Flashback to When Ben Affleck Lost It While Debating Radical Islam

Remember when actor Ben Affleck debated the dangers of radicalized Islam with Sam Harris on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher”? Affleck infamously melted down while debating whether or not the Muslim religion can be criticized.

On today’s show, Glenn and Stu revisited this clip as part of a discussion about liberals’ resistance to discussing ideas in spite of their claim that they value free speech. Glenn pointed out that Affleck not only denied the open discussion of ideas and mocked the First Amendment, but also rewrote the Declaration of Independence while he was at it.

“We are endowed by our Cre- … forefathers with unalienable rights,” Affleck misquoted, seemingly starting to say “Creator” and then switching to “forefathers” as the origin of our basic rights as people.

GLENN: Sam Harris, Bill Maher, trying to have a conversation with Ben Affleck about radical Islam. Listen to this.

VOICE: Every criticism of the doctrine of Islam gets conflated with bigotry towards Muslims as people.

VOICE: Right.

VOICE: That is intellectually ridiculous.

VOICE: So hold on, are you the person who understands the officially codified (?) are you the interpreter of that?

VOICE: I'm actually well-educated on that topic.

VOICE: I'm asking you. So you're saying that Islamophobia is not a real thing. That if you're critical of something --

VOICE: Well, it's not a real thing when we do it.

VOICE: It really isn't.

VOICE: I'm not denying that certain people are bigoted (?)

VOICE: Right. That's big of you.

VOICE: Why are you so hostile about this?

VOICE: It's gross. It's racist.

VOICE: But it's so not. It's like saying you're a shifty Jew.

VOICE: You're not (?)

VOICE: Believe in liberal principles. Like freedom of speech. We're endowed (?) all men are created equal.

GLENN: Stop. Stop. Do you notice what he's doing here? He's mocking the principle of freedom of speech. And he also changed in sentence. Oh, yeah, we're all endowed by our -- by our Founders with certain inalienable rights.

GLENN’S THEORY: This is why Hunter Biden allegedly abandoned his laptop

We don't yet fully know why or how Hunter Biden's laptop allegedly was abandoned at a computer repair store. But, Glenn has a theory: did Hunter Biden purposely leave his computer — which contains countless materials harmful to his dad's campaign — to make it all stop? Hunter Biden has a troubled past — he has a history of alcohol and drug abuse, and it seems like Joe Biden has used his son for years to enrich the Biden family. So, Glenn thinks, maybe Hunter knew what he was doing…maybe it was a "self-sabotaging" cry for help. It's just a theory, but Glenn thinks it's a theory worth pursuing...

Former Obama admin. Secretary says we need a 'truth commission' to 'erase Trump's lies'

The far-left gets scarier each day. Now, former Obama administration Secretary of Labor, Robert Reich, is advocating for the establishment of a "Truth and Reconciliation Commission" once President Trump leaves office. He tweeted that the commission would "erase Trump's lies, comfort those who have been harmed by his hatefulness, and name every official, politician, executive, and media mogul whose greed and cowardice enabled this catastrophe." Glenn describes how similar models have been used in places like Serbia and Rwanda, and it never ends well for the minority party. In fact, Glenn says, an idea like this one can be used to further surveil and control the citizens who disagree.

How our 'free' press is censoring the truth like NEVER BEFORE

The New York Post released last week a report that COULD put an end to the Joe Biden campaign. It's too bad the NY Post is unable to share the story — which all centers on information found on the alleged Hunter Biden laptop mysteriously left at a computer repair store — with the world on social media. But the publication has been LOCKED from sharing stories on Twitter for over four days now. And it's not just the Post. Glenn describes how MSNBC's Chuck Todd blatantly disregarded fact during an interview with Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, how the Washington Post failed to correct the same claims, and how leaders at Facebook have direct ties to Joe Biden. Our "free" press continues to censor the truth and it becomes more and more frightening each day.
