Glenn, David Barton weigh in on Tinkle-gate

While it's really difficult to feel badly for dead Taliban terrorists, what a small group of Marines did to a handful of dead Taliban and videotaped it is causing quite the controversy. What'd they do to infuriate terrorist sympathizing progressives everywhere? One word: tinklegate. Nevertheless, even Glenn felt that it was a poor course of action for the Marines, and he invited David Barton on to help him explain on radio this morning.

"I want to talk to you a little bit about the going‑on in Afghanistan with our military, and it's not going to be a popular stance and may not even be the right stance but it's my stance. I want to talk about the urination on dead bodies by our troops. Understand that when I get to my opinion, I speak as a guy who has not been in war and I understand war is hell, but I want to give you a little perspective and we're going to bring David Barton in as well who, you know, has sons who have been in the military and have served and I just want to talk to him about the historic perspective of the nation we should be, not the nation we are or not the nation that we ‑‑ that, you know, takes the easy way out. The compassionate nation and the nation that we should be," Glenn said.

"Here's what Allen West says: The Marines were wrong. Give them the maximum punishment under the field grade level Article XV nonjudicial punishment, place a general officer letter of reprimand in their personnel file, have them in full dress uniform stand before the battalion, each personally apologize to God, country and the corps, videotaped and concluded by singing the full U.S. Marine Corps hymn without a TelePrompTer. For everybody else, unless you've been shot by the Taliban, shut your mouth. War is hell," Glenn explained.

"The only thing I disagree with on this is the last line," he said.

"We have to start with, these guys were wrong. That doesn't mean that you don't understand what they've done, it doesn't mean that war isn't hell," Glenn said.

"I think degrading their bodies by peeing on them is despicable honestly. I understand the anger. I understand the frustration. I haven't had all of my buddies killed. If my buddies were being killed, I get it. It did happen in previous wars," he said.

Glenn cautioned, however, that "it's not a criminal thing and they should be disciplined because I believe our corps needs to be more disciplined than that."

"Last night I was just reading Ecclesiastes. Try this: There's no righteous man upon the Earth who does good and never sins," he said.

"In other words, in other words, if you're in the world and you are actively trying to change the world, you're going to make mistakes."

Glenn also invited David Barton on to explain how George Washington would have handled this type of situation. You can hear his explanation in the clip above.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
