Glenn played some incredible audio this morning on the radio program of radio commentator Paul Harvey from 1965. Glenn knew Harvey, and described him as “absolutely inspired of God.”
Last night on GBTV, Glenn explained to viewers that America has crossed over into new territory. “The progressives, I believe, have realized their dream. They have taken those baby steps,” Glenn said. “It is time to stop studying progressives.”
Glenn challenged those that don’t think the progressives have accomplished their goals to “listen to the prophetic words of radio commentator Paul Harvey.”
The audio is of Paul Harvey explaining how he would destroy us [America] if he were Satan…
“If I were the devil, I wouldn’t be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree—Thee. So I’d set about however necessary to take over the United States. I’d subvert the churches first—I would begin with a campaign of whispers. With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: “Do as you please.” “Do as you please.” To the young, I would whisper, “The Bible is a myth.” I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around. I would confide that what is bad is good, and what is good is “square”. And the old, I would teach to pray. I would teach them to pray after me, ‘Our Father, which art in Washington…’
And then I’d get organized. I’d educate authors on how to lurid literature exciting, so that anything else would appear dull and uninteresting. I’d threaten TV with dirtier movies and vice versa. I’d pedal narcotics to whom I could. I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.
If I were the devil I’d soon have families that war with themselves, churches that war that themselves, and nations that war with themselves; until each in its turn was consumed. And with promises of higher ratings I’d have mesmerizing media fanning the flame. If I were the devil I would encourage schools to refine young intellects, and neglect to discipline emotions—just let those run wild, until before you knew it, you’d have to have drug sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door.
Within a decade I’d have prisons overflowing, I’d have judges promoting pornography—soon I could evict God from the courthouse, and then the schoolhouse, and then from the houses of Congress. And in His own churches I would substitute psychology for religion, and deify science. I would lure priests and pastors into misusing boys and girls, and church money. If I were the devil I’d make the symbols of Easter an egg and the symbol of Christmas a bottle.
If I were the devil I’d take from those, and who have, and give to those wanted until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. What do you bet I could get whole states to promote gambling as the way to get rich? I would question against extremes and hard work, and Patriotism, and moral conduct. I would convince the young that marriage is old-fashioned, that swinging more fun, that what you see on the TV is the way to be. And thus I could undress you in public, and I could lure you into bed with diseases for which there is no cure. In other words, if I were to devil I’d keep on doing on what he’s doing. Paul Harvey, good day.”
“That is unbelievable,” Glenn said after listening to the audio.
Of the line, “I would lure you into bed and give you disease to which there is no cure,” Pat noted was way ahead of it’s time. “That wasn’t the case in 1965. We had no idea about AIDS—that’s amazing,” he said.
“When you listen to that now you say, those are our problems,” Glenn told listeners. “Those are the problems of our society. Those are the ills.”
Glenn pointed back to what he calls “Phase 1,” the transformation of the nation and to weaken it to the point of crisis. “If you listen to what he just said, that’s phase 1,” Glenn said.
Glenn explained that just how the devil wants your soul forever, that by creating a system for ours to collapse into, people would end up begging for the things America once stood against. “What you would never, ever ask for today, I’m going to make it your idea. If I’m the devil,” Glenn explained, “I make you beg for it.”
