2nd Amendment: Good Enough for Kim Kardashian, But Not You

The day after the latest Orlando shooting, the gun control folks came out of the woodwork --- as expected. In an unexpected twist, Kim Kardashian is now gun expert leading the charge. The reality star, whose security team is armed to the hilt, recently penned a letter calling for stricter gun control.

"Here is a woman that is surrounded by 24-hour-a-day armed protection. Why? Because she's a target. She is a target as a celebrity. So what do you do to protect yourself? You put armed people around you. You know what, I don't have the luxury of surrounding myself by armed people," Mike Broomhead said filling in for Glenn on radio Wednesday.

It's an entirely hypocritical premise.

"Get rid of your armed guards then if you don't think people should have guns. She thinks it's ridiculous that she would go out unprotected. It really is absolutely a joke.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

MIKE: Before we close out the hour though, Kim Kardashian -- yesterday, day before yesterday, we talked about the Orlando shooting. Then the day after the Orlando shooting, when it came out that it wasn't a terrorist attack, that it was a disgruntled employee, a former member of the military, had been arrested on some misdemeanor charges, and had had a fistfight with a coworker, was fired from his job. Returned to his old place of business. Shot five people. Dead. Then turned the gun on himself.

And, of course, what happened? The gun control people came out of the woodwork like they always do. Well, here you go. Kim Kardashian. Despite admitting that her entire security team is armed, reality television personality Kim Kardashian called for stricter gun control.

So here's the comment that I loved yesterday. I told you there is nothing more insulting than saying that people that are defenders of the Second Amendment care more about guns than they do people, leave it to Kim Kardashian. It's more important to protect the Second Amendment than to protect our own children.

No. The Second Amendment protects them too.

Kardashian went on to explain that better gun control looks like this to her: I believe that we should restrict access to firearms for people with mental illness.

Always happens already.

Anyone previously convicted of a misdemeanor.

So if you're convicted of trespassing, they should take your gun away? I'm asking.

If you get convicted of a misdemeanor, the government should be able to take your firearm? Those who have been subject to a temporary restraining order and those at a higher risk of committing gun violence.

There are already laws that do that. We have laws against felons possessing guns. How many times have murders been carried out by a felon with a handgun or a rifle? How many?

Well, shocking that the very same people that don't care about the laws against murder, don't care about the laws against carrying a gun either. It's a ludicrous premise. But the fact that Kim Kardashian pens the letter and anyone pays attention to it shows you that this is about popularity, not about policy, and not about what makes common sense.

Anybody like myself that says I am an adamant defender of the Second Amendment, you are labeled some kind of an extremist. Well, there's your extremist. Here is a woman that is surrounded by 24-hour a day armed protection. Why? Because she's a target. She is a target, as a celebrity.

So what do you do to protect yourself? You put armed people around you. You know what, I don't have the luxury of surrounding myself by armed people. It's -- it's such a hypocritical premise, that someone wouldn't say to her, get rid of your armed guards then. If you don't people should have guns, she thinks it's ridiculous that she would go out unprotected. It's absolutely -- it really is absolutely a joke.

The far Left has intensified its push toward Marxism for months now, but it's more than clever catchphrases or slogans. Their radical rhetoric and policies have violent consequences.

Calls to defund the police have led to officers being ambushed and killed. Crime is spiking in record amounts all over the country. Critical race theory has the government, corporations, and now schools brainwashing Americans to believe the entire system is systemically racist. And it's paved the way for actual violence in the streets from groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa.

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck exposes their endgame: tearing the entire system down. Marxists did this in the Soviet Union and China, among other places. Millions died, and the first to feel the brunt were always the landowners and farmers. The most recent example of this is happening in South Africa, where Glenn reveals terrifying on-the-ground interviews.

As American farmers now also face unprecedented racial discrimination by our federal government, award-winning South African journalist Lara Logan warns of what could happen if the seeds of Marxism aren't uprooted now.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."
