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


by Glenn Beck

PAT: Kevin in Columbus, you are on the Glenn Beck program.

CALLER: Yeah, I am glad I came right behind this veteran. I'm a veteran myself and I don't feel like my face was slapped. And the thing is this man can, no matter what, he can do nothing right for you people that oppose him. Just like when he showed up at the ceremony.

PAT: Wait a minute.

CALLER: Somehow it's a photo op. So no matter what he does

PAT: Hang on, Kevin.

CALLER: You guys are going to have something to say, I don't care what it is.

PAT: Can we

CALLER: And also he got credit this morning I heard from Ms. Palin about removing "In God we trust" from the front of the coin. I guess it's on the edge of the coin. Actually that was brought up in 2005 approved by President Bush. But

PAT: Wait a minute. Slow down, Kevin. Kevin, can you hang on a second? Hang on. I can't speak for what Sarah Palin says. I haven't even seen the story yet.

CALLER: You speak for what she says any other time. Now why is that?

PAT: I do not speak for Sarah Palin. I can only answer for what we're doing.

CALLER: You uphold what she says. You agree with

PAT: As I told you, I haven't even seen the story yet. Obviously he's not responsible for that. That was done we were seeing stories about "In God we trust" on the side of the coin instead of the front or the back a year or two ago. And so that's been going on for a long time. Listen, Kevin, I'm leading to a point here, if you would hang on. Hang on. Kevin, Kevin, this is the Glenn Beck program, not the Kevin program, all right?

CALLER: Yeah, but I called this program a couple of times and you guys hang up.

PAT: Kevin, I'm trying desperately to work with you here, okay? Will you allow me to do that?

CALLER: As long as you don't hang up on me.

PAT: I'm not going to hang up on you.

CALLER: Okay.

PAT: As long as you're reasonable.

CALLER: I am. Okay, go right ahead.

PAT: Now, if I can get in, a word in.

CALLER: You can.

PAT: I would like to know now, you said we don't give him credit for anything. What do you give Barack Obama credit for so far?

CALLER: Okay, I give him credit for having the guts to try to change a healthcare system for one that for so many years is sucking us dry. I just had an incident a couple of months ago

PAT: Wait a minute. I don't no soliloquies here, okay? No monologue. You give him credit for hang on, Kevin

CALLER: You are not working with me like you said.

PAT: I'm trying to. I'm trying to desperately. God bless you. I let you you gave the example! Now I'm trying to respond to the example.

CALLER: If you will let me

PAT: Sarah, can you bring them down for a second? Okay. You gave the example. Now I'm going to address the example. How can I give him credit for something over which I feel is about to destroy the country? Kevin, when you're trying to fix a problem and the problem is let's say, let's say that a car has bad tires on it, okay? Are you with me so far? You've produced a car. It has bad tires. You don't throw the car out the window. You don't demolish the car. You change the tires, okay? The healthcare system we currently have does have flaws. Let's say it has a flat tire. Let's fix the tire. Let's not smash, demolish and throw into the scrap heap the car. We have the best healthcare system in the world, Kevin. Do you disagree with that?

CALLER: I disagree with that, yeah.

PAT: Who Kevin, who has a better healthcare system than the United States of America? Share it with me now. Who?

CALLER: I don't know because this is the one I'm in. I don't really know.

PAT: How can you not say please don't make ridiculous statements on the show then.

CALLER: That's what you are doing. You are talking about

PAT: If you can't think of a single other country turn him down again. If you can't think of another country that has a better system, how can you say we don't have the best? I mean, there's a lot of countries that come immediately to mind. Cuba has a system like we're talking about going to. Great Britain has a system. Many other countries. Canada has a healthcare system that is run by their government, okay? We have the those, the leaders of those countries all come here when they're sick. All come here, from Prince Charles to Fidel Castro. Well, he didn't come here, but he went to Spain, okay? So he went elsewhere for healthcare because their system sucks, Kevin. So other than healthcare, what else has Barack Obama done that we should give him a chance on?

CALLER: I mean, everything that he's tried to do, you are not giving him a chance to

PAT: Let's not speak in generalities. I've given him a chance on Afghanistan; he's made no decision. The day he came into office, he signed the abortion funding around the world. He raised he's raising taxes left and right. He lied about lobbyists. Are you okay with that? He said he wasn't going to have a single lobbyist. He lied about it! That's already completely out the window. You're okay with that? You're okay with communist Van Jones. You are okay with Marxist Mark Lloyd. You're okay with extremist John Holdren, Cass Sunstein, Anita Dunn, all of these Maoists, these don't mean a thing to you, Kevin, seriously? You don't have any problem with this?

CALLER: You are making a mountain out of a molehill.

PAT: Communists are making a mountain out of a hole hill? Kevin, please, please, Kevin, Kevin, Kevin. Kevin! Hang on. I've been waiting for a caller like you for months now. Are you seriously going to tell me in the United States of America that communists and Marxists in the United States government, that's a molehill? Are you seriously going to get on this show and make that statement?

CALLER: That's right. Because I see it. I see it every day. I listen to you guys every day, and you are making the same accusations, getting everybody all worked up in a frenzy for nothing.

PAT: Are they false? Kevin, are they false?

CALLER: Most of them are, yeah.

CALLER: Are the accusations we've made false? Can you show gray) Okay, if there is any merit to any communists or Marxists in this government, if there's any merit to it, that's a molehill?

CALLER: You call them communists and Marxists. That's not what I call them.

PAT: No, no. No, no. Van Jones called himself a communist. Kevin, get off the phone. I'm done with you. You're pathetic. That is unbelievable to me. There is an example of an absolute blind follower of Barack Obama. No problem with his statement last Thursday, no problem with communists in the government. Self admitted communists like Van Jones. Haters of the free market system like Mark Lloyd, John Holdren, Cass Sunstein, manufacturing czar whose name escapes me right now. Are you kidding me? That's not a problem? Since when? 888 727 BECK. 888 727 BECK. Pat Gray on the Glenn Beck program.

The government of the Northern Territory of Australia is now running "mandatory supervised" COVID-19 quarantine facilities, and there are a lot of conflicting reports going around about what's really happening in these "camps." Are they internment camps, summer vacation spots, or something in between?

On "The Glenn Beck Program" Monday, Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere discussed the case of 26-year-old Australian resident Hayley Hodgson, who detailed her experience at the Center of National Resilience in Howard Springs during a recent interview with UnHerd. They compared Hodgson's description of the Howard Springs facility to images of bikini-clad Australians in quarantine who appear to be on holiday at the same facility.

So, what's really going on with Australia's COVID quarantine facilities? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Stu break down what we know so far:

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."
