Remember the Alamo (in a PC and neutral way only)!

Glenn doesn’t hide his love for Texas, but he had a couple of issues with the state on radio this morning. His concern came with schools in Texas starting to teach Arabic and culture classes, as well as a shift in the way the history of the Alamo is being taugh.

“ Some middle school parents were shocked this week when they found out that two schools in their Mansfield, Texas school district will soon be requiring Arabic language and culture courses.  How about we do American culture courses, what do you think?  Could we do that?” Glenn asked.

“Forcing it in their schools.  The foreign language assistance program grant was awarded to Mansfield ISD last summer by the U.S. Department of Education.  As part of the $1.3 million grant, Arabic classes would be mandatory at Crosstimbers Intermediate School and Kenneth Davis Elementary School,” Glenn read.

“Parents were caught off guard by the program, were surprised by the district telling them only in a meeting on Monday night between parents and superintendent.  DOE has identified Arabic as a language of the future.”

“ The language of the future.  And so they are going to learn about the Arabic language and its culture, similar to the way kids are now learning about Spanish and the Mexican culture,” Glenn said.

Pat then pointed out that schools are now teaching the history of The Alamo with a “neutral stance”.

“May I just ask a question?  What the hell is wrong with us!  What is happening to us?” Glenn asked.

“Let me give you something from William Travis that is honestly, I need to get a copy of this letter and I just want to have it framed in front of my desk.  William Travis was one of the heroes of the Alamo.  I want you to listen to this letter.”

Glenn read:

“My fellow citizens and compatriots,  I am besieged, by a thousand or more of the Mexicans under Santa Anna I have sustained a continual Bombardment & cannonade for 24 hours & have not lost a man The enemy has demanded a surrender at discretion.  Otherwise the garrison are to be put to the sword, if the fort is taken — I have answered their demand with a cannon shot, and our flag still waves proudly from the walls — I shall never surrender or retreat.

Then I call on you in the name of Liberty, of patriotism & everything dear to the American character, to come to our aid, with all dispatch The enemy is receiving reinforcements daily & will no doubt increase to three or four thousand in four or five days.  If this call is neglected, I am determined to sustain myself as long as possible & die like a soldier who never forgets what is due to his own honor & that of his country VICTORY OR DEATH. William Barret Travis.  PS:  The Lord is on our side.  When the enemy appeared in sight we had not three bushels of corn.  We have since found in deserted houses 80 or 90 bushels.  Travis.”

“That letter should say everything.  That letter is from an independent American,” Glenn said.

“Later Davy Crockett comes after telling congress, you can all go to hell.  Why did he say that to congress?  Because here's a guy who fought for freedom and justice, American justice, equal justice.  He wasn't out and he said, no, the Indians are not our enemies.  Some of them are killers.  Some of them are not.  And we can make treaties with them.  We can make deals with them.  And we can live on the land together.  And he did.  And he gave his word.  And then Andrew Jackson gets into office.  And when Andrew Jackson gets into office, he decides manifest destiny:  Take the damn land from the Indians.”

“Now, before he says that, Davy Crockett is crazed because he's like, no, no, not Andrew Jackson.  No, not Andrew Jackson.  He runs to go to the house in Washington.  Here's a guy that if you ever read his actual words and transcript, you can barely understand what he's saying.  He's like, he's not going to give me one of them raccoon things and put it on my... and then we'll all have soup!  You're like, what the hell is he even talking about? He lost his first election.  Andrew Jackson stopped him.  He wins the next one and he goes to Washington and he said, I am at no man's bidding.  I bark for no man.  And he's tricked by Andrew Jackson to leave the state while they start this debate on the Indian removal act.  He finds out about it. He comes back and he reads congress the riot act and he says, how dare you.  How dare you.  What are you doing?  And he leaves.  And as he leaves congress, he looks at him and he says, you can all go to hell; I'm going to Texas.  Well, he was from Kentucky.  Why is he going to Texas?  Because he heard of a group of Americans that were standing for something that meant something.  Not even their own independence.  Another man's independence, a Mexican independence at the Alamo.  And he rides down and he joins Travis, where Travis has drawn a line in the sand.  This is where it comes from.  I'm going to draw a line in the sand.  We're all going to die.  You stand on the side with me and die for freedom.  If you stay on that side, that's okay.  Go away.  But the time to go is now.  I'm drawing a line in the sand.”

“This story and this letter and these men have the answer and now you're telling me not only are we teaching Arabic and culture when we can't even teach American culture.  We teach Mexican culture, but we are neutral on the Alamo?  When Texas becomes neutral on the Alamo, Texas will be over in one generation.  Texas can lead the way out because Texas understands independence and freedom.  Texas understands what the Alamo is all about.  I didn't need to read that letter from Travis.  Most Texans know it.  Most Americans don't and that's the problem.”

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
