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.

Michigan barber Karl Manke isn't a troublemaker. He's a law-abiding citizen who did everything possible to financially survive during the COVID-19 lockdown. pandemic. Eventually, he had no other option: he had to reopen his business in defiance of Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's stay-at-home orders.

In an interview on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Manke, 77, told Glenn, "I'm not backing down" despite Whitmer's seemingly vindictive attempts to shut down his business.

Shortly after reopening, Manke was ticketed for violating Whitmer's stay-at-home order and charged with a misdemeanor. When he still refused to close his doors, the governor's office went a step further and suspended his barber license.

"It's kind of a vindictive thing," said Manke. "I've become a worm in her brain ... and she is going full force, illegally, when legislatures told her that she was out of place and this was not her assignment, she decided to take it anyway."

On Thursday, the Shiawassee County Circuit Judge refused to issue a preliminary injunction against Manke. Read more on this update here.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."
