Champion of Nonsense Chris Matthews compares Cruz to Father Coughlin

Glenn may have given up on devoting any of his time or energy into caring what Chris Matthews says or does, but this morning he had to play some audio that was so ridiculous Liberals should even question how this man has a job.

"The way you can spot a tyrant or a dictator is anybody who tells you to shut up, sit down, be quiet, anyone who doesn't think that you have a right to speak," Glenn told listeners. "I don't mind Chris Matthews and MSNBC — they have a right to go out and say all this stuff. I support them 100%. I would never boycott them. I think boycotts are for girls, quite honestly. You put your money where your heart is."

"That's really an offensive thing to say about girls," Stu quickly interjected. "They are for cowards."

Glenn's point is this: MSNBC and Chris Matthews does everything it can to silence and marginalize those that think outside their ideology.

On Wednesday, Chris Matthews made the claim that Senator Ted Cruz "fits the tradion" of notorious Nazi sympathizer Father Charles Coughlin.

"I want you to listen to Chris Matthews and what he said about Ted Cruz," Glenn said.

Matthews: This guy goes pretty far but I think he fits the tradition of Father Coughlin and McCarthy and, of course, and maybe to a lesser extent Pat Buchanan and then of course O'Reilly.  These guys are hard rightwing guys. They look a lot like — they have what we call a black Irish look to them. They don't smile much.

After mocking Mathews's remarkable inability to speak while anchoring a television program, Glenn clarified who Father Coughlin was for those who aren't familiar.

"Father Coughlin is a progressive," he noted. "A socialist progressive."

Coughlin ran Social Justice Magazine and was a Nazi supporter. Needless to say, Ted Cruz hardly fits the bill. Not to mention, somehow Matthews managed to group Father Coughlin, McCarthy, Buchannan (a former MSNBC employee) and Bill O'Reilly into the same category.

"It's really amazing," Glenn described of Matthews's statement.

Pat noted that Matthews attempts paint them all as old, white conservatives to which Glenn quickly pointed that that Ted Cruz is Cuban.

"He's hispanic and Cuban," Glenn said.

"It's amazing that he can get away with this night after night, too. He does this kind of stuff night after night."

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?"
