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.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
