Loving left accost Glenn & family

What was supposed to be a nice evening in the park turned into a truly hostile free-for-all, as Glenn and his family attempted to watch a movie in New York’s Bryant Park last night.

Hoping to enjoy some time together, while taking in a showing of Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps with his wife, Tania, and daughter, Glenn and his family instead experienced an unfriendly and borderline violent scene. At one point, an angry moviegoer kicked a glass of wine into Tania’s back, and as she got up to walk away, a man shouted, “We hate conservatives here.”

When Glenn shared this experience with his staff this morning, no one could understand why he chose to stay. “All I wanted to do is go out on a blanket with my family and have dinner in the afternoon sun and sit around,” Glenn said.

“We didn't leave. My staff said this morning said why didn't you leave right away. That was uncomfortable. I said because I have a right to watch a movie and enjoy a movie with my family in the park. I have a right.”

While Glenn admitted that he knows better than to expect a warm welcome in New York City, what bothered him most was the cowardly behavior of the hateful crowd. Glenn will be spending his upcoming vacation searching the world for courage. He is set to begin what he is calling “the search for courage and I'm going around the world and I'm looking for examples of courage.”

“Courage doesn't come from a bag or a bottle. Courage doesn't come in mobs,” Glenn said. Courage comes alone, quietly. You won't be drunk and you won't be in a mob at the ultimate test of courage. You will be alone.”

Last night, the hostile mob “found their courage in a bottle.” Those same hate-spewing masses would not have had the courage to say those things had it been a sea of conservatives in the park. “It's mob mentality,” Glenn said. “People are braver when it's in a bag or a bottle, and when they're in the majority.”

After the incident, Glenn spoke with his daughter, who was still upset about what had transpired, but Glenn reminded her that the answer is not hatred, but love.

“All I can think of about the people around me all night is that I feel sorry for you. I really feel sorry for you. You are so arrogant and so convinced that you are absolutely 100% right and you are helping build a system that is fueled by hate.”

Despite the cruelness of the crowd, Glenn reminded his listeners that moments like this must serve as an opportunity to learn and grow. These incidences provide a chance to prove to all the naysayers that in the end, love and courage will always prevail.

“Search for individual courage, search for those moments when you are truly alone and sober,” Glenn said. “Search for those moments and when you find them, do not pile into the rage, find a way to love because in the end, only love remains.”

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
