BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

GLENN: 888-727-BECK. 888-727-BECK. Let's go to Roger who's an Insider. Hello, Roger.

CALLER: Hi, Glenn.

GLENN: How are things?

CALLER: Wet, very wet.

GLENN: You're in Ohio. Tell me the situation.



A picture of the flooding in Findlay, Ohio

CALLER: I'm in Findlay, Ohio. I have a business downtown and I live, I don't know, five, six blocks from downtown area and right now I'm sitting -- I drove through my neighborhood and I just, I don't know what to say. I mean, I'm next to the river and right now, and I can see chairs and coolers and life vests. Everything you can imagine floating down the river here past me. These people here are amazing. There's nobody standing around waiting for a FEMA check. They're walking around like zombies in disbelief but they've got gloves on and they're, you know, hauling stuff out of their basements and sorting through what they can and it's just, it's just something else.

GLENN: Your business was -- I read an amazing story today on what happened up in Findlay and it's showing the downtown and how people are just trying to get the -- just get the water out of their stores. What store did you own?

CALLER: I own the bicycle shop in downtown Findlay and I'm five blocks from the river and in the history of history, it is -- there's never been, never been water there. So we were completely caught off guard. We've got -- I've got people there today that are, you know, with the pressure washers, you know, trying to clean this out and yesterday it was carpeted and, of course, we have to get all the carpet out and stuff. And I only had several inches. I just, there's so many people that have got it worse than me. I've got a friend that has a business on the other side of the river who had five feet in his restaurant.

GLENN: Holy cow.

CALLER: He's a good friend and I feel guilty about me working on my stuff when he's -- you know, I feel like I should be down there helping Greg but, you know --

GLENN: Well, I know I got several, I got several e-mails from Insiders yesterday to alert me of the situation that you were in, and I know that Insiders are headed your way today, it's my understanding, to help you out and maybe once you're finished with yours, you can go help the guy on the other side of the river.

CALLER: I just, I'm afraid I'm going to have a Glenn moment here and get emotional but the amount of support and encouragement that we've gotten you know from Insider community and people calling up and walking, what can -- you know, what can we do. My customers, I had nine customers show up yesterday with gloves on saying, where do you want us to start. I had people bringing trailers by and, you know, hauling bikes out and wet boxes out and, you know, I mean, this business is our livelihood. We were from flat broke and by the grace of God he gave us this business. I know we're supposed to be there and he's blessed us incredible and it's like, well, what's going on. I mean, you know, I just, I just, I'm completely, I'm overwhelmed by everything and just the amount of love and support that we've gotten and people calling from all over the country that know us and, you know, just calling up to say, hey, are you guys okay; can we do anything for you. You know, I just, I'm just speechless.

GLENN: That's fantastic, Roger, fantastic to hear. And I'm just amazed as you are every time. With the Insider community, there have been deaths in the Insiders, there's been trouble in the Insiders and they always band together and help out. And, you know, we were just talking to John Stossel a minute ago about, you know, who's the most giving, et cetera, et cetera, and taxes and FEMA is never going to change anybody's heart. I never feel proud, I've never seen a disaster where the FEMA trucks roll in and I think, yeah, we're America. Yet when I hear stories about, like you just told with your customers coming into the store with their gloves on and saying, how can we help, when I hear about Kansas where they have a tornado rip through and they stand around saying we're not waiting for FEMA, we're taking care of it ourself. When FEMA rolls in and, you know, all the trees have been removed and everything's been cut and they are already on the road to healing, it makes me proud to be an American.

CALLER: Me, too. Me, too.

GLENN: Well, let us know if there is anything that we need to do ourselves, if there's anything I can do. Is there any way people can be involved to help your town?

CALLER: You know, there's lots of messes. My sister-in-law was out of state and she's heading up here tonight and she said well, even if you don't need me, I'm sure your neighbor's got a mess that I can help clean out, you know. Just send prayers our way. I mean, that's the most, you know, the most powerful thing we can do and, you know, I'm not -- I'm going to be okay. I'm going to survive this. I've got a mess. I don't know how long my store's going to be closed and, you know, the economic impact is -- who knows. Of course, I don't -- insurance isn't going to help with the store or anything, insurance, big deal. I'm a survivor. I've been through -- I haven't been through anything like this but I've been through stuff before and I know we're going to get by. But, you know, the power that, you know, just pray for -- just pray for our community. We're a tough community. We're tight. We've got people walking door to door saying what can we do to help and that's what it's all about.

GLENN: Fantastic. Fantastic. Thank you so much. And we will keep you in our prayers and you stay in touch with the Insiders and stay in touch and let us know if there is anything we can do to help.

CALLER: I post some pictures every night of what's going on. You take care and thanks for having me on.

GLENN: Thank you. Bye-bye.

END TRANSCRIPT

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.

'We DON'T destroy books'

"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.
