What’s Ann Coulter think of the RNC so far?

This morning on radio, Glenn was joined by one of the smart women in the media, the one and only Ann Coulter.

Ann Coulter, who was a Romney supporter during the primaries, and like most women in America today, had nothing but great things to say about his new running mate this morning

"Ryan was unbelievably great," she said. "Apparently you can criticize the current president without looking mean."

Ryan's speech last night was unlike any candidate had been able to deliver in that forum. He was able to rally the crowd behind Mitt Romney, criticize the president's leadership (or lack thereof), and provide and message of clear change - all while managing to look young, determined and optimistic.

"That was a flawless presentation," Glenn said of Paul Ryan's speech. "That was just a flawless speech. And he didn't seem nervous. At one point he just took a deep breath and stood there for a second and just exhaled and I thought, that's confidence, not arrogance. That's just confidence. He's comfortable in that space."

Ann agreed - she also had positive things to say about Ann Romney's speech and has high expectations for Mitt's speech this evening.

"I am laying bets with my friends that they are going to turn to me and say, "Wow, that was a really good speech." I've noticed that has been happening throughout this campaign, that the first time someone sees Romney give a full speech like after Iowa, after New Hampshire - the first time they actually listen to him give a speech, they always say, "Wow, I wish he always gave speeches like that." Well, he does always give speeches like that," she said.

As for what Mitt Romney needs to say tonight, Ann believes he's going to need to give a speech that isn't just appealing to the base. It needs to be something that is going to inspire people because it's inspiring, not just inspiring to Republicans.

Contrasting it to Chris Christie's speech, which Coulter was not a fan of. She didn't think he used his humor enough or was critical enough of Obama.

"I don't think he even mentioned Obama," Ann said.

Which he didn't, but that's why Glenn said he believed people outside of the political world liked the speech.

"I think the American public is so tired of having this debate. What I think Romney has to do tonight is just stand up and convince the American people he has a plan, he's an adult, he'll do it, and it will work," Glenn responded. "That's it."

Now that Ann agreed with. And that's what she believed Mike Huckabee and Paul Ryan did such a good job of last night. They were able to explain to the American people what a Romney/Ryan presidency will do to help the American people get back to work and help put the country back on a path of success and leadership.

However, Romney's strength is not bragging about himself, Ann explained.

"It's a virtue in a human being but perhaps a deficiency in a candidate: Romney absolutely will not brag about himself. And he's got a lot to brag about," She said. "He really does have a Midas Touch, as you say from the Olympics to all of these companies and he just, he's calm and as you say, adult like and he will take charge and I think he is just what the country needs right now. But we're the ones who have to say it about him. So your plan for him I think is very good."

Glenn shifted the conversation back to Huckabee's speech, which Ann had mentioned, she thought, was good. There is a widely-known relationship between Romney and Huckabee that most wouldn't describe as very friendly since critical comments Huckabee has made about Romney's Mormon faith.

During his speech last night Huckabee danced around the topic of Mitt Romney's faith and used the example of Catholicism to make his point that they're men of faith, which Glenn described as opening a door to show people what's inside, but not taking a step in. He went as far as he seemed to be willing to go.

"That was part of the reason I thought it was very strong, and he was winsome, as he usually is last night," she explained. And on the Catholic thing, I think to use an MSNBC expression, I think that was a dog whistle, i.e., it's an example that, you know, he's an evangelical but we're all Christians…"

Stu shifted the conversation back to the campaign, where he feel like there are finally two strong leaders on the ticket.

"We finally have two guys on the ticket with no weak points that are able to articulate these points," he said.

"It does feel like a first," Glenn added.

"I could not agree more," Coulter responded. "For one thing to have two articulate Republicans. We have two attractive, articulate Republicans with, forget skeletons. They don't even have closets. And they have, as you say, exactly the skills this country needs right now."

Ann's new book called Mugged comes out on September 25th.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
