Kansas town flirts with "progress" and loses traditional values

There is a sign in the town of Buhler, Kansas causing controversy in the news this week. The sign in the small town, described as a town rooted in "small town values", featured a large cross, representative of much of the towns values. The sign is now being changed following a law suit from the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF).

The group complained, claiming the cross "violates the Constitution." TheBlaze reported that the cross has been included in the design for the past 24 years, however the FFRF didn't complain until the image was posted in a city park just four months ago.

After the city council decided to comply with the legal demands, the citizens responded with an extensive Facebook campaign. After just two days, the campaign gathered a lot of strength and the people of Buhler decided the sign isn't going very far. They're moving the sign across the street to private property.

Watch the local news report here:

This morning on radio, Glenn expressed his opinion on the FFRF's campaign and the cities response.

"The really missed the point of this sign," Glenn said this morning. "…nobody is talking about the progressives ideas being the problem on that sign."

Glenn was referring to the slogan on the sign that on one version reads: "Our second century of progress," and on another says, "Tradional Values. Progressive Ideas."

Glenn pointed out that the town is ironically up in arms over a group wanting to remove the cross from the public sign — they don't understand why.

Well, because it's a progress organization and they're pushing their "progressive ideas".

"You're eventually going to lose the cross in your seal if your seal has "progressive ideas" in it," Glenn quipped. "No doubt about it."

Glenn continued to point out the irony in the situation noting that the communities solution is to move the sign to private property.

"What is the progressive idea?  The elimination of private property," he said. "If you continue with these progressive ideals and ideas, you will lose your private property.  Which means you have no place to have your point of view.  None."

The situation with this town's sign is a great example of what progressivism does to traditional values, Glenn pointed out. The sign mixed the church with progressivism from the get-go.

They took traditional values and the Bible together with "progress" — which is antithetical in the eyes of a progressive. But, in the name of progress, they got together and said 'we'll compromise to make this baby step'. But in doing that the "traditional values" are really what are continuing to be weakened — weakened to the point where they are now doing all of the compromising, not the progressives.

"The and thing is they didn't have to move it in the first place.  This doesn't violate anything constitutional," Pat noted.

The FFRF even said that they sent a letter to the city council citing it was illegal based on federal rulings. Federal rulings are not the same as constitutional rulings — they're simply acting on precedent, a progressive idea. Using precedent makes the Constitution nearly irrelevant in most court cases now. The law can just be progressed ruling after ruling.

"The you can change the constitution. That's the way our system work. They [progressives] didn't like that. What they decided to go — and they started at Harvard — they stop teaching constitutional law to teach precedent," Glenn explained. "So now it's what does the court say? It's not about the constitution. What is the precedent from the public? Does the public -- are they moving in this direction? Are they progressing in this direction because we'll just use the evidence of the movement of the country is this way.  So they've completely taken the constitution out."

Glenn pointed out another example of an anti-religious progressive attack that was highlighted on O'Reilly's show just last night. This attack was directed towards Christmas. Watch O'Reilly's confrontation with the anti-religion spokesman below. You can get the full story on TheBlaze.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
