Glenn harassed at local bookstore


It turns out Glenn isn’t immune from left wing dopes even in the great state of Texas. Instead of having an honest conversation about differences, these students thought lying about who they are and being sarcastic was the more productive way to go. Glenn recounts his run in with a couple of Jon Stewart loving losers on radio today.

Glenn said:

I was at a Barnes and Noble this weekend and just minding my own business and I come around a corner and there's this young ‑‑ two young kids, probably high school, maybe college. And I come around the corner and the guy goes, "Oh, my gosh. Glenn Beck." Now, they look like total losers and ‑‑ but, you know, who am I to judge. Maybe you're not a loser. It turns out I was right. But anyway, I come around the corner and he says, "Glenn Beck." And I'm thinking to myself, "Not a fan. Not a fan. This is not a good thing." And ‑‑ but I don't judge and I'm like, "Hi, how are you?" "Great. Oh, I was so happy to hear that you moved here." And I said, "Were you?" Yes. "Well, that's great. It's really nice to meet you. What's your name?" I'm so‑and‑so. Is this your girlfriend? Hi. Nice to meet you. Have a good night, guys.

So I walk away. I'm looking for a specific book. I happen to be waiting for a friend of mine. I come over to where an Isaac Asimov book is, and I pick it up and I'm thinking about getting it for Raphe because he writes great stories. And here comes that guy again. And he says, "Oh, it's ‑‑ he's great. He writes a lot of great science fiction." And I'm thinking, I'm sure there's a message in there somehow or another. And I said, "Yes, he does." And he said, "You know, could I talk to you about something?" I said, "Uh‑huh." And he said, he said, "You know, Jon Stewart really made fun of you last ‑‑ this week." And I said, "Did he?" "Yeah, because, you know, you talk about building this some sort of a, you know, American utopia thing?" And I'm thinking, well, now I've got my answer because anybody who's a big fan would ‑‑ it's an American utopia? And I said it's ‑‑ I don't know if it will ever be built and it's an experiment in how to live a better life and try to find new ways to live together. "Well, but he was saying that, you know, you want to have all kinds of regulations on how people would live and, you know, monitor their backyards and stuff. I thought you weren't for any of that." And I said, "Yeah, well, Jon Stewart likes to take things out of ‑‑ out of context because he's a comedian. That's what he does. So I wouldn't get my news from Jon Stewart. But that's not..." and I explained to him, you know ‑‑ I talked and I knew he was not a fan and he was just trying to be, you know, a jerk. But I was really cool.

His girlfriend, I'm sad to say, kind of participated and I thought, you know, when a society, when the women are not better than the men, when the women just don't go, "Come on. Let's go," when they don't do that, you're a society in real trouble. So she follows along. They go downstairs and they're laughing and stuff and they're on the phone. I go into the little, you know, place where there's cookies and I'm sitting there with my wife and we're talking, and pretty soon ‑‑ and my security is like all of a sudden getting their hair up and I see my security guy and he just kind of looks at me and I'm like, "Let's go." And I turn around. He had already approached these guys and said, "I don't know what you're planning but you better be very careful." Because they had called their friends. We were there for about 20 minutes. They had called their friends and now there was a group of them and they were behind me kind of surrounding the table. Don't know ‑‑ have any idea what they were doing. And so I got up and I turn around and that's when I saw them. And security guys right next to me. And this is in Texas. And I just looked at him and he's like, "So Glenn Beck." And I just looked at him and I said, "You know, it's really okay that we disagree. It's really okay. It's totally cool. Could have had a really good and interesting conversation as two people who disagree with each other. You really shouldn't lie on who you are and misrepresent yourself because that's not cool. That stops us from learning from each other." And his friend says, "You know, he says that you lie about everything you say, but that sounded like truth. So I guess he's wrong." Said, good night, guys. Walked away.

What is that? When did we think that's cool? I wouldn't do that to anybody. I wouldn't do that to the president. I wouldn't do that to Michael Moore. I wouldn't do that to anybody. When did we become the society where we can't have an honest exchange? When did ‑‑ when did ‑‑ when did somebody who's college age get to be such a jerk and such an incredibly uninformed cretin that they actually think that Jon Stewart is the news? And so they get all of their opinions formed by a comedian.

They get their opinions from comedians and they don't even take the time. And when you have the opportunity to say, "Hey, man, you know, I heard this. I don't get this. And I'm not a fan of yours, but I'd really like to understand. I don't understand this. What are you doing?" To be able to have a great conversation. And I thought to myself, my daughter said to me as we were talking about this, she said, "Dad, that's their time." And I said, "What do you mean?" And she said, "People like that, they're on their time. They are not on your time. Let them have their time. They are not even worth your time. Don't even think about it. Don't think about it during it. Don't think about it after. That's their time. They're choosing to waste their time. Don't waste yours." And I said, "You know, honey, you are wise beyond your years."

I said but here's why I did take the time. I knew this guy was a jerk. But here's why I took the time and it actually was more for his girlfriend. I thought, if I can be who I am and there's a second that he reflects later and says, gosh, maybe I'm wrong. I mean, remember Penn Jillette was like this to me the first time. He was a real religious bigot. He's not anymore. And I think I've changed because of him and he's changed because of me. It's good to have those die logs and those conversations with each other. And that's the only reason ‑‑ because if we stop talking to each other, we're done.

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.

Note: The content of this clip does not provide medical advice. Please seek the advice of local health officials for any COVID-related questions & concerns.
