Why is Glenn so angry?

Glenn has found himself particularly angry over the last few weeks, and this morning on radio, he tried to get to the bottom of his frustrations. He began by telling the story of four friends riding in a car on the freeway.

The story goes like this:

Four friends are riding in the car on the freeway. Just in front of them, there is a car in the left-hand lane. Suddenly it veers into their lane and nearly hits their car. Both cars swerve, screech, and then veer off onto the shoulder.

One the friends wants to get out of the car and “beat the snot” out of the guy in the other car. Another one of the friends is cursing up a storm. The third friend asks if everyone in the car is okay. And the fourth friend decides to get out of the car and make sure the other driver is okay.

Here is a story of four individuals who just experienced the exact same situation but react in four entirely different ways. So what is the moral of the story?

“Here's the truth of this story. The truth of this story and the way this works is guy number one and guy number two aren't really angry or mad at the other driver. Maybe a little bit, but that's not really where their reaction is coming from,” Glenn explained.

“Who are they really mad at? I don't know – their dad, their teacher, a boss who fired them one time. Those are all lies too, but that's who they really think that they're mad at... The driver of the other car gives them the excuse to vent their anger.”

Eleanor Roosevelt famously said: No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. Glenn took a similar approach when considering the root of his own anger, explaining that it is ultimately a choice.

“Yesterday I was angry. I was really angry, and I couldn't take it anymore. And I wondered why. Because this president cannot make me angry, just like this president or another president could ever make me happy,” Glenn said.

“No one can ever make me happy without my permission. No one can ever make me mad without my permission. I choose. I need to do a better job of owning my stuff, owning my own anger, owning my own happiness because if you don't, somebody else owns it for you.”

Next time you find yourself thinking, Man, that person makes me really angry, really stop and consider the source of your frustration. Are you really angry at that particular individual? Or is it something deeper? To that point, Glenn asked the audience for their prayers.

“And may I suggest that you pray for me because I've got to start choosing more wisely and figure out: Am I angry at me? I tried to figure this out last night. Am I angry at me,” Glenn asked. “Maybe I'm angry at me because I let it happen, because I was stupid for all of these years. Am I angry at me because I've tried everything I can and I can't figure out a way to stop it… Am I angry that I have made mistakes in the last 10 years that have put me in the place to where I'm part of the problem and not part of the solution? Or am I just really pissed off at this Marxist in the White House? That could be [it].”

“I'm not sure [though] because we give [President Obama] far too much power in many ways, but emotionally we give him far too much power. We are angry a lot of the time,” he continued. “And I don't know how Gandhi did it. I don't know how Martin Luther King did it. I don't know how. I don't know how they did it, other than they were right in step with the eternal truths. And boy, man, I'm trying. I'm trying.”

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."

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.

First, President Joe Biden nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline, driving the price at the pump through the roof. Now, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg has floated the idea of taxing every mile you drive as a way to pay for Biden's massive infrastructure spending proposal. So much for buying an electric car to save money at the pump. It's almost as if they want you to feel the coming pain as deeply as possible.
