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.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
