'It's laughable': Washington Post's hit piece debunked by Glenn Beck fan who called into radio show

In a move that will surprise absolutely no one, several mainstream media outlets published stories on Glenn's 'We Will Not Conform' event that didn't exactly represent the event in the best light. But perhaps the absolute worst offender was Lyndsey Layton at The Washington Post, who managed to insult not just Glenn but the people in the audience in her report. Thankfully, one of the people quoted in the article called into the radio show to make some corrections and give the other side of Layton's story, including the clear agenda the reporter had going into the show.

Here's a portion of Layton's story:

“This one is being won,” Beck said from a soundstage in Texas, his image broadcast to audience members who paid $20 a ticket. “It’s being won and these are your allies in the fight.You’ve felt alone, but we have lots of allies.”

The 17 people gathered at the Regal 13 Cinema in Rockville, Md., might be forgiven for feeling alone. The audience was sprinkled throughout the rows of the darkened theater, and when Beck implored his viewers to turn to their neighbors and introduce themselves, most people faced empty seats.

Ryan Miner, 28, traveled to Rockville from Hagerstown and sat in the middle of the theater with his girlfriend, Kim Euler, who was eating popcorn.

Miner is running for the board of education in Washington County, Md., on an anti-Common Core platform. “I wanted to be able to talk more intelligently about it,” he said, explaining why he came.

"They're so predictable," Glenn said. "It's hysterical."

"I said, because I knew the press particularly and the Post, they would not travel anywhere except in their own little elite circles. So they would only go to someplace in New York and someplace in the Beltway," he continued."And I said if you happen to be someplace in suburban Beltway around the capital you're probably there by yourself, but don't worry you're not alone the NSA is watching you. I should have said The Washington Post was watching you."

Glenn took particular issue with lines like "Kim Euler, who was eating popcorn" and "his image broadcast to audience members who paid $20 a ticket", which were clearly intended to paint the audience as "fatties" and "dopes" and Glenn as an egomaniac only out for money.

Does that narrative sound familiar?

Thankfully, Ryan Miner, mentioned in Layton's story, called in to share the details on what really happened.

According to Miner, who Layton dedicated one line to, talked to the reporter long enough for her to take several pages of notes. But the one line she used  from the conversation made it sound like he didn't know what he was talking about when it came to Common Core, when in reality they spoke about their concerns at length.

Miner explained, "The reporter thought I had absolutely no comprehension of Common Core before I came in there. That was one of my quotes that I offered in a copious probably six to seven page spread of notes that she took. And she extrapolated one quote and made this to make me sound like I was a doofus and that I've come here from the far right wing because, you know, I'm running for the board of education."

Miner said it was clear from the start that she had an agenda to discredit Glenn and the event, and she used the people in that theater as pawns to fit that story.

"We were really, really furious when this article came out yesterday," he said. "It was an exploitation. She had a defined narrative going into this. We were pawns that fit into that narrative."

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.
