Glenn rips Mediaite's weak Chic-fil-A slam

There is a growing viewpoint in our society that is becoming more and more prevalent every day. Many on the left and in the media have been equating standing for something to being a 'hate monger' or 'oppressive.'

This morning on radio, Glenn commented on an article on Mediate that serves as a perfect representation. The article slammed Mike Huckabee for organizing 'Chic-fil-A Appreciation Day' in defense of Dan Cathy, founder of the fast-food chain. In a recent interview, Cathy explained stated the following comments:

"We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that…We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles."

Cathy has since come under heavy fire from activists on the left and the media of being "anti-gay marriage," however, his comments never even addressed the issue of gay marriage. He merely stated what it is he and his family stood for.

Glenn described Mediaite's article as "just plain awful."

Here's the nasty, sarcastic start:

"Here in America, a nation founded on the principles of fairness and equality, there is a terrible injustice going on. In our country, a country where we thought people were free, a group is being horribly oppressed. That group, of course, is fast food chicken chain Chick-fil-A. Their God-given right to oppress gay people has been totally ruined by the decision of some people to say totally mean things about them. Fortunately, Mike Huckabee is here to save the day and defend Chick-fil-A’s right to be anti-gay!"

"Why can't people just be for something without hating something?" Glenn asked. "I don't buy corn flakes because I like frosted flakes. That doesn't make me anti-corn flakes. That means I am pro-frosted flakes."

"When did we become a society where if you are for something you have to hate?" Glenn added.

Glenn pointed out that Cathy's comments were a statement for traditional marriage, there wasn't a slam on gay marriage there - the media is creating one.

Now, not only is the media taking our opinions out of context, they're slamming those who support those who come under attack.

Glenn pointed out that "freedom of speech is freedom of speech." Just because Americans disagree with each other from time to time doesn't mean we have to boycott each other. Mike Huckabee and Glenn don't agree on every issue. As Glenn pointed out, they disagree vehemently on a few issues, but they still show each other respect. They don't try and put each other out of business.

"Mike and I, even though we disagree with each other, we still treat each other with respect. He's still a decent human being. He's doing his show, and doing it the way he thinks it should be done," Glenn said. "Good for him. I celebrate for the fact that somebody that doesn't my opinion on everything has his own show."

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.
