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.

Elon Musk calls Biden a 'damp sock puppet,' says the president treats Americans 'like fools'

Elon Musk, co-founder and CEO of Tesla, took to Twitter on Thursday to remind President Joe Biden that he left a certain key player out of a discussion about the future of building electric vehicles in the United States.

After meeting with General Motors Chair and CEO Mary Barra and Ford Motor Co. CEO Jim Farley, among others — but not including Musk — at the White House, Biden tweeted, "I meant it when I said the future was going to be made right here in America. Companies like GM and Ford are building more electric vehicles here at home than ever before."

Musk first responded by tweeting, "Starts with a T, Ends with an A, ESL in the middle."

Later in the thread, Musk seemed to agree with Twitter user Kim Paquette by tweeting: "Biden is treating the American public like fools."

Finally, Musk tweeted his pièce de résistance (at least for the day): "Biden is a damp [sock] puppet in human form."

This isn't the first time Musk has taken issue with the current administration. In December, he railed against Biden's "Build Back Better Act", saying he's deeply concerned about how the multitrillion-dollar bill would increase the national debt. In October, Musk slammed the administration's proposed tax on unrealized capital gains, warning Americans that "eventually, they run out of other people's money and then they come for you."

And who could forget Musk's spectacular Twitter spat with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass)? In case you missed it, Warren called Musk a freeloader after Time magazine named him "Person of the Year." Musk shot back with, "If you opened your eyes for 2 seconds, you would realize I will pay more taxes than any American in history this year. Don’t spend it all at once … oh wait you did already."

On his radio program Thursday, BlazeTV's Glenn Beck spoke out in Musk's defense. He praised Musk's "American spirit," noting the South African-born American entrepreneur's humble beginnings.

"Do you know that when Elon Musk and his brother launched their first company, Zip2, Elon was living in his office and he was showering at the YMCA? Did you know that? But he was in America. He's got more American spirit in him than most people I see every day. He's gone from showering at the YMCA to now mapping out a trip to Mars and he'll do it. Why? Because he has that American spirit in him."

When Biden was given the keys to the Oval Office in January 2021, gas was $2.50 a gallon and the inflation rate was 1.4%. Today gas is at $3.32 a gallon and the inflation rate is at 7% ... and STILL RISING. These are just 12 months of numbers, but we’re clearly in a worrying decline. While the economy has opened up more post-COVID, it’s not just getting worse — we’re going IN REVERSE.

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard (and the very top of his studio ceiling) to explain what’s happening to inflation and why it’s so hard for your family to afford basic goods and groceries. It’s not “corporate greed,” as Democrats have been telling you. The Biden administration wants to continue to spend trillions of dollars to “reinvent capitalism,” but that’s in addition to the trillions that are being pumped out IN THE SHADOWS.

Glenn exposes what the Fed has been doing behind closed doors and shows us the tidal wave that’s about to hit. He’s looked at the numbers, and they're frightening. Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” gives advice to Americans who want to protect their checking and savings accounts before it’s too late.

The stock markets have taken a nosedive in the biggest downtrend since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. But that's nothing compared to what's coming thanks to our government's embrace of modern monetary theory, warned BlazeTV's Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It really is important that you understand what's happening to us," Glenn stated. "Modern monetary theory is truly the [fuel] ... for the great reset. It is the idea that we can print as much money and spend as much money as we want," he explained.

"Then the next step is to release the Federal Reserve digital currency and make payments by other currencies [including cryptocurrencies] illegal," he continued. "And you're seeing it happen now in real time. Why would they do this? Because you cannot print this kind of money without having absolute control over how it is spent."

Glenn broke down the steps powerful political organizations — like the Federal Reserve — will take to end currency competition and enact a Federal digital dollar, which will allow for the government to have complete control over how we spend our money.

"This is what's coming. This is coming quickly, and events will make it move faster. For instance, why is Joe Biden basically giving Ukraine to Russia? He's giving it to them. He he knows Russia's not afraid of him. Putin knows that [Biden] is not going to do anything ... neither is NATO. They're not going to do anything," Glenn said.

"It's because war resets everything. War is the best great resetter. Changes boundaries. It changes borders. It changes laws. It changes societies. It changes currencies. It changes everything. And in the end you just want the war to stop. And so you you accept whatever it is the terms are that you're going to have to live under now. We're in very, very dangerous times. The only way to survive this is to know why they are dangerous times."

Chances are, you've noticed that many large companies have decided to become woke activists, despite the fact that alienating half your customer base is a terrible business strategy.

This woke shift isn't being driven by the usual market forces. It's the Great Reset's ESG score system at work, Glenn Beck said on "GlennTV." Under the “environmental, social, and governance” score system, companies will no longer make decisions based on what you, the consumer, want. Now, it's all about what those in power deem society should want. And it's not just businesses that are affected, he explained.
