Arguing with Idiots Video Contest


You could win a trip to NYC to meet Glenn! Learn how...

GLENN: And let me tell you something. This is not about our generation. This is about the next generation, and the next generation in this country, they have got to know the truth. We have got to teach them about heroes. We have to teach them about the founding, and we have to teach them the facts. That's why Arguing With Idiots came out, and we put it out and it has 25 pages of fine print footnotes. 25 pages of fine print footnotes. Number one selling book in the nation, nonfiction. Dan Brown is beating us in fiction. Common Sense is its counterpart. We put that out, what, how many weeks ago? Sixteen weeks? Sixteen weeks ago we put it out. Kevin runs the publishing division for Mercury and is the co author on Arguing With Idiots. We've been working on this book for over a year. But my goal is to be able to get it into the hands of as many people as possible. This is the book that will show you how to win the arguments, and it's not an argument against the Republicans and the Democrats. It's not. It's an argument for the truth. Where that leads you in the polling booth is your own decision.

So we have several things that we're working on now to help get this book out into the hands of those who need it the most, and one of those is I mean, if you look at the difference between Common Sense, Common Sense I wrote for thinking people that don't need a lot of pictures or anything, just want the facts. There are no drawings in there except for the gerrymandering redistricts. But there's no comedy in that book. That is just, "Here, here's the meat and potatoes" for serious people who are awake and go oh, dear God. And I made it short and I made it in a paperback so you could hand it to somebody, you could use it and say, no, no, no, the Republicans and the Democrats, both did this; here it is. And you could pass it to somebody. This one we specifically designed, riddled with ADD, we specifically designed to be easy to read for everyone. The serious thinker and the person that is, you're saying, no, no, you don't understand; here are the facts. And especially the 20 somethings, college students. Jon Stewart wrote a book that was huge with college students. This is the entryway for anybody who is struggling in college.

Now, you've put a contest together, Kevin?

KEVIN: Yes.

GLENN: What is it?

KEVIN: We're lazy, as you know. So we're sick of marketing this book ourselves. So we thought we would we thought we would have other people help us market it.

GLENN: Okay.

KEVIN: So the idea here is and all the information's on GlennBeck.com. But the idea here is you create a video. So if you are an animator, it could be an animation. We sent a guy to Berkeley a couple of weeks ago to talk to Berkeley kids and see how little they know.

GLENN: It's great.

KEVIN: You can do that kind of whatever you want to do that you think gets the message of arguing out the most, explains the book, promotes the book, whatever. Put a video together. Throw it up on YouTube. Come to GlennBeck.com, you feel like

GLENN: Hang on. Did we ever do the cover idea, the different cover idea?

KEVIN: Yes.

GLENN: At the colleges? We did? Do we have that coming up?

KEVIN: We did it at Berkeley. We're going to do it at a few more places. We want to get some

GLENN: I don't want to tell you what it is, but it's fantastic.

KEVIN: So whatever you can think of creatively to do as sort of a video format and, of course, there's 1500 pages of rules. So I would say crimes are not a good idea. I would say nudity is not a good idea. Yes, Stu?

STU: What? No, I didn't say that out

GLENN: Read the rules, Stu.

STU: Oh, okay.

KEVIN: So you create your video, throw it up on YouTube, fill out the form where you basically tell us where it is. Then we're going to judge them all and then we're going to pick our favorite ten videos. We're going to put them up on GlennBeck.com in about a week or so. And from that point your whole job is, if you're one of the ten finalists, your whole job is to promote your video. So this

GLENN: So wait a minute. How come it has to go through a gatekeeper like us? How doesn't it just let the people decide? Why are you so against

KEVIN: We hate democracy.

GLENN: Oh, okay. Good, I just wanted to know.

KEVIN: So at that point it actually and this was the hardest thing explaining to people of how this contest is different. It actually has no it does not matter how good your video is at this point if you are one of the ten finalists. It only matters how well you can promote your videos. You get to see what it's like in our shoes. It doesn't matter if the book's good or not. It's how you promote the book. So if you get your video linked from Drudge, you get yourself on the Today, whatever you can do to promote your video. Whoever has the most hits of their video according to YouTube by the deadline date, which is all again in the rules, will be the winner and you'll come and

STU: What's the prize, Kevin?

KEVIN: Well, Stu, I'm glad you asked. The prize is a trip for two to lovely Manhattan.

STU: Lovely Manhattan!

KEVIN: Where you'll dine at Glenn Beck's favorite New York City restaurant.

STU: Yummy.

KEVIN: You'll watch the radio show.

STU: Radio!

KEVIN: You'll take cabs.

STU: Cars! We won't pay for the cabs.

KEVIN: Walk the streets.

STU: You'll be using your own cash, your credit cards.

GLENN: You are making them to be a streetwalker?

STU: Apparently you'll have other duties you'll be doing at night to earn your keep.

GLENN: ACORN. We're in bed with ACORN now apparently. And then you come and watch the TV show. So you get to spend the day with us. You know, I'm looking for creative people, quite honestly. There are many reasons why we do things we do. I'm looking for very creative people. You get this video out, you get it into the colleges, you get it into the hands of 20 somethings with the best video you can make on YouTube and I'd love to meet you. You can find out all the details at GlennBeck.com. By the way, the book is available at bookstores everywhere, coast to coast. Arguing With Idiots.

On "Glenn TV" this week, Megyn Kelly, host of the "Megyn Kelly Show," told Glenn Beck she believes the Democrats' talk of unity is "all nonsense" and forecasted the "death of journalism" under a Biden administration.

Megyn cited President Joe Biden's unwillingness to make concessions that would help unify Democrats and Republicans as an example of how much he actually cares about unity, and added that, while she's all for lowering the political temperature in America, she also believes there are some personal freedoms that are worth fighting for.

"What's happening substantively is worth fighting for and it's not going to go away just because [Biden] gave a nice speech," Megyn said.

"I will object. I will protect my family and what I think is right over Joe Biden's need for unity, which is false anyway. 'Unify behind my agenda' is not a real call for unity," she added.

Megyn said she believes the Left has reached too far and "awakened a sleeping giant" in reference to the silent majority who should speak up, speak out, and refuse to be silenced any longer.

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

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.
