Rapper explains the benefits of carrying an ACLU card in bizarre marketing video

There is a new marketing blitz from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) that seems to suggest Americans must carry around an ACLU card in order to guarantee their First Amendment rights. The ad features award-winning rapper Macklemore crudely explaining the protections an ACLU card supposedly offers him.

“Now there's this ACLU rapper, and I don't think the ACLU understands freedom. I agree with them on a few things, not a lot, but I agree with them on a few things. [But] they think their ACLU card is what saves people, and that's not what saves people. The Constitution is what saves people,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “And the ACLU, for years, has worked against the Constitution. This was started by communists, literally started by communists, and they were to dismantle the Constitution. But there is a really interesting ad for the ACLU, and they're trying to mimic the, you know, 'I don't leave home without it’ kind of credit card ads.”

Watch the ad below (Warning: Video contains strong language):

“Now I have a Kroger card,” Pat joked. “That helps me be better. I think I can marry the hell out of a sirloin steak, can't I? Can I do that? Or can I just buy the hell out of the sirloin steak?”

While Pat and Stu couldn’t understand the purpose or benefit of the video, Glenn found it to be a “brilliant” marketing strategy.

“That's a brilliant campaign,” Glenn said. “Here's the brilliant ad: ‘It's the card that allows my gay friends to marry the hell out of each other.’ That will print. It will be a very effective ad.”

“But it's not. It's not the ACLU card. And in certain states, you're going to find out with your ACLU card you can't marry the hell out of your partner because it's against the law. And the ACLU card doesn't make it legal,” Pat retorted. “So it's a dumb campaign. I'm sure it will [be effective], but a lot of people are going to be disappointed when they show it and they can't marry the hell out of their partner.”

Even if that particular portion of the video may make for a buzz worthy ad, Glenn, Pat, and Stu reiterated that First Amendment rights come from and are protected by the Constitution.

“Think about this, though: With the ACLU card you can remind yourself of what are just Constitutional rights. But the TEA Party is crazy for their pocket Constitutions,” Stu explained. “In theory what is the difference?”

“Here it is. The pocket Constitution empowers you. The ACLU card empowers them,” Glenn said. “The whole world is about getting rid of the middleman and yet, the middlemen want the power. People say, ‘The thing I don't like about the TEA Party is there's no central command.’ Excuse me? Well, I guess we could have a board someplace, and we could fill it with Karl Roves and they could decide who you get to vote for. What's wrong with people? It's gonna be messy. That's what life is. It's gonna be messy.”

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
