Lang Lang plays anti-US song at White House dinner

Glenn doesn’t usually call for someone to lose their job (not even Keith Olbermann), but whoever helped plan the reception for Chinese President Hu at the White House may want to start drafting a resume. Glenn had the story on radio this morning.

“I think we could put a pencil into the Office of Protocol and maybe a puppy that cannot, no matter what you do, be house‑trained, a pencil and a carpet‑pooping, wetting puppy in the office of protocol in the White House and they would do better for our relations in the rest of the world than the clowns that are currently running,” Glenn said on radio. (Wonder what that would look like? Click here.)

Glenn explained that world famous pianist Lang Lang played a song in the White House called “My Homeland.”

“No one in the Office of Protocol said, hey, what's that song about?  Because they talk about, you know, when the tyrants come, grab your rifles,” Glenn said of the song, which refers to the United States as one of the “tyrants” and “the jackal”.

“Can you imagine the reverse of this?  If it was an official state visit, Barack Obama is there and they bring out some American to perform for the Chinese in Beijing and he sings some anti‑Chinese song?  That would be an international incident,” Pat suggested.

“Now, apparently President Hu knew exactly what this song was and when it was written.  Apparently everybody in China knows this song.  It is a very famous song.  But our Office of Protocol doesn't!” an exasperated Glenn said. He added that anyone would an ounce of curiosity may have asked what the song was about, especially since they knew of the selection ahead of time.

This is just the latest snafu from the White House Office of the Chief of Protocol, which also allowed President Obama to give the Queen of England an iPod and Gordon Brown a set of DVDs (which didn’t work in England’s DVD players) in 2009.

In typical Glenn Beck fashion, the conversation did degenerate into a joke fest at times. Most notable, Glenn asked Stu and Pat if they were “up on their Lang Lang”, to which Stu and Pat said they were up on their KD Lang and Clubber Lang, but, sadly, they did not know much about Lang Lang.

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?"
