Megyn Kelly just might get virtue signaled right off TV

We're less than a week from Halloween, so you know what that means: It's time for the Cultural Appropriation Police to scour every Halloween party for culturally insensitive costumes and micro-aggressions. After all, what would a holiday gathering be without the constant politicization of every single action of every single person in attendance.

We've even gotten a nice preview of the outrage this year, with all the tantrums that NBC News' Megyn Kelly caused with an, admittedly tone-deaf but overall harmless opinion on "Megyn Kelly Today," during what should have been a civil conversation between four adults. Here's the clip:


Megyn Kelly Apologizes For Blackface Comments: ‘I Was Wrong, And I Am Sorry’ | Megyn Kelly TODAY youtu.be


Melissa Rivers was the virtue-signaling in this segment. If only Megyn Kelly had towed the line and beat her chest with outrage.

Even Al Roker got steamed up about it:

The fact is, while she apologized to the staff, she owes a bigger apology to folks of color around the country. This is a history, going right back to the 1830s minstrel shows to demean and denigrate a race. It wasn't right.
I want to begin with two words, I'm sorry. The country feels so divided and I have no wish to add to that pain and offense. I believe this is a time for more understanding, more love, more sensitivity and honor. Thank you for listening and for helping me listen too.

Apologies do no good anymore. We're in the throes of cultural lawlessness, where executions are on-demand and context or common sense don't matter. Guess what happens next? She's probably going to lose her job, that's what all the signs seem to indicate.

NBC News Chairman Andy Lack released a statement following Kelly's comments:

There is no other way to put this, but I condemn those remarks. There is no place on our air or in this workplace for them. Very unfortunate.

What's unfortunate is that America has devolved into a country of over-sensitive babies who take offence at the slightest thing. Yes, Megyn Kelly ought to know that blackface is awful, that it is no longer acceptable, and that most people agree that any costume that purposely ridicules an entire race, as blackface has historically done, probably isn't kosher. But notice here what Kelly is getting in trouble, and possibly fired for: Words. It's not like she showed up to the set in blackface. She just asked why that particular example is racist.

The criteria for wrongdoing are narrowing to barely nothing. It's ridiculous how similar it is to the thoughtcrimes that Orwell wrote about in 1984.

Here's a passage, in which the main character, Winston Smith, is training himself to avoid thoughtcrimes:

The mind should develop a blind spot whenever a dangerous thought presented itself. The process should be automatic, instinctive. Crimestop, they called it in Newspeak. He set to work to exercise himself in crimestop. He presented himself with propositions—'the Party says the earth is flat', 'the party says that ice is heavier than water'—and trained himself in not seeing or not understanding the arguments that contradicted them.

Here's another:

If you made unexpected movements they yelled at you from the telescreen.

Swap "telescreen" with "Twitter" and you've got the reality of our current situation. And I don't want to ruin 1984 for you, but let me just say that it's not the kind of world we want to end up in.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:

Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg has surged in the polls in the past month.

With former Vice President Joe Biden dropping below far-left presidential candidates such as the unapologetically socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), and the almost equally extremist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass), Democratic voters seeking a more moderate alternative are setting their sights on Mayor Pete.

But are Buttigieg's policies actually moderate? Not even close, Glenn Beck said Thursday on the radio program.

"[Pete Buttigieg] wants people to see him as a moderate. The mayor of a Midwest city in a red state ... and he's going for the middle, even though he is not a moderate candidate in any way," said Glenn.

Here are just a few example of where Buttigieg stands on the issues:

  • Supports late-term, partial-birth abortion
  • Eliminate the Electoral College
  • Buyback program for assault weapons
  • Raise the federal minimum wage to $15/hour
  • Expand Medicare
  • Decriminalize illegal immigration
  • Pay for infrastructure through changing taxes on corporations, the wealthy
  • Study reparations
  • Legalize marijuana
  • Increase existing taxes on upper-income Americans
  • Cancel some student debt
  • Don't use tariffs to pressure countries

An official at the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations' health agency, has issued a warning, calling the coronavirus "the worst enemy you can imagine" and more of a threat than "any terrorist attack," during a media briefing on Tuesday.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO's director general, said that a vaccine for the coronavirus will likely take 18 months to develop. The virus has reportedly killed hundreds and infected tens of thousands of people, primarily in China.

"To be honest, a virus is more powerful in creating political, social and economic upheaval than any terrorist attack. It's the worst enemy you can imagine," added Ghebreyesus.

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck noted that the same agency in charge of developing this life-saving vaccine, has taken the time to officially change the disease's name to COVID-19, citing the concern of "stigmatizing" any specific geographical location, individual, or group of people.
