Media Matters misses the point on Talkers speech

Yesterday, Glenn spoke out about the importance of protecting free speech during the Talkers NYC 2013 conference. Glenn was honored with the Freedom of Speech award, and took the time to talk about why it's important to protect all speech, especially speech that some might find offensive. Media Matters, the disgraced and discredited boycott-leading blog, once again managed to miss the point.

"I gave a speech yesterday. I won the Freedom of Speech award yesterday here in New York City, and I gave a speech, and Media Matters was standing right there. They were practically on the stage. I'm not kidding you, practically on the stage and they were videotaping the whole thing. And it's a freedom of speech award and so I used and exercised my freedom of speech," Glenn said.

During the speech, Glenn spoke about the importance of protecting the right of freedom of speech, but also emphasized that people should be responsible in how they exercise that right. He specifically pointed out that while cartoonists could draw mocking images of the Prophet Muhammad, it doesn't mean that they should.

“But should you have the right to do it? Yes. But this society focuses on rights and not responsibilities," Glenn said.

He added, “Any role that I have played in dividing, I wish I could take it back — I don’t wish I could take back the truth that was spoken, but [many] times I could’ve said it differently."

So that whole “protect the rights of those we vehemently disagree with” message really didn’t resonate with the disgraced and discredited Media Matters blog, best known for attempting to lead ineffective boycotts against anyone they disagree with. The “dopes” from MMFA provided their (un)insightful analysis of Glenn’s speech to the press which boiled down to: “Uh, we don’t believe it.”

"Brand repair doesn't happen immediately," the MMFA representative said. "It's a process. Beck knows that. This soft contrition seemed like an attempt to advance that slow process. I'm not sure this will be effective, though, given that his approach hasn't really changed."

Please, tell us more before you retreat further into irrelevancy...

Why would the AP, and by extension other media outlets, decide to include such uninsightful commentary from a disgraced blogger whose whole career is based around attacking the First Amendment rights of those he disagrees with?

"Well, it's not a new Glenn Beck, you dope," Glenn said. "It's the same Glenn Beck that has been here that everyone has heard that doesn't have an agenda."

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.
