Not Watching

GLENN: Putting the radio back into Radio City, hello, you sick twisted freak. Welcome to the program. My name is Glenn Beck. From the frozen, snowy northern hitherland. My goodness, we've got -- they are saying now maybe 12 inches of snow. And let me tell you something. There is nothing better than anywhere from one to 12 inches of snow in the Manhattan area. It doesn't affect traffic or people at all. It's fantastic. But the good news is now we can be trapped into our homes and into apartments all through the weekend so we can just, we can have anticipation build for the Oscars. I don't know about you, but I'm not going to watch the Oscars. So there you go.



Celebrate the Oscars by purchasing our exclusive, 'Michael Moore is Fat' t-shirt!

Did you see that Michael Moore is, you know, debating on who he's going to take to the Oscars? I told you yesterday he was thinking -- you know, he said, "It would really cause a lot of controversy if I brought Castro." Yes, I guess it would. It's like Steven Spielberg. "Wouldn't it be great if I showed up, give my award for Schindler's List if I could just bring Hitler. Wouldn't that be great?" Oh. You know what, I haven't -- and maybe it's just me. I don't think it is. Have movies gotten worse? Are we just onto Hollywood? Is it that we expect to be preached at in Hollywood? Is that what it is? I don't know. I just don't go to the movies anymore. And I used to -- I was a guy who used to go to two movies on a Saturday. I love movies. I just don't see them anymore. I don't know what it is. What was that, Charlie Wilson's War? I can't tell you how many people said, oh, you've got to go see Charlie Wilson's War. You'll love it. No, no, uh-uh, not going to see it. And I know now from friends who have seen it, it has nothing to do with the war, it's not preachy at all, I just don't trust it. What is it, there will be blood? Oh, it's about the evil oil companies? Supposed to be great. I just don't really want to see anything Hollywood made about evil oil companies. You know what I mean? It's like, honestly it's like expecting, you know, the American people to go out and see movies done by Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity. I mean, there will be a certain population that will go but not really. I mean, you know what I mean? It's from one point of view. Unfortunately unlike those movies, these movies that they're making are so wildly out of step with the average person in America. Nobody -- who wants to go see that? I swear to you. And even the advertisements. The advertisement, the way they -- what was the movie that came out? Was it Charlie Wilson's War? Stu, do you remember? What was the movie that came out? I think it was Charlie Wilson's War that was so misadvertised that it just seemed like, oh, no. It's a propaganda movie.

STU: You might be right on that. I thought it was one of Chris Balfe's, I think saw Michael Clayton and was talking about it like that which was the George Clooney flick.

GLENN: Yeah. And what was it, what was the message in that? And he said that it was the -- he said, I saw that -- I just didn't want to see it because it was a message movie and as it turns out, it's not a message movie. But it's got George Clooney in it. It's got to have a message in it. You know, we're working on our Christmas stage show and we have a Broadway director that we're trying to do work with and my daughter was just in a play, Stephen Sondheim play and, you know, she was in it, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. We went to it and I was talking to this director and he said, what play was she in? And I told him and he said, oh, I hate that play. And I said, really? And he said, yes, I don't understand it. And I said, what do you mean? And he said, what's the message behind it? And I'm like, boy, we're talking to the wrong director. I said, what do you mean what's the message behind it? He said, what does this represent? What does that represent? What is the message behind it? And I said, that's why I love this play. There were no messages. I have no idea if there was a message in it and if it was a message, I think I kind of agree with it. Stop with the messages. Oh, it drives me crazy. And so you watch these things. They even -- it's almost like they're intentionally trying to sabotage themselves. Were you watching these? You know it's like if they remade movies now, you know, they would position them in such a way -- okay, try this on for size. "The two biggest issues in America today collide together for the first time on the big screen: Global warming and healthcare. You'll be gripping the edge of your seat as you take a journey with one Midwestern woman's wild escape from global warming as she flees into exile and meets up with three amazing friends with one common plight: They all need medical care and organs to survive. But a struggle to live without any universal healthcare coverage. Will a Democrat get elected in time to give them universal healthcare? Will the Government help and stop tornadoes caused by global warming, or will the evil Republicans give tax credits to the wealthiest 1% and let them all die? See the Wizard of Oz." That's the way they would do it. Now it would be -- now you would watch the Wizard of Oz and the wizard would be something, you know, some evil Republican who had never any intention of helping these people. He hates little people. The Government, he would just be taking all the money for himself. The tin man and the scarecrow, it would all represent some sort of universal health coverage.

Do you have any music? Because I've got a couple of these. Do you have any music? Roll it if you have it, Dan.

STU: Hold on one second. We're having a tech problem as usual.

GLENN: That is the crappiest network show ever. Has anybody -- have we reminded anyone that we're a network show? Oh, and you know what? I just forgot. We're number 3. Number 2 tries harder. Number 3 stinks.

STU: Yeah, number 2 and number 1, they have all their stuff totally working.

GLENN: All right. Do we have that computer working? Otherwise we're just going to move on.

STU: Yeah, he's loading it right now on computer Number 19. We're going to try it.

GLENN: Computer Number 19. What happened to it?

STU: It's magical.

GLENN: Here we go. Are you ready? Go ahead.

VOICE: Power-seeking politicians have no mercy when it comes to starting war for oil, but what happens when technology expands beyond the atmosphere, when space travel is as easy as activating the hyperdrive? The endless potential for power and control of the universe becomes too much for evil politicians to resist. Entire planets are destroyed. Billions of lives are lost, and military industrial complex rules the universe. This summer see Star Wars.

GLENN: Huh? Now how much do you want to see "Star Wars"?

STU: That worked perfectly, I think.

GLENN: Never! Try this one. Go ahead with it.

VOICE: When giant bank corporations have their backs up against the wall, they don't take it lying down. Follow one good local man's journey as he's forced by an evil corporation to jump off a snowy bridge and kill himself, only to have an angel save him and show him how horrible the world would be without him. If only everyone who was forced to commit suicide because of an evil giant corporation had an angel, which by the way don't exist -- save their life. See It's a Wonderful Life.

STU: I think they should have mentioned the sub prime crisis in there. That's the only thing.

GLENN: "You're losing your house. One man doesn't care." Try this one. "A common species with one uncommon characteristic, a tiny little difference in pigmentation has caused a world of hate. This winter don't miss the film that challenges conventional wisdom and shows black and white working together with all the gray areas in between. See Casablanca." All right, that's really only there because there's hate in it and it is black and white.

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.
