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.

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."
