Glenn: Never Quit

After a long Thanksgiving break, the last thing Glenn wants to do is look at the news. No one wants to talk about geopolitical topics (unless it's how Hamas is the victims of the evil Israelis) and there are too many stories about how Obama is the greatest president since Lincoln. It makes him want to unplug, until he remembers the first lesson he learned from the radicals: overwhelm the system. In the aftermath of the election, Glenn feels overwhelmed and knows that other conservatives feel that way too. But on Monday night, he had a conversation with the audience where he explained why and how they needed to keep everything in perspective.

"After the election we feel defeated, we feel like we spent four years and got nowhere. We feel discouraged and perhaps at times don't have the will to want to bother fighting it anymore. And i have to tell you the natural man in me feels the same way. That's why I thank God for my kids. They teach me more than even my parents did. They bring everything into proper perspective," Glenn explained.

"On Saturday I went to my son's baptism. I got to baptize him and let me tell you there is nothing more clarifying than standing in the water with your child. It were as if time suddenly stood still and nothing else mattered other than that little boy and the path being set before him. And the responsibility I have as his parent to help him stay on that path."

"Is there any job more important than that?"

Glenn said he is often told he is a celebrity and an entertainer with the ability to impact millions, and in comparison to that what can everyday people do to change the world.

"If you are a parent, I have news for you: you are a celebrity, too. With little fans who look up to you. Who believe in you. Who love you unconditionally. They want nothing more than to just have even a few minutes of your undivided attention. That's where it all starts."

But that's not where it ends. Glenn explained that with voter turnout at an all time low, it was time to come up with a new plan to change the direction of the country.

"We're preaching to the choir and the choir gets it. And I've got news for you, we're not going to bring people in with just anti-Obama stuff. That's why Kerry lost in 2004. The left had everything going for them on paper: unpopular president, media lining up to bash bush, hollywood... And they lost. We have to be for something. We must present the solution. We must show people the way out how to lead," Glenn said.

"My goal is this: When you watch the news, and you don't know what to do or how to do it or how it all works -- you also say 'Yet' because you know where you can find the answer."

Glenn hoped that viewers knew that they could turn to his show as a place to find answers and solutions, a place to recharge and refocus on where things are going when the news of the day seems so overwhelming.

He also said that much like a person can make an impact on the life of their child and other members of their family, his audience also makes a tremendous impact on him and his life. He told the story of a woman who made him a quilt that he and his wife use at their home, and she saw the video and reached out to say she was glad to see it in their home. He said another viewer made him a Christmas sweater that he planned to wear this year as well.

"The time you take to spend with this program and the ways you go about showing your support makes a difference in my life," Glenn said. "No matter how big or small the gesture, if you make a difference in peoples lives - even if it's only one person, it's worth it."

Glenn said that he was going on a book tour later this week. "I know we're not going to get to chat like we did in the days when it was just a few of us hanging out at the book store.But even the short amount of time means something to me. And I hope it means something to you."

After telling the audience about his friend Marcus Luttrell, a former Navy SEAL, and his motto of "Never Quit", Glenn encouraged the audience to take the time to keep perspective on the effects they have on the people in their lives.

"I hope you haven't unplugged, because we may be wounded, we may be disorganized and a little dazed and confused. But we're just getting started and we win in the end."

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?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

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.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
