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 GlennBeck.com.

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

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."
