Try holding Donald Trump up to this litmus test for leadership - then try Ben Carson

On radio Monday, Glenn shared a passage of scripture - familiar to many for it's frequent use at weddings. "Love is patient. Love is kind. Love does not boast."

Glenn invited listeners to think of those verses in a different way.

"May I give this to you as a litmus test?" he said.

He then proceeded to profile himself against the test, followed by Donald Trump and then Ben Carson. The results were pretty mind opening.

Watch.

GLENN: I'm going to -- let me share something with you. We all know this because it's -- it's read at so many weddings. Love is patient. Love is kind. Love does not boast. It's not arrogant. It's not rude. It doesn't insist on its own way. It's not resentful or irritably. It doesn't rejoice in wrongdoing, but it rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes in all things, hopes in all things, endures in all things. You may kiss the bride.

(laughter)

That's how we hear this all the time, right? We hear that over and over and over again. And then we have it, and we're like, "Ah, it's my favorite scripture because it's the only one I really know. I heard it at somebody's wedding. And whatever that one is, I want that read at my wedding because it will put my wife or husband in place and make sure they understand, you're going to be patient and kind and you're not going to be arrogant and you're not going to insist on your own way!"

May I -- may I give this to you as a litmus test. Let me give this to you as something I did last night as I was laying in bed and reading this.

I took out love. Now, in some scriptures it's charity. In some scriptures it's love. It's actually neither. The Greek word is agape, which is the pure love of Christ. It is the self-sacrificing love of God. It is what we have for our children. The minute they're born, something goes wrong with your children, you're immediately like, "I'll take it. Give it to me. Give it to me. Give it to me." That's agape. Where you are willing to do whatever it takes to your own demise because it's the right thing.

Now, let's talk out agape, charity, love, whatever. Insert your name here. Glenn is patient. No, uh-uh. Glenn is kind. Try to be. Glenn does not boast.

(laughter)

Glenn is not arrogant. Uh-uh. Glenn's not rude. Not a chance. Glenn doesn't insist on his way. Glenn's not resentful or irritable. Glenn doesn't rejoice in wrongdoing. That's the only one that I could say I was pretty good on. I was like, "I got that one." Well, not so -- sometimes when somebody gets it, I'm like, "Yes!" But he rejoices with the truth. That one I got.

No matter what the truth is, I do rejoice in the truth. Bears all things. Not so much. Believes in all things. Uh-uh. Hopes in all things. Eh, if you believe hope is a step away from despair, I got it. And endures all things. Not with grace. I suck on that list.

Now, may I ask if your daughter or your son says, "I'm dating somebody great." Really, what's her name? "Harry." Really. Is Harry patient? Is Harry kind? Does Harry not boast? Is he arrogant? Is he rude?

This is a way for you to judge not only yourself, but also anybody who comes around you, anybody who wants to date your children, anybody you're supposed to go work for, anybody you're trying to hire.

How about this one? You think I flunked? Donald Trump is patient. Donald Trump is kind. Donald Trump does not boast. Donald Trump is not arrogant. Donald Trump is not rude. Donald Trump does not insist on his own way. Donald Trump is not resentful. Donald Trump is not irritable. Donald Trump does not rejoice in wrongdoing. Donald Trump rejoices with the truth. Donald Trump bears all things, believes in all things, hopes in all things, endures all things.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Now, the reason why I'm bringing this up into politics is because I want you to know -- let me give you another one.

Ben Carson is patient. Uh-huh. Ben Carson is kind. Yeah. Ben Carson does not boast, is not arrogant, is not rude. He doesn't insist on his own way. He's not resentful or irritable. He doesn't rejoice in wrongdoing. He rejoices with the truth. He bears all things, believes in all things, hopes in all things, endures all things. I think he's pretty good at that.

Now, here's the secret, this is the first step. It says in the -- in the verses right before. You could give away all your stuff. You could sell all your stuff and give it to charity. You can be at nursing homes every day. I mean, it doesn't say nursing homes. This is the gospel according to Glenn. You can do all of these things. But unless you have this, unless you have charity, unless you have love, unless you have agape, everything you do is worthless. Everything you do is worthless. It won't work. None of it will work.

So we have to start looking for this in ourselves, looking for this in our leaders, and knowing that's not all that is required. That's just the basic fundamental.

The far Left has intensified its push toward Marxism for months now, but it's more than clever catchphrases or slogans. Their radical rhetoric and policies have violent consequences.

Calls to defund the police have led to officers being ambushed and killed. Crime is spiking in record amounts all over the country. Critical race theory has the government, corporations, and now schools brainwashing Americans to believe the entire system is systemically racist. And it's paved the way for actual violence in the streets from groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa.

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck exposes their endgame: tearing the entire system down. Marxists did this in the Soviet Union and China, among other places. Millions died, and the first to feel the brunt were always the landowners and farmers. The most recent example of this is happening in South Africa, where Glenn reveals terrifying on-the-ground interviews.

As American farmers now also face unprecedented racial discrimination by our federal government, award-winning South African journalist Lara Logan warns of what could happen if the seeds of Marxism aren't uprooted now.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."
