Palin out, Glenn reacts

GLENN: The other thing I want to address is Sarah Palin. I will tell you that whenever somebody does something that makes absolutely no sense, they are either a genius or reckless. I don't think Sarah Palin is reckless. I don't think that Sarah Palin is stupid. In fact, if you saw the way she eviscerated David Letterman, I mean, that should tell you something about this woman's intelligence and the way she knows ‑‑ she knows how to play the game. She may not have known how to play the game before nationally. I think she went into this ‑‑ well, I know she did. She went into this whole thing with the same crazy belief that I had that people are genuinely ‑‑ generally good. Well, that is absolutely true in the regular world. But when you get into the media and to politics, not ever. You have to assume the exact opposite. These people are dirtbags and if one of them surprises me, that's great.

Somebody wrote to me on vacation and said, you know, what do you think about Sarah Palin, you know, would you endorse Sarah Palin, blah, blah‑blah. No, never. Not because of any other reason than these people have betrayed me and what I believe and what they said they believe over and over and over and over again. I don't believe any politician. However, with that being said if I had a gun to my head and had to pick one, I think I would pick Sarah Palin. Does that mean she is who she says she is? I don't know yet. But I know she's not who the media says she is. And who the media says she is is stupid.

Let me tell you something that went through my mind when I heard about Sarah Palin resigning. The first thing was, whoa, what is that all about? Is there another scandal, is there ‑‑ but I just heard the news and I'm noodling in my head, what is that all about. Then I read her speech, and I know people are saying, "That doesn't say anything or really..." yes, it does. It says an awful lot. I think ‑‑ and I don't know this, but I think that Sarah Palin has a similar world view of mine, and going this far. I said to you I don't know how many months ago, do you remember when something was in my head and it just kept ‑‑ I just kept thinking it over and over and over again and I said on the air, "I don't even know what this means yet," but I do now. The paradigm is about to shift. I didn't know if that was in my personal life, in my business life, in the country, in the world. I didn't know what that meant. I do now. The paradigm is about to shift. Everything you thought you could trust, you can't. Everything you thought was solid is not. Everything you thought was working does not.

Now we're at the beginning of this shift of the paradigm, but I believe Sarah Palin understands that and she understands that the two‑party system, whether it's in two weeks, two years, ten years, I don't know, but the two‑party system either has to correct itself which would be a major purge, or the two‑party system is broken forever. I think she knows that. I think what Sarah Palin was saying was ‑‑ or what she senses is, get out of the system. This is another thing that it became very clear to me as I was reading several things this ‑‑ and just letting things distill: Get out of the box that everyone else has created. Get out of the system. We are in this little box and we think we have to do things in this box. "Well, that's crazy. You'll never be able to do ‑‑ you've got to play by these rules." Why? These rules don't work. These rules are broken. These rules have been corrupted and they have been set up now for other people to win and an outsider never to win. They are currently, these rules are currently painting Sarah Palin as a crazy woman, as stupid, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. Fine.&nbs p; I ain't playing by your rules anymore. Do not laugh at Sarah Palin. Do not dismiss her. I could be wrong but I think she's brilliant.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
