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.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
