What does 'The Walking Dead' tell us about society?

Glenn has fallen in love with a new show: AMC's The Walking Dead. Some of you may be saying, "Gee Glenn, welcome to the phenomena that has swept the country over the four years". I know I am (I've been reading the comics since I was in college). But some of you may have never seen or enjoyed the TV series that takes a brutal look at life after a zombie apocalypse.

The show's fifth season premiere shattered records on both the network and TV history. It brought in 22.4 million viewers, making it the most viewed drama ever on cable. The eight-episode fifth season also beat the NFL on five Sunday nights, a feat that Sports Illustrated called remarkable because the NFL "simply does not get out-rated on Sundays".

After watching the show for the first time, Glenn seems hooked.

"It's really good," he said.

But what does the success of the show say about society?

"So we're watching that and Pat and I have this conversation about I think there's something to the psyche of America that knows that we're in real trouble. And I'm trying to think -- wasn't it the 1950s that the zombie movies were really big?" Glenn said.

"So in the 1950s look what was happening. We were a society that was completely out of control. We were afraid of things we couldn't stop. The World Wars were over and now we're in a Cold War and we could be vaporized at any time. So if you look at the entertainment at the time, it was zombies, it was aliens. They were all things that we just could not control. However, at the same time, you had some lighter fare going on. In the Great Depression, you will see that we went to Frank Capra and Jimmy Stewart," Glenn said.

"Very hopeful movies. Right now there's something in our psyche that I think is really disturbing. Everything that was coming out that people are going for is apocalyptic or, just like the 1930s when we felt out of control, we went to Superman. Now we're going to Ironman. We're going to Captain America. All the old things that show us again, these situations are out of control, mere men cannot fix them."

In essence, Glenn believes the success of 'The Walking Dead' and superhero movies reflect this sense of things being out of control in the world.

Do you agree?

'I REGRET every single step': De-transitioned teen exposes HEARTBREAKING truth of 'gender-affirming care'

Chloe Cole says she began to be "brainwashed" by the gender ideology she saw all over social media when she was only 11 years old. By the time she turned 13, Chloe was convinced that she was a boy, and her parents didn't know how to respond. So they turned to the so-called "experts," who rushed Chloe into life-altering hormone treatments and surgeries. Not only did these experts give "no alternatives" to transitioning, but they lied to Chloe's parents behind her back to scare them into compliance.

Chloe joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to share her heartbreaking experience and to expose the dark world of “gender-affirming care,” which she believes no teen should ever be subject to — from hormone blockers to mastectomies: "This is all wrong. I regret every single step, and this shouldn't have happened."

She also had a warning for parents about what led her to make those decisions in the first place, and she provided some key advice on how to react compassionately to situations like hers.

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."

The Biden administration has weaponized the federal government against the American people. But officials have hidden most of their attacks behind a secretive and cavernous bureaucracy.

There are so many unsolved mysteries that Joe Biden and the Democrats not only refuse to answer, but in some cases appear as though they are ACTIVELY trying to cover up. Like what happened on January 6? Who is Ray Epps? Who planted the pipe bombs? What’s in Biden’s executive order on elections? What happened to the SCOTUS Dobbs leaker? What’s the COVID origin story? What’s happening with crypto, FTX, and the Central Bank Digital Currency?

These are just a few of the unsolved mysteries that we need to DEMAND answers on. On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck outlines a chalkboard that will leave you convinced the DOJ and FBI are LYING to the American people. The more secrets the Deep State holds, the more its power over us grows.
