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.
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.
