German government to crack down on ‘Shariah Police’ found patrolling night clubs

The German government is condemning the so-called “Shariah Police” who have been spotted wandering the streets of Wuppertal to raise awareness for the strict Islamic traditions. The group of about a dozen men wearing red vests marked with the words “Sharia Police” were seen at nightclubs and a city train station asking passersby not to drink alcohol, gamble, or visit prostitutes.

Below is a photo of the “Sharia Police”:


“Sharia law is not tolerated on German soil,” Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere told the German newspaper Bild on Saturday. “Nobody can take it upon themselves to abuse the good name of the German police.”

According to Deutsche Welle, fundamentalists have declared Wuppertal – “the sleazy nightlife area of the city of 340,000” – to be a "Sharia Controlled Zone."

Wuppertal police are now pressing charges against those seen wearing the makeshift uniform, and Police Chief Birgitta Rademacher reiterated “intimidation or provocation won't be tolerated.”

On radio this morning, Glenn asked Pat and Stu to differentiate between a few similar scenarios involving a religious group spreading leaflets in a community put the meaning of the “Shariah Police” in greater context.

“Now, I've got one story I want to tell a couple different ways,” Glenn said.

Scenario 1: “There are volunteer group that are Christians, that are out walking around the night clubs in an American city… asking people not to drink alcohol, not to gamble, not to visit prostitutes and watch pornography, because they say that it is bad and against God's law.”

“Have a problem with that,” Glenn asked. “Local church group, handing out leaflets, saying don't do this.”

“Not in and of itself,” Stu responded.

Next, Glenn changed one variable in the situation.

Scenario 2: “A local mosque has gathered a bunch of volunteers, and they are doing exactly the same thing, in exactly the same scenario. Some American city, Muslims are just saying, ‘Hey, brother. Don't gamble. Don't drink. Don't use the prostitutes. Don't do pornography.’”

“I'm still okay with that,” Pat said of the scenario two.

At this point, Glenn offered a third situation in which two variables changed from his original story.

Scenario 3: “It's a group of militant Christians in Germany that are now saying, ‘It is bad for you and the motherland for you to visit the prostitutes.’ They have declared this area in a very ‘Brownshirt’ sort of way… A local group of Christian brownshirts are now patrolling the streets in German cities, saying that they are controlling that area, and they are saying that this is against God's law and brownshirt law.”

“It's frightening,” Pat said emphatically. “Because of history.”

Finally, Glenn offered one final scenario – the one that Wuppertal is currently witnessing.

Scenario 4: “Let me change one more variable. It is a group of militant Muslims who have declared Sharia Law in this town in Germany, and they are saying it is against God's law and Sharia Law and you will not violate by going to drink, gamble, using the night clubs, dancing…”

“This is what happened with the Brownshirts… The only reason why everybody did the ‘Heil Hitler’ salute is because you were beaten on the street if you didn't. It was just these guys who claimed to be above the law and everyone was afraid of them,” Glenn concluded. “I told you before, the hatreds of the past are going to come to Europe again. It's already here.”

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."
