Stu Blog: Someone on the right attacks Glenn Beck! Panic!

MSNBC is able to fill its programming schedule for another day because a supposed conservative said something negative about Glenn Beck.  This time, it's someone named Peter Wehner.  (Quick note: when you're linking to Media Matters, you're not conservative.)  His column is the same yawn-inducing nonsense spouted by a couple of people at The Weekly Standard and several liberal authors that Wehner and others apparently believe are obscure enough to rip off.  The fact that they are correct about that obscurity doesn't make it any better.  We've spent endless time in Fusion Magazine and on TV and radio showing how disingenuous their arguments are, so I will not rehash them again here.

But, the complaint from Wehner is particularly amusing for a couple of reasons.  First of all, it's not news.  This same guy, wrote roughly the same story about Glenn in September 2009.  In 2011, he's saying Glenn is "dangerous" to conservatism.  In 2009, he was saying Glenn was "harmful" to conservatism.   In 2011, Glenn is about to "blow apart professionally."  In 2009, Glenn would "soon flame out."

But Wehner's lack of creativity gives us the rare opportunity to measure the value of his rhetoric.  He wrote his last story about how bad Glenn Beck was for Republicans about 17 months ago.  If I may paraphrase another figure on the right that the establishment theorized was dangerous--

Hey GOP--are you better off today, than you were 17 months ago?

Are you better off today, than you were 63 House seats ago?

Are you better off today, than you were 6 Senate seats ago?

Glenn isn't a registered Republican.  He doesn't define success by how many seats Republicans hold.  But, for those who do--how can you argue that Glenn's rise in visibility over the past couple of years has been bad for you?  I guess it's the same people who were angry about Rush Limbaugh's hand in ushering in the first Republican controlled Congress in approximately three trillion years.

And, a quick question to any media member who might actually be trying to understand this minor phenomenon, and not just write another attack piece:  Who was criticizing who first?  Is it really a story of Glenn getting super-ultra-crazy all of the sudden?  Or is it a story of a bunch of beltway Republicans, many of which have been unsuccessfully requesting meetings with Glenn for years, finally getting frustrated with his refusal to play ball and toe the party line?

Is this what inclusivity and tolerance look like? Fox News host Tomi Lahren was at a weekend brunch with her mom in Minnesota when other patrons started yelling obscenities and harassing her. After a confrontation, someone threw a drink at her, the moment captured on video for social media.

On today's show, Pat and Jeffy talked about this uncomfortable moment and why it shows that supposedly “tolerant" liberals have to resort to physical violence in response to ideas they don't like.

President Donald Trump has done a remarkable job of keeping his campaign promises so far. From pulling the US from the Iran Deal and Paris Climate Accord to moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem, the president has followed through on his campaign trail vows.

“It's quite remarkable. I don't know if anybody remembers, but I was the guy who was saying he's not gonna do any of those things," joked Glenn on “The News and Why it Matters," adding, “He has taken massive steps, massive movement or completed each of those promises … I am blown away."

Rapper Kendrick Lamar asked a fan to come onstage and sing with him, only to condemn her when she failed to censor all of the song's frequent mentions of the “n-word" while singing along.

“I am so sorry," she apologized when Lamar pointed out that she needed to “bleep" that word. “I'm used to singing it like you wrote it." She was booed at by the crowd of people, many screaming “f*** you" after her mistake.

On Tuesday's show, Pat and Jeffy watched the clip and talked about some of the Twitter reactions.

“This is ridiculous," Pat said. “The situation with this word has become so ludicrous."

What happened?

MSNBC's Katy Tur didn't bother to hide her pro-gun control bias in an interview with Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton in the wake of the Santa Fe High School killings.

What did she ask?

As Pat pointed out while sitting in for Glenn on today's show, Tur tried to “badger" Paxton into vowing that he would push for a magical fix that will make schools “100 percent safe." She found it “just wild" that the Texas attorney general couldn't promise that schools will ever be completely, totally safe.

“Can you promise kids in Texas today that they're safe to go to school?" Tur pressured Paxton.

“I don't think there's any way to say that we're ever 100 percent safe," the attorney general responded.

What solutions did the AG offer?

“We've got a long way to go," Paxton said. He listed potential solutions to improve school safety, including installing security officers and training administrators and teachers to carry a gun.

Pat's take:

“Unbelievable," Pat said on today's show. “Nobody can promise [100 percent safety]."
