GLENN BECK PROGRAM
GLENN: How many times have you looked at movies and said nobody is that stupid. Yes, they are! Because America is in a horror movie and I feel like -- we went on this eight city tour for the book tour on Friday and Saturday. Eight cities, shook the hands of over, what, 7200 people? Shook the hands of people and I only -- I'm not kidding you. They did the math on it. It was eight people per minute, but I had a chance to actually get a feel for people, feel for this audience. You get it. It's you and me standing around going, "He's right beside the bed!" Except we're shouting, "They're already in the beltway!" They've been there for a long time, and it is the perfect storm that's coming our way. And did you see who quoted this now? Pat Buchanan has a new book out. Excerpts are on the Drudge Report. He'll be with us tomorrow. His new book comes out this week. He's calling it the perfect storm. You're not surprised by it because you've been listening to it for a while. You're sick of me saying it, but I've got to tell you, it's true and more and more people are starting to realize it. Who was it last week, Stu, that quoted the perfect storm? Do you remember who that -- we looked at each other and went, what, the perfect -- I should have trademarked that, copyrighted that. Do you remember who it was?
STU: George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg? Maybe they should have trademarked it.
GLENN: They should have done it. And so the fringes are running the country and those with just a hunger for power, a hunger for money, a hunger for agenda, anything that is really not in the best interest of We the People really have their hands around our throat. And you know what? We can still win. Again go back to the movie analogy. You know how you think that the hero is going to die but you can't kill the hero. I know how this movie ends. This doesn't end with the hero dying. This doesn't end with America being gone. This ends with us fighting back. This ends with us standing up, and this ends with called, "Wait a minute, you only have power because I gave you power." That's how it ends. This one ends happily ever after, if we decide to wake up and turn on the lights, let the cockroaches scurry underneath the refrigerator and then all of us take some Raid and we pull that refrigerator out and we kill the cockroaches. I'm sorry. We should set them free. Should we set them free? Yes, let's set them free because they're, hey, cockroaches play a role, too. They are part of the planet ecosystem.
By the way, I can't wait to tell you, I can't wait to tell you the woman who wanted to be sterilized, had an abortion, then wanted to be sterilized. No doctor would do it. Finally she got sterilized. She gets a card from her boyfriend, is it her boyfriend or her husband. "You know, hey, congratulations; this is the four-year anniversary of you killing your unborn kid." She did it for the planet because having children is selfish and if we could just get rid of all the people on the planet, the planet would survive. Oh, okay, good.
You know the thing I like about my car? I don't know if you're like this at all. If I could just stop driving it, if I could just get rid of all the people around my car, it would last forever. Be great. If I could just kill all the people in the mall parking lot, I'd never have a ding in my door. Wouldn't that be great? We should just let all the people in mall parking lots die so I don't have a ding in my door. Jeez, for the love of Pete, who controls who? Which is more important?
So now the Democrats don't know what to say, and the reason why the Democrats don't know what to say is because they don't even know who they are. And again, Democrats, I don't want to come off -- if you're a Democrat, please understand I believe the same thing about the Republicans. They don't know who they are. And you know what, Republicans? You better find out quick or you have no chance of winning and then you leave us in hell. You sold your soul to the devil. The Republicans are the new Democrats. The Republicans have moved over and, you know, they're not even JFK Democrats. They've moved over so far left that they are the Democrats that Ronald Reagan threw out of office. That's who the Republicans have become. The Democrats have become -- you know, wake up to this one. The Democrats have become socialists. I think they're still in denial. I think the majority of Democrats are like, "No, I mean, no, we still have -- we're just using them for fuel." No, no, you're not controlling the extreme left anymore; they're controlling you. And the extreme left and the extreme right, trouble, real trouble because they're anarchists and you just, they don't necessarily have the same vision for America that you and I do. And because the Democrats don't know who they are, it makes them say things like, "I voted for the war." And then when it's successful, "Yes, I voted for the war. Yeah, go, troops, we're behind you! This is going well, yes!" And then when it starts to go poorly, "No, whoa, that's a problem. Well, I was for the war before I was against it but now I'm against it because we're not doing this war right. I wish that President would get rid of Rumsfeld." He did. "Well, Rumsfeld wasn't the problem. What the real problem was is he's not listening to the commanders. We need a change of course." Okay. Hang on. What? He listened to the commanders and he wants to increase? What? "Well, don't listen to those commanders increasing the troops. That's crazy. That will never work! That will never work. It's -- what, it's working? No, it's not. No matter what they say, they're lying to you. It's not working. Let's wait until the report." And then, "Huh? Report's out. Well, General Betrayus, he's betrayed you the. There's probably something weird with that -- huh? The Euro? Yeah. Nothing wrong with the report, either? It's even better now than when the report came out? Well, it is working! It is clearly working because it's working but it's not working because where's the political process and the progress? Where is... where is... we shouldn't have gone in in the first place!"
I actually heard a Democrat say today the surge is clearly working but that's not victory. Well, what is victory? Victory is when we come home. Oh, okay. I thought you were screaming the whole time define victory. For years I heard you define what a win is. If you knew the answer, why didn't you say then? If you knew that was the answer, and I mean, I think that one's pretty obvious. Yeah. I mean, you know, World War II, when we won, when the place was secure, we did come home. Well, no, wait a minute. No, we didn't.
That's weird. I don't know what position anybody holds anymore. I don't know if you're for it or against it. I don't know if you're for higher taxes or lower taxes. I don't know if you're for earmarks or against earmarks. I don't even know what earmarks are. When did they go from pork barrel spending to earmarks? You know what? Let me track it back even further. When did pork barrel spending stop being bribes? I'd like a politician that's against a bribe and that's exactly what they are. You've got special interests bribing the politicians. You have the politicians bribing their constituents. They're bribes! Let's stop with the earmark thing. Didn't they just rename them again, Stu? I heard somebody say that last week, that they are renaming -- they are not even earmarks now, that they are thinking about renaming them again. Can we stop? Happy holidays. Stop renaming things. It's Christmas. It's got Christ right in the name. Earmarks are bribes. Let's just be clear.
