Did Louis C.K. go too far with his SNL performance?

While hosting the season finale of SNL, Louis C.K. delivered some pretty daring jokes about racism in America. The routine ignited an uproar on social media, but Glenn thinks he made great points about the mindset of most Americans.

"So I have mild racism. It's benign. It's not aggressive. It's not even negative racism. It's mild racism. I'll give you an example. Like if I go to a pizza place I've never been to before and it's run by four black women, I'll go like, hmm. See, it's very mild. It's extremely mild racism," Louis C.K. joked.

"I heard that and I thought, that's who most Americans are," Glenn said.

He explained that most Americans probably pick up on cues and situations like what Louis described, where he can't help but recognize the race and gender of the people he encounters. And when that doesn't match his preconceived notion of what to expect, he recognizes it.

"You notice, but that's it," Glenn said. "And we move on. It's not a negative. It's just a notice."

C.K. also described the mild racism he might have when he sees a teenager walking around in a hooded sweatshirt, and how he feels, for a moment, different about the person based on their skin color.

"Here's another example," C.K. said. "If I'm at a gas station late at night and a young man comes in wearing a hooded sweatshirt. If he's white, I'll think, oh, he's an athlete. If he's black, unless he has a big smile on his face, then I become mildly racist, and this is what I think, 'That's fine. Everything is fine. Nothing is going to happen.' No, of course, I'm fine. Why did I even think that for a second? Just because I was raised in the '70s. The '70s were a very different time."

Glenn said that everyone should be having conversations like this, because it shows a willingness and desire to move on from the mild racism that many people share.

"This is who we are as a nation. You're like, 'no, I don't want to think that way. There's nothing wrong here. What am I thinking?' That's good," Glenn said.

"Tt's that type of stuff that he does that separates him from so many other comedians. He's so honest and so good at delivering that kind of material," Stu said.

After running through more audio of the routine, including a controversial bit about child molestation, Glenn couldn't help but praise C.K. for his mastery of the craft.

"That had been crafted over a very long time. You saw a master craftsman at work on Saturday Night Live," Glenn said.

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

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.
