Glenn Beck: The Bees Know



The Bees Know


Exclusive new t-shirt from the Glenn Beck...

GLENN: Glenn Beck was talking about bees, specifically asking the audience at Saturday night's Bold Fresh Tour if they would be surprised to see President Barack Obama one day walk out of the White House covered head to toe in bees, hovering and nestling around him, then shake them off and see them form a presidential seal behind him. It was a good laugh line, crowd erupted, but it served as the conclusion to a lengthier Beck theory about why flies, rats and other insects and rodents appear to be attracted to President Obama. It is is it because as his co star Bill O'Reilly suggested that he is the Antichrist? Well, I'm not necessarily saying that, said Beck, smiling. Later in the show O'Reilly brought it back up. Beck finally relented, oh, come on, I'm completely joking. But as I sat in the audience, I couldn't help but wonder if anyone in the thousand plus crowd by the way, that was 2500 but who's counting had bought into the complete joke Beck mixed with his very real and very often convincing conservative stumping.

PAT: Oh, the Mediaite guy was convinced?

GLENN: I think so.

PAT: Did you notice that?

GLENN: I believe he's turning.

PAT: And very often convincing.

GLENN: See, I read that as

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: I now have

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: media eyes and so I read that as, "For the stupid." He doesn't even believe it but he's very convincing, and he convinces the stupid.

PAT: I don't think that's what he was saying there.

GLENN: Really?

PAT: Yeah, I didn't get that.

GLENN: It's actually a very fair

PAT: It's a good review.

GLENN: This is one of the only sites that I think actually tries to get it right. They don't.

STU: Not all the time, no.

GLENN: They don't all the time. Sometimes they do.

STU: A lot of times they do.

PAT: But I mean, this review is really good.

GLENN: Yeah. Jokes aside, Bold Fresh Tour which concluded its eight show sold out run on Saturday returns in the fall. It was an entertaining two hours. This is the media. It was an entertaining two hours, especially for Fox News obsessed fans making up the audience. Beck kicked off the show in short sleeve collared shirt, jeans and Converse sneakers spending a little time before dropping a "communist revolutionary in the White House" line to uproarious applause. He joked about his time at CNN saying nothing could Jill the joy of working in TV faster than CNN. Almost on cue the woman in the front row who didn't appear to be particularly excited to be there revealed she worked for CNN. The crowd booed. She had come to the show bringing her companion, father maybe, for his birthday? That's seriously that was unkind and unnecessary.

PAT: But it was, you know, very much older. Very much.

GLENN: Beck got serious several times during his 25 minute set including a rousing reading of the give me your tired and poor that he did at CPAC. Bill O'Reilly took the stage the next half hour. His approach was lighter than Beck. He joked about Sean Penn, blah, blah blah. The crowd loved O'Reilly but not to the degree of Beck. I have to read that to Bill. Beck and O'Reilly returned together for a joint segment, blah, blah blah. Every mention of Eric Holder and Joe Biden came with a steady stream of boos and yells, references for voting for O'Reilly's shoe over President Obama in 2012 was met with applause and cheers.

STU: I'd vote for O'Reilly's shoe.

PAT: I would absolutely.

GLENN: Over Barack Obama?

PAT: Yes. The shoe wins every time.

GLENN: Absolutely.

PAT: The shoe.

GLENN: Yeah. The shoe could come right off of a bomber of an airplane and I'd consider it. I probably wouldn't buy it but I'd consider it. I'd be like... was it just the wearer that was involved with extremist Islam, or was it the shoe? I don't understand the shoe. Maybe we should get to know the shoe a little bit better. Maybe we did something to piss the shoe off. I don't know.

PAT: We should look back into his manufacturing days.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: How was he manufactured? We don't know about the shoe.

GLENN: We don't.

STU: Manufactured in China.

GLENN: As the crowd rose to its feet for a standing ovation, one woman in the front row remained notably seated, but she was busy anyway. Glenn Beck had come over to shake her hand. Yes, I did. I felt bad for her. It was like punishment. You know, she did something nice for her husband, or companion or grandfather, whoever, and, I don't know who she was, but the bees do. That's all I know.

PAT: Oh, the bees know.

GLENN: Well, the bees.

PAT: The bees always know.

GLENN: The bees always know. What do they know exactly, Pat?

PAT: Are you a bee?

STU: Yeah, you would only know if you're a bee.

PAT: Only the bees know.

GLENN: Oh, only the bees know?

PAT: I don't know. I'm not a bee.

GLENN: By the way, "The Bees Know" T shirt only because it's going to drive the left crazy. What is he saying about the bees and what do the bees know? What do they know about Barack Obama?

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."
