Glenn takes no prisoners at CPAC



Video: Glenn at CPAC

CALLER: Thanks, Glenn. You know what? Is that speech as CPAC, it was inspiring. I was cheering at home with my family. I mean, we were actually, I was giving you a standing ovation at times. It was the most amazing speech I've seen from CPAC since Ronald Reagan was there.

GLENN: Thank you, thank you. I what a compliment that is. You know, that was the other reason that I was so nervous about it is I'm a huge Reagan fan. No matter what was printed in USA Today Weekend, did you see this? That apparently I said to this reporter I can't imagine what context I said this in that Ronald Reagan wasn't even a Republican. Unless I said that in the context of, he wasn't a Republican like we know them, he wasn't a progressive Republican, I don't know what context I said that in. But, you know, for Ronald Reagan to give that speech twelve times and then for me to be asked to give it, it was, I don't know, I just felt a real sense of responsibility.

Here's some of the by the way, if you didn't see it, you can see it at GlennBeck.com. Here's some of the pieces. This is where I think William Bennett took umbrage to which was the morning in America. He said this was, this was disheartening, this was disheartening to describe Morning in America like this. Here it is.

GLENN: It is still Morning in America. It just happens to be kind of a head pounding, hung over vomiting for four hours kind of morning in America. And it's shaping up to be kind of a nasty day, but it's still Morning in America!

Now, the reason why I said that, the very next line was, so what made us down on our knees vomiting in the toilet bowl? What was it? What was the poison that made us feel this way? And it was tax and spend. Progressivism. Now, how is that, how is that a downer? That's called the truth. And if you would have watched the entire speech, I think you would have the ending, somebody told me, wow, what an inspiring speech, you know, I didn't get to see the last 15, 20 minutes. You didn't get to see the last 15, 20 minutes? That's the best part. That's where it all ties together.

Then I talked a little bit about Dick Cheney and what he said. Cut 2, please.

It's going to be a very good year, but it's not enough just to not suck as much as the other side. (Applause). I'm a I'm a recovering alcoholic. I'm a recovering alcoholic, and I screwed up my life six ways to Sunday, and I believe in redemption, but the first step to getting redemption is you've got to admit you've got a problem. (Amens). I have not heard people in the Republican Party yet admit they have a problem. And when they do say they have a problem, I don't know if I believe them. I haven't seen the "Come to Jesus" moment of the Republican Party yet. I voted Republican almost every time I've gone. I don't know what they even stand for anymore. And they've got to recognize that they have a problem. Hello! My name is the Republican Party and I got a problem! I'm addicted to spending and big government! (Applause)

GLENN: It I mean, it is strange the way the press is treating this speech. They either are ignoring it which, you know, that's fine, but I don't think that's for no reason because when it first happened, I saw all of the press right away and none of even the New York Times didn't have anything bad to say. And then it started to get buried. And I think that's because I mean, you'll notice MSNBC and CNN, A, didn't cover it, and I wouldn't probably, either, but they're not showing clips of it at all as something that should be said.

PAT: It's not like they shy away from clips if they could bash you with them.

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: You know, I mean, we've seen that a thousand, a million times.

GLENN: NBC, I mean, all week.

PAT: But this thing was so well received. And that's why when we were on the way back, I said I'm going to be interested to see how MSNBC and CNN cover this. Well, they didn't. Because there was nothing to really take apart. And the reception at the convention was just so amazing. We were told before your speech that it was Mark Rubio everybody was talking about and you got five standing ovations.

GLENN: I heard eight.

PAT: You got twelve.

GLENN: Really?

PAT: You got twelve full standing ovations and then another six to eight partial, you know, where part of the audience stands.

GLENN: Yeah, it was a little like did anybody else feel like this? It was like the state of the union address.

GLENN: It was.

PAT: It was.

GLENN: People just kept standing up. And there were times when like half the audience was standing up. And I'm like, what are you, that's the progressive side. That's the progressive said.

STU: I said that's one of the annoying things, too, when half the audience stands up and you realize the clapping's not going to stop if you don't also stand up when you're in the crowd. You're like, that was a good line, I'm just going to clap sitting down. And then you realize everybody else is standing up and you go, all right, here we go.

PAT: I guess it was that good, I guess we'll stand up.

GLENN: Let me go for Cut 3 and then we'll take a break.

Not everybody gets a trophy. What is the point of competing for a trophy if everyone gets a trophy? (Applause). Please stop teaching my children that everyone will get a trophy just for participating. What is this, the Nobel Prize?

That was an ad lib.

STU: Very solid line.

PAT: That was some red meat right there.

STU: Which is difficult really.

GLENN: Not everybody gets a trophy. We should start correcting our children's work in red ink again. I mean, I'm tired, what are we? Spin the color wheel now? You corrected my child's work in red ink. "Yes, I did." Well, that's a little traumatic. You know what's even more traumatic? If little Johnny keeps getting these answers wrong when he goes out into the big bad world and he's eaten. That's worse. There is some sort of element of competition to life. "Oh, that's not natural." Really? Go watch the lions eat the weakest.

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.
