Right Wing Watch does “selective editing” smear job on Glenn Beck

To those who follow such things, you might say, “so what else is new”. Even so, it is worth reporting because it is an excellent example of attitude change propaganda mass media theory and it demonstrates how far some people will go to propagate a lie.

The video below from Right Wing Watch shows Glenn Beck talking about two different subjects and then splices them together to create the false narrative/claim against Beck, namely that he is warning that Obama is going to round up conservatives and put them into camps. The splice happens at 1:07 into the video.

At the beginning of the video Beck accurately explains historical examples of when those in power demonize people so as to make them two dimensional and easier to persecute. At the 1:07 mark the video cuts to Beck speculating on how he thinks Obama might react to mass critique if the elite media turned on him. By linking these two clips together using careful editing they have gullible people believing something that Beck simply did not say or intend to say.

The ruse by Right Wing Watch is further given away in the clip they used as Beck can be seen clearly stating that both sides in a conflict often use such demonization techniques.

This is the kind of dishonest shenanigan that “People for the American Way” and “Media Matters” have been caught doing from time to time. Alec Baldwin sits on the board for the group if that is an indication oh how off the rails they can get.

Here is an example where Media Matters was caught red handed doing the same – LINK.

Glenn Beck does three hours of broadcasting a day, so if someone disagrees with him there is room to do it legitimately without resorting to dishonest editing tricks.

Glenn Beck posts the entire audio of his show on his web site and on SoundCloud every day. Anyone can download the entire show and listen for themselves as there is no sign up or membership fee.

Glenn Beck Warns Obama Is About To Snap, Will Start Putting Conservatives Into Internment Camps

On his radio broadcast today, Glenn Beck warned that too many crises are piling up all at the same time which will cause the press to finally turn on President Obama. That, in turn, will cause Obama to finally snap and start rounding up conservatives and putting them into camps.

Just as German society demonized Jews for years before the Nazis took power, Beck warned that this nation “has been watering some seeds” for nearly ten years to condition Americans to accept that “there are those enemies of the president that need to be punished.”

Once the press turns on Obama, Beck warned, he “is not going to react well” because he has been coddled his entire life and was always treated like a god who was never to be criticized or questioned.

Saying that Obama is like a spoiled child who is about to be told that he doesn’t get a trophy just for participating, Beck predicted that Obama would respond by lashing out furiously at conservatives and putting them into internment camps.

Why Lindsey Lohan’s Romney Endorsement is the Most Important of the Year (Not Kidding)

Political Arena Editor’s Note – Let us just roll up our sleeves and hunker down for a moment to chat. I am not a pop culture fan. I do not watch TV as it makes me ill, although from time to time I turn one on to remind me why I stopped watching it. I watch the TV news I must subject myself to online via streams. I do not know much about Lindsey Lohan except that she is troubled, not that bright, a bit tattered by substance abuse I suspect, and is the butt of comedian Jeff Dunham’s jokes, but in spite of that has a certain appeal and people flock to see her.

Lohan is a low informed voter, like so many who vote some for the right reasons and some for the wrong reasons. She is likely a typical young troubled girl who is a product of declining pop culture; in other words she is like almost half of the voters out there. If there can be one girl who is the poster child for uninformed, messed up American culture this young lady is it…and yet look at what she has to say…it is spot on.

Business Insider:

Lindsay Lohan came out in support of Mitt Romney yesterday.Lindsay Lohan

While most would, at first glance, write this off as gossip, it’s the latest instance of an evolving trend that jeopardizes President Obama’s chance at winning the White House.

Lohan, by all accounts, is a typical low-information voter. And low information voters, like it or not, will decide this election.

These people don’t follow politics, don’t understand the issues with depth, and plan to vote based on what little information they’ve gleaned.

Wrestler Hulk Hogan has backed Romney because he wants someone to “just take the lead and run.” Lohan said that the reason she was voting Romney was “employment.” From The Blaze:

“I just think employment is really important right now,” the troubled star told E!, while at Mr. Pink’s Ginseng Drink event in Beverly Hills, California, on Thursday. “So, as of now, Mitt Romney. As of now.”

Here’s why the Obama campaign should be worried.

Lohan is a low information voter convinced that (a) employment is really important, (b) thinks that employment is not being sufficiently handled by the White House right now and (c) thinks that Mitt Romney is better equipped to handle employment.

That arguably logical sequence is all that it takes for a low-information voter to support Mitt Romney.  The thing is, there are millions of voters like her. That should terrify the Obama campaign.

Touching story reveals the character of Mitt Romney (video).

Now that we are back from vacation, it is amazing what a busy news cycle the last two weeks have been. Usually August is a slow time news wise and since the conventions are so scripted we did not expect much news to come from them; boy were we wrong. We have much to catch up on, including an interesting book review to publish, so stay tuned over the next week or so as we catch up on things and hopefully we can offer some new insights of the news of the last two weeks and today.

We will start with this touching story of a man who runs a charity for homeless veterans. He had a run in with Mitt Romney back in 1994 and… well just watch.

Glenn Beck’s Double Standard About Newt Gingrich

by Political Arena Editor Chuck Norton

As we have all seen in the elite media by some in the chattering class, the long knives are out for Newt Gingrich. Every time he has ever thought out loud it will be used against him and taken out of context. The “establishment” types are in a panic because they are afraid that Newt will shake things up as he did when he helped balance the budget and pass welfare reform.

“Put ourselves in a room and balance the budget by force of will; lock the experts out.” – Newt Gingrich

As for Glenn Beck the former liberal and alcoholic.

Newt is not the same man that he used to be.

I saw him on Sean Hannity some time ago. Newt said that he had come to realize that his old friends in academia, like this crew in the White House, are as big a threat to the United States as the Soviet Union ever was. Because, as Newt told Sean, “If these people are allowed to get their way this country will look nothing like the one we grew up in.”

Ever since that time Newt has had a moral clarity that I personally find to be astonishing. Newt is not the only one to become more accurate and conservative with age. He wrote a book about rediscovering his faith and has made films about President Reagan and Pope JP II’s efforts to fight communism.

Rick Perry, Ronald Reagan, Michelle Bachmann, Ron Silver, Chris Hitchens, Star Parker and yes even Glenn Beck all used to be Democrats and/or leftists. Heck, even Erskine Bowles embraced free market economics. He said it had something to do with him becoming a grandfather.

Glenn Beck is no longer a liberal neo-secularist and is no longer an alcoholic. So why can Glenn Beck can have a spiritual and philosophical awakening and Newt Gingrich cannot?

Glenn Beck ‘s Indepth and Tough Interview with Newt Gingrich

Anyone who says that Glenn Beck is not a serious political force is made into a liar by this interview. This is the toughest and most substantive interview I have ever seen Newt faced with and it is worth examining.

There is no one in the elite media capable of offering an interview this substantive and informative.



“The Forgotten Depression” and How Presidents Coolidge & Harding Turned America Around.

With Glenn Beck, Reagan Budget Advisor Art Laffer, and Chris Edwards from the CATO Institute.

This is very interesting. Why is it that the second biggest domestic economic depression on record is scrubbed from our history books, including many economic texts? What made the Roaring 20’s Roar? And what President’s enacted policy saw an even faster economic turn around than Reagan’s?
