Glenn played some incredible audio this morning on the radio program of radio commentator Paul Harvey from 1965. Glenn knew Harvey, and described him as “absolutely inspired of God."
Last night on GBTV, Glenn explained to viewers that America has crossed over into new territory.
“The progressives, I believe, have realized their dream. They have taken those baby steps," Glenn said. “It is time to stop studying progressives."
Glenn challenged those that don't think the progressives have accomplished their goals to “listen to the prophetic words of radio commentator Paul Harvey."
The audio is of Paul Harvey explaining how he would destroy us (America) if he were Satan...
If I were the devil... I would not be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree — thee.
So, I would set about however necessary to take over the United States.
I'd subvert the churches first, and I would begin with a campaign of whispers.
With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: "Do as you please."
To the young, I would whisper that the Bible is a myth. I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around. I'd confide that what's bad is good and what's good is square.
And the old, I would teach to pray after me, "Our Father, which are in Washington..."
Then, I'd get organized, I'd educate authors in how to make lurid literature exciting so that anything else would appear dull and uninteresting.
I'd threaten TV with dirtier movies, and vice-versa.
I'd peddle narcotics to whom I could. I'd sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. I'd tranquilize the rest with pills.
If I were the devil, I'd soon have families at war with themselves, churches at war with themselves and nations at war with themselves until each, in its turn, was consumed.
And with promises of higher ratings, I'd have mesmerizing media fanning the flames.
If I were the devil, I would encourage schools to refine young intellect but neglect to discipline emotions—just let those run wild. And before you knew it, you'd have drug-sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door.
Within a decade, I'd have prisons overflowing, I'd have judges promoting pornography. Soon, I would evict God from the courthouse, then from the schoolhouse and then from the houses of Congress.
In his own churches, I would substitute psychology for religion and deify science. I'd lure priests and pastors into misusing boys and girls and church money.
If I were the devil, I'd make the symbol of Easter an egg and the symbol of Christmas a bottle.
If I were the devil, I'd take from those who have and give to those who wanted until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious.
What'll you bet I couldn't get whole states to promote gambling as the way to get rich?
I would caution against "extremes" in hard work, in patriotism, in moral conduct.
I'd convince the young that marriage is old-fashioned, that swinging is more fun, that what you see on TV is the way to be.
And thus, I could undress you in public and lure you into bed with diseases for which there is no cure.
In other words, if I were the devil, I'd just keep right on doing what he's doing.
Paul Harvey, good day.
“That is unbelievable," Glenn said after listening to the audio.
Pat noted the line, “I would lure you into bed and give you disease to which there is no cure," was way ahead of it's time. “That wasn't the case in 1965. We had no idea about AIDS—that's amazing," he said.
“When you listen to that now you say, those are our problems," Glenn told listeners. “Those are the problems of our society. Those are the ills."
Glenn pointed back to what he calls “Phase 1," the transformation of the nation and to weaken it to the point of crisis. “If you listen to what he just said, that's phase 1," Glenn said.
Glenn explained that just how the devil wants your soul forever, by creating a system for ours to collapse into, people would end up begging for the things America once stood against.
“What you would never, ever ask for today, I'm going to make it your idea. If I'm the devil," Glenn explained, "I make you beg for it."
