FLASHBACK: Stephen Colbert mocks food insurance, preppers

Will anyone call out Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, and virtually every other prominent leftist on TV today who mocked Glenn Beck for advocating emergency preparedness? How are those libs feeling today, as New Yorkers literally go dumpster diving for food.

WATCH:

In New York City, people are literally diving into dumpsters for food and supplies. A local reporter said:

This neighborhood we're here outside the Key Foods Avenue A and east Fourth Street and people are dumpster‑diving. And what they're going after here is the food that was inside these Key Foods. We presume it all spoiled and was dumped out here for garbage. But instead those here, some that I've spoken with so hungry, they literally pride open this dumpster. You see that door open right now and they are literally picking through for whatever they can take home with themselves. We have seen every here from the elderly to families with children literally up on top of this looking for whatever it is that they could take home with themselves. To put this in perspective, again this community without power since Monday, so many people here seeking shelter and seeking a way to feed themselves. Water, they are looking for any kind of food and water possible. And this is the extent that they're willing to go to, the extremes that they're willing to go to.

"This is not very far from where my daughter had her apartment. Fourth Avenue and Avenue A, that's Manhattan and that's. I mean, that's remarkable, people ‑‑ and if you look at the pictures, you know, these aren't hobos. These are families. In America. In New York. Me, Stephen Colbert, how are you feeling about yourself? How are you feeling? Jon Stewart, how are you feeling about yourself? NBC, how are you feeling? CNN, how are you feeling? Mayor Bloomberg, how are you feeling? Anybody who said don't prepare, anybody who said you should ‑‑ you have food, food, food, you're storing food, oh, you preppers, how are you feelin' today? How are you feeling?" Glenn said.

"I'm pretty sure Stephen Colbert won't after his ridiculous mocking of food preparation. How many of those people who are going through dumpsters right now wish they had listened and prepared and got just a little bit of Food Insurance?" Pat said.

"This is the thing. You have to understand this is New York. This is the center of all power in New York. It is. It's ‑‑ well, it was until Obama got in. It was the center of the power of the world. You don't screw with New York. New York is ‑‑ New York's got it down. They will solve it. They have every resource. If New York doesn't get it, if they're diving in dumpsters, what do you think your neighborhood's going to be like?" Glenn warned.

After playing the clip of Stephen Colbert mocking Glenn for promoting preparedness, the guys addressed what they see as a dangerous problem in modern society.

"Here's the thing. It doesn't matter. The only reason to talk about this is because there are millions of Americans who get their news from these clowns. And they are wrong every single time. Because they're comedians. And they are not, they are not just making jokes of things. They are destroying opportunities. They are destroying exit ramps. They are destroying people."

"You know the thing that really bothers me is we haven't just dislodged from common sense. We have dislodged from all common decency. Decency. Today's the day that Jon Stewart should get on and say, "You know what? We've made fun of this before and we were joking and there's no malice here but it (preparation) is important. It is important."

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?
