Glenn Beck: Analogy of the Year

CALLER: Can I say one more thing?

GLENN: Yeah.

CALLER: When Barbara Walters looks at you with just nothing but contempt, I want you to know and I want you to feel like the Verizon commercial and realize that we're standing there right behind you and she's really truly staring at us. It's not and you are getting through, and I can't imagine. If I was to quote/unquote do you to one of my friends and I was to try to pretend to be Glenn Beck, what I would do, you know, the way that I would try to, you know, get you would be that I would say, really? And so you are just simply asking the question, you are asking people to, you know, come on, are we all cool with this? Is this okay? And so Barbara Walters is just angry as she can possibly be because you have the I got the word, but anyway, the temerity to question just the status quo. I mean, she's just bitterly angry at you for that? I don't understand.

GLENN: Well, you know, Jason, I thank you for that and I appreciate it and I really do appreciate it. The best advice given to me just recently was just keep asking questions. Just keep asking questions.

I was talking to somebody late last night and we were talking about the ACORN thing and I said, this whole thing is going to fall apart. The whole thing, all of this is going to fall apart. At the point that I can show people and I can't do it yet. At the point where I can show you this, this and this is going on, I can prove that these things are going on, which answers this nagging feeling that you have here, here and here in society, why are we spending so much money? Why is this happening? Why is no one paying attention to this? Why is the media avoiding? Why is Washington not doing anything about it? What do they get out of it? Those are the questions that everybody is asking. Something's wrong. When the answer is finally apparent, there's going to come a time to where and I'm beginning to feel it now, not just there but on other things. I have had these moments recently where I've said, oh, my gosh. Now, I haven't shared some of the things with you that I'm on the track on because I don't want to I don't even want to tip my hand in case they're wrong. I want to make sure they're right. And I have I mean, I had a meeting, a pretty big meeting yesterday just trying to find out who I can turn to that is just so buttoned up. I don't want to go to somebody I want somebody working with me that is that challenges me on absolutely everything, goes into this saying, "There's no way this is true" but is willing to look and really honestly doesn't have a problem with being wrong. Because I don't have a problem with being wrong. I'm not going to bring you something that is wrong, not on some of the things that I'm working on now. I'm just not willing to do it. I'm willing one of the things I'm willing to say, you know, I think this might be... not on this. But as things are starting to become more and more clear to me, I realize that if I can just show you in a clear way with evidence what's going to happen is the country will look at it because it will ring true with your gut, if you still believe in the truth, no matter whose truth it is, you will look at it and go, oh, my gosh, and then it's over. It's lights out. And I think we're getting there because there's going to be more and more pressure on the outside and there's more there's going to be more and more truth out there. And as those two things grow, like again with Craig T. Nelson. With people starting to say, you know what, I want none of this, it's going to escalate things. And when things escalate on both sides and this is why I've said no violence, nothing stupid, be very careful who you get information from, be very careful on what you do. If you think of, "I'm just, I'll start the ball rolling. I grab my gun..." you are going to discredit everything you think you stand for. Where somebody, when the going gets tough, that's when somebody makes a mistake. And my guess is they make it first because this is so big, so out of control, they are going to make a mistake. They already have. They just don't know it yet, and you don't, either. But it's coming. And it will just collapse on its own weight.

STU: I've got to say this caller I think has the analogy of the year because that Verizon commercial is exactly, it's such a great analogy because, you know, you talk about, you know, you're out here, you're on TV, you are saying all these things and there's all these people behind you, which is I think the way he meant it. But to go further on it, you could sit here and run your mouth on the phone all day. But if the Verizon people aren't there making it work, it doesn't mean anything. You are talking to yourself.

GLENN: Gosh.

STU: It's such a great analogy.

GLENN: You know, Stu, I was going to ask you, I woke up in the middle of the night last week and, my gosh, blubbering Glenn is here because sometimes things just click and I don't know why and they bother me for a long time. It just clicked. Woke up last week, last weekend, middle of the night. Clear, clear as a bell on a theory of support and foundations and I'm like, what am I supposed to what is that all about? You just, you just said it. What I woke up with was when you get up on a ladder, you make sure that the ladder is open all the way and those little arms inside are down and that way you can reach higher, okay? But if you really have to go up, what you need to do is you want to have people like you that are holding onto each corner of that ladder and holding on and bracing that ladder and you want to make sure that they really understand what's going on so you can climb up and get to the top, you know what I mean? That's our society right now. And the corners, the ladder that we're climbing on is the Constitution. The ladder that we're using to climb up above everything else is the Constitution, but not enough people have used it. Not enough people have even experienced it, and others have just been closing it slowly. You have to know what it is. You have to, when you pull that ladder out, you need to say, "Okay, wait a minute, hang on, how do we use this again?" Pull it all the way open and lock those things into place. You need to do that. But then you need to get some other friends and talk to them and say, "Okay, you know what this is? Okay, and I'm going to come up here but it's going to get shaky. Can you just hold this down?" We all work together but we all have to educate each other. We all have to be in this together. If we can hold the ladder, if we can understand it, find it, understand it, unfold it, lock it into place and then each of us work together to make sure we hold it into place, we're going to be able to do amazing things, amazing things. Wow, thanks, Stu. I thought of that this morning on the way in. What the hell was that ladder thing for? Thank you for jarring that. And thanks to the caller who did that, too.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
