More shocking hate crimes: WWII veteran brutally beaten and killed in parking lot

It's been a rough news week. Not only has Glenn told you about the horrible atrocities being committed against the Christians in Egypt, back here in the U.S. senseless and brutal violence seems to be on a the rise. Earlier this week, Chris Lane, an Australian baseball player attending school in the U.S., was targeted and killed while out on a job in Oklahoma by a group of teens who claim they were simply "bored". Well, unfortunately the news cycle went from bad to worse yesterday, as Glenn informed the radio audience of two more gang-like killings that took place.

Last night, a disturbing story broke of an 88-year-old WWII veteran, Delbert Belton, being savagely beaten by two teenagers in a parking lot in Spokane, Washington Wednesday evening. Tragically, Belton passed away in the hospital from his injuries on Thursday morning.

TheBlaze.com reports:

Belton was in the parking lot of the Eagles Lodge at around 8 p.m. on Wednesday when two male suspects assaulted him for no apparent reason.

Police have released surveillance photos of persons of interest in the homicide investigation. “They are described as young African American males of average build,” KHQ reports. They are believed to be between 16 to 19 in age and were wearing black clothes, while one suspect was seen wearing a black “do-rag,” according to police.

Glenn was shocked by the story and the violence being aimed at one of America's bravest citizens — a man who fought and risked everything so these criminals could live freely in America.

"I mean, I can't imagine.  What have we turned into?  Here is a World War II veteran.  Can you imagine?" Glenn questioned.

"I mean, this guy made it," he contined. "This guy provided us with a country to live in, and he, at 89 years old, can you imagine what was going through his head? At 89 years old, some punks come up and they beat him to death in a parking lot. Now, who were these punks that did it? We don't know, but the surveillance tapes now show that they were two African‑American males of average build, between 16 and 19, wearing black clothes.  We have them on surveillance tape. You can find their pictures at TheBlaze.com.  But this is not — this is not making news, so it's not — and the president's not speaking out. Why? Why not?"

Update: Since this story broke, Police have confirmed that one suspect has been arrested in savage beating and murder of the veteran.

So now there's the young Australian baseball player who was killed, and the shooter who's social media accounts are filled with comments showing anger for 'white' people and the Zimmerman verdict. And now this…but unfortunately, it gets worse.

Another violent murder took place in Memphis, TN and has gone virtually unreported in the national media until TheBlaze reported on it yesterday:

A young white male was walking to his car on a city street late at night on August 12 when he was confronted by a trio of black individuals. They shot him dead. Police have arrested three people and charged them with first degree murder. But some in the victim’s family can’t understand why the shooting is being called a failed robbery when they say the evidence suggests something possibly more sinister: a hate crime.

Glenn explained why this morning:

"Now here's the amazing thing," Glenn began, a white guy is walking to his car on a street, it's late at night, and he's confronted by three black guys. They shoot him dead. Now, here's what happened.  The people have been arrested and charged, but the police are calling this a failed robbery.  And no one can understand why this is being called a failed robbery.  It was a hate crime.  How do they know?  Well, this guy was — he had just started his job as a nurse. He wanted to be a missionary. He's walking down the street and a car passes him. Stops. One guy gets out, comes up, shoots him in the heart. Runs, gets into the car. The 9‑millimeter shell that was ejected out of the gun, that was — what was it — 10 feet away?  I think it was 10 feet away.  I don't have it here.  I think it was 10 feet away which says — yeah, the shell casing was found 10 feet from the body.  Police are calling this a robbery, but the guy — and witnesses have it, the guy got out of the car, came about 10 feet away, shot him and got back in the car. Well, that's not a robbery. He had money on him, he had a wallet, he had a watch, he had everything, nothing was taken, and how could it possibly be a robbery? He didn't get within 10 feet. They just shot him to shoot him."

The victim of the alleged "failed robbery" still had his wallet, keys, and cellphone after being shot. The evidence hardly holds up that charge.

And don't be too surprised that not just the press, but the White House has thus far remained silent on these killings.

"It's quite remarkable how the President just doesn't say anything, just doesn't say anything," Glenn said. "In this particular case he's going to let these kind of killings and this kind of mob rule go until, I believe, it's too late."

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
