GLENN: You're telling me that the country that embraced this really, truly understood drill for more oil in ANWR? No.

STU: This was out as we voted for it and then the stupid President Clinton vetoed it.

GLENN: No, this is -- oh.

STU: Maybe he vetoed it because of this.

GLENN: This is where -- this is where, when we were in our cars and we turned on the radio, we should have known Jesus is coming soon, within -- when did this come out?

DAN: That would be 1996.

STU: I mean, you can't judge -- clearly we were gone by this time.

GLENN: Jesus in 16 years. From right -- that's when it would have been on the radio. Yep, 16-year warning.

STU: She is laughing, Glenn.

GLENN: I can't take it.

STU: You've got to think she's having a good time.

GLENN: Can't take it.

STU: She's having a good time, she's getting into it. Kind of nice.

GLENN: You know this song, was it from the Nineties or the 2000s? What was it? I hate the -- you know back in the old days when our great, great-grandparents were around? They called is the oughts. We don't have that.

STU: That's amazing. We went through the --

GLENN: We're almost through the decade and we don't know how to say it, the 2000s, back in the -- we don't have anything. Our grandparents -- that's another sign. That's another sign. Our grandparents figured it out! In ought one, in ought two. Can you imagine hearing somebody say that? Why? Why is that so bad? It makes sense. Instead we're like in the 2000s. That's 100-year span. That's a 1,000-year span!

STU: Yeah, we definitely failed. We failed as a society and I think Macarena proves that. I'm just saying the point of when we turned over is, I don't think you're right to say it's in the Eighties at all. I think it was long gone before that. I mean, you -- it's -- this is what I want. I want a full and open, honest debate about when the turnover was. I want 17,000 town hall meetings scheduled every 90 minutes until we figure this out because this is important.

GLENN: If I said no, would I be dodging that debate?

STU: Yes, of course you'd be dodging that debate.

GLENN: I'd be dodging that debate. I will give you that it's not Macarena, but I believe the end of all society started with Rapper's Delight.

STU: With Rapper's Delight?

GLENN: Rapper's Delight.

STU: Well, that's the Seventies.

GLENN: I know. That was just a, that was a coming echo. That was like, ooh, trouble.

STU: Is this any deeper than you just don't like rap?

GLENN: Nope, nope.

STU: This is a legitimate viewpoint. I'm just trying to get to the bottom.

GLENN: No, it is legitimate. It's legitimate.

STU: You think rap in particular, dancing rap about dinner at a friend's house is what ended the society?

GLENN: Uh-huh, Rapper's Delight. Play it. Do you have it? Sugar, Sugarhill Gang, Sugar -- stop just a second.

Dan, I have to question. How do you just happen to have that ready so rapidly?

DAN: Well, I don't know this is an issue we need to dive into at this point in time. I think we can just continue with your point and not get sidetracked. We only have a couple of minutes left here in the segment and I think --

STU: It's a very large computer system.

DAN: Thank you, Stu.

GLENN: Go ahead. See, right here. Driving in our car, we should have said, this is trouble, this is going to lead to nowhere good.

STU: If you've got a guy who --

GLENN: I liked this at the time.

STU: It's like 30 minutes long, too.

GLENN: No, I know. I liked this at the time.

DAN: 5:01.

STU: This is the short version, trust me. It's not 5:01.

GLENN: I liked this song when it came out, but we should have known better. We should have said this is not going to end well. This is like when it's funny, when you're watching your kids and they're running, you know, they're running with the croquet ball.

STU: The croquet ball? What kind of reference is that?

GLENN: Well, I just, it's a very painful reference because it was very funny when Raphe was holding the croquet ball and he was trying to use it as a baseball and I said, no, son, it's not a base -- and then he hit me in the head with it. What I'm saying is, we should have known then it's not going to end well.

STU: I disagree. When you can sing a song about not liking a meal at a friend's house, that is --

GLENN: Is that really what this song is about?

STU: Well, it gets there. He goes to his friend's house and the food is not good and he doesn't -- he wants to be nice because it's his buddy but he has to -- at the end it's too disgusting.

GLENN: I'm just saying that I believe this may -- I'm going to drop this marker in the water that this may have been the turning point.

STU: I want to fold debate, particularly lists.

GLENN: Bring it on.

(OUT 10:52).

(Music playing)

GLENN: No, now see Stu says that this is a sign of the end times.

STU: A little bit. It's hard to deny.

GLENN: I mean, who doesn't like MMMBop.

STU: You'd be surprised at the amount of people who would raise their hand.

GLENN: Yeah, but a lot of people in their college years, guys, had MMMBop posters on their wall.

STU: No one had that -- you don't have an example of someone who --

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Dan Andros.

STU: Dan Andros?

GLENN: The producer of the program here.

STU: How old are you?

DAN: Look, it worked at the time and I stand by it.

STU: It worked at the time what, to lure teenage boys?

GLENN: He was a very big fan of Hanson and now he's met Chris Hansen, the older brother.

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
