GLENN BECK PROGRAM


BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

GLENN: I wanted to tell you what we have allowed to fester, the ACLU, the American Civil Liberties Union, why there are for foot baths and they're against the Baby Jesus?

Why a university publicly funded can put foot baths for Muslims in their bathrooms, why they are for foot baths in airports funded with federal dollars, they'll fight for that. But Baby Jesus, you can't have Baby Jesus. What? Are you kidding me? Can you imagine if I said, "hey I need the thing with the holy water so I can cross myself because I'm a Catholic? "Can you imagine? The ACLU would be all over it.

What is the real goal? It never makes sense. The ACLU is founded in 1920. The founding director was a guy named Roger Baldwin, he founded the ACLU in 1920. 15 years later, in his college reunion yearbook, Baldwin said and I quote from his yearbook. "I have continued directing the unpopular fight for the rights of education as director of the American Civil Liberties Union I seek the social ownership of property, the abolition of the propertied class, and the sole control of those who produce wealth. Communism is the goal." End quote. This is 15 years after he founded the ACLU. This guy has never made any bones about it.

He founded it in 1920. He was active until 1981. He wrote two books. One "Letters from the Soviet Prisons" and "Liberty Under the Soviets." This is their founding father. In "Letters from Soviet Prisons" Baldwin says "The Russian revolution was, quote, the greatest and most daring experiment yet undertaken to recreate society in terms of human values of incalculable value to the development of the human world."

Now I want you to listen to this. And I'm going to tie the next phrase. You can say that's all ancient history, Glenn, he wrote those books in the '70s. Uh huh. I'm going to tie this next phrase to something, if you watch or listen to this program, you heard it you heard it before. And it was in something else we were all trying to figure out.

In his book "Liberty Under the Soviets," Baldwin defended the Soviet oppression. Still, I want you to see if you recognize this. Defending the Soviet oppression, he said "Repression in the western democracies are a violation of professed constitutional liberties and I condemn them. Such repressions in the Soviet Union are weapons of a struggle in the transition period to socialism."

Do you recognize it? Dan or Stu? Does it sound familiar to you? Are you like why do I know that?

DAN: I think I know it. I think I know it.

GLENN: Tell me.

DAN: The transition period. That's what jumped out at me.

GLENN: No. It's very good. Very good.

STU: I was thinking of the lawyer recently.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: What's her name?

GLENN: Lynn Stewart. Yes! She just was this is the woman who was defending the terrorists. She was at NYU, was it NYU it wasn't NYU. I can't remember. It was one of the they're all the same. It was at the Soviet university here on the island of Manhattan. And they had her for ethics. And she condemned the United States and its tactics.

However, with the Soviet Union, when the Soviet Union used thuggish tactics, it was in the name of the people. But she says it's wrong. Gitmo. What we're doing over in the Middle East is wrong. That was for the university, wasn't it? It's the same thing. By the way, who defended her? Who's all up in arms of poor little Lynn Stewart? My goodness, it's weird. Wouldn't be ACLU, would it?

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
