Media, with no facts, plays politics with tragic shooting

Rather than seeing a leader stand up to tell the truth and lead with common sense in the face of senseless tragedy, Glenn saw everyone trying to blame conservatives, talk radio, Sarah Palin, and more in an effort to push their own individual agendas.

Glenn said, “I have so desperately this weekend looked for a leader, looked for someone with common sense, looked for someone who would tell the truth. Instead I find a sheriff who has no facts and blames it on talk radio. Instead I find, I believe it was Time magazine that said, if I may quote: 'We have none of the facts yet, but who would be surprised if this was a Glenn Beck fan'. I've looked for anyone that would not play politics with it.”

“This isn't about politics,” Glenn said. “[Al-Qaeda] try to convince their own population that it's about politics, it's about oppression, it's about a group that can't be stopped because they're too big and powerful. So you have to go out and strap a bomb to yourself and blow yourself up. It's not about freedom fighters. It's about terror. It's about murder. It's not suicide; it's murder. It's madness. It's mayhem.”

Glenn said that there are three potential dangers facing our country. There are madmen, there are those waiting for collapse and chaos, and then there are terrorists. “There have been terrorists. There have been American terrorists. There has been the D.C. sniper and there's been the Oklahoma City bomber. Terrorists. Americans. And they will come again.”

“There have been crazy people, and they will strike and they will kill and they will come again. The question is, do we make them all about politics? Do we Balkanize ourselves? Do we become the Israelis and the Palestinians where people are just killing because they don't even know what they're killing for anymore?”

Glenn said that Jared Lee Loughner clearly falls into the category of “madmen”.

Stu pointed out, “He was a hardcore atheist, he believed -- one of his favorite books was the Communist Manifesto. He believed George W. Bush was responsible for 9/11. He thought the Mars rover landing was fake.”

Glenn explained that every individual has a choice, and Jared Lee Loughner chose to be a killer. “The killer this weekend had an individual choice: Kill or don't kill. He chose. He was insane. But now the media and the politicians have a choice: Use this for your own political purposes or be bigger than that. America demands bigger people. America deserves bigger people. Because there are those on the left and the right, and we've been doing research over the weekend on the left and the right who do believe violence is the answer. I am not one of them.”

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
