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.

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.
