Why the GOP must learn from young conservatives

On last night's Glenn Beck Program, guest-host Dana Loesch sat down with an audience of young conservatives to discuss the future of the GOP. The 2012 election proved to be much closer than the mainstream media and Democrats expected. But, at the end of the day, President Obama won the election because of the overwhelming support of a key demographic: the youth.

President Obama received 67% of the youth vote, compared to Mitt Romney's 30%. In many states, this margin dictated whether the state went red or blue. Had Romney been able to just split the youth vote, he may have been able to win the election.

"Twenty-three million young adults between the ages of 18 to 29 voted, which accounted for an increase in the percentage of the electorate, 18 to 19%," Dana explained. "Now think about it, 333,000 votes in four different swing states would have made the difference between a President Obama and a President Romney. Now, Romney lost the popular vote 48 to 51%. That is not a landslide loss...  Folks, these aren’t big numbers. These aren’t numbers that couldn’t have been overcome."

Because these numbers are so nominal, Dana believes no single voting block provided such an impactful loss than the youth vote. Not the black vote. Not the female vote. The youth vote.

So how can the GOP overcome this problem? What can the Republican Party do to excite and mobilize this historically left-leaning block? It is clear the GOP has the principles and the message to allow this demographic to grow and prosper, but there is an obvious communication problem.

To discuss this problem, Dana spoke to Amy Lutz, a blogger and editor for TheCollegeConservative.com, and 24-year-old Georgia State Representative Michael Caldwell.

Another major problem the GOP faces is the culture. The leftists in Hollywood and beyond have monopolized the weapon that is popular culture for far too long to propagate Democratic ideals. But with so few Republicans in the industry, what can the GOP do to win the culture? Dana sat down with Brandon Morse of MisfitPolitics.co and Michelle Fields of NextGeneration.tv to discuss inroads the Republican Party make into the cultural landscape.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

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.
