Here’s what Glenn has to say about the Satanist display at a Capitol building

TheBlaze's Billy Hallowell recently published an article stating that Satanists have won the right to place a “grossly offensive” holiday display next to a Nativity scene inside Florida’s state capitol in Tallahassee. The display is said to feature "an angel falling into burning flames, Bible verses and a 'Happy Holidays' message." This morning on radio Glenn weighed in on the debate and shared his opinion on the separation of church vs. state.

GLENN: So I talked to one of the guys up in New York today and they said, I'm on my way to my — I'm on my way to my daughter's Kwanzaa party. And I said, what?

PAT: What?

GLENN: Yeah. The school is having their Kwanzaa party today. I said, get out of New York City. Get out of New York City.

PAT: I think you've said that before.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I have.

PAT: The Kwanzaa party, good.

GLENN: You got that going for you.

PAT: Did you also see —

GLENN: In Florida?

PAT: Yeah, the Florida thing is agonizing, because we have to now all of a sudden — we have to treat everything equally. And that's not the constitutional — that's not constitutional. Nobody — there's nothing in the Constitution that says every religion is equal. This just isn't.

GLENN: Hang on a second. All they are saying is they wanted to put a diorama of an angel falling in hell with a banner that says, happy holidays from the Satanic Temple. That's all they're saying.

PAT: Is that too much to ask?

GLENN: The state of Florida said yes, you can but the satanic nativity scene up in the Capitol —

PAT: This is.

GLENN: I have news for you. Destruction is coming our way.

PAT: That is what we're going to do for sure. You can't treat it as an equal because it's not. It's not. Satanism is not equal to Christianity, Judaism, Islam. It's not — Satanism — and how many people practice it in America? Five. 666? I don't know. It's — you don't — the Constitution says that the government shouldn't get involved in religion. That's what it says. And it — Congress should not pass a law regarding how you worship. When you put up a nativity scene at the state Capitol, that's not Congress enacting any law. And when Satanists come to you and say, well, we want equal time, you tell them tough. You're not getting it.

GLENN: Why, Pat?

PAT: Because you don't deserve it.

(laughing).

GLENN: No, here's the thing. It is the definition of evil.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Satan is the definition — he's the chief elf of the evil kingdom.

PAT: You don't give equal time to it.

GLENN: No. You don't — you call it what it is. Evil. You are the definition of evil. And when you show me what good the satanists have done, you let me know. But I'm going to judge them by the fruits of their labors. And if you really are a Satan worshiper, by definition you are drinking blood — you are sacrificing things to the dark lord. I mean do, we need to watch an episode of "Star Wars" again to see that doesn't work out well?

PAT: Or Harry Potter?

GLENN: Any of them.

PAT: Any of those —

GLENN: Any of them.

PAT: Show you the road that that leads to.

GLENN: "The Godfather" will show that you. Evil, bad.

PAT: But —

GLENN: I don't know, do they know this? That in "The Exorcist,"" the girl with the pea soup —

PAT: Vomits?

GLENN: She was the bad — that was the bad character in that movie?

PAT: Her head spun all the way around.

GLENN: That was satan that was doing that.

PAT: Yeah. That was not a good — that wasn't happy time.

GLENN: No, it wasn't. You know what? I have to tell you, if I were was — if I had were in the state Capitol, I would refuse to go into it. If this is what this Capitol has become, to where this Capitol will not say no toe welcoming satan — "no" to welcoming satan into its doors, I have no place here. You can meet me and I will vote outside on the lawn. But I will not enter a building that houses satan and welcomes satan into its front door.

PAT: That's how lost we are, though. I mean —

GLENN: I bet you there's not a single person — in the south, in the — the south is — I expect this from Massachusetts. Like satan, we were out drinking the other night, he was a great cat. In the south. Where are your baptists. Where are the preachers. In the south. I open the door to the Capitol and I want to talk about riots in the streets. There should be peaceful congregations that are gathering together and going as a congregation —

PAT: I've not heard a peep out of anybody, though.

GLENN: It's crazy. It's absolutely crazy.

PAT: That's how effective they've been in twisting this thing and what our values really with.

GLENN: Here's the thing. Here's the thing. George Washington received a letter from Aaron Burr. 2:00 in the morning Aaron Burr has a bullet in his head. He's in battle.

It's the battle of Stoney Point. Aaron Burr gets — not Aaron Burr. Mad Anthony Wayne. He has a bullet in his head. He's in battle. They shoot him. They pull him off the battlefield. He wins the night. Surge yon says we have to take the bullet out of your head. He says give me a piece of paper and pencil first. He writes a letter to George Washington, 2:00 a.m. It says, Dear General — your men behaved like men who were determined to be free. General Wayne. We are not acting like men determined to be free. We don't even know what it means to be free. They chose to be free. They declared themselves free. Let's see, what are we? Are we going to be slaves to the king or free? Raise your hand if you want to be free. You know what that means, right? Yes. But you're choosing that, right? Yes, I am. It's not enough just to choose and say it. We have to declare it. So we will write down this piece of paper a decoration of our independence, that we're going to be free, that that's what we are. Damn the consequences. We are determined to be free. We were born free. We were given freedom. We didn't earn this freedom. None of us even chose our freedom. We just were given freedom. That's why we don't value it. We have to choose our freedom. Then we have to declare, I am a free man. I will remain a free man. And that means free of debt. Free of debt. Free of things that tie you down and make you do things you don't want to do. Oh.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Behave like a man determined to be free. And if you just let that slippery slope go, I guarantee, shackles will be around your legs. You can't do it. Cast off the shackles. Cast off anybody who is — is coaxing you into that slippery slope. Cast it off. Determined to be free. Choose it, declare it, live it.

PAT: And what freedom means in this religious context with the satanists, they can practice that if they want to. They're free to do that. What they're not free to — to go ahead and display what they — their evil at a state Capitol. You don't have that freedom. You don't have that right. We don't have to let you do that.

GLENN: Christianity has earned the right not in the Dark Ages. But in this country they have earned the right to be at the table. And I have news for you. I have a problem with a lot of Christians. A lot of Christians. And I might talk about one today. But I have a problem with a lot of Christians. And they've made a lot of mistakes. We all have. All of us. We've all made mistakes. But for the most part, the reason why America is the most charitable nation in the history of the world is because we're Christians. We're Judeo-Christian people. We worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. And because of that, because we actually live it, not because we go to church, but because we live it and we are determined to serve Him and we declare it. We're not declaring it anymore. We're Christians and you're being told not to declare it. Your children are being told that — think of just the damage on this. They can't say Christmas. That instinctively teaches them that there's something wrong with Christianity. There's something wrong with God. If I can't talk about God, there's something wrong. I don't know what it is. No, we're not saying there's anything wrong with it. We just don't want you to bring the Bible to school. That teach them something is wrong with that. And that mommy and daddy if they believe it, society says mommy and daddy are crazy. So not only are we not declaring I will. You've got to start declaring. I made a promise to God last -- in the last 12 months. I promise you, I believe in miracles. You show them to me and I will declare them. I am not afraid of standing and saying, that was a miracle. And we have seen them, starting with the "Man In The Moon." I mean, there's one that — the 20,000 people saw. It hadn't rained in a hundred years on that weekend. It rains on that weekend and I mean rains. I mean, it pours. It pours rain. What happens? We get together, all of us, and we pray. 20,000 people. We pray. There's a double rainbow over the stage. It clears up. It was absolutely miraculous the way this thing happened. We had — we didn't even have a chance to have a rehearsal for the "Man In The Moon." Because it had rained all weekend. We picked that weekend because it hadn't rained in a hundred and some years. We joked and said, well, it's due for it.

PAT: This is — you know, it's in a desert where they get eight inches of precipitation a year.

GLENN: And I bet —

PAT: I bet they got it that weekend.

GLENN: I bet they got five to eight inches just that weekend.

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:
