Who Has Enough Extra Time to ‘Scream Helplessly’ to Protest Trump?

In a particularly bizarre protest, people angry at the Trump administration gathered in cities around the country to “scream helplessly at the sky” on the anniversary of Election Day.

“Let’s have a primal scream for the current state of our democracy!” organizers at an event in Philadelphia said.

Glenn found this method of protest puzzling to say the least. Who has that kind of time on their hands? Wouldn’t you rather spend time with friends or family or at least watch some TV?

“Were there no reruns of ‘Friends’ or even ‘The Golden Girls’ to watch last night?” Glenn asked. “No paint to watch dry?”

GLENN: You could hear the screams from a block away. The shrieks. The shrieks. Desperate, filled with agony.

The screaming went on for what seemed like hours, but their cries for help would not be answered. Because there was really nothing to save them from. They were just screaming at the sky. So...

I don't really understand this. But it was powerful. It was powerful. There were people last night that gathered in cities all across America to scream at the sky, literal just screaming at the sky.

The activists gathered together on the street corners in New York City and Chicago and Washington, DC, to attend a Facebook event called Scream Helplessly At the Sky, at the anniversary of the election. My gosh. We are going to be remembered as a society of geniuses, really, seriously. People are going to look back and say, my gosh, those people had it in control. People would RSVP. They literally RSVPed and showed up in major cities to shout into the night sky, about how much they hated Trump.

Sure, there's a better way to relieve frustration than patrolling people in social media and typing nasty messages to those with with different political views. But really, screaming at the sky.

Do you -- and I'm talked to the protesters. Do you have friends? Have you ever dated a girl or a boy -- and I'm not suggesting that you have to. You could date anything you want. A matchbox car. And I support that.

Do you have families? Were there no reruns of Friends or even the Golden Girls to watch last night? No fresh paint to watch to dry?

It amazes me that we live in a sea of people that have no idea about how valuable time is and how to use your intellect. If you are a leftist activist, at least take some peaceful action or come up with a witty limerick to chant. I mean -- I mean, at least Jesse Jackson came up with rhymes. Screaming at the descry helplessly just makes you look pretty ridiculous.

And I don't know if you know this, but it's not going to get him out of office. But I -- I want to have a serious conversation with you. I just -- I want to point this out. And I don't want to upset you. I don't want to create an unsafe feeling here, because I want you to feel safe. But I just want to point out that screaming out like that, and just (sound effect), you added a ton of unnecessary CO2 to the atmosphere. And I don't think you want to do that. Do you?

Unmasking the OTHER Deadly Pandemic: What's Killing Our Kids

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

IBM's Role in Killing Jews & Lessons for Big Tech | Edwin Black | Ep 97

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril.

He also discusses Disney actress Gina Carano, fired for comparing conservative persecution to the Nazi treatment of the Jews. Our culture is being erased. Our ideals and values are being censored and mocked. Our history is being erased. With another human extermination on the horizon in China, Edwin challenges this with bravery.

The New Red Scare & Our 'Reality Czars'

The American Red Scare of the 1950s may be one of the most important — and most terrifying — events in our nation's history. It was a witch hunt — an all-out assault — on any American citizen deemed to be a threat simply because of their thoughts.
Led by Senator McCarthy, the House of Un-American Activities Committee destroyed lives. Mere accusations sometimes meant you were stripped of your job and your dignity. Sound familiar?

On Glenn TV tonight, Glenn Beck outlines how we've gone from pursuing alleged communists to pursuing "right-wing extremists." But how are our new "reality czars" defining that? Is it Trump supporters, red-state Republicans, conspiracy-theorist "nut jobs"? Our new Red Scare is here, America. Are you on the list? Later, Donald Trump Jr. joins Glenn to call out this modern McCarthyism and explains the real reason for President Trump's second impeachment trial.

Watch the special in full below:

Only BlazeTV subscribers can watch the full, unedited interview with Donald Trump Jr., free from "reality czars." Glenn asks Don Jr. how President Trump is handling the impeachment, what happens to the conservative movement going forward, and whether it will be led by a Trump.

Jewish Space Lasers & Deplatforming 'MAGA Media' | Ben Shapiro | Ep 96

Behold Ben Shapiro, the Great Wrecker of Libs himself. From the growing contempt for free speech to the fatal excesses of cancel culture and the forcefulness of so-called racial equity, Ben smashes claims that conservatives don't battle censorship. All of it is fueled by the Left's need for constant revolution and their habitual gaslighting. Seriously, the gaslighting is nonstop: At this very moment, makeshift fencing (aka a wall) surrounds the Capitol. Democrats used to hate walls and borders, but thousands of National Guardsmen occupy Washington, D.C., for unclear reasons, for an indefinite amount of time, and the Democrats are happy about it?

Ben also addresses some of the more "creative" conspiracy theories of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, like Jewish space lasers. And what about the obsession to rid this "cancer" from Congress? Ben says it's all politics: "We're all old enough to remember [before] Marjorie Taylor Greene, it was Steve King, and when it was not Steve King and it was Christine O'Donnell, and when it was not Christine O'Donnell, it was Todd Akin. Meanwhile, I got Nancy Pelosi on the cover of a magazine with Ilhan Omar, and it's like, well, 'that's just the way things go' five minutes after she was about to censure her for her anti-Semitism." Ben ends the show on a strategy to help Democrats and tearful journalists at Politico stop treating conservatives as domestic enemies.
