Arguing with Idiots: How to Stop Small Minds and Big Government

by Glenn Beck

GLENN: Let's go to Jesse in Richmond. Jesse is going to what college are you going to, Jesse?

CALLER: Glenn, I'm going to John Tyler Community College.

GLENN: Okay. And your professor.


GLENN: We wouldn't say that he's an idiot, but he's been arguing with the new book.

CALLER: Correct.

GLENN: Okay. And one of your classmates brought the book in, which is your first mistake. You don't, you don't bring it you bring the list of arguments in.


GLENN: And you look for them in the footnotes at the end and you say when he says, where did you get that fact, you say, New York Times. And they're like, oh, well, yes, okay, New York Times. See what I mean?

CALLER: Yeah, yeah. No, I understand. I actually was caught on quoting the 5,000 Year Leap earlier in the same semester from the same guy.

GLENN: You moron.

CALLER: So anyways, that seems to happen. But it was funny because he tried to demonize you throughout that day. But the next class we came in on Wednesday.


CALLER: The extra credit that we have for our final is to find incorrect or errors in your book, any one of your books, and for every error we find in one of your books, we get an extra point on our final. And I was like, well, wait a minute, wait a minute.

GLENN: You have got to be kidding me.

CALLER: That's not fair.

GLENN: Ask him in fairness if he will do the same with Al Gore's book.

CALLER: I did that. I said, okay, so is it possible you're saying, you know, he's an extreme right side. Okay, fair enough. What about extreme left, you know? Can I take somebody on the extreme left and do that and he said, sure, but I can't think of anybody, so no. I'm like, what?

GLENN: I can't think of anybody? Okay. We can find them.

CALLER: So there goes a question for you. Can you find me an extreme left side?

GLENN: Yes. Michael Moore, any of Michael Moore's books, any of Al Gore's books.


GLENN: I mean, you will have so many points, we'll help you do it. You'll have so many extra points on Al Gore on his, you know, on his Inconvenient Truth.

CALLER: Now, the only catch, this is a political science class. So everything I find in there, I'll have to refute with my social science book. So it's typically going to be something that's more logistical than it is actually the world is coming to an end due to this catastrophic, you know, one degree in temperature.

STU: You know what's an easy one, Glenn, in Arguing With Idiots there's a whole section picking apart Michael Moore's movie about healthcare. I mean, it's point by point.

PAT: Sicko.

GLENN: There you go. There you go. There's your extra credit. Look, take my name off it. Put all of the footnotes on that chapter and turn it in. Done. You're not wait, wait. You are not plagiarizing if I give you permission, right?

STU: I don't know if that's the way it works. I think when you're in class, you're supposed whatever. This class, who cares.

PAT: Remember, remember when President Obama quoted Governor Duval in one of his speeches an exact quote and everybody said, you ripped him off! No, he told me to use it.

GLENN: So you have my permission to take the healthcare chapter which takes Michael Moore's Sicko absolutely apart and use that.


GLENN: But don't use the footnotes.

CALLER: Will do. One final note, something I thought was hilarious. When I was saying, you know, that he can't think of any, another girl that sits to the front of me ended up saying, you know, she just kind of mumbled this. She was like, well, I guess it kind of comes down to some are doing it for the money and just some are doing it to enlighten others. I was like... what? I guess that's suggesting that Glenn Beck's only reason to do it is to make money and everyone else is just to enlighten others.

GLENN: Well, you know, that is can I tell you something? That is the excuse of people who don't make money while enlightening others. You know? Because I, quite honestly I did it to enlighten others and make money.

PAT: You evil, evil person.

STU: Capitalist!

GLENN: For those people who just can't seem to put two things together and they're like, well, it's, it's... it's an academic book. No, no, it's because you can't write your thoughts down and also have it as a commercial success. Because you're an idiot.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: Okay. Jesse.


GLENN: You have to send me your paper and you have to send me the results on this, and I have to meet your class. You guys have to come up on a field trip here in New York because you sound like the guy that everybody's giving their professor crap. Like, nope, you're an idiot.

CALLER: There were about half the kids there that were just about laughing their heads off while we were trying to figure out what this extra credit was going to be.

GLENN: Does everybody in the class have a copy of the book?

CALLER: No, I can say that they don't. I actually don't have one. I was going to buy one.

GLENN: You are kidding me. How many people in your class?

CALLER: I would guess about 24.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. I'm going to put you on hold. Keith is going to get the address. I'm going to send 24 I'll send you 30 books, okay?

CALLER: Awesome.

GLENN: And I need to get the name of your professor because I'm going to make one out to him. Hang on just a second. That will get you extra credit.

STU: This is going to be constant F's. There's going to be a nonstop F parade in this class. It's going to be I would say that there's about a 0% chance that there's going to be a passing grade issued by this teacher.

GLENN: There's not a shot of there's not a shot of you passing the class at all.

All right, back in a second.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."
