Attacks on Religious Liberty

"There's an attack on religious liberty like nobody's business," Glenn said on radio this morning.

To illustrate this point, Glenn brought up two stories in the news this morning. First, a religious ad is out that attacks Barack Obama for not holding to his promise to "open up our hearts and our minds to those who may not think precisely like we do or believe precisely what we believe, that's when we discover at least the possibility for common ground."

The ad claims that "After President Obama's speech calling for cooperation in order to reach common ground, the current and former presidents of the United States conference of Catholic bishops reached out to him to discuss their concerns. He ignored them."

"One of the only religious ads not paid for by George Soros," Glenn said.

The other bit of news? A George Washington University professor has filed a human rights violation claim on behalf of Muslim students who haven't even complained!

"Catholic university has been sued on behalf of Muslim students who haven't complained. George Washington University law professor who filed a human rights complaint against Catholic University this summer when it eliminated coed dorm floors has filed a second complained against the school saying the rights of Muslim students are being violated," Glenn read.

"The latest complaint filed a few weeks ago with the D.C. office of human rights focused on the school's policy of not giving official status to non Catholic worship groups. While the school has an official group for Jewish law students, a Muslim undergraduate profiled in a Washington Post article last year said he cannot create a group dedicated to Muslim worship," Glenn continued.

"So he read something in the newspaper and then decided I'm going to file on behalf of all the Muslims," Glenn explained.

"Catholic University spokesman Victor Nakas said that the school had not received a complaint about the Muslim students. Robert Tuttle, a law professor GW University who specializes in the separation of church and state says the city's anti-discrimination law has a broad exemption for political and religious groups. The law allows religious and political organizations to give preference to people of the same religion or political persuasion to promote the religious or political principles for which it's established," he finished.

"In other words, they have every right to exclude whatever they want. They don't have to put in special prayer rooms for Muslims," Pat said.

What's worse, the prayer group that was trying to form and was denied was the Muslim Students Association, a group with knows ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. But this professor doesn't really think that's relevant, nor is his connection to CAIR.

The audio read:

MONICA: Was it the Muslim Students Association, the MSA, that was trying to form on campus?

PROFESSOR JOHN BANZHAF: Yes, it was.

MONICA: Okay.

PROFESSOR JOHN BANZHAF: That's exactly what the Washington Post says.

MONICA: Do you understand that the Muslim Student Association is associated with the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States? Do you understand that?

PROFESSOR JOHN BANZHAF: I have no idea that that's true.

...

MONICA: Let me ask you this, professor. Are you working in conjunction with the Council on American Islamic Relations, CAIR, or any other group?

PROFESSOR JOHN BANZHAF: That's totally irrelevant. Why don't we talk about the legal issues. The legal issues are

MONICA: So you won't tell us whether or not you have been engaged by CAIR?

PROFESSOR JOHN BANZHAF: It doesn't make any difference. Doesn't make any difference.

Stu, Pat, and Glenn were all surprised that he tries to complain that his connections to the Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR "don't make any difference."

"Here's what you do in this information. You now know who he is. You now know exactly who he is. So if you're an attorney, you see what you can do to help. If you're a Catholic, you see what you can do to help. But you stand the line. These people are - they're everywhere. They're this easy to decode and trip up. They're this easy. It's everywhere. All you have to do is just a little bit of homework. And you trap them. And they are so arrogant," Glenn said.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."
