Shouldn't TIME's Person of the Year Be a Person?

TIME magazine announced today that its “Person of the Year” issue will honor the “silence breakers,” women and men who spoke out about sexual harassment and assault to spark a movement.

When actress Ashley Judd and other women went on the record to share their stories about film mogul Harvey Weinstein, their accounts of sexual harassment and assault started an avalanche of similar allegations against powerful men in multiple industries.

On today’s show, Glenn talked about TIME’s pick and noted that there are “many lessons” we can all learn from these “silence breakers.”

GLENN: TIME Magazine has just announced their person of the year. The person of the year. Silence breakers. Yeah, I know. It's a new boy's band. The Silence Breakers. No. The silence breakers are the men and women who have finally come forward to talk about the sexual misconduct or assault they experienced at the hands of powerful people.

Now, I happen to agree that this is probably the biggest thing that has happened this year. This is going to -- this really makes an impact. But it's not a person.

It's people of the year. It's an event of the year. That's a movement of the year. That's not a person of the year. But that's a feud that I've been having with TIME for quite some time. And they don't seem to care.

Speaking up about assaults by Harvey Weinstein and others like him, TIME claims these victims have been humbled and humanized. And have humbled and humanized Hollywood. They write, movie stars are supposedly nothing like you and me. They're svelte, glamorous, self-possessed. They wear dresses we can't afford and live in houses we can only dream of, and yet it turns out that in the most painful and personal ways, movie stars are more like you and me than we'll ever know.

No, I don't think this is -- do you think this has personalized them? I don't -- no. Uh-uh. Not one story has happened where I thought, you know what, they're just like me.

Well, that's because you're a white guy. Yeah, and I can't relate to all of the white guy perpetrators. This is not -- this is not who we are.

I think it's -- I think it's an epidemic proportions wherever there is real power. There is real power in Hollywood. There is real power in DC. There is real power in the financial sectors.

We're just getting started here. It is a fitting homage by -- by TIME, given the past three months of non-stop allegations, but I have a problem with it. Juanita Broaddrick and Paula Jones aren't mentioned by name in TIME's article. So does this mean that you're only a silence breaker if you only claim sexual assault in the past few months? Aren't these silence breakers? Juanita Broaddrick, weren't they the pioneers that did the hard thing and took it in the face and took the lashes to set the stage for these silence breakers?

Apparently not. Women have been speaking out for years against powerful people and those who abused them. It's only now that we're actually listening to them and not saying, well, look at the way she was dressed.

There are many lessons to be learned from the silence breakers. You're not alone. Even movie stars experience ugly parts of life. Don't be afraid to speak out.

If you experience assault of any kind, there's no shame of going to the police immediately. It's the most powerful thing you can do. And as we've seen recently, the court of public opinion is a very dangerous place. An allegation doesn't immediately make you guilty, from either direction. So let's continue to hold up due process and ensure that justice grows and prevails for everyone.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."
