Glenn Beck: The most wrongly named person in the history of mankind

GLENN: In news about the most wrongly named individual in the history of mankind, Joy Behar, because there's not one ounce of joy that comes out of her, a clip that went largely unnoticed from the president's appearance on The View was this question from Joy Behar.

BEHAR: Your accomplishments. And yet the rightwing, through Fox News and other outlets, they seem to be hijacking the narrative. We're

GLENN: Hang on just a second. So the rightwing seems to be hijacking the narrative. How

PAT: And the one outlet she can name is Fox News.

GLENN: Fox News and other outlets. What other outlets?

PAT: One! Fox News and?

GLENN: And... the New York Times? No.

PAT: You know, what movies, mainstream movies?

GLENN: Washington Post! Mainstream movies?

PAT: No, no.

GLENN: Prime time television?

PAT: No. Any other network? All three networks?

GLENN: No.

PAT: Other cable news outlets like MSNBC?

GLENN: Talk radio?

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Yes, talk radio.

PAT: Okay. So you have talk radio.

GLENN: They are the other outlets.

PAT: Fox News.

GLENN: Fox News and the other outlets.

PAT: And we hijacked the narrative.

GLENN: Well, that's what happens.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: One guy gets onto a plane and he high jacks it.

PAT: There you go.

GLENN: Everybody else is saying, we're going to Obamaville.

PAT: Hmmm.

GLENN: And how do you let that one passenger hijack this plane to Obamaville? So what does she say? Let's roll.

BEHAR: What side is the narrative? Where is your attack dog to come out and tell the American people, listen, this is what we did?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Joy, that's your job.

PAT: Did you catch that? That's your job. You should be the attack dog.

GLENN: I do! I do!

PAT: And I'm only one woman!

GLENN: That's what I do!

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: She is an attack dog.

PAT: There is so much there.

GLENN: Imagine, imagine.

PAT: An attack dog for the administration. That's fantastic. Is that really what you're supposed to be doing?

GLENN: Yet another job saved or created by Barack Obama.

STU: But that is really his vision of what the media does.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: They attack the other side to protect him, yeah.

GLENN: That's it. That's your job. Play that again. Because I think that's phenomenal.

BEHAR: your accomplishments and yet the rightwing through Fox News and other outlets, they seem to

GLENN: Hold on just a second. Hold on just a second.

PAT: I knew we wouldn't get through it.

GLENN: I know, hang on. I just can't is anyone feeling joy?

STU: How can you not?

GLENN: I mean, there's just, she should be renamed. Since you and the left have given the president so much power, I'm thinking about running for president just so I can use an executive order to force a name change on you.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: You can get your friends in congress to try to stop me. Congress has no power. By the time I get in, I will force name changes on people like you.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Yeah. Well, it's true. I mean, listen. Tell me this is not the antithesis of joy.

BEHAR: Hijacking the narrative. Where on your side is the narrative? Where is your attack dog to come out and tell the American people, listen, this is what we did?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Joy, that's your job.

PAT: That's your job, Joy. That's your job.

GLENN: He did sound like that.

PAT: Yeah, he did. That's your job, Joy.

GLENN: Joy, that's your job. What do you mean, tell them what we know what they did! Joy, you don't need anybody to tell us what they did.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
