Who will stand with those who lose their jobs because of what they believe?

Who will stand with those who lose their jobs because of what they believe? On Monday's episode of The Glenn Beck Program, Glenn said that he would stand, as would TheBlaze, for anyone being  bullied because they speak up about their religious beliefs or have a point of view that isn't popular with outraged liberals. To illustrate his point, he welcomed the Benham brothers, who had been fired for anti-gay comments from HGTV, onto the show.

Below is a transcript of Glenn's opening monologue:

Hello, America, and welcome to TheBlaze.  This is the network that you are building, and this is The Glenn Beck Program.  Last week, I was reminded about how deceptive the media can be.  I read a story about two brothers who were taping a new show on HGTV, they were canned before it even aired because of alleged anti-gay and anti-Muslim comments that were uncovered.

And the quotes that the media used sounded really offensive.  I mean, I read them, and I thought, and I think I said on the radio if these are true, I mean, they might as well be members of the Westboro Baptist Church.  They weren’t true.  In fact, it didn’t take much investigation to find out that the quotes were either completely wrong or taken wildly out of context.

We invited the two brothers on the radio show on Friday.  I didn’t know what to expect.  Turns out lo and behold they’re good, decent people.  They’re incredibly gracious.  They won’t even lash out at HGTV.  I mean, I don’t know if I would be that kind.  We looked into their story, and before HGTV even green lit this show, they knew what their background was.  HGTV decided to go ahead anyway with the show.

But then the bullies showed up with the pitchforks and the torches, and then HGTV caved.  And the bullies caused everyone around who didn’t have a spine to just stop and go away and abandon freedom of speech, freedom of thought.

They don’t deserve to be treated like this.  Nobody does.  They’re not hateful people, and they’re being marked now as haters.  They, yes, are pro-life.  They believe babies have the right to be born.  They believe in traditional marriage, but those aren’t controversial or even new ideas anymore.  Or are they?  I guess you’re not allowed to say those things.

This is flat-out bullying, which I thought we were supposed to be against, not supposed to tolerate bullying.  We at this network stand with anyone who is being bullied, anybody who is being bullied for their views, whether they are atheist, gay, Muslim, liberal, Christian, doesn’t matter.  I may not agree with their worldview.  You may not.  We can disagree, but we have the civil right to be who we are and to believe what we believe and not be persecuted for it, period.

Yes, and I did say civil rights.  This may sound a little crazy, but the civil rights movement did not begin, nor did it end in the 1960s.  Any attack on freedom anywhere, anytime is a civil rights issue.  Martin Luther King said injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.  So as Christians now continue to be targeted for their views, as parents are intimidated and arrested for opposing Common Core, as farmers are harassed and punished by the EPA, as conservatives are being audited by the IRS, as reporters are being threatened by the White House and the DOJ, in a sea of self-serving and self-preserving cowards hoping against hope that time itself will cure all injustice, who will stand?

Who will stand with the terrified 14-year-old girl confronting a school board that just arrested her dad?  Who will stand with those who lose their jobs because of what they believe?  Who will stand when it is uncomfortable to do so or unpopular?  I will stand.  This network will stand.  I believe you will stand.

Whether we like it or not, we are the new civil rights leaders, mostly because no one else appears willing to shake loose from the chains of conformity and fight injustice with peaceful resistance.  That’s what happened to my two guests. Tonight, you will see a matter of injustice.  Just for sharing their own personal beliefs, they have been smeared and run out of business.

Watch the interview with the Benham brothers below:

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
