Twitter founder goes on tone-deaf silent vacation to Burma to end suffering

Jack Dorsey is the multi-billionaire Co-Founder and CEO of Twitter. And he's got very high moral standards for his platform. It's a totally free speech platform, for most people. I mean there are exceptions of course, just like everything else in life. Some people don't have the right views, therefore they don't belong on Twitter. It's understandable, just like some minorities don't belong in certain countries. You know, like the Rohingya ethnic minority in Myanmar, also known as Burma.

Burma? What does that have to do with Jack Dorsey and Twitter? Apparently, a lot. You see, Mr. Dorsey knows a ton about virtue-signaling by banning certain users who don't adhere to his Progressive tenets. But when it comes to real-life virtue, he is now the Beethoven of tone-deafness.

Dorsey was very proud of his recent ten-day meditation vacation, so last weekend he let the world know how virtuous it was. He tweeted that his meditation was all about, "Understanding the inner nature as a way to understand everything. It [his form of meditation] was rediscovered by Gautama the Buddha 2,500 years ago through rigorous scientific self-experimentation to answer the question: how do I stop suffering?"

Isn't that neat? The multi-billionaire went on a silent meditation vacation to look inside himself and figure out how can he stop suffering. Meanwhile, the place where he took his vacation and tweeted those precious moments is a place full of suffering called Burma.

A recent "unprecedented" U.N. report concludes that Burma's military regime has pursued a campaign of genocide against the Rohingya Muslim minority for the past year and a half. The regime is accused of mass rape and murder. Over 720,000 Rohingya have fled their homeland for Bangladesh, creating the largest refugee camp in the world.

Isn't that neat? The multi-billionaire went on a silent meditation vacation to look inside himself and figure out how can he stop suffering.

But hey, the food in Burma is great according to Dorsey, who also mentioned the swell time he had listening to the music of Kendrick Lamar once the silent part of his retreat was over. He tweeted:

Myanmar is an absolutely beautiful country. The people are full of joy and the food is amazing.

Well, some of the people are full of joy maybe. On one hand, it's hard to understand why a seemingly intelligent, billionaire CEO would choose to vacation in an oppressive regime like Burma. Then again, forcing out people based on their beliefs may have just made Dorsey feel right at home.

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
