Don’t believe in global warming? Al Gore thinks you need to be ‘punished’

You would think that SXSW would be a place where some of the brightest people could come together and talk about cutting edge solutions to the world's problems. Sadly, one of the biggest stories to come out of the tech conference is a speech by Al Gore claiming anyone who disagrees with climate change needs to pay a price. How is it that the left can celebrate diversity of opinion while at the same time shouting down anyone who disagrees?

The Chicago Tribune reported, "Former Vice President Al Gore on Friday called on SXSW attendees to punish climate-change deniers, saying politicians should pay a price for rejecting 'accepted science.'"

The Chicago Tribune reported that Gore told the audience "we need to put a price on denial in politics."

"I want to ask you, what kind of country and what kind of world do you want to live in? What does the First Amendment really even mean? Do you have a right to free speech? Do you have a right to freedom of thought? Do you have a right to exist if your thoughts are spoken out loud and they happen to disagree with others?" Glenn said on radio.

"This happened at SXSW - a big meeting of high tech entrepreneurs, artists. This is youth. This is the future," Glenn said. "Al Gore has given a speech at South by Southwest and everybody who applauded should have been ashamed of themselves because he said it's time to make climate deniers pay. There needs to be some sort of a fine, a penalty, for those who deny climate change because he's had enough. What kind of fascistic country are we turning into?"

"What the hell is wrong with the people at SXSW, where you stand there like a bunch of rubes or boobs applauding someone saying, 'I'm going to take away someone else's right to disagree with science.'"

Glenn pointed out that our understanding of science and the world is constantly changing and we should not be punishing anyone for asking questions.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.
