Toby Keith - A Classic Christmas

GLENN BECK PROGRAM


BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

KEITH: Oh, God, yeah. This would be that kind of a movie. It would be a cross between 48 Hours and Smokey and the Bandit. It's got some drama in it but at the same time the characters, the writing's so funny. There's a little bit of everything in there. It's going to hit square in the bull's eyes. It's exactly what my videos are in every way except it should have been three minutes long. You know, it's an hour and 40 minutes long.

GLENN: Hang on just a second because how are you going to get this in the movie theatres with everybody just beating down a path to get to those antiwar movies?

KEITH: I don't know if they're beating down a path. I think the beauty of this movie is the last one I did, Broken Bridges, we really struggled with people in Hollywood on having any support and Paramount did it and it was just a complete disaster for me. I mean, the movie made a lot of money and I saw how they did it and I saw who did it and so we just went and did this one ourself. We've got some big production companies and players involved and everything, but we just left the mean people out of the loop. But it's -- that world doesn't think -- New York and LA doesn't think that the rest of the country has a say-so. So when you see these TV shows on television, it's all about New York and LA.

GLENN: Yeah.

KEITH: There's nothing in between. And this movie's about what's in between.

GLENN: It's kind of the Roseanne thing. You know, that's why Roseanne was such a big hit is because it was more reflective of the center of the country. You know, I talked to Jeff Foxworthy about this, that he's a nobody in New York City, in Los Angeles a nobody. But you take him outside of those cities and he is hugely successful, the most successful comedian in the history of comedians and you say that to people in New York or LA and they will say, no, no, no, that's Seinfeld. No, it's not. It's Jeff Foxworthy.

KEITH: Yeah. Well, he -- you know, that's where they miss the boat. When you take a -- they came at me about -- started coming at me about six years ago. CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox, Dreamworks, HBO all came at me from different angles to do a sitcom and we started talking about -- you know, I said I don't know if I've got time to do that kind of commitment. My music kind of comes first to me and I kind of have a night job already and I said so, you know, what would you want to do. And they said, give us some ideas. So I started saying, okay, I want to be a songwriter and I want to live next door to another songwriter. So it would be like, you know, all those sitcoms type character. And I said, my next-door neighbor needs to be a guy that writes real goofy songs and can't see how to write a good one and I would start -- and where would it be set? I said Texas or Oklahoma or Tennessee and they were like, no, no, no, no. You would move to LA. They just cannot stand to be anywhere but where they can control it, it's in their world. And also like when you hire a writer from out there to work on a movie with you and it's a movie about the South, their dialogue and the way they see the South doesn't even transpose to what really is. It's different.

GLENN: A couple of weeks ago I was talking to Jon Voight who was in Transformers and he said -- you know, he played the secretary of defense and he said he got onto the set and he said he looked at the words that the secretary of defense, that had been written for his character. He was like, they didn't even understand it. They didn't even understand how the secretary of defense could be strong and not evil and not part of it and didn't -- he said it's remarkable. And I found this with journalists in New York City. They don't even understand a conservative because the only ones they've ever met are conservative politicians, and I don't know what politicians are lately anymore, you know? They just, it's like we're foreign life forms to people in New York and LA.

KEITH: I know it. You're right. You hit it right on. You know, they try to wrap me up in their political world all the time and there's a huge difference between being political and patriotic and they can't see the difference.

GLENN: Yeah.

END TRANSCRIPT

First, President Joe Biden nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline, driving the price at the pump through the roof. Now, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg has floated the idea of taxing every mile you drive as a way to pay for Biden's massive infrastructure spending proposal. So much for buying an electric car to save money at the pump. It's almost as if they want you to feel the coming pain as deeply as possible.

Watch the video clip below to see Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere react to the Biden administration's latest plan for taking more of your money:

California's Board of Education voted unanimously to approve a new, multi-million-dollar Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum, which will be offered statewide with many of the state's largest school districts making it a requirement for graduation. According to National Review, the curriculum is "probably the most radical, polemical, and ideologically loaded educational document ever offered up for public consideration in the free world."

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck reacted to the newly approved curriculum, calling it "the craziest, most terrifying story I have ever had to report."

Glenn read an excerpt from the National Review report describing the curriculum:

Students are to be taught that white Christian settlers committed "theocide" against indigenous tribes when they arrived in the New World by murdering Native American gods and replacing them with the Christian God. According to the curriculum, this replacement ushered in a regime defined by "coloniality, dehumanization, and genocide," and the "explicit erasure and replacement of holistic Indigeneity and humanity." But all is not lost, we are told. For students will learn that they have the power and the responsibility to build a social order defined by "countergenocide," which will eventually supplant the last vestiges of colonial Christianity and pave the way for the "regeneration of indigenous epistemic and cultural futurity."

Students first clap and chant to the god Tezkatlipoka — whom the Aztecs traditionally worshipped with human sacrifice and cannibalism — asking him for the power to be "warriors" for "social justice." Next, the students chant to the gods Quetzalcoatl, Huitzilopochtli, and Xipe Totek, seeking "healing epistemologies" and "a revolutionary spirit." Huitzilopochtli, in particular, is the Aztec deity of war and inspired hundreds of thousands of human sacrifices during Aztec rule. Finally, the chant comes to a climax with a request for "liberation, transformation, [and] decolonization," after which students shout "Panche beh! Panche beh!" in pursuit of ultimate "critical consciousness."

Glenn explained some of the horrifying details of the Aztec worship traditions California's educators and administrators seek to "regenerate," including human sacrifice by the tens of thousands, cannibalism, and the severe and prolonged torture and sacrifice of children.

"Those are the gods that they [the Board of Education in California] think really need to be worshiped and brought back in our understanding because that whole Christian God was only about 'oppression'," Glenn said sardonically.

"Gang, we are in biblical-sized trouble," he added. "We are under attack from the forces of darkness unlike anything I've ever seen before ... because the soul of our nation, and the soul of children, is at stake."

Cigna — the 13th largest corporation in the U.S. measured by revenue — has recently started teaching employees critical race theory. Those lessons, however, have been "quietly" protested by some workers who leaked lesson screenshots to the Washington Examiner.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and co-host Stu Burguiere discussed a lesson on "inclusive language" — and you won't believe which phrases Cigna classifies as offensive. Do you use any of these phrases in your daily life?

WARNING: Here's who's REALLY behind 'spooky, right-wing' extremism

Over the past year, the left has tried to paint conservatives as "spooky, right-wing" extremists who want to destroy the nation. But true conservatives know that's not true. However, there is a dangerous global movement that fits this "spooky" definition — masquerading as "right-wing" — and it's gaining momentum. It's called Traditionalism, with a capital "T."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," author and award-winning expert on the radical right Professor Benjamin Teitelbaum joined Glenn to define Traditionalism and explain why it's exactly how the left wants to paint conservatives — but that couldn't be further from the truth.

Teitelbaum said Traditionalism is the "most transformative political movement of the early 21st century" in his book, "War for Eternity," which Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald called "an indispensable text" for understanding "the most profound and tumultuous political shifts defining societies on every continent." It's a bizarre story, involving Steve Bannon, Hinduism, Hitler, mysticism, Aleksandr Dugin, the Constitution, and tons and tons of money.
