Football star Chad Ochocinco calls Beck's Broke "EPIC" on Twitter

Well Chad Ochocinco, wide receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals, just saw his stock in the Mercury Radio Arts Fantasy Football league skyrocket. Over the weekend, Mediaite reported that Ochocinco tweeted out to his 2.3 million followers that he was reading Glenn Beck’s Broke. Well, his fans weren't exactly thrilled with the idea, but Ochocinco stuck to his guns and – while saying he didn’t agree with everything Glenn says – found the book to be “EPIC”.

Glenn, who knows next to nothing about sports, was excited to see a celebrity stand by their opinions on issues seriously affecting the country, even if their fans may find them unpopular. “he pulls it off the shelf, he buys it and he starts to read it and then he has the guts to stand up and say it even though it's going to anger some of his fans.  Next time that you decide to keep quiet when you should be speaking up, think about him.  He has nothing to gain and everything to lose by hacking off all of his fans.”

Pat and Stu both pointed out that Ochcinco is not known as a conservative, and Glenn said he had heard he is even a fan of Bill Clinton. Ochocinco's tweets can be seen on The Blaze.

While Ochocinco was receiving a lot of backlash from his fans, Glenn pointed out that his views on the economy are not that controversial, and used the situation as a teachable moment for his audience.

“[Chad Ochocinco] earns his money before he spends it.  He earns it.  Government doesn't earn their money. I haven't had to bail out Chad,” Glenn said. “Unlike the government, he gives the people who pay his salary something of value.  If you compare the two of them, I might have him run for president.”

“Unlike the government, I don't think people like Chad should be paying the bill for everybody else in society simply because he's successful.  I don't think that I should be the beneficiary of thousands of hours in the gym - Chad's been in there working out every day,” Glenn said.

“Yet we feel it's right to take his money?  He dedicated his life to master something that no one else on Earth or very few other people on Earth can do and do well, and for that we punish his success and take away his money?  How that's become a controversial point of view and nobody wants him to read those points of view.”

“I understand why they're yelling at you.  I don't know how it's become controversial in America, but apparently it has,” Glenn said.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.

Disney actress Gina Carano was just the latest to be canceled for being vocally conservative — this time for making a Holocaust comparison. But on this week's episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," renowned Jewish historian Edwin Black explains how Gina's comparison wasn't exactly out of line: The second phase of the Holocaust, exclusion, "is like cancel culture."

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril. He told Glenn he believes our culture and our history are being erased. Our ideals are being censored and our values are being mocked.
