Glenn: After Coptic Christians were beheaded in Libya, there is much more yet to come

Beheadings of Coptic Christians in Libya. Dear Lord, what have we done?

RELATED: Clinton on Qaddafi: "We came, we saw, he died"

I don't know anymore what to say about the news. It is all of my worst nightmares and warnings. The collapse of Libya, Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood, the Caliphate, Jews being targeted in Europe, the rise of fascism and the Nazi Party. Now the targeting of the west by the caliphate in the heart of Europe. All of this I spoke of. All of this could have been avoided if we weren't so arrogant. Me included.

If we would have all stopped playing politics. Me included.

If I would have been a better messenger. I have made so many mistakes. Please forgive me. I beg of you to hear the warnings of what is yet to come.

There is so much more yet to come.

These are the birth pangs of things yet to come, these are the beginnings of sorrows.

I cannot give you any solutions. I have no worldly answers. We must humble ourselves and turn our face to God.

I spent a few minutes listening to Winston Churchhill speeches today. Most wanted to appease in late 1940 just as they do now. No one wanted to call Hitler evil.

It is normal. No one wants war. No one wants slaughter.

We all want to believe that if we all just talked we could find a path for all to journey together. Evil is hard to comprehend. But we must try and call it out by name.

There are times when a civilized world must stand for what is right. Now is one of those times.

Evil does exist. It has a name and it is ISIS and radical Islam.

We face a times when more than our wants and needs are at stake, but the very future of civilized mankind.

Our children and grandchildren will thank us or curse us based upon who we choose to be right now.

We are fortunate to live at this time for we are given the opportunity that only comes times of great strife, struggle and sacrifice. We have a chance to find out who we really are.

I know we are more than what we have allowed ourselves to become. We are more than what our politicians tell us we are.

We are a great, kind and generous people. We are not conquerers. We are not a nation of warriors. We are a charitable and Godly people, that when called upon, we hesitate. We wait, debate and at first deny.

But when push comes to shove we find something uniquely American calling us and stirring our souls into action.

Will we choose to rise up and be greater men and women than we have allowed ourselves to become this time? Or will we continue to eat, drink and be merry? Will we continue to believe the lie we all want to be true? That this too shall pass! It isn't any of our business! We can ignore the beheadings, spend our way out of debt, deny God and His most basic principles and continue to be blind to what our culture has become.

We can continue down that path and everyday the price we must pay will only grow higher.

These are extraordinary times. Extraordinary events are on the horizon and moving toward us with great rapidity.

But the good news is: WE ARE EXTRAORDINARY PEOPLE!

Let us all choose to stand shoulder to shoulder and arm in arm ready to bear the burden and pay for our mistakes. Let us free ourselves from the shallowness of our commercialism, apathy, pessimism and petty divisions.

Let us be willing to live and die to free our brothers and sisters of all nationalities and religions from the terror of the beasts that have grown in the shadows of ignorance and hate.

Let us once again remember the teachings of Christ, Gandhi, and King, that the greatest weapon we can wield is Love. Let us find it once again in ourselves and then in one another as we prepare for the events of the coming days.

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."
