Do Glenn Beck and Van Jones actually agree on something?

The morning after the Charleston church shooting, Glenn went on air and said that he believed that something good would come out of the horrific tragedy. Many in the media have focused on racism and gun control in the wake of the shooting to advance a progressive agenda, but there’s been another voice echoing Glenn’s positive sentiment: Van Jones. Could this end up being the strangest of strange bedfellows, or does Van have a hidden agenda?

GLENN: So VGLENN: So Van Jones, who I'm definitely not a fan of, has said something quite interesting about Charleston. Listen to this.

VAN: Something is happening here in Charleston. I'm proud that we're showing it. I'm also proud of you for calling it what it is when you say that it's racist terrorism. We can't defeat demons that we can't face.

You know, James Baldwin said, not everything that can be faced can be overcome, but nothing can be overcome until it is at least faced.

Here they're facing the demons, and they're coming together because they're facing the demons. I think there's a balm in Charleston for America, and I don't have words for it. I'm not usually at a loss for words. I do not have words for what I say.

PAT: That's pretty interesting that because -- you've been saying that from the very beginning. From day one, which was, you know, Thursday. Thursday morning you said something was happening and something could would come out of this really awful tragedy. Right?

GLENN: Yeah. While everyone was still reeling from it, I had the feeling that you were going to see an Amish moment coming from this community.

PAT: And we have.

GLENN: Something great -- and we have. Last night, yesterday, on the bridge was absolutely amazing.

PAT: Yeah, 15,000 people.

GLENN: Show up. And it's a unity line across the bridge, led by the victims' families. I mean, there is something special about this church. There is something special about this community.

PAT: But this is a revolutionary communist who is saying this at an interesting time. MSNBC is trying to stoke the flames of racial division. Then you have Van Jones saying exactly what you said.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Which is exactly what you said would happen when Van Jones was doing his revolutionary -- communist revolutionary propaganda before he said, drop the radical pose.

GLENN: I said about Van Jones. This was years ago. I said about Van Jones. Be careful. This guy is extraordinarily dangerous and he is smart.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And he is going to -- he is going to go all lovey-dovey on you. And he is going to image himself as a Martin Luther King or whatever.

PAT: Right. Right. He has a hard time sticking to it, though. Because he was doing the lovey-dovey stuff for you for a while, remember, calling you his brother, saying he loved you, all that kind of stuff. Then he kind of drifted back to his radical nonsense and rhetoric. And now he seems to be once again parodying what you've been saying about the Charleston situation.

GLENN: He's a dangerous guy. Very, very dangerous guy.

PAT: But like you said, smart. He's really smart.

GLENN: No, no. He took the summer after he left the White House, and he spent three months studying old tapes of Ronald Reagan, trying to learn how to speak like Ronald Reagan. Trying to learn the ins and outs of Ronald Reagan. Trying to be able to parrot. The guy is an actor. He can parrot just about anybody. So he's just a really dangerous guy.

Now, I hope that maybe he's dropped the --

PAT: Maybe.

GLENN: -- maybe he's dropped the radical ends as well as the radical means. I don't know. I don't know Van Jones. I don't want to know Van Jones. I don't trust him. Van Jones, who I'm definitely not a fan of, has said something quite interesting about Charleston. Listen to this.

VAN: Something is happening here in Charleston. I'm proud that we're showing it. I'm also proud of you for calling it what it is when you say that it's racist terrorism. We can't defeat demons that we can't face.

Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss the Left's current efforts to rid the U.S. military of "extremism," Democrats' push to separate President Joe Biden from the nuclear codes, and how conservatives can use government to battle the far-left, their policies, and their efforts to control Americans.

Crenshaw called the military's efforts to rid their ranks of extremism, "so obviously and clearly politically motivated," as the entire premise is based on reports that some active service members and veterans participated in the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol.

"Mathematically, that's not a good indication of where active duty military stand or where veterans stand more broadly," Crenshaw said of the generalization that military personnel are extremists. "And I thought we were against that kind of profiling. Right? I thought that was against the liberal values that supposedly the Left stands for."

"But, Glenn, you know very well the Left is not liberal," he added. "The Left is very anti-liberal. And I think as conservatives, we have to say that more often. They have become genuinely authoritarian. Progressivism is not in sync with liberalism. All right? There's a big difference between an Alan Dershowitz liberal and a Democrat Party progressive. They're totally different."

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
