Glenn: I'm trying to be a better husband. I'm trying to be a better father. I don't want to joke about it.

Glenn and Tania just celebrated their anniversary recently and there was some on air controversy surrounding the ‘ring incident’ and the jokes that came in the aftermath. While it seemed like good fun at the time, he has a different perspective on it a few days later. Glenn talked about the new direction he’s heading in as a husband and father on radio today.

"I would like to have a personal moment here, Pat, and Stu. Because I ‑‑ well, you (Pat and Stu) too. You too in your behavior. Now it's rubbing off on me and I'm making easy jokes. I think I said this to you guys on Monday or Tuesday and we've kind of been talking about it all week kind of off the air, and you guys know that, I mean, I have the greatest wife in the world. We all do. And I love my wife. And when the ring was flushed down could have easily ‑‑ I mean, I did. I mean, it was like ‑‑ it's easy jokes. Easy jokes," Glenn said.

"But for the first time in my career, I think, since being married to Tania or even dating Tania, I have ‑‑ I've made easy jokes like, 'Yeah, I know. Well, she's ‑‑ she's calling me fat,' all this stuff. Well, that one actually she did, but -."

"I played down the incident and honestly it doesn't seem to bother her, which might be something else that we need to look into, but doesn't seem to bother her that these jokes are going on. I don't want to. Today I made an easy joke 15 minutes into the show, 15 minutes into it and I'm like that is ‑‑ that is just the easiest joke ever, and it's at the expense of my wife. Why would I do that? I do not want to do that."

" I've always hated guys, always hated when guys are like, "Yeah, the old ball and chain,".

Glenn said that when Tania goes out with girlfriends and when she comes home "We'll talk and she has always said, 'I'm amazed how I get around so many women and they just throw their husbands under the bus.  And they just, you know, they just do it.'  And I said, guys are the same way.  I don't want to be that way."

"I've been divorced before and I've been in a relationship that had marital problems, and I'm glad I'm not in that," he continued. "And I don't want to ever speak anything into existence.  I believe in the power of the word.  You speak things, say things, you speak them into existence.  I'm not going to do that.  I don't want to do that as a joke."

After Stu gave Glenn a hard time over the new rules, Pat clarified, "I think the heart of this is you don't want to joke that the relationship is on the rocks."

"Right. There are some things that shouldn't be joked about," Glenn said. "And my marriage to my wife is sacred."

Glenn explained, "Maybe it's I'm sensitive because I've turned a new leaf this year and I've ‑‑ I sense something different in me for the very first time in my life and I mean, Pat knows me better than anybody and, you know, I beat myself up on being a bad dad, and I'm not a bad dad.  I'm just not the dad I want to be.  And it's hard.  And I'm ‑‑ and I'm not a bad husband.  I'm just not the husband I want to be.  And I have felt so strongly in the last three months and especially in the last month or last two and a half months.  Since the election really, I really evaluated my life, and what are you doing spending your time?  What is it ‑‑ and I'm really, for the first time in my life, really not only wanting to change but sensing a change for the good.  And I don't want, I don't want to joke about things because I'm sorry.  I do believe in speaking things into existence.  And I just don't want to joke about things on that, which I'm trying to do.  I'm trying to change as much as I possibly can.  I'm trying to be a better husband.  I'm trying to be a better father.  I don't want to joke about it.  And I have no problem joking about how much, you know, you wouldn't want to be Tania, married to me.  I have no problem with that.  I have no problem with all that stuff.  It's just, I guess I'm sensitive on the sanctity of my relationship with my children and the relationship with my wife because I want it so badly.  I want it to be good," Glenn said.

 

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."
