No More Big Tent: We Are the Radicals Now

The average American isn't all that different from generations past --- but the government is. Old school radicals are the "new normal" in Washington, D.C. So who are the "radicals" now and how did the change happen?

Tuesday on The Glenn Beck Program, explained how the radical left embarked on a nearly 40-year odyssey to fundamentally transform the United States.

"Not the Democrats, but the activists --- the hardcore gay activists, ACORN activists, the Tides Foundation --- they put their money and their brains together and came together and said, 'We are not going to win unless we're united.'" Glenn said.

That's when they came up with a plan to infiltrate at every level, taking over boards of directors, school boards, the media and Washington, D.C. The average American --- unchanged and going about business as usual --- had no idea this slow takeover was happening.

Democrats did what Republicans had not been willing to do: accept radicals and revolutionaries into the fold. They pushed out Blue Dog Democrats --- good Democrats like Joe Lieberman --- that would never go Marxist. That ultimately led to the election of Barack Obama.

If that was the Democrat's playbook, but what about the GOP?

"Now, let me show you, this is the opposite of what the GOP is doing," Glenn said. "The GOP is only limiting the people that come in, and they always have. But now they're taking 30 percent of us --- the constitutionalists, the conservative, the liberals and the leaning Libertarians --- and pushing us out."

The Republican party is choosing a restrictive path, radically reshaping what it has stood for historically.

"If you look at what they've done, they've said the Progressive is the most popular. We're going to get rid of the religious and the conservative and the constitutionalist. We'll keep the war and security [voters] because that helps us, you know, still look tough. We'll keep the surveillance thing, but that keeps out the Libertarian who [doesn't like] surveillance. That keeps out the constitutionalist. And also, we want a big government which gets rid of everybody who is at all Libertarian," Glenn said.

In today's political world, the 30 percent or more that are hardcore constitutionalists, conservatives, classical liberals and Libertarians are the new radicals.

"We're still playing the big network of 1950, where the Republicans make us feel like we're responsible for their loss. We're not responsible for their loss. [They're] not listening to what we want to do. [They] haven't created a system that helps me get things done that I want to get done," Glenn said.

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
