Why the hate? Glenn responds to negative reaction on ‘Army of Compassion’

On [Tuesday's] TV show, I spoke about an army of compassion. To wake our churches. That, if we don't care about those in Palmyra Syria, instead we only care about the artifacts, not the 70,000 now on the run from Isis we are indeed lost as a country.

I spoke of those who say the root special on the Christian holocaust and how some started funding men who are going over and training the Christians to fight back because they are not receiving US help. We are only training Muslims who are with Isis and against Assad.

I spoke of hatred and rage and how the seeds of anger and revenge are spreading here in America to the streets of Baltimore and St Louis.

God is not dead, our churches are. Our pulpits will not stand for right over wrong. The Gospel is an Applied Science!

Wake, Serve, Stand.

Look at the responses on theblaze.com.

I need your help. Our work begins Monday. It is hard work and we will be called many names. But compassion is what we now lack as a nation.

For those who are being slaughtered, Christian, atheist, those not Muslim enough, straight and Gay.

We each have a roll to play. People feel powerless. You are not. Our pulpits are silent on far too many things.

The only way to win is to follow and live the teachings of Christ. It worked for Mandella, King and Gandhi.

It also changed the world when those 12 men who were left behind actually lived it and risked death by speaking out.

Nazi Germany wasn’t defeated by providing comfort to its victims.

Why should I fight for — or show compassion to — people who are being slaughtered, who would just as soon kill me if I were standing face to face with them and disagreeing with their religion?

They can fight their own fights, or lay down and die. Either way, I do not care…for there is no such thing as a moderate muslim.

To those who believe embracing ISIS as brethren is still possible.

If God saw contrition in the heart of Islam now they would cease subjugation by the sword, fall down and renounce their Jihad.

Do you see evidence of this?

You have only two cheeks. Read my opinion on resistance to martyrdom by the sword of radical Islam.

A few paragraphs of sanity.

George Washington quietly sought counsel with the Lord prior to every military engagement during the American war for freedom against tyranny.

Now see Christian perspective with empathy and judicious patience which results in a just consensus of faith into action.

tzion declines to respond. Hear the Jewish men for yourself at the link (you can use your own ears):

Why did the Jewish men (the “Capos”) kill the Jewish men, women, and children (2500 at a time) while only being supervised by “1 or 2” Germans tzion?

This doesn’t make sense to me and I know you’re an expert on this particular subject. Thank you in advance for your answer.

Glen, you head on over there and set up shop. Invite ISIS to come in and get some compassion. Then, if you’re not beheaded, we may follow.

Wait, I forgot to mention the compassion we showed to end WW-2. Oh, one thing comes to mind… Two nukes dropped on japan. And before that, obliterating Berlin. Yeah, that is what I call tough love. But it brought peace. Lesson learned?

Dear glen. We aren’t the problem. If the crusaders of old took on your strategy, we would all be lowly subhuman moose. Slime

pagans. It’s becoming embarrassing to say we listen to your show anymore. The enemy is upon us. Time to fight.

God’s grace and the conqueror compassion comes after and with the defeat of the evil…In this case the Sons of Satan Islam…And again had we done what needed to be done….Still needs to be done…The companions to defeated would have long happened. And those children today taken by the sons of satan would have never be looking to endure the brutality they will face. Glenn sometimes the good lord gives great power for a reason. Not using it and a people truing away from their roll of using it. Is a slap in gods face. See the day comes and this great power is taken away from us. What companion is left. Out right destroy all and any who want to die for this Satan evil of Islam and to the surrendered give the grace of a conqueror.

I have a feeling Glenn has found that there’s big money to be made in charity work.

An army of compassion. Free hugs for all Muslim killers. And teddy bears and soccer balls for their kiddies.

I wonder whatever happened to Mr. Beck’s meeting with his $$ men. Wasn’t he going to personally begin saving people like Schindler? Wasn’t he trying to like himself to Jesus, MLK and Gandhi just a short time ago?

Good idea Glenn. Put our troops back in the middle of the biggest cluster-**** in contemporary history. Poor fellows need a break.

After many years of beating down the libertarian candidate (2008-2012) because he was too ‘soft’ on middle east, Beck finally admits defeat and adopts the truth that govt military force cannot change people’s hearts……Or at least Beck admits it today, might change his mind tomorrow.

 

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?
