Why are they putting sex in a box on television?!

There is a difference between creating a new television concept, and just plain stupidity. WE TV is going for stupidity instead of trying to change television for the better. This Friday, February 27th they have a new show premiering called Sex Box. While it might seem like some creative title for something that is not sex in a box, it is in fact just that. Sex. In. A. Box.

This is the point where I bang my head onto my desk and lament what Homo sapiens are producing. Really?! There is nothing better that we as a species can come up with?

Glenn took to radio to discuss this new "show," saying, "Can you hear, I hear, it's the hoofbeats of the four horses of the apocalypse. I hear them just off in the distance." While I might not hear the horses of the apocalypse, I completely agree that this is insane. Why is this show under the guise of "couples therapy" promoting sex on television? I just don't understand how a couple having sex in a box, putting on robes, and then discussing their problems with the three weirdos who were just listening to them go at it is going to solve anything.

Stu brought up the truly horrifying aspect of this, "Actually it seems like the real problem TV has with it is that it's not good. It's just boring. They have no problem with people having a bunch of sex in a box on television it's not just as enticing as we thought it would be."

To add fuel to the fire, they have a pastor on the show. As Glenn said, "I love the fact that they put a pastor on and they also said, we're changing lives. Like all of a sudden it's a mission." What pastor thought that this was a bright and responsible idea? Glenn had an answer for that, "The one who says this, if I don't do it, somebody will do it."

Listen to Glenn, Pat, and Stu mock the heck out of this waste of electricity show below:

Rough Transcript Below:

GLENN: Oh, finally, finally, it is here. The new TV show Sex Box. Oh, man.

PAT: Oh, good. It debuts tomorrow night?

GLENN: Quiet. Turn off the music for a second. You guys hear that? Can you hear -- I hear -- it's the hoofbeats of the four horses of the apocalypse. I hear them just off in the distance.

PAT: Yeah, I hear them.

GLENN: They're just about here. New TV show called Sex Box. It's a show about people having sex in a box.

PAT: And then they put on robes and come out and sit down on the couch and talk about it.

[laughter]

What could be better than that? I'm gathering the family around tomorrow night, and we're going to have some popcorn and watch Sex Box and learn some things tomorrow night. I can't wait. I'm all over this.

GLENN: Now, I want you to know, they're going to talk to three experts, and women and children is going to say things like, I don't know, I think this is just dreadful.

[laughter]

STU: Wow, that's an innovative.

PAT: What a concept.

GLENN: Quote, each of the three expert hosts are, quote, uniquely annoying.

PAT: I bet they are.

[laughter]

GLENN: The laughs ensue.

PAT: And what are they experts on, by the way?

GLENN: Sex in a box.

PAT: Okay. All right. You did it wrong. I mean, how do they know? Are they looking, watching? I don't think that's the deal. The box seems to be as transparent as the Obama administration.

GLENN: Right.

[laughter]

Which is not.

PAT: Which is not. So...

Do they listen to their relationship problems afterwards?

STU: I think so. Before and after. Right? So you kind of get them set up. Hey, so what's wrong? Give this a whirl. How did that come out? Was it good? Great. Thanks for coming in. That type of thing. It will be great.

JEFFY: They need to be more receptive to each other.

PAT: Have you tried communicating? Well...

GLENN: TV experts are saying it's all really about, quote, the hullabaloo. The hullabaloo? The what?

STU: I don't know. Actually it seems like the real problem TV has with it is that it's not good. It's just boring. They have no problem with people having a bunch of sex in a box on television it's not just as enticing as we thought it would be.

PAT: You know that will be the deal in the media. They'll belittle the parents and the parents television council who are opposed to having sex in a box in front of our children on television. They'll make fun of those people.

GLENN: You are such a Puritan. Hello, Mr. Pilgrim.

PAT: I know. I do think it's funny that the New York Daily News declared the show has ruined sex and boxes for that matter.

[laughter]

That's pretty funny. That's a good line.

Critical race theory: Struggle sessions

China has a rich legacy of torture. During the Cultural Revolution, the Chinese Communist Party used a variety of torture techniques. These became more and more advanced over time. This included public humiliation and public executions.

One specific kind of public humiliation is what's called "The Struggle Session." It was a punishment reserved for people who committed wrong-think. The point was to publicly degrade the person until they swore allegiance to the Communist Party. Their focus is on the elimination of the power base and/or class position of enemy classes or groups. It was also a warning to everyone watching: If you don't bend your knee to communism, you will be destroyed.

If you don't bend your knee to communism, you will be destroyed.

It was a way to punish anyone who so much as disagreed with Communist Party dogma.

These struggle sessions often took place in busy areas.

They also took place at universities, like the struggle session for the professor You Xiaoli, as recounted by Anne Thurston, in Enemies of the People:

You Xiaoli was standing, precariously balanced, on a stool. Her body was bent over from the waist into a right angle, and her arms, elbows stiff and straight, were behind her back, one hand grasping the other at the wrist. It was the position known as "doing the airplane." Around her neck was a heavy chain, and attached to the chain was a blackboard, a real blackboard, one that had been removed from a classroom at the university where You Xiaoli, for more than ten years, had served as a full professor. On both sides of the blackboard were chalked her name and the myriad crimes she was alleged to have committed...

The scene was taking place at the university, too, in a sports field at one of China's most prestigious institutions of higher learning. In the audience were You Xiaoli's students and colleagues and former friends. Workers from local factories and peasants from nearby communes had been bussed in for the spectacle. From the audience came repeated, rhythmic chants ... "down with You Xiaoli! Down with You Xiaoli!"

"I had many feelings at that struggle session," recalls You Xiaoli. "I thought there were some bad people in the audience. But I also thought there were many ignorant people, people who did not understand what was happening, so I pitied that kind of person. They brought workers and peasants into the meetings, and they could not understand what was happening. But I was also angry."

Struggle sessions have been revived, and exported to America. They come in many forms.

Forced apologies.

Beatings in public—like the mob attack on Rand Paul.

Or the 12-year-old boy who was sucker-punched.

Or the 12-year-old boy who was stabbed for being white.

Anti-racism seminars, like the one in Seattle.

Or the one involving Sandia Labs executives seminar.

The long-awaited New York Attorney General's report on the sexual harassment allegations against Gov. Andrew Cuomo is out — and it is bad for Cuomo. The Democratic AG concluded that the Governor did sexually harass multiple women during his time in office.

On Tuesday's radio program, Glenn Beck questioned is the AG's report would be enough for Democrats to condemn him and call for his resignation? This is what the #MeToo movement was started for, Glenn noted, if Gov. Cuomo doesn't resign quickly, that says a whole lot about today's Democratic Party.

Critical race theory: The education trap

The fall semester isn't far away. If you aren't prepared for that, someone else is. Predatory behavior. The most important takeaway from this piece is, whatever is happening on campuses right now is what is going to play out through the rest of society in about 30 years. We're seeing it right now with Critical Race Theory.

It started on the campus. It started in the classroom. And our children are set to be the next victims in the cultural warfare for a nightmare that seems like it will never end.

Colleges are manipulating the system.

It's a little ironic that colleges are overflowing with Marxist professors who preach the Gospel of Karl Marx in their classrooms, because academia in America is the perfect example of capitalist achievement. If anything, colleges are manipulating the system in a way that should make Marxists furious. And they hurt the people that Marxism is supposed to rescue.

Colleges are an enterprise. They are Big Business. It means nothing to them to send thousands of students into debt—not if it means the campus will get a new fountain or another office for the Diversity and Inclusion department.

They'll never admit it, but a big part of their problem is that they have put so much into the myth of progress. They can't even admit that it's a myth. Because it's useful to them.

Roger Scruton once said:

Hence the invocations of "progress", of "growth", of constant "advance" towards the goal which, however, must remain always somewhere in the future.

In reality, they don't give a damn about actual progress.

That's how they have turned academia into instruments of social engineering. They use college to change society.

Their purpose is no longer educational. It's social. They're using the classrooms to cause social change.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere were joined by Pat Gray to discuss "woke" Olympic athletes.

In this clip, the guys discussed how "bravely" some athletes are for threatening to protest the national anthem, for twerking on stage, and for showing off how woke they are.

Glenn reminded America of actual bravery at the Olympics when Jesse Owens won the gold medal at the Berlin Olympics. "He [Owens] was oppressed," Glenn said.
