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.

(chuckling)

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?

No.

Oh.

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.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."
