Glenn agrees with… socialist revolutionary Russell Brand?

Ok, to be clear - Glenn definitely does NOT agree the socialist revolutionary part of Russell Brand’s comments. That said, on radio this morning, Glenn argued that we must recognize the truths Brand articulated in a very candid interview with the BBC’s Newsnight.

During the interview, Brand openly call for a socialist-style “revolution” and the “massive redistribution of wealth,” he also urged people not to vote or participate in the “facade” that is modern-day politics. In his opinion, “the lies, treachery, and deceit of the political class that has been going on for generations” makes voting a pointless.

“When you hear people talking about revolution in Europe, you should be very concerned because the way revolution is understood in Europe is that the right is fascist and the left is communist. And those are your only two choices,” Glenn explained. “America has so discredited herself with progressivism over the last 100 years, nobody believes in true freedom, nobody believes in the power of the individual, that all men were created equal and endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. And everybody in Europe doesn’t look to us as an example. They say, ‘They are just like us. Just like us.’”

“So when you hear people, especially in Europe, talk about revolution, and you talk about hot revolution, people in the streets. Warning. It's not going to end well,” he continued. “If you thought Russell Brand was a total and complete moron before, here he is sitting in a very expensive hotel room talking about how much he hates the rich.”

Watch the interview from Newsnight below:

In the interview, Brand blames his addiction to drugs on the evil corporations. While Glenn found himself in agreement with Brand that “large corporations [i.e. Google and GE] are coopted by the Federal government.” No one can blame his/her addiction on a corporation.

“If anything, the government is doing things to prevent you from becoming a drug addict. Whether or not they should do this. They are talking about substances that cause addiction illegal,” Stu said. “I don't think the government is getting you addicted to drugs.”

BRAND: …also don't feel like they want to engage with the current political system because they see it doesn't work for them. They see it makes no difference. They see they are not served.

REPORTER: Of course it doesn’t work for them, if they don’t bother to vote.

BRAND: Jeremy, my darling, the apathy doesn't come from us the people. The apathy comes from the politicians. They are apathetic to our needs. They are only interested in servicing the needs of corporations. I mean look at the Tories taking the EU to court because they are trying to curtail the bank bonuses. Isn’t that what’s happening at the moment in our country? Isn’t it?

“Stop for a second. The guy is a moron, Stu. But what part of this is not accurate.” Glenn asked. “They don't care about the average person. Government does not care about the average person. They only care about their ‘real’ constituents, the ones who have money, the corporations.”

“Because we know what he is actually saying. He's saying the answer to this is much, much, much more government,” Stu responded. “I know his answer.”

“I know that, but we didn't get to the answer yet. And this is the problem. This is how they are going to win, if we don't recognize that what he's saying in the first half is 80% true,” Glenn pleaded. “Government is not making you a drug addict. That's your choice. That's a Marxist philosophy – that government always controls me. No, no, no it doesn't. Even in a concentration camp. You still have a choice. So the government doesn't control your choices, you do. Beyond that, everything else that he is saying here so far is pretty fair.”

Pat was still not convinced. “I don't know about that,” he said. “I don't know about that.”

“You are telling me that our government – and I know he's talking about England, which is further down the road than we are,” Glenn said. “But you are telling me that our government cares more about the individual than they do their real constituents of power, labor, and corporations?”

“No, but he's saying much more than that,” Pat reiterated. “He's blaming not just the government. He's blaming the corporations – because they make money, they are causing other people to be poor. He's saying it. He's about to. He's blaming his drug addiction on corporations!”

Glenn, however, still believed Pat and Stu were being too narrow minded.

“See, here's the problem. 80% of what he's saying is true. 20% of what he's saying – no. Guys, if we don't recognize, we'll never be able to recognize,” Glenn reiterated. “If we don't recognize that the system is no longer set up to listen nor care about the individual. They will do smoke and mirrors to the individual, but all they care about is the people in power, the people that have money, giant corporations, or labor. That's all they care about.”

“Second thing, I agree, we're erasing the middle class. The world's middle class in the last 10 years is being slowly erased. We are being impoverished. And you watch what is going to happen with the Fed. As they devalue our money, those who are in the know, those who are playing the game, they are going to have money… You won't have it,” he continued. “And so, the government, the elites, the corporations, labor, anybody who is in the special groups, they will be able to survive… We're headed toward cataclysmic shifts on that because we no longer believe in true freedom. His answer to the problems are wrong. His answers are wrong because he doesn't understand what America stood for and really means. But most Americans don't either.”

Shortly after appearing on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" last Thursday, Los Angeles-based emergency medicine specialist Dr. Simone Gold got a call saying she was fired for speaking out about the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in a now-banned viral video.

Dr. Gold returned to the radio program Monday to detail exactly what happened, the reason the hospitals gave for her firing, and how they threatened to fire her colleagues as well if she "didn't go quietly."

"Most emergency physicians work at more than one [hospital], as I do, and I've actually been fired from both," she told Glenn. "They told me that I appeared in an embarrassing video, and therefore, I would no longer be welcome to work there ... then they said, if I didn't go quietly and I made a fuss, they would have all the doctors in the group, you know, they'd have to go and they'll get a whole new doctor group."

Dr. Gold said she does not regret speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during the controversial "White Coat Summit" news conference held in Washington, D.C., last week. A video of the news conference quickly went viral on social media before being removed by Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and others for allegedly making false claims related to COVID-19.

"Bring it on," she said. "I want to continue to live in America. I want my children to continue to live in America. I don't want them to grow up in a place like China. When you get to a point where, not only can I not speak as a scientist, as a doctor, for what I know to be absolutely true, but you then want to cancel me and my colleagues, this is not okay. I would much rather fight than not fight ... and I want everybody to know that there are literally millions and millions of Americans who are on our side. Millions. I believe it's the majority."

Glenn then asked Dr. Gold to weigh in on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's new guidelines encouraging schools to reopen in the fall and the left's relentless drive to keep them closed.

"There's no actual scientific debate whatsoever if schools should open. None. There's no scientific debate. There's no serious person who thinks schools shouldn't open. Now, [through] some governors and policy makers, there's pressure being brought to bear on school districts, but there's no actual scientific debate. So it's going to come down to parents pressuring their local school districts to act in a responsible fashion."

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld joined Glenn on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to talk about his new book, "The Plus: Self-Help for People Who Hate Self-Help."

Greg admits he is probably the last person who should write a self-help book. Nevertheless, he offers his offbeat advice on how to save America during what has become one of the most tumultuous times in history, as well as drinking while tweeting (spoiler: don't do it).

He also shares his "evolution" on President Donald Trump, his prediction for the election, and what it means to be an agnostic-atheist.

In this clip, Greg shares what he calls his "first great epiphany" on how dangerous cancel culture has become.

"I believe that cancel culture is the first successful work-around of the First Amendment," he said. "Because freedom of speech doesn't protect me from my career being ruined, my livelihood being destroyed, or me getting so depressed I commit suicide. Cancel culture is the first successful work-around of freedom of speech. It can oppress your speech with the scepter of destruction. We don't have freedom of speech anymore."

Dr. Simone Gold joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to set the record straight about hydroxychloroquine -- what it is, how it works, and the real reason for all the current controversy surrounding a centuries-old medication.

Dr. Gold is a board certified emergency physician. She graduated from Chicago Medical School before attending Stanford University Law School. She completed her residency in emergency medicine at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York, and worked in Washington D.C. for the Surgeon General, as well for the chairman of the Committee on Labor and Human Resources. She works as an emergency physician on the front lines, whether or not there is a pandemic, and her clinical work serves all Americans from urban inner city to suburban and the Native American population. Her legal practice focuses on policy issues relating to law and medicine.

She is also the founder of America's frontline doctors, a group of doctors who have been under attack this week for speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during a news conference held outside the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

On the program, Dr. Gold emphasized that the controversy over hydroxychloroquine is a "complete myth."

"Hydroxychloroquine is an analogue or a derivative of quinine, which is found in tree bark. It's the most noncontroversial of medications that there is," she explained.

"It's been around for centuries and it's been FDA-approved in the modern version, called hydroxychloroquine, for 65 years. In all of that time, [doctors] used it for breast-feeding women, pregnant women, elderly, children, and immune compromised. The typical use is for years or even decades because we give it mostly to RA, rheumatoid arthritis patients and lupus patients who need to be on it, essentially, all of their life. So, we have extensive experience with it ... it's one of the most commonly used medications throughout the world."

Dr. Gold told Glenn she was surprised when the media suddenly "vomited all over hydroxychloroquine", but initially chalked it up to the left's predictable hatred for anything President Donald Trump endorses. However, when the media gave the drug Remdesivir glowing reviews, despite disappointing clinical trial results, she decided to do some research.

"[Remdesivir] certainly wasn't a fabulous drug, but the media coverage was all about how fabulous it was. At that moment, I thought that was really weird. Because it's one thing to hate hydroxychloroquine because the president [endorsed] it. But it's another thing to give a free pass to another medicine that doesn't seem that great. I thought that was really weird, so I started looking into it. And let me tell you, what I discovered was absolutely shocking," she said.

According to the mainstream media's COVID-19 narrative, the president is "ignoring" the crisis.

On tonight's "Glenn TV" special, Glenn Beck exposes the media's last four months of political theater that has helped shape America's confusion and fear over coronavirus. And now, with a new school year looming on the horizon, the ongoing hysteria has enormous ramifications for our children, but the media is working overtime to paint the Trump administration as anti-science Neanderthals who want to send children and teachers off to die by reopening schools.

Glenn fights back with the facts and interviews the medical doctor Big Tech fears the most. Dr. Simone Gold, founder of America's Frontline Doctors, stands up to the media's smear campaign and explains why she could no longer stay silent in her fight against coronavirus fear.
