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.

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.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
