Glenn Beck: Most 'controversial' Super Bowl ad



Most 'controversial' Super Bowl ad

GLENN: Stu is at the Super Bowl. He's one of the wealthiest 1%. So he just decides, I'm going to go to the Super Bowl. So he went to the Super Bowl. I instead watched it with my son and basically was more interested in the commercials than anything else, and I'm laughing at the commercial last night when the pro life commercial came on. So I missed the first couple of seconds. In the audio vault, Pat's audio vault, we have the audio yesterday of this offensive, offensive commercial.

VOICE: I'm calling my miracle baby, he almost didn't make it into this world. I can remember so many times when I almost lost him. It was so hard. Well, he's all grown up now and I still worry with his health. You know, with all our family's been through, you have to be tough. Timmy, trying to tell our story here.

TEBOW: Sorry about that, mom. Do you still worry about me, mom?

VOICE: Well, yeah. You are not nearly as tough as I am.

PAT: Can you imagine the nerve it took to run that, she cares about her son's health, almost lost him, didn't

GLENN: There's so many women that were offended by that.

PAT: Wow. And why not? And why not?

GLENN: This is, this is the controversial ad that is playing on television. We have gotten to a place, America, where that ad is controversial in the newspapers and in the media, that the extreme left is so far they think they are so much in charge of this country that they can actually tell you that that was offensive.

PAT: Not only was it not offensive, they didn't even mention pro life. She didn't even say, I've decided to keep the abortion, to keep the baby, nothing. That's I don't get it.

GLENN: It's a mom talking about how special her child is. The state can talk about how special children are but not moms.

PAT: I mean, if you want to be offended, I guess you could be offended by how cheesy it was.

GLENN: It was cheesy.

PAT: It was cheesy. You could be offended about the fact that he tackled his mom and she bounced right back. "Hey, you shouldn't tackle a woman, that was wrong."

GLENN: I have to tell you I am reading one of the best books I have read in, I mean, when's the last time? Look at this. Look at the pages here, Pat. When's the last time you did this to a book where you just, where you're writing all over it and I mean, it is

PAT: I've never done that to a book.

GLENN: You've never done that to a book?

PAT: Not to that extent, no.

GLENN: This is the best this is turning out to be one of the best books.

PAT: Pages are torn, ripped, shredded. He folds them into airplane designs.

GLENN: I do. The way I fold it, it's like origami, like book origami. The way I fold pages means something else to me.

PAT: Things are circled, underlined, highlighted.

GLENN: You must go out and find A Patriot's History of the United States, from Columbus' great discovery to the war on terror by like Schweickart. It is, I don't even know how long it has been out. What is it, 2005? And it is a history book that Larry Schweickart is a new friend of mine I met, I don't know, a couple of weeks ago. I did the show, what was it, I did the show, was it just last week we did the show on progressives? Week before last we did the show with the three eggheads on progressives and Larry Schweickart is one of them. And one of the guys, another one of the eggheads said, have you read patriot's history? And I said, no, I haven't read it. He said, you've got to do it. I actually called Larry because I didn't know Larry at all. He came highly recommended when we were looking for somebody who understood the progressive movement and didn't know him. And when I introduced him, I said, you know, and he's also written this book and this book. Afterwards I told him, I said, Larry, I'm sorry, I don't usually have people on the show that I haven't read their work, so I'm sorry that I didn't know. I called him up afterwards about a week after because I read his book and I said, Larry, I can't tell you how sorry I am. You're a superstar. This book, A Patriot's History of the United States, should be required reading for everybody in the United States. If you just understood, it's, I don't know, 800 pages? But it's from Columbus to the World Trade Center. Yeah, it's 800 it's 700 something pages. If you just read and understood the time period between 1880 and 1930, the entire country would change. You wouldn't have we wouldn't have an Obama issue. We wouldn't have this progressive issue. It is so clear when you read what, especially Woodrow Wilson, and this one, I've given you some Woodrow Wilson books that will make your eyes bleed. This one is so easy and so clear to read. I have gone, I've learned more out of this book than I think Pat and I talked about it before we went on the air. I just read some of the things in here. We've learned more from this book in the last week, I think I've learned from anything in the last year. Would you agree with that, Pat?

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: It's unbelievable.

PAT: I think it's increased our knowledge of progressivism exponentially.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. So the reason I bring this book up is because last night I'm reading about the progressive era and I'm going back again through Woodrow Wilson and in the coming days I'm going to show you some stuff that, I mean, I've got to tell you something. You will find Barack Obama's playbook from 1910 to 1920. Everything that Obama is doing they've done before, everything. Even going over to France as the conquering hero and then leaving and everybody going, you know what, maybe that wasn't so he's not really God, is he? I mean, all of it has been done before. But I'm reading last night about Margaret Sanger who is the woman who started Planned Parenthood. Now, this ad last night, the main force against it, if I'm not mistaken, was Planned Parenthood.

PAT: Yeah, all the leftist extreme groups like Planned Parenthood and NARAL got together and railed against it, and I don't think any of them had even seen it, they just heard about it. Oh, there's going to be a pro life ad from a Florida Heisman trophy winner? We can't have that. And so they all started screaming about it. And Planned Parenthood put out an ad against it before it even aired.

GLENN: An ad against it? What was the ad against it?

PAT: Well, it was a couple of former Republicans

GLENN: Don't keep your kid!

PAT: Yeah, it was, you know, women's right to choose. I have it if you want to hear it. But it was, we respect all women's choices.

GLENN: No, you don't.

PAT: No, they don't.

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
