Typical Liberal calls Glenn

GLENN: No, Linda, that's hate mongering. You and I know it. That's hate mongering. Thanks for your call.


 


 Kathy, you're on the Glenn Beck program.


 


 CALLER: Oh, good morning to you.


 


 GLENN: How are you?


 


 CALLER: I respectfully disagree with most of your policies and what you say on the air, especially in the last week. Listen.


 


 GLENN: Okay.


 


 CALLER: Let's -- I hope you don't mind.


 


 GLENN: I don't mind. It's America.


 


 CALLER: Let's refer to the war of the trillion on this war in Iraq which really didn't have to happen at all. You know, when people in this country need healthcare, they need healthcare and if they don't get it, they go on disability and more money is taken from people. And I want to tell you, if we can spend a trillion dollars on war, we can spend trillion dollars on our own people.


 


 GLENN: Why is government -- wait. Why is more money taken away from people? It's just government healthcare. Government just has that money.


 


 CALLER: Excuse me?


 


 GLENN: You said disability, people go on disability, then even more money.


 


 CALLER: Healthcare, you'll go on disability because your situation will get worse.


 


 GLENN: Kathy, do you read -- you're a liberal?


 


 CALLER: I'm not completely a liberal but I can tell you there's a lot of things that I believe Hillary Clinton is very passionate about and so am I.


 


 GLENN: I'm just wondering, do you read the New York Times?


 


 CALLER: No, I don't. I'm sorry.


 


 GLENN: You don't?


 


 CALLER: I'm not even in New York.


 


 GLENN: People read the New York Times in other cities. You should read it. I think it was last Sunday. May I -- may I? May I? May I?


 


 CALLER: Yes.


 


 GLENN: I allowed you to speak. Thank you. You should read the New York Times. You can go online. You can find the story. Stu, I don't know if you have it or if I brought it in for television. It was a front page story on universal healthcare from the New York Times and what they're having a problem with right now is the story was that there are a lot of people that have the ability to buy healthcare and choose not to. Then they had a story of a woman who is in, I think she was 23 years old and she, you know, had the money to buy healthcare but she decided to buy new furniture and to buy some other things in her house, et cetera, et cetera. She got sick and now we're paying for it.


 


 CALLER: All right.


 


 GLENN: She is --


 


 CALLER: We're talking about one person here that you're quoting.


 


 GLENN: No.


 


 CALLER: I'm talking about the trillions of people out there.


 


 GLENN: Trillions?


 


 CALLER: That doesn't have the money for healthcare and I was one of them and I was working three jobs, bringing up two children.


 


 GLENN: Trillions?


 


 CALLER: Excuse me, Glenn. If you haven't lived it, you haven't walked in those shoes, you don't know it.


 


 GLENN: That is universal healthcare if it's going to cover trillions of people that are uncovered. The actual number --


 


 CALLER: We spend trillions of dollars in Iraq to take care of the other country and make sure they go Democratic. Let's take care of our own country. Let's take care of our economy. We make nothing here anymore.


 


 GLENN: Okay, I don't know what that has to do with healthcare. The actual number --


 


 CALLER: It has a lot to do with healthcare. If you don't have the money, you don't have the jobs, you don't have healthcare.


 


 GLENN: We're the ones who make all the drugs because we're not -- we don't have universal healthcare, we're not socialized in our medicine. That's the reason why people, dictators and everything else come here to have medicine. We have the best access to medicine in the world because of that. I'll agree with you on spending but then you can't give the biggest spending program ever created on top of it and say we need universal healthcare. By the way, just want to give you the numbers. The number is 47 million uninsured Americans. That's the actual number that everybody wants to throw around. However when you get down to it, when you take out those people who are 20, have the money and just want to spend it elsewhere on buying other things, don't think that they're -- because they're gamblers, they think to themselves, I'm not going to get sick, I'm not going to spend the money on healthcare, when you do that, when you also take out the people who are in between jobs, who are qualified for COBRA, who are going -- the average person is about six months away from having health insurance because they're in between jobs or something like that. When you take out that, the actual number of uninsured in this country is about 14 million people. Now, I know that's -- and I'm sorry. Stu is telling me it's actually much less than that.


 


 STU: It depends what categories you are taking out. You also have to take out, I believe, illegal aliens.


 


 GLENN: Let's just say it's 15 million people.


 


 STU: I would say it's about half that.


 


 GLENN: Whatever. That's still a long way from trillions of people. And we can cover 14 million or 8 million, we're talking about covering 300 million.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.
