GLENN: Last night we were out at a theater, Skirballs is the name of it, and we were at this theater at NYU last night. I said over a year ago, why would we book a theater at NYU. They said, oh, it's a good theater, blah, blah‑blah. And I said, it's at NYU. And they said, no, but it will be great. And I said, it's at NYU! And this is before Van Jones and his henchmen were all set to do everything in their power to destroy me. I just report the facts. They're in the politics of destruction. And so we thought, you know, this is going to be a nightmare. And as it turns out, it wasn't. Well, it was a nightmare because it's at NYU.

PAT: It was a nice theater, though.

GLENN: It was a great theater.

PAT: They were right about that. It was a great theater, very nice, very nice.

GLENN: I thought it was a great theater. I thought, you know, the NYU security was great.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: They had a big meeting, what was it, the day before yesterday. Didn't even invite the guy who signed the contract for me. We rented this theater. It was a private party. We didn't invite anybody because we knew it was at NYU. So we didn't sell tickets or make it open to the public. We just invited a bunch of people because I didn't want a bunch of protestors there for, you know ‑‑

PAT: Wrecking a national broadcast.

GLENN: Yeah, wrecking a national broadcast.

PAT: Be great.

GLENN: And Christmas, not a single word of politics in it.

STU: And you should seek redemption. That's ridiculous.

GLENN: Well, it's at NYU. There was that controversial, you know, philosophy of, there is a god.

PAT: Well, there was that.

GLENN: Yeah. So there was ‑‑

PAT: A lot of that.

GLENN: So there was ‑‑ they had this meeting. They had all these people come and they didn't even invite ‑‑ they invited my security chief and that's it but there were like a whole roomful of people and they were talking about the First Amendment rights. This is the day before the broadcast. And luckily one of my guys found out about it and he showed up and he said what the hell are you even talking about, First Amendment rights? Did we not rent this private hall? Did we not ‑‑ isn't this by invitation only? What do you mean First Amendment rights? Well, if somebody happens to get into the building and they want to be heard, then we're not going to ‑‑

PAT: You mean like they do for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and everybody else?

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Who has a little problem? They are not ushered out immediately?

GLENN: Yeah. So the protestors gathered last night, all of them had been, I can't say hired because I don't think money was exchanged but they were all brought on board by, you know, e‑mails from Van Jones' folks which, you know, was great.

You know it's amazing because there wasn't any problem until Van Jones got involved, or his people got involved. He's not involved at all. Not at all.

STU: Nothing to do with anything.

GLENN: Nope.

STU: He's never heard of any organization.

GLENN: No organization whatsoever.

STU: And he happened to find the organization, it was blind. Didn't know it existed when he created it.

GLENN: There was no pressure put on them or union pressure put on others, none.

STU: No way.

GLENN: These protests are completely organic.

STU: I normally wouldn't support ridiculous idiots that have nothing to do protesting a Christmas story.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: But when it's so hateful the topic when you're talking about whether God can give you redemption through the holidays, when you get to that sort of hatred ‑‑

GLENN: I know. Disgust.

PAT: You have to do everything you can to stop it.

STU: You have to stop it. You have to stop it.

GLENN: It is amazing because I talked to some people who are extraordinarily liberal because I have really good, I have really good liberal friends. Very, very, very, very liberal friends, wouldn't you say, Pat, some of my friends are ‑‑

PAT: Uh‑huh.

GLENN: Very liberal. And even they were saying, this is ridiculous. I mean, when ‑‑ and I can't share it with you now, but when you hear the whole story on everything that has happened just to bring you a story of redemption, when you hear ‑‑ and, oh, you will one day. You will. Say it like Yoda. Yes? Yes?

GLENN: When, when I write that story, and I'm going to make that one free, it's mind‑boggling, mind‑boggling.

STU: Look, you know, if it was just, you know, the whole god redemption thing, sure, it would be horrible for our country. But maybe we wouldn't go protest it. But when you get to the point of trying to encourage people on heroin to get off of it, when you get to the point where you are trying to change people's lives to try to stop them from killing themselves, that's over the line. I am going to walk in the streets until everyone commits suicide! I want everyone dead! I am protesting any sort of ceasing of a person putting some terrible thing in their body to kill themselves because, why in a free country would encourage such a thing?

GLENN: It's amazing, just amazing. And the Van Jones people and how they specifically targeted a charity, a charity that was involved in this broadcast, that story will also be told. But not today because it's Friday and we're going to have fun. So I just want to thank NYU for understanding the First Amendment and contracts. It was very nice. Very nice. I hate this city. Do they ‑‑ whoops, did I say that out loud?

STU: Things went well, though, right? Things didn't go very negative.

GLENN: You know what it is? You know what it is? These people are out protesting that I should move. These are college students. I'm so sick and tired of people who are trying to tell me about diversity and their First Amendment right to free speech. They tell me all the time, "This guy..." first of all, I'm a Holocaust denier. I'm a Holocaust denier.

STU: Are you really? I didn't know that.

GLENN: Don't you think that the ADL might be a little upset with people who say you are a Holocaust denier when you are talking about global warming? Isn't that a little upsetting to maybe the ADL?

STU: I'm going to go with no on that.

GLENN: I'm going to go with no on that. Except I'm somehow or another tied in by calling Barack Obama Hitler, which I don't believe I ever have.

STU: No, I'm pretty sure.

GLENN: I think I would remember that one. Don't think I've ever called him Hitler, and I'm called by these people Hitler all the time and yet nobody seems to have a problem with that. And I'm not stopping them on their free speech. You want to call me Hitler? Fine. You make yourself out to be absolutely ridiculous, but fine. Why would I stop you from doing that? You'll be exposed as an idiot.

STU: You are German.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh, I forgot all about that. Oh, my ‑‑ forget I said that. We've got to shut them down! I didn't, I didn't remember I was German!

PAT: At one time your hair was blonde.

GLENN: Blue eyes?

PAT: Blue eyes.

GLENN: See what's happening here? My gosh, I am the most dangerous man in America! They're right.

STU: I just ‑‑

GLENN: And what do you do with the most dangerous man in America? You silence them. You silence them! Do whatever you have to do to silence them! Get them to shut up! You have to get them to shut up! Oh, boy, that sounds strangely like Hitler, doesn't it?

STU: You just compared somebody to Hitler! See? You do it, too! So ridiculous. It's like, I just don't understand the mentality of going out in the middle of a Christmas show to try to protest someone who's got a bunch of people who have turned their lives around because of redemption.

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."
