Glenn Beck:To census, or not to census?



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

GLENN: We have an update on the census. Apparently the census has come out.

PAT: Yeah, and there's a, there's a little confusion because they have three boxes you can check if you're a certain race.

STU: Are you afraid to say the race?

PAT: I'm afraid because I don't know what the race is because there's three different terms for them: Black, African American, or Negro. And so there are

GLENN: Okay. An African American is a bogus PC made up term.

PAT: Yep.

GLENN: I mean, that's not a race. That is, your ancestry is from Africa.

STU: Africa.

GLENN: And now you live in America, okay? So you were brought over, either your family was brought over through the slave trade or you were born here and your family immigrated here or whatever.

STU: Right.

GLENN: But that is not a race.

STU: And it's a constantly misapplied term, too. It's just like we talked about a case one time where a Jamaican who had come here and immigrated from Jamaica was being called an African American and he was like, I'm not an African I'm a Jamaican American if anything.

GLENN: Where was Kofi Annan from? He's black, right, Kofi Annan?

PAT: Somewhere in Africa, I think, wasn't it?

GLENN: He is not an African American.

PAT: No. And then somebody who is African American like Charlize Theron is not referred to as such.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh, yeah.

PAT: You know, so it's really

GLENN: She's from Africa.

PAT: She's from South Africa, now she's American, she's African American. But you would never call her that. It's a silly term.

STU: But it is common phrasing.

GLENN: Negro used to be. Is it still? I mean, it used to be.

PAT: It used to be accepted and that's the excuse they use because there's some

GLENN: No, no. Not acceptable. Is that still the clinical term?

PAT: I don't know.

GLENN: For I mean, I don't know, either.

PAT: I don't know.

GLENN: I don't know, either.

STU: It's obviously a term that, you know, sensitivities at this point.

GLENN: It has negative connotations in this country.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: But what I'm asking is what are the clinical categories.

STU: I have no idea. I don't know.

GLENN: I mean

STU: Nor would I venture to guess because if you say the wrong one, you are likely to, you know, be assaulted by congress. Probably of course, congress voted to approve this particular questionnaire.

PAT: Over a year ago.

STU: Over a year ago with the term on it. So I don't know. I honestly don't know, especially honestly

GLENN: It's got to be I mean, there has to be some, you know, clinical I mean, there still has to be a valid category.

STU: I think their excuse

GLENN: It couldn't have gone through the census.

STU: That's not what they're saying. There's saying there's older African American black Negro gentleman, whichever one of the three that you'd pick refer to themselves still in that way. Like that's still a way, that's what their excuse it.

PAT: And they wanted to be inclusive.

STU: They wanted to be inclusive.

GLENN: Oh, stop it. Stop it. You know, I was on the set the other day for Fox and Friends and a guy walks past me and then he turns around and he comes back. He is intentionally, he looks at me and I'm like, hey. He looks at me and he walks past me and then he thinks and then he comes back and introduces. I don't think I've told you this story.

PAT: I don't think so.

GLENN: He introduces himself. I don't remember his name. He said, "I'm the head of the census." And I said, "Oh, nice to meet you." And I think he it was almost like, "In your face, Beck."

STU: You've got the job. Congratulations.

GLENN: I know. I said, oh, nice to meet you. And he said, I just want you to know you'll be receiving a census form in your mailbox and you need to fill it out.

PAT: You've got to be kidding me.

GLENN: No, I swear to God. You can ask Joe. He was there.

STU: Fantastic.

GLENN: And I said, I absolutely will, as required by the Constitution. You'll know exactly how many people are living in my house. I'll answer some of the questions. And he said, "Yeah. Well, you need to answer, you need to answer, you know, most of them."

STU: Most of them?

GLENN: Yeah, that's what he said.

PAT: Really?

GLENN: That's what he said.

PAT: Sounds almost like a threat.

GLENN: He almost started to say, he almost started to say, "You need to answer all of them," and he knew you don't say that because

STU: Why don't you say that?

GLENN: It's against the Constitution. I'm required constitutionally to answer

STU: But we've gone over this in courts a million times. We've talked about

GLENN: That's fine. That's fine.

STU: I know it's fine.

GLENN: Really?

STU: He could easily say that you have to answer all of them, doesn't he? Can't he?

PAT: Not really. There's a lot of lawyers who are lining up hoping to challenge this.

STU: Right. But they are challenging the law. He is stating what currently is.

PAT: You are challenging an unconstitutional law.

GLENN: When they said that Jim Crow was the right thing to do, we all should have just gone along. Nope.

STU: You could not go along with it all you want and you can pay the consequences and challenge it in court.

GLENN: I'll pay the fine, I'll pay the $5,000.

STU: I will not pay the $5,000, just so you know, census. Just so you know. That doesn't mean that he can't say that you have to answer all of them. It's the current position of the law, then of course he can say it. I mean, he can say whatever he wants. I mean, that is what they say.

GLENN: He can fine me. He can fine me the $5,000. I will gladly write the federal government and you can apply it right directly to ACORN. I'll pay the $5,000 and then I will write a bigger check to attorneys. Congratulations.

STU: You probably will.

GLENN: Yes, I

STU: If they decide to enforce it, you'll have to pay much more than that in attorney fees.

GLENN: No, $5,000 fine.

PAT: It's also interesting, though, that he said that you would specifically be receiving one because that's not supposed to happen, either.

GLENN: No, he's not supposed to.

PAT: It's supposed to be households, Random House holds.

GLENN: I'm looking for

PAT: Not people.

GLENN: to seeing if he was accurate on that Random House hold.

PAT: Yep.

STU: How many households is it supposed to go to?

PAT: I don't know but it says right on it, it's sent to your house, not to you.

GLENN: How do I know?

PAT: I mean, my house isn't filling out this information.

STU: And you are in the middle of moving, too.

PAT: And we did not fill out the census. And they hounded us over and over and over and over. And I told them every time.

GLENN: I will spend money and I will hire an attorney to answer my phones if they start hounding me. I will find the best attorney on the census: Just answer the phones.

STU: I know we somewhat covered this before and I hate to stick my neck out like this.

PAT: It's going to get chopped off.

STU: It is going to get chopped off here but what like I understand, okay, the Constitution didn't exactly say that they should ask you how much money you make or whatever.

PAT: Not only did it not exactly say that, it didn't say that. It said count.

STU: It didn't say a million things.

PAT: It said count people.

GLENN: All it is for is to count the number of people for representation. That is it.

PAT: It is specifically that.

STU: So do we have a problem with the government let's say having information about the citizens if they volunteer to give it? No. We have, obviously they do statistical studies all the time. You just don't want it in the census.

GLENN: Because the statistical studies will be flawed. They are not

STU: Right. Against people who don't fill out the census.

GLENN: I do not want them gathering information about people. The best way to gather information, if somebody wants to build a road, if somebody needs a new building, you have the town, you have the state collect that information if need. The best way to do it is let the private individuals do it. I do not want a giant depository of information that will be used by Washington politics to direct their special interest money. No. No.

STU: It just seems that people get more excited about them getting information through the census. And obviously like I mean

GLENN: Why is it the IRS is now involved with the census?

STU: I don't know. I bet you are going to tell me, though. See, this is my neck being chopped off here. I'm just asking.

GLENN: No, no, I don't have an answer. But I do know a couple that didn't fill out their census and then they were audited.

STU: But I mean

GLENN: And then excuse me. And then the auditors were asking the census questions: How many bathrooms does your house have? I can't figure for the life of me and neither could the attorney for this couple figure for the life of me why the IRS needed to know how many bathrooms.

STU: Or why they didn't go to the government site that has the information already.

GLENN: It was harassment.

STU: But they already had, I mean, they have all of that information. They have the square footage.

PAT: My Realtor had that information.

STU: Exactly.

PAT: Get it from them if you need it. You don't need it for ACORN. This is all about

GLENN: ACORN.

PAT: redistribution of wealth. It's about structure and redistribute of wealth.

STU: I agree with you on redistribute you could see that obviously a lot of people want to do that. But when you are talking about the census, it's government it's available to most of the government. They are trying to compile it for some statistical reason.

PAT: To redistribute wealth. I don't want them to.

STU: Isn't that worse? When you don't fill it out, then you are not being represented.

GLENN: I'm not playing their game anymore.

STU: Right. But you lose the game when you don't play it in this case.

GLENN: I know.

STU: Don't you? Why, when you are the only one not being represented because all conservatives don't fill it out.

GLENN: Because you lose the game when you decide that the best thing you can do is play the game with them. No. I'm going to stick to the Constitution. Look what happens to all the people who are like, you know what, if we just compromise a little bit here and a little bit here, a little bit here, a little drib, a little drab and they got you. No. I'm going to stand with the Constitution, period.


 

Glenn has focused on exposing the dark side of the gender movements waging our culture war, and now, there's a new "trend" emerging as an offshoot to the transgender movement. A growing online community, particularly of men, who consider themselves "involuntarily celibate" or "incels" believe they can live a better life as a trans woman. Why? This community purports the world is rigged against men, particularly against traditionally "unattractive men." What's the solution? Stop being a man...

Incel or "involutarily celibate" communities have existed online in the dark corners of Reddit and Discord for years. The groups are marked by a hatred towards women, blaming them for rigging the world in their favor and denying them of sex. Several members of this growing community have been responsible for large acts of violence, most notably Alek Minassian, who killed 10 and injured 16 after driving a van into a busy area of Toronto in 2021.

However, the transgender movement has presented a new option for incel members: if you can't beat 'em, join 'em... or, in the Transmaxxers' case, "become them."

The online Transmaxxer's Manifesto says, “Since females have the upper hand on the dating market, transitioning from male to female will usually improve your options when it comes to getting sex.” According to the manifesto, transitioning to female not only opens up a different pool of sexual partners, but moreover, you gain access to female-only spaces and are “able to extract resources from males.”

“Since females have the upper hand on the dating market, transitioning from male to female will usually improve your options when it comes to getting sex.”

Another member wrote, "If you do not currently feel like living as a female you might have to work on fixing that ... Identifying as male or being emotionally attached to a male body is bad for you if being male results in you living a bad life.”

This new movement is significant because it is in stark contrast to the mainstream narrative that "transgenderism" is an innate quality. Now, it can be an "option" people choose for social advantage. A moderator going by the alias “Vintologi” on the Transmaxxing Discord server, which boasts over 1,200 members, told The Daily Caller:

Transmaxxing is about transitioning for personal gain rather than focusing on things like "gender identity." ... What matters when it comes to medical transition is whether or not said transition would actually be beneficial, thus the extent to which gender identity is innate does not inform us much regarding when medical transition is appropriate.

One incel member on Reddit lamented that he can't Transmaxx to "have sex with white trans women" and to have "all the benefits of [being] female."

Transmaxxing sheds light on a concerning issue as an increasing number of people, particularly the youth, identify as "transgender." What used to be considered as a "finge case" is now being seen as a social advantage. Glenn recently sat down with de-transitioner Chloe Cole, and the amount of pressure she experienced to become a transgender man AS A TEENAGER was ASTOUNDING. She discussed the new community, friendships, and affirmation she gained when she started her transition journey, and she lost ALL of those social perks when she began de-transitioning. She exchanged affirmation for death-threats, friendships for stone-cold silence.

Transmaxxing is a very specific example of a larger movement that is deeply concerning. Not only is the thansgender ideology problematic on its own merits, but now, we are seeing a rise of a distinction of "social advantage" based on gender affiliation. This is deviating away from the original notion that transgenderism is an innate quality. Now, many consider it more "socially advantageous" to identify as transgender than with your biological gender.

At the same time President Biden's misplaced classified documents were sitting in his house, garage, and office at the Penn Biden Center, a whole lot of Chinese money was flowing around him. Is this just a coincidence, or did the Chinese get anything in return? Investigative journalist John Solomon joins to break down what was going on here ...

Here are 5 RIDICULOUS moments from the Davos summit

Glenn has been warning about the dangers of the World Economic Forum and The Great Reset, which is the WEF's goal to utilize the crises like the COVID pandemic to create a leftist Utopia. Now, these goals continue to take shape at the World Economic Forum summit in Davos. Here are five ridiculous moments from this year's summit that shed light on their ultimate vision Glenn has been warning about.

1. Ex-CNN host Brian Stelter hosts the WEF panel on "disinformation," calling for the criminalization of "hate speech" in the U.S.

The former host of Reliable Sources was fired from CNN in 2022 for raking in the network's worst ratings since 2019. CNN's CEO at the time, Chris Licht, accused Stelter of "drawing ire from conservatives" for misrepresenting the facts and propagating false narratives to demonize conservatives. Licht fired Stelter because he was a liability to CNN's attempt to "re-brand" itself as a "reliable" news source.

You would think the World Economic Forum could have found a more credible host for its "disinformation," than Brian Stelter, and it comes with little surprise Stelter's panel called for the continued censorship of conservatives.

Stelter asked his panel, "How does this discussion of disinformation relate to everything else happening today in Davos?"

Vice-President of the European Commission Vera Jourová answered "illegal hate speech" from right-wing extremists, and then called for the criminalization of hate speech in the U.S., asserting, "I think that we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law" within the EU.

As former Trump advisor Stephen Miller pointed out, Stelter's refusal to further challenge Jourová's call for censorship is indicative of his failed career as a journalist.

2. Al Gore warns of "rain bombs," "boiling oceans," and "xenophobia" as a result of climate change.

Gore's speech "speaks" for itself...

After asserting that we're creating an "open sewer" in the troposphere, Gore exclaimed:

That’s what’s boiling the oceans, creating these atmospheric rivers, and the rain bombs, and sucking the moisture out of the land, and creating the droughts, and melting the ice and raising the sea level, and causing these waves of climate refugees!

Speaking of refugees, Gore blamed the mass migrations of people on... you guessed it... climate change! Of course this leads to "xenophobia" and "fascism," so if we hate "xenophobia" and "fascism," we need to stop climate change IMMEDIATELY. Plus the rain bombs...

Does this sound reminiscent of the "Man-Bear-Pig?"

3. Siemens AG Chairman Jim Hagemann urges for 1 million people to NOT eat meat—predicting a "meatless future."

It wouldn't be a World Economic Forum summit if bugs didn't take center stage. Siemens AG Chairman Jim Hagemann said he was inspired by his 24-year-old daughter to stop eating meat to fight climate change and urged one million people to stop eating meat to balance out jet emissions—like the jets his fellow attendees used to travel to the conference?

Here's what he said:

If a billion people stop eating meat, I tell you, it has a big impact. Not only does it have a big impact on the current food system, but it will also inspire innovation of food systems."

Of course, finding "alternative sources of protein" means... you guessed it... BUGS. The EU is already cutting down on cattle farms and promoting the building of insect farms to initiate this "protein transition."

4. John Kerry calls Davos attendees a "select group" with an "almost extraterrestrial" plan to save the planet.

Kerry's opening speech at Davos shows the type of elitism the attendees believe about themselves. They are the "special ones" who can gather at a Swiss resort town to discuss how to "save the planet" and the "little people" who are too ignorant to have a say in the matter. His words speak for themselves:

When you start to think about it, it's pretty extraordinary that we — select group of human beings because of whatever touched us at some point in our lives — are able to sit in a room and come together and actually talk about saving the planet [...] I mean, it's so almost extraterrestrial to think about saving the planet [...] f you say that to most people, most people think you're just a crazy, tree-hugging, lefty liberal, you know, do-gooder, or whatever, and there's no relationship. But really, that's where we are.

Well, not everyone was amused...

Businessman and conservative Tim Acheson called Kerry’s words, "Liberal delusions of grandeur." Jordan Peterson also tweeted, "Who are you going to sacrifice to save the planet, @JohnKerry -- and do you think and how will you ensure that they have any say in the matter?"

5. Davos attendees traveled on more than 1,000 private jets to the conference.

Greenspace, an environmentalist research group, estimates the total emissions used by Davos attendees on their private jets while traveling to the conference is equivalent to "about 350,000 average cars."

Greenspace also found that 53 percent of all private jet trips were short-haul flights of less than 470 nautical miles that "could have easily been train trips." This comes amid the EU's push to ban short-distance flights and opt for train travel instead, which many continue to point out.

Closing thoughts

What once sounded like conspiracy theories are now taking shape amongst the global elites at Davos. As Glenn continues to shed light on the dangers of the World Economic Forum, here's how YOU can fight back against their goals that threaten our freedoms and democracy.

In honor of the World Economic Forum summit in Davos, we would like to resurrect this gem from Glenn's Instagram archive. If "the Great Reset" doesn't work out, Schwab should consider reaching out to the Bond franchise for a Plan-B career.
