GLENN: Last night on Bill O'Reilly, what's his name, one of the more despicable human beings alive, I think the

STU: Alan Grayson?

GLENN: No. I said one of, not the.

STU: Not the? Okay, I'm sorry.

GLENN: A guy who is just so far out of step with the mainstream and so angry and bitter and

STU: Alan Grayson?

GLENN: No, he's the.

STU: Oh, okay.

PAT: This guy might be second.

GLENN: I think maybe, maybe.

PAT: Any other ideas? Who might be second, most despicable?

GLENN: Well, almost everybody on MSNBC.

PAT: Well, that's true.

STU: Someone who works for Alan Grayson?

PAT: Well, kind of.

GLENN: Bill Maher. Bill Maher.

PAT: I think his employer might be Beelzebub actually, it might be.


PAT: No.

GLENN: Oh, the one that actually

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Okay. Here's Bill Maher on O'Reilly last night.

Bill Maher on O'Reilly

'Real Time' host spars with O'Reilly over Obama's troubles, conservatives and political extremism

MAHER: There really isn't extremism on both sides. That's a canard.

O'REILLY: There's isn't? There is no extremism on the left?

MAHER: There's not that much extrem There is some but not nothing to talk about. Not really. There's no movement.

PAT: Oh. That's a canard. I chortle over the canard that there's extremism pointing to the left. Show me how we chortle together over that?

GLENN: Yes, yes. Yes. Extremism?

PAT: What?

GLENN: I was just talking about, to my friends at the New party just the other day about the lack of extremism.

PAT: I was blogging at CP USA last night...

GLENN: Okay. Here is a story from, a story I don't think you are going to find any place else. On September 24th, about 20 FBI agents spent most of the day searching the Logan Square residence of Chicago activist Stephanie Weiner and her husband Joseph Losbaker, this according to the Chicago Tribune.

STU: Is there no there's no relation to Weiner Weiner, right? Like when you said

GLENN: I think all Weiners are a Weiner is a Weiner.

STU: The Weiner, you know, the Weiner, the Goldline Weiner guy,, that guy, that's not would cover this Weiner? I think they would. They may.


PAT: Should cover all Weiners, shouldn't it?

STU: This is Weiner based information.

GLENN: This really doesn't, this one doesn't play the Bill Maher thing again? What did he say? Bill Maher, I love it, toast points.

MAHER: There really isn't extremism on both sides. That's a canard.

O'REILLY: There's isn't? There is no extremism on the left?

MAHER: There's not that much extrem There is some but not nothing to talk about. Not really. There's no movement.

GLENN: All right. So anyway, there's no movement here, and this extremism really isn't worth talking about, and that's why the press isn't talking about it. The FBI agent spent most of the day searching the Logan Square residence of the Chicago activist. In 1998 the duo worked as leaders of the Chicago New Party.

STU: I've heard of them.

GLENN: You have?

STU: Yeah, I remember

GLENN: Why would you?

STU: In one particular incidence.

PAT: Remember.

STU: There was a guy who was endorsed by them and worked closely with them.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah.

STU: In a town, the second city?

GLENN: Yeah, they're progressives, progressives in Chicago.

STU: Oh, Chicago? Yeah, it was Chicago.

GLENN: In Chicago, and the New Party there was, well, one of the guys who was, you know, part of the New Party was okay, sure, it was Barack Obama. But also they were endorsed by the Democratic Socialists of America.

STU: That's interesting.

GLENN: So we have the Democratic Socialists of America, and they were the ones that really got Project Vote together. Project Vote, wait a minute. That was Barack Obama, too.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Hmmm.

GLENN: Anyway, they're just

STU: No movement.

GLENN: The FBI just spent the day with them because there was some there were some problems there with the completely unorganized, no really anything to see here or to talk about here. There's no real problem at all.

STU: No, and there's

GLENN: It's just the FBI.

STU: There's no organized effort I mean, you know, there's not like there's groups named A LF and ELF. Like those groups don't exist obviously.

PAT: There's no rioting at G8 or G20 meetings.

STU: No. And it's not like in Europe there were 39 time the amount of terrorist attacks from the leftwing than the rightwing.

PAT: From the left. I mean, that's a canard.

STU: What a canard that was.

GLENN: What a toast point. The New Party is an electoral alliance dedicated to electing leftist candidates to office, usually through the Democratic Party. It was dissolved in 1998. The three organizations formed the backbone of the New Party, the Democratic Socialists of America, the U.S.' largest Marxist organization; ACORN, radical labor union; SEIU were also involved. But also heavily involved was, oh, the Communist Party USA.

PAT: Hmmm.

GLENN: So it's not like there is an organization you know what's really weird? Do you have the guy from the Communications Worker of America, the labor union for the broadcast industry, CWA? Here's the vice president, and he said some really interesting things. There's really nothing. But again, listen to Bill Maher, there's really nothing to talk about. That is a canard. I want you to listen carefully to what the labor union of CWA said about what's happening this weekend in Washington. In Washington they have the 10/2/10 march, and I urge you to watch it. I'm urging Fox I don't know if they will, but I'm urging Fox, please cover this rally. Cover it. It's more important they didn't cover 8/28. I mean, they covered it as news. I mean run the whole thing. Cover this rally. Americans need to see it and hear it and listen to it. But you're going to you have to listen with different ears. You cannot be like the press and the left was. The press and the left did not understand the language of what was being said on the stage. That's why Time magazine reported that Glenn Beck didn't have anything to say. He called all these people together and then he didn't have anything to say. Because they don't understand the language of God. They don't understand the language of hope, faith, of real charity. They don't get that. They don't understand the language of the heartland of America and so they dismiss it. You don't understand the message of Madison, Wisconsin. You need to learn it. You don't understand the language of the New Party. You need to learn it. The language of the Democratic Socialists of America, you need to learn it. Because I guarantee things will be said that we will dismiss that shouldn't be dismissed. It's a different language. Listen to how this has been spun. Here is the labor union vice president of the communications workers of America.

VOICE: One nation under God indivisible with liberty and justice for all are words that we recite when we recite the "Pledge of Allegiance" to our flag. Those are not just words, however. They are ideals that the American people have lived by since the creation of this country. They are ideals that for too long now have been attacked by the antigovernment crazies and the Sarah Palins and the Glenn Becks and the racists and the haters of this country and the people of this country. And the One Nation movement is a movement that has now decided that we should bring together coalitions that have not existed since the 1960s in this country, coalitions that when they existed, changed this country. And we are going to change this country again. We are going to do that because the majority of people in this country do not believe in the haters, do not believe in the antigovernment crazies, do not believe in the tea party, do not believe in the Glenn Becks, do not believe in the Sarah Palins.

GLENN: Okay. One more thing. America is at a crossroads, and you have to vote. But more importantly, you have to decide I've been saying this for two years. If you didn't believe me before, please, if I have an ounce of credibility with you, please, I'm begging you, rent the movie Gandhi today. Please watch it over the weekend. Please go to your church and listen to the spirit. Be a life preserver. Put on the armor of God. You must have it. If you think that this is just a rally and it's no big deal, it's just labor unions and let me give you this: This is coming now from Danny Glover: I'm proud and excited to be part of One Nation Working Together, exciting news, says the organizers of One Nation. That is the event that's happening this weekend. We are thrilled that Danny Glover will be participating.

Now, so you know, Danny Glover, we know that he is a leftist, right? But how left? You know you remember in 2004 he endorsed the anti Bush team protest at the Republican National Convention in New York. It was organized by Not In Our Name, an organization closely associated with anticapitalism and Maoist revolutionaries and the Communist Party. Four years ago Maoist revolutionaries sounded like a joke. That is who is in our White House administration: Maoist revolutionaries.

He is also a good friend of Hugo Chavez, he also signed a statement circulated by the Partisan Defense Committee calling for the release of convicted killer Mumia Abu Jamal who, by the way, serves on the national executive committee for the National Lawyers Guild. Glover also joined with a bunch of other people initiating a group called Progressives For Obama.

Do you see the layers of the onion? First, the first layer is they are Democrats. Now, the next layer that you have to get through is they are just liberals. The next layer is they are progressives. The next layer on that one is they're socialists. Then they're communists. Then they're Maoists. Then they're revolutionaries. I don't know if we've gotten to the center. But you must not it is what the progressives or the liberals, as we used to call them, do. They cover their identity. They change words to make them correct and politically correct, politically acceptable. It is an old communist trick. It's time to stop playing that game, period. You break, break with the system and spit yourself out of the system. You must be totally different. And do not play the game that they are expecting you to play. If you do these things and you vote and you unite, look at who they're uniting with. All kinds of people. If you don't stand together, if they allow to separate us, they have the structure now in place and they have Cass Sunstein who will do it. Mark my words, he will do it. They will shut this place down tighter than a drum. It takes the majority of Americans standing arm in arm and knowing who they are through education, knowing who they are, knowing who we are, knowing what our Constitution says. Not being sheep, not being afraid, not being afraid to lose everything financially, not being afraid to lose your own life. But you stand there linked arm in arm in peace, and you will win. I promise you.

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.

I want to talk to you about something that probably didn't make a lot of sense a long time ago. In fact, I can't tell you how many program directors and how many stations threatened to cancel. Or how many calls I got from the average listener saying; What the hell are you even talking about when I talked about, the leadership of Martin Luther King.

I have done everything I can — as much as I possibly can — to teach you about Martin Luther King and nonviolent protests. And I don't think there's anybody in the media who has talked about nonviolence longer and more in-depth on commercial airwaves than me. Preachers, certainly. But commercial airwaves — I don't think anybody has.

Now I think many are beginning to understand why I tried to lay that foundation. I have told you since September 11th that I have this feeling you are going to be the group of people that will, in the end, save the republic.

I've always believed that. I don't know how it's saved. It might just be preserved in our hearts, I don't know. But I believe it now.

I never wanted us to get to this point — everything I've done is to prevent us from getting here. But everybody is so politically tied to their side that no one will let their shields down and actually listen to one another.

And we're at that desperate point now.

You are equipped to save the republic because you at least hopefully have a fundamental understanding of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. And you have at least a basic understanding of American history. More importantly, what makes this audience so phenomenal is that it is the most generous and service-minded audience of any show in America and perhaps the world.

That's part of what continues to be so frustrating about the Capitol invasion last week. Because you're being maligned.


I know who you are. This is the most peaceful, generous, loving, God-fearing, authentic and patriotic audience in America. And you are frustrated and you are tired of being hit in the face and being called bigot and everything else no matter what you do.

I've been called an anti-Semite just in the last 24 hours by everybody, unjustly.

I get it.

You are now being tainted by the actions of complete imbeciles who do not represent you and me. It's not fair. But that's the hand that we're being dealt and God is in charge and He is not surprised.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights. These are the hallmarks of regime, after regime, after Marxist regime on the ash heaps of history. Now China is still there because they've taken the so-called free market and took the capitalist system and they combined it with their Marxist utopia.

I don't know what's going to happen to the people over there. Especially seeing that our high-tech has joined them to weed out the dissidents. But it's not inevitable that we join them.

And it is going to require us to take a stand. Just not in the way that most people — especially if they're angry — think is most effective. Look at the ratings of BLM. 78 percent of Americans, at the beginning of the summer, thought that they were swell.

That number is in the low 20s now. Why? Because violence doesn't work.

I don't know if you saw the fellowship of the ring, but if you did, do you remember when Frodo said: "I don't want to do this!"

He's lamenting having to face down the evil and he's just one guy. I'll never forget it because it was right after 9/11, that the movie came out. I'll never forget Gandalf's reply. He said: "So do we all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what we're going to do with the time that is given us."

We can't decide what others are going to do. We can't control the dangerous Orwellian darkness that seems to be descending on America. All we can control is our response and strive to lead by example. If you know anyone in your sphere of influence who might be planning to attend one of these armed rallies in the coming days, beg them not to go. Do everything you can to stop them.

That's not a way to take a stand and it will not protect anything you hold dear and it will endanger the republic. It is what the other side wants.

So how do we take a stand?

The first thing I need you to do today is to help lower the temperature. It has been so hard for me not to respond to people on Twitter who have called me every name under the sun because I quoted the leading Holocaust historian last night on Tucker Carlson.

But see, that wasn't an attack on me, that was an attack on Tucker. If you can scare the guests from coming on to Tucker, you destroy Tucker. That's what they're doing.

Do not vent your anger on social media. At this point, it is probably just going to get your account shut down.

I want you to write this down and I want you to keep this in front of you.

Blessed are the peacemakers. For they will be called the children of God.

That means something today, much more than it did six months ago.

Blessed be the peacemakers.

Be a peacemaker.

And this is the hard part, you can't disconnect. Because things are moving too rapidly. You must stay plugged in.

But I want you to reach out to someone in kindness on social media. Encourage someone. Do not engage with the darkness. Be the light in the corner of your world.

You need to be a leader for what is to come.

And I know I'm asking you almost the impossible. I know you're angry and frustrated and it is gut-wrenching to feel that you're powerless to stop your nation from what you believe is sliding into the abyss.

You are not powerless. You are not voiceless.

I believe it too, with everything in me. I wish I was wrong. I hope that I am. I pray that I am. But know this: You are not powerless. You are not voiceless. You may be the only voice that anyone hears. Voices like mine will go away. I am trying to think of what I need to share with you before, God forbid, that ever happens. Because I cannot live with myself if I talked about something stupid politically and I find my voice silenced and then saying, I wish I would have said this or I wish I would have told them that.

You wield more power than you know. Not because of your voice or being able to call your congressman. You're more powerful than you know because you understand the real problem in America. The real problem in America is not political.

It is spiritual.

If you're like me when you get angry, you think that you are going to take on this challenge on your own — you are not being humble. You think you'll fix it. Everything that is happening to us is because we are an arrogant, out of control people.

We must humble ourselves. Please, you have the skill and the strength to endure the fiery darts that are going to come your way or already are. But this is a problem with our hearts.

You cannot reach someone's head without capturing their heart and no one is going to capture anyone's heart through violence.

Start in your own home and then reach out and if you're able, serve your neighbor. If you can, serve your local community. You must be a beacon of light in a very dark place. I'm going to ask you to do something you're really not going to like. And that's how I know things are from God. When I hear something or I think something and I'm like — oh crap, I don't want to do that — and you just know it it's right. You just know it's what God wants. And you're hoping that maybe you didn't hear it.

And it's so horrible. Because it's the last thing you want to do. But God is unlike many of our churches and preachers, He doesn't tell us what we want to hear. He doesn't have to pay for the church or get collection. Or be judged by how many people go.

Rise above the fray, with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.

He'll say the same thing and he'll lose whole flocks. And they'll eventually start to go — oh wait, where is the Shepherd again?

But I have to tell you now some things that I want you to do. And they're not new. But I need you to hear me. I am asking you if you want to stand for the republic, I need you first to pray.

Pray like you've never prayed before. Pray for humility. Pray for guidance. Pray for peace. Pray for those people who you think you hate. Because you don't. Because hatred does not come from any good place.

Then I want you go out and serve someone in any way possible. On inauguration day especially, get your family and your children involved. Volunteer somewhere, take someone a meal. Do something to lift the spirits of hospital workers or your local police department.

Help a stranger mow a lawn, fix someone's car, pick up trash on the side of the highway. Do what you can do. But the most important thing is to do it with a sincere heart. And if someone asks you, why are you doing this? Just say, because I love my country.

Rise above the fray with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.

A pre-Inauguration Day plea: You wield MUCH more power than you know

Early Monday morning, Amazon Web Services removed social networking platform Parler from its cloud servers. This comes just after Apple and Google removed the Parler app from their app stores over the weekend.

"You can't find them on the internet anymore. They're gone," Glenn Beck said on his radio program Monday.

"This is something I warned you of four years ago ... because a profound technological change is coming," he continued. "I told you, at the time, high tech will need the government, and the government will need high tech. And they will work together to preserve their power and their position. This is what's happening, today."

Glenn said he believes the "far left" has been talking about breaking up companies like Parler for years, and that the Capitol riots provided the opportunity they needed.

"This is not the end of this. This is where the Left is starting," he warned. "Those who persist in standing for freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom to assemble, freedom to keep and bear arms, those people will be targeted for deletion. You will be hounded, boycotted, fired, ostracized, and de-platformed. And the louder and the more significant and effective your voice is, the bigger the target is on your back.

"But, let me say this: I will never stop standing for freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom to assemble, freedom to keep and bear arms, and all of the rest of the Bill of Rights. That is the American thing to do."

Glenn Beck: This is the REAL Raphael Warnock and our new 'national religion'

Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images

Multiple news outlets have called one of Georgia's Senate runoff elections for the Rev. Raphael Warnock, the Democrat who defeated Republican incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler.

So, on the radio show Wednesday, Glenn Beck looked into what this "radical preacher" has been saying in the past — and what he'll likely bring to the U.S. Senate in the future.

"Warnock is in one of the most influential and powerful stages of the country. And I use the word 'stage' intentionally," Glenn said. "It's the pulpit. He's the guy who says, if you voted for Donald Trump, well, you're a sinner."

Glenn introduced a video clip in which Warnock asserts:

If it is true that a man who has dominated the news and poisoned the discussion for months needs to repent, then it is doubly true that a nation that can produce such a man and make his vitriol go viral, needs to repent. I know, no matter what happens next month, more than a third of the nation that would go along with this, has reason to be afraid. America needs to repent for its worship of whiteness!

"So, (according to Warnock) you should be afraid," Glenn said. "Oh, and whiteness is evil. And, somehow or another, America has been worshiping whiteness ... see, critical race theory is now our new national religion."
