Glenn vs. Tania

GLENN: I last night had the most bizarre argument with my wife at 11:00 at night. And I just said to her, you are seriously not having this argument with me. And here it is. That hot babe with the Jets, my wife was actually saying, "Well, she deserved it." I said, what?

PAT: She deserved it?

GLENN: Well, she didn't say she deserved it. She said she's stupid.

PAT: Well, okay.

GLENN: And I said

PAT: And what was your problem with that?

GLENN: Well, I don't know. I've never talked to this really hot sports reporter.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: But how is she stupid exactly? And she said, look at the way she's dressed. And I said, oh, don't, really don't go down this road. Look at the way she's dressed? And she said, yes. You don't go

PAT: Into a locker room of football, NFL football players dressed like that? I agree with that.

GLENN: Tania, is that you?

PAT: I agree with that.

GLENN: Really, do you?

PAT: I agree with that.

STU: You've gotten much, much uglier, Tania.

GLENN: So in other words, this is my wife's point. Guys are visual and you are going into a locker room with a bunch of football players. So we have a lower standard? Or are you just saying that it is are we not judging people by the content of their character but by their job status?

PAT: No.

GLENN: Or by what? What are we

PAT: First of all we have to define what's harassment?

GLENN: No, no, no. No, no.

PAT: First of all she said she didn't even notice anything wrong.

GLENN: We didn't even get there. We didn't even get there. And my wife was saying she's visual men are visual. And I said, oh, thank goodness, honey, I hope I don't walk by a hooker who's really hot today because I'm visual and I just won't be able to contain myself.

STU: This is a great excuse for you. You can do whatever you want.

GLENN: I know.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I kept making her point. I said, oh, my goodness, thank you, honey, for permission. She said, well, not you. And I said, why? Are guys different? Do we hold people to different standards? Or do we say there's one standard? I don't care if you're a football player or who you are, you don't do that.

PAT: What happened?

GLENN: they're throwing footballs at her? I mean, that's not harassment.

PAT: That's not. And they weren't throwing them at her. They were throwing them toward her.

STU: So they could look at her.

PAT: You know, so probably the wide receiver could get over there and take a look at her and then

GLENN: I mean, may I?

STU: That's not a criminal act.

PAT: That's not a criminal act.

GLENN: That is not a criminal act.

PAT: Harassment. That's not a criminal act.

GLENN: Almost let me just say something. I saw the picture of her yesterday like 4,000 times.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And I think there is magnets in her pants and steel in my eyes because

STU: It's hard not to look at certain areas.

GLENN: It is hard not to look.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: It could be the magnet thing or I was just weak and pathetic. But so you can understand it, but that is a man. That's the part you're supposed to overcome. That's the natural man part of you.

STU: Right.

GLENN: True.

STU: I mean, there's a huge line here between harassment and noticing.

PAT: Right.

STU: And you know what? Every time, you know, you drive by someone who looks attractive and you might slow down and look?

GLENN: For instance

STU: You could get to any ridiculous extent of that.

GLENN: For instance, here's the thing. When I first saw her picture on TV, I mean, I was like, holy cow, that's a nice photograph. Then

STU: That's not what you said.

GLENN: Every time

PAT: You were admiring the photograph?

GLENN: Yes, I was. It's an art thing. But anyway, so

PAT: So you're wondering who took the picture.

GLENN: So I was wondering who took that. That is very nice framing.

PAT: Mmm hmmm.

GLENN: So I am looking at that and I, of course, have the natural man thought. Now, the rest of the time that it comes on TV, I try to avoid it. And then when I do see on TV, I'm thinking, I know why this is on TV.

STU: I didn't try to avoid it at all because it's part of the story, Glenn. You have to understand that this is a photo she released in her own defense. And if you don't examine the photo, you are not acknowledging her evidence, her backup or her side of the story.

GLENN: This is part of these, the argument that my wife and I had. She said, why would she release these photos of her? And I said, what part of her outfit, her shoulders are covered, she's wearing long pants. Granted, they are very, very tight pants.

STU: They that is a complete understatement. They could not possibly be tighter than they are.

GLENN: I think I could challenge that.

STU: I disagree. I don't think it's possible. I don't think it's possible for them to be tighter.

GLENN: We could ask her to try on the size smaller.

STU: There's no way she could get in. She would get in up to her calves and she would give up. She would give up with hopeless

GLENN: This is where you go. This is where you go. Now, all right. So I said to her also, I said, honey, have you ever watched Telemundo? She's a Spanish reporter, right?

PAT: Azteca or something, TV Azteca?

GLENN: For Mexico TV?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Have you ever watched Mexican TV?

STU: Well

GLENN: Yes. Every

STU: Every man in America.

GLENN: Do you speak Spanish?

STU: I do not, no.

GLENN: Neither do I. I've watched Telemundo, okay? Every guy, you know, will pretend that we're watching it, try to figure out what's going on. No, we're not. They're all hot and scantily clad. I mean, this is the way it is. So it's part of her job. If she's not looking and dressing like that, she's not going to be on

STU: She advertises herself as the hottest

GLENN: She's on Mexican television.

STU: Yes. But for her to advertise herself as the hottest sports reporter in America and then act shocked when people think she's hot, I mean, she's defined herself as hot!

GLENN: No. Wait, wait.

PAT: But this is the key to the argument and we should come back and talk about it because we're out of time, but I think that is the key.

GLENN: That is the key to the argument.

STU: It doesn't excuse the excuse.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: They say Pat calls

PAT: There doesn't seem to be abuse in this case.

GLENN: I agree with you.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I agree with you. But let's not also, let's not excuse, somebody comes in dressing inappropriately or whatever as, guys, you don't become pigs.

STU: No. Of course not.

PAT: No.

STU: Don't excuse it.

PAT: But when you walk into an NFL locker room, guys are in their towels or, you know, some of them probably naked.

STU: And who's getting harassed there? They're naked.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: Why do they have to be interviewed by a woman.

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

STU: Sorry.

GLENN: Dom, can you put the picture back up? Because that's a new picture. I haven't seen it.

PAT: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: The new picture.

PAT: I didn't know we could do that.

GLENN: Now look at the framing on that.

PAT: Now see, for those not watching on the Insiders, which is 99.9%. Insider Extreme.

GLENN: Holy

STU: Is that a catcall? Did you just make a catcall?

PAT: There is a photo of her now and you are not even in the locker room naked and she's flashed on the screen in the studio.

GLENN: So me being in the locker room naked

PAT: And you're making explanations.

GLENN: Wait a minute, wait a minute. It would be okay for me to make these comments?

PAT: Is it okay? No. But you are probably going to make some sort of exclamation. These are NFL football players and they are going to

GLENN: Okay. So we have a lower standard. I just want to make sure. We have a lower standard of ethics for NFL football players.

PAT: No. But there is a higher standard for harassment. I'm sorry if you're embarrassed. Don't go into a men's locker room. If you don't want to be embarrassed, don't go in there and interview superstars.

GLENN: Dom, for the love of Pete, take the picture off the Insider Extreme. I can't I'm surrounded by monitors, please.

STU: I'm being deluged with photos from everyone I know right now of this. This is not what I need in the middle of a broadcast. I don't know what you guys said for the last three minutes. I have absolutely no idea.

GLENN: See, that's what it is.

STU: This is a problem.

GLENN: My wife is right about guys being visual, but that doesn't excuse us.

STU: You are the one doing catcalls.

GLENN: I mean, unless it does, honey.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
