MUST WATCH: Glenn declares "I am a man" during passionate GBTV monologue

On GBTV tonight, Glenn delivered what was probably one of his most passionate monologues since he began to broadcast on television. Why did Secretary Hilda Solis set Glenn off on a discussion that covered everything from new farming regulations to the Civil Rights Movement to the history of the Soviet Union? It was Glenn at his best, and a monologue that truly must be seen to be appreciated.

He started off the show by discussing proposed new regulations on farms that would limit the role of children in agricultural businesses, which would dramatically alter age old roles of youths on farms.

The Springfield News-Leader expains:

Proposed changes to federal child labor laws could interfere with that. The changes would place heavy restrictions on the type of work that kids can do on farms — even family farms.

The U.S. Department of Labor opted to revisit its proposed regulations, so kids under 16 may not be able to work on their grandparents’ or other relatives farms in the future, if those family farms have been incorporated. The 51-page document up for debate offers restrictions on kids working in livestock pens, operating farm machinery, using power tools, climbing ladders, and working specified hours.

These changes are being spearheaded by Hilda Solis and the Department of Labor.

But as Glenn sees it, this is just the latest example of the government attempting to “co-parent”, and as a result of the interference children will ultimately lose out on the vital, character-building effects of having to know how to work at a young age. As a result, they will likely value their independence less and rely more on government than their selves when they grow older.

“Life isn’t easy but it is so much easier when you work hard,” Glenn said. The regulations will rob children of this lesson.

“They will learn to be a hard-working free man, and not a slave,” he added.

Glenn, of course, does not mean a slave in the way African Americans were enslaved prior to the Civil War, but in the sense of a group of people being ruled over by another, in this case a slave to the federal government. He said that he fears future generations are losing the ability to be able to stand and say “I am a man” and an individual, not part of a collective.

“I am so tired of these elites telling us what to do,” Glenn said.

“Because I saw hard work from my father, because I saw him have passion for what he did. Because I saw hard work from my grandfather. Because I saw people work themselves to death I happen to have good work ethic and I hope my kids learn it from me.”

“I hope they are as lucky as I am to attract people who have the same values,” Glenn said as he held up a copy of the Wall Street Journal trumpeting the success of GBTV.

“I end up there because of the people I work with,” he said pointing at the article. “Because you understand.

“Our values are being destroyed,” he warned. “Our culture is being destroyed.”

Glenn said people need to look back to the founding documents and to see the rights that man is endowed with from the Creator: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

“I am a man and I demand to be treated as a man. I make my own choices and I live with the consequences of those choices. I do not answer to you federal government. That’s not how it works,” he said.

Glenn said that when regulations are created that are not good citizens are required by The Declaration of Independence to respond.

“I hope to God we are not there yet, but you could make that case. And I’m so sorry if the media finds that dangerous speech. Is it dangerous now to quote the founding documents?” he said.

He said that if the government asks him to violate his values or give up his rights, he only has one answer: “I will not comply”. He admitted it would not be easy, the consequences might even be scary, but he will stand for what he believes in.

Glenn concluded the monologue with a look back at historical examples of overreaching federal regulation.

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
