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.


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?

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests? 

Would you feel safe if your child attended a University that allowed pro-Hamas protests?

 Should Universities allow pro-Israel protests?

Is pro-Hamas rhetoric protected by the First Amendment?

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

Top 5 economic milestones that show HOW BAD Bidenomics has made the economy

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
