If Bruce Was Never a He and Always a She, Who Won the Men's Olympic Gold in 1976?

ESPN has gone all in on diversity and the insanity is at a fever pitch. In a recent 30 for 30 documentary podcast on the 1992 Olympics, Dan and Dave, the stars of a massive Reebok advertising push, were interviewed about their experience. In the interview, the two dared to call Bruce Jenner a he even though he was still calling himself a he at the time.

This prompted ESPN to add this disclaimer to the podcast:

One note, this episode features references to legendary decathlete Caitlyn Jenner. First to be referred to as Bruce in regards to her decathlete career.

Wait a second, is there a legendary athlete named Caitlyn Jenner in the record books?

"They put a disclaimer at the beginning of this podcast to tell you that they're calling him Bruce when he was Bruce. However, even when Bruce or Caitlyn now says he wants to be referred to as Bruce, they still feel the need to tell you that it's Caitlyn and Caitlyn was the famous decathlete from the 1970s," Stu said on radio Friday.

"If Caitlyn Jenner --- if Bruce Jenner was a woman in 1976, which is what we're supposed to believe, we should strip the medals away from Bruce Jenner because Caitlyn was performing in the wrong decision... If Caitlyn Jenner was actually Bruce at the time and was a woman, that would be against Olympic rules to compete in that division."

This really should be a non-issue or at least not a complicated one, but somehow diversity has made everyone second guess everything.

"ESPN has gone --- and it's the Disney mentality. They've just gone nuts. They've just gone nuts," Glenn said.

"But it's not that complex. You're saying she is wrong. She was always a she and never a him, no matter what he says. By the way, don't you ever call him a him when it's her because of his choice to be her."

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

STU: And since we're coming off bathroom talk, maybe we should start with the 30 for 30 documentary on the decathlon that just came out. ESPN just launched a podcast for the documentaries on that topic, and they tell great stories from sports history. They're really well done. Pat and I both love them. But I listened to the first one, which was about Dan and Dave. Do you remember Dan and Dave in the '90s? It was a huge --

PAT: Athletes. Expected to win the gold and silver for the Olympics.

STU: In 1992 in Barcelona. So Reebok, at the time at the time were competitors with Nike trying to raise their profile dumped $25 million into this ad campaign for these two guys that no one had ever heard of and built a rivalry leading up to the Olympics. Well, the whole story is -- I mean, it's a great story because they dumped all of this money in it, and it really didn't work out. Although, there are parts of it that did, and the documentary covers all the ins and outs of it. But when you're talking the decathlon and the Olympics, you're talking about Bruce Jenner, though. Bruce Jenner is the guy when you're talking about American history. 1976, he's the guy.

PAT: He was on Wheaties boxes. He was a household name. He was a major brand in and of himself. I mean, he was an American Moore.

STU: And I don't care --

GLENN: Notice the way we're even talking about this. We are discussing Bruce Jenner as if he's dead.

JEFFY: Was. Yeah. Was.

GLENN: He was a household name.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: So the Bruce Jenner that we grew up with is dead.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: He has been reborn as Caitlyn, and in order to talk about him as a man, it has to be past tense.

STU: Right. So but when you're talking about him in that past tense, even if you are a person who says I'm calling them -- I'm calling her Caitlyn now, and you're fully onboard with that, you still refer to him as Bruce when you're talking about 1976; right?

GLENN: Yes, you have to.

PAT: And here's what they did. This is either Dan or Dave. I'm not sure.

>> I remember eating lunch with Bruce Jenner and Bruce kept telling me. Only thing people are going to remember is the Olympic games. And I thought to myself, man, this guy's crazy.

PAT: This guy is called Bruce. This man.

GLENN: Wait a minute. Are you saying that he's in trouble for this?

STU: Well, listen. There's another clip. I think we have Dave as well talking about this, Pat.

Well, it's interesting. Jackie Joyner-Kersey made the comment that I could be the next Bruce Jenner. And that is what I was striving to do, you know, most of my career. He was the hero that we all wanted to be in 1976, and he was the golden boy.

GLENN: This is all accurate.

PAT: Golden boy, hero.

STU: That's how you would do it; right?

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Even if you were completely onboard.

GLENN: Now here comes ESPN.

>> It's the story of a 1992 Reebok ad campaign 25 years ago this summer unlike anything anyone had seen before. Reebok spent some $25 million on the campaign featuring two top decathletes. A sum equal to their prior year's marketing budget. Those who remember the story remember it as a bust. But there are many more twists and turns along the way for Reebok, the two athletes, and the sport of track and field.

STU: All right. I'm ready.

>> One note, this episode features references to legendary decathlete Caitlyn Jenner.

PAT: Wait. What? Legendary athlete? There is no legendary decathlete Caitlyn Jenner. Look it up.

STU: You're not going to see it.

PAT: You're not going to see it.

>> First to be referred to as Bruce in regards to her decathlete career.

PAT: In regards to her decathlete.

>> So she prefers to be referred to as Bruce.

STU: They put a disclaimer at the beginning of this podcast to tell you that they're calling him Bruce when he was Bruce. However, even when Bruce or Caitlyn now says he wants to be referred to as Bruce, they still feel the need to tell you that it's Caitlyn and Caitlyn was the famous decathlete from the 1970s.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

PAT: We're rewriting history.

STU: We're rewriting history. Caitlyn is not in the record books.

PAT: There's no legendary decathlete named Caitlyn Jenner. There just isn't one.

STU: If Caitlyn Jenner -- if Bruce Jenner was a woman in 1976, which is what we're supposed to believe, we should strip the medals away from Bruce Jenner because Caitlyn was performing in the wrong decision. This is absolutely false advertising by her; right? If Caitlyn Jenner was actually Bruce at the time and was a woman, that would be against Olympic rules to compete in that division.

PAT: ESPN is ludicrous. They're ludicrous.

GLENN: ESPN has gone -- and it's the Disney mentality. They've just gone nuts. They've just gone nuts.

STU: I mean, I can understand. If you want to be onboard and say, hey, it's Caitlyn now, and I'm going to call her a her. Whatever she wants, we're going to do. But to change history and say there was a legendary decathlete named Caitlyn Jenner is just ridiculous.

GLENN: I don't have a problem with the disclaimer just because of all the people who can be it upon themselves to say I'm going to be the sentinel and the guardian for Caitlyn. I have no problem with the deal saying, hey, this story involves now Caitlyn Jenner who prefers to be called Bruce for this time period of his life. And then leave it at that. But what they did is they're being the guardians and basically saying, hey, we all have to accept him as her now because that's what he prefers. But he also prefers -- she also prefers to be called him for this time period, but we're not going to listen to that because we know better.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: That's crazy.

STU: They're saying Bruce is wrong.

GLENN: Yeah, they are.

STU: That's how it comes off.

GLENN: Their bigotry is showing here.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: They are not about "Oh, let's celebrate our diversity, and let's celebrate how each of us can make our own way and decide who we are. No. She just asked for you to call her him for this time period. Now it's complex.

PAT: It is.

GLENN: But it's not that complex. You're saying she is wrong. She was always a she and never a him, no matter what he says.

By the way, don't you ever call him a him when it's her because of his choice to be her.

STU: Because I think you can take it they put the disclaimer in to push aside liberal complaints about it.

GLENN: Yes, I agree.

STU: You can say that. However, the way they phrase it.

GLENN: The disclaimer is fine. But he starts with this includes Caitlyn.

STU: Legendary decathlete.

GLENN: That's in violation of what he just asked you to do.

PAT: Right. Right. So what -- I think they're covering their butts for other transgendered persons who don't feel the way Caitlyn Jenner does.

GLENN: Aren't we supposed to celebrate diversity?

STU: No. Absolutely not. Not in this circumstance.

GLENN: Aren't we supposed to celebrate what you want to do as an individual?

PAT: No.

GLENN: It exposes that as an absolute lie, and it exposes ESPN as nothing but cowards. Just cowards. This is not the only one, though. Have you seen the ad -- I don't even know. Who is running it?

PAT: NCAA is running it.

GLENN: NCAA. The one. Are we talking about the same ad where they're saying --

PAT: The gender thing?

GLENN: Yeah. Gender doesn't play sports?

PAT: Yeah, listen to this. By the way, these are a whole bunch of different women playing sports here.

>> Enough.

GLENN: Uh-oh.

>> Yeah, I'm over it.

>> We shouldn't need commercials to tell you we're powerful.

>> No thanks.

>> Genders don't play sports.

>> Athletes do.

GLENN: Then why do we have title 9?

PAT: Right. We don't need it anymore. If there's no gender in sports.

GLENN: Why do we have the WNBA? I would really like to suggest to the NBA that they start to draft women.

STU: The NBA subsidizes the WNBA. There would be no Ws in the WNBA if that was the case.

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.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.
