Glenn asks San Diego to take a stand for women

If you paid any attention to the news cycle during the Presidential election in November, you've heard of the "war on women" that, according to the Democrats, is allegedly being waged by the Republican Party. Unfortunately for the Democrats, their track record on women's issues is nothing shy of abhorrent.

While the GOP has it's own issues with politicians like Mark Sanford, if you take a quick trip down the Democrat's hall of shame you'll run across the likes of Anthony "tweets-his-junk" Weiner, Eliot "client #9" Spitzer, Bill Clinton (no nickname required), Bob "should be in jail" Filner, …should I go on?

One quick look at that list and you should notice one thing. All of these guys either still have power, are praised by the left, or actually have a chance or being elected in a few short months. Is that how the Democrats fight the "war on women"? By electing sexual predators who target women in the workplace to office? Or worse, in the case of San Diego Mayor Filner, stand by him and let him hold office?

This morning on radio, Glenn gave the citizens of San Diego a small tool to fight back: a small, but direct sign that they can hang in the windows of their businesses to send a message directly to Bob Filner and his supporters.

"I made a sign for the people of San Diego, all the businesses in San Diego, and I want to put it up on the web site, so you could print it out if you are in San Diego," Glenn told listeners.

Glenn explained that the women who work in businesses around the city of San Diego should not be subjected to the abuse this man brings upon women.

"I'm not going to send my staff out to San Diego to do anything in San Diego. I don't know why conservatives don't take this stance. I mean, you're accused of a "war on women". Why not stand up for women?  Here's a great way."

This establishment recognizes that we all have political differences and we serve people from all walks of life.  We also believe it's imperative for people to have standards.  The mayor of San Diego will not be served in this establishment.  We believe women should be treated with with respect.

"We got it. We understand political differences and we're serving everybody with political differences, but we are or not going to serve the mayor because we believe that women should be treated with respect," Glenn added. "Come in and argue that with me. Go ahead, argue that with me."

"It's about that the right starts understanding that the Alinsky tactics — some of them — are okay," Glenn noted. "And one of them is isolation."

And while Glenn has stated that he is against boycotts, he's certainly not against putting your money, or NOT putting your money, where your mouth is.

It's not a bad thing to avoid associating yourself with brands, people, and politicians that stand opposite of your values system.

"We used to have discriminating tastes," Glenn explained. "You see that's what they've done. We used to have discriminating tastes.  We used to say, 'no, don't play with him'."

Glenn explained that the left has flipped the nail on it's head. Labeling those who don't associate with certain lifestyles, organizations, people, political stances, etc. as haters, racists, anti-this or that. The truth is, with most of these groups, it's not that they're standing against something — they're standing for something: their values and their principles.

"They have told us they stand for women, but every time there's a chance to stand for women, every time there's a chance to say 'this guy's a total dirtbag, he is a total dirtbag that does everything he can to demean and harass women,' they don't do anything," Glenn said nothing the prominent figures on the left who have been emboldened by their supporters to remain in the public eye.

"They are not for women," he continued. "A real war on women is the war that happens when nobody's looking. When a man has power over a woman and says 'you know what, honey, you're going to put out right now'. That's the war on women.  And that is being fought every single day by women all across this country, and you know who's condoning it? That's not the conservatives. Who's condoning it as a party, the Democrats and the progressives. Every single time they have stepped up to the plate and had a chance to prove themselves as being for women, for women's rights, and for women not to be abused, they've blown it every time. Why? Because the collective is more important than the individual. They will absolutely stand up and say this woman, this woman was abused. Really? They were abused? Oh, and it's the biggest thing ever, when it serves their political purposes."

When former Missouri Senate Candidate Todd Akin made his ridiculous claims about rape, the Democrats were ready to pounce. They took Todd Akin down, and the GOP was hardly defending his comments. They knew he was out of line. But what about Bill Clinton, Eliot Spitzer, Anthony Weiner, and now, one of the worst, Bob Filner? The only reason these men are so arrogant to think that they can treat women and continue to behave the way they do is because their party emboldens their actions because they like their agenda.

Sure, Spitzer and Weiner both left office briefly, but one quickly was awarded a TV show on CNN and the other in running for Mayor of the most powerful city in the country. They're hardly ashamed.

"San Diego, I'm begging you right now…take a stand for being a better person," Glenn said. "Take a stand for treating women with respect. This has nothing to do with anything other than calling these people out and saying you're frauds. You may not be for women, if it goes against your political stand, but we are. We are."

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
