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."

'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long': BlazeTV hosts react to historic Roe v. Wade decision

The Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe V. Wade, and the debate over abortion rights has been given back to the states. On this historic day, BlazeTV hosts celebrate the Supreme Court's incredible decision and take a look at some of the insane reactions as the left comes completely undone.

Jason Whitlock: Today will forever stand as a pivotal moment in our nation’s history

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. The decision and the reaction to it have already revealed a lot about our people and politics. Pro-life groups celebrate, pro-choice groups call for “a night of rage,” and Nancy Pelosi just seems completely confused by the United States Constitution.

Glenn Beck reacts LIVE to Roe v. Wade ruling: 'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long'

I never thought that in my lifetime, I would see Roe v. Wade be overturned. But today, that day has come. The Supreme Court has voted 6 to 3 to return decisions about abortion to the states. But this fight isn't over. We are about to see good versus evil side by side. Many states will stand with the unborn. But others will become abortion mills. It's your turn to choose now, America!

Allie Beth Stuckey: 'Praise God, Roe v. Wade is overturned!'

I don't know about you, but I just had the most euphoric feelings. It almost seems too good to be true. I didn't think there was any way that this would actually happen, especially with all the backlash, intimidation, and violence toward the Supreme Court justices. And yet, here we are. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This is an amazing day!

Dave Rubin: Big disagreement on what happens next now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

Dave Rubin, Libby Emmons, Jeffrey A. Tucker, and David Reaboi debate what will happen in the wake of the Supreme Court’s breaking decision on Roe v. Wade. Now that abortion rights have been pushed back to the states, will there be a summer of massive riots or not? Will the Roe v. Wade ruling make America’s political polarization significantly worse?

Stu Burguiere: Here are the reasons SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade

I never thought this would happen. I never thought I would see this day. I just never ever ever ever never ever believed that Roe v. Wade would actually be overturned. I really didn't. But let's take a look at the reasons this day has finally come ...

The Rick & Bubba Show: 'This is history! Unfortunately we're 60 million lives too late'

We were live on the air when news broke of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States overturned its controversial 1973 Roe v. Wadeopinion, concluding that there is no constitutional right to an abortion.

"The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives," the syllabus of the decision reads.

As expected, the leftist outrage erupted instantaneously, fueled largely by the misinformed idea that overturning Roe v. Wade means abortion will be banned nationwide. But, as stated in the above-mentioned Supreme Court syllabus, the authority has actually been returned to individual states and their duly elected lawmakers.

One such misinformed leftist, Parkland shooting survivor Cameron Kasky, was infuriated that those awful Supreme Court justices "just voted to kill women." So he took to Twitter to urge people to go to the homes of said Supreme Court justices to "let them know how you feel."

"Go to the home of every Supreme Court justice who just voted to kill women. Let them know how you feel," Kasky tweeted.

The backlash was immediate:

Kasky decided to delete his original tweet because he is apparently "sick of republicans talking to [him]." But, unfortunately for Kasky, the internet is indeed forever:

Speaking from the White House, President Joe Biden dutifully helped spread the misinformation about the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and took the opportunity to prompt voters to elect more Democrats in November so that Congress can write abortion protections into law. Did the president just let slip the real reason Congress hasn't made any effort to start writing such laws in the nearly two months since Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion was "leaked" in early May?

CNN reporter tries to 'ambush' GOP candidate Kari Lake, IMMEDIATELY regrets it

CNN senior national reporter Kyung Lah thought she'd caught Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake off guard when she asked for an impromptu interview outside an event, but ended up sorely regretting her decision.

Lake, a former Fox news anchor, shook hands with Lah as she approached and immediately pointed out that the CNN reporter wasn't wearing a mask any more, a barbed reference to a contentious interview in October 2021, in which Lah smeared the GOP candidate as a “rising star of the right-wing and proud spreader of lies." Lah asked if Lake had “a minute to chat.”

“I’ll do an interview," Lake answered, "as long as it airs on CNN+. Does that still exist? I didn’t think so, because the people don’t like what you guys are peddling, which is propaganda. Thank you.”

Lake then walked into the event, leaving Lah utterly speechless.

It looks like Lake gained quite a few fans on Twitter:

Kari Lake has been a longtime friend to "The Glenn Beck Program." She joined Glenn last August to tell Glenn why she left the corrupt world of media, what prompted her to enter "the even more corrupt world of politics," and how she plans to make a big difference in her battleground state of Arizona.

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."
