GLENN: Can I tell you something? This book is going to drive the left out of their ‑‑ it already is. Just the cover is drive them crazy. Sucks to be them. All right. Do you remember Joe the plumber? He was a guy playing catch in his front yard with his son, decided to ask the president just one question. Hey, you know, I'm working really hard; you're going to take all my money. And here's what the president said. Here's what the president said. Here's what ‑‑ how much are we paying Pat just for the audio vault thing? How much are we paying him?

STU: $13 million.

GLENN: The phone system works better than he does.

STU: Wow.

GLENN: Here's what the president said.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: It's not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind it, that they've got a chance of success, too. I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody.

GLENN: Okay. Remember, it wasn't his question that made the news. It was Obama's response: Spread the wealth around. This is way back when Obama was denying his plans were all but completely based on soaking the rich and his cabinet members weren't admitting as much on live television. But still, the term, you know, just spreading the wealth, redistribute the wealth is something that the administration would never embrace, right?

PAT: Right. Is it Peter Pan?

GLENN: The czar of the day?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: No, it's really not time to guess. I was just asking a question in there. The czar that we have a problem with now has a problem with the way the Indians in this country were treated over the years.

STU: Is it Bob Uecker as Harry Doyle?

GLENN: No, it's the ‑‑ sorry, it's not time to guess. This czar is worried about Native Americans and how to bring wealth to them.

VOICE: And our Native American sisters and brothers who were pushed and bullied and mistreated and shoved into all the land we didn't want, where it was all hot and windy, well, guess what. Renewable energy. Guess what, solar industry. Guess what, wind industry. They now own and control 80% of the renewable energy resources. No more broken treaties. No more broken treaties. Give them the wealth. Give them the wealth. Give them the dignity. Give them the respect that they deserve. No justice on stolen land. We owe them a debt.

GLENN: Wow. No justice on stolen land. Really. Give them the wealth. Wow. Apparently the environmental movement is just a secret plot to avenge our broken treaties to Native Americans. Who knew?

PAT: Is it Warren Churchill?

GLENN: No, it wasn't ‑‑ I'm sorry, no.

PAT: Really?

GLENN: Who was the czar?

STU: Is it someone hoping to build an Indian casino?

GLENN: No. The answer to everybody's favorite czar... Van Jones. Now, I know what you are probably going to say, you know, this is old audio, probably before he turned really, you know, into a crazy radical and then he changed back apparently. We can't find any evidence of that, but it had to be the youthful indiscretion, right? Well, it's true, it is old audio, from way, way back. I don't even remember this president's first term. Do you remember the first term of Barack Obama?

STU: Oh, my God, yeah.

GLENN: It was that long ago. That long ago. Way, way back, in March of 2009.

STU: Wow.

PAT: I don't even, I don't even know what grade I was in. Like 37th or something, 37th grade?

GLENN: I stopped counting at 12th grade.

PAT: I don't even ‑‑

GLENN: How old was the president back in March? Was he like 4?

PAT: Oh, he had to be, you know.

GLENN: That's incredible. And if you think this audio is good, oh, wait. Coming up at the top of the hour. Audio that should scare the living pants ‑‑ well, I guess if you were caused so much injustice by the evil Americans that you don't have pants, maybe you won't be scared out of your pants. But if anybody has pants, I've got more injustices for you because we're now going to take your pants, as we scare the pants right off of you. At the top of the hour.

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."
