Mitt & the Media

GLENN: The media bias, it just kills me. In the book -- and thank you so much for making the book now number 3 on the New York Times list. We're over two months we've been in the top five of the New York Times list. Still can't get the New York Times to review it or anyone else to review it but it doesn't really matter. I mean, it's so irrelevant now. We're coming up with, we're approaching like half a million books sold and it's incredible and it's all because you just passed it on from one person to the next but talking about media bias, we talk about it in the book.

The best example of media bias that's going on right now is -- and I don't know if anybody else has known this. It's sometimes difficult to understand how the media covers the news, especially when you're in the media, how they pick and choose the news. It's, especially around election time. It's very, very interesting. For example, how do they know which primaries are important? Glad to know that. Seems to me that some are extraordinarily important and others, even when it's a close race, barely even worth a mention. Why is that? Apparently we do have some sort of a rule developing here that I just don't understand. The truly important primaries are the ones that Romney doesn't win. Iowa's important, Wyoming isn't. New Hampshire is important, despite the fact that Wyoming has more delegates than New Hampshire. New Hampshire is also more important than Michigan, which also has more delegates and where more people voted than all of the other primaries combined. South Carolina is important but Nevada isn't, even though Nevada once again has more delegates and the fact that Nevada is apparently important to the Democrats. Are you following me so far? This is the new rule. It's very hard, but once they put it up in a chart with just a slogan, if Romney wins, it's not important. You mark my words. Florida is suddenly not going to be important. Story line goes that Michigan just rewarded Romney because he's their state's favorite son, although he left the state when he was a kid, something that McCain pointed out before the vote. This guy has no ties here, he left before he was a kid. Then during his concession speech McCain said that it was nice of Michigan to reward their favorite son, something that he said before the election wasn't true. And that line of thinking because John McCain said it, immediately adopted by the media. Nevada, however, is a different story. I mean, it's obvious now. This is what they're reporting. It is obvious that Romney was going to win, wildly expected, spent so much money. Romney was the man to win, wildly expected. Really? It was? That's weird. Six days, six days before the caucus in Nevada, it was a 4-point lead for John McCain. By the way, that lead was not over Romney. That lead was over Giuliani. Romney was not only behind McCain at 22%, Giuliani at 18%. He was also behind Huckabee at 16%. Romney in Nevada, six days before the election at 15%. Some polls had him with a lead but nothing like the 51/14 win he wound up pulling off, Ron Paul coming in second. Now, does this give him any momentum? Of course not. People today are saying if he doesn't win Florida, he should drop out. Of course not. Why? Because the Nevada win was all about Mormons. Did you know that the state has 9% Mormons is this so 0 that 9% gave him the 51% lead, that 9% did. All the Mormons that came out to vote for Romney, of the Mormons, he won the Mormons. He made the Mormon vote. It's absolutely true. The problem is Romney also won every other religion. All the Catholics that came out, he won all the Catholics. All the Presbyterians, he won all the Presbyterians. All the Baptists, he won all the Baptists. In fact, Romney won every single demographic category of the 67 exit polls measured except for three and most of them by a very wide margin. The three he lost, Ron Paul won the independents. Ron Paul won the one with no stated religion and Ron Paul also won the all important white atheist category. And if you can't capture the white atheist category, well, Romney won every other single category. Now, obviously you can attribute some of the reaction to tradition and not some anti-Mitt Romney bias. South Carolina has picked the nominee for the last 25 years. I get it. But let's put things into perspective here. Romney shouldn't be dropping out of Florida. Even if he loses Florida. Which, by the way, a new Rasmussen report, a new poll out just today, you'll find it on the front page, shows Romney now ahead in Florida. It was a three-way tie. McCain, Giuliani, all about 18%. It now shows Romney. Everybody else still at 16 and 18% and Romney at 25% in Florida. So he should definitely drop out of Florida. This guy has momentum despite what the media is doing to him. This guy has momentum despite all of the candidates ganging up on him. He's run the most consistent campaign against the early states with his worst finish in a close race for 3rd with Fred Thompson in South Carolina. His worst finish was third place. And yet the messenger of change is John McCain and Hillary Clinton. My goodness, I just, I just don't understand that.

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.
