Glenn's Mysterious Valentine's Gift to Tania: 'Generations Will Fight Over This'

It's a dream come true --- for Glenn. He has literally wanted to give Tania this gift for years. Admittedly, it's one of those gifts that may be more for him than her.

"I mean, it's the closest to my heart. When I think of my wife, this is what I think of," Glenn said Tuesday on radio.

What did he get her? A custom art piece of his favorite photograph made entirely of duct tape.

The piece was done by Chance Foreman, an artist and staffer for TheBlaze.

"I want this man to be known. I think he is one of the greatest artists. . . . beautiful stuff.

STU: We just saw the present.

GLENN: Right.

STU: And I think your description of it is actually perfect. She is going to react that way. And it is as great as you said.

PAT: It's great. It's great. But she's going to say, "I don't that want. I don't want that in the house."

GLENN: Get it away from me.

STU: But knowing that you predicted this completely accurately, I believe, why would you go ahead with it if you think she's going to react that way?

PAT: Well, that's the question, right? That's Glenn Beck though.

JEFFY: That's the answer to your question right there. That's the answer to your question right there.

GLENN: What does that mean?

JEFFY: That's the answer to your question.

GLENN: What does that mean, exactly?

JEFFY: It means that you have decided that this person needs this.

PAT: That this person needs this.

JEFFY: And you've decided your reasoning behind this person needing it overrides the entire outcome of that other person.

STU: That's a great description, Jeffy.

GLENN: No, that's not --

STU: It's sort of a dictator sort of thing to do.

PAT: It's the risk big, win big type of mentality. If she does like it, it's a huge win.

GLENN: I have another reason because one of my children asked me, you know, what are you thinking?

(laughter)

And I said, "I guarantee you for generations in this family, they will fight over this."

JEFFY: Absolutely.

GLENN: That's -- that is the reason. Because this is everything -- to me, everything she is. And I think the children and the grandchildren and everyone else in the family will recognize that. And they will fight over it.

JEFFY: You can have it, mom always hated it.

GLENN: That's exactly right. That's exactly right. And if she dies first -- if I die first, the kids better run to the house.

(laughter)

They better to the run to the house. Because that thing will go out the door.

STU: Or it could stay in the house into the fireplace. I think that's possible.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. It's possible.

STU: It's possible. But it's great. I mean, it's really cool. I can't wait to tell you what it is. And you might need to actually see it.

But I do expect her to react that way.

GLENN: So should I call her. She can't come in because she's working. But I can Skype her.

STU: You're going to Skype her, her Valentine's Day present. You are a romantic.

GLENN: I asked her to come in. She's like, "I'm not coming in." I said, I mean, it's Valentine's -- I have a Valentine's Day gift.

She's like, "I'm not coming in."

STU: See, I think part of this is how uncomfortable this moment is and should be for you.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Is part of your justification for it being so amazing. Like, the fact that it makes you uncomfortable adds to, look at what -- what has been done here. This is such an extraordinary effort. You should probably appreciate it.

GLENN: Right! Right.

(laughter)

You get it. Right!

STU: I don't know if she's going to get it though. That's --

GLENN: No. And neither will I.

STU: Yeah.

(laughter)

INSANITY: High schooler ARRESTED after not wearing mask at school tells her story

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

Jason Whitlock: Raiders coach fired by NFL as a ‘SIGNAL’ to others

Raiders Head Coach Jon Gruden was forced to resign (fired) by the NFL on Monday due to 'misogynistic' and 'homophobic' language found in several of his old, private emails. But Jason Whitlock, sports writer and host of 'Fearless' on BlazeTV, tells Glenn that Gruden's words never should have resulted in his job lost: 'We should have accepted his apology and kept it moving.' But instead, Whitlock says the NFL chose to use Gruden as a 'signal' for all other employees who may oppose the football organization's current, far-left political stances: 'Taking over sports, taking over the NFL, is crucial to the goals of the left and what they're trying to do.'

How an ‘orchestrated’ revolution is bringing America TO ITS KNEES

Victor Davis Hanson, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, joins Glenn to discuss his new book, 'The Dying Citizen.' He explains how America's hippies from the 1960s are the progressive elites running our institutions today and how their 'well orchestrated' moves have created a top-down revolution that's 'bringing us down to our knees.' So, what's the solution? Davis Hanson tells Glenn what we can do to push back against the far left today…

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

Who Is More Evil: Government or Facebook? | Robby Soave | Ep 120

The Left and Right agree: Social media companies like Facebook are abusing their power — whether through censorship or harmful, groupthink-creating algorithms. But is the solution really more censorship and regulation, like government fearmongers and leftist "whistleblowers" have insisted? Glenn sits down with the senior editor at Reason, Robby Soave, who has a much more refreshing solution laid out in his latest book, "Tech Panic: Why We Shouldn't Fear Facebook and the Future." Politicians have weaponized the fear we have about social media. So, maybe we should be looking at the positives. Glenn and Robby take a look at the (very familiar) history of tech panic and censorship, balance the consequences of changing Section 230, and expose the real threat to the future of free speech: Progressive tyranny entrenched in the old school media.
