GLENN: Let me play Lawrence O'Donnell, this is said on

MSNBC on Friday, not a

peep from the mainstream media on this. Nothing on this.

VOICE: "I, Glenn, unlike you, I am not a progressive. I am not a liberal who is

so afraid of the word that I had to change my name to progressive."

VOICE: "I'm not either. Liberals amuse me."

VOICE: "I'm a socialist. I live to the extreme left. The extreme left of you

mere liberals. Okay? However, I know this about my country: Liberals are 20

percent of the electorate. Conservatives are 41 percent of the electorate. Okay.

So I don't pretend that my views, which would ban all guns in America, make

Medicare available to all in America, have any chance of happening in the

federal government. Okay. You can sit there and pretend that liberals should run

more liberal in conservative districts. The reason -- you love the loss of the

Blue Dogs -- you have because it disproves your point."

VOICE: "Chris, you can't go to break."

VOICE: "The only way you have a chairman Barney Frank, there's only one way

that's by electing Blue Dogs. It's the only way you have..."

GLENN: Do you understand what he just said? What he said is, A, I'm a socialist.

Do you have that?

PAT: Let that sink in for a second. There's a guy on national television,

supposedly a journalist, I don't know what he is really, what is he? A

commentator.

STU: Commentator and former actor.

PAT: He's a socialist. That's right, he was.

STU: Former actor.

PAT: That brings a little more clarity to it.

GLENN: What a surprise. It does. Okay. So there's Lawrence O'Donnell on NBC and

he's a socialist. There's the first thing that he said. But the second is, you

know, you progressives, you're so ashamed of being called a liberal that you

changed to progressive, you have to change the word to progressive. I'm not

ashamed of who I am. I'm a socialist. But you progressives think that what they

should have done is run farther to the left. The socialist says no, no, no. The

best thing you can do is hide behind the Blue Dog democrats, elect them, because

then you'll get Barney Frank as your chairman. You see?

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: So what he's saying is live in the shadows. At the same time he's saying

I'm not ashamed of who I am. He's saying live in the shadows.

PAT: But he's also admitting this is a rare moment of all honesty and clarity.

He's also admitting this is a center right nation and there's no way liberals

can ever have a Barney Frank as a chairman without hiding behind the shadows.

GLENN: Right. You'll never get -- because nobody agrees. He says what I know

about my country is no one agrees with me. So hide. That's incredible.

PAT: It is.

GLENN: Now, nobody is doing anything on this. Nobody's showing that. It's no big

deal, apparently. Well, I wonder when I start to expose George Soros starting

tomorrow night -- and tonight, really -- I don't know if you saw Friday's show.

But Friday's show we showed you how in 15 days how this damn thing -- how it

will just shimmy apart. And I'm going to get into that again later on on this

broadcast today. I know Pat is very excited to talk.

PAT: Yes, I am.

GLENN: Economic theory.

PAT: I have a thrill going up my leg. That doesn't happen to me very often.

GLENN: Thrill or a chill?

PAT: Thrill. It's an absolute thrill. Chris Matthews type thrill.

GLENN: I'm going to show you and the reason you have to understand that, you

have to understand what's happening on that, is because it's all related. It's

all related. It's related to what the president is saying over in India. It is

related to George Soros. It's related to the birth pangs. It's all related. And

once you see it, you will never see the world the same way. It really is the

blue pill and the red pill. Beginning today, this week, is blue pill and red

pill, would you agree with that?

PAT: Where one pill makes us taller and one pill makes you small.

GLENN: Stu, would you agree with that, that this is the week -- do you know

enough about what we're presenting this week on Soros and everything? Have you

read enough of this research? I think this is blue pill/red pill, this is the

"Matrix." Go back to sleep if you want to or see the "Matrix."

STU: I think you made a good argument. Pat, as you said, there's just been stuff

I've seen in outlines I've never come close to hearing.

PAT: It's unbelievable. We do this every day, how do we not know about it.

GLENN: I will tell you the answer on how we don't know about it in just a

second. I thought about it this weekend, like you and Stu just said, I can't

believe it. I can't believe it. I was the same way. And I know the answer. And

going in you should know the answer.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
