Liberal Millennial Pens Powerful Message to Glenn Beck After CNN Interview

In case you missed it

After an exhausting week of heated arguments over gun control and school safety, Glenn made a Sunday appearance on CNN to encourage Americans on both the left and right to stop “trying to just win and be right, [and start] listening to each other.”

Glenn explained that the interview was an opportunity to reach people who would “never listen to me because of our different team jersey.” People on both sides of the aisle are seeing that “gutter politics” are tearing our country apart. “We may not all see America exactly the same way, but we do want to live with a Bill of Rights. They understand that there is no future in being more devoted to the ‘party’s jersey’ than to the ‘Constitutional team,'” said Glenn on today’s show.

Catch up on Glenn’s CNN interview here:

After viewing the interview on CNN, a young man named Maxwell sent a surprising letter to Glenn.

Here’s what he wrote:

Mr. Beck,

I never thought I would be writing to you. Especially not to thank you for anything, but here I am. As a 23-year-old liberal who was pretty politically aware throughout middle and high school, you once represented one of the biggest problems our country had to me.

But after your interview on CNN, I felt something I haven’t felt in a long time. Hope. True, honest to god, hope for the future of this country. Not the kind of partisan hope that “my team” wins, but the kind of hope that we an all figure out that we’re all on the same team. The America team.

I had given up, Mr. Beck. American politics were beyond saving, in my eyes. But if Glenn freaking Beck, of all people, can come out and extend an olive branch to try and start building a bridge between the two Americas, then I know I shouldn’t give up. Please, don’t stop trying to fix this, you’re going to take flack from both sides. The right will call you a traitor and the left will call you a liar. But you’ll have my support, and you’ll have the support of everyone else who’s fed up with the constant war of outrage and scandal.

Thank you,

Maxwell

“Maxwell, thank you,” said Glenn in return. “Your letter actually really gives me hope. We have to resist the soundbite, knee-jerk reaction world and actually stand for principles.”

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

How the Left Handed Blacks 'Smallpox in a Blanket' | Jason Whitlock | Ep 94

Over the last three decades, veteran sports journalist Jason Whitlock has worked his way up from local newsrooms to major networks at Fox Sports and ESPN. He's become one of the most respected — and one of the most hated — sports journalists in the country, especially for his opinions on race. In this episode, Jason and Glenn discuss how the Left uses sports to divide America, Big Tech, China, Nike's hypocrisy, how LBJ's policies ruined black America, and why President Obama disappointed him. He tells Glenn how a new generation of woke activists have tried to undo his accomplishments and reacts to Deadspin calling him "the racist right's unwitting attack dog." While his habit of "wrongspeak" has landed him in trouble throughout his career, Jason says he just loves Jesus, America, and football — in that order.

In farewell address, President Trump lists AMAZING accomplishments the left ignores

Joe Biden was sworn in as America's 46th president on Wednesday, but not without President Trump giving a farewell address from the White House first. Glenn and Stu play part of Trump's Tuesday night speech, during which he lists several amazing accomplishments achieved by his administration over the last four years. As Glenn and Stu remind us, many of his accomplishments the left will continue to ignore. So, this speech serves as a reminder that despite the media backlash and recent chaos, President Trump should be remembered as an effective and efficient leader.

Why Eric Weinstein Is Finally Talking to Glenn Beck | Ep 93

Eric Weinstein is not a conservative, but he talks to conservatives because he says, more often, they're the ones who let him speak his mind without branding him (a Jew) a Nazi. He tells Glenn why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast. In the aftermath of the U.S. Capitol riot and President Trump's second impeachment, Eric and Glenn probe the historical, economic, social, and even scientific reasons for the events of the last week. They also tackle some of the hardest questions our country faces: What do we do about a power-grabbing Big Tech, a dishonest media, Wokistan vs. MAGAstan, and the destruction of American culture? How do we restore civility between the Left and the Right? How do we save the UNITED States of America? In an honest conversation that will stretch your comfort zone, Glenn and Eric show us where to start.

A pre-Inauguration Day plea: You wield MUCH more power than you know

Glenn has spent years teaching YOU — his audience — about the power of Martin Luther King, Jr. After nearly a year of witnessing chaos and turmoil both in the streets and now at our Capitol, we're all frustrated. We're angry. And we want to fight back. But Glenn says now, more than ever, we must refuse to engage with the darkness. We must be a light in the world, instead. MLK is one of the most powerful leaders America has ever seen, and he led some of the most profound changes too. He did it all nonviolently. As we approach Inauguration Day, and as the left HOPES you engage in chaos, never forget that like MLK — you wield MUCH more power than you know.
