Toledo: U.N. Approved

GLENN BECK PROGRAM


BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

GLENN: I don't mean to trash Toledo, and I'm not trashing Toledo. I'm just saying the things that need to be said because it's not just Toledo. It's all of these cities all across America. And you know what? It is happening in our country, not just the cities. Our industrial base is being eroded. It's being shipped overseas. Why? Because we now have the highest corporate tax rate in all of the world. We have higher taxes than France. How is that possible?

So think of yourself as a business person. Why would you go do business where your taxes are so high? Why would you do it? Why would you do it when your unions have so much control? Why would you do it where your healthcare and your retirement funds, you can't make that money? You can't pay for this stuff. Why would you put your business in this country when you can go to India? Why would you do it? If you're looking at it as a businessman who's a globalist, there's only so much that companies can be expected to do because they do have to answer to the bottom line.

Now, why in your wildest dreams would you jack up this tax rates in cities like Philadelphia, cities like Toledo, Ohio? Why would you do that and expect to have people move back in? They're not going to do it. As much as politicians want to think we're stupid, we're not stupid.

So what's the big plan here in Toledo, Ohio? Let me just give you -- what is this guy's name? Carlton? Carlton Finkbeiner. I mean, it's like a cartoon character running a city. Carlton Finkbeiner. This is the guy, by the way, who is actually on a Trivial Pursuit card because he was the guy who said, "Yeah, George, why don't we have dead people move up by the airport." So the question on Trivial Pursuit is, "Who's the dope that said, hey, let's have dead people move out by the airport because people who have ears, you know, they don't like the airport so much." "Who is Carlton Finkbeiner?" Yes, congratulations, you're a winner. Here are some other things he said. By the way, our affiliate, WSPD was told they couldn't attend the press conferences anymore of the mayor. I never heard that. We are -- I mean, why not just start flying the red flag? When did we turn into a country where the mayor can say, "By the way, you, you speak poorly of me; you can't come anymore. No soup for you."

Well, the reason why he didn't want, you know, WSPD -- I'm guessing. By the way, they won the lawsuit, right? They won? They can attend. I would imagine it's because they were the ones that were exposing things like this. First of all, let's play, I believe the dental hygiene cut. I've never had a mayor of a town that is in as much trouble as Toledo, Ohio give me dental hygiene tips, but Carlton decided to. Here it is.

FINKBEINER: If you do a very simple thing that doesn't even require a bead of sweat to be dropped, if you floss daily, you will add four years to your life.

GLENN: I want to be a dentist, okay? That's good, that's good, that's good, that's good. Big empty buildings here downtown. I mean, I got the no bleeding gums, but how about the big, you know, buildings that are empty downtown? What do you say we work on that one a little bit?

What's the next cut? Go ahead and play the next cut.

FINKBEINER: I think Bob Rhein bold would be happy to tell you about how bills are paid, but I actually do not know how bills are paid in the City of Toledo.

GLENN: He do not know how any bills are paid in Toledo. That would be -- I'm just a safety tip, Toledo voters. That would be one that I would look for in a mayor. That would be one qualification that I would say, "Let me see your resume. Do you or do not know how to pay bills in the City of Toledo?" I'm just sayin'.

And then, of course, here is the crux of the problem, and in city after city after city, and quite frankly this is exactly the Democratic and currently the Republican plan for the United States of America. Just extrapolate this when you hear the word "Flowers," think of healthcare. Listen to the plan to bring more business and more things down to the City of Toledo.

FINKBEINER: New infrastructure that is bright, that is clean, unflawed with flowers, flowering shrubs, things that look bright and fresh and colorful say welcome and we want a foot. And that includes banners and signage.

GLENN: That's great. That is great. Are we putting this up on -- are we putting the town of Toledo up for sale? Because it sounds like curb appeal to me. You know what I mean? If we could just, you know, let's throw some paint up on the -- somebody will buy it, you know. Let's flip the city. What is the name of that show?

DAN: Flip this house.

GLENN: It's like he's the host of Flip this City. Who are we selling it to? Madison, Wisconsin? What is that? I don't know. Detroit might like a slightly safer place to live. I mean, this is incredible. Well, it's beautiful. The flowers are incredible. Just, I mean, there aren't any cops around, but the flowers are beautiful, especially this time of year. And I see the big sign over the highway that says Toledo pride, and I think to myself, man, I'm proud of all of the businesses that have fled from this city. Boy, there's nothing. I was feeling kind of blue looking at the skyline noticing, gosh, there's nobody working in those buildings anymore. But then I saw the sign next to the flowers that says Toledo pride, and I feel so much better. My gosh, what are you thinking?

END TRANSCRIPT

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.
