Huffington Post offers Glenn some unsolicited advice on ‘uniting’ principles

During an appearance on Fox News’ The Kelly File last month, Glenn candidly explained that he wished he could have broken through the noise and focused more on the “uniting principles” while he was on the network. In a new article, Huffington Post blogger Wayne Baker has taken it upon himself to offer Glenn some insight into the uniting principles he “should have talked about.”

“So The Huffington Post wrote, I think, an amazing article called, ‘The uniting principles Glenn Beck should have talked about,’” Glenn said on radio this morning.

In the blog, Baker writes:

Incivility can be fun. It was for Glenn Beck, he recently admitted in a Fox News interview. Looking back on his career at Fox, he apologized for the divisiveness he promoted, wishing that he "could have talked about the uniting principles a little more." Rather than a conservative warrior in the culture wars, he revealed himself to be a culture war profiteer who enriched himself by supplying the conflict. And he's not the only one.

“I think I should have said [to Megyn Kelly was], ‘I wish people noticed we were talking about uniting principles, and I wish I could have found a way to cut through all of the noise with those,’” Glenn explained. “I mean I do happen to remember on the set faith, hope, and charity paintings.”

“And there's the 9/12 Project,” Stu added. “And if you had any meaning behind those numbers, perhaps, you know, the nine principles and 12 values, something like that...”

Baker lays out 10 values he has come up with based on newly released research he conducted at the University of Michigan Institute for Social Research. These values, he claims, are strongly and widely held across demographic, religious, and political lines.

Glenn read through the 10 values and took a look at how he stacks up:

1. Respect for others

“I talked about Bonheoffer and Gandhi,” Glenn said. “Remember me on TV saying: Let's respect people who are different than us.’ Let's respect the Muslims who are different from us. And let's respect the Jews. But let's not have respect per se for people who say let's kill another.”

2. Equal opportunity

“I think I was talking about equal opportunity all the time,” Glenn said.

“We just don't talk about equal outcome,” Pat added. “That's all.”

3. Freedom

“Huff-Po is lecturing me that I should talk about the founding of the United States,” Glenn asked exasperatedly.

4. Security

“So maybe I should spend a little more time talking about the lack of surveillance or how we should not surveil our people,” Glenn asked. “That's one of the things that I should talk about?”

5. Self-reliance and individualism

“I'm the one who says ‘Hey, you should be self-reliant – have some gold, have some food on hand,’” Glenn said. “No, I'm not self-reliant. I'm a prepper. I should be made fun of. We should be mocked. You should be ridiculed. No, no, that's not self-reliance. That's just crazy.”

6. Justice and fairness

“Did you miss every show I've ever done,” Glenn asked. “Yes, not social justice. And social justice is in direct opposition to justice. Social justice is not blind. Justice is blind. Social justice has big magnifying glasses on.”

7. Pursuit of happiness

“Glenn Beck have talk about the pursuit of happiness,” Glenn quipped.

The final three values are “getting ahead,” “symbolic patriotism,” and “critical patriotism,” but Glenn had had enough.

“I can't take it. I can't take it. I can't take it. But thank you for the lecture on the values that I should have been talking about,” Glenn said. “Let me re-write your headline: These are the 10 values that the Huffington Post and others like the Huffington Post should open their ears and eyes to.”

“Check out the 9-12 Project – the values and the principles. Just check that one out because that's all in there. That's all we talked about. You didn't listen because that didn't fit your agenda. But now that you see the tide is turning...” he continued. “God give me strength to be lectured by these people because it is just sometimes more than I can handle.”

Thanks to a recent report from the Federalist, we now know of an ‘insidious’ White House plan to significantly alter commercial sales of ammunition. Not only would this plot skyrocket the price of ammunition for everyday consumers, but it could create a national security risk by limiting one factory’s ability to produce for the military under war-time demand as well.

Larry Keane, from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to detail this White House move, and he explained how he knows the government is lying about it, too.

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.

The Associated Press has issued a dire warning for abortion providers ahead of the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade.

According to an article titled "'Heightened alert’: Abortion providers brace for ruling," abortion clinics nationwide are expecting an increase in "protests, harassment, and other violence ... in states where abortion remains legal" if Roe v. Wade is overturned — as a draft opinion leaked in May suggested is likely to happen.

"On the night of last winter’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that could end the nationwide right to abortion, people gathered outside a clinic in New Jersey with lawn chairs, a cooler and a flaming torch — a sight that brought to mind lynchings and other horrors of the country’s racist past," the AP article began.

The article did go on to cite two incidents of extreme anti-abortion violence — "the 1993 killing of Dr. David Gunn outside a Florida abortion clinic [and] the 2015 fatal shooting of three people inside a Colorado Planned Parenthood." But there was almost no mention of the ongoing attacks on pregnancy crisis centers by pro-choice activists, including the violent group that calls itself "Jane’s Revenge."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck noted that the closest the current administration has come to calling out Jane’s Revenge was when the Department of Homeland Security published a terror advisory warning of crime on both sides of the Roe v. Wade debate earlier this month. But when was the last time you heard about violent attacks on pro-life centers in the corporate media? There have been several instances of violence by pro-choice proponents, and the Biden administration remains silent.

GLENN: Now the righteous generation of the woke has reached such a level of holiness that it cannot possibly be contaminated by name of a less righteous monster like George Washington. Student insists the university must break its ties with white supremacy and systematic racism by canceling its 200 year old name and renaming it. Are you ready? Malcolm X University.
