Glenn agrees with… Andrew Sullivan and Slate

Glenn has been talking about the importance of finding common ground with people of all ideologies. As a result, you may find yourself aligning with strange bedfellows every once in a while. After hearing the news that, following weeks of controversy over his $1,000 donation to Proposition 8, Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich resigned, Glenn passionately defended Eich’s right to free speech and free expression. As it turns out, openly gay leftist author and blogger Andrew Sullivan and Slate’s William Saletan have both condemned the movement that led to Eich’s ouster as well.

“When you find yourself standing next to somebody and saying, ‘Holy cow. They're right, and I never thought I would say that about that individual.’ That's when you know you're on the right track,” Glenn said. “I want you to know, when you come into these positions, you can either choose to be what people on the extremes of each side are… or you can actually be a better human being and say, ‘Yeah, I may disagree with them on a lot of things, but on this one, they're right’… Andrew Sullivan and Slate [are] not people I generally find myself in agreement with.”

In a post on his blog The Dish on Thursday, Sullivan had this to say of Eich’s resignation:

Will he now be forced to walk through the streets in shame? Why not the stocks? The whole episode disgusts me – as it should disgust anyone interested in a tolerant and diverse society. If this is the gay rights movement today – hounding our opponents with a fanaticism more like the religious right than anyone else – then count me out. If we are about intimidating the free speech of others, we are no better than the anti-gay bullies who came before us.

“Amen. Andrew Sullivan, I commend you,” Glenn said. “We don't agree on very much, I'm sure. You will probably think I'm the stereotype that you make for religious people… I hope someday that we'll be able to have a conversation, so you can see that not all religious people – in fact, most religious people are not like that. But amen on this, brother. Amen. I stand with you.”

Over at Slate, Saletan took a pithier approach to the topic. His article, which is entitled “Purge the bigots,” begins on an interesting note. “Brendan Eich is just the beginning,” he writes. “Let’s oust everyone who donated to the campaign against gay marriage.”

As it turns out, Saletan actually spends the rest of the article sarcastically arguing the insanity of that point:

Some of my colleagues are celebrating. They call Eich a bigot who got what he deserved. I agree. But let’s not stop here. If we’re serious about enforcing the new standard, thousands of other employees who donated to the same anti-gay ballot measure must be punished.

More than 35,000 people gave money to the campaign for Proposition 8, the 2008 ballot measure that declared, “Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.” You can download the entire list, via the Los Angeles Times, as a compressed spreadsheet. (Click the link that says, “Download CSV.”) Each row lists the donor’s employer. If you organize the data by company, you can add up the total number of donors and dollars that came from people associated with that company.Looking at the list from the LA Times, you find more than 1,300 individuals from 37 companies gave nearly $1 million to the campaign for Prop 8. Furthermore, 435 people from 25 tech companies gave more than $300,000.

“Many of these employees gave $1,000 apiece, if not more,” Saleton writes. “Some, like Eich, are probably senior executives. Why do these bigots still have jobs? Let’s go get them.”

Saletan took the “purge” a step further, compiling the financial data into three tables that show where the support for Prop 8 was coming from. With that data now clearly organized, Saleton end the article with the following conclusion:

If we’re serious about taking down corporate officers who supported Proposition 8, and boycotting employers who promote them, we'd better get cracking on the rest of the list. Otherwise, perhaps we should put down the pitchforks.

“Fortunately there's still people who believe in the U.S. Constitution,” Pat said.

“And I contend that they are the majority of Americans both left and right. I really believe that,” Glenn concluded. “We have been taught – to quote South Pacific – very, very carefully taught to hate. We have been taught to hate each other and to think the other side is nothing but bigoted one way or another on one thing or another. I don't believe that that is true.”

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."
