Does Glenn stand by 'controversial' comments? Yup

The media is going off on Glenn for daring to criticize the Marxist, anti-Capitalist protesters and explaining that these are the people America should be worried about. Not the useful idiots who don't know why they are down there or are having sex in tarps - but the people carrying around bankers heads on a pike and calling elected officials threatening to shoot and kill innocents if the taxes on the rich are not raised. Glenn explained on radio today.

Yesterday Glenn said, "They will come for you and drag you into the streets and kill you. They are not messing around. Those in the media, and I say this ‑‑ I am included in this: They will drag us out into the streets and kill us. If you're wealthy, they will kill you for what you have. You can't ‑‑ you cannot tolerate this kind of stuff. You certainly don't encourage it."

The liberal media as decided to ridicule Glenn for making these comments - but why did he say them? Could it be because, historically, communism and revolution like that being called for on Wall Street has led to chaos?

"Let me explain," Glenn said. He then went through a long list of violence committed by communist and Marxist revolutionaries.

First, Glenn criticized the revolutionary icon Che Guevara, pulling out a book that records his involvement with the killing of people. Next, the Ukraine, where seven million starved to death.

"They shot people as they were trying to go into the fields just to eat anything. They were eating mud, they were eating rocks, they were eating anything they could. Seven million people in one year Marxists killed in the Ukraine," Glenn said.

How about the number dead by Mao and his communist policies? 60 million.

Glenn continued, "Stalin, you know what Stalin's main job was? Stalin's first job with Lenin was to go and make sure that you kill all the shop owners. You kill all the merchants. You kill all the capitalists. You take the farms and kill the farmers. Do you know why people starved to death in the Ukraine? You know why socialism never works? Because they kill all the people who know how to make things. They kill all the industrialists. They kill them all. They drag them in the streets and kill them. Do you know why Russia couldn't keep time? Do you know why all of ‑‑ I'm a watch collector. Do you know why I have two Russian watches, two Soviet watches. One of them was given to me as a gift from a former KGB agent who put it in my hands and was practically crying saying, 'Please keep telling the story; I know who these people are. I used to be one of them.' You know why they ‑‑ all their watches suck? Because they killed all the watchmakers. That's what they do."

"It is always the same way. Now, those are Marxists," Glenn said.

Glenn then moved onto the French Revolution and collectivism.

"How did that end? Do you know what in the end, they were beheading children? They got to the point to where Robespierre was killed. They got to the ‑‑ by the time they got to the end, the crowds were horrified by these revolutionaries because they just kept going. They just kept going. And everybody betrayed the revolution," Glenn said.

"Once you start down this hate road, it just doesn't end. First you've got to get rid of these guys, then you've got to get rid of these guys, then you've got to get rid of these guys. It just never ends. They were beheading little children at the end. The crowds were horrified. They first were cheering, then they were horrified."

So Che, Mao, Stalin, the Soviet Union, the French Revolution, and more all ended in death, violence, and murder. And note that Glenn was able to completely destroy the idea of benevolent Marxism/Socialism/Communism utopia without even focusing on Nazi Germany.

Now why does he think that this could happen in America? Because he's played audio of all the people leading the progressive movement advocating the Marxist policies that have led to it all happening before, and now people are in the streets calling for revolution, an end to capitalism, and a new society.

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.
