Glenn Beck: Rawls vs. Greene

GLENN: So, we're looking at -- who is it? Al Greene that's running in --

STU: Alvin Greene.

PAT: Alvin Greene.

GLENN: Oh. Not the singer?

STU: No.

PAT: No. See, that's the mistake that apparently a lot of people are making.

GLENN: All right. So, tell this story here.

PAT: One of the local TV stations went out and interviewed some people because everybody's confused about this Alvin Greene guy. He's a person who -- am I keeping you awake?

GLENN: Yeah, you are. Can you tell the story a little more exciting than this?

PAT: Should I be quiet and let you get a little nappy?

GLENN: No. So far, the way you're telling it --

PAT: I got five words out of my mouth, you know.

GLENN: Go ahead. I'm just trying to do to you what you bring to the table for me every single day.

PAT: You have no idea what I bring to the table.

GLENN: No. Neither do the listeners, but, anyway, go ahead.

PAT: Oh, they know, my friend. So, anyway, Alvin Greene had no campaign. He literally did not one official fund racer. He didn't do one official event. There was no media, there were no advertisements. He spent no money. $10,000 to register, sign up, or whatever.

GLENN: And isn't he a criminal?

PAT: Well, he's charged with -- he's got a porn charge on his record and --

GLENN: What's a porn charge?

STU: He showed porn to an unwilling participant and asked her back to the apartment.

PAT: You know, but who among us --

STU: But who among us haven't --

GLENN: An unwilling participant? What kind of a great move that is. Let me tie you to the chair. Let's watch porn and then we can go back to my place?

STU: There was no tieing. He just asked nicely, I'm sure. He seemed like quite a gentleman.

PAT: He seems like a very confused, nice guy, and so now the media --

GLENN: Where did he get $10,000 to --

PAT: Nobody knows. He said it was his and --

GLENN: A guy who --

PAT: Life savings.

GLENN: -- offered an evening of porn --

STU: We don't know it was the whole evening.

GLENN: A few minutes of porn.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Is usually not the guy who's got, like, $10,000 lying around.

STU: That's a broad generalization and I would say --

GLENN: But it is my experience that guys like this, to quote the President -- go ahead.

PAT: So, James Clyburn, the powers that be in South Carolina are all hacked off because this guy has no chance of beating Dement. It's not like the other guy had any chance.

GLENN: No.

PAT: So, anyway, the TV station went out and they interviewed at least one of these people to find out, why did you vote for Alvin Greene and here's what one of them said.

VOICE: I voted for him because his name sounded like the singer and I had never heard of Vic Rawl.

PAT: His name sounded like the singer, Al Green from the Seventies, and she had never heard of Vic Rawl.

GLENN: Is it Lou Rawls?

PAT: That's another singer.

GLENN: That's a tough contest. Al Green -- not for me. It's Al Green over Lou Rawls.

PAT: Oh, you've to be kidding.

 

GLENN: No. Yeah. It's Al Green over Lou Rawls.

PAT: Oh, no. It's Lou Rawls over Al Green every time.

GLENN: No?

PAT: Every day.

GLENN: Give me a little Al Green.

PAT: This is Al Green. (Music playing.)

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Oh, I want this guy in Congress. This guy -- can you tell me -- don't you want somebody who's walking up to the podium -- you'll be, like, all right, $130 trillion debt, whatever. Over Lou Rawls?

PAT: Lou Rawls. (Music playing.) Now, this is smooth. This --

GLENN: This is you trapped in your house with your mother's radio.

PAT: What?

GLENN: That's what it is.

PAT: My mother would never have listened to Lou Rawls. She was a --

GLENN: She's that unhip?

PAT: Yeah. She was an Eddie Arnold, Jim Reeves type of chick.

GLENN: Whoa, whoa!

PAT: Yeah. So --

GLENN: How did they even let you in through the tunnel of New York?

PAT: I don't know. I don't know.

GLENN: Wow. No. I mean, Lou Rawls isn't bad. I'm saying if I had to vote, I would be, like --

PAT: You would go Al Green?

GLENN: Yeah. Of course I would.

PAT: So, you understand how this guy got elected?

STU: After that evidence, I think I would go Al Green, too.

PAT: Seriously? Sarah, Al Green or Lou Rawls?

SARAH: No contest, Al Green.

GLENN: You grew up in some type of prison-like atmosphere where Lou Rawls turned out -- I mean, Lou Rawls was good and Al Green turned out to be bad. You're a psycho. You're a danger to society and yourself.

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."
