Is it time for Father Christmas to have a gender-neutral makeover?

As if we needed any more reminders that a vocal minority of the population abhors tradition and traditional values, a recent survey has been heralded as a takedown of Santa Claus' gender. Yes, they're upset about Santa's gender. We'll start there in one minute.

Logo-making company GraphicSprings surveyed 400 people across the U.S. and U.K, between ages 18 and 65+, "asking them how they would 'rebrand' or modernize the jolly fellow," then a further 4,000 people were surveyed on broader questions.

According to the survey:

About 23 percent of respondents think Santa should have an iPhone, while 25 percent said Saint Nicholas should wear sneakers or trainers. Eighteen percent said he should be 'more hipster,' while 22 percent said he should ditch the sleigh and reindeer for a flying car.

And here's the real kicker: 17% of respondents believe that Santa should be gender neutral, while 10% think that Santa should change genders entirely.

By all accounts the survey seems like a joke, or rather, the people who were surveyed seem to have treated it like it was a joke.

By all accounts the survey seems like a joke, or rather, the people who were surveyed seem to have treated it like it was a joke, unless 25% of the population really believe that Santa should become vegan. Highly doubtful. Also, roughly 70% of the people surveyed were men, while a whopping 15% to 18% classified themselves as "gender neutral," which, it goes without saying, is completely disproportionate to the actual percentage of both communities in the actual population. It also seems dubious that the percentage of people who believe that Santa should be gender neutral matches the percentage of surveyed people claiming "gender neutral" status.

Although, if this thing is for real, we've got a strange future ahead of us, and that seems more likely by the day.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
