Bernie Sanders supporters 'loud and proud' at Texas State Fair

On radio Wednesday, Glenn talked about the experience two of his staff members had at the Texas State Fair last week. When they asked people to share their thoughts on politics, they couldn't get anyone who was voting for a Republican to go on camera - not once.

"The Hillary Clinton supporters, the Bernie Sanders supporters, they had no problem. They were loud and proud at the Texas State Fair," Glenn said.

What does this say about conservative voters? Are they scared? Ashamed? Something else?

"We have got to start speaking out. The people who change the world are not the ones who are like, 'I don't really want to say anything.' We've done that," Glenn said. "Don't do that. 'I don't want to cause any trouble, I don't want to say anything, I don't want to stick out.' No, shush. Now, speak out."

GLENN: Now, we went out -- we went out to the Texas State Fair. And we asked people, "Talk to us about politics. Talk to us who you're for." We couldn't get anybody that was voting for a Republican in Texas to go on camera with us. Not one.

The Hillary Clinton supporters, the Bernie Sanders supporters, they had no problem. They were loud and proud at the Texas State Fair.

Everybody that stood around made fun of those people. And then when our camera crew said, "You want to come on and talk about who you're for?" Oh, no, no, no.

And I saw the finished piece here just before I went on the air. And I said to the -- to the guys, I said, "What does that tell you?" And they said, "Well, you know, people for the conservatives here in Texas just don't want to go on camera."

PAT: No.

GLENN: What does that tell you?

PAT: They don't trust the media. That's what it tells me. They don't trust anybody.

GLENN: Here's what it said to me. If you don't have the courage of your convictions to go on and say what you believe, we're in trouble. Because they were loud and proud. They come out, "Bernie Sanders. Woo!" Loud. No one else -- in the Texas State Fair, no one would come out and say anything.

JEFFY: Well, you just want to walk around the fair though and have a good day at the fair. You don't want people going, "Hey, there's that guy that voted for Ted Cruz. Ted Cruz sucks."

PAT: And my guess is they don't trust the media.

JEFFY: Yeah.

GLENN: I got news for you -- we have got to start speaking out though. We have got to start speaking out. The people who change the world are not the ones who are like, "I don't really want to say anything." We've done that. Pat, you and I have done that for our whole career. We learned our lesson a few years back. Don't do that. I don't want to cause any trouble. I don't want to say anything. I don't want to stick out. No, shush. Now, speak out.

We've got to start standing for what we believe. And if you don't know what you believe, you have to question with boldness, even the very existence of God, with honest questioning and find out what it is you believe and begin to stand.

Because tough times are coming. And as Newsweek said, we're all socialist now.

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."

The World Economic Forum isn't trying to hide its plans for the Great Reset. Details to "reset" the global economy have been published on its own website. Despite that and all the warning signs, many are still quick to refute this master plan as a "conspiracy theory" or as something that will never actually take hold. But as Glenn Beck explained on the radio program Monday, the Great Reset is happening right now in Europe. A huge new development for the Great Reset that could affect not only European businesses, but American ones as well. Businesses — and citizens — may be forced to comply sooner than you think.

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself and he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded in physicality and stop taking so much for granted.

Hanson joined Glenn on the latest "Glenn Beck Podcast" to point out that this needs to happen soon because, as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting pretty bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

In the clip below, Hanson shares a crucial lesson that woke America has forgotten — but surprisingly enough, President Donald Trump never did. Watch the video clip below or find the full podcast here or wherever you listen to podcasts:
