TriBeCa Film Festival to award Glenn as Disruptive Innovator of the Year

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Glenn’s basketball skills may have proved to be disappointing, but he is being recognized by a prestigious event that takes place in New York City every year: the TriBeCa Film Festival.

No, this is not a parody post. Later this month, Glenn will be awarded the TriBeCa Film Festival’s Disruptive Innovator of the Year award. Pretty impressive, right?

“The TriBeCa Film Festival is huge,” Pat noted. “Who have been some of the other disruptive winners?”

This year, the other disruptive innovator is the guy who did Gangnam Style. Among last year’s winners was Justin Bieber, who won the award for his use of social media.

“You are changing the way things are done,” Stu explained of the award. “You’re disrupting the normal processes with innovation.”

“With innovation…so you’re not being a revolutionary and destroying other people. You’re disrupting the normal flow because you’ve innovated and made something better. And so they believe that we may change television and the way it’s being done because we are disrupting the big studios and the big television networks, we’re disrupting through our innovation and so the TriBeCa film festival is giving me that award,” Glenn added.

If you’re thinking, “giving Glenn Beck an award at the TriBeCa Film Festival can’t be the most popular thing they’ve ever done,” you’d be right.

Glenn explained that they called him before giving the award because it was going to be controversial. The award is called the Charles Darwin Award, so they thought Glenn might get too much flack.

“I’m like, I don’t really care. Sure, I mean, I think it’s great. I’m honored. The reason why it’s the Charles Darwin Award is because survival of the fittest.  I believe in the survival of the fittest,” Glenn said.

“At least in business,” Stu responded.

Glenn added that he believes in survival of the fittest in business and humans, but he also believes in taking care of the elderly, the handicapped, and those who can’t help themselves. But what’s ironic is that the people who claim to believe in evolution so much, don’t practice survival of the fittest — they’re opposed to it, at least in practice.

“I don’t believe that we just keep passing you in grade after grade after grade,” Glenn said.

He went on to add that the failing banks should be allowed to fail. If people don’t feel pain in their own lives or when they’re businesses aren’t doing well, no one will ever learn — people will not learn from their mistakes.

If Glenn had never been allowed to fail, he wouldn’t be in the position he is now to receive this award.

“So thank you TriBeCa Film Festival,” Glenn said. “…It’s an honor, and I appreciate it.”

    Hypocritical little bitch.
    All Glenn Beck does is bitch about NY and make up stories about his family being attacked.
    Now he gets an award and he is all sweet.
    What a fake!!!

    Remember Breitbart and if you attend, don’t eat anything at the festival. It’s nice to be recognized, but you’ve been a popular hero for millions from the moment you began speaking the truth. Truth these days is more valuable than a rare gem.

    good for you Glenn . . . give ’em hell . . . these liberal turds need a dose of their own medicine (ie occupy wallstreet) . . . 

  • Walter Moser

     Fake libertarian Beck supported the neocons back then and hes still a neocon shill.
