WATCH: Students shocked to hear what Hillary Clinton said about gay marriage

Earlier this week, Glenn spoke about the trend among progressive politicians (i.e. Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Janet Napolitano, etc.) to refer to their politically expedient flip-flops on issues as an ‘evolution.’ When former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano attempted to explain her newfound support of gay marriage, she essentially admitted she had previously not supported gay marriage because it was not popular opinion at the time. But now that the “arc of history” has evolved, she is much more willing to have the opinion that is now more mainstream.

On radio this morning, Glenn played a brilliant video from MRCTV's Dan Joseph that offers a candid look at how the American people – specifically, students at George Mason University – feel about Hillary Clinton’s personal transformation as it relates to gay marriage.

“So up on TheBlaze, there is something great from Dan Joseph. He's from MRC… This one is about Hillary Clinton and her stance on gay marriage,” Glenn said. “And it is amazing that he did this week because this is exactly the point I made – what, three days ago – that she’ll do anything to get elected.”

Joseph reads students a quote from Clinton dating back to 2000 in which she said, ”Marriage has historic, religious and moral content that goes back to the beginning of time, and I think a marriage is as a marriage has always been, between a man and a woman,” and asks them to identify who said it. Needless to say, the majority of respondents believe it to be a conservative or Republican. When they find out the quote is attributed to Clinton, their reactions are pretty surprising.

Watch the MRCTV video below:

Clinton’s evolution is particularly interesting when you consider the recent resignation of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich over a contribution he made eight years ago in support of Proposition 8. Eich was not afforded that same benefit of the doubt Clinton, our current President, and others often enjoy.

“Hillary Clinton can evolve since 10 years ago. [But] a guy who is a CEO of a company, he can't evolve. No, no,” Glenn said. “He had a view eight years ago. But we got to stop him from being, you know, a CEO of a company that… doesn’t work on policy. We have to stop him for a political donation he made… eight years ago. But what Hillary Clinton believed 10 years ago – she can evolve.”

As Stu explained, history shows President Obama’s ‘evolution’ is even more egregious, for he has flip-flopped multiple times on the issues.

“MRC went back to Hillary Clinton's 2000 quote,” Stu said. “But much more recent, I mean, Obama in 2008 when he ran for president was saying the exact opposite of this.”

While running for Illonois state Senate in 1996, President Obama had this to say about gay marriage: "I favor legalizing same-sex marriages, and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages."

According to PoltiFact, the President had changed his tune just two years later, saying he is “undecided” on the issue.

In 2004, he further clarified his gay marriage stance: "I am a fierce supporter of domestic-partnership and civil-union laws. I am not a supporter of gay marriage as it has been thrown about, primarily just as a strategic issue. I think that marriage, in the minds of a lot of voters, has a religious connotation.”

“This one is amazing because I don't think I've ever heard it. It's as bad as Janet Napolitano's quote that we've talked about,” Stu said. “Do you ever remember hearing that quote? That's an amazing quote.”

While running for president in 2008, President Obama said: “I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage.”

Finally, in 2012 President Obama told ABC’s Robin Roberts he has been going through an evolution on this issue” and now supports gay marriage.

“He becomes pro-traditional marriage as he gets closer and closer to running for president. In 2008, he fully supports traditional marriage,” Stu said. “Then in 2012, he flip-flops completely almost exactly at the exact time that it is crossing the 50% support barrier. You want to talk about real leader: There you go.”

“How is it possible these guys aren't held accountable for this,” Pat asked exasperatedly. “This is clearly a political position for you. You've got no belief structure whatsoever on this point.”

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
