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:

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:


Glenn and Justin’s new book, ‘The Great Reset: Joe Biden And The Rise Of 21st Century Fascism’ is available to order now.
