Happy Easter from the Communists

The Communist Party USA has put out a special Easter message, emphasizing the “revolution” and pretty much ignoring the resurrection. The authors of the message claims to be a Catholic, but Glenn wondered how any person of faith could get behind the blatant propaganda.

Glenn read:

Easter isn't about Easter bunnies or even about going to church and Easter bonnets.  The real message of Easter speaks powerfully to everyone, whatever their religious belief or unbelief.  I'm just, that's starting to shake apart here just a little bit.  Easter got started after the revolutionary preacher Jesus was executed by the forces of an empire.  Some of his disciples had powerful experiences that convinced them that he had beaten death and was still present with them and that Jesus' victory over death was a new start of a new world in which all oppression and injustice would be defeated.

Some might argue that those experiences were fantasy or hallucination, but what those disciples did was certainly no hallucination.  He they went on to build a movement, especially among the poor and oppressed that shook the Roman Empire to the point that its rulers ultimately felt compelled to take it over and co-opt it.

Yet even through all centuries that ruling classes have tried to suppress the revolutionary element of the Easter message, the people's forces have time and time again reclaimed it.  Just look at the peasants revolt in medieval Europe, liberation theology in Latin America and Martin Luther King and the civil rights and other people's movements in our own country.

People of any faith or no faith should look beyond the bunnies and the eggs and the flowers to that original revolutionary Easter message, that another world is possible.  It's already on its way.  Easter should spur us on to the struggle to bring that new world to birth.

"This Easter message brought to you by the Communist Party USA," Glenn said.

How does a practicing Catholic write something so critical of the Holy Roman Empire? Glenn wasn’t too sure about that either.

“These people that claim to be strong members of faith kill me, especially when they will say the Easter message got started after the revolutionary preacher was executed by forces of the empire,” Glenn said.

“Some of his disciples had powerful experiences that convinced them that he had beaten death.  I believe all of his disciples did.”

Glenn also didn’t understand how a person of faith could call the resurrection a hallucination.

“And I'm sorry - you're missing the whole Easter message and that is death can be conquered.”

“The message is insurrection, not resurrection. That's the message,” Pat joked.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
