Glenn: Are we morons?

After listening to ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith excoriate the politically correct crowd, Glenn wondered what it is people want in America today. Is the goal to be coddled and spoken down to like morons? Or is the goal to be free?

“Let me just go through one thing here on the choice that we all have to make,” Glenn said. “We all have to decide: What do you want? Do you want to be free, or do you want to be coddled? Do you want to be treated like a moron, or do you want to be treated like an adult? If you want to be treated like an adult you have to start acting like an adult.”

As you may have noticed, Mercury Studios is undergoing a major renovation of both its studio and office space. Glenn has a very unique vision for the space that included hanging a giant, 35-foot submarine over the main office space. While shopping for furniture, Glenn happened across a wooden octopus carving that would compliment the submarine nicely. Ben, head of the American Dream Labs team overseeing the renovations, agreed, and the octopus was hung as well.

The project has been underway for several months, but both the octopus and submarine were finally in place on Friday afternoon at which point at least one member of Glenn’s staff – ahem, Jeffy – raised some concerns. Apparently, the octopus hangs over the center of a table and the tentacles of the octopus are technically at eye level, though because of the placement, it would be very difficult for someone to poke their eye out as Jeffy suggested.

“I just wanted to talk to Ben about it because it looked dangerous,” Jeffy said on radio this morning.

Ben shared Jeffy’s feedback with Glenn over the weekend, to which Glenn had a very simple response.

“I said, ‘Here's how you answer that from here on out: I didn't realize Glenn was in the habit of hiring morons.’ Yes, Jeffy, you are the exception. But we don’t hire morons,” Glenn explained. “I mean I stood there at the tentacles of the octopus, and yes, they are at eye height. But let me tell you something: Nobody's standing that close to the octopus. If you are, what are you doing? Are you licking their little suction cups? What are you doing?”

“So anyway, we all have to decide,” he continued. “This is not just a monologue about us here in this building. This is a monologue for all of Americans. Are you a moron?”

As Glenn explained, we have devolved into a society in which we are policing one another’s each and every move. If we truly believe people are moronic and require that kind of constant oversight, than maybe there is no hope.

“Am I the only one? Can we not have some sort of personal responsibility in our lives? I don't want to have everything made safe for me,” Glenn concluded. “My gosh. Think of our childhood. We all survived somehow or another. We all survived.”

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
