Why does Glenn think Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ has “the answer”?

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes had a huge weekend at the box office – grossing over $73 million domestically. Unlike Noah (aka the “$100 million disaster”), Glenn had a chance to see the latest installment of the Planet of the Apes franchise and was quite impressed. On radio this morning, Glenn made some interesting connections between the film’s plot and today’s world.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

“This is one of the best sci-fi [movies] I have ever seen. It is really good. Really good,” Glenn said. “I’m not a fan of CGI now because everything is CGI, but the CGI is so good. I don’t know what’s real and what’s not. The apes look absolutely 100% real. You believe the apes are really apes the entire time… [And] the story is really good.”

While there is an underlying gun plot Glenn was less than thrilled about, he found the overall theme of the film to be surprisingly pertinent to what is going on in the world today. The apes and humans are initially at odds with one another, but, with time, they learn to coexist.

“[The apes] learn that not all the humans are bad. The same thing happens with the humans. The humans are realizing: Not all of us are good. There are those who want power on both sides. They just want killing. They want blood shed. They want revenge,” Glenn explained. “But not everybody does. In fact, most of them would just like to get along, just live side-by-side. It’s just those who want power and control. And they are the ones poisoning the minds of everybody.”

This theme of those in power wanting to garner more and more control, while the majority of people are simply looking to co-exist struck a chord with Glenn.

“So when I saw that, I thought to myself: This is the answer… This was the answer in World War II, when people were dehumanizing the Jews. You have to get to know a Jewish person,” Glenn concluded. “In Planet of the Apes… some are bad. Some are good. The solution is getting to know each other, to talk to each other again. We are being taught not to talk to each other again. We are being taught to hate each other, to blame each other.”

    I didn’t get the radio station changed to Laura Ingram fast enough today to avoid Glenn’s ignorant rant about America being bad for not “doing the right with the border invaders”. Was America good Glenn when we Bombed Dresden in WW2 and killed all those innocent children? How about those 2 nukes we dropped on those cities containing all of the babies and children? Was America good then Glenn? You are messed up and do not understand that nations are established by God and that they are there to defend even with lethal force the inhabitants of their countries.

  • landofaahs

    You miss the point. We were justified in doing what we did in WW2 and we are justified in using lethal force to secure our borders today. My point to the pinhead Glenn was that we killed children in ww2 and we were still “a good country” according to Glenn, so why would we not be now if we stop the invaders using deadly force today.

  • landofaahs

    I believe we were justified in WW2 because if not we would all be Nazi’s today and only God knows how many millions or billions more would have been exterminated in the name of purity.

  • BlueMN

    Questionable whether bombing those cities “saved” lives. The Japanese military was on the ropes, the Soviets were cutting through Manchuria at record breaking speeds and Hirohito’s advisors were already urging him to abdicate.

    Dresden was a city with virtually no military targets to speak of, it was a city of architecture and arts, often called “Florence on the Elbe” before the bombing. The bombing of civilians had the same effect on the Germans that the Blitz had on the British, it only steeled their resolve to fight on.

    Glenn is really risking his audience with his support for illegal aliens. Obama invited these illegals in with his executive amnesty order for young illegals.

    Had we not bombed Dresden, Nagasaki and Hirosima, theres a good chance Japan and Germany would have owned the world. Whose kids, now grandparents would have died? More Jews died than were killed by all three bombings. Would Japan and Germany have suddenly become kind, loving humanitarians had they won the war?? You are very shortsighted, and though I rarely call someone “stupid”, you certainly qualify.

  • olf

    Yes I agree. Our starting point in all of life must be Truth and Love. Nothing in the universe will work without. The Bible tells us that over, over and over again. I see a lot of points being made, (God Bless them) but if everyone “would” because I know they could if they wanted to, set aside fickle emotions committing to truth there would be very simple answers. Truth is very simple, “lies” now that’s difficult.

    You’re mistaken on the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints; which is the Church’s official name it’s not, nor has ever been, nor ever will be, “the Mormon Church”. And, by the way, your false-claim of the Church supposedly being for illegal-immigration is uninformed or ignorant. I am a member, and I know that the Church teaches its members to be law-abiding citizens, even immigrants. The Church leadership has, by the way, never to date come out with an official statement espousing its views on illegal immigrants, but by virtue of its own teachings, it would clearly be against them. The Church teaches everybody to be subject or submissive to civil authorities and for everybody to obey the law. No offense intended, but you’re incorrect about the Church. If you really want to know about the truths of the Church, you would really help properly inform yourself by listening to its worthy, faithful members in good standing who are in the know, and not fixating on false, unreliable, slanderous sources and urban-legends, neither of which are fact-based, but will tell you only lies, distorted or exaggerated information, propaganda, and innuendo.

  • olf

    Thank you. I’m not a member of that church, but I do know that all the description you stated to be true from the people I have meet over the years. I’m a Christian and know the Bible teachings and your people also know the Bible very well.

    All these comments on bombing in WW11! For the 5,000 years of which we have some history, war starts when one human wants what another human has, in large groups or small, down to two on one. One side usually is the aggressor and the other a defender. Once defense begins every weapon at deposal would be used as would the aggressor. Ancient weapons are pretty impressive too, and damage from ancient wars left civilizations of millions dead and their impressive cities rubble. Bombs or sticks & stones, the reasons for war never changes. Acquiesce every freedom and wealth you own to your enemy to avoid war, doesn’t work, he will still hate you and as their slave you will hate them. Be good at defense and win the wars, then years late the beneficiaries can use that fore-fought for freedom to criticize the weapons used! Gees.

    “must be nice living the good ole life. going to the movies, eating out, putting all that gas in the car, feeding the kids out on the town! keep up the good work, being rich is tough on you huh glen.”

    Yes, because only the rich among us go to movies, eat out, put gas in the car and feed the kids out on the town. Doesn’t Beck have the right to spend his hard-earned money as he pleases?

    “don’t be claiming to fight some fight! if you were fighting any real fight, you would be under the gun like the rest of us.”

    What does that even mean?

    “sitting that fence will not pay so well come the day of days. you job was to give us a voice, not keeping everyone happy.”

    How is he sitting the fence? And, did you hire him to give you a voice? I’m pretty sure his job is to voice his opinions on the news of the day.

    I read the Bible. Why don’t you try believing it? Remember the Roman Centurion? Centurion’s were not elevated to that ;position without having been in war and killing people. Yet Jesus commented that seldom had he seen such faith in the house of Israel because he told Jesus that he was under authority even as he was in authority of others. God sets uphe kingdoms in part to defend the people in it. King David led his people in war and yet he was loved of God. You are ignorant of the Bible and it’s meaning.

    I look forward to communicating with you again. You seem as though you’re a very rational, caring, wise, good-intentioned, and well-informed/ solidly-educated person, and clearly a Christian, and since I am a Christian too, you are by default one of my fellow Christian brethren.

    If we can bomb them in ww2 we can bomb children and those invading us today. We are more threatened today than we were in ww2. Germany was not invading our country although Japan attacked us. We are being attacked now by bombs more lethal. These so called-children are bring disease and many are tattooed drug cartel members even at a young age. These little time bombs will destroy our economy through an already mountain of federal debt. You go pound sand you witch. Don’t you tell me anything of what happened to Jews in ww2. You have no idea the connections some of may have to it. You are a presumptuous sewer spewing idiot. By the way, they did not get money to pay the drug cartels because the drug cartels are funding their invasion into this country.

    I agree. But I was drawing an analogy with ww2 and defending or borders with lethal force today. If we were a good people back then bombing and killing children then why would we not be good today doing the same? That was the sarcasm I was using against Glenn’s idiocy. We can be kind to our enemies after we have defeated them just as in ww2.

    You know, I would not mind the taxes so much if the politicians and federal parasites didn’t get their fingers in it. If every dollar only went to those who truly need it instead of lazy people, it would not be so bad. But it would always be better done through the church instead of Uncle Sam.

    Germany was invading us. U boats sunks 1,000′s yes 1,000′s of U boats. Japan was willing to lose everything if they died little by little(i.e. Frogs in slowly boiling water) Lethal force was all we could do. Axis powers were aligned to take over the world. Not after the nukes though. They surrendered rather quickly(3 days) after Nagasaki was bombed. I agree on your (Trojan horse) children. The lot of them need to be helped and sent back with a message they can’t just come illegally.

  • Getaclue

    I am a bit disturbed that Beck would draw parallels between the Jews and a movie about apes.. because the Muslims are constantly using comments that link Jews to Apes and pigs. Being Jewish, I am flabbergasted that people would see my people as anything but human beings.. a people that has suffered throughout history.
    There are good and bad PEOPLE (not apes) in all races.
    Also, with all the historical atrocities to pick from that were recorded at the time of WWII.. Beck uses a fictional movie to draw this conclusion.
    We do not live in Hollywood …this is real life, where Progressives and Islam unite in an un-holy alliance to take over the world. And believe me, they are not going to stop to see which group is “good or bad” that opposes them…if you are not with them..they intend to kill you.

    time is short know the signs, when you see the military and all it’s might, flee. the laws are already written and in place soon to be enforced. the camps are forced open with those from foreign lands. this is the lie to bring the system on line.

    the early days will be cash only, prepare and have cash on hand, gas to flee, together you stand and wait. from above and only once he will meet you in the clouds. don’t not believe the lies, he is here or he is there. wait in the desert i will come for you there. fear not the first death for many will die, fear only the second, the soul shall never die. trust me and you will find i am trust worthy.

    Oh my goodness! Did Glenn say the Jews are like the apes? No he did not. He was merely pointing out that the conflict in the movie, i.e., that a few bad eggs can poison the lot, could have been ironed out if individuals from the two sides had simply tried to get to know each other. The same is true in the human spectrum. If people who claim to hate all Jews would simply try to get to know a Jewish person or family, the animosity would most likely subside. There are clear parallels between this movie and human existence. I felt exactly the same as Glenn when I saw it, although I didn’t immediately jump to the anti-semitism issue. I saw it as more of a liberal/conservative issue. But the point is that Glenn never compared the apes to the Jews–he compared the conflict to the real world. Period.

  • Getaclue

    Do not try to skew this in any way.. a lot of my Jewish friends and family were horribly offended by Beck’s sudden epiphany about Jews in a movie about apes. Perhaps you should do a little research about how Mormons and Islam have a lot of the same views, and have also worked together, such as relief efforts to Haiti. Also Joseph Smith said he was like the next Muhammad. I do not think for one second that this was an accident.. and yes it was ANTI-SEMITIC!

    Beck needs to be called out on this.. and I don’t care what you want to justify .. it will not work! And considering this was 8 days ago that I posed this.. you must be on Beck’s payroll!!!

    Dear Getaclue: Just because I responded 7 days after you wrote it, doesn’t mean that I’m employed by Glenn Beck. Perhaps it means that I just don’t check my email very often, which happens to be the case. No, I do not work for Glenn, unfortunately. But while we are making accusations, I suppose I could accuse you of being a troll from a radical, left-wing, propaganda website such as Media Matters or The Daily Kos. In fact, my accusation is backed by your illogical conclusion that Glenn is somehow anti-Semitic just because he draws a parallel between the conflict in the movie and the conflicts in real life. If you actually ever listened to or watched Glenn Beck, you would know that he supports Israel at every turn—EVERY turn. He is in totally support of Israel and the Jewish people. So for you to sit there and draw this totally baseless conclusion that he is somehow being anti-Semitic implies that you are either a leftist or ignorant (although they usually go hand-in-hand). As for what Glenn actually said, he was pointing out that during WWII, the Nazi’s were dehumaninzing the Jews. So how you get that Glenn is anti-Semitic from that defies logic. If you’re looking for anti-Semitism, you are looking in the wrong place here. Look at people like Obama or John Kerry. While they may never say that they hate Israel, their actions tell another story. You must judge people by their actions because people with evil in their hearts will never TELL you they mean to do evil. I mean, how do you think serial killers lure their prey? By saying, “Hey, come with me because I want to kill you”? Again, no evil person will tell you that he or she means to do evil, which is why you must judge people on their actions.

    As for your “supporting” websites, I’m not sure what I was
    supposed to glean from them except that there are similarities between Islam and Mormons. But guess what dear, there are similarities between all religions. I personally don’t believe in the man-made Mormon religion, but I will say that Mormons tend to be very, very good people. And what does the fact that Mormons joined with Muslims to help in Haiti have to do with anything? Not all Muslims are violence-loving radicals. And Muslims and Mormons working together to help the Haitians was a good thing right? Must we constantly “read” something negative into EVERYTHING?! As I’ve said, we should start looking at people as individuals, and judging each individual on his or her actions, instead of putting everyone into groups because within every group there are good people and bad people. I think that is the point Glenn was trying to make. If people try to get to know each other as individuals, rather than writing-off a person as a member of this group or that group, much of the strife in the world would diminish. If you consider what the radical left is doing in this country, it is just that: creating (often false) problems so that people separate themselves into groups. America is now more divided than ever, and you can see (and feel) how detrimental it is. When we start looking at people only as a member of a group, this in itself is dehumanizing. Individuality leads to liberty and happiness. Collectives lead to strife and subjugation.

    First.. being slow to respond to email is not valid here.. I posted this.. and you choose to respond to my comment 8 days later.. which does not seem anything but suspicious… I never directly addressed you.

    Second.. I have over 9,000 comments, which does not indicate a troll.. I am part of one of the biggest Conservative sites that calls it like it should be, and I will not whitewash this situation with Beck…
    Third.. I was following Beck since his CNN days.. but as of late I cancelled ..because clearly the man has leaned more Liberal lately and does not represent true Conservatives and the American people. I cancelled my Blaze subscription after the Bundy situation… when Beck drew a line in the sand.. that you were either with him 100%.. or you needed to “unfriend him or cancel”.. which I gladly obliged! I will not blindly follow any man.. especially since he thought that his perspective is the only one that matters. He did not listen to anyone’s opposing views..
    Further, there was no racism that happened with Bundy.. even several black men came out in support of Bundy. Beck chose to bash Patriotic Americans that stood up to a tyrannical government!
    As for Beck.. the Bundy situation, the border situation, and YES this ape movie comparison with Jews.. was enough to tell me that Beck has something wrong with him. He is not the same person.. and therefore I am going to question anything that he has done in the past.. including his once support of Israel. He may still be vocalizing it.. but I am not convinced that he does not have alternative motives. Therefore as a Jew… I am allowed to be suspect of someone that is acting in this way.. for the protection of myself and my people. God tells us not to trust in man.. and there is no way that I am going to do this. And being that you may not be Jewish..you cannot have the same perspective that I have.. so you have no right to tell me what I view as being Anti-Semitic. Beck could have used ANYTHING from history to make this statement.. this was not the thing he should have drawn upon… IT WAS WRONG!!!
    And Kerry and Obama are obvious about their anti-Semitism.. so that is ridiculous for me not to be aware of this..
    And I know my fair share about Mormons.. who tend to think that they are the new “Jews”.. so no.. I dislike Mormons and Islam because they have a lot of hate for my people. I have never met a Mormon that didn’t think that they were the replacement for my people. God made a covenant, an everlasting covenant with the Jews.
    And there is no difference between radical Muslims and the so-called moderates.. mebbe you should read parts of the Koran… because if they follow Islam.. then their book tells them to kill infidels. Also try Bare Naked Islam’s site.. you will see for yourself.. Islam needs to be eradicated… it is not a religion but a political system meant to spread Sharia Law.
    Further, since God told the Israelites in the Bible to wipe out the whole nations of people because of their abhorrent ways.. God sees people that follow ideologies and sinful ways as groups.. not individuals. It is up to God to decide if someone should be spared, not up to man.
    Islam is something that I will never judge someone as an individual.. if you belong to Islam.. then you are evil. If you leave Islam.. like Walid Shoebat.. then you have chosen to leave its evils behind.
    A person must follow God.. not a religion, not a man..
    Read quotes from the Koran…
    Especially what is going on in Israel.. do not expect me to be in the least sympathetic to Arabs..

    Let me see if I can explain so that you’ll understand: I get emails with stories from The Blaze . I often go days without checking them. Finally, I opened the email and read the story about what Glenn thinks of the Planet of the Apes. I then I read the comments. And guess what? YOUR comment was the first one. No, I don’t work for Glenn and go searching for all comments that disparage him. But I don’t believe that Glenn Beck is anti-semitic, and so I responded to your comment. Just as you are totally misreading my background because I responded to your comment several days later, I believe you are misreading Glenn’s meaning.

    Now having said that, I will agree with you that Glenn is changing, and not for the better. I believe he tries to do good, but I can hardly tolerate listening to him anymore, mostly because he is so preachy. My skin crawls every time he says, “I want to read something I wrote…” It just seems so self-centered–like he thinks he is the most profound person on the planet. I don’t listen to him on the radio at all anymore. I believe most people who follow him (or used to) are good, moral people. We don’t need someone constantly telling us how to be good, except our pastors or rabbis. I just find him too annoying to tolerate, and while he still may be a good person, I haven’t listened to him much in the last year so maybe he has turned anti-semitic in that time, and I’m just totally wrong to disagree with you. If so, then I apologize. He used to be totally supportive of the Jewish people, and usually anti-semites tend to want harm to come to the Jews. I just can’t believe Glenn Beck wants harm to come to the Jews, but as I said, maybe that has changed.

    Now as for Mormons and Muslims. I grew up in an area with lots of Mormons. As a group, they are the most honorable people around. I say “as a group” because obviously within any group, there are going to be some bad apples. But if I needed someone to house sit for me, and all I knew about them was that they were a Christian or a Mormon, I would pick a Mormon. I’m a Christian, but we all know lots of Christians who don’t even attempt to act the way God would want us to act. But the Mormons I knew were more godly than most Christians. So overall, while I totally disagree with much of what they believe (because Joseph Smith was a wacko and snake oil salesman), the way they behave toward their fellow man is admirable.

    As for Muslims, I know what they believe. While I don’t know everything in the Quran, I know that it preaches hatred and death to all who are not believers. But just as there are self-proclaimed Jews and Christians who don’t actually practice their faith, or even know what’s in their holy books, I think there are Muslims who don’t subscribe to everything in the Quran. I worked with a Muslim man from Turkey who was the nicest, most fun person in the office. He claimed to be Muslim, but there was no hatred in this man’s heart. I don’t think he practiced the religion, but he still identified himself as a Muslim. So not all Muslims are Jew-hating, bad people.

    This is not to say that I think the faith of Islam is ok because I don’t. In fact, if this religion could be erased from the world, the world would be a much better place. I am quite shocked that it is one of the fastest growing religions in the world. To me that means that human existence is in a downward spiral. I think life is going to get worse before it gets better…if it ever can get better. I wish Israel would just wipe out the Palestinians and get it over with, but of course, the world wouldn’t tolerate that. I will never understand why the Jewish people are constantly under attack (physically and verbally) from every corner of the world. I believe it is because they are God’s chosen people, and the devil hates them and uses spiritually weak people to attack them.

    Anyway, I’m not here to argue with a fellow conservative (which I believe you are). We are probably on the same page about most things. I just don’t think Glenn is an anti-semite. Yes, maybe he said something that came out wrong, but who hasn’t done that? I say things all the time that I later think, “Oh my gosh, was that offensive?” But I never mean to be offensive, i.e., my words never have double meanings. Sometimes words just come out wrong. I just think you should give Glenn the benefit of the doubt because while maybe he’s becoming more liberal, that doesn’t mean he has started hating the Jews.
