Glenn: 2012 gives America a chance to accomplish another historic milestone

On radio Wednesday morning, Glenn read a story about Spike Lee claiming that Romney's Mormonism will ultimately cost him the election. Glenn, however, disagreed. If America was able to overcome past prejudices to elect the first black President in Barack Obama four years ago, does it mean that a man's religion is an impediment among the American people? Could it be that Spike Lee doesn't have a high enough opinion of his fellow Americans?

Glenn said, "Here's the thing I would like to point out: We have had witch trials before and we got past it. We got past religious bigotry of the witch trials. We've had hatred of classes of people. We were afraid of the Indians. We're past that."

"We used to hate the Irish because they were potato‑eaters. They were drunkards, you know. We hated the Irish. We're past that. We used to think that all Italians were in the mob. We don't think that anymore. We used to think that it was okay to enslave an African‑American. We don't think that anymore."

Glenn continued that other religious and ethnic minorities have been the victims of similar bigotry, but Americans have always moved past it.

"Thomas Jefferson was right: The people are going to screw it up from time to time, but in the end they will get it right. We got it wrong on slavery, but in the end we get it right. We get it right in the end. We always do. Trust the people. Our time as a country hating people because of skin color and descent or religion is over," Glenn said.

Glenn then shifted gears to focus on more recent history, specifically the 2008 election and Barack Obama becoming the first black President.

"You know in 2008 we were excited to break a historic barrier. We were. We were excited," he said.

" It was a big deal to elect the first black president. I remember the broadcast the next morning, I was feeling pretty low because I knew what was coming. I knew this was real trouble. But I also said it is really cool that we've just elected a black man. How great is that?"

"But it was made into a bigger deal than it actually was for most Americans, by the media. Because the media had an agenda. They helped usher Obama in. They made it into a bigger deal."

But in 2012, America has an opportunity to pass a similar milestone with the election of Mitt Romney, whose Mormonism is still a subject of bigotry both today and in American history.

"Wouldn't it be just as historic to elect a man who's from a faith that was actually chased out of the country in the 1800s, whose founder was killed because of his anti‑slavery views and the fact that politically they were saying that if the next president in his day wanted to win, they might have to make Smith his VP because he controlled so much of Illinois. Wouldn't it be just as historic for the people who have the only, the only extermination order in U.S. history, the only one that said you can kill them because of their faith, no other faith has had that in America, thank God. Wouldn't it be just as historic to then elect this guy?"

Glenn's answer? "Kinda."

"It's a cool milestone, and it is a footnote," he explained. "Historic? Yes. In the academic sort of way."

"I believe in the real America. America took the signs down. We didn't hang a "no blacks" sign on the door of the Oval Office. We didn't hang a "no Jews" sign on the office. We didn't hang a 'no Mormons' sign on the office. It was the left and the media that hung those signs there. We've taken those signs down one by one over a long period of time and with a lot of blood, sweat and tears. Most Americans at least my age and lower judge people by the content of their character, not the color of their skin or religious background."

Nevertheless, Glenn pointed out that 18% of people said they would not vote for a Mormon, but only 4% of Americans would not vote for an African American.

"But it's no big deal really because we'll get it right in time. If it's not Mitt Romney, it will be somebody else. We've already elected ‑‑ is this really a big deal? We've already elected Orrin Hatch, we've already elected Harry Reid. It's only a big deal if he's a conservative," Glenn continued.

"Think about this: Wouldn't it be something to show the rest of the world as they are now announcing in Egypt that under Sharia law they are going to have to get rid of the great pyramids of Giza.," he said. "As the world is wrestling with neo‑Nazis who are now killing people because they're immigrants or because they're a different race, color, creed, the world has the rise of neo‑Nazis. The world has the rise of Sharia law which will erase every other religion."

"Look at America. We just elected somebody of a different color and it was really no big deal, for most Americans. And we'll elect somebody based on their values and their principles, not their religion. Wow."

"What a historic election 2012 will be. Two different stereotypes shot down one after another. You see, what the media doesn't understand is Americans are great people, and maybe the elites and the elites in the media, the elites in Washington, the elites in academia will surprise us someday and stop being surprised by Americans and their decency. Maybe someday the self‑entitled enlightened in the press will catch us, us God‑fearing, gun‑toting flyover hicks, and they'll understand that we've always voted for people of character, we voted for values, we believe in principles, and we believe in the facts. That's what we do in the end. It's what makes America great. It's what makes America exceptional. Other places may not vote for a Mormon. Other places may not vote for a black man. Other places may not vote for a white man. Other places may not vote for somebody with a funny name."

"In the hand of the Statue of Liberty is a torch, but that's not what it's called. What she's holding in her hand is imprisoned lightning. The power of lightning captured with liberty... and justice... for all."

Anyone paying attention can see that President Biden is in dire straights come 2024, regardless of who his opponent may be. His administration has been workshopping several ideas to try and craft just the right message. One that will cut through all the noise (failures) and put him on a more solid footing should he go head-to-head in a rematch with the former President.

Biden called in the big guns and he wasn't afraid to call in a few favors either. He drew on his stint as VP and called Anita Dunn out of the bullpen and tapped the Center for American Progress Action Fund to try and help pull this one out. After an exhaustive six-month-long study into how President Trump was able to summon the magic of MAGA — they finally feel they have the winning message.

Dunn has gotten sloppy, however, since her days in the Obama administration. We obtained her contemporaneous notes and emails showing how they coined the term "ultra-MAGA," trying to get a little "extra pop" to his rhetoric. The leaked emails also show the evolution of the messaging over that same six-month period.


[The preceding Memo was a parody written by MRA writers Josh Jennings and Jon Boldt – not the Biden administration.]

Almost every week, new incriminating evidence is mined from Hunter’s wild laptop. And the proof is mounting that President Joe Biden is lying about his knowledge of his family’s crooked deal-making. Everyone knows Hunter Biden is a seriously degenerate guy. Anyone who has handled his infamous laptop needs a tetanus shot.

The salacious stuff on the laptop is sad and pathetic for sure, but that stuff is NOT what is most relevant to the United States. Glenn Beck exposes how the laptop is REALLY about Joe Biden, his abuse of power as vice president, and his ongoing denials now as president.

Now that the 2020 election has passed and their man is in office, the mainstream media have suddenly decided to admit Hunter’s laptop is not Russian disinformation after all. No one has done more research into the Biden family corruption than journalist and best-selling author Peter Schweizer. He has researched the depths of Hunter’s laptop and found more than racy photos. “These aren’t HUNTER’S business deals,” Peter says, “they benefit the WHOLE family.” And he has the emails to prove it.

But the mainstream media still insist President Biden is as pure as his thinning white hair in all of this. As Glenn reveals tonight, he is not. But will anyone in the Biden family see jail time? Americans are fed up with two sets of rules – one for regular citizens and one for the ruling elites.

Intelligent people know that wokerness plagues society and must be ridiculed and eradicated from conversations. But what happens when people lose their jobs for calling out the absurdity of woke ideology? What happens when corporations and media sources weaponize wokeness?

Here are five videos that will help us better understand a few of the many issues that wokeness inflicts on society and how we can stand against it.

Bye bye, Target. You crossed the line!

In this clip, BlazeTV host Allie Stuckey of "Relatable" explains how Target recently announced the sale of chest binders and "packing underwear" for women. She expresses how children can be negatively impacted by the sale of confusing clothing items for people suffering from gender dysphoria and the importance of loving the body God gave us.

Today, Allie notices that Target's stock experienced a 35-year record drop. Apparel was named as one of the two underperforming departments. Was pushback from critics of gender-affirming apparel the cause? It is hard to tell, but Allie encourages her audience to continue speaking out when corporations cross the line by making harmful products available for sale to the public.

Wokeness can get you fired

In this clip, Stu Burguiere covers a story about a man who challenged Black Lives Matter using nothing but data and was fired.

Here's the story: "I had been at Thomson Reuters for over six years—most recently, leading a team of data scientists applying new machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms to our legal, tax and news data. We advised any number of divisions inside the company, including Westlaw, an online legal research service used by most every law firm in the country, and the newsroom, which reaches an audience of one billion every day around the globe. I briefed the Chief Technology Officer regularly. My total annual compensation package exceeded $350,000." Read more

Coca-Cola circumvents Constitution with TERRIFYING mandates on diversity

Glenn Beck loves Coca-Cola. So much so, in fact, that he refuses to drink Pepsi if Coke isn't available. But ... he says the time has come for him to give up his favorite soda. Why? Because Coca-Cola just announced some terrifying new company policies on diversity and equity. It sent out notices to all partnered law firms, demanding a required percentage of diverse attorneys on any legal team working for the corporation. The notice says all legal teams also must report these numbers quarterly and they will lose Coca-Cola's business if they do not comply.

"Equity is not the same thing as equality," Glenn said, adding that equality means we all have an equal chance, while equality means we all have the same outcome.

Glenn explains how mandates like this could affect everybody — even the guy working on the factory line or the truck driver delivering the drinks. Glenn also explains how Coke's new move is nothing less than a circumvention of the Constitution, and he predicts more companies (especially those in support of the Great Reset) will follow with similar policies, too.

Coca-Cola takes a 'pause' on woke initiatives after after pressure from the Right

Glenn followed up on a story about Coca-Cola becoming the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appeared to shift directions.

Calvin Klein's gender blender ruins sex and Mothers' Day

Chad Prather reflected back to the Great Depression era of enticing photographic entertainment, otherwise known as the callow and deprived years of his youth, when a Calvin Klein pictorial of old would have represented something exciting, something to, say, think about at the end of the day. Had he run across this present weird concept at that age, he would have either been disgusted on sight … or possibly really disgusted when his dumb a** put two and two together the next day. Anyway, his point is: Has the whole world gone crazy? Do we really need this? At this inclusive embracing point in our recent history, what in the world makes Calvin Klein feel the need to be the standard-bearer for a lifestyle screamed largely into existence by a very vocal minority?

Former Disney artist SPEAKS OUT: ‘It’s time to do something’

A former Disney artist, who wishes to remain anonymous, joins Glenn to describe WHY he recently took action against his former employer: ‘I'm tired of watching my country go down the drain. And it's time to do something.’ Today’s woke Disney is not what Walt once imagined, he says, and his recent video release — "It’s A Woke World After All" — exposes Disney’s large stray from its roots ...

Rolling Stone magazine on Sunday published an article that argued in no uncertain terms that the suspect who grotesquely took the lives of ten people in Buffalo, New York, last weekend was a "mainstream Republican."

Like so many in the corporate media, the article's author Talia Lavin — who in 2018 resigned from the New Yorker after falsely accusing a combat-wounded veteran and ICE agent of having a Nazi tattoo — has painted the Buffalo killer as a right-wing, white supremacist, Tucker Carlson-worshipping conservative who is "gripped by a racist delusion."

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck revealed what the killer actually wrote in his alleged "manifesto," which proves he was far from a freedom-loving constitutionalist, and explained why blatantly ignoring his words will only make the problem worse.

"The corporate media has, from the very get-go, tried to associate [the killer] with the Republicans, to say that he's a conservative, to say that he got all of his training from Tucker Carlson," Glenn began. "But you know it's weird, in the 180-page document authored by the shooter, he doesn't mention Tucker Carlson — not even once. Not at all. There is one mention of Fox News, and it's an infographic showing the top Fox News host, such as Maria Bartiromo and Greg Gutfeld, as being Jewish. He also says Rupert Murdoch is a Christian Zionist who may have Jewish ancestry though it's never been publicly admitted," he continued.

"Oh, another thing. Ben Shapiro is mentioned multiple times, including as an example as the 'rat of the Jewish people.' So gosh, that doesn't sound conservative to me, doesn't sound Republican, doesn't sound like he's learned anything from anybody that is on the right. Moreover, he has described himself as an ethno-nationalist and eco-fascist national socialist. He loathes libertarianism and conservatism in particular."

Watch the video clip below to hear more of the criminal's own words, which prove he was no right-winger and certainly NOT a "mainstream Republican."
