Glenn: Christiane Amanpour is the biggest fraud I have ever seen

During an intense debate on last night’s AC360, Christiane Amanpour exploded on her fellow panelists over the humanitarian crisis in Syria.

TheBlaze reports:

Taking aim at anti-interventionists, the normally very calm Amanpour became visibly agitated and shouted down her fellow talking heads, unleashing on blogger Andrew Sullivan and making an impassioned case for U.S. involvement following the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

The initial tension became evident when Sullivan discussed separating emotion from public policy. Breaking her silence, Amanpour made it known that she fiercely disagreed with what her fellow panelists were saying about the complicated international crisis.

“I can barely contain myself at this point. … How many more times do we have to say that weapons of mass destruction were used and as bad as it is to decapitate somebody it is in no means equal?,” she rhetorically asked.

Amanpour went on to talk about the “false moral equivalence” that she feels has overtaken the discussion on Syria. “We can’t use this false moral equivalence about what’s going on right now,” she said. “They tried to do it in the Second World War, they tried to do it in Bosnia, they tried to do it in Rwanda and they tried to do it now. There is no moral equivalence.

Glenn, who first crossed paths with Amanpour during his time at CNN, was appalled to see her try to make the case for going into Syria and, in the process, contradict pretty much everything she’s ever said prior to yesterday.

“So the hapless, discredited and really unwatchable Christiane Amanpour was on CNN last night. She is back with her tail between her legs… She had delusions of grandeur that somebody would actually care what she had to say and she could go on, you know, network television and people would watch and I mean, she's absolutely unwatchable, with anyone with any kind of common sense whatsoever because they know that she is a slanted hack.” Glenn said. “So she suddenly cares about all use of chemical weapons. She suddenly cares about how we must get involved in Syria. There is a reason why I am so unbelievably passionate about this, and she has a reason to be passionate as well.”

Glenn took to Twitter early this morning to express his outrage:

“So here's the thing that I'd like to say about Christiane Amanpour. Christiane Amanpour is the biggest fraud I've ever met, and I've held my tongue since I've worked at CNN, but I'm not going to hold my tongue on her anymore,” Glenn said defiantly. “She is somebody who has a distinct anti‑Israel, anti‑Western approach. And how do I know? Well, let's just say that while we were at CNN, we might have made sure that we could back up our claims in case we ever had to back up our claims. But Christiane was one of the people that was instrumental in making my life a living hell trying to tell the truth about Islamic extremism. We had to go through her stupid Arab or Israeli or whatever her desk was, wherever it was, we had to go through her people and have every single word vetted, of people that were actually teaching people how to hate the Jews on television. We had all the videotapes. We had all the translations, and she made our life a living hell. This woman is so anti‑Western and so anti‑Jew it is remarkable, remarkable that this woman has any credibility at all.”

“Here's what the conversation is really about, Christiane, that you can't seem to understand. Just because you are not for war in Syria doesn't mean you don't care. You want a false equivalence, there it is. I don't care? Of course I care. Can you make people's lives better? Can you do anything to actually help? No. Your kind of help, the kind of help you deliver leads people to the slaughterhouses. See Syria. See Egypt. See Libya. See Tunisia. That's your kind of help,” he continued. “Now, if they happen to start gassing people in Jordan, we have a good guy. We know who the king is. We have a good guy to help. Let's see you get all upset if they start to lob chemical weapons over into Israel. I doubt you say the same thing. You're a fraud.”

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?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

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!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
