Strange bedfellows: Liberal professors, activists unite with Glenn on the dangers of sexualizing Halloween

Is anyone else bothered by the tacky and trashy Halloween outfits targeted at young girls? You're not alone. In fact, it's an issue that unites some of the strangest of bedfellows. Would you ever believe that a liberal professor or an activist lesbian would be guests on 'The Glenn Beck Program'? Well, that's exactly what happened Tuesday night as strange bedfellows came together to discuss the disturbing, trashy trend taking over Halloween.

"I have three daughters, and even taking them out to go shopping for clothing is impossible because there’s nothing modest. It’s like I’m dressing my eight-year-old to go out to a nightclub," Glenn said.

The Halloween costumes on the shelves certainly don't send the right messages to young girls. If anything, they reinforce some of the worst ideas kids could be getting.

Dr. Janni Aragon, a professor from University of Victoria, Canada, told Glenn, "I think one of the things that we see, Glenn, here is that boys are able to run and play with their costumes, and with girls it’s about looking cute...I can recall looking for a bathing suit for my toddler, and the bikini top was padded. She didn’t need padding up top. I mean, I don’t even wear the padding for my bathing suit. I don’t want to. It’s not that I don’t need to, but why would I want to have my toddler or my preschooler wearing padded bathing suits? So it’s not just Halloween costumes...it’s hypersexualizing little girls' bodies."

Stephanie Giese, a mother and a blogger who has written for Huffington Post, has written to several big stores about the inappropriateness of many of the Halloween costumes. She said, "I wrote a post a few weeks ago that went viral where I went into Target with a tape measure and measured the inseams on the clothing for the girls as opposed to the boys, and what I found was that when I measured an extra small in the girls department, compared it to an extra small in the boys, the inseam on the girls shorts was one inch, and the inseam on the boys shorts was seven inches."

"And I’ve been on the phone with the PR department from Target. I’ve also been on the phone with Walmart throughout the past couple of weeks, and they don’t really have a great defense for it at all, other than, you know, well, it’s designs. People are buying it. But what I found when that post did go viral was that a lot of moms responded. I had over half a million responses within just a few days, and a lot of moms said, you know, I bought those shorts, but we wear bike shorts underneath of them or I sewed a ruffle at the bottom. One mom said she bought two pairs and took them to a seamstress," Geise added.

Glenn thinks this issue is just the most obvious example of America's larger problem with objectifying and sexualizing women.

"Kids’ costumes for Halloween is the last stop. This is happening through all of our society, and, you know, our parents, you know, the parents are trying to look like 15-year-olds, and the 15-year-olds are trying to look like 18-year-olds, and everybody’s trying to look like the Kardashians. It’s the media. It’s what we consume. It’s that which you gaze upon, you become. And we are gazing upon trash," he said.

Many of the women in the discussion agreed that it comes down to society prioritizing sexualization over sexy.

Pam Rocker said, "I think there’s a difference between sexy and sexualization. So sexualization means that we’re stripping somebody down to one thing which is how they look, and I think like why does any of this matter? Of course it’s disturbing, but when we look at what that leads to, when we look at what that sexualization leads to, it leads to dehumanizing. And anytime we dehumanize anybody, they’re more vulnerable for violence, which is huge."

The Great Reset is not just an elitist idea — it’s not even a socialist utopian concept. It’s a real-world fascist threat to every American from Wall Street to Main Street. It’s happening now in policies and cultural shifts big and small, obvious and subtle, from environmental promises to corporations going woke. But the mainstream media, global elites, and politicians brushed off the Great Reset as “nothing to see here.” Another myth they push: “The World Economic Forum is just a conference for elites who have no REAL power.”

Glenn Beck first exposed the Great Reset almost two years ago, and the globalist cries of "conspiracy theorist" soon followed. They said he believed the WEF was a “master cabal calling the shots from some evil underground lair.” But Glenn Beck never said that. Instead, he uncovered the true intentions of global leaders in finance and politics by simply highlighting their own words.

This week, the same global elites are doubling down on their agenda at the World Economic Forum’s Davos Agenda virtual event. But still, the global elites — like Twitter’s Jack Dorsey — are trying to downplay the WEF’s influence to stop people like us from interfering with their plans. The oligarchy will prosper in the new world order they’ve designed. You will not.

So Glenn unveils a master chalkboard based on his best-selling new book to outline the threats from globalists and why we must stop their agenda if we hope to keep the precious freedoms we still have.

Kim Iversen, journalist, YouTuber, and host of "The Kim Iversen Show," reacted to Glenn Beck's appearance last week on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" by conceding that, while the subject of Beck's new book, "The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism" might at first sound "a little bit loony," closer analysis confirms "this isn't such a crazy conspiracy theory after all."

"Glenn Beck was on Tucker Carlson's show last week touting what has been called a right-wing conspiracy theory and discussing his new book, 'The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism'," began Iverson on The Hill's "Rising."

"Well, maybe that all sounds a little bit loony — and believe me, I do think Glenn Beck tends to be a loon," she quipped. "But, maybe this isn't such a crazy conspiracy theory after all. And after seeing everything we've seen with the governments enacting all sorts of authoritarian controls and many other conspiracy theories coming true, maybe there's something to be concerned about. So, what is the Great Reset? The name even sounds conspiratorial, but believe it or not, it's a real thing."

Iverson went on to explain exactly who is behind the Great Reset, what their agenda entails, how they are using the COVID-19 pandemic to "to rebuild society in a way the global elites see best fit."

"You'll own nothing and you will be happy: That's what they're saying," Iverson explained. "And with inflation sky high and no signs of it slowing down, they might be right. We are on our way to becoming a nation of renters, but don't worry it's nothing to fear ... don't worry, everything is being done under the premise that this is all ... being done for our own good, the benefit of a collective society, and we will be happy," she added sarcastically.

Iverson concluded by asking, "Who thinks it's a good idea that a bunch of corporate millionaire and billionaires and world leaders are getting together and coming up with what's best for we the little people? I mean, who thinks that that's a really good idea? And who thinks that they are going to be doing it for our benefit? But, of course they're going to frame it like 'Oh, this is good for you. You're going to rent. You'll own nothing and you'll be happy. Don't worry about it' ... When you look at the actual list of partners with the World Economic Forum, they control everything. They control media. They control health. They control business. They control everything, and so then it does become, how do we people fight against that?"

President Joe Biden just had the worst-rated week in the entire first year of his presidency, but his latest poll numbers are the icing on the cake, Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck on the radio program.

Given that polls aren’t always correct, O’Reilly explained another way to prove that Biden's first year may be worse than any other president's before him: It’s impossible to name one single contribution Biden has made to move America forward.

"Biden: There isn't anything you can point to. Not one thing ... that he's done to improve the nation. That's the test. You just step back, take emotion out of it, politics out of it, and say, give me one thing that Joe Biden has done to improve the country. Just one. And you can't do it," O'Reilly said. "And if there is, I want your listeners to contact me at BillO'Reilly.com."

A recent report from Rolling Stone details a public letter sent to Spotify — signed by "270 physicians and scientists" — demanding that the platform implement a "misinformation policy" in response to Joe Rogan's recent interview with Dr. Robert Malone on “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

"This is absolute fascism," Glenn Beck said on the radio program. "There is no safe space. They're coming after talk radio. They're coming after our podcasts. They're coming after our websites."

Glenn said this is this is just one more example of the left's crackdown on freedom of speech and further prove of their ongoing fight against free thinkers or anybody who wants to have an open conversation that may include ideas contrary to what they believe.
