GLENN: Speaking of Michelle Obama, Michelle Obama came down from the second

story where she was eating pea soup for lunch and she came down and she wants

to, I don't know, put carrots in front of us. She's -- she gave a statement

about how we cannot leave it up to the parents because childhood obesity isn't

just a public health threat, it's not an economic threat. It's a national

security threat as well. (Sniffing).

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Here she is.

MICHELLE OBAMA: Let's be clear. These folks don't just support this bill as

leaders and as professionals but as parents as well. And we know that ensuring

that kids eat right and stay active is ultimately the responsibility of parents

more than anyone else. And everywhere I go, fortunately I meet parents who are

working very hard to make sure that their kids are healthy, they are doing

things like cutting down on desserts and trying to increase fruits and

vegetables. They are trying to switch their kids to kind of healthy habits that

will stay with them for a lifetime.

PAT: Making progress, mmm-hmmm.

MICHELLE OBAMA: But when our kids spend so much of their time each day in school

and when many kids get up to half their daily calories from school meals.

GLENN: Oh, my.

MICHELLE OBAMA: It's clear that we as a nation have a responsibility to meet as

well.

GLENN: We do.

MICHELLE OBAMA: We can't just leave it up to the parents.



Michelle Obama: Child Obesity a ‘National Security Threat’

GLENN: We can't just leave it up to the parents.

PAT: We can't just leave it up to the parents. You know, I love that. She's done

that several times now. Yes, it's the parents' responsibility. I'm sorry, we

have to do this anyway. Yes, it's the parents' responsibility, but we can't

leave it up to the parents.

STU: We know the government, when we try to do stuff through the government, it

doesn't work.

PAT: It doesn't work. There's no evidence that it works. And yet we're doing it

anyway.

STU: We're doing it anyway.

PAT: I -- what? And she's -- how many times has she done this? We've got several

of those sound bites.

GLENN: Why do you hate children? Why do you hate children so much?

PAT: I think because I have six of them and they irritate me in my own home.

GLENN: Really?

PAT: Yeah, it's spread out by --

GLENN: See, we cannot leave Pat.

STU: No.

GLENN: Can he want leave the parenting of Pat's children up to Pat.

PAT: No, you can't.

GLENN: It's not going to end well.

PAT: No.

STU: He will probably serve his kids Christmas cookies.

PAT: Look at how fat my kids are. Look at the obesity.

GLENN: Okay, they're not fat. You are but they're not.

PAT: Right, exactly.

GLENN: Because you know why? Because you -- the only thing left in the

refrigerator after you're done are the carrots.

PAT: The crumb. The crumb that's even too small for a mouse.

GLENN: Here, have a carrot, kid.

 

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."
