Glenn: The immigration bill threatens America’s principles

Glenn has been very vocal about his opposition to the ‘Gang of Eight’ immigration bill in the Senate and the Trojan horse bill in the House. On Wednesday, he will be traveling to Washington D.C. to speak at the open forum that will feature “border security, anti-amnesty members of Congress.”

The debate is slated for 9AM to 12PM and then again from 2PM to 5PM. In between, members of Congress will join with an already-planned Tea Party rally against the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative organizations. Glenn will be joining the event and speaking at noon.

“We have to be better than we think we can be, and on Wednesday we're going to Washington D.C., and I'll invite you to come. This is not my rally or press conference. I was asked to speak,” Glenn explained on radio this morning. “And at first I was hesitant to do it because I don't like going to Washington, and I've got so many irons in the fire and we are all so darn busy. I got to Friday and I thought, I don't think I can not be there… I believe this is the final fundamental transformation of this country.”

It is easy to point to the estimated cost of the immigration bill - $11 trillion – and express displeasure. It is easy to say that you are opposed to amnesty without border security. But there is a larger issue at play that has been talked about very little but undoubtedly has the largest implications.

“You know, in the longer term, there's no way the country survives, and it fundamentally changes our elections. It changes everything,” Glenn said. “Because these are not people who are coming in here who want to be Americans… Nobody’s talking about teaching them the principles of being an American.”

To illustrate the problem with the current state of immigration, Glenn gave of the example of Mercury Radio Arts’ chief of staff, Joe Kerry, and his family, who came to the United States to escape North Korea.

“They loved the American principles that they were escaping to,” Pat said of Joe’s family.

“Joe doesn't speak Korean. He can understand it, but he doesn't speak it. His parents would not teach him Korean because they said, ‘You are going to learn to speak English because you're going to be an American and you're going to make something of yourself,’” Glenn explained. “We don't have that culture anymore. Nobody is holding up our culture. So our culture does not take a hit this big.”

“But it's interesting because you look at the other side of that,” Stu interjected. “You have people who escape a country and come here for the principles. The other side of that – we're talking about people whose first act in this land is a crime. Crossing the border is a crime. It's the first thing they're doing here. And then we're not going to expect them to try to melt into society.”

To some degree, Glenn sympathized with the plight of the person or family who illegally entered the United States because they realized the system in their country simply did not work and they desired something more. “I'm just saying that there are those I'm sure that just needed to get out because they couldn't wait around any longer,” Glenn said.

“And to be fair to illegal immigrants, we treat it like it's a speeding ticket,” Stu continued. “I speed, some have said I would speed at times, and I do that with the acceptance of, okay, there's a punishment, it's a slap on the wrist and I accept that punishment as a risk… We treat [illegal immigration] like that. So why wouldn't they try?”

While there is no defense for those who willfully and knowingly break the law, Glenn argued that until the United States government respects the laws that are on the books, we cannot expect anyone else to.

“We don't respect our own law,” Glenn said. “We haven't placed a value on citizenship. We haven't placed a value on being here in a very long time… We're a bad parent, quite honestly.”

“The major immigration development of the past, what, five years is the president saying the laws no longer count; I'm not going to pay attention to them anymore, when it comes to certain immigrants,” Stu said. “The big development is this president ignoring our laws. So why would illegal immigrants believe that there was anything wrong with coming in here?”

“Well,” Pat said frankly, “they apparently don't.”

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?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?
