Glenn Beck: Lemonade?




RELATED STORY


Alcohol: 5%; common sense: 0

GLENN:  888-727-BECK, 888-727-BECK.  You know, can I just change the subject just for a second to, have you heard the story about the guy who bought the Mike's Hard lemonade for his kid?

STU:  I've seen the headline but I don't know anything about it.p>

GLENN:  I don't have the -- I don't know what ballpark it was and I don't know the age of the kid.  Can you look that up for me?

STU:  Sure.

GLENN:  But the dad went in, he went with this kid to this ballpark.

STU:  Which ballpark was it?

GLENN:  I don't know the ballpark.  That's why I asked could you --

STU:  That's not important.  How old was the kid?  Was it an older kid?

DAN:  He was probably 21.

GLENN:  The only facts of the story I don't have, how old -- Sarah, could you look up how old the kid was and what the ballpark was?

DAN:  Do you at least know what year the kid was born in?

STU:  What company sponsors the ballpark, if you can tell me that.

GLENN:  I have no idea.

DAN:  What's the home team of the ballpark?

GLENN:  Don't know.  Don't know.  Thank you, though.  Thank you.  You've made it delightful to first do no harm to the kid.

STU:  Was the kid of drinking age?  At least we know that.

GLENN:  No, he wasn't of drinking age.  So the dad takes a kid and let's just imagine that he's 7.

STU:  He is 7.

GLENN:  How do you know he's 7?

STU:  I looked it up.  When you brought this story to the table without any of the facts that we needed, I decided to do some research of my own.  He's 7 years old, Comerica Park, Detroit.

GLENN:  Why don't you tell the story, Stu.

STU:  It's funny because this guy brings his --

GLENN:  You are not to tell the story!  So this 7-year-old kid goes to the ballpark with his dad and they walk up to, you know, where you buy, you know, lemonade and hot dogs and everything else and I saw the sign.  The sign just says, Mike's Lemonade.  So the dad looks at his son and says, you want some lemonade?  Kid says yeah.  Kid goes, buys two lemonades, goes back to their seats.  They are sitting in the seats.

STU:  Wait.  How much did he buy the lemonade for?

GLENN:  I'm going to say $6.

STU:  $7.  So he goes back to his seat in Comerica Park with his 7-year-old son that he bought lemonade for, for $7, and?

GLENN:  So they're sitting there in their seats and they're just drinking the lemonade and pretty soon, I believe it was an usher or a security guard.  Who the hell was it that came up to him, Stu?

STU:  You don't know?

GLENN:  Oh, it's not in your story, huh?

STU:  I haven't got that far.

GLENN:  So anyway, somebody comes up to him and says, excuse me, sir, is your kid drinking?  And the guy says, yeah.  Because he's thinking, yes, he's drinking liquid.

STU:  Security guard, Glenn.

GLENN:  Thank you.

STU:  Comerica Park.

GLENN:  Thank you.  So he said, so is your kid drinking?  And he says, yeah.  He said, do you realize that's alcoholic?  And he says, oh, my gosh, I had no idea.  Takes it away from his son.  Well, they arrest him.  Now here's the rest of the story.  They've taken the son away from the father because that's the law.  He was giving his son alcohol.  This is where common sense has disappeared in America.  We no longer -- we know what the right thing to do is but we either choose not to do it or we don't allow common sense to happen anymore.  We don't allow anything to -- we can't -- God forbid we can't.  We have to now take the son away from the father.

I saw the father on television crying his eyes out.  The guy had no idea.  I mean, don't you think this is a little unreasonable?  I mean, I get it, I'm sorry, I don't know.  It's like, I don't drink Mike's Hard Lemonade.  It said lemonade on the sign.

STU:  They have a picture of the sign.  It just says Mike's Lemonade.

GLENN:  And let me tell you something, I have been dumb as a box of rocks but I've been out of the alcohol industry for a long time.  I mean, I always joke about this.  I mean, before -- you know, before they had, like, really cool things to drink when it was -- I mean, I was just -- I'm like a cowboy.  When I was drinking, it was just whiskey, give me whiskey.  Now they got all these different flavors and, you know, Mike's Hard Lemonade.  My gosh, I would have been having Mike's Hard Lemonade at 4:00 a.m. in the morning, this is fantastic stuff.  I've been out of it for a while.  First time I saw Mike's Hard Lemonade, no idea.  No idea.  Picked it up in a store, was going to buy it and drink it and somebody who was with me said, got something to tell me, Glenn?  I'm like, no.  What?  "I don't think you want that."  I said, lemonade?  I don't know.  It sounds good.  Have you ever had it?  I don't know.  It's Mike's.  And he's like, yeah, it's got booze in it.  I'm like, oh, hang on, let me get a six-pack.  I had no idea.  Especially if the sign -- you know what tipped me off?  I did look at it and go, oh, Hard Lemonade, I guess that should have clicked.  But I don't know.  If the sign just said Mike's Lemonade, who's Mike?  I don't know.  I thought he was the guy with the hot dog.  I don't know, wearing the paper hat.  Who's Mike?  Must have been good.  It's got his name on it, Mike.  Thought it was lemonade with some credibility.

STU:  You thought Mike was giving a testimonial about his lemonade?

GLENN:  It's like, we go to the ballpark here at where?

STU:  Comerica Park.

GLENN:  Comerica Park's known for Mike and his lemonade.  Been happening here since the stadium was built.

STU:  What section did it happen in, Glenn, by the way, this whole incident?  Do you know?  That's an important detail to -- Section 116.

GLENN:  That's not the way I roll, Stu, just not the way I roll.

From food and job shortages to the prices of building materials "skyrocketing," the world is currently moving into what could be the "perfect storm" for politicians to push for a universal basic income, explained Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"We really need to look at the economy and be prepared for what is coming," Glenn said. "I feel like my job is to warn you of the things that are coming and, when I can, give you ways to navigate around. But at least so you can hear the warning and decide yourself what you're going to do with that."

Glenn explained that now, for the first time, there is a shortage of starter homes and building supplies just as increasing numbers of millennials are in the market. Also, analysts are predicting that shortages of food items and products such as pork, polystyrene, and chlorine could send prices soaring. Then there's the matter of unemployment, kicked off by the COVID-19 pandemic and likely to worsen because of the technological revolution, there are going to be fewer and fewer jobs for people to do.

"We are creating this perfect storm, right now, where universal basic income is going to be embraced by people," Glenn warned. "It's just this nasty cycle that we're beginning, and we're watching it unfold right in front of us."

More than 100 business leaders and CEOs from some of the world's largest corporations recently met during a Zoom meeting to discuss how they can band together to fight "election integrity laws," like the voting law recently passed in Georgia.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck explained how this government-corporation partnership is not only proof of fascism, but it is also demonstrative of how our lives will be under The Great Reset: government and large corporations will work together to set the rules, and the freedoms of the individual American will be squashed.

"I want you to understand ... everything that they have ever said about, 'oh, it's a conspiracy theory' about The Great Reset, you can throw that in the garbage now," Glenn began. "Something happened this weekend that is absolutely unprecedented. I have done this job, for ... I don't even know how many years, almost 50 years, and I've never seen anything like this.

"People that were on the [Zoom] call, they talked about potential ways to show how they opposed the legislation, including ... delaying investments in states. That's blackmail," Glenn continued.

"So these corporations, they're going to act as a — what? A secondary government? ... I don't know. I didn't elect the CEO of Merck. Did you?" he said.

"Corporations [are] openly meeting and coordinating efforts to change laws," Glenn added. "This is fascism, guys! Fascism is when government and corporations work hand in hand. That is fascism."

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."
