Listen to why this woman was arrested for her beliefs

Back in December TheBlaze posted an article discussing Satanists winning the right to place a Satanist disply in the Florida State Capital building. When the article was originally released, Glenn, Pat, and Stu went on-air to weigh-in on the debate and discuss the seperation of church vs. state.

This morning on radio, the guys brought up the display in reference to a discussion about the ongoing trend of religious "inclusion" occuring throughout the country.

Susan, from Florida, called into the radio show to discuss her experience with the law while trying to remove the Satanist disply, saying "I'm the person who was arrested in Tallahassee two days before Christmas for attempting to take down the Satanic display in the Capitol Building."

Listen to more of her call below:

Rough Transcript Below:

GLENN: Hi, Susan. You're on the Glenn Beck Program.

CALLER: Hi, how are you today?

GLENN: I'm very good.

CALLER: Good. Thank you for taking my call.

PAT: No, no, thank you for making the call. How long did it take you to make the call?

GLENN: Stop. Go ahead, Susan. What's on your mind?

CALLER: Well, I'm a little nervous for putting myself on the spot like this. But when I heard you speaking about the Orange County schools and the Bibles because of what the Satanists had done, I had to call you.

GLENN: Okay.

CALLER: Because you probably already know this, but I'm the person who was arrested in Tallahassee two days before Christmas for attempting to take down the Satanic display in the capitol building.

GLENN: And what did you do, and what happened?

CALLER: Well, I was already a little familiar about the Satanic temple because I was aware of what they were trying to do in Orange County. And I had heard on the radio, probably a week or two before Christmas, that they would be allowed to put up a display in the capitol building. They had been rejected the year before. They had attempted to put it up last year. The same display. And they were rejected because the display was deemed to be grossly offensive. They came back this year with the same display and a threat that they would sue the State if they were not allowed to put the display up.

And I had contacted the governor both by email and by phone before I realized, you know, what was ultimately going to happen. He said, just they have to do this. Why do they need to do it at Christmastime? Why can't they have their own holiday?

Then three days before Christmas, I heard on the radio, the display in the capitol building had been taken down and replaced with the Satanic display. I said, that can't possibly be true. I had to check that out for myself. I did go to the capitol building the next morning. And it was. The nativity set was gone. And there was this display of flames and a plastic angel depicting Satan falling into hell. I said to myself, no, this absolutely can't be allowed to stand here. Can't take Jesus out two days before Christmas and put Satan in his place. When I attempted to remove it at first -- the security guards, of course, they were very nice, but they're like, no, you can't do this.

So then I'm like, I have to do something. I can't just walk away and let this be here because, you know, I'm a devout Catholic and our faith teaches us we have to -- we have to fight evil. We have to stand up to evil and confront it. So I thought, well, this is the stand I will take. And I did. And I was arrested because of that.

GLENN: So how does it feel to have a record now? To be an extremist?

CALLER: [laughter]

I feel like I'm in good company. I feel like, you know, the Bible is full of saints and prophets who spent time in prison for their faith. And if that's the way it's going to go for me, then I'm proud to be in that company.

GLENN: So can I ask you a question, how do you feel about the state of Florida just giving in and saying, you know what, just let the Satanists take it? How do you feel about -- I mean, if that were happening in the state capitol of Texas, I would have an awful lot to say to our governor. I would have an awful lot to say to our fellow Texans and I would be quite upset if Texans didn't go and rally around the state capitol and say, you fight this. You fight this with everything you have. We don't put Satan up in our -- in our state capitol. How do you feel about those who just said, you know what, we just got to do what we got to do. Put Satan up.

CALLER: I'm extremely disappointed. I feel exactly the same way you do. I wish I had the charisma or the speaking power to be able to rally people in Florida and go to the capitol building and do just exactly that or go to Orange County schools and do exactly that.

GLENN: Susan, there's lots of really great preachers. Why did none of the preachers do that in Florida?

CALLER: I can't answer that.

GLENN: Why were there no Catholic priests -- why were there no Mormon bishops? Why were there no evangelicals? No one seemed to feel like they needed to take up the mantle.

CALLER: I sure wish I had an answer for that, Glenn. I don't know the answer.

GLENN: Susan, I thank you very much for your call. And God bless you on your journey. You have a tough road ahead. As we all do. And tough decisions to make. I don't know what decision I would have made in your situation. I guess, I guess I would hope I would have done the same thing you did. I guess. I'm not sure. I'm not sure. And I'm glad at least somebody is standing up and saying, no.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
