Glenn brings common sense, laughs to movie theaters during "Unelectable 2012"

Editor’s note: Since this is GlennBeck.com and most of you are Glenn Beck fans (or people looking to pick a fight in the comments section), let me just get it out of the way and say this is going to be a very different review from what you’re going to see in the rest of the media. In other words, take this as a fan reviewing the show for fans.

On Thursday night, Glenn performed his Unelectable 2012 comedy show in front of a packed audience at the Majestic Theater  in San Antonio, Texas. Alongside The B.S. of A.’s Brian Sack, Matt Fisher, and Jack Helmuth, Glenn excoriated politicians and the media to a chorus of cheers, laughs, and tears from the live audience. The show was simulcast to movie theaters across the country.

In the first half of the show, Jack and Matt played the roles of the “unbiased” journalists who were charged with moderating the debate between Brian and Glenn. And while Brian played the traditional politician, a very thinly veiled parody of Barack Obama, Glenn played himself, the everyday guy with common sense solutions that could never, ever get elected.

During the opening forty-five minutes, the Brian and Glenn were asked questions tackling everything from the economy, immigration, and the size of the federal government. In response to the questions, Brian would just ramble off empty platitudes and promises, never giving an honest answer (if he gave an answer at all).  Meanwhile, Glenn delivered tangible solutions that were rooted in conservative values.

The back-and-forth between the two elicited a lot of laughs from the audience. One highlight was Brian’s solution to the immigration issue being to print off a giant banner that would read “Immi-GREAT-ion”, a new slogan that he claimed was testing well with voters. While Matt and Jack applauded the President’s great idea, Glenn couldn’t help but call out his idiocy and mock President Obama’s record on immigration to thunderous applause from the crowd.

As the comedy portion came to an end, Jack and Matt walked right past Glenn to hug President Sack and escort him off stage.

The rest of the evening saw Glenn speak for about an hour as he told stories covering that revolved around current events, history, and family.

At one point he took issue with President Obama’s new flag, which removes the stars in favor of the Obama symbol. The worst part? Obama’s tweet “A poster to say there are no red states or blue states, only the United States.”

“When did we start hating each other because they voted a different way? Be specific on why you have problems with people,” Glenn said at one point.

“We’re different, but it is that difference – it is the facet of the diamond that makes it so special. The more facets the more brilliant it becomes. E pluribus unum – from many, one,” Glenn said.

Glenn said that what the President seems to be forgetting is that we are a nation full of people who are different, unique, and have a variety of opinions. It is those differences that make America great.

During the show, Glenn also spent a lot of time discussing the relationship between Thomas Paine and George Washington, and how there different views on faith shaped their experiences during the revolutions in France and America.

He concluded with a touching story about taking his son to go see Spider-Man on Broadway, and how the show gave him a bonding experience with his son that he never had with his own father.

From food and job shortages to the prices of building materials "skyrocketing," the world is currently moving into what could be the "perfect storm" for politicians to push for a universal basic income, explained Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"We really need to look at the economy and be prepared for what is coming," Glenn said. "I feel like my job is to warn you of the things that are coming and, when I can, give you ways to navigate around. But at least so you can hear the warning and decide yourself what you're going to do with that."

Glenn explained that now, for the first time, there is a shortage of starter homes and building supplies just as increasing numbers of millennials are in the market. Also, analysts are predicting that shortages of food items and products such as pork, polystyrene, and chlorine could send prices soaring. Then there's the matter of unemployment, kicked off by the COVID-19 pandemic and likely to worsen because of the technological revolution, there are going to be fewer and fewer jobs for people to do.

"We are creating this perfect storm, right now, where universal basic income is going to be embraced by people," Glenn warned. "It's just this nasty cycle that we're beginning, and we're watching it unfold right in front of us."

More than 100 business leaders and CEOs from some of the world's largest corporations recently met during a Zoom meeting to discuss how they can band together to fight "election integrity laws," like the voting law recently passed in Georgia.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck explained how this government-corporation partnership is not only proof of fascism, but it is also demonstrative of how our lives will be under The Great Reset: government and large corporations will work together to set the rules, and the freedoms of the individual American will be squashed.

"I want you to understand ... everything that they have ever said about, 'oh, it's a conspiracy theory' about The Great Reset, you can throw that in the garbage now," Glenn began. "Something happened this weekend that is absolutely unprecedented. I have done this job, for ... I don't even know how many years, almost 50 years, and I've never seen anything like this.

"People that were on the [Zoom] call, they talked about potential ways to show how they opposed the legislation, including ... delaying investments in states. That's blackmail," Glenn continued.

"So these corporations, they're going to act as a — what? A secondary government? ... I don't know. I didn't elect the CEO of Merck. Did you?" he said.

"Corporations [are] openly meeting and coordinating efforts to change laws," Glenn added. "This is fascism, guys! Fascism is when government and corporations work hand in hand. That is fascism."

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."
