Glenn: Why are we more outraged by the Indiana pizza parlor than by Christians slaughtered in the Middle East?

The Islamic State beheaded over 20 Ethiopian Christians in a video released last week - but how much coverage did you see about it on the news networks? It seems like the Indiana pizza parlor that refused to cater a (hypothetical) gay wedding generated more interest from the mainstream media and Christians alike than people being executed for their religious beliefs. Why is that? Glenn gave this important story the spotlight on Monday’s TV show.

Below is a transcript of the opening monologue of Monday's Glenn Beck Program

The video is 29 minutes long, carefully edited, but most importantly, it tells a story, a story that provides a window into the twisted, perverted vision behind the cold-blooded killers that call themselves ISIS.

When we said that they had a mission to end polytheism, what that means is Jesus and God, that is they don’t believe in the Trinity, and they believe that we are polytheists if you’re a Christian. And there is no arguing with them. I want to warn you, I’m going to show you something that is extremely graphic, but I think it is important that we watch at least a part of this video. We will see all kinds of things, but for some reason we always turn away, and that’s how the terrorists win.

For the second time this year, they have captured a group of 30 Christians, and they marched them straight into the seashore before shooting them. The text underneath labeled the captives worshipers of the cross, belonging to a hostile Ethiopian church. There it is there.

In February, ISIS labeled the murder of the 21 Egyptian Christians a message signed with blood to the nation of the cross. The latest video begins with a rant in Arabic about Muslim Christian history and then shows them destroying the Christian churches while declaring Christians will not be safe until they accept Islam.

M: And we swear to Allah, the one who disgraced you by our hands, you will not have safety even in your dreams until you embrace Islam. As Prophet Muhammad stated, our battle is a battle between faith and blasphemy, between truth and falsehood, until there is no more polytheism.

Why won’t we watch this? Why won’t we address this? We watch all kinds of stuff. We watch The Walking Dead, which is just as horrific as what I saw, but that’s not real. So, we watch The Walking Dead, but this is real. This is real. Good God.

The administration did mention Christians by name in their denouncement of the murders this time, something they failed to do in February, but then they called for a political resolution to the conflict in Libya. How do you find a political solution to people who just did that, considering that their goal is to end all worship of any other God besides Allah? That’s a final solution, not a political solution.

Despite the US airstrikes that have been going on for what, seven months now, ISIS continues to gain ground. Thousands of families have now fled Ramadi as US officials admitted the city is at risk of falling into the hands of the terrorists. The question that comes to mind for me is again, why doesn’t it seem that anyone cares? Why? Why does no one care?

When we talked about a Christian pizza parlor just the other day, Christians responded in large numbers when Christian-owned businesses are threatened for their beliefs. Here people are getting executed. Shouldn’t the response be exponentially greater when Christians are literally being beheaded and crucified, children being raped and killed every single day? Why is the response so mute? I don’t have an answer. I have this question, and I cannot find an answer that I’m comfortable with. I don’t know.

I know why China doesn’t care. They’ve been desensitized, trained not to value human life. We’ve seen the results of godlessness in their country. You remember this video? This child is hit by a car, killed, laying there in the streets forever. People walk by, drive by, and no one does anything. So, I get why China. The Middle East, I mean, they’re the perpetrators of this. Body parts are strewn about, chaos, poverty, death, murder, abuse, I mean, this is their everyday life. It’s been this way for thousands of years. They get this. This is what they live. This is nothing new for them.

Europe, why doesn’t Europe get it? Perhaps Europe is so secular, they’re worried so much about multiculturalism, and because they’re so far down that rabbit hole of offending somebody, God forbid Muslims, you’re in trouble. They rarely speak out against anything anymore, let alone Muslims rising up against Christians, or they’ll burn their cities to the ground.

So, I guess I can kind of see how the rest of the world doesn’t react to this, but I don’t understand us. It’s not an excuse. Christianity just isn’t their thing. Okay. I can explain the lack of major action from all of them, but what is our excuse? This is a really bad thought I had this weekend as I was sitting in a Greek Orthodox Church on Saturday. I met these wonderful Greek people, wonderful Greek Orthodox Christians, and I thought maybe we don’t react to these things because we don’t think of the Greek orthodox or the Coptic Christians. We don’t know what the Coptic thing is. Are they Christian?

Because would we care would we care if the victims were Methodist or Baptist or Catholic or Mormon? I guarantee you we would. Is the president right, is it race? If the victims were white instead of Arab or black, would we care more? I thought maybe it’s we’re too far removed from our creature comforts here in America. It’s just not even real to us, and we don’t have the energy to care about anything happening half the world away because our world is burning down here.

The only thing that I come up with that I’m comfortable with is that we feel helpless, and we don’t know what to do, and so we do nothing. A, that’s not an excuse, not from Americans. Necessity is the mother of invention. We’re told all the time, “can’t go to the moon,” “oh, you can’t do that,” “can’t have the internet.” We always think our way out of the box. We’re always told we can’t do it, and we do it. What are you talking about?

There are soldiers right now, we’ve shown you soldiers, American soldiers who have joined the fight, not for ISIS, but against ISIS, going over there on their dime risking their life because they just couldn’t take it anymore. There are churches that are clothing and feeding the Christians over there, people, I’ve talked to them just in the last week. So, I don’t buy into the fact that we don’t know what to do, because—I’m sorry to out my wife on this, and I don’t lecture her on this because she’s the normal one; I am the oddball. She won’t watch those videos.

I can guarantee you if the TV were on at my house today and she was at home, she turned it off before we got to that video. I don’t want to put that in my head. And yet, well watch The Walking Dead. They win if we don’t watch it. They want you to look away. They need you to look away. Did you hear what he said? We will haunt you even in your dreams.

I don’t know why we don’t care. But I don’t believe in coincidence, so let me share a story. Yesterday, I taught Sunday school. It was Matthew 15. Jesus feeds 4,000 people, and prior to that, he has an interaction with a Canaanite woman. Canaanite woman, Gentile, not even supposed to be in that area, just don’t talk to the Jews. Gentiles didn’t talk to Jews back then. So, she comes up to Jesus and she says hey, I need a miracle. The disciples tried to chase her away. She says Jesus, just heal my daughter.

Jesus responds in a really un-Jesus sort of way. I mean, he’s not the Jesus that I know. First, he’s silent. He ignores her, and she’s like hey, dude, I need a miracle. He’s, I guess, testing to see if she would push a little harder. She did, and so then he pushes back. And he reminds her of his primary mission which was tending to the house of Israel. I’m here for the Israelites. That doesn’t sound like Jesus.

And then she persists again. She pushes back, and then he really pushes back, and he says it’s not right to take the children’s bread and throw it to the dogs. Is that Jesus calling this woman a dog because she’s not a Jew? What? Why is Jesus treating her this way? And as usual, the answer is he’s teaching us a lesson—not her, not her, the disciples. Have you ever seen anybody treat somebody really horribly and you’re like, “Dude, what are you doing?” And then you realize oh crap, that’s what I’ve been doing the whole time.

He’s teaching the lesson to the apostles. That’s what you’re saying. You’re calling her a dog; chase her away. She’s not a dog. And her faith was even greater than the disciples and the Pharisees. Her answer to him was even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master’s table. Jesus honors this woman that he’s not even supposed to talk to. He heals her daughter, and her story is etched in the Bible. And she becomes one of the first Gentiles to enter the kingdom, something that at the time Jews didn’t even think was possible.

Later in the chapter, he’s being followed by 4,000 Gentiles. They’ve come a long way. They’re exhausted. Many are sick, they’re seeking healing. He’s like oh geez, the doctor is in, but he says I’ve got to feed them. The apostles were like we don’t have stuff. Are you kidding me? I’ve already fed 5,000. How much do you got? What do you got? Show me what you got. We’ll feed 4,000. The disciples doubt that he can feed so many. They still didn’t get it, but again, he does a miracle and feeds them.

One thing about Jesus is economy of miracles; he just doesn’t waste miracles. There’s always several layers of a point in his miracles. He’s already fed. Why is he doing the same magic trick? He’s already fed 5,000. It’s not as great. He fed 4,000 this time. Last week it was 5,000. Why did he do it? Because last time he did it to the Jews. This time he did it to the Gentiles. The whole point is to see people who are completely different than you, to reach out beyond your comfort zone, to reach out to the outsiders, in some cases people who society considers dogs.

So often we cry out for justice. We raise our hands on Sunday. We call for the enemy to be crushed, but then we retreat into our humble abodes, castles by global standards, and go about our daily lives. And we get busy, honestly busy, wrapped up in our own day and our own chaos, honestly busy, and we forget that the second part of justice is mercy and compassion. That’s our job, to show mercy, to have compassion, to kindle it in our heart and the hearts of others.

ISIS sent a message to the followers of the cross. You want to know the worst reason? I mean, I’ve come up with some really bad reasons on why we don’t hear it, but I just want to ask you, could it possibly be that the deafening silence is precisely due to that reason? It’s a message for those who actually follow the cross and not those who just say they’re following the cross.

Glenn is one of the most outspoken critics of the World Economic Forum and their vision to use crises to reconstruct the world order known as The Great Reset. The recent WEF summit in Davos confirms what Glenn has long warned about: globalist elites seek to upend our democracy, freedoms, and way of life to achieve their utopian climate goals. Here are 15 quotes from the 2023 Davos Summit, revealing their true intentions in their own words:

1. Saving the planet

When you hear the word, "Davos," the first thought that should pop into your mind is an elite group getting together to save the world from imminent climate disaster... at least they think of themselves that way. According to John Kerry:

I mean, it's so almost extraterrestrial to think about saving the planet.

2. Private jets

What most people think when they hear the word "Davos" is a group of global elites flying in on private jets to talk about climate change... and yes, John Kerry does own a private jet, no matter how many times he denies it:

I fly commercial [...] Exclusively.

3. Global Collaboration Village

You always hear some weird, dystopian projects coming out of WEF, like "The Global Collaboration Village," a new metaverse community aimed at strengthening "global cooperation." It sounds like the next installment of Brave New World. According to Klaus Schwab, Founder and President of the WEF:

The Global Collaboration Village is the pioneering effort to use the metaverse for public good, to create global cooperation and to strengthen global cooperation in the metaverse or using metaverse technologies. For me, it's a dream coming true because the village allows the Forum to create a more larger and open platform where everybody can participate.

4. Climate revolution

However, the core theme throughout WEF summits is the immediate need for a climate revolution and how businesses are selfishly blocking the revolution because they want to make an extra buck. Here's how John Kerry summed up the sentiment:

How do we get there? The lesson I have learned in the last years [...] is money, money, money, money, money, money, money.

5. Do or die

This often turns into alarmist language, like having to choose between wealth and our planet's survival... Joyeeta Gupta, Professor of Environment and Development in the Global South at University of Amsterdam, said it eloquently:

If we do the minimum at this pivotable moment in our history, then we and our children – even if we are rich – will live in the danger zone. But if we – business people, governments, citizens, cities – take action today, then we and our children will have a future worth looking forward to.

6. Colossal risks

Potsdam Institute's director Johan Rockström, used similar language, claiming we are "taking colossal risks with the future of civilization":

We are taking colossal risks with the future of civilization on Earth, we are degrading the life support systems that we all depend on, we are actually pushing the entire Earth system to a point of destabilization, pushing Earth outside of the state that has supported civilization since we left the last Ice Age 10,000 years ago.

7. Rain bombs

"Colossal risks" like... rain bombs? We didn't make that up. Ask Al Gore:

That’s what’s boiling the oceans, creating these atmospheric rivers, and the rain bombs.

8. Survival comes down to this

How do we secure our survival? According to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, we have to "end our addiction to fossil fuels." This entails wiping out our entire energy industry, displacing millions of workers, and relying on global governments to usher in a new green industry. In his words:

So, we need to act together to close the emissions gap, and that means to phase out progressively coal and supercharge the renewable revolution, to end the addiction to fossil fuels, and to stop our self-defeating war on nature.

9. Complete transformation

It isn't hyperbolic to argue that the globalist climate goals will completely transform the world economy. Even EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen admitted:

The net-zero transformation is already causing huge industrial, economic and geopolitical shifts – by far the quickest and the most pronounced in our lifetime. It is changing the nature of work and the shape of our industry.

10. Scientific necessity

Of course, to bring about this "net-zero" transformation, we will have to override small, "political expediencies" like democracy to do what is "scientifically necessary." According to Zurich Insurance Group’s head of sustainability risk John Scott:

We’re living in a world right now where what’s scientifically necessary, and what is politically expedient don’t match.

11. Illegal hate speech

Doing away with "political expediencies" would also require the censorship of dissent, which would likely manifest in hate-speech laws. When asked by Brian Stelter how the discussion of disinformation relates to everything else happening today in Davos, European Commission VP Věra Jourová shared this prediction:

Illegal hate speech, which you will have soon also in the U.S. I think that we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law.

12. Climate first

We will also have to forego national interests on the international stage. America won't be able to advocate for policies and interests that benefit Americans. Instead, we will sacrifice national interests for the sake of global climate interests. French economy minister Bruno Le Maire said:

The key question is not China First, US First, Europe First. The key question for all of us is Climate First.

13. The role of war

We can also expect globalist leaders to use crises, like the war in Ukraine, to expedite the "net-zero transformation." Chancellor of Germany Olaf Scholz said:

Ultimately, our goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2045 has been given an additional boost by Putin’s war. Now we have even more cause to move away from fossil fuels.

14. Blame game

Globalist leaders will continue to blame ALL of the crises in our society on climate change to justify the "net-zero transition," from the energy shortage to "mistrust, selfishness [and] xenophobia." Prime Minister of Spain Pedro Sanchez said:

Our present struggle is not only against Putin or the energy shortage. It is also against fear, mistrust, selfishness, xenophobia, and environmental disaster. And its outcome will define life in the West and beyond for decades to come.

15. Sacrifice for the greater good

While we sacrifice our national interests for the sake of the "greater global good," we can expect our foreign enemies, like China, to benefit. Suisse Chairman Axel Lehmann said:

The growth forecasts now for China is 4.5%. I would not personally be surprised when that would be topped.

Conclusion

Glenn has been clear about the distinction between wanting to transition to green practices on your own accord and being forced into that transition by globalist, unelected elites. Leaders at Davos will continue to use alarmist language to justify their crackdown on democracy and freedom to bring about their leftist utopia. We have to cut through the alarmist language and in order to protect our freedoms.

Glenn has focused on exposing the dark side of the gender movements waging our culture war, and now, there's a new "trend" emerging as an offshoot to the transgender movement. A growing online community, particularly of men, who consider themselves "involuntarily celibate" or "incels" believe they can live a better life as a trans woman. Why? This community purports the world is rigged against men, particularly against traditionally "unattractive men." What's the solution? Stop being a man...

Incel or "involutarily celibate" communities have existed online in the dark corners of Reddit and Discord for years. The groups are marked by a hatred towards women, blaming them for rigging the world in their favor and denying them of sex. Several members of this growing community have been responsible for large acts of violence, most notably Alek Minassian, who killed 10 and injured 16 after driving a van into a busy area of Toronto in 2021.

However, the transgender movement has presented a new option for incel members: if you can't beat 'em, join 'em... or, in the Transmaxxers' case, "become them."

The online Transmaxxer's Manifesto says, “Since females have the upper hand on the dating market, transitioning from male to female will usually improve your options when it comes to getting sex.” According to the manifesto, transitioning to female not only opens up a different pool of sexual partners, but moreover, you gain access to female-only spaces and are “able to extract resources from males.”

“Since females have the upper hand on the dating market, transitioning from male to female will usually improve your options when it comes to getting sex.”

Another member wrote, "If you do not currently feel like living as a female you might have to work on fixing that ... Identifying as male or being emotionally attached to a male body is bad for you if being male results in you living a bad life.”

This new movement is significant because it is in stark contrast to the mainstream narrative that "transgenderism" is an innate quality. Now, it can be an "option" people choose for social advantage. A moderator going by the alias “Vintologi” on the Transmaxxing Discord server, which boasts over 1,200 members, told The Daily Caller:

Transmaxxing is about transitioning for personal gain rather than focusing on things like "gender identity." ... What matters when it comes to medical transition is whether or not said transition would actually be beneficial, thus the extent to which gender identity is innate does not inform us much regarding when medical transition is appropriate.

One incel member on Reddit lamented that he can't Transmaxx to "have sex with white trans women" and to have "all the benefits of [being] female."

Transmaxxing sheds light on a concerning issue as an increasing number of people, particularly the youth, identify as "transgender." What used to be considered as a "finge case" is now being seen as a social advantage. Glenn recently sat down with de-transitioner Chloe Cole, and the amount of pressure she experienced to become a transgender man AS A TEENAGER was ASTOUNDING. She discussed the new community, friendships, and affirmation she gained when she started her transition journey, and she lost ALL of those social perks when she began de-transitioning. She exchanged affirmation for death-threats, friendships for stone-cold silence.

Transmaxxing is a very specific example of a larger movement that is deeply concerning. Not only is the thansgender ideology problematic on its own merits, but now, we are seeing a rise of a distinction of "social advantage" based on gender affiliation. This is deviating away from the original notion that transgenderism is an innate quality. Now, many consider it more "socially advantageous" to identify as transgender than with your biological gender.

At the same time President Biden's misplaced classified documents were sitting in his house, garage, and office at the Penn Biden Center, a whole lot of Chinese money was flowing around him. Is this just a coincidence, or did the Chinese get anything in return? Investigative journalist John Solomon joins to break down what was going on here ...

Here are 5 RIDICULOUS moments from the Davos summit

Glenn has been warning about the dangers of the World Economic Forum and The Great Reset, which is the WEF's goal to utilize the crises like the COVID pandemic to create a leftist Utopia. Now, these goals continue to take shape at the World Economic Forum summit in Davos. Here are five ridiculous moments from this year's summit that shed light on their ultimate vision Glenn has been warning about.

1. Ex-CNN host Brian Stelter hosts the WEF panel on "disinformation," calling for the criminalization of "hate speech" in the U.S.

The former host of Reliable Sources was fired from CNN in 2022 for raking in the network's worst ratings since 2019. CNN's CEO at the time, Chris Licht, accused Stelter of "drawing ire from conservatives" for misrepresenting the facts and propagating false narratives to demonize conservatives. Licht fired Stelter because he was a liability to CNN's attempt to "re-brand" itself as a "reliable" news source.

You would think the World Economic Forum could have found a more credible host for its "disinformation," than Brian Stelter, and it comes with little surprise Stelter's panel called for the continued censorship of conservatives.

Stelter asked his panel, "How does this discussion of disinformation relate to everything else happening today in Davos?"

Vice-President of the European Commission Vera Jourová answered "illegal hate speech" from right-wing extremists, and then called for the criminalization of hate speech in the U.S., asserting, "I think that we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law" within the EU.

As former Trump advisor Stephen Miller pointed out, Stelter's refusal to further challenge Jourová's call for censorship is indicative of his failed career as a journalist.

2. Al Gore warns of "rain bombs," "boiling oceans," and "xenophobia" as a result of climate change.

Gore's speech "speaks" for itself...

After asserting that we're creating an "open sewer" in the troposphere, Gore exclaimed:

That’s what’s boiling the oceans, creating these atmospheric rivers, and the rain bombs, and sucking the moisture out of the land, and creating the droughts, and melting the ice and raising the sea level, and causing these waves of climate refugees!
Watch the latest video at <a href="https://www.foxnews.com">foxnews.com</a>

Speaking of refugees, Gore blamed the mass migrations of people on... you guessed it... climate change! Of course this leads to "xenophobia" and "fascism," so if we hate "xenophobia" and "fascism," we need to stop climate change IMMEDIATELY. Plus the rain bombs...

Does this sound reminiscent of the "Man-Bear-Pig?"

3. Siemens AG Chairman Jim Hagemann urges for 1 million people to NOT eat meat—predicting a "meatless future."

It wouldn't be a World Economic Forum summit if bugs didn't take center stage. Siemens AG Chairman Jim Hagemann said he was inspired by his 24-year-old daughter to stop eating meat to fight climate change and urged one million people to stop eating meat to balance out jet emissions—like the jets his fellow attendees used to travel to the conference?

Here's what he said:

If a billion people stop eating meat, I tell you, it has a big impact. Not only does it have a big impact on the current food system, but it will also inspire innovation of food systems."

Of course, finding "alternative sources of protein" means... you guessed it... BUGS. The EU is already cutting down on cattle farms and promoting the building of insect farms to initiate this "protein transition."

4. John Kerry calls Davos attendees a "select group" with an "almost extraterrestrial" plan to save the planet.

Kerry's opening speech at Davos shows the type of elitism the attendees believe about themselves. They are the "special ones" who can gather at a Swiss resort town to discuss how to "save the planet" and the "little people" who are too ignorant to have a say in the matter. His words speak for themselves:

When you start to think about it, it's pretty extraordinary that we — select group of human beings because of whatever touched us at some point in our lives — are able to sit in a room and come together and actually talk about saving the planet [...] I mean, it's so almost extraterrestrial to think about saving the planet [...] f you say that to most people, most people think you're just a crazy, tree-hugging, lefty liberal, you know, do-gooder, or whatever, and there's no relationship. But really, that's where we are.

Well, not everyone was amused...

Businessman and conservative Tim Acheson called Kerry’s words, "Liberal delusions of grandeur." Jordan Peterson also tweeted, "Who are you going to sacrifice to save the planet, @JohnKerry -- and do you think and how will you ensure that they have any say in the matter?"

5. Davos attendees traveled on more than 1,000 private jets to the conference.

Greenspace, an environmentalist research group, estimates the total emissions used by Davos attendees on their private jets while traveling to the conference is equivalent to "about 350,000 average cars."

Greenspace also found that 53 percent of all private jet trips were short-haul flights of less than 470 nautical miles that "could have easily been train trips." This comes amid the EU's push to ban short-distance flights and opt for train travel instead, which many continue to point out.

Closing thoughts

What once sounded like conspiracy theories are now taking shape amongst the global elites at Davos. As Glenn continues to shed light on the dangers of the World Economic Forum, here's how YOU can fight back against their goals that threaten our freedoms and democracy.
