Offended by the American Flag? Feel Free to Leave

Four words: AG. O. NI. ZING. That's what co-host Pat Gray had to say about supporters of an Iowa high school basketball team being branded as racists for their tradition of wearing red, white and blue to big games. During the game in question, the team played another school made up primarily of refugees whose supporters were offended by the patriotic display.

"If you're so offended by the American flag, you need to get out. You need to go home," Pat said.

Or, at least, how about a "thanks, America" for giving you a place to live.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Oh, Pat is on a rant. He's on a tirade. Go ahead, Pat.

JEFFY: Oh, my God.

PAT: This Iowa high school basketball game story is so -- it's four words -- ag-o-niz-ing.

JEFFY: Amen.

GLENN: That's not --

PAT: Just those four words --

GLENN: Those are syllables.

PAT: -- sum the whole thing up.

This -- I think they're in the state tournament time. But Valley High School played Des Moines North. And Valley has a tradition of, for big important games, dressing up in red, white, and blue. They wear American flag colors.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. I can already feel the hatred.

PAT: Right? So the other team was all offended by the fact that the students in the student section were dressed in red, white, and blue. Why? Do you not live here too? Could you not have dressed in red, white, and blue, if you wanted to? I think you could. But one of the coaches said, what the hell were they thinking? We're a diverse -- we're a diverse school with a diverse population of students. And?

GLENN: Look, if you move to America and you even come here illegally, you came here.

PAT: You came here for a reason.

GLENN: Why? For a reason. Because we're better than your suckass country that you ran from.

JEFFY: Thank you.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: So even if you're here illegally, there's not some, hey, this is a great country? I don't get it.

PAT: If you're so offended by the American flag, you need to get out. You need to go home.

JEFFY: Yes. And once again, this is another story.

GLENN: I don't understand it. Then why did your family bring you here?

PAT: Right.

GLENN: If it's not a better place, then why did your family come here?

PAT: Listen to this Facebook posting of one of the moms of the other high school: For the supporters of one time from a primarily white part of town to paint themselves as the team of the USA strongly implies that the other team, the less white team is less American. That doesn't say anything about you.

GLENN: Okay. Stop. You know, here's what I would say to her, "Honey, honey, that's you. That's all coming from you."

PAT: Right. That's right. Your sensibility. That's not theirs.

GLENN: If they were holding signs that say white power, we're Americans, you're not, then that's -- then I'll be with you. But from what I know, just wearing red, white, and blue colors as a tradition and you're coming in and you're some other race that I don't understand -- all races are welcome here in America.

STU: And who should like the country more than its own citizens? Refugees.

GLENN: Yes. Refugees and immigrants.

PAT: You look outside and you see there's no ISIS fighters raping, torturing, and cutting the heads off of people, you're in a better place, right?

STU: Right.

GLENN: Are these refugees?

PAT: Many of them are refugees. Yeah.

STU: In the article -- and it's -- you could make the argument theoretically -- and I don't think this would be a argument, but you could make the argument if they had never done this before, but they do it all the time.

PAT: I don't even know then if you could. I mean, it's still not saying anything about you, unless you're taunting them.

STU: Right. Unless you're taunting them.

GLENN: But still, they should be coming in red, white, and blue colors.

PAT: Yes. And they could have. They could have.

GLENN: We just saved you. Our country just saved you. How about a,, thank you, America?

PAT: Agonizing.

GLENN: You're right, four words.

PAT: Ag-o-niz-ing.

From food and job shortages to the prices of building materials "skyrocketing," the world is currently moving into what could be the "perfect storm" for politicians to push for a universal basic income, explained Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"We really need to look at the economy and be prepared for what is coming," Glenn said. "I feel like my job is to warn you of the things that are coming and, when I can, give you ways to navigate around. But at least so you can hear the warning and decide yourself what you're going to do with that."

Glenn explained that now, for the first time, there is a shortage of starter homes and building supplies just as increasing numbers of millennials are in the market. Also, analysts are predicting that shortages of food items and products such as pork, polystyrene, and chlorine could send prices soaring. Then there's the matter of unemployment, kicked off by the COVID-19 pandemic and likely to worsen because of the technological revolution, there are going to be fewer and fewer jobs for people to do.

"We are creating this perfect storm, right now, where universal basic income is going to be embraced by people," Glenn warned. "It's just this nasty cycle that we're beginning, and we're watching it unfold right in front of us."

More than 100 business leaders and CEOs from some of the world's largest corporations recently met during a Zoom meeting to discuss how they can band together to fight "election integrity laws," like the voting law recently passed in Georgia.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck explained how this government-corporation partnership is not only proof of fascism, but it is also demonstrative of how our lives will be under The Great Reset: government and large corporations will work together to set the rules, and the freedoms of the individual American will be squashed.

"I want you to understand ... everything that they have ever said about, 'oh, it's a conspiracy theory' about The Great Reset, you can throw that in the garbage now," Glenn began. "Something happened this weekend that is absolutely unprecedented. I have done this job, for ... I don't even know how many years, almost 50 years, and I've never seen anything like this.

"People that were on the [Zoom] call, they talked about potential ways to show how they opposed the legislation, including ... delaying investments in states. That's blackmail," Glenn continued.

"So these corporations, they're going to act as a — what? A secondary government? ... I don't know. I didn't elect the CEO of Merck. Did you?" he said.

"Corporations [are] openly meeting and coordinating efforts to change laws," Glenn added. "This is fascism, guys! Fascism is when government and corporations work hand in hand. That is fascism."

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."
