What Happens When Progressives Take Over a City?

Progressive cities may look great, but they're cities of disorder. Why? Because progressives want to control everything and, in the process, destroy law and order and everything that makes a city run smoothly. What advice did Glenn give to a caller considering a move to either Austin or Boise, both cities run by progressives?

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: You know, a really good example, we're just talking about Austin, Texas. Just a great city. Great city. And some of the greatest cities in America are these big progressive cities. The problem is the progress takes over like California, and they destroy it because they're not good at law and order. They're not good at understanding business and taxes and everything else. They're good at all of the arts and the beauty and everything else. They're really good at that. And that's why all the great cities in America, I think, are progressive cities because they look great. They're beautiful. They're fun to be in. But once you're there, you see what sanctuary cities become just a city of disorder. And you can't do business there. You don't want to live there because of all of the laws. The conservatives are good at law and order, and they're also good at freedom of leave me alone. And if we can just go back to a time when we were getting together and be, like, okay. You can bring that to the community and leave me alone on all the rest of the stuff, and I'll leave you alone. If we can just leave each other alone, we would be fine. But progressive cities want to control you. And that's the problem. Lori, quickly, you're on the Glenn Beck Program.

CALLER: Hi, Glenn, yes, you know, my husband and I are looking to move to Texas or Boise, Idaho, but now listening to you today, I'm not sure where to turn. We want to get out of California. We're heading towards Texas or Boise, Idaho. But after listening to you today, I just don't know.

PAT: Still better.

GLENN: Texas is great. I have a ranch in Idaho, so I live in the summer in Idaho, and I love Idaho. Just know that the progressives from California have transformed Boise, Idaho and have also started to take a route here in Texas. We need good conservatives to move in and be strong and push back because the Californians have destroyed California and now they're, like, oh, I hate California for what it's turned into but look at this place. It's beautiful. Let's turn it into California.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.
