WATCH: Anti-Obama music video goes viral in Egypt

On radio this morning, Glenn lifted the moratorium on saying President Obama’s name in order to cover a new music video that has gone viral in Egypt called “You Obama, Your Father, Mother.” The nearly four and half minute video features performer Sama Elmasry brandishing a sword next to a photo of the President, as well as photoshopped images of Obama dressed as Osama bin Laden and as a baby in diapers

“Okay, we're going to lift our ban on the use of the president's name because this one's going to be enjoyable for about 15 minutes,” Glenn said. “The [new] song that is out in Egypt is all about the president. This one you'll love.”

To get the full effect, watch the entire video below:

“So here let me tell you, let me give you the translation, because this is dramatic,” Glenn said. “This is what she says: ‘Hey, Obama. Hey, Obama. Hey, Obama. Support the terrorism, traitor, like the Brotherhood members. Obama say it's a coup. That's not your business, dirty man. Obama say it's a coup. That's not your father/mother business. And you Paterson, stop messing old b**ch woman.”

“I mean, it's pretty obvious that that's a solid tune right there,” Pat joked. “Tell me this isn't going to be in your iTunes stash later on today.”

Despite the apparent translation issues, the point of the video is obvious: Obama is not the great unifying force he claimed to be.

“Yeah, I mean, [Obama] was supposed to heal not only the oceans but all of our relationships around the world,” Stu said. “And it seems like people hate us more than ever… And I don't actually understand their complaint here. They seem to be opposed to us just being involved?”

“[The Egyptians] were for the Muslim Brotherhood when they thought the Muslim Brotherhood was going to be everything that Hillary Clinton said they would be,” Glenn explained. “That they would just be this great, open, very Jeffersonian style ruling party. And once they started, you know, not being so Jeffersonian and started ruling with an iron fist again, [the Egyptians] started going crazy.”

Glenn likened the situation in Egypt to that of Detroit. When things go wrong, everyone is looking for someone to point the finger at. In Detroit, they are blaming conservatives. In Egypt, they are blaming America.

“Once people get behind the eight ball, they're not going to blame it on themselves if somebody will give them a scapegoat,” Glenn said. “This is a very uneducated society. The Egyptian populous is hungry, and they don't have a very high education. So you have hungry run by out‑of‑control clerics. The religious organizations are doing what, you know, the Christians were doing back in the days of the knights…That's exactly what's happening. [The Egyptian people] are not thinking for themselves because they can't. They don't have the time. They're hungry. And when anybody is hungry, jobless, and they have people over them telling them, ‘You know whose fault it is? It's their fault over there. You should go get them,’ they'll do it. We're seeing it in our own country. Look what's happening to our own country.”

“This is why capitalism solves war,” Stu interjected. “This is why capitalism destroys those conflicts because once you get the prosperity in your life, you back off of those things.”

“This is why capitalism or the free market system, coupled with a society that understands moral framework and a rule of law that is blind, frees people,” Glenn added.

“And this is exactly why I've always said, ‘Hey, Obama, your father, your mother, your Israel, your Turkey, and your Qatar, all of you, go to hell,’” Pat quipped.

“Right,” Glenn concluded. “I think we've heard actual song lyrics here in America on the radio very similar to this.”

A new Pew Research Center report shows the death toll in the United States from COVID-19 is "heavily concentrated" in Democratic congressional districts.

According to the analysis, more than half of all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. occurred in just 44 (approximately 10 percent of) congressional districts, and 41 of those 44 hardest-hit districts are represented by Democrats, while only three are represented by Republicans.

"A new Pew Research Center analysis of data on official reports of COVID-19 deaths, collected by the John Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering, finds that, as of last week, nearly a quarter of all the deaths in the United States attributed to the coronavirus have been in just 12 congressional districts – all located in New York City and represented by Democrats in Congress. Of the more than 92,000 Americans who had died of COVID-19 as of May 20 (the date that the data in this analysis was collected), nearly 75,000 were in Democratic congressional districts," Pew reported.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere argued that, while the coronavirus should never have been made into a partisan issue, the study certainly makes a strong statement in favor of GOP leadership.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) once predicted the coronavirus death rate would be between 4 and 5 percent, but they've just come out with a new report and those predictions have been adjusted significantly.

According to the CDC's latest data, the fatality rate among Americans showing COVID-19 symptoms is 0.4 percent. And an estimated 35 percent who are infected by the virus will never have any symptoms. Therefore, the CDC is now estimating COVID-19 kills less than 0.3 percent of people infected.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere recalled when the mainstream media went into overdrive, hammering President Donald Trump for predicting the final COVID-19 death rate would be "under one percent."

Looks like the president was right all along.

Michigan barber Karl Manke isn't a troublemaker. He's a law-abiding citizen who did everything possible to financially survive during the COVID-19 lockdown. pandemic. Eventually, he had no other option: he had to reopen his business in defiance of Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's stay-at-home orders.

In an interview on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Manke, 77, told Glenn, "I'm not backing down" despite Whitmer's seemingly vindictive attempts to shut down his business.

Shortly after reopening, Manke was ticketed for violating Whitmer's stay-at-home order and charged with a misdemeanor. When he still refused to close his doors, the governor's office went a step further and suspended his barber license.

"It's kind of a vindictive thing," said Manke. "I've become a worm in her brain ... and she is going full force, illegally, when legislatures told her that she was out of place and this was not her assignment, she decided to take it anyway."

On Thursday, the Shiawassee County Circuit Judge refused to issue a preliminary injunction against Manke. Read more on this update here.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.
