Pat Commits Chocolate Blasphemy

Willy Wonka, he's not, but is co-host Pat Gray an actual American?

"You don't like Coca-Cola and you don't like Hershey," Glenn said. "You are not an American if you don't like Hershey chocolate."

Friday on The Glenn Beck Program, co-host Stu Burguiere brought in a basket of Easter candy to sample new flavors on the market.

"You know why all this new candy is coming out?" Glenn asked.

Because it's delicious? Because of capitalism? No, people's tastes are changing. It seems folks these days have a taste for upscale, designer chocolate.

"You've always been that low-rent, Hershey chocolate guy," Pat said.

"Well, excuse me if I don't want to pay $26 for a bar of chocolate," Glenn countered. "Hershey chocolate is not low-rent. It's American classic milk chocolate."

"It is not good," Pat said.

"Oh, my gosh. I am so sick and tired of hearing you and your elitist European chocolate snobbery," Glenn said.

"He's pretty fired up about Hershey, isn't he?" Pat laughed.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:

GLENN: Happy Good Friday. And good Easter coming. The boys brought in some big Easter basket. Jeffy has been trying to gnaw on the basket for a while, but it's actually wicker. You can't really eat the basket.

JEFFY: I know. But Stu said there's grass in there.

STU: There is. There's these new Twizzlers. Grass Twizzlers. Look at this -- if you're watching on --


STU: -- on the TV.

GLENN: Green Twizzlers?

STU: They're green Twizzlers, and they're thin like grass. And they're green apple.

PAT: They're delicious.

GLENN: Are they really?

PAT: Uh-huh. It's good.

GLENN: You know why all this new candy is coming out?

PAT: No. Because it's delicious?

JEFFY: Because of capitalism.

GLENN: Because -- no, people's tastes are changing. And, like, a regular Hershey chocolate bar is not selling like it used to.

STU: Well, there's so many options now. Right?

GLENN: Yeah, like the really upscale -- like, are you eating a Cadbury egg thing?

PAT: Yeah.

JEFFY: Those are good.

PAT: The egg cookie.

STU: I like them too. Cadbury egg cookies now they have.

PAT: So good.

JEFFY: Those were great.

PAT: Oh, my gosh. They're delicious.

JEFFY: What?

GLENN: Cadbury chocolate. Ick.

PAT: They're great. Are you kidding me? Cadbury is awesome.

STU: With the cream inside.

GLENN: No, it's awful.

PAT: It is not.

GLENN: It's awful.

PAT: You've always been that low-rent, Hershey chocolate guy. It's not good.

GLENN: Hershey chocolate is not low-rent.

PAT: Low-rent. It is.

GLENN: No, it's not. It's American classic milk chocolate.


PAT: It is not good.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. I am so sick and tired of hearing you and your elitist European chocolate snobbery.

JEFFY: Boy, that is true there, Pat. That is true.

PAT: It's low-rent Hershey chocolate. That's why it's not selling anymore because it sucks. People's tastes are discerning now. And there's other stuff available.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. I could not let this go. This chocolate blasphemy. I cannot let it go. He said -- are you kidding me?

PAT: No, I'm not kidding you.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

PAT: We've had the Hershey Nestle thing before. We've had that discussion.

GLENN: I know. And Nestle is a European, sucky chocolate.

PAT: I think Nestle -- isn't that American? Nestle is not American?


PAT: It's not that good anymore anyway.



STU: We actually got a bunch of the new Easter candies, for science reasons on Pat & Stu yesterday.

GLENN: Oh, is that what it is?

PAT: Yeah, it was for science.

STU: White chocolate strawberry shortcake M&M's.

JEFFY: Those were good. Those are real good.

GLENN: I'm willing to try that. I'm willing to try that.

STU: Hang on. Try that out. We have Easter grass candy because this is perfect for like --

GLENN: That sounds awful.

PAT: No, it's good.

GLENN: Ooh, the strawberry shortcake M&M's, that's really good.

STU: Really good, aren't they? The grass things, they look like strands of grass for your Easter basket.

PAT: But it tastes like a candy apple.

STU: Yeah. A green apple.

We have Nerds jellybeans. You into that sort of thing?

GLENN: I don't know what Nerds are.

STU: What? You don't know what nerds are? What do you mean you don't know what they are?

GLENN: I don't know what they are.

JEFFY: Are you from America?

STU: They're fruity candies.

JEFFY: These Starburst jelly beans I have here --

GLENN: Are those good?

JEFFY: Good. It's a shame they're all the way over here.

STU: They have cupcake chocolates, which are --

PAT: The cupcake chocolates are really good.

STU: You like those?

PAT: Uh-huh.

STU: They look like cupcakes, but they're actually chocolates. Got -- what Glenn was talking about -- the Cadbury cream egg cookie, so it tastes like a Cadbury cream egg, but it's a cookie. I thought they were delicious.

PAT: Delicious. I can't believe you don't like Cadbury chocolate.

Do you like Dove? Dove chocolate?

GLENN: Yeah, I love Dove chocolate.

PAT: Dove chocolate is really good.

GLENN: I'll take Dove chocolate.

STU: What about Reese's? Because they've got mini -- not Easter bunnies, but Reester bunnies.

GLENN: Reester bunnies?

JEFFY: Yeah, those are pretty good.

Yeah, the other package we had yesterday that's gone now is the chocolate with the peanut butter.

PAT: The, what?

JEFFY: The chocolate with the peanut butter. The Easter bunny that had the dipping container with peanut butter in it.

STU: Oh, yeah.

PAT: It's essentially a do-it-yourself peanut butter bar.

JEFFY: It was good.

STU: It came with a container of peanut butter.

GLENN: That's the new high fashion?

JEFFY: It was really good.

PAT: I guess so.

GLENN: Here, you can do it yourself.

PAT: I guess so. Because it came with this little container of peanut butter, and you had to dip the chocolate in the peanut butter.

STU: Right. And it was weird because you had to break the bunny's body parts off to dip in the peanut butter. So just break off an ear and dunk it in the peanut butter, and then eat it like an animal. It was kind of nice.

JEFFY: They had the chocolate bunny perforated though. It was good. It was perfect. It's easy.

GLENN: I don't like chocolate bunnies either. It's bad chocolate.

STU: Well, not if it's good chocolate.

PAT: Not if it's Cadbury.

STU: It's not the bunny shape that makes the chocolate.

JEFFY: Not if it's dipped in peanut butter.

STU: This is the sort of stuff, Glenn --

PAT: And you know who else is good is Russell Stover.

JEFFY: Russell Stover is not that good.

PAT: It's delicious.

GLENN: No, it's not.

JEFFY: It's not that good.

PAT: Yes, it is. Yes, it is.

GLENN: You have the --

PAT: It is. It's so much better than Hershey. I mean, if you had a Hershey bunny, no, it's inedible.

JEFFY: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: Are you kidding me?

PAT: You're not going to eat that. Nobody is going to eat that.

JEFFY: You lost the crowd now.

GLENN: You are absolutely serious too.

PAT: I am.

GLENN: Hershey is the best chocolate made in America.

PAT: It's not even close. It's not even close.

STU: All the high-end chocolate they have out there, you think Hershey -- I mean, I like Hershey. It's fine.

GLENN: Hershey's milk chocolate? Yes.

PAT: No.

STU: No.

GLENN: You know what you guys are, traitors to the nation.


GLENN: I hope President Trump executes both of you.

Glenn has focused on exposing the dark side of the gender movements waging our culture war, and now, there's a new "trend" emerging as an offshoot to the transgender movement. A growing online community, particularly of men, who consider themselves "involuntarily celibate" or "incels" believe they can live a better life as a trans woman. Why? This community purports the world is rigged against men, particularly against traditionally "unattractive men." What's the solution? Stop being a man...

Incel or "involutarily celibate" communities have existed online in the dark corners of Reddit and Discord for years. The groups are marked by a hatred towards women, blaming them for rigging the world in their favor and denying them of sex. Several members of this growing community have been responsible for large acts of violence, most notably Alek Minassian, who killed 10 and injured 16 after driving a van into a busy area of Toronto in 2021.

However, the transgender movement has presented a new option for incel members: if you can't beat 'em, join 'em... or, in the Transmaxxers' case, "become them."

The online Transmaxxer's Manifesto says, “Since females have the upper hand on the dating market, transitioning from male to female will usually improve your options when it comes to getting sex.” According to the manifesto, transitioning to female not only opens up a different pool of sexual partners, but moreover, you gain access to female-only spaces and are “able to extract resources from males.”

“Since females have the upper hand on the dating market, transitioning from male to female will usually improve your options when it comes to getting sex.”

Another member wrote, "If you do not currently feel like living as a female you might have to work on fixing that ... Identifying as male or being emotionally attached to a male body is bad for you if being male results in you living a bad life.”

This new movement is significant because it is in stark contrast to the mainstream narrative that "transgenderism" is an innate quality. Now, it can be an "option" people choose for social advantage. A moderator going by the alias “Vintologi” on the Transmaxxing Discord server, which boasts over 1,200 members, told The Daily Caller:

Transmaxxing is about transitioning for personal gain rather than focusing on things like "gender identity." ... What matters when it comes to medical transition is whether or not said transition would actually be beneficial, thus the extent to which gender identity is innate does not inform us much regarding when medical transition is appropriate.

One incel member on Reddit lamented that he can't Transmaxx to "have sex with white trans women" and to have "all the benefits of [being] female."

Transmaxxing sheds light on a concerning issue as an increasing number of people, particularly the youth, identify as "transgender." What used to be considered as a "finge case" is now being seen as a social advantage. Glenn recently sat down with de-transitioner Chloe Cole, and the amount of pressure she experienced to become a transgender man AS A TEENAGER was ASTOUNDING. She discussed the new community, friendships, and affirmation she gained when she started her transition journey, and she lost ALL of those social perks when she began de-transitioning. She exchanged affirmation for death-threats, friendships for stone-cold silence.

Transmaxxing is a very specific example of a larger movement that is deeply concerning. Not only is the thansgender ideology problematic on its own merits, but now, we are seeing a rise of a distinction of "social advantage" based on gender affiliation. This is deviating away from the original notion that transgenderism is an innate quality. Now, many consider it more "socially advantageous" to identify as transgender than with your biological gender.

At the same time President Biden's misplaced classified documents were sitting in his house, garage, and office at the Penn Biden Center, a whole lot of Chinese money was flowing around him. Is this just a coincidence, or did the Chinese get anything in return? Investigative journalist John Solomon joins to break down what was going on here ...

Here are 5 RIDICULOUS moments from the Davos summit

Glenn has been warning about the dangers of the World Economic Forum and The Great Reset, which is the WEF's goal to utilize the crises like the COVID pandemic to create a leftist Utopia. Now, these goals continue to take shape at the World Economic Forum summit in Davos. Here are five ridiculous moments from this year's summit that shed light on their ultimate vision Glenn has been warning about.

1. Ex-CNN host Brian Stelter hosts the WEF panel on "disinformation," calling for the criminalization of "hate speech" in the U.S.

The former host of Reliable Sources was fired from CNN in 2022 for raking in the network's worst ratings since 2019. CNN's CEO at the time, Chris Licht, accused Stelter of "drawing ire from conservatives" for misrepresenting the facts and propagating false narratives to demonize conservatives. Licht fired Stelter because he was a liability to CNN's attempt to "re-brand" itself as a "reliable" news source.

You would think the World Economic Forum could have found a more credible host for its "disinformation," than Brian Stelter, and it comes with little surprise Stelter's panel called for the continued censorship of conservatives.

Stelter asked his panel, "How does this discussion of disinformation relate to everything else happening today in Davos?"

Vice-President of the European Commission Vera Jourová answered "illegal hate speech" from right-wing extremists, and then called for the criminalization of hate speech in the U.S., asserting, "I think that we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law" within the EU.

As former Trump advisor Stephen Miller pointed out, Stelter's refusal to further challenge Jourová's call for censorship is indicative of his failed career as a journalist.

2. Al Gore warns of "rain bombs," "boiling oceans," and "xenophobia" as a result of climate change.

Gore's speech "speaks" for itself...

After asserting that we're creating an "open sewer" in the troposphere, Gore exclaimed:

That’s what’s boiling the oceans, creating these atmospheric rivers, and the rain bombs, and sucking the moisture out of the land, and creating the droughts, and melting the ice and raising the sea level, and causing these waves of climate refugees!

Speaking of refugees, Gore blamed the mass migrations of people on... you guessed it... climate change! Of course this leads to "xenophobia" and "fascism," so if we hate "xenophobia" and "fascism," we need to stop climate change IMMEDIATELY. Plus the rain bombs...

Does this sound reminiscent of the "Man-Bear-Pig?"

3. Siemens AG Chairman Jim Hagemann urges for 1 million people to NOT eat meat—predicting a "meatless future."

It wouldn't be a World Economic Forum summit if bugs didn't take center stage. Siemens AG Chairman Jim Hagemann said he was inspired by his 24-year-old daughter to stop eating meat to fight climate change and urged one million people to stop eating meat to balance out jet emissions—like the jets his fellow attendees used to travel to the conference?

Here's what he said:

If a billion people stop eating meat, I tell you, it has a big impact. Not only does it have a big impact on the current food system, but it will also inspire innovation of food systems."

Of course, finding "alternative sources of protein" means... you guessed it... BUGS. The EU is already cutting down on cattle farms and promoting the building of insect farms to initiate this "protein transition."

4. John Kerry calls Davos attendees a "select group" with an "almost extraterrestrial" plan to save the planet.

Kerry's opening speech at Davos shows the type of elitism the attendees believe about themselves. They are the "special ones" who can gather at a Swiss resort town to discuss how to "save the planet" and the "little people" who are too ignorant to have a say in the matter. His words speak for themselves:

When you start to think about it, it's pretty extraordinary that we — select group of human beings because of whatever touched us at some point in our lives — are able to sit in a room and come together and actually talk about saving the planet [...] I mean, it's so almost extraterrestrial to think about saving the planet [...] f you say that to most people, most people think you're just a crazy, tree-hugging, lefty liberal, you know, do-gooder, or whatever, and there's no relationship. But really, that's where we are.

Well, not everyone was amused...

Businessman and conservative Tim Acheson called Kerry’s words, "Liberal delusions of grandeur." Jordan Peterson also tweeted, "Who are you going to sacrifice to save the planet, @JohnKerry -- and do you think and how will you ensure that they have any say in the matter?"

5. Davos attendees traveled on more than 1,000 private jets to the conference.

Greenspace, an environmentalist research group, estimates the total emissions used by Davos attendees on their private jets while traveling to the conference is equivalent to "about 350,000 average cars."

Greenspace also found that 53 percent of all private jet trips were short-haul flights of less than 470 nautical miles that "could have easily been train trips." This comes amid the EU's push to ban short-distance flights and opt for train travel instead, which many continue to point out.

Closing thoughts

What once sounded like conspiracy theories are now taking shape amongst the global elites at Davos. As Glenn continues to shed light on the dangers of the World Economic Forum, here's how YOU can fight back against their goals that threaten our freedoms and democracy.

In honor of the World Economic Forum summit in Davos, we would like to resurrect this gem from Glenn's Instagram archive. If "the Great Reset" doesn't work out, Schwab should consider reaching out to the Bond franchise for a Plan-B career.
