Crying Walker opponent: ‘This is the end of democracy!’

Governor Scott Walker’s victory in Wisconsin quickly turned into a pity party for the left. While most took to the airways in full fledge spin mode, others had still not come to terms with the embarrassing defeat.

CNN interviewed an anti-Walker protestor live in Wisconsin following the news of Governor Walker’s victory. It would be the understatement of the century to say the man didn’t take the news too well. Glenn played the interview on radio this morning:

VOICE:  I'm just disappointed. This is the end of democracy. We just got outspent 34 million to 4 million. This was ‑‑ this was the biggest election in America and I hope you keep me on tonight because this hurts us all. Every single one of you out there in the nation, if you're watching, democracy died tonight.

REPORTER:  You're very emotional.

VOICE:  I'm very emotional because we all had a lot invested in this. This was it. If we didn't win tonight, the end of the U.S. as we know it just happened. That's it. We just got outspent 34 million to 4 million and we don't have any other resource left but the people you see here behind me. And if the people you see here behind me can't get it done tonight, it's done. And I'm just disappointed.This is the end of democracy. We just got outspent 34 million to 4 million. This was the biggest election in America, and I hope you keep me on tonight. Because this hurts us all. Every single one of you out there in the nation, if you're watching ‑‑ I'm very emotional because we all had a lot invested in this. This was it.  If we didn't win tonight, the end of the USA as we know it just happened. That's it.  We just got outspent $34 million to $4 million and we don't have any other resource left but the people you see here behind me. And if the people you see here behind me can't get it done tonight, it's done.

It’s hard to decide whether to laugh or feel sorry for this man who is clearly distraught over the loss of his beloved democracy. Fortunately for the rest of us though, we live in a republic, not a democracy. And after last night, the republic is looking pretty strong.

“Well, you know what,” Glenn asked. “Democracy is done. Democracies die all the time. Democracies, democracies have a very short life.”

“You want to see what democracy looks like, go look at Egypt. Go look at Syria. That's what democracy looks like,” Glenn continued. “We're not a democracy. That's why we're a republic. And I'm here to say happy days are here again if democracy died last night because that means the republic will live.”

In light of this groundbreaking interview, it is interesting to look at the media coverage of last night's events. Glenn was watching CNN throughout the night, and couldn’t help but notice the overwhelming amount of time they spent airing taped footage of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee instead of focusing on a historic U.S. election.

“I have nothing against the queen. I have nothing against England. They’re our allies,” Glenn said. “And the Queen – she’s one tough broad.”

“But in the middle of the election, probably the most important state election since the Missouri compromise, I don't know, I don't think I need to see footage taped earlier of the celebration of the Queen.”

As news coverage becomes more and more internationally oriented, important domestic issues and events, like the Wisconsin recall election, go under reported.

“This is the problem with our news media. This is the problem with our society,” Glenn lamented. “All of our towns are exactly the same because they're global gaps. They're global entities. I don't really care about global stuff. I don't think you do either.”

“CNN has no allegiance to the United States of America. They don't have any allegiance. We're all the same,” Glenn said.

“And when CNN decides to cover the Queen last night, and one of the biggest elections for a state in the nation's history is relegated to a little box so we can see the Queen and the pretty airplanes and the parades and her doing that cool queen wave in the bubble car, I mean I don't think I need that. But thank you CNN you make my job so much easier.”

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.
