‘I think it’s refreshing’: Glenn reacts to comedian Adam Carolla’s candid comments about political correctness

Comedian Adam Carolla is known to stir the pot a bit with his non-politically correct speak, and his recent interview with the left-leaning Salon.com was no exception. Carolla spoke candidly about race and homosexuality as he questioned the legitimacy of discrimination claims and slammed the political correctness police. On radio this morning, Glenn commended Carolla’s candidness.

In the article entitled “Adam Carolla: The gay mafia is real,” Salon writer Daniel D’Addario asked Carolla is he feels “any obligation to help underrepresented comics climb the ladder?”

“You’re presuming I got lifted up the ladder. I don’t feel the need to lift anyone up. If they’re funny, I’ll give them a shot. If they’re not, I won’t. But I don’t have quotas to fill,” Carolla shot back. “I’m fine with the notion that there are genders and races that lean more to comedy — where are the Asian comedians? Maybe there just aren’t any! For that matter, where are all the Jewish roofers? What are female comedians doing about the lack of Jewish roofers? I demand answers!”

When it comes to the topic of racial “privilege” and “systemic disadvantages built into the system,” Carolla was even more decisive.

“How did Asians pass white people? They got lucky? Someone should look into that, perhaps,” he said. “I would go ahead and say: The Asians beat the rigged system and did better than white people. You don’t think that’d be something to look into? Do you think we decided to rig the system against certain ethnicities?”

“That’s the world, that’s how it’s always been. That’s why people try to get rich,” he continued. “As far as the left goes, for people that don’t seem to care much about money, that’s all they talk about — who has this and who doesn’t. It’s weird to say you don’t need it but also obsess about it. I try not to think about who I’m helping along or who I’m holding back. I just go to work with whoever I work with.”

Glenn widely agreed with Carolla’s sentiments – especially in regards to work ethic and race. More importantly, however, Glenn appreciated Carolla’s honesty.

“I just kind Adam Carolla really refreshing,” Glenn said. “You know why he has over a million downloads all the time on his podcast – because he doesn't care... He cares about what he does. He's a good businessman. He's wicked, wicked smart… But he also knows the only thing that is really truly unique in America is somebody who actually says what it is, doesn't care, is not afraid, and can state it as well as he can state it.”

Furthermore, as Pat and Stu explained, Carolla believes in America and the American people. At another time in history, Stu believes someone like Carolla would have been snuffed out, but with the outlets and resources technology provides, Carolla is able to reach a tremendous amount of people without much restriction.

“This goes to your optimism, which is hard to find sometimes on days like today… Adam Carolla would have a tough time existing at any other point in our history,” Stu said. “Here's a guy who wants to just say whatever the hell he wants and be successful. How would he do that in another time? In another time, he'd be shut down by political pressures. He'd be targeted by the government. And he's probably still will be targeted by the government… [But] He can do whatever the hell he wants and you can't stop him.”

“He's been successful because he's been able to build a structure using technology that it doesn't matter what you think about him,” Pat added.

Ultimately, it is that very ability to avoid the traditional gatekeepers and reach a large audience that Glenn is most optimistic about.

“This is why I'm saying: If you put correct principles together along with the latest technology, there's no stopping man's freedom. This is no longer about America. This is about the freedom of all mankind all around the world,” Glenn said. “Quite honestly, I'm not attached to America so much so. I do believe that we are unique. But we're unique because we've understood the principles of freedom and where real freedom comes from.”

“Why don't we talk about the principles – that's what [Carolla is] saying,” he concluded. “He's talking about the principles behind, you know, this nonsense of political correctness. I think it's refreshing, and I applaud him.”

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.
