Glenn Finds Common Ground With Young Liberals in L.A.

Still on the road in sunny California, Glenn had the opportunity yesterday afternoon to speak with a few hundred young liberals. While most would not have normally crossed the street to meet him, they were very attentive, civil --- and there may have been a breakthrough.

"We're in this unbelievable screening room. It looked like one of the nicest theaters I've ever been in, but it was a screening room, and I walk in the back door onto the little stage area, looking at this. I'm, like, wow are you guys living in a bubble? This is sweet. And I sit down, and they start asking questions," Glenn said.

One line of questioning was very telling.

"There is disenfranchisement on both sides. And it was really interesting because several of the questions revolved around this. One of them clearly stated this, and the other ones were kind of hinting around this: What happens if I can't pull the lever for Hillary Clinton? Does that mean I'm responsible for electing Donald Trump?

The irony wasn't lost on Glenn.

"I just, I mean, I wanted to laugh. I'm, like, boy, I've heard this conversation before, except it's on the other side," Glenn said.

One thing struck Glenn during his time with the group: There is a unique opportunity to have a real, issues-based conversation.

"We talked about gun control, we talked about abortion, we talked about everything, and we did it peacefully, respectfully, quietly. It was a fascinating," Glenn said. "They were all sitting on the edge of their seats, and they were really, truly trying to listen and understand."

Glenn's common sense perspective seemed to resonate and, perhaps, break down some barriers --- or at the very least, allow people to consider things from a different angle.

On the issue of gun control, Glenn explained why the only way to change the stance on guns is through a constitutional amendment. When one audience member suggested laws to curtail and control gun usage, Glenn detailed why that would never sit well with conservatives or solve what's perceived to be the problem.

"You have to have a constitutional amendment. If you can get a constitutional amendment fairly, squarely, then maybe you would have a chance of solving it. But you have to do it the right way because it's in [the Constitution]. I warn you, like prohibition, you might be able to get it through, but it will reverse itself quickly," Glenn said.

On the issue of abortion, Glenn explained why those on the side of life cannot compromise, comparing a life in the womb to a life in a Jewish concentration camp.

"We can't compromise because those of us who believe in life believe that it is a human life. So it's the weakest among us, and we have to stand," Glenn said.

While we may disagree on specific issues, if we stop trying to control each others' lives, those issues, for the most part, become irrelevant.

"When it comes to bathrooms and gay marriage, we can argue back and forth, but the argument means nothing if you having gay marriage doesn't affect in any way my marriage or my faith or my church," Glenn said. "If I don't have to perform gay marriage, if I don't have to bake a wedding cake, if my faith says you can't get involved in that, you can't force me. Just like I can't force you not to get into marriage."

Glenn explained one aspect of marriage which he said had "scales falling off of their eyes." He asked if anyone knew why we even have marriage licenses --- nobody raised their hand.

"We have a marriage license because Progressives wanted to make sure blacks and whites never mixed races. We have a blood test to keep the undesirables from breeding. That's all nonsense. That's all eugenics. So why are we arguing over marriage licenses?" Glenn asked.

Many seemed to really understand what Glenn was trying to say: Stop arguing nonsense and stick to your principles.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."
