Glenn Beck: Progressives tolerant of all...except

GLENN: From the San Francisco gate Monday, July 6th, 2009, get ready for even foggier summers, says the headline. Bay Area just had its foggiest May in 50 years and thanks to global warming, it's about to get even foggier. Here's the latest. Headline: Fog over San Francisco thins by a third due to climate change.

PAT: Now wait.

GLENN: The side of the Golden Gate bridge towering over the fog will become increasingly rare as climate change warms San Francisco Bay, scientists have found.

PAT: I was so moved by the last report that it was going to be more fog because of global warming.

GLENN: There's less fog.

PAT: Less fog now because of global warming?

GLENN: Because of global warming. In the summer they said that global warming is going to cause more fog and that's because of global warming. Now there's less fog.

PAT: Because of?

GLENN: And that's because of global warming.

STU: It seems like they're presenting both things as negatives, too. Only the current amount of fog is the good amount of fog.

GLENN: Yes, that's it.

STU: More or less would be terrible.

GLENN: Would be awful.

STU: But the current amount is perfect.

GLENN: Can I tell you something? I was in San Diego, what, about a week ago? No, fogs and cloud, no, not necessarily. I've been to San Francisco. Sure, it's cool to have to fog roll in but I think less fog would be good. I'm not willing to mandate the amount of fog, though. I'm just, whatever happens happens. I'm okay with it. It's called nature. The two faced illogic of the progressive movement is why it collapsed in 1920.

PAT: Man, you have to admire their pluckiness, though, you do. They just keep going. No matter what, they just keep going.

GLENN: I know they do, but what they did in 1920 was they went underground.

PAT: Sure, changed their name.

GLENN: The biggest spread in election history was Harding, was it not?

PAT: It was.

GLENN: I have the

PAT: 60 to 34% the popular vote.

GLENN: 60 to 34.

PAT: Biggest landslide in history, yeah.

GLENN: Why? Woodrow Wilson, everybody went, oh, I think this might be evil. The progressive movement was dead... except it went underground as just a Republican... and a Democrat. Progressive Democrat? No, no, no. Liberal Democrat. Liberal. And progressive Republican? No, no, no, just a Republican. I'm more of an open minded, middle ground Republican. Uh huh. That's how they changed it. But they just, they realized progress means, okay, so we're out in the open. They thought at the time they could get away with it and they couldn't. Now they come back out because they so destroyed the liberal moniker that now they have to destroy progressive a second time, and they will go back underground if we survive them this time. Because it is the progressive policies that have destroyed this nation. High taxes, lots of spending. You get it from both sides. You'll get the Democratic version is tax and spend. The Republican version of progressivism is spend. Why are we having this crisis? Because of our spending. There hasn't been any, there hasn't been any problem that you can't correct with high taxes, low taxes. High taxes, low taxes. It's the spending that has gotten us. Even Ronald Reagan couldn't cut the spending. Democrats went right down the road. And then under George W. Bush, spending with the Republicans, through the roof. It's the progressive death knell. They just keep nailing into the coffin. That's what's going to get us in the end is our deficit. It's what's getting all countries in the West, the deficit because we were just told no, it's fine. You know who we were told by? The Federal Reserve. It's weird. The progressives put the Federal Reserve in. Isn't that weird? Now you have the progressive movement so tolerant, so tolerant, they just want to tolerate everybody. They're just so tolerant and open and they don't know why people want to shut people down. All they want to do is talk: Don't call me un American. You remember the drill? Well, let me play this. This is, is it Rosie O'Donnell?

PAT: Uh huh, and Janeane Garofalo.

GLENN: I mean, this is matter and antimatter. I'm surprised they can coexist in the same room but here they are.

VOICE: It's a mindset that unfortunately, I don't know if it's nature or nurture

PAT: Talking about conservatives.

VOICE: I don't know if you are born that way or you are made that way or when it happens, when that switch is flipped on.

PAT: It's a disease.

VOICE: Maybe in adolescence, when something happens to you.

VOICE: Yeah.

VOICE: I don't know what makes one a Rush Limbaugh fan.

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop. Got it? It's a disease. Isn't it Savage that says

PAT: Or a birth defect, one of the two.

GLENN: Yeah. Isn't it Savage that says he thinks it's liberalism is a mental disorder? No, it's not. It's not a mental disorder. It's Marxism. You have to learn this stuff. You have to learn it. You have to be taught. When it comes to now conservatism, remember this goes back to Walter Lippmann. Walter Lippmann, a guy who is revered, revered. Ask anybody who's ever gone to journalism school: What do you think of Walter Lippmann? Oh, he was, he was really? Was he? Have you read his books? Because, man, he had a lot to say about genetics and how we can just weed the stupid people out. How he can just genetically alter them, or there's got to be some way that we can just rid ourselves of the imbecilic voter. Uh huh.

So conservative, I don't know, maybe it's a birth defect. Maybe it's a disease. Something's wrong with you. I don't know if you're born that way. Well, if I'm born that way, then I can't help it. Shouldn't you celebrate my diversity if I was born that way?

PAT: Gosh, that would be inclusive of you.

GLENN: It sure would be.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
