Egypt's War on Women

Yesterday, the Democrats made a historic decision to remove God from their party platform. In 2000, God was mentioned four times in their platform, seven times in 2004, and once in 2008.

Glenn reacted this morning on radio saying, "We have seen from this administration God taken out of almost everything. God has been removed and really God is under attack. And they will tell you, "We're God‑fearing people." Whatever. But their god is government. In fact, play the DNC video from last night. Government is the only thing that we all belong to."

This was made evident last night, the first night of the DNC, with a telling video that stated the following:

"We are committed to all people. We do believe you can use government in a good way. Government's the only thing that we all belong to. We're different churches, different clubs, but we're together as a part of our city or our county or our state. And our nation."

When questioned about it on Fox News, Sen. Durbin simply referred to questions about removing God from the party platform as "harping on trifles."

But, that's just the first problem with the Democratic platform's new stance on God and faith.

"The second thing on God is they are now taking Allah and holding Allah up. They are holding the Muslim Brotherhood up to a standard that is unreasonable," Glenn said. "They are holding people now, you want to talk about God, you want to talk about the attack on God, well, let's talk about what's happening in Egypt right now. What is happening in Egypt? The last synagogue in Egypt? The new president just said, "For the Jews' protection, we're going to have to close this down, but only for their protection." Oh, is that you, Poland? I'm sorry, is that you, Nazi Germany?"

"Try being a Christian [in Egypt]," Glenn added, noting the reports coming out of the Middle East about Christians being crucified by extremists in Egypt.

But still, somehow Sen. Durbin manages to claim asking for the reasoning behind God being removed from the platform, "harping on trifles."

"God is not a trifle," Glenn said.

The same people removing God from their platform are also accusing conservatives of "waging a war on women."

"They want to talk about women and women's rights," Glenn started, let me tell you something: They are focused on the war on women - roughly translated: Christians hate women and want to beat them for no reason."

Glenn went on to read "Biblical scripture" of what the left likes to use against women to accuse Christians of being anti-women's rights. He read lines about husbands being allowed to discipline their wives with violence and bodily harm, among other things.

Oh, the only problem was that Glenn was actually reading exact quotes from a big television personality out of the Middle East, our new "beloved friend" Egypt, where he is explaining his version of Islam and what it means now in Egypt for women in 2012.

This is the quote:

If I could say to every husband: Do not rush to beat her whenever a problem arises. God said, ‘Admonish those of them on whose part you fear disobedience, refuse to share their beds, and beat them.’ One should not beat out of anger.”

You should only beat a woman in order to “discipline” her, not because you want to.

Now, if your wife utters the name of God, the beating must stop. Obviously.

But, the disciples said—if your wife does something wrong, like spies on you –you should “give her a shove that is painful.”  This was done in order to discipline her. Not because they enjoyed beating or inflicting bodily harm.

There is a war on women going on in the world today, but it's not being waged from the Republican Party or from the Church.

As much as the far left and the media would like to make Christians look like the guilty party in this war, they're not. In fact, throughout history Christians have largely led the charge equal rights for women. It's the countries that reject faith in God and, in particular, reject Christianity, that you see rights begin to disappear from women and minorities.

If the left had a country that embraced Christianity and religious freedom and persecuted women and minorities, don't you think they would constantly use it as an example? Instead they're obsessed with a thirty second audio clip of Rep. Todd Akin making a stupid comment.

The fact is, there isn't a war on women's health, abortion, birth control, or any of the other ridiculous claims coming from the far left, like Glenn pointed out on radio this morning. The war on women is in the Middle East.

"There is a war and it is real and it is happening in Egypt, under the leadership that this president and his administration has been praising and encouraging and now sending your hard‑earned tax dollars over to support! He has cheerleaded for these people," Glenn added.

When the Democrats talk about a war on women, remember the quote Glenn read on air this morning. The quote read by one of the men who was encouraged by this administration and is under leadership receiving funding from American tax dollars now.

"While they're talking to you about what Mitt Romney might do in your fallopian tube, know that they are rooting for the monsters of the Arab Spring in Egypt. They are bringing them into the White House. They are pulling positive mentions out of Israel in their platform. They are removing God from their platform, and real women right now are being beaten, legally, by the people they have helped put in power. That is the truth. That is what we fight against. That is what we stand against," Glenn told listeners.

"And if you don't like it, bury your head back in the sand, but know if you do that as a people, America, we will be held responsible for a thousand years of darkness," he added.

"It's just that clear."

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."
