Watch what happened when Cass Sunstein was asked if a fetus should have the same rights as a horse

President Obama’s former ‘regulatory czar’ and progressive icon Cass Sunstein has a new book out entitled Conspiracy Theories and Other Dangerous Ideas in which he ponders why topics like “perfectly rational people sometimes believe crazy conspiracy theories,” climate change, same-sex marriage, animal rights, and more. During a recent forum about the book at the National Constitution Center, an audience member posed a very strange question to Sunstein: “Should a fetus have the same rights as a horse?” His answer was even more bizarre.

“Cass Sunstein is really an amazing dude. I'm sure he appreciates that. He's a guy who wept, according to his wife, when he was offed the regulatory czar job… When you have a President that's like Woodrow Wilson, that's a dream come true, because you can change people – what they eat, what they watch, how they drive, how they vote, all through regulation… That was his job,” Glenn explained on radio this morning. “Now, he's a pretty spooky dude when you really know his real opinion… Listen to him try to answer a pretty serious question about the rights of a child. Does the fetus have the same right as a horse?”

Applicable video begins around the 1 hour 5 minute mark:

As Pat explained, Sunstein easily could have laughed off the ridiculousness of this question, but instead he stumbles through an awkward answer. Glenn, however, believes Sunstein didn’t ignore the question because he actually has an opinion on the subject matter – one that he may not have been fully upfront about in his response.

Glenn pointed to an eerie comment former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano made earlier this year in regards to her evolving opinion on gay marriage as evidence. Napolitano essentially admitted she did not publically support gay marriage because it was not popular opinion at the time she was trying to win her gubernatorial races in Arizona. But now that the “arc of history” has evolved, she is much more willing to have the opinion that is now more politically expedient.

“So [she] can't tell you what [she] really believe because you are not prepared to hear it,” Glenn explained. “It comes from the progressives: I'm smarter than you are. And I can't tell you [the truth now] because you will reject me, so I will just work behind the scenes to manipulate through regulation, through information until you get to the point to where you're ready to hear what I'm really saying to you.”

With that in mind, when it comes to Sunstein’s response to the horse and fetus question, his answer may not have actually been what it seemed.

“Cass Sunstein, if I'm not mistaken, has written about litigation for animals. And we already have monkeys on trial. We have monkeys taking people to court! So look at the arc of history,” Glenn explained. “You are not ready to say monkeys and dogs are people too. You are not ready to say babies and horses are the same, so what does he say… He's a long-robed professor who's making his way around and gaining accolades in the marketplace. Beware… He's waiting for the arc of history to catch up, so he can tell you what's really on his mind.”

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
