Another day in "Happyville": Hit job goes after Glenn over Restoring Courage event

Much of the press reporting on an event designed to show support for Israel during a crucial time has been positive - but leftist hacks weren't going to let that space be occupied by sanity and reason forever. Glenn, the 'bizarre fascist comedian' reads from one of the rare hit jobs on radio today. Check out the clip above to get the details on the latest hit job.

The full transcript from rado is below (video to follow soon):

GLENN: We have this story in the Jerusalem Post today: Glenn Beck rally could spark violence, warns Arab ministers of the knesset. Glenn Beck's Restoring Courage rally at the southern wall excavation site next Wednesday could spark conflagration of violence in Jerusalem. This according to Arab knesset members and activists. Oh, okay.

PAT: Are they saying why or what or --

GLENN: Yeah, they did. They said that this is going to be a three-night attempt to demonstrate to Israel and the world that the Jewish state does not stand alone. There are -- the minister of the knesset said there are enough racists in Israel without importing them from the U.S.

PAT: What?

GLENN: Yeah. The lessens from Ariel Sharon to the Temple Mount apparently hasn't taught them anything. This event isn't for building coexistence but to spark fires in a sensitive location ahead of the United Nations vote on the Palestinian State in September. No. No, sir. If you would have had a conversation with me, you would know that is not true. There is danger that the event will lead to people being harmed and the police should have prevented it. Maybe the police should stop the bad guys. The minister Ahmed Tal called Beck a bizarre conservative neo-Fascist comedian who is motivated only by his hatred of Islam

PAT: Well, he got you there.

GLENN: They got me every time

PAT: He got you there. Wow. He sees right through you.

GLENN: He really does.

PAT: How well does he know you? You-guys go back.

GLENN: By the way, thank you for calling me a comedian. I appreciate that. They accused Danny Damone who is -- he's kind of like -- I don't know -- a good John Boehner

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Who is involved in Beck's event -- no, he's not -- of dancing to Beck's flute playing. They got me again. They didn't check my flute at customs. I thought -- maybe they got it on camera. I put Danny in a basket and I've been playing the flute and he comes out like a snake. It's really quite neat

PAT: I will say it is difficult not to dance to your flute because you are so good at it.

GLENN: I am

PAT: When you start whaling on that thing, oh, yeah.

GLENN: There is a message in the location, especially to come to the city of David

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: That is to close to Al-Aqsa and other Muslim holy sites and the western wall. It says a lot, says a member of the popular committee of Al Bustan, one of the neighbors in Salon. I don't know him but I know one thing, this area belongs to all religions.

PAT: Then what's the problem?

GLENN: Yes, you're right.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: You're exactly right. Shafa expressed concern that the event would attempt to erase parts of the historical narrative that hold -- that the holy site is holy to Jews, Christians, and Muslims

PAT: No. Wait. They've accused us with somebody else that is trying to change history. That's not our dig.

GLENN: What do you mean?

PAT: There's somebody else that wants to change history and that's --

GLENN: Uh-huh.

MICHELLE OBAMA: Change our conversation. We're going to have to change our traditions, our history. We're going to have to move into a different place.

GLENN: Yeah, but she's not coming

PAT: That's Michelle Obama. She's not coming. So, she can't changed our history.

GLENN: He says the event will attempt to erase historic narrative that hold that the site is holy to Jews, Christians, and Muslim. Why are we the smallest people? Is their God bigger than ours?

PAT: Our God's bigger than your God. Our God's bigger than yours.

GLENN: No. It doesn't work that way. No. You know, I don't know if they know this. God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob

PAT: Just the one.

GLENN: Same cat

PAT: Yeah

GLENN: Same guy.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And gee, it's interesting that these guys know. You know what's really interesting, honestly it is -- I had to say -- this is my quote in the Jerusalem Post. In an interview with the Jerusalem Post on Wednesday, Beck advised -- see, this sounds familiar -- Beck advised his critics to watch the event before casting judgment.

PAT: What a concept.

GLENN: I know. That's really --

PAT: Huh.

GLENN: They don't even judge a book by its cover. They don't even wait for the cover to come out

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: They're like book, bad, fire! Israel's control over Jerusalem is the best thing that has happened to many people's live among the Arabs that I have met, even though they won't say it on camera. They are protected, they are safe, and they are able to live without violence. Israel has done an amazing ob of adhering to love thy neighbor and even love thy enemy. It's hard when people are trying to kill you to protect their rights. Jerusalem is an example of coexistence working. You can't deny the truth, Beck said.

Yep. So, it's another -- it's another bright and banner day here in Happyville where people are intent on doing exactly what happened last year at the Restoring Honor event where we had the Black Panthers threaten and say that they were going to cause trouble. They were going to meet me on the mall.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: I'm glad they didn't show up because I really didn't want to meet them and it wouldn't have been good and there's -- there's -- you know, really people should watch the first opening few minutes before they start to say that I'm not recognizing the history of the area, should watch the first few minutes but c'est la vie.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

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?

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.
