Dallas Cowboys ‘Came Together’ to Be an Example for America

What happened?

The Dallas Cowboys football team knelt as one before the traditional national anthem on Monday night, with the players, owner Jerry Jones and coach Jason Garrett all kneeling together. Their conciliatory version of Colin Kaepernick’s protest involved first taking a knee in solidarity with those affected by police violence, then standing and linking arms to pay respect during the national anthem.

President Donald Trump, who fueled tension over the weekend with a series of threatening remarks about players who protest by sitting or kneeling during the anthem, seemed OK with the Dallas Cowboys’ version. He tweeted, ““But while Dallas dropped to its knees as a team, they all stood up for our National Anthem. Big progress being made-we all love our country!”

Glenn’s take:

“They all stood up for what they believed in, they included prayer and they did it respectfully,” Glenn commended the Dallas Cowboys on radio Wednesday.

In a time when America is suffering from a “dearth of leadership,” political activism that ends without violence and lets people with seemingly opposing viewpoints feel equally respected is a win.

GLENN: Well, let's give credit to America's team for showing the rest of the NFL the path forward. Last night, just before Monday Night Football game against the Cardinals, the Dallas Cowboys walked out on the center field, knelt in prayer, and then stood up and respectfully listened to the national anthem.

What the Dallas Cowboys did last night is a microcosm for the entire country and what we should all be doing. As a team, they came together. They all stood up for what they believed in. They included prayer. And they did it respectfully. They took a knee, and they honored the national anthem, and they even threw in a prayer. You can disagree with what they're protesting, but you can't say a word about how they did it because it was not disrespectful in any way.

You know, when we're looking to the Dallas Cowboys for leadership, there is a dearth of leadership in this country. Can you think of any other political activism in this day and age that has ended with nonviolence and both sides feeling respected? Because I can't. It doesn't happen anymore.

Once again, Texas comes riding in to make us feel good, to show us something positive, to show us how we should be behaving.

I am a little surprised that it came from professional sports. However, I shouldn't be. Our professional athletes historically have just transcended be sure professions. It was in 1936, Jesse Owens won four gold medals showing the master race that they weren't all that masterful, you know what I mean? 1980, the US hockey team broke the myth of the Soviets being invincible, and they did it with style and they did it with class.

In 2017, the Cowboys showed us that respecting one another is still possible, and they provided a path forward for the NFL.

And what's more, our children's heroes, if they still look at these guys as heroes, demonstrated how a man behaves.

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.

'HARMFUL CONTENT': How King Biden Is KILLING the Constitution

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.

Why it’s time for Dr. Fauci to STOP DOING INTERVIEWS!

Dr. Fauci was at it again over the weekend, this time declaring during a CBS News interview that it's 'too soon to tell' if Americans can safely gather with family this Christmas season. But the main issue isn't necessarily Fauci's crazy statement, Stu explains to Glenn. Rather, it's Fauci doing TV interviews at all. The left will support anything he says and the right will call him an idiot no matter what. He no longer has the ability to sway minds, so why is he on television more than Glenn is?!

If the Deep State Can Ruin Gen. Flynn's Life, It Can Ruin Yours | Ep 119

Donald Trump famously tweeted, "They're not after me, they're after you. I'm just in the way." General Michael Flynn was also in the way, apparently, because the deep state has definitely gone after him, on every front. He's been hounded by the Department of Justice, the FBI, the Democrat Party, and the media. But the hounding didn't stop there. Chase Bank canceled accounts because he was "a reputational risk." Meanwhile, the real problems of our country go unchecked. Glenn and Gen. Flynn talk about all of it and more: The immigration crisis in Del Rio, the opioid crisis, the impact of critical race theory, the threat of radical Islamism, the corruption of the media, the persecution of Brett Kavanaugh, the incompetence of Biden, the tragedy of Afghanistan, the hypocrisy of Gen. Milley. And Russia. It's is all we heard for the last six years. But as details emerge, we see the truth. Gen. Flynn is very clear: "I didn't lie to the FBI." And yet, Gen. Flynn still believes in the American people to save the country.
