Rebel or Artist? Meet the anonymous man driving the left crazy in Los Angeles

Glenn has been talking about the vital importance of conservative voices infiltrating the liberal-dominated cultural landscape for quite some time. On Monday's Glenn Beck Program, Glenn spoke to one man who has taken that message to heart - Los Angeles-based artist SABO. SABO has been creating conservative art for more than a decade now, but it was in the last few years that SABO began plastering his controversial posters all around LA. Because his work is illegal, SABO's face was not shown during the interview and his real name was not used.

To begin, Glenn asked SABO to run through some of his most iconic works. From a poster of a tattooed, smoking Ted Cruz to the 'Abortion Barbie' poster featuring Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis.

"Ted Cruz, you know, that was a fluke," SABO said. "He was coming into town, and what I knew about Ted Cruz visually was a little boring, but the way he acts is kind of bold. And I’d seen a poster of Marilyn Monroe with tattoos all over, and I said you know what, I’m going to try to do that. I did that for him."

While SABO said the Cruz poster received a "lukewarm response," the Senator has been photographed autographing the image. He did point out, however, the one glaring problem with the poster - the cigarette in his mouth. Cruz is not a smoker.

SABO and Glenn moved the interview to Glenn's office where the artist opened up about his frustrations with the current culture.

"It’s like, the Republicans, you dare not say anything without fear of getting hit over the head," he said. "I live in Los Angeles, and I know my share of Republican...They have their Ferraris, their Aston Martins, their Bentleys. They bitch, moan, and complain about the state of politics. And my thought is man, if I only had one night of the money that you spend on hookers and booze, I could change the narrative at least a little bit. And it’s like, and they never do. You know, they’ll never donate."

Glenn asked SABO, a former Marine, if he is concerned about being arrested. While he has no desire to be arrested, he understands what he does is illegal.

"What I do is illegal," he said. "But at 46 years old, I have a little bit of bark on me."

Ultimately, Glenn asked SABO what advice he has for young people looking for a creative outlet.

"When you’re young, and you decide you want to be a creative, you’re almost indoctrinated into the belief that you have to be a liberal or a progressive… They own the narrative. They own Hollywood. They own the education system," SABO concluded. "Anything that reaches your eyes, ears, or heart is coming from the left. That’s why the Republicans have no creative people to push their message. And the thing is we have a great message, we just don’t have anyone to tell it because they’ve all been indoctrinated to the left."

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."
