Glenn Beck: The Revolution Is Now

GLENN BECK, HOST: Hello, America.

Boy, I've had a lot -- I've had a -- I've had an amazing, I think, 48

hours. I've learned so much in the last 48 hours. We're doing an awful

lot of research right now and I'm going to try to be as clear as I possibly


But I want you to listen. I want you to DVR this show right now and I

want you to burn it to DVD and I want you to share it. And please, please,

I ask you not to take anything I say as gospel. I ask you please to do

your own homework.

Everyone is arguing the wrong things on the WikiLeaks story.

Everybody is going back-and-forth, he should be arrested. He's a hero.

No, he's not. He's a traitor.

Think out of the box, please.

Tonight, I'm going to zoom out, I'm going to show you the big picture

because it is much, much deeper. WikiLeaks is huge, but it's only a piece

of the perfect storm and you must think out of the box. I'm going to show

you stuff tonight that we have shown you and we've laid out over the last

several months, actually the last two years, but, boy, it is all starting

to come together.

I don't know if you're feeling this, I don't know if you're seeing it.

I don't -- sometimes I just don't know. I don't know if this is making an

impact and you are doing your own homework. I think you are. I pray that

you are.

It is much deeper and there are things that I wouldn't have believed

any of this two years ago. But it's never just about one singular issue

with progressives and radicals and revolutionaries. The revolution has

begun -- I never thought I would say those words, but I understand that it

has today.

The people you're up against have buried themselves in our government

and they have been wearing masks for a long time, but they're about to take

those masks off and understand, they want control of every aspect of your

life because the world is about to change. And while they try to convince

you that it's not, it is and they know it is. They want to control every

aspect of life to make society more just, but from their perspective.

I showed you last night, I told you that if I were going to take over

the world, because that's what "Forbes" said that Soros said of me, that I

was going to start some dictatorship because you're too stupid -- two years

ago, as I was trying to figure out how far along are they, I put a list

together and this is just some of them. If I were going to take over the

United States, what would I need? What would I need to do?

Well, you would have to control the financial sector. They did it

with a financial bill. They control everything in the financial sector.

You'd have to control health care, who lives, who dies. You'd have to

control industry. That could be done through the financial sector, it can

be done through taxes and it can also be done through bailouts, just taking

them like GM.

You would need to control the military. This one is really tough

because the military is not going -- they protect and defend the

Constitution of the United States. Please, dear God, if you are listening

to me in any part of the world, and you are military, please, dear God,

please remember your oath to the Constitution of the United States because

this is the only piece they can't get.

Now, they can bleed them dry. They can tire them out.

Do you know that yesterday -- yesterday, they just passed a spending

budget? We have tons of money in it for new regulation. Who uses that

regulation? Cass Sunstein. If you've listen to this show ever, I've told

you he's the most dangerous man in America.

Tons of new money for new regulation. But do you know that we just

gave our military the smallest raise in the last 50 years? But all kinds

of new money for new federal employees and regulation -- but not the


That's how they're going to do it. Stress them, push them, stretch

them, and in history, they have done it before. Not in this country, but

others, by just not paying them.

Then you have to grow dependence. You have to get people dependent on

the government. Then you have to control the media and control food


Well, they've done this, this, this and not this, but they're working

on it. They're doing this. They just passed the food bill, for your

safety -- remember, everything is done for your safety. And now, the


Guys, I have talked to professors all around the world, two in

particular -- that this is what they do, they study revolutionaries.

They're not fans of mine. They've never even heard of me. They're egg


They don't watch television, neither of these guys do. I've been

consulting with them. You think -- there are talking heads on television

and there are people that get their information from other journalists, or

other -- this staff works tirelessly to figure out what is going on in this

world. We don't like what we found, but we found it, and both of these

experts on revolutions say, well, they got to have the media. The last

step will be the media.

Now, does anyone find the timing of the FCC net neutrality debate odd?

Noodle that.

While I check in with new words that we have now of Robert McChesney,

he is the founder of the group pushing for net neutrality -- listen to his

words. "No one thinks any longer that media reform is an issue to solve

after the revolution." So you know, this organization is wildly powerful

now in Washington.

"After the revolution, everyone understands that without media reform,

there will be no revolution. In that sense, it is similar to the labor

movement where the demand for free trade unions, hardly revolutionary in

its own right, is a necessary precondition to building a viable organized

left that can contest for power. Even if you do not get the revolution in

the United States, media reform, much like organized labor, can make a

nation more just and humane place for its own inhabitants and the peoples

of the world."

So, in other words, they'll take it even if they don't get the

revolution -- but revolution is what they're shooting for.

Because I'm adlibbing and I'm trying to use my faulty memory --

Tiffany, will you do me a favor? Check on this. I'm trying to remember

the PR person for the FCC, for -- what's his name, the head of the FCC,

used to work at Free Press. Julius Genachowski is the FCC person and I

believe his spokesperson is from this revolutionary.

Now, let me show you a new video. This is the latest from Van Jones

and I want you to notice the date on this. This happened last September.

Listen to what he's saying here.


VAN JONES, FORMER GREEN JOBS CZAR: We can't just leave the federal

government in the hands of our enemies and expect to go make a lot of

progress. So, even if we can't get everything done that we want to get

done out of D.C., we certainly can't let other people have the level of

control in D.C.

But also, you can see right now, .D.C. can't do much by itself. You

ought to have that bottom-up movement. And that's what's been missing is

that bottom-up sense of movement to get the best out of D.C. And what's

stopping that is the inside-out piece.

You know, we talk about power more than any other people -- every kind

of political, economic -- we talk about power all the time and are more

afraid of power than anybody I know. We talk about power, empowerment

this, empowerment that, we want power - we don't want no power. Because

when you have power, you become a real target. And there is a sense that

we're not healed from some historical traumas.

We've been trained not to have power. We've been trained to protest.

We've been trained to critique and to be mad at NASA (ph). We have not

been trained to grab the whip and put it down and run the plantation.

That's not what we've been trained to do.

So I would argue that it's the inside-out transformation that will

ignite the bottom-up transformation that will make the top-down

transformation work.


BECK: OK. Top-down, remember, put the radicals in; and the bottom-

up, get the revolutionaries to rise up. Grab the whip and run the


Now, here he talks about his time in the White House, which we brought

to an end. Watch.


JONES: People with my politics don't usually get let in the door.

So, and I got a chance to see behind the curtain. I was in the cockpit for

six months. I got a chance to see close up, very clearly the amount of

peril the country is in, the challenges that we're facing. I got a chance

to learn that nobody in Washington, D.C. has all the power that they want,

including the president, and that there are informal systems of power that

operate and they operate along racial and other lines, and we have to be

much more sophisticated.

See, we did everything right. We had six years of one party

authoritarian rule in this country, from 2000 to 2006 and the people in

this room, we did everything right. We got 60 votes in the Senate. We got

Speaker Pelosi, not some right wing Democrat, Speaker Pelosi, and Barack

Obama as the president.

We did everything right. So, standing flat-footed January 2009,

everything that we were taught to do we had done and has been successful.

And here we are less than 24 months later, and most people feel like the

hope bubble burst a long time ago because the other systems of power that

we were not taking seriously and they have to do with the media, they have

to do with the racial discourse in the media, and that's the next frontier.


BECK: OK. That's the next frontier. The power that they didn't take

into consideration is the media and the racists in the media. And that's

the next frontier -- take the media. Take the media. Take the power from

the mean, dumb racists.

And then you'll have McChesney. You can't have a revolution without

controlling the media. That's good advice because let's look at somebody

in the FCC, the diversity czar that we've been showing you for two years,

Mark Lloyd. What does he say?


MARK LLOYD, DIVERSITY CZAR: In Venezuela, with Chavez, is really an

incredible revolution -- a democratic revolution.


BECK: He goes on to say, it wouldn't have happened if he wouldn't

have seized the media, an incredible Democratic revolution.

And right at the beginning of p presidency, who did the president have

an accidental meeting with? Do you remember? Oh, yes, Chavez. Chavez.

And look, let's hold the book so everyone can see it. That's right.

What is the book? An anti-American book about us colonialists that

have been oppressing everyone.

Make no mistake, make no mistake: revolutionaries are at the top, and

the revolution has begun. The revolution is here, gang. It just hasn't

gotten hot and no one is looking for this stuff.

I find all of the timing in this all way too coincidental. The push

for net neutrality, the courts say you can't do it through -- the courts

say you can't do it, Congress say they don't want to do it. The president


Then Assange appears, and happens to be a revolutionary that wants

change. He's been invited to do speak where he needs two leftist women to

have consensual sex. They press charges on him for not using a condom, and

now, it forces him to release the time bomb.

Remember, I said look at the date on the Van Jones video? The date of

that comment was September 28th. He's saying the racist people in the

media and we have to take them down. That speech was given five days after

Soros met on this -- with the people on this program and told us to back

off, sent me a very clear message.

And one of the message was: global change is here. The new world is

here and you are either on board or you are not.

Shortly after, Soros starts openly funding progressive outlets that

boycott this show. Five days later, Van Jones gives that speech. That's

our next frontier.

Back to McChesney -- he says it's time to take the media just like the

unions. Now, yesterday, the government union, the American Federation of

State, County and Municipal Employees, AFSCME, has decided to boycott,

coincidentally, me, Rush and John Stossel.

This is a coordinated attack. This is like the fourth or fifth time

they're boycotting me and FOX News.

And all they have left is the media. They have everything else. Oh,

they control your food and how it's grown and everything -- financial

sector, health care industry. They don't have this one. They're working

on it. This one.

I ask you to please watch these shows and burn them to DVD. Go over

them and do your own homework, please. Burn them to DVD and share them

with your friends.

All of the information that we share is available to other

journalists, but they -- I don't know why they don't report on it. I've

given up trying to understand. I don't care anymore.

We are being divided -- and who do you think is going to stand? The

world is coming undone. I'm going to show you in just a couple of seconds

what's happened in London today. It's pretty frightening when you see it.

I think there were a couple of people even on my staff that went oh, my


In the end, China is the only real survivor. You are going to -- in

history, you will look back at this year, our children will, or our

grandchildren, and this year will be remembered as 1919, except we're

England and China is America. This is the year that you will read in

history books that the superpower torch was handed from us to China.

That's why real power like Soros can look at my guy and say, the ship has


The reason why you don't see this on TV is I think people are choosing

sides. They've been forced to choose sides. A lot of people that made

their decisions, they've made their decision already. They like this new

world order.

I don't. I happen to like this guy. I happen to believe in this

stuff. Well, this is corny now. Nobody even knows this stuff anymore.

I made my choice. I'm going down swinging. With peace and love in my

heart and this man on my lips, I'm going down swinging.

I've told you that you must preserve our history. You must preserve

our traditions. You must preserve our conversation.

As I said that today, I remembered one thing, Michelle Obama, during

the election --


MICHELLE OBAMA, U.S. FIRST LADY: Barack knows that we are going to

have to make sacrifices. We are going to have to change our conversation.

We're going to have to change our traditions, our history. We're going to

have to move to a different place.


BECK: She's right. To get where they want to go, you must change our

traditions. They must have you forget about our past. They were this

close. They must teach it all as negative in order to preserve the idea

that man was free.

In order to preserve the idea that man must be free, that man can be

decent enough to rule himself, you must preserve our traditions and our

history. And I'm begging you, please do it quickly. Please.

I'm going to show you some things tonight that are going to melt your

brain. You must walk lock step with God now, have peace in your hearts.

You must know what these people did and who this man -- this is the answer.

This man is the answer.

Their excuse will be violence. Do not be a part of it.

I'm going to show you this, at the end of the show tonight, I've told

you about this before. You must be worthy of this. You must know what it

is because it's the answer.

So, here we are again back to the media debating Assange. Is he a

hero or not? Radicals are talking about creating a more just world,

however through revolution and they need the media to accomplish this goal.

And coincidentally, the FCC now just happens to be at, of all times, using

the WikiLeaks news to justify government expanding their reach and

regulating the Internet through net neutrality. I told you these guys

don't plan weeks, even months ahead, they plan years ahead.

Net neutrality is not a response to WikiLeaks. I think it's the other

way around. They've had it in the cooker for quite some time. They just

hadn't created the right problem yet.

And the media seems to be a problem. You're a problem. They haven't

been able to nudge the bottom-up yet. But they're getting closer.

There are a ton of different factors at play here, but you have to

look at all the moving parts to this story to see where they're taking us.

And we will do that -- next.


BECK: We're talking tonight about WikiLeaks. But it is much larger

than WikiLeaks. We are talking about revolution. This is a fight for


I want to tell you now about "operation: payback." Anyone who came

out and attacked Julian Assange and WikiLeaks is now an enemy of this

growing state of chaos -- and that's what it is, a growing state of chaos.

Five thousand hacktivists are plotting revenge. They've already attacked

Sarah Palin, MasterCard, Visa. Their spokesman, his name is Cold Blood,

and he is 22 years old.

May I ask did anybody find it odd that for the first time in American

history, at least in my lifetime, the president did not reach out to older

Americans? That the left doesn't seem to care about older Americans and

the elderly vote? Why? Why? Because the future revolutionaries come from


Cold Blood says, quote, "We will fire at anything that tries to censor

WikiLeaks." Really? Adding that the group wanted to be a, quote, "force

for chaotic good."

May I ask you, how is chaos ever good? It's good, as I explain on the

show over the summer, if you want revolution. Chaos is good.

Did you see what happened in Great Britain today? I want to show you

this. I've never seen this before. OK. Here's -- here's the overhead.

Here are people down here attacking the prince's car.

Can you show me the pictures? Show me the pictures of the prince.

Here is the prince.

Now, this is an egg. You've seen that before, right? Here is an egg.

But look at their faces. Show the next picture, please.

OK, you don't have -- there's another picture. Here's the damage to

the car. This is a bullet proof car. Look at the damage to the car.

They're not messing around. We're talking about revolutionaries, a

force for chaotic good. Chaos is good if -- if you're trying to create


Now, let's take a look at the people who are supporting Julian Assange

and WikiLeaks, the force for chaotic good. You have the Socialist

Alliance. You have the World Socialist Web Site, the ISO, International

Socialist Organization, Socialist Party USA,

Oh, by the way, he also, along with Arianna Huffington, and the

Progressive Democrats of America, he also spoke at Berkeley, California,

University of -- Berkeley and the Front Line Club in London. This event

was sponsored by none other than George Soros' Open Society Institute.

Starting to connect, isn't it? Many of the groups are the people

associated with the One Nation rally, also support Assange, and Private

Bradley Manning. Who are they? International ANSWER, Code Pink, Peace and

Freedom, Solidarity, the Progressive Democrats of America, U.S. Peace

Council, Veterans for Peace, the War Resistors League.

Who is this guy? This, we should mention Wade Rathke, because he says

we are illegally suppressing WikiLeaks. Wade, by the way, is with, of

course, ACORN. I always get the two brothers mixed up because he's with


His other brother, Dale, he used to be with ACORN until he was

embezzling from ACORN and they almost threw him in jail and tried him and

everything else, but he was bailed out by the Tides Foundation, which gets

a lot of their funding from George Soros.

Vladimir Putin -- Vladimir Putin now says the West is hypocritical in

its criticism of Russia's record on democracy now.

Most of these groups are supporting Assange because he helps achieve

what they want, chaos and revolution, an end to the republic. You heard it

from the hacker, chaos is good. You heard it from Assange himself, but

they're too busy giving him awards and accolades to show you this. It's

not about transparency.

Quote, "It is not our goal to achieve a more transparent society. It

is our goal to achieve a more just society" -- you ready -- if more -- if

leaks cause the U.S. officials to, quote, "lock down eternally --

internally and to balkanize" they will, quote, "cease to be as efficient as

they were."

You got it? They don't want transparency. They want enough chaos to

have us, quote, "lock down internally." It's not about a more just world,

is it? No, it's about less communication, not more communication.

We've got like three shows to do tonight. I am so far behind. More

in a minute.



BECK: Hello, America.

I am -- we're running about -- we've never run this late on the show

before. We have so much information to share with you. We're trying to

get the information out as fast as we can and we're going to try to see if

we can work something out at the end of the show. Don't miss a second of

tonight's show and we may take you over to the Internet. Or I don't know

what we're going to do yet while we still can.

But we have an awful lot to share with you. We're talking about

WikiLeaks, but the larger issue and that is revolution. If you missed the

first half of the show, please go back and watch the first half of the


You're being presented with a false choice. Number one, WikiLeaks,

keep the leaks coming and you get -- what did he say? Chaos for good. OK.

So, you can't keep it coming.

But the other option is shut it down, shut it down, shut them down,

shut them down, round them up, put them in jail. Some of the people who

are calling to shut down Assange and WikiLeaks, first and foremost, Eric


This one is unbelievable to me. United States Justice Department

launched an investigation immediately, one day after WikiLeaks began

releasing its latest batch of documents, not during the summer, but this


Here is the guy that said this about Americans.


ERIC HOLDER, ATTORNEY GENERAL: Though this nation has proudly thought

of itself as a ethnic melting pot, in things racial, we have always been

and we, I believe, continue to be in too many ways essentially a nation of



BECK: Nation of cowards. Eric Holder, a guy who won't prosecute a

slam dunk voter intimidation case, the most bravery he's been able to

muster is shutting down illegal Prada sites, but he lifts into action on

WikiLeaks, at the right time, not the first time, now.

Other politicians have lined up to hammer WikiLeaks. There they are.

Senator McConnell, Senator McCaskill who said I believe recently, she's a

progressive Democrat -- that we should get the pitchforks out.

You have Senator Lieberman, Mike Huckabee, Senator Feinstein. You

have Michael Chertoff, former secretary of homeland security. Remember the

guy who was invested in those scanners that you're now using. Charles

"Cully" Stimson, senior legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation, of all


Representative King, Hoekstra, Senator Christopher Bond, Sarah Palin.

Bill Kristol said, "Why we can't act forcefully against WikiLeaks?

Why we can't use our assets to harass and neutralize Julian Assange and his

collaborators, wherever they are?"

Mary Matalin, who I love, called him a terrorist. Sarah Palin, we

should go after him like a terrorist.

What's happening? What's happening? Honestly, some of these people

are -- some of these people are progressives. Some of these people I don't

think have put everything together, world politicians.

I've never said these words except as a joke, but I mean them now with

everything in me: my fellow Americans, please listen to me. The world has

changed. It has changed. It is no longer in the box that it always has

been. What used to apply no longer does.

And if you don't start thinking out of the box soon, the top will come

down on top. You must think out of the box. You cannot look at today's

problems and try to understand them or solve them in the ways we always

have. You must understand, you are in a revolution, a global revolution

whether you like it or not and the rules of the games have changed.

Many politicians are good-hearted people, but they don't understand

simple things like who Cass Sunstein. The game has changed.

China is the world superpower now. And many people in the world at

the top level are grabbing for the scraps at the table. Who can run the

rest of the world or who can run this area and give the service and the

energy and everything else to China?

Revolutionaries have plotted our demise for a very long time. Do not

play the game they were expecting you to play. They're expecting you to

continue to think in the box. Why do you think they've tried so hard to

get us off the air?

Some day I hope to be able to tell you all that I have experienced --

they know we have the answer. They know. And here it is. You must not

move as they expect you to move. They are playing three dimensional chess.

They are expect -- you remember what they kept saying about, from the

day he got in? I think it was Claire McCaskill in Missouri that had

homeland security in Missouri say the Tea Party people are violent. They

expected you to be violent and you weren't -- 8.28 threw them for a loop.

Why do you think they worked so hard to poke and to poke and to poke.

They need you to be violent. Well, if you won't do it, they'll get their

minions to do it.

Look, have you ever seen a bullet proof car? How was it the prince

and Camilla got their bulletproof car to drive into a crowd of people

screaming for revolution? It's a trap.

WikiLeaks is just such an easy one to point out. They've set a trap

for you. Option number one, the leaks continue. Chaos. We cannot do


Option number two: people cry out to shut down WikiLeaks and they do

by shutting down the Internet and other communication with one another.

It is bottom-up, top-down. Bottom-up, must rise up and turn us inside

out and the top will come down. You lose either way.

Look, I don't know where you are in the stage of grief, but you must

get to acceptance quickly. Life is going to change in America.

As we know America, it is over. It's only a matter of time before it

all plays out. But that doesn't mean it has to be worse, that it has to be

about oppression.

OK, so we don't have the stuff we have. Is the stuff you have really

making your life any better? It's not about the stuff. Remember what we

learned on 9/11. It's not about the stuff, damn it!

It's about the people. It's about our families and it's about

freedom. You must think out of the box.

They feed on fear and violence. There's one thing I will never do and

that's called progressive stupid. Their ideas on how to run government and

enslave people are stupid, but they are not.

The trap that has been created here, we lose either way, they think --

they think -- unless you do the most dangerous thing, the one thing they're

not expecting you to do.

Back in a minute.


BECK: I've done too much blabbing today and we're running very late

on the show. So, the show is going to continue at

right 6:00 p.m. I'm not going to leave the studio. The network will move

and then ask you to join me online for just a few more minutes here.

I want to show you one more thing. At the top of the program, we

showed you Robert McChesney, founder of Free Press, the PR of Free Press is

now the spokesperson for the head of the FCC. He said revolution would not

happen without media reform.

Now, here's Josh Silver, he's another founder of Free Press, the

champions for net neutrality and how we need to protect the American

people. Watch.


JOSH SILVER, FREE PRESS: The question is, should companies or the

government be allowed to censor and block content that's on the Web at

will, or do they need to follow constitutional law? And so, that's really

at the end of the day -- what's the question here -- and whether there

should be stronger laws that enable the Federal Communications Commission

to protect WikiLeaks and other transparency entities so that their content

cannot be blocked.


BECK: This is not about principle here for them. This is not about

principle. They boxed us in. Remember Arianna Huffington? As I just

showed you -- she's supporting Assange. For what? He's exposing the truth

about government.

He's doing basically what we do, except we're not breaking any laws.

We're not sharing secrets. Every day at 5:00 o'clock, on this show, that's

what we do. We express our point of view and what is Arianna say about us?



need to really pay attention to with Glenn Beck. We cannot just dismiss

him, because the truth of the matter is that there is a good reason why we

have an exemption to the free speech protected by the First Amendment when

we say you cannot shout fire in a crowded theater.


BECK: OK. I don't have -- there is an exemption for me, but the same

people would like to protect or give an award to the guy not shouting fire,

but shouting revolution, shouting chaos.

The difference here is I'm not helping them. It's not about principle

or free speech. I will protect the free speech of anybody over at MSNBC.

I will stand shoulder to shoulder with them.

But I expose their plan here, the revolutionaries. The answer is not

that hard, though. It is for them because it's about principles -- honor,

merit, and peace.

I'll show you the answer next.


BECK: You know, if you ever feel like oh, there's no hope or

anything, I want you to really understand the story of the American

Revolution. They were so certain in the British House of Lords that the

Earl of Sandwich got up and talked about the American revolutionaries and

many of them did this.

I'm going to give you this real quick quote. He said, "I wish instead

of 40,000 or 50,000 of these brave fellows, they would produce in the field

at least 200,000. The more the better, the easier it would be to conquest.

Believe me, my lords, the very sound of the cannon will carry them off as

fast as their feet could carry them."

Well, he was wrong, wasn't he? Why? Why? Because this man knew --

he wasn't a good general at first. He knew.

He talked about the only way to beat the British was to be people of

merit and honor. This was the inspiration for the Purple Heart and this

was the inspiration for 8.28. This was the original badge of merit given

by George Washington. He knew the only way you could defeat the most

powerful army on earth were to praise God and to be clean and virtuous in

your own life and to know the principles.

Please, I beg you. Take this, give it to your kids, give it to your

grandkids, give it to everybody you know. Memorize this. This is -- this

is who he was. This is who he was.

These are the principles of what we have in this country. Please read

them and be a person of merit. He will solve the problem.


BECK: Who -- on tomorrow's program, a man who I think is a George

Washington, you will see struggle, merit, honor, liberating strife. Make

sure you see tomorrow's program.

And this show now continues at Go there now.

More you need to know, we didn't have time in the show.

From New York -- good night, America.

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."
