The discriminated have become the driscriminators

To prove that women are powerless, 5,000 feminists created the world's first major music festival for women, non-binary and transgender people, in Sweden, a country that prides itself for having a feminist government, and by the end of it men were being forced into "man pens," and somehow it's not discrimination. Well, it turns out that it is discrimination, legally. I'll break it down more here in a minute...

From the start, the festival discriminated against men, on purpose, even the name confirms this. "STATEMENT Festival." You know, it's not about music, it's about making "a statement" something about how men use the patriarchy to discriminate against women.

These were the rules: No men allowed. Well, trans-men were okay, because they were born a woman even though they identify as men. Oh and biological men who were men but who now consider themselves women were allowed too. But no cis-gender men. Because cisgender men discriminate against women, trans women, and transmen. It's mind-numbing, I know.

At the festival, any cis-gender men who showed up, including staff and performers, were restricted to certain areas called "man pens," like "pig pens." What we have here is an actual slippery slope. It starts with identity politics in feminism and things get more and more slippery until men are literally being thrown in cages like animals.

Here's a dilemma: What stopped men at the festival from saying, "I'm a woman." If gender really is as fluid as they're portraying it, how are they able to determine whether the "men" they put in cages weren't actually women?

How are they able to determine whether the "men" they put in cages weren't actually women?

When news first broke about the "no man" festival everyone just assumed it would be yet another example of the left enjoying double standards. They throw a fit, then they get what they want. They pull stunts that conservatives would never be allowed to so much as mention and get away with it. Especially in Sweden, where there's an entire government agency called Discrimination Ombudsman which is "tasked with supervising the laws relating to discrimination on sex, transgender identity or expression, ethnicity, religion or other belief, disability, sexual orientation or age."

The feminists behind "STATEMENT" "no-man" festival were so confident that they would get their way that they had next year's lineup ready to go. So it's a little ironic that the Discrimination Ombudsman, a feminist government agency has determined that the "STATEMENT festival" violated the exact discrimination laws that they have always used to their benefit. STATEMENT 2019 was cancelled.

It's a dilemma that feminists have no answer for, just like Marxists don't have an answer, because it's a Marxist idea. What happens when postmodern feminists take all the power away from "the patriarchy"? Once they redistribute that power, where will it go? They take it. Then, they get authoritarian. Which is how you get a "feminist" music festival that actually is anti-feminism because it's so anti-equality. They literally had rules about who could attend, and they were based on gender. How many times do we have to prove that this system doesn't work?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
