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.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn explained why he wouldn't be surprised to see our supply chain collapse and empty shelves in America in the near future. Shortages are already wrecking our economy, China (where many of our goods are still made) is facing an energy shortage, and the Biden administration sure seems to be doing everything it can to make things worse.

Glenn noted a serious warning from American CEO Mike Beckham: "There's a major storm brewing in the supply chain," Beckham wrote on Twitter.

Thanks to China's centrally planned system, electricity shortages are causing huge delays in product manufacturing. In fact, some items are facing a 33 percent cut in production. "It could dramatically impact every [American's] life next year. But almost no one knows about it yet," Beckham warned.

Glenn went on to explain exactly what this means for you — and what you can do to prepare.

Every decision made by President Joe Biden has ended in "disaster," Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck.

O'Reilly joined the radio program to explain why he thinks there's only one "mechanism" Americans can use stop the Biden administration's mess.

"Give me one thing that [Biden] has done, just one, that's improved this nation. Everything that he has been involved with is a disaster. Everything from the COVID mandates, to the energy policies, to the economic policies, to the inflation, to Afghanistan, to the collapsing southern border, to the social woke business, to the denial of due process. Right across-the-board, there isn't anything this man has done, or stood for, that's improved America," O'Reilly said.

"But there is no mechanism to do anything about it until a year from this November: the midterm elections. That's the only mechanism that we have, under the Constitution. We elected this guy and he's there for four years. You neutralize him next November [2022], with the Republicans taking back the House and Senate, then he's done. [He] can't do anymore damage because you've got him in a hole. And he's not going to be proactive with executive orders. He's just going to stay there in his jammies for two more years. OK? So that's the only mechanism."

O'Reilly also tore into the corporate media for using its power to defend Gen. Mark Milley after news of his China calls broke. Is there any deterrence in American society anymore to keep our leaders and media in check?

"What does this say to the United States of America when you have two of the most powerful information agencies in the world — NBC, Comcast, and AT&T, CNN — actively deceiving you?" O'Reilly said. "They know what they're doing. And yet there is absolutely no way for anyone to hold them accountable other than not watching them, which has, of course, happened. You know they have no audience. But just the corruption level of the information flow to the American people is at an all-time high. We have never had a worse media in the history of this republic."

Twitter is full of fake communists. Privileged teenagers and 20-somethings who tweet about Karl Marx from their iPhone, safe inside their parents' house.

A recent example of this is the "What is your job on the Leftist commune?" meme. It began as a tweet from some anonymous Twitter Marxist, asking "What is your job on the Leftist commune?"

She continued, "I'm gonna be leading discussion on theory some days, making clothes from scraps other days, and making lattes whenever needed."

The tweet got thousands of likes, retweets, and comments. Things like, "Bringing everyone water. Pouring tea and hot cocoa for folx in the reading alcoves. Checking in and doing a pause-to-breath with folx."

By the way, "folks" is spelled with an "x" for some reason.

Other commune occupations included "proofreading pamphlets," singing, archery, cooking, crotchet, "guiding embodiment practices," tarot card reading, "identity politic lawyering." Therapist, librarian, prostitute, and "puppy kindergarten teacher."

They're basically parroting Marx, whose communist society sounds like Woodstock or Burning Man.

They're basically parroting Marx, whose communist society sounds like Woodstock or Burning Man.

A magical place where "there are no painters but at most people who engage in painting among other things," which allows "everyone sufficient free time to take part in the general affairs of society — theoretical as well as practical," so that "there are no politicians but at most people who engage in politics among other activities."

Don't you know that communism is all about leisure and good vibes? A playground full of puppies and lattes.

Marx refers to "idle time" as a time for higher activity. He calls it "time for the full development of the individual."

Me Time. A life of spa days.

Generation Z is the first digital generation. The first generation to be born inside the internet. So it's no surprise that they have fallen for this kind of Marxist nonsense. If someone convinces you that Marxism will free you from work, of course you'd want it.

Now they're quitting their jobs in droves. The media is calling it "The Great Resignation," but really it's just a new version of Marx's anti-work movement.

Gen Z are incredibly progressive. And they expect the government to be involved. Decades of Marxist activism have finally convinced a generation that the point of work, the point of life, the point of government, is activism.

Pew Research Center found that seven in ten "members of Gen Z are more likely than older generations to look to government to solve problems, rather than businesses and individuals."

Seven in ten of Gen Z believe that the government should do more to solve problems. A majority of them are not proud of America, a majority of them hold negative views of capitalism.

They believe Marx when he says that Capitalism is only good for producing its own grave-diggers. We know that this is actually a description of communism. Actually, communism is much worse. Because it always results in mass graves.

They haven't realized that that the world that Marx foresaw is long gone. It failed. Repeatedly.

They don't realize that, even on the page, Marxism doesn't work. Because ultimately the greatest flaw of Marxism is that it forces us to choose between productive slavery and unproductive freedom. Either way, with Marxism we can never be free.

"The Great Resignation" is ultimately a crisis of freedom, identity, and exhaustion. It is, as noted in a recent Gallup report, an expression of great discontent. Gen Z feels like they have nothing to lose and nothing to gain.

But in America, there's always something to lose and gain.

But in America, there's always something to lose and gain. They just need to have a little patience.

For the most part, Americans adhere to the libertarian maxim, "As long as you're not hurting anyone…." It's our undeniable belief in the goodness of the people around us. If you've traveled out of the States much, you know this to be true. There's a spirit inherent to America, and it is overwhelmingly good in nature.

Marx's utopia would ruin us. It would make us as lazy as Marx. A man who lived off other people his entire life. A man who had no loyalty to any nation because no nation wanted him. He was stateless. Do you realize how awful a person has to be for them to be stateless?

Maybe Gen Z just needs to see America at its finest.

Marx's utopia would quickly become disgusting. It would leave us feeling empty. Hopefully, they realize this before it's too late. For their own sake. Because, if America ever actually fell to communism, they would be the first ones against the wall.

When the government plans to spend $3.5 trillion that it doesn't have on a loose definition of "infrastructure," it's a good idea to know what's actually in it.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck revealed some of the expenditures Democrats hid in the bill, like a 10-fold increase in fines for employers who don't comply with the government's COVID-19 mandates, "equitable" bankroll for Biden's Build Back Better agenda, and "climate justice" funding.

"Let me tell you what's in our infrastructure bill, the $3.5 trillion bill," Glenn began. "Nancy Pelosi quietly tucked an enforcement mechanism into the $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill, passed it down to the budget committee, and sent it to the House floor. It's something you should know about, on page 168. I know, why read it? It's 2,465 pages."

Glenn pointed out the huge fees for certain businesses that refuse to comply with the Biden administration's proposed vaccine mandates. The fees could be as much as $700,000.

"Up to $700,000 ... that will kill all companies that are noncompliant. Kill them. That's 80 million of us who work in companies that are going to be fined in that way, if they don't bow the knee to the king," he said.

Glenn and Stu Burguiere went on to discuss more Democrat "wish list" items hidden inside this reconciliation bill, such as establishing "business incubators" who are authorized to disperse tens of billions of dollars to startup businesses in underserved areas, including the formerly incarcerated, and exclusive to businesses less that five years in operation or in "the planning stages."

"These sorts of businesses are the most risky place to put your money. Well, that matters when it's your money. But if it's not your money, who cares how risky it is. It's our [taxpayers] money so they don't care at all," Stu noted.

"Well, there's also $5 billion for climate justice block grants to pay for community organizations for, among other things, facilitating engagement of disadvantaged communities in state and federal processes," Glenn read. "Wait a minute. 'Facilitating engagement of disadvantaged communities in state and federal processes'? Organizing votes — that's what it sounds like."

"This is essentially all of us funding the fever dream of Barack Obama," Stu said.
