Millennial Caller Nails the Generational Shift and Coming Death of the GOP

Obama recently spoke to a predominately black audience on Capitol Hill, saying low black voter turnout would be an "insult to my legacy." Glenn challenged listeners to call in and defend Obama's statement, if they could.

While not a defense, caller Jordan from Missouri made a spot-on comparison:

I don't want to hear it anymore from white conservatives saying that, you know, the black population just always votes against our interests. I'm sorry. White conservatives do the same thing.

Jordan noted how establishment Republicans have done nothing for their conservative constituents in decades while demanding their votes every election season.

"You know, when I saw this, I didn't put those together. I'm glad you did. That's an interesting point," Glenn said.

Jordan also had plenty to say about his generation and the future of the Republican Party.

GLENN: Jordan would like to defend President Obama. Hello, Jordan.

CALLER: Hello, I'm just going with Stu's point. Glenn, to be honest, besides your show and Pat & Stu -- every other -- well, virtually every main conservative talk show radio host is doing the same thing. You know, the Republican Party has done nothing but hurt conservatives over the past 25 years, and they're demanding you must come out and support in record numbers Donald Trump or else Hillary Clinton will get in.

PAT: That's a good point.

CALLER: They're doing the same thing.

PAT: That's tough to argue with.

GLENN: You know, when I saw this, I didn't put those together. I'm glad you did. That's an interesting point.

CALLER: So I just -- I don't want to hear it anymore from white conservatives saying that, you know, the black population just always votes against our interests. I'm sorry. White conservatives do the same thing.

GLENN: Hmm.

PAT: And would you have ever said that before this year?

CALLER: Oh, no, no.

PAT: No, I wouldn't have either.

CALLER: I'm a millennial. And I don't think people understand how much damage this is doing to my generation. I don't want to vote Republican anymore. I'm a Libertarian conservative, and this has just thrown everything out the window.

GLENN: I will tell you, Jordan, I was having a conversation with somebody just this weekend on that. What people don't understand is there such a shift -- generational shift that the Republicans are thinking short-term, win this election. They don't have any freaking clue as to what's happening in the next generation. And this is a -- you want to talk about building a wall. This election is a wall that I don't think millennials will ever be able to hurdle. They will never -- they don't want to hurdle it. They don't want to climb over it.

JEFFY: Right.

GLENN: It has made this -- you remember in the 1970s, there was a difference between like the Honda Civic and the big, huge, like, Pontiac Bonnevilles. Honda Civics are now, strangely, even though they're Bonnevilles, they're strangely the Democratic Party. They're cooler -- the Republicans have become the Pontiac Bonneville, 1972, 1978: Completely unrelatable.

CALLER: Well, Glenn, this also isn't just politics. Even spiritually and religiously -- I mean, I'm a very church-going person.

GLENN: I know. I know.

CALLER: But to see the churches come out and support Donald Trump, I mean, it hurts millennials trust of even organized religion.

GLENN: I know.

CALLER: And so just people don't understand what my generation is looking at this, and how it will kill the Republican Party long-term, like Ben Shapiro says.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: I know. I will tell you, Jordan, I am so glad that you are listening to this program. I am so glad that you called in.

You are exactly right. It is the next step in everything you thought you could trust has become liquid. Everything -- the churches that are playing the old game. There is a mind -- there is a mind shift, a paradigm shift of thinking that people need to understand. And it is between people my age plus and millennials. And they don't think this way.

CALLER: And like you've talked about in that show, Mr. Robot, the biggest thing that the millennials are seeing, is the inconsistency. Where somebody says, "You need to take these pills, but I'm not going to do it myself." The millennials are watching --

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah. You're exactly right. Thank you so much, Jordan. I appreciate it. Great phone call.

PAT: He was.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
