Glenn Beck: Dems in Desperation


Glenn Beck is seen here on the Insider Webcam, an exclusive feature available only to Glenn Beck Insiders. Learn more...

GLENN: Did you see, by the way, that this show is under fire today because we're using a clip from Martin Luther King there, now is the time. As if the left owns Martin Luther King's ideas. As if Martin Luther King's idea of "I have a dream, now is the time to make that dream," don't see people for the color of their skin but the content of their character as if the left owns that idea.

PAT: Not only do they not own it, we don't even understand it.

GLENN: They don't even understand it. It is incredible to me how. It is incredible for somehow or another I am under fire for right before Martin Luther King Day Glenn Beck comes out and uses Martin Luther King's words. Oh, the humanity, unbelievable. This brings me to what I believe is coming our way. John is now among three prominent Democrats not planning to run again. Christopher Dodd is leaving. How many of these Democrats are jumping ship because they see that it's on fire? The strategy is, for the Democrats, to do a couple of things. One I explained last hour and that is get rid of the faces that everybody says that guy's part of the problem, at least in districts where, you know, they haven't gerrymandered the thing so much and especially in the House where they haven't like, for instance, Barney Frank will never, ever leave. If you look at how they gerrymandered his district, he doesn't have to worry about anything. It's almost saying you, you're in Barney Frank's district but your wife lives in the same house, she's not. It's almost like splitting the beds, you know, the kitchens and the bathrooms in half if the family disagrees on Barney Frank. And there's a lot of these people on both the left and the right that are like that. But where they can't control the districts like this, where you've got Chris Dodd as senator, you've got problems. And these people have to go away for the good of the party. They've been good and loyal servants, but they need another good and loyal servant, and the party needs to reinvent itself without reinventing itself. It needs an image change because Barack Obama has destroyed the Democratic Party.

Can you imagine if George Bush was coming into his first year, after his first year in office with numbers like this with Republicans just jumping ship, I mean long term iconic Republicans jumping ship. Can you imagine what the press would be saying about the damage done by this president and his policies? You don't hear that. You don't hear that the Democratic Party is being decimated. And it is. But don't worry. They have a two part plan. One, ask those people to step aside because as I lined out for you, laid up for you last hour, there's a poll that came out about a month ago that shows that Republican voters want to vote for somebody, and this is the same with independents, they want to vote for somebody who has their ideals and agrees with them ethically and morally and in their approach to life. Republican voters want to vote for somebody, and this is the same with independents. They want to vote for somebody who has their ideals and agrees with them ethically and morally and in the their approach to life. Even if it means they lose. Democrats are cut from a different cloth. They just want to win. That speaks volumes. So that's the strategy of the Democratic Party: Win. Chris Dodd, step down, let somebody else, to quote Mark Lloyd, somebody's got to ask themselves who can step down so somebody else can have a turn. Richard Blumenthal is that answer and they're hoping that you won't notice that the party hasn't changed. It's the same thing, just a different face. Well, a different face doesn't you know what? It is another example of the progressive movement. They gave you the choice between Barack Obama and John McCain. In many ways they're the same person. They're just going to take you there slower. You know, John McCain is just going to take you to the same destination just a lot slower. Barack Obama's hyperspeed. I'm tired of those choices, and that's what the Democrats are going to give you now. Well, no, no, no, we're giving you a fresh face. That Chris Dodd, he's gone now. All right.

Here's the second piece of this puzzle. And I want to get out in front of it now because to quote Martin Luther King, now is the time. Here's what's going to happen. I believe Rahm Emanuel has gotten together with Gutierrez? Is that from Illinois? Is that the

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: Okay. He's the guy who's going to be writing the new immigration bill. The new immigration bill I believe is going to be just outrageous. I have no idea, but I would imagine that they're going to make it outrageous because this is the only thing they have left. They had global warming and we were Holocaust deniers. But global warming, I mean, have you checked the thermometer lately? Global warming nobody buys anymore. And the pushback on Al Gore, that thing is collapsing and it's collapsing fast. Do you notice in the last, in the last six months when Al Gore would speak, people would shout him down or they would push back? Reporters were even beginning to push back. That global warming thing is falling apart. So they can't shut down debate anymore and they're losing on that. You can't call, you can't call us Holocaust deniers anymore. Flat earthers. Because we're on to you. Healthcare? They called us all kinds of names for healthcare. But they haven't really used their most powerful card. But what they think is the most powerful card will be their undoing. But it is going to be a battle to the death, I believe. You just have to know which one is playing.

Here's what's going to happen. They're going to make the healthcare bill come out and they are going to redesign it. They are going to redesign this thing. I don't know how, but they're going to come out and they're going to make sure that it is absolutely insulting for people who believe in the rule of law but they are going to cloak it in just this mother and child sort of friendly wonderful, happy families just like you kind of nonsense. I'm sure those people are families just like me and you except my family came here legally. Here's what they're going to do. They are going to make this about race. And they have already smeared Fox and said Fox is not even a news organization, Glenn Beck is this and that. But they are going to make this into race. Anything that they can do to make it into race, to cry racist from the top of their lungs. Unfortunately they are going to fail at that because people, the game, the paradigm has changed and the only ones that don't understand it are them. And maybe we're too late to the game and they just, they know something that I don't know. Maybe they have already put the structure in place that is so strong that it doesn't matter to them anymore because they know how the game ends, with them in power in a transformed America. Maybe it does in their world end that way, but believe me that only makes things much, much worse for them because Americans are not Soviets. We won't live under that kind of rule. They don't understand that the paradigm is changed. They have pushed Americans to the wall. And Americans are good people. I personally want I agree with Bill Gates. I want it easier for companies and for people who are coming over here and they are the brightest minds. They are the strongest people in their home country. I want them coming here. Bill Gates begged George W. Bush, make it easier for people to get a certain kind of visa. I was with him on that. He was saying we're losing all of the best and brightest talent to other countries. I fought with him on that! We talked about it on this program! SEIU has, we have audio of SEIU where they are talking about their membership here in the United States is not just Mexicans who are from overseas but they're Europeans. They are Irish, they are English, they're Italians, they're Russians, they're Chinese. I mean, he's talking about all of them. Well, that doesn't there's no race there. What, I have a problem against people who are German? I come from German descent. Have a problem with Italians? My wife is Italian. It's not Mexico. It's not the color of your skin, to quote Martin Luther King. It's the content of your character. And I'm sorry, but you don't have the great content of character if you are intentionally breaking the law currently and you say, make special exceptions for me. This is going to turn into a race baiting contest. Because they need to energize their own base. Because the uber left has really kind of been lost. So what do they do to energize it? You've got to give them red meat and global warming ain't it now. What you do is you infuse millions of new voters by making them legal and at the same time you point the finger at your opposition and you cry "Racist!" Sometimes the racist charge needs to be looked at. Other times it's just a game. Watch for it. It's coming.

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.

I want to talk to you about something that probably didn't make a lot of sense a long time ago. In fact, I can't tell you how many program directors and how many stations threatened to cancel. Or how many calls I got from the average listener saying; What the hell are you even talking about when I talked about, the leadership of Martin Luther King.

I have done everything I can — as much as I possibly can — to teach you about Martin Luther King and nonviolent protests. And I don't think there's anybody in the media who has talked about nonviolence longer and more in-depth on commercial airwaves than me. Preachers, certainly. But commercial airwaves — I don't think anybody has.

Now I think many are beginning to understand why I tried to lay that foundation. I have told you since September 11th that I have this feeling you are going to be the group of people that will, in the end, save the republic.

I've always believed that. I don't know how it's saved. It might just be preserved in our hearts, I don't know. But I believe it now.

I never wanted us to get to this point — everything I've done is to prevent us from getting here. But everybody is so politically tied to their side that no one will let their shields down and actually listen to one another.

And we're at that desperate point now.

You are equipped to save the republic because you at least hopefully have a fundamental understanding of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. And you have at least a basic understanding of American history. More importantly, what makes this audience so phenomenal is that it is the most generous and service-minded audience of any show in America and perhaps the world.

That's part of what continues to be so frustrating about the Capitol invasion last week. Because you're being maligned.

You.

I know who you are. This is the most peaceful, generous, loving, God-fearing, authentic and patriotic audience in America. And you are frustrated and you are tired of being hit in the face and being called bigot and everything else no matter what you do.

I've been called an anti-Semite just in the last 24 hours by everybody, unjustly.

I get it.

You are now being tainted by the actions of complete imbeciles who do not represent you and me. It's not fair. But that's the hand that we're being dealt and God is in charge and He is not surprised.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights. These are the hallmarks of regime, after regime, after Marxist regime on the ash heaps of history. Now China is still there because they've taken the so-called free market and took the capitalist system and they combined it with their Marxist utopia.

I don't know what's going to happen to the people over there. Especially seeing that our high-tech has joined them to weed out the dissidents. But it's not inevitable that we join them.

And it is going to require us to take a stand. Just not in the way that most people — especially if they're angry — think is most effective. Look at the ratings of BLM. 78 percent of Americans, at the beginning of the summer, thought that they were swell.

That number is in the low 20s now. Why? Because violence doesn't work.

I don't know if you saw the fellowship of the ring, but if you did, do you remember when Frodo said: "I don't want to do this!"

He's lamenting having to face down the evil and he's just one guy. I'll never forget it because it was right after 9/11, that the movie came out. I'll never forget Gandalf's reply. He said: "So do we all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what we're going to do with the time that is given us."

We can't decide what others are going to do. We can't control the dangerous Orwellian darkness that seems to be descending on America. All we can control is our response and strive to lead by example. If you know anyone in your sphere of influence who might be planning to attend one of these armed rallies in the coming days, beg them not to go. Do everything you can to stop them.

That's not a way to take a stand and it will not protect anything you hold dear and it will endanger the republic. It is what the other side wants.

So how do we take a stand?

The first thing I need you to do today is to help lower the temperature. It has been so hard for me not to respond to people on Twitter who have called me every name under the sun because I quoted the leading Holocaust historian last night on Tucker Carlson.

But see, that wasn't an attack on me, that was an attack on Tucker. If you can scare the guests from coming on to Tucker, you destroy Tucker. That's what they're doing.

Do not vent your anger on social media. At this point, it is probably just going to get your account shut down.

I want you to write this down and I want you to keep this in front of you.

Blessed are the peacemakers. For they will be called the children of God.

That means something today, much more than it did six months ago.

Blessed be the peacemakers.

Be a peacemaker.

And this is the hard part, you can't disconnect. Because things are moving too rapidly. You must stay plugged in.

But I want you to reach out to someone in kindness on social media. Encourage someone. Do not engage with the darkness. Be the light in the corner of your world.

You need to be a leader for what is to come.

And I know I'm asking you almost the impossible. I know you're angry and frustrated and it is gut-wrenching to feel that you're powerless to stop your nation from what you believe is sliding into the abyss.

You are not powerless. You are not voiceless.

I believe it too, with everything in me. I wish I was wrong. I hope that I am. I pray that I am. But know this: You are not powerless. You are not voiceless. You may be the only voice that anyone hears. Voices like mine will go away. I am trying to think of what I need to share with you before, God forbid, that ever happens. Because I cannot live with myself if I talked about something stupid politically and I find my voice silenced and then saying, I wish I would have said this or I wish I would have told them that.

You wield more power than you know. Not because of your voice or being able to call your congressman. You're more powerful than you know because you understand the real problem in America. The real problem in America is not political.

It is spiritual.

If you're like me when you get angry, you think that you are going to take on this challenge on your own — you are not being humble. You think you'll fix it. Everything that is happening to us is because we are an arrogant, out of control people.

We must humble ourselves. Please, you have the skill and the strength to endure the fiery darts that are going to come your way or already are. But this is a problem with our hearts.

You cannot reach someone's head without capturing their heart and no one is going to capture anyone's heart through violence.

Start in your own home and then reach out and if you're able, serve your neighbor. If you can, serve your local community. You must be a beacon of light in a very dark place. I'm going to ask you to do something you're really not going to like. And that's how I know things are from God. When I hear something or I think something and I'm like — oh crap, I don't want to do that — and you just know it it's right. You just know it's what God wants. And you're hoping that maybe you didn't hear it.

And it's so horrible. Because it's the last thing you want to do. But God is unlike many of our churches and preachers, He doesn't tell us what we want to hear. He doesn't have to pay for the church or get collection. Or be judged by how many people go.

Rise above the fray, with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.

He'll say the same thing and he'll lose whole flocks. And they'll eventually start to go — oh wait, where is the Shepherd again?

But I have to tell you now some things that I want you to do. And they're not new. But I need you to hear me. I am asking you if you want to stand for the republic, I need you first to pray.

Pray like you've never prayed before. Pray for humility. Pray for guidance. Pray for peace. Pray for those people who you think you hate. Because you don't. Because hatred does not come from any good place.

Then I want you go out and serve someone in any way possible. On inauguration day especially, get your family and your children involved. Volunteer somewhere, take someone a meal. Do something to lift the spirits of hospital workers or your local police department.

Help a stranger mow a lawn, fix someone's car, pick up trash on the side of the highway. Do what you can do. But the most important thing is to do it with a sincere heart. And if someone asks you, why are you doing this? Just say, because I love my country.

Rise above the fray with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.
