Can Someone Remind Bill Maher He Supported the Patriarchy in 2016?

Maybe we are or maybe we aren't as far along on women's issues as we'd hoped, but to paint the entire United States with a broad stroke of misogyny isn't accurate. And if you're Bill Maher, a man who supported an old white man in the 2016 presidential election, it's also lacking in self-awareness.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Hello, America. So Bill Maher is on CNN, and he's talking to Jake Tapper. And he says -- you know, they're talking about Hillary Clinton coming out again and whining about why she lost and not having any self-awareness at all. I suck. I suck. Nobody likes me. They like me because of Bill. But if Bill wasn't around, I would have never been a politician or anything that had gone possibly a mayor.

PAT: That would be woke Hillary.

GLENN: That would be woke Hillary.

PAT: But she's not.

GLENN: But she's not woke.

PAT: No.

GLENN: Nobody around her has enough courage to say, "Hillary, you need to let this go, baby, because you played a role in this. Nobody likes you, and you've just overstayed your welcome." And if -- I mean, honestly, we've said this from the beginning, my shoe could have beaten Hillary Clinton. And I think that was proven out with Donald Trump. Somebody that even most people on the right will say, "I mean, I found it really hard to vote for the guy, but I can't go for Hillary." I mean, that's basically saying, "I've got a shoe. And, well, my shoe isn't Hillary."

A lot of what happened here was you had two of the most flawed candidates in American history running against each other. And it was a Sophie's choice in the negative. You wanted to put them both on the train, but you had to select one that stayed with you. And that's what it was.

I want this one to go away, and I don't want to see them again. And that's the way everybody on the left felt about Donald Trump. I'd like to put him on the train, and I never want to think about him again.

So she's not self-aware enough to see, it's just time to go away, Hillary. It's time to go away. You had your chance. You blew it.

And until people can be honest and say, "Look, she was a really flawed candidate," they won't be able to move forward.

Now, listen to what Bill Maher says. This is fascinating.

VOICE: When Bill Maher was asked at the event if misogyny played a role in her loss, she said yes. Do you agree?

BILL: Of course. Absolutely. I think we learned a lot about this country, and we're learning more about it as we watch what goes on with Fox News every day.

VOICE: That is a pretty remarkable turn of event. But you think that's about a misogynistic problem in American corporate culture and not just a few bad apples, I'm guessing.

BILL: Not just corporate culture. You know, I think race is more on the surface, and people talk about it. And there's movements like Black Lives Matter. And I'm glad there are. But I think -- I think we thought we were further along on the woman issue than we are. And I don't think we are.

GLENN: Okay. Stop for a second. I just -- I want to point this out that, okay. Maybe we aren't as far as I thought we were with women because we're not as far along as I thought we were on things like the Constitution. You know, we're not as far along as I thought we were on our principles that bring us together. We're not as far along as I thought we were on -- on anger issues and identity politics. I thought that was one side, but it is also the other side. It's our side too.

So maybe he's right. But I don't -- about some of that. That, you know, maybe we're not as far along as I think we are.

However, to condemn America as this blind country, this jingoistic blind race-hating, Muslim-hating country, you have a guy who grew up in -- outside of America. Has the name -- chosen name of Barack Hussein Obama, while we're fighting a guy named Hussein.

STU: And Osama.

GLENN: And Osama. Who is black.

Now, when, you know -- has -- has the prime minister of England been black? Has the prime minister of Italy, Germany, France -- let's use some of their countries. Cuba, Russia, China, have they've had black guys? No.

PAT: Uh-uh.

GLENN: Okay. So here's a country that not only elected a black man and even his most vocal foes, me, when he was elected, the very next day, I got on and said, "Let's just take a minute here and just celebrate the fact that we're not who everybody says we are." I am thrilled that that barrier is now gone. I'd be thrilled for the barrier -- for a woman to be present.

Who thinks that way? Who thinks that way?

STU: Your chosen candidate, the vice president of that ticket was Carly Fiorina.

GLENN: Yes. Yes.

STU: I mean, that was the one you were rooting for.

GLENN: Yes. I mean, you just don't think this -- you don't think this way. I don't think the vast majority. Now, some do. Okay? But there's always a group of people in any size group that have weird beliefs or wrong beliefs on something. But now listen to what he says. Do you have the rest?

BILL: I mean, there's something like 80 countries who have had a woman leader. Pakistan has had a woman leader. But not the United States of us. Somehow we lag behind that. And I know a lot of people say, "Yes. I'd vote for a woman. I just didn't want to vote for that one."

GLENN: Stop. Hold on just a second. Have they had a Christian leader? Have they had a Jewish leader? Has Pakistan had a white leader? Have they had an Indian leader?

I mean, I just want to throw out.

PAT: A Jewish leader.

GLENN: A Jewish leader. This is our world. That's their world. Well, they've had a woman leader. Okay. They've had a woman leader.

STU: We've never had a Pakistani leader. But Pakistan has. Yeah, so?

GLENN: You're not comparing -- it's culture to culture, dude. Culture to culture.

STU: Ridiculous.

GLENN: Now, listen. There's more.

BILL: Well, let's see next time when there's another woman put up for president, and I don't know how -- I don't know when that's going to happen. It doesn't look any time soon.

GLENN: Carly Fiorina.

VOICE: Well, it might be Elizabeth Warren, we don't know.

GLENN: Carly Fiorina. Now, stop, stop. Instead of Carly Fiorina, it might be Elizabeth Warren. Elizabeth Warren, another person that even people not on the hard left, but on the Democratic side, say is too hard-core left.

STU: Uh-huh. Bernie Sanders. But, you know --

GLENN: Bernie Sanders, who is a woman, and younger. There's a lot of people who think Bernie Sanders is too far. Go ahead.

VOICE: 2020 possibilities, any Democrats that you like that you hope get into the race?

GLENN: Listen to the sexist.

BILL: I still like Bernie Sanders.

GLENN: Okay. Stop. What an unbelievable sexist.

PAT: Everyone else is a misogynist, but he still wants Bernie Sanders. He didn't name a woman.

GLENN: Now, if there was a race between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton --

PAT: Oh, man.

GLENN: Oh, wait a minute. There was. Who was he pushing for?

PAT: What a misogynist.

GLENN: Was he pushing for the old white guy?

STU: So great.

GLENN: Or was he pushing for Hillary Clinton because he's not a misogynist.

STU: That's awesome.

PAT: No, he is a misogynist. He pushed for the old white guy.

GLENN: I mean, it is amazing. Completely amazing.

PAT: Complete unawareness too. They are so self-unaware. It's --

STU: By the way, Bernie is only eight years older than Elizabeth Warren. So I think you would have a very similar profile.

GLENN: No, I'm just saying the old white guy.

STU: It's -- yeah.

GLENN: I mean, I'm tired of the old white guy.

STU: I'm just saying the age isn't too much of a factor.

GLENN: Right?

Oh, my gosh. Stu, why do you hate --

STU: You said younger. I guess technically. Yeah, eight years.

GLENN: Eight years.

And why are you always defending the old white guys? You just want a culture full of old white guys, started by old white guys.

PAT: He's a misogynist.

STU: Well, what candidate would you like if you had a choice of any candidate?

GLENN: I would like -- I don't know if you have met Rodgey Hussein Mao.

(chuckling)

STU: Uh-huh. I haven't.

GLENN: But it is a wonderful unit. I don't want to say person.

STU: Sure, of course not.

GLENN: And I'm going to assign gender. But that's my -- that's the one that I think if America wants to prove itself.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And redeem itself, it will vote for that.

STU: Okay. Good. Okay.

GLENN: Okay. So there you go.

Now, there's more because what I want to show you is they're overplaying their hand. While they're overplaying their hand, they are saying they're overplaying their hand. Do you have the other piece from Bill Maher? Now, listen to this.

PAT: Yeah.

VOICE: So what should Democrats do to win over Trump voters?

BILL: Well, I was just going to say, a bit of it is ease up on the identity politics.

GLENN: Okay. Now, he just played identity politics.

PAT: Identity politics.

GLENN: And then he's saying we should ease up on it. Now, when we come back, I'm going to show you culturally, comedy, television shows, art, that always leads the way. It always -- when you start to see art going a certain way -- and I use art to cover a lot of things -- you see culture start to move. Culture is always ahead of politics. And I want to show you a couple of things that show, again, the culture is being moved away from the identity politics, all of the political correctness, all of the things that you could be woken up in the middle of the night and ask a question and went, "What? What are you talking about? Go back to sleep. You're not making any sense." You in a dead sleep could be able to say, "You who are supposedly awake aren't making any sense. Go to sleep." They're overplaying their hand. And the culture is starting to change. We'll give you that here in a second.

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."
