Glenn Beck: Free wine

RELATED STORY


Come look at this house, get a bottle of wine

GLENN: I've got so many things that I can't wait to share with you. Gee, where do I start? The judge that has banned the use of the word "Rape" at a rape trial, got that one. That one's really good. I love this one. The threat of world AIDS pandemic among heterosexuals is over. Good, we can all stop using those stupid condom things. Oh, that's not going to go well. That's not going to go well. Here's probably my favorite story of the day. This is from USA Today. "Come look at this house and I'll give you a bottle of wine," and I bet they would follow it up with, "And if I give you enough wine, you might sign this nice little paper. Could I just get you to, I just I'm collecting autographs. Do you want here, have another glass of wine. Just sign right here for me. I'm an autograph collector." Home sellers are offering freebies in attempt to draw possible buyers. Now, here's where they're doing. Ready? Charlottesville, Virginia. They're getting her name is Barbara Potter Drinkwater never buy a house from Barbara Potter Drinkwater. I'm sorry. She's trying to get other Realtors and potential buyers to see her open houses. She's tempting them with live music. I don't think I'm going to come to an open house if she's got live guitar players, live guitar music. "Hey, honey, what do you want to do tonight?" "I don't know. Barbara Potter Drinkwater's got a nice guitar player playing at the house down the street. What do you say we go have a free glass of wine, maybe kick back, listen to the free guitar music, look at the house that we have no intention of buying because we can't afford the gas that it would take to drive down the end of the street. But free wine, guitar music and Barbara Potter Drinkwater will be there. She's fantastic." What are you doing! Free guitar music! That's definitely not the house that I'd buy. I don't go anywhere near that house. "Open house? Oh, they're going to have..." can you imagine the collection of losers that are showing up there? No, seriously. No, come on. Admit it. Are you going to hear free guitar music at an open house? No. No, you're not. Why? Because you're normal. If you think like, "Friday night, what do you say we kick back, hear some free music." We're sitting in somebody else's house that they are trying to sell. Come on.

The other things that they're offering, $30 bottles of Chardonnay, Godiva chocolates. Oh, you know, life's like a box of chocolates. Live guitar music, vodka tasting. You notice now two out of the last five here have been alcohol involved? Of course. "No, really have some more vodka. The economy's about to turn around. It's going to be great. Have a little vodka. Would you like some more wine? Gas prices, we'll be paying 30 cents before you know it. Want to buy the house?" They are also having cocktail parties. Again no alcohol served there, I'm sure. Cocktail parties? I don't want to go to cocktail parties with people I do know. I want to go around to have a cocktail party maybe we could all break out and we could just bid on the house. Maybe just an auction will break out. A cocktail party? How desperate and friendless must you be to go to a cocktail party thrown by Barbara Potter Drinkwater? She's not the I hate to stick Barbara Potter Drinkwater I'm only using her because of her name because what a stupid name that is, but she's not the only one.

In California if you go see a house listed by Elaine Pinel oh, geez, she'll give you free dog biscuits. Have we really come down to this? Are we those people where we're like, oh, I don't know, honey, I didn't want to go but they're going to give us free dog biscuits"? Yeah, yeah, yeah. Food's so expensive. We might have to eat the dog biscuits ourselves (laughing). I mean, come on! Who's being induced to get in their car and drive to an open house that they don't want to see because they can get free dog biscuits? Shoe shines, they're offering shoe shines. Pardon me, boy, just looking for a shoe shine. Wife's going to take a spin around the house. I thought maybe you could buff my shoes? A shoe shine? This is like something that, this is like out of the Our Gang comedies. This is like I expect, what was, Spunky, Spotty, Sloppy? What was the fat kid's name in Our Gang? Did nobody grow up watching Our Gang? Spunky, Spotty, Spanky no, it wasn't Spanky. No, it was Spanky because I remember Eddie Murphy did Panky, remember? It was Buckwheat and Panky. All right, I don't remember. Yeah, The Little Rascals. I mean, Stu, you didn't watch Little Rascals? Those are the Our Gang comedies.

STU: Yeah, Little Rascals had Spanky and I think that's the one you're talking about, right?

GLENN: Yeah, Our Gang comedy with the little dog with the ring around his eyes.

STU: Right, right.

GLENN: Like giant ringworm. I was afraid of that dog.

STU: Eddie Murphy did Buckwheat.

GLENN: But he always talked about Spanky, right?

STU: But he's butt wheat.

GLENN: He's butt wheat and Spanky. I was looking for the fat kid with Spanky.

STU: Yes, I agree. I can confirm this.

GLENN: I can't take this.

STU: This crazy theory of yours.

GLENN: I need a dog business wit kit. That's what I need. I want to go to a house and get free dog biscuits. That's what I want. Because then I'm thinking about buying a house. If I could just get free dog biscuits if I go and look at the house, then I want to buy the house.

Here's the best one. Okay. $30 bottle of Chardonnay, Godiva chocolates, live guitar music, vodka tastings, cocktail parties, shoe shines. If you think you've heard them all, try this one. Roaming actors in costumes. Now, just when you thought you couldn't understand who would get in the car to go get some free dog biscuits to look at a house, who in their right mind says, "Honey, I'm just reading here in the paper. You know that house up the street?" "Yeah." "They're having an open house." Oh, I hate that piece of garbage trash house. "Yeah, me, too. But listen here. They've got actors roaming around in costumes." "Oh, honey, I'm getting in the car now." Who's going to that! Who wants to see the live actors? I hate actors I hate all of them. Who wants to see them in costume? What are they here, what is a costume? What are you? What are you? Well, I'm trying to guess. You're in a suit. Right, right. You're just in a suit. "Yes, yes." "And... I don't know. Who are you?" "I'm pretending to be someone who might be interested in buying this house." "Wow! That's so weird! Me, too! I'm just here for the actors in costume... and have you seen any free dog biscuits?" This is America? This isn't America! We're not the we're the land of the free and home of the brave. We're not the home of the free dog biscuit if you'll just come, please, please, please look at my house, please. Oh, I have more pride than that. Okay, no, I don't. No, I don't. No, the dog biscuits I don't have more pride in. The actors I do.

Wouldn't that be uncomfortable? Would that just be what do you say? You know, what do you say? You walk around and you're like, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, I thought this would be more fun than it really is. Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute, I'll go get another actor. "No, no, no, that's okay because it's a really weird, awkward conversation because they're just acting and I don't really know what to say to them. I think I'm going to go to that creepy cocktail party down the street where none of us know but there are no actors there, you know? Although the lady dressed as Anne Boleyn, that was kind of weird but... you know. Got any dog biscuits?"

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.
