The real violent rhetoric

The past week has sparked a lot of discussion about violent rhetoric in the media. Some have even suggested a return to the Fairness Doctrine, which would spell the end of talk radio, and now American citizens are being investigated for simply asking their congressmen questions.

Glenn read the news, “Clay Bowler has become active in politics.  Starting last year he didn't support Billy Long, the Democrat running for congress in his Missouri district.  So he started a website.  He began attending campaign events.  He even started asking the candidate tough questions.  But when Long eventually won, Bowler and his website ‘Long is Wrong’ went away.  So when the FBI showed up at his door recently saying he was perceived to be making threats to the congressman, he was shocked.  Bowler said, ‘I'm not a threat to Billy Long.  I find whole thought funny because I'm such an advocate for constitutional rights, I would never do anything that would put in jeopardy those constitutional rights like the Second Amendment.’  Bowler admitted he confronted Long in the past but never threatened him.  He said ‘I never, ever, ever threatened him’.  Bowler showed KSRP the worst of his confrontations, a YouTube video showing him walking with Long asking him questions, more of a journalistic inquiry than a threatening tirade.”

Glenn then told the story of the Fairness Doctrine, which started and then forties and went away in the late eighties.  “So the late Forties, I know at least we had Truman shot, or at least shot at and almost killed.  It was just by the grace of God that Truman wasn't assassinated.  We had JFK, Malcolm X, MLK, RFK, George Wallace, Gerald Ford, Vernon Jordan, John Lennon, Ronald Reagan and then the Fairness Doctrine went away.  Since the Fairness Doctrine ended, literally the only one we can find is Gabrielle Giffords.”

Glenn told the story of the violent rhetoric being aimed at Sarah Palin. “Have you seen the drawings and the posters of Sarah Palin?  They're in San Francisco.  There is a group SFist that is putting out posters of Sarah Palin, and it's Sarah Palin with her mouth open and flames all around her.  And I'm trying to remember the exact slogan.  We'll share it with you later on in the broadcast.  But it basically says, engulf her in rage until she understands her violence.  Excuse me?  Engulf her in rage?  And nobody's saying anything.”

The media also has no interest in covering Francis Fox Piven and her calls for violence either. Glenn’s solution? Offense.

“I want Martin Luther King Day on The Blaze, I would like that to be focused on those calling for violence, really, truly I want an expose, I want a packet on Frances Fox Piven.  I want everybody to know exactly who she is.  I want all of her articles but then I need summaries so people can consume it, so people know who she is and trying it together with The Coming Insurrection.  When she says we need to be like Greece and we need to be like England, video packages that show what that means, what she's calling -- what she's calling for.  When she says this after they're trying to beat Prince Charles and Camilla to death and screaming "Off with their heads."  No, we don't need to be like England.  No, we don't need to be like the student riots.  They were trying to set London on fire.  That doesn't help solve anything.”

Look for Glenn, The Blaze, and glennbeck.com to expose the people who are truly calling for violence on Monday.

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
