Feminist Lena Dunham Sells Dresses to Benefit Planned Parenthood, Returns Bothersome Shelter Dog

Actress, humanitarian and animal lover Lena Dunham recently shared a very, very sad story. Her beloved dog Lamby, whom she adopted from a shelter in 2013, just had too many behavioral issues for Dunham to handle because of previous abuse Lamby suffered as a puppy. Poor Lamby. So she decided to give him up. Only, the shelter refutes Dunham's claim that Lamby suffered abuse.

Robert Vasquez, who runs the shelter, contradicted Dunham's claim that three previous owners had abused Lamby.

"Apparently, the shelter wants to know where Ms. Dunham got the information," Glenn said Thursday on radio.

Apparently, Lamby was the picture perfect, mild-mannered, well-behaved dog with no sign of a bad temperament or any kind of aggression. Now, what could have possibly changed that after being in the loving company of Ms. Dunham?

Difficult family pets are not the only thing the feminist is on board with discarding --- because it's all about convenience. The humanitarian also plans to sell off some of her clothing to benefit Planned Parenthood.

"That's a special thing, that slaughtering babies is that important to her," Co-host Pat Gray noted.

"The shirt off her back," Co-host Stu Burguiere chimed in.

In reality, she's doing the world a favor.

"She's cleaning out her closet. She's a celebrity who has a lot of clothes. She's listening to Oprah Winfrey who says, "If you don't wear something in a year, you just have to get rid of it because you're never going to wear it." So she's just getting rid of her clothes. Instead of bagging them up and bringing them to Goodwill, she's grabbing headlines because she's donating them to Planned Parenthood," Glenn said. "It's a publicity stunt."

GLENN: Okay. Lena Dunham. Should we start with the clothes to Planned Parenthood? Do we need to know anymore about -- she's selling her clothes to benefit Planned Parenthood.

PAT: And that's a special thing, that slaughtering babies is that important to her.

STU: The shirt off her back.

PAT: Yeah, giving them the shirt off her back.

GLENN: No. Come on. Here's what she's doing -- she's selling -- she's cleaning out her closet. She's a celebrity who has a lot of clothes. She's listening to Oprah Winfrey who says, "If you don't wear something in a year, you just have to get rid of it because you're never going to wear it." So she's just getting rid of her clothes. Instead of bagging them up and bringing them to Goodwill, she's grabbing headlines because she's donating them to Planned Parenthood. Oh.

STU: It is smart on her behalf probably.

GLENN: Yeah, but that's all it is: It's a publicity stunt.

STU: Yes. And I think we can all come together as a nation and say the last thing in the world we want to encourage is her having less clothing.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. I would like that --

STU: Please increase the amount of clothing. I would donate -- we should all donate clothing to her so she hopefully would put some of it on.

JEFFY: Why the hate?

GLENN: I always thought I was going to hoard all my clothes for my future daughter, and now I understand, especially being a woman with reproductive illness, that I may end up with an adopted son. I may end up with a daughter who doesn't identify with her gender at birth. You can't --

STU: All the problems.

GLENN: You can't live for the future that does not exist yet. I have to take all this good fashion and fortune, and I have to spread it.

STU: That really is a publicity stunt, isn't it?

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. Okay.

STU: And she's looking for some good publicity, because there have been some stories about her lately that have not been so positive.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. Like this one? Try this one.

Lena Dunham wanted her fans to know what had happened to her dog Lamby. Who got a little dog Lamby? Who's got a little dog Lamby?

PAT: I think Lena does.

GLENN: Ms. Dunham. Lamby. As she adopted. And she's like, "It's like a little Lamby."

STU: That's cute.

GLENN: She adopted Lamby in 2013. The cream-colored mutt stopped making appearances in social media feeds, replaced it seemed by two fresh-faced poodles, Susan and Karen.

Okay. You went from Lamby. Who's a little Lamby? To Agnes?

Well, I'm really not their owner. You can't really own Susan or Karen.

STU: She's using gender-specific names. I mean, who knows how these things identify.

PAT: Exactly right.

GLENN: Amen. So on June 21st, Ms. Dunham disclosed on Instagram that Lamby suffered -- suffered terrible -- I can barely say it. Suffered terrible abuse as a puppy. And that because of that abuse, had resulted in behavioral problems. So she had to let Lamby go.

STU: And Lamby was like 65 big publicity stunts earlier. Where she made such a big deal about this stupid dog that she adopted. And it was her saving animals. And she adopted it from a no-kill shelter.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. No. Lamby was going to be killed.

STU: And she saved the life of this dog.

GLENN: Right. Well, the shelter saved the life of the dog. Because it's a no-kill shelter. It's not going to let little Lamby go.

Little Lamby is special. Little Lamby is no different than you. Little Lamby is just as smart as any human. Little Lamby is not looking for an owner. Is looking for a loving home. And Lena Dunham was there, with her clothes, to adopt little Lamby.

But little Lamby had been abused. Had been abused so many times by three -- by three -- not one, not two, but three owners.

And little Lamby who was so cute in all those social media posts and got little Lena and little Lamby all snuggling up next to each other for all those media posts and all that attention and all the great things that she did to help little Lamby, it must have been horrible, the abuse.

Well, actually Robert Vasquez, the -- the guy who runs the shelter, The Barc. B-A-R-C.

STU: Oh, I get it. Because it's like a barking noise.

PAT: It's adorable.

GLENN: He works at the doggie shelter where Ms. Lena got little Lamby. Said, quote, when she adopted a dog from us, it wasn't crazy. I mean, I have pictures of the dog loving on Lena and her mom, which is weird because dogs don't usually do that if it was abused.

Apparently, the shelter wants to know where Ms. Dunham got the information of the three owners. Quote, when the dog was here at Barc, where he lived with us for just under a month when he was adopted, he was a very mild-mannered, very well-behaved dog. There was no sign of bad temperament or any kind of aggression.

JEFFY: Hmm.

GLENN: Hmm.

PAT: So little Lamby hadn't been abused by three owners?

GLENN: Well -- well, the -- the place where she adopted the dog -- had no bark.

JEFFY: Barc.

STU: Oh, because it's like the dog noise, guys.

(laughter)

GLENN: Oh, man. That kills me every time.

Barc has no information about three owners. Has no information about abuse from three owners.

STU: No. Uh-uh.

GLENN: But that's because they never got to know thought Lamby.

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Little Lamby has been talking to Lena because dogs can talk too. Dogs are people too. And Lena has been listening and hearing the horror stories of little Lamby. And now she got Susan and Karen who also -- not a lot of people know this, Susan and Karen are both dog psychiatrists. And Susan had Lamby lay down on the little doggie couch there. Karen was taking notes. And Susan was talking to little Lamby and said, "How does this make you feel when you have to eat your food like some oppressed caged animal, eating your food off the floor?" It's not even really a dish. It's a -- it's just a stupid bowl. But not a bowl that she eats in. Have her eat her ice cream out of that bowl. No, she won't do it.

How does that make you feel, Lamby? And that's when Lamby broke down and said, "I've had three owners who abused me so badly, that I act out sometimes. And I pee on the carpet. And I bite Lena. It's not because I hate her. It's because I've been abused."

(chuckling)

STU: Is it possible the dog made up the story to get out of that house?

GLENN: If you were a dog, wouldn't you?

STU: Yes. Bring me back. Give me to the kill shelter this time.

(laughter)

JEFFY: She keep walking around naked. She's got no clothes on. I got to get out of here.

(laughter)

GLENN: The first few nights, I had him, it was just the two of us. He's perfect, she wrote. Quiet, limp as a sack of laundry, Lamby kisses me softly every time he has the chance. Lamby's behavior shortly after: Had trouble being alone. He barked at night.

That's never happened.

JEFFY: Never.

GLENN: Never happened. A dog that barks at night? That's never happened.

PAT: Not with a normal dog.

GLENN: No.

JEFFY: No.

GLENN: That's why people don't get it at the shelter named Barc.

STU: Oh, it's like the dog noise.

GLENN: Well, a dog noise that dogs never make. They never really make that. Only bad dogs bark.

(laughter)

Only dogs that deserve to be gassed, because they've been oppressed for so long.

There's your Lena Dunham update. Probably the update not just for the day, but for the rest of our lives.

Critical Race Theory: A special brand of evil

wal_172619/Pixabay

Part of what makes it hard for us to challenge the left is that their beliefs are complicated. We don't mean complicated in a positive way. They aren't complicated the way love is complicated. They're complicated because there's no good explanation for them, no basis in reality.

The left cannot pull their heads out of the clouds. They are stuck on romantic ideas, abstract ideas, universal ideas. They talk in theories. They see the world through ideologies. They cannot divorce themselves from their own academic fixations. And — contrary to what they believe and how they act — it's not because leftists are smarter than the rest of us. And studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country. Marx was no different. The Communist Manifesto talks about how the rise of cities "rescued a considerable part of the population from the idiocy of rural life."

Studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country.

Instead of admitting that they're pathological hypocrites, they tell us that we're dumb and tell us to educate ourselves. Okay, so we educate ourselves; we return with a coherent argument. Then they say, "Well, you can't actually understand what you just said unless you understand the work of this other obscure Marxist writer. So educate yourselves more."

It's basically the "No True Scotsman" fallacy, the idea that when you point out a flaw in someone's argument, they say, "Well, that's a bad example."

After a while, it becomes obvious that there is no final destination for their bread-crumb trail. Everything they say is based on something that somebody else said, which is based on something somebody else said.

Take critical race theory. We're sure you've noticed by now that it is not evidence-based — at all. It is not, as academics say, a quantitative method. It doesn't use objective facts and data to arrive at conclusions. Probably because most of those conclusions don't have any basis in reality.

Critical race theory is based on feelings. These feelings are based on theories that are also based on feelings.

We wanted to trace the history of critical race theory back to the point where its special brand of evil began. What allowed it to become the toxic, racist monster that it is today?

Later, we'll tell you about some of the snobs who created critical theory, which laid the groundwork for CRT. But if you follow the bread-crumb trail from their ideas, you wind up with Marxism.

For years, the staff has devoted a lot of time to researching Marxism. We have read a lot of Marx and Marxist writing. It's part of our promise to you to be as informed as possible, so that you know where to go for answers; so that you know what to say when your back is up against the wall. What happens when we take the bread-crumb trail back farther, past Marxism? What is it based on?

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism.

It's actually based on the work of one of the most important philosophers in human history, a 19th-century German philosopher named Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel.

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism. And, as you'll see in just a bit, if we look at Hegel's actual ideas, it's obvious that Marx completely misrepresented them in order to confirm his own fantasies.

So, in a way, that's where the bread-crumb trail ends: With Marx's misrepresentation of an incredibly important, incredibly useful philosophy, a philosophy that's actually pretty conservative.

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."
