GLENN BECK PROGRAM


BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

GLENN: I want to go over this, the beauty queen, the teen beauty queen. I feel bad for her quite honestly. Her name is Lauren Upton and she was on -- she's Miss Teen South Carolina and I guess she was on Miss Teen USA with Mario Lopez. And Stu, for those who -- I'm going to pretend I don't know who Mario Lopez is.

STU: Who's going to believe that you don't know?

GLENN: Is that Jennifer Lopez's brother?

STU: I don't think so.

GLENN: Husband, ex-husband?

STU: What if they just weren't related at all?

GLENN: Weren't related at all?

STU: Yes. What if they just weren't related at all?

GLENN: I don't know.

STU: Like you are doing a really good job acting like you don't know who he is here because you are just throwing out random possibilities.

GLENN: Well, I'm confused.

STU: Right. You're acting like you're confused.

GLENN: Is he one of the Mario brothers?

STU: No, I think you're --

GLENN: Anyway, who is he?

STU: He is the guy, he played on Saved By the Bell. A. C. Slater, Saved By the Bell, Glenn.

DAN: You never watched Saved By the Bell every day.

STU: You are faking that position.

GLENN: So Mario Lopez asked this question on Miss Teen USA and is the question included? Here it is. Listen to this. I warn you, I'm going to have to stop it halfway through her answer, maybe several times through her answer because you are not going to be able to take it. Your head's going to hurt. You're going to be so embarrassed.

DAN: Well, Glenn, also in here, too, is kind of, he sets up what this means, this part of it. So you really get into the moment here. Just the pressure that Miss Carolina --

GLENN: I feel bad for her because it is a lot of pressure. It is a lot of pressure and you can see anybody just crumbling on it, but good heavens, here it is.

SPEAKER: That is the round of competition that ultimately determines their fate. The "Make it or break it" moment. The ladies will have to demonstrate their ability to answer a thought-provoking final question. Sound simple? Easier said than done, especially when the whole country is watching. Here's how it works. Our panel of judges have prepared their own questions. So now we will ask each finalist to pick the name of the judge, who will then ask a final question. Ladies, you'll have 30 seconds before you hear the sound of this bell (bell sounding.) Good luck. We begin with South Carolina. (Applause)

SLATER: Hello, South Carolina, please pick out the name of the judge. Thank you. Judge Number 5, Amy Teegarden.

JUDGE NO. 5: Recent polls have shown a fifth of Americans can't locate the U.S. on a world map.

GLENN: Stop. A fifth of Americans can't locate the U.S. on a map. That is -- Stu, I want you to look that up.

STU: Yeah, I don't believe that.

GLENN: That is incredible if that's true.

STU: Yeah, you can convince me that they can't place states, you can convince me they can't find Iraq or the U.K.

GLENN: How do you not find America on a map?

STU: Just, I don't see how that can be.

GLENN: Home schooling. I'm just saying. I mean, how is that possible? Well, if you don't believe it, here comes the answer.

VOICE: Why do you think this is?

VOICE: I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so --

GLENN: Stop. Stop, stop. She personally believes that U.S. Americans? Okay, I won't nitpick. So U.S. Americans can't do it because -- this is what she personally believes. Because...

VOICE: Miss South Carolina: Because some people out there in our nation don't have maps and --



A scene from the Miss Teen USA 2007 competition.

GLENN: Stop. (Laughing). So some people don't have maps and you can think to yourself, okay, she's going for a poverty thing. Some people just -- some people are so poor in this country, they can't afford maps, and we need the Government to provide maps for every child in America so they can locate America on a map. No, no, that's not what she decided to do. Instead she went this route.

VOICE: Miss South Carolina: And that I believe that our education such as South Africa and Iraq, everywhere like such as, and I believe that they should -- our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S. -- or should help South Africa and should help Iraq and the Asian countries. So we will be able to build up our future for our children.

VOICE: Thank you very much, South Carolina.

STU: That's a great response: Thank you very much. What else do you say? What else do you do after that?

GLENN: What do you say? And you know what it was? She was bound and determined, she was trying to do what politicians do. No matter what they ask you, no matter what they ask you, you get in South Africa and Iraq. That's what she's doing.

STU: That's great.

GLENN: Those are the two politically correct things to do. You just -- I'm worried about the children in Iraq, I'm worried about this war. You look deep, go for a depth charge. I'm worried about South Africa, whatever I have to say about South Africa. I'm from South Carolina; I'm not racist. I care about South Africa, okay? So that was the advice. I can guarantee that was the advice: Just work them, no matter what they ask you, just go for this. You just have to say this.

So why don't they have maps? Because a lot of people can't afford maps, but that's why we should have education to help people in South Africa and Iraq.

STU: What? I feel terrible for her, though. Because this is like the big, you know, youtube. Can you put this in the news letter today, Dan?

DAN: Oh, yes.

GLENN: Oh, no. I feel bad, I do.

STU: You need to see it, though.

GLENN: She's a teenager. I feel bad for her.

STU: They're legitimately pressured.

DAN: This is the American Idol thing. You guys said you don't feel bad. She's putting herself out there.

[ OVERLAPPING SPEAKERS ]

GLENN: You don't have to -- she's going to be Owen Wilson by the end of the evening.

STU: No, no. I mean, look. It's a bad moment for her but I'm sure she has a lot of stuff going, going on in her -- her life is going to turn out good, I think. I think she's going to -- I think it's all going to turn around.


>> Miss South Carolina: I believe that they should --

GLENN: Do you believe that, Stu?

STU: I firmly believe she's got a shot at possibly --

GLENN: What I really believe is, and that's another thing, they said start with what you really believe. She's bluffing when she says, I firmly believe, she's thinking, what do I believe, what do I believe, how do I work in South Africa? Maps, maps, nobody told me that there would be a map question. I firmly believe... that nobody told me there would be a map question? That nobody... Africa. Good night, everybody.

END TRANSCRIPT

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."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.
