Glenn Beck: Best campaign ad ever?




Dale Peterson for Agriculture  Commissioner

GLENN: All right. Let me go to Dale Peterson. Dale Peterson is running for the Agriculture Commissioner in Alabama, and I only wanted to get him on because I don't know anything about agriculture, I don't know anything about you, Dale. I just think you have the best TV spot I have ever seen.

PETERSON: Well, you know, big guy, first of all, thanks for having me on here.

GLENN: Sure.

PETERSON: There was a little guy that did that ad. It's — his website's filmladd.com, Ladd Ehlinger, and he did a movie or two and the last one he did was, you know, I guess what you'd say, used you as the character on there. And it was good. And he based it based on you. So he's not a political type guy at all. And when we did this, we never knew that it would cause so much ruckus around the country.

GLENN: Well, I want to play it again. Dale, I want to play this ad. We played it about a half hour, but let me play the ad. Here it is.

PETERSON: Go ahead.

[Video] I'm Dale Peterson and I'm after the Republican nomination for Alabama agriculture commissioner. I've been a farmer, a businessman, a cop, a marine during Vietnam. So listen up. Alabama AG commissioner is one of the most powerful positions in Alabama. Responsible for $5 billion. Bet you didn't know that. You know why? Thugs and criminals. If they can keep you in the dark, they can do whatever they want with all that money. And they don't give a rip about Alabama. Here we are losing three family farms a day. Illegals bust in by the thousands and Alabama's unemployment's at an all time high. And what are my opponents doing about it? Stealing yard signs in the dark of night from my supporters. Norman Grace brags on his Facebook page about receiving contributions from industries he would regulate. Bragging about receiving illegal money on Facebook. Who on Earth would support such a dummy? And why? We're Republicans. We should be better than that. I'm Dale Peterson. I'll name names and take no prisoners. Give me the Republican nomination for ag commission and let's show Alabama we mean business.

GLENN: Dale, what kind of gun are you holding while you're doing that ad?

PETERSON: It's a 30.30 Winchester Model 94.

PAT: What kind of feedback have you gotten from Alabamans?

PETERSON: Basically positive. The only negative feedback I've gotten has been from outside of Alabama, and only the negatives comes from the ultra liberals. But let me back up. I did get a comment from a leftwing liberal out of California and he said that he may disagree with me in some matters but he agrees with me in this ad. And he sent me a donation. Unbelievable.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: From California.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: He's like, they are like, don't, don't let him do — I bought it for a long time. God help us all.

PETERSON: But, you know, I appreciate any donation I get because we're funding this out of our savings and I won't take private interest money or special interest money and things like — and I've been offered it. But, you know, that's what we're trying to fight, big guy. You know, we're trying to get these slugs and thugs and criminals out of government, and we have them down here like you wouldn't believe. I think we rank number two in the nation in political corruptness and every day —

GLENN: Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute.

PETERSON: What?

GLENN: Political corruption, you are number 2 in the country?

PETERSON: Yeah. Didn't you know that?

GLENN: No, I didn't. And I don't think I've ever had anybody call me big guy more than you ever in my entire life. Maybe combined.

PETERSON: (Laughing).

GLENN: I had no idea that — I mean, I would think New Jersey, New York, California.

PAT: Louisiana.

GLENN: Louisiana.

PAT: Chicago.

PETERSON: Louisiana's ahead of us. If it wasn't for them, we'd be right there at the top.

PAT: So you are number 2 after Louisiana? I would never have guessed it.

PETERSON: It's kind of arguably I heard someone the other day say we were number 4 but

PAT: I didn't know there was a corruption survey.

PETERSON: We fluctuate depending on who goes to the pokey, you know?

GLENN: So what is it you are trying to clean up? What kind of farm crime is there?

PETERSON: Well, I guess the same thing you are. We're trying to get the people who are killing our country and in my case our state out of the position of power, and if we can move them, we're — our congress now, our legislature and Senate is all Democrat, and it has been that way for 168 years. We have a chance this time to actually take the — take control of it. And I think we're going to do good.

GLENN: You know, between the EPA and Cass Sunstein, I mean, how are you — I mean, these guys are big time anti farm. Look what they are doing in California. I mean, it's incredible what these guys are doing.

PETERSON: Oh, it's worse than that. Look at Senate Bill 510, what they are doing there and what they are going to —

GLENN: What is it? I'm afraid to ask.

PETERSON: Well, you know, it's disguising it under the food security and food safety type of act and — where they have centralized control, the government.

GLENN: Right.

PETERSON: Centralized control over our food supply and that sort of thing. There won't be any need for a state agriculture commissioner. It will be —

GLENN: Federal.

PETERSON: Federal director for each state, something like that.

GLENN: I just saw —

PETERSON: Go ahead.

GLENN: I just saw, I was in a meeting and the TVs were on and I pointed up to one of the guys who was in the meeting to follow this story. There was a story, I just saw the banner, red meat dangerous, some meat okay. I'm like, oh, now we're going after meat now. Interesting.

PETERSON: Well, they have always gone, gone after meat because what will happen is — well, I guess you could look at it, they started — they're disguising it in vegetarians and that sort of thing and don't eat red meat and that. Now they are going after red meat not being safe. Red meat is safe. We've been eating it, I'm pushing 65 and I think I've eaten it for 65 years, you know, and I'm still doing okay, taking my vitamins every day.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

PETERSON: So I don't see, I don't see anything wrong with it. But it is a systematic slicing and dicing of our constitutional rights. And if they can — there's one fella told me something, Glenn, one time. He says, those who control the food control you. And you think about that and the depths of it. And that's actually true. That's actually true. We've been the breadbasket of the world.

GLENN: Not anymore.

PETERSON: Forever. But now it is, it is just evaporating faster than you and I can talk about.

GLENN: Yeah. Well, best of luck to you, Dale, and just keep it —

PETERSON: I really appreciate that. I really appreciate the time here. I appreciate you for doing what you're doing for our country.

GLENN: Thank you, sir. I appreciate it. God bless you. You stay safe.

PETERSON: God bless you, too, big guy. Take care.

GLENN: Dale Peterson. Big guy.

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."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.
