WATCH: Rev. Al Sharpton’s futile attempt to smear Glenn

Over the last couple of weeks, Glenn has called for a new civil rights movement, citing the IRS targeting of conservatives and attacks on people of faith as just a few examples of civil rights violations. And now it seems at least one person is not happy with Glenn’s analysis. MSNBC host Rev. Al Sharpton attempted to smear Glenn on his show last week for daring to compare today’s injustice to the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s.

Touting his civil rights background, Rev. Sharpton said he was the youth director for the organization founded by Martin Luther King Jr., adding that he is still involved with the group.

SHARPTON: I personally get offended by this. I've been in civil rights all my life.  I was made youth director of the organization Dr. King founded when I was 12 years old.  I've been in it ever since and to equate civil rights to fighting on these issues that have nothing to do with any rights that are denied and it's all about their polarization is really offensive. I mean, we can disagree but you don't miscast things as something that it's not.

Rev. Sharpton is specifically referring to a segment from the Glenn Beck Program last week. After appearing at the press conference in Washington D.C., Glenn told Stu:

GLENN: This is a civil rights movement and it's time for us to start moving as a civil rights movement. We have to be willing to have the dogs be unleashed on us because, believe me, after what I saw today on the way they're handling things at the capital, oh, you're not very far from having the same kind of oppression coming our way.

After playing that clip of Glenn on his MSNBC show, Politics Nation, Rev. Sharpton had this to say:

SHARPTON: It's unbelievable. He's talking about imaginary unleashed dogs, when real heroes of the civil rights movement actually had to confront those dangers.  Yesterday Beck made his case at a rally in Washington, but even as he talked about civil rights, the slogans on the signs told the story of fear and paranoia.  It was similar to what we saw at previous Tea Party rallies.

“Oh, man,” Pat said. “Fear and paranoia. There's nothing really going on. The IRS isn't really targeting them.”

“The IRS isn't targeting. The administration hasn't done everything in its power to harm those. He has labeled people enemies,” Glenn said. “That's not an open dialog, an open society by any stretch of the imagination.”

Aside from the IRS, we now also know that the NSA surveillance is beyond our wildest imagination – but, like the Reverend said, there is nothing to see here.

“It is truly amazing where we’re going,” Glenn said. “Tell me about starting a business. Tell me about it. How many people down right now are stopping their jokes about, I don't want to talk to you on the phone, I don't want to have this conversation on e‑mail, and it's nothing – you’re not a terrorist, but you are being made to feel like a terrorist.”

“You are being made to feel like a second‑class citizen,” he concluded. “It is the civil rights movement. It is. We're just early. As I said, we are just early.”

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.
