Glenn Beck: Thank a Veteran

Glenn: There is there is of course, Veterans Day that is happening today, has been so lost in the the President still looking at all of the options for Afghanistan. I have a hard time remembering the veterans that have passed and just trying to concentrate on the veterans that are currently serving, those who are currently facing danger. Thank you, all the veterans. Last night I was I'm deciding if I want to share this. Last night I was in the hospital and I was having more testing done and I was in a CAT scan and

Pat: How many cats did they find?

Glenn: I'm sorry.

Pat: I know we asked you earlier. I forgot what the exact count was.

Stu: I think that line has been done.

Pat: I felt like it had to be done again.

Stu: Vitally important to the program.

Pat: Yeah.

Glenn: And I was sitting in this CAT scan or laying in this CAT scan and I thought

Pat: So, you don't remember the number? Is that the problem?

Stu: Why don't you answer our questions?

Pat: Do I have to put a red phone over here? I keep asking Glenn Beck the question of the day and I keep getting no answers. Hello, Glenn! Call me. Call me. Call me.

Stu: What's that voice you use?

Pat: Call me.

Stu: Is he working with cats?

Glenn: No cats were found.

Stu: Thank you very much.

Glenn: Wow. That works it goes away if you just answer the question. So, I'm laying in this CAT scan and I was starting to think about my grandfather and I thought about when he had to go in for exploratory surgery and I thought, boy, I don't know the last time I ever heard anybody going in for exploratory surgery and I started thinking of that whole idea of, yeah, we have no idea what's going on. So, we're just going to have to cut you open and kind of meddle around in there and see what's going on. Wow. The CAT scan, the MRI, the ultrasound. Really no more exploratory surgery. They pretty much know when they open you up. That's amazing. I had some testing done a few hours earlier by a guy who was three years in America. He was just a I don't know a physician's assistant. He was a doctor over in Russia three years ago. He's now going to school here in America and he's assisting and we talked. I said, "What do you think about what's happening to health care here?" "Well, I don't know. Very confusing. I don't I don't " "What do you think about Vladimir Putin?" "Many people think that he is this and a lot of people think he is that." And I said, "Once a KGB member, always a KGB member. I think that guy he is a real danger." "Exactly right." And then he opened up. He was used to keeping your feelings to yourself. We talked about health care. So, a few hours later, I'm sitting in a CAT scan and the nurse says to me, "Okay. I'm just going to go in the other room and we'll get these done." So, in the time that she left, I had been pondering exploratory surgery and this incredible machine that can look inside of me and I did spend a couple of minutes thinking about that damn GE logo, but I thought of the miracle of that machine and as she left, I put my hands up. I reached up and I just put my hands up on the machine and I ran them down that circle and I don't know if I said it out loud, but I thought it loudly, at least. Lord, thank you for giving me the opportunity to at least see a time when man can work miracles. I don't know how long this is going to last. We are so fortunate. What kind of things will our children have? Maybe much, much better. Maybe we go into a period where we lose it, where we don't have it, where we can't afford it. I don't know. But thank you for today. You know, the only reason why somebody came up with the MRI or the CAT scan or the light bulb, any of these things that we now take for granted, is really because of the soldier. The right to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. You can't kill me. You can't just throw me in jail. I have a right to pursue my own dreams. See, that's a guarantee, a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That's a guarantee not from the government but from God do you have those rights and so the government is there to protect those rights, so you are free you know you can leave your farm and nobody's going to steal your stuff or at least you're reasonably sure. You know you can leave or your family can leave and you don't have to worry about them just being picked up on the street and thrown in jail for no reason whatsoever. You have a reasonable reasonable expectation that you're not going to be just gunned down in the streets, because government is protecting those three things. I don't think they are anymore, but I think that the military is. I'm thankful for that. Today, as I think of the first Veterans Day, I just feel differently. It's not just those who went before that allowed the person to have the time and the freedom and the economic security to say, I don't know. I think I'm going to try to do the light bulb. I don't know. I think I can see inside without having to cut them open. Today I not only thank those veterans who made that possible but also I thank those people who are currently standing guard on those freedoms. They're more fragile than ever before. Inside our own gates and inside our own forts, thank you, from the bottom of my heart, from the bottom of my the depths of gratitude from my family and from millions of Americans whose voice you will never hear, thank you, thank you, thank you.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
