Glenn responds to the Newtown ‘truthers’

With the one month anniversary of the school shooting in Newtown just coming to pass, it appears as though the conspiracy theorists are out in full force. According to TheBlaze, a growing group of people are claiming that the entire tragedy was a government manufactured hoax or that it never happened at all.

Unfortunately, we have come to expect ‘truther’ claims in the wake of inexplicable events (most notably after September 11). And on radio this morning, Glenn reacted to the conspiratorial stories, blaming people’s growing distrust of the government for the trend.

First and foremost, there has been a movement away from the principles of self-regulation and self-governance. The Founders were able to stipulate the rights of the Second Amendment because people understood the power of the gun. There was an understanding that it was something to help defend. Fast forward to today, and our culture has changed dramatically. Our society is no longer guided by those same values.

“Our society is sick. Our families are sick. And they're under attack. The family unit is being destroyed. God, country, family – all of them are under attack,” Glenn said. “Why is this happening? Because we refuse to recognize God, country, family. We refuse to say what my relationship to my family is. What is the importance of my relationship with God? What is my duty, my responsibility to my country? I say, ‘What is my country doing for me,’ instead of ‘What can I do for my country?’”

Furthermore, the meanings of what is the truth and what is a right have become relative because we have moved away from God. “There is no such thing as an inalienable right,” he said. “I have a right to defend myself. How do I know that? Because it happens in nature… You have a right to defend yourself because God gave you that, but there is no inalienable right anymore.”

People are more willing to believe anything because no one is pegged to the truth. There is no universal truth. No natural truth. No natural God. No God's law. “Go find the truth, and then guard it,” Glenn continued. “Because there are a lot of people coming out now who will tell you the ‘truth’ because you don't believe in anything. You don't know who to trust anymore.”

“Here's what happened in Sandy hook,” Glenn said. “He is a madman because he's unstable by birth; because he's on mind altering medications? I don't know, maybe. Because of the combination of the two? I don't know, maybe. Because he was playing these games all the time and he had found himself more and more isolated? I don't know, maybe. I can tell you this: the guns didn't make him do it. The guns were a tool. Guns have saved a lot of people. They're not inherently evil; it's what you decide to do with them.”

“I know he's responsible,” he continued. “What helped play a role? Maybe he's just insane? I don't know. But I can tell you, it wasn't the gun. And it wasn't the government. The government didn't set this kid up. The government didn't coax this kid. The funerals were real. They happened… Those weren’t actors. Those were real, real funerals, and those were real people.”

While the government did not create this situation that is not to say it did not play a role in the aftermath. “Don't consume any of the poison… Because that's exactly what it is,” Glen said. “Here's what the government did do – exploited it. The government is great at not wasting an emergency… They waited and they exploited it. It's not a conspiracy. It is a danger to the Republic.”

"I fear we're going to be so fragmented because no one will trust each other,” Glenn concluded. “If you stand for something true, understand that just like all the people that stood for real truth, you will be totally alone in the end. May God give us all strength to remain standing and remain true.”

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."
