Carolyn from Pennsylvania called in to “The Glenn Beck Radio Program” on Thursday to talk about her experience being a young conservative and why she thinks it’s vital for people to reach across the aisle and be kind to one another.
The 18-year-old said she and her dad were both long-time listeners of Glenn’s show. Her dad owned a furniture store but lost his business after the market crash in 2008; afterward, he took a state job and became a union worker.
“I now understand, you know, not just the side of the entrepreneur but the side of the union man, and it’s very humbling,” Carolyn said.
In today’s politicized atmosphere, politics divide us and take over everything, including the classroom. Carolyn shared a story related to the recent shooting in Alexandria when a gunman targeted GOP lawmakers, an incident that only further divided people because of the suspect’s apparent political motives. She reached out to more liberal friends to encourage them and remind them that she would never blame one Bernie Sanders volunteer’s actions on them.
“People who are liberals can be friends with conservatives; the key is that you stand on principles and not rhetoric,” she said.
