Why does a Vermont Democrat want TheBlaze on TV?

Yesterday, TheBlaze shared the story of Sandy Baird, a lawyer, professor, and a longtime Democrat from Burlington, Vermont, who believes TheBlaze TV should be available in her area.

Why? Because Baird, like Glenn, respects the First Amendment and wants to see and hear more voices, not less.

Earlier this month, Baird was quoted in Seven Days, a Vermont newspaper that describes itself as an “independent voice,” about her support of bringing both Al Jazeera America and TheBlaze to the local Burlington Telecom network (BT). “I support the efforts to have TheBlaze TV come to Burlington, because I support free speech and believe we should have access to as many political perspectives as possible,” she told Seven Days.

During a follow-up interview with TheBlaze, Baird explained that she lobbied for the inclusion of Al Jazeera America, which launches next Tuesday, on the BT channel lineup, and she ultimately won that fight. Now, she has turned her attention to TheBlaze.

“I think that my students — as well as all Americans — need to see all those views, and frankly, they don’t on [the] mainstream media,” she told TheBlaze. “They either watch MSNBC, which is a channel for the Democrats, or they watch Fox, which is a vehicle for the Republicans. And while that’s fine, we need a lot more views. And frankly, a lot more information. And that’s why I totally support free speech.”

Though she wasn’t familiar with the Missouri rodeo incident, after a brief rundown, Baird offered this insight: “I was at one point the state legislator for my district, and at that point there was a big movement here in Vermont to outlaw flag burning, and I took the position then and I’ll take the same position now — the Constitution is not about speak that we agree with. The Constitution is about speech that we don’t agree with. You are free in this country, it seems to me – at least we have been – to express disagreeable opinions.”

“Amen,” Glenn said on radio this morning. "That is exactly where I am. That is exactly where I have been. That's where most Americans are. The fog is starting to clear. People are starting to see.”

“There's a change coming. The American people are waking. The American people have found things to unite on,” Glenn concluded. “Say and believe and stand in those places: the Constitution now and forever, freedom of conscience, and the Constitution. It is the winning ground. And if you actually believe it and mean it, home run. You win.”

To coincide with the launch on Al Jazeera America on Tuesday, August 20, TheBlaze is organizing a #GetTheBlaze Day of Action to encourage television providers to add another voice, another choice to your channel lineup: TheBlaze. Get all the details on the Day of Action HERE.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.
