Glenn responds to the Newtown ‘truthers’

With the one month anniversary of the school shooting in Newtown just coming to pass, it appears as though the conspiracy theorists are out in full force. According to TheBlaze, a growing group of people are claiming that the entire tragedy was a government manufactured hoax or that it never happened at all.

Unfortunately, we have come to expect ‘truther’ claims in the wake of inexplicable events (most notably after September 11). And on radio this morning, Glenn reacted to the conspiratorial stories, blaming people’s growing distrust of the government for the trend.

First and foremost, there has been a movement away from the principles of self-regulation and self-governance. The Founders were able to stipulate the rights of the Second Amendment because people understood the power of the gun. There was an understanding that it was something to help defend. Fast forward to today, and our culture has changed dramatically. Our society is no longer guided by those same values.

“Our society is sick. Our families are sick. And they're under attack. The family unit is being destroyed. God, country, family – all of them are under attack,” Glenn said. “Why is this happening? Because we refuse to recognize God, country, family. We refuse to say what my relationship to my family is. What is the importance of my relationship with God? What is my duty, my responsibility to my country? I say, ‘What is my country doing for me,’ instead of ‘What can I do for my country?’”

Furthermore, the meanings of what is the truth and what is a right have become relative because we have moved away from God. “There is no such thing as an inalienable right,” he said. “I have a right to defend myself. How do I know that? Because it happens in nature… You have a right to defend yourself because God gave you that, but there is no inalienable right anymore.”

People are more willing to believe anything because no one is pegged to the truth. There is no universal truth. No natural truth. No natural God. No God's law. “Go find the truth, and then guard it,” Glenn continued. “Because there are a lot of people coming out now who will tell you the ‘truth’ because you don't believe in anything. You don't know who to trust anymore.”

“Here's what happened in Sandy hook,” Glenn said. “He is a madman because he's unstable by birth; because he's on mind altering medications? I don't know, maybe. Because of the combination of the two? I don't know, maybe. Because he was playing these games all the time and he had found himself more and more isolated? I don't know, maybe. I can tell you this: the guns didn't make him do it. The guns were a tool. Guns have saved a lot of people. They're not inherently evil; it's what you decide to do with them.”

“I know he's responsible,” he continued. “What helped play a role? Maybe he's just insane? I don't know. But I can tell you, it wasn't the gun. And it wasn't the government. The government didn't set this kid up. The government didn't coax this kid. The funerals were real. They happened… Those weren’t actors. Those were real, real funerals, and those were real people.”

While the government did not create this situation that is not to say it did not play a role in the aftermath. “Don't consume any of the poison… Because that's exactly what it is,” Glen said. “Here's what the government did do – exploited it. The government is great at not wasting an emergency… They waited and they exploited it. It's not a conspiracy. It is a danger to the Republic.”

"I fear we're going to be so fragmented because no one will trust each other,” Glenn concluded. “If you stand for something true, understand that just like all the people that stood for real truth, you will be totally alone in the end. May God give us all strength to remain standing and remain true.”

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
