GLENN: 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK. Is the audio good enough to play of this Lindsey Graham?

PAT: I'm not sure. He's really sounds like somebody recorded this on a cellphone and so he's way in the background.

GLENN: Stu, can you get Kevin on the phone? Can you see if you can get Kevin on the line here. Tell me what he's saying here.

PAT: Lindsey Graham is doing, looks like a town hall meeting and people are yelling at him. Because, you know, here's a guy who was pro amnesty.

GLENN: Pro amnesty.

PAT: Voted for Sotomayor.

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: He voted for the stimulus package. He's just signed on for the climate change bill. And then he claims, you know, that he's this amazing conservative and, in fact, he called you out last week on the "Well, we're going to have him be a conservative" just because you said what you said on the remember that?

GLENN: Give me this again.

PAT: Remember what he said?

STU: Important distinction here because he did not say conservative.

GLENN: Let's listen to what he says.

PAT: Yeah, because it's

GRAHAM: Frankly I don't want to go down the road of thinking our best days are behind us. We need to act decisively. People are genuinely upset with how much money we're spending up here. But at the end of the day when a person says he represents conservatism

PAT: See?

GRAHAM: And that the country's better off with Barack Obama than John McCain, that sort of ends the debate for me as

PAT: Kind of ends the debate for me when you voted for the stimulus, when you voted for amnesty, when you voted for

GLENN: For Sotomayor.

PAT: For Sotomayor now and when you voted for the climate change bill, that sort of ends it for me.

STU: I thought you were talking about the one with the Republican Party, the voice of the Republican Party which you never claimed that you wanted.

GLENN: No, no. You know what, it's MSNBC and all these others, it's the DNC that wants to make me the voice of the Republican Party because they think that that's, you know, somehow or another, you know, a bad thing for the Republicans. I don't think you can, I don't think you can do more damage to the Republican Party than the Republicans are doing to the Republican Party.

PAT: Yeah, I think he says it at the beginning.

VOICE: Are you saying that Glenn Beck is bad for America?

GRAHAM: No, I'm not saying he's bad for America. You got the freedom to watch him if you choose. He did a pretty good job on ACORN. What I am saying, he doesn't represent the Republican Party.

PAT: Got that right. Yeah, you got that right.

GLENN: And I believe that Lindsey Graham now does represent the Republican Party.

PAT: And that's kind of what the people in this gymnasium are screaming at him.

GLENN: Yes, that is the problem. So what is he do we have any of this audio here?

PAT: We do.

GLENN: Is he running for reelection or is he just trying to run for his life? Do you know?

PAT: Not sure.

STU: Didn't he just get reelected? I'm not sure.

GLENN: I have no idea.

STU: Did he? I'll try to look it up.

GLENN: That's probably why he is trying to get away with this stuff.

(Audio playing)

PAT: You can hear people yelling at him and

(Audio playing)

GLENN: Okay, stop, listen to this.

PAT: So they are going to take this party and move it forward and if you don't like it, you can leave.

GLENN: Go back. What were they shouting afterwards? What was the reaction of the crowd?

PAT: He's going to find people, he's going to find people in Maine, in Delaware and whatever and then people are yelling, then move there.

GLENN: Move there.

PAT: Then move there.

GLENN: And we're going to take this party forward.

PAT: And if you don't like it

GLENN: And if you don't like it, leave, okay? Let me hear the rest, where the crowd says after he says that.

(Audio plays)

GLENN: They already have. Listen to that. See, stop. This is the problem with the Republican Party. They are playing they are Democrat Light. Did you not learn from history and FDR? Lindsey Graham is doing exactly the same thing that the Republicans did well, me, too. Me, too, me, too. Well, if we don't move, they are going to run over us. Me, too, me, too, I can do that; I just won't do as much. What, are you out of your mind, Lindsey Graham? See, this is the thing. Listen to the arrogance. We talk about the arrogance of the Barack Obama administration. Listen to the arrogance of Lindsey Graham: And if you don't like it, you can leave. Well, Lindsey, I think they have. I think they have. He says they're not going to become the party of angry white men. Oh, well, that's not too racist. What do you mean you are not going to be the party of angry white men? Do you know why the white men, white women, black men, black women, Hispanics, doesn't matter, do you know why Americans are angry? Because of attitudes like yours! If you don't like it, you can leave. Excuse me? Who works for who? You work for me, you little weasel. I've been paying your stinkin' salary! I have been paying I'm paying for your pension until the day you die! Are you excuse me? I want to say, "Are you talkin' to me? Are you talkin' to me?"

STU: And when you think about the list that Pat just, you know, went through of all these policies, policy after policy after policy, you have to ask the question, if you are going to be an opposition party of Lindsey Graham, why bother having an opposition party?

GLENN: Exactly right.

STU: It's just a pain, it's just a pain to go ahead with it.

GLENN: Right.

STU: Why is the R and the D? It's too many letters.

GLENN: Let's take one in between.

Kevin, Lindsey Graham, could we find a bookstore down

STU: Oh, boy.

GLENN: I'm just sayin'. Maybe in his, in the heart of his state that maybe has a lot of land around it where maybe I could sign some books, go down there and sign some books and maybe exercise my freedom of speech for, like, an hour, about him? Do you think maybe you could see if there's a bookstore that would be interested in hosting us for that event.

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.
