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)

Marxist Methods: Debunking the Left's LIES About Critical Race Theory

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

'They believe their job is to REMAKE your child': WSJ writer warns public schools may be LOST to woke trans activism

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

Is California ‘PURPOSEFULLY’ destroying this small business?

It seems like some politicians are purposefully trying to destroy the lives and dreams of certain Americans, specifically small business owners. Dave Foldes spoke to Glenn over six months ago after THIS audience raised thousands of dollars for his restaurant that refused to close: Cronies Sports Grill. Now, despite making progress in his administrative battle against LA, the city of Agoura Hills, California is coming for Cronies instead. And the reasoning is INSANE. But Foldes isn't giving up, and neither are his supporters. It's the ultimate David vs. Goliath showdown.

Trans Activism Will End Your Parental Rights | Abigail Shrier | Ep 110

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it is incredibly dangerous. Just ask Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier. Her book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — just like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, Shrier argues it could end your parental rights for good. She is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy number one to the activists. Recently, the American Booksellers Association even called sending her book to others "a serious, violent incident." Abigail joins Glenn to lay out just how slippery this slope has proven to be and what we — conservatives and liberals — must do to protect our children.
