Glenn Beck: Frog-gate




Did Glenn really throw a frog into a pot of boiling water?.... No.

GLENN: So last night I showed, you know, the fable, and it is a fable. In fact, it was in the original script before I threw the frog in, and I removed it and because I didn't want to telegraph that we knew. But it is a fable that you throw a frog into boiling water and it jumps out. That's not true. I don't know who did that experiment but maybe PETA should look into them. So we threw this fake frog, and we filmed it beforehand, and you'll see all the behind the scenes tonight. But we filmed it beforehand. We filmed the me reaching in to grab the live frog beforehand. And I'm telling you, Sarah, who is our director, she it was like Steven Spielberg last night. I actually, I actually walked over to open up the frog thing. Then they went to the videotape, the close up of my hands. I had then closed the thing and walked back towards the camera and I look up at the monitor and I see that my hand is still in the thing, you know, because of the videotape. I ran back to the thing and put my hands on that frog thing so when they went back to us, I was at that position and walked back.


STU: I was watching it on TV. I wasn't in the studio at the time.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Because I was in the meeting where we planned this thing.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: And I was like, I hope he comes out and clarifies. It looked too real.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: It did. It was seamless.

STU: I couldn't believe how real.

GLENN: It was really good. It was really good. She was Steven Spielberg last night. So I throw this fake frog. I say, you know, you throw it into the boiling water, and I have this little plastic frog, and we throw I throw it into the water and then for comedic effect I just pause and have that WKRP "I swear turkeys could fly" moment and I just said... "Okay, forget, bad example." And then I go back in and I say, forget about just like forget about the Republicans because many of them are fake, they're progressives. Forget about the Democrats because they're fake. I then say, the next line in the script was forget like the frog, forget about the frog because it was fake. I then also later say in that same segment that we knew that it was a we knew that was a fable, that they don't actually jump out, blah, blah blah, made a point. I come back, I fish the frog out. I didn't want to even take it out because I wanted the cameras to catch me fishing it out. I take the frog out, the rubber frog. I give it to John Bolton and I said, would you verify, ambassador, that that is a plastic frog. And he said, oh, yeah, it's plastic all right.&n bsp; So that's what happened. But even the Christian Science Monitor didn't do their homework. Their story is, if I may read the headline, Glenn Beck boils cute little frog to death.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: The story goes on to say conservative commentator was trying to illustrate a point on TV but it didn't work out for his point or for the poor little prop. Beck was trying to explain the size of President Obama's programs are so massive and coming so fast, the American people couldn't handle it, the American people are fighting back. How best to demonstrate this? Frogs. Beck likened the conservative uproar to Obama's initiatives to frogs that are thrown into boiling water, the experience is so shocking that frogs jump out. It's too much, too fast, he said, and the frogs, conservatives, aren't taking it. No, the American people aren't taking it. If the water was cooler, he says, it would gradually heat up and we would get the analogy, but it doesn't quite work. We know where he's going. Fail. The problem is his experiment failed.

STU: Did it?

GLENN: Beck had a pot of boiling water.

STU: Did it, media?

PAT: Idiots!

STU: Did it fail or are you proving it 100% correct?

GLENN: Beck had a pot of boiling water on his stage as well as a container of cute little jumpy frogs. He appeared to grab an unlucky one to begin the lesson, Barack Obama has galvanized the country, blah, blah blah, like, Beck tossed the little frog into the water. Oops. The problem is the frog stayed put.

STU: Oh, my gosh, did it?

PAT: Oh, no!

GLENN: So did we witness the senseless murder of an innocent frog, writes the Christian Science Monitor. Shame on you, media. Shame on you! Maybe you should watch tonight at 5:00. You want the truth, America? You can't go to the same old sources.

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.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?
