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.

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.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."
