New Research: Babies Learn to Recognize Specific Languages in the Womb

The latest research not only shows that babies miraculously begin language learning in the womb, but they can also recognize the specific language being spoken by their parents.

According to a New York Times article, what babies hear before and soon after birth affects how they perceive sounds, giving new meaning to the idea of a “birth language.”

By the way, research also shows that a fetus is a baby. Take that, science deniers.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

STU: The latest research not only shows that they actually are babies, which, you know, I don't know where anyone would disagree with that, outside of Bill Nye's Netflix show, probably. But they are now saying that babies can recognize the specific language being spoken by their parents in the womb. So when they come out, they are more comfortable with their home language.

JEFFY: Home language. Right.

GLENN: So I have a friend. I just met -- we met him. Andrea is from Italy. He moved here at seven years old. He has never spoken English to his son, who is now ten. He only speaks to him in Italian because he wants the Italian to continue, where he said, "My father never spoke." He said, "I am proudly an American. I am not an Italian American. I am an American." He said, "But I don't want the language to die, and I don't want our heritage to die in our family." He said, "So I started that because I spoke to my son -- you know, when he was in the womb, I would speak to him, and I would talk to him in Italian."

And he said, "The first time he, like, really moved like he recognized anything is after he was born. And I spoke to him in Italian." He said, "He -- he recognized the language. He recognized me."

STU: Yeah, they're saying that when -- they're noticing in international adoptees, where a Chinese mother has a baby, talks in Chinese the whole time, then gets adopted by an American family, they're not as comfortable and react differently to the language.

I mean, listen to this sentence. This is at the end of the story. By the way, language lessons start in the womb is the title of it. So, I mean, it's pretty clear. Talk to your baby. Your baby is picking up useful -- picking up useful knowledge.

Learning. Learning about language, even though they're not actually learning words. It's something they really love. They're loving things, as well. The social interaction -- they're interacting of you talking with them. But they're still storing up useful knowledge whenever they hear speech. Think of all the human things I just described in that paragraph.

GLENN: So let me ask you this, we're doing research on this. How come we've never done the research or really concentrate on the research of the fact that babies can feel pain? Because if they're learning --

JEFFY: I mean --

GLENN: -- you know they can feel pain when they are being cut up.

STU: Of course they can. Of course they can.

GLENN: Of course they can.

JEFFY: This is stuff that we inherently know.

GLENN: Why is it -- is that just too horrible of a thought to think of?

STU: Well, I mean, pro-life people want it done. But pro-choice people can't live with themselves if they think that way, so they don't. I mean, how could you live with yourself, if you knew you were cutting up a being that was feeling the pain.

JEFFY: Which is why they fight having the mammograms before the abortion, right?

GLENN: It's why they put the baby in the closet and just let it suffocate.

JEFFY: Yes. Yes.

GLENN: Nobody -- nobody, but Kermit Gosnell could ever live with themselves by snapping the neck of an infant.

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."
