No More Apology Tours: President Trump Delivers Refreshing Speech on the Western Way of Life

Shortly after his election in 2008, Barack Obama set out on an apology tour decrying the sins of America's past and the era of American Exceptionalism appeared to be over. Friday on radio, Glenn and the guys talked about just how refreshing it was to hear President Trump step up to the plate and knock one out of the park for the western way of life and for freedom.

"We haven't heard that, you know, 'hey, we are worth standing up for.' This is a choice that people made and sacrificed to be able to have freedom. And here's Poland that has been crushed by the boots of thugs and under the gears of tanks for so long. Now they're free, and you're an example to the world of what people will do to shuck off those chains. It was really refreshing," Glenn said.

Many questions still remain about President Trump's trip to the G-20 Summit, but one thing is certain --- the apology tours are over.

Enjoy the complimentary clip or read the transcript for details.

GLENN: Did you see the president and his speech in Poland yesterday? It was so nice and refreshing to hear him actually speak about the western way of life in a positive way. Listen.

TRUMP: The same is true in Warsaw where street signs carry the words of George Washington and stand to one of the world's greatest heroes, Ronald Reagan.

[Applause]

And so I am here today not just to visit an old ally, but to hold it up as an example for others who seek freedom and who wish to summon the courage and will to defend our civilization.

PAT: Never would you have heard that kind of thing from Barack Obama.

GLENN: No. No.

PAT: Never.

GLENN: And it was -- I listen to this speech yesterday, and I thought it was an exceptional speech. It was just -- and the reason why it was so exceptional is we haven't heard this.

PAT: In so long.

GLENN: For so long.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: We haven't heard that, you know, hey, we are worth standing up for. This is a, you know, this is a choice that people made and sacrificed to be able to have freedom. And here's Poland that has, you know, been crushed by the boots of thugs and under the gears of tanks for so long. Now they're free, and you're an example to the world of what people will do to shuck off those chains. It was really refreshing. Really refreshing.

INSANITY: High schooler ARRESTED after not wearing mask at school tells her story

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

Jason Whitlock: Raiders coach fired by NFL as a ‘SIGNAL’ to others

Raiders Head Coach Jon Gruden was forced to resign (fired) by the NFL on Monday due to 'misogynistic' and 'homophobic' language found in several of his old, private emails. But Jason Whitlock, sports writer and host of 'Fearless' on BlazeTV, tells Glenn that Gruden's words never should have resulted in his job lost: 'We should have accepted his apology and kept it moving.' But instead, Whitlock says the NFL chose to use Gruden as a 'signal' for all other employees who may oppose the football organization's current, far-left political stances: 'Taking over sports, taking over the NFL, is crucial to the goals of the left and what they're trying to do.'

How an ‘orchestrated’ revolution is bringing America TO ITS KNEES

Victor Davis Hanson, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, joins Glenn to discuss his new book, 'The Dying Citizen.' He explains how America's hippies from the 1960s are the progressive elites running our institutions today and how their 'well orchestrated' moves have created a top-down revolution that's 'bringing us down to our knees.' So, what's the solution? Davis Hanson tells Glenn what we can do to push back against the far left today…

Who Is More Evil: Government or Facebook? | Robby Soave | Ep 120

The Left and Right agree: Social media companies like Facebook are abusing their power — whether through censorship or harmful, groupthink-creating algorithms. But is the solution really more censorship and regulation, like government fearmongers and leftist "whistleblowers" have insisted? Glenn sits down with the senior editor at Reason, Robby Soave, who has a much more refreshing solution laid out in his latest book, "Tech Panic: Why We Shouldn't Fear Facebook and the Future." Politicians have weaponized the fear we have about social media. So, maybe we should be looking at the positives. Glenn and Robby take a look at the (very familiar) history of tech panic and censorship, balance the consequences of changing Section 230, and expose the real threat to the future of free speech: Progressive tyranny entrenched in the old school media.
