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?"

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."
