CNN attacks Glenn

GLENN: That's interesting. We have the latest from Fareed Zakaria. Fareed Zakaria, so you know, is a guy on television, I think CNN, and he's got a show called GPS. I don't know what -- I think it's a travel show or something. And Fareed is --

PAT: It might as well be.

STU: It would get more ratings.

PAT: It would.

GLENN: Fareed Zakaria has taken me on. Do we have the audio?

PAT: Yeah, we do.

GLENN: This is from something that I said in an offhanded comment last week.

PAT: No. Two -- I think it's two weeks ago.

STU: I believe it was last week.

PAT: Oh, it was?

STU: Potentially Monday.

GLENN: So, it was just an offhanded comment and this is -- everybody is focusing on one thing on this comment and here it is.

ZAKARIA: There are 1.57 billion Muslims worldwide. Take 10% of those Muslims and you get 157 million. That's how many Muslim terrorists Glenn Beck is suggesting there are in the world, 157 million.

STU: Million.

PAT: 10 percent of --

ZAKARIA: -- why this wasn't receiving any media coverage.

PAT: No, he didn't.

(Crosstalk.)

STU: By the way, just when we're talking, because -- the reason why people aren't covering this is because it's total nonsense. Now, I know with 100% certainty that he knows, Fareed Zakaria knows that what he just said is completely a lie. He knows it's not based on nonsense. He knows the poll it's based on. He's seen the blog because he shows it later on. He knows exactly what that claim is based on.

PAT: No, we actually looked at our response to it and still offered this nonsense?

STU: Yeah. He went into it. His point was that your use of the -- he said I got you off on a technicality because I used the dictionary definition of the word. Now, when the dictionary starts becoming technicality, I don't know -- I mean, we're not 2 plus 2 equals 5, are we not?

GLENN: May I? It's the definition of is. We're talking about the definition of terrorist.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Now, here's his point. We're talking about 10% of the population and this is, by the way, a low number to many of -- to -- according to -- give me the name of this research report, because it's the one that is used by the Huffington Post and --

PAT: World public opinion.

GLENN: Yeah. This is a very well-known and well established -- this isn't some crazy --

STU: No.

PAT: Some right wing poll.

GLENN: Yeah. It's not some right wing poll. This is a very stable poll and this is the one everyone uses when they're talking about terror and everything else and the numbers are much greater than 10%.

STU: If you talk about -- I was defining terrorism in many ways. If you talk about specifically supporting attacks against civilians in the United States, it ranges from 4 to 56, I think it is.

GLENN: 4 to 56% and that is --

PAT: Depending on what country you live in

STU: 10 to -- sorry. It's 10 to 39. 4 to 56 is another poll, 10 to 39%. Now, you can get higher than 10, obviously. There are some countries, there are few that you can get lower than for hard core support and not just I support it sometimes when they kill innocent civilians in the United States but I mean the bottom line is there's blatant -- higher than what you stilled all across the Muslim world.

GLENN: What he's trying to say is there is a difference between someone who actually does it and someone who actually supports it.

STU: That's true.

GLENN: Well --

STU: There's a difference.

GLENN: There is a difference.

STU: His thought is there is only -- get this -- a paltry 11,000 terror strikes last year.

STU: Only.

PAT: 11,000. And then he goes through this ridiculous exercise of multiplying that by 100 people per -- and that only adds up to 1.1 million.

GLENN: It doesn't --

STU: Only.

PAT: Only.

GLENN: Only 1.1 million. It only took 18 to bring down the World Trade Center and that was one of the many points. I doesn't matter -- I mean, the numbers are overwhelming. It only takes 18, but for him to go on this is completely disingenuous.

STU: Completely.

GLENN: If I said to Fareed Zakaria, Fareed, I don't -- I'm not going to kill you but I support the people who do want to kill you, am I a problem, Fareed?

STU: Right.

GLENN: Yes, yes. I would be a problem. If you said to somebody, Hey, Glenn, I don't -- I'm not going to kill you myself, but, man, I am all in with -- I don't have a problem with anyone wanting to take bare hands and just snap your neck. Excuse me?

STU: Yeah. I'm sure he would be immediately on the air for defending you for those comments.

GLENN: Oh of course, of course. No, Glenn's not making threats. Glenn's not any trouble. I actively support, I vocally support, yeah, I think he should die. I think he should be killed. That's ridiculous.

STU: And, again, for those who have missed the previous segment on this, the definition of terrorist is someone who uses or advocates terrorism.

GLENN: That is the definition. That is the dictionary definition No. 1.

STU: Yeah, No. 1, the first one. And it's interesting dust because --

PAT: You had to look clear down to 1 to get that? What a stretch

STU: Thank you.

PAT: It's ridiculous. All of the way to 1?

GLENN: Don't you see what we're doing? Now, we're arguing about this which is nonsense. It doesn't matter how many there are. It doesn't matter. There's enough. More than 1.1 million, that's enough. That's enough. 1.1 million is enough to wipe us off the face of the earth. So, it doesn't matter what the number is and it does matter on how many people will stand up against it and vocally say no, enough is enough. That's the number that we should be talking about.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: In the meantime, we can't even as a government -- we can't even say that there is terror. We have now the Department of Homeland Security going into Wal-Mart with a video and Wal-Mart's statement is that they are going to, they are the first of many retailers that are partnering with the Department of Homeland Security. Now I have no problem if you want to say, Hey, if you see something, say something, but this is an administration that doesn't even think that terrorism is real. And why -- why is Wal-Mart partnering with the Department of Homeland Security? Wal-Mart says, well, we're trying to keep our cities safe. I understand that and I salute them for that and if you see something, say something. But what does that have to do something with if you see something in the store? What do you mean? Shoplifting? Shoplifting is -- that's a Department of Homeland Security thing? What does that mean? That's not a Federal crime. I'm sorry, but it just -- something is wrong here. Now, maybe Wal-Mart is just -- and I'm sure this is what it is, I mean, I met the people at Wal-Mart. I like the people at Wal-Mart, but I look at this Wal-Mart story and I think it is just this, most likely: Department of Homeland Security calls up and says, do you know what? Let me do it look the Department of Homeland Security does it right now, do you know what would be really nice, huh? You play a little video at the checkout, huh? I'm just saying it would be a good thing. That's all I'm saying. All I'm saying is you want to do that, huh? You want to do that now, Wal-Mart, or are you going to do that later? We can do this two ways. I've got a cannoli. We'll throw it in the car. Do you know what I'm saying? Take you for a little spin. Personally I think that was -- that's what happened and they just said, Hey, we've got a little video. Why don't you put it on the cash registers, huh? And Wal-Mart was, like, you know, that's fine. We'll just put that on the -- because it's no big deal. That's right. It's no big deal. I just think that it is opening the door to the Department of Homeland Security and I think it's a little creepy myself, 1984ish. I think it's a little creepy, but I don't necessarily think there's anything nefarious there, but I was a little disturbed -- that's just one of the first stories, do you know what I'm saying? Some of the first retailers that are going to be helping out Department of Homeland Security. Yeah. I'm a little uncomfortable with that. Leave the guns. Take the cannoli.

PAT: I'm a little uncomfortable with the accent.

STU: Yeah. I was going to say the same thing. I couldn't think of an appropriate word to describe what it was.

PAT: I guess it was an attempt at an accent, but --

STU: No.

PAT: No. Maybe Swedish?

STU: It could have been Swedish.

PAT: I'm not sure.

GLENN: Listen to what I'm saying. That's all I'm saying. Ya?

PAT: Early construction workers, 18th century? I don't know. I don't know.

STU: Not a complete loss.

GLENN: You take the holiday stolen.

PAT: It continues. It continues.

(Crosstalk.)

STU: It's called blow back. It's called blow back.

GLENN: That's what it is. That's what it is.

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."
