GLENN: A small Pennsylvania town has removed a nativity scene from its

borough building after a resident complained that the scene is offensive to

non-Christians. How many times have you little baby Jesus and thought to

yourself (screaming)? All the time.

PAT: Every time it scares me. It offends me.

GLENN: Little babies, man.

PAT: Swallowed my tongue one time.

GLENN: Did you really?

PAT: When I was walking by a nativity scene.

GLENN: Town leaders say they don't like to remove it, but they are legal

obligated now.

PAT: I would like to ask these town leaders in what way?

GLENN: Well

PAT: How does that legally obligate you to remove it?

GLENN: Because they this person I'm not going to give you the name because it's

not important.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Said that it was disrespectful to citizens who aren't Christians.

PAT: So.

GLENN: And shouldn't be in a government building.

PAT: What's your point?

GLENN: It's highly disrespectful to them.

PAT: How? In what way? We're not asking you to

GLENN: To those that are not Christians, for it to be displayed in a government

building.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: It's a government that's supposed to represent all of its citizens.

PAT: It does.

GLENN: Not just the majority.

PAT: It does, just because we put out this nativity scene doesn't mean we

represent all people.

GLENN: No. You're wrong. It's been in the building for 57 years. Now they're

removing it. Hasn't it been there long enough?

PAT: No, no. It hasn't. I would like to know how it's disrespectful to anybody

to put up a nativity scene.

GLENN: Well, of course, the Knights of Columbus.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: You know, religious people.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: They say we think you should show tolerance to one another. It's

disrespectful to my rights, too, to

PAT: I think they're saying it's disrespectful to have it taken down.

GLENN: Yeah. That's what

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Was it that hard to follow?

PAT: No.

GLENN: Do you want me to do the math? I was just quoting. I'm sorry.

PAT: All right. You weren't quoting very well, but

GLENN: I'm reading it right here. I think we have to show tolerance to another

one. It's disrespectful to my rights, too.

PAT: You screwed it up with again.

GLENN: It's disrespectful to my rights, too.

PAT: You got it that time. (Applause.) You got it. That was good.

GLENN: Are you clapping, Stu? You're clapping?

PAT: He was. He did. I heard him. I heard him.

GLENN: Yeah. You you see what I got for Christmas. I'm putting the clapper on

your microphone.

STU: That's a weird solution.

GLENN: Yeah. That's right. Every time you clap, it will just shut your

microphone down. You go ahead and clap all you want.

PAT: Remember the clapper? That was a great device.

GLENN: I personally like the Christmas scene

STU: He didn't want to talk about the clapper at all.

PAT: No. He didn't want to.

PAT AND STU: Clap on, clap off, clap on, clap off, the clapper.

 

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety." Children have been brainwashed with racist critical race theory. And yet, Democrats want to use California as the test model for the entire country. Your state and your town are next. They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

Dave Rubin, host of BlazeTV's "The Rubin Report," moved to Los Angeles about a decade ago. In that time, he's watched it descend into absolute chaos. While most of his news and comedy friends have fled, Dave tells Glenn Beck why he's riding it out and how the rest of the country must save itself from progressive policies and "evil" governors like Gavin Newsom — or else the great American experiment will be over.

Just like the left did in Georgia, Democrats and the media are now insisting that Texas' new proposed voting laws are a racist threat to democracy. But this time, instead of actually letting democracy play out through a vote, Democrats in the state legislature walked out and stopped the democratic process.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere take a look at the voting bill — which Democrats say is racist because it keeps early voting polls closed on Sundays until 1 o'clock to allow for poll workers to attend church — and explain why they believe the backlash is just another ridiculous display of hypocrisy from the left.

Ever since he was in high school, Rishi Sharma has dedicated his life to making sure that the stories of our World War II veterans are never forgotten. He's spent countless hours interviewing these men and documenting their firsthand experiences on his YouTube channel, "Legends of WWII" — and the timing couldn't be any better.

Rishi joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to warn that "they don't teach World War II in school any more, and what they do cover is 'brainwashing' young Americans to "hate our country, to hate our veterans, and our way of life."

"I can honestly tell you they don't teach World War II in school anymore. What they do cover is how 'bad' the U.S. was," Rishi told Glenn.

"I mean, people are being brainwashed nowadays. The younger generations are being brainwashed to hate our country, to hate our veterans, and our way of life. It's not right, and I don't want to see it happen any further. That's why I'm recording these stories of what these veterans actually went through, the atrocities that they came across. Whoever has that footage, is going to be able to control the narrative."

Rishi went on to share some of the shocking accounts of what really went on during WWII, which he learned through interviewing more than 1,100 veterans, and the devastating results of anti-American propaganda both then and now.

Watch the video clip below for more details, because we need these firsthand accounts now more than ever to teach our kids the truth:
