Can Glenn survive 2013 without mentioning ‘That guy’?

Glenn has really ambitious goals for 2013 but perhaps the most ambitious of all centers around NOT saying someone’s name all year long. He has vowed not to mention or play audio of a certain President of the United States, known henceforth as ‘that guy’ and anyone on staff who does will incur serious penalty. How serious is Glenn about keeping this?

"Yes, this is the radio show, the talk radio, politically oriented show that will no longer say that man's name, or play any of his audio," Glenn said on radio this morning.

He was so serious about the ban that he planned to treat "that guy's" name as a swear word. He asked his board op Sarah to dump the audio if it wasn't mentioned in the proper context, and he started a swear jar to collect money for charity every time someone mentioned that guy or played his voice.

Of course, it's hard for a political talk show to not mention "that guy", and the confusing rules put in place got a little confusing. For instance, it's OK to say Obamacare because it's the name for healthcare policy. But you can't say Barack Obama or Obama. Robyn can put audio from President Obama in her news broadcast, but Pat cannot play audio during the radio show.

"This is not a democracy. This is in a republic. Nobody elected me," Glenn said. " I'm king. That's the rule."

Of course, this caused some confusion later in the show when Glenn almost said "the Obama tax cuts", prompting Stu to put Glenn on the spot exactly about how these new rules worked. In the end, it was clear the best idea was to just avoid it all together.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."
