'Tremendous respect': Capt. Dan Quinn tells Glenn about bold stand that got him kicked out of the military

Joining Glenn on the air Thursday morning was former Special Forces Captain Dan Quinn, who recently made headlines after being relieved of his command for refusing to ignore the sexual abuse of minors at the hands of an allied commander in Afghanistan.

At the end of the interview, Glenn said how much he admires Quinn what his brave actions at the risk of of his career.

"It will be an honor to shake your hand," Glenn said. "You will be blessed for taking a stand. You didn't kill this guy. I would have snapped the guy's neck, quite honestly. But you didn't kill him. You didn't get out of control. You did all the right things."

DAN: We got the report that you just went through before I came on saying that, you know, one of our commanders had kidnapped a 14-year-old boy, chained him to his bed, and raped him repeatedly for over the course of ten days to two weeks. And when this boy's mother came to get her son back, she was beaten as well. So the mother and her son came to our camp and just said, "Look, we know this is going to continue to happen. We've gone to the local government. They're indifferent. You and I both know they're not going to do anything to stop this. You're the only ones that can do something about it. So please help."

So at that point, I just felt compelled that both Charles Martland and myself felt compelled that there was -- that we had to take action and we couldn't just, you know, kind of blame our -- you know, the military rules and regulations and kind of pass the buck to the next guy in our chain of command and decided to -- and all we decided to do was -- we said, "Hey, we'll have this guy -- we'll invite this guy to our camp and make sure that this is true and explain the severity of his actions. And, you know, we'll go from there."

So we invited him to our camp. He came over. And we explained. We said, "Hey, these are the allegations against you." He agreed to them. And he said, "Yeah, that did happen." We explained the severity of the actions, and he just started laughing and saying it wasn't a big deal.

And all we were saying was, "Look, this may be acceptable in your culture." But it wasn't because, you know, the elders had complained about it to us. So like the whole, it's part of their culture, and you have to accept it. That's not necessarily true because the majority of the population does not support this type of behavior. And it's something that the elders had complained to us about as well.

GLENN: I don't care if they like it in that culture, it's evil. And if the culture embraces it, it's an evil culture and we shouldn't have anything to do with it.

DAN: I agree, Glenn.

PAT: So at that point, did you -- you or Martland hit him at that point? Right?

DAN: I did. I was first and Charles followed too.

GLENN: Hold on just a second. May a just say.

PAT: Yes.

(applauding)

GLENN: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

DAN: I appreciate it.

GLENN: Okay. So then what happened?

DAN: It didn't last long. We just made sure that we got our message across, which is if you go near that boy again or his father, there are going to be very serious consequences. And, you know, we sent him home. And that was it. Then at that point, he had told -- he had told a few of his friends who had told the other Americans in our area, the Americans that are about an hour away from us. They called me and asked me what happened. And I said, "Yeah, I absolutely did assault him. And here's why I did it. And if there's any repercussions, you know, that's fine. Send them my way." And the next day, we had a helicopter come, pick Charles and I up. We were relieved of our command immediately.

PAT: Wow.

DAN: And they went about an investigation and found that Charles and I were going to be both relieved of command, sent home from Afghanistan early. We were mission complete.

GLENN: Dan, let me tell you something. I have -- I know a lot of heroes that have done a lot of great things in our military. As you may know, I know a lot of you guys. And I have tremendous respect. But I have to tell you, it will be an honor to shake your hand. There is -- there is almost no one that I have heard their story that I have more respect for than you. And I have to tell you, the two of you, you will be blessed for taking a stand. You didn't kill this guy. I would have snapped the guy's neck, quite honestly. But you didn't kill him. You didn't get out of control. You did all the right things. You just did the right thing and said, "Hands off." And if we're over there trying to win the hearts and minds of people, how can we possibly win the hearts and minds of people when we're allowing people to be raped under our nose? It's disgusting.

PAT: It's unbelievable.

GLENN: But I just want to tell you, I admire you. I really admire you.

'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long': BlazeTV hosts react to historic Roe v. Wade decision

The Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe V. Wade, and the debate over abortion rights has been given back to the states. On this historic day, BlazeTV hosts celebrate the Supreme Court's incredible decision and take a look at some of the insane reactions as the left comes completely undone.

Jason Whitlock: Today will forever stand as a pivotal moment in our nation’s history

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. The decision and the reaction to it have already revealed a lot about our people and politics. Pro-life groups celebrate, pro-choice groups call for “a night of rage,” and Nancy Pelosi just seems completely confused by the United States Constitution.

Glenn Beck reacts LIVE to Roe v. Wade ruling: 'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long'

I never thought that in my lifetime, I would see Roe v. Wade be overturned. But today, that day has come. The Supreme Court has voted 6 to 3 to return decisions about abortion to the states. But this fight isn't over. We are about to see good versus evil side by side. Many states will stand with the unborn. But others will become abortion mills. It's your turn to choose now, America!

Allie Beth Stuckey: 'Praise God, Roe v. Wade is overturned!'

I don't know about you, but I just had the most euphoric feelings. It almost seems too good to be true. I didn't think there was any way that this would actually happen, especially with all the backlash, intimidation, and violence toward the Supreme Court justices. And yet, here we are. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This is an amazing day!

Dave Rubin: Big disagreement on what happens next now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

Dave Rubin, Libby Emmons, Jeffrey A. Tucker, and David Reaboi debate what will happen in the wake of the Supreme Court’s breaking decision on Roe v. Wade. Now that abortion rights have been pushed back to the states, will there be a summer of massive riots or not? Will the Roe v. Wade ruling make America’s political polarization significantly worse?

Stu Burguiere: Here are the reasons SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade

I never thought this would happen. I never thought I would see this day. I just never ever ever ever never ever believed that Roe v. Wade would actually be overturned. I really didn't. But let's take a look at the reasons this day has finally come ...

The Rick & Bubba Show: 'This is history! Unfortunately we're 60 million lives too late'

We were live on the air when news broke of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States overturned its controversial 1973 Roe v. Wadeopinion, concluding that there is no constitutional right to an abortion.

"The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives," the syllabus of the decision reads.

As expected, the leftist outrage erupted instantaneously, fueled largely by the misinformed idea that overturning Roe v. Wade means abortion will be banned nationwide. But, as stated in the above-mentioned Supreme Court syllabus, the authority has actually been returned to individual states and their duly elected lawmakers.

One such misinformed leftist, Parkland shooting survivor Cameron Kasky, was infuriated that those awful Supreme Court justices "just voted to kill women." So he took to Twitter to urge people to go to the homes of said Supreme Court justices to "let them know how you feel."

"Go to the home of every Supreme Court justice who just voted to kill women. Let them know how you feel," Kasky tweeted.

The backlash was immediate:

Kasky decided to delete his original tweet because he is apparently "sick of republicans talking to [him]." But, unfortunately for Kasky, the internet is indeed forever:

Speaking from the White House, President Joe Biden dutifully helped spread the misinformation about the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and took the opportunity to prompt voters to elect more Democrats in November so that Congress can write abortion protections into law. Did the president just let slip the real reason Congress hasn't made any effort to start writing such laws in the nearly two months since Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion was "leaked" in early May?

CNN reporter tries to 'ambush' GOP candidate Kari Lake, IMMEDIATELY regrets it

CNN senior national reporter Kyung Lah thought she'd caught Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake off guard when she asked for an impromptu interview outside an event, but ended up sorely regretting her decision.

Lake, a former Fox news anchor, shook hands with Lah as she approached and immediately pointed out that the CNN reporter wasn't wearing a mask any more, a barbed reference to a contentious interview in October 2021, in which Lah smeared the GOP candidate as a “rising star of the right-wing and proud spreader of lies." Lah asked if Lake had “a minute to chat.”

“I’ll do an interview," Lake answered, "as long as it airs on CNN+. Does that still exist? I didn’t think so, because the people don’t like what you guys are peddling, which is propaganda. Thank you.”

Lake then walked into the event, leaving Lah utterly speechless.

It looks like Lake gained quite a few fans on Twitter:

Kari Lake has been a longtime friend to "The Glenn Beck Program." She joined Glenn last August to tell Glenn why she left the corrupt world of media, what prompted her to enter "the even more corrupt world of politics," and how she plans to make a big difference in her battleground state of Arizona.

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."
