Glenn Beck

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 7/28/16

 

 

 

 

  • Glenn Beck is asking his audience to "send a letter of support to Ted Cruz, thanking him for his bravery and character" in not endorsing Donald Trump when he spoke at the GOP convention.
  • David Kyle Foster has some advice for conservative Christian parents who have gay children: "Despite what the media and all of the pride parades might have you think, no one wants to be gay! Your child did not choose to have same-sex attractions. Your children are not the enemy — Satan is." 
  • CBN's David Brody reports that "Newt Gingrich is working with lawmakers on Capitol Hill to craft a bill that would repeal the controversial Johnson Amendment."
  • Jerry Newcombe defends Ben Carson for attempting to link Hillary Clinton to Lucifer.
  • Finally, an all-caps warning from Jerry Boykin, so you know it's serious: "THE DEMOCRATS ARE IN PHILADELPHIA, MARXISM IS ON THE RISE IN AMERICA AND ISIS ARE THE WOLVES AT THE DOOR."

Glenn Beck Walked Out Of 'God's Not Dead'

Glenn Beck opened his show today by arguing that a key difference between conservatives and progressives is that conservatives make their case using facts, whereas progressives make their case using stories. Progressives, Beck claimed, always win because emotional stories are more powerful than facts for many people. 

Conservatives, he argued, must take this lesson to heart and learn to present their views using effective storytelling if they are to have any chance of turning America around and pointed to the Christian film "God's Not Dead" as a perfect example of how not to do that and, as a consequence, why conservatives keep losing.

"I know a lot of people liked 'God's Not Dead,'" Beck said. "I didn't. I don't think I've ever said this on the air. I walked out of it."

Beck said that he went to see the film with his daughter and neither could stand it because it was so poorly done and one-sided and that they walked out after 40 minutes.

"It might feel good to have a movie come out where we get to slap people across the face," he said," but that's not helpful."

'I Don't Know How He Sleeps At Night': Glenn Beck Cannot Understand Sean Hannity's Shameless Shilling For Trump

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck said that he doesn't understand what has happened to his former Fox News colleague Sean Hannity or understand how Hannity can sleep at night given his shameless shilling for Donald Trump.

Beck and his co-hosts were discussing the fact that Hannity declared that Ted Cruz "blew it" when he spoke at the GOP convention last week and refused to endorse Trump, but then called Bernie Sanders "a gutless coward" for endorsing Hillary Clinton. Beck and crew pointed out that Hannity was basically ripping Cruz for not doing the very thing that he was now ripping Sanders for doing.

"There are too few honest brokers" in the media today, said Beck's co-host, Pat Gray, pointing specifically to the likes of Hannity and Tucker Carlson as people whose positions have become utterly incoherent as a result of their support for Trump.

"I've heard the Sean Hannity" clip, Beck said, "and it is jaw-dropping. And I say this as a friend of Sean Hannity's: I don't know how he sleeps at night, I really don't."

"He's got to have some justification in his head," Beck said. "I'd like to know what the hoop is that he's jumping through because this is truly dramatic."

Glenn Beck Will Not Vote For Donald Trump Because He Doesn't Want To Answer To God

Glenn Beck spent a portion of his television program last night debating with audience members who are not very happy with his refusal to support Donald Trump, which Beck continues to insist he cannot do because voting for Trump carries eternal consequences.

To vote for either Trump or Hillary Clinton is to give his approval to genuine evil and "darkness," Beck said, and so unless God tells him otherwise, he cannot vote for Trump.

"We have to do what we feel the Lord would want us to do," Beck explained. "All I'm looking for now is to be seen in eyes of favor. Lord, I know who you are and I can't imagine standing in front of you and saying, 'But you don't understand, you weren't there.' He was there. And I don't want to say, 'I didn't have enough trust in you to hold the line on my principles' because those principles were right! Even if they were going to throw me in jail and crucify me upside down, I'm not wavering because I believe what I believe in and hopefully the Lord will recognize those who have trust in Him."

The Unforeseen Consequences Of Legalizing Gay Marriage? Glenn Beck And The Dilemma Of The Gay Bulls

While the Religious Right's dire predictions about what would happen in the wake of the Supreme Court ruling striking down anti-gay state marriage amendments last year have not come true, one possible consequence that nobody could have foreseen is now vexing Glenn Beck.

As Beck explained on his radio program today, he recently received a call from those who run his ranch in Idaho letting him know that his bull seems to have started a relationship with a bull owned by a neighbor.

Beck said that they had been forced to artificially inseminate many of the cows on his ranch because the bull that he owns has not been interested in mating with any of them and they couldn't figure out why. It turns out that a bull from a neighboring property has been escaping its pen and making its way onto Beck's property and the two bulls have now, as Beck put it, "become very close" and are regularly "enjoying each other's company."

"I don't know if they're going with the times or what," Beck quoted the person who runs his ranch as saying. "In all my years of doing this, I have never seen this before, but yes, they're [gay]."

This is creating a bit of a dilemma for Beck, who half-jokingly wondered if he is going to be sued for getting rid of this gay bull because it is not doing its job of impregnating his cows:

Glenn Beck: 'Pack Your Crap And Move To Texas ... Before We Close The Northern Border'

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck declared that America is now out of options and speeding toward inevitable destruction and advised his audience to "pack your crap and move to Texas ... before we close the northern border."

Beck raised alarms about the fact that retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn has been mentioned as possible vice presidential running mate for Donald Trump, saying that it's a sign that Trump thinks that "real civil unrest is coming and he needs to have somebody who has the experience of law and order" advising him.

"I told you these things were coming," Beck said, adding that turning to God is the nation's only option at this point but that nobody wants to hear that. 

Citing an incident in which Black Lives Matters protesters and counter-protesters in Dallas embraced one another over the weekend, Beck said it was proof that "there's still a God culture here" and so people should hurry up and move to Texas.

"I told you to move to Texas for a reason," he said, "you're seeing that. I told you when things go to hell in a hand basket, you want to be around like-minded people. You're seeing that. Look at the difference between the shooting of six cops in Dallas and what happened in Dallas and what's happening today in Dallas compared to what happened in Ferguson and Baltimore. You're losing time. Pack your crap and move to Texas ... before we close the northern border."

Glenn Beck, Who Mocked Congress For Apologizing For Slavery, Now Says America Needs Racial Reconciliation

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck declared that America still has a race problem because this nation never had any sort of reconciliation for its history of oppression of African Americans.

The civil rights movement was not enough because "we never reconciled" as a nation, Beck said, adding that we can't just stop doing bad things and then move forward as if those things never happened.

"You have to reconcile and stop and say, 'I am sorry for these things,'" Beck said, "ask for forgiveness of those you have hurt. The country never stopped and said, 'Wow, that was wrong.' Let's reach back out and say, 'Let me listen to you now' and I'll apologize, not for everything that I've done, but what you're feeling is valid and I'm sorry for any role that any of us played. I didn't play a role in that but I want to hear you out and the country needs to say, 'I'm sorry for that.'"

Back in 2008, when the House of Representatives passed a resolution apologizing for slavery and Jim Crow, Beck mocked it on his radio show and called it an affront "to the principles of Christianity."

Brad Thor: 'Black Lives Matter Ought To Be Labeled A Terrorist Organization'

Glenn Beck dedicated most of his radio broadcast today to discussing the shooting of several police officers during a peaceful Black Lives Matter rally in Dallas last night. At one point, Beck interviewed right-wing author Brad Thor, who declared that the Black Lives Matter movement must be demonized and labeled a terrorist organization in response to this attack.

Thor declared that progressives and President Obama are intentionally creating the false impression that "it's open season on young black men by cops" for the purpose of sowing division and discord. 

Most police officers are decent people who care about their communities, Thor said, but "these stories where there is a shooting get unbelievable attention."

"I think the problem here is that the progressives love to divide people because that's how they conquer the country," he declared. "They divide people, put them into victim groups or put them into groups and convince the groups they can't talk to each other; this group is set against you, this one is set against you and all that kind of stuff. So what we're seeing is the progressives have been incredibly successful in this country dividing us and that's why we need to be focused on on the truth. We need more people standing up and demonizing a group like Black Lives Matter that calls for the killing of police. At this point, I think Black Lives Matter ought to be labeled a terrorist organization."

Glenn Beck: God Sending Chaos Because 'We Still Vote For Unrighteousness'

On his television program last night, Glenn Beck was asked by an audience member what the future holds for America, which prompted Beck to reply with a long story about the time when he said that God stopped talking to him for several weeks.

As Beck told it, he had been prompted by God years before the 2008 economic crisis to warn that a collapse was coming. When Lehman Brothers collapsed but the economic catastrophe that Beck had been predicting did not immediately follow, Beck angrily lashed out at God for having ruined his reputation.

In response, God stopped talking to Beck for several weeks until Beck humbled himself and begged for forgiveness, at which point God told him to "build the framework of hope," which terrified Beck because it was a sign that "what's coming is bad."

And now that warning is coming true. 

"I think we're here," Beck said. "What's coming? Trouble. Trouble, trouble, trouble, trouble. What's coming? Consequences. God's our dad. He's told us don't do these things. He's begged us, he's given us every opportunity and we still vote for unrighteousness ...  Consequences are coming and we can't be like little children that say, 'Wait, why are you punishing us?' He's not punishing us, he's allowing the natural consequences to happen to us."

President Obama and the progressives have worked to make conservatives feel powerless, Beck said, but that is all part of God's plan to help the people who "are going to save the nation, save the world, save freedom" to realize that "God is in control and God will see us through."

Glenn Beck Says Senate Republicans Should Give Merrick Garland An Up Or Down Vote

Glenn Beck was live on the radio today when the news broke that the Supreme Court had struck down a Texas law designed to limit access to legal abortion under the guise of protecting women's health. In response to the ruling, Beck's co-host Stu Burguiere lamented that Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito are the only two reliably conservative votes on the court at the moment and noted that Donald Trump is hoping to use this issue to win over conservative voters in November.

Beck, who doesn't think that Trump really has any chance of winning in November, said that it is a mistake for the Republicans who control the Senate to keep blocking President Obama's nomination of Merrick Garland to fill the seat left by the late Antonin Scalia.

"I personally think that it is a mistake for them not to give him an up or down vote," Beck said of Garland. "I think it is a mistake. And I also think that they did this for a reason, that they put somebody in who is somewhat acceptable and they did it because they could say, 'See, they're absolutely unreasonable.' And if Hillary gets in and there is a Democratic congress or Senate? Done! You think that they're going to get more reasonable than this guy?"

"I would pull the trigger," Beck stated, "because the Constitution says give them an up or down vote. That doesn't mean you accept them; it does mean give them an up or down vote. And just take that issue away from them."

Glenn Beck: 'We're The Civil Rights Leaders Of Today,' Not Those 'Absolute Clowns' Like John Lewis

Glenn Beck was predictably unimpressed by Democratic lawmakers who launched a sit-in on the floor of the House of Representatives yesterday, demanding a vote on gun control legislation. On his radio show today, Beck blasted Rep. John Lewis, a civil rights icon who was one of the leaders of the effort, as a "clown" and declared that it is people such as himself who are the true civil rights leaders of today. 

While Lewis was once a civil rights hero, Beck said, "he has become a clown. This has made these people, these civil rights leaders, into absolute clowns."

Whereas activists like Lewis once fought to secure rights for people, Beck declared, they are now "sitting in to take people's rights away" and that is why conservatives like himself are the modern day civil rights leaders.

"Who are the civil rights leaders?" Beck asked. "I've said this for a long time and people make fun of us: We're the civil rights leaders, we're the civil rights leaders of today. They have discredited themselves and they are dismissed."

Glenn Beck: If America Will Just Humble Itself And Turn To God, 'He Will Ensure Your Survival'

On his television program last night, Glenn Beck followed up on his new theory, which he claims offers America one last hope to avoid destruction by turning back to God, by pointing to the Six-Day War, which he declared is impossible to explain without acknowledging God's direct intervention on behalf of Israel.

Pundits, historians and military analysts don't like to talk about this war, Beck said, "because this battle represents an inconvenient truth for the faithless [as] there is literally no way to describe this war if you take out one thing, and that is the power of God."

Just as God directly intervened on Israel's behalf in this war, Beck explained, so too did He intervene on America's behalf during the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812 by creating "miracle after miracle after miracle after miracle."

The point of all this, Beck said, is that if we are humble and seek God's protection, then "He will help us with survival."

"We cannot separate ourselves from the plans of heaven," he declared. "When you are humble enough to make sure you are on His side, He will intervene and if you are humble and worthy, He will ensure your survival."

By Refusing To Vote For Trump, Glenn Beck Is Standing Against 'The Entire World,' Just Like Gandhi And Nelson Mandela

Glenn Beck literally spent the first two hours of his radio program today laying out some ridiculous two-chalkboard theory that he crafted over the weekend which he thinks explains all of human history and now offers America one last option for escaping inevitable destruction.

The theory was so convoluted and nonsensical that we're not even going to bother trying to explain it, but part of it involved leaders like Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, Pope John Paul II and Church of Latter Day Saints president Ezra Taft Benson, whom Beck credited with destroying communism.

Somehow, the discussion of these leaders prompted Beck to reference a piece in Townhall today purporting to offer him a way out of his pledge never to support Donald Trump .

"Sitting at home on your moral high horse and refusing to vote is the comfortable thing to do," the column stated of Beck's refusal to vote for Trump and Beck took great offense to that ... and did so by comparing himself to Reagan and Gandhi and Nelson Mandela.

"You have got to be kidding me," Beck said. "You are clueless ... You want the hard road? You stand up when the entire world is against you. That's the hard road! That's the road that Reagan and Thatcher and John Paul took. They took the hard road. That's the road that Nelson Mandela and Gandhi and Martin Luther King took, when the entire world was against them!"

Glenn Beck's Network Has Now Been Infiltrated By Members Of A Muslim Brotherhood Front Group

Last year, Glenn Beck launched a campaign to get right-wing anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist removed from his position on the board of the National Rifle Association on the grounds that Norquist is "a very bad man" who has been serving as a spy for the Muslim Brotherhood.

Beck was so alarmed by the danger that Norquist poses to the NRA that he threatened to cancel his lifetime membership in the organization if Norquist was not removed from the board. The NRA, in response, promised to launch an investigation into the allegations against Norquist that would be fully transparent and the results of which would be published on its website.

Those results never were made public, but the investigation reportedly found that the case against Norquist was without merit and the organization declined to remove him from the board.

That prompted Beck to throw his support behind an effort to remove Norquist via a recall vote, but that too failed and Beck predictably backtracked from his threat to quit the organization if Norquist wasn't removed.

Now, instead of distancing himself from the NRA, it looks like the NRA is infiltrating Beck's own network as yesterday it was announced that The Blaze's Dana Loesch had been named as a special adviser on women's policy for the NRA:

Dana Loesch, the conservative leader and nationally syndicated radio host, will serve as a Special Advisor on Women's Policy for National Rifle Association Executive Vice President and CEO Wayne LaPierre. The move is effective immediately, LaPierre announced today.

"Dana is a talented and influential leader and communicator," LaPierre said. "In her role as an NRA Commentator, as well as leading the fight for freedom for more than a decade, she has become a leading voice for Second Amendment freedom and a tremendous advocate for the rights of American women. Expanding her role as an advisor on women's issues, and particularly as a national spokesperson for the 5 million men and women of the NRA, strengthens our organization and our voice."

Loesch said she was eager to accept the challenges of her new role. "I applaud Wayne LaPierre for his vision to bring greater advocacy to bear for the Second Amendment freedom of all Americans, especially women," Loesch said, "and I look forward to facing the national news media and defending our freedom with great enthusiasm."

A year ago, Beck declared that Norquist was such "a very bad influence and a very bad man that if this is who the NRA decides to put on their board of directors, I don't think I can be associated with them" because it was proof that the organization has been infiltrated by Islamic radicals.

To use Beck's logic, this means that the dangerously compromised NRA has now managed to reach its tentacles directly into his own network by ensnaring Loesch, one of its most high-profile and popular hosts.

Glenn Beck: 'If God Doesn't Bless Us By Destroying Us ... We Will Make Hitler Look Like Rookies'

Messianic rabbi and End Times preacher Jonathan Cahn joined Glenn Beck yesterday on both his radio program and television show to warn that America is under judgment from God and at great risk of utter destruction.

Despite the fact that Cahn's first book, "The Harbinger," was a laughable work of fiction passed off as prophecy and his second book, "The Mystery of the Shemitah," turned out to be completely wrong, Beck desperately turned to Cahn for answers because he is terrified of what lies in store for this nation.

"Satan doesn't destroy, he perverts," Beck told Cahn during his radio program. "He perverts it so it's a tool in his hand ... The United States of America is an unbelievable power and I have said for years, if we don't destroy ourselves or if God doesn't do a Tower of Babel and bless us by destroying us, Satan will pervert us and we will be the darkest nation; we will make Hitler look like rookies."

Cahn agreed and warned that America is already heading down that road, pointing to the Supreme Court's marriage equality ruling and the lighting up of the White House in rainbow colors.

"How much more can we do to provoke God?" Cahn asked. "I mean, we crossed a line."

Beck featured Cahn again on his television program last night, where he repeated his warning that America is unknowingly engaging in Baal worship, which prompted Cahn to declared that America is not only worshiping Baal, but the pagan of Ashtoreth, the god of sexual immorality, and Moloch, the god of death, as well, pointing to the false smear that Planned Parenthood has been selling fetal tissue for profit.

Glenn Beck Conveniently Forgets To Mention That Ted Cruz Cozied Up To 'Kill The Gays' Preacher

Glenn Beck kicked off his radio program today by calling on Christians to denounce Pastor Roger Jimenez, who gained notoriety this week by preaching that the real tragedy of the Orlando massacre was that more gay people weren't killed.

Beck said that this pastor is preaching "evil" and that Christians cannot remain silent about it and must repudiate such views:

During the course of the discussion, Beck mentioned that there was conference last year, possibly in Ohio, put on by some pastor who also called for gay people to be put to death at which several of the Republican presidential hopefuls spoke.

Beck was oddly vague and unsure of the exact details surrounding this conference, which is convenient considering that the man Beck believed to be God's chosen candidate, Ted Cruz, was among the featured speakers at that conference:

Beck is undoubtedly aware that Cruz spoke at Kevin Swanson's National Religious Liberties Conference in Iowa last fall, considering that Beck's daughter asked Cruz about it directly and Cruz lied to her face.

But when Beck brought up the issue today, he never once mentioned that Cruz was in attendance and falsely claimed that Swanson made his comments about putting gay people to death before any of the GOP candidates arrived, so there was no way for them to know about his views or what he said from the stage before they spoke.

Cruz, of course, was directly confronted by CNN's Jake Tapper on national television about appearing with Swanson the day before he attended his conference. Cruz dismissed any concerns and continued to do so for weeks afterwards. Then, at the conference itself, Swanson repeated his view about the death penalty for gay people both before and after he interviewed Cruz from the event's stage.

It's easy to see why Beck might be so conveniently confused about the details of this event, given that it must be hard to for him to square his image of Cruz as America's divinely anointed savior with the reality that Cruz was more than willing to appear onstage with Swanson, despite his repeated proclamations that gay people should be put to death by the government, for the sake of helping his campaign during the Iowa Republican caucus.

Glenn Beck Says Every American Should Carry A Concealed Weapon

For the last two days, Glenn Beck's main concern in the wake of the massacre in Orlando has been that the government will use the tragedy as an excuse to implement gun control when the real solution for stopping mass shootings is for every American to start carrying a gun.

"We're in this together," Beck said. "Those who claim to be responsible, step up to your responsibility; get a concealed weapons permit [and] learn how to handle your gun."

Beck said that he is very skilled with a rifle and a handgun and that if you present a threat to him or those around him, "I will kill you ... I will hit you between the eyes every single time."

"Every American should be able to say that," he declared. "Every American should be able to say, 'I am going to be part of the solution, not part of the problem.'"

"I am not going to be a lamb led to the slaughter, waiting for the police to show up," Beck stated, vowing that if somebody tried to attack a gathering at which he was present, "I'm going to shoot them before they shoot the second or third person. That's responsibility. Everybody else waits, [but] I'm not going to."

Beck then cryptically warned that Muslims from Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan and elsewhere in the Middle East are pouring across the Southern border "by the droves" and so his audience had better "get yourself a gun and carry it."

More Profound Insights From Glenn Beck: Parting The Red Sea Was 'God's Empire State Building'

Every few months, Glenn Beck gets worked up as he attempts to deliver some message that he believes contains profound insights but which ends up being little more than incoherent nonsense, as he demonstrated again on his television show last night.

After spending the entire program telling his studio audience that America is utterly doomed regardless of whether Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton becomes president, Beck tried to leave them "with a little bit of hope" by explaining that the parting of the Red Sea was "God's Empire State Building."

Just as man took things that already existed and used them to construct the Empire State Building, God took the wind and used it to part the Red Sea, Beck explained. He said that God is also capable of taking nothing and turning it into something, as He did with the atom, but both efforts require God's full attention because if He turns away, they collapse.

Similarly, Beck has been trying to build some "revolutionary" things, but they require his full attention because "when we want do to a revolution, we had better stay in all the time — go, go, go, go, go, go, go — because if you let go and you turn your face, it goes back to its natural space."

"God really helps those who are doing a revolutionary thing," Beck declared. "As long as we are putting all of our power into it, He has to be there every step of the way, putting all of His power in us as well."

Paul Blair Claims The Ancient Israelites Lived Under A Constitutional Republic

Glenn Beck dedicated much of his television program last night to interviewing Paul Blair, a radical right-wing activist who is now seeking a seat in the Oklahoma state Senate.

Blair, who was reportedly responsible for the recent legislation that sought to make it a felony to perform an abortion in the state, which was vetoed by Gov. Mary Fallin, echoed right-wing pseudo-historian David Barton when he claimed that the Bible provides guidance on how to establish elections and a constitutional republic.

"From a biblical perspective," he said, "Exodus 18 gives us the criteria by which we're supposed to evaluate candidates when Jethro, the father-in-law, said to Moses, 'Choose out from among you capable individuals that fear God, love truth and hate covetousness, teach them the law' — of course, they had a constitutional republic, quite frankly; they were 12 sovereign tribes working together as one and they weren't ruled by a king, they were ruled by the Torah, the Constitution. 'Teach them the law and have them be judges over tens, fifties, hundreds and thousands.' Quite frankly, that was the birth of republicanism, the republican form of government."

As we and others have noted before, the idea that Exodus 18 lays out the framework for voters on how to choose candidates for office is absurd as it was Moses who appointed these judges, not the people who chose them freely. On top of that, for Blair to claim that the Israelites "had a constitutional republic" is laughable considering that they were living in the desert under what was a literal theocracy that was being directly controlled by God, who ruled over them through Moses.

Religious Right activists are always insisting that they have no desire to impose any sort of theocracy on America because they deeply respect our constitutional republican form of government, but that is a little hard to swallow when they insist that an actual ancient theocracy was the ideal form of a constitutional republic. 

'We Are Living The Milgrim Experiment': Glenn Beck Blames Obama For Nasty Facebook Comments

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck declared that "we are right now living the Milgrim Experiment" and, of course, it is all President Obama's fault.

Beck was referencing the famous series of social psychology experiments done at Yale University back in the 1960s, which found that many people were willing to inflict increasingly painful punishments upon a subject simply because they were ordered to do so by someone in authority.

Today, the comments being left on Facebook show that this mentality has overtaken our entire society, Beck said, and it can all be traced directly back to Obama.

"Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, they're all, in their own ways, hammering people who disagree with them," Beck stated. "So they are setting for an example for both the left and the right, it's okay to be vile, it's okay to be uncivil. How are we living the experiment? Have you read Facebook lately? Have you read the comments section lately?"

"I contend, if you read Facebook, if you read anything, you read any comments right now, we are living the Milgrim Experiment," he continued. "We are living in a time where people will say, 'It's okay you do that.' And people in authority — Barack Obama is the first one, he's the first president; if you remember, even George Bush treated Cindy Sheehan with respect, she didn't treat him with respect but he treated her with respect. Surrogates might have said things, but the president did not, the president did not. Barack Obama was the first to say, 'You're walking around with your little tea bags.' That was the beginning of the Milgrim Experiment. Somebody in authority was saying it's okay to bash them."
