Glenn Delivers Brutally Honest Reply to Grumbling Trump Supporter

In this contentious election cycle, each day we grind closer to the November election, attacks from both parties grow ever more vicious. Having taken a firm stance against both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, Glenn has faced harsh criticism from all sides.

Many of Glenn's followers use Facebook to voice their feelings on Glenn's position. While some comments are clearly written by trolls, many people strive for civil discourse.

Here's what one Trump supporter named NancyAnn said in a recent comment on Glenn's Facebook page:

Glenn - I think you need to get back to the earth. You have lost a reasonable amount of coherency -. I was very rah rah Glenn Beck. . But listening to you lately ..leaves much to be desired. You are safe, remember, many of us are not. Get behind Trump !

Numerous comments that followed either defended Glenn's stance or else were in agreement with NancyAnn. When Glenn saw what was going on, he entered the conversation with a detailed reply of his own:

Nancy, I appreciate your respectful way of asking. I also appreciate people's responses (although, I thought you were thoughtful compared to most). People are really tired of the name-calling and bashing.

I support your decision and would drive you to the polls to vote for Trump. We all must follow the dictate of our own conscience.

I obviously believe things that you do not. I believe them as strongly as I believed in the caliphate, and I feel much the same way I did when defining George Soros.

In fact, you used almost the same language that the Soros people told me: "This ship is sailing and there is no turning back. Get on the boat."

Sorry, I can't. But I support your decision and I hope you can support mine.

Believe me, I know that about 80 percent of my own audience disagrees with me.

That should tell you how strongly I feel. It would be one thing to believe what I do and go along --- the easiest road to take. Or I could believe what I do and remain silent --- also very easy. The third option would be to believe what I do and make a case once --- a little harder.

Why would I choose the hardest and most business-deadly path? To go against 80 percent of my audience?

1. I am crazy and drunk, which many in the Trump crowd have claimed.

2. I am a fraud. But if I was, why would I do this when I am not changing any minds and there is no upside for me?

3. Some claim I will make more money bashing Clinton. Actually, not true. I could make far more by being the guy against Trump if he becomes president.

4. I am being consistent with what I said about my personal vote over two years ago. Listen to the audio from Friday's show.

5. I deeply believe after doing extensive research that his unpredictability, his history of progressive liberal policies, his disturbing comments and record of destruction of all who oppose him in the slightest, his admiration for dictators and thugs and the quality of those he surrounds himself with is the most dangerous risk this country has ever taken.

I could be wrong. There is much more I believe that I haven't shared because it is pure speculation on my part. But I believe what I do.

We live in dangerous times.

Some are saying, "the lesser of two evils."

There is another phrase: "Sometimes the DEVIL you know is better than the DEVIL you don't know."

Will the blunt nature of Glenn's response offend some? Perhaps, but at least an open conversation has begun.

It's an emotional time. Hopefully this type of discourse will lead to deeper understanding among Americans, regardless of who they decide to vote for.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
