Time Magazine on Glenn Beck: The Fears of a Clown

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) had a tense interview with Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Monday over claims she "caved to the NCAA." Rather than signing a bill that would have banned transgender girls and women from competing against biological females in sports, Noem returned it to the legislature for "style and form" changes, arguing to Carlson the current version "wouldn't solve the problem."

Noem joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to defend her decision, saying conservatives must be "strategic" in the fight to defend Title IX, which is why she's formed national coalition to do just that.

"When have you ever known me to cave, Glenn? I didn't go through this whole last year, being the only one to keep my state open in the entire nation, to fight for what was right, and have everybody piling on, to cave on something like this," Noem asserted. "So, I'm trying to be smart and solve a problem. And I think a lot of times, we get bullied. We get bullied by the Left, but the Right can bully, too. And they're not looking at the facts. So in this situation, the coalition that I'm forming is to go after the NCAA. They have been bullying states for a long time with their policies by forcing us to allow men to participate in women's sports.

"I'm a small state. South Dakota is small," she continued. "We have to fight hard to even get any tournaments or games in the state of South Dakota. And I recognize the NCAA can come in and crush me, and can make an example out of me, and point to South Dakota and say, 'See, no other state better challenge us whatsoever.' So that's why I'm trying to be smart about this and build a coalition of athletes, of states, of governors, of attorneys generals, and show the NCAA that we're going to fight to make sure that only girls can play in girls' sports."

"We have to stand and up defend the rights that we have, and the federal law that we have in place, that women are women and only women should play in women's sports. And we can do that in a way that picks a fight — and fails — or we can do it in the smart way, and build momentum, so that we can actually win," Noem explained, adding that she's been fighting this issue "for years" now.

"If people would do their homework for once, and go back and look, [they would see that] years ago, I fought the USDA and the federal government when they were trying to force rodeos to let boys into girls' events and to make girls participate in boys' events. And I fought them alone. And got South Dakota to be able to still keep boys' and girls' events separated," she added. "So there there's no gray area for me on this. I've proven myself for years on this issue. And I'll continue to do this, regardless of who decides that they want to try to attack me and bully me."

University of Vermont psychotherapy professor Aaron Kindsvatter is facing backlash from students calling for his resignation after he posted a video on YouTube titled, "Racism and the Secular Religion at the University of Vermont." But Kindsvatter isn't backing down.

Kindsvatter joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to explain just how dangerous critical race theory is to our society. Specifically, he explained, critical race theory has "frightening" effects on the mental health of our kids — both white children and children of color.

"Children need a particular environment in which to flourish, and it's an environment where no conditions are placed upon their sense of self-worth," Kindsvatter said. "You don't convey to a child that they are good or bad based on what they do. And this ideology [critical race theory], and in particular Kendi's version of antiracism, establishes very strict parameters of viewing one's self and other people as other good or evil — but in Kendi's language, he's using the terms 'racist' or 'antiracist'."

Kindsvatter warned that this type of "crude and destructive" thinking will not remain focused on "whiteness," but will (and in many ways already is) be used to manipulate any group or individual that doesn't conform to their ideology.

"It is saying that, in order to be an acceptable person, you must first claim fealty to this ideology," Kindsvatter said. "And I would just add to that, children of color ... they are not safe from this either. Because if they don't toe this line, then ... there are lots of interesting names that are being created within academia for them. The one that I've just heard recently, that's come out, is 'multi-racial whiteness.' And it's a way to take a person of color, or a black person, and say, 'well, you're just white,' which is meant to be an insult from that perspective."

"So, this conversation can get derailed by thinking of this in terms of a 'white thing' or a 'black thing," he continued. "What this really is, is it's a racist thing. It's racism. And racism is contagious. All it needs is a foothold in an air of legitimacy, and then it will flow out into society and be adopted widely, to the detriment of every person. And the University of Vermont, right now, is ... presenting this as a form of intellectual refinement. And, right now, it gains legitimacy."

President Joe Biden is finally about to end his 100-year record by holding a press conference on March 25, his 64th day in office.

Bill O'Reilly joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to predict how reporters within the White House press corps will handle the big event. Will they make deals with the president's communications team? Will they challenge the president on misleading answers, or will they give him any kind of pushback at all?

Up to 3,000 migrants from the U.S.-Mexico border — teenage boys age 15-17 — are moving to the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas "within the week," says Dallas County Commissioner for District 2, J.J. Koch. But just who approved this plan?

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) didn't, and the city government kicked the responsibility to convention center management. Is it possible the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) intentionally sidestepped the GOP governor because of political animosity?

Koch joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Thursday to provide the details he knows so far. Glenn asked Koch if it's possible that FEMA and the Biden administration made these arrangements without even notifying county, city, or state level authorities.

"Technically, they can do that, but functionally, as a matter of working with your partners and actually getting stuff done, you never do that. You don't blow past your county folks, your city folks, and you most certainly don't blow past your partners at the state level. I mean, I don't care how acrimonious a relationship is between a governor's office and that of the presidency, if you're bringing in FEMA, this is an emergency. This is something that we're saying is important. So if it's that important, you sure as heck have to get it right by having all the people at the table to make it work," Koch answered.

"But they're not interested in making it work," he added. "They get their feel-good sugar rush. They let the people in, and do all the things the liberals love -- and [say] you know what, Texas, you'll just have to clean up the mess."

Glenn asked whether the city of Dallas would have allowed a private hotel to host a group of 3,000 people who may or may not have the coronavirus, noting in particular that the city has arrested numerous business owners for violating COVID-19 restrictions.

"I know for a fact the answer is no, because they were pushing back against having the Republican National Convention here for three days," Koch replied. "They were doing everything they could to let folks know that if the convention had to be moved, it was not going to come to Dallas. Dallas was going to try everything they could to stop that from happening. So the hypocrisy was just astounding."
