Is this the most controversial thing Glenn has ever said?

Below is a transcript of Glenn's monologue from Monday's Glenn Beck Program.

I want to talk to you here about something that has been probably the most controversial in my audience of anything that I’ve ever talked about, and that is surrender, surrender, but not the way everybody thinks. I think that we have got to be more like Martin Luther King than Patton. Otherwise, we lose.

Remember, the theory is top-down, bottom-up, inside-out. And we’re starting to see the radicals bring that bottom up. There are poking every, the border, you’ll hear about that coming up in just a second, but it’s bad. Here’s what’s coming next for the American people, I believe. These are the things that the average people will begin to feel if you’re not already in these.

You begin to feel invisible. The average person, and this is Americans left, right, center, but not the people who are centered in politics. Those who are driven by politics will not feel this way because they will be trying to grab power. This is the average Democrat, the average Republican, the average independent, who are not geared towards politics. They have just let the parties dictate who they are, but soon they will see that neither party is telling them the truth.

And so those people who are just the regular neighbors that we had, not the politicians or the people who are in the parties, they will begin to feel invisible – nobody’s listening to me, nobody sees my plight. They will work harder for less. We’re all probably doing that already. They’ll begin to wonder why. Why am I doing any of this? Our kids will wonder why am I going to school, and I’m going to rack up all these bills? Why?

Most importantly, the next one, they will see others not abiding by the rule of law. When that one happens, it’s trouble, because this, why am I doing that when I could just steal it, when I could just take it, when I can just play the party game, and I’ll just take it? I’ll control others. That’s when things really come out of control, a crisis hits, and we will look for something or someone to unify. This is what’s coming now. This is the new chalkboard.

So what is the answer? Here comes the controversial answer, and I don’t think it’s really, shouldn’t be all that controversial. Have to have faith, and you add to faith virtue and to virtue knowledge and to knowledge moderation, moderation patience, patience reverence, reverence kindness into charity. This comes from 2 Peter, and this is the path.

We have to start just increasing our faith, have enough faith to be able to say okay, I know God’s got it under control, and I’m just going to be a virtuous person. I’m just going to live by the principles that I know I’m supposed to live, and I’m going to add to that knowledge. I’m going to do as much homework. You’ve already done, hopefully you’ve done this and this.

Now, moderation, I’m going to downsize my life. I’m not going to be extreme in any way. And then patience, I’m going to be patient with the people who drive me out of my mind. I’m going to have reverence for something. Let me ask you, how many things do we have reverence for? Do we have reverence for anything anymore?

Reverence, kindness, and charity, now, that’s the recipe, but here’s my job, I think. I don’t even think we have faith anymore. I don’t think we have faith for anything, which is why I started Mercury One. Mercury One is what? What do they do? Charity, but they do charity, that’s at the bottom of the list. No, charity causes you to do one thing, and you’ve felt it if you’ve ever been to any of our events, anything, the Restoring Honor, Restoring Love, any of these things.

When you were involved, you remember what it feels like to be around people who are good, what it feels like to be a part of community. And that remembrance does one thing, it gives you hope, hope that something is going to happen, something good is around the corner, there are good people. You remember that, and you’ve seen it in action. So you remember, and you think there is hope, okay, we’re going to have hope.

Hope leads to faith. And from faith, then you start this cycle, and you go down. And it repeats itself. This is why I’ve been saying people are going to start feeling invisible. We have got to get together with the people, the left and the right, that are not centered on politics but on principles because they feel the same way that we do. They’re lacking faith or hope in anything, in anything. That’s why goodness, decency, kindness, charity is the answer.

Anger, politics, protests, guns, all of that will only make that top come down and swallow up the bottom, and it’s 70 years of darkness. We have one chance to do it and do it right, and I really truly believe, I’ve said this from the beginning, you are the audience that will make the difference. You are the group of people that will actually end up in the end saving the country from profound darkness, but we have to follow a pattern.

That’s a pretty good pattern. What do you say we work on charity, and we find groups of people that will work and serve people who think that we’re haters? Let’s find those people and serve them, not asking anything in return, just love them. It will grow hope and faith, and then you’re off to the races.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."

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.
