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.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
