Glenn asks San Diego to take a stand for women

If you paid any attention to the news cycle during the Presidential election in November, you've heard of the "war on women" that, according to the Democrats, is allegedly being waged by the Republican Party. Unfortunately for the Democrats, their track record on women's issues is nothing shy of abhorrent.

While the GOP has it's own issues with politicians like Mark Sanford, if you take a quick trip down the Democrat's hall of shame you'll run across the likes of Anthony "tweets-his-junk" Weiner, Eliot "client #9" Spitzer, Bill Clinton (no nickname required), Bob "should be in jail" Filner, …should I go on?

One quick look at that list and you should notice one thing. All of these guys either still have power, are praised by the left, or actually have a chance or being elected in a few short months. Is that how the Democrats fight the "war on women"? By electing sexual predators who target women in the workplace to office? Or worse, in the case of San Diego Mayor Filner, stand by him and let him hold office?

This morning on radio, Glenn gave the citizens of San Diego a small tool to fight back: a small, but direct sign that they can hang in the windows of their businesses to send a message directly to Bob Filner and his supporters.

"I made a sign for the people of San Diego, all the businesses in San Diego, and I want to put it up on the web site, so you could print it out if you are in San Diego," Glenn told listeners.

Glenn explained that the women who work in businesses around the city of San Diego should not be subjected to the abuse this man brings upon women.

"I'm not going to send my staff out to San Diego to do anything in San Diego. I don't know why conservatives don't take this stance. I mean, you're accused of a "war on women". Why not stand up for women?  Here's a great way."

This establishment recognizes that we all have political differences and we serve people from all walks of life.  We also believe it's imperative for people to have standards.  The mayor of San Diego will not be served in this establishment.  We believe women should be treated with with respect.

"We got it. We understand political differences and we're serving everybody with political differences, but we are or not going to serve the mayor because we believe that women should be treated with respect," Glenn added. "Come in and argue that with me. Go ahead, argue that with me."

"It's about that the right starts understanding that the Alinsky tactics — some of them — are okay," Glenn noted. "And one of them is isolation."

And while Glenn has stated that he is against boycotts, he's certainly not against putting your money, or NOT putting your money, where your mouth is.

It's not a bad thing to avoid associating yourself with brands, people, and politicians that stand opposite of your values system.

"We used to have discriminating tastes," Glenn explained. "You see that's what they've done. We used to have discriminating tastes.  We used to say, 'no, don't play with him'."

Glenn explained that the left has flipped the nail on it's head. Labeling those who don't associate with certain lifestyles, organizations, people, political stances, etc. as haters, racists, anti-this or that. The truth is, with most of these groups, it's not that they're standing against something — they're standing for something: their values and their principles.

"They have told us they stand for women, but every time there's a chance to stand for women, every time there's a chance to say 'this guy's a total dirtbag, he is a total dirtbag that does everything he can to demean and harass women,' they don't do anything," Glenn said nothing the prominent figures on the left who have been emboldened by their supporters to remain in the public eye.

"They are not for women," he continued. "A real war on women is the war that happens when nobody's looking. When a man has power over a woman and says 'you know what, honey, you're going to put out right now'. That's the war on women.  And that is being fought every single day by women all across this country, and you know who's condoning it? That's not the conservatives. Who's condoning it as a party, the Democrats and the progressives. Every single time they have stepped up to the plate and had a chance to prove themselves as being for women, for women's rights, and for women not to be abused, they've blown it every time. Why? Because the collective is more important than the individual. They will absolutely stand up and say this woman, this woman was abused. Really? They were abused? Oh, and it's the biggest thing ever, when it serves their political purposes."

When former Missouri Senate Candidate Todd Akin made his ridiculous claims about rape, the Democrats were ready to pounce. They took Todd Akin down, and the GOP was hardly defending his comments. They knew he was out of line. But what about Bill Clinton, Eliot Spitzer, Anthony Weiner, and now, one of the worst, Bob Filner? The only reason these men are so arrogant to think that they can treat women and continue to behave the way they do is because their party emboldens their actions because they like their agenda.

Sure, Spitzer and Weiner both left office briefly, but one quickly was awarded a TV show on CNN and the other in running for Mayor of the most powerful city in the country. They're hardly ashamed.

"San Diego, I'm begging you right now…take a stand for being a better person," Glenn said. "Take a stand for treating women with respect. This has nothing to do with anything other than calling these people out and saying you're frauds. You may not be for women, if it goes against your political stand, but we are. We are."

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!"
