Glenn Beck: Punished by a Baby

GLENN: Here's Barack Obama which I believe is your dream house, and I'll explain in a second. Here's your dream house, Barack Obama, talking about birth control.

SENATOR OBAMA: I've got two daughters, 9 years old and 6 years old. I'm going to teach them first of all about values and morals but if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby. I don't want them punished with an STD at the age of 16, you know. So it doesn't make sense.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. He doesn't -- Stu, he doesn't want you punished with herpes.

STU: No, definitely not, HIV. Chlamydia?

GLENN: Or a baby. Chlamydia or a baby, he doesn't want those punishments coming toward you.

STU: You know, I routinely will send out gift baskets to people when they get chlamydia.

GLENN: But they do it intentionally. They're like, we're trying to get chlamydia. You look at them and like, you're so cute, we've been out all weekend trying to get chlamydia. Eventually you come over and it becomes kind of awkward and the guy is like, trying to get chlamydia used to be fun. Now she's up with her legs in the air all the time and it's a nightmare.

STU: You want to start your own little --

GLENN: Honey, I think I'm really close to getting chlamydia. Now would be the time.

STU: Their own little family of STDs and I think that's the dream of every family.

GLENN: Sure you do. But hate to get yourself punished, trying to get chlamydia, have yourself punished with a baby. You know what I mean? What a nightmare that would be.

Okay. A lot of people will say, well, he just misspoke; you know what he means. Yes, I do know what he means. And let's just be very clear. I can only give people in Washington or want to be in Washington so many opportunities to misspeak. By the way, look it up. It's in the thesaurus. By the way, look it up. Misspeak, another word, interchangeable according to the thesaurus is lie. So I can only give you so many chances of misspeaking before I start thinking, there might be something more to this.

He doesn't want his child to be punished with a baby. This tells you all kinds of things. First of all, clear stance on abortion. What is his stance on abortion? I'm just assuming that he's wildly pro choice, but is he one of these politicians who says, "I want to make it rare but I want to make it safe. I want to make sure -- I want to do everything I can, you know, that jeez, if they happen to get pregnant..."

SENATOR OBAMA: I don't want them punished with a baby.

GLENN: I want to make it -- I value life.

SENATOR OBAMA: I don't want them punished with a baby.

GLENN: But I don't want them punished with a baby. Yes, Stu.

STU: Just so you are aware, I want to make sure you understand.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Barack Obama's abortion platform.

GLENN: How accurate is my description?

STU: Well, he did support Roe versus Wade but he released this quote on the Supreme Court decision upholding the partial birth abortion ban.

GLENN: The partial birth abortion ban.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: This is where you can be birthed to the head, just keep the head inside of the mother and then kill the baby.

STU: He strongly disagreed with today's Supreme Court ruling, end quote.

GLENN: Against partial birth abortion.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Well, because he doesn't --

SENATOR OBAMA: I don't want them punished with a baby.

GLENN: He doesn't want them punished with a baby. You know what I mean? So -- does he anywhere say, does he say that he wants to make it rare but safe?

STU: I don't see that yet. We're still looking.

GLENN: Well, then God bless him. At least -- then maybe you don't need this. Maybe you don't need this lesson of "Punished with a baby" because he's never saying, "But I want to make it rare." This is the amazing thing. This is what you can -- this is what you need to take away from Barack Obama on this. What you learned from Barack Obama in, you know, I don't want them punished with a baby is this: That he sees children as a punishment, not for everybody but for some children are a punishment. Others, children is a blessing. A child is a blessing because you are trying. You are trying to avoid it. So it's a punishment. The point is the baby becomes an "It." The baby is just it. So he doesn't see the sanctity of life is something that can punish you or bless you. I'm sorry but that's an abomination in the eyes of God as I would see it. I can't imagine how a baby could punish you. A baby is a gift at all times. A baby is the closest to perfection that we get at all times. We should be striving to be more like that innocent child than trying to just say, I don't want them to be punished by a baby.

So he doesn't understand. He sees it as either/or. Could be a blessing, could be a punishment. That should tell you something about the sanctity of life.

But it goes deeper than this. It goes into punishment. What is the problem with America? What is the phrase that I've been saying that we should be saying to each other more often, we should be saying out loud? You should be screaming it, and I know you do, screaming it at your television all the time when you watch the news: "Too bad! Sucks to be you! Guess you shouldn't have done that one, huh? Wow, who could have seen this mistake." Well, he's got a 9-year-old and he doesn't want them punished by a baby if they make a mistake. You know what? A baby is a natural consequence of your actions of having sex. It is a natural consequence. It is why your sex organs were created -- I'm sorry -- evolved from an extra foot, and it evolved into a sex organ. It wasn't there for your pleasure. Maybe that's what you should teach your kids. That our sex organs are not for pleasure. Oh, sure, that's part of it. There's a drive in you that says, yeah, that feels good. But the reason why you feel good is so -- it was God's insurance of making sure you do it and have more babies! Not so God could punish you but he could bless you and he could bless the Earth with having more children. It's a natural consequence. But see, the part of this that people like Obama don't understand is consequence.

Consequence is not necessarily a bad thing. For instance, if my child just so happens to put their hand on a hot stove, "I don't want them punished by a burn." Neither do I. I don't want my son or daughter punished by a burn by any stretch of the imagination. But do I think when they put their hand on the stove it's all a bad thing? No. It hurts them. It hurts me as I'm trying to heal their hand. It hurts me and it hurts them a lot. But you know what? They never put their hand there again.

Now, back to "I don't want them punished by a baby." Not only does it show you his stance on life but it also should show you where he stands on consequence. What do you think he's going to do with Citigroup? Citigroup, you failed. Wow, you made some bad investments. Sucks to be you. Too bad. Taxpayers not going to bail you out. Bear Stearns, wow, didn't work out for you, did it? Sucks to be you. Wow. You have how much in mortgage and you make what per month? Really? Looking like a bad idea to sign that loan, huh? Sucks to be you. The only ones that should be bailed out were the ones that were duped, the ones that were lied to. The consumers that were raped, hmmm. We should not bail our children out if they're punished by a baby. We should have a conversation with our kids beforehand. The natural consequence of having sex is having a baby. Do you think you're capable of having a baby at your age? No. Would you want -- do you know what your life, how your life will change? No.

Let me explain how your life will change and let me also explain before you even think about having sex that if you become pregnant and you're 12, you are not going to raise that baby because now we've made two mistakes. Now we've gotten pregnant and we've decided to wreck that child's chances by having them raised by a 12-year-old or a 15-year-old or a 16-year-old. No. So the family believes in not abortion but adoption because a baby is not a punishment. A baby is a blessing. Not to you. It's a natural consequence of having sex. But that baby is a blessing to somebody, and somebody will bless that baby for your mistake, period.

Now, which, which role is going to help the child more? A father and mother that understand and are not going to condemn their child to a life of hell because they made a mistake, a gigantic significant one, maybe hopefully the biggest one they will ever make in their life, one that will sit down and teach them that there are consequences to mistakes, and the bigger the mistake, the bigger the consequence and the more it's going to hurt. "You have this baby and you give it up, it's going to hurt for a very long time." How do I know it? Because the teenager is the reason I have my son Raphe. My son we prayed for for years trying to -- oh, yeah, she had her legs up and we were taking her temperature and everything else. It was ugly. Couldn't get pregnant, couldn't get pregnant, couldn't even get chlamydia. And a teenager made a mistake, and her mother was smart enough to say, you can't, you can't destroy this child's life, and she was smart enough to say, "I can't have an abortion, I can't kill this child" and so she did the hardest thing she probably will ever do. She allowed that baby to be blessed by others and allowed that baby to bless others. She wasn't -- what did Barack say again, Dan? I'm sorry.

SENATOR OBAMA: I don't want them punished with a baby.

GLENN: She wasn't punished with a baby. We were all blessed by a baby. Her blessing will take time, but in time she will realize she went through the hardest thing in her life and she survived. In time she will grow from the experience in a positive way. You are just witnessed yet another piece that shows you the inside, the inside workings of Barack Obama. You have to do a little math on it. It's not about, you know, I don't want you, you know, being -- what again, Dan?

SENATOR OBAMA: I don't want them punished with a baby.

GLENN: Yeah, don't want you punished by a baby. Has less to do with that and more to do with, let's give everybody trophies. Let's not have anybody feeling consequence. Let's not have anybody have any problems in the world. When those problems, when those punishments, to use his language, are natural. Let's stop nature.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn explained why he wouldn't be surprised to see our supply chain collapse and empty shelves in America in the near future. Shortages are already wrecking our economy, China (where many of our goods are still made) is facing an energy shortage, and the Biden administration sure seems to be doing everything it can to make things worse.

Glenn noted a serious warning from American CEO Mike Beckham: "There's a major storm brewing in the supply chain," Beckham wrote on Twitter.

Thanks to China's centrally planned system, electricity shortages are causing huge delays in product manufacturing. In fact, some items are facing a 33 percent cut in production. "It could dramatically impact every [American's] life next year. But almost no one knows about it yet," Beckham warned.

Glenn went on to explain exactly what this means for you — and what you can do to prepare.

Every decision made by President Joe Biden has ended in "disaster," Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck.

O'Reilly joined the radio program to explain why he thinks there's only one "mechanism" Americans can use stop the Biden administration's mess.

"Give me one thing that [Biden] has done, just one, that's improved this nation. Everything that he has been involved with is a disaster. Everything from the COVID mandates, to the energy policies, to the economic policies, to the inflation, to Afghanistan, to the collapsing southern border, to the social woke business, to the denial of due process. Right across-the-board, there isn't anything this man has done, or stood for, that's improved America," O'Reilly said.

"But there is no mechanism to do anything about it until a year from this November: the midterm elections. That's the only mechanism that we have, under the Constitution. We elected this guy and he's there for four years. You neutralize him next November [2022], with the Republicans taking back the House and Senate, then he's done. [He] can't do anymore damage because you've got him in a hole. And he's not going to be proactive with executive orders. He's just going to stay there in his jammies for two more years. OK? So that's the only mechanism."

O'Reilly also tore into the corporate media for using its power to defend Gen. Mark Milley after news of his China calls broke. Is there any deterrence in American society anymore to keep our leaders and media in check?

"What does this say to the United States of America when you have two of the most powerful information agencies in the world — NBC, Comcast, and AT&T, CNN — actively deceiving you?" O'Reilly said. "They know what they're doing. And yet there is absolutely no way for anyone to hold them accountable other than not watching them, which has, of course, happened. You know they have no audience. But just the corruption level of the information flow to the American people is at an all-time high. We have never had a worse media in the history of this republic."

Twitter is full of fake communists. Privileged teenagers and 20-somethings who tweet about Karl Marx from their iPhone, safe inside their parents' house.

A recent example of this is the "What is your job on the Leftist commune?" meme. It began as a tweet from some anonymous Twitter Marxist, asking "What is your job on the Leftist commune?"

She continued, "I'm gonna be leading discussion on theory some days, making clothes from scraps other days, and making lattes whenever needed."

The tweet got thousands of likes, retweets, and comments. Things like, "Bringing everyone water. Pouring tea and hot cocoa for folx in the reading alcoves. Checking in and doing a pause-to-breath with folx."

By the way, "folks" is spelled with an "x" for some reason.

Other commune occupations included "proofreading pamphlets," singing, archery, cooking, crotchet, "guiding embodiment practices," tarot card reading, "identity politic lawyering." Therapist, librarian, prostitute, and "puppy kindergarten teacher."

They're basically parroting Marx, whose communist society sounds like Woodstock or Burning Man.

They're basically parroting Marx, whose communist society sounds like Woodstock or Burning Man.

A magical place where "there are no painters but at most people who engage in painting among other things," which allows "everyone sufficient free time to take part in the general affairs of society — theoretical as well as practical," so that "there are no politicians but at most people who engage in politics among other activities."

Don't you know that communism is all about leisure and good vibes? A playground full of puppies and lattes.

Marx refers to "idle time" as a time for higher activity. He calls it "time for the full development of the individual."

Me Time. A life of spa days.

Generation Z is the first digital generation. The first generation to be born inside the internet. So it's no surprise that they have fallen for this kind of Marxist nonsense. If someone convinces you that Marxism will free you from work, of course you'd want it.

Now they're quitting their jobs in droves. The media is calling it "The Great Resignation," but really it's just a new version of Marx's anti-work movement.

Gen Z are incredibly progressive. And they expect the government to be involved. Decades of Marxist activism have finally convinced a generation that the point of work, the point of life, the point of government, is activism.

Pew Research Center found that seven in ten "members of Gen Z are more likely than older generations to look to government to solve problems, rather than businesses and individuals."

Seven in ten of Gen Z believe that the government should do more to solve problems. A majority of them are not proud of America, a majority of them hold negative views of capitalism.

They believe Marx when he says that Capitalism is only good for producing its own grave-diggers. We know that this is actually a description of communism. Actually, communism is much worse. Because it always results in mass graves.

They haven't realized that that the world that Marx foresaw is long gone. It failed. Repeatedly.

They don't realize that, even on the page, Marxism doesn't work. Because ultimately the greatest flaw of Marxism is that it forces us to choose between productive slavery and unproductive freedom. Either way, with Marxism we can never be free.

"The Great Resignation" is ultimately a crisis of freedom, identity, and exhaustion. It is, as noted in a recent Gallup report, an expression of great discontent. Gen Z feels like they have nothing to lose and nothing to gain.

But in America, there's always something to lose and gain.

But in America, there's always something to lose and gain. They just need to have a little patience.

For the most part, Americans adhere to the libertarian maxim, "As long as you're not hurting anyone…." It's our undeniable belief in the goodness of the people around us. If you've traveled out of the States much, you know this to be true. There's a spirit inherent to America, and it is overwhelmingly good in nature.

Marx's utopia would ruin us. It would make us as lazy as Marx. A man who lived off other people his entire life. A man who had no loyalty to any nation because no nation wanted him. He was stateless. Do you realize how awful a person has to be for them to be stateless?

Maybe Gen Z just needs to see America at its finest.

Marx's utopia would quickly become disgusting. It would leave us feeling empty. Hopefully, they realize this before it's too late. For their own sake. Because, if America ever actually fell to communism, they would be the first ones against the wall.

When the government plans to spend $3.5 trillion that it doesn't have on a loose definition of "infrastructure," it's a good idea to know what's actually in it.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck revealed some of the expenditures Democrats hid in the bill, like a 10-fold increase in fines for employers who don't comply with the government's COVID-19 mandates, "equitable" bankroll for Biden's Build Back Better agenda, and "climate justice" funding.

"Let me tell you what's in our infrastructure bill, the $3.5 trillion bill," Glenn began. "Nancy Pelosi quietly tucked an enforcement mechanism into the $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill, passed it down to the budget committee, and sent it to the House floor. It's something you should know about, on page 168. I know, why read it? It's 2,465 pages."

Glenn pointed out the huge fees for certain businesses that refuse to comply with the Biden administration's proposed vaccine mandates. The fees could be as much as $700,000.

"Up to $700,000 ... that will kill all companies that are noncompliant. Kill them. That's 80 million of us who work in companies that are going to be fined in that way, if they don't bow the knee to the king," he said.

Glenn and Stu Burguiere went on to discuss more Democrat "wish list" items hidden inside this reconciliation bill, such as establishing "business incubators" who are authorized to disperse tens of billions of dollars to startup businesses in underserved areas, including the formerly incarcerated, and exclusive to businesses less that five years in operation or in "the planning stages."

"These sorts of businesses are the most risky place to put your money. Well, that matters when it's your money. But if it's not your money, who cares how risky it is. It's our [taxpayers] money so they don't care at all," Stu noted.

"Well, there's also $5 billion for climate justice block grants to pay for community organizations for, among other things, facilitating engagement of disadvantaged communities in state and federal processes," Glenn read. "Wait a minute. 'Facilitating engagement of disadvantaged communities in state and federal processes'? Organizing votes — that's what it sounds like."

"This is essentially all of us funding the fever dream of Barack Obama," Stu said.
