A fan didn’t like Buck’s take on Donald Trump, and he responded in the classiest way possible

A lot of pundits have been knocking Donald Trump's conservative credentials in recent days, yet his poll numbers keep climbing. Clearly, The Donald's tough talk has connected with people's frustrations. On his radio show, Buck Sexton joined many of the voices criticizing Trump's record. He got a lot of pushback from listeners, and decided to post a letter he wrote to one Team Buck member who took issue with his comments. It's not the sarcastic or frustrated argument you've probably been seeing from Trump critics, but a well-written and (seemingly) final word on the subject.

Got a lot of heat from some of you on my Trump commentary- including an email from a longtime listener and friend who was really fired up about how wrong I am on this--- so I decided to post my email response, which would also be my response to many of the comments I've seen here over the last 24 hours. Give it a read (please read all of it if you plan to scream at me in all caps)- and of course, share your thoughts:

----------------------------

Dear (TeamBuck member),

Always good to hear from you, even when you are writing in to express your vehement disagreement with me.

Before I address your criticisms: I think you would concur that I spend a vast majority of my radio time on things that matter to us all, and leave the petty intra-party GOP squabbles and poll-chasing to others to sort out.

However, I agree that, in this case, with the rise of Trump, I have deviated from that norm, and with that in mind, as you are a loyal and respected member of the TeamBuck radio tribe, Im writing to give you a full and considered response.

Before I go into my reasoning- let me say that I am already aware that some members of Teambuck (yourself included) strongly disagree with me on this Trump issue. And by no means am I going to needlessly antagonize some of my supporters and friends by continuing to harp on my opinion regarding one GOP candidate out of 15.

That said, it is because I believe so deeply in conservatism and Constitutionalism (as well my adamant refusal to pander, ever) that I felt compelled to speak out about the Trump candidacy. For me, it feels like watching a close friend walk up to the altar with someone you know has cheated on them time and again in the past. The choice is theirs to make, but I would feel it ignoble to stand by and say nothing.

I spoke out on Trump because I love my fellow conservatives and I love this country. Please keep that in mind as you read below:

Donald Trump, by his record, is not a conservative. I do not believe anyone really argues otherwise, as Trump has over the last ten years advocated for socialized medicine, a wealth tax, and amnesty for illegal aliens. He has very publicly praised Hillary Clinton (and given money to her campaign), expressed the deepest respect for Barack Obama's skills as President, and denigrated George W Bush while he was still in office.

Now, I understand that the argument is made that Trump is saying the right things today, that he is saying what needs to be heard today, and that he is giving voice to people who want to be heard- today. I know- in fact I share- deep unease with the current state of politics in this country. And Trump is articulating those frustrations.

But Trump has a long history of saying whatever will garner the most press at any given time, and so my concern is for what he will say (and do) tomorrow.

Character is destiny... and Trump is a character above all else.

I also do not understand why so many who wish for liberty and Constitutional governance are quick to forget about Ted Cruz, who I do not believe has to prove his conservative credentials to anyone, or Scott Walker, who while imperfect on the issues has fought- and won- against the progressive union machine in a Democrat stronghold. To ignore these- and even some other GOP candidates- I believe is a mistake.

With all of that said- and with full knowledge that I have almost certainly not in any way changed your position about Trump as a candidate- let me say that I understand the difference between sharing an opinion among like-minded friends and patriots- and lecturing them. I think my thoughts on Trump are well-known to TeamBuck at this point- and I do not intend to turn this presidential campaign season into one long anti-Trump harangue.

I have told my TeamBuck family how I feel about this possible future spouse of theirs, so to speak...if any one of them wants to sign on the dotted line and say "I do," it is up to them.

We have a busy summer ahead in the Freedom hut: illegal immigration, ISIS, Obamacare, gun control schemes, Russian expansionism- and of course the unknown unknowns of the news cycle. I hope that you will accept my respectful disagreement on the issue of a Trump primary win (I would vote for Trump over Hillary, of course) and join me again, with the rest of TeamBuck, as we continue our mission to grow together in wisdom, knowledge, and friendship.

Shields High,

Buck

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.

The Federal Reserve is now doing two things it has promised never to do: purchasing our national debt, which has never been higher, and printing money, which leads to deflation. As a result, your money in the bank has already lost 10 percent of its value in recent weeks.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck explained how, thanks to the fed's poor decision making, our deficits have another dangerous effect: The United States' credit score has been downgraded, putting our country at risk of becoming an untrustworthy borrower. He also advises Americans to have at least a week's worth of cash at home, because a banking crisis could happen soon.

Black Lives Matter protesters sent a shocking, threatening letter to businesses and non-profits in Louisville, Kentucky. The letter made a series of demands related to racial reparations, and threatened consequences if the demands weren't met, the Daily Wire reported.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck detailed the letter's list of demands and threats, and pointed out that these tactics are strikingly similar to those we've seen during some of history's darkest chapters.

The letter, which was sent to businesses in the East Market District in downtown Louisville, listed demands such as ensuring that at least 23% of staff are black, providing race and inclusion training for all employees, displaying a written statement professing support for the BLM movement, buying at least 23% of inventory from black retailers, and submitting to external audit.

"Repercussions for non-compliance" to these demands will result in sit-ins and protests being staged outside the business, social media smear campaigns, boycotts, negative media attention, and "invasive reclamation," the letter threatened.

"So, I'm making quite a charge here, but I think it absolutely fits," Glenn said on the show. "Carl Kaufman, the representation that was used by Hitler and his machine, he convinced the youth that they were the answer, they would finally take control, and they would bring equality. [Kaufman said] the Jews controlled everything, and because of the Jews, the Germans really didn't have any freedom. Because of the Jews, they couldn't do anything. They were held down by the Jews. He said, 'We're going to have to boycott those stores. And if those stores don't comply, we will keep our storm troopers outside of the doors.' And they did. They intimidated anyone who walked into those stores. They berated anyone who walked into those stores. They beat anyone who walked into those stores."

"I told you once, that if America goes dark, we'll become the darkest nation ever in the history of the world," Glenn continued. "Guys, we're allowing our nation to go dark. And we're doing it because of fear. Everybody knows this is wrong, but who is going to stand up against it?"
