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.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
