HYPOCRISY: Bumble app bans gun pics to promote 'non-violence' but partners with baby-killers

One of the hallmarks of progressivism is making policy not based on any principles, but on popularity. When the progressive gods deem something to be threatening, even if it’s a Constitutional right, then it’s their duty to fix that thing. And it’s the duty of all other progressives to fall in line or face the same abuse and boycotts usually reserved for conservatives.

So, if you’re a darling progressive-millennial-tech company like the dating app, Bumble, when the progressive gods declare, “guns bad,” you leap into action to ban images of firearms among your 30 million users. Remember, Bumble did not hold the position that all gun images are bad prior to the Parkland school shooting.

That’s what I mean about progressive popularity over principles. Bumble, like a bunch of other gutless companies, sprinted to the “all guns bad” position simply to keep up the appearance of being socially conscious. In reality, they just want to stay off the progressive blacklist, save face at cocktail parties, and avoid any controversy that might harm their bottom line.

Bumble said it just didn’t want to take a political stand. Oh, now I get it. That explains why they recently announced a partnership with the entirely non-political organization called Planned Parenthood.

Bumbling is kind of a perfect description here.

On certain days, Bumble users who “swipe right” on a potential match will trigger a Bumble donation to Planned Parenthood. Users will also have an opportunity to donate money themselves. Because, as you know, Planned Parenthood is such a cash-strapped organization, they need all the help they can get to keep funding those female health services. And the 300,000-plus annual baby murders, I mean, those aren’t cheap.

So, Bumble bans members from posting personal photos with firearms because that definitely promotes death and violence. And then they partner with an organization that kills unborn babies as an industry. Perfectly logical. Bumbling is kind of a perfect description here.

Look, Bumble is a private company so it can ban all the gun photos it wants and align with whatever sick organization it pleases. But it’s probably not the best customer relations move to insult the intelligence of your users like this. Then again, maybe most Bumble users won’t notice the double standard. This is something that’s lost on far too many Americans --- if you’re not anchored by principles, progressive popularity will lead you down a dark and dangerous path.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
