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.

 

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Left's latest move — canceling six Dr. Seuss books due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity. And now, school districts are jumping on board after President Joe Biden seems to have dropped Dr. Seuss from the White House's annual "Read Across America Day" proclamation.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn argued that deleting books is the perfect example of fascism, and asked when we as a country will finally realize it.

"They are banning Dr. Seuss books. How much more do you need to see before all of America wakes up? ... This is fascism!" Glenn said. "We don't destroy books. What is wrong with us, America?"
