Glenn Beck: Lieberman scolded by Dems

GLENN: From Radio City in Midtown Manhattan, hello, you sick twisted freak. Welcome to the program. So Democrats in the Senate are going to gather and decide how to slap the hand of Joe Lieberman for the ultimate crime of putting his values above the party. "There will be no dissent. Papers, please." You see, Joe Lieberman liked the guy with the R after his name instead of the guy with the D after his name. The party that is inclusive, the party that likes diversity, the party that would just like people to just stop hating people who are different would like to officially hate Joe Lieberman. Some might say this is a little petty, a little childish that they want to punish Joe Lieberman for supporting McCain but actually it's much, much worse than that. Remember, Joe Lieberman didn't leave the Democrats. The Democrats left him. He was their vice presidential nomination, nominee in 2000. He makes a decision to support the Iraq war, as do most other Democrats. His big problem was not making the decision to support the war. It was that he based his decision on principles and not politics. When other Democrats voted for the war, it was popular. When he voted for the war, it was popular but then it became unpopular. So when all the other Democrats saw that the poll ticks below 50%, it became an unjust war to the people who voted for it except for the people like Joe Lieberman, it was still just and legal, it was still based in principles, again what a jerk. So the Democrats decided to support nobody, Ted Le Mon, he is, by the way, still a nobody. He wound up being blown away by Joe Lieberman in the general election and then he had, Joe Lieberman, had the audacity of principles again to support John McCain because he takes Islamic extremism seriously, unlike the other guy with a D after his name. So what should the Democrats do for joltin' Joe Lieberman for the heresy? Well, you can no longer put him on the rack. They are saying that's not good because they are against torture. They don't know what to do. They're like, it's heresy, can we imprison him? Should they strip him of his committee chair? Should they spank him and tell him he was naughty? No, I think a lot of them might enjoy that too much. Should they tell him they don't want him around? "Maybe we can give him a series of wet willys, huh? Come on, guys." It's not exactly what they're doing it. It's how they are doing it. This is Senator Byron Dorgan from Minnesota. Listen carefully.

SENATOR DORGAN: What I think will happen on Tuesday is Senator Lieberman will make a presentation to the caucus and the caucus will by secret ballot decide what we might want to do and, you know, the Joseph friend of mine --

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop. Can you play that again? I'm sorry. A couple of words just jumped out at me. See if I heard it right. Can you play it again, please?

SENATOR DORGAN: What I think will happen on Tuesday is Senator Lieberman will I think make a presentation to the caucus and the caucus will by secret ballot decide what we might want to do.

GLENN: There it is again. I did hear it. They were going to do it by secret ballot. Huh. Secret ballot? That sounds downright unAmerican. Secret ballot? "It's nothing but this Bush and Cheney administration and their secrets. This administration has been too secretive!" They want a secret ballot. Let me just -- hang on just a second. Quoting the story here: Lawmakers will be able to write their vote on a slip of paper, whose papers will be collected and counted and the final tally will be read allowed to the caucus. Lieberman then will be able to know how many of his members stood against him but will not know their identities. Wouldn't know their identities? Why won't he be able to know who voted against him? Why would you need a secret ballot? I mean, you don't think that would cause problems between the other senators and Lieberman afterwards, do you? I mean, if he had a secret ballot, why not? What's the problem with a secret -- you don't suppose that some might vote differently to keep relationships intact, do you? You don't suppose that some of these slimy weasely senators could pressure others, do you? You don't -- you don't think that they are voting secretly so they can avoid all those problems and so much more, do you? Like arm-twisting? That wouldn't happen! Gosh, it's weird. You know what I'm thinking? I'm thinking, where have I heard this secret ballot? Oh, it's like conservatives, the way they feel about those, you know, those card check things that the Democrats are all for, where they want to get rid of the secret ballot, you know, so you could just unionize so people can -- but don't worry. We're talking about congress. The rules never apply to congress like they will apply to you. They're worried that maybe their relationships would go bad. What are you worried about? Some cartoonish-like thug from the union saying, "I think I'm going to break your legs if you don't vote for..." I mean, that's a cartoon. That doesn't happen in unions. When they got power and money at stake, you think they are going to threaten you? Sure, the secret ballot's going to be abolished and the unions can come to your house to record your vote. But it's not like what the hell these senators are going to have to go through if they don't have a secret ballot. They might not be able to sit in their government-sponsored and subsidized lunch rooms. Well, I mean, they could sit there but not pleasantly. Joe Lieberman would know. My goodness.

You know what? What's good for the golden geese in Washington is apparently too good for the lowly ganders outside the beltway yet again. But why should we be surprised? You know, it is amazing to me how the similarities of communism, you know who has control of this country because just as always, it is the communist that says, "Well, I'm different." You know, look, I need that special lane because I'm doing the people's work. I need that secret ballot. You people don't know what you're doing. And they will make all their special favors and their back room deals and they will gather their power and they will gather their money at the expense of you and your freedoms.

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
