Chris Kyle's killer found guilt - here's how Glenn reacted to the verdict

Eddie Ray Routh was found guilty Tuesday night of capital murder last night in the killing of 'American Sniper' Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield. He will spend the rest of his life in prison. After reading the news, Glenn wondered if the sentence truly fit the crime.

Last night, as I was going to bed, my wife said to me, there's a verdict in the "American Sniper" trial. I held my breath for a second, waiting to hear what that might be, no longer really believing that justice in America exists. Guilty. Guilty. However, life in prison without parole may not be enough for Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield's killer, but at least it's not the tragedy of justice we saw go to the Kyle family in the Jesse Ventura case. Last night I wrote on Facebook that I was a little tired and a little grumpy and maybe I shouldn't be thinking out loud, but I want to know what the real motive of the killing really was. If he's insane, he should be hospitalized, not imprisoned, but I don't believe he suffered any kind of PTSD. He didn't see any action at all, and in fact, if he has PTSD, I have watched two seasons of the "Walking Dead". I might have it too. So why is it that he killed these guys?

The president could come out and say maybe it was workplace violence. I would just like the news occasionally to make sense and to tell us really what is happening in the world. I know that Hillary Clinton could come out and say what difference does it make. We've got two people dead now. What difference does it make if he was suffering from PTSD or maybe he was just a guy walking down the street that just decided to go kill some Americans. What difference does it make?

Maybe the president could come out and explain that Chris and Chad were just some random folks that were killed. I don't know what the jury knows. I accept their verdict. I have a feeling he's not going to do well in prison. I just wish somebody cared enough about our soldiers and their families and the truth to see that justice is really served and answers are finally had. Truth and justice used to be the American way. I'm not holding my breath. I know the president just hates to comment on local stories. I know he hates to comment on local shootings, you know, before a verdict comes out, but now that it's out, maybe, just maybe, the president could call the wife of one of America's greatest warriors and offer some sort of heartfelt thanks on behalf of a grateful nation. Maybe he could do that.

My guess is he's too busy today apologizing for something Americans have done, apologizing to the Muslim world, maybe he's going took busy today condemning Christians. I know he's got a full schedule of betraying Israel. He also has to take over the Internet sometime today, but maybe on the back nine at some point, he could pop a text message her way. After all, he did insist that he had his own private BlackBerry that we all spent a fortune securing, so he could do things like that.

One other note on this: Nobody has talked about the family of the killer either, and if we do admire the Amish and the way they handled things, we should also be praying for the family of the killer and thinking about them today, for the hell that they have gone through and pray for their healing as well. No one is left untouched by this awful thing called war that I don't even know what it's about anymore.

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.
