GLENN: Try this story from the Politico: If you want to score a meeting with Representative Jim McDermott, know this. His schedule other office manager Elizabeth Becton is to be addressed by her full name. Not Liz or any other variant. An executive assistant at McBee Strategic recently learned this the hard way. A few weeks ago the assistant e‑mailed Becton seeking a meeting with McDermott and a client J.P. Morgan Chase. Days later the assistant checked back and unfortunately began the e‑mail with the disrespectful, "Hi, Liz." Becton curtly replied in the reply e‑mail only, "Who's Liz?" When the assistant wrote back with an apology, Becton turned up the heat. "I do not go by Liz. Where did you get this Liz information?" The back‑and‑forth went on for 19 e‑mails with the assistant apologizing six times if she had offended Becton. Becton lectured in the 19 e‑mails about name‑calling. Becton told the assistant that if someone said using Liz was acceptable, then they are not your friend. And if I wanted you to call me by any other name, I would have offered you that name. Plus, "It's rude when people don't even ask permission and t ake all sorts of liberties with your name." She added, "Please do not ever call me by that nickname again." Well, I am sorry, Elizabeth, Liz, Lizzie, Beth, Betsy, Betty, egomaniac, out‑of‑control bureaucrat! Liz! We're paying your salary. I need to see the congressman, Lizzie! In any other business in America, Lizzie would be fired. In any other business that would be unacceptable. In any other business you'd say this person has a personality disorder. This person is about to go postal! You took a ‑‑ excuse me. Hang on just a second. Liz, can you come in here for a second? "Don't call me..." Lizzie, come into my office. "Yes?" Did you just lecture in 19 e‑mails about your name to a client of mine? "Yes." Rational response: Why? No, no. Rational response is why? Is there something that I don't know? "He's been hassling me, he's been following me. He's been... whatever, he's been..." okay. Then I'll take care of it. The response was, "People don't call me Liz." Okay, Liz, you're fired. And I'm going to call security. In fact, I have HR here because I'm a little afraid of you, Lizzie. The last person that I know that had the name Liz was Lizzie Borden and that didn't end well! You'd fire this person. But they don't fire. They don't fire because they're better than you. They know. They know. "Riffraff that I have to answer the phone. Oh, jeez, the people are calling again. Don't you dare call me Liz." You're a psycho, Liz, a psycho.

Stu, why don't you call. Do you have his number? Can you get congressional McDermott? Is that his name, McDermott from Washington State? Jim McDermott, Seattle. I'm just assuming he's from the Seattle area. I don't know where the seventh district is. Seattle?

STU: Yes, it is Seattle.

GLENN: Call Jim McDermott's office right now and tell them we won put up with this Lizzie stuff.

STU: We mean business with full names.

GLENN: Call them. I would like to see if we can get Liz on the air. Just try.

STU: My guess is on Betsy isn't going to come on.

GLENN: Just try. Just call. Ask if Betty is there. Is Betty there? Betsy. Beth. Lizzie, Liz. I don't know, what do you call ‑‑ oh, Elizabeth, is she there? See if Elizabeth is there and then call her Lizzie. "So Lizzie, what do you say, babe?" Do you have the number?

STU: Yes, I do. Is this their Seattle office or is this her Washington office? His Washington office?

GLENN: I don't know. I would imagine that it's an executive assistant. So I would imagine it's Washington. Yeah, it would be the capital, the House.

STU: I don't have the Seattle number. Just give me a minute here.

GLENN: We'll take a break and then we'll call Lizzie, see how she's doing, see what's going on in her life. Wonder if anybody's talked to her. Wonder ‑‑ you know what it is? We just don't understand her. We don't understand what's going on with her life. We don't know all the struggles that she's had to put up with, people making fun of her name and stuff or whatever it is, making fun of her name or not making fun of her name. I don't know. Is she a minority? We should find out if she's a minority. Maybe she's handicapped. Is she handicapped? Does she have special needs of any kind? Because all of those things take a play. Maybe she's ‑‑ you know what? Maybe she's dyslexic. Is it possible that she was dyslexic and people teased her on that? I don't know. One leg shorter than the other? She has one brown eye and one blue eye. I don't know. Cryst al Gayle should have been in prison for what poor Lizzie went through her whole life with one brown eye and one blue eye and that song that was repeatedly singing over and over and over during my childhood, doesn't it make my brown eyes blue, it stopped with me. I've only got one brown eye and one blue eye! Crystal Gayle must be stopped! Oh, her life must have been a hell. Poor Lizzie.

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.

"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.
