GLENN

A Glenn Beck Tragedy in Chocolate

Hershey's or Cadbury chocolate? That is the question. While some may prefer the English-born Cadbury chocolate egg, Glenn is an all-American Hershey's man through and through. In fact, he's never even tried a Cadbury chocolate egg. Despite his co-hosts efforts (and in light of the strict diet he's following), Glenn refused the Cadbury chocolate confections during radio on Wednesday. Once a Hershey's man, always a Hershey's man.

Enjoy the complimentary clip or read the transcript for details.

STU: We discovered something tragic today in that Glenn Beck, who says he believes in American culture --

JEFFY: Oh, my gosh.

STU: -- for some reason has never tried a Cadbury cream egg, which seems impossible.

JEFFY: What!

PAT: Preposterous. It's preposterous.

GLENN: No. The cream sounds -- is this the one with the white and yellow in it?

STU: Yeah, the fake yolk inside.

PAT: Yeah, deliciousty. It's deliciousness.

JEFFY: The caramel one.

GLENN: No. No. That looks just gross.

STU: It's so good.

PAT: Oh, the caramel ones --

JEFFY: The caramel ones are the best.

GLENN: Yeah, the caramel --

PAT: We need to send whoever got these back for the caramel ones.

JEFFY: We should have asked for the caramel ones.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: First of all, I don't like Cadbury chocolate.

PAT: What! Oh, you are nuts.

GLENN: No. I know that you -- I know that you think I'm a low-class chocolate eater because I love Hershey's chocolate.

PAT: You love Hershey's.

STU: It's okay to love Hershey's chocolate. But also you would try other chocolates. This is a national treasure.

GLENN: Yeah, I would. I know. I'm not going to -- I got to get back to my strict diet. And I'm an all-or-nothing guy. If I break it here, I'll break it.

JEFFY: Glenn, Glenn.

STU: This is essentially an egg.

GLENN: No, it's not an egg.

JEFFY: This is for the show. This is for the show. You know how many diets I've lost and gone off of, thanks to these shows on this network?

GLENN: I know. You would be in a hospital. You would be anorexic if it wasn't for this show. I know, Jeffy.

PAT: Glenn, this is filled with protein. It's an egg. It's nothing, but protein.

GLENN: Okay. Open it up. That looks so gross.

STU: It's supposed to look like an egg, except it's really just sugary creamy goodness.

Okay. So we also have the Cadbury cream egg cookie. (?) I win $10,000.

JEFFY: Walmart salad.

GLENN: Did you hear about the Walmart salad with the bat in it?

PAT: That was done on purpose.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Had to be. But can you imagine -- can you imagine opening up a salad bag and having a bat in it?

PAT: No. I think I would take it back to the store.

GLENN: You think so?

PAT: I think so. I think so. I'm going out on a limb there, but I think I take it back to the store.

GLENN: So I would want to own the salad company.

PAT: Yeah. I'll tell you this --

STU: So they would give you some extra protein.

PAT: I tell you this, I would ask for my 1.97 back.

GLENN: Okay. So you find a spider in it. Okay. You're not going to -- a bat. How did you miss a bat?

PAT: That's weird.

JEFFY: I don't know. I might get a little upset about a spider too.

STU: Oh, my God, these Cadbury cream egg cookies are so delicious. Oh, my God.

JEFFY: They are so good. The eggs are great too. Glenn. Glenn.

STU: A little yolk coloring.

GLENN: Yeah, no, it looks like you're taking a fried egg and then dipped it in chocolate. That does not sound good.

STU: Ooh, we should try that next. That sounds delicious.

TV

WATCH: The DIVIDED States of America: Is It Time for a National Divorce?

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

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.
