Glenn Beck: It's a Marshmallow World



Mark Steyn Single


A Marshmallow World

(It's A Marshmellow World.)

Glenn: All right. I just want to play this because this is a new song from Mark Steyn who is the -- I mean, you're listening to this and you're, like, didn't they just deem him some sort of a hatemonger up in Canada and try to pull his books back from telling the truth about what he saw about Islamic extremism and now he's singing It's A Marshmallow World. Mark Steyn, welcome to the program.

Steyn: Good to be with you. I believe I am the only hatemonger with a holiday single.

Glenn: What are you -- I love it, by the way, but what were you thinking?

Steyn: Well, oddly enough, once I had had that trial in Vancouver, which was back in the summer, and I flew out of Vancouver, my world was ready to explode with all of these hate crimes and I was having a drink with Jessica Martin, who is also singing on that record, over in London and we were talking about what would sort of cheer me up and the idea of actually doing a Christmas single and getting all of this out of my head was kind of a therapy for me after the hate crimes business.

Glenn: How did that work out for you, by the way?

Steyn: Well, we -- we were actually -- they acquitted us in Vancouver, wholly and properly, by the way, because it's the human right not to be offended. That's what Canada that has. They have this thing if you publish something and somebody takes offense, as these Islamist guys did, then essentially you're guilty, but they decided to acquit us on political grounds. So, we're now suing the queen to actually get this stupid law ruled unconstitutional and overthrown.

Glenn: All right. Let's switch gears here for a second. Apparently Dick Cheney, in a closed door Senate GOP lunch on Wednesday, warned the GOP, quote, that it will be Herbert Hoover time in aid to the industry was rejected for the bailout of the big three. This is exactly the same kind of stuff that they were saying about the bank bailout, but now they're saying it about GM. What do you think about what's going on right now, Mark?

Steyn: Well, I think there's no end to this bailout. It's bailout without end. We need to find a way to bailout from the bailout and actually, with respect to Dick Cheney, I think he's got it actually wrong here. You know, it's very interesting to me, speaking as a foreigner, but the Americans always talk about the great depression. In other countries, they talk about it as a depression. It started in 1929, the worth was over in three or four years. What prolonged it in the United States was both Herbert Hoover and FDR over in overinterfering in the economy to impede recovery. That's why it's a great depression in the United States and it's just a depression everywhere else.

Glenn: So, how do we get this message out, Mark, because we are -- I mean, you have -- you came over here. You love this country.

Steyn: Yeah.

Glenn: You came over here because you saw what was happening over in Europe and in England and you're like, Okay. Well, I've got to get over here. I speak to so many people who have come from Cuba or Russia or Poland or France, anywhere, and they come over here and they say, what are you guys doing? We've seen this movie before. This doesn't end well.

Steyn: No. And this is the last stop for most of us. This is as far as we can go. If you can't escape to America, there's nowhere else and as you say, we've all seen this movie before and in the 1960's, the British government attempted to prop up the British auto industry. They were big names, Triumph.

Glenn: Say "Jaguar." Say "Jaguar."

Steyn: Lovely stuff. And what happened was by the 1970's, if you wanted a new model car, you would put your name down on a list and you waited six months and they got back to you. It was the Soviet Union. The fact is you can't bail out three companies who are making cars at a price nobody will pay for them. GM and Ford and Chrysler cannot make an automobile at a price that any customer is prepared to pay for it. So, if you simply throw billions of dollars at the failed model, you've got more of the failed model.

Glenn: Mark, how concerned are you from -- you know, we started talking last year and, you know, we've talked about Islamic extremism and everything else and, you know, I've been talking about this perfect storm that's headed our way and I just -- I don't see how much more pressure can be put on this table before somebody comes and kicks one of the legs out. How concerned are you about a clicking -- a ticking clock here that is just starting to tick faster and faster and faster?

Steyn: I think that's the real issue. It's the connection between the domestic stuff and the overseas stuff is you get the sense right now that America on November the 4th consciously chose to turn its back on some of these unpleasant issues out there. I notice, if you believe what you read in the Israeli papers, that Obama has essentially hold the Israeli government he accepts the reality and the inevitability of an Iranian nuclear bottom. Mere not talking about them going numerous to you. We're talking about how to live with it. Nothing good is going to come up that and in a sense I think there is a moral issue at the heart of all this, Glenn, that when you look at the -- what happened to the big three auto bailout, they got greedy, they got comfortable, they set themselves up with pension plans and health plans that weren't sustainable. The same with the mortgage bailout. People got mortgages that were unreal. These things are very serious because they strike at the heart of the soundness of capitalism, just at a time when capitalism and free markets are one of the greatest things we've got going for us and he, up against a battle with forces who want to industry capitalism. Why we want to erode it from within is beyond me.

Glenn: Mark Steyn from Steynonline.com. We'll talk to you again, my friend. Thank you.

Steyn: Always a pleasure, Glenn.

Glenn: All right. Bye-bye.

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.
