Glenn Beck: Rally for Topless equality

GLENN: So there is a there is apparently a topless rally that is going on. There is a

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: I don't know how else to describe it.

PAT: It is.

GLENN: A campaign.

PAT: A protest, a movement.

STU: I'd like to

GLENN: A fight for rights, that women have the right to go topless.

STU: I completely support this. There's no way it's constitutional to not allow that.

PAT: To not allow women to go

STU: You cannot

GLENN: I believe that you are actually probably accurate.

STU: I

GLENN: Now, here's the great thing about the Constitution. The Constitution says

PAT: It's not a suicide pact.

GLENN: No, no.

PAT: That doesn't really work.

GLENN: Constitution is what the federal government can do.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: It doesn't tell you what the states can and must do.

PAT: It's a charter of negative liberties.

GLENN: Yes, it is. So unconstitutional. The federal government cannot have a law that says, hey, you can't go topless. But states and local communities can.

PAT: Well

STU: I don't know if that's true.

GLENN: Oh, really?

STU: Freedom of speech. Freedom of speech.

GLENN: I'm not going to wear pants then all week.

STU: I'm going to go with freedom of speech. No one wants you to not wear pants. That's not what we're talking about. We're talking about women going topless. That's what we're talking about.

GLENN: I have a right to not wear pants.

STU: No one's talking about your pants.

GLENN: I have a right to

STU: We're talking about topless and we're talking about women.

GLENN: Here's a few of the views from the

PAT: From the women.

GLENN: From the women.

VOICE: We're supposed to have freedom to go topless just as men are, otherwise it's not really an equal right. Men have to cover

STU: See?

VOICE: their breasts just like we do. Otherwise I mean, it's all or none.

PAT: I think, you know, she does sound pretty, first of all.

GLENN: She does.

PAT: Secondly, must we do exactly the same thing in order to be equal? Must we do exactly and be exactly the same?

STU: That's what equal is.

GLENN: I tell you what. I tell you what. Get me a pack of Kool cigarettes.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: While I hack up a lung, scratch myself, and talk to my beautiful, beautiful husband about what, you thought I was the guy?

VOICE: Breasts are not sexual objects. They are just a part of everyday life. We all have them, you know. It's no big deal to go topless down in Austin. It's legal in Austin, and we can do it anytime. But we think it should be legal everywhere.

GLENN: All right. Hang on. She also sounds pretty.

PAT: She might be right about breasts not being sexual on her.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: However, as a general rule, I disagree with the concept.

GLENN: Well, no, I think there's about half the population that disagrees with you on that.

PAT: You think so?

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I think a lot of women would say breasts aren't sexual, but there's a lot of men and some women that might disagree with that.

PAT: Yes.

STU: Can we consider, though, seriously going the opposite way and making it so dudes can't go topless?

PAT: I'm okay with that.

GLENN: I am totally good with that. I am totally good with that.

STU: Either you are really fat and awful or Mr., I'm trying to prove that I do sit ups. Shut up.

GLENN: I've been working out well, twice. I've been working out, and the guy who's helping me work out, he said, you know in eight months you won't be embarrassed to take your shirt off.

PAT: In eight months? I don't have eight months to waste on this. Eight months?

GLENN: And I'm thinking to myself

PAT: Give me eight days, I can maybe hang with you.

GLENN: I'm thinking to myself, A, thanks for assuming that I am embarrassed. I mean, I am.

STU: You are.

GLENN: But thanks for assuming that I'm embarrassed to take my shirt off. And, what, in eight months I can, like, I'll just walk around the office? "I'm a little hot. I'm going to take my shirt off." What is that?

STU: Showing off your ripped abs?

GLENN: Man, it's hot in this room. Anybody mind if I take my shirt off?

STU: Yes, we all mind.

GLENN: Yes, I'm doing it. In eight months I'm doing it. In eight months I'm only going to wear a tie.

PAT: Well, there's a lot of women that agree with you. You should be able to do that just like they should.

GLENN: Yes.

VOICE: The only part of the breast that's actually different between men and women is the area around it and I don't know why people make such a big deal out of nipples. It's kind of silly.

VOICE: We just need to grow up a little bit. I think we need to mature.

PAT: Need to grow up.

STU: You are the one protesting toplessness.

VOICE: A lot of other countries, you know, this is no big deal on the beach. Women can dance around a fire under the stars. There's so much beauty in the human body.

STU: Under the stars.

GLENN: Oh, shush.

PAT: I mean, Europe, dancing around a fire under the stars, what are these moonbeams doing out of the Sixties? I thought we left them back in the groovy man days.

GLENN: No.

PAT: I mean, come on.

GLENN: Bill Ayers is in the White House

PAT: Well, that's true.

GLENN: I mean, Barack Obama's in the White House.

PAT: There's only one kid they talked to, 6 years old, here's the kid with common sense.

VOICE: Girls shouldn't be wearing their shirt, with their shirt off outside because only boys can do that.

PAT: (Laughing). Now, there's a smart kid. There's somebody with some common sense.

GLENN: Who obviously has been taught to hate.

PAT: Mmm hmmm.

STU: Where is his pocket Constitution?

GLENN: Where is it? Where is it?

PAT: He's been taught gender inequality, he's been taught gender differences when really they're all the same.

STU: Everything's the same. Everything's the same.

GLENN: Because this is an equal rights weekend, I'm told.

PAT: All weekend long.

GLENN: I'm going to go topless.

STU: Please don't do that. You want people to come to the rally. We want people to come to the rally.

GLENN: Sarah Palin will not be topless because who wants to see Sarah Palin topless? But me? Everybody's clamoring for it.

PAT: I disagree with that.

PAT: Are you trying are you working for Al Sharpton now?

GLENN: What?

STU: Are you working for Al Sharpton?

PAT: Are you trying to drive people away from the rally?

GLENN: What are you saying?

STU: We're saying that you're hideous. We're saying

GLENN: Well, it might be crowded. You know that Al Sharpton has said that there's no way he's going to allow us to have a bigger crowd than him. And his permit is calling for 3,000 people.

STU: I think 3,000 might be able, you might be able to get 3,000 there.

GLENN: So I'm just

PAT: What are we looking for, about 1500?

GLENN: Well, with my shirt off? About 12. Not 100. About 12.

STU: Totally insane people.

GLENN: Well, there will be security. 12 security people.

PAT: Staff and security.

GLENN: Because they are not looking at me. They are looking around they are looking out. They are not looking

PAT: But if anybody accidentally

GLENN: Can't you see past, can't you see past my C cups?

PAT: No. No, I can't.

GLENN: You can't?

STU: I don't want to see past them, I don't want to see them, I don't want to think about them. Nothing.

GLENN: You thinking about them right now.

STU: Unfortunately, yes, I am, and it's not

GLENN: And they are mainly made out of they are mainly made out of sour cream and butter.

STU: That's what I was thinking of, yes.

GLENN: And ice cream.

PAT: A little gravy, I think, is in there, a little gravy. Because when you get hot, don't you sweat gravy?

GLENN: I do, I do.

PAT: I do, too. So

GLENN: I do, which is great. If we could just have Thanksgiving dinner around August, you could just scrape...

STU: This isn't going to help.

GLENN: Just scrape it off my brow.

PAT: Okay, this has just really degenerated into something unseemly, very unseemly.

STU: This is awful. Beck we need sleep.

PAT: You do.

GLENN: This Saturday could get ugly.

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: I think Tuesday's gotten ugly.

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:
