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.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:

Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg has surged in the polls in the past month.

With former Vice President Joe Biden dropping below far-left presidential candidates such as the unapologetically socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), and the almost equally extremist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass), Democratic voters seeking a more moderate alternative are setting their sights on Mayor Pete.

But are Buttigieg's policies actually moderate? Not even close, Glenn Beck said Thursday on the radio program.

"[Pete Buttigieg] wants people to see him as a moderate. The mayor of a Midwest city in a red state ... and he's going for the middle, even though he is not a moderate candidate in any way," said Glenn.

Here are just a few example of where Buttigieg stands on the issues:

  • Supports late-term, partial-birth abortion
  • Eliminate the Electoral College
  • Buyback program for assault weapons
  • Raise the federal minimum wage to $15/hour
  • Expand Medicare
  • Decriminalize illegal immigration
  • Pay for infrastructure through changing taxes on corporations, the wealthy
  • Study reparations
  • Legalize marijuana
  • Increase existing taxes on upper-income Americans
  • Cancel some student debt
  • Don't use tariffs to pressure countries

An official at the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations' health agency, has issued a warning, calling the coronavirus "the worst enemy you can imagine" and more of a threat than "any terrorist attack," during a media briefing on Tuesday.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO's director general, said that a vaccine for the coronavirus will likely take 18 months to develop. The virus has reportedly killed hundreds and infected tens of thousands of people, primarily in China.

"To be honest, a virus is more powerful in creating political, social and economic upheaval than any terrorist attack. It's the worst enemy you can imagine," added Ghebreyesus.

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck noted that the same agency in charge of developing this life-saving vaccine, has taken the time to officially change the disease's name to COVID-19, citing the concern of "stigmatizing" any specific geographical location, individual, or group of people.
