Is this America’s Sumner moment?

Right now, we're playing out the same patterns that have occurred throughout history: we will follow whoever will give us stability. Time and time again, people have ignored evil and jump through crazy hoops in order to "keep their stuff".

During the radio show today, Glenn told the story of Charles Sumner, an abolitionist Senator who was attacked on the Senate floor by pro-slavery rival Congressman Preston Brooks. Glenn said that Sumner and his allies were the Tea Party of the day.

Brooks only received a fine for the attack and no jail time, and in the South was cheered for his actions. He ended up resigning his seat in the House of Representatives.

Glenn said that back during the Civil War and the end of slavery, the people in the South were willing to do anything in order to maintain their property. As Glenn put it, they would do anything to "keep their stuff".

Today, Glenn said people are doing the same thing. They are being told by the government that if we don't support the rebels in the Syria the region will be destabilized, so people go along with it so they "keep their stuff" and maintain stability.

Glenn said that it doesn't make sense the United States would suddenly find itself at the "red line" with the Syrian government after 98,000 have already been killed in the war because a hundred people were attacked with a chemical weapon.

"Now, I want you to understand, 98,000 people have been killed by Assad. 98,000 people. Why did that happen? That happened because the Middle East went unstable. Why did that happen? Because somebody saw a guy set himself on fire in Tunisia, then they saw a little thing in Egypt happen, the Arab spring, then it went to Algeria and Libya. Then the people in Syria said well, we have a dictator too. Maybe we should stand up, because this is the way of the world," Glenn said.

Glenn warned that the same intelligence people who said Benghazi was a spontaneous uprising resulting from a YouTube video are the same ones saying Syria used chemical weapons.

"They know that it was a YouTube video and we should listen to them and go give arms and send our troops to work with the people who are eating others on the battlefield. Why? Because we want our stuff," Glenn said.

Why did people in the South cheer on Sumner? "Because they wanted their stuff," Glenn said. "People were property. What the argument was in the south was, if you get rid of slaves, we're wiped out economically. We've not nothing economically your life as you know it is over. And so people were willing to jump through any crazy hoops to be able to keep their stuff."

"Man's story always repeats itself. We are repeating it again. We are giving arms to cannibals. Why? Because were being told by our government, our leaders, who we should not trust, we are being told that if this falls apart, then all your stuff a gone."

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
