Standing strong in New Orleans against debauchery and neglect

On radio today, Glenn and the crew discussed some of the cities in the country that had reputations for crime and corruption. Having criss-crossed the country for live events, tours, and speeches, Glenn was able to offer his unique insight not only on the cities, but on the citizens who thrive and do well there despite economic and societal hardships.

“Scariest city I've ever been to is New Orleans.  You know it's really strange because you go out of the city, you go out of, you know ‑‑ you go out of the main city and this may ‑‑ because I didn't get a chance to go there during the day.  I only went at night.  But you just, there's such a great feeling in New Orleans as far as the people.  They're not survivors.  They're thrivers.  They're not giving up on their city.”

“It's a beautiful city.  Just a beautiful, beautiful city.  But I saw people, like girls on the streets just strung out, you know, off of Bourbon Street and I thought, all I could see was my daughter.  All I could see were my children.  And I'm like, what are you doing?  You know, it just ‑‑ I wouldn't want to be living on the street there.  God forbid you're a girl on the street.  What happens to you?  What happens to you?  I mean, when people are passed out in the street and, you know, laying there in their own vomit, it's a little different even than, you know, some bad sections of New York.  That's just a different thing going on.”

“They're great people.  There's just, there seems to be two sides of New Orleans:  The one that will not give up, the ones who are, you know, the victors, the ones who are like, "No, and I'm not abandoning my town and we're good people" and they stand together and they're ‑‑ I mean, quite honestly you have to be a ‑‑ you have to be a different kind of American in a positive way to be living in New Orleans today.”

Glenn added that the people in New Orleans are really making an effort to reclaim the city from the debauchery and neglect that has sunk it.

“And so if you're living there and you're really trying to be a positive, man, you're a better person than I am.  It takes somebody who loves their town, who loves the history of it and isn't going to give up,” Glenn said.

The long-awaited New York Attorney General's report on the sexual harassment allegations against Gov. Andrew Cuomo is out — and it is bad for Cuomo. The Democratic AG concluded that the Governor did sexually harass multiple women during his time in office.

On Tuesday's radio program, Glenn Beck questioned is the AG's report would be enough for Democrats to condemn him and call for his resignation? This is what the #MeToo movement was started for, Glenn noted, if Gov. Cuomo doesn't resign quickly, that says a whole lot about today's Democratic Party.

Critical race theory: The education trap

The fall semester isn't far away. If you aren't prepared for that, someone else is. Predatory behavior. The most important takeaway from this piece is, whatever is happening on campuses right now is what is going to play out through the rest of society in about 30 years. We're seeing it right now with Critical Race Theory.

It started on the campus. It started in the classroom. And our children are set to be the next victims in the cultural warfare for a nightmare that seems like it will never end.

Colleges are manipulating the system.

It's a little ironic that colleges are overflowing with Marxist professors who preach the Gospel of Karl Marx in their classrooms, because academia in America is the perfect example of capitalist achievement. If anything, colleges are manipulating the system in a way that should make Marxists furious. And they hurt the people that Marxism is supposed to rescue.

Colleges are an enterprise. They are Big Business. It means nothing to them to send thousands of students into debt—not if it means the campus will get a new fountain or another office for the Diversity and Inclusion department.

They'll never admit it, but a big part of their problem is that they have put so much into the myth of progress. They can't even admit that it's a myth. Because it's useful to them.

Roger Scruton once said:

Hence the invocations of "progress", of "growth", of constant "advance" towards the goal which, however, must remain always somewhere in the future.

In reality, they don't give a damn about actual progress.

That's how they have turned academia into instruments of social engineering. They use college to change society.

Their purpose is no longer educational. It's social. They're using the classrooms to cause social change.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere were joined by Pat Gray to discuss "woke" Olympic athletes.

In this clip, the guys discussed how "bravely" some athletes are for threatening to protest the national anthem, for twerking on stage, and for showing off how woke they are.

Glenn reminded America of actual bravery at the Olympics when Jesse Owens won the gold medal at the Berlin Olympics. "He [Owens] was oppressed," Glenn said.

Political commentator Bill O'Reilly joined the Glenn Beck radio program on Friday made an important prediction about President Joe Biden's chance of reelection in 2024.

O'Reilly told Glenn that former President Donald Trump was brought down because of COVID. "if COVID had not appeared, O'Reilly stated, "he [Trump] would have won reelection."

O'Reilly went on to predict that like Trump, President Joe Biden would lose reelection because of COVID. People saw a president who could not put out an intelligent fact-based message about COVID and people will remember that," he explained.

O'Reilly later added that "Trump and Biden are one-termers because of COVID."
