TIME person of the year: Glenn Beck?




TIME person of the year: Glenn Beck?

STU: I am at Time.com right now and let me tell you what I see there. A list of the top 25 people to be listed for the person of the year.

GLENN: Uh huh.

STU: 2010 person of the year. There's a lot of people you would recognize on there. The guy from wick key leaks is on there.

GLENN: Is the person of the year, well, I guess he is huge.

STU: Lady Gaga is on there, Barack Obama who is the President of the United States.

GLENN: Uh huh.

STU: In case you didn't know that.

GLENN: Man of the year. That's actually legitimate.

STU: Yeah. Sure. Then you have let's see. Hu Jintao from China.

GLENN: Probably the man of next year.

STU: Nancy Pelosi. A lot of people

GLENN: Clearly the man of

STU: Certainly. Tony Hayward from BP. LeBron James and then another guy, Glenn Beck.

PAT: Nominated for Time's person of the year?

STU: Yes.

GLENN: Here's the thing. My wife woke me up last night or we were actually just laying in bed and she I'm answering e mails and stuff and she said, Hey, Time person of the year. Congratulations. And I said, what? She said, yeah. I just got a note, you were nominated for Time's man of the year. And I said, no, no, no. They wrote me a few days ago and asked if I wanted to nominate somebody and she said, No. You were just nominated for it. I said, no, honey. They just asked if I wanted to nominate somebody and I didn't respond. And she said, well, they no. Hang on. And then she showed it to me and I couldn't believe it. It was really I mean, that's amazing.

STU: Yeah. It is really cool. There is actually a poll up at time.com in which you can vote who you think should be the person who should win person of the year and it's interesting because I guess you vote and then you also give a rating. So, like, you vote and it goes by total votes and then you also rate them on how influential they were, how important they were. There are 25 people on this list. Dead last in the average rating is Glenn Beck. You have an 18 out of 100 so far.

GLENN: So, I'm dead last.

STU: Yes. Number well, you're no. You're number 9 right now in the total votes, which is the one they're ranking them by, but then you can also when you vote, you rank them. So, people are going there to vote against you. So, I guess I don't know if anyone has a computer. Perhaps they can change that around, but I will note that you are

GLENN: So, I'm, like wait, wait. So, I'm the they're voting for me but they are voting that I am not influential.

STU: Right. Not influential.

GLENN: That is funny. How much George Soros money is being spent there?

STU: The second lowest rated person is LeBron James. He's one point ahead of you at 19 and then you are 9 points behind Tony Hayward from BP.

GLENN: Who is the No. 1 least influential?

STU: The highest rating right now is Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert who are apparently a couple. You vote for them as a couple in this poll.

GLENN: Unbelievable

STU: Which is they have 89.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

STU: Sarah Palin also very low. You're 9 points behind Sarah Palin.

GLENN: Let me tell you something. If I would have responded to Time to nominate somebody, I would have nominated Sarah Palin or the Tea Party. I hate I hate when they do groups, but it's good to see that Sarah Palin was nominated

STU: Yeah. You were also a 41 points behind the President of China.

GLENN: That's probably accurate

STU: Well, yes. That's true.

GLENN: That is accurate.

STU: That's things all become popularity contests, don't they? So

GLENN: The voting, does that even factor in to their

STU: I don't know that it actually factors into their formula for who gets it, but it's certainly a show of

GLENN: Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart, that's what it is. It's a show of

STU: They probably will have the most votes at the end, but they have a little and then you have you are just you're just inching about 30 points behind Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf. So, I think if you can just

GLENN: Unbelievable. Unbelievable. Unbelievable. Well, the good news is that Sarah Palin and I have been recognized not because we should be recognized but that is as close as they're going to come I think to the Tea Party which is still a slam on the Tea Party. I mean, 6 out of every 10 voters was a Tea Party member. Last year Time magazine didn't even include the Tea Party or the 9/11 project or the 9/12 project as anybody at all in the year in pictures, not one photograph of it, not one and this year at least you have a little bit of recognition but not for the right people. Sarah Palin actually much more influential on, I think, on the election. She went out and she actually campaigned, where we barely even talked about the elections

STU: But really going to beat the influence of Paparazzi by lady Gaga? You're not beating that. The bottom line is you're going to win if you're Lady Gaga and you want to win.

GLENN: I know.


 

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
