We'll Never Reach People Like Johnny Depp and His Ilk—But Here's Who We Can Reach

How can you reach across the aisle to people like Johnny Depp, who recently went on mic to suggestively discuss assassinating the president of the United States. You can't.

"Anybody who is calling for the assassination of the president is so far past reason that we're never going to get to them . . . you're never going to talk to them," Glenn said Friday on radio.

Using a football analogy (surprise!), Glenn described the 80 percent of the country we should be trying to reach. They're the ones on both sides of the aisle that don't want chaos in the streets, buildings burning down and people being assassinated on baseball fields.

"If you're looking at a football field, that 10-yard line that all the revolutionaries are on . . . there's 10 percent of those people that are beyond reason with their anger --- ten percent on the right; ten percent on the left. Assuming that number is right, that means that there are 80 yards . . . 80 percent of the country that doesn't want to feel that way," Glenn said.

So how do we reach that 80 percent?

"We are currently talking to people that I guess you could kind of put into the behavioral scientist category, and I've been reading and reading and reading and studying and working with people trying to figure out how do we talk to the 80 percent," Glenn shared.

What it boils down to is speaking the same language.

"We have different languages, the left and the right. And it is proven . . . it goes so deep now that when we go to a grocery store, scientists can look at your grocery store record and pretty much tell who you voted for by what products you buy. We are so different. We are as different as somebody who lives in Mexico City and grew up with that lifestyle and somebody who grew up in Chicago," Glenn said.

Will we ever agree on all policy issues? Of course not. But if we learn to speak the language of the left on their playing field, we can reach common ground and learn to live as friendly neighbors again.

"Can we find and convince --- let's just say 50 percent of the country --- that saying assassination of the president is not a good thing, and we shouldn't feel that and we should stand together?" Glenn asked.

GLENN: When you look at somebody like Johnny Depp, you say how can we -- Glenn, you want to talk to people like Johnny Depp. No, I don't. Because anybody who is calling for the assassination of the president is so far past reason that we're never going to get to them.

How are you going to talk to the people who are shouting down and throwing Molotov cocktails? You're not. You're never going to talk to them.

PAT: There's 10 percent of both sides that --

GLENN: Yeah, aren't reachable that quite honestly want revolution or, you know, burn the whole thing down.

Well, that's not where I am. And I don't ever want to go there. And revolution never works out for the people who start the revolution. Only the American revolution in world history ended with the same guys who started it.

So it doesn't -- it's not good. And if you think that you're in pain now, wait until there is chaos in the streets and the burning down of buildings, and we assassinate 30 people on a baseball diamond. It's not going to work out well. So what happens is we're all clashing, and we're all -- we want to feel good. And when we punch the other people in the face, we actually put ourselves into that -- if you're looking at a football field, that 10-yard line that you are -- that all the revolutionaries are in and all the people who are really angry and everything else, there's 10 percent of those people that are beyond reason with their anger. 10 percent on the right. 10 percent on the left. Assuming that that number is right. That means that there is 80 yards. There's 80 percent of the country that doesn't want to feel that way.

Now, are we going to convince the 80 percent that this is where, you know, this is the right way to go? No. But can we find common ground? And I'm not saying the past policies. I'm saying to lower the temperature. Can we find and convince -- let's just say 50 percent of the country -- that saying assassination of the president is not a good thing, and we shouldn't feel that, and we should stand together.

And being these people that say there is -- "We're at civil war, and there's nothing we can do about it. It's time to punch back. It's time to have violence."

It's over if we believe that.

So I believe we should play for the rest of the field. When Walsh said "Put the ball where the other team isn't." Well, the other team's on television because they look for views, ratings, clicks. They'll put the most outrageous headline, and they'll put the most salacious story up because that's what the red meat is. That's where the real people are that are just, like, I want to eat this all day long, and I'm just so angry.

That's maybe 20 percent of the population. The rest of the population is not feeling that way. But we're being led by the 10 percent on each side. So put the ball where the other team isn't. I look at both the 10 yards on the left and the 10 yards on the right with the real radicals. That's the same team, guys. They both want revolution.

So I'm going to put the ball in the 80 percent that doesn't want any of that. And let's talk to those people and forget the others.

So I want you to know when people say to you if you would pick up this philosophy as we try to teach it over the next few months. You say how are you going to talk to those people who are out of their mind crazy?

I'm not. I'm not talking about them. I'm not going to talk to them. That's an exercise in frustration. As Paul said, say what you have to say. Love them. Serve them. Be part of the community. If they're not listening, knock the dust off your feet and move on. We can knock the dust off of our feet of those people. You're not going to talk to the Antifa people.

But if you are standing next to them and screaming back, the 80 percent in the middle.

GLENN: And you were you in with them. Because there's no real good guy there. That's why Martin Luther King won. As people were shouting, turning hoses on them, releasing dogs, what determining? He was praying for those people. He wasn't trying to shout them down because he was right, and they were wrong. That's clear. That was Malcolm X's strategy. Take them on. Martin Luther King said "No, don't take them on. Worry about the rest of the country that will see their behavior and then see our behavior and say"I want to be with those guys."

Now, when you want to talk to the 80 percent, and this is the really -- this is the really hard thing when you want to talk to the 80 percent, we are currently talking to people that I guess you could kind of put into the behavioral scientist category. And I've been reading and reading and reading and studying and working with people trying to figure out how do we talk to the 80 percent? And there are people that will say "Glenn, you can't change your language. You're going to stop talking truth. Don't -- you don't stop talking truth."

No, I know that. I know. And I would never ask anyone to do that. What I'm saying is not that we have different truths, but that we have different languages. The left and the right. And it is proven, and it goes so deep now that when we go to a grocery store, scientists can look at your grocery store record and pretty much tell who you voted for by what products you buy. We are so different. We are as different as somebody who lives in Mexico City and somebody who lives and grew up -- lives, grew up as a Mexican in Mexico City as that lifestyle. And somebody who grew up in Chicago and lives that lifestyle and speaks that language.

Yes, we're both people. Yes, we both can recognize truth. But we have so many things that we don't share that if I wanted to be a missionary, and I wanted to go down and preach the truth, whatever that truth is, God, you know, the American scripture of the constitution, whatever it is. I would not say to somebody in Chicago "Oh, you want to be a missionary? Okay. Well, don't change your language."

I'm going down to Mexico. Yeah, don't speak their language. And whatever you do when you're there, don't eat any of that -- those taco enchilada things. You make sure you're eating ribs the whole time. You get as many good Chicago deep dish pizzas. And if they're not eating that pizza, don't you talk to them. And you just keep your language.

Well, don't you think I should speak Spanish? No. God will work it out.

Well, God will work some things out and sometimes he can translate language after you do all that you can do.

We have to look at the language of the left and the right as much as the language of Spanish and English. You can find truth, the exact same truth in both languages. But you will not be able to explain the truth to somebody who speaks a different language, unless you try to speak theirs, or they try to speak yours.

Otherwise, you're just sitting around yelling at each other.

"No, I said you should eat deep dish pizza. You know, pizza."

STU: That is exactly how I feel sometimes making arguments about politics. Don't you hear what I'm saying?

GLENN: No, they don't.

STU: Limited government.

GLENN: They don't.

STU: They just don't even hear it.

GLENN: Correct. And all we do is start shouting. And then when we're saying, "No, pizza." And they're looking at us, and they're screaming something at us that may not even be about food, we get angry, and we're, like, these people are worthless. They're -- they won't even understand pizza.

[Laughter]

Okay. Well, we're not speaking the same language. They don't understand it.

STU: Human life.

GLENN: Right. Right.

STU: Are you not -- let them live.

GLENN: Babies.

STU: Alive.

PAT: Murder is not a choice.

GLENN: Okay. And that's exactly what we're doing.

Elon Musk responded to allegations that he exposed himself to a corporate jet flight attendant by daring his accuser to "describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public."

"I have a challenge to this liar who claims their friend saw me “exposed” – describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public. She won’t be able to do so, because it never happened," Musk posted on twitter.

A Business Insider report on Thursday, alleged that a flight attendant for SpaceX's private jet fleet was paid $250,000 in 2018 to settle a sexual misconduct claim against the company's founder and CEO. A friend of the flight attendant signed a declaration accusing the tech billionaire of exposing himself to the attendant, who is also a licensed massage therapist, during an in-flight massage.

According to the declaration, the flight attendant told her friend that Musk asked her to come to his private cabin "for a full body massage" during a flight in late 2016. When she arrived, Musk "was completely naked except for a sheet covering the lower half of his body." The friend also told Insider that Musk propositioned the flight attendant, then "touched her thigh and told her he would buy her a horse."

One day before the Insider story was published, Musk predicted an escalation in political attacks against him after revealing on a podcast that he plans to vote Republican in the next election cycle.

Musk called the sexual misconduct allegations "wild accusations [that] are utterly untrue" and challenged his accuser to verify her claims by describing a certain something “not known by the public" about his private parts.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray reacted to the incredible "coincidence" of such allegations cropping up just days after the SpaceX CEO announced his intention to vote Republican in the next election cycle — not to mention joining Glenn's longrunning anti-ESG crusade by calling the corporate score system a "scam."

Anyone paying attention can see that President Biden is in dire straights come 2024, regardless of who his opponent may be. His administration has been workshopping several ideas to try and craft just the right message. One that will cut through all the noise (failures) and put him on a more solid footing should he go head-to-head in a rematch with the former President.

Biden called in the big guns and he wasn't afraid to call in a few favors either. He drew on his stint as VP and called Anita Dunn out of the bullpen and tapped the Center for American Progress Action Fund to try and help pull this one out. After an exhaustive six-month-long study into how President Trump was able to summon the magic of MAGA — they finally feel they have the winning message.

Dunn has gotten sloppy, however, since her days in the Obama administration. We obtained her contemporaneous notes and emails showing how they coined the term "ultra-MAGA," trying to get a little "extra pop" to his rhetoric. The leaked emails also show the evolution of the messaging over that same six-month period.


[The preceding Memo was a parody written by MRA writers Josh Jennings and Jon Boldt – not the Biden administration.]

Almost every week, new incriminating evidence is mined from Hunter’s wild laptop. And the proof is mounting that President Joe Biden is lying about his knowledge of his family’s crooked deal-making. Everyone knows Hunter Biden is a seriously degenerate guy. Anyone who has handled his infamous laptop needs a tetanus shot.

The salacious stuff on the laptop is sad and pathetic for sure, but that stuff is NOT what is most relevant to the United States. Glenn Beck exposes how the laptop is REALLY about Joe Biden, his abuse of power as vice president, and his ongoing denials now as president.

Now that the 2020 election has passed and their man is in office, the mainstream media have suddenly decided to admit Hunter’s laptop is not Russian disinformation after all. No one has done more research into the Biden family corruption than journalist and best-selling author Peter Schweizer. He has researched the depths of Hunter’s laptop and found more than racy photos. “These aren’t HUNTER’S business deals,” Peter says, “they benefit the WHOLE family.” And he has the emails to prove it.

But the mainstream media still insist President Biden is as pure as his thinning white hair in all of this. As Glenn reveals tonight, he is not. But will anyone in the Biden family see jail time? Americans are fed up with two sets of rules – one for regular citizens and one for the ruling elites.

Intelligent people know that wokerness plagues society and must be ridiculed and eradicated from conversations. But what happens when people lose their jobs for calling out the absurdity of woke ideology? What happens when corporations and media sources weaponize wokeness?

Here are five videos that will help us better understand a few of the many issues that wokeness inflicts on society and how we can stand against it.

Bye bye, Target. You crossed the line!

In this clip, BlazeTV host Allie Stuckey of "Relatable" explains how Target recently announced the sale of chest binders and "packing underwear" for women. She expresses how children can be negatively impacted by the sale of confusing clothing items for people suffering from gender dysphoria and the importance of loving the body God gave us.

Today, Allie notices that Target's stock experienced a 35-year record drop. Apparel was named as one of the two underperforming departments. Was pushback from critics of gender-affirming apparel the cause? It is hard to tell, but Allie encourages her audience to continue speaking out when corporations cross the line by making harmful products available for sale to the public.

Wokeness can get you fired

In this clip, Stu Burguiere covers a story about a man who challenged Black Lives Matter using nothing but data and was fired.

Here's the story: "I had been at Thomson Reuters for over six years—most recently, leading a team of data scientists applying new machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms to our legal, tax and news data. We advised any number of divisions inside the company, including Westlaw, an online legal research service used by most every law firm in the country, and the newsroom, which reaches an audience of one billion every day around the globe. I briefed the Chief Technology Officer regularly. My total annual compensation package exceeded $350,000." Read more

Coca-Cola circumvents Constitution with TERRIFYING mandates on diversity

Glenn Beck loves Coca-Cola. So much so, in fact, that he refuses to drink Pepsi if Coke isn't available. But ... he says the time has come for him to give up his favorite soda. Why? Because Coca-Cola just announced some terrifying new company policies on diversity and equity. It sent out notices to all partnered law firms, demanding a required percentage of diverse attorneys on any legal team working for the corporation. The notice says all legal teams also must report these numbers quarterly and they will lose Coca-Cola's business if they do not comply.

"Equity is not the same thing as equality," Glenn said, adding that equality means we all have an equal chance, while equality means we all have the same outcome.

Glenn explains how mandates like this could affect everybody — even the guy working on the factory line or the truck driver delivering the drinks. Glenn also explains how Coke's new move is nothing less than a circumvention of the Constitution, and he predicts more companies (especially those in support of the Great Reset) will follow with similar policies, too.

Coca-Cola takes a 'pause' on woke initiatives after after pressure from the Right

Glenn followed up on a story about Coca-Cola becoming the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appeared to shift directions.

Calvin Klein's gender blender ruins sex and Mothers' Day

Chad Prather reflected back to the Great Depression era of enticing photographic entertainment, otherwise known as the callow and deprived years of his youth, when a Calvin Klein pictorial of old would have represented something exciting, something to, say, think about at the end of the day. Had he run across this present weird concept at that age, he would have either been disgusted on sight … or possibly really disgusted when his dumb a** put two and two together the next day. Anyway, his point is: Has the whole world gone crazy? Do we really need this? At this inclusive embracing point in our recent history, what in the world makes Calvin Klein feel the need to be the standard-bearer for a lifestyle screamed largely into existence by a very vocal minority?

Former Disney artist SPEAKS OUT: ‘It’s time to do something’

A former Disney artist, who wishes to remain anonymous, joins Glenn to describe WHY he recently took action against his former employer: ‘I'm tired of watching my country go down the drain. And it's time to do something.’ Today’s woke Disney is not what Walt once imagined, he says, and his recent video release — "It’s A Woke World After All" — exposes Disney’s large stray from its roots ...
