Why does Glenn think Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' has "the answer"?

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes had a huge weekend at the box office – grossing over $73 million domestically. Unlike Noah (aka the “$100 million disaster”), Glenn had a chance to see the latest installment of the Planet of the Apes franchise and was quite impressed. On radio this morning, Glenn made some interesting connections between the film’s plot and today’s world.

“This is one of the best sci-fi [movies] I have ever seen. It is really good. Really good,” Glenn said. “I'm not a fan of CGI now because everything is CGI, but the CGI is so good. I don't know what's real and what's not. The apes look absolutely 100% real. You believe the apes are really apes the entire time… [And] the story is really good.”

While there is an underlying gun plot Glenn was less than thrilled about, he found the overall theme of the film to be surprisingly pertinent to what is going on in the world today. The apes and humans are initially at odds with one another, but, with time, they learn to coexist.

“[The apes] learn that not all the humans are bad. The same thing happens with the humans. The humans are realizing: Not all of us are good. There are those who want power on both sides. They just want killing. They want blood shed. They want revenge,” Glenn explained. “But not everybody does. In fact, most of them would just like to get along, just live side-by-side. It's just those who want power and control. And they are the ones poisoning the minds of everybody.”

This theme of those in power wanting to garner more and more control, while the majority of people are simply looking to co-exist struck a chord with Glenn.

“So when I saw that, I thought to myself: This is the answer… This was the answer in World War II, when people were dehumanizing the Jews. You have to get to know a Jewish person,” Glenn concluded. “In Planet of the Apes… some are bad. Some are good. The solution is getting to know each other, to talk to each other again. We are being taught not to talk to each other again. We are being taught to hate each other, to blame each other.”

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?"
