MUST WATCH: Radio guests explain amazing story of tragedy and forgiveness

There are few things more powerful than forgiveness, and on today's radio show Glenn invited two men on to share their inspiring and almost unbelievable story. In 2007, Chris Williams and his family were driving home when they were struck by a drunk driver, Cameron White. In the accident, Williams lost his wife, two young children, and his unborn son. In the moments after the accident, Williams knew that rather than harbor anger at the driver, he would forgive him. Today

"The story of these two men is absolutely incredible. It is a story of forgiveness and forgiveness of yourself and a willingness to let it go. And what a powerful story it is," Glenn said.

" So right after I'm aware of what's going on. I mean, certainly there's got to be an element of shock. I'm not dealing the injuries I had sustained, but I was aware enough to desperately check for a pulse on my wife's wrist and there was none. And I could see that she had an injury on her elbow that wasn't bleeding and so it just started ‑‑ things started to add up that she was gone. I just ‑‑ that no amount of CPR or emergency assistance would bring her back," Williams said of the accident.

"I look back and I see my son Benjamin just kind of leaning against the door and he looked so very peaceful as if he was asleep and I could see a huge gash on his head that once again wasn't bleeding and if you've cut your head at all, you know that those things bleed a lot and so just once again this thought that he too was absolutely gone. And then as I looked to see my daughter, she's actually leaning forward with her hair draped over her eyes, her face and, you know, I couldn't see any physical injury. But once again I just had this thought that she too was gone. And that was the extent of it."

"How did you just tell me that story? My gosh, I'm sitting here as a dad and Jeffy's doing the same thing. How did you just tell me that story?" Glenn asked after hearing him describe it with such calm.

"I have a ‑‑ I have a core belief that they live on. I mean, this is a moment where I'm dealing with, you know, looking at their bodies that they've left here, but in a sense they've ‑‑ they're entering a place that I would ‑‑ I call Paradise, right, just a place of peace. And as I've reflected on that moment so many times and the peace that came when I decided in that car to let it go, it has just, it has created this foundation in my life that I can ‑‑ that I can talk about it and reflect on it and remember my wife and my kids in a way that reinforces that they're not gone, that they live on," Williams said.

White, who was seventeen at the time, described what he experienced to Glenn: "In high school, Skyline High School and I was just a normal kid who liked to rebel, and I was at an acquaintance's house. I had some alcohol. I had some friends I was going to meet up with and they called me, let them ‑‑ let me know that they were going to be at a Baskin Robbins. So I went there in hopes to find them. They weren't there. So I called them and asked where they were. They were somewhere else. So they said come over and meet us. And I just felt tipsy at the time, but the last thing I remember is pulling out of the Baskin Robbins, and the next thing I know I'm walking away from my overturned vehicle and I'm looking back and trying to figure out what happened. All I know is something terrible happened."

Again, Glenn could not believe that this story was being told with such calm and how, shockingly, the two had a close relationship.

Williams said their relationship was fantastic, and that together they are spreading a message of redemption with their book "Let It Go: A True Story of Tragedy and Forgiveness".

I see the same thing in Cameron and so being with him, it's ‑‑ there's a wonderful expectation for the future. It's almost like I get to kind of watch him fulfill I think the expectation that the judge saw as well, is that he has an incredibly bright future, he's an incredibly talented individual and I think that's really this message of redemption and had I not let that go, I would have missed out on this opportunity to do that.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere were joined by Pat Gray to discuss "woke" Olympic athletes.

In this clip, the guys discussed how "bravely" some athletes are for threatening to protest the national anthem, for twerking on stage, and for showing off how woke they are.

Glenn reminded America of actual bravery at the Olympics when Jesse Owens won the gold medal at the Berlin Olympics. "He [Owens] was oppressed," Glenn said.

Political commentator Bill O'Reilly joined the Glenn Beck radio program on Friday made an important prediction about President Joe Biden's chance of reelection in 2024.

O'Reilly told Glenn that former President Donald Trump was brought down because of COVID. "if COVID had not appeared, O'Reilly stated, "he [Trump] would have won reelection."

O'Reilly went on to predict that like Trump, President Joe Biden would lose reelection because of COVID. People saw a president who could not put out an intelligent fact-based message about COVID and people will remember that," he explained.

O'Reilly later added that "Trump and Biden are one-termers because of COVID."

Critical race theory: Marxism is a religion

Marx didn't actually tell his followers that the system needed to be destroyed. And it's not what Marx actually believed. Very few Marxists actually understand what Marx laid out.

Marxism isn't a list of demands and instructions. It's Marx's attempt to tell the future. Some of it he got right, most he got wrong. For example, he predicted the rise of automation.

Believe it or not, Marx was not an anti-capitalist. If anything, he revered it.

In a letter to Engels, he complained that too many people misunderstood his message, that his plan is to merge with capitalism. To make it new. He wanted to reify his brand of socialism, reify is a Marxist term, actually. It basically means to make an abstract idea concrete.

Marx didn't hate capitalism. He actually thought it was necessary. And he knew communism would never happen without the aid of capitalism.

Marx didn't hate capitalism. He actually thought it was necessary.

From there, he takes these ideas to some weird conclusions. Horrible conclusions. The main one being revolution.

What does the first phase of the Marxist revolution look like? How will we know if it has started? How can we tell if it's already begun? Marx's idea of the "dictatorship of the proletariat," where the working class would rise up in revolution and earn their freedom.

But what did Marx mean by freedom? Like so much of Marxism, it involves giving up your individuality, in service to the collective: "Only in community with others does each individual have the means of cultivating his gifts in all directions; only in the community, therefore, is personal freedom possible."

That's from his book The German Ideology, which he co-wrote with Friedrich Engels, the guy who paid all of his bills: "Free competition, which is based on the idea of individual freedom, simply amounts to the relation of capital to itself as another capital."

His idea here is that capital ruins any idea of freedom or individuality. And competition is what he uses as proof. In other words, Marx's definition of freedom has nothing to do with actual freedom, freedom as we know it.

He wrote, in Capital: "It is not individuals who are set free by free competition; it is, rather, capital which is set free."

He's saying that Capital manipulates our individual freedom and forces us to exploit ourselves. For someone who didn't believe in God, he sure had some fanciful ideas about the forces that control the universe.

For someone who didn't believe in God, he sure had some fanciful ideas about the forces that control the universe.

Marxists have always argued that capitalism is a religion. That our debt to capital is no different than our debt to God. Critical Theorist Walter Benjamin wrote an entire book called Capitalism as Religion, and wrote that capitalism is "the first case of a cult that creates guilt, not atonement."

There were many strains of socialism before Marx. There were entire movements, named after socialist and anarchist philosophers. But Marx was the one who figured it out, with the help of a rotating cast of people paying for his sloth, of course.

Marx's influence on socialism was so profound that socialism was practically re-named in honor of Marx. Marx has been deified.

He created a utopian society. Very hypothetical. It requires a working class that is devoted to daily readings of The Communist Manifesto.

This assumes that people who work all day — at a real job, where they can't just sit on the couch all day as Marx did — even have the energy to read dense theory when they get home.

Marx made a religion.

The Capitol riot was foolish and tragic, but Pelosi's Select Committee "investigation" on the January 6 "insurrection" has devolved into a show trial complete with bad tears and bad acting. But this is just a charade designed to distract us.

What's going on behind closed doors is truly nefarious. The Biden White House and the U.S. national security apparatus are seizing that event to redefine domestic terrorism and expand the powers of government to prevent it. There is an alarming blueprint for sweeping government action called the "National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism," put together by the National Security Council.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the collusion between the Biden administration and Big Tech to surveil, root out, and silence America's deplorables – all in the name of national security.
