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.
