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?

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.


A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?
