You’ll Be Glad to Hear That ‘Gentlemen’ Still Exist – This Definition Is What Society Needs

Kind, humble, courageous, loving: These are some of the words that women used to describe a true “gentleman” after Glenn did a survey at TheBlaze.

“I asked the women to tell me what a ‘real man’ was,” Glenn explained. “Do you notice that every single one of them talked about humility?”

Do you agree with these definitions of a good man? Listen to the full clip (above) for more.

“The most important quality of being a man is integrity,” one respondent wrote.

“Someone who protects the helpless,” another added.

“A gentleman puts his family first and himself second,” a third described.

GLENN: So I was working on something about five weeks ago. And I asked the women who were on my staff on the radio and TV show, I asked them, please define a real man. A gentleman. What is that? Does that even exist anymore?

I had each of them write a couple of paragraphs. Listen to what they wrote.

When we describe as men as gentlemen or real men, I think of the following qualities, kind, honest, loyal, humble, selfless, and courageous. Strong characteristics and high expectations. They are -- they are -- they are difficult to ask of a person, but they're a quality that every man, woman, and child should strive for. Our society values these decencies because they restore faith in humankind and make our world a better place.

You know, I was really Sadat my friend's funeral this weekend. And I wondered what it was that really set him apart. And it was that he was kind and he was honest and he was loyal and he was humble and he was selfless.

He was a -- he was a man. News anchors, coaches, doctors, comedians, and producers who have appeared to be a gentleman or real men have disappointed our society for not living out the projected personas they portray in public life.

They harm. And the harm they cause their victims was made all the greater by the double lives they were living. The most important quality of being a man is integrity. Living out your core principles in both public and in private.

Another staff member wrote. A true gentleman is someone who opens the door for someone, someone who stops when he sees a person broken down on the side of the road, someone who jumps over his girlfriend during a shooting at a concert, someone who protects the helpless. Most importantly, he does these things without wanting recognition. A gentleman puts his family first and himself second. He understands there's a difference between a man and a woman, but doesn't look down on women. He treats them with respect and kindness. He's a God-fearing man who knows his weakness and surrounds himself with others to hold himself accountable for his shortcomings. He's humble and he values every human being, and he loves as God loves.

This one, no better time to catch up on the Bachelor than a lazy Friday night. I sat on my couch watching 29 women simultaneously throw themselves at the latest bachelor, Arie, in hopes of catching his eye. One of them gushed to the other, that he's the perfect man.

I sat there and thought, why? Is it because he rides a motorcycle? Is it because he apparently is a great kisser? Or is it because he buys his dates diamond necklaces?

The truth is that perfect men don't exist, but great ones, gentlemen do. And you're not going to find them on reality TV. Real men demonstrate the kind of selfless qualities seen in the savior who came before them. They have a genuine love for others, a deep humility, despite success. They show integrity with unwavering honesty, despite making mistakes. They're respectful with those with power, but they're more respectful to those without. When they mess up, they work hard to fix it.

These are the qualities I want in my future husband, just as these are the qualities I strive to develop in myself. The qualities I will teach my sons, but also my daughters. They are the non-gender -- they are the gender nonspecific qualities of a good person.

And they're getting harder to find. Maybe it's because our selfie culture teaches us to focus more on ourselves, rather than on others. Maybe it's because leadership is often more preoccupied with scores than solidarity. Or maybe it's because one of the top rated shows on TV is teaching us that perfect guys are the ones who simultaneously date you and your roommate.

Last one: There's no secret to being a good man or a gentleman. Every man can transform himself into that, simply by following the golden rule, do unto others what you would have them do to you.

A true gentleman makes every person they feel -- every person they meet feel important and respected. He is a person who raises others up, instead of tearing them down. He's not cruel or critical to people.

He's a leader, not by force, but by example. Men and women want to emulate a gentleman because he challenges them to be better versions of themselves. He stands up for principles, when it's hard and unpopular to do so. He's a leader. He's not swayed away from his morals by the majority of opinion. Most importantly, a gentleman is not without fault.

But he takes responsibility for his actions, especially in the cases where he is wrong. He's not afraid to admit failures, except consequences and try again. To be a gentle -- to be a gentleman is to be human. Because we all make mistakes. But the difference, a gentleman picks himself back up and constantly strives to be better for himself and the people around him.

I didn't ask the guys to write what a gentleman -- I asked the women to tell me what a real man was.

This is why Jordan Peterson is so popular. Who says this anymore?

What outlet talks about this anymore? What outlet?

What group insists on this anymore? Did you notice that every single one of them talked about humility? I would expect if I said, you know, what's a real man? Well, he's got courage.

But our society is not teaching humility. How could our society teach humility? How could it? We don't allow for failure anymore.

Failure is something that you don't have to go through. So if you're not going through failure, you don't know what it feels like to be truly humbled.

I -- I -- how do you know what's you and what's God, if you haven't failed?

Because I know I failed horribly and have continued to fail, just not on that grand of a scale. But I knew my failures came from me. And I knew what I had left had come from God.

Because I didn't have anything else left. I had nothing left. I didn't even have my name that I was given.

Nobody believed my word. I'm a better man because of that humbling. We're all upside down. I'm -- I don't think I'm alone. I don't think I'm alone in the, yeah, I don't think I'm going to fight that. No.

Because that really just leads to more and more anger. I -- I think I'm going to pick my battles a little more carefully. Because we're not going to be able to fix any of this. We can't fix this politically.

We have to fix ourselves. Our -- our representatives, you know why they're still there. They're still there because we want them there.

We're electing them. Look who we're -- look who we're electing. Look who we're giving a pass to say, it's okay to run. I think now is my time. I'm a Nazi, and I think now is my time.

I think there's a lot of people out there that think like me.

Holy cow. I hope to God not.

Because, boy, the Nazis sure didn't know how to be a man. Mike Pence was ridiculed -- was ridiculed for his stance on women, that he won't be left alone with a woman. He just thinks that it is a good safety tip. And remember how they -- oh, I won't go out for dinner with a woman unless my wife is with me.

Oh, my gosh. Oh, he can't have dinner without his wife. Yeah. Have you noticed what's happening in our society?

He's a pretty smart guy. Society doesn't want strong men. The culture doesn't. The culture doesn't.

The people do. So what do you say you pick a target and we set off to be truly great men, the men we were born to be, not the boys we've allowed ourselves to become?

Science did it again. It only took 270 million years, but this week, scientists finally solved the mystery that has kept the world up at night. We finally know where octopuses come from: outer space. That explains why they look like the aliens in just about every alien movie ever made.

RELATED: Changes in technology can be cause for concern, but THIS is amazing

It turns out octopuses were aliens that evolved on another planet. Scientists haven't determined which one yet, but they've definitely narrowed it down to one of the planets in one of the galaxies. Hundreds of millions of years ago (give or take a hundred), these evolved octopus aliens arrived on Earth in the form of cryopreserved eggs. Now, this part is just speculation, but it's possible their alien planet was on the verge of destruction, so Mom and Dad Octopus self-sacrificially placed Junior in one of these cryopreserved eggs and blasted him off the planet to save their kind.

This alien-octopus research, co-authored by a group of 33 scientists, was published in the Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology journal. I'm sure you keep that on your nightstand like I do.

Anyway, these scientists say octopuses evolved very rapidly over 270 million years. Which sounds slow, but in evolutionary terms, 270 million years is like light speed. And the only explanation for their breakneck evolution is that they're aliens. The report says, “The genome of the Octopus shows a staggering level of complexity with 33,000 protein-coding genes — more than is present in Homo sapiens."

Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

They mention that the octopus' large brain, sophisticated nervous system, camera-like eyes, flexible bodies and ability to change color and shape all point to its alien nature. Octopuses developed those capabilities rather suddenly in evolution, whereas we're still trying to figure out the TV remote.

These biological enhancements are so far ahead of regular evolution that the octopuses must have either time-traveled from the future, or “more realistically" according to scientists, crash-landed on earth in those cryopreserved egg thingies. The report says the eggs arrived here in “icy bolides." I had to look up what a “bolide" is, and turns out it's a fancy word for a meteor.

So, to recap: a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, an alien race of octopuses packed their sperm-bank samples in some meteors and shot them toward Earth. Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

President Trump's approval rating is rising, and Democrats — hilariously — can't seem to figure out what's going on. A few months ago Democrats enjoyed a sixteen point lead over Republicans, but now — according to CNN's recent national survey — that lead is down to just THREE points. National data from Reuters shows it as being even worse.

The Democratic advantage moving towards the halfway mark into 2018 shows that Republicans are only ONE point behind. The president's public approval rating is rising, and Democrats are nervously looking at each other like… “umm guys, what are we doing wrong here?"

I'm going to give Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi a little hint. We know that the Left has enjoyed a “special relationship" with the media, but they might want to have a sit down with their propaganda machine. The mainstream media is completely out of control, and Americans are sick of it. We're DONE with the media.

RELATED: The mainstream media wants you to believe Trump is waging war on immigrants — here's the truth

Look what has been going on just this week. The president called MS-13 gang members animals, but that's not the story the media jumped on. They thought it was more clickable to say that Trump was calling all immigrants animals instead. In the Middle East, the media rushed to vilify Israel instead of Hamas. They chose to defend a terror organization rather than one of our oldest allies.

Think about that. The media is so anti-Trump that they've chosen a violent street gang AND A GLOBAL TERROR ORGANIZATION as their torch-bearing heroes. Come on, Democrats. Are you seriously baffled why the American people are turning their backs on you?

Still not enough evidence? Here's the New York Times just yesterday. Charles Blow wrote a piece called "A Blue Wave of Moral Restoration" where he tried to make the case that the president and Republicans were the enemy, but — fear not — Democrat morality was here to save the day.

Here are some of these cases Blow tries to make for why Trump is unfit to be President:

No person who treats women the way Trump does and brags on tape about sexually assaulting them should be president.

Ok, fine. You can make that argument if you want to, but why weren't you making this same argument for Bill Clinton? Never mind, I actually know the reason. Because you were too busy trying to bury the Juanita Broaddrick story.

Let's move on:

No person who has demonstrated himself to be a pathological liar should be president.

Do the words, “You can keep your doctor" mean anything to the New York Times or Charles Blow? I might have saved the best for last:

No person enveloped by a cloud of corruption should be president.

I can only think of three words for a response to this: Hillary Frigging Clinton.

Try displaying a little consistency.

If the media really wants Donald Trump gone and the Democrats to take over, they might want to try displaying a little consistency. But hey, maybe that's just too much to ask.

How about starting with not glorifying terrorist organizations and murderous street gangs. Could we at least begin there?

If not… good luck in the midterms.

In the weeks following President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, the mainstream media was quick to criticize the president's pro-Israel stance and make dire predictions of violent backlash in the Middle East. Fast forward to this week's opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem and the simultaneous Palestinian “protests" in Gaza.

Predictably, the mainstream media chastised Israel for what they called “state-sanctioned terrorism" when the IDF stepped in to protect their country from so-called peaceful Palestinian protesters. Hamas leaders later admitted that at least 50 of the 62 Palestinians killed in the clashes were Hamas terrorists.

“In our post-modern media age, there is no truth and nobody even seems to be looking for it …. This is shamefully clear in the media especially this week with their coverage of the conflict between the border of Israel and the Gaza strip," said Glenn on today's show. He added, “The main media narrative this week is about how the IDF is just killing innocent protesters, while Hamas officials have confirmed on TV that 50 of the 62 people killed were working for Hamas."

The mainstream media views the Palestinians as the oppressed people who just want to share the land and peacefully coexist with the people of Israel. “They can't seem to comprehend that in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, only one side is actively trying to destroy the other," surmised Glenn.

Watch the video above to hear Glenn debunk the “peaceful Palestinian protest" fallacy.

Here are a few headlines regarding the protests in Israel: 'Global protests grow after Israeli killing of Palestinian demonstrators,' the Guardian. 'Israel kills dozens at Gaza Border,' the New York Times. 'Palestinians mourn dead in Gaza as protests continue,' CNN. 'Over 50 Palestinians in massive protest are killed by Israeli military, bloodiest day in Gaza since 2014 war,' ABC News. 'Gaza begins to bury its dead after deadliest day in years,' BBC.

In each, the spoken or unspoken subject of the sentence and villain of the story is Israel. Innocent Palestinians murdered by the cruel Israelis. This is the narrative that the mainstream media has promulgated. Few have mentioned that the majority of the “protestors" that died were members of Hamas, the militant (and highly anti-Semetic) Sunni-Islamist organization that has been labeled a Foreign Terrorist Organization by the U.S. State Department.

A senior Hamas official told reporters that 50 of the 59 people killed in Monday's protests were members of Hamas, and the remainder were “from the people." So…they were all Hamas.

As usual, mention of such membership has been left out of the mainstream media's anti-Israel, pro-Islam narrative.

As usual, mention of such membership has been left out of the mainstream media's anti-Israel, pro-Islam narrative. Maybe they think of Palestinians as underdogs and they love a good scrap. Well, they aren't underdogs. But their outburst have been glorified for so long that it's near impossible to disagree with that narrative.
