Transactivism has devolved into bullying and intimidation

We've seen a sudden change over the past few years. It started with non-gender bathrooms and escalated into the baffling enigma that we see intensify daily. It may not surprise you that a group of "radical feminists" are blaming it all on men. I'll explain in a minute.

Previous data estimated 3-in-1,000 Americans to be transgender. That number has doubled in the past 10 years. Why? Why is it that every mainstream news article is telling parents that every child should transition? Because that's not actually what the science says. And it wasn't as mainstream an idea as it is now.

Transactivists have been known to swarm, to attack en masse, even going after ostensible allies, as seen by their disdain for TERFs (trans-exclusionary radical feminists). That's right. The radical leftist trans activists hate the radical left feminists.

So much so that the term "TERF" is considered hate speech.

Well, Kara Dansky is a TERF. In fact, she's the spokeswoman for Women's Liberation Front (WoLF). And she thinks that transgender activism is a "men's rights."

She said:

This is a men's rights movement — this is really a men's rights movement. Overwhelmingly women have been resisting this. And it's really shocking how many men on the internet are defending the whole trans thing. Straight men are all about the trans, and you have to wonder what the heck is going on.

TERFs believe that gender is a social construct assigned at birth and used to oppress women, therefore, trans women are not in fact women, and, by insisting otherwise, are in fact flexing their male privilege over women).

Transgender activists are the most problematic part of it all. They are vicious and intimidating. While transgender rights have been positive for many people, the result of legitimate progress, transactivism itself all too often devolves into the very bullying it claims to oppose. And it is by nature impossible to challenge.

Transgender activists are the most problematic part of it all. They are vicious and intimidating.

Here's a quote from a prominent trans-activist:

Nearly all anti-trans scientific claims are unsound, outright false, or plainly misleading, including those made by the foremost voices of public transphobia.

This absolutist rhetoric leaves no room for discussion. Anyone who disagrees is automatically guilty of "public transphobia," or even hate speech.

Here's where things get a little complicated. Because radical feminists actually side with conservatives on this point.

Kara Dansky again:

I got kicked off of the Baltimore mayor's LGBTQ commission — as the only lesbian — simply for stating biological facts. I was found guilty of 'violence.' My crime? Using male pronouns to talk about a convicted male rapist who identifies as transgender and prefers female pronouns. It doesn't matter that he sexually assaulted two women in a women's prison after being transferred there on account of his 'gender identity.' Oh no, it is far more criminal for me to call a male rapist 'he' than it is for him to rape.

In the last three years alone, the LGBT rights movement has launched millions of Americans straight up Maslow's hierarchy of needs. In that time, as if overnight, the LGBT+ movement has also flourished into an array of separate causes, becoming, for some, an at-times overwhelmingly new part of the mainstream. The concept of gender fluidity alone has sent many heads into orbit, partly because there's often an academic tone to the activism that many people aren't used to or don't care for.

On "Glenn TV" this week, Megyn Kelly, host of the "Megyn Kelly Show," told Glenn Beck she believes the Democrats' talk of unity is "all nonsense" and forecasted the "death of journalism" under a Biden administration.

Megyn cited President Joe Biden's unwillingness to make concessions that would help unify Democrats and Republicans as an example of how much he actually cares about unity, and added that, while she's all for lowering the political temperature in America, she also believes there are some personal freedoms that are worth fighting for.

"What's happening substantively is worth fighting for and it's not going to go away just because [Biden] gave a nice speech," Megyn said.

"I will object. I will protect my family and what I think is right over Joe Biden's need for unity, which is false anyway. 'Unify behind my agenda' is not a real call for unity," she added.

Megyn said she believes the Left has reached too far and "awakened a sleeping giant" in reference to the silent majority who should speak up, speak out, and refuse to be silenced any longer.

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.
