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.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
