Glenn Beck: Callers fire up chainsaws on Earth Day


This message is brought to you by Evil Conservative Industries...

GLENN: Do we have Tim in Cleveland is a forest manager. He's cutting down trees today in celebration of Earth Day. Do we have Tim on the phone? Tim, are you there?

CALLER: Yeah, I'm here, Glenn.

GLENN: Hi, how are you?

CALLER: Good, how are you doing?

GLENN: Well, I'm very good. I'm very good. Where are you cutting down trees, sir?

CALLER: I'm in Ashtabula County, Northeast Ohio. It's a wildlife habitat. My landowner is a big hunter and we're going through his woods and making a couple of half acre clear cuts and that's where he will lay in wait for the deer to come. Deer are very curious creatures and they will come and investigate these clear cuts and he'll shoot them.

GLENN: This is like nirvana here.

CALLER: Yeah.

GLENN: This is not only going to hack off all the environmentalists but all the PETA people, too.

CALLER: That's exactly right.

GLENN: So Tim, how come I don't hear the chainsaws running.

CALLER: I can start it up right now. Do you want to hear it?

GLENN: This is too good to be true. Tim, hang on just a second because I want to savor this moment. Hang on just a second. Let me give our commercial for this half hour and then you start.

CALLER: All right.

GLENN: Stu, this is like Dan, I need Barry White music. This is almost full fledged light some candles, this is eroticism.

STU: I'm just glad it's so good for the Earth on Earth Day.

GLENN: You say is that and it sounds sarcastic.

STU: It sounds sarcastic? No.

GLENN: Give me a little Barry White on the program, will you?

(Break)

(Earth Day spoof)

GLENN: That's right, it is time to go all green. We go back to Tim who is a forest manager. He is cutting down trees in honor of Earth well, not really in honor. We could say in honor of Earth Day, can't we, Tim.

CALLER: Yeah, yeah, absolutely.

GLENN: In honor of Earth Day. That's fantastic. Are you ready?

CALLER: Yeah, I'm ready.

GLENN: Go ahead.

CALLER: I have to yell "Timber" first.

GLENN: You've got to what?

CALLER: I have to yell "Timber" first.

GLENN: Oh, okay. Don't you do that right before the tree falls?

CALLER: Timber! (Chainsaw starting up).

All done. I laid down an Aspen tree with Glenn's name on it and an Aspen tree with Stu's name on it. So you are both involved.

GLENN: That is fantastic. Those are little teeny trees. Don't you have like a big huge oak or something?

CALLER: No, no, we don't cut oak. We cut Aspen and stuff like that and we leave behind the good stuff.

GLENN: Well, I'm looking for somebody else that would be willing to cut down the good stuff, you know. They are not American Elms, are?

CALLER: Well, actually they are. Yes, they are.

GLENN: They are? Because I know those are like here in New York City, you go to Central Park, American Elms, those are a big deal because they are almost wiped out and everything else. So I mean, give me another Elm, just give me another American Elm.

CALLER: I want to hear another American Elm? Coming right up. Let me fire this back up.

GLENN: Because they are so loved here in New York City.

CALLER: Yeah, I know. (Chainsaw starting). I forgot the

GLENN: I don't think you are actually cutting any trees down. Stu, do you think he's cutting any trees down?

CALLER: Yeah, I'm cutting them down.

STU: They must be very small trees.

GLENN: Well, no, they could be small. They're small. They're junk trees. These are, what do you call those trees that are

CALLER: Cull trees.

GLENN: What do you call them?

CALLER: Cull trees, C U L L. Cull trees, poor quality trees.

GLENN: The ones that just kind of, they grow up in the forest, and they are little stupid trees.

CALLER: They are.

STU: This is what's positive here is when you cut down trees for a purpose such as what's happening right now, what usually happens, and this is why the tree density is so much higher in this country than it used to be is that there will be more planted, there are more I mean, when you cut down trees for paper, it's a positive thing because you wind up planting more trees and, you know, over time it's clearly been shown that all these environmental benefits that go to these companies that are supposedly cutting down trees, blah, blah blah, blah blah, they were going to plant them anyway because it's part of their business plan. So I mean, right now if you had only waited a little while to cut these trees down, maybe the government could have given you some money to replant them.

CALLER: Yeah.

GLENN: That's fantastic. Thank you, Stu, for that. That is beautiful.

STU: Thank you.

GLENN: All right, Tim, thanks a lot. I appreciate it.

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.
