Lib politician: Cops may be shooting all the black kids in Chicago

On last night’s O’Reilly Factor, Bill O’Reilly confronted Illinois State Rep. Monique Davis (D-Chicago), who is pushing a theory she allegedly heard from constituents that Chicago police are the ones gunning down black children in the streets. This contentious interview was just the latest for O’Reilly, who has weathered quite a storm in recent weeks for the conversation he is raising about the problems facing blacks in America.

“So Bill O'Reilly is also being very, very brave. He is taking on the poverty pimps, and he has been saying since the Zimmerman thing that this is an outrage on what is happening and what is being preached,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “And he said what we have to really talk about is the decay of the black family. The black family unit, as is the white family unit, the black family unit is just way, way ahead. But our families are disintegrating. And when our families disintegrate, no matter what the progressives want to tell you, the family is the essential building block of all society.”

Earlier this week, O’Reilly played this remarkable audio from Rep. Davis during his Talking Points Memo:

DAVIS: I'm going to tell you what some suspicions have been and people have whispered to me. They're not sure that black people are shooting all of these children. There's some suspicion – and I don't want to spread this, but I'm just going to tell you what I've been hearing. They suspect maybe the police are killing some of these kids.

Her comments, made on a radio show this week, appear to condone a “destructive” rumor that, as an elected official, she should have shot down immediately. Davis, however, has refused to take responsibility for publicizing the irresponsible allegation, which enraged O’Reilly during last night’s interview.

O'REILLY: Joining us now from Chicago is Ms. Davis. Do you regret saying that, madam?

DAVIS: Well, I didn't say it, Bill. I repeated what members of my community have said to me. It is important that people realize that that was not Monique Davis' statement. I was repeating what community members have said to me, over 70%.

O'REILLY: But you didn't say, "But that's crazy and they shouldn't think this because that's not what's happening."

DAVIS: Do I have to say that? Do I have to say that?

DAVIS: Why do I have to say it?

O'REILLY: Here's why you have to say it. Number one, your credibility as an elected official, all right? And number two, people don't know where you stand. Are you buying that, are you not buying that, are you refuting that? I mean, that is destructive to the discourse. I mean, Chicago police…

DAVIS: What I am saying, Bill…

O'REILLY: …As you well know are not gunning down black children. You know that, right?

DAVIS: Well, of - certainly they are not, Bill, but based upon the history of African Americans in this country and based upon the fact that 70% of the murders in Chicago are unsolved, 70% are unsolved, people are wondering what the heck is going on. Certainly Monique Davis, who is a good friend to the police, who support the police, I believe they're our First Responders, and I respect that. But I have the right as a legislator to repeat what my community says to me.

O'REILLY: Not if it's irresponsible you don't. I hear a lot of irresponsible stuff and I don't report it.

DAVIS: Well, I don't think it's irresponsible. They will…

O'REILLY: You don't think it's irresponsible for a person to accuse the Chicago police force of gunning down children without a shred of evidence? You don't think that's irresponsible?

DAVIS: I don't think they said that. I said there was some suspicion that that could be occurring.

O'REILLY: Even if the suspicion – no, that's irresponsible without any evidence.

DAVIS: But you don't know what my response to my community was, Bill O'Reilly, because you were not there.

O'REILLY: It doesn't matter.

DAVIS: I talk to people in private.

O'REILLY: I know what you said on the radio in the full context of what was said.

DAVIS: I repeated…

O'REILLY: You didn't walk away from those comments. You didn't refute them.

DAVIS: I repeated what was said to me on a radio show in Detroit never knowing it would get national attention and perhaps…

“Yeah, who knew? Who knew that it was broadcast,” Pat asked sarcastically. “I didn't know radio signals went into other people's homes. I thought I was just saying it to the host. “

“So this magic box called a radio does what exactly,” Glenn quipped. “So irresponsible.”

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

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?

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!"
