GLENN: Oh, yes. By the way, are we still beating Ted Kennedy's book? I'm not sure. Last night they had a book release party in New York, and Simon and Schuster was there and they came up to me and told me that we're the number one selling audio book, the number three selling audio book and the number eight selling audio book for now 15 weeks they told me. I thought they told me 13 but it's now 15 weeks at number one on the New York Times list is Common Sense. And I think except for Dan Brown, arguing with the idiots is the number one selling book. It's the number one nonfiction selling book at least yesterday on the first day of the release of Arguing With Idiots.

PAT: Figures, did you even mention those? Unbelievable.

GLENN: Yeah, huge.

PAT: Unbelievable.

GLENN: So we appreciate it and thank you so much. And it's just a great book. If you want to know all of the arguments on your idiot friends.

PAT: You sure did get slapped down by John McCain yesterday.

GLENN: Yeah, I did get slapped down.

PAT: He was honored to have you say nasty things about it. That's what a pariah you are.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: (Laughing). And he loved your comparison to his hero Teddy Roosevelt. What a burn. You must be proud right now after the smackdown you got.

GLENN: Actually I am proud. Yeah, I am proud. See, you should read about John McCain's hero Teddy Roosevelt. In fact, you can find it on page 214 through 220 on Arguing With Idiots. I have quite a bit to say about

PAT: Like what? Like he was a model Republican? I mean, the conservative, if they were more like him, your party might not be in shambles right now?

GLENN: First of all, it's not my party, not my party. And second, he wasn't a conservative. The first thing he did as president was to fire off 40 lawsuits to try to trust bust and federally control large corporations. He said, he said that he, quote, had the greatest contempt for the rich. He also said, we grudge no man a fortune in civil life if it is honorably obtained and well used. It is not even enough still quoting John McCain's hero Teddy Roosevelt it is not even enough that it should have been gained without doing damage to the community. We should permit a fortune to be gained only so long as the gaining represents benefits to the community.

He was all about controlling people, how much money they made, what they did with it. That's not America. Do you want your government deciding whether your money is well used?

PAT: No. I want them to decide that you're just too fat and stupid and pull the plug on your hideous hideousness like a 109 year old grandma with a broken help and no health insurance. That's what I want!

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
