GLENN: Oh, yes, welcome to NPR, where your tax dollars are spent and pent spent and spent. We spent a lot of money bringing you shows that no one ever watches like Upstairs, Downstairs, like Attic and Basement and Outside and Inside. Tonight we have a very special broadcast, Shakespearian theater. Patrick, what are we expecting in tonight's performance?

PAT: Well, Glennard, we have a marvelous performance by Shakespearian Thespian extraordinaire.

GLENN: Now, many people have seen his performances when he first came on the stage but he hasn't been seen by very many as of the last few years.

PAT: No, he is a rare gem indeed, Glennard, a rare gem indeed.

GLENN: What is the performance that we'll be watching?

PAT: Tonight's performance is Special Comment by Keith Olbermann.

OLBERMANN: The actual place that is the real equivalent right now of the paranoid dream contained in the phrase Ground Zero mosque has been up and running since before there was a World Trade Center and for the nine years since there has been a World Trade Center, running without controversy, without incident, without terrorism, without protest. Because this is America, damn it, and in America when somebody comes for your neighbor or his Bible or his

GLENN: Stop, stop, yes.

PAT: Just a second.

GLENN: Did you see the "It's America, damn it"?

PAT: Damn it! Oh, it was

GLENN: It was expertly done.

PAT: I felt it through the screen, Glennard, through the screen.

OLBERMANN: Or his atheist manifesto or his Koran. You and I do what our fathers did and our grandmothers did and our founders did. You and I speak up.

GLENN: That's right, damn it. We speak up, damn it.

PAT: Although, I don't know that I've ever heard Shakespearian Thespian Keith Olbermann ever explain that someone's Bible has been taken when it has, in fact, been taken; or, "Under God" been removed from the "Pledge of Allegiance" in nine western states. I don't remember him ever saying "This is America, damn it!"

GLENN: It's very interesting to me. Can we play this again because I think this is such a great clip. Listen to him.

OLBERMANN: The actual place that is the real life equivalent right now of the paranoid dream contained in the phrase Ground Zero mosque has been up and running since before there was a World Trade Center and for the nine years since there has been a World Trade Center, running, without controversy, without incident, without terrorism, without protest. Because this is America, damn it.

GLENN: Damn it!

OLBERMANN: And in America when somebody comes for your neighbor or his Bible or his Torah or his atheist manifesto or his Koran, you and I do what our fathers did and our grandmothers did and our founders did.

GLENN: Damn it!

OLBERMANN: You and I speak up.

GLENN: Damn it! Damn it! Oh, yeah! Let me ask you something, Keithy Weithy. Do you think you are going to speak up when people come for the Bible? Do you think you will? Do you think you'll be the oh, I feel sorry for even asking this. You won't be on the air. Because nobody's watching you. "This is America, damn it!" This comes from a guy who has wanted me off the air forever. I celebrate this guy's on the air. I support Keith Olbermann and his idiotic positions.

PAT: This is the only time anybody ever hears him is when we play him on the show.

GLENN: We're helping him.

PAT: We're helping him.

GLENN: We're helping him.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Look, we've thought about doing no, seriously we are helping him. I thought about doing a little, kind of a cool little program where we would ask a listener a day to watch the program, so we knew somebody was watching for Keith.

PAT: And it would double his ratings, if not triple.

GLENN: He doesn't watch it. Who else?

PAT: No, his mom. His mom.

GLENN: His mom watches?

PAT: Mrs.

GLENN: I didn't know that.

PAT: Mrs. Olbermann. She's a saint.

GLENN: She is a saint. Sometimes our mothers are saints, and she's a saint. She watches every night?

PAT: I no.

GLENN: No?

PAT: No.

GLENN: Okay, all right.

PAT: But when she gets a chance.

GLENN: I'm not really, I'm not really sure if she watches.

PAT: No, I don't I don't know. I was just assuming.

STU: But since he's gone through the trouble of joining Insider Extreme to watch every episode of Beck University, I mean, the least we could do is supply one of our ten million listeners to watch one, it's the least.

GLENN: You know what? You make a very good point. This is, after all, America, damn it!

PAT: Somebody should watch.

GLENN: All right. All right. We should redistribute the audience. He should just level the audience playing field and just force people to watch him so we could all be equal. See, we're all created equal, Keith, but we don't all have equal results. And you know that. You know that. Because your results in prime time, very, very unequal to mine at 5:00 p.m. In fact, your entire network, very unequal to mine at 5:00 p.m. It's kind of a, kind of a tough place to be.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: But it's hey, God just keeps kicking you in the head until you get it. So you can either start to get it, or list just keep getting kicked in the head

PAT: Get kicked in.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: You know.

GLENN: 'Cause and I wouldn't want to say that God is kicking your head in. Currently I am. So

STU: Imagine the ratings God would have. They would be really big.

GLENN: They would be really big. They would be really big. Those are big shoes. I've got my head kicked in by God before. Big shoes, big shoes. He packs quite a wallop.

First, President Joe Biden nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline, driving the price at the pump through the roof. Now, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg has floated the idea of taxing every mile you drive as a way to pay for Biden's massive infrastructure spending proposal. So much for buying an electric car to save money at the pump. It's almost as if they want you to feel the coming pain as deeply as possible.

California's Board of Education voted unanimously to approve a new, multi-million-dollar Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum, which will be offered statewide with many of the state's largest school districts making it a requirement for graduation. According to National Review, the curriculum is "probably the most radical, polemical, and ideologically loaded educational document ever offered up for public consideration in the free world."

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck reacted to the newly approved curriculum, calling it "the craziest, most terrifying story I have ever had to report."

Glenn read an excerpt from the National Review report describing the curriculum:

Students are to be taught that white Christian settlers committed "theocide" against indigenous tribes when they arrived in the New World by murdering Native American gods and replacing them with the Christian God. According to the curriculum, this replacement ushered in a regime defined by "coloniality, dehumanization, and genocide," and the "explicit erasure and replacement of holistic Indigeneity and humanity." But all is not lost, we are told. For students will learn that they have the power and the responsibility to build a social order defined by "countergenocide," which will eventually supplant the last vestiges of colonial Christianity and pave the way for the "regeneration of indigenous epistemic and cultural futurity."

Students first clap and chant to the god Tezkatlipoka — whom the Aztecs traditionally worshipped with human sacrifice and cannibalism — asking him for the power to be "warriors" for "social justice." Next, the students chant to the gods Quetzalcoatl, Huitzilopochtli, and Xipe Totek, seeking "healing epistemologies" and "a revolutionary spirit." Huitzilopochtli, in particular, is the Aztec deity of war and inspired hundreds of thousands of human sacrifices during Aztec rule. Finally, the chant comes to a climax with a request for "liberation, transformation, [and] decolonization," after which students shout "Panche beh! Panche beh!" in pursuit of ultimate "critical consciousness."

Glenn explained some of the horrifying details of the Aztec worship traditions California's educators and administrators seek to "regenerate," including human sacrifice by the tens of thousands, cannibalism, and the severe and prolonged torture and sacrifice of children.

"Those are the gods that they [the Board of Education in California] think really need to be worshiped and brought back in our understanding because that whole Christian God was only about 'oppression'," Glenn said sardonically.

"Gang, we are in biblical-sized trouble," he added. "We are under attack from the forces of darkness unlike anything I've ever seen before ... because the soul of our nation, and the soul of children, is at stake."

Cigna — the 13th largest corporation in the U.S. measured by revenue — has recently started teaching employees critical race theory. Those lessons, however, have been "quietly" protested by some workers who leaked lesson screenshots to the Washington Examiner.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and co-host Stu Burguiere discussed a lesson on "inclusive language" — and you won't believe which phrases Cigna classifies as offensive. Do you use any of these phrases in your daily life?

WARNING: Here's who's REALLY behind 'spooky, right-wing' extremism

Over the past year, the left has tried to paint conservatives as "spooky, right-wing" extremists who want to destroy the nation. But true conservatives know that's not true. However, there is a dangerous global movement that fits this "spooky" definition — masquerading as "right-wing" — and it's gaining momentum. It's called Traditionalism, with a capital "T."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," author and award-winning expert on the radical right Professor Benjamin Teitelbaum joined Glenn to define Traditionalism and explain why it's exactly how the left wants to paint conservatives — but that couldn't be further from the truth.

Teitelbaum said Traditionalism is the "most transformative political movement of the early 21st century" in his book, "War for Eternity," which Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald called "an indispensable text" for understanding "the most profound and tumultuous political shifts defining societies on every continent." It's a bizarre story, involving Steve Bannon, Hinduism, Hitler, mysticism, Aleksandr Dugin, the Constitution, and tons and tons of money.
