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.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

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."
