Glenn Beck: The Rosie O'Donnell BP solution



Story: Rosie O'Donnell Wants BP's Assets Seized: 'We Broke the Freakin' Womb of Mother Earth'

GLENN: Let's start with the audio of Rosie O'Donnell who is the first to make my prediction come true that they would just start to announce that it doesn't matter, communist, Marxist. Remember when I said that? I think it was Stu that said, Glenn, that's crazy, that's crazy. It's beginning to happen. You're at the very beginning of it and Rosie O'Donnell is the first sign. Here's what Rosie O'Donnell said about the BP oil spill yesterday.

O'DONNELL: Are you going to go? I don't know. But children are vulnerable to toxic chemicals in crude oil that can disrupt normal growth or development. t.

VOICE: And this is part of what BP should pay for. You know, they are saying they are going to pay for everything. That is a big line of crap.

O'DONNELL: I say seize their assets.

VOICE: Yeah.

O'DONNELL: Right now.

VOICE: Yep.

O'DONNELL: Seize their assets today, take over the country, I don't care. Issue an executive order. Say BP, guess what.

VOICE: Yeah.

O'DONNELL: Call it socialism, call it communism, call it anything you want. Let's watch Rush Limbaugh explode on TV when he talks.

PAT: He's not on TV.

GLENN: Yeah, but that's staying informed, Rosie O'Donnell. Let's seize the company. Call it Marxism or communism, whatever you want. They don't care. They are not afraid of being labeled a communist because they don't have a problem with communism.

Let me play again Bill Maher. You tell me. We now have Rosie O'Donnell saying seize their assets. Communism, call it communism if you want. Seize their assets. Take over the company. Here's Bill Maher. Tell me if this sounds like a republic.

MAHER: But yeah, they are talking about 60 votes, forget this stuff, 60. You can't get Americans to agree on anything 60%. 60% of people don't believe in evolution in this country. He just needs to drag them to it. Like I just said, they're stupid. Just drag them to this. Get healthcare done, you know, with or without them. Make the gang of six an offer they can't refuse. This Max Baucus guy, he needs to wake up tomorrow with an intern's head in his bed.

GLENN: That sure sounds more like Chavez than James Madison. You have Robert Reich coming out and saying this about the BP oil spill.

REICH: We need to have government take BP's operations over at least until this is solved.

GLENN: Now, do you remember, this is the compromise, this is the compromise: Just do it until it's solved. But do you remember when Maxine Waters said the same thing and it was funny because she realized what she was saying: Oh, we're going to socialize... we're going to take overture —

WATERS: And guess what this liberal will be all about. This liberal will be all about socializing...

GLENN: Uh oh.

WATERS: Will be about... basically —

GLENN: Oh, boy.

WATERS: Taking over, and the government running all of your companies.

GLENN: Okay. She said that to the oil companies. And it was funny when she said it because it was so revealing on her. But you thought she was alone. The emergency is here now to do it. The emergency is here. Again play Rosie O'Donnell and then I want to play a new cut for you that also happened last night. Here's Rosie O'Donnell.

O'DONNELL: Are you going to go? I don't know. But children are vulnerable to toxic chemicals in crude oil that can disrupt normal growth or development.

VOICE: And this is part of what BP should pay for. You know, they are saying they are going to pay for everything. That is a big line of crap.

O'DONNELL: I say seize their assets.

VOICE: Yeah.

O'DONNELL: Right now.

VOICE: Yep.

O'DONNELL: Seize their assets today, take over the country, I don't care. Issue an executive order. Say BP, guess what.

VOICE: Yeah.

O'DONNELL: Call it socialism, call it communism, call it anything you want. Let's watch Rush Limbaugh explode on TV when he talks.

GLENN: That's pretty incredible. Issue an executive order. I thought we were restoring democracy. I thought we wanted the voice of the people heard. See, this is where the Marxist lie breaks down. They can get you, and as you will see on Friday's show, James Madison on Founding Friday this Friday. James Madison is the architect of the Constitution. Everything in the Constitution is to slow people down. Slow down. They were afraid of emergencies and those people in government that would use emergencies to be able to rush people in and so they wanted everything in there to slow it down because something would happen and people would make a rash decision because that's what people do. They want to do good. But if somebody would learn how to game the system, they could push them into emergencies and you're out of freedom... like that.

So everything was a speed bump. Everything we have done since 1913 was to take the speed bumps away, so there's nothing slowing these people down. Nothing. Now it's just — now, you can't even get 60%. What do you think you could get on just seize, have the president seize the assets of a company and seize a company and just take it over? I would love to see a poll on that. Maybe I'm afraid to see a poll on that. 60%, 70%, 80% against? You'd have to be at least 60% against. I would hope that it's higher, but it wouldn't be in the majority. Just take a company? Through executive order? And you make fun of me for saying that we're headed towards a fascistic state? What, are you crazy? I have to tell you, the lie of these people will be their undoing. You have truth on your side. Now, what happens — let's just play this out because now you're starting to see the things that I warned about actually being said and considered. Play this out in your head. Let's just say that we have a president that would just take a company, seize it. What happens when people rise up and say, that is not who we are. What happens? Do these people say, now let's listen to the other side, let's listen to the people. Or do they say, "Silence them!" Let me go back to Bill Maher. I think he was very clear on it. Wasn't he?

MAHER: You know, they are talking about 60 votes they need, forget this stuff, 60. They can't get Americans to agree on anything 60%. 60% of people don't believe in evolution in this country. He just needs to drag them to it. Like I just said, they're stupid. Just drag them to this. Get healthcare done, you know, with or without them. Make the gang of six an offer they can't refuse. This Max Baucus guy, he needs to wake up tomorrow with an intern's head in his bed.

GLENN: That's incredible. The left, as I told you yesterday, starting to fall apart. Because the people like Rosie O'Donnell, the people like Sean Penn, the people that you've always known are for a Venezuelan revolution, the Van Jones, the revolutionaries. Not the Bill Clintons. The revolutionaries, the William Ayers. They are tired of waiting. As the AFL CIO or was it SEIU said, "We paid for it. We want results." They want their money and they want their utopia. Move aside, grandma. It's my turn.

So they have to soothe the uber left, and here is the soothing voice of Barney Frank.

FRANK: Reach out to your fellow young people and make it clear to them that while they may not be satisfied with everything we've done — we're not satisfied with everything we've done. The way to cure that is to give us more authority and more ability.

PAT: (Laughing). You are right about the soothing part, too. It's great.

GLENN: To give more authority. We're talking about Constitution! Give them more authority! That's what this is all about. Who has the authority? Who's going to force people to do it? You give us more authority; I'll do it. I'll get it done. That's pretty intense stuff, and anybody who doesn't see it is a fool or an accomplice.

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."
