Vintage Beck: He Defends Himself Defending Sherrod (Video)
Glenn Beck ^ | 7/21/10 | Glenn Beck

Posted on 07/21/2010 5:41:47 PM PDT by careyb

He starts by saying, "The White House called and said I might be on my show tonight." It just gets better from there.

He was hillarious tonight. I especially enjoyed the video clip of Joe Scarborough saying “They’re afraid of the guy with the chalkboard? We are screwed!” LOL

Sometimes intense passion make one emotional.

The man loves America, and for this, I love him.

He’s pulling in the same direction as us (unlike the GOP leadership). That’s enough for me. We can sort out our doctrinal and stylistic differences later.

Love him or hate him, he gained my respect by having the only “town hall” meeting of doctors young and old to discuss the effects of Øbamacare. It was enlightening.

He is driving the left crazy (crazier) and for that I am grateful - and endlessly amused.

Good lord that was funny, spot-on and biting. It must send the liberals into apoplexy trying to figure out how to spin that kind of shameless truth telling into something else. I don’t go for Glenn’s sky-is-falling presentation most of the time, but here he hits it out of the park.

The self-loathing a liberal must feel, to be smacked with the truth and have to deny it.

I like Beck.

His tutorial about the complex “global warming” scam and the $trillions$ of dollars connected elites stood to pocket from “cap and trade” was one of the most outstanding pieces of investigative journalism I ever had the pleasure to witness. He named names.

Yeah, he can be quite a hambone sometimes, and a little full of himself at other times, but he is a great asset for our side. Kudos to Beck, and I hope he keeps getting better. He deserves all the success that’s come his way.

Great post careyb. *****

Once you are 'marked' nothing thereafter will clear your name or what some people may think about you.

Many in The Right Wing media were quick on the uptake to condemn, was not only Media Matters types on the Left and truth be told, the Right was all about protecting the southern white farmer crying "racist" ( I can point it out right on here )but the farmer and his wife were CLEARLY piss'd, surfacing and displaying with vinegar that they had been protected..ALAS, by the SAME media marked racist, Ms Sarrod, whom they considered a long time friend. WOW how can that be? Hmmmm That wasn't the way the story was supposed to go. ROLL BACK THE TAPE.

Seems the The Farmer and His Wife only needed protection from the stories coming out of THE MEDIA.

The pipe was a nice touch-and he is a little nutz, I don't think he would not dispute that. A good thing. :p

I’ve got a couple of egghead, fancy-education, professorial liberal friends. Believe me, Beck’s characature of them tonight was spot on! They think they are soooo superior to all us dummies outside the ivpry towers.

Any one of those types who tuned in tonight must have peed their pants in fury. Wait till Election Night 2012!

LOL

Why is Beck defending the racists. Even if the farmer in question didn’t lose his farm, she was bragging about discriminating against the man. The fact that she may have been lying about that just to gain the approval of the NAACP crowd doesn’t change anything. If a white police officer said, “I saw that black man being mugged and didn’t do a thing about it.” and then you then find out, he actually did stop the mugging. Is he still not a racist. Sure he is, he is just a racist who lacks the courage of his racist convictions.

“egghead, fancy-education, professorial liberal friends”.
A Conservative friend of mine pointed out that all of the men in this category are thin and have white beards/mustaches. The Lib women that I know are mountain looking women, thin again, with bushy white hair, yellow protruding teeth and no makeup.

Hannity makes snake-oil salesmen like Huckabee look honest.

Every time I hear him he comes across as a panderer and an opportunist at the highest level.

Everything about that whole “Great American” thing of his just rubs me the wrong way for some reason. I can’t really explain why.

He reminds me of Mr. Haney from Green Acres.

I’m afraid I don’t have a clue as to what you are trying to say in either this post or #11. If you were saying that she wasn’t trying to gain the approval of the NAACP, then why was she a guest speaker, pausing for applause etc.

The “Southern Friends” thing is a little too cryptic as well.

Me too. Ever since Colmes left, his show is not compelling. Loved him when he was beating Colmes which was most of the time.

I really like the face to face free form debates. Liberals really don't stand a chance when they have to defend their ideas.

She admitted that she *was* a racist. Apparently she corrected what she did at a later date which is commendable.

However, the point is that there are racist African Americans. Not that we had to be told this.... except maybe the self righteous NAACP.

...guest speakers are just that...invited to speak. She didn't invite herself. Bill Cosby was a guest speaker at a telecom equipment maker celebratory dinner which I attended, as an example.

I grew up in the North, enjoyed American history, was interested in the underground railroads, hated how the blacks were treated in the South; hated the KKK for the terror they inflicted and of course young and not well traveled thought all white Southerners were racist, lazy and hateful to blacks..so I held a prejudice. That was then, this is now.

She corrected it by finding them “one of their own kind who I knew would help them”. Sounds like she just went from being a racist who would actively harm white people because of their color to a racist who thought white people at least deserved one of their own to advocate for them.

If a Republican “tea party member” had uttered these words about a black man, it would be front page news for a month.

It didn’t sound like she was Bill Crosby entering the Lion’s Den to stake out an unpopular position and defend it. She sounded like a racist being applauded by other racists.

I grew up in the South, enjoyed American history, and hated how many Northerners would stereotype Southerners while at the same time ignoring their own history when it came to slavery, mistreatment of minorities, segregation etc. However, I never believed all Northerners of any color were like that. Even today, I don’t believe all Northerners are socialists driving a stake through the heart of the Constitution and the Republic, only some of them.

I can’t stand his voice, his laugh, the way he says “greater specificity” and “great American”, I can’t stand the way he always has a pen in his hand on his t.v . show, I can’t stand how he just reads from “pieces” and “blogs” (which he stumbles over constantly), he says “you know” too much, he has the same damn people (Newt, Dick Morris, Karl Rove, etc.) on all the time, etc. etc. etc. I have a couple of coworkers who like him and prefer to listen to him over Rush and I just can’t understand it!

Sherrod is getting apologies from media pundits who know they were wrong in firing the first shot into an angry crowd. I guess if The Farmer and His Wife are friends with Sharrod and also came to her defense as soon as all this racist BS came about by those in the media that didn't do their jobs..following Breitbart who has silently moved to island someplace??? They did not do their due diligence,O'Reilly admitted as much, blamed his staff; then took the blame as well (I knew the story why didnt't he and Hannity?) and some on FR were quick to yell racist...FR can be an angry mob in of itself not doing their DD either but from one story with corresponding blogs, a video from sources NAACP that should be suspect.

Give me a break..when the White House fires someone by seizing their Blackberi instantly and the NAACP ..think about it, there is more to the story. Oh yeah and the President lamely gives the excue he has been trying to get her since yesterday to apologize,when she of course had no communication link available. Stange it took the VIEW interview to say nothing had been heard from the President--then immediately he is on the line saying "call me Shirley"..Laughs.

(It didn’t sound like she was Bill Crosby entering the Lion’s Den to stake out an unpopular position and defend it. (that doesn't even make sense so won't respond)..

And you know what..if southerners, back then, hated the image portrayed of some of them and I will add many during those times..they deserved it. I found out later I was near an underground rr which helped blacks go to Canada.
And yes I had prejudice as a kid toward anyone from the South that was white..but times change and we become more educated, we live life; but we also KNOW in our hearts what is right and what is wrong.

And racism and prejudices toward others still exists underneath the surface, nothing unnatural about that; but is kept under control by our sense of respect toward others.

How often over the years have you heard a friend, family member, client, Navy buddy make a joke about a certain group or individual, as “she's so fat she...”, "how many _____does it take to screw in a light bulb", the 7-11 Indian/Clinton like scenario...my builder used a joke today that I would determine antisemitic..we just ignore, I don't laugh and I know the person is a decent human being..you share an uncomfortable moment..life goes on. So hypocrisy to be shocked at a few words said by another which could be misconstrued (we weren't there), considering we have not looked through the eyes of another, nor have we seen terrible injustices on families, friends etc which of course leave scars. No one is perfect. We don't reveal our lives from under a microscope.

There are poor whites and people of color across this country who live in areas never seen or visited by a politician that do not depend on government to care for them or even want it so just simply go without--their pride relinquished. Those people should be able to seek responsible care when a true need arises.

We do need health care reform..but not in the way it has been initiated and forced down our throats in order to divide Americans and build hatred toward others in doing so. I didnt vote for Obama because it was a shallow platform based on one word Change AND I disliked the whole cast of characters. But angers me that because we didnt vote for the man, we are therefore racists. That the tea party people are racists because they do not follow the Liberal,socialist agenda.

Sharrod I have no problem with, neither did the Farmer and his Wife. But Breitbart needs to come forward and clarify his opening act on the subject. I guess he can;t be reached for comment.

Yup. People are calling her Mother Teresa. She is still a racist however you spin it. Like the justification during the Clinton impeachment — he has done so much for women’s rights even though he has attached a bunch of women. Maybe even raped a women.

And you are absolutely right about if a Tea Party member did the same thing.

There is a huge double standard. Just keep pushing this truth.
