Glenn tries to justify his bizarre diet

So Glenn has been on this crazy hippie diet for a few weeks, all as part of an effort to improve his health. But on radio this morning, Glenn went through great lengths to justify his highly unusual food choices.

"This is ridiculous. People have written to me with all kinds of suggestions on what I should do on my diet and everything else, and we were having an argument this morning about, you know, Michelle Obama and getting healthy and everything else and then it started into genetic food modification and I mean, we ‑‑ it was a tough morning.  By 8:00 we had already debated the pros and cons of genetic food modification," Glenn said.

"Pat and I are both of the feeling that, you know, we are doing great damage to ourselves, to our planet long term by modifying our food."

"Stu brought up the point that because we have genetically modified food, we can grow more food for people. The counterpoint is it takes more to feed them because the nutrients aren't there," Glenn said.

"I would tend to disagree with almost everything you just said," Stu said.

"No, here's the thing.  We were having this conversation and then Julie, my assistant, brought in my one lemonade that I can have a day," Glenn countered.

"Now, I want to show you.  I brought it in and I said, oh, thank you.  And I said, could you take it around?  Could we rent a limo for this lemonade and take it around town before I consume it?  Because it really should be treated with care and be ‑‑ I mean, I shouldn't just drink it.  I should show it a good time first. Two glasses are $12," Glenn said.

"Unless you're a farmer, unless you're growing it all yourself, no human being can have truly organic food.  Because I know I'm getting scammed on some $5,000 piece of lettuce," Glenn joked about the outrageous price of true organic food.

"The best job with this is Penn and Teller on one of their shows.  They did organic food and they did a scam on green conventions where everyone was talking organic and they put two tomatoes and they had a taste test, one was organic, one wasn't.  And they labeled them incorrectly.  So every single person comes up and they are just like, oh, this organic one is so fresh, it tastes delicious.  And, of course, that was the regular one and they are like, this one, oh, this just has no taste.  It's totally bland and, of course, that was the organic one.  Then they did one where they actually cut the same banana in half and put half of it labeled as organic and half of it labeled as nonorganic and everyone chose the organic one again.  99% of that is just in your head."

"I have a good friend Ed who is in the restaurant business, he calls the organic thing a total scam.  But I don't think there's anything wrong with trying to be more natural," Pat said,

"But don't get sucked into this thing that what you're buying at the grocery store.  Because what you're buying at the grocery store, believe me when they said you've got to eat organic, Tania said, well, we do a lot of that already.  We have organic this and organic that.  No, no.  No, we don't.  You can't ‑‑ if you really have to get rid of all the toxins and everything else, you can't do it," Glenn said of the cost of organic food.

And here's Glenn being sad:

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.
