Glenn explains why visiting NY makes him a ‘little pessimistic’

Glenn has been in New York for just a couple of days now, but Pat and Stu could not help but notice that being the in the city has put him into a bit of a funk. You see, Glenn has been particularly ‘gloom and doom’ this week, and Stu questioned if the trip to the Big Apple had anything to do with it.

“Stu thinks that I should not be allowed to be in New York anymore,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “I think that's what Governor Cuomo thinks as well.”

“There's no place for you here, Glenn,” Stu explained. “And I actually back up the governor. He's a very smart man. You need to get the hell back to Texas… You change when you're here. And I love you, but you turn into a different person, I think.”

Despite the unfortunate politics of New York, Glenn has actually always loved the city. But now it just seems to make him depressed.

“It's just I think… knowing your love of history and knowing your love of this area and your love of the buildings here and the way the city was built,” Stu said. “And I think… it's like you see the history there and then you see what it's become. And it's like you're looking into the future of the country.”

In New York, you have the opportunity to see the past, present, and future in one simple glance. And what Glenn is able to see makes him a “little pessimistic.”

“I had a bunch of people in the office last night. And I said to one of the guys, ‘Come on, you got to sit in my chair,’” Glenn explained. “Because when you're sitting in my chair at my desk here in the office, you see in one window the full Empire State Building… And then you turn the other way and perfectly framed is the Chrysler Building. So it's like the greatest iconic view of the city you've ever seen. And those two buildings tell to story of America in the Great Depression.”

“But at the same time, I walk down the streets and I see the brownstones and I think of Theodore Roosevelt and the gangs of the New York and the early progressive era. Right across the street from our building here, underneath us… is the IRS building… And the giant debt clock is right where we walk in every day,” he continued. “Right across the street is – I can't remember the name of the theater – but it's the place where Margaret Sanger used to go. It was built for the progressives voice to be heard… And so I get into New York, and I've seen all this history right here. [But] everybody of is walking by it not looking up. And they have no idea. And unless you know that history, we're going to repeat it. We're going to repeat it. And so I get a little pessimistic.”

“That's a good word for it,” Stu concluded. “Maniacal is another word.”

Franklin Delano tugged at his hair

And tapped on the arms of his big metal chair

Then he said with a sigh, as he polished his glasses,

In a voice that was low, and as smooth as molasses,

"We must treat these Asians as separate classes

And put them where they can't be harming the masses

Can we put them high?

Can we put them low?

Oh where is the best place for them to all go?"

With a snap of his fingers both too soft and sluggish

(For his polio'd nerves were all wiggy and buggish)

But still had a ring that was brutal and thuggish

He smiled and said, "I've the perfect 'solution'!

A cultural cleansing from Asian pollution!

In this nebulous time full of fear and low wages,

And war with each other that rages and rages

And advice both from fools and from Democrat sages

Let's put all these terrible Asians in cages!"

---

"Oh my!" said Republicans hither and yon

"How that Franklin D. President does carry on!

But this lunatic plan, all at once or in stages

Is nincompoop nonsense, that flatly enrages

And fails to foresee how the public's will ages!

We will not, we must not throw Asians in cages!"

---

"Hear! Hear!" said those few who desired restitution

Of small government under the Constitution

"This Democrat dunce with his pen and his ink,

Will be all our undoing, we fear and we think!

There is nary a depth to which he will not sink!

We must not throw Asian folk into the Clink!"

---

"Yes, indeed," said the Pentagon's pencil-necked nerds

"We must stop these executive's damaging words

For he speaks and his words turn at once into turds

And his plan for the Asians is just for the birds!

This racist mistake, it's a crime for the ages,

We will not, we must not put Asians in cages!"

---

"And yet," said Progressives, who'd slithered right in,

"Would you rather we lose at this war and not win?

Would you like if, quite soon, we're all spending in Yen?

No, of course we must act, though the people may chafe

You strike iron while it's hot to keep everyone safe

We say 'Hail to the Chief', though your ire it enrages

Executive orders by hundreds of pages

Must pour from his hand, 'til our fear it assuages

We must now lock up all these Asians in cages!

---

And so it was done, to our shame and our guilt

And we damn near lost every good thing that we built

But from history we learn, and to history we go

For a crack at a future so bright it could glow

And no matter how Leftism strikes and engages

Us all in a battle of wits that enrages

We still have one thing we can say through the ages:

"It sure wasn't us who put Asians in cages."

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."
