Exposed: Hillary's racist agenda

GLENN: Real quick, Dan, I promised that we would get in a little bit to this article that was written to me in the Ohio State, what is it called, the LAN earn?

DAN: The Lantern, yes.

GLENN: Which is the Ohio State University newspaper and it was written by a journalism student, a Junior, 30-year-old journalism student who wrote this article about me and it was -- the whole thing was proving a point in a sarcastic way about how easy it is to call somebody a racist. If I can call Hillary Clinton a racist or anybody who supports her a racist for not voting for Barack Obama and it came out we did this monologue the Monday after Bill Clinton was kind of slipping some things in there and I said, oh, my gosh, I love this; look how easy it is to be them! . This journalism student wrote a very long, intense, very condescending article about how stupid people are that listen to talk radio. Journalism students are not and they saw that I was calling people racists and Hillary Clinton is clearly not a racist, nor are her supporters, and he goes into all kinds of stuff, and people just need to be careful when they're listening to the radio because you'll hear nonsense like this that just isn't true. What a dummy! This guy should get an F in journalism just for the -- he should never be allowed to be a journalist just based on this, unless he says, oh, my gosh, was I an idiot; I've learned my lesson.

DAN: Right, right. Well, apparently they are standing by their man at the Lantern.

GLENN: Oh, of course they are.

DAN: I'm sure they got a few e-mails after they included this article and your commentary in our daily newsletter and so here's one of the responses actually they got back. Somebody e-mailed in basically asking what kind of program are you running there; does anyone actually read the stuff before it's published. And their response is, thanks for your input. You are more than welcome to either teach a class or come work with the editors of the paper.

GLENN: Oh, I would love -- I would love to go teach a journalism class. May I go teach a journalism class? I bet I have more experience than the professor.

DAN: Well, I don't know if they like, you know, people who skew things like you do, Glenn.

GLENN: No, no, no. No, no. I have it from the editor of the San Francisco Chronicle that I'm a journalist.

DAN: That's right, that's right. So you do have the credentials.

GLENN: Yeah. One of the most liberal papers in the country. The editor said on television I'm a journalist. I said, no, I'm not. He said, yes, you are. Okay. I would love to teach a journalism class. Wouldn't that be fun?

DAN: Be very interesting indeed. And they say, by the way, opinion articles are just that, opinion. We will definitely take submissions from you, by the way.

Now, that's great. You know, maybe it was an opinion piece. That's fine. But you might want to have your, you know, writers on staff base their opinion on something that's fact. I'm just saying.

GLENN: I mean, that's incredible. That's incredible. Opinion is opinion. You are right. Opinion is opinion and everybody has an opinion. But there's something also that, you know, borders slander. I mean, you know, if I went on and I said, my gosh, I just can't, I just can't believe how Hillary Clinton is, you know, --

DAN: Killing babies. That murderer!

GLENN: Killing babies for folks, that's crazy talk!

DAN: I'm against that!

GLENN: Who's not against that? You should be aware that if you're voting for Hillary Clinton, you would be voting for somebody who's killing babies. I think there's a difference between having actual facts back up your opinion. But what do I know? You know, I'm not a journalist -- oh, no, wait. I am a journalist. Oh, that makes me happy. Thanks, San Francisco Chronicle.

Legal scholar and famed criminal defense attorney Alan Dershowitz has a message for partisans dividing America: "A plague on both your houses." He voted for Hillary Clinton. He endorsed Joe Biden. He's a man who is basically the Forrest Gump of American judicial history.

Look up a big court case over the past few decades, and you'll probably see him standing in the background. He's represented notorious clients like Mike Tyson, Patty Hearst, Harry Reems, Harvey Weinstein, Jeffrey Epstein, and yes, Donald Trump. It's made him a target for both the left and right.

Alan also describes himself as a "civil libertarian," and that's probably why he and Glenn Beck get along despite their opposing political views. His story is like a history lesson, spanning half a century, and it just might be the key to bridging the political divide.

On this week's podcast, Alan explained that while he's a strong defender of the Constitution, he's never been a big fan of the Second Amendment. In the past he's called it absurd and outdated, and even today, he admits that he wouldn't have ingrained it into our Constitution if he was a framer. However, with the whole Bill of Rights under attack, he's now fully in defense of our right to bear arms. Because if the Second Amendment changes, any amendment could be next.

"I'm now a supporter of the Second Amendment. I don't want to change it. I don't want to change one word of it, because I'm afraid that if I get to change the Second Amendment, other people will get to change the First Amendment, and the Fifth Amendment," Alan said. "So, I am committed to preserving the Bill of Rights, every single word, every comma, and every space between the words."

Investigative reporter David Steinberg joined the radio program Monday, to explain how a new video may provide enough evidence to begin a FBI investigation into alleged illegal practices by Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar's campaign.

In the video, which was produced and released by Project Veritas, residents of Omar's community describe campaign teams that not only conduct illegal ballot harvesting practices but also pay people for their blank absentee ballots.

Steinberg told Glenn that, if these charges prove to be true, the federal government could bypass Omar's friend and protector, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison. Could 2020 be the beginning of the end for Omar's political career?

Mike Fratantuono is the manager of Sunset Restaurant in Glen Burnie, Maryland. He wrote in the Washington Post's COVID-19 series about the recent, heartbreaking loss of his business, a restaurant that has been in his family for "four generations and counting."

"I know this virus is real, okay? It's real and it's awful. I'm not disputing any of that," Mike wrote. "But our national hysteria is worse. We allowed the virus to take over our economy, our small businesses, our schools, our social lives, our whole quality of life. We surrendered, and now everything is infected."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck reacted to Mike's letter, which he shared in full, adding his hope that those in government are ultimately held responsible for what he called the biggest theft of the Western world.

"This is the biggest theft of, not only money, but of heritage and of hope," Glenn said. "The United States government and many of the states are responsible for this, not you. And hopefully someday soon, we'll return to some semblance of sanity, and those responsible for this theft, this rape of the Western world, will be held responsible."

We did our homework over the weekend; we did the research so we can tell you what is likely coming from Senate Democrats regarding President Trump's Supreme Court Nominee Amy Coney Barrett. Based on our research and the anonymous people who have already come forward to talk about Coney Barrett's youth, these are the main shocking things you can expect Senate Democrats to seize on during the confirmation process…

A man has come forward under the banner of "#MenToo," to say that in second grade, Amy Coney Barrett and her best friend at the time, cornered him at a birthday party at Chuck-E-Cheese and "injected him with a full dose of cooties." Which, if true, would obviously be disqualifying for serving on the highest court in the land.

Then there's a woman who says when she was nine-years-old, she lived on the same street as Amy Coney Barrett. She alleges that Coney-Barrett borrowed her VHS tape of Herbie Goes Bananas and did not return it for at least six months. And then when she did finally get the tape back, the woman says Coney Barrett did not even bother to rewind it. The FBI has interviewed at least two witnesses so far who say the tape was indeed not rewound and that it was very upsetting to the owner of the tape. Again, if true, this is troubling – clearly not the kind of integrity you want to see in a Supreme Court justice.

Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it.

The same neighbor also dropped a bombshell allegation about the drinking problem of Amy Coney Barrett and her closest friends. Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it. The neighbor says she "frequently" witnessed Coney-Barrett and her friends chugging entire cartons of milk – often Whole Milk, sometimes Chocolate Milk, occasionally both at the same time through a funnel.

Unfortunately, shooting-up cooties, injurious rewinding, and potential calcium-abuse are not even the worst of it.

A third person has now come forward, another man, and this is just reprehensible, it's hard to even fathom. But he alleges that in fourth grade, when they were around ten-years-old, Amy Coney Barrett and a group of "four or five of her friends" gang-GRAPED him on the playground during recess. He alleges the group of friends snuck uneaten grapes out of the cafeteria and gang-GRAPED him repeatedly in broad daylight. In other words, and I hate to have to spell this out because it's kind of graphic, but the group led by ten-year-old Amy Coney Barrett pelted this poor defenseless boy with whole grapes. He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

Obviously, even if just one of these allegations is half-true, no Senator with a conscience could possibly vote to confirm Coney Barrett. When there is a clear pattern of destructive childhood behavior, it always continues into adulthood. Because people do not change. Ever.

Fortunately, for the sake of the Republic, Democrats plan to subpoena Coney Barrett's childhood diary, to see what, if any, insights it may provide into her calcium habits, as well as her abuse of illicit cooties and the gang-GRAPING incident.

We will keep you posted on the latest, but for now, it looks like Democrats will find plenty in the reckless pre-teen life of Amy Coney Barrett to cast doubt on her nomination. And if not, they can always fall back on her deranged preference for letting babies be born.
