This Facebook troll probably didn't expect Glenn to respond to his post calling our audience "idiots"

Over his vacation, Glenn spent a lot of time keeping in touch with his audience over Facebook. In fact, he's even started to respond to a few of the commenters who reach out with questions, comments, or just a kind word. Unfortunately, Facebook is still the internet, which means there are going to be trolls trying to cause problems and stir up trouble. How did Glenn handle the hate when one person called his fans "idiots"?

Thomas Colwell wrote: "Do you idiots see what kind of lifestyle you are paying for Glenn to have? He preys on your fears and profits greatly from it."

Here's how Glenn responded:

Thomas, I respect your right to disagree. We all are very aware that I make money. My audience doesn't have a problem with meritocracy. Not everyone agrees with what I believe. I wouldn't expect them to. However, I expect my audience to do their own home work. Never take my word for anything. Check it out yourself. Listen to all sides and don't listen to those who shout you down. When ever someone says don't listen, read or explore any line of thought, they believe you to be an idiot.

You believe my audience is full of idiots. I do not.

I do not believe you are an idiot, nor the audience (whatever is left of it) at MSNBC. We just disagree. What we need to do is see where what we believe intersects and build from there.

Believe it or not Thomas, there are things we agree on. I would bet you didn't want a blank military check for George Bush. Neither did I. You didn't want him to just move alone without congress. Neither did I. You want these wars to end. So do I. You don't want people scooped up and held without a trial, so do I.

Why don't we start there. We don't have to agree on much more. Let's just be consistent.

I thought it was wrong when Bush was in office, and I said so openly and often. I called for Bush's impeachment, I will again if god forbid Jeb Bush or Romney get into office and abused the power and went it alone. I also think it is wrong now. Do you? Or is it okay for one man to hold all that power IF YOU AGREE WITH HIM?

Why make it about how much I make? I do not hide it, but you don't seem to care that I have also directly created over 300 jobs and God only knows how many indirect jobs we have "saved or created". You don't know or seem to care that I give my employees the best healthcare available and that I not only hire those that think differently, I encourage it. I have liberals, atheists, Jews, Christians, black, Hispanic and most of my leadership team is made up of women and they make the same as the men.

It doesn't sound like I am as much of a monster as those who are vying for power would like you to believe. You are smart enough. Do your own homework. Don't only ask the Dodge dealer about the Ford. If you want the truth, go ahead, ask the dodge dealer, but ask the Ford dealer as well.

I wish you my best for a blessed year and one that encourages you and all you know to explore, learn and think out of the box.

In the meantime, enjoy the caliphate that was crazy and stupid for me even to suggest three years ago. It is called ISIS. And it is only just beginning. Do you own homework on the next puzzle piece that I will be exploring next week: RUSSIA. Don't tell me it is stupid. I challenge you to watch all three episodes and then when you really understand what I am trying to warn about, then tell me where you believe I have it wrong. But let's try it without hatred and name calling.

Because, who knows, maybe you will be right and I will learn more from you than you will learn from me.

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

Top 5 economic milestones that show HOW BAD Bidenomics has made the economy

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
