white gloves,

seriously. Man, if Lawrence could just dress Michael Steele up as a lawn jockey,

wouldn't that be great? You'd use that, maybe you'd just make that Lawrence, why

don't you just make that into your logo of your show. You just have Michael

Steele, you know, in the little corner of the for your logo. Just, that would be

I don't think that would be racist at all to say.

STU: Wouldn't be racist. I just it would crowd out the masturbation theme a

little bit, and that's an issue.

GLENN: Okay, stop. You know, the interesting thing here is I'm going to continue

to torture him because that is exactly what the left does. I don't think that

Lawrence O'Donnell is a racist, I don't think he meant that it was a minstrel

show. I don't think he meant that reference at all, but they would never, ever

give that credit to anyone else. Ever. Ever.

PAT: Nobody on the right would ever get the benefit of the doubt.



MSNBC’s O’Donnell to Steele: ‘Mr. Chairman, I Sincerely Apologize’

GLENN: No. And he immediately came out and


he apologized and said I didn't mean it that way, blah, blah blah. And what

would they do? They would continue to say, it doesn't matter; I know what's in

his heart. So Larry, we know what's in your heart. You're an evil, evil racist,

bigoted man.

STU: (Laughing).

STU: And he did actually apologize, Pat?

GLENN: Yeah, he did.

STU: Really?

PAT: Yeah, he did.

GLENN: But he only apologized after he had to.

PAT: Well, he got a call immediately, he talks about this, and he even plays we

have the audio.

GLENN: Oh, you do?

PAT: Yeah, if you want to hear it.

GLENN: But if we play it, only Lawrence O'Donnell has heard this happened on the

show?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Only Lawrence O'Donnell heard this.

STU: Assuming he wasn't wearing noise cancelling headphones.

GLENN: He may have.

STU: If he was, then no one heard it.

GLENN: Yeah, he may have. All right. Go ahead.

VOICE: We actually prerecorded the interview with Michael Steele a few hours

before the show. So he did not have a chance to hear those words in that

introduction.

GLENN: Wait, you mean the words of when he called him a minstrel, just dancing

for his masters?

PAT: Right.

STU: This is great. He pretapes the interview, then talks tough in the intro

like he's this big tough guy.

GLENN: Sarah, what would be an appropriate song to lead the Lawrence O'Donnell

show every night? Do you have any, any suggestions at all?

(Music playing).

GLENN: Huh, all right. This would be an interesting selection. Go ahead.

O'DONNELL: At 10:00 p.m. he called me and left this voice mail.

STEELE: Hey, this is Chairman Michael Steele calling. I wanted to touch bases

with you and follow up on the interview yesterday. First, the disappointment

that you would refer to me in effect as a slave to the RNC by referring to the

RNC and the, you know, leadership of this party as my mastor

GLENN: Hold on just a second, just a little just a little Al Jolson for

Lawrence. Hey, Larry, we all love going back to 1930 whatever, when race

relations were the way apparently you want them to be. All right, go ahead,

Michael Steele.

STEELE: I'm not really appreciated, you know. I've had to put up with that crap

my entire political life, you know. Really disappointed in your reference there

and would appreciate a correction to the record because you can imagine if, umm,

the RNC referred to Barack Obama as a, you know, a slave to the Democratic Party

or more appropriately as you put it

GLENN: A minstrel dancer.

STEELE: you know, the Democratic Party is masters to Barack Obama, you would be

hitting the roof on the air. So I think we need to check that.

O'DONNELL: I called him back immediately and apologized for using the word that

he found offensive. Those of us who are not descended from slaves can never know

the full impact of the word "Master" in the ears of an African American man.

Michael Steele told me, quote, sort of stung. He could not have been more

gracious and forgiving. He also told me, quote, the interview was a lot of fun;

I loved our give and take; I will be back on the show. I invited him on the show

tonight so that I could apologize to him directly in front of everyone who had

seen the interview. He said that wasn't necessary and that the apology on the

phone was more than anyone else had done who had sleighted him in the past. He

shared with me a bitter memory about a congressman who four years ago in the

heat of a campaign publicly accused Steele of slavishly reporting the Republican

Party.

PAT: Oh, boy.

O'DONNELL: Michael Steele is still waiting for a personal apology on that one.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

O'DONNELL: As to the rewrite, what I should have said is

GLENN: Yes.

O'DONNELL: as the first congressional election during his party chairmanship

approaches, Michael Steele is dancing as fast as he can trying to charm

independent voters and tea partyers

GLENN: Hold on just a second.

O'DONNELL: while never forgetting.

GLENN: Hold on just a second. So he should still use the dancing minstrel thing.

He's still a dancing minstrel. Charming people. Okay, all right, Larry. I think

you've learned your lesson. Yes, go ahead.

O'DONNELL: His job title, chairman of the Republican National Committee.

PAT: All right.

STU: By the way, who

GLENN: Turn this up. This is the best part.

(Music playing)

GLENN: Now, Lawrence, Lawrence O'Donnell talks about the slavishly the reference

there. Can you help us out with that?

STU: Yeah, there was a congressman who called Michael Steele, said he was

slavishly supporting the Republican Party, and that was a completely racist mark

by Republican Steny Hoyer who came out and really

PAT: Steny Hoyer's a Democrat.

STU: You say these things over the line, Pat. Don't defend him because he's a

Republican.

PAT: No, I'm not.

STU: Steny Hoyer, he shouldn't have said it.

PAT: He's not a Republican.

STU: Steny Hoyer?

PAT: He's the majority leader in the House for the Democrats.

STU: Currently?

PAT: Yeah, currently the majority leader.

STU: Wow.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. I'm wondering if Lawrence O'Donnell thinks that...

thinks that maybe Michael Steele could dance and do this, the whistling thing?

That's pretty cool. I'd vote for any candidate.

PAT: Huh?

STU: Nice.

GLENN: That was you, Pat?

PAT: Yeah. But I wasn't dancing at the same time.

GLENN: Wow. What candidate do you want me to vote for?

PAT: Christine O'Donnell?

GLENN: Really?

GLENN: Yes.

GLENN: She wants to ban she wants to ban masturbation.

PAT: I know. That's because it's evil, but I want you to vote for her anyway.

GLENN: How are you going to have the masturbation police come in? I heard it on

the Lawrence O'Donnell show.

PAT: They are going to break down doors all over the country.

GLENN: Really?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And you're for that?

PAT: And just shoot people.

GLENN: And you're for that?

PAT: Of course I'm for that.

GLENN: Are you a Fabian socialist?

PAT: No, but I'm just, I'm a person who's got moral values.

GLENN: So I don't understand the connection there. You're just for anybody with

moral

PAT: I'm just for anybody who is doing something that evil to be shot dead.

GLENN: Huh, really?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I didn't know that.

PAT: Yeah. It's in the Bible. I'm still in the Bible here. I'm still in the

Bible text.

STU: Thank you, Jeremiah, for that.

GLENN: I appreciate that.

PAT: Sure.

GLENN: When you said it was in the Bible, I thought it was like that other guy

that wanted to make sure that your wife only answers to you in Florida, you

know, that Grayson is losing to. You know.

STU: That's right.

PAT: Yeah, by what, seven points?

PAT: Seven points.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Does he even need to have his name on the ballot or can it just be Allan

Grayson: The other person.

STU: Right.

GLENN: The other person, not Allan Grayson.

STU: You know when you're an incumbent and you're rocketing up to 36% from your

own constituency, you are a good you are doing well.

PAT: On fire.

STU: You're doing well.

GLENN: By the way, MSNBC, I don't know if the rights to this music still

available. I mean-- but you should check into them for the Lawrence O'Donnell

show. But they're also doing something else very special. Can we play the

Declaration of Forward, their new ad campaign. And listen to this.

(Ad campaign playing)

GLENN: They're showing all pictures of...

VOICE: We hold these truths to be self evident.

GLENN: Yes, what are they?

VOICE: That all men and women have certain unalienable rights.

GLENN: Given by who?

VOICE: Life.

GLENN: Life.

VOICE: Liberty.

GLENN: Liberty.

VOICE: Pursuit of happiness.

GLENN: Yes, but who gave them?

VOICE: And the freedom to believe that while history has gotten us this far...

our best days are still ahead.

GLENN: Yes. Yes?

VOICE: We are the United States of "come as you are."

GLENN: What?

VOICE: Our differences are what unite us. So starting today maybe ideas that

advance our country, no matter who or where they come from.

GLENN: Oh, even communism?

PAT: As long as they come from progressives. Lean Forward.

GLENN: Lean Forward.

STU: Who is that an ad for?

PAT: MSNBC.

GLENN: MSNBC. That is their new ad campaign, it's called Lean Forward.

STU: They intentionally did that?

GLENN: Yes, it is the Declaration of Forward is what they're calling it and, you

know, that all men have certain inalienable rights.

PAT: They just do.

GLENN: Created equal.

PAT: They just do.

GLENN: They just do.

PAT: Okay?

GLENN: And our differences are what unite us.

STU: You are missing the part where they corrected the Founding Fathers, though,

because the stupid racist, hating Founding Fathers were just men.

GLENN: Can we use it for a stupid racist hating kind of people?

STU: We probably do, yeah.

GLENN: Oh, here it is.

STU: I hear it now.

GLENN: That's like Lawrence O'Donnell, the bigot?

STU: No, they said men and women are created equal because the hateful Founding

Fathers left out the women.

PAT: Yeah, because they hated all women.

STU: And they correct them by getting rid of that stupid creator part and we

didn't need that.

PAT: That's only for superstitious people.

STU: Exactly.

GLENN: Lean Forward. We can make progress. Ah, okay, all right.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Well, thank you, MSNBC, and go masturbation.

Our sponsor this half hour

STU: That's another slogan possibility.

GLENN: It is, it is.

STU: There's a lot there.

GLENN: Lean Forward... and masturbate.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: Can I tell you something? Jesus would be very disappointed in my

broadcast today and so would Gandhi.

STU: Probably.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: But they would be laughing at least.

GLENN: Yeah. You no. No, they wouldn't.

STU: They wouldn't find it amusing as us.

On the morning of Aug. 15, Asma was a free woman in Kabul. She wore Western clothes. Traveled safely alone. Attended college in a neighboring country with the money her parents had saved. By that evening, her entire world had changed.

For the first time in her life, Asma was confronted with the reality of the Taliban. The horror stories she heard growing up were no longer the nightmare of her parents' generation. They were hers, too. Faced with the impossible decision to stay with her family and risk imminent torture or death, she chose to live, and take on the Taliban face-to-face.

Asma's bravery also led to the rescue of over 150 Afghan college women. She tells Glenn she was willing to die before she let the Taliban take her or the other women. But she didn't do it alone. Her sister Azada, helplessly watching the horror unfold from the U.S., quickly turned to her father's contact list. What follows is a miracle evacuation story that ends with a sisters' reunion and hope for a new future. These brave Afghan sisters have a message for those in their home country still trapped, for the leaders of this country, and for the men and women in uniform (and their families) who may believe the American sacrifices for Afghanistan were in vain.

Finally, a note about the other heroes in the rescue story. The movement of the seven buses of college women into the Kabul airport was a chain with about 8-10 links. Had any one of those links not been present or broken, the young women would not have made it into the airport for evacuation, and three young women taken by the Taliban would not have been recovered.

Glenn and his team would like to give a special thanks to Francisco from Arcis International, Wade and Jim from Commercial Task Force, Blaine from E3 Ranch Foundation, Michael and his crew from Kam Air, No One Left Behind, Samaritan's Purse, and Charmaine, Chris, Geno, John, Lori, Rob, Rudy & the Ground Team from The Nazarene Fund.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.
