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.

 

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
