Glenn Beck: Meghan McCain is like, so totally progressive

GLENN: Meghan McCain, like, she is like so cool. First start with the progressive, the progressive line from Meghan McCain. Can you do that?

PAT: The progressive, yes.

GLENN: Here she is. She's a progressive. I don't know if you know that.

MEGHAN McCAIN: I consider myself a progressive Republican.

PAT: Do you want the whole thing is that enough?

GLENN: No, is there any more that needs to be said before that?

PAT: No, no.

STU: I vote for enough.

MEGHAN McCAIN: I consider myself a progressive Republican. I consider myself a progressive Republican. I consider myself a progressive Republican. I consider myself a progressive Republican.

GLENN: Okay, stop. There's the problem. That's the disease in the water: I consider myself a progressive Republican because I like progress. I like progress so much, I like to progress, I like to come like, for instance, Larry, in the studio I like, if I wouldn't have progressed, I'd still be sitting in the car because I like progress. So I got out of the car and then I closed the door and I took a couple of small steps and before I knew, I was in your studio. I like progress.

PAT: Isn't it interesting that none of these pseudo intellectuals on the left are calling her stupid? None of them are saying, she sounds like an idiot, she can't put together an intellectual thought, she hasn't had a deep thought in her life but they will say that all the time about Sarah Palin, all the time.

GLENN: But she's on Larry King!

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: For the full hour. All right. So now here she is on The View, whole thing.

MEGHAN McCAIN: We're saying that this is a new movement in the Republican Party and the first I knew, I did not want to go

GLENN: Stop. It's not a new movement in the Republican Party. Your daddy knows this. Maybe Daddy should sit you down and learn you a lesson or two on progressives. Daddy knows that his favorite president was the one who started the progressive party. Called the Bull Moose Party because Daddy couldn't take the seat from the Republican. So he had to start a third party. The progressive party. So it's not a new movement. It's the reason why your daddy's been a progressive for a long time. Your daddy is one of the reasons why our government is so out of control. How's that, Megan?

PAT: But I think here she's confusing, if I'm not mistaken, I think she's confusing the tea party with a movement within the Republican Party because I think she's referencing the tea party now.

STU: So she's saying the tea party is a new movement?

PAT: It's a new movement within the Republican Party and it's not.

GLENN: No, that was only the, that was only the Jefferson part of the movement. The tea party thing is really the Jefferson, Jefferson. A Republican. Not in the way we know them now. Before daddy's favorite president. Before there were progressives. A true Republican, which is for state control. Not a big federal government. I mean, how far away from the true Republican can you possibly be? If I said a Republican is somebody who is for the smallest possible government and does not like state wants state control, not federal control, name the Republicans that think that way.

STU: You mean currently?

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: That want the small I mean like obviously Jim DeMint type.

GLENN: Jim DeMint,

PAT: Michele Bachmann.

GLENN: Michele Bachmann, Ron Paul.

PAT: Jason Chaffetz.

GLENN: Jason Chaffetz.

PAT: Good, uh huh.

GLENN: There's four of us, we've come up with four.

STU: There's definitely congressmen that would fit into this. I mean, there's

GLENN: But it's to the like

PAT: John Culbertson, some of those guys.

GLENN: But it's not like it's an overwhelming number. Maybe we could come up with 50 of them. It's not an overwhelming number. I don't think so. I'm being generous. Because I'm in California and that's what people are in California. They're generous. You know, they're like progressive and yet for small government and fiscally conservative government. Small progressive, fiscally conservative, spend a lot kind of conservative Republican. That's what I am. All right. So she goes on.

MEGHAN McCAIN: I have very different, much ideological differences with Dad, but Congressman Tancredo went off

GLENN: Hang on, I have very much, like, ideological differences with them but I'm like super smart and nobody's going to point out that I'm stupid because I say things like I'm very much like ideological differences with them.

STU: But isn't this like, too, she's talking about the tea party movement which is generally described as a libertarian leaning movement.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: It's the movement that has de emphasized the social part of the platform of the Republican Party.

GLENN: Exactly right.

STU: So it makes no sense what she's talking about when she's talking about ideological difference and she described the only similarities that she has with them.

GLENN: Exactly right. The tea party movement is a movement that says I mean, because it could be independent, it can be it could be Republican or Democrat. It could be any of those things. What they're saying is be fiscally conservative. Stand for the Constitution, period. That's the main thrust. If you start getting into, "And we want to talk to you about gay marriage, and we want to talk to you about this," the tea party movement splits apart. Everybody is united on fiscally responsible. Stop spending us into oblivion, reduce the size of government and read the Constitution. That's what it's about.

STU: Yeah, I get that you could make the case, too, that there's not even consensus among national defense among tea party members. A lot of the Ron Paul people are a part of this.

GLENN: Exactly right.

STU: And they can't stand any of the war stuff. I mean, I think really it unites specifically on the Constitution and fiscal conservatism.

GLENN: So she's saying and this is great. I'm like, such a progressive Republican and I have nothing these tea party people, I have, like, much I disagree with. Exactly what? If you are a Republican, you're supposed to be for small government. If you're an American, you are supposed to be for the Constitution. If you're a Republican, you're supposed to be for fiscal responsibility. She says, "I'm a Republican, but I'm a progressive Republican." What does that even mean?

STU: I'm like a Jersey Shore Republican. I watch it and I want to make sure the situation doesn't control Snookie too much but that's really about it.

MEGHAN McCAIN: On TV and he was the first opening speaker and he said that people who could not even spell the word vote or say it in English couldn't commit a Socialist ideologue in the White House whose name is Barack Hussein Obama and then he went on to say that people at the convention should have to pass literacy tests in order to be able to vote in this country, which is the same thing that happened in the Fifties to prevent African Americans from voting. It's innate racism and I think young people are turned off by this movement.

PAT: Because of innate racism.

MEGHAN McCAIN: Revolutions start with young people, not with 65 year old people talking about literacy tests and people who can't say the word "Vote" in English.

GLENN: You hear this?

PAT: Revolutions start with young people.

GLENN: Yeah, it's weird how, may I could you do me a favor? Could you just, I would just like to play this and then if you would play the audio of Barack Hussein Obama and his, like, organization to, like, where they're saying, "Oh, I, like, have to talk to my parents because they're so stupid, I have to trick them into talking about politics." Isn't it interesting, mmm, mmm, mmm, Barack Hussein Obama. Isn't it interesting how they have targeted the colleges, how they have targeted our youth, how they have targeted the schools and yet here she is a progressive Republican that understands that revolutions start with the young. And listen to the disrespect. And not like somebody who, like, is 65 years old. They've already how far of a reach is it to say they've already lived their life. They were 25 once. They have their healthcare, okay? It's like our turn. I mean, what are they contributing to society? I mean, somebody's going to have to lose their healthcare. Are you going to have it like us, the 25 year olds? We're not the ones who screwed this up. We're the ones trying to fix it.

Tell me, tell me that that is a stretch. The arrogance of the 25, the disrespect for the 65. Like, we're revolutionaries. Tell me it's a stretch, gang. It's not.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

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."
