The Democratic Party is Split

Reviewing the latest polls from this weekend, Glenn and his co-hosts discussed some of the problems the Democratic Party is facing on radio Monday.

Glenn pointed out about 20 percent of Democrats support Donald Trump --- and this could be pretty problematic for the Democratic Party.

"The Democrats are in trouble," Glenn said. "Their party has split and no one is willing to talk about this."

He explained why he thinks this is happening.

"There are many Democrats that don't feel America should be knocked off its perch," Glenn said. "They believe that we are a country that has done more good than has done bad. But that is not the feeling you get from many Democrats that run the progressive or revolutionary wing of the Democratic Party."

Rubio leads by five over Hillary. Cruz leads by four over Hillary in Iowa. In New Hampshire, Rubio by 12, Cruz by four, over Hillary. Trump trails her in both states.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

PAT: Yeah, because I just said that stat about 30 percent of Republicans would never go out and vote for. This is in Iowa, would never go out and vote for Trump. And people are responding, well, that means 70 percent would vote for Trump. Yeah, that would be the worst number in history. If only 70 percent of a party would vote for their own nominee in a two-person race, that would likely be the worst number in history.

GLENN: It would be a bloodbath. People don't see it coming. It would be a bloodbath, even with Hillary, I think could be the lowest turnout of all time. Because there will only be a small percentage of both parties that are really diehard gung-ho.

STU: There will be a lot that really dislike the other party's nominee though.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: This would be one of those where -- I mean, there would be a lot of people motivated just out of, I can't stand the other person.

GLENN: Well, but you also have to take into account that there are that Democrats that do like Donald Trump. There are 20 percent of Democrats that say -- and this is where a lot of his support is coming from. I love these constitutionalists. This guy on Facebook, you know, accused me of -- "I used to listen to you because you were the Tea Party. You were the guy who was telling us about the Constitution. Now you're giving up on Donald Trump, and you won't vote for him."

I love the comment. So he said, "I hope that when Donald Trump becomes president, he deports you."

STU: Where?

PAT: That's very constitutional.

GLENN: Very constitutional. That would be the kind of constitutional powers that Donald Trump and his supporters do understand.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: But, anyway, let's look at Donald Trump and his Democratic support here. What does this say? This is the real story. The real story is how weak Hillary Clinton is and how much trouble the Democrats are in. The Democrats are in trouble. Their party has split and no one is willing to talk about this. The party is a party that has left all of the New Deal Democrats away. They don't have anyplace to go. You have to go to a socialist and, quite honestly, people who many people think hate America. You have to go on that apology tour.

So here's what's happening with the 20 percent that will go over to Donald Trump. And I mean this with respect for Donald Trump and for those 20 percent of the Democrats.

He's a huge progressive. If you look at what he has always believed historically -- and please don't tell me about, "Well, he's changed." Show me his pivot point. Everybody demanded a pivot point from Mitt Romney on these things. And you couldn't show one. I could only show the one on abortion. Couldn't show a pivot point anywhere else with Mitt Romney. He just said what he had to say to get elected. And we now know that's true because of what he has said after the election. He was saying whatever he had to say to get elected. Pivot points matter.

But the press has been lying about this race. They've been spending all this time talking about the split in the G.O.P. But the real split is the Democrats. The New Deal-style Democrats that actually -- now, here's the key -- that actually love their country but also love big, progressive government, have no place to go.

It isn't un-American to believe in big government or universal health care. But the Obama Democrats hate Israel, don't believe in our traditional allies, don't believe in our traditions. They have openly rejected God at the conventions. They are openly against guns. And let's be honest, want confiscation. The president has said so. We should pattern our gun laws after those in Australia and in England. That was gun confiscation.

There are many Democrats that don't feel America should be knocked off its perch. They believe that we are a country that has done more good than has done bad. But that is not the feeling you get from many Democrats that run the progressive or revolutionary wing of the Democratic Party.

So it's not a place that many Democrats, that I know, the Democrats that I like, the Democrats that I just -- I don't understand how they voted for Obama the first time, they now don't understand how they voted for him either.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."
