Stop saying you're a conservative

Yes, you did read that headline correctly. Why does Glenn think that people need to stop calling themselves "conservative"? Earlier this morning on radio, Glenn spent the entire first hour of the show discussing the history of the Republican party. What has happened over time, is that the people that have called themselves conservatives, aka, the Lindsey Grahams and John Boehners of the world have given the name a bad reputation. Those people have all called themselves conservatives, so now, when you use the word, as Glenn put it, "all of a sudden people say...if you are a conservative, I don't like you. I don't like your policies." This is why it is so important to point out the difference.

If you say you are a conservative, people are tieing you to the Republican party. But Glenn argued that you need to be more specific, saying "I'm a consersative whatever. I'm a conservative Republican. Or I'm a conservative Libertarian." Why is that second word so important? As Glenn said, "Right now, if you just say conservative, it is synonymous with progressives."

Watch more of his theory below:

Rough Transcript Below:

GLENN: Okay. So here is the argument on why it's important. And, again, generationally. Tell me what liberal means.

STU: I mean, as far as what I -- like -- I mean, because I know what the classic liberal --

GLENN: Right. Classic liberalism. In 1918, if I would have asked you, tell me what a liberal means. Small government. Man stands up for himself. Keep the government out of things. Blah, blah. I'll bet you. I haven't done in research. But I will bet you that when the progressives started just calling themselves liberals, the liberals were like, oh, that's not what it means and everybody knows that's not what it means. You do it long enough, and it becomes that.

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: So what's happening right now is the John McCains of the world, the Lindsey Grahams, the John Boehners. The Orrin Hatches have all said, I'm conservative. You say that long enough for a long period of time, all of a sudden people say, no, Pat, you're not a conservative. And if you are a conservative, I don't like you. I don't like your policies. That's why you have to say, there's a difference. Because there is an x and y-axis. The x and y-axis is -- the x is size of government. Left and right. Anarchy and totalitarianism. Then it's conservative and not progressive, but -- what would you call it? Anti-conservative. I don't know what you would call it.

STU: Used to be a liberal.

GLENN: Yeah, it would be called liberal. So not classic liberal. So conservative and liberal.

STU: Right.

GLENN: That's your y-axis. So you have to -- because we're in this time period where everything is confusing. I don't want to identify -- look what she said when Bruce Jenner said, I'm a conservative. Will you call John Boehner and Mitch McConnell?

PAT: Well, he said I'm a Republican. He said I'm more conservative -- he said I'm a Republican.

GLENN: Can you play it? I think he started with -- I think he started with --

PAT: He said at first, I'm conservative, but I'm a Republican.

DIANE: Did you cheer the president? The first president ever to say the word transgender.

BRUCE: He actually was the first one to say the actual word transgender. I will certainly give him credit for that. But not to get political, I've just never been a big fan of him. I'm kind of more on the conservative side.

DIANE: Are you a Republican?

BRUCE: Yeah.

PAT: He says, yes, I'm a Republican.

BRUCE: Is that a bad thing? I believe in the Constitution.

STU: It is interesting though. The two things he identifies as is conservative and I believe in the Constitution. She says Republican, and he agrees with it. But it may -- and it would be interesting to see what his actual views are. I imagine people will dive into them after this interview.

GLENN: I doubt they will. Because it won't help their case. They're just going to smear him. They'll just smear him.

STU: Yeah, they have a weird -- I don't know if they know how to attack this. Because they don't want to make a conservative into a hero. But they do want to make a transgendered person into a hero.

GLENN: Then if they can't smear him, they'll forget him. They just won't do any other stories on him. He's just not interesting anymore. He says, I'm a conservative. She says, you're a Republican? He says, well, I believe in the Constitution.

Will you call John Boehner?

STU: Yeah, would you call John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, and ask them to be active in this issue?

GLENN: So you say you're a conservative, you're automatically tied to the Republican Party. So you have to say, I'm a conservative, whatever. I'm a conservative Republican. Or I'm a conservative Libertarian. I'm a conservative constitutionalist. Are you a Republican? Will you call John Boehner? No, I believe in the Constitution. But right now, if you just say conservative, it is synonymous with progressives. Just the way that the liberals -- they did it to the liberals. I can guarantee you the liberals said exactly what we said. That doesn't mean anything. That's the opposite. Progressivism is the opposite of classic liberal. It will never change. And look what happened.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan told Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday that a network of radical extremist terrorist organizations, which includes Antifa, are coordinating and escalating many of the violent riots in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Lara, who has done extensive reporting on Antifa, said it's "extraordinary" that so many Americans in the media and politics are defending the "very violent terrorist organization."

"[The media is] pretending that they care about journalism. They don't. They care about silencing, intimidating, destroying, annihilating, and getting us all to self-sensor so we don't cover any of the subjects they don't want us talking about," she said.

"For those of us who've followed [Antifa] for a while, and know what they're doing and what their agenda is, what has always been troubling is the way so many people in the media and in the political establishment have given them cover to operate," Laura added. "These are extremists. And you see a lot of parallels between extremists on the left and the right ... they pretty much operate the same way, exactly. And there's no difference between what Antifa is doing and the 'Brown Shirts' of Nazi Germany. Or the 'Black Shirts' of Mussolini."

She read the 10 points of action listed by an extremist group called the "Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement", which culminates with "Liberation begins where America dies."

Glenn recalled a prediction he made approximately 15 years ago, that "socialist, communists, radicals, anarchists, [and] Islamists would all work together ... they would all see the opportunity and work toward the same goal. And that's destruction of capitalism, and destruction of the Western world."

"A few years ago, I probably would not have agreed with you on that," Laura responded. "But I now see that you're absolutely correct."

The Trump-deranged media is calling the president a "coward" because he was moved to an underground bunker as riots erupted outside the White House over the weekend.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to set the record straight. He told Glenn that under Title 18, US Code 3056, the Secret Service has the authority to protect the president however they deem necessary, with or without his consent.

Dan explained that the severity of the White House riots, which resulted in at least 50 Secret Service agents being injured, would very likely have warranted overriding the president's preference on whether or not to take shelter.

"Shame on the media ... for painting this as some kind of situation where Trump ran like a coward," Dan said. "Which is totally false and made-up. [...] They're morons. These are imbeciles with double digit IQs who are only in this to aggravate an already-bad situation. And it's a shame, because they're really incentivizing this kind of stuff to happen."

He also made it clear that the so-called protests over the death of George Floyd were actually "very strategic" riots organized by "Antifa terrorists."

"It was not even a protest. It should have been, and could have been ... but that's not what it was. It was an insurrection. It was a riot," Dan stated.

"I can tell you, from sources of mine that were there, [who are] more than credible and unimpeachable, that the attack at the White House -- and that's what it was over a period of days -- was very organized. It was done using very strategic tactics," he added. "I want to be crystal clear, this was organized by Antifa terrorists. It's not a joke. It's not hyperbole. These were people that were committed to an insurrection that was thankfully put down."

The media has been trying to discredit BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer after he recorded a disturbing video of a man being brutally beaten and stoned almost to death by rioters Saturday evening in Dallas.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to set the record straight.

"The very dishonest far-left media is working tirelessly at the moment to completely, not only discredit myself, but they always say, 'Elijah Schaffer who works for Glenn Beck's BlazeTV.' As if that's an insult. So I'm going to clear the air right now," he told Glenn.

"There was a group of about, I would say 150 rioters. They were not protesters. They were breaking windows. They broke into a bank. They broke into a bar. They were looting alcohol and partying on the streets while breaking glass. These were not people who were grieving over black lives," he added. "The police had lost control of the city."

Elijah went on to describe the violent scene, detailing the events leading up to the brutal beating of a man who was apparently trying to defend a local bar. Elijah posted a video of the incident on Twitter Saturday night.

"Rioters with rocks and bricks and bats and weapons, 150 or more, were accosting him as he stood in front of the bar," Elijah said. "Then they started stoning him, Glenn! Medieval! Throwing rocks and bricks.... We're in America. This is 2020. We do not stone people in the United States of America!"

A new Pew Research Center report shows the death toll in the United States from COVID-19 is "heavily concentrated" in Democratic congressional districts.

According to the analysis, more than half of all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. occurred in just 44 (approximately 10 percent of) congressional districts, and 41 of those 44 hardest-hit districts are represented by Democrats, while only three are represented by Republicans.

"A new Pew Research Center analysis of data on official reports of COVID-19 deaths, collected by the John Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering, finds that, as of last week, nearly a quarter of all the deaths in the United States attributed to the coronavirus have been in just 12 congressional districts – all located in New York City and represented by Democrats in Congress. Of the more than 92,000 Americans who had died of COVID-19 as of May 20 (the date that the data in this analysis was collected), nearly 75,000 were in Democratic congressional districts," Pew reported.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere argued that, while the coronavirus should never have been made into a partisan issue, the study certainly makes a strong statement in favor of GOP leadership.
