Glenn Beck: Another tax promise up in smoke

America's March to Socialism: Why we're one step closer to giant missile parades

is now available as an audio book...

VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents more truth behind America's March to Socialism.

GLENN: Well, unlike his vice president, President Obama's very, very, very good at choosing his words carefully so as to always leave himself an out. Well, he didn't do that when he said this in Dover, New Hampshire on September 12th. Quote: I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains tax, not any of your taxes. He might be in sort of safe waters at least so far if he, you know, had only said federal income tax, but he didn't. And he's ready to use the liberal term to implement even more taxes that will disproportionately affect the poor. He's already done it by jacking up the cigarette tax, ironically to pay for healthcare overhauls. Now the Senate finance committee is looking at more taxes on soda, liquor stores, company payrolls and health savings accounts. Soder, I know, it's like I'm up in New Hampshire. You know, I know he's super, super smart and everything and so I apologize for asking such a dumb question, but I mean, us here in intellectual inferiority land would just like to know who's affected more by the higher taxes on cigarettes, soda, liquor, transfats? Ben Affleck or Ben Jacobson Jensenberg Steinbergjensen that's making minimum wage? You know what I mean? My thought‑challenged friends and I racked our feeble little brains for more minutes than I could count, which is only three. We still couldn't figure it out. Then we gave up and we went, you know, back to chewing on our fingers and, you know, that's probably best that we leave the heavy thinking to you and your uniquely qualified friends from Harvard. You know, you'll just tell us how to live our lives or better yet just regulate things so we don't even have to think about it. I'm just glad that you figured out that a soda tax will disproportionately affect the rich because I couldn't figure that one out. In fact, I'm looking at the paper. This is yesterday's paper here in New York. New or raise taxes? This is what's happened just in New York. Deposit on bottled water, $20. This is yearly. This is the average person. Deposit on bottled water, $20. Increased beauty shop fees, $25. Higher taxes on beer and wine, $200. Increased subway fare, $125. Increased bridge and tunnel tolls, $250. Cigarette tax hike, $548. Increased utility assessment, $48. Hike in New York City water bill, $70. Rental car tax boost, $15. Plastic grocery store bag fee, $10. Plus, existing cell phone, ATM, cable, traffic ticket and other fees increase, $200. A total of $1,511 for the average New Yorker for state and local taxes alone. Now, you add on what they're doing on income tax and then you add on what Barack Obama is doing in a new soder tax and what do you got? I mean, I can't wait to see the look on Ben Affleck's face, you know, when his financial life is just brutally crushed when he says, "I'm going for the Mello Yello, man!"

VOICE: Just in case you are not getting enough socialism from Washington, try Glenn's new audio book, the March to Socialism. Available now in bookstores everywhere. Free copies not available as part of the stimulus package.

First, President Joe Biden nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline, driving the price at the pump through the roof. Now, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg has floated the idea of taxing every mile you drive as a way to pay for Biden's massive infrastructure spending proposal. So much for buying an electric car to save money at the pump. It's almost as if they want you to feel the coming pain as deeply as possible.

California's Board of Education voted unanimously to approve a new, multi-million-dollar Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum, which will be offered statewide with many of the state's largest school districts making it a requirement for graduation. According to National Review, the curriculum is "probably the most radical, polemical, and ideologically loaded educational document ever offered up for public consideration in the free world."

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck reacted to the newly approved curriculum, calling it "the craziest, most terrifying story I have ever had to report."

Glenn read an excerpt from the National Review report describing the curriculum:

Students are to be taught that white Christian settlers committed "theocide" against indigenous tribes when they arrived in the New World by murdering Native American gods and replacing them with the Christian God. According to the curriculum, this replacement ushered in a regime defined by "coloniality, dehumanization, and genocide," and the "explicit erasure and replacement of holistic Indigeneity and humanity." But all is not lost, we are told. For students will learn that they have the power and the responsibility to build a social order defined by "countergenocide," which will eventually supplant the last vestiges of colonial Christianity and pave the way for the "regeneration of indigenous epistemic and cultural futurity."

Students first clap and chant to the god Tezkatlipoka — whom the Aztecs traditionally worshipped with human sacrifice and cannibalism — asking him for the power to be "warriors" for "social justice." Next, the students chant to the gods Quetzalcoatl, Huitzilopochtli, and Xipe Totek, seeking "healing epistemologies" and "a revolutionary spirit." Huitzilopochtli, in particular, is the Aztec deity of war and inspired hundreds of thousands of human sacrifices during Aztec rule. Finally, the chant comes to a climax with a request for "liberation, transformation, [and] decolonization," after which students shout "Panche beh! Panche beh!" in pursuit of ultimate "critical consciousness."

Glenn explained some of the horrifying details of the Aztec worship traditions California's educators and administrators seek to "regenerate," including human sacrifice by the tens of thousands, cannibalism, and the severe and prolonged torture and sacrifice of children.

"Those are the gods that they [the Board of Education in California] think really need to be worshiped and brought back in our understanding because that whole Christian God was only about 'oppression'," Glenn said sardonically.

"Gang, we are in biblical-sized trouble," he added. "We are under attack from the forces of darkness unlike anything I've ever seen before ... because the soul of our nation, and the soul of children, is at stake."

Cigna — the 13th largest corporation in the U.S. measured by revenue — has recently started teaching employees critical race theory. Those lessons, however, have been "quietly" protested by some workers who leaked lesson screenshots to the Washington Examiner.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and co-host Stu Burguiere discussed a lesson on "inclusive language" — and you won't believe which phrases Cigna classifies as offensive. Do you use any of these phrases in your daily life?

WARNING: Here's who's REALLY behind 'spooky, right-wing' extremism

Over the past year, the left has tried to paint conservatives as "spooky, right-wing" extremists who want to destroy the nation. But true conservatives know that's not true. However, there is a dangerous global movement that fits this "spooky" definition — masquerading as "right-wing" — and it's gaining momentum. It's called Traditionalism, with a capital "T."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," author and award-winning expert on the radical right Professor Benjamin Teitelbaum joined Glenn to define Traditionalism and explain why it's exactly how the left wants to paint conservatives — but that couldn't be further from the truth.

Teitelbaum said Traditionalism is the "most transformative political movement of the early 21st century" in his book, "War for Eternity," which Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald called "an indispensable text" for understanding "the most profound and tumultuous political shifts defining societies on every continent." It's a bizarre story, involving Steve Bannon, Hinduism, Hitler, mysticism, Aleksandr Dugin, the Constitution, and tons and tons of money.
