'American Sniper' crosses $200 million, haters get even worse

It’s hard to believe that anyone could watch American Sniper and come away disliking our military, but that appears to be what’s happening. In the wake of it’s success, scores of liberal blogs are popping up questioning the veracity of the film. The haters aren’t even trying to look like sane, rational human beings anymore.

"So Chris Kyle movie, "American Sniper", still number one at the box office. What has it made so far? $200 million," Glenn said on radio this morning.

"People love this movie. It's really resonating and it's driving the left out of their minds," Pat said.

"I think it's not the American soldier that's driving them nuts. It's the fact that Americans are now going to 'American Sniper' and they are seeing it and they are seeing the animals, and I use that word -- in full recognition of how much trouble that word will cause, but there's no other way to describe. There's full recognition now of the American people, if you go see that movie, of the animals and the degenerates that we were going in and fighting against. And by the way, if you see -- [Chris Kyle's] not going in there just to save American soldiers. He's going in there, he's trying to stop -- a good portion of this movie is all about him going to try to stop the butcher of Baghdad, a guy who was using a drill to the heads of [Iraqi] children," Glenn said.

Glenn said that the left is especially upset because the movie exposes their own hypocrisy. Every anti-war leftist has pushed the narrative that the War on Terror is a big misunderstanding, the people in the Middle East just have a different culture.

"This is why the left is so crazy about this movie, because it shows all of the nonsense that they have been saying," Glenn said.

When Bill Maher discussed the movie on his HBO show, several of his guests jumped on the anti-'American Sniper' bandwagon.

"There’s a lot of anger in this country, and the people who go see this movie are people who are very angry. This guy basically says, ‘I’m going to fight on your side.'" Howard Dean said. "I bet you if you looked at the cross-section of the tea party and people who see this movie there’s a lot of intersection."

"I want you to listen carefully to me, America. Listen carefully. Whose families are being decimated by this never-ending war? Is it the Harvard elites? Is it the media elites? Is it the politicians? Whose families are being decimated? Is the gang culture? Is it a culture of those in Hollywood? The families that are being ripped apart right now with this never-ending war are the Tea Party people. It is the middle of the country. It is the NRA member. It is the person that believes in generally common sense constitutional ideas," Glenn said.

"We're going to see this movie because we have a friends and loved ones that are in the military who have fought and are currently suffering."

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
