Tea Party more diverse than Dems



TheBlaze: What Does CBS’s Controversial Obama Picture Mean?

GLENN: May I ask, there's this picture on the Blaze that CBS published and it's a doctored photo of Barack Obama with Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer on one side and republicans on the other. And the picture of Barack Obama, which is in the center, he has a line down his face and he's whiter on one side, the side of the republicans and blacker on the other side. Now, it's a very bizarre picture. And the first time I saw it I didn't think anything of it. I didn't -- I didn't think of the black/white issue at all. I just thought that's an awful picture.

STU: Does look like they intentionally --

GLENN: You can see the line.

STU: You can see the line down the middle.

GLENN: And the question is now, people are saying: Why? Why is Barack Obama whiter on the right and blacker on the left? And CBS, I guess, still hasn't come out with any kind of statement. Creative Minority Report says are they saying that Obama has to act white with republicans? The idiocy of this is only heightened by the fact that Obama's heritage is mixed. Noel Shepherd at News Busters, "Are ABC AP, not so subtly implying that the GOP are all white?"

STU: I hate that all the Tea Partyers always bringing up the race issue. All the time these tea parties.

GLENN: What do you think that is?

STU: That's seems like potentially what they're saying. I don't know. I don't understand why you would color correct a picture with a line down the guy's face. That's something, that if you did it, would be the last day on the air.

GLENN: It would be the last day of my broadcast career.

STU: But CBS because they clearly are probably making some point against the tea parties or something like that, it's okay.

GLENN: I don't know. By the way, Pat, why don't you give me the outcome on how racist the GOP and the tea parties really are.

PAT: Do you really want to go down that road?

GLENN: I think we expose it. I think we have to say how racist they are.

PAT: Couldn't we just ignore it? Because it's so awful and hope people don't notice it?

GLENN: No, let's address it and make sure we get it out in the open. Let's lance this racist wound. Go ahead.

PAT: The racist, horrible, hateful Tea Party elected more minorities than Democrats did. Including Governor Sandoval in Nevada or was that -- yes, Nevada. First Hispanic governor. Brian Sandoval, Latino Republican. They elected him. New Mexico elected Susannah Martinez, nation's first Hispanic female governor. Florida, of course, elected Marco Rubio, son of a Cuban immigrant. And South Carolina elected Republican Nicky Hailey, state's first female, whose parents immigrated from India, as well as Tim Scott, the state's first black Republican Congressman. There's a few more. There's Allen West, the first black Republican elected to Congress from Florida. Since a former slave served two terms in the 1870s. Two Latino republicans from Texas, Congressman Bill Flores and Francisco Canseco. It's awful. A racist bloodbath.

GLENN: Let's try to figure out, let's just try to figure out what is the game the Republicans and Tea Parties are playing? What is it? Because you know they're not doing it because they're judging someone by the content of their character, not the color of their skin.

STU: No, they're not trying to find the best candidates.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
