Whether You're Gay or Straight, Just Show up and Do Your Job

When did sexuality become such a vital component of someone's public persona? Do we really need to know who is having sex with whom? Evidently, the NHL thinks its important.

"I don't know if it's a requirement, but it seems like every team now in the NHL has an LGBTQIA outreach program. Like they have someone assigned to each team that actually does outreach to, I guess, gay hockey players," Co-host Stu Burguiere said Thursday on radio.

He also had one other pertinent thing to say on the topic. Who cares?

"Whether you're gay or straight or whatever else, you got to show up to work and do your freaking job," Stu said. "That's it. Don't worry about whether you're gay or straight or whatever. Just show up, do your job. If you're having problems with someone else, that's wrong. We'll take care of it. But just show up and do your freaking job."

PAT: Remember Michael Sam?

STU: Oh, yeah.

JEFFY: Sure do.

STU: Missouri, right.

PAT: First openly gay football player to be drafted in the NFL.

JEFFY: Yes.

PAT: I -- I'm not sure the guy would have been drafted had it not been widely publicized that he was gay.

STU: He made it all the way to the seventh round, right?

JEFFY: Hmm.

STU: He did have a good college career.

JEFFY: He did. He was really good. He would have been drafted. I think he would have been drafted.

PAT: I don't know about that. He's back in the news, saying he's -- he always felt like an outsider. Always felt like an outsider. The deaths of his two older brothers, the bullying he endured by other family members, and even his mother's religion, Jehovah's Witness, made him feel apart from his peers.

STU: That's some real tragedy there. I didn't know the background.

PAT: Yeah. I didn't know that either.

I'm not sure -- they didn't really explain how Jehovah's Witnesses made him feel apart from his peers. Maybe because they weren't Jehovah's Witnesses. But nothing made him feel more like an outsider than being gay in the NFL.

He said, I had to prove myself to show that I was one of the guys. I was cut from the Rams, even though I was in the top five in sacks. Then I went to the Cowboys and had to do it all over again. And then I was cut there. I always felt like an outsider looking in.

STU: I mean, you know, he did not -- he did not perform at a --

JEFFY: No.

STU: In the preseason, he had a couple good games, it's true. But, you know, he was too slow.

PAT: Right.

STU: His 40 time was terrible. It did not look like he was going to get drafted because of his performance at the Combine, which is all about measurables.

JEFFY: Right. Yeah.

STU: And, you know, while I think it would have been -- teams did give him a chance. It didn't wind up working out. I think he went to Canada after that for a while. I really don't think that it had anything to do with it. Although I did hear that the NHL now which had zero openly gay players has now -- I don't know if it's a requirement, but it seems like every team now in the NHL has an LGBTQIA outreach program. Like they have someone assigned to each time that actually does outreach to I guess gay hockey players.

PAT: Really?

STU: Yeah.

PAT: Despite the fact that they don't know about a single gay hockey player.

STU: Well, it seems like they want to have one. Right?

JEFFY: Well, yeah.

STU: They want to say, we have a gay hockey player, guys.

JEFFY: They're going to get one.

STU: You can't criticize us anymore because we have a gay hockey player.

PAT: Are they being criticized? Are people saying, "Hey, you know what we need? We need a homosexual hockey player. We need that."

JEFFY: Well, you know what it is, is that people are afraid to come out. I mean, I'm sure -- their outreach campaign is I'm sure saying that, "Look, there are gay hockey players. They're just afraid to say anything."

STU: Right. And that may be it.

PAT: Maybe. Or maybe there aren't any.

STU: I think also it's a PR move. Maybe not. I think it's a PR move if they say -- if people say, "Well, you're not being -- you're not a gay-friendly league," which at some point they'll be the target of that accusation, surely, if they don't have gay players. Then can say, "Well, we have done X, Y, and Z. We have taken these steps." Because I just think it's just a bunch of fear from these businesses. And it's strange in that like I know of no gay man who thinks that that has to do -- like your sexual preference is something that is obviously a big part of your life. It's an interesting part of your life to you.

I don't know what it has to do with hockey.

PAT: Yeah. Or baseball or football or anything else.

STU: Yeah. It's -- the whole point is, we're all supposed to be able to do our own thing and do our jobs without having that overcome our lives.

JEFFY: Right.

STU: Whether you're gay or straight or whatever else, you got to show up to work and do your freaking job. You know, you need that Patriots' job. Do your job. That's it. Don't worry about whether you're gay or straight or whatever. Just show up, do your job. If you're having problems with someone else, that's wrong. We'll take care of it. But just show up and do your freaking job.

The New Red Scare & Our 'Reality Czars'

The American Red Scare of the 1950s may be one of the most important — and most terrifying — events in our nation's history. It was a witch hunt — an all-out assault — on any American citizen deemed to be a threat simply because of their thoughts.
Led by Senator McCarthy, the House of Un-American Activities Committee destroyed lives. Mere accusations sometimes meant you were stripped of your job and your dignity. Sound familiar?

On Glenn TV tonight, Glenn Beck outlines how we've gone from pursuing alleged communists to pursuing "right-wing extremists." But how are our new "reality czars" defining that? Is it Trump supporters, red-state Republicans, conspiracy-theorist "nut jobs"? Our new Red Scare is here, America. Are you on the list? Later, Donald Trump Jr. joins Glenn to call out this modern McCarthyism and explains the real reason for President Trump's second impeachment trial.

Watch the special in full below:

Only BlazeTV subscribers can watch the full, unedited interview with Donald Trump Jr., free from "reality czars." Glenn asks Don Jr. how President Trump is handling the impeachment, what happens to the conservative movement going forward, and whether it will be led by a Trump.

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

Jewish Space Lasers & Deplatforming 'MAGA Media' | Ben Shapiro | Ep 96

Behold Ben Shapiro, the Great Wrecker of Libs himself. From the growing contempt for free speech to the fatal excesses of cancel culture and the forcefulness of so-called racial equity, Ben smashes claims that conservatives don't battle censorship. All of it is fueled by the Left's need for constant revolution and their habitual gaslighting. Seriously, the gaslighting is nonstop: At this very moment, makeshift fencing (aka a wall) surrounds the Capitol. Democrats used to hate walls and borders, but thousands of National Guardsmen occupy Washington, D.C., for unclear reasons, for an indefinite amount of time, and the Democrats are happy about it?

Ben also addresses some of the more "creative" conspiracy theories of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, like Jewish space lasers. And what about the obsession to rid this "cancer" from Congress? Ben says it's all politics: "We're all old enough to remember [before] Marjorie Taylor Greene, it was Steve King, and when it was not Steve King and it was Christine O'Donnell, and when it was not Christine O'Donnell, it was Todd Akin. Meanwhile, I got Nancy Pelosi on the cover of a magazine with Ilhan Omar, and it's like, well, 'that's just the way things go' five minutes after she was about to censure her for her anti-Semitism." Ben ends the show on a strategy to help Democrats and tearful journalists at Politico stop treating conservatives as domestic enemies.

How Biden will COMPLETE Obama's radical transformation of America

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal the moment in history we went from "America the Free" to "America the Oligarchy." He runs through a terrifying checklist of how much damage has been done since former President Barack Obama promised to "fundamentally transform the United States of America," and argues the Biden administration is really just Obama 2.0 on steroids, and progressive ideals are being executed at a hyper-accelerated pace.

While Joe Biden signed record numbers of executive actions, the World Economic Forum gathered to further push the Great Reset, and the ideas are nearly identical. There's a very specific reason why the first keynote speaker last week at the World Economic Forum wasn't an expert on free market capitalism, but the president of ... CHINA.

We are hurtling toward an oligarchy where Big Government merges with Big Corporations. They'll have all the power, and according to our betters behind the Great Reset, "You'll own nothing and you'll be happy."

Democrats are using the GameStop, Reddit saga to CRUSH the underdog

Glenn explains how — despite what Democrats will tell the public — they care NOTHING for the little guy...all they want is control, and the GameStop & Reddit saga is showing us how much control they want. Because right now they're doing everything they can to CRUSH the underdog. Glenn says that when the government gets heavily involved in the stock market & when you can only invest in a company (like GameStop) from the stock exchange in MEXICO, it means we no longer have a free market here in America anymore...
