Beck reacts to news of Osama bin Laden's death

Osama bin Laden is dead!

The mass murderer responsible for the deaths of thousands of Americans on September 11th was captured and killed by U.S. forces in Pakistan yesterday, and out of respect for Islamic beliefs his body was buried at sea within twenty-four hours of his death. Glenn reacted to the news on radio this morning and offered up some alternatives of what the U.S. forces could have done with bin Laden’s body.

“First of all, congratulations to President Obama. He got him. Congratulations to SEAL team,” Glenn said. “I found out this morning that it was the SEALs and I wrote to Marcus [Luttrell] right away and I said God bless you guys.

“My problem with this is that we gave this guy a dignified burial at sea, or at least that's what they said. I really would have put this guy in a meat grinder with a pig, sorry. Oh, you're not going to get your 72 virgins? Sorry, that sucks to be you. Wrap him up in Hormel, pack him in a can of Spam, man,” Glenn said.

“He's a terrorist. He's a serial killer. He's a mass murderer,” Glenn said.

“They gave him a dignified burial and honored the body so he could go and get his 72 virgins? I'm telling you, I would have put cans of bacon bits in every orifice of his body.”

“They don't want to have a shrine. You don't want to have a place where the body, where people can gather and think of it as his site,” Stu said in defense of the burial at sea.

“Put him on that little island in Disney World where they've got Walt in the freezer. Put him there,” Glenn joked. “ Put him in the bottom of a freezer in the basement of that building where they're keeping the Ark of the Covenant. I saw it on Indiana Jones.”

Glenn then got serious and thanked the people who helped make this possible.

“Thank God for the Navy SEALs. Thank God for all those people that have worked so tirelessly over the last ten years to find this dirtbag and then kill him. Thank God we have a president who actually authorized the shoot to kill. That is a surprising shock to me. And I think that deserves to be said, that I didn't think that this president would actually pull the trigger well, he didn't, but have somebody pull the trigger. And he did. Congratulations, President Obama. Thank you for doing the right thing on this.”

“So thank you, President Obama, thank you, U.S. military. And America, celebrate today, roll up your sleeves tomorrow because the job ain't done,” Glenn said.

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
