Last weekend Glenn traveled across our northern border to Canada to give a speech in Toronto. While he was there he sat down for an interview with Brian Lilley of the Sun News Network.
Lilley opened the show by addressing viewers that may only know the Glenn Beck portrayed by America’s mainstream media.
“The liberal media thinks Glenn Beck is crazy. They don’t like him and they don’t like his message. I promise you this, though: If you like my message, smaller government, pro-family, pro-liberty, standing up for the little guy that’s just trying to do his best each and every day to scrap by. Well, if you like that message, then you’ll like Glenn Beck.”
He went on to tell viewers not to listen to the same people that would likely call his message “crazy” or call him a “racist,” and to listen to his message.
“When I sat down with Glenn last week, I was struck by how genuine, warm, and engaging he was – by his grasp of the issues. And I think you will be too,” Brian Lilley went on to say.
Lilley went on to give a brief history of Glenn, his early career accomplishments; overcoming his battle with alcoholism, and Glenn’s book, The Seven Wonders That Will Change Your Life, where he tells his story and how he turned his life around. He also told viewers that he believed they were really going to like what Glenn had to say about the entitlement culture and the need for charity.
During the interview below, Glenn touched on the Middle East and the Arab Spring – a topic on which the two shared many of the same views. During the twenty minute interview they also discussed Israel, Greece and the European financial crisis, Jesus, charity, among other topics. Glenn also discussed the powerful message he has been sending to America’s churches, urging them to remind their congregants that it’s our responsibility to help those in need.
