GLENN: From Radio City in Midtown Manhattan, third most listened to show in all of America. Hello, you sick twisted freak. Welcome to the program. I'm going to talk to you a little bit about Sarah Palin, and I hope that I hope that we're now seeing the Sarah Palin that is the Sarah Palin that now gets it. I think it takes you a while to get the press. I think and maybe it's just me, but I've come to New York and to the press and you've seen it. I mean recently. We just did a deal with Time magazine last week and we had worked with them for three weeks on something and they completely misrepresented themselves. Oh, they were, oh, our best buddies. "Oh, yeah." And then they just hatchet us to death. And so you just don't think I saw about it this weekend when I saw that story come out in Time and I thought, how do these people sleep at night? You just don't want to go into it thinking that so many people in the media are just bad people, but I think they are. Not everybody, but I think a lot of them are. They don't care. They will do anything t hey have to for their side to win. I just want the truth and I thought that's what they were into. And so I think Sarah Palin came into this just, it's a different world here in Manhattan and it's a different world in Washington. And I don't mean the regular people. The people in New York get a bad rap. People in New York are just like everybody else. The elites in New York, left and right, they're a freak show and the elites in the media. It's the same thing. Freak show. I think when Sarah Palin first got into it, she was a little like I have been. You know, people are good. People are generally good. No, you know, I know that the, you know, Washington is broken but, no, no. No, no, it's beyond broken. It's a cesspool. It needs to be restored, not just I mean, it needs all the pieces need to be taken out and everything needs to be wiped down and sanitized and then we put new pieces in. That's what has to happen. And I don't think she really understood that. I think she was steam rolled by the McCain campaign and didn't see that one coming. I think the McCain campaign and I have nothing I'm basing this on other than my own gut. I think the McCain campaign used her and despised her at the same time. And I also believe that the Republicans do not like Sarah Palin as much as the Democrats don't. Now, not all of them because there's some Democrats in there that or some Republicans in there that are like, yeah, we need a good housecleaning, we need somebody who can, you know, just restore this thing the way it should be. But anybody who plays the game hates Sarah Palin. Any of the elites like David Letterman hate Sarah Palin. Because, what, she's a soccer mom, she goes hunting, she's playing with her kids. What? Don't you have some help to do that? She's probably smells like baby vomit. You know, that kind of a thing. That's where David Letterman is. They all sit around and at cocktail parties and they all... so now I'm hoping that this is the new Sarah Palin because I don't know if anybody has really truly talked about how Sarah Palin eviscerated David Letterman, eviscerated him. She took a scalpel and cut his heart out. It was still beating in her hand when he was like, "You know, and another thing about how stupid and slutty you are..." he didn't even see it coming. And the reason why I say she eviscerated it, it's one thing to say, hey, don't make fun of my daughter, which she's completely in the right to do. I mean, where was the when the press started asking Barack Obama and taking pictures and he was like, "Hey, back off. It's my private time with my kids." Nobody invades that. Do you know they are closing down streets now every time his daughters go back in the backyard and play? Do you know that? They close the street. Do I have a problem with that? No. None at all. Leave the children alone. I don't want those kids growing up to be in a zoo where people are watching them or some freak is out there with a camera. And when I say freak, I mean paparazzi or anything. Don't leave kids out of it. But that's not what she did. The one thing that could be said about David Letterman that I believe all of us know to be true is and we don't know this. You never know, but I think it's a pretty good guess. He is not a pervert. He is not preying on your children. Stu is looking at me like, well, we don't have evidence of that. Do you think he is looking at pictures of 14 year olds?

STU: I mean, I have no reason to believe that.

GLENN: Correct.

STU: But I have no reason to not believe that.

GLENN: Correct, correct, correct. But if we're going to be the typical people that we are and that Sarah Palin is, you'd have no reason to believe that David Letterman is looking at, you know, bad pictures of 14 year olds.

STU: Right. He's not a criminal in this. Most likely with David Letterman was he didn't even know.

STU: I don't know that you can say that's most likely. I don't think I can give you most likely.

GLENN: Highly likely?

STU: I would say no, I would not say most likely. I would say it's possible. It's possible he didn't know.

GLENN: What you know about David Letterman, he is a bad human being. He is just not nobody likes working with him.

STU: I've heard that, yes. From many people.

GLENN: From many, many people. Not a decent human being.

STU: But I mean, that's hearsay. I've heard it from people who

GLENN: From people who worked with him for a very long time.

STU: Wasn't my first

GLENN: Okay. So the hearsay is bad guy, really a nasty dude. And also the comedy writing scenario over there is everybody just passes notes, nobody's in a room working together. There is no talking there. It's a nasty situation. You get the cards to him. He reads them in rehearsal and that's it. So it's not like he was sitting around going, "Hey, you know what will be funny is if..." he most likely it was written he saw it in the monologue prompter and it was like, "Okay, fine." Whether he knew it was the 14 year old daughter or not, and this so you know, this point is really meaningless because, "Oh, so it was the daughter that was four years older? Sure, she's legal but still it's a 14 year old daughter."

STU: Again I won't give you most likely on that. I think there's a very significant chance that he believed it would be funny because it's Sarah Palin and he hates her that it would be funny to say, you know what, his whole family is a bunch of sluts. I do think that he would think that.

GLENN: And, you know, he wasn't necessarily envisioning the 14 year old. It was just

STU: Again I

GLENN: Okay, all right, I'll give that to you, that's fine. I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Either way it doesn't excuse it. But what she did is she came out and instead of saying leave my daughters alone, she immediately went for something that is a scalpel, which is you're a dirty old man, a 60 year old making saying sexual comments about a 14 year old. Immediately galvanized against David Letterman, immediately. There's no ifs, ands or buts about it. It's just need Galvanization.

STU: There's no doubt about who won that battle.

GLENN: She did, his beating heart. Yeah, well, you're just a slutty... and didn't even see it being taken out of his chest. And he was so slow, he didn't even see it coming out of his chest the next day and that's where he really went wrong. I think if he would have said, Sarah Palin, you know, we make fun of everybody, I certainly didn't know it was your 14 year old daughter and it was probably over the line even if it wasn't your 14 year old daughter, and I apologize. I think America would have forgiven him. I think America would forgive him.

STU: Again it's possible to make a mistake. That's what makes you think maybe it wasn't, especially when you put a picture up there.

GLENN: And I'm torn on this because I don't want a joke czar.

STU: No.

GLENN: I don't want a joke czar.

STU: Nope.

GLENN: I don't want anybody telling people what they can and can't say, I don't want David Letterman fired for it. I don't want boycotts of David Letterman. I would, however, like a little bit of consistency from CBS. They fired Don Imus over a comment that he made about a comment about a basketball team, you don't know the specifics of anybody and that was the worst thing that anybody has ever said at any time including, kill them all and let God sort them out. It was the worst thing uttered ever. And David Letterman says this about a specific family with a picture, and CBS signs him to a new contract. Now, what Sarah Palin has done is she has demonstrated only to those who care to see and nobody in the mainstream media will see. She has demonstrated, "Oh, really? I could play that game, too." She just took out a comedian. Now, unlike with the with Al Sharpton who pickets and then all of a sudden they find themselves out of a job, I don't agree with that. I don't agree with picketing and then the company fires them and everything else. That kind of pressure is wrong. You've let the people vote with the ratings, and they are going to do that. You mark my words. David Letterman has made a has staked out a position here that unless he changes courses, he is going to be, well, at CBS. He is going to be Katie Couric. They are going to be perfect bookends for the CBS lineup. Katie Couric, all the liberals love her. All the people in these people's circle are on, you got it, Dave, you took her out. You stand strong, Dave. All the regular people, A, don't want you to treat her that way, even if they disagree with her. You don't treat somebody like that.

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.
