Glenn: 1 888 727 BECK. Russ, WLVI, New Haven.

Caller: Hey, Glenn, I've been an Insider. I'm black, by the way, just so you know, not African American, black. I couldn't disagree with you more.

Glenn: All right.

Caller: Let me tell you why. I don't think the times are somewhat dangerous, but it's not the time to accept the premise that these people cut forth. The most offensive thing that you did to me was when you interviewed Al Sharpton. As a black person that's offensive to have this idiot up there representing us. These are the type of people that put forth these notions that the media accepts. I would like you to have somebody that you interviewed for a full hour or you may have Walter Williams. This is how you combat some of this political incorrectness that you see going on out there.

Glenn: Russ, what do you think I what do you think I did with Chris Gardener?

Caller: I know what you did. He said he didn't like politicians, pimps, or prostitutes, do you think black people sit around listening to that? That preacher is more offensive. He's up there doing gyrations.

Glenn: Hey, Russ, Russ, do you think that I am playing this because I'm saying listen to the black preacher?

Caller: No, no.

Glenn: I'm saying listen to the words and why am I asking America to listen to the words?

Caller: Well, let me tell you why. I understand what you're saying, but here's the thing. You have to put it into context, the way I look at it. What do you expect? Do you think the "New York Times" is going to fix this problem? They want America to think that all black people are sitting around on the words of some Al Sharpton.

Glenn: Excuse me, Russ. Excuse me, Russ. This is the preacher that gave the name audacity of hope to Barack Obama. Barack Obama is a guy who sits in this man's pew every Sunday for 20 years. My question is not about black and white. My question, Russ, is do you sit there as a black man or a white man and listen to this kind of stuff for 20 years and say, well, I just dismiss it? Do you think you could dismiss this kind of poison for 20 years and the follow up question is: Why is this not in the media until now? Why has this been nowhere until now?

Caller: Here's the thing, though. Sean Hannity has been talking about this guy for the longest.

Glenn: I've been talking about this guy for the longest time, Russ. I'm talking about the main stream media.

Caller: Here's the point. I completely agree. If you think the main stream media is going to come to the aid, I told you when I first called in, they want they want this type of they want everybody to think that black people, we're just talking about black people at this point, want to go along and deal with this, that you can't criticize them. Here's the point. You can't go along. You have to ignore them and stick to the issues. If somebody calls you a racist, you move forward, just like Rush Limbaugh. He's not a racist. He stuck to his guns you.

Glenn: Hang on just a second, Sean Hannity is not going to change his opinion. Rush Limbaugh is not going to change his opinion. We're not going to change our opinion because we're going to be called a racist. Give me a T shirt that says it. I've been called it you have. I think I should get a T shirt. I'm also a racist and a Nazi. So, please don't start with the names and don't worry about that. What I'm asking you is why is it that I'm just using church to church, why is it I was on Good Morning America and I was I still have grill marks on my butt for, so, tell me and I it was set up that I was not going to talk about this. I will talk about Mitt Romney. I'll talk about presidential politics. I'll talk about the role of presidential politics, but I am not the Mormon spokesman. You want to talk to somebody about the Mormon church, go ask one of the leaders of the Mormon church. They're far more qualified to ask about their theology, but they didn't want to do that. They didn't want to do that. Nobody wanted to do that. All they want to do is throw Mitt Romney underneath the bus and use religion because it's politically correct to be able to do that. Now we're in a situation where you can't even say the man's middle name.

Caller: Glenn, here's the thing. Yes, you can say his middle name. You don't

Glenn:

Glenn: Russ, Russ, you are a black man.

Caller: That's right.

Glenn: Do you know what? Let me tell you something: For the first time in my life, I can tell a black man, you cannot relate. You have no idea what you're talking about.

Caller: Okay. Okay. Well, fine. How about this? Condoleezza Rice. I'm a black conservative. I can't relate? That's nonsense. You know, when I walk into a room are you telling me I can't relate?

Glenn: You're telling me let me tell you something, Russ. You can relate on a small level. How's that one? How about for turning the tables completely around, you can relate on a small level. Let me tell you, by the end of this election or at least by the end of if this man becomes President, the lives of conservatives who are not racist, who are not racist, who would vote for Condoleezza Rice in a heartbeat, will be absolutely destroyed because they disagree with politics and I, again, am going to give Barack Obama the benefit of the doubt because he seems to be a reasonable man. I have not seen him ever play the race card, but believe me, with the special interests that are involved on both sides, special interests that are involved, the money that's to be made, the programs that are going to be pushed through, there's going to be too many people that just will not accept a loss on any cost and someone, a 527, will destroy anyone that stops progress.

Caller: Here's my point. Why can't we have a 527 that's just as strong. That's like going into a war and saying they have a bigger weapon. So, we need to succumb to that. I've been dealing with this kind of nonsense and I'm telling you as a black man you want to talk about not relating. When you see a pimp on TV speaking about black issues and the majority of America think that represents you, that's the most offensive thing and you talk about the man. Let me tell you something. Al Sharpton is just as offensive as this preacher. We give these type of people credence.

Glenn: Russ, appreciate your phone call. Appreciate you listening to the program. I have to tell you. My only question, my only question is could you, white, black, yellow, purple, albino let me make sure I don't leave anybody else out. Who else? Swedes, members of the Abba, Anna Mae, could you listen to a preacher every Sunday and be filled with hope? Could you do you believe you would understand America as our founding fathers understood America if this was the kind of stuff that you heard from the pulpit every single Sunday?

The government of the Northern Territory of Australia is now running "mandatory supervised" COVID-19 quarantine facilities, and there are a lot of conflicting reports going around about what's really happening in these "camps." Are they internment camps, summer vacation spots, or something in between?

On "The Glenn Beck Program" Monday, Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere discussed the case of 26-year-old Australian resident Hayley Hodgson, who detailed her experience at the Center of National Resilience in Howard Springs during a recent interview with UnHerd. They compared Hodgson's description of the Howard Springs facility to images of bikini-clad Australians in quarantine who appear to be on holiday at the same facility.

So, what's really going on with Australia's COVID quarantine facilities? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Stu break down what we know so far:

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."
