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.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
