Someone at Allen West forum seemingly wanted to hate Glenn

Just spoke at a great forum with Allen West. College Scholars.

It was about who we are as Americans and the choice we all have to make.

Hostile question about Islam.

Seemingly from someone that wanted to hate me.

I explained the difference between Islamist and Muslim. One is no different than me and one is a killer. How do we know the difference between the two? I am not sure. Muslims need to point out the Islamist but they are currently feeling outnumbered.

I don't think she liked my answer.

When I was asked as my last question how do we solve our problems, I spoke directly to her.

We need to believe that the other person is not coming from a position of hate and bigotry. We need to listen with our heart open and with reason fixed firmly in her seat. We need to stop calling each other names and admit that evil does exist, that there are people that do want to kill us and that they usually tell you what they are going to do and then they keep their promise.

I said, "we need to begin to see each other... And it would begin by actually looking at each other... At least looking at me now..."

I waited she never looked at me.

It was a missed moment.

I later met with 90 of them from different universities and backgrounds from all over Texas. From global warming, inequality, Planned Parenthood, the border and capitalism. Spirited and respectful.

Don't know if any of us changed our minds but we at least heard one another.

Who knows if they learned anything from me, but, I know I learned that I need to make sure that I ALWAYS say there is a difference between Islamist and Muslim. People don't know that. I need to say it every time. Even if people don't want to understand it because they think all Muslims are bad, or that all Muslims are good.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
