Glenn Beck: Olbermann doesn't vote

MSNBC's Keith Olbermannn

Glenn: Comrades, we now go to our favorite comrade, Olbermann, Keith Olbermann from State Channel 1. Yesterday he was -- he was on The View and he talked about his vote.

Voice: You never voted -- Keith, I was reading that you don't vote. Did you really mean that and did you vote this time?

Voice: I don't need. It's the only thing I can do that suggests even that I don't have a --

Voice: Then how can be angry and have a platform if you don't vote and speak on --

Voice: Are you taking a lot for granted?

Voice: No. It's a symbolic gesture.

Voice: That would favor Obama. I'm sorry.

Glenn: It's a symbolic gesture to show that I don't have a horse in this race. While I have put giant wads of cash down at the window, I don't actually own the horse. While I've been poisoning all of the other horses there in their stalls, I don't actually own a horse. Some people say to me, Keith, you know, one thing that might be good is if instead of making a symbolic gesture of not voting, which some might say is just flat out stupid, you might make a -- it even more consequential symbolic gesture and, that is, stop with the lopsided propaganda and that might -- that might be even more of a gesture that you don't have a horse in the race. I mean, I thought fondling yourself while watching the acceptance speech might have been a little over the top, Keith, it's good to know you didn't do your American duty and vote. So -- and I appreciate the fact that you did leave your boxers on for most of the campaign. I think that's disturbing, quite frankly.

Stu: I swear to you, they said that Olbermann hadn't voted and never voted in his life. Was he trying to maintain his aura of neutrality when he was on with Dan Patrick on sports have?

Glenn: Yeah, when he was on ESPN.

Stu: I don't know. Does he want Ross Perot or not? I don't know.

Glenn: I've got a -- I just need some neutrality here on this game. A lot of people say I'm a -- you know, I'm a Yankees fan and that's why I didn't vote for George Bush. What? Excuse me while I --

Stu: Why are you going to the window?

Glenn: Because I have -- you don't have his direct line?

Stu: No, I do not have his direct line.

Glenn: I'm Keith Olbermann's direct line.

Stu: Why are you opening the window?

Glenn: I'm opening the window because, see, we're on stop of the stage of New York City.

Stu: Yes, I know that, yes.

Glenn: You see what's right across the street?

Stu: That's 30 Rock.

Glenn: That's 30 Rock.

Stu: Uh-huh.

Glenn: You see that window right over there?

Stu: Yes.

Glenn: That's MSNBC.

Stu: Okay. I didn't know that.

Glenn: Hey, Keith, you're a piece of garbage! I can't hear him. I don't know if he's screaming back to me.

Stu: Yeah, I don't know, either, although I think you're aura of neutrality on Keith Olbermann might be gone after that.

Glenn: My what?

Stu: Your aura.

Glenn: I didn't vote for him or against him.

Stu: So, you're neutral.

Glenn: I don't have a Nielsen box. So, it's a -- Stu, it's a small gesture.

Stu: A symbolic one.

Glenn: It's a small, symbolic gesture just to show that I don't have a horse in this race.

Stu: Yeah. You've certainly made a symbol of something.

Glenn: I've spent quite a long time now, just in the last few minutes, just saying Keith Olbermann, a pox upon you and your house, but I'm impartial.

Stu: You know, there's another symbolic gesture that has been flashed at Keith Olbermann quite a bit: It involves one finger.

Glenn: That's saying you are No. 1, Keith. You are No. 1.

Stu: It doesn't involve a vote.

Glenn: It's symbolic, yeah. It was really good to be over at Fox this morning. Have you been over there yet, Stu? You don't want to hang yourself.

Stu: At the Fox News channel?

Glenn: Yeah. You know, I really -- and I mean this sincerely, I liked working over at CNN. I liked being the other guy. Do you know what I mean? I liked the fact that they'll be, like, no, that didn't come from a guy on Fox? No, huh-uh. A guy from CNN. I liked that a lot. The elevator rides, Whoo. Today I walk over there and I thought, I don't need a stool where I just have to kick it out from underneath me. Do you know what I mean? It was like such a -- wait until you go over there. They were, like, nice. I mean, they were excited.

Stu: Right. Well, I mean, you would actually be surprised how few people outside of yourself want to kill themselves on a daily basis in almost any scenario.

Glenn: Really?

Stu: Yeah. That's --

Glenn: I watch Keith Olbermann. Just a symbolic gesture and Glenn Beck, in a symbolic gesture, was watching Keith Olbermann and hung himself. The least I could do, Keith, just to show I don't have a horse in the race.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."
