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.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
