— a transgender man, a Christian conservative, a Second Amendment advocate, a liberal college professor, and more — to sit down for dinner and explore their vastly different viewpoints and the sensitive political issues that matter to them most.


Will it be Glenn Beck playing each role, like in the Nutty Professor?

I agree.

I seek out alternate viewpoints when i can. On FB i am in groups that are hard alt right, extremely progressive, libertarian, some folks who just hate religion, some religious groups...

Some of it is me not wanting the social media echo chamber. Some of it is me trying to be unpredictable to throw off Zuccs algorithms. But opposing viewpoints need to be heard.


I totally agree, I am the same way........I try to do my best to be open-minded, it is very hard this day and age though when you really want to try and have a discussion but all youre getting is attacked or shouted down, that goes for both sides

I think its why this is so important

Honestly, I found that hilarious.

But this was also an amazingly done by Beck, super cool! It can be a bit boring to watch people being all polite and getting along, but we have to build some bridges.

Sure? Go look him up.....

Or you could enlighten yourself and be a part of the solution.....

I like Glenn because he is a Libertarian. It doesn’t surprise me that a Libertarian would have this meal. The are all for diversity they just want less Government, more freedom and no wars. Kind of a beatiful thing.

The problem with everything in your country is that a bunch of people discussing different viewpoints is an amazing and miraculous thing instead of just you know...a normal reasonable thing that people do. This video shouldn't be some kind of momentous grand occasion...

Thats not unique to the US, I have family in Canda, its not all peaches and friendly conversation like you say it is...nor is it in ANY country....

Why bother even commenting if you dont have anything positive to say?

Hmmm why not? Why should I be positive a celebrity, a gay Muslim and a tranny talked together. Honestly tell me what's so #ing amazing about that?

You're right it's not all peaches and friendly conversation, but things like that are really not an issue here.

For a country that won't ever shut the # up about individual freedom, you guys never stop going on about what other people believe in, who they #, what colour they are, how much money they have, what their political beliefs are and just about every single thing another person can do or be.

The difference is most people here don't give a # about those things. Why should they? Why should anyone else care in the slightest when it comes to any of those things about another person? Most people here realize other people are different in some way and don't tend to make a big deal out of it.

Whats amazing about it? Whats amazing is that in a world that has become at each others throats (which you are clearly displaying with your repeated uses of hashtags in place of the F word) people are actually trying to remind people that they dont have to be that way.......

That in a world where we use to celebrate our differences, and care about each other despite our beliefs, it has become a norm to shout the other person down or be hostile (again like youre displaying) and THEY are trying to do something about it.

Whats great about it is that people are taking action.......

With the way youre approaching things on this thread and on the others towards Americans, and America in general.

you could probably learn something......

and just an FYI you might read up on these....you seem just a bit hostile and this isnt the mudpit

Wouldn't it be more amazing and just as terrifying if the Christians and Muslims agreed that they didn't like gays at all and what both religions would do to them?

A transgendered christian an and gay Muslim sounds nice on paper, but in such a reality, this is just sugar coating more deeper issues that have been going on for the past couple hundred to thousand years of immense bloodshed

Im not seeing what youre trying to get at here..........there are gay christians and gay muslims.......so no it wouldnt be "amazing" if both religions decided to hate them......

You seem to have some issues with gay people though apparently, this is your second post on them......and If im honest its coming off as a bit bigoted......

I said it be amazing if they got along for once, but it would be as equally terrifying if they did in that sense.

I'm being realistic an stereotypical more so then bigoted...15+ years ago, gay an Christian, would be offensive to...tradition, where gay an marriage could not be in the same sentance. Let alone transgendered, but desperate times in the rise of atheism an a lack of charity would open an old bigots... wallet.

Islam kind of beats the bush around this issue, but a gay Muslim...wow what a fashion statement. Like they never existed before.

What a bunch of freaking contradictory weasel words just to be as hateful and hurtful as you can be.

You lost all credibility in your first posts -- and continued thereafter -- when you claimed to "realize" that others are different... but then call ALL of us "you guys" and tar us all with the same broad brush, while proclaiming the collective virtue of ALL of your people who never ever do that... even as you are being as insulting and hateful as possible.

I'm cringing for you.
