Freak Jury: Should Stu & Pat read the book that made Glenn cry for months?

This morning on radio Glenn updated listeners to some disturbing news from the elections in Greece, which showed a rising vote in the Nazi and Communist parties. This ultimately led to Glenn urging listeners to read In The Garden of Beasts, a book that explains the role the media played in the Holocaust.

It’s also the book that had him crying through most of last summer …not to mention the author of the book became suicidal while writing it.

Given that reputation, who can blame Stu or Pat for not wanting to read this book? Glenn has told them all about the book, so why should they have to read it? Glenn says he needs a “different perspective” on the book.

So, should Stu and Pat have to read In The Garden of Beasts? Glenn called a ‘Freak Jury’ to let 12 random callers from the audience decide.

Pat warned the audience as they began to call in that voting ‘yes’ ran the risk of squeezing all entertainment value right out of the program.

First Glenn polled the Feed (the real time chat room on GBTV for listeners/watchers of the radio show). Votes on the Feed didn’t go well for Stu and Pat. “It was 92 to 8 according to the feed,” Pat reported.

Stu again tried to remind listeners, “Don’t think about what it does to us, because I know you want to torture us with awful reading.”

“Think about what it does to you,” Pat added.

Calls quickly started pouring in. First from Scott in Florida who said, “yeah, I definitely think they should have to read it.”

One down, plus the feed – things were not looking good for Stu and Pat, Dwayne in Arizona provided some hope with his vote. He said they should absolutely not be forced to read the book.

Here is how the votes came in:

Scott – Yes

Dwayne – No

Keith – Yes

Ian – Yes

Jeff – No

Carla – Yes

Debbie – Yes

Ron – Yes

James – No

Jim (FL) – Yes

Jim (MA) – No

Randy – Yes

Things didn’t go well for Pat and Stu, 8 said yes, they should read the book, and only 4 said no, they should not have to read it.

“It’s over,” Stu said. “The winner here of the poll is yes, I support genocide of entertainment value. They want us to kill the show. Maybe we need to put it out of its misery. It’s been around for a long time – let’s just kill it off.”

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
