Glenn Beck: You are dumb, unsophisticated


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


by Glenn Beck

STU: Yeah. Well, they're not happy with it and, you know, they don't like the fact that the audience is growing. They don't like the fact that more people are being receptive and actually, they can't ‑‑ it's like what you were talking about with what's his face, you talked about Klein last night on TV. And the story with him today is that he said Air America failed because, you know, liberals want to read. Which is, I mean, just insane.

GLENN: That's the most ridiculous thing. Really?

STU: Right.

GLENN: I will put any liberal author against our ‑‑

PAT: Was that on The View yesterday with Joy Behar. I think it was Klein and some guy named Dan Savage.

VOICE: Liberals like to read more than they like to listen to people screaming at them.

PAT: That's why you can't sell any books, Glenn.

STU: That's why you've never sold a book.

VOICE: You know, the liberal stuff that works are funny programs like, you know, the Daily Show or ‑‑

BEHAR: This show.

VOICE: Colbert.

BEHAR: This show, thank you.

PAT: Yeah, this works.

VOICE: They don't want to listen to NPR because they don't want to be screamed at. They want to get the facts ‑‑

VOICE: Get the jokes when they watch Colbert.

VOICE: And then they can go to my swamp blog at Time and ‑‑

STU: Nice plug.

BEHAR: But I mean, the conservative radio people are angry no matter whether they are in power or now they are not necessarily in power. They have been screaming for years, Bush and Cheney and Rove who were running the place.

VOICE: But that's what gets conservatives to the polls is rage and fear: Oh, here come the queers and they are so scary and here comes Obama and they want to make sure your kids have healthcare. Isn't that scary? And that doesn't appeal to liberals.

STU: I wish Elizabeth would jump in here.

PAT: I do, too, because ‑‑

GLENN: Wait a minute. Hang on just a second. Hang on just a second. How many times have you heard "Here come the queers."

STU: I get a call from a friend every night.

GLENN: That is the most ridiculous thing that I've ever heard.

PAT: So stupid!

GLENN: Where are the queers?! That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard.

STU: But they can't take the fact that the point of this ‑‑

GLENN: But hang on. Hang on just a second. What got them out to the polls? I mean, let's just remember, it wasn't conservatives that said you need to get to the polls because Dick Cheney is Darth Vader.

STU: Or that the Earth is going to kill you!

GLENN: I mean, holy cow. They actually had to go to a cartoon character.

STU: It's just so ridiculous, but I don't think that ‑‑ I think the thing that's really getting them upset right now is that they believe that they are intellectually superior. They believe they are going to read these long books and you just want to be screamed at as a conservative. But when you have a gigantic audience for a geeky communist documentary on a Friday night, there's no way to explain their way out of that.

PAT: Four million people. And not even a Friday night we have to remember, Friday afternoon at 5:00.

STU: Not even prime time.

PAT: Jeez.

STU: Not to mention all the other times you've had all these people watching to listen to you talk about debt and T‑bills and other obscure stuff, theories from the 1920s.

GLENN: We're doing stuff, honestly I have to tell you I'm not sure if the ratings are going to hold just because, I mean, we're ‑‑ I'm interested in it. I'm interested in it. I think the American people are interested in it because I think people ‑‑ you know, we had a call yesterday, a guy who said, you know, Glenn, you said six months ago that we needed to educate ourselves. And he said, I got upset at you because I said, that's not what we need to do. We need to organize, we need to get out there, we need to... and I said at the time, no, we need to educate ourself. He said, I have ‑‑ this is yesterday. He said, I have to call you back and apologize. I was wrong. I see what you're doing. Once we educate people on what progressives really are, what their history really is, I mean, I ‑‑ you know, I've got to go. We're going to come back in a minute. I've got something I was reading, some history last night, and read the history of the first progressives in America from the 1800s. It was 1880 when this thing really started. Wait until you hear the description of the first progressives, the people who were like, "Hey, now, wait a minute." When you hear these people, who they were in 1880, you will understand exactly who they are today. There isn't a single change.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
