How Do We Unite Again?

The song you hear every morning that kicks off The Glenn Beck Program was written by David Osmond, a friend of Glenn's. But not everyone associated with the project is a friend --- or even a fan of Glenn's.

"The people that are singing in this song, some of them absolutely hate my guts," Glenn said Wednesday on The Glenn Beck Program.

So what made them change their minds and agree to sing Glenn's new theme song? The lyrics and meaning:

I know we don't see everything in the same way

But I know we won't be really free if we don't stay united

'Cause divided we will fall for anything, it's true

So I have decided I'll stand for you

And I will . . .

I will make a stand

I will raise my voice

I will hold your hand

'Cause we are one.

I will beat my drum.

I have made my choice

We will overcome

'Cause we are one

"When they read the words of the song and said, 'This is what Glenn Beck is going to be talking about?' They said 'yes.' They all signed on. Because I think this is what people are really hungry for," Glenn said.

The song is about principles, and people coming together and lifting each other up despite their differences.

The version you hear at the beginning of the radio program is the original, featuring Jenn Blosil who made the Top 24 of this year's American Idol. But there's another version --- with children's voices --- that Glenn played last night on TV, following the events in Brussels.

How can we come back to a place to where we can be one? There used to be a time when our political differences did not define us. What's the secret to getting back there?

"There seems to be . . . no place we can go anymore. There's no place where you can actually have your opinion," Glenn said. "Have you been to Facebook? There's no place that you can go without being shouted down, without being threatened."

How do we possibly get back to a place where we can unite? By returning to principles and placing them above politics, parties and personalities.

"But that can't happen --- I can't beat my drum for you, I can't say we'll overcome, I can't join you --- if we don't have principles involved," Glenn said. "Otherwise, I'd be marching with Bill Ayers who is also not for Trump. I will not march with Bill Ayers. Why? I'm not one with him. Because I don't have the same principles.

So let's unite behind principles. If we don't find our shared principles then we will fall for anything --- and tear each other apart in the process.

On Friday, Mercury One hosted the 2022 ProFamily Legislators Conference at The American Journey Experience. Glenn Beck shared this wisdom with legislators from all across our nation. We must be on God’s side.

Winston Marshall assumed that he would be playing banjo with Mumford & Sons well into his 60s, but one tweet — simply recommending Andy Ngo's book — was all it took for the woke mob to attack. At first, Winston apologized, saying he "was certainly open to not understanding the full picture." But after doing some research, not to mention a whole lot of soul-searching, his conscience "really started to bother" him.

On the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Winston opened up about the entire scandal, what he discovered in the wake of his cancellation, and why he's decided to put truth over career.

"I looked deeper and deeper into the topic, and I realized I hadn't been wrong [when] I'd called the author brave," Winston said of Ngo. "Not only was he brave, he'd been attacked by Antifa mobs in Oregon, and he was then attacked again ... he's unquestionably brave. And so my conscience really started to bother me ... I felt like I was in some way excusing the behavior of Antifa by apologizing for criticizing it. Which then made me feel, well, then I'm as bad as the problem because I'm sort of agreeing that it doesn't exist," he added.

"Another point, by the way, that I found it very frustrating, was that that left-wing media in this country and in my country don't even talk about [Antifa]. We can all see this footage. We see it online," Winston continued. "But they don't talk about it, and that's part of my, I think, interest initially in tweeting about Andy's book. Because I think people need to see what's going on, and it's a blind spot there. ... CNN and MSNBC, they don't cover it. Biden in his presidential election said it was just 'an idea' that didn't exist. I mean, did he not see the courthouse in Oregon being burnt down?"
