Did Glenn REALLY Say Voting for Hillary Was a Moral, Ethical Choice?

The media came up with another doozy of a headline! VICE News Tonight aired an interview with Glenn Monday evening in which a host of topics were discussed. The resulting headlines suggested Glenn found voting for Hillary the moral and ethical choice this election season. Nothing could be further from the truth. In actuality, the moral and ethical choice Glenn mentioned was not voting for Trump --- a completely different scenario than casting a vote for Hillary:

RELATED: I Am Neither Endorsing Nor Voting for Hillary Clinton

It is not acceptable to ask a moral, dignified man to cast his vote to help elect an immoral man who is absent decency or dignity. If the consequence of standing against Trump and for principles is indeed the election of Hillary Clinton, so be it. At least it is a moral, ethical choice.

As Thomas Jefferson famously said:

Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blind-folded fear.

So Glenn did question and consider voting for Hillary Clinton --- for about five minutes before coming to his conclusion: No.

Read below or listen to the full segment for answers to these bold questions:

• Did Glenn calculate before answering the reporter at VICE?

• What color is Hillary Clinton's horse?

• For how long has Glenn been saying the Clintons are corrupt?

• Has Glenn ever questioned the existence of God?

• How will Donald Trump destroy capitalism?

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:

GLENN: So I'm at the top of one of these mountains, and the vice guy says to me, "So do you ever consider voting for Hillary Clinton?"

Oh, my gosh. Wait a minute. Let me calculate. Calculate. What would that mean if I say this? Hang on just a second. That might mean I would lose some portions of my audience. But I could gain other portions of my audience. No, wait a minute. Let me calculate. Calculate. Calculate.

Oh, I didn't calculate. I just said, "Yes, I have. Yes, I have."

Now, that's crazy, especially if you didn't hear the rest of the conversation. Now, they put about seven seconds, but we had a deeper conversation than that. But I'm fine with the seven seconds. I immediately dismissed it because she's just as bad. She's a horse of another color. They're the same.

Well, why would you even say that? Well, because I don't calculate. I thought that's what we didn't like about people.

See, the thing -- the success of this show is also its worst enemy. The success of this show is: I'm honest. I'll tell you exactly what I'm thinking at all times. Guard down, I'm going to tell you.

The governor on the show is, I'm going to tell you. And sometimes you're not going to like it. But the reason why we're successful is I don't calculate. The reason why we're not more successful is I don't calculate.

So you got to take the good with the bad. Now, what could you possibly mean by that, Glenn? How could you possibly -- I knew it. You were for Hillary the whole time.


Let me tell you what happened.

PAT: Even though, seven seconds after you said that, you said, "And you would never vote for her."

GLENN: Never. Never.

PAT: So...

GLENN: So here's what happened: Gosh, I don't think I've ever told you this before. So it's going to sound like it's a made-up thing because it sounds like it might have been important. But if it was important, I would have told you this before.

Question with boldness, even the very existence of God. For if there be a God, he must surely rather honest questioning over blind-folded fear.

Now, I know exactly who Hillary Clinton is. I've seen her coming since 1991. Pat, has there been a moment since 1991 that you or I have ever considered the Clintons anything other than thoroughly corrupt?

PAT: Nope.

GLENN: Okay. So how could you possibly consider Hillary Clinton? To tell you the truth -- you know this. I sit down with my family every Sunday. And I don't want to say which family member, but one of my family members said, "Dad, how can you -- how can you believe the things you do about Hillary Clinton and not vote for her?" Hmm. I don't -- what do you mean?

She never said this. Binary choice. It's going to be one of the two. So how can you not vote to stop him?

Hmm. Have you not considered -- have you not even considered that?



So I considered it. Just like I considered back in 1994, "You know what, I've never questioned God." When I read that line from Thomas Jefferson, question with boldness even the very existence of God, for if there be a God, he must surely rather honest questioning over blind-folded fear. I had never done that. I lived in blind-folded fear. I'm going to go question God. You know what, I've never considered that he doesn't exist. I'm an agnostic.

In fact, I'm an atheist. No, I'm an agnostic. Okay?

So I went and I thought, "Okay. I do believe he is so dangerous that he could spell the doom of not just our republic, but the Western way of life. He would destroy capitalism, because it will be blamed on capitalism, on this capitalist." This country was doing fine. We had money in the bank in this country. And then we had all this progress and all this growth, and then he took over and put all these capitalist things -- which aren't capitalist -- and destroyed it.

Nope. Nope. He'll destroy capitalism. Worse yet, he'll destroy -- it's one thing to be attacked from the outside, but our religions -- our faith, our religions, our houses of worship are being corrupted from the inside because of this guy. We are all saying, "I think this is wrong, but I'll endorse it." What?

That's pretty dangerous. So I considered it, for about five minutes.

Fortunately, President Trump walked away from his attempted assassination with very minor injuries. The bullet that wounded Trump's ear could have just as easily ended his life, and his survival is nothing short of a miracle.

Sadly, that miracle didn't extend to everyone attending Trump's ill-fated Pennsylvania rally. Three other people were shot. David Dutch and James Copenhaver, both Pennslyavia residents, are thankfully in stable condition. Corey Comperatore, however, tragically died after being shot while protecting his wife and daughter from the hail of gunfire.

“Corey died a hero."

Camperatore, a 50-year-old loving father and husband from Buffalo Township, Pennsylvania leaves behind his daughter Allyson, his wife Helen, sister Dawn, and many other friends and family. Camperatore was a man of service, having spent 43 years as part of the Buffalo Township Volunteer Fire Company and had worked his way to becoming the fire chief when he stepped down to spend more time with his daughter.

Corey's friends and family have nothing but good things to say about him, and judging by their testimonies, Corey's final heroic act was consistent with how the volunteer firefighter lived his life.

According to many people who knew Compertore, he was a true patriot who loved his country. He was a fan of President Trump. Compertore was very excited to attend Saturday's rally, which he expressed in his last social media post.


During his speech addressing the shooting, President Biden expressed his condolences to the Comperatore family, stating that "He was a father. He was protecting his family from the bullets that were being fired.”

Democrat Mutiny? These prominent Progressives and Democratic leaders DEMAND that Biden withdraw

Biden is still taking hard blows from both sides of the aisle after his abysmal performance in last month's presidential debate. As Glenn pointed out in his post-debate coverage, Biden came across as so incompetent that it has made many Americans scared that, should the country face a major threat, Biden would be unable to respond to it. This includes many Democrats, who are finally admitting that Biden isn't as fit as they have been claiming for the last four years.

Many names have already been suggested as potential replacements for the Democratic nominee, but many people, including some Democrats, don't believe Biden should even stay in office for the election. Here are some prominent progressives and Democratic lawmakers who have called for President Biden's resignation:

These TOP 5 new technologies left Glenn SHOCKED

Peter Macdiarmid / Staff | Getty Images

Glenn has been covering some of the most groundbreaking, exciting, and often terrifying technological advances. Some new tech has the potential to make a positive impact. Some tech is just SUPER cool, like a flame-throwing robot dog. However, there is also a dark side to technology. Glenn exposes how some new technological developments, particularly in the realm of AI, pose serious ethical questions.

Here are the top five new technologies that Glenn covered that will make your jaw drop:

Anti-gravity device

This new technology developed by Dr. Charles Buhler and his team may change everything we know about transportation and travel. Described as "propellant-less propulsion" by Dr. Buhler, this technology appears to defy gravity and is potentially a way for people to travel into and through space without the need for rockets. It doesn't stop there either, this tech could be used to forever change the way we travel here on Earth.

Human embryo-powered supercomputer

To have massively powerful AI, something, which many people seem to have an invested interest in, you need a lot of electricity to power the computers that host the artificial intelligences. Naturally, this energy consumption upsets the environmentalists so in response a terrifying solution was developed. Bio Processors are essentially computer chips powered by human cells, specifically stem cells, which are predominantly harvested from embryos. These Bio Processors have a limited shelf life, meaning they need a steady supply of stem cells to keep the computers that use them operational. What could be more terrifying than an AI that eats human cells?

Voice-stealing AI

When ChatGPT came out in late 2022 its power and versatility took the world by storm. Suddenly, students had it write entire essays in mere seconds, and it was creating songs and poems with ease. The capabilities of the ChatGPT AI were as disturbing as they were impressive, but after a recent update, it took a hard turn towards disturbing. OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, decided to give the program a voice and tried to recruit famous actress Scarlett Johansson to lend her voice to the machine. After she declined the offer, OpenAI went ahead and released the update for ChatGPT featuring a voice that sounded eerily similar to Johansson's. While OpenAI claims it's a different, similar-sounding voice actress, the idea that a computer is going around with your stolen voice is terrifying.

Flamethrower robot dog

How could you possibly ever make something cooler than a flamethrower? Simple, strap it to the back of a robotic dog of course! Originally built to help fight forest fires (ironically enough) by creating backburns, Glenn pointed out that a pack of these bad boys patrolling your property would be the ultimate home defense. Nobody would come anywhere near your house if it was guarded by a few of these firey companions.

Wormhole-generating UFO's

It's been a decade since the tragic disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. No trace of the aircraft or any of its passengers, except a few small pieces of debris, were ever found nor was an official cause of the disappearance ever given. There have been an infinite number of theories explaining what might have happened, but this one from investigative journalist Ashton Forbes might take the cake for the wildest. Forbes joined Glenn on his radio show and brought with him convincing video evidence that seemed to show the now-missing aircraft being circled by three mysterious orbs before suddenly disappearing in a flash of light. Does this video show the doomed aircraft being sucked into an artificial wormhole, or is it an amazing piece of hoaxwork?

Independence Day is one of the few days when Americans come together to celebrate our country and the continued vision that our Founding Fathers crafted in 1776. But what is that vision?

It's becoming increasingly important to read the Founding Fathers in their own words and to remember the vision that they cast for our nation. Here are our TOP 10 favorite Founding Fathers' quotes to help us remember their original views of government, freedom, and the American vision.
