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.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.
