Glenn Beck: King slams troops




Satan's Mentally Challenged Younger Brother T-shirt


When Rolling Stone called Glenn's television show, "...one of the weirdest news programs in American history" we thought we'd reached the pinnacle of creative insults. But man were we wrong! Fiction author/legend Stephen King, not only beat Rolling Stone's comment, but he possessed it with demons, lit it on fire and cut off its head. In January 2007, King used his Entertainment Weekly column to call Glenn, "Satan's mentally challenged younger brother" a remark that set a new benchmark for public insult. Now you can commemorate and share that insult by buying this new t-shirt, featuring an artist's rendering of what Glenn would look like if it were true. It's not often that Glenn is insulted with such creative venom by an American legend -- don't miss your chance to spend money on it.

GLENN:  One of the jobs that apparently you just can't do, Americans just won't do or Americans just won't, you know, shouldn't do because it's just a job for stupid people, apparently our troops have gone from heroes, some of the most amazing people I've ever met, to just, they are just illiterate, they are just stupid.  There are two Americans.  There are two Americas.  There's the elitist America that hates this country, that hates capitalism, that so looks down their nose at the rest of us and then there are those of us who don't even care what those boobs say.  "Just get out of my way, will you?  I'm busy creating something over here."  There's a people who are actually doing it every day.  We're living it every day.  And then there's people like Stephen King.  This is actual audio from the Library of Congress yesterday.  Listen to this.

KING:  Reading -- I don't want to sound like an ad, a public service ad on TV but the fact is that if you can read, you can walk into a job later on.  If you don't, then you got the army, Iraq, I don't know, something like that.  It's not as bright.  So that's my little commercial for that.

GLENN:  Stop.


[ APPLAUSE ]

GLENN:  Stop.  You've got to be kidding me.  I admire the people in our military.  I've yet to meet a dummy in our military.  By the way, that's taking down two of my family members.  One in the army, one in the Navy.  Thank you.  Thank you for telling them that they're stupid.  I'm sorry that they can write, you know, 1500 page novels about somebody killing somebody with a butcher knife.  Sorry.  Have you read the end of it, Stephen King?  Please.  A giant spider?  It's a giant spider? Don't tell me I'm stupid, please.

GLENN:  I'm just calling Marcus Luttrell because Stephen King said, you know, you're really stupid, you might end up in the army.  He didn't say the Navy SEALs.  Marcus Luttrell, the author of Lone Survivor.

CALLER:  Hey, this is Marcus, can't get to the phone right now, leave a message and I'll get back to you when I can.

GLENN:  Marcus, I don't know if you heard about the comment from Stephen King, but I wanted to talk to you about it.  I know I'm speaking slowly, but you apparently are a slow learner.  So call me.  That's something to do on the telephone, tele-phone.  You don't have to worry about spelling it, but when you look at your telephone, just ask somebody to point it out to you.  Push the 1 button and then 888, that looks like a snake eating itself, 888, that's three 8s, but I don't want to use you, just push the 8 button three times.  I'm sorry.  I keep saying 3.  Forget about the 3.  It's just a 1.  And then you push 888.  Don't worry about how many times.  Just do it like that, 888.  And then 7 -- that's right next to the 8, the 2 -- right next to the 1 -- then back to the 7, which is the second seven.  You can remember that because of the 2, but that might be a little too complex for somebody like you.  And then Beck.  Forget about it.  I know you wrote that number one best seller but you probably don't know how to spell.  So just, I'll call you later, Marcus.  Thanks.  If you hear a ringing, just pick it up.  Not the whole phone, just the hand part.  No, don't pick up the whole phone -- are you there?  Maybe you are there just listening but you don't know.  Marcus, this voice is Glenn.  I'm not in this little box there on your table.  I'm actually calling from another state and I'm just calling, just -- I'll see you in a couple of weeks, Marcus.  I mean, I don't even know.  I mean, he'll never understand that.  He won't know what to do.  He is probably standing in his kitchen right now going, duh, duh, I don't know -- because as Stephen King said, you know, you're going to be a dummy if you get into the army.

STU:  You know, it actually crossed my mind for a second as you were doing that, maybe you should just e-mail him.  Can you imagine a soldier answering e-mail?  He can't read, he doesn't know about computers.  How would you even know how to plug in a computer?

GLENN:  Because you're a soldier.  I mean, oh.  It's a good thing that we have Stephen King around, isn't it, and John Kerry?  And all of these people that are smarter than us?  How long -- Stu, how long will it be before someone in the New York Times writes that Barack Obama is just too smart for the average American?

STU:  Right.

GLENN:  They don't understand him.

STU:  If he doesn't succeed, that will clearly be the cause.

GLENN:  It will be.  He's just too far ahead of us slowpokes.  He's just, he's too enlightened, he's too smart, he's too nonracist for all of us dumb, backward racists.

STU:  Especially if he gets beaten by that soldier John McCain who can't even read.

GLENN:  I don't think John McCain can read.  He's a dummy, you know.

STU:  Stephen King said so.  He wrote Pet Cemetery.

GLENN:  Did you read Pet -- well, I didn't read Pet Cemetery because I can't read, but I saw the movie and it was pretty good.  And isn't he the guy who wrote that other really good book about the car that drives itself?

STU:  The killer car?

GLENN:  Yeah, it was almost like Kit and Night Rider?  Wow, that was a great show.

STU:  But a really mean Kit and Night Rider.

GLENN:  Night Rider was like upstairs/downstairs for us dummies.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
