Media shamefully pro-Palestine in coverage of Israel/Gaza conflict

In watching the media coverage, one would be hard pressed to believe this conflict is the fault of Hamas. Every article focuses on the human suffering in Gaza strip, without laying any of the blame at the feet of the designated terrorist group Hamas.

"These are the time that try men's souls, and many people will shrink from service of their country at these times," Glenn said on radio.

"Last night I'm watching CNN and Anderson Cooper he's standing there and he's wearing the flack jacket, and things are really tough. I wonder where he is? He's in Gaza. He's in Gaza City, and he's talking about how bad the Israelis bombings have been on the people in the Gaza Strip, and then Dick (Don?) Lemmon, and he gets in on 'Anderson hang on just a second, and we have somebody else we want to talk to. We go to the head of the PLO.'"

"Am I watching al-Jazeera? Or am I watching American television?" Glenn said.

"The Israelis don't have a prayer. They don't have a prayer. If this is really where you're going."

"We're living in amazing times. We're living in a time where the whole world can change. And the whole world can change for the better. I happen to believe that Egypt is on a suicide mission. And I happen to believe that the Syria is on a suicide mission. Jordan is unfortunately going to be a casualty."

"In the last three years Hamas has launched more rockets than Germany launched into London in World War II," Glenn said. "Nobody is reporting what Hamas has done to Israel is more than what Germany did to London. But they say those rockets don't do any damage. Excuse me? How do they get away with that?"

"I've worked in the mainstream media. I have taken on the fierce, fierce enemies. I have spoken truth to power at the highest levels. There is nothing in in my career that has been harder than saying the truth I stand with Israel. That Israel is not the aggressor. There is nothing more difficult. It is phenomenal to see it in action. When we did The Agenda Exposed at CNN, you wouldn't believe the hoops that we had to climb through to be able to show you the exact videotape coming from the Arab world. The propaganda against the Israelis, the Jews and the Americans."

Glenn and Stu both remembered that it was very difficult to speak up in defense of Israel at both CNN and FOX News. Glenn said that at CNN almost everything had to be cleared through the Arab desk.

Glenn criticized the spin being used by the mainstream media, noting that stories are focusing on how many have been killed by the Israelis and not the terrorist group Hamas. Instead, the media says that Hamas is being disciplined in their rocket attacks.

In order to show support for Israel, Glenn and Mercury One have been providing relief to Israel with donations and needed supplies.

"We did something controversial over the weekend," Glenn said, "I'm going to continue that controversy here. We believe that those who stand with Israel are on the right side. I don't know what happens to those people but they're on the right side. That's what I believe."

"When we started Mercury One, one of the things we had under its umbrella was Israel."

"I found out on Friday. I got a desperate call. They can't afford the planes to continue to run, and they can't afford the pilots to stay out by the planes. Do you remember when we were in the Cold War they had to have the planes running all the time. It's very expensive."

"At Ramat David Air Force base we found out they had that need. So we wire transferred some money over to them. The planes are running, and the pilots have a place to stay at the planes because of Mercury One."

Glenn said Mercury One has also donated money to members of the IDF who need winter weather clothes because they are up in the cold regions of Israel. Glenn has also donated money to help buy an emergency vehicle for a hospital in Israel.

"We're doing everything we can, and putting our money where our mouth is," Glenn said.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
