Glenn Beck Says He’s Come Around on ‘All Lives Matter’ vs ‘Black Lives Matter’

Last year Glenn Beck led an All Lives Matter rally in Birmingham, but now he appears to have come around on the idea.

A lot of conservative complaints with Black Lives Matter have been with the name itself––people have argued that it’s too exclusive and implies black lives take precedence over other lives. Supporters of the movement say the message is supposed to be that black lives matter too.

In an interview with NPR today, Beck likened “Black Lives Matter” to someone sitting at a table and “everybody gets pie except for you.”

Beck said if that person complains “my pie matters” and the response they get it “all pie matters,” then “it shows that the people at the table aren’t really listening.”

He made it clear he still has problems with the tactics and philosophy of the Black Lives Movement, but said he “can relate to them and understand them on many different fronts.”

And we would be remiss if we didn’t also show you this Vine, demonstrating how Beck was hammering home a similar point at the RedState Gathering last night:
