'They edited the heart out of it': Glenn dismayed with how CNN handled his interview with Don Lemon

I am watching Don Lemon on CNN. They are talking to Republican talking heads.

If this is what they think Republican voters are I am so glad that I have NOTHING to do with the GOP.

Does the media even begin to understand that for most conservatives, Obama is yesterday's news? We got it! I believe we are MUCH more offended by Boehner and McConnell and the rest of the GOP establishment.

We expect to disagree with the progressive left. But we have been betrayed and lied to by "our own."

Over that, I, for one, am D O N E with all of them. We are never going to fix our nation by starting with D.C.

Maybe it is because I just spent the day in media and politician hell, but I really am so frustrated by everyone who just keeps bringing it back to what politician X or Y did.

I just saw my appearance on CNN. I recorded it earlier today. They edited the heart out of it. I wish they would have left the real conversation - the meaningful conversation Don and I had.

Nope. They left in the stupid Palin "dog" question and left out my reaching out and begging, pleading and making a real case that those questions and comments are a waste of our nation's time.

We need to stop empowering these political games. Who in the media will be brave enough to have an entirely new conversation?

I wish CNN would post online the unedited interview, because Don and I, who don't agree on very much politically, made real progress as people. Even if it was for just five minutes.

Why doesn't someone dial test something entirely new? Honesty. Truth. Decency. Compassion.

I have just wasted 40 minutes of my day watching the news.

People are dying, 8-year-old girls are being raped right now, homosexuals are being beaten and stoned to death and men and boys are being beheaded and their moms sold into slavery.

I am done with this. If I can't fix my own radio show and get my own show to begin to take action of healing, help and decency then I need to go away myself.

I don't know how much more I can do and fail.

This isn't about anyone else but me. Maybe I need to leave the media and public life and just walk the walk in my own neighborhood and life.

Each of us are going to be held responsible for our own actions and our friends, family and everything that is meaningful is on fire and we are engaging in a clown show or an angry venting.

Both are important, but I just can't do it anymore.

Ben Franklin said around 1773 that he could no longer be with friends anymore. Because most failed to understand the gravity of what was really happening in the world.

He felt almost dirty by talking about normal things. I feel the same way.

God is going to make me account for every moment of air-time, every word and every action I chose to put my effort behind.

I am not the man I need to be.

These times require a Lincoln, Gandhi, Mandela or King.

I don't know if they exist or if any of them would even be listened to today. We have sold our principles for power in our parties. We have lost the ability to reason and we certainly don't even begin to engage in a real and authentic conversation.

I am sorry to be a downer. But it is the truth of how I feel tonight.

Tomorrow, I am going to share the speech I didn't finish at the Capitol today - because we only can stand 10 minutes per speaker. I will ask if CNN will allow me to play the unedited interview (that makes Don Lemon real and really likable). But we couldn't play that because we only have 8 minutes and we have to talk about the latest stupid thing someone has said.

America can listen or not. But maybe sooner rather than later, you and I will just gather under some new "liberty tree" and have real conversations and take real and meaningful action.

No one will cover it... But the best part is:


From Orlando, where one man did change the world, but people are working harder than ever to tear him down 50 years after his death.

Good night America.

God lives and He will set things right with or without us.

PS: I am turning off my iPad without proof reading this. So sorry if it doesn't make complete sense, but you get the gist.

I am watching Don Lemon on CNN. They are talking to republican talking heads.If this is what they think republicans...

Watch a segment of the interview via CNN below.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.
