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.

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."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.
