Carly Fiorina: It’s 'Men’s Turn to Stand up' Against Sexual Harassment

Carly Fiorina is tired of the excuses we make for sexual misconduct, and in a recent Medium post, she called on all decent men to hold abusers accountable. As a society, we all need to stop overlooking sexual harassment in the workplace and make real progress – and we can’t trust politicians to fix these problems for us.

“Democrats would have us believe that all women are victims and only some sweeping government programs can solve this problem. Republicans would have us believe there is no problem at all,” Fiorina wrote. “Both parties are wrong and neither has any room to lecture anyone else on behavior or to propose solutions.”

Are you sick of hearing story after story about powerful men who used their position to abuse women? You might find catharsis in Fiorina’s chat with Glenn on today’s show. Listen to the full interview (above) for more.

GLENN: I want to bring in a woman who I really admire. And I'd admire her even if she were a man. I just think she is one of the bravest people that I have met, and forthright. And has just a good head on her shoulders and can think clearly.

Carly Fiorina who, of course, ran for president of the United States. And I hope she does again. Welcome to the program, Carly. Carly.

CARLY: So good to be with you, Glenn. It's good to be talking with you again, my friend. It's been too long.

GLENN: It has been too long.

So, Carly, I read your post in Medium, and I thought it was really, really good. And you talked about how you're tired of the media class opining on this. Politicians and Hollywood and everybody else.

You said a man who demeans, harasses, or abuses a woman has made a choice. It's a personal choice about how to behave. Another man who suspects, who knows, and fears and looks away is also making a choice. It's now time for a man to choose.

Are you going to laugh and look the other way? Are you going to josh that boys will be boys, with a wink and a nod and a choice word here or there? Or will you make it clear that while you love women, you actually don't think that they're capable about whatever you care about most? Are you going to keep quiet when you should speak up?

You said that all men know. And I have to tell you -- and I might just be the most naive man in the world. And my wife says this to me all the time, I don't think most men are like this.

CARLY: Oh, they're not. And I also said that in the post: Most men, the vast majority of men are decent, respectful, and honorable. And many, many, many, many men have lifted women up and helped them. I have been helped by many men in the course of my life. Most men are good men.

But enough men aren't. And, you know, it's interesting. I was listening to your opening comments. And I agree with everything you said.

And the thing that we need to understand about harassment and abuse and disrespect and assault, groping, all these things, it's not an abuse of power.

GLENN: Yeah.

CARLY: And it's why -- it's why, by the way, you see occasions of women abusing their power. You know, we have too many instances of female teachers abusing their power with underage boys.

For example, most of this is about men because men hold most of the power in the world still. But fundamentally, it's about an abuse of power.

And if I have to say it, I have to agree with your wife. I mean, it's hard for me to believe that you've never witnessed this. But I'll take you at your word. But it goes on all --

GLENN: You know, I have to tell you this, I worked at a radio station once. Not that I recall, I have not witnessed this. I worked at a radio station that was run by a woman, and she had hired a -- a whole team of salespeople. And I have witnessed it the other way. I have witnessed that it was kind of a known thing that, you know, you use your beauty. You use your talents. Not in a -- you know, not in a go have sex with people sort of way. But you go use your women wiles and charm the pants off of people. Not literally.

And so I've seen it that way. I have not seen it the other way, at least institutionalized.

CARLY: Yeah. Well, look, let's be honest, it helps to be attractive, whether you're a man or a woman.

GLENN: Right.

CARLY: It helps to be charming, whether you're a man or a woman. I find it interesting that when it's a woman, it's about being wily. But when it's a man, it's just about being effective.

I'm not sure this is ever institutionalized. I do think it's covered up. And I think sometimes we -- we get so used to -- I mean, look, there is no question that whether it was Roger Ailes, Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer, if you dig into these stories, what you'd find out is that everybody knew. They may not have known the particulars. But they knew the generalities. They knew the generalities.

GLENN: So here's a good example. Roger Ailes, it did not surprise me. I didn't know. But it didn't surprise me. Being around Roger Ailes enough, you were like, you know, I could see that.

CARLY: People suspected it. People understood what the culture was. And I'm not saying that -- the thing that I would say about these allegations is I take them seriously. And, frankly, I believe them. When you have multiple instances of people coming forward and telling the same story, when you have instances in which people shared what had happened to them contemporaneously, when you have other witnesses around saying, well, yeah, you know, now that it's out, I'm really not surprised.

Now, I happen to personally know Harvey Weinstein and knew Roger Ailes. And so neither one of those stories surprised me one little bit.

But I do think sometimes we get kind of used to this sort of joking, joshing stuff in a way that under-- it indicates something deeper. Let me give you an example, Glenn. Because you and I met when I was running for president, really.

GLENN: Yes.

CARLY: When I was on a presidential debate stage -- now, let's bear in mind that I think there have been four women that have run for president in the United States of America.

There aren't many men who have run for president, and I was on a presidential debate stage. And in the middle of that debate, I was telling the story of how I had come up as a secretary. In the middle of that debate, a radio show host who is very well-known and who shall remain nameless. Because my point here is to make an example. Tweeted out that I had just played the vagina card. Wow. Wow. Wow.

Male politicians pay their stories all the time. He got a little bit of pushback. And so he then went on to say, oh, I really like vaginas. Ask my wife. And the silence was deafening.

Now, here's a guy who think it's okay to reduce me -- I think most people agreed, I was pretty qualified and pretty articulate. Here's a guy who thinks it's okay to just reduce me to literally -- pardon my -- the directness of my language here. But this is the language he used. He thought it was just okay to reduce me to my genitalia.

And apparently, most everybody else did also.

And so that -- that creates an environment where it's okay to be disrespectful. Where it's okay to be disregarding.

And I think we need a mindset shift, as I tried to say in that column. Men and women, particularly men, because men still have more authority and power than women, to say, you know what, we need women to fulfill their potential. We need women to be full participants. Because we're all better off.

GLENN: You know, this is one of the things.

CARLY: Man or woman has that chance.

GLENN: This is one of the things that has been crossing my mind for a long time. And that is, we keep trying to say, it's my way or the highway. No matter what the difference is, women, men, Republicans, Democrats, conservative, liberal, we -- we need each other. We need each other.

CARLY: That's right.

GLENN: And we're not understanding that. We're not coming together and saying, you put your best stuff on the table, I'll put my best stuff on the table, and let's see what we can do together.

That's the way we should be, but we're not headed in that direction.

CARLY: Well, that's right. And I think unfortunately is a failure of leadership in many cases. You know, what is a leader? A leader is somebody who understands that collaboration is critical. A leader is somebody who understands that character counts. A leader is someone who sees possibilities, particularly in other people. A leader is somebody who believes that every life is filled with potential and that we're all better off when each of us have the opportunity to fulfill our potential.

And, you know, I do think that in this nation, serenity rests with the citizen. It's one of the unique qualities of our nation. Serenity rests with the citizen in this country. And so I think each of us, regardless of our position -- and position never defines leadership. An individual defines leadership. Regardless of our position, I think each of us as Americans, as citizens need to lead more. Need to step up and be leaders. And quit waiting for somebody else to do it for us, particularly our politicians. Quit waiting for people in positions of power and authority to lead for us, because too often, they don't.

GLENN: Let me -- let me --

CARLY: And in this regard, we can make a difference in our workplaces and in our lives.

GLENN: Let me take you one more place: I'm concerned that we are just -- everybody -- I mean, I used Garrison Keillor here a little while ago as an example of this.

If what Garrison Keillor said happened, this is craziness. He said that he just patted a woman on the back. They were friends, blah, blah, blah, she later felt uncomfortable. You know, that's not sexual harassment. If that happened the way he said it did. But we're just -- we're painting everyone with the same brush.

And at the same time we're doing that -- and I think in many cases, it's a good thing. At the same time, we're doing that. We are not holding the people in Washington, Donald Trump, Roy Moore, Franken, and who is the other one? John Conyers. They're -- they're not out immediately. NBC hears something about Matt Lauer, he's out. These guys, they're not out.

If they don't get out, if we -- if we have credible witnesses and they don't get out, aren't we just going to send a message that you can absolutely do anything probably up to and including killing someone and we don't care?

CARLY: Well, you said a couple things there. First of all, I agree with you that we can overreact and do stupid things. And then, of course, it diminishes the real problems that exist.

GLENN: Correct.

CARLY: So, for example, when the Obama administration overreacted to sexual assault on campus and basically said any woman that accuses a guy is going to be given the benefit of the doubt, even when the case doesn't hold water. I mean, that's -- had a terrible impact on young men's lives in some cases.

GLENN: Yes.

CARLY: So, yes, we can overreact. And, yes, we are in danger of being willing to live with a double standard.

Look, the politicians are so hypocritical here of both parties. They don't have a leg to stand on. If you look at the processes that Congress has put in place, Congress always grants itself an exception.

GLENN: Yes.

CARLY: Whether it's living with the health care rules they pass, or whether it's sexual assault, they always grant themselves an exception. They are hypocrites, in both parties. And part of what I believe we as citizens need to hold our politicians accountable for is, are you a person of character?

It's one of the reasons people are so sick of politics and politicians. It so rarely has anything to do with leadership or problem solving or collaboration or character.

GLENN: Carly Fiorina, always good to talk to you. Thank you so much.

CARLY: Great to talk with you. Thanks, Glenn. Have a great day.

GLENN: Buh-bye. Carly Fiorina. Businesswoman. Wife. Mom. Grandmother.

Anyone paying attention can see that President Biden is in dire straights come 2024, regardless of who his opponent may be. His administration has been workshopping several ideas to try and craft just the right message. One that will cut through all the noise (failures) and put him on a more solid footing should he go head-to-head in a rematch with the former President.

Biden called in the big guns and he wasn't afraid to call in a few favors either. He drew on his stint as VP and called Anita Dunn out of the bullpen and tapped the Center for American Progress Action Fund to try and help pull this one out. After an exhaustive six-month-long study into how President Trump was able to summon the magic of MAGA — they finally feel they have the winning message.

Dunn has gotten sloppy, however, since her days in the Obama administration. We obtained her contemporaneous notes and emails showing how they coined the term "ultra-MAGA," trying to get a little "extra pop" to his rhetoric. The leaked emails also show the evolution of the messaging over that same six-month period.


[The preceding Memo was a parody written by MRA writers Josh Jennings and Jon Boldt – not the Biden administration.]

Almost every week, new incriminating evidence is mined from Hunter’s wild laptop. And the proof is mounting that President Joe Biden is lying about his knowledge of his family’s crooked deal-making. Everyone knows Hunter Biden is a seriously degenerate guy. Anyone who has handled his infamous laptop needs a tetanus shot.

The salacious stuff on the laptop is sad and pathetic for sure, but that stuff is NOT what is most relevant to the United States. Glenn Beck exposes how the laptop is REALLY about Joe Biden, his abuse of power as vice president, and his ongoing denials now as president.

Now that the 2020 election has passed and their man is in office, the mainstream media have suddenly decided to admit Hunter’s laptop is not Russian disinformation after all. No one has done more research into the Biden family corruption than journalist and best-selling author Peter Schweizer. He has researched the depths of Hunter’s laptop and found more than racy photos. “These aren’t HUNTER’S business deals,” Peter says, “they benefit the WHOLE family.” And he has the emails to prove it.

But the mainstream media still insist President Biden is as pure as his thinning white hair in all of this. As Glenn reveals tonight, he is not. But will anyone in the Biden family see jail time? Americans are fed up with two sets of rules – one for regular citizens and one for the ruling elites.

Intelligent people know that wokerness plagues society and must be ridiculed and eradicated from conversations. But what happens when people lose their jobs for calling out the absurdity of woke ideology? What happens when corporations and media sources weaponize wokeness?

Here are five videos that will help us better understand a few of the many issues that wokeness inflicts on society and how we can stand against it.

Bye bye, Target. You crossed the line!

In this clip, BlazeTV host Allie Stuckey of "Relatable" explains how Target recently announced the sale of chest binders and "packing underwear" for women. She expresses how children can be negatively impacted by the sale of confusing clothing items for people suffering from gender dysphoria and the importance of loving the body God gave us.

Today, Allie notices that Target's stock experienced a 35-year record drop. Apparel was named as one of the two underperforming departments. Was pushback from critics of gender-affirming apparel the cause? It is hard to tell, but Allie encourages her audience to continue speaking out when corporations cross the line by making harmful products available for sale to the public.

Wokeness can get you fired

In this clip, Stu Burguiere covers a story about a man who challenged Black Lives Matter using nothing but data and was fired.

Here's the story: "I had been at Thomson Reuters for over six years—most recently, leading a team of data scientists applying new machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms to our legal, tax and news data. We advised any number of divisions inside the company, including Westlaw, an online legal research service used by most every law firm in the country, and the newsroom, which reaches an audience of one billion every day around the globe. I briefed the Chief Technology Officer regularly. My total annual compensation package exceeded $350,000." Read more

Coca-Cola circumvents Constitution with TERRIFYING mandates on diversity

Glenn Beck loves Coca-Cola. So much so, in fact, that he refuses to drink Pepsi if Coke isn't available. But ... he says the time has come for him to give up his favorite soda. Why? Because Coca-Cola just announced some terrifying new company policies on diversity and equity. It sent out notices to all partnered law firms, demanding a required percentage of diverse attorneys on any legal team working for the corporation. The notice says all legal teams also must report these numbers quarterly and they will lose Coca-Cola's business if they do not comply.

"Equity is not the same thing as equality," Glenn said, adding that equality means we all have an equal chance, while equality means we all have the same outcome.

Glenn explains how mandates like this could affect everybody — even the guy working on the factory line or the truck driver delivering the drinks. Glenn also explains how Coke's new move is nothing less than a circumvention of the Constitution, and he predicts more companies (especially those in support of the Great Reset) will follow with similar policies, too.

Coca-Cola takes a 'pause' on woke initiatives after after pressure from the Right

Glenn followed up on a story about Coca-Cola becoming the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appeared to shift directions.

Calvin Klein's gender blender ruins sex and Mothers' Day

Chad Prather reflected back to the Great Depression era of enticing photographic entertainment, otherwise known as the callow and deprived years of his youth, when a Calvin Klein pictorial of old would have represented something exciting, something to, say, think about at the end of the day. Had he run across this present weird concept at that age, he would have either been disgusted on sight … or possibly really disgusted when his dumb a** put two and two together the next day. Anyway, his point is: Has the whole world gone crazy? Do we really need this? At this inclusive embracing point in our recent history, what in the world makes Calvin Klein feel the need to be the standard-bearer for a lifestyle screamed largely into existence by a very vocal minority?

Former Disney artist SPEAKS OUT: ‘It’s time to do something’

A former Disney artist, who wishes to remain anonymous, joins Glenn to describe WHY he recently took action against his former employer: ‘I'm tired of watching my country go down the drain. And it's time to do something.’ Today’s woke Disney is not what Walt once imagined, he says, and his recent video release — "It’s A Woke World After All" — exposes Disney’s large stray from its roots ...

Rolling Stone magazine on Sunday published an article that argued in no uncertain terms that the suspect who grotesquely took the lives of ten people in Buffalo, New York, last weekend was a "mainstream Republican."

Like so many in the corporate media, the article's author Talia Lavin — who in 2018 resigned from the New Yorker after falsely accusing a combat-wounded veteran and ICE agent of having a Nazi tattoo — has painted the Buffalo killer as a right-wing, white supremacist, Tucker Carlson-worshipping conservative who is "gripped by a racist delusion."

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck revealed what the killer actually wrote in his alleged "manifesto," which proves he was far from a freedom-loving constitutionalist, and explained why blatantly ignoring his words will only make the problem worse.

"The corporate media has, from the very get-go, tried to associate [the killer] with the Republicans, to say that he's a conservative, to say that he got all of his training from Tucker Carlson," Glenn began. "But you know it's weird, in the 180-page document authored by the shooter, he doesn't mention Tucker Carlson — not even once. Not at all. There is one mention of Fox News, and it's an infographic showing the top Fox News host, such as Maria Bartiromo and Greg Gutfeld, as being Jewish. He also says Rupert Murdoch is a Christian Zionist who may have Jewish ancestry though it's never been publicly admitted," he continued.

"Oh, another thing. Ben Shapiro is mentioned multiple times, including as an example as the 'rat of the Jewish people.' So gosh, that doesn't sound conservative to me, doesn't sound Republican, doesn't sound like he's learned anything from anybody that is on the right. Moreover, he has described himself as an ethno-nationalist and eco-fascist national socialist. He loathes libertarianism and conservatism in particular."

Watch the video clip below to hear more of the criminal's own words, which prove he was no right-winger and certainly NOT a "mainstream Republican."
