Glenn Beck: Moms and Dads of America Have Had Enough




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on FOX News Channel

I've been thinking about the show with some of America's great moms we did last week and the response we've been getting has been overwhelming.

I went out to an event last night and something struck me: The amount of females in the audience was more than ever and clearly they were not there because of my molten hotness. I mean, look at me: Chubby, pasty, multiple chins — I could go on. They are there because as moms, it's in their nature to protect their children and they are realizing that this government is putting their children's futures at risk.

It's becoming clearer everyday that there is no way we can sustain this spending. It doesn't take a genius to look at all of the things our government wants to do (government health care, cap-and-trade, bailouts, universal college) and realize we can't afford it. Which means there must not be many geniuses in the fringe media, because they still think these are just anti-Obama rallies.

They are not.

Moms and dads and grandparents and kids all across America have, up until now, been on the sidelines, content to live their lives and just try to make it through the day.

But how could they remain on the sidelines when they continue to see things like the corruption at ACORN? Or actual communists like Van Jones and weirdoes like John Holdren (who has advocated disturbing population-control methods) and Cass Sunstein (who wants to ban hunting) are advising the president?

How can they sit on the sidelines when they keep seeing the indoctrination attempts on our youth? The anti-capitalist "Story of Stuff" video made by Tides, the "All Are Equal in His Sight" song about Obama.

Moms and dads of America have had enough.

They've put up with the "bridges to nowhere" and the airports to nowhere and the tunnels for turtles for too long. I met so many moms last night who are getting more involved, going to school board meetings and your eyes would bleed with all the stuff they told me they saw.

That's the good news: You are awake, America — especially you moms. I've been saying for a while now: I've had a feeling that you are the ones who will save the Republic; I don't know how, but you must consider yourselves Sarah Connor from the "Terminator" movies.

I don't know if you need to pump iron or know how to fight robots (although, probably wouldn't hurt because I wouldn't be surprised if everyone in Washington, D.C., were androids.) But I really think moms are the key because how can you paint a mom as an angry mob or dangerous or scary?

You can't; it's a losing battle.

Is this what inclusivity and tolerance look like? Fox News host Tomi Lahren was at a weekend brunch with her mom in Minnesota when other patrons started yelling obscenities and harassing her. After a confrontation, someone threw a drink at her, the moment captured on video for social media.

On today's show, Pat and Jeffy talked about this uncomfortable moment and why it shows that supposedly “tolerant" liberals have to resort to physical violence in response to ideas they don't like.

President Donald Trump has done a remarkable job of keeping his campaign promises so far. From pulling the US from the Iran Deal and Paris Climate Accord to moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem, the president has followed through on his campaign trail vows.

“It's quite remarkable. I don't know if anybody remembers, but I was the guy who was saying he's not gonna do any of those things," joked Glenn on “The News and Why it Matters," adding, “He has taken massive steps, massive movement or completed each of those promises … I am blown away."

Rapper Kendrick Lamar asked a fan to come onstage and sing with him, only to condemn her when she failed to censor all of the song's frequent mentions of the “n-word" while singing along.

“I am so sorry," she apologized when Lamar pointed out that she needed to “bleep" that word. “I'm used to singing it like you wrote it." She was booed at by the crowd of people, many screaming “f*** you" after her mistake.

On Tuesday's show, Pat and Jeffy watched the clip and talked about some of the Twitter reactions.

“This is ridiculous," Pat said. “The situation with this word has become so ludicrous."

What happened?

MSNBC's Katy Tur didn't bother to hide her pro-gun control bias in an interview with Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton in the wake of the Santa Fe High School killings.

What did she ask?

As Pat pointed out while sitting in for Glenn on today's show, Tur tried to “badger" Paxton into vowing that he would push for a magical fix that will make schools “100 percent safe." She found it “just wild" that the Texas attorney general couldn't promise that schools will ever be completely, totally safe.

“Can you promise kids in Texas today that they're safe to go to school?" Tur pressured Paxton.

“I don't think there's any way to say that we're ever 100 percent safe," the attorney general responded.

What solutions did the AG offer?

“We've got a long way to go," Paxton said. He listed potential solutions to improve school safety, including installing security officers and training administrators and teachers to carry a gun.

Pat's take:

“Unbelievable," Pat said on today's show. “Nobody can promise [100 percent safety]."
