Will you stand against the Christian Holocaust?

The Islamic State and other factions of psychotic Islam have targeted Coptic Christians in the Middle East. In fact, it was estimated over 4,000 Coptic Christians were murdered in the region last year. But it's a story you rarely hear on the mainstream media, and Barack Obama and his administration have done everything in their power to strip away any connections between Islam and these insane acts of violence. On TV last night, Glenn asked why more Christians here in America aren't standing up against this horror.

Below is a transcript of this segment:

When Pope Francis comes out and he talks about gay marriage or redistribution of wealth, everybody all around the world, it is headlines, front page, media is all over it, but when he comes out and condemns the complicit silence about the killing of Christians all around the globe as he did on Good Friday, it’s deafening silence.

I seem to remember a promise we made to each other. We seemed to make a promise we would never let the world fall into this darkness again; we would never let a Holocaust happen again, and yet here we sit, willfully blinded, even indifferent, as Christians continue to be slaughtered by radical Islamic monsters. The latest came last Thursday when students at a Kenyan university were finishing up classes and preparing for the holiday weekend. It was just like any other day until radical Islamist terrorists stormed into the campus and proceeded to unleash a violent, ruthless assault that lasted 13 hours and left 147 dead. Many are still missing and unaccounted for.

This is the worst attack since the bombing of the US Embassy in Nairobi back in 1998. They went room by room. They grabbed the students and then began to interrogate about religion. If you were Christian, you were shot on the spot. Many were decapitated. According to witnesses, any student attending the morning prayers at mosque were not attacked.

The terror group responsible, al-Shabaab, they took responsibility for what they called an operation against infidels. “We sorted people out and released the Muslims. There are many dead bodies of Christians inside the building. We are also holding many Christians alive.”

Imagine being a father, your child or your daughter is off at college, and you hear about this attack. You know that your daughter is at that college. The daughter called in the morning in a panic during the attack. Later in the day, the parents’ phone rang again. It was a man on the other end. He demanded that he talk to the Kenyan president within two minutes. The family said we don’t have access to the Kenyan president; we can’t put him on the phone. He said, “I’m going to kill your daughter.” They heard gunshots over the phone. The man said, “She is now with her God,” and dropped the phone to the floor.

In February, 22 Egyptian Coptic Christians were beheaded by ISIS. We’ve shown you this video many times. The intentional move to strip away any mention of Islamic when talking about the extremists, the psychos, the terrorists, makes identifying and defeating the enemy even more difficult. President Obama didn’t even identify the victims’ Christianity when they were beheaded by ISIS on the beach merely for being Christians. By doing so, it keeps the motive for the violence hidden.

According to Open Doors, 4,344 Christians have been killed for faith-related reasons between December 1 and November 30 of last year. That’s double from the previous year. That number is much likely much higher because the group only counts victims who they can identify by name and an exact cause of death can be determined.

Christians have also routinely been targeted in Iraq and Syria. ISIS has become genocidal. They had a march in Iraq’s Nineveh plain last August. Then they moved to Khaybar. They executed and exiled religious minorities like the Yazidis while we did nothing. They destroyed Assyrian artifacts in Iraq while we did nothing. They blew up an 80-year-old Assyrian church on Easter while we did nothing. Christians are being driven from the Middle East in what some have called the new Exodus.

Part of the problem leading to the increased persecution is the fact that Christianity has spread. Kenya is now 82% Christian. Kenya has been repeatedly attacked by al-Shabaab terrorists. We just talked about the university attack. Before that it was the 2013 mall attack where they lined the Christians up, demanded they quote verses from the Koran. Anyone who could was let go; anyone who couldn’t, murdered. Before that it was the 2012 attack on churches during Sunday services—families with their children.

Our world leaders—sorry, calling them that is laughable. Our world leaders are anything but leaders, and they can sanitize the language all they want, but it is psychotic Islam that is causing this. The radicals are not mincing words. This is a religious war for them. This is the beginning of a Christian genocide for them, and it is getting worse. After they’re done with the Christians, they will go to the Jews and the Muslims.

In Egypt, Coptic Christians building a church in honor of those beheaded by ISIS were attacked late at night with Molotov cocktails. They set cars on fire. Stones and bricks were thrown. After meeting with an organizing group, something organized by the local governor, it was decided that the location of the church would be moved.

Last month, ISIS went door to door in Libya searching for Coptic Christians, Christians among a compound housing day laborers. Put yourself in this man’s position. He’s a day laborer. There’s a knock on his door. He opens it at night. He has the horrifying realization of who is standing on the other side of his threshold, and they asked if he and his roommate were Christians. He only had a split second to think. He lied. He said, “No, I Muslim.” They asked if any of the rooms had any Christians in it. He lied again. He and his three friends survived, but thirteen others were taken away. Later they were beheaded on a beach as part of the propaganda video.

Coptic Christians, they are the largest Christian denomination in Egypt and part of the largest Christian community in the Middle East, but they are a minority of the entire population, accounting for only 10%. So you know, a lot of people will say, “What is a Coptic Christian? I don’t know what it means.” Copt comes from the Greek word meaning Egyptian, so all Egyptians at one point were Copts, but over time and several Muslim conquests, they began using Coptic or Copt as a derogatory term to refer to anyone who didn’t convert to Islam.

Remember, Egypt at one time was a Christian nation. Not anymore, and there are not going to be any Christians left in the entire Middle East unless somebody does something. This scene has played out over and over again. It’s played out before. In the upcoming episode of The Root, we are going to chronicle the history of Christian persecution that took place over the last 100 years in the Middle East.

Few recognize it in full context, but when you see it, you will understand what is motivating these extremists, and it’s not American foreign policy. It’s not even our culture. It’s a religious war, and amazingly world leaders are turning a blind eye. The pope admonished, but because he wasn’t talking about redistribution of wealth, no one seemed to listen.

I’ve been talking about this for so long that I can’t imagine why you even watch or listen anymore. It sounds crazy to say it. To Jewish people, it’s offensive to say this is a Christian Holocaust. That word is reserved for a special place, and I understand that, but we better start telling each other the truth. What is coming is a Christian Holocaust. It appears we have forgotten the promise never again.

It’s why Jews are coming up to me now saying, “Please, talk about the Christians.” It’s why we’re seeing more and more citizens, people just like you, pack up and go to the Middle East—not to fight for ISIS, but to fight for the other side, to protect the Christians. We had a guy on the program named Matthew VanDyke. He’s trying to train Iraqis and Syrians to defend themselves against ISIS because we’re not doing any of it.

TheBlaze today has an amazing story, an exclusive video, featuring a group of American volunteers fighting with the Kurdish Peshmerga against ISIS. It is absolutely breathtaking video as snipers have them pinned down, and you hear the bullets whizzing by. One volunteer gets hit in the leg as they retreat. It’s an incredible story and an incredible video.

Why is this happening? Because we no longer as a country—and if I may, we no longer as Christians even stand for anything. The people who do realize what is happening in the world are sick and tired of inaction, so they’re literally doing it themselves. I don’t know if that’s a good idea or a bad idea. They have more bravery than I do.

Another amazing story, a Los Angeles-based nonprofit is also taking action. They’re dedicating their efforts to helping girls and children who have escaped the horrors of ISIS in Iraq. You know what pisses me off? How people just spend their time prattling on about a war on women because of birth control. ISIS is ground zero for a war on women—rape, torture, selling into sex slavery. These are people and families just like yours, and the only reason why they’re being sold into sex slavery and being broken up as families and beheaded is because they are Christian.

We promised never again. Isn’t it time we put up or shut up? And I mean as people. We as people failed to listen to people like George Clooney on the Sudan. We wanted to make it about politics. And I’m not saying us, per se. I asked George Clooney. I remember being in the radio studio a few years back, and I asked George Clooney. I said, “Please, let’s partner with this, because I care just as much as you do.” It never happened because people want to play politics. Let’s not. What do you say let’s not?

Our politicians have failed to publicly denounce the Armenian genocide. It’s the 100th anniversary this month. That is really, really important. Why? You’ll understand when we show you The Root. We’re doing a special on the anniversary of the Armenian genocide, and we hope the world will finally see what the truth really is and why that was important, why it’s important today to recognize what the Turks did to the Christians and the Armenians.

I don’t know what we’re building towards. I do, I think. I don’t even want to say it out loud. This is not separate from my trip to Auschwitz. I feel it in my bones. This is not separate from me telling my children four, five years ago we have to educate ourselves; we have to know who we are; we have to decide to become the Righteous Among the Nations before it begins to happen. I hoped that that would all go away, but I don’t think it’s going to.

I was on Facebook last night because I posted some video, and there’s an update on that video that I posted last night—horrible, horrible stuff. I said, “When are Christians going to wake up?” Somebody said, “What do we do?” I said, “Here’s what you do, you go to your pastors and your priests and your rabbis, and you ask them (A) is there a Coptic Christian church in our area? (B) Can we reach out to them? Can we comfort those who are supposed to be mourning? And why aren’t you talking about this every single Sunday from the pulpit?”

You wouldn’t believe the response I got. So many people said, “What is that going to do?” “Glenn Beck, that’s a dumb answer.” Is it? How about educating yourself first? How about educating others first? How about then going to our pulpits? The American Revolution, the Civil War, and the civil rights movement came and were won from the pulpit first. Our pulpits should be on fire, but our pulpits are barely an ember.

It’s shameful what is happening. Dietrich Bonhoeffer, not to speak is to speak, not to stand is to stand, not to watch is to watch. Don’t you see, because of technology, God is condemning all of us now? We can see it. We couldn’t see the Holocaust before. We can see it this time. He is condemning us.

You say I don’t want to watch it. I don’t know how many people said, “I don’t want to watch it. I don’t want to watch it. I don’t want to watch it.” Why? Why don’t you want to watch it? Well, because you’ll never be able to unsee it. Good. You should be able to watch it and never unsee it.

How many horror movies do we watch? How many things do we see over and over again? We’re putting that garbage, that filth, into our head, and then when it really happens, I don’t want to watch it. Why not? Because you know it condemns you once you’ve seen it.

I’ve got news for you, you have access to it. Not to watch is to watch. You’re making a choice. God will not hold us blameless, so I suggest that you reach out to the Coptic Christians. They are persecuted. They need your help. I suggest that you reach out to your pastor, your priest, and your rabbi, and if he won’t do it, you do it. We’ve got to stand together. There is powerful evil.

Remember what Paulina told me, the woman who was one of the Righteous Among the Nations. She said the righteous didn’t suddenly become righteous; they just didn’t go over the cliff with everybody else. Everybody else is going over the cliff. They’re going over the cliff, and what is the cliff? The cliff is I don’t want to see it; I don’t want to think about it; I can’t do anything about it. Don’t go over the cliff. Don’t. Stand.

You know what’s right. You may not know what you can do. Maybe all you can do is pray like you’ve never prayed before. Maybe all you can do is seek out somebody who is actually going over there and fund them. Maybe you can go over. Maybe you are a priest or a pastor or a rabbi. You were born for times such as this.

Soros is trying to elect MORE TEXAS RINOs. Here's how YOU can stop him.

Texas is under threat of a George Soros-backed takeover.

Soros-funded RINO judges have been elected in some of the highest courts in Texas. These judges implemented restrictions that have blocked nearly a thousand cases of voter fraud from being investigated or prosecuted from across the state. These new restrictions are similar to ones in place in states like George, Arizona, and Wisconsin, leaving Texas more susceptible to election corruption than ever. If Texas falls to corruption, America will lose its largest bastion of conservative electoral power in the nation. Without Texas, Republicans WILL NOT be able to win national elections and liberal corruption will go unchecked across the country.

Fortunately, there is a way to stop this: YOU.

If you live in Texas you have a chance to stand up against corruption and to fight back! Starting Tuesday, February 20th, early voting for the primaries begins, where three of these judges are up for election. Go out and vote. If the right people are voted in, there's a good chance the restrictions will be lifted and election fraud can once again be prosecuted.

But remember, you can't just go in and vote for anyone who has an "R" next to their name. Sorors knows that a registered Democrat would never stand a chance in Texas, so his lackeys register as Republicans and ride the little "R" right into office. So who do you vote for?

Fortunately, Glenn had Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on his show today and Ken gave us his list of judges that he vouches for. His list is as follows:

  • Gina Parker
  • Lee Finley
  • David Schenck
The Primary Election runs from February 20th to March 5th. This is your chance to get out there and make a difference. It might be the most important election you ever participate in. If you need to know where your nearest polling location is, or any other information regarding the election, you can go to votetexas.gov to find out more.
It's time to stand up.

Hypocrisy EXPOSED: The 'Amazon Files' and what WE are doing about it

Who is really banning books?

For years now, Conservatives have been taking flak from the left for supposed "book bans." The left likes to compare these "bans" to Nazi book burnings, accusing the right of sweeping authoritarian decrees designed to suppress information. In reality, this is a movement largely motivated by parents, who want to remove inappropriate books from children's libraries.

But if you want to discuss authoritarian book bans, look no further than the White House. As Glenn recently covered, the Biden administration has been pressuring the world's largest bookseller, Amazon, into suppressing books they disagree with.

On February 5th, 2024, Ohio Representative Jim Jordan released a slew of subpoenaed documents that exposed pressure placed on Amazon by the Biden Administration. The documents, which Jordan dubbed "The Amazon Files" after Elon Musk's "The Twitter Files," revealed an email conversation between Andrew Slavitt, a former White House senior adviser, and Amazon employees. In these emails, Slavitt complained that the top search results for books on "vaccines" were "concerning" and then requested that Amazon intervene. Amazon initially refused, not out of some altruistic concern for the free exchange of information. They thought any action taken would be "too visible" and would further exasperate the “Harry/Sally narrative,” referring to the outrage that followed Amazon's removal of Ryan T. Anderson’s book When Harry Became Sally.

Despite this initial refusal, Amazon agreed to meet with the White House a few days later. The number one item on their agenda was removing books from the website. An Amazon employee even admitted that the reason they even took this meeting was due to the pressure being placed on them by the Biden Administration.

What was the result of this meeting? Amazon caved. They began to implement ways of limiting the outreach of books that challenged the mainstream vaccine narrative and other books the White House might not like.

The White House was caught red-handed pressuring the world's largest bookseller to restrict the sale of books they consider in opposition to their narrative, and they have the gall to accuse conservatives of information suppression. This is just ONE of many actions committed by the Biden Administration that are more characteristic of a dictator than a president.

What can you do about it? Fortunately, you are not dependent on Amazon and its corrupted algorithm to help you find books. Every week right here on GlennBeck.com, we highlight books that Glenn is reading or talking about in our "Glenn's Bookshelf" series. Here you can find a wide selection of books free from Amazon's filters. Be sure to sign up for Glenn's newsletter to find out about new additions to "Glenn's Bookshelf" every week.

10 times Biden has acted like a DICTATOR

The left-wing media's most recent tirade is accusing Trump of being a dictator. But, as Glenn said, "Everything they're accusing us of, they're doing."

Since day one, the Biden administration has overstepped the bounds placed on the executive branch set by the Constitution. In Glenn's most recent TV Special, he examined ten times Biden acted like a dictator, NOT a president.

5 ways to protect your First Amendment rights. Number 4 will surprise you.

Buyenlarge / Contributor | Getty Images

Every day it seems Glenn covers another story revealing how people across the world at all levels of power DESPISE the fact that YOU have rights, and they are actively trying to curtail them. Recently, there has been a string of attacks against the rights outlined in the First Amendment: the freedom of religion, the freedom of speech, the freedom of press, the freedom of assembly, and the freedom to petition.

As a refresher, the First Amendment reads as follows:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

This is powerful stuff, there is a good reason the Founding Fathers made it the FIRST Amendment. It's also the reason why power-hungry elites are attacking it. These attacks are designed to control the way you think, speak, and believe, vote, what you read, and who holds your representatives responsible. The First Amendment is our strongest weapon against tyrants, and they know it.

So what can you do about it? Hope that some wig in Washinton will eventually do something? We know how well that works. The best thing to do is to stay active, engage in the issues you care about, and exercise your rights.

So where to start? Here are a few things YOU can do to protect your First Amendment rights:

Religion

The best way to flex your Freedom of Religion is to—you guessed it—practice your faith. Become an active member in your place of worship, go to scripture studies, invite your friends to that late afternoon event, and walk the life. This can impact the way you spend money as well. Shop the businesses and brands that share your values, and don't shop at the ones that scorn them. Keeping the community alive and healthy is the best way to ensure that generations to come will be able to experience the freedom you enjoy.

Speech

Much like religion, the best way to protect your freedom of speech is... to speak. Engage your friends and family in polite, civil conversation. Stand up for what you believe in, and make your case to your peers. Just remember to keep it friendly. No one ever won an argument by shouting down their opponent. The civil exchange of ideas is the cornerstone of our republic, and a dialogue where the participants are well-informed, considerate, compassionate, and open-minded can have permanent impacts on all involved.

Press

Freedom of the Press seems a little tricky at first. Unless you work for the media, what are you supposed to do? Quit your job and go work for the local newspaper? The good news is that exercising this right is not nearly that difficult. In fact, you are currently doing it. The best thing you can do is to read from outlets that produce informative content.

Assembly

Freedom of assembly is one of the more impactful yet underutilized freedoms in the First Amendment. Peaceably assembling and protesting with like-minded individuals can hugely influence politicians and policies while simultaneously creating community and fellowship between attendees. It's understandable why more people don't turn out. We're all busy people with busy schedules, and flying out to D.C. for the weekend seems like a daunting task to many. Thankfully, you don't have to go out all the way to D.C. to make a difference. Gather some like-minded people in your town and bring awareness to issues that impact your community. Big change starts locally, and exercising your freedom to assemble can be the catalyst to lasting impact.

Petition

If you've been a long-time listener of Glenn, then you will have heard a few of his calls to action where he asks his audience to contact their representatives about a particular piece of policy. There is a good reason Glenn keeps on doing those: they work. Whether it's your local mayor or your senator, a call and an email go a long way. If you really want to make a change, convince your friends and family to reach out as well.
