Glenn explains why Putin is ‘licking his chops’ at the thought of Scottish independence

On Thursday, the Scottish people headed to the polls to cast their vote in a historic independence referendum that could mean the end of the 307-year-old United Kingdom. According to USA Today, 97% of eligible voters are expected to take part in today’s vote, and residents as young as 16 have been granted the right to participate. On radio this morning, Glenn did not support or oppose Scottish independence, instead running through some of the ramifications of a ‘yes’ vote.

“So today is a historic day, and I don't think most Americans are paying attention to Scotland and what is happening in Scotland,” Glenn said. “But this is important.”

While Glenn believes Scotts will vote in favor of independence today, Pat was not convinced. They agreed, however, there is likely a generational divide on the issue.

“What's happening in Scotland is self-determination. Do people choose to say, ‘I want to be part of something new, something that is much more local,’” Glenn explained. “I find it hard to believe that in today's world, the 20-somethings wouldn't say, ‘We want our independence. We want to be local and self-determining.’”

“That's probably true, but how many of them would vote,” Pat asked. “I would think the older Scots will want to stick to the status quo. It's been going on for hundreds of years. Let's not break up the UK now.”

Given all that is going on in the world today, Scottish independence might be at the top of the headlines in the United States, but Glenn believes the American people should care about what happens.

“Here's why they should care: Because someone like Vladimir Putin is licking his chops,” Glenn said. “If [Scotland] actually vote yes – and the world is saying, ‘Well, they voted for their independence because they’re different ethnically’ – that means countries like the Ukraine – when they have ‘free and open elections,’ the world has to support them because they're just saying ‘we're different ethnically.’ ‘We have no trouble with Ukraine, [but] we're ethnic Russians, so we vote to go this way.’”

“That works for Crimea,” Pat added.

Ultimately, Glenn said the outcome of the Scottish independence vote will be indicative of the direction the world is headed.

“There's two reasons to pay attention to this. One, what does it mean to the rest of the world? What are we teaching the rest of the world – especially those that like Vlad Putin,” Glenn said. “And two: What direction is the world going in? Remember, the leaders of the world are going for an even bigger state. They're pushing for the global governance. They're pushing for the EU.”

“Think about that we're talking about: Breaking up the United Kingdom… Just imagine this happening 50 years ago,” he concluded. “Imagine what a big story this would have been. Now, people are like, ‘Whatever. I don't know.’ It's incredible.”

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."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
