Glenn meets 'fan' in elevator



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


by Glenn Beck

Glenn: Let's keep things in perspective. A little diddy from us.

Voice: Oh, some important night, the stars are brightly shining. It is the night of our dear person's birth. Long lay the world in goodness, challenged activity pining, until he appeared and the internal wellness unit felt its worth. A thrill of hope, the weary world is partying, for yonder breaks a new and happy morn. Fall is a great time of year. Oh, hear the non‑supernatural voices. Oh, night that was dark. Oh, night when a nondescript infant was born. Oh, night that was dark. Oh, oh, oh, night when a nondescript infant was born.

Glenn: Oh, I think we can all, we can all get around that song, can't we, really? I walked in an elevator last night. It was about 9:00. I was real tired, had just finished the Christmas special which you don't want to miss. I mean, we had, we had a gospel choir from Brooklyn that was on fire! Andy Williams was there. John Rich was there. It's going to air on this coming Saturday and then it will air again on Christmas and it is a great, great special. But I was ‑‑ so, I'm in the Christmas mood and we had the set decorated like you wouldn't believe. I mean, it was really great. I get into, I get into the elevator to go upstairs and go to bed. I get into the elevator, and here's this guy. I think it's Ozzy Osbourne. He looks just like Ozzy Osbourne, but then he speaks clearly. And he says, "Hum." And I'm like, Oh, geez.

Pat: When it starts with "hum," it's probably not good.

Stu: I like to start conversations with words and not ‑‑

Pat: Yeah.

Glenn: "Hum."

Pat: Yeah.

Glenn: And I just got in. Now, I'm with my daughters. I'm with my family and he says, "I'm a very liberal New Yorker." And I said, "That's so nice. Nice to meet you. I'm a very conservative New Yorker." And he says, "Wouldn't you say ‑‑" and his wife says, "Please, honey, don't." "No, no. Wouldn't you say the problem with this country is too many ‑‑ too many ideas like yours?"

Stu: Yes! Who wouldn't answer "yes" to that?

Pat: Somebody finally gets it.

Stu: That's what we've been saying every day!

Pat: Right. I love being wrong.

Stu: And I haven't changed because I want to be wrong and I want to ruin the country.

Pat: Yeah.

Glenn: And I said, "Do you know what I think the problem is, is there is a lack of distrust of people being decent to one another and there is a lack of honor in Washington on all sides and when honest people, not just trying to make their point, have honest conversations, not just trying to make their point or be right, when those people sit down to the table, this country can accomplish anything."

Stu: Wow. You were gripped by the season.

Glenn: Yes, I was.

Stu: That was a very nice response.

Glenn: Do you know what he said? "Hum." That was the first part. "Hum. You better watch yourself."

Pat: Elevator doors open. He got off.

Glenn: And to the millions of other people around the country, thank you. Merry Christmas.

Stu: That's a happy ending.

Glenn: Yeah, it was. It was. And I thought, if we could just have some holiday, not Christmas, holiday music, to where that guy and I, we can all celebrate the 25th of December. You know what I mean? Where we could all together go, Hum. Hum. Music, good. Hum.

Voice: Oh, come all you people, joyful and triumphant. Oh, come you, oh, come you to Los Angeles. Come and behold this young person, born the kid of parents. Oh, come let us look at him or her. Oh, come let us look at him or her. Oh, come let us look at him or her, Christ, the average kid of earthly parents.

Glenn: Hum, hum, hum.

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:
