Rapper Ice-T narrates new pro-gun documentary

On radio this morning, Glenn played a clip from a new pro-gun documentary, Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire, that seeks to change the public perception of gun ownership. It couldn’t come at a better time considering Glenn went on to share a few other stories that demonstrate the sorry state of America. One town has gone so far as to implement a gun-buyback program – for toy guns.

“We have the exclusive details on a movie called Assaulted that looks really good. And it is a documentary that is coming out and could change the minds and the hearts of a lot of people on gun control and what this really means to you,” Glenn explained.

TheBlaze obtained an exclusive clip from the documentary, which is narrated by rapper Ice-T and comes out June 20, in addition to an interview with the film’s director, Kris Koenig. In the clip, 67-year-old New Orleans resident Patricia Konie has her pocket pistol forcibly seized by the police in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

Watch the clip below:

Despite the fact that Konie notified the officers at her door that she had a sufficient amount of food and water and did not want to leave her home, the police forcibly entered and seized her gun.

“They push her up against the wall,” Glenn explained.

“They smash her into like a sideboard sort of thing that's holding a bunch of dishes to grab her gun. She's got this unloaded little gun that she's showing them and so they jump all over her, knock her into the wall. They break her shoulder in I think three places. They knock out a tooth. She's all roughed up,” Pat continued. “I mean, she's like 80-years-old and they wrestle her down and take the gun from her. Just an unbelievable situation.”

In other truly mind-boggling news, a California elementary school, Strobridge Elementary, has decided to hold a toy gun exchange next Saturday, where the students of the Hayward, California school turn in a gun and receive a book and a raffle ticket to win one of four bicycles.

So basically it's a gun exchange program… for toy guns!

“Enough is enough. Really enough is enough,” Glenn said. “And you have to start demanding an end to this nonsense.”

Finally, TheBlaze reported on a story out of New Jersey that will now involve individuals involved in car crashed to turn over their license, registration… and cell phone.

According to the New Jersey Star-Ledger, this new law would assist in accident investigations – allowing police to see if a hand-held phone was a contributing factor. It is already illegal to use a hand-held phone while operating a vehicle in the state.

“License, registration and cellphone. No warrant,” Glenn said. “I know there will be people saying, ‘Well, yeah, but if they were on the cellphone…’ Provide a warrant. Provide a warrant.”

Similar to what Mayor Michael Bloomberg has done in New York City, small and seemingly harmless nudges like handing over your cell phone don’t appear to be a problem until we wake up one day and realize we have slowly given up many of our rights and freedom.

“Look, this is why I've been saying for a while: You are the new leaders of the Civil Rights Movement. This is a Civil Rights Movement. And the sooner you wrap your arms around that, the easier it will become,” Glenn concluded. “None of us want to see ourselves as that, none of us know how to do it, and nobody wants to put ourselves in a position to where we're civil rights leaders? What? Because we know what that means and we know, we know the giants that have gone before. But they weren't giants when they sat their course. Neither are we. But if we do it right, maybe someday at least our children can be proud of us.”

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.
