Why does Glenn think Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' has "the answer"?

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes had a huge weekend at the box office – grossing over $73 million domestically. Unlike Noah (aka the “$100 million disaster”), Glenn had a chance to see the latest installment of the Planet of the Apes franchise and was quite impressed. On radio this morning, Glenn made some interesting connections between the film’s plot and today’s world.

“This is one of the best sci-fi [movies] I have ever seen. It is really good. Really good,” Glenn said. “I'm not a fan of CGI now because everything is CGI, but the CGI is so good. I don't know what's real and what's not. The apes look absolutely 100% real. You believe the apes are really apes the entire time… [And] the story is really good.”

While there is an underlying gun plot Glenn was less than thrilled about, he found the overall theme of the film to be surprisingly pertinent to what is going on in the world today. The apes and humans are initially at odds with one another, but, with time, they learn to coexist.

“[The apes] learn that not all the humans are bad. The same thing happens with the humans. The humans are realizing: Not all of us are good. There are those who want power on both sides. They just want killing. They want blood shed. They want revenge,” Glenn explained. “But not everybody does. In fact, most of them would just like to get along, just live side-by-side. It's just those who want power and control. And they are the ones poisoning the minds of everybody.”

This theme of those in power wanting to garner more and more control, while the majority of people are simply looking to co-exist struck a chord with Glenn.

“So when I saw that, I thought to myself: This is the answer… This was the answer in World War II, when people were dehumanizing the Jews. You have to get to know a Jewish person,” Glenn concluded. “In Planet of the Apes… some are bad. Some are good. The solution is getting to know each other, to talk to each other again. We are being taught not to talk to each other again. We are being taught to hate each other, to blame each other.”

On Friday, Mercury One hosted the 2022 ProFamily Legislators Conference at The American Journey Experience. Glenn Beck shared this wisdom with legislators from all across our nation. We must be on God’s side.

Winston Marshall assumed that he would be playing banjo with Mumford & Sons well into his 60s, but one tweet — simply recommending Andy Ngo's book — was all it took for the woke mob to attack. At first, Winston apologized, saying he "was certainly open to not understanding the full picture." But after doing some research, not to mention a whole lot of soul-searching, his conscience "really started to bother" him.

On the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Winston opened up about the entire scandal, what he discovered in the wake of his cancellation, and why he's decided to put truth over career.

"I looked deeper and deeper into the topic, and I realized I hadn't been wrong [when] I'd called the author brave," Winston said of Ngo. "Not only was he brave, he'd been attacked by Antifa mobs in Oregon, and he was then attacked again ... he's unquestionably brave. And so my conscience really started to bother me ... I felt like I was in some way excusing the behavior of Antifa by apologizing for criticizing it. Which then made me feel, well, then I'm as bad as the problem because I'm sort of agreeing that it doesn't exist," he added.

"Another point, by the way, that I found it very frustrating, was that that left-wing media in this country and in my country don't even talk about [Antifa]. We can all see this footage. We see it online," Winston continued. "But they don't talk about it, and that's part of my, I think, interest initially in tweeting about Andy's book. Because I think people need to see what's going on, and it's a blind spot there. ... CNN and MSNBC, they don't cover it. Biden in his presidential election said it was just 'an idea' that didn't exist. I mean, did he not see the courthouse in Oregon being burnt down?"
