Does Glenn Beck really think that Tea Party members are racists?

And now, I defend the Pope against charges of atheism.

 

So, Glenn Beck, the guy who has spent more than two years defending the Tea Party, now thinks the Tea Party is filled with racists?  That’s what we’re supposed to believe today?  Seriously?

 

Ugh…ok.  It all starts with Glenn on Fox Business when Glenn asked the question—how can the Tea Party support a progressive like Newt Gingrich? What is it?  Race?  You can watch the interview here.

 

Now, I suppose if Glenn was some MSNBC host, and that’s all the information you had, it’s possible you could think that Glenn believes the Tea Party is filled with evil racists.  But, that’s not the case, because we are real people who live on earth.  One of the benefits of living on earth, is that we can look at other events that have happened on earth, and judge that event in context.

 

Does Glenn make points in ways that often piss people off?  Yup.  Welcome to the Glenn Beck program: the show that once made a point by claiming, for a full hour, that he had once kissed his sister.

 

Some people were shocked by what Glenn said.  I wasn’t particularly stunned, given that he had made the exact same point on the radio two days earlier.  The only difference between the two is that, on his own show, where he controls the flow of conversation, Glenn was able to fully make the point.  Here is the transcript:

 

GLENN:  This is going back to Roosevelt.  Listen to this because this is the same thing.  America, the disease is progressivism.  It is not Republicans, it is not Democrats, and damn you, Tea Party people, you make your choice.  Was it about Barack Obama?  Is it because he's black?  Or is it his damn policies?  

STU:  Certainly not because he's black, as you know.  

GLENN:  I know that.  But then if you are supporting Newt Gingrich, where are you going?  Who are you?

 

Does that sound like someone who thinks the Tea Party is actually racist?  Or does it someone saying he really doesn’t think Newt is the Tea Party candidate?   Remember, this is BEFORE the Fox Business interview.  Are we really supposed to believe that Glenn, after 3 years of unparalleled support of the Tea Party, now thinks they’re racists?  Are we really supposed to believe that in a period of 48 hours, Glenn went from specifically saying “I know” that this isn’t about the race, to believing the exact opposite?

 

I get it. Glenn didn’t explain himself with the appropriate 32 minutes of disclaimers…once.  But…really?  He has been one of the nation's most consistent supporters of the Tea Party, especially on issues of race.  To give just one example of the thousands that exist:

 

GLENN: But that's not why people are rising up.  It's such a ridiculous thing.  We're not rising up---the tea party ---because of Barak Obama or because of ---How unbelievably infantile do you have to be to believe it's because he's black? That's such a third grade argument it's ridiculous.

 

Look, you can disagree with Glenn’s point, that Newt and Obama are both too progressive. You can disagree with how he made that point.  I’ve been more critical of Newt than most, but if it comes down to him and Obama, I can’t think of a scenario in which I don’t hold my nose and vote for Newt.  But, only an idiot would believe that Glenn Beck actually thinks the Tea Party is filled with racists.  If that’s what he was really saying, he was calling me, his best friend Pat, and probably the majority of his staff racists.  I think he’d likely be calling himself a racist when it comes down to it.

 

Anyway, a borderline(?) psychotic blogger who hates Catholicism just told me the Pope is an atheist! Do you believe that?!!!!?!?

This MUST be why Trump (allegedly) had NUCLEAR documents at Mar-a-Lago

According to the Washington Post's "anonymous sources," the FBI was looking for documents related to nuclear weapons during its raid of Mar-a-Lago.

Who could have guessed what Donald Trump did with those documents (never mind that he allegedly had them for over a year before the FBI actually did anything)? And who knows why they were searching through Melania's drawers for such top-secret information? Also, isn't it interesting that even after both Attorney General Merrick Garland and Donald Trump asked for the search warrant to be unsealed, only this very unspecific and very damning bit of information was "leaked" to the Washington Post? And just a few months before the midterm elections?

Since the DOJ still hasn't told us much (what was leaked to the media), Glenn did his best to present a few "theories" of his own on "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday. Watch the video clip below to hear more from "The Glenn Beck Program." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

New details emerge about Trump raid — and 'it doesn't look good for the FBI'

New, alleged details about the raid of former President Donald Trump's home at Mar-a-Lago hint that it's "not looking good for the FBI," said BlazeTV host Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday.

Trump has faced attacks from every direction, but despite all of it, he has "not been found guilty or had any kind of real, solid evidence against him," Glenn pointed out.

Glenn detailed a long list of investigations, accusations, and lawsuits against Trump, and the latest puzzling revelations about the FBI's raid of Mar-a-Lago, which only seem to raise even more questions. For example, did agents truly refuse to give Trump's lawyer a copy of the warrant upon arriving at the home? Because sources have alleged that his attorney was kept "10 feet away from the warrant" and was not allowed to actually read it. If that's true, then it was absolutely against the law.

Then there was the inordinate amount of time spent going through Melania Trump's closet. And did they have the proper authority to break into Trump's safe?

"That warrant had better damn well say that they can break into that safe because the law is, you can't go into somebody's house and ... just tear it all apart," Glenn said. "You have to have a pretty good idea of where things might be located, and you ask for permission for those areas. And you have to know exactly what you're looking for, and if it's in a safe, you need to specifically say, 'it's in a safe and we're having a safe cracker come in.' If they didn't say in the warrant that they could crack his safe, it's the fruit of the poisoned tree. By the way, there was nothing in the safe."

Glenn also explained that the FBI broke into a specific "safe room" that contained national archives, which Trump was allegedly told by investigators to keep in a locked room.

"[Trump] made a safe room, and put two locks on it, at their request. And that's what they broke into," Glenn said. "This doesn't look good for the FBI," he added.

There’s an economic axis of evil taking shape right now, and the people in charge of our government are too stupid to acknowledge and deal with what’s happening. The U.S. dollar and the entire financial system are at stake, and, as Glenn Beck reveals on "Glenn TV" Wednesday, our enemies’ PUBLISHED plans to take the entire thing down.

While all of this is happening, our own leaders are making everything worse. We’ve got Nancy Pelosi risking an international incident, accelerating China’s plans to collapse us. And when Biden SHOULD be focusing on the security of our country, he’s instead preoccupied with controlling the weather with his Inflation "Reduction" Act.

Glenn exposes the TRUE numbers on what that bill will do to your family’s budget. Add to that, they’re more than doubling the IRS to make sure you feel the pain. And if you think they won’t come for you, look at what they just did to the former president of the United States. The DOJ and FBI just went after the political opponent of their boss, Joe Biden.

This is what they are focused on, and the threat to the dollar — and the entire financial system — isn’t even on their radar. Pain is coming for us, and they don’t care one bit.

Speaking before signing the “PACT Act of 2022” on Wednesday morning, President Joe Biden claimed that his wonderful economic plan "is working" and that somehow July’s annual inflation rate of 8.5% was actually “zero.”

“I just want to say a number: zero. Today we received news that our economy had 0% inflation in the month of July,” Biden said during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dutifully echoed the president's not-at-all misleading claim:

The truth of the matter is that last month's inflation rate of 8.5% was a (small) step in the right direction, but only because it was lower than June's 41-year high of 9.1% — and the thing is, anyone who's graduated kindergarten knows it.

So, who do White House personnel think they're fooling? On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere broke down how the Biden administration came to this latest disingenuous conclusion about the economy, what the latest consumer price index actually shows, and why the inevitable Biden brag-fest will be unbearable.
