Elton John On His Charity Work: Government Should Be Doing Our Job For

Us But They’re Not

GLENN: All righty. Could we play, could we play Elton John and his latest

comment? I want you to understand that this is where the progressive left is,

and this explains everything. This is why we don't understand each other

anymore.

PAT: He's at his AIDS charity.

ELTON JOHN: I'm set up as charity so I can help people. I know a lot of

charities are set up by, you know, the Gates Foundation, the World Health

Organization, the Clinton Foundation because they want to help people. And it

seems that individuals are trying to help people, whereas government should be

doing this adjunct for us but unfortunately they are not. And so we have to step

up to the plate and try and do as much as we can.

PAT: Is that amazing?

GLENN: That -- that's the progressive understanding.

PAT: It is.

GLENN: The government --

PAT: It is.

GLENN: -- should be doing this, but we are going to have to help people now.

PAT: It is exactly upside down.

GLENN: Yes. Remember the inverted pyramid that I showed you before?

PAT: Yeah. Yes.

GLENN: I showed you -- I mean, that was part of the American Revival was the

inverted pyramid that they have inverted. They have made God almost nonexistent,

where that was the base of the pyramid before. Now government is the base.

Government used to be the point of the pyramid. Now it's the base and God used

to be the base and now it's the point. It's the smallest part.

PAT: It's incredible that this is everything, society's been completely turned

on its head.

GLENN: Upside down. Of course it has. Did you guys -- go ahead.

PAT: If you look at private donations, at individual donors, it is like ten

times what governments get.

GLENN: Of course it is.

PAT: Americans at least. I can't speak for the other countries because they are

not nearly as generous as Americans are. But Americans give about ten times the

aid.

GLENN: Look, this is not about charity. Understand that. The government, we all

think that it is really, really incompetent. No, it's not. It's not incompetent.

It is good at what it is actually trying to do and that is take the wealth from

the wealthy and give it to the poor. And give it to their own special interests

and their cronies. That's what this system is.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: It is all on the -- the charitable thing is a front.

PAT: Absolutely.

STU: I would not say they are good at redistributing the wealth from the rich to

the poor even. I mean, they just give it, you're right, to the special interests

and things like that.

PAT: Yes.

STU: And you look at Elton here, here's a guy who's -- this is coming from I

think a good place. The sentiment here is good. Did he say, "I don't believe

that the government is working and I'm going to step in on my own."

GLENN: Yes.

STU: But he has the idea, as you said, Glenn, the pyramid is completely upside

down.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: And he doesn't even realize it.

 

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

Watch the video below to hear more from Ami Horowitz:

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.
