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."

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."

The World Economic Forum isn't trying to hide its plans for the Great Reset. Details to "reset" the global economy have been published on its own website. Despite that and all the warning signs, many are still quick to refute this master plan as a "conspiracy theory" or as something that will never actually take hold. But as Glenn Beck explained on the radio program Monday, the Great Reset is happening right now in Europe. A huge new development for the Great Reset that could affect not only European businesses, but American ones as well. Businesses — and citizens — may be forced to comply sooner than you think.

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself and he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded in physicality and stop taking so much for granted.

Hanson joined Glenn on the latest "Glenn Beck Podcast" to point out that this needs to happen soon because, as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting pretty bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

In the clip below, Hanson shares a crucial lesson that woke America has forgotten — but surprisingly enough, President Donald Trump never did. Watch the video clip below or find the full podcast here or wherever you listen to podcasts:
