Glenn: "We are all brothers and sisters"

Glenn discussed remarks made by Governor Bentley of Alabama, who had apologized for his recent remarks where he said that non-Christians were not his “brothers”.

Glenn played the audio on radio this morning.

“[Gov. Bentley] was at a church service honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. During his speech he said, quote:  Anybody here today who has not accepted Jesus Christ as their savior, I'm telling you, you're not my brother and you're not my sister, and I want to be your brother,” a reporter said.

Glenn disagreed, “Everyone is my brother and -- Van Jones is my brother.  I disagree with [Van Jones].  I totally disagree with him.”

Pat added, “And it doesn't matter what they've done and it doesn't matter what religion they are.”

Stu pointed out, "I t just seemed to be a statement of, look, I have faith; I hope I can share it with you.  So, you know, you're right.  People in Alabama are going to figure it out.  But it doesn't look like this guy's some horrible person for this comment."

Glenn added,  And we didn't bring it up to condemn him."

Bentley had apologized earlier, saying, “Do I get in trouble about speaking openly and honest about anything?  Sure, I do.  But I also realize that sometimes you just have to choose your words and you have to do it correctly.”

But Glenn had some issue with the way he phrased his apology, as it tied back to his issue with political correctness.

Glenn said, “ Now he knows he can't say those things and so he says I will choose my words more carefully next time.  Well, no.  No, don't choose your words more carefully.  Let's have the dialogue.  I don't want you to live with that idea as being true.  Let's not live in silence.  Convince me or I'll convince you.  Let's have the debate.”

Glenn tied the comments back to the Edwards Bernays cattle/rancher theory that he has been talking about recently.

“There are cattle and there are ranchers.  In this case it's not Republican/Democrat or progressive and constitutionalist.  Here it is Christians versus everybody else.  In Islam the way, you know, the people like Osama Bin Laden understand it, it is Muslims are the ranchers and everyone else are cattle.  That's the problem.”

The argument reminded Glenn of a conversation he had the night before with a member of his television staff. During the conversation, the staff member talked about her upbringing in San Francisco, her family’s thoughts on her working for Glenn, and what she thought about some of the topics.

“And I said [to her], I'm guessing your job is not real popular in the family.  And she said, yes, you might say that it's made for some interesting discussions.  And I said, how much of -- and she's brilliant and she has changed the show.  She really has.  She has made it so much better.  And I said, how much of the stuff that I say do you even agree with?  And she said, I don't know.  I think I'm about 50%.”

“And I said, you know, this is the way it's supposed to be.  It's supposed to be not about politics.  Not about parties but about the principles.  And I don't really care -- I mean, we work together great.  I don't care what you do in your life.  I don't care what you believe.”

“What you do in your life I might disagree with and I might say, no, no, no.  But as long as I can't control you and you can't control me, as long as we are as libertarian as we possibly can, as long as we don't believe there are ranchers and cows but town folks, then we can live side by side and we can be fine.  We can be fine.  That's the way it's supposed to be.”

A caller from Alabama defended the Governor, and it led to a theological discussion about the origin of the soul. Glenn emphasized that he was not condemning Governor Bentley, but using the story to make a larger point about opening up discussion and not shutting down speech.

“We're bringing it up to make a point that we should have these kinds of conversations and you can have really serious conversations and not shoot each other.  That's the way it should be.  Because we're all brothers and sisters,” he told the caller.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."

Glenn Beck has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just to have everyone look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China … the list goes on, but no consequences are paid. Now, the media have called the election for Joe Biden and insist no one can question it. But for many of the more than 71 million people who voted for President Trump, our search for the truth isn't over yet.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn called out the left's long list of alleged corruption that has gone unchecked and stressed that Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process of investigating the multiple allegations of election fraud to ensure our voting systems are fair.

"I don't know about you, but I'm tired. I am worn out. I am fed up!" Glenn said during his opening monologue. "I've had enough. I am tired of exposing corruption, doing our homework, even going overseas and having documents translated to make sure they're exactly right, [and] presenting the evidence ... except, once we expose it, nothing happens. Nobody goes to jail. Nobody pays for a damn thing any more!"
