Glenn to caller: Egypt “isn’t a joking matter”

Glenn spoke throughout the show about the riots and protests in Egypt, and when a caller called and made a joke about the riots, Glenn quickly shut the caller down and told people to think about how serious this is.

“Today in Egypt things are melting down quickly. They have already shut down Twitter and the Internet. And now they -- according to The Blaze, they're wow dropping calls and shutting down cell phone service in Egypt. It is not going to last long, and you've got the Muslim brotherhood. This will destabilize Saudi Arabia. It will destabilize the enter region,” Glenn explained.

He added that while Egypt isn’t free by any means, the riots and chaos and collapse of the Egyptian government will further destabilize a troubled country.

A personal called in and started to joke about the violence spreading to America, but Glenn quickly shut him down.

“ No, we don't want [anyone] tossed out of the window. We're moving on from you. Don't. Let me go to -- this -- that is such -- that is so irresponsible, so irresponsible,” Glenn said of the callers joke about throwing Columbia professors out a window,

“When you see what's happening in Egypt, this isn't a joking matter, this isn't a joking matter. You can joke about riots all you want. You can joke about violence all you want. Not a joke, not a joke. Maybe a year ago it was funny to make jokes about it. It's not now. Look at what is happening in Europe,” Glenn said.

“Look how it has spread, as unfortunate we predicted it would spread, it has and even when the French riots were going on -- this is before Greece. When the rioting in France and France was on -- Paris was on fire virtually every night, we said, this is coming to other countries,” Pat said of the show’s predicitions.

“Let me tell you something. What did I say to you about four weeks ago? You haven't seen the Muslim population of Europe riot yet. If what is happening -- if the Muslim brotherhood takes Egypt, it destabilizes the entire Middle East. It sets the Middle East -- if not immediately, within a reasonable period of time, sets the entire thing on fire. The Muslim brotherhood is not good. So, it sets the Middle East on fire. As soon as anyone thinks that there is a shot, the Muslim radicals in Europe and in England rise up. You don't think that there's going to be -- you've got the communists and the Muslim radicals. They are not one and the same. They're not coordinating or anything else, but once they start to work together, whether it's coordinated or not -- and I don't believe it would be -- once they start to work in concert, Europe is done. It is done. I don't know how you -- where is the police force that's going to be able to police the entire world like that? Russia? The United States? How are you going to quell the middle east?” Glenn said.

“Did anybody notice -- did anybody report yesterday besides FOX News that we found a suicide bombing handbook printed in Iran in Arizona on the northern side of our border? Well, gee, what do you think that is? Oh, I just -- that just -- that book, you know, printed in Iran, it's nothing. Don't worry about it. You can get that at every book store. No, you don't. I don't know what his point was, but don't even joke about it. It shows a lack of understanding of how delicate this situation is. Gang, we are sitting on September 10th.”

“Remember I told you that, you know, it would start in someplace and nobody would even notice it and they wouldn't -- you would only look back in history books and say, that was the flash point? It would be something that you just never even saw coming? It may be Tunisia. That may have been the flash point that starts the ball rolling. I hope to God it's not.”

“This is not good.”

Glenn later talked about the internet being shut off in Egypt.

“You'll see how the Internet traffic just builds and builds and builds and you can see when they actually turn it off,” Glenn said of the image below which was posted on

Glenn said that by the time he is back on air Monday he expects to see a country that has fallen to revolution.

The Capitol riot was foolish and tragic, but Pelosi's Select Committee "investigation" on the January 6 "insurrection" has devolved into a show trial complete with bad tears and bad acting. But this is just a charade designed to distract us.

What's going on behind closed doors is truly nefarious. The Biden White House and the U.S. national security apparatus are seizing that event to redefine domestic terrorism and expand the powers of government to prevent it. There is an alarming blueprint for sweeping government action called the "National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism," put together by the National Security Council.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the collusion between the Biden administration and Big Tech to surveil, root out, and silence America's deplorables – all in the name of national security.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.
