Glenn Beck: Green DNC


Join Glenn Beck's Carbon ONset Program

GLENN: I don't know. I don't know. But they are all out in green shirts and these green volunteers and these guys with the fanny packs and the green shirts without the ink on the fanny packs or, you know, no ink on the organic cotton baseball caps, too. They are all they're going through the trash can. You'll see them at the Democratic convention and you might say, how do you spot the loser. And you'll say, oh, the loser is the one that thinks they are making a difference by sorting through all of the garbage in case somebody put a spork in the wrong trash bin. So I know I like to go to conventions. Sometimes I don't even need a convention, not one that I'm actually attending. Sometimes I'll just go right here to the convention center in New York City. Sometimes I'll do it. Tania and I were looking for something to do this weekend and I said why don't we just go to the bus station, just go through the garbage cans because that is just such a pleasant experience, and look for sporks in case somebody put a spork and it can be recycled.

Now here's the great thing. They brought these sporks in because they wanted to make sure that the plates and the sporks were all biodegradable, and they make them. So they got them. And it's not like the hat thing. That was really complex. This one, they just shipped all of the eating utensils and everything, they just shipped them in from China. No word how they got here from China. I would imagine one of those big huge tanker ships that just burns carbon dioxide like crazy, just (making ship noise), for miles and miles and days and days. But I'm not sure. All of the sporks for the convention may have been tied to the feet of homing pigeons, little Asian homing pigeons: "Drop this plate off at the DNC in Denver." And the homing pigeon was like, "Well, I'm going to have to take a buddy because I'm going to get tired halfway through." And the buddy said, "Whoa, where would we stop?" And they said, "We can stop on one of those big tankers for a while and rest because they seem to be going the same way." And they said, "Not me, you won't get me on one of those tankers. They hurt the environment." That's why that bird's dead right now. But all of the birds that did decide to hitch a ride on the tanker carrying those little sporks on their feet, they all lived and I think that's fantastic.

By the way, there's no fried food at the convention because that's not healthy. How could you be saying you want universal healthcare but you then have fried food? Hello!

Let me ask you this question: Is it just me or do you feel somewhat the same as I do. Any party that says we're not going to ever let you deep fat fry Snickers bars or elephant ears or anything like that, I pretty much never join you or vote your way. They also would like all of the foods served on those organic plates. They are amazing. Stu, have you heard about these plates? Biodegradable.

STU: Plates?

GLENN: Plates, and sporks. You get them in China. So they are good for the environment.

STU: Right, because they run their factory cleaner than America.

GLENN: Yeah, and it takes nothing to get them over.

Anyway, so they got these plates. And they said on every plate there must be three colors. There has to be a combination of red, green, yellow, blue, or purple and white. I don't know what white food is.

STU: Rice.

GLENN: Rice, that's good. Salt, I wonder if salt.

STU: Probably not healthy enough.

GLENN: Probably not. Salt's bad.

STU: Plus you are hurting the ocean. What if you take the salt out of the ocean. Sea salt? My God.

GLENN: 70% of all ingredients should be organic or locally grown to minimize emissions from fuel burned during transportation. And probably you would also want to cut back on some of that fuel that was burned bringing the spork over. They also have greening workshops that have been held by hundreds of caterers, restaurant owners and hotel managers. The mayor of Denver, Mayor Hickenlooper, I just, you go ahead. You don't need me. That one's below my pay grade. You can do that one on your own.

STU: The question of when saliva life is above Obama's pay grade. But this joke

GLENN: Making fun of a guy named Mayor Hickenlooper, that's below my pay grade.

STU: There you go.

GLENN: You go ahead. You finished? All right. So Mayor Hickenlooper says, greening workshops is the new patriotism. Hmmm. Hmmm. Patriotism. Patria, doesn't that mean country? I thought we had stars on our flag, not a big planet.

STU: You know what I always found interesting myself, the old patriotism.

GLENN: That is so old fashioned of you. It's just so

STU: It's the one where you recognize the positive things that your country has done, in a sober way that you also recognize that we're not perfect.

GLENN: Wait a minute. So it's like you are just going up and going, woo hoo, I'm an American, and you got American flag T shirt and you're like, I got a truck and I'll just beat anybody up who says they hate our country. You mean that kind of patriotism?

STU: No, actually. What it is is

GLENN: How about this patriotism, where you are wearing a green shirt and you're like, "I'm green and I got these sporks from China. So I'm better than you. And I'm going to silence everybody who disagrees with me." That kind of patriotism?

STU: I think that's the new kind. I'm talking about the old kind of patriotism.

GLENN: What's the old kind in I don't know the old kind.

STU: It's a sort of weird tradition. I mean, it's antiquated, okay?

GLENN: Okay.

STU: But what is it, it's this tradition where you look at America and recognize.

GLENN: Whatever.

STU: it's the greatest country that's ever

GLENN: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Hey, thank you very much, thank you. I would like him to be silenced now. Listen, here's the interesting thing. They've got somebody who's a I'm not kidding you. They have a balloon expert. Now, I'm no balloon expert, but I am a thinker. If somebody came to me, let's say, you know, a person who's running the convention, Howard Dean or whatever clown they have. And they say he says, calls me up (making ringing noises), and I hear (duck noises), oh, boy, it's a clown on the other "Yes, Howard." And he's like, "Indiana and Ohio and Hawaii." And I'm like, yeah, yeah, I get it. You can name all the states. What do you need? "I need you to scour the country. I need you to call people in California and Oregon and New Mexico and Mexico." And you go, no, that's not a state. "Yeah, not yet. And Southern Mexico." Yeah, yeah, what do you need? "I need you, I need you to woo! I need you to find biodegradable balloons." That's when I would respond, "I quit." Okay, I thought I was here for the good of the country. I thought we were doing something, you know? House is on fire. You know, that kind of thing. But this person apparently, because they are part of the new patriotism, you know that part where I wear green shirts, and I've got a spork and I'll kill you if you don't agree that the science is settled," that kind of person, that person said, "Biodegradable balloons, I didn't even think of that. That is fantastic." So they bought a bunch of biodegradable balloons. But the Democrats are not going to just take somebody's word that they are biodegradable. I mean, anybody from ExxonMobil. (Phone ringing). "ExxonMobil." "Yes, do you have biodegradable balloons?" "Sure I do. I'll send you a box for a million dollars in tax money (laughing)." No, no, this he know how that game works at the DNC. So what they did is they had the biodegradable balloon person who ordered the biodegradable balloons try to degrade them. Now, normally you would say you just take out an ink pen and you just, you would write on the balloon, "Intern." And then you just go, "Hey, want to have sex with me in the Oval Office?" And then you'd say, "What, I'm degrading the balloon. What?" But no, no, no, no, no, not in the Democratic party. That balloon wanted to be degraded.

So what they did is the balloon expert took that balloon and then put it on a compost heap. Normally you would think that would be anywhere where they keep the platform or the positions of this party. No, this is an organic compost heap. I think this has actual bullcrap in it.

So they put the balloon there on the pile and then they wait and they watch. Now, here's the interesting part of the story that I found yesterday. The person in charge of the biodegradable balloons said they were continuing to pour liquid on the balloons and still they're not degrading. First of all, that's an awfully fast balloon degrade slope. You know what I mean? Isn't it? You think if a balloon would just go away and just become dirt in, like, a year, I'd be pretty happy. But I'm testing it out? And I'm testing it out by pouring liquid on it. As they pointed out on the TV show last night, I don't think I have ever said, "Whew," after a really hot day mowing the lawn or something, come in and go, "Whew, man, honey, I could use a big glass of, you know, ice cold liquid." I've never said that. What kind of liquid is it? Because if it was water, you would think I would have been pouring water on. Liquid. What kind of liquid would make a balloon degrade? I'm sure, I'm sure that kind of liquid is better than the balloon I'm thinking acid. "I'm pouring some liquid on it. Look at that, just smoking away. That's pretty good." What kind of liquid were we putting on that one? I'd just like to know, just one of those things. But again, I'm not a biodegradable balloon expert. My expertise really is in biodegradable ink, but I'm keeping that one to myself because that way they won't have any hats or fanny packs.

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."
