GOP invades CPAC: Glenn reacts to Mitch McConnell’s dramatic entrance

Yesterday marked the start of the 2014 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, D.C., and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made headlines after sauntering onto the stage holding a rifle while Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer” played in the background. On radio this morning, Glenn questioned whether CPAC is really as conservative as its name suggests or if the big-government, progressive Republicans have invaded the event.

“Like this is the most absurd Mitch McConnell entrance of all time… What a stupid, stupid entrance at CPAC. But CPAC is not for conservatives. It is the GOP. That's all it is… They have great conservatives there… [but] it's the GOP.”

In addition to the various speeches, a ‘minority outreach’ panel was also on yesterday’s CPAC agenda. In theory, minority outreach should be an important component of Republican strategy, but Glenn warned of the difference between big government and small government-minded outreach.

“And CPAC is doing things like minority outreach. You tell the truth, and then those who are attracted to truth will come,” Pat said. “Those minority outreach things go: What positions can we change or manipulate to make them think we are believing a certain thing when we are not.”

“Hang on just a second. I believe the GOP does believe those things. We'll go to the communities and promise them all kind of stuff,” Glenn interjected. “Conservatives don't.”

As Pat explained, there are plenty big government Republicans who pretend to be pro-small government. Even President Obama will masquerade as Ronald Reagan every once in a while.

“I'm fine with small government conservatives,” Glenn concluded. “But if you want to be very clear on making my point for me, this is CPAC – the Conservative Political Action Conference.”

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.
