Quick, hide the cutlery!

Want to know how to blow a progressive’s mind? It’s actually pretty easy. Progressive arguments always break down the further you let the idea play out. Once you give an example of endgame, it’s all over.

Case in point: gender.

The champions of social justice want you to believe that gender is fluid. Once the chains of gender science were lifted, the movement went, well... off the chain. By February 2014 there were 58 listed genders.

Four months later, there were 71. Today, there are over 112 listed genders. Mysteriously missing from the list are male and female. Wanna know why? Because they know, as all school children know, that --- in reality --- there are only two genders, but you can’t be reminded of that. You have to FIGHT ON FOR THE CAUSE!

Here’s another example. Leave it to the land that founded the Fabian Society to unwittingly make the conservative case for guns without actually even meaning to. The UK has already banned guns, but now they’re starting a new initiative: comprehensive knife control.

This may come as a shock to progressives all over the world --- bad guys and criminals occasionally try and hurt people.

London’s mayor, Sadiq Khan, has a problem. Apparently --- and this may come as a shock to progressives all over the world --- bad guys and criminals occasionally try and hurt people. I know, I know, this is a shocker, but it comes from years of intense research.

Our cousins across the pond thought they had figured it all out when they banned guns back in the 90s. THEY DID IT! It was as if Neville Chamberlain was speaking from the grave. PEACE IN OUR TIME!

Well, maybe pump those brakes just a little bit. Crime in the UK has spiraled out of control. There are no guns in the country, and yet the murder rate in London has now overtaken that of New York City. How can that be!? People were still hurting and killing each other, but they just moved on to doing it with knives.

Apparently, the tools criminals use don't really matter to them, as long as they get the job done. You can practically hear the phone call from the Fabian Society library to the London Mayor’s office.

Ring ring ring...

Spooky Fabian guy: QUICK! JUST START BANNING THINGS!

London Mayor: Can I ban lawlessness? Nope, that’ll never work. Maybe I can ban evil? Nah. We’d all be banned along with everyone else. Oh, I've got it... Let’s ban cutlery!

So that’s what they did. Operation Sceptre kicked off all over the UK, stopping random citizens and searching them for any tools of death. The primary boogeyman here was knives, and the mere fact that the UK has gone from banning guns to kitchen cutlery is actually enough for us to laugh and prove our point, but the crackdown on inanimate objects didn’t stop there.

Congratulations UK. You won’t stop a single crime with this.

They’re also confiscating --- and this isn’t a joke --- scissors, pliers, screwdrivers, hammers... anything AT ALL that might be used as a weapon. What’s next? A ban on hands and feet?

Congratulations UK. You won’t stop a single crime with this. The only thing you’ll impede is waves of bloodthirsty civilians looking to assemble their IKEA furniture. Eating a steak might be a little more difficult as well. Banning the tools of criminals and evil men, won’t do a thing to stop crime.

So, a BIG shout out and thank you to the London mayor for opening Pandora's box and making the case for the Second Amendment. I can’t wait to watch the BBC town hall arguing the evils of the NRA --- that is The National Ratchet Association --- and how they need to have a serious conversation about comprehensive ratchet and socket control.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."

The World Economic Forum isn't trying to hide its plans for the Great Reset. Details to "reset" the global economy have been published on its own website. Despite that and all the warning signs, many are still quick to refute this master plan as a "conspiracy theory" or as something that will never actually take hold. But as Glenn Beck explained on the radio program Monday, the Great Reset is happening right now in Europe. A huge new development for the Great Reset that could affect not only European businesses, but American ones as well. Businesses — and citizens — may be forced to comply sooner than you think.
