Ruining Your Heroes: George Bernard Shaw

You’ve probably seen the play My Fair Lady or have at least heard of the film with Audrey Hepburn, right? Delightful musical.

If you haven’t seen it, I’m sure Glenn Beck has.

FS-GLENN-BECK-SMUG

He loves the theatre.

The famous playwright George Bernard Shaw won an Oscar for the screen play “Pygmalion” which “My Fair Lady” is based on.

Georgey is a really popular guy. Just look on social media and you’ll find countless people who have made a hero out of the playwright George Bernard Shaw. Why? Because he sure had a lot of cute sayings. Like this one:

FS-GBS-PIN-FAMILY

“A happy family is but an earlier heaven.” Adorable.

You can tell how much he loves people. I found some other quotes from George Bernard Shaw that aren’t as well know. Like this one:

FS TITLE CARD HEART TEXT

“A great many people would have to be put out of existence simply because it wastes other people’s time to look after them.”

I told you he loves people. Oddly enough, no one has bothered to pin that one on Pinterest. Hmm.

I mean sure, George Bernard Shaw was an avowed Fabian socialist who LOVED eugenics and yeah, he believed everyone should have to justify their existence. You probably remember this classic:

Sure not everything Georgey said was so flowery and beautiful but he did have such a magical way with words.

Who wouldn’t want to celebrate such a wonderful, wonderful man who also said this:

FS TITLE CARD PIGGY TEXT

“I appeal to the chemists to discover a human gas that will kill instantly and painlessly. Deadly by all means, but humane not cruel.”

See, he’s so nice he wants the mass murder to be done in a humane way.

In 1934 he also wrote:

FS CUTE TEAROUT DECENT HUMAN

"The moment we face it frankly we are driven to the conclusion that the community has a right to put a price on the right to live in it … If people are fit to live, let them live under decent human conditions. If they are not fit to live, kill them in a decent human way.”

Again… kill them in a decent, human way.

Sure this might be a little creepy, but let me lighten things up with this GBS classic:

FS TITLE CARD WATER GLOBE

“The Nazi movement is in many respects one which has my warmest sympathy.”

Yeah the same guy our education system says is a genius was pretty much a fanboy of Hitler.

The New York Times wrote about his admiration in 1933. In the article, George Bernard Shaw describes Hitler as “a very remarkable, very able man,” and was a genius to realize “Germany had been kicked long enough.”

In fact, he sang Hitler’s praises every chance he could.

FS TEAROUT PRAISE HITLER

And he really didn’t care for the people Hitler was treating harshly. He had some choice words for them.

FS CUTE TEAROUT JEWS

"Stop being Jews and start being human beings."

To be fair later on, he did start to question Hitler a little bit.

FS CUTE TEAROUT MARRIAGE

“Instead of exterminating the Jews, he (Hitler) should have said, I will tolerate Jews to any extent as long as no Jew marries a Jewess. That is how he could build up a strong, solid German people.”

And by the way, he wasn’t just a fan of Hitler, George Bernard Shaw had a solid man crush on Stalin. He visited Russia and wrote:

FS CUTE TEAROUT RUSSIA

“There is not a more interesting country in the world today to visit than Soviet Russia, and I find traveling there perfectly safe and pleasant…Tomorrow I leave this land of hope and return to our Western countries of despair.”

He even recounted how generously he was fed by his hosts saying, “Starvation? Why, I’ve never eaten so wonderfully!” Mind you, his visit was during Stalin’s great famine when millions were dying of hunger.

Let’s not forget George Bernard Shaw’s love for another great Dictator: Mussolini! Shaw was such a fan he could imitate the dictator on the spot. You gotta watch his Mussolini impersonation:

He loved these despicable dictators because he thought they had the right ideas.

FS TEAROUT DICTATORS

I would agree with George, that yes, they do, do things. They killed people. I’m pretty sure that’s what he liked about them.

George Bernard Shaw sure did hate people, but he loved animals! He was a staunch vegetarian.

He is often quoted by PETA as saying:

FS-GBS-PIN-KITTY

“The worst sin towards our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them. That is the essence of inhumanity.”

Someone even published a George Bernard Shaw Vegetarian cookbook. Bizarre.

I’m wondering if you were to make a stew out of the people he wanted to humanely kill, would that be vegetarian? As long as you don’t use beef broth, you should be ok.

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."

Glenn Beck has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just to have everyone look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China … the list goes on, but no consequences are paid. Now, the media have called the election for Joe Biden and insist no one can question it. But for many of the more than 71 million people who voted for President Trump, our search for the truth isn't over yet.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn called out the left's long list of alleged corruption that has gone unchecked and stressed that Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process of investigating the multiple allegations of election fraud to ensure our voting systems are fair.

"I don't know about you, but I'm tired. I am worn out. I am fed up!" Glenn said during his opening monologue. "I've had enough. I am tired of exposing corruption, doing our homework, even going overseas and having documents translated to make sure they're exactly right, [and] presenting the evidence ... except, once we expose it, nothing happens. Nobody goes to jail. Nobody pays for a damn thing any more!"

While the mainstream media has called the election for Joe Biden, Glenn gives a rallying cry to conservatives. Many of the over 71 million people who voted for President Trump are split between frustration and an urge to do something. The multiple allegations of election fraud are largely out of our hands, and Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process to ensure our voting systems are fair.

But that doesn't mean we have to sit on our hands. There is an urgent need to focus on the ongoing Senate races. Glenn has warned us of the Left's radical plans should they sweep this election, and the wolves are already descending on Georgia.

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn reveals the desperate measures they're taking to win two Georgia runoff races in January and claim the Senate. Senator Mike Lee joins to warn what will happen to the country if Chuck Schumer becomes Senate majority leader and why we must have a transparent process so that Americans can trust the final count.

Later, Glenn reveals a new project for Americans who are not ready to roll over and let the Marxists win the battle for our country.
