Who really should have been named Person of the Year? Here are some much better options...

On radio today, Glenn lamented how political correctness has ruined what was already a ridiculous feature, the TIME Person of the Year issue. Now it’s never an actual single person, it’s always a particular group. Glenn had a couple nominations of his own - Constitutional Lawyer Jonathan Turley was one and perhaps more surprisingly, Michael Brown was the other.

"If you look at Michael Brown, I think that he is a candidate for person of the year because he has dominated the news. His act of illegal activity in the first place is being excused. And that's where society is going. He then turned on a cop. Threatened a cop. Was in a scuffle with a cop. Gets killed. Nobody pays attention. Because of him, we now have protests, but we also know that there were African-Americans that came up to the grand jury to testify, but those African-Americans were too afraid of their own community. Just about every story you need to tell in America can be told with the Michael Brown story," Glenn explained.

"You tell the Michael Brown story, and depending on how you tell it, on what part you focus on, you know, you can tell the lies that America is the most racist place in the world."

Pat made a strong case for Jonathan Turley, the lawyer for the Republicans in their suit against President Obama which claims Obamacare is being implemented illegally. The catch? He's a self-proclaimed liberal.

Pat explained, "How about Jonathan Turley? A constitutional lawyer. A guy who voted for Obama. But a man who puts the Constitution above partisan politics and is now the lead attorney for Republicans in their suit against the president right now because of his unconstitutional activities. So he's a guy who respects the Constitution, defends the Constitution. There aren't very me of those who will put all of that ahead of politics."

More nominations came in from callers during the show.

Franklin Graham

"My recommendation for person of the year is somebody that's a real renaissance man and a real warrior. He goes -- a lot of his work is done under the covers. But the biggest thing that he's done for us as a nation is that he's sat at the gates and looked Ebola in the face and said no. Those Ebola doctors, they answer to him."

Benjamin Netanyahu

"And my nomination for person of the year would be Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel. What he did is very, very bold and shows great character. And it's hard to be a leader in these times. And, you know, he should be really recognized for what he did and still standing up and standing alone as a lone wolf against Hamas and pretty much the whole Middle East, as everyone else in the world has abandoned him."

Barack Obama

"Yes, I think Barack Obama should be listed because he's got Putin talking to himself. He just can't believe that he got man of the year because Obama has destroyed the country by destroying our Constitution and Putin couldn't get it done."

Dave Barton

"I'd like to nominate Dave Barton for his work in Common Core. Because if we lose our kids, we lose everything."

Chris Paronto

"He was one of the operatives in Benghazi. He's one of the three that has written the book, Thirteen Hours. He's the most outspoken. It seems the more they throw at him, the more he stands firm. And he says, oh, no. This is what happened."

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."
