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.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:

Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg has surged in the polls in the past month.

With former Vice President Joe Biden dropping below far-left presidential candidates such as the unapologetically socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), and the almost equally extremist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass), Democratic voters seeking a more moderate alternative are setting their sights on Mayor Pete.

But are Buttigieg's policies actually moderate? Not even close, Glenn Beck said Thursday on the radio program.

"[Pete Buttigieg] wants people to see him as a moderate. The mayor of a Midwest city in a red state ... and he's going for the middle, even though he is not a moderate candidate in any way," said Glenn.

Here are just a few example of where Buttigieg stands on the issues:

  • Supports late-term, partial-birth abortion
  • Eliminate the Electoral College
  • Buyback program for assault weapons
  • Raise the federal minimum wage to $15/hour
  • Expand Medicare
  • Decriminalize illegal immigration
  • Pay for infrastructure through changing taxes on corporations, the wealthy
  • Study reparations
  • Legalize marijuana
  • Increase existing taxes on upper-income Americans
  • Cancel some student debt
  • Don't use tariffs to pressure countries

An official at the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations' health agency, has issued a warning, calling the coronavirus "the worst enemy you can imagine" and more of a threat than "any terrorist attack," during a media briefing on Tuesday.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO's director general, said that a vaccine for the coronavirus will likely take 18 months to develop. The virus has reportedly killed hundreds and infected tens of thousands of people, primarily in China.

"To be honest, a virus is more powerful in creating political, social and economic upheaval than any terrorist attack. It's the worst enemy you can imagine," added Ghebreyesus.

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck noted that the same agency in charge of developing this life-saving vaccine, has taken the time to officially change the disease's name to COVID-19, citing the concern of "stigmatizing" any specific geographical location, individual, or group of people.
