Glenn's passionate stand in the face of evil

Old hatreds continue to rear their ugly head, and on radio this morning Glenn played audio from a Muslim cleric saying it was a real ‘pleasure’ to be waging war and jihad against Israel.

Pat translated and explained the cleric’s words, “We are in the era of jihad.  The era of jihad has come over us in the jihad, in the path of Allah, is a pleasure.  It is a real pleasure.  The companions of the prophet used to compete to perform jihad.  The poverty that we're in is not due to our abandonment of jihad, but if we could conduct one, two, or three jihadist operations throughout the year, many people throughout the earth would become Muslims and whoever we reject, whoever rejected this dua or stood in our way, we would fight against him and take him prisoner and confiscate his wealth, his children, and his women. “

“All of this means money.  Every mujahideen who returns from jihad, his pockets would be full.  He would return with three or our slaves, three or four women, or three or four children.  Multiply each head by 300 dirhams or 300 dinar and you have a good amount of profit.  If he were to go to the west and work on a commercial deal, he would not make that much money.  Whenever things became difficult financially, he could take the head, i.e., the prisoner, and sell it and ease his financial crisis.  He would sell it like groceries or those who are -- and then it cut off.  He would sell it -- he would sell these people like groceries.”

Glenn recognized the evil in those words and gave a passionate defense of Israel and why now is the time to stand with courage.

“Now is the same to stand up and so many people will not see this threat coming.  They will dismiss it again and again.  Evil, the people who are saying these kinds of things are in bed with Americans!  They are in bed with people all over the globe!” Glenn warned.

“Ask yourself how did I know?  How was it I was over in Israel two weeks before the President made his speech?  How was it I told you months ago these things were coming?  How was it I told you on the Monday before the speech, the ambassador and the prime minister of Israel didn't know they would call for the '67 border.  He didn't know.  No one knew!  Until he made the announcement.  How is it I told you on the Monday before they would divide the city?  How?  Now I'm telling you this.  It is the same message I have been bringing you for the last several months.  The left is making a push for the west, along with the Islamic extremists,” he said.

“Right now they're united to destroy the west!  And they have all of the artists.  They have the movies.  They have every piece of propaganda.  They have the news media.  They have the singing artists.  They have all of it.  We have something more powerful.  The truth, if it's coupled with courage and peace.  They have to image and reject and pretend they don't even exist, the people in the streets calling for the death of Jews.  They have to dismiss and pretend they don't exist, the people like this guy who says we'll sell people into slavery.”

“ In the end, in the end what will anyone say about you?  That you were a good businessman?  That you were a good dad?  That used to be important.  What is important now is that you do what you know is right, that you never, ever rejected truth because it was hard.  You never sat down because it was easier.  Let people say for you and your -- let people say about your name forever that you never sat down!  Because in the end that's what we're asked to do.  In the end that's all that matters.  Make your decision. “

As Glenn got more passionate about this topic, he admitted that he hates being the guy who has to be ringing the bell and calling for people to stand. It’s hard and difficult and tiring. People make fun of Glenn for the passion he has for the topic and try and belittle what he says using sarcasm. After all, Glenn loves to entertain and be funny – but for the time being he feels like he has to make a stand.

“I don't like being this guy,” Glenn admitted. “It's not what I want to do.  It's not the show want to do.  I would much rather be talking about Anthony Weiner and what a wiener that guy is.  But my children will say about me in the end, he did not sit down.

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."
