Glenn Beck: Union fires worker over military T-shirt


The Blaze:


Union Fires Stagehand for Wearing ‘U.S.S. George H.W. Bush’ Shirt & Hat

GLENN: Let me ask you this. When we have the president giving a speech some

place and, you know, for instance in California and some union worker, a union

worker is building the stage and putting things together, hours before the

president arrives, and he has a son who is serving in the military and so he

wears a George H. W. Bush, not George Bush 43 but George Bush 41 and he's

wearing, you know, the blue cap with the, you know, yellow writing that military

wears that says USS George H. W. Bush and then CVN and has the number on it,

he's wearing the carrier cap and he's wearing a carrier jacket because his son

is serving on that ship, since when in America do you lose your job for showing

up working to work in that outfit, hours before, where you can't even build the

stage for the president of the United States wearing a jacket and a hat that

reflects an aircraft carrier that your son is stationed on? I've never heard

that before. Could we play the audio, please, of this dismissed worker?

REPORTER: He is a stagehand, a union stagehand who is working to put up the

Obama rally stage here on campus this morning. He was wearing a hat that said

George H. W. Bush and a sweatshirt that said the same thing. Now, the George H.

W. Bush is the name of an aircraft carrier that Dwayne's son is serving on. His

son has been in the Navy for the last three years. Dwayne says his union fired

him from his job here this morning setting up the stage because he was wearing

clothing with the name Bush on it.

GLENN: When, since when is our president so thin skinned that he can't even have

somebody hours before he arrives working there with a sweatshirt and a hat that

says the name of a carrier? America, where are we headed? Anybody who says that

they are not interested in they are not interested in, you know, voting, they

don't know who to vote for, they don't know what to vote for, get the hell off

your ass. Find out. You are, you are entering a time in America unlike any other

time we've ever seen. No, I can't say that. We haven't seen it since Woodrow

Wilson. We haven't seen it since FDR. Remember what I told you about the Supreme

Court. I said, mark my words this is a year ago: Mark my words. They are going

to go after the Supreme Court. They are going to attack the Supreme Court. When

Obama attacked them during the state of the union address, that was a sign that

that is the next place to attack. And what are they doing? Now the left is suing

the Supreme Court Justice John Roberts. They are suing him. Not the other five.

Just him. They are sending signals. America, you have to understand the

progressive left sends signals. Why do you think they fired Juan Williams? To

send a signal. Do not treat Fox News as anything other than an enemy. They are

an enemy, and if you want to be a friend of ours, you will treat them as an

enemy. You do you cannot have loyalties to both them and us. They are sending a

signal not to America but to journalists. "You better choose carefully" is what

they're saying. Because only one side will stand. And if you stand with them,

you will be done with us. This is a hostile, hostile regime. And America needs

to wake up and know what you're facing and know the way out.

 

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?
