Billionaire investor Peter Thiel chased off by Berkeley protestors

Peter Thiel was giving a speech at UC-Berkley when he was chased off stage by a group of angry protestors. While the protestors claim they are standing up for the oppressed like Eric Garner and Michael Brown, they don't seem to realize how people like Peter are the ones who are truly trying to free mankind. Glenn reacted to the disturbing news on radio.

Glenn read from Business Insider:

But after about 20 minutes, protesters came banging on the doors, interrupting the speech multiple times. A sense of panic seemed to be overtaking the surprised audience, but Thiel went on and continued through the Q&A.

At about 7:30 p.m. PT, the sound of protests and door banging got louder. The entire crowd at Wheeler Hall turned eerily silent — until one male student suddenly rose up and yelled at Thiel.

"F--k you!" the guy shouted as he walked out of the hall.

After a few seconds of silence, Thiel, in his quiet, calm voice, said: "This is really a classic Berkeley event today — this is so cool!"

Although Thiel insisted on going on with the Q&A, the protests got too loud at that point. Moments later, the doors finally gave in and protesters took over the stage.

"All this is is Occupy Wall Street. They think they've found a way in. They don't even understand who their friends are. Peter Thiel and people like Peter Thiel will free more people than ever before. They -- people don't understand. If you fall into this communism crap right now, you're going to set us back 500 years. And you may -- you may usher in at least 100 years of tree profound global darkness," Glenn said.

"We are on the precipice of truly changing everything. Man's freedom has never been understood this way. Truly never been understood. What the founders said when all men are created equal. And let's get together and leave each other alone. You can pursue your own happiness. You still needed each other. You still really needed to have a store owner, or a print -- you could be a writer, but you needed a printing press to be able to print that. You don't need any of that anymore. You don't need any of it."

"You want to make a movie? Make a movie. You want to get it distributed? Put it online."

"The cream will rise to the top. For the first time, Americans and people all over the world truly have a voice."

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
