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?


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


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 conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

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."
