Amazing speech by... Ashton Kutcher?

Ashton Kutcher has earned a reputation for being pretty far left, but during an acceptance speech at last weekend’s Teen Choice Awards, Kutcher surprised many with his articulate message of hard work, kindness, and generosity.

Kutcher, who is currently promoting his role of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs in the upcoming biopic "Jobs", received the “Ultimate Choice Award” and began his speech by revealing that his first name is actually Chris. He then shared the most important lessons he has learned to the audience of squealing teens.

“So, let me play this speech that is burning up the internet today,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “It's a fairly safe to say that viewers don't tune in to the Teen Choice Awards in hopes of hearing an incredibly insightful advice about the hard work of hard work perseverance and dreaming because that's exactly what they got there.”

Watch Kutcher’s speech below:

“Let me ask you a question. Let me ask you a question,” Glenn said. “How do we not agree? How is it that? The people in the camp of Ashton Kutcher think that I'm the antichrist. And so many of us think he's the antichrist… Quite honestly, there's many on the left and right that are just like those teens in the audience… they are not even listening to him. They are not even listening to him. But if that's not something that ties the stereotypical left and the right together…”

In the past, Kutcher has raised eyebrows because of his overt support of liberal causes and politicians like President Obama. In 2009, he and then wife Demi Moore participated in a creepy Obama ad that had them pledging to “be a servant to our president.”

But Glenn was quick to point out the ever-growing difference between liberals and progressives, which would explain why someone like Kutcher could have values that aren't all that different from Glenn's.

“I really truly believe there's a huge difference between a liberal and a progressive. And that's why I've been urging, please, please, let's make sure we're careful with our language because you can be liberal. I have good friends who are liberal,” Glenn explained. “Now, if they are progressive, that's different. But I can't get them to see the difference. The difference is, you want to control other peoples lives. And all of my liberal friends don't.”

“You want to talk about heart? You want to talk about compassion,” Glenn asked. “Good. Let's talk about compassion. And we can join on many things on compassion. We can join on let's help the poor. Now, we may not agree on all of the programs. But unless you are a Progressive, you are a small government person. And you're saying: Let's find the capitalist. Let's find the companies out there that want to take this on as a problem. Let's go find the people out there that want to do it. Let's go find the churches. Let's encourage them to do it. Not through government policies. Not through handouts. Not through redistribution of wealth. Let's go help. You'll get everybody on board because we're not that far apart. This is what he's saying. Here is the American position.”

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"
