Glenn Beck's Texas Flag Story

GLENN BECK PROGRAM


BEGIN TRANSCRIPT


GLENN: I love this. This is one of my favorite Texan stories. This says it all. I think this should be the new American flag. It's got a cannon on it. The Mexicans came to try to take this cannon because they wanted this cannon back that we had won in some battle and they wanted the cannon back. They came to get it and the citizens, you know, attacked Mexicans and drove them all back across the border and then they had the -- they flew this flag for a while. It's got one star on it. It's got a picture of the cannon and then underneath it just says, "Come and take it." I love that.

STU: And you're saying you're actually going to fly that flag in Connecticut in front of your house?

GLENN: I got this one for the studio and I ask -- because I've been looking for it for a while and I finally found it at Columbia Flag and Banner down in Columbia, South Carolina when we were down there. I asked them, I said, I've been looking for this flag; can you find this flag for me? Guy's done research, he finally found it. This is the size it comes in. I'm having one made. I'm having a huge one made and I'm having it made for my house and I'm going to fly it -- first day I'm flying it, September 11th. I'm putting it on a giant, like, car lot, you know, car sales lot flagpole in front of my house. I'm having a huge one of these made and I'm flying it in front of my house on September 11th. I'm going to freak my neighbors out.

STU: Your town's going to love you, although I will say that combined with the vicious guard dog and the -- and all of the security in front of your house, with that flag as well that just has a giant cannon and says "Come and take it" flying in front of your house, there will be no chance of home invasion.

GLENN: There's no crime on my property. With the signs, with the cameras, with the dogs, with the two American flags and this one? No one's coming into my house. They will be like, he's crazy. I think my newspaper could be delivered to my door in Connecticut but never make it to the door. I think the guy will be afraid. He will just put it, like on the -- he will just put it like on the curb, nicely stacked on the curb, you know, maybe a little cup of coffee or something next to it. Just in case you like this, Mr. Beck, I thought I'd leave you a little coffee, too. I'm afraid; please don't kill me.

STU: Guy getting biscotti delivered to him on his curb.

GLENN: I can't imagine what people are going to say when they drive by a big flag that has a cannon on it that says "Come and take it"? They're going to freak out. It's going to be the happiest day of my -- I may just sit in the front room and watch the cars go by.

STU: You know, some people would say you are getting this flag, gigantic custom-made flag, you know, put together for you. People might say, hey, that's a really expensive flag but really, it's a really inexpensive security system.

GLENN: It's just tremendous. The flag, I mean, it's going to be a huge flag. They'll make it for $200. That's worth every -- are you kidding me? That's worth every penny.

STU: You can get rid of all your cameras. You don't even need a dog.

GLENN: Dog, I don't need to buy Purina One, I don't need to buy Purina One. $200, I got the best security system forever, for all time. Come and take it!

STU: You are not going to get many trick-or-treaters, I'll say that.

GLENN: Good! More candy for me! I'll take the cannon off and I'll have them sew a giant pumpkin on it. I'll fly that one for Halloween. Come and take my candy, kids! Out of my cold, dead hands. [Laughter]. You'll get that fun size, but you'll have to kill me first.

END TRANSCRIPT

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
