Glenn: Idiot caller from Miami


Are we the country of Nancy Pelosi?

GLENN: Let me go to Al in Miami. Hello, Al, you're on the Glenn Beck program.

CALLER: How are you doing?

GLENN: Good.

CALLER: Hello.

GLENN: Yes, go ahead, Al.

CALLER: Hey, I listen to your show. I'm an independent and I'm kind of disappointed because it sounds to me like either you're with us or you're a communist and --

GLENN: Sorry you --

CALLER: How do you think you are going to get the country to, as you would like, come together? We're basically a 50/50 country. I guess 50% of us are communist.

GLENN: No, I didn't say that at all and I'm sorry you interpreted it that way.

CALLER: That's the way I interpreted it.

GLENN: Well, I'm sorry that you interpreted it that way, Al. Let me explain the reality. You can continue on with your own interpretation or you can gather the facts. Would you like the facts?

CALLER: Well, I will listen to what you have to say.

GLENN: Well, I appreciate that opportunity, Al. Do you believe that Nancy Pelosi is centrist? Okay, Al. Well, apparently we're not having a conversation. Al? Okay, now he's listening to the radio. Okay, can't have a conversation with you, Al. Do you think she's centrist? The answer is no, she's not a centrist. Do you believe that Barack Obama is a centrist? No. The fact is he is the farthest left of anyone in congress. He is the most liberal in congress. But that's not the center. Al, that's not the center. You are right. America is the center and I said Barack Obama people are saying that he's going to govern from the center. And if that is true, that's great. Great. And I will support him. Without betraying my own values, I will support him. I will support him as the President, I will support every policy that he forwards that doesn't force me to betray my values. You can label it any way you want. I do label it Marxism when you are talking about the redistribution of wealth. Now, you may say that's hate mongering, you may say, well, how are you going to unite. I cannot unite around Marxism. And redistribution of wealth is Marxism. Look it up. Anyone who is saying we're going to redistribute the wealth and anyone who says they want the Constitution changed to take those blocks away is a Marxist. I don't believe that's where America is.

I said earlier on the program, Al, but you don't want to apparently have the conversation, and you don't really listen. We're not the country of Jerry Falwell and we're not the country of Barack Obama, or I should say Nancy Pelosi because Barack Obama appears to be somebody who he's never been before. Let's take him at his face value that he's going to be a uniter, that he's going to rule from the center. Great. That's fantastic. I hope it's true. We're not Nancy Pelosi, we're not, you know, Jimmy Swaggart or anybody like that. We're in the center. We're center-right. Right now we're afraid. And when people are afraid, they panic. We have also raised a generation of people who have given trophies to their kids who came in 18th place. We have told them that there's nothing to strive for. You get it anyway, just by showing up, kid. "Look at you, you're special." No, you're not. No, you're not. Everybody is the same. It's what you do with your life. It's the choices that you make. We're all given the same kind of opportunity. We don't have the same skills. We don't have the same work ethic. We don't get the same results, but we have the same opportunity. That we can all agree on, I think, Al. I'd like to hear your response, but you didn't want to have a conversation. The first thing we have to do is have an actual conversation with each other. Thanks for your call.

Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss the Left's current efforts to rid the U.S. military of "extremism," Democrats' push to separate President Joe Biden from the nuclear codes, and how conservatives can use government to battle the far-left, their policies, and their efforts to control Americans.

Crenshaw called the military's efforts to rid their ranks of extremism, "so obviously and clearly politically motivated," as the entire premise is based on reports that some active service members and veterans participated in the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol.

"Mathematically, that's not a good indication of where active duty military stand or where veterans stand more broadly," Crenshaw said of the generalization that military personnel are extremists. "And I thought we were against that kind of profiling. Right? I thought that was against the liberal values that supposedly the Left stands for."

"But, Glenn, you know very well the Left is not liberal," he added. "The Left is very anti-liberal. And I think as conservatives, we have to say that more often. They have become genuinely authoritarian. Progressivism is not in sync with liberalism. All right? There's a big difference between an Alan Dershowitz liberal and a Democrat Party progressive. They're totally different."

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
