Politifact fact-checked one our our Facebook posts, but missed the big picture

Once again the pointdexters at PolitiFact have protected our audience from our ignorance and misinformation. They’ve just fact checked one of Glenn’s late night Facebook posts, and decided to pick apart a few pieces and ignore the larger context and message of the post.

Here’s our response:

1) Yes, we meant Hezbollah not Hamas. We have corrected that on Facebook and the website.

2) We’re responding to this story from ‘The Times of Israel’ headlined “US intel report scrapped Iran from list of terror threats”. Summarizing that as “taking Iran off the terror list” on a Facebook post doesn’t seem criminal. In fact, Fox News, Townhall.com, and Allen West all discussed this story with similar summaries.

3) While there are some critical words about Iran, they are taken out of the list of terror threats as we stated, and Hezbollah is completely removed from the entire report.

Thankfully, they didn’t check for grammatical errors.

Politifact's point seems to be that if you incorrectly assume that Glenn was talking about a different terror list than the one he was talking about, then Glenn would have been wrong.  However ...he wasn't...so he wasn't.

Now, Politifact failed to deal with the larger point of Glenn’s Facebook post, which is that this administration has routinely betrayed our closest ally in the Middle East: Israel.

While Politifact focused on ‘The Times of Israel’ story, Glenn’s post was focused on this one from ForeignPolicy.com, ‘EXCLUSIVE: From Tel Aviv to Turtle Bay’, which outlines how the Obama administration had hope Netanyahu would lose his re-election and in light of his victory plans to use the United Nations to force a two-state solution.

“When it comes to Israel and the Jewish people, this administration does not speak for me! When it comes to a deal with the homicidal maniacs that oppress the Iranian people oppress women and stone homosexuals I want the world to know that as for me and my family - We reject those who say ‘peace, peace’- when there is no peace,” Glenn wrote on Facebook.

“My family and I stand with the Muslims that ISIS kill because they are not ‘Muslim enough’, we stand with the Jew, the Christian and the atheist who will not accept a second class citizenship in exchange for life,” he continued.

“All men are created equal and endowed by their creator with the right of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” Glenn wrote.

Yes, a mistake was made. Yes, we corrected it shortly after it was brought to our attention – and are doing so again now. But we will not ignore nor will we apologize for criticizing this administration’s neglect of our American values and principles in order to further their own political interests in the Middle East.

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
