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.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."
