Rapper explains the benefits of carrying an ACLU card in bizarre marketing video

There is a new marketing blitz from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) that seems to suggest Americans must carry around an ACLU card in order to guarantee their First Amendment rights. The ad features award-winning rapper Macklemore crudely explaining the protections an ACLU card supposedly offers him.

“Now there's this ACLU rapper, and I don't think the ACLU understands freedom. I agree with them on a few things, not a lot, but I agree with them on a few things. [But] they think their ACLU card is what saves people, and that's not what saves people. The Constitution is what saves people,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “And the ACLU, for years, has worked against the Constitution. This was started by communists, literally started by communists, and they were to dismantle the Constitution. But there is a really interesting ad for the ACLU, and they're trying to mimic the, you know, 'I don't leave home without it’ kind of credit card ads.”

Watch the ad below (Warning: Video contains strong language):

“Now I have a Kroger card,” Pat joked. “That helps me be better. I think I can marry the hell out of a sirloin steak, can't I? Can I do that? Or can I just buy the hell out of the sirloin steak?”

While Pat and Stu couldn’t understand the purpose or benefit of the video, Glenn found it to be a “brilliant” marketing strategy.

“That's a brilliant campaign,” Glenn said. “Here's the brilliant ad: ‘It's the card that allows my gay friends to marry the hell out of each other.’ That will print. It will be a very effective ad.”

“But it's not. It's not the ACLU card. And in certain states, you're going to find out with your ACLU card you can't marry the hell out of your partner because it's against the law. And the ACLU card doesn't make it legal,” Pat retorted. “So it's a dumb campaign. I'm sure it will [be effective], but a lot of people are going to be disappointed when they show it and they can't marry the hell out of their partner.”

Even if that particular portion of the video may make for a buzz worthy ad, Glenn, Pat, and Stu reiterated that First Amendment rights come from and are protected by the Constitution.

“Think about this, though: With the ACLU card you can remind yourself of what are just Constitutional rights. But the TEA Party is crazy for their pocket Constitutions,” Stu explained. “In theory what is the difference?”

“Here it is. The pocket Constitution empowers you. The ACLU card empowers them,” Glenn said. “The whole world is about getting rid of the middleman and yet, the middlemen want the power. People say, ‘The thing I don't like about the TEA Party is there's no central command.’ Excuse me? Well, I guess we could have a board someplace, and we could fill it with Karl Roves and they could decide who you get to vote for. What's wrong with people? It's gonna be messy. That's what life is. It's gonna be messy.”

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
