Glenn talks Hobby Lobby, Eric Holder, and partisan politics with Megyn Kelly

On Tuesday, Glenn joined Megyn Kelly on Fox News’ The Kelly File to discuss a range of topics. From the Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision in favor of religious freedom in Burwell vs. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. to Attorney General Eric Holder’s latest race baiting remarks, Glenn explained why partisan politics have reached a peak in the United States.

Democrats are now calling for a reversal of the Supreme Court ruling in the Hobby Lobby case, which decided Obamacare cannot force for-profit, closely held companies to violate their religious beliefs by paying for emergency contraceptive coverage that could lead to abortions. Kelly, an attorney, chastised the left’s “blatant mischaracterizing” of the decision. Glenn agreed the debate has gotten out of hand, and he said it is time for the divisiveness to end.

“I am so done with the left and the right and I’m so done with the talking points of both the Republicans and the Democrats. I’m so done with the Boogey Man… It’s so divisive, what’s happening to us,” Glenn said. “We all play a role in the divisiveness or the uniting of our country every day, every word that we choose. Me and you at home. We just have to say, ‘No more. I’m not gonna play that game. I’m not going to play into your fear mongering of bad boogeymen.’”


Kelly also asked Glenn to respond to Holder’s comments from a recent interview with ABC News’ This Week in which he doubled down on the idea that he and President Obama are judged because of their race. Holder, who is the first black attorney general, claims he faces a “certain level of vehemence” because he is black. He went on to say there is a “racial animus” in this country.

The comments did not sit well with Glenn, who condemned Holder’s “pure partisan politics.” Glenn has absolutely no issue with Holder’s race. Instead, he has an issue with the way he does his job.

“I am so deeply saddened by Eric Holder and the way he views his own office,” Glenn said.

    Glenn is right Holer is a disgrace Fast & Furious anyone; or how bout oh the Black Panthers in Philly voter scandal; hum not enough yet how bout his BFF Obama the racist. Holder if he did his job, Obama would be gone for just disobeying the us constitution, rule of law and not enforcing our laws that shld b enough but Holder, Reid, Schumer, Durbin, Hoyer and the rest all agree w/them DHS SEC, Kerry, Hagel all of them. Kerry makes me sick when he says America is not exceptional but he is right about one thing DEMS ARE NOT NOR IS HE.

    Obamas ideology plays a big part in his decisions. His pure hatred of America itself and who we are and what we are he hates it; his green energy scam; his war on coal and use of the EPA to get rid of it; his cloward & Piven strategy on and on the list is endless he is waging war on America and is not giving enough or a fair amt of status to white europeans anymore but 3rd world latinos in order to ETHNICALLY REPLACE US AS THE MIDDLE CLASS AND TURN US INTO A WELFARE NATION FOR HIS GLOBAL AGENDA. OUR SOVEREIGNTY AND FREEDOM IS AT STAKE AND WE MUST FIGHT TO KEEP IT NOW

  • Thomas A. Rice

    I don’t like the President for the same reason I don’t like a lot of Democrats, because of their political agendas and ideologies. It’s not because of the color of their skin-It’s because they are far left socialists who are turning us into something other than the greatest Nation on Earth. I despise Harry Reid and he’s about as white as they come- because he’s a political hack. So let’s get beyond this “If you disagree with me then you’re a Racist.”

  • landofaahs

    You’re an idiot Glenn. Democrats will never give up forcing others to do what they want. They are control freaks and divisiveness is exactly what we need. A permanent kind. There is no compromise with liberal/democrat/communist/control freaks. I say run the liberals out of the country to some place like Cuba where hell already exists.

  • landofaahs

    Really Glenn? How about if we not play into your boogeyman bad man about muslims being a threat to us or Israel? I am beginning to believe Glenn is a front man for the system that wants to keep the Ponzi going. Democrats are bad and need to be defeated just like the muslims are. If you follow Glenn’s advice then you can kiss this country goodbye . Our founders where not so compliant.

  • Chuck P

    I feel like Glenn should rename himself as “Ralph”, at least as a stage name (radio name, if you will). Judging from the comments in recent weeks/months, this audience has a real Lord of the Flies feel to it.

    Eric Holder is a criminal, has to be prosecuted!

  • landofaahs

    This is why liberals cannot be lived with. They are always trying to force their will on others. One major component of obamacare for example was to guarantee coverage to HIV patients so they could not be dropped. People with certain lifestyles are protected and the high cost of treatment for the otherwise avoidable disease by behavior modification is one major reason for everyone being bled to death for it.

    Can the government make a religiously owned company or individuals pay for the military if the owners or individuals are pacifists?

    Can Muslims refuse to pay for the “war on terror” because they believe it is an immoral war against their religion?

    Can the Amish be required to pay for freeway construction?

    Where do you draw the line?

  • Pat C

    The Constitution recognizes both military and infrastructure spending, not any other. That said, we have allowed for ‘conscientious objector’ status in matters of war. Not sure about Amish and freeway construction – they do use roads, just not electric/gas cars.
    The problem with the left’s argument about corporations is that within such, persons are being forced to financially support objectionable material (abortion inducing drugs), through the company. By their thinking, any religious OB-GYN working for a non-Christian hospital or HMO could be forced to subscribe such drugs or even perform an abortion. Where do you draw the line?
    Ultimately, commerce should be voluntary and of the free will of both participants. Christians are not forcing non-Christians to DO anything, but non-Christians are attempting to force an action on Christians.

  • Pat C

    Cloward/Piven strategy, which O subscribes to, is all about divisiveness. Working moms vs. stay-at-home, black vs. white, rich vs. poor, corporate vs. individual, Christians vs. gays, etc. All have been played during O’s time in office.
    I understand Glen’s reason for opting out. Politics gets so partisan to the point at which no one is listening. Tone down the rhetoric, try to understand the fear motivating opposition, and possibly open avenues of communication. I have had far more success dealing with liberals when I try to understand their motivation. Oftentimes they are surprised that Conservatives actually do care. Their only view of us is through the filter of Liberal outlets. We need to carefully change their opinions through honest discussion. Break through the communication barrier. Cloward/Piven is the roadblock that must be detoured.

    A corporation is not some AI or separate being. A corporation, as formed, is an individual or group of individuals who join together for mutual benefit and goals. Should these individuals lose the right to their constitutionally protected rights, because they want to do business? Heck, no! If I lose my rights simply because I am doing business with others, that is completely wrong, immoral, and unethical! In the USA, you can’t do have a business unless you at least file a DBA, making my person the company for the purpose of doing business; for me to be denied my rights simply because I am now a “business”, lacks all sense!

    As Glenn Beck is a self admitted recovering alcoholic, I am sure he is well aware of enablers. I think Glenn’s heart is in the right place, but I think it is misplaced into that of an enabler. Glenn should read, I know he has, about tough love. In the long run, it is best for all concerned. His trip to the Texas border will only encourage MORE minors to come north illegally. Dangerous for all.

  • mspatdev

    I totally agree with you. obammy and upholder is always playing the race card and blaming the world for everything he does. They blame the blacks, Hispanic’s, the Asians, the whites and everybody. When they can do their job right then maybe I will agree with them, but they have so much hate for the USA and every body in it. They are nothing but racist. I don’t believe a word they say any more.

  • mspatdev

    I totally agree with you. I have said many times that obammy is out to destroy America and to put us down to a 3rd world country and we are there and lower. He has spent so much money for other nations and not the USA. We can’t even get rid of him, because of the people he has brainwashed so much. One day soon he will get his just rewards and it is not going to be good. He has had so many people killed that it isn’t funny any more. Maybe he can be hung a cross like Jesus was and the people can throw stones at him.

  • mspatdev

    I agree with you on you two comments except with Glenn. He is a good person and he is trying to get people interested in what is going on in the USA.

  • BlueMN

    You missed his comment where he advocates shooting unarmed children at the border.

  • BlueMN

    Why do different viewpoints scare you so much lando? Why is democracy so intimidating to you? Is it because deep down you know your extremist ideology lacks any merit and will be rejected by the the vast majority of people?

  • Anonymous

    Your extremist ideology lacks merit. If you cannot see the lies and other dishonesty of Holder and Obama, then you are blind. There is a good reason why the majority of citizens do not trust Obama, and that Holder was charged with contempt of Congress.

  • Scott Snoopy

    because a true democracy is nothing but mob rule that is why the US is a Constitutional Representative Republic. Sadly it was gutted with the passing of the 17th Amendment, having senators elected by the masses not by the state legislatures…this gutted the protection states had from a rampant centralized big gubmint.

  • Bonnie Somer

    God will surely give him way more than we can. He is the anti Christ to me along w/hitler, stalin, mao, and more. Him, Holder, and the czars and rest of his admin plus nanny bloomberg feel we are so stupid but isn’t it funny that before him we managed. We must get back to God, family and freedom

  • Tristan Chris Heiss

    because democracy has failed at the expense of the citizens [and their ;lives] since its inception in greece a few ‘k’ years ago. We are a Republic for a reason . The extremist Ideology is the one that some idiots keep trying to force on everyone at the expense of those who do work . Your insanity of thinking that repeating the same mistake over and over and expecting different results isnt working on those who see history as lesson. That socialist pig called democracy is and always has been a social failure and its killed more people than all the wars in written history combined. Democracy has NEVER worked in the history of this world. Yet Republics have thrived and benefited the people over and over again..
    ..Until socialism sets in a destroys them. http://washingtonexaminer.com/fore-obama-plans-16-day-marthas-vineyard-vacation-on-12m-estate/article/2550914 this is a prime example what a socialist leader does. he collapses the economy and then only the elitist leaders get to have the percs.

  • Tristan Chris Heiss

    Eric[obama's penis ] Holder and Janet Naplitano both were in charge at the Waco Texas Compound Massacre.THEY ordered 30+ underage CHILDREN burned to death over the adults at the Compounds rights to bear arms. I want to know why THEY haven’t been executed for mass murder. Because unlike Sandy Hook….. Waco, Texas ACTUALLY happened!

    I’m not sure its possible but I probably despise Harry Reid more than Obama or Holder. He is the angriest man I think I’ve ever seen, Now of course I do not know him personally, but when he says stuff like “The border is secure”, he is either so stupid he doesn’t even know what a border is, or he is in denial and pushing an agenda for the sake of his owner, the president. He is like Obama’s lap dog and he follows his every command, and trust me, I’ll bet the treats keep on coming in large quantity so that this lap dog keeps performing and pushing this liberal ideology and agenda. I so long for the days when this country pulled together and you had no idea if your friends were Rs or Ds. Lately I’ve been reading a lot of books about WWII “Unbroken” is the latest and it was so incredible how this country worked together for common goals to make America a great place to live. Honestly, I wish those who don’t like it here would just leave. It would make everyone much happier.

    Run in circles, scream and shout

    Viewpoints don’t bother me but democracy does. Democracy is 6 out of 10 being able to abuse the other 4. It gives the right of the 6 out of 10 to steal from and enslave the other 4. Only when each has the right to his own property and speech is there freedom. Your rights end where my nose, pocketbook, and possessions begin. Nobody should have the right to force me to give up the fruits of my labor without my unforced consent. If you don’t understand that, you are just a tyrant wannabe.

    LOL Are you and your ilk so poorly educated that you don’t understand the difference between “democracy” and “mob rule?” I was right, you ARE afraid. Come up with some defensible ideas, like ones that don’t involve massacring large numbers of unarmed children, and maybe you’ll win over the people.

  • landofaahs

    “Poorly educated”? I like that one. But tell me what was wrong with my definition of democracy. Give me your “PRECISE” definition of democracy. Is democracy not majority rule? I notice that you only spew vague insults. The other point of so-called unarmed children. These 16-17 year olds “children” are weapons of mass destruction to the tune of hundreds of thousands which we as tax payers will have to support. They are armed with weapons of financial destruction.
    But let me ask you this. Have you ever been in a situation as a soldier where a child was rigged with a bomb and headed towards other innocent children and the only option you had was to shoot the child bomber? If not I think you should be able to answer what you would do given no other option but to destroy one child or allow that bomb rigged child to kill many others. That is what illegal immigration is, killing many more than themselves. I assume that you would condemn Truman for killing all those innocent little children in Japan in ww2 and not to mention the innocent people in the aspirin factory bill Clinton bombed.

  • landofaahs

    By the way, I assume that you would be against aborting unarmed little babies in the womb huh? LOL you hypocrite. 40 million and counting since ’73. I guess that’s “winning over people” huh? You’re just another one of those queer thinking liberals. Very odd you fellows

  • landofaahs

    If those little children are so precious to you perhaps we could offset the cost of this by eliminating the EPA, Dept of Ed and welfare and food stamps. I mean I’m sure these are hard working smart educated people who will add to our economy and not drain from it. You liberals are so dumb. How about we just deduct it from what we waste on HIV research. I mean, we will need the funds to pay for all the diseases we know these children a re bringing into this country to endanger the children here.
