Glenn rallies support & awareness for Christians in Egypt with #IamCoptic campaign

For the past week, Glenn has passionately been trying to raise awareness of the atrocities occurring in Egypt to the Christians by the Muslim Brotherhood. Countless churches attacked, burned, and destroyed; priests arrested or attacked, women and children raped or kidnapped — yet the media remains relatively silent. But with Glenn's audience is awake and informed to the truth on the ground in Egypt, what else could be done to raise awareness?

Last night, it was clear that the situation in Egypt was weighing heavy on Glenn's heart.

It was also clear that the rest of the media isn't interested.

 

This is why Glenn started his own news and information network. TheBlaze is going to bring you the truth without an agenda. But this message needs to expand past Glenn's audience — he knows that if the American people know the truth, if they see it, they will rally behind the persecuted. So Glenn decided to start spreading the message by invoking the power of social media to spread a message of support and strength.

"Now, this seems like such a stupid thing to ask you to do at this point, but it's got to start someplace," Glenn stated. "We've just, we've put a new filter on my Facebook page and on Twitter, and just like they tried to do with the Iranians that we abandoned when they tried to stand up for freedom, at least it brought attention.  We are the people that, once you see the pictures of the starving people in Ethiopia, we do something about it.  Please help people see what's going on.  I still believe that when people see what's going on, their hearts will be softened and they will change and they will stand." Glenn hope is that the campaign will wake up men and women of faith in and outside of his audience. This isn't about one message coming from one person, it's about standing up for the truth and freedom. "The hour grows late. I don't care who you voted for. But the hour grows late," he continued, encouraging his audience to go to Facebook and Twitter to install the filter on their profile pictures. "It says, #IamCoptic. Please help get the word out," Glenn urged. The message quickly grew. Glenn's twitter timeline quickly became filled with people using the #IamCoptic filter and hashtag.

 

 

The message spread beyond the Christian community, and in some cases, beyond the religious community.

 

Glenn knows for more people to wake up and stand up it's going to take more than Twitter. It's going to take the religious leaders and churches around the country to stand with these Christians and speak out.

But more than that, people have to get informed about what's happening. One thing Glenn strongly encouraged his audience to do is watch tonight's episode of For The Record on TheBlaze TV. Half of the show takes you inside Egypt and talks to Christians who have been and are targets of the violence coming from the Muslim Brotherhood.

Glenn encouraged the audience to watch this with friends and family — watch is with your church. Share the information: tweet about it and Facebook it.

But will it do anything? Stu wasn't so sure.

"You've mentioned a lot of things here in the last couple of breaks. You've talked about linking arms, you've talked about working together, you've talked about praying, you've talked about informing yourself. You know, watching For the Record certainly makes sense. You talked about spreading the word, and all those things are completely legitimate and valuable, but wouldn't you know, the Twitter thing, you go to your Twitter account, you can put it — those are all ways to spread the word.  But I mean, I don't know how any of that stops this," Stu questioned, "and, you know, these Coptic Christians are still the victims here. They are still dying in these scenarios.  The churches are still burning down."

"Gandhi is the solution," Glenn shot back, noting that Gandhi would have made progress a lot faster if he had Twitter.

"Here's the thing: We lose if we lose our compassion — if we lose our heart," Glenn explained. "That's what's made us Americans. That when we see real true injustice."

Glenn went on to explain that this is why all of the false cries of "Civil Rights" movements lately are so bad. They are numbing Americans to seeing true injustice.

"You're deaf to them now," he noted. "If somebody says this is a civil rights case; you are deaf to them. You don't listen anymore."

"It's just become a political bomb," Stu added.

"Correct," Glenn responded. "You say genocide, you say, you know, ethnic cleansing. You don't listen to it anymore. Just go back to Ethiopia.  When we saw the pictures, Americans responded.  When we saw the pictures and we understood apartheid, America responded.  The West responded.  What stopped apartheid?  The Muslim nations?  Russia?  China?  What stopped apartheid?  The West.  How did they do it?  With guns?  Nope.  We cared.  We cared."

Glenn explained that our political divisions are becoming so extreme that Americans won't come together to stand against obvious evils because they simply don't want to associate with people they disagree with.

"People in congress, people in churches, believe me, if our churches come together, if we stand together, if we say we are immovable, if America could just in Twitter and Facebook "#IamCoptic," if that would spread over the entire world, believe me, things begin to change," Glenn continued.  "I'm not asking for military. I'm asking for people just to care. That's the first step: Just care about this. Just care. And if you don't stand up for the Coptics, they will come for you.  If you don't care about the Coptics, will you care about what's left of the Christians in Europe when it goes there? Will you care then? And do you have any chance of stopping anything then? Because you'll lose Europe. You start killing the Christians; the next thing they do is they kill the Jews. And the media will care about that, but they'll say that the Jews are gassing or killing or whatever the Palestinians, and they will ramp the rest of the world up."

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
