WARNING: We are losing our youth to the progressive agenda

here is a serious problem in this country, and it’s only going to get worse and worse. Addressing it could alienate neighbors, friends, and family members. But at some point, you have to stand up and say enough is enough. This generation of young adults is critical to the future of America, but they are being lost to the progressive agenda. It’s essential that today's youth be rooted in the principles that founded this country, yet we are willing to ship them off to schools and universities that tear down the pillars of faith and distort and diminish American history. Will you stand?

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it may contain errors:

Glenn: And I want to have a conversation with you about how I believe we're losing the youth in our country to the progressive agenda. No, beyond that. Beyond that. We're losing them to flat-out darkness. And we have to work together to save them.

I want to talk to you about something that I think is a serious problem and a serious problem that is going to get worse and worse. I think we're going to lose a lot of -- we're going to lose a lot of friends. And we're going to lose a lot of -- of our children. And we're going to lose them anywhere from high school to, you know, 30. And colleges will play a role. Schools will play a role. But our churches will also play a role. And it is because I think we're talking about things. We're trying to teach them. We're not doing. We have to do things. Our churches have to be involved and doing things. It's not enough just to meet in a building and talk for three hours or one hour or 20 minutes. It's not enough.

We have to be involved. We have to actively be engaged in the things that change the world. Actively be engaged in changing ourselves. Changing our families.

Too many of our kids are growing up and they're looking at us like we're hypocrites. And why? Why is that happening? Because times have changed. A, this is a different group. The millennials are different people. They're not like us. They're not like the generation that went before us, which is the checkbook generation.

This group of -- this generation that is coming up, these millennials, they want to change the world. They're as idealistic as we used to be. Except we played within the system. They didn't grow up with the system. Everything that they grew up with was a disruption to the systems that had been built by generations before.

They're the Napster generation. They're the Apple generation. They're the i Phone generation. They have disrupted from the beginning. So they're not looking for a system that is going to help them do it. They just want to do it. They'll do it themselves.

They'll gather together in their own groups, and they'll go. What do you mean you need -- you need permission to do this? You need permits to do what? You need to get the church council together. No, let's just do it.

Our kids are going to colleges, and our kids are being deprogrammed. They're being -- they're being brainwashed. University of Berkeley California -- and not all colleges are like this. But University of Berkeley California -- they are now saying that they have to ban phrases and ideas. Phrases like, I think the most qualified should get the job, is racist. And so they're banning that. Well, you ban not just words, but thoughts, the next thing you'll be banning is books. And the step after that is a bullet to the head. That's not hypobole.

That's historic fact. Pat and I were talking -- we both taught -- we both taught at school -- I mean, at church. And we both taught Sunday school. And we both taught the teenagers. Now we're seeing these teenagers go to college, and a few of them have been lost at college.

PAT: A college you would think is pretty darn safe too.

GLENN: Yeah. They're going to a college from their church, and at the college from their church, they're turning to atheists. How is that happening? How is that happening? There are real problems, and this is happening in all of our churches with all of our kids.

Now, I think there's two groups -- this, I believe, is the chosen generation. If you don't believe that, that's fine.

This is the chosen generation. I think this generation coming up is the most valiant, and they're going to be the ones that have to -- they'll be the ones that do it. The generation before mine screwed it up. My generation, beginning of my generation, we're the ones that now have to look at it and go, okay, jeez, how are we going to fix this? We're not going to be able to fix this. It will be the one coming up right now that will fix it. They'll fix it. But we still have to make sure that they're not listening to the generation that screwed it all up. They're listening to the ideas and the principles that are eternal that built us in the first place.

And those are very unpopular ideas. And they're going to become more so. And our churches will come under attack. Mark my words. I'm doing a roundtable today with constitutional experts and experts on the Supreme Court. We're going to talk about the Supreme Court rulings that still have to come out and the ramifications of those rulings. How are they going to affect our churches? I'm telling you right now, we will lose 50 percent of our membership in our churches.

And not because of some policy, but because there just won't -- they won't be willing to stand. And not against something, but for something. I'm not against gay marriage. I'm for right of conscience.

You can't tell me -- if I can't tell you who to love, that's fine. You can't tell me what my church must accept. It's a right of conscience. It's something that we all used to understand. You didn't go to war if you were Amish or if you were -- if you were some -- in a religion that preached against war. If you were a Quaker, you could not be drafted. Period.

If you were a Catholic, they didn't have that teaching. You cannot be forced to go against your conscience. And every American should understand that. That's a fundamental bedrock principle of being an American. What you choose to do is your choice.

You can't preach that I'm going to kill a bunch of people. You can't go out and kill a bunch of people. You can't do those things. But we have different ideas, and especially when it comes to religion, my religion is what -- is what motivates me. Some people, their religion, and I mean this sincerely, their religion is global warming.

They worship the planet as if it's God. Okay. I don't have a right to ban that. I don't have a right to tell them that they can't think that way. I can speak out against it, and they can speak out against my God. Okay.

Why don't we instead leave each other alone. Why don't we instead urge people to stand up for what they believe in. Why don't we instead urge people to have a reasonable debate, a real debate, not one with name-calling, but with actual facts.

One where both sides can go, wait a minute. Hang on just a second. I didn't know that fact. That might change my argument a bit.

Isn't that the way we're supposed to behave? Not banning ideas. Not banning phrases.

We're going to lose 50 percent of our congregants. And if we're not careful, we'll lose our children. If you don't go to bed at night -- I have a 9-year-old and a 10-year-old and two 20-somethings, and I will tell you, I go to bed every night, and I pray for them. I pray that they keep their feet on the right track. I know -- there are times that I break out in a cold sweat thinking about what my children are going to have to face in this life. And I don't mean destruction or anything else. I just mean life. It's not like I used to have to deal with.

The things that they have to deal with. The evil that is out there. God help us. And God help our children.

We can't do it alone. We have to stick together. We have to teach our kids the fundamental principles, but by living them.

Let me go to -- let me go to Travis in Wisconsin. Let's take some phone calls. Hello, Travis. You're on the Glenn Beck Program.

CALLER: Hi, Glenn. I'm a big fan. I really didn't care much about all of this politics and everything that's been going on in the world until I was right around the election when Barack Obama first came into office.

GLENN: Right.

CALLER: And began watching your television show and you talked about things like, they're distorting history. They're changing history. And all that stuff. I thought to myself at first, I thought, well, gosh, how can you change history? It's already happened. But when you talked about the reeducation and losing the youth and all of that, it makes perfect sense. I mean, I have a daughter, she's starting college this year. I've been involved in her education for years now, doing her homework with her, involved with what they're teaching her. She brought home assignments on global warming based on articles that were written in 1997. And they're teaching that stuff as though it's fact and it's truth. The other thing is, you know, the worst part of it all is college. She's starting college this year. And I'm going to stay involve with what they're teaching her.

GLENN: Good luck.

CALLER: Because true education and critical thinking is a threat to their ideology.

GLENN: Uh-huh.

CALLER: And that's what they're teaching in college, is the ideology of liberalism, socialism, Marxism, communism. These kids are being taught that they're smarter than everyone else because they have a college, quote, unquote, education. But a real education teaches critical thinking, weighing pros and cons before you make a decision. They're being indoctrinated into an ideology that, I mean, they -- they don't weigh pros and cons when they make decisions. They make their decisions based on the ideology and how it fits with the ideology that they've been instilled with.

Anyway, my girlfriend who's got a son who was raised going to church every Sunday, raised with conservative values. He spent $40,000 on a college education -- $45,000 on a college education. He's come out an atheist. He has -- he's come out a complete socialist liberal. And it's very difficult to talk to him because he doesn't even understand the principles that you're trying to talk to him about in contrast to what they've put in his head.

GLENN: I will tell you, Travis, thank you for your call. Is there anybody within the sound of my voice that if I said, hey, I'm going to destroy your kid. I'm going to undo everything that you have worked so hard to do. I'm going to undo it all. And I'm only going to charge you $45,000.

[laughter]

Would you pay that? We're looking at college at, what will they do for the kid?

PAT: Can I give you 50?

GLENN: You can give me 50. How about 75?

PAT: Okay. All right. That's even better.

GLENN: Okay. We're looking at college and what they'll do for your kids. Let's look at the actual results. What are they doing for your kids? What are the odds of them going in and being debt-free, of them going in and getting a great job because of that -- of that degree, and look at how they've done it. What they do is they bring you in, and they've taught the kids -- we have -- we have -- we've allowed them to learn that they're special. They're absolutely special.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Okay. Now, at their most vulnerable point, when they move out away from mom and dad, and they're the most afraid and in a society that is pretty damn scary -- I don't know if I'll get a job. And I'll be in all this debt. What does the University say to them? You're so special. In fact, you're so special, you're smarter than mom and dad. You know things more than mom and dad. So when mom and dad have said, you have to buckle down. You have to learn these things. You have to learn these principles that we have -- they look at mom and dad, who are now no longer cool, they're looking at mom and dad who are sitting there and they're trapped in their dead-end life -- I don't want to live like mom and dad -- and they've gone to church with mom and dad, but that doesn't really affect mom and dad.

I see mom and dad breaking the principles that they talk about in church all the time. They're not really living it. They're not changing the world. They're not feeding the poor. They're not doing these things. You know what, this will feed the poor. These ideas, yeah, they're radical, but they will feed the poor, because I want to do something about it. And the way I can do it is I'm special. All I have to do is hold a sign up. All I have to do is create this new revolution. All I have to do is stand up for the things that have already destroyed us and gotten us into this debt because I'm special.

How much you willing to pay for that, mom and dad? $45,000 is not enough. I could find a place a little more expensive for you. Because what they're doing to your kids is absolutely fantastic. This is probably worth -- it's probably worth $100,000. $400,000 for four years. I mean, to really get it done right, you'll probably have to spend four years and 400 grand. It got to the point with my child, she wouldn't even talk to me on issues. We've always been able to talk about anything in my family. While she was at college, she wouldn't even talk to me. She would get so upset. She would be like, I can't even talk about it, dad. Can't talk -- where is this coming from? Hang on just a second. I've got the university on the phone. They want me to help them build a library. I can't wait to do that.

PAT: Which actually happened.

GLENN: It actually happened. After they had a rally against me at her university, they actually called to see if I could help them out --

PAT: So you were able to pay the 45, plus be disparaged, and have them hit you up for a big donation.

GLENN: I was lucky enough my daughter got a scholarship, so she paid for her own way. Congratulations. And I didn't have to pay -- I think maybe I paid a year.

PAT: So you just got disparaged, and they hit you up for extra cash on the side.

GLENN: Yes. Yes. And they gave me the opportunity to almost lose my daughter.

PAT: They indoctrinated her as well.

STU: So don't make us wait. How much did you give?

JEFFY: Thank you. How big is the library? How big is it?

GLENN: Oh, I gave them something quite large.

STU: I bet you did.

[laughter]

GLENN: I just -- I just want you to know, and I can't go into specifics here because humans are involved. People are involved. Friends are involved. But Pat and I have direct stories right now with kids who have been lost. And it breaks our heart. We don't even -- these are great, valiant kids. And it's not like -- you know, it's one thing to say, you know, I don't believe in mom and dad's church. I'm going to find another church. No, no, no. They no longer believe in God.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."

Glenn Beck has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just to have everyone look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China … the list goes on, but no consequences are paid. Now, the media have called the election for Joe Biden and insist no one can question it. But for many of the more than 71 million people who voted for President Trump, our search for the truth isn't over yet.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn called out the left's long list of alleged corruption that has gone unchecked and stressed that Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process of investigating the multiple allegations of election fraud to ensure our voting systems are fair.

"I don't know about you, but I'm tired. I am worn out. I am fed up!" Glenn said during his opening monologue. "I've had enough. I am tired of exposing corruption, doing our homework, even going overseas and having documents translated to make sure they're exactly right, [and] presenting the evidence ... except, once we expose it, nothing happens. Nobody goes to jail. Nobody pays for a damn thing any more!"
