‘SO BRAVE’: Listen to THIS woman of color REFUTE her haters

‘SO BRAVE’: Listen to THIS woman of color REFUTE her haters

When Ryan Webb noticed how many straight, white men he was serving with on the Delaware County, Indiana Council, he knew something needed to change. That’s when he dove deep into his heart and his feelings and realized he was actually a woman of color — and a lesbian, too! He joins Glenn in this clip to describe that moment of realization, and he also shares a POWERFUL message for those who claim he’s just identifying this way to make a point about far-left woke-ness: ‘My understanding is that [we’re] not allowed to question someone’s gender identify…’

GLENN: Can we talk about something else for just a second?

You know, it's time that we start talking about heroes. Good things.

For instance, did you know the trans identified male, has just won first place in the women's cycling tour?

Did you know that?

STU: No. Congratulations!

GLENN: Yes. She -- he -- they won. They won.

STU: They won!

GLENN: Taking first place. The first female with junk in her pants, taking first place.

And I -- hats off.

Also, there's a bearded man, who claims to be a woman.

But doesn't do anything go.

Just still looks like a man. But he's a good-looking woman, if he would throw some makeup on. You know, spend five minutes in front of the mirror, dude.

Anyway, he just won. Yeah. Another winner. The women's poker tournament.

He just won. So you have that. So this is good for women. This is good for women. Now, a lot of people might take this as being sarcastic. But there is a guy in Delaware County. Delaware County, Indiana county, councilman. He's Ryan Webb.

And he is the first Republican local councilman, to come forward as a lesbian woman of color. And, Ryan, hats off to you.

RYAN: Well, good morning, sir, I appreciate the invitation. And thank you for the recognition. Thank you.

GLENN: Sure, sure. Now how long have you been contemplating this transition to a woman?

RYAN: Well, I'm not really sure how long I have been contemplating it. You know, I've felt this way for quite a long time. And just really wasn't sure the right time to do it.

But as with each passing day, it's become more and more socially acceptable, and the rules have -- have become engrained and set in stone, as such, that someone such as myself, who has no real ambition to actually live life as a woman. However, knows that in my heart, that I am a woman. I thought this was the right time for me to go ahead and announce that that's the way I choose to self-identify.

GLENN: I think that's great.

You did say in your Facebook post, that you noticed that there wasn't any LGBTQ representation on the council board. And you are the first woman of color too. What color are you?

RYAN: Well, I appreciate you saying that. And I get noticed that. And I thought, we just need a little bit diversity. We had way too many straight white men on the council.

And I thought, you know, we can do something about this. To answer what my heritage is.

I have Cherokee, Native American on both sides. I'm very proud of that, and which qualifies me as the woman of color that I am.

GLENN: Oh, so you're not just -- you're not just a white guy, that is -- that is now saying, I identify as a woman of color?

You're actually, I mean, we could -- in the old days, I would say, scientifically show that your bloodline has Cherokee in it.

RYAN: Oh, yeah. Fully backed up with the documents of ancestry.com. Shout out to them.

But, yeah. That's a fact.

GLENN: So now you say, you are excited to be a vocal partner of the LGBTQQIAPC++ movement. And just how far can we take things?

You're glad that now anyone, just like you can be anything or anyone they want.

What are you -- how far do you want to take things?

RYAN: Well, you know, this whole journey of gender discovery and who you are.

I'm just riding the wave. And wherever it takes me, is where it goes. And I've said before, oftentimes with these things, they're very complex. Sometimes we end up where we started. But what I'm trying to do, as far as promote awareness in the community. There's a lot of bad information out there, from some of these folks as being intolerant and hateful. And I want to show the world, that some of us are pretty down to earth and sensible people, and not all crazy.

GLENN: Right. Okay. Have you had your first period yet?

RYAN: Well, I had something going on the other day, but I wouldn't classify it as that. I think I just had a little bit of indigestion.

GLENN: Okay. All right. Well, be prepared.

You should -- talk to your -- are you married?

RYAN: I am, yes. I have a wife, brandy. Beautiful wife brandy. We have six kids. And she's currently excited about the new designation of not only being married to a woman of color, but celebrating our diversity as an interracial couple.

GLENN: Yeah. Now, she is excited that you are now identifying as a woman?

RYAN: Well, you know what, she stands behind me, and everything that comes with it. She's been sitting and watching everything that happens like everyone else.

She's not naive to the benefits that come with a woman of color. So we're hoping our kids will be accepted to some colleges that they previously have not able to.

So the sky is the limit. So she's excited about that.

GLENN: Right. And she's identifying now as a lesbian.

RYAN: Well, she's not necessarily changed her identity. I don't think she can argue the point if that's what she is. She's allowed me to go on my journey. And her journey takes her wherever she needs to go.

GLENN: Right. And you are a lesbian though. You'll only sleep with women?

RYAN: I would say so. And I could also prove that, if anyone doesn't believe.

I'm very affectionate with my wife in public. I have more than stood on my own 2 feet with that statement.

GLENN: You know, a lot of people, Ryan.

We're talking to Ryan Web. He's a local Republican councilman, who has just come out as a lesbian woman of color. And the first one on the council.

And that was very brave of you.

So hats off on just your bravery.

A lot of people would say, that you are making fun of wokeness, and the fact that men will always be men, and not women. Is there any truth to that?

RYAN: Well, those allegations have been made. Now, I wouldn't make those allegations, I'm not saying that. In fact, I don't know what rule book they're reading from. But my understanding is that we weren't allowed to question someone's gender identity. It's simply declaring it.

If so, you may as well write it in read. I'm not necessarily making fun of anyone.

I'm just expressing how I'm changing to live my life, within the boundaries and rules, that are set by in society. And pass the test. So they can say that all they want.

But I don't need their confirmation, or their affirmation, or any of the ations. I'm living my own life.

GLENN: All right. Ryan, again, we salute you as a very brave, brave. It is hard in these days to come out, on something, you know, like this.

And stand there.

All alone, surrounded by all of the real power in society.

You know, holding your hand. And propping you up.

And give you all kinds of benefits. And that's a scary place to be.

RYAN: Well, you are correct with that.

And in the beginning, some folks didn't know how to take it.

Some were upset. But as the days went on. I've been receiving a lot of support.

To be honest, Glenn, the local leftists in my community, they're the ones who insisted on making this story a national story. Me personally, I would like to focus more on the important things that we're doing on the council, such as increasing transparency, and increasing the wages for all of our county employees.

Unfortunately, this is what we're talking about. It's a really sad situation.

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah. All right. Well, Ryan, you keep with your truth.


RYAN: All right. I appreciate that, Mr. Beck. I will. I will. Thank you very much.

GLENN: Thank you so much.

That's Ryan Web.

Delaware County, Indiana. County councilman. Brave.

STU: Very brave, to take a stance like that.

GLENN: Sincerely.

STU: And I know that they are going to be celebrated for this.

Because that's what our society does.

Well, I don't.

I appreciate that he's keeping his name.

Because I don't want to dead name anybody.

STU: Right.

GLENN: But who am I to question what he believes. What his truth is, and what his truth may not be.

STU: You just did three in a row. He, he, and his.

You are kidding me? That is disgusting.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. You are so brave.

STU: Thank you. I am.

I mean, going along with everybody who has any kind of power at all.

Just going along and sniffing their butt and holding their hand. And doing exactly what you're told. You are so brave.

STU: Thank you for affirming me.

Well, thank you for affirming. Well, you haven't yet. You haven't.

STU: I affirm you. I affirm thou.

GLENN: Wow. Thank you. Oh. I feel heard. And affirmed.

And just kind of -- I don't know.

Like it's my first day of being a girl.

STU: You know, you -- you pass -- you're very -- would make a very attractive female. Not that that is what your journey is right now.

GLENN: Not right now.

Let me tell you something, if I do become a girl, you damn better say, I'm not only a girl. But I'm a good looking girl.

STU: Oh, I will affirm the hell out of that.

GLENN: So thank you. I affirm you too.

See, this is how we all come together.

STU: This is the mutual affirmation society.

We just speak the truth, that our overlords demand that we speak. And we all get along.

STU: That's what we do. You have to say, what your truth is. And it becomes the truth.

With one exception. If someone says they're trans, and they commit a mass murder. Then it's totally okay to say, they were lying at the time. Any other instance, though, you must affirm what they say.

GLENN: And I would like to make another correction, and I hate to.

STU: Are you disaffirming?

GLENN: And I would hate to disaffirm.

But I think it's actually de-affirm.

STU: Okay. I'm sorry. How about de-firm?

GLENN: I hate to de-firm you.

But you said, we can say whatever. Your truth. And it is truth.

And that's not true. There is truth, Stu. And it's your truth, and it's my truth.

But there are some people that don't agree with that truth. That we're getting from the experts. And those people should be shut up, you know. Because they're not brave. They're Nazis.

STU: No. We de-firm them.

GLENN: We de-firm. Thank you. All right.

Hey, I think we just solved another problem.

Why Conservatives Need 'Indoctrination Centers' | Liz Wheeler | The Glenn Beck Podcast | Ep 196

Liz Wheeler, host of “The Liz Wheeler Show,” wants everyone to know that our children are being attacked by “forces of Marxism.” It’s NOT an exaggeration, and her new book, “Hide Your Children: Exposing the Marxists Behind the Attack on America’s Kids,” shows exactly how the far Left has the nation’s youngest citizens in its crosshairs — especially within America’s public schools. In this episode of “The Glenn Beck Podcast,” Wheeler joins Glenn to outline exactly where these attacks are taking place. Plus, they discuss why Planned Parenthood recently has become a major force in the trans rights movement, the woke villainization of white, Christian men, and the biggest misconceptions regarding AI (artificial intelligence).

GOP & Fox News Are DEAD: Glenn Beck Reacts to 'WORST' Presidential Debate | Glenn TV | Ep 307

Were there ANY winners at the second GOP presidential debate hosted by Fox Business and Univision? Glenn calls it “the worst debate of my lifetime” and reveals who was the REAL loser. BlazeTV hosts Stu Burguiere, Steve Deace, and Pay Gray join with their raw reactions to candidates North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, and former Vice President Mike Pence. All hosts agree the candidates failed to provide the conservative base with a real conversation, especially since many of the questions could have been asked by MSNBC. They also address the bizarre appearance of Fox moderator Dana Perino introducing Hillary Clinton at a recent Clinton Global Initiative Event. And what about the elephant NOT in the room? Was Donald Trump, who chose striking UAW workers over debating candidates, the only winner? With the leading GOP candidate facing 91 felony indictments, Steve Deace says, “This is how we do assassination in America today" and that it’s vital we choose a strong second-place nominee … FAST.

THESE are the parts of the government Glenn would LOVE to SHUT DOWN

THESE are the parts of the government Glenn would LOVE to SHUT DOWN

The United States is once again on the verge of a government shutdown, but should Congress cave and pass a continuing resolution to spend a lot more money and save us all ... or do we not need saving? Glenn reviews what would actually happen under a government shutdown and which agencies we should probably shut down anyways. Maybe we need "15 Days to Slow the Spending."


Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: All right. So here's what we have to do this weekend, beginning tonight at midnight, if we don't sign the CR, and continuing resolution, which will give just a buttload of money. Just keep spending, exactly like you were spending last year, and no real accountability for any of it.

And we have to add some more for a war.

If we don't sign that by tonight, we have to shut the government down. Pat Gray is joining us.

What will you do as of 12:01, tonight.

PAT: Well, Stu gave me a suggestion. Because I was confused what I would do when I came in. What am I going to do? What was your suggestion that I should do? Now, this is in the eventuality, of a government shutdown.

GLENN: Okay. Are you well read enough, to give a recommendation?

STU: I mean, I would be concerned if I was going to be held to some legal standard.

GLENN: Right. Because you're not not an expert.

STU: I'm not an expert. But I was thinking you could continue living your life exactly the same way.

GLENN: Okay.

PAT: Oh. Well, that's weird. What about the catastrophe that is -- what about that?

STU: Yeah. You would -- in this particular scenario. It's a fictional scenario, at some level.

GLENN: Okay. You're not a doctor. I think this is dangerous.

STU: What were the things you were going to do?

PAT: Do those things.

STU: The things you weren't going to do, don't do those.

PAT: It's crazy talk.

GLENN: All right. Hang on a second. Here's what's going to happen. Here's what's going to happen, okay? This is from the O and B. The Office of Management & Budget.

And they have now released the contingency plan.

So here's what's going to happen.

Now, please don't panic.

But economic indicators like the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the jobs report could -- could be delayed. This month.

PAT: Don't say that.


The federal mediation and conciliation service, which is charged with promoting labor management cooperation.

PAT: They'll still have that, right?

GLENN: Well, yes. Yes.

PAT: Good.

GLENN: However, they would have to cut back in its -- they won't close. But they'll have to cut back in some of the things they do.

And this all amid the strike with the auto workers.

PAT: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: What are the unions and the -- and the -- you know, the plants going to do? Without federal officials. They'll never be able to do anything.

PAT: No, they won't.

STU: And the thing is, we're so a used to high efficiency from the government. That when you lose that -- society --

PAT: It all goes sideways.

GLENN: Time to throw everyone a bone here, so you don't panic. The Federal Reserve activity will be unaffected. So they can still raise the interest rates on November 1st, no matter what happens.

PAT: Good.

STU: Great.

GLENN: The Federal Trade Commission, however, would stop the vast bulk of its competition and consumer protection investigation.

PAT: You can't be serious.

GLENN: I am serious.

They have -- the vast bulk of them, would just stop.

STU: So some of them would continue?

GLENN: Yes. Yes.

STU: But the vast bulk of them -- what percentage does that translate to?

GLENN: Don't know. Vast bulk.

This is from the O&B.

The Security and Exchange Commission, will not review or improve registrations from investment advisers, broker dealers, transfer agents, rating organizations. Investment companies. And municipal advisers.

They're not going to be able to -- if you try to register --

PAT: At the SECC.

GLENN: You won't -- you won't be able to do it.

STU: What is that? For a new fund? Or something? New rating. A two-week process probably?

PAT: What about the FDIC? Do you have information on the FDIC?

GLENN: No, they still do not have all of the -- they're scrambling for this information.

STU: They didn't see this coming.

GLENN: Now, again, to give you some good news.

The IRS has not released this plan for the potential shutdown. However, previous plans have said that the IRS would use funds from Joe Biden's Inflation Reduction Act.

STU: Oh, good.

GLENN: To keep employees paid and working.

PAT: Thank heaven.

GLENN: And the union representing the IRS workers are saying, new plans are being discussed, that would involve some furloughs. However, businesses and individuals, who requested that six-month extension for your tax return in April. You will still be required to file by April 16.

PAT: Well, of course, you would.

STU: Yeah. By what date? October 16th. I was going to say, I thought I had more time.

GLENN: Yeah. Emergency relief is going to be a problem. A shutdown would create increased risk, that FEMA, their relief funds, could be depleted.

So there's a risk, that their funds could be depleted. If large additional catastrophic disasters occur. During the shutdown.

STU: Now, of course, they would very easily pass funding for that almost immediately. But still, we should deny that that would happen.

We will deny that any of these people will get their money afterward.

We all know they will retroactively pay off all of this stuff anyway. It will be a vacation for many people.

PAT: They've already done that. For many people. So, yeah. Sure.

GLENN: For those of you concerned about, hey. What about my energy?

What about the environment?

This is what this Draconian shutdown is going to do.

PAT: Thank you, Republicans.

GLENN: The interior department, which does all of the designing for the Capitol building, and the interiors, and pick out the drapes.

Oh, no. Apparently, it doesn't do that. The department of interior, will retain limited discretion to use permits for energy projects on federal lands and waters, when user fees are attached.

So they'll -- they'll retain just limited discretion, to issue those permits. You know, for drilling, and things like that.

PAT: They don't have full discretion.

GLENN: No. Not during a shutdown.

PAT: During a shutdown. Oh, no.

GLENN: A funding lapse would paralyze -- to develop would require environmental analysis for all energy projects. Highways. And other infrastructure.

The EPA, may be able to continue some IRA-funded activities.

As well as other attempted works such as settlement-funded cleanup at some Superfund sites.

PAT: Let's hope that is the case.

GLENN: Now. The White House is warning, most EPA led inspections at hazardous waste sites, as well as drinking water at chemical facilities, it's got to stop.

PAT: Oh, wow.

GLENN: So your drinking water. Could go completely -- it will stop.

PAT: It will turn to mud this weekend.

GLENN: Well, by Sunday. Maybe Monday.

The Energy Information Administration, which publishes snapshots of the US oil inventory.

It will continue to collect and publish data on schedule. But they say, at least initially.

At least initially. Our nuke sites are going to be maintained. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, however, will stop all licensing of new nuclear facilities.

PAT: Oh, there's so many of those going up too.

Because, I mean, we did the last one in 1978. And bang.

GLENN: This is going to stop.

PAT: Well, there's no new ones.

GLENN: But it will stop.

STU: This was the week. This was the week it would happen.

PAT: And now, thanks to you, MAGA Republicans.

GLENN: Right. Now transportation and travel.

Travelers could face delays as air traffic controllers and transportation security administration officers.

PAT: That will continue.

GLENN: Will be working without pay.

PAT: But without pay.

GLENN: Yeah. So people will --

PAT: I mean, they really are not. They will be paid. Just maybe not time.

GLENN: Right. Which is a hassle.

PAT: It is a hassle. I won't deny that.

GLENN: It is a hassle. However, Amtrak, they will keep transporting those 12 passengers. They will just keep going.

PAT: Is Ange going to continue to tell stories, about how many miles Joe Biden has traveled on the train.

Will he be there? Even in death, as he was when he told the story to Joe Biden?

GLENN: I don't know.

Now, passport and Visas will still be issued.

PAT: I thought those would be delayed. But they're not going to?

GLENN: Efforts to defend the nation and conduct ongoing military operations, will continue.

PAT: Right.

STU: That's good.

GLENN: Burials and tours, at Arlington National Cemetery would continue.

STU: Did anybody doubt, they would stop burying the bodies.

They'll just pile up, until we open up the government.

GLENN: COVID-19, response research including vaccine and therapeutic development by the US government will continue.

PAT: Will continue.

GLENN: The National Institute of Health, might have to postpone clinical trials for diseases like cancer or Alzheimer's, according to the White House. So this may throw him from solving cancer.

We were so close to him coming through with his promise of curing cancer, but it's the damn Republicans.

STU: We can actually check that at any point. If you go to, HasJoeBidenCuredCancer.com.

GLENN: Can you check that real quick? We're really close.

STU: Has Joe Biden cured cancer?

No. Cancer still exists as of today.

GLENN: Food stamps for low income people. The disabled, and others could be delayed.

There's no excuse for that. There's no excuse for that.

That is just to trot out the downtrodden.

The people that just say, look at what's happening. If the IRS can stay open, food stamps can stay open. Social Security checks will be delivered. Applications for benefits processed. However, people will not be able to verify benefits or replace cards.

Most national parks will be closed. The Smithsonian and the National Gallery of Art may close.

PAT: Don't say that.

GLENN: Cemeteries. Monuments. Visitor centers. Worldwide housed under the American Battle Monuments submission, will close.

STU: So are they -- and you said the national parks will close.

That means that many of these open field areas, will -- will not be opened?

GLENN: Yeah. They will -- they will build some fences around those things.

STU: Are they -- we don't seem capable of building fences.

GLENN: They're closed.

But I will tell you, you know they're big on the blue.

They will just be -- I make sure you're out there.

And you enforce that law.

You have somebody coming into the national park.

We don't have bathrooms that are open.

No. What are they going to do, poop in the woods, what kind of animals do you think we are?

PAT: Well, we're animals that poop.

STU: Sometimes -- sometimes that works. At least for many, many centuries.

The Capitol Police will not get paid under this.

PAT: What!

STU: They will -- they will --

PAT: They're under assault again. Just as they were during the insurrection.

STU: By the same people. The extreme MAGA Republicans.

PAT: You're exactly right.

By the same people.

STU: Now they'll get their number later. But for now, they won't get paid.

Except, for them. Unlike thousands and thousands of other federal workers, they actually will still have to do a job.

Most of the federal workers that will get all their money and then not have to do their job for however long this takes.

Which is a terrible, terrible --

GLENN: Just -- I -- I am in. I am in.

I mean, I think we should take a vote, who wants to open it back up?

I think 15 days, to slow the curve of spending. Fifteen days. Let's just do that.

Let's meet again in 15 days. And see if we can open the government up.

STU: We probably --

GLENN: Well, we might. We might.

Fifteen days, to slow the curve of spending.

PAT: And then after that, 30 days are up. After 15, then the 30. We might need another 18 bucks after that.

GLENN: Well, I don't know -- I don't know if the government will survive that.

You know, it may not survive that. Of course, the American people did it for a year.

STU: Yeah, and they don't care about them surviving.

GLENN: No. Nobody really cared about them surviving.

STU: Can I also say too, we talk about these big government cuts that we should do. We think there are things to do, to make the government smaller, and more like it was supposed to be. You know, a limited government.

GLENN: Yeah. We're not talking about any of those, I want you to know.

STU: But maybe we are. You know, haven't they unintentionally identified all the cuts here. Haven't they just said, hey, whatever we're going to just stop doing, the unnecessary parts of the government that can just shut down.

GLENN: You mean those nonessential?

STU: Yeah. The nonessential stuff, we stop doing. And the essential stuff, we stop doing. And we'll go from there. We'll talk about, maybe we need to add this back in. Maybe we can get rid of this other thing.

But isn't that a good starting point? Whatever you say is nonessential, I promise you we should not be doing it.

GLENN: I'm not sure of that. I mean, you know, we're talking about --

STU: Really?

GLENN: Yeah.

We're talking about things like the interior department.

Just having limited discretion to issue permits.

STU: So there will be still issuing permits. But they will have limited vegetation.

Maybe we shouldn't be doing so much permitting. Maybe people should be able to do a lot of the things they want to do.

But if there are certain needs for certain permits. Then the limited permitting might just cover that.

GLENN: Well, you go ahead. While we're all drinking poison by next Wednesday.

Just from our tap, from our homes. While sludge, nuclear waste.

Syringes are pouring out from our kitchen sink.

PAT: So syringes might pour out of our taps?

GLENN: Yes. Yes.

STU: How do they get around the curves?

GLENN: Are you an expert?

STU: No.

GLENN: Are you a doctor?

STU: I'm not a doctor.

GLENN: I am. Let's move on. Very dangerous.

Keep going, Republicans. Keep going.

Do not buckle.
