Glenn Beck changes course on ‘All Lives Matter,’ because black people don’t get any pie, or something

Glenn Beck has had a change of heart.

And, agree with him or not, he has always been good about admitting when that happens.

In response to the Black Lives Matter movement, Beck, who’s also the founder of The Blaze, a multi platform news and entertainment network, has been promoting the notion that all lives matter.

But, he’s not convinced it’s such a good concept anymore.


Beck discussed the need for conservative to launch a new political party in an interview with NPR Saturday, adding that it’s important for conservatives to appear to all races, income groups and nationalities.

“I think it’s important for us to appeal to everybody,” he said at about 2:45 into the interview.

“I had a new kind of thought on Black Lives Matter and the all lives matter thing,” he continued. “The best way to explain it is if we’re all sitting around a table having dinner, and everybody gets pie except for you, and you say, ‘My pie matters; I don’t have pie.’ And everybody at the table looks at you and says, ‘I know; all pie matters.’”

He said that illustration indicates that no one is listening to the person who didn’t get the pie.

Beck went on to say that although he has issues with the founders of the Black Lives Matter movement, he could “relate to them and understand them on many different fronts,” he said.

“We need to start listening to each other and getting out of our own little labeled bubbles,” Beck concluded.

Milwaukee was the scene of the latest Black Lives Matter demonstration, which erupted into an all out riot that included widespread arson and looting and other acts of violence after officers fatally shot an armed suspect.

Despite the violence, at least one city alderman advised police to meet the demands of the rioters — or else.

There’s no question but that we should listen to the valid complaints of others — emphasis on the word “valid.” But to at least one Milwaukee area resident, it’s all about not getting enough free stuff.

Beck was interviewed in Denver, Colorado, where he was the keynote speaker at the Conservative Blog RedState Gathering, and drove the same point home there.
