ADL's massive flip flop on Beck



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

GLENN: (Laughing). So last night I'm on the set and my producers come down and some of the executives come down from, you know, the high rise down to the studio, and I can always tell by the look on their face when there's trouble. And they said New York Times is going to run a story you're an anti Semite. And I said, oh, am I? Is that what I am now? Really? I'm an anti Semite?

So here in a nutshell is just some of the highlights from the New York Times story. Stu, you want to take this?

STU: Yes, I definitely do.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: I find it interesting, especially when you're about to read this letter that they did not use, it's almost as if they either didn't even read their own article or it's hard to even understand how this occurs, but they talk about how evil you are and everything and how you're being attacked for saying things that are horrific and offensive, blah, blah blah, blah blah. But the two quotes, living two paragraphs away from each other, are particularly interesting. It says you're talking about how George Soros, his childhood and the horrible things that happened in his childhood and you say, quote: I am certainly not saying that George Soros enjoyed that, even had a choice. I mean, he's 14 years old. He was surviving. So I'm not making a judgment.

GLENN: Okay. Hang on just a second. I want you to read that again and, Pat, can you find the audio of George Soros where he says it was the best year of his life?

PAT: I'll look for it.

GLENN: I mean, I'm even giving him the credit that he didn't enjoy it, although even though he said himself it was the best year of his life. But I'm willing to say, okay, well, I'm missing some subtleties here, you know, in the Holocaust years.

STU: Yeah. I mean, you know, look

GLENN: Life is beautiful. It's the story of life is beautiful. I'm willing to go there.

STU: So here's the quote again from you: I am certainly not saying that George Soros enjoyed that, even if he had a excuse me. I am certainly not saying that George Soros enjoyed that, even had a choice. I mean, he's 14 years old. He was surviving. So I am not making a judgment, end quote.

Then two paragraphs later from Abe Foxman attacking you saying, quote: To hold a young boy responsible for what was going on around him during the Holocaust as part of a larger effort to denigrate the man is repugnant.

Did you even see the segment? Did you see the segment? Did you read the quote or did you just take an e mail from someone else and just pop something out?

GLENN: Abe

STU: I don't understand this.

GLENN: Abe, here is what I would and I don't share personal letters, but I'm going to share yours because this I find absolutely incredible from the Anti Defamation League. ADL and we never mentioned this on the air. ADL sent a direct mail piece before the elections out to their supporters, and in that direct mail piece they identified me as a guy making anti Semitic comments. I never once said anything on the air. But we did bring it up to the ADL and say, uh, hello. Can you name those anti Semitic comments, please? Hello.

We received this letter: Dear Glenn, a direct mail piece recently sent to some ADL supporters around the country inadvertently misidentified you on the list of celebrities that had made anti Semitic statements over the past year. This was clearly a mistake and we deeply regret that your name was included in the mailing which was produced by an independent third party contractor. I hope you will accept my personal responsibility my personal apologies.

He could have ended the letter there, but he didn't. "Even though we may disagree from time to time, I know that you are a friend of the Jewish people and a friend of Israel. Sincerely, Abe Foxman, national director of the ADL."

PAT: Okay, but that was what? 1993?

GLENN: It was October 22nd, 2010. So it was way

PAT: Way, way, way back.

GLENN: You've got to go into the time machine.

PAT: Last month.

GLENN: Way back.

PAT: Way back to late last month to get that.

GLENN: That letter is they didn't find any relevance in that at all. That letter was not included in the New York Times. It is on the front page of TheBlaze.com today.

PAT: Of course they didn't include it.

STU: Unbelievable.

PAT: Because if the New York Times includes that story, they don't have a story!

STU: Yep, don't have a story. They have to

PAT: There is not a thing they can say about it.

STU: Yeah. They just have to not post something.

PAT: Something.

STU: I mean, they are certainly not going to the point of proving that this is an obviously political, an obviously political attack.

GLENN: Here's the thing.

PAT: It's a hack job.

GLENN: Here's the thing.

STU: Horrible.

 

President Joe Biden and world leaders are spending the week discussing the biggest issues across the globe. But Mike Pompeo, former Secretary of State during the Trump administration, believes more needs to be done.

Pompeo joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to talk about President Biden's upcoming meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin, and to explain why he believes it's not just "appropriate," but necessary to hold Putin accountable for the recent cyberattacks on the Colonial Pipeline and the JBS meat processing company.

Pompeo said it's likely that "at the very least" Putin turned a blind eye to the major attacks against U.S. infrastructure. He stressed that the Biden administration should not abandon private businesses in the face of these ransomware hacks, but rather do everything possible to make sure those businesses' assets are secure from future invasions.

"This is an attack on America," Pompeo said. "It came through an attack on a commercial enterprise, but the capacity for pipelines to move product around on our east coast is an American national security interest.... We have to help these businesses protect their systems, and then there has to be a national effort to impose costs on those who put American lives at risk by denying available product around our country.

"Putin, at the very least, is turning a blind eye to [the cyberattacks], probably more. So, it's appropriate to hold Vladimir Putin and the Russians accountable for the actions taking place inside of their country," he added. "We have to do it, and there are tools by which we can."

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn read from the Bible's II Timothy 3, in which Paul warns of "perilous times" to come and describes a generation that will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, and the list goes on. Sound familiar?

But Glenn said the times we're facing — which will likely become more and more difficult — are not any graver than what our Founders faced. We can overcome, and while it won't be easy, it will be worth it.

"Just like George Washington and the badge of merit, we will not be able to conquer this evil unless we are on God's side. If we don't have Divine Providence, we will not be able to survive. The things that are arrayed in front of us, are no greater no less than what our Founders had arrayed against them," Glenn stated.

"So, what will we do? You must make those decisions, as a family, right now. What is the line for you that you and your family will not cross? Because if you don't know it now, you will cross it," he warned. "You have to speak out, be that voice. You have to be strong enough to lead."

Glenn went on to thank and praise his audience, saying, "This is the kindest, most generous audience I have ever encountered."

"You will stand. This audience could be the extra 5% that is needed to change things, for the better," he added. "We have great and glorious times, when I believe we will see the hand of God. We will see miracles. Expect them. And live in such a way where you can call them down."

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."
