There's an incredible story behind Glenn's sweater

Glenn is notorious for his unique wardrobe and he especially loves when people send him handmade pieces of clothing. A fan named Ruby spent nearly 2 years carefully crafting a sweater with everything from the family dog to stained glass windows. Glenn talked with Ruby on radio today - great conversation.

GLENN: So glad you're here. Let me go to Ruby in San Diego. Hello, Ruby. Are you there?

RUBY: Hi. You wondered if I'm still around, I am. And you made my day by wearing that sweater.

GLENN: Ruby, you're the lady in San Diego that made this sweater for me. You took you like three years to make this sweater, did you not?

RUBY: Well, it took me about a year to figure out the pattern and another two years to get it put together, that was with the surgeries.

GLENN: I just -- I love you. I love this sweater. I just love this sweater.

RUBY: I am so glad. I'm just -- I'm very proud of it.

GLENN: Yeah. You made it for me, three years ago?

RUBY: It was -- I gave it to you in April of 2012.

GLENN: Okay. And we're trying to figure out -- because I see Raphe and Cheyenne, but do I have the theory right that Raphe and Cheyenne are here?

RUBY: Yes.

GLENN: This is Victor on the other side. And then is this Tania walking to the house and I'm in the sweater, or is this me with the kids?

RUBY: Well, I never even thought about it that way. It's actually meant to be you. But if you look at -- under the hat, there's one stitch of white temple.

GLENN: Yeah. I see that now.

RUBY: It's you.

PAT: See, you didn't make him nearly fat enough. That's why we didn't recognize him enough.

STU: She may have thought the sweater was going to stretch.

GLENN: That's really not -- I was looking at it this morning, Ruby. This is really amazing. I looked at the church on the back, and the stained-glass window, I mean, I don't -- I don't know anything about knitting, but I don't know how you did it. It is really truly a tremendous sweater, and I thank you so much for it.

RUBY: Well, thank you for appreciating it. I was thrilled to make it for you.

GLENN: You bet. Thank you. God bless.

PAT: Really nice.

GLENN: She is so great. You know, I got this sweater out of the closet this morning, and I put it on. And I was thinking about all the people that has made us quilts and things. The homemade stuff that people send us is truly so meaningful. And I want you to know, if you've ever sent us stuff, we do keep it, and we appreciate it because we know how much time it has taken for you to make it.

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.
