Caller: Beck fans are the most amazing people out there

This morning on radio, Glenn took the opportunity to brag about what an amazing audience you all are. He brought up Facebook, and how so many people would be lifted by our remarkable audience. You.

Glenn said:

I've always had a deep profound respect for our audience. I've always felt -- I say this all the time in business meetings and everything else. People don't understand what our audience is. They really don't. They think that -- somehow or another, what's the secret to your success, like we did something. It's not. It's the audience. I do believe that you're a beacon. Everybody is a beacon. You attract what you put off. And so we generally put off, you know, we believe in a better world and we believe that we can be better than we are and we believe in -- in, you know, make it yourself and stand out your own two feet and question with boldness. And so that's who we're surrounded by. We're surrounded by good, charitable individuals.

Following his praise of the audience, Andy from Massachusetts called into the show. Andy asked Glenn to pray for him as he has been dealing with "some personal demons." In answer to his simple request, Andy was flooded with responses from all of you on Facebook, encouraging him, offering prayers, and saying you were all there for him.

Immediatley after Andy's call, Chris from Montana called in, revealing some personal issues he is also currently struggling through. While Glenn was able to point Chris towards the apostle Paul in the Bible, his true strength will come from all of you sending thoughts and prayers his way.

Listen to these heartwarming calls below:

GLENN: Let me go to Andy in Massachusetts. Hello, you're on the Glenn Beck Program.

CALLER: Hey, Glenn.

GLENN: Hey.

CALLER: I wanted to comment on your Facebook post. I heard you talking about it. Last night I actually commented on that post. And I've been going through a lot. I struggle with some personal demons, so I asked you simply to just pray for me. I know sometimes you comment. Sometimes you don't. Occasionally you do. When I woke up this morning, there were over 110 responses from random people who I don't even know who said that they would pray for me and God was there for me and that's such a humbling thing. Beck fans are the most amazing people out there.

GLENN: Can I you something that's why I said to Pat you should read my Facebook posts. It's not just the posts. It's the comments. We all have trolls, but my fans are getting better at just not responding to them but if they do respond to them it's with love and once that happens, it doesn't happen anymore. They just move on. But the responses from the fans, and the intersection with the fans. Facebook was up in our office in New York talking about our fans. And the way we're interacting with our fans. And they said that there's no one using Facebook the way we're using Facebook right now. And there's nobody that is interacting with their fans the way that we're interacting. And I will tell you that just in the last couple of months, the Facebook experience has changed. You know, just over the last summer, it was -- you know, it was typical. It was typical. It had -- but now people are starting to care for one another. They're starting -- it's an amazing community. And Andy, you're exactly right. And I bet -- did I comment on yours this morning?

CALLER: You didn't but I think you liked it. It was almost -- there was like 250 likes on that comment. I think that you did like it.

GLENN: There was a couple of people that I liked and I couple that I stopped and commented on. That were saying the same thing. Hey, I need some prayers and everything else. And I saw the number of responses on some of these. And it's so heartening. You're exactly right, Andy. This audience will -- once you get into that community, you realize you're not alone. It's -- it's honestly, it's the secret to our summer events. Why they're so important. And it is the secret to -- you know, when -- for instance, with dough this book signing tonight or tomorrow night, it's kind of that same kind of feeling. We get together and you just -- you're just in a room and you're -- the closest I can explain is when you go to Disneyland. And you just -- you know how you get your guard down and you're like, I'm safe and you know that nothing bad is going to be lurking around the corner, unless it's Jeffy. You know, it's just kind of that feeling of I am around a bunch of people that know that the world doesn't have to be like this. And it is so great. Andy, we'll keep you in our prayers. Thank you so much. Let me go to Chris in Montana. You're on.

CALLER: Glenn, first of all, I'd like to say I've been a fan of yours since were you funny.

(laughing).

PAT: Holy cow.

GLENN: Been that long?

PAT: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: It's been that long.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Okay.

CALLER: Yeah.

GLENN: Sorry, Chris.

CALLER: I would really like to thank you. Last week I found out my wife -- we've been having our problems. We've had a really bad year. We have lost three dear members of our family. Two of them was in the same week. In February. It's been a tough year on our marriage. We've been trying to go to counseling. We've been separated since right before Thanksgiving. And last week I found out she was having an affair. And it wasn't a sexual affair but it was an emotional affair. And she had the man in my house. And I'm a truck driver and I've gone five days a week and she told my kids to keep it a secret. And I have to believe there was no sexual anything with that. And I don't think there was. But I'm like, you know what, this isn't worth it anymore. And you know, I've been really looking and thinking about the pivot point that you made, the comment. And this is my pivot point. And I've been on a destructive behavior this whole year. I've been drinking a lot and I don't know where God is or anything. And I was raised Catholic. So anyways, I picked up -- I've been going to the counseling and I'm like, I'm done with that, too. And the counselor said keep the work book and the other day my mind was going a thousand miles an hour. And I picked up the work book and my mind calmed down. And I wanted to keep with the counseling. And I'm like, how do I find God. Well, I was Catholic, so I called a priest. I meet with my counselor tomorrow at 11:00, with a priest at 1:00 p.m. and I'm going today also. And I want to thank you for that.

GLENN: Good for you.

CALLER: You're an amazing person, Glenn. I thank you for everything you've done for all of us. And that's all I really wanted to say.

GLENN: Chris, you just hold on, brother. God exists. And you'll find him. If you turn over every stone and -- if I can just -- if I could make the suggestion, I have fallen in love with Paul, the apostle. Read Paul. Start at Acts and just read Paul. He's such an amazing guy. And every answer that you need is right there. But you'll find God. And He does exist and I'm telling you, you know, I wrote to somebody the other day that if you just -- if you just make a promise to yourself to do no more damage, just I'm not going to fix it. I'm not going to do any more damage and I'm going to go to bed tonight. I'm going to make it through the day. And I'm just not going to do any more damage, and I'm going to keep my integrity. I promise you, you're reaping the seeds that you may have sown even unbeknownst to you. You're reaping the things that you have sown. There's a new harvest. Till all of that ground. Just turn it all over. Now plant new seeds. You're going to be planting a while and it's going to take a while for the season to change. But it will sprout new plants and I'm telling you, if you sow seeds of honor and integrity and decency and kindness and love and charity and forgiveness, I promise you, that that harvest is going to come in and you will not believe -- you will not believe that you are the farmer of that field. I've been there. I know. God bless you. Thank you, Chris.

CALLER: Thank you, Glenn. I love you, man.

GLENN: I love you, too. Thank you very much.

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:

Imagine sometime next year, getting called before HUWAC – the House Un-Woke Activities Committee.

"Are you or have you ever been a member of the un-woke?"

Something like that is not as far-fetched as you might think.

Last week, Robert Reich, the former Secretary of Labor during the Clinton administration, now a UC Berkeley professor, tweeted this:

Since the 1970s, there have been dozens of "Truth Commissions" around the world like the kind Robert Reich wants in America. Most of these have been set up in Africa and Latin America. Usually it happens in countries after a civil war, or where there's been a regime change – a dictator is finally overthrown, and a commission is set up to address atrocities that happened under the dictator. Or, as in the commissions in East Germany and Czechoslovakia, atrocities under communism. Or, in the most famous example, South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation commission addressed the decades of apartheid that ravaged that nation.

These commissions usually conclude with an official final report. These commissions and reports have served as a means of governments trying to close a dark chapter of their country's history, or provide emotional catharsis, as a way to generally move on. Sometimes it kind of works for people, most of the time it leaves people clamoring for more justice.

Here's how one professor described truth commissions in an article in The Conversation last year. He wrote:

The goal of a truth commission… is to hold public hearings to establish the scale and impact of a past injustice, typically involving wide-scale human rights abuses, and make it part of the permanent, unassailable public record. Truth commissions also officially recognize victims and perpetrators in an effort to move beyond the painful past… Some have been used cynically as tools for governments to legitimize themselves by pretending they have dealt with painful history when they have only kicked the can down the road.

See, this is the problem with a lot of "Truth" commissions – they are inherently political. Even if you trust your government and give them all the benefit of the doubt in the world that their Truth commission is trying to do the right thing, it is ALWAYS going to be political. Because these truth commissions are never set up by those who have LOST power in government. They're always established by those who have WON power.

The Deputy Executive Director of the International Center for Transitional Justice says one of the main points in these Truth commissions is that "the victims become protagonists."

A Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility.

So, who are the victims in Robert Reich's America? People like him, members of the far-Left who had to endure the atrocities of four years of a president with different political ideas. What an injustice. I mean, the left's suffering during the Trump administration is almost on the level of apartheid or genocide – so we totally need a Truth commission.

There have been lots of calls for the U.S. to have its own Truth and Reconciliation commission, especially around racial injustice.

This past June, Democratic Congresswoman Barbara Lee of California introduced legislation to establish the " United States Commission on Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation."

Ibram X. Kendi – the high priest of anti-racism, and author of Target's current favorite book " Antiracist Baby" – proposes a Constitutional anti-racism amendment. This amendment would:

establish and permanently fund the Department of Anti-racism (DOA) comprised of formally trained experts on racism and no political appointees. The DOA would be responsible for pre-clearing all local, state and federal public policies to ensure they won't yield racial inequity, monitor those policies, investigate private racist policies when racial inequity surfaces, and monitor public officials for expressions of racist ideas. The DOA would be empowered with disciplinary tools to wield over and against policymakers and public officials who do not voluntarily change their racist policy and ideas.

If you think that is far-fetched, you haven't been paying attention to the Left's growing radicalism. In a Joe Biden-Kamala Harris administration, a Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility. And of course, such a DOA would never stop at policing government.

We're in a dangerous, precarious moment in our history. Given the events of 2020, should Democrats gain the White House, the Senate, and the House, how many commissions will be in our future? They will suddenly have plenty of political capital to drag the nation through years of commission hearings.

And the Left's form of justice is never satisfied. You think it will stop at a T&R commission on race? MSNBC's Chris Hayes tweeted this month about the need for a commission to deal with Americans who are skeptical about wearing masks:

Or what about a Truth commission on religion? I mean, look at those reckless churches spreading Covid this year. Or this would be a big one – a T&R commission on climate change deniers.

The Left is highly selective when it comes to truth. That's why they are the very last group you want in charge of anything with "Truth and Reconciliation" in the title.

This is one of the most incredibly frustrating things about the Left in America today. The Left insists there is no such thing as absolute truth, while simultaneously insisting there are certain approved truths that are undeniable.

So, you can't question "Science" – even though that's pretty much what every great scientist in history did.

You can't question racism as the explanation for all of existence – because, well, just because.

You can't question third-party "Fact-checkers" – because the powers that be, mainly Big Tech right now, have decided they are the Truth referees and you have to trust what they say because they're using certified external fact-checkers. They just forgot to tell you that they actually fund these third-party fact-checkers. It's like if McDonald's told you to trust third-party health inspectors that they were paying for.

The Left thinks it has a monopoly on Truth. They're the enlightened ones, because they've had the correct instruction, they're privy to the actual facts. It's psychotic arrogance. If you don't buy what they're selling, even if you're just skeptical of it, it's because you either don't have the facts, you willingly deny the facts, or you're simply incapable of grasping the truth because you're blinded by your raging racism problem. It's most likely the racism problem.

The Left never learns from its own preaching. For the past 60-plus years they've decried the House Un-American Activities Committee for trying to root out communists, getting people canceled, ruining Hollywood careers, etcetera. But a HUAC-type committee is precisely what Robert Reich is describing and many on the Left want. It's not enough for Trump to be voted out of office. Americans who helped put him there must be punished. They don't want reconciliation, they want retribution. Because the Left doesn't simply loathe Donald Trump, the Left loathes YOU.
