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.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
