Conservatives Don't Need Grief Counselors on Inauguration Day

In yet another attempt to shield our youth from the detrimental impact of reality, grief counselors have been brought into some schools for students or teachers having trouble dealing with Donald Trump's inauguration.

"What about the grief of the people who disagreed with you last time? What about those people? They were called names if they disagreed," Glenn said Friday on radio.

The blind hypocrisy and lack of self-awareness is stunning.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: It's going to be hard because they are so blind to the hypocrisy. And quite honestly, it's going to be hard for them because many of us are very blind to our own hypocrisy. What wasn't okay for Obama to do is suddenly okay for us to do because it's our guy. When we say how could they possibly be for this when they were against it four years ago? Where were they then? We can't have people say that about us. We have to be consistent. And like I said, it's going to be hard because in Ohio state today, at Ohio state, they have a safe space for anybody who's afraid of the inauguration.

STU: Oh, god.

PAT: How can you possibly think that's preparing these kids for the world? Are there going to be safe spaces isn't life? Where you don't have to hear anything that bothers you?

GLENN: A safe space.

PAT: I think it's the dumbest thing I've ever heard of in my life.

GLENN: Greg is on the phone. There are counselors in public schools now in Connecticut for today. Greg, are you a teacher?

CALLER: Yes, I am.

GLENN: Okay.

CALLER: By the way, good morning to you and your assembled coworkers.

GLENN: Thank you very much.

[Laughter]

So, Greg, tell me what's happening in Connecticut.

CALLER: Well, you can -- if you dig a little bit deeper and pardon me my voice, I have a cold. But if you dig a little bit deeper, it's not just my district, it's quite a few districts where not only after the election but now with the inauguration, they're charging the social workers, psychologists, and counselors in the schools to provide grief counseling for any faculty or students that are not happy with the state of the nation right now.

GLENN: Greg, was there anything to reach out to those in the last eight years that might have been upset with the direction of the country under Barack Obama?

CALLER: No, and it was -- I was listening to you talk about it eight years ago. Eight years ago I had left my full-time career of 20 years in business to go back to school to be a history teacher, and I was in college at the time that Obama won, and it was complete ecstasy amongst the kids. They were kids compared to me. That I was going to school with. And I think back to that now, and I think now I'm looking at these young people instead of learning to cope with change. They're being -- their feelings are being enabled, and they're never going to learn how to deal with this stuff.

GLENN: Yeah, and it's -- to me, it also says that you're right and half of the country is wrong.

CALLER: Correct. I totally agree.

GLENN: Because what about the grief of the people who disagreed with you last time? What about those people? You were called names if you disagreed.

CALLER: Oh, yeah, and I live in Connecticut, so you can imagine what it was like.

GLENN: Oh, no, eight years ago, I was living in Connecticut.

CALLER: Yes, I remember. I listen to you all the time. I remember when you were doing radio in Connecticut.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. I'm so sorry for that. What were you? Three?

CALLER: Yeah, I wish.

GLENN: Eight years ago if you were in college, then --

PAT: Well, he was older, though.

GLENN: Because I was doing radio in the '90s. It must have been grade school for you.

CALLER: No, I was in my 30s.

GLENN: Okay. I can't work out the math. You're in your 30s now.

CALLER: I'm in my 50s now.

GLENN: Oh, okay.

STU: I was in school and listened to you on the radio.

GLENN: Shut up. My wife was neither junior high or high school, so it wasn't -- you know, I first met her, we first started dating and stuff. She was, like, I used to listen to you when I was a kid. And I was, like, all right. Stop what is that? That's creepy.

Thanks, Greg, for your phone call.

This plays a bigger role than I think we realize. We have to find a way to not -- to not dismiss people's feelings or call them names when we hear about the grief counselors. But we have to find a way to talk to people now and show them that this is not healthy for our society.

If you would have had grief counselors, you know, we're moving into a new studio tomorrow. Sorry. Thinking out loud here.

PAT: Monday.

GLENN: Yeah, Monday we're moving into a new studio for the radio show. Brand-new season. Brand-new president. And I've painted some paintings for the walls. And one of them is the mask of George Washington. The life mask of George Washington. And he's weeping, and you'll see it on Monday. And I call it the mask of civility.

This is a prime example of what that means. The mask of civility. Here we have -- here we have social workers. We have the most caring, the most loving, the ones who understand the human psyche who had no compassion for those who felt their country was being ripped apart. No compassion. They were called outsiders. They were called old thinkers. They were just trying to block progress. No compassion to somebody who said wait. Let's not throw the baby out with the bathwater. Let's remember who we are in the first place. No compassion.

The ones we pay to help teach us to be compassionate. It's the mask of civility.

Now, how do we get that across to people? Because we can either whine about it, bitch about it, call people names, say what babies they are, which is not going to -- nobody will listen to that. And we'll miss possibly an opportunity. I don't know how to get there.

Because my first response is what a bunch of two-faced hypocritical babies.

PAT: Well, yeah, that should be your first response.

GLENN: That's what they are.

PAT: It is. What a bunch of numskulls. How could you possibly think this is good for these kids? Say, yeah. Let's shelter them from reality. Why would you do that? Why?

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
