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 --

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.

More than 100 business leaders and CEOs from some of the world's largest corporations recently met during a Zoom meeting to discuss how they can band together to fight "election integrity laws," like the voting law recently passed in Georgia.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck explained how this government-corporation partnership is not only proof of fascism, but it is also demonstrative of how our lives will be under The Great Reset: government and large corporations will work together to set the rules, and the freedoms of the individual American will be squashed.

"I want you to understand ... everything that they have ever said about, 'oh, it's a conspiracy theory' about The Great Reset, you can throw that in the garbage now," Glenn began. "Something happened this weekend that is absolutely unprecedented. I have done this job, for ... I don't even know how many years, almost 50 years, and I've never seen anything like this.

"People that were on the [Zoom] call, they talked about potential ways to show how they opposed the legislation, including ... delaying investments in states. That's blackmail," Glenn continued.

"So these corporations, they're going to act as a — what? A secondary government? ... I don't know. I didn't elect the CEO of Merck. Did you?" he said.

"Corporations [are] openly meeting and coordinating efforts to change laws," Glenn added. "This is fascism, guys! Fascism is when government and corporations work hand in hand. That is fascism."

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."
