Glenn Beck: 'Sweetie'

Barack Obama’s Pitch in Kentucky

GLENN: To complain about stuff. So let me complain, let me complain about Mr. Barack Obama. I find it absolutely amazing that Barack Obama is going after the evangelicals in Kentucky with a poster that says "Faith, hope, change, Barack Obama for President." And then it says a quote from him: "My faith teaches me that I can sit in church and pray all I want, but I won't be fulfilling God's will unless I go out and do the Lord's work, Barack Obama." Can you imagine if a conservative would have said that? Can you imagine if they would have had Mitt Romney behind a pulpit with a cross behind him and he said that? They would have crucified the guy no that's probably they would have crucified the guy! I can't believe the hypocrisy. And then what are people talking about on television? The sweetie comment? You know the sweetie comment? The sweetie comment, he recalled a reporter sweetie, "Hey, listen, sweetie." That's what you get up in arms about, the sweetie comment? That's really, that's it? He called what was it he related a pregnancy to, I believe a disease in his daughter? What was that quote?

STU: Punish her with a baby. I don't want to punish her with a baby. I love that quote.

GLENN: I'm going to punish her with a baby? I'm going to punish her with a baby. Right, right. That's it. He's talking about going and having a sit down and a sandwich with a guy who says that Israel will soon be annihilated and vaporized, let's have a sandwich but you're worried about him calling a woman reporter sweetie.

STU: On the sweetie thing, Glenn, though, don't you love when people from the left get caught in this world they've created where sweetie, which is a nice, a harmless thing where you're trying to be nice to someone, yet you get hammered for it because it's not the appropriate word for this week. I love when they get caught in their own net.

GLENN: You know what? I'm calling everybody on this program sweetie.

STU: I like that.

GLENN: I'm calling everybody who calls in fact, take Line 3.

Sweetheart, sweetie, how are you?

CALLER: Hello?

GLENN: Sweetie, how are you?

CALLER: Yes? Yes? Yes, Glenn (in high pitched voice).

Obama's 'Sweetie' Comment

GLENN: How are you doing, Mike?

CALLER: Good, how are you doing?

GLENN: Good. Welcome to Closed Line Friday. What's up?

CALLER: Not much. Can I get a little bit of conspiracy train cuckoo noise?

GLENN: You got that one, Dan?

STU: Very don't have that one in a while. We're going to have to search for that one.

GLENN: Who has removed the paranoia express sound effect?

CALLER: Oh, no.

GLENN: Who has taken that off? All aboard? Paranoia express, go ahead, Mike.

CALLER: No, I just had a I just wanted you'll have to excuse me. I'm extremely nervous.

GLENN: That's all right, sweetheart, relax.

CALLER: Thank you. I just believe that the Democrats are actually systematically trying to destroy the free market and trying to, you know, destroy capitalism so that they can begin to federalize industry.





GLENN: What gives you that Mike, what makes you believe that these really well educated, most of them attorneys that went to, you know, institutions of higher learning like Berkeley would be trying to destroy the capitalist system?

CALLER: Because I believe they think they're so smart that they're better equipped to manage our lives than we are. They don't think it's fair that corporations get to make this money. They don't think that it's fair that they get to allocated it as they see fit and they think that they're better qualified to do so.

GLENN: What evidence do you have that shows that those members in government believe that they can make decisions for you?

CALLER: They outlawed transfat, I can't fly through my windshield if I want to, I have to wear a seat belt. I mean, the most inalienable right to a human being is to be able to work and to reap the benefits of that work. But I have an oppressive government that stands over top of me with their hand out demanding by police force that I give them the product of my hard labor every time I turn around. I mean, there's a thousand different taxes. We have a tax code that's how many pages? 9,000 something odd pages long. I mean, it's getting to the point now it's ridiculous. Almost to the point where I want to dispel the notion where we're actually a free society. We live in a society where they confiscate 15% of my income throughout the course of my life which I'm 25, I'm to the going to get but yet I don't have the option to look at them and say I don't want your retirement plan, I want to save for my own retirement. If I took 15% of my income and put it in a Roth IRA, I would retire a millionaire throughout the course of my life. But I can't do that. If I try to do that, they will come to my house with guns and confiscate my property and auction it off.

GLENN: Mike.

CALLER: Uh huh?

GLENN: Why do you hate poor people so much?

CALLER: I don't hate poor people. That's the point. I believe that the poor people can make it. I mean, my father was a criminal. All his brothers were criminal. I was raised by a single mother. I'm a kid that used to play Russian roulette. I got arrested for armed robbery. You know what I mean? I've had a very checkered past. I've had all the ingredients for failure that all these other people have had. I've got a sixth grade education and I'm making about $60,000 a year running a small business that, you know, hopefully I plan on doubling if the Government doesn't, you know, put their foot on my throat and choke me out.

GLENN: So what you're saying, if I may, you hate women less than you hate African Americans?

CALLER: No, not at all. I believe in America. I believe in the concept of personal responsibility. I believe that African Americans as well as women are just as capable of accomplishing as much as, dare I say it, a white male.

GLENN: So how much money are you taking from Exxon or oil companies?

CALLER: Oh, billions, yeah. They told me to call. I'm actually on their payroll.

GLENN: Good. Well, at least we finally got to the truth. Thanks, Mike, I appreciate it. Great call.

CALLER: All right.


How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.
