Thomas Paine and George Washington Disagreed — And They Were Both Patriots

With no intention of talking about the Sean Hannity situation and making it a back-and-forth between the two, Glenn felt compelled to say a few more things on radio Thursday morning.

"There is a lesson to be learned here, and I want to show you that this is exactly the time that I have been, hopefully, preparing people for, including me," Glenn said.

He reminded listeners of a time when some would say in anger, "Come this way," and many people would follow.

"We need to be an audience, we need to be a group of people that stand in our own places and say, 'No, no, don't go that way,'" Glenn said.

Martin Luther King said that love will always win, that light will always conquer the dark.

"The only way to bring healing is not with more anger, rage or hate, but it is listening to one another, trying to understand where someone is coming from and saying, 'I come unarmed. You can do what you want, I'm not swinging back,'" Glenn said.

With that, he played what Sean Hannity said yesterday afternoon:

SEAN: When you add the Glenn Becks of the world that just -- you know, I've heard Nazi references on his program. I have heard him refer to me, "How does Sean Hannity sleep at night?" Frankly, I sleep well because I kept my promise. I serve my audience, and I'm keeping my promise now.

"Okay, I want you to know that so have we. We have kept our promise. Do you have the thing from 2014, I think it was? In 2014, I got on the air, and I said, 'Look, here's the thing. I'm not going to vote for the lesser of two evils anymore,'" Glenn said.

From Election Day, November 4, 2014:

"If you remember right, a year and a half, two years ago, we all looked at each other, and we made each other raise the hand and swear to one another that not only we wouldn't vote for the lesser of two evils, but we would help each other because we're going to get weak," Glenn said.

"Stop us," Stu remembered.

"We did," Jeffy added.

Pat then played audio from the 2013 archives:

GLENN: I really will not vote for another person. Never before in my life have I said this. I just voted at a stupid local election. I mean, jeez, for the love of pete, I voted. I will not vote for another Republican like Chris Christie or Mitt Romney. I will not vote. I will skip it. I will not cast my vote for that.

STU: I'm pulling the calendar out right now.

GLENN: Put it. Put it.

STU: And I'm going to put a 2016 date on the reminder.

GLENN: And you know what, I want you to chastise me. I want you to play this -- let me talk to future Glenn.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: Glenn, if you -- let me look right into the camera: Glenn, don't do it. Don't do it. They have fooled you again. They have played all those games again. And if you're thinking right now, well, but the other person -- doesn't matter! Stop selling your values out! Stop it right now! You play that.

"Three years ago. Three years ago," Pat said.

"So this is three years ago. If anybody thinks that my stance has anything to do with Hillary Clinton, anything to do with Donald Trump, anything to do with being angry about Ted Cruz, it's none of that. It's none of that," Glenn said.

"We made a promise to ourselves and our audience," Pat said.

"I said that I am going to stand on principle. That doesn't make me self-righteous. That just makes me exactly like you, Sean. You said you're keeping a promise to yourself and your audience, so am I. It's just a different promise," Glenn said.

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
