Ben Shapiro on Justice Kennedy’s retirement: ‘Media is going to play this as the end of the world’

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced Wednesday that he plans to retire on July 31 of this year, a move that is already being called "every Republican's dream scenario for Trump" by the media, as Kennedy is considered to be the swing vote on the Supreme Court.

Kennedy has recently helped give conservatives wins on several Supreme Court Cases, including the ruling that legalized same-sex marriage in 2015, the case of a florist who refused to provide arrangements for a gay wedding, and the ruling that public sector unions can't force employees to pay dues.Kennedy's departure creates an opportunity for President Donald Trump's chosen replacement to potentially shift the balance of power on the court … and in the country. Democrats have already gone into a panic, expressing concerns that this retirement will mean the end of Roe v. Wade, which Kennedy upheld in 1992.

On today's show, Ben Shapiro joined Glenn Beck to discuss Kennedy's retirement and what it could mean for the future, particularly at a time when our country is already politically polarized.

"It could get really, really scary," said Shapiro. "As the stakes rise politically, the ire rises and the violence rises. I think the possibility of political violence was already high. The fact now that everything is so polarized, and the fact that Trump is going to get another Supreme court pick, and the media is going to play this as the end of the world, it could get really bad really quickly."

"The chances that the country continues to polarize are extremely high, right now," he continued. "Both parties seem to have been hijacked by the people who are the angriest. And anger, right now, is seen as a form of authenticity. If you're not angry, then it means that you're not authentic. That's a dangerous place to be."

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
