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.

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.
