Why are Piers Morgan and Joe Scarborough defending Glenn?

During an appearance on Fox News’ The Kelly File earlier this week, Glenn admitted that he wished he would have done more to talk “about the uniting principles a little more instead of the problems” during his time on the network. His statements apparently took many in the media by surprise, but Glenn has found support from two very unlikely sources: CNN’s Piers Morgan and MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough.

“Here's what I regret saying the other night with Megyn Kelly. I regret leaving out: Has anybody else in the media asked themselves this question? Because all of us are responsible,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “And it’s not only just those in the media. How about all of us across the country? What role have all of us played [in dividing the country]?”

Last night during a segment with Ann Coulter on his CNN show, Morgan actually paused to ask himself that very question. In rare moment of being “self-reflective,” Morgan admitted that when he gets “over angry” or “abusive” to pro-gun advocates during gun debates, it “actually doesn’t help the debate.”

MORGAN: ...Because Glenn Beck was quite brave, I thought, to say what he said. If I'm being self-reflective – it doesn't happen very often – I might as well throw it out there. We mentioned guns. When I've done the guns debate, I can tell when I get over-angry. I get a little bit abusive to the gun people that it actually doesn't help the debate.

“That is good. A very good step,” Glenn said. “How many people in the media are looking for silence to think and to say, ‘What role did I play? Have I played a role? Can I be better today or tomorrow?’ That's what we all should be doing. And apparently Piers Morgan did this.”

MSNBC’s Morning Joe also got in on the action with Scarborough finding Glenn’s comments to be sincere.

“Joe Scarborough is not a guy who's never been friendly to us,” Glenn said. “And I don't think we've ever been friendly to him…When I left Fox, he said, ‘You'll figure out that, without Roger Ales, he's nothing.’ I mean think of the vitriol that guy had for me.”

SCARBOROUGH: You know, he came out this past week and also said, ‘If you are anti-gay, if you don't like a person because they are gay, you have no place in this country, don't call yourself a fan of mine.

I think what's fascinating about this is that if Glenn Beck were saying all this from a position of weakness that would be one thing. Glenn Beck, from what I saw, made like $90 million dollar last year. He has done on the Internet what the largest corporations in America have tried to do on the Internet. I mean, he has, he has somehow brought together TV and Internet and he's had an extraordinary year financially. So I think that's what's even more telling about this is that he's making these admissions from a position of strength.

I mean what do you think about it, Mika? Let's toss it around the table… By the way, I don't think anybody is more harshly critical of Glenn Beck over the past several years than me. I take him at his worth. But Mika, even some reason he's being conical in these things he's saying – that's even better because that means that he recognizes that there is a market for this sort of inclusive talk… I commend him actually. Not that he needs my commending at all.

“He's giving you the benefit of the doubt either way,” Pat said. “He's taking you at his word. He said that you are sincere. But even if you're not sincere, even if you're doing it for profit that means there's a market for it and you've realize that. You're tapping into. Either way he likes it.”

As Glenn explained, the purpose of TheBlaze is not to play to people’s cynicism. Actually, it’s the complete opposite. TheBlaze’s mission is “[to] tell stories of love and courage where the good guys win.” That mission is so not in line with anything anyone else is doing, however, so it is difficult for people to really comprehend it all.

“It's time they understand. It's time that they see,” Glenn concluded. “Because if we can get just a couple of people on their networks that say: You know what? I don't agree with Glenn Beck on a lot of stuff. He's, he's pro life. I'm pro-abortion. Fine. But you know what? We're not enemies with each other. We're not enemies. We're going to be doing serious battle on that front. But we do believe in the community of man… Are we going to disagree on certain points? Yes… [But] I'm not going to tell you how to live your life. You don't tell me how to live my life. And we can get along.”

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."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
