Seriously? Massachusetts governor says deporting illegals akin to sending Jews to concentration camps

On Wednesday, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick (D) told a group of reporters he is eager to help the Obama Administration deal with housing the influx of unaccompanied illegal immigrant children crossing the southern border. Patrick went so far as to compare deportation to the Nazi concentration camps that took the lives of several million Jews.

“My inclination is to remember what happened when a ship full of Jewish children tried to come to the United States in 1939,” Patrick said, “and the United States turned them away, and many of them went to their deaths in Nazi concentration camps.”

On radio this morning, Glenn had an idea that would force all those on the left to put their money - or, in this case, community - where their mouth is.

From House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to Georgia Congressman John Lewis (D), Patrick is not the first Democrat to condemn those who believe we need to secure our borders. The Obama Administration is currently shipping busloads of these children to municipalities around the United States, which will undoubtedly have significant social and economic impacts.

“You're telling me that this is akin to the Jews in the concentration camps? That is so outrageous,” Glenn said. “If you can show me how we naturalize people. If you can show me how we don't have criminals coming in. If you can show me how we don't cripple our schools cripple our hospitals. If you can show me these things, okay. But [the politicians are] asking me to trust [them]. And [they’re] also not including me in any of these decisions. [They’re] just shipping these people across the United States… [The] politicians must know something that I don't know.”

Glenn’s town has recently saw some 2,000 children brought in. As Glenn explained, he lives in a wealthy area that will be able to accommodate the children. But they didn’t ask for anyone to be sent there. Patrick, Pelosi, and others are saying they are willing to make the necessary accommodations, so why don’t we start sending busloads to San Francisco and Boston?

“They just did this in my neighborhood,” Glenn said. “I don't know how that's going to impact my schools. I don't know how that's going to impact our hospitals. I don't know how that's going to impact anything. I don't know how that's going to impact our crime… It's not going to be a positive… I'm not asking for it… They are. Deval Patrick is. Nancy Pelosi is. The President of the United States is.”

While Glenn believes it is time for these politicians to stop the rhetoric and start taking action in line with what they claim to believe, it will obviously never happen because there is no accountability mechanism.

“I refuse to listen to people like Deval Patrick. I refuse to listen to the governor of Maryland who has come out openly and said, ‘We have to take care of these children.’ And then behind closed doors, calls the White House and says, ‘But not in Maryland.’ Really,” Glenn asked disgusted. “I would really like to see somebody take Google Maps and find the places around these politicians houses… Let's find the places where we can shelter these people in the actual neighborhoods where these people live. They will not do it. I guarantee it.”

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.

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!"
