Here’s Why This Christmas Classic Is Abominable by Today’s Standards

Since its debut in 1964, “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” has been a much-loved holiday classic. Generations of Americans have grown up with the stop-motion story about the lovable misfit who saves Christmas and becomes ‘the most famous reindeer of all.’ In fact, many of us have seen this Christmas special — the longest continuously running Christmas special in history — so many times that we don’t see it for what it is: “[E]vidence that America has really changed,” said Glenn on the show today.

“We have watched this now every single year. It is a classic. I don’t know when I started noticing but now I’m to the point where I can’t even watch it anymore,” Glenn said, adding, “We always thought as kids that Santa was happy and nice, but now as I watch this as an adult, I realize he is … a xenophobic jerk.”

Watch the clip above to get Glenn’s take on why movies like “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” would never fly in today’s ‘kinder and gentler’ society. “For anybody who says that we have not changed as a society, that we are still just as horrible as we’ve always been … I would like to offer some evidence that America has really changed since the 1960’s.”

NO comparison between REAL Jim Crow laws & Georgia voting bill

The left keeps comparing Georgia's new voting regulations to Jim Crow era laws, arguing the voting bill is too restrictive and even racist against minority populations. But Glenn argues that it's an INSULTING comparison to make, especially to those who actually lived and experienced the real, horrifying Jim Crow laws during the early 20th century. In this clip, Glenn explains what Jim Crow ACTUALLY means and how Georgia does not even COME CLOSE.

In this clip, Stu details the non-strict 'mask police' that were at the game, and Pat makes an interesting prediction: could mask regulations for vaccinated Americans actually be phased out by Memorial Day?

Did Joe Biden tell America to stop praying?

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

WATCH this pastor chase 'communist' cops out of his church: 'Gestapo is not allowed here!'

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"
