GLENN: The exploding bats I think we have to I mean, it's a very big problem, the wind turbines now, the environmentalists. And don't laugh. What's wrong with you people? It's not cool to laugh at exploding bats. The wind turbines, the environmentalists have come out and said you can't use wind power, it makes bats explode and it's not because they run into the blades. Those are birds that do that. What, are you happy killing the birds? Now, because of the change in the wind or something, it makes the bats' lungs explode.

Yes, Stu?

STU: It's like the bends, Glenn. You know the bends, when you're like SCUBA diving.

GLENN: Sure.

STU: And then you have the whole bends thing with the lungs.

GLENN: Sure.

STU: And they don't and then the that's what's happening.

GLENN: Do you know what country kills more bats than any other country on planet Earth? Think about, which country, which country which country cares the least about animals?

STU: The least about animals, that would be the United States of America.

GLENN: And do you have any evidence of that?

STU: Yeah. President Bush.

GLENN: Dick Cheney, Point 2, Dick Cheney, George Bush.

STU: Donald Rumsfeld.

GLENN: Let me give you those are all great answers, okay? But let me give you this for those who want to go the unnecessary. Even mentioning this kind of stuff after you've said George Bush and Dick Cheney, it's almost what did Keith Olbermann say? It's almost foolish to have to say it out loud. But let me go a step further, okay? What is the problem with bats? Why are the bats exploding?

STU: The wind power.

GLENN: Wind power. What country is the number one generator of wind power on planet Earth?

STU: Oh, obviously France.

GLENN: No. No, no, no. Number one.

STU: Oh, the Netherlands.

GLENN: No. No, no, no. Number one. More wind generated power than any other.

STU: Finland. Finland.

GLENN: No.

STU: Sweden? Switzerland?

GLENN: No.

DAN: You are thinking too small. It's got to be a big country.

GLENN: Put these together. Who is killing bats faster than anyone else?

STU: Iceland is killing bats?

GLENN: No, Iceland is not it.

DAN: Australia.

GLENN: Guys! Let's start over. Stu?

STU: Yes.

GLENN: Why are the bats dying?

STU: The bats are dying because of wind power.

GLENN: Okay. What country kills more bats than anybody else? What country hates animals more than any other country?

STU: Spain.

DAN: Thailand.

GLENN: Okay.

STU: You are saying wait. Maybe I'm misunderstanding the question. You are saying because we know wind power is clean. It's clean energy.

GLENN: It's clean. So okay, let's try that. Okay, let's go that way. Because that means let me speak your language. Okay. What country, what country generates more clean energy from the wind.

STU: Right, okay.

GLENN: Than any other country, because it's because we're the leaders in the world, because the rest of the world waits for this country to lead the way. What country is leading the way on clean wind power?

STU: You keep putting it some weird way but when you say it that way, obviously Belgium.

GLENN: No.

DAN: Stu, you missed it. He obviously meant England.

STU: Oh, the U.K., was it Ireland? Or is it oh, idiots, idiots, idiots. Greenland!

DAN: Oh.

STU: Greenland.

DAN: Our bad.

GLENN: Am I being produced by Ben Affleck and Matt Damon? Okay, here's the deal. I'm just going to come clean with you. Surprisingly enough the largest generator of wind power, the country leading the way for the rest of the world is... America. The United States of America. That's this one. That's crazy. Who knew. You'd think that the rest of the world would be moving in that direction since we're leading the way. It's crazy. You'd think somebody would point that out. "Hey, good for us. We're leading the way." Hmmm. I didn't know that.

Here's when I found it out. Killing bats. Wind power's changing the pressure of the air around the windmills. I don't know. It might have been the aroma of tulips that stopped this from happening in Holland when they did it oh, so many years ago. But wind power here in the United States is actually killing bats. I'd like to know why you hate bats so much. I'd like to know how you can where you get off of saying, "I want to run my toaster. I want, I want my " well, why don't we just squeeze bats and use bat juice to run your microwave oven, Mr. Animal hate monger. Why don't we just torture bats so you can get to work in an air conditioned car. You clearly are not truly for the Pickens plan, are you? Oh, and you're going to destroy the bat population.

By the way, there was another study out that said that the vibrations are causing headaches and nausea and all kinds of things with people. Whatever. The bats are dying. And let me tell you something. You may not take the bat population seriously but maybe that's because you've never met a bat. Oh, you just think of them as this animal that has been made to dress up like a vampire. Sure, sure. Let the movie be your stereotype, okay? These are God's only handicapped creatures, all of them. Did you know this? All of them born blind. Oh, you think it's funny. "Oh, you're blind as a bat." Really? Funny, Mr. Hate monger that wants to kill them with wind power? That's why on tomorrow's program we're going to be asking for people who have sick mice or gerbils to ship us their eyes so we can transplant your dying gerbil eyes into bats. It's Bat Doctors Without Borders. It's a new program. It's a new program. We'll debut it on tomorrow's show. Just leaving it there, hate monger. I'm just leaving it there.

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety." Children have been brainwashed with racist critical race theory. And yet, Democrats want to use California as the test model for the entire country. Your state and your town are next. They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

Dave Rubin, host of BlazeTV's "The Rubin Report," moved to Los Angeles about a decade ago. In that time, he's watched it descend into absolute chaos. While most of his news and comedy friends have fled, Dave tells Glenn Beck why he's riding it out and how the rest of the country must save itself from progressive policies and "evil" governors like Gavin Newsom — or else the great American experiment will be over.
