Glenn debates Pat & Stu on 49ers quarterback controversy

If you're a fan of Glenn's, it's no secret that he's not exactly a "guy's guy" when it comes to sports. Honestly, he may not know the difference between a touchdown, home run, field goal, birdie or free throw — so it’s always a dicey situation when he weighs in on sports talk. And this morning when the recent controversy around San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick came up, it wasn't pretty.

You see, over the weekend, the NFL quarterback was photographed wearing the hat of an opposing team: the Miami Dolphins. According to Pat, the $7 million dollars the 49ers are paying him should buy "a little bit of loyalty". The fans are apparently hacked off, and Kaepernick doesn't see what the big deal is…and neither does Glenn.

Glenn noted that 'it's not like he gave the playbook to a competing team.'

"It would be like you wearing a fascism t-shirt or a communism hat," Stu responded.

"Or MSNBC. Would you wear an MSNBC cap?" Pat asked.

The obvious answer was 'no'. Glenn despises those things, which is what Stu explained should be happening in football, before making Glenn listen to ESPN's Colin Cowher's rant on Kaepernick.

"49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick wore a Miami Dolphins hat this weekend.  Social media this weekend, hey, look at me, I'm wearing a Dolphins hat.  Fans in San Francisco a little ticked off.  Kaepernick, the on‑field CEO of the team. I'm going to wear it regardless of what you fans think.  Ridiculous.  Y'all must be bored.  No, Kaepernick, you‑all must be really immature.  Because we need borders in life.  They're really important.  Any of you have kids? Ever tell them don't talk to strangers? Never get into a car if mom and dad aren't there? Don't swim without an adult? Don't let people you don't know touch you?  Those are borders.  They're not laws. They're borders.  They're guidelines. Not everything has to be a law to be important.  Borders are clear lines in the sand, often unspoken.  There is a right way to do business and a wrong way to do it.  Oh, this hat's trivial, right?  You think MSNBC is cool if Rachel Maddow wears Fox News gear in public?"

Glenn stopped the audio. He had a point to make.

"Do you know what my luggage says on it?" he asked. "CNN."

"Do you know what my shaving kit says?" Glenn continued. "Fox News."

"Have your picture taken with that stuff," Jeffy interjected.

"Somebody run to the hotel and get my luggage and my shaving kit. I want to take my picture with it today."

So clearly this isn't a big issue with Glenn…that said, Glenn owns his own network, Kaepernick doesn't own his football team. Chances are he'll have a few more people to answer to.

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."
