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.

COVID is back! Or that is what we’re being told anyway...

A recent spike in COVID cases has triggered the left's alarm bells, and the following institutions have begun to reinstate COVID-era mandates. You might want to avoid them if you enjoy breathing freely...

Do YOU think institutions should bring back COVID-era mandates if cases increase? Let us know your thoughts HERE.

There was a time when both the Left and the Right agreed that parents have the final say in raising their children... Not anymore.

In the People's Republic of California, the STATE, not parents, will determine whether children should undergo transgender treatments. The California state legislature just passed a law that will require judges in child custody cases to consider whether parents support a child’s gender transition. According to the law, the state now thinks total affirmation is an integral part of a child’s “health, safety, and welfare.”

We are inching closer to a dystopia where the state, not the parents, have ultimate rights over their children, a history that people from former Soviet nations would feign repeating.

The Biden admin has let in MORE illegal aliens than the populations of THESE 15 states

There are currently an estimated 16.8 MILLION illegal aliens residing in the United States as of June 2023, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). This number is already 1.3 million higher than FAIR's January 2022 estimate of 15.5 million and a 2.3 million increase from its end-of-2020 estimate. Even Democrats like New York City's Mayor Adams Mayor Adams are waking up to what Conservatives have been warning for years: we are in a border CRISIS.

However, this isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010. In the first two years of the Biden administration alone, the illegal alien population increased by 16 PERCENT nationwide, imposing a whopping net cost of $150.6 BILLION PER YEAR on American taxpayers. That is nearly DOUBLE the total amount that the Biden administration has sent to Ukraine.

This isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010.

These large numbers often make it difficult to conceptualize the sheer impact of illegal immigration on the United States. To put it in perspective, we have listed ALL 15 states and the District of Colombia that have smaller populations than the 2.3 MILLION illegal immigrants, who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration. That is more than the entire populations of Wyoming, Vermont, and South Dakota COMBINED—and the American taxpayers have to pay the price.

Here are all 16 states/districts that have FEWER people than the illegal immigrants who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration.

1. New Mexico

Population: 2,110,011

2. Idaho

Population: 1,973,752

3. Nebraska

Population: 1,972,292

4. West Virginia

Population: 1,764,786

5. Hawaii

Population: 1,433,238

6. New Hampshire

Population: 1,402,957

7. Maine

Population: 1,393,442

8. Montana

Population: 1,139,507

9. Rhode Island

Population: 1,090,483

10. Delaware

Population: 1,031,985

11. South Dakota

Population: 923,484

12. North Dakota

Population: 780,588

13. Alaska

Population: 732,984

14. Washington DC

POLL: Should the Government control the future of AI?

Earlier this week, tech titans, lawmakers, and union leaders met on Capitol Hill to discuss the future of AI regulation. The three-hour meeting boasted an impressive roster of tech leaders including, Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, and others, along with more than 60 US Senators.

The meeting was closed to the public, so what was exactly discussed is unknown. However, what we do know is that a majority of the CEOs support AI regulation, the most vocal of which is Elon Musk. During the meeting, Musk called AI "a double-edged sword" and strongly pushed for regulation in the interest of public safety.

A majority of the CEOs support AI regulation.

Many other related issues were discussed, including the disruption AI has caused to the job market. As Glenn has discussed on his program, the potential for AI to alter or destroy jobs is very real, and many have already felt the effects. From taxi drivers to Hollywood actors and writers, AI's presence can be felt everywhere and lawmakers are unsure how to respond.

The potential for AI to alter or destroy jobs is very real.

Ultimately, the meeting's conclusion was less than decisive, with several Senators making comments to the tune of "we need more time before we act." The White House is expected to release an executive order regarding AI regulation by the end of the year. But now it's YOUR turn to tell us what YOU think needs to be done!

Should A.I. be regulated?

Can the government be trusted with the power to regulate A.I.? 

Can Silicon Valley be trusted to regulate AI? 

Should AI development be slowed for safety, despite its potential advantages?

If a job can be done cheaper and better by AI, should it be taken away from a human?

Do you feel that your job is threatened by AI?
