Glenn Beck: Disney peddling trash in China?


Forget Miley Cyrus, here is Disney's Chinese underwear ad

GLENN:  Stu, I just forwarded something to your screen, as they say in 24.

STU:  Oh, really?

GLENN:  Yeah.

STU:  Hold on, let me pull it up on the screen.

GLENN:  I want you to look at this picture.  This is an ad -- and I just sent it to Chris Brady.  It's going to be on the front page of the website here in a few minutes.  I want you to look at the website that Disney is running for Disney underwear for kids in China.  Do you have it yet?

STU:  No, I don't know where you sent it.  You don't know how to use the computer.

GLENN:  Yes, I did -- Dan, I just sent it to you, too.

DAN:  Did you use the file menu?

STU:  Yeah, drop down edit.

GLENN:  No, I can't find the file menu anymore.

STU:  Double click format.

GLENN:  Says doc X.  I don't know -- Dan, do you have it?

STU:  Now I have it, now I have it.

GLENN:  Now you have it, now you do.  Is that creepy?

STU:  Is that true?  Are you sure it's true?

GLENN:  Yeah, it came from Joe.  Yeah, oh, jeez.

Is that creepy or what?  I'm going to show this on TV.  It's Disney that is part of this.  Now, Disney says they didn't have anything to do with the ad.  Really?  Disney didn't have anything to do with the Disney underpant ad with Mickey Mouse puppets?  Look at she -- how old is she?  7?  I don't mean to be graphic here, but just to point out how creepy it is, does she not have cleavage?

STU:  I don't want to know.

GLENN:  Look.

STU:  At this point I'm going to say before I get arrested by authorities, I'm going to stop looking.

DAN:  Got to be photo shop.

GLENN:  Of course it's photo shopped.  A child that age does not have cleavage.

STU:  That's very disturbing.

GLENN:  That ad is an ad that is running now in China.  It was on the -- the Post just picked it up.  I think the Post is running it right now.

STU:  Wait, they are saying they didn't have anything to do with the ad?  How did the ad occur?

GLENN:  I have no idea.  Let's see.  Disney spokesperson -- no, no, that was for the other one.  It is on a busy thoroughfare a mile from the forbidden city in China.  White girl, 12 years old, reclining in a matching bra and panties set with with Disney's signature mouse ear design in a particular creepy detail, the pigtailed child is playing with a pair of Mickey Mouse hand puppets.  In the left-hand corner is the familiar script of a Disney logo.  They're saying that Disney -- Disney is claiming they had nothing to do with it.  And how, how and not get sued.

STU:  Well, we need to get that answer.  I mean, maybe there is a good answer.  Maybe they just did it.  It's not like they don't pirate products in that country.  Maybe that's what happened.

GLENN:  Come on.

STU:  It does happen all the time over there.

GLENN:  Not like that.  Come on.  What, you're advertising for the pirated -- yeah, we'll find out.  It's coming on TV tonight.  We're putting this on TV tonight.  Because the Miley Cyrus thing is disturbing.  This is one of the most disturbing things I've seen.

STU:  The Miley Cyrus thing, you want to make sure that you get her under control.

GLENN:  She's okay.

STU:  You want to make sure you don't let anything get out of control.  That's another story.

GLENN:  The Annie Leibovitz thing you could say, okay, well, it's Annie Leibovitz.  I mean, there is something to be said.  Annie Leibovitz is an artist.  So there is something to be said about the art form of photography with Annie Leibovitz.  However --

STU:  Not in that form, though.

GLENN:  I'm not going to do -- if I had a picture like that taken of my daughter, I mean, I can't -- I wouldn't.  I can't imagine it but I mean, I could see it.  I could see somebody saying that is a beautiful photograph.  You know what I mean?  You could say it.  Not for national release.  Not for national release.

STU:  I don't know what the use would be of something like that but I understand what you're saying.  This is certainly not the place you put it.

GLENN:  I get it.  It is your 15-year-old daughter.  How old is she?  Now, the photo that I saw of Miley Cyrus this weekend on her website that she posted where she's pulling down her shirt and exposing her bra, that is a cry for help.

STU:  They are actually saying that she put that on her own website?

GLENN:  They are saying she did it.

STU:  Jeez.

GLENN:  Like two days before the Annie Leibovitz thing.

STU:  Because I did hear a story about that.  I was not aware she actually put it on her own site.

GLENN:  If that happened with my daughter, if I found out with my daughter, Internet would be gone, she would be off of the TV show, she would not be doing anything.

STU:  You would be Amish in 10 seconds.

GLENN:  10 seconds.

STU:  All of a sudden in this world of 1800s technology; congratulations, kid.

GLENN:  It would be over.  Her career would be over.  Dad, you are destroying my -- mmm-hmmm, I'm saving your life.  You want to do it, that's fine, that's fine.  You can go do whatever you want to do when you're 18.  Until that time, I failed as a father.  That's what I would be thinking.  I failed you as a father.  If you think this is appropriate, then I failed you.

STU:  I also want to make a point here real quickly of I'm calling out Joe Kerry and I'm calling you out.  You don't forward things like this to someone's computer.  This is the sort of thing, I go in to get my hard drive fixed and all of a sudden I'm in prison for a week and they can't figure -- I have to explain my way out of it.

GLENN:  Is it up on the website yet?

STU:  "Why is this thing on your computer, sir."  And then they are hitting me with baseball bats until I finally spit out with no more teeth that I'm on the Glenn Beck program and I have to do this stupid story that Glenn forwarded to me; go arrest him.  He lives in Connecticut.

GLENN:  I don't have it on my computer.  I have -- I forwarded it to your office computer from your laptop.

STU:  This is not helpful.

GLENN:  He's sending it -- "Your Honor, I couldn't stop him.  He was sending it from his laptop back to his hard drive."

STU:  Can I delete?  Does that count?  How do I wipe my hard drive?

GLENN:  Here's the latest.  Try this on.  Connecticut's Weslayan University has decided that they're going to have coed dorm rooms.  People are shocked to hear that it's happening or that it's even impossible -- that it's even possible.  College dorms have been off limits to members of the opposite sex in the Fifties.  Then came the Seventies when male and female students started crossing paths in coed dormitories.  But now to the astonishment of some baby boomer parents -- puhleez -- a growing number of colleges are even going further, coed rooms.  At least two dozen schools, Brown University, University of Pennsylvania, Oberlin College, Clark College, California Institute of Technology let students share a room with anyone they choose.  Many schools are starting to follow suit now including Stamford University.  As shocking at is sounds to some parents, some students in schools say it's not about sex.

You ready?  This is a 20-year-old Sophomore guy.  "We just have beds set up side by side like Lucy and Ricky in "I Love Lucy."  I mean, once you actually live in it, it doesn't actually turn into a big deal.  It really doesn't.  We -- I'm quoting -- we have turned our eyes when the other is changing clothes."  Puhleez.  "Oh, I'm sorry, ma'am.  I'm sorry.  I don't -- I certainly don't want to do -- I'm just going to -- I'm going to close my eyes and not peek.  Oh, I am treating you like a lady, of course.  I'll just stand behind here.  We just took our quilt that our grandmothers made and we hang it up in between our beds at night."  Come on!  We avert our -- are there no men left in this society anymore?  Where are the men!  Where are the fathers?  Where are the people that say, "You touch my daughter... oh, really?  You want to live in my daughter's dorm room?  I would like to introduce your kneecaps to my hammer."  Stu says that's a little violent?  Really?  You think?  I know we should shoot the people that are just too weak, they have to go seek medication and medical therapy because of global warming.  They're worried what it's going to do in 1,000 years.  You have no reason to live.  And Stu, when you have daughters and they're teenagers, I will buy you a hammer.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
