Salt Lake Tribune attacks Glenn with piece on Independence Museum

On Saturday, the Salt Lake Tribune published an article by Alexandra Karl called “Glenn Beck’s Nazi Exhibit” that attacked the Independence Through History Museum Glenn curated for Man in the Moon.

Let’s just say, the author clearly didn’t do her homework – the article is filled with a tremendous number of factual inaccuracies, including misstating the name and location of the event, in addition to sloppy reporting that misidentified several of the artifacts in the museum.

Perhaps most frustrating, however, is the ever-apparent fact that Karl, who, according to her bio is ‘an art historian and educator’ living in Salt Lake City, clearly did not bother to attend the Museum herself, and her reporting obviously suffered as a result.

On radio this morning, a furious Pat decided to go line by line through the article to point out all of the errors in the piece. “Glenn, you brought up something yesterday that I looked into after the show, and I just haven't been able to let go of. I can't let go of it until we get this resolved,” Pat said angrily.

“Let it go,” Glenn pleaded. “This comes from Pat. Yesterday, he was obsessing about this all day on the plane.”

In the article, Karl refers to the event as Man on the Moon instead of Man in the Moon and writes that the event took place at the Rio Tinto Stadium. In actuality, the event took place at the USANA Amphitheater (the article was updated on Monday to reflect this mistake).

“Now, even if you had a passing interest in accuracy and/or truth and you were writing what you considered to be a scathing exposé on someone, wouldn't you at least try to get the location of the main event right,” Pat asked. “She couldn't so much as Google where the event took place?”

“No, not necessarily, not if I was a journalist in today's world,” Glenn quipped. “She doesn't care.”

Ultimately, Karl surmises that based on the items in the museum, Glenn must be a Nazi sympathizer. “Surely harboring such items adheres to a personality cult and suggests a sympathizer rather than a critic,” she writes.

“So here Alexandra moves beyond simple buffoonery into defamation territory, suggesting that Glenn, who's fought so hard for Israel, for Jews, he's fought so hard he received the Defender of Israel award… a guy whom Benjamin Netanyahu referred to as a ‘friend of Israel’… is a Nazi sympathizer,” Pat said. “That goes beyond plain unadulterated stupidity… that’s character assassination and defamation territory.”

Despite Pat’s outrage, Glenn was not particularly offended by the incident. Obviously, Karl is entitled to her opinion and she is entitled to write and publish her opinion, but one could only hope that for the sake of its readers, the Salt Lake Tribune uses this as a learning experience when choosing what to publish for public consumption.

Editor's note: This article has been updated for clarity. It originally referred to Karl as a reporter for The Salt Lake Tribune, which they have said on their Twitter account is inaccurate and emphasized she is simply a reader who contributed a piece and therefore they aren't responsible for the inaccuracies in the content. But as Stu said...

 

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?"
