Anti-Gun Snoop Dogg Points Gun at Presidential Look-alike in Video

If someone touts their anti-violence and anti-gun beliefs, shouldn't those beliefs translate throughout their work and life? In his latest music video, Snoop Dogg, who is on record as being anti-gun, points a gun at the head of a Donald Trump-clad clownish figure, later putting him in chains and beating him. Lawrence Jones, host of The Lawrence Jones Show on TheBlaze, joined Glenn on radio to discuss the outright hypocrisy in Snoop Dogg's latest music video --- and how the world would have gone crazy if it had been President Obama instead of President Trump.

GLENN: But how do we trust -- what are we going to come to and trust? What we have to do is we have to hold people's feet to the fire. And I invite you to hold my feet to the fire. Hold my feet to the fire. Whatever the fire is that you started, that you say -- for instance, hold my feet to the fire. If I am -- you know the approach I'm trying to take. If I'm not fair -- if I'm resorting to name-calling and everything else. Fine. Hold my feet to the fire. I want you to. I want to be a better man and broadcaster.

Let's say this, if Donald Trump says the CBO is good, and he says this for ten years and we have evidence, hold his feet to the fire. What has changed? Don't give me hyperbole. Just tell me what time of day changed.

If you say something is bad and now all of a sudden it's good, great. I'm willing to believe you. Tell me what the pivot is. Tell me what has changed.

Let's take Snoop Dogg. I've brought Lawrence in. Lawrence Jones. He's one of the commentators of TheBlaze. He was with Dallas police, right? Which police?

LAWRENCE: I did reserves. I did reserves.

GLENN: Okay. So an investigator and private eye and now a commentator and is deeply rooted in the black community here in Dallas. He came in this morning with his hair on fire about Snoop Dogg.

I've seen the -- I've seen the Snoop Dogg video. Have you guys seen it yet?

PAT: Uh-uh.

GLENN: Okay. So Snoop Dogg does a video where he has a Donald Trump lookalike in clown makeup, orange clown makeup. And he points a gun to the president's head. Then he puts it in chains and everything else. And they're slapping him around.

Look at the picture right there. Tell me that that could have been done by anybody on Barack Obama. The world would have come undone if anyone would have done a picture, let alone a music video about shooting the president of the United States. Couldn't have done it. Couldn't have done it.

Snoop Dogg is also, quote, anti-violence. Anti-gun.

Well, what the hell is happening here?

LAWRENCE: Uh-huh.

GLENN: His feet need to be held to the fire that he started.

But, Lawrence, will anybody?

LAWRENCE: No. And this is not just about him coming after the president, any president. I think that's wrong.

It's about your word as a man. This is what Snoop said: He's over this no guns allowed initiative. But this is a recent quote from him: He said, I've made a lot of mistakes. I've grown and learned. I don't feel like guns are necessary.

He's totally against guns. But you come out in a video promoting shooting the president. And liberals have been arguing -- debating saying, "Well, it's a fake gun." These are the same liberals that freak out when kids bring toy guns to school.

GLENN: Can you imagine? The class two lookalike finger gun.

LAWRENCE: Right. Right. Right. But this is okay?

He then in the lyrics say, I'm against the young black men that get 20 to 30 years in jail for weed. But you endorsed Hillary Clinton. And she was with the '94 crime bill. So I'm seeing this hypocritical stance, feeding my community this nonsense, you're saying you're against this stuff, but when it benefits you, you're turning the page. He also now has a show with Martha Stewart called Potluck. It's to promote unity.

PAT: Wait. Snoop Dogg has a show with Martha Stewart?

LAWRENCE: Yes. Martha Stewart.

PAT: Talk about unlikely bedfellows, huh?

LAWRENCE: Right. Right.

This show all started because liberals created this meme with Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg with a picture next to them. Next to each other. And the meme said, which one is the felon? And so it went viral. So they decided to have a show to promote unity. To try cultural food and bring people together.

PAT: That's great. I like that though.

LAWRENCE: You tell me how that's a message of unity.

PAT: Because Martha Stewart is the felon, obviously. That's great.

(chuckling)

LAWRENCE: He just gets a kick out of that.

PAT: I like that. That one, I like. That's one of the few things liberals have done that I like.

GLENN: So you have a problem with that? You don't think that promotes unity?

LAWRENCE: That show?

GLENN: Yeah. I haven't seen the show.

LAWRENCE: The show. If they stand by what they say they're doing. It's like you as Glenn Beck saying, hey, I want to have unity. Then come on your show and say something totally against you.

Is it really genuine, or is it just about ratings and getting more money? Which is cool, just be honest about it.

GLENN: Well, I think we know with those two, it's just about more ratings and more money.

LAWRENCE: Exactly. Just be honest about it. I'm cool if that's what you want to do.

GLENN: See, I don't think -- so here's the problem -- here's the problem with this: It requires you to be intellectually curious, intellectually rigorous, and intellectually honest. I don't think we're any of those.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I mean, for instance, Stu, you've -- what was it, Monday or last week, we mentioned offhand in something else -- we weren't talking about this. In something else, I said, oh, by the way, Hitler would have been the biggest environmentalist. Right? Because he loved animals. He would have been a member of PETA. He loved animals. Loved dogs more than people, certainly more than Jews, but I think more than all people. And he was a huge environmentalist. And you said...

STU: Living space was obviously the big concern for the German people. They needed their living space.

PAT: Well, that's why he needed to invade Poland and France. They needed more space.

GLENN: Sustainability. He didn't call it that.

PAT: They needed space.

STU: Right. He said they needed more land to grow food for the German people.

PAT: Right.

STU: It was essentially an overpopulation concern, which later became popular in the '60s. But that was essentially what he was arguing. Now, of course, these were also arguments to cover hatred for certain people.

GLENN: Oh, yeah, yeah.

STU: So it's more complicated than that.

GLENN: So I said, he would have been the biggest environmentalist. If he would have had the global warming movement, he would have been right in there with them.

Now, that doesn't mean that environmentalists are Nazis. That doesn't mean that people who love animals -- I love animals -- are Nazis.

PAT: The person who said the thing on the air is a vegetarian. I am a vegetarian.

GLENN: Right. Right. So what happened --

STU: That doesn't make me a Nazi.

GLENN: So GlennBeck.com wrote something. And it was tweeted out. And everybody on the left, "Oh, Glenn Beck, see, look, he's against unity. What a fraud he is, saying that environmentalists are Nazis." No. That's not what I said.

Just because Hitler believed things and would have used that movement that is going on today, doesn't make anybody in that movement today a Nazi.

We're not -- we're not willing to be intellectually vigorous at all.

PAT: It's their fascistic practices and policies that make them Nazis. That's --

GLENN: Okay. Pat, thank you for that.

PAT: I needed to clarify that particular part. Right?

GLENN: Well, in some ways. Not Nazis, but in some ways, what they are saying is fascistic.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: I will tell you exactly what you do.

PAT: What you can eat. How you can live.

GLENN: I will tell you in China. We agreed -- who was it, Biden, that basically said, we're not going to argue with your one-child policy in China?

Well, I'm going to argue against that. You don't have a right to tell people how many children they can have.

So we're not intellectually vigorous or honest at all.

LAWRENCE: I don't think it's the thinking though. I think it's winning to win. Both sides want to win. So anything that furthers them winning, they just think it. Like with Samantha Bee the other day. Like, I think what she did was wrong. But I know that she didn't know that kid was a Nazi.

GLENN: She didn't.

LAWRENCE: I mean, didn't know that he had cancer --

STU: She definitely didn't know he was a Nazi.

LAWRENCE: Cancer. she didn't know.

GLENN: He was a Democrat.

LAWRENCE: But she was doing it to further her argument. So it's like just a joke.

GLENN: But she wasn't even furthering her argument, she was making a joke. And it wasn't even her. It wasn't even her.

LAWRENCE: Right. I think it was wrong, the whole situation. But I don't want her fired and all that for it. But our side is like, we got to get them back, because they did it to us.

GLENN: Did you see the guy we had on yesterday, Colin Moriarty? He said it was an amicable split, but he's no longer with his company. He's huge, but I think it was because of the joke he made last week, where -- because his partner came out and said, "He says a lot of stupid things that he shouldn't be saying, blah, blah." And he shows up right after being on our show. And then he says, "Oh, by the way, I've -- we've split in our partnership."

PAT: Oh, wow.

GLENN: I think that guy lost his gig because of a joke.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: I mean, let's -- let's be intellectually honest on things.

JEFFY: Yeah.

GLENN: Thanks for stopping by, Lawrence.

ESG scores EXPLAINED: This is why companies are going woke

Chances are, you've noticed that many large companies have decided to become woke activists, despite the fact that alienating half your customer base is a terrible business strategy.

This woke shift isn't being driven by the usual market forces. It's the Great Reset's ESG score system at work, Glenn Beck said on "GlennTV." Under the “environmental, social, and governance” score system, companies will no longer make decisions based on what you, the consumer, want. Now, it's all about what those in power deem society should want. And it's not just businesses that are affected, he explained.

The Truth Behind the 5G Airline Hysteria | Brendan Carr | Ep 130

The rollout of 5G has begun across the country … except at airports. Rumors are everywhere that the new 5G networks could cause massive — and deadly — disruptions to air traffic. But is this a factual fear, or does it belong in the same bucket as the billion other conspiracy theories surrounding 5G? Population control, invisible propaganda, hundreds of birds that die all at once, wavelengths that microwave your brain ... And what about the less far-fetched concerns about what 5G could usher in: Increased Big Tech monitoring, ESG scores, the metaverse? Since President Biden isn’t doing anything to calm America’s fears, Glenn sits down with FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr to cut through the noise and separate fact from fiction. Yes, Carr explains, there is a lot to be concerned about. But he also details why he’s so optimistic about the potential a 5G-powered world could have.

WATCH: The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism

The Great Reset is not just an elitist idea — it’s not even a socialist utopian concept. It’s a real-world fascist threat to every American from Wall Street to Main Street. It’s happening now in policies and cultural shifts big and small, obvious and subtle, from environmental promises to corporations going woke. But the mainstream media, global elites, and politicians brushed off the Great Reset as “nothing to see here.” Another myth they push: “The World Economic Forum is just a conference for elites who have no REAL power.”

Glenn Beck first exposed the Great Reset almost two years ago, and the globalist cries of "conspiracy theorist" soon followed. They said he believed the WEF was a “master cabal calling the shots from some evil underground lair.” But Glenn Beck never said that. Instead, he uncovered the true intentions of global leaders in finance and politics by simply highlighting their own words.

This week, the same global elites are doubling down on their agenda at the World Economic Forum’s Davos Agenda virtual event. But still, the global elites — like Twitter’s Jack Dorsey — are trying to downplay the WEF’s influence to stop people like us from interfering with their plans. The oligarchy will prosper in the new world order they’ve designed. You will not.

So Glenn unveils a master chalkboard based on his best-selling new book to outline the threats from globalists and why we must stop their agenda if we hope to keep the precious freedoms we still have.

Explaining Washington’s rumored FORCED QUARANTINE law

Despite what the mainstream media may say, on January 12 Glenn DID fact-check a claim he made on Tucker Carlson about a rumored Washington law that could force citizens to quarantine or isolate. In this clip, Glenn clarifies his original statement, explaining that the law in question has been on Washington books since 2003 and therefore is NOT a result of the COVID pandemic. But Glenn also explains the more concerning context he — and those in the mainstream media — missed too: the fact that this law didn’t seem too farfetched for Washington citizens should be VERY concerning to us all.
