Glenn: I’m a liberal...

Don’t panic, Glenn has not pulled an Arlen Specter and flipped ideologies. However, Glenn feels most Americans can identify with one political label not in use much these days: classic liberal. When someone says they’ve been a classic liberal and they voted for JFK back in the day, chances are they are nothing like the progressive liberals of today.

"If you look at the field, you can't say this about Jeb Bush, but Rand Paul. Rand Paul should be the choice of the real left. He should be the choice of the -- I shouldn't say the left. The classic Libertarian. We have to -- you know we put Progressive back into the lexicon for knowing what it was. We got people to stop calling liberals Liberals and started calling them Progressives. I really think we have to start calling ourselves classic Liberals. It is the secret, it is what we're missing. Because most Americans agree. You can't spy on me. We shouldn't have these never -- you know, these never-ending wars. You can't just throw me in jail. You can't kill me without a trial. All of these things. Those are the positions of the classic Liberal. Classic liberalism is what makes America unique. It is what makes us -- it is the reason why the Progressives took that. They took it for a reason. They took that title away for a reason. Why? Because that can't be a choice. That is the choice. That is the choice that unites most of us. That's the one where we all come down together and say look, we can live with each other. Classic liberalism. We need to be classic Liberals. I'm not a conservative, I'm a classic liberal."

"Once you understand what a Progressive is you start calling them that, you've got to take the word liberal back and let them be and wallow in their Progressiveness."

Pat seemed pretty skeptical about the idea of suddenly taking on the mantle of "liberal", but Glenn said that it's what Libertarians need to do in order to bring in people who would never align with conservatives.

"But to me, and I know you don't feel this way, there's nothing wrong with a Conservative title. I don't mind it. I like it. I'm fine with it. I'm conservative. I am. I'm a constitutional Conservative. So I don't have a problem with that title. So I do have a problem with liberalism so it's kind of a -- it's a leap too far for me," Pat argued.

"And here's your thing. You're going to miss about 20% of classic Liberals on the left that just cannot go to the conservative. I don't want to go to the conservative. I can't call it because it's -- it's the GOP.

That's Jeb Bush. You'll never get them. So we're just going to accept that? Or are we going to be the bigger ones to say, look, you can call me whatever you want. I know that classic liberal, I know that I can talk about classic liberalism and I can get the people who think like we do, they may not agree on everything, but they think like we do," Glenn said.

Watch the debate unfold below:

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.
