Glenn Beck: Pirates of the Indian Ocean


Modern pirates without the cute hat or eye patch...

GLENN: By the way, let me talk about something else. It's amazing, Stu and I were talking this morning. Is it amazing to you at all because you thought I was crazy for -- and I know you still do. Is it amazing to you at all to see the perfect storm start to come on shore?

STU: I hate these analogies but I mean, yes, there's a lot of stuff that you --

GLENN: What do you mean?

STU: The perfect storm comes on shore. Jack Bauer fights it off. Stop the printing presses now! I feel, I don't know, I don't like the analogy. You have.

GLENN: This is the first time you've said to me you don't like the analogy?

STU: Oh, it just feels dramatic. I don't know.

GLENN: It's weird, though to see how many of these things -- do you remember when we were talking about pirates?

STU: I do. I can't remember what the context was.

GLENN: But remember, I'm like, the world is becoming out of control. There are pirates again. And these pay rates, if things -- do you remember that?

STU: It's ridiculous. But you are right, yeah.

GLENN: I know.

STU: Johnny Depp was going to come.

GLENN: I know, you always saw the pirates of, your winch will come down below. It's amazing. And now you are starting to see all of these things that we have been talking about just roll up onto shore. And it's damn spooky quite honestly. This thing, do you know that the U.S. Navy is saying, don't know how to deal with these pirates. And you know what's even more amazing is you've got a show on animal planet, this is, what is it, whale hunting? What is the name of it?


STU: Whale Wars.

GLENN: Whale Wars. What they are doing is they are coming in and these are pirates. Play one of the commercials for it, will you?

VOICE: Some believe whaling should stop. Others don't. Fridays, two sides collide. The high seas battle, the whaling has intensified. Japan says the activists are horrored. We have never stood by to see a whale die and we never will. But is one whale's life worth war? Until you find something worth dying for, you haven't really lived.

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop. Until you found something worth dying for, you haven't really lived. Ooh. Whales? I mean, I can't bring myself to say I love the whales. I love the whales just as much as I love any other animal and it's great and everything, but really? Really? That's your priority? Life? To go in and pirate ships for whales? Something that is legal. I know, I know, I know. Now, let me ask you this: Let's just draw the line a little bit more from the pirates on Whale Wars and let's just look what's happening here. Here are environmental extremists that say they are not willing to see any whale die and they will die for that whale. They are a hero. Tonight on the animal planet. At the same time we're seeing, you know, green week. It is the environmental movement. But it's not the environmental movement like, hey, I care about the environment, and I do care. I really do care about whales and other animals. I do. I care about the planet. But I'm not willing to go and be a pirate for it. Afraid of whales! I'm not really willing to do that. Although you do get a cool eye patch, but you have to earn the reason to wear the eye patch. No, thank you. Well, where else is this happening? You have William Ayers now and there doesn't seem to be a backlash of a guy who is writing books. Do you remember what it was like when Ward Churchill came out and we found out and we all went, wait a minute action wait a minute. William Ayers is worse! He is a guy who's actually blown up federal buildings and is on television now saying that's not violence. They are trying to paint me into a dangerous guy. And at the same time he's coming out and saying that people, that, you know, that Fox is doing horrible things, that it's a virus, et cetera, et cetera. Well, if you really believe that, why didn't you just blow up Fox, William Ayers? I mean, as long as people don't die. This is the kind of place that we're going to. And let me speak not to the left. Let me speak to the right and the anarchists and anybody else who loves the Constitution, those people who just love the Constitution. You're going to have to ask yourself at one point, well, what is justified? Is it okay to do any of those things? No! You work inside the framework of the Constitution! This is what we are! We have our revolution every four and two years. We have it at the ballot box. And we are headed towards a nation on all sides that are starting to think these things and think it's okay to be a pirate. Well, what about, why are these pirates bad? Because you need oil? I thought oil was bad. There is no right and wrong anymore. At least that's what people are trying to tell you. It's only what's popular. You can do whatever you want as long as it's popular. That's a spooky world.

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.
