GLENN: And all they're doing, again, is changing the language.

Let me give you something. This is in an unrelated topic, but this is from Newsweek. Newsweek, The Revolution Won't Be Demonized is the headline. Get this: The Revolution Won't Be Demonized. Now, they'll tell you that, "We're not in a revolution, we're not having a revolution, there is no revolution. Fundamental transformation, that was just a turn of a phrase. We're not there's no revolutionaries. What are you talking about." Newsweek magazine: The Revolution Won't Be Demonized.

I was reminded of this I'm reading the article here from Raina Kelley. "I was reminded of this as I read about Fox News host Glenn Beck's excoriation of progressive politics." Quote: Progressivism is the cancer of America and eating our Constitution, he stated in a key note speech at last weekend's conservative political action conference, and it was designed to eat the Constitution, to progress past the Constitution. The nation and both did a great job refuting his arguments but I was surprised not to see any real defense of progressive politics aside from Jon Stewart on the Daily Show.

Okay. Well, how could you refute my arguments if you weren't refuting what progressivism was? And the Daily Show, I believe the only thing that the Daily Show said was the public library is a progressive idea. And I guess if you want to, but I could show you the pictures of the New York public library when they first started, and it's got John Astor's name on it and several other very wealthy people that donated all of the books and the... see, it was the rich that... but I mean, why get bogged down in Jon Stewart arguments.

"Maybe others on the left thought his argument was too factile and knuckleheaded to refute." See, that's a I'm just too stupid to refute. "But someone has to stoop to conquer. Progressives need to put up a real show on defending their politics because if they don't " listen to this "they may one day confront a world where people say progressive and mean socialist revolutionaries who want to destroy America." I can only hope. "Words matter in part because it is possible to change their meaning over time." This is why I said to you last week, I know look, I have profound respect for Rush Limbaugh, but Rush Limbaugh says I'm going to call them liberals because it drives them crazy. I agree with him, it does. But I'm not here to drive them crazy. What my job is, Rush, Rush relish and he's very good at it. He's great at driving people crazy on the left, and he loves it. My job is not to do that. That's his job. My job is to set the record straight and to teach the history of what happened to this country. And what happened to this country, the reason why liberals, they hate it is because, not because of what Rush Limbaugh did to expose liberals which, it is. He's the guy who said, "Liberalism." And he's the one that defined them and showed the American people exactly how bad they were. But that was the second attempt.

First the progressives tried it under their own banner, the progressive banner. Then when it didn't work, the progressives hid under the liberal banner. They took and changed the meaning of the word liberal. It didn't mean that until progressives took it. And they did exactly what they do on everything else, political correctness. They changed the meaning of words. Now they hate it because they're trapped underneath it. But they will morph, and they're already doing it, morphing into progressive and getting people to go yeah, yeah, I'm like progressive because it's, like, so cool. Don't let them do it. Follow them. Follow them. Because all they do, they are like snakes. They shed their skin and then they just move up to something else. Don't stand there and point at the skin, point at the snake! So what is he doing? He has taken the word now of reconciliation and decided to change it, instead of reconciliation, to majority. Because who's against majority? It's the same thing they've done with the republic. We don't talk about a republic anymore. We talk about a democracy. We're not a democracy. In fact, Thomas Jefferson made it very clear. A democracy has never, ever survived.

You know what a democracy is? Two wolves and a sheep deciding what to have for lunch. That's what a democracy is. We're not a democracy. We're a republic. Period. Play within the system and hold people's feet to the fire. They've trained us to accept word changes. Stimulus? It's no longer stimulus. It's a jobs bill. It's the same thing. But for some reason a jobs bill is okay. Follow the snake. And point to the snake. Not the skin. Point to the snake. "Hey, see this jobs bill? It's a stimulus bill. That's what it is."

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."
