What is the difference between a Social Democrat and a Progressive?

In advance of the Tuesday night Democratic debate, CNN invited Glenn and other recognizable figures to submit a question for the whole group of candidates.

On radio Tuesday morning, Glenn shared with listeners the question he chose to submit and why.

"Can you tell me the difference between a Progressive and a Social Democrat? And tell me the difference between those two and a Constitutionalist," Glenn said.

Watch the clip below to find out what Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders said, which prompted this question.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors.

GLENN: Hillary Clinton says she's an early 20th century progressive. Bernie Sanders says he's a social Democrat. Can you tell me the difference between a progressive and a social Democrat, and tell me the difference between those two and a constitutional. Maybe I should rewrite that question for them to kind of dummy it up a little bit for them.

But, I mean, she has said she is an early 20th century progressive. He's just come out recently and said, "I'm a social Democrat." I don't know if the average person knows what those two mean. And I can't tell you what the difference is between a social Democrat and a progressive, and I've studied progressives. What's the difference between the two? And what's the difference between a social Democrat and a regular Democrat?

PAT: Yeah. It's worse than social Democrat, it's Democratic socialist.

GLENN: Ah, you're right. You're right.

PAT: Which is right?

STU: Another question I would like -- asked. This is the type of things they would do to Republicans, but on the other side. Do you think it should be legal to abort a baby one minute before birth? And if not, when is the line? I would like to know --

GLENN: They'll never ask that.

PAT: No, they won't.

STU: But that's the exact type of thing they do with rape and incest. Here's the biggest outlier, the smallest percentage of abortions, can you defend that position? You know, the worst possible crime, would you still say no to abortion.

GLENN: Yeah. John Wayne Gacy walks in. And he's -- he needs to buy a gun. But you don't know it's John Wayne Gacy.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: Do you sell him the gun?

PAT: Right.

GLENN: What? No. Well, of course, it's John Wayne Gacy. So, but you don't know that. Okay. So I don't have a problem. So you're fine with him going and molesting and murdering children?

STU: Right. That's what they do. And I want to see Hillary Clinton come out and say, yes, one minute before birth, you can abort that baby.

PAT: She would never say that. She would turn it around on Republican positions.

GLENN: The only one I'm interested in hearing is Bernie Sanders.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I'm really interested in hearing Bernie Sanders. Do you have any of the audio? I didn't hear it yesterday.

STU: You want his album?

PAT: Oh, his songs are good.

GLENN: I got it. I don't want that. No.

PAT: Are you sure?

GLENN: Yes, I'm positive. What I'm looking for is where he's talking about being a social Democrat.

PAT: Yeah, Chuck Todd asked him about it the other day.

CHUCK: You joked about the idea when people call you a socialist, you say, yes, I'm going to make everybody wear the same color pajamas.

BERNIE: Especially you.

CHUCK: Especially me.

BERNIE: I have a pair of pajamas just for you.

CHUCK: I hear you. And then the other day, I noticed you said, you know what, don't use the word "socialist." I'm going to say I'm a progressive. Are you pushing back on that? Are you embracing, I'm a European socialist?

BERNIE: No. Look, when one of your Republican colleagues gets on the show, he'll say, are you a capitalist? Have you ever referred to them as a capitalist?

CHUCK: Yeah, are you a capitalist?

BERNIE: No. I'm a Democratic socialist.

PAT: Jeez. Isn't that amazing?

BERNIE: But what I mean, I've been elected as an independent throughout my political career. I am running now in the Democratic nomination process and will support -- I hope to win. I expect to win.

CHUCK: But you'll support the Democratic nominee?

BERNIE: I will.

GLENN: No. We can't have a president that sounds like you, Bernie. Your policies could be horrible; they could be wonderful. Most Americans will not get that far.

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."
