GLENN: Pat was just telling me that he was at the bookstore and he saw Who is Barack Obama, where in it, it's a kid you know, book for your kids, what exactly are civil rights. Under a picture of Martin Luther King, the right to vote is one; so is the right to a decent education and a decent job. That is true, if you lived in the former Soviet Union. That is not true here. You have a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Pursue your own happiness. People can't not hire you because of your skin color, but they can not hire you because you suck. You don't have a right to a decent job.

You're getting the slow indoctrination. And Pat said that when he was in the bookstore, he saw

PAT: Also available in the children's section is that fantastic Howard Zinn book History of America which is

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: And then we're just finding out that this progressive historian Howard Zinn

GLENN: Communist.

PAT: Was a communist.

GLENN: We knew he was a communist but nobody would admit that he was a communist.

PAT: But now it's come out in an FBI file released on Friday, sure enough.

GLENN: On Friday. Isn't it interesting that it came out on... Friday. That's when stories are dumped. One of the other things you find out on Friday with Howard Zinn, that he was a communist? He also had a very close communist relationship with somebody else. Frank Marshall Davis. Who was Barack Obama's mentor? Hmmm. Hmmm.

Hey, could somebody do me a favor? Does anybody have time to find out anything they can on that meeting between Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama? Remember when they went over and like, hey, Vlad, how you doing? "Good, I'm very good." And they got together and they spoke for about an hour, which was I think longer than that you had they were scheduled to speak for. And it was closed doors. It was just the two of them. And Putin came out and when they were asked, you know, what did they talk about, the White House responded that Vladimir Putin was just helping Barack Obama with the real history of the Cold War.

PAT: I'll bet he was.

GLENN: I'll bet he was. I'll bet he was. Well, he may not need to because Howard Zinn was a good friend of Barack Obama's mentor and Howie is, of course, a communist or was a communist. Frank was a communist. And Barack Obama has none of those tendencies.

PAT: None. Nothing.

GLENN: Nothing like that.

PAT: Nothing in common with those guys.

GLENN: Nothing, nothing.

PAT: Well, you know, other than hanging out with Marxist professors in college and, you know, a Marxist pastor for 20 years. Nothing else in common with him.

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.
