I want to thank you for watching tonight. I want to warn you that tonight you’re going to see some very disturbing images that you won’t see on other outlets, but I think it’s really important. In fact, I spent a lot of time this weekend debating with myself whether or not to show them to you, and I came down on the side of we showed the pictures of the Holocaust, and if we hadn’t have shown the pictures of the Holocaust, I don’t think anybody would believe it. And as it turns out, because we don’t show the pictures of the Holocaust because they’re too horrible to look at, we no longer believe it.

I want to show you these pictures tonight not because of their brutality but because they don’t fit the narrative, and that’s why nobody else is showing them. It’s a narrative that is hopelessly lost in politics and completely detached from the old standard that we used to use. We used to use the standard of good and evil. It was very pretty basic, good and evil. Whether it’s due to wistful blindness or ignorance, but we have lost the ability to be able to distinguish between these two.

And I want to show you an example. These are things that are just off the top of my head that are pretty easy to be able to say, some of them. Swearing used to be the old standard. Swearing is wrong. It’s wrong. Don’t talk that way. Don’t talk that way in front of a woman. Don’t talk that way in front of, you know, your parents, whatever. Don’t talk that way. And it came from the Judeo-Christian values. But now swearing, I don’t even know if we teach that that’s wrong anymore.

Feed the hungry, is that good? Is that clearly in the good category now? Because there are people now who are angry that we fed the hungry down at the border. So is it good? Is it clearly good to feed the hungry?

How about greed? There are people who are libertarian that say greed is good. Ayn Rand would say greed is good. Is it good or is it evil? Genocide, is it good or is it evil? Lying, forgiving one another, slavery, comfort the sick…may I just suggest that there are a couple of things that are pretty absolute, and I would say feeding the hungry, feeding the hungry is always good.

Forgiving is always good. Comforting the sick, always good. Lying, yeah, that dress does make you look fat – sometimes, not sure. Swearing, I think it’s wrong, but I’m not going to – greed, you can go both ways on that. I think greed is wrong, but I understand what Ayn Rand was saying. But when you look at evil, on this list, I will tell you at no time is slavery or genocide anything other than evil, at no time.

We can debate the fact that, you know, we have the death penalty. Well, should we kill those people? We can debate that. We can debate that. But if I said we’re going to kill everybody who is this race, color, or creed, and we’re just going to wipe them all off, everyone would know, I think you’re in the evil category, right?

Slavery, the same thing, you don’t have a right to enslave anyone. Well, both of these things are happening in the world today, and they’re both happening with exactly the same people, and we’re not willing to call it by its name. Here’s how you know. It’s really interesting to me, if you believe in evil, and I do, I believe in good, and I believe in an opposing force of evil. Not everybody does, but if you do, you know that the Dark Lord, the Sith Lord, never takes and introduces something entirely new. He always just perverts those things that are good, reverses it, turns it upside down.

That’s how you can spot it. It’s been completely perverted and reversed and reversed – L, I, V, E, live. When you’re snuffing out someone’s right to live, we hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I have a right to live, to live.

Let me show you. I’m going to start in Israel. Today, the world pounced on reports from Gaza police that Israel had bombed a hospital. Okay, that’s pretty bad, right? That’s evil, except there’s no real context here, it’s just Israel bombs hospitals. And we should condemn people who are bombing hospitals, except there’s one little problem, is there any context to this story? Every single little opportunity, as if this nation the size of New Jersey could possibly oppress the billions of Muslims who surround them.

Hamas continues to break cease-fire agreements and rain down thousands of rockets on Israeli civilians. We also showed you the videotape taken from the IDF of the hospital, of the schools. We showed you that they did an infrared scan to see is there anybody in there? Yet Israel gets the blame, and they get the horrible headlines.

I showed you last week how Hamas cowardly hides their stockpiles behind civilian targets. This weekend on TheBlaze there was a story about how they uncovered next to children’s cribs bombs from Hamas. The great pains that Israel goes through to make sure that they hit only terrorist targets, but they can’t do that all the time. It’s war. Those things are rarely reported. Instead, we just go right for Israel bombs hospitals. What? And then into another heroic freedom flotilla for Gaza.

That’s what’s being prepared now in Turkey, the same place the last freedom flotilla sailed back in 2010. We were together at FOX, and I took an awful lot of heat for pointing out the freedom flotilla. In fact, I was the only one. There is no national voice that I trust that is going to be telling the truth about what’s happening on this freedom flotilla.

I remember how much heat I took to not stop pounding that story because nobody else was telling you the story. The world now luckily remembers that event, at least you do in the context of truth, but the world looks at this as Israeli aggression and violence because that’s what the world showed on television. But the truth is much different.

The peace activists knew about the blockade. They were warned when they got close, but they breached it anyway. They prepared for the conflict. They wanted the conflict. They ambushed the two Israeli commandos who boarded the boat. They beat them first with metal pipes. At least one commando was stabbed. Do you remember this video? Another was tossed overboard. The IDF had to use force, but the spin was big bad Israel slaughters innocent peace activists. That’s not what happened.

Now, Turkey this weekend gave the blessing for another freedom flotilla. I want to give you some perspective here. Turkey’s Prime Minister just last week had this to say about Israel: “(Israelis) have no conscience, no honor, no pride. Those who condemn Hitler day and night have surpassed Hitler in barbarism.” That’s saying something because remember, we have all deemed slavery and genocide as evil, right?

TheBlaze TV TheBlaze TV

We know genocide is evil, and the Prime Minister of Turkey is saying that they are worse than Hitler who we know did genocide. That’s quite a statement. It is so far detached from reality, but if it were actually true, let’s just say it was, what he’s saying is the world has a responsibility for getting rid of the modern-day Hitler. Now, I love this logo here for him, and the reason why love it is because it’s very reminiscent of another logo.

And it makes sense because the current administration, President Obama, has a very close relationship with this man, and it’s extremely disturbing. The president has called him a friend. They have shared parenting tips. When the president won his election, he was the first guy that the president called. He says he is a partner in peace in the region, and it’s not just a hey, you know, they punch above their weight. He means it with this guy.

Why would we partner with this man? Why would we, especially with anti-Semitism and bigotry and hate rising all over the Middle East? Does a man who says that the Jews have surpassed Hitler in genocide and evil, is he a guy that we wrap our arms around? People are rioting now in anti-Israel protests all around the country. There were big, they weren’t riots, but they were big gatherings in the United States. But this one is an actual riot, and it was happening in Paris, France.

France has seen some of the worst protests that are anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian. That’s probably the bigger thing here is pro-Palestinian. They were seen making the Hitler salutes. I mean, the last time we had people that were giving Hitler salutes on the streets of France, it was a bad thing, I thought. The world thought was. I wonder where the Parisians are now.

But if Israel is more barbaric than Adolf Hitler, I wonder what the Turkish Prime Minister thinks of what ISIS is doing in Syria and Iraq. Mohamed Elomar, he is a terrorist that originates from Australia, and he has just posed for several pictures that were posted on social media. Most media blacked out these images. A few blogs have the full gruesome images. I warn you that these images are extraordinarily disturbing.

I made this choice because I think it’s irresponsible to not show you the face of evil. You have to know what’s going on, and you have to know okay, so wait a minute, people are defending their right to exist, because in the Hamas charter it says Allah has promised that he would wipe out all of the Jews, evil, genocide. That’s in their charter, and so Israel is making the case, hey, we have a right to live, we have a right to protect ourselves so we can exist, so we can live as a people.

It is irresponsible of me not to show you the face of evil because next they come for you, and that’s not hyperbole, that’s not Glenn Beck fearmongering. What that is is quoting them. Israel is being equated with evil and equated with Hitler, but those who surround them, those who oppose them are not, and this is what they are doing. There is your terrorist.

Okay, this is what they’re doing to Christians and Muslims who disagree with them. Notice the pile of heads. They are chopping off heads in Iraq, and they are smiling while doing it.

Do you remember how outraged we were when we thought that American soldiers would be urinating on dead bodies? This, my friend, is what evil looks like. This is what Israel is up against, heads on pikes and fences.

We have told you this was happening for a while, but we haven’t had the evidence to prove it until now. I believe you have to see the truth. You have to see what evil looks like, because it matters. It matters.

Let me take you someplace I never thought we would actually go. I never thought we would, you know, take the words, in talking about good and evil, take the words of an atheist who technically, again, I don’t think believes in good and evil, but the words of Christopher Hitchens. He was speaking in 2010, and I think this is really important that you listen to what he’s saying.

Hitchens: Because anti-Semitism is the godfather of racism and the gateway to tyranny and fascism and war, it is to be regarded not as the enemy of the Jewish people, but as the common enemy of humanity and of civilization and has to be fought against very tenaciously for that reason, most especially in its current most virulent form of Islamic Jihad.

Our task is to call this filthy thing, this plague, this, this pest, by its right name, to make unceasing resistance to it, knowing all the time that it’s probably ultimately ineradicable, and bearing in mind that its hatred towards us is a compliment, and resolving (some of the time, at any rate) to do a bit more to deserve it.

Amen. Maybe we should do a little more to deserve their hatred. Are we standing up against it? I will tell you that I was shocked when I heard those words because he absolutely is right. He gets it. If you look back in the history, the Holocaust happened once, once, but the attempt to kill all the Jews has happened 19 times. Let’s not make it an even 20. Let’s stand, let’s choose a different path. Let us be the people who say we know the difference.

We could argue all you want on swearing and greed and lying. We can argue all you want. On this one and this one, what do you say we get it right? That’s not a fluky sentiment. This is a pattern repeated throughout history. This is what evil looks like.

Some people are trying to stand for the truth. Hashtag went viral on social media, it’s #JewsandArabsrefusetobeenemies, what a great concept, what a great concept. I know Arabs, I know Palestinians, and I know Jews. And they don’t all hate each other. It’s like, you know, the Cold War. When the Iron Curtain came down, and we saw people, not the leadership, not what the politicians and the leaders wanted us to believe, but people, we were all the same.

But even this now has been co-opted online by the people who want to continue the violence and the efforts to wipe one side out. That’s why we can’t sit idly by now. That’s why I want you to share those pictures with your friends. You have to show them this is who we’re up against. I want you to see the break we have coming up in just a second. I’m going to be talking to a guy who has witnessed this firsthand, and he is calling for people, it is time, it is time to stand and call evil evil.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.

Modern eugenics: Will Christians fight this deadly movement?

Photo by Olga Kononenko on Unsplash

Last month, without much fanfare, a new research paper disclosed that 94 percent of Belgian physicians support the killing of new-born babies after birth if they are diagnosed with a disability.

A shocking revelation indeed that did not receive the attention it demanded. Consider this along with parents who believe that if their unborn babies are pre-diagnosed with a disability, they would choose to abort their child. Upwards of 70 percent of mothers whose children are given a prenatal disability diagnosis, such as Down Syndrome, abort to avoid the possibility of being burdened with caring for a disabled child.

This disdain for the disabled hits close to home for me. In 1997, my family received a letter from Michael Schiavo, the husband of my sister, Terri Schiavo, informing us that he intended to petition a court to withdraw Terri's feeding tube.

For those who do not remember, in 1990, at the age of 26, Terri experienced a still-unexplained collapse while at home with Michael, who subsequently became her legal guardian. Terri required only love and care, food and water via feeding tube since she had difficulty swallowing as a result of her brain injury. Nonetheless, Michael's petition was successful, and Terri's life was intentionally ended in 2005 by depriving her of food and water, causing her to die from dehydration and starvation. It took almost two excruciating weeks.

Prior to my sister's predicament, the biases that existed towards persons with disabilities had been invisible to me. Since then, I have come to learn the dark history of deadly discrimination towards persons with disabilities.

Indeed, some 20 years prior to Germany's T4 eugenics movement, where upwards of 200,000 German citizens were targeted and killed because of their physical or mental disability, the United States was experiencing its own eugenics movement.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas documented some of this history in his concurring opinion in Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, Inc., Justice Thomas describes how eugenics became part of the academic curriculum being taught in upwards of 400 American universities and colleges.

It was not solely race that was the target of the U.S. eugenics movement. Eugenicists also targeted the institutionalized due to incurable illness, the physically and cognitively disabled, the elderly, and those with medical dependency.

In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down Roe v. Wade, which wiped out pro-life laws in nearly every state and opened the floodgates to abortion throughout the entirety of pregnancy. Since then, 60 million children have been killed. Abortion as we know it today has become a vehicle for a modern-day eugenics program.

Since the Catholic Church was established, the Truth of Christ was the greatest shield against these types of attacks on the human person and the best weapon in the fight for equality and justice. Tragically, however, for several decades, the Church has been infiltrated by modernist clergy, creating disorder and confusion among the laity, perverting the teachings of the Church and pushing a reckless supposed “social justice" agenda.

My family witnessed this firsthand during Terri's case. Church teaching is clear: it is our moral obligation to provide care for the cognitively disabled like Terri. However, Bishop Robert Lynch, who was the bishop of the Diocese of St. Petersburg, Florida, during Terri's case, offered no support and was derelict in his duties during the fight for Terri's life.

Bishop Lynch had an obligation to use his position to protect Terri from the people trying to kill her and to uphold Church teaching. Indeed, it was not only the silence of Bishop Lynch but that of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), which also remained silent despite my family's pleas for help, that contributed to Terri being needlessly starved and dehydrated to death.

My family's experience, sadly, has turned out to be more of the rule than the exception. Consider what happened to Michael Hickson. Hickson was a 36-year-old, brain-injured person admitted to a Texas hospital after contracting COVID-19. Incredibly—and against the wishes of Michael's wife—the hospital decided not to treat Michael because they arbitrarily decided that his “quality of life" was “unacceptably low" due to his pre-existing disability. Michael died within a week once the decision not to treat him was imposed upon him despite the efforts of his wife to obtain basic care for her husband.

During my sister's case and our advocacy work with patients and their families, it would have been helpful to have a unified voice coming from our clergy consistently supporting the lives of our medically vulnerable. We desperately need to see faithful Catholic pastoral witness that confounds the expectations of the elite by pointing to Jesus Christ and the moral law.

A Church that appears more concerned with baptizing the latest social and political movements is a Church that may appear to be “relevant," but one that may also find itself swallowed up by the preoccupations of our time.

As Catholics, we know all too well the reluctance of priests to preach on issues of abortion, euthanasia, assisted suicide, and other pro-life issues. We have heard that the Church cannot risk becoming too political.

At the same time, some within the Church are now openly supporting Black Lives Matter, an organization that openly declares itself hostile to the family, to moral norms as taught by the Church, and whose founders embrace the deadly ideology of Marxism.

For example, Bishop Mark J. Seitz of El Paso, Texas, knelt in prayer with a cardboard sign asserting his support for this ideology.

Recently, during an online liturgy of the mass, Fr. Kenneth Boller at The Church of St. Francis Xavier in New York, led the congregation with what appears to sound like questions affirming the BLM agenda. Moreover, while reading these questions, pictures of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, assumed victims of racial injustice, were placed on the altar of St. Francis Xavier Church, a place typically reserved for Saints of the Catholic Church.

Contrast these two stories with what happened in the Diocese of Lafayette, Indiana, where Rev. Theodore Rothrock of St. Elizabeth Seton Church fell victim to the ire of Bishop Timothy Doherty. Fr. Rothrock used strong language in his weekly church bulletin criticizing the Black Lives Matter movement and its organizers. Consequently, Bishop Doherty suspended Fr. Rothrock from public ministry.

In 1972, Pope Pius VI said, “The smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God." It seems that too many of our clergy today are enjoying the smell.

I encourage all who are concerned about the human right to life and about Christ-centered reforms in our culture and our Church to raise your voices for pastoral leadership in every area of our shared lives as Christian people.
