It's (not) the end of the world as we know it

Last night on TV, Glenn did a show that talked about the Twelfth Imam, a belief held by a small, radical sect of Muslims that includes the leaders of Iran, that speaks of a returning prophet of Islam. On the show, Glenn compared the Book of Revelation with the Hadith where the Twelfth Imam is mentioned.

“I want you to know I am not saying that these are the end times.  I am not saying that this is the end of the world,” Glenn cautioned.

Glenn said that in different periods of history, people have drawn comparisons between current events and the end times. For example, Glenn said “People were convinced that Adolf Hitler was the Antichrist.  He had all of the earmarks of the Antichrist and it was a growing occultist state.  He was a spooky dude.”

“I do believe there is growing evil coming out of the Middle East and the rest of the world that are lining up.  This is a growing evil here in America, and political correctness has allowed it to grow,” Glenn explained.

“We outlined some of these last night on the TV show.  According to the sacred traditions of Islam ‑‑ this is not in the Qur’an.  This is in the Hadith, which is the sacred stories of the Prophet Muhammad.  So this is not Qur’an,” Glenn explained.

Glenn then laid out some of the parallels between the Biblical Antichrist and the Twelfth Imam who appears in the Hadith. Among the comparisons were the establishment of a unified “new world order” in both texts. In the Bible it’s led by the Antichrist, in the Hadith the Twelfth Imam and the Muslim interpretation of Jesus, who is simply another Prophet, lead the one world government. Both books speak of a mark of the Beast, punishment for Jews and Christians, and more.

On the show, Glenn spoke with Zuhdi Jasser, a friend of Glenn’s and a practicing Muslim. “[Dr. Jasser] tells me that ‑‑ he verified that that's all in the Hadith, but he tells me that this is the problem.  The Hadith is not necessarily written by Mohammed, and parts of it he believes should be taken out because they are not original.”

But, Glenn warned that when “you see the Muslim Brotherhood say, 'Hey, we're going to kill all the Jews,' they mean it.  Because they are doing the work of the Mahdi.  The Army in Iran is the Islamic Army of the Mahdi.  When Ahmadinejad says we're going to have a global Caliphate and let me hasten the return of the Promised One and the Jews and the Great Satan will fuel the fires of the Islamic fury, he means it.  He means it.”

“I will tell you this:  This week when the leader of Iran, the current Ayatollah, the spiritual leader comes out and says, hey, I've been in contact with the Twelfth Imam, and Ahmadinejad says the chaos and the riots that you're seeing around the world, you are witnessing the hand of the Twelfth Imam, the Mahdi, and he is at work on Earth and this is his plan, I believe they both believe it,” Glenn said.

But Glenn and Stu both cautioned that this is not a belief held by the majority of Muslims, but a small, radical and vocal sect.

“As you pointed out very clearly last night, you know, this is not the typical, you know, beliefs.  This is not Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, you know, who you had on the program who's a practicing Muslim and does not believe these things.  You're talking about people like President Ahmadinejad.  This is not the salesperson that you work with in your office.  We're talking about Ahmadinejad style extreme Twelverism,” Stu explained.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?
