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 --

GLENN: Ick.

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.

JEFFY: Yes.

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?

GLENN: No.

PAT: It's not that good anymore anyway.

(laughter)

GLENN: No.

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.

JEFFY: Yes.

GLENN: I hope President Trump executes both of you.

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.
